Re: NVDA reading all punctuation marks


Hi Vaibhav

If Word is set to show all paragraph markers, toggle this setting with Control + Shift + 8. Ensure you use eight on the number row.

This is probably a settings change in Word. There is a short cut command to toggle the command on and off but I haven't found it so far. I have Word starter on my machine, not a full version of Word and it is an older version of the limited word. I can probably give you instructions that will match your version of Word based on this program but I'll see what others have to say. In my version, the item controlling this behavior is in the paragraph grouping of the home ribbon. Its a button for showing all marks or some wording like that.

I've found about it is that NVDA is only reading those punctuations in
word. This thing is neither happening in notepad nor in web browzers.

Hi all,
Today when I was reading one of my files which is in Hindi language,
while reading the text, NVDA started reading all the punctuation
symbols except the full stop one and I was unable to resolve it.
Even reducing the symbol level did not do any good. I am current
using its beta 2020.4 version and I did not have this problem when I
was using NVDA 2020.3. Does anyone have any sollutions for me?
