Can somebody tell me how I would pronounce this? Is it just how it looks?

I am not Sikh by any measure, but will shortly be formally meeting an older Sikh couple and thought it might be respectful or pleasing to them for me to use "Sat Sri Akal." It sounds like it has become universal enough that it would not be inappropriate. I see in the pictures above that Sikhs are using a "namaste"-style hand gesture when giving this greeting; is that solely the province of Sikhs, or should I do the same when pronouncing Sat Sri Akal?
