That is two more syllables than exclaim uses, not a good idea.
Bang is only one, but that is too distracting IMO.

Roger,
Yes I cleared it. Now that I've gotten used to itI suggest that ,
factorial
should replace exclamation in the dictionary!

Did you clear the text in the replacement field completely before typing
in factorial?  If not, then what was there before would just be joined
to what you type in so it would say 2 things instead of one.

I like it factorial.

I found only one other instance of exclamation point and apostrophe
and
they both said all. After I changed those, now it is working. There
aren't 4 of anything that needs changing but just 2. At least it's
doing
what I want it to now!

I don't know why that is. If you are doing things correctly,
then
there appears to be a problem with your NVDA extension or perhaps
with
Windows that is keeping the change from being implemented. I don't
know
if the installed version keeps the changes in the program or in the
registry.

But some things should be clarified to save people unnecessary
work.
First, at least when I tested with an old version of NVDA, you don't
have
to save the configuration. These settings are independent of the
configuration. So be sure you want to change what you are changing.
Unlike other changes in NVDA, once you make a change here, it
remains, even if you apply the saved configuration before you save
the
current one.

Also, sentence ending means what is says. If you just change
sentence ending, it will just change sentence ending. You don't have
to
change the sentence ending setting if you want to change how the
symbol
is
spoken everywhere. You can just change the setting for the symbol
that
has no description of what the setting affects. For example, there
is
an
explanation point setting that doesn't say sentence end or anything
else.
Changing what is spoken for that item will change how it is spoken
everywhere.

That's just what I did for the exclamation point and the
apostrophe.
Both of them are still saying bang and tick. The replacement
field
has
my changes saved, but they just don't take effect.

for this task, no add-on is required. Open the dialog, arrow down to
the
symbol you want to change and press alt+r, type in the replacement
word,
tab to OK and press enter. Repeat for all items you wish to change,
then
Press NVDA+Control+c to save your configuration
