Re: noticed reading issues
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Since I upgraded to Win10, I am noticing some sluggishness in Windows explorer, Outlook 2013, and at times it is slow responding to keyboard commands in Word and Outlook. I have to issue the command twice to get a response.
I appreciate the help and learning I am getting from the list.
Thanks and blessings to all

And what I'm telling you is that the first version of the question does not read correctly, to my ears, in either NVDA or Window-Eyes and the second two read precisely the same way.
Since double exclamation points and double question marks (and/or combinations thereof) are not uncommon I have no issue with a screen reader reading these without any extra string of punctuation.
I agree that a terminal space before the question mark itself is syntactically incorrect and the words should be read followed by "question mark" announcing the punctuation. There is no case in written English that I know of where a question mark can "free float" and be syntactically correct. It is always firmly attached to the final word in a question construction.
I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
