It is not unknown, yes. The neighboring country writes it. To many, that's 
the main Azeri, since it's the official language of the country.

If they can read English or any other Latin alphabet, yes, they can.
Modern Azerbaijani is very phonetic. I (who don't know Azeri) can read it
aloud to an Iranian Azeri speaker who can't read or write, and he will
understand it.
