Problems with english £ sign in Espeak NG in laatest release

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>

Hi, While proof reading some documents in Word today using the latest nvda and its inbuilt Espeak NG I encountered an issue. although it can speak the £ sign when cursoring through a line, it will not say it when reading lines or in say all. However installing Speach player in Espeak fixes the problem. Can somebody sort this out?
I could send a message to Espeak group, or raise an issue on nvda, but I suspect this is an Espeak issue and as such might be better if somebody who is an NVDA developer approached the Espeak team, as it is probably just a small issue.

Here is a test bit of text to try it on.
