Re: Number and Abbrieviation Processing

Good Day: I apologize for seeing your message a little late. Is
it possible to turn off date process and/or number processing?

It can be done with NVDA's speech dictionary.
You'd need to use a "regular expression" (regex) to avoid having
enter every possible combination of numbers. Actually another
way (since I haven't ever sat down and properly learned regex,
and I haven't fully thought this through) I just tried, is to
make a speech dictionary entry to change "." (period or full
stop, no quotes) to "dot" (d o t, again no quotes).
don't know if this is two issues or one and if it's something
can be done within NVDA. I use the Windows core voices
although it occurs with the Microsoft SAPI synth as well. I
want dates or abbreviations to be processed. For example, the
version of NVDA, 2019.03.01 is read as "March 1, 2019" instead
"2019 dot 03 dot 01". Additionally, I am hearing hello.pl as "hello
dot place" instead of "hello dot p l." Obviously, I know I
the dictionary to teach NVDA to read "pl" as "p l" but there
be dozens of these abbreviations. I look at software versions
so the first example is driving me crazy.
Is there a way within NVDA to say ignore date processing and
abbreviation processing? I definitely have been unsuccessful
how this would be done with the synthesizer software. If
there is a
synthesizer that has this level of control that won't hit my
too hard and actually has a real sounding voice, I'd be
going that route if it's my only option.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
