classical Greek pronunciation w/out IPA

Sorry to be difficult here. It's becoming clear to me that I need to learn IPA, but since there are about a hundred other things on the list of things I need to learn - including Spanish, lock-picking, and Linux - it may not happen soon.

In the meantime, can anyone provide (to a US English speaker) any guides to the pronunciation of the classical Greek word which I find transliterated as 'Iokheaira'?

(It's one of the names given to Artemis, and supposedly means 'far-shooting.' I don't have the actual Greek for it.)

Mainly, I'm not sure what to do with the three vowels in a row, and I'm not sure how the stresses/length of syllables go in classical Greek.
