Well, that is why the only accurated transcription is using IPA (or, less, other philologic transcriptive systems).
In French, a vowel with an acute accent, é, will be ever pronounced [e], not [ε] nor [ej] (or [εj]). The English AY represents a compound sound ([ei]), not simple ([e]): bait, cane; then, AY is not a correct transcription to the Spanish E or the Catalan and French É.
(Despite that the English [e] sounds to my ears a lot more open and near to [ε] that the French and Catalan [e], and that is why in my message I explained wrongly the problem with the transcription no-ay-MEE.)
