Re: NVDA problem with hashtag symbol

Brandon Cross <bcross3286@...>

I was able to get it working by going into the symbol pronunciation and setting the hash mark to always be sent to the synth and replacing it with a blank space in the replace field but this is hackish, now you can't see it if you are reviewing char by char etc. I think this could be solved in the dictionary for that voice wwith NVDA's dictionary manager with use of a regular expression, however I am not sure which form this should take. Maybe someone could come up with a more elegant solution.

You set so?
Symbol: #
replacement: #

Preserve: always.

In the replacement edit write the symbol instead of the name.

The Acapela TTS allows usage of special codes to get the TTS to laugh, cry, cough and so on. To get the desired sound you need to type for instance #LAUGH01#, #CRY01#, #COUGH01# and so on.

However NVDA seems to always process the # symbol even when you select to let it pass through to the TTS, so there seems to be no way to let these sounds work when using the Acapela TTS with NVDA, as NVDA always read like "pound sign laugh 0 1 pound sign"

I do not know whether this issue can be solved by configuration or needs some fix into the code, is anyone able to shed some light on it?

Thanks in advance!
