Re: mariana islands


You can use the speech dictionary in JAWS and NVDA to stop this.  Tell it to pronounce the abbreviation as you wish.  This isn't NVDA.  It’s the synthesizer.

According to Google, the abbreviation for Northern Mariana Islands is

I wonder if there is a setting to tell it not to interpret
abbreviations.  there isn't in JAWS, and I wish there were.  I want
to make the interpretation myself, thank you very much.  (LOL)
