Re: How to get NVDA speak a word

I just tested my idea and it doesn't work. Dot isn't spoken if a dictionary entry is added using dot in the pronounced as field.

Gene, reading your message my synthesizer read the extra letter 't'
but not the word 'dot'.

In the following message, I have misspelled the word dott to try to get your

synthesizer to say the word.

And looking at all entries in both the default dictionary and the voice
specific dictionary doesn't show an entry for dott? If not, I don't know
what the cause might be.

Whatever the possible cause, the easiest solution, if no dictionary entry is

present, might be to add an entry for dott. Create an entry for the word
dot, and for the replacement field, write the word dott, the same word you
write in the pattern field.

Brian, I have done both of those.
My OS is Windows 10 and I use the latest edition of NVDA.
Where do I go to configure NVDA to speak the word 'dot'?

If you have, then take a look at your NVDA dictionaries and, possibly,
your
synth. I have no issue with the word, "dot," being read when I've got
it

in
a sentence. I'm using NVDA 2020.4, OneCore David. I've got nothing, in
any
dictionary, that matches on the three characters of the word "dot" in
any
way, shape, or form.
