the reboot did not change anything - as expected.
@Ralf I had 2019.2 (do not know which one exactly) installed on
this computer (and still have it on my notebook) and there it
works as expected.
when I get back home, I can look at the version of nvda where
it worked last.

at my end, but it was the same under 2019.2.1

punctuation feedback while typing in v2019.3.1
Have you restarted the computer since
you updated NVDA? I just tried type a. with speak typed
characters on, and NVDA read "A dot" just as you
expected. I don't have Eloquence, but it worked the same
with eSpeak and with Windows OneCore voices.
Occasionally you get random bugs (such
as this) after installing or updating the software but
before restarting the computer. Restarting the computer
shuts everything down and loads again from scratch so
usually fixes up these random on-off issues.
Also double check that you have speak
typed characters on as well :)

Since the update the feedback of special characters and
while typing has changed when you set the feedback to
normally special characters and punctuation was spoken
their keypress together with any other characters, that
have been typed
example of old behaviour:
feedback: a dot
this is very problematic as you now do not get any
feedback on typed
special characters and punctuation. Try to type a smiley,
you won't hear
it. just silence.
Tried that with eloquence and espeak. So the speech/voice
does not matter.
Hope this can be fixed
and additionally I would suggest to add a option/choice to
special characters (and numbers) should be spoken
emedeately on their
keypress or together with other characters as whole words.
could decide, which they prefer, as there where
discussions in the past
but right now it would be important to get back any
feedback for theese
special characters and punctuation.
