of course you are right.
I disabled the addons and checked it again.
Found out, that there is "symbol notifications" (Symbol
this one is not compatible with 2019.3.1 which causes the
strange behaviur ...
still - I think this makes no sense and should be fixed in nvda
itselve, because the punctuation and other non alphabetical
characters have to be read as words in word mode - rather than
be ignored silently.
Will check if the addon has a new version / if I can change it
to py3 syntax if not. - But guess there where more changes in

I just checked it again with 2019.2.1. I have
the same symptoms there as you describe in 2019.3.1
Please do me a favour and go to your 2019.2.1
installation and press NVDA-Q and restart NVDA with addons
disabled and give it a try. If you then see the
misbehaviour you got an addon loaded under 2019.2.1 which
does what you want.
as anounced I looked up the version of NVDA where it last
nvda v2019.2.1 gives the feedback as expected.
a "." is spoken emedeately. Other "words" are spoken on
space or at the keypress of such special characters.
In V2019.3.1 special characters still trigger speaking of
words, but are not spoken themselves.
This should be fixed as soon as possible as typing in word
mode is no longer manageable.

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.

chars off and typed words on. And that can beconfirmed
at my end, but it was the same under 2019.2.1

Subject: Re: [nvda] special characters and
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
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 :)

I searched for this problem, but could not find a
topic on it ... so if
this already was asked, I am sorry...
Since the update the feedback of special characters
while typing has changed when you set the feedback
to "words" and
normally special characters and punctuation was
spoken emedeately on
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 choose wether
special characters (and numbers) should be spoken
emedeately on their
keypress or together with other characters as whole
words. So users
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.
