How to pronounce August Dvorak’s last name in English?

I read an interview in Byte magazine about 1992 with John C Dvorak, the nephew of the “keyboard guy”. John is an IT writer often mistakenly supposed to have invented the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard (his uncle August did that in 1936). John said “we say ‘Divorak’ in our family”.
