Re: Special simvle

If you want a symbol rather than an emoji, you can use Windows' charmap - press the windows key, type the word "charmap" and press ENTER.

You can use this dialog to find different characters.  The default simple view lets you pick a font, then arrow around it and find characters.  If you check the "advanced" checkbox, you can search for characters - for instance I searched in Arial for "bracket" and found just the square and curly brackets.  When it reads each character in the list, it reads something like: "U+005D: Right Square Bracket".  If you know te appropriate ASCII code, you can also type that in many places, by pressing alt and then a numerical sequence.  For some reason, that code is in hexadecimal (base 16) but you type the code in base 10 (alt+093 will give you a right square bracket).  Note that in order to type those codes, you need to use the number pad (with numlock on), not the number row.

Can you be a bit more specific on what you are trying to achieve in nvda?
 Are you wanting to allow nvda to read a special symbol or are you perhaps
asking on how to create a particular symbol in a document, this is a windows
query and may be more applicable on a windows list.
 Often this sort of thing depends on the language windows is set on and the
language the installed version  has loaded.
