Re: Issues with number presentation and beeps


 

Nancy,

Can you give some specific examples of various numbers and how you would like for each to be read?

As others have noted, how numbers get read is very much dependent on the synthesizer in use.  But, you can also play a lot of useful tricks with the dictionary (or dictionaries) on an as-needed basis for some constrained set of numbers (as in if it's no greater than ten thousand) with regular expressions that would allow you to parse a given number that is two through five digits into its component digits when reading it.  It's just impossible to do for something "of unknown, generic length."  There would also be the issue of whether you want the same for numbers with decimal points, which is another thing that can be done.
