– For this word, the “A” turns into an true-schwa, for the “cc” combination – the first “c” is hard, the second “c” is soft (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue), the “e” is short, the “p” is (often) stopped, the “t” is pronounced like the letter “d”, and since the root-word ends with the letter “t” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending turns into an i-schwa, and the final “d” is a flap-d but is (often) stopped

/ək-SEH[P]-dih[d]//ək.ˈsɛ[p].də(ɪ)[ɾ]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable and that the “d” ending (when not stopped) acts as a third syllable
