It is. It doesn't let you do it at synth level, only Window-Eyes ever did that.

Dear Steve & List:

JAWS also permits control of expansion of acronyms & abbreviations; however, this may be only for HTML documents.

The only screen reader that I know of that allowed you to turn off
expansion Of abbreviations was Window-Eyes. Therefore, if that is
possible, NVDA should be Able to do it on a synth-by-synth basis.

All the best

I despise modern voices for doing anything but light reading. Espeak
is Decent, but in my view the best two synths for fast reading remain
Eloquence and doubletalk. If I want to get correct spellings, I will
use a more Modern voice. ...but then you get random pauses for no
reason, miss pronouncing random words like bourbon and expanding
acronyms that I do not want.

I cannot win.

I to do agree that modern voices are unintelligible at fast, even
moderate speeds.

I as you know made the variant Quincy for UK English Espeak and am
happy with it in the main if they would stop mucking about with
words that sounded right before. However I do also feel that the
speech player in Espeak project was very good and I'd like to see
somebody take this up again to make it better for the US market. One
has to realize now though that the biggest growth area for NVDA is
the Indian Subcontinent, and maybe other languages than English.

Why should they do this? You are effectively stopping Code Factory
from making money. Just buy Eloquence and be done with it. Besides,
Microsoft would not maintain it.

Subject: [NVDA] possible eloquence solution It seems like unless
this problem is solved it will keep coming up. So I just went into
feedback hub and I recommend all of you do the same.
I wrote the following feedback to Microsoft.

Please purchase all rights to Code Factory Nuance Eloquence TTS.
Offer it as a free downloadable sapi 5 and OneCore voice add-ons
under ease of access in windows 10. And on the Microsoft website as
sapi 5 for windows 7 users. Also, please maintain the android
version so it keeps working and perhaps lower the price to $2 or $3.
Nuance Code Factory licenses are too restrictive. Adding Eloquence
to Microsoft’s voice portfolio would benefit those with hearing
impairments. So if Microsoft owned it, whenever you buy a copy of
windows or a new pc, you also pay for the rite to use eloquence on
any pc you buy. And if you don’t want it, you just do not go into
ease of access and download it. Nuance copyright is stuck back in
the 80's and early 90s and has to change. If not, this issue will probably keep cropping up.
