Re: Reading emoticons and Kazakh language for eSpeak NG


I think that isn't a problem.
In voice setting dialog by default the level of symbols is "Some", and the level for each emoji in the dialog Punctuation/symbol pronunciation is "Some".
You can customize these levels as you prefer, but by default NVDA reads emojis as expected.

Hello. I managed to solve the problem. In the NVDA menu, a submenu of
Preferences, there is the item "Punctuation/symbol pronunciation...".
This dialog box has all the smilies. You need to select the desired
emoticon and the "Nothing" level and save the changes. In this case,
the emoticon will be read correctly. This should be done for each
emoticon, which, unfortunately, is not very convenient. And you need
to make changes for each language. I hope these problems will be fixed
in the next updates.
Thanks for attention.

probabily you are using "None" as level for Punctuation/symbol
Raise the level to "Some" or more with nvda+P then try to read emoji.

Make sure that the checkbox "Include Unicode Consortium data" in the
voice setting dialog is enabled.

obviously, the emoji dictionaries from aren't available on
NVDA 2018.4.

Could you please give me the address of a page - there are different
ways of representing things which end up looking the same, and I want to
make sure I'm comparing the same thing as you.

I also noticed that some emoticons are pronounced only when if you
move the cursor arrows on it, as if you want to read the previous or
the next character. And if you read, using the up and down arrows,
they are not pronounced, only the word "Graphics" is pronounced.
