Re: what NVDA echos

Hi Gene,


I too am seeing the same weirdness.  I am running NVDA 2017-3 and the MS One core voice David.  It is reading cup from his email as Cuban Pesos.  He had it spelled with lower case letters and still it says Cuban Pesos.


This is not the only weirdness i have experienced in several of the synthesizers.  This is also not the only word that it says in a strange way.  I tend to fix them by making speech dictionary changes to correct them.  I have tried to find the offending dictionary entries so I could just remove them but have not been able to find one in most cases.


Hope this helps.

If cup is the abbreviation for Cuban pesos, adding an s may cause it not to be recognized since it isn't the correct form.  Are you objecting to the slash or the Cuban Pesos?  How is your punctuation set?  You will have to set it to none not to hear the slash. 
 
Also, let's be sure nothing is being overlooked.  It is unlikely that the word cup would be read as Cuban pesos by any synthesizer or screen-reader.  If it were, then any time the word cup were found in text, it would be read as Cuban pesos as in "My Cuban pesos runneth over."  So check the recipe.  How, exactly is it written?  Is it written as cup or as cp?  Is it small letters or capitalized?

Well I removed decaccess32 and using the one core voice David and still
hearing 1 slash 2 cuban pesos flour. for the following line.
1/2 cup flour.
And if I add s to cup, it says it correctly.  Stilled baffled!
