I have noticed with especially ends of words in espeak at any
rate not sure with the fest but they seem to pop at the end of
words and sound more abbrupt especially at the end of sentences.
It doesn't always happen but enough times a user would notice.
It doesn't mean the user can't use the software but you notice it

We did rewrite a lot of the speech code, although
for now this shouldn't be an overly different experience, it was
more to make future changes and maintenance easier. Evidently
you've found something that does work slightly differently.
does anyone know whether there have been changes to the speech
processing part of NVDA in the 2019.3 update? I didn't spot
anything in the change log, but I experience a couple of
things that are different from the 2019.2.1 version.
The first one is very minor ... when I tag an email in gmail
so that it goes into an existing folder, I press c to go to
the combo box listing all folders, then I press a letter
corresponding to the first letter of the folder name - such as
f for my Facebook notifications. Once focus is on Facebook I
tab over and activate the Go button, which applied the label
to the email. Since 2019.3 the letter I pressed (in this case
f) gets spoken when I tab over to the Go button; this did not
happen before 2019.3.If I need to press the letter more than
once to continue past Facebook to Farming and then to Fiction,
NVDA now announces "fff" which is mildly annoying!
More of a problem is when I mistype words ... I regularly
mistype because as becuase and words ending in tion as toin
... I suspect when I've done this and immediately select the
word and retype it without presing space to move onto typing
the next word. As a result the first mistyping doesn't get
spoken straight away ... it gets spoken as I press space or
punctuation ... and it merges the mistyped word in with the
correct version, and they are seemlessly connected like they
are one single word, becuasebecause ... the same happened in
this post when I mistyped punctuation as puncutation and got
"puncutationpunctuation" as a result.
The only irritation with this is that it makes it difficult to
tell whether the subsequent attempts at spelling the word
correctly has removed the typo or whether it is still
I'm curious whether this is an intentional change and, if so,
what the thinking behind it is.
