Seems to be a firefox thing, prices are said differently in IE11.

Hi Group,


If you visit the web address for BJ's Wholesale Black Friday preview:

http://www.bjs.com/blackfriday.content.minisite_blackfriday2017.B#/bflist/Week


you will swee the prices on some of the items read very strangely.


I tried with the E-Speak synthesizer, the SAPI 5 Eloquence voice, the Microsoft Core Voices and with JAWS and they all read the same.


What is causing this? Is it really a massive misprint? Or is it just an oddity with the way numbers and dollars expressions are rendered to screen readers on this particular page?

lry strange. for example, the televsions like Samsung have a listed price of $99999
