Latin Pronunciation

While I know that most text books devote a chapter or two to explaining the pronunciation of Latin, I am still baffled by the jargons. Also, I heard that there are different versions to pronounce Latin, is that true? And what is the 'ecclesiastical' one? Is that pretty much the way Italian is pronounced? If no, what's the difference? A million thanks.

It's more complex than a database, since some words mean more than one thing (moneo, as an example). So if you were trying to find the translation for 'cogitare,' you could enter it and the program would spit out the various meanings. You could also search from English to Latin ...
