Just for reference, if you ever need to know how to say the callsign, the cheat sheets are on the quick ref cards for each airport on the support page. Some of them aren't immediately obvious, but for the ones you listed I can shed some light on the meanings for the curious!

CFS - "Empire" Empire Air began its business as "Clearwater Flying Service." So the callsign is a historical nod.
SWA - "Southwest" Makes immediate sense as SouthWest Airlines
AMF - "AmFlight" Shorthand for "Ameriflight."
DAL - "Delta" Makes immediate sense as well but it's just Delta Air Lines
CTA - "CharTran" Char-Tran and short for Aero Charter and Transport, a company that specializes in private charter planes and FBO services.
ASH - "AirShuttle" Pretty self explanatory: Air Shuttle.
BTQ - "Boutique" Boutique Air, another private charter company (which actually started doing regular scheduled flights, but still flying typical smaller private aircraft)
AAL - "American" Self explanatory: American Airlines

Hi All,
Some may see it as cheating but if you right click on the aircraft on the scope the callsign pronunciation will be displayed. This works for all general aviation planes too which is the most straightforward way to know what the program wants as a spoken callsign for them. Incidentally, if you want to issue commands via text this is the easiest way to enter the callsign.
Best Regards,
