Re: Fw: [espeak-ng] The UK £ sign

I wonder if the fact that the 1/2 symbol is not being processed properly is
part of this problem. The symbol is ½, and it's being spoken as "symbol bd"
instead of "one-half".

Hi folks, is this an error in the latest version of NVDAs defaults? Can I
change this and not muck other stuff up?

Hi Brian,

this is an issues in NVDA.
The puound £ sign it is included in dictionaries for the emoji on
espeak-ng.
NVDA 2018.4 doesn't uses emoji dictionaries from espeak-ng, these files
are removed during compiling NVDA.
As you know, NVDA 2018.4 includes all emoji and symbos from Unicode
Consortium, and the pound sign appears in the symbols list, but the
pronunciation level for this symbol should be changed in NVDA.

Probabily the sign Cents and euro present the same issue.

In speechPlayerInEspeak the problem not exists, the pound sign is in the
standard dictionary for english (EN_LIST).

Hope my explanation is clear.

Chris.

I seem to be finding in Espeak NG as used in nvda it is only spoken when
its cursored past. IE not if a line or say all is used. Now iyt cannot
be a punctuation level issue as the old version of Espeak in Speech
player in Espeak when selected as tthe synth seems to be OK. Is it me or
what?
