I certainly don't see a crash, but I'm not using the current version of Espeak any more, the old version instead.

If that is the work around it should be in the user manual and also it should be protected against accidental entry I'd have thought.

Sure. Just put two backslashes.

Hi Group,


On one list I am subscribed to, an individual using a foreign font or
character set has a back slash in his address field. With NVDA it reads
&#92;. I looked up this expression and found it was a back slash
symbol. When I tried entering this expression into the NVDA speech
dictionary and substituting back slash for the proper pronunciation,
NVDA locked up. I had to run Narrator and remove the item from speech
dictionary to restore NVDA to usage.


Has anyone else noticed this issue and if so, is there a solution?
Thanks in advance.
