Re: Weird Abbreviation Processing Mid-word?


I’ve been experimenting and the bug occurs in The following circumstance, which makes it clear what the problem is.  If I write a number, I used 1 then space, then write capital Mar and that is all I write, March first is spoken when I read that text on the line.  What is happening in the example given in the original message is that a number, followed by mar, whether more is written or not, results in this misreading.  The abbbreviation or short form is applied whether it occurs in a full word or by itself.  The letter m must be capitalized for it to be treated as an abbreviation for March and the date. 
Here is another example. 
1 Mayflower

Hello Clement,

I also get the same result using Eloquence from Kurzweil. This has been
true for me for the past year or so with NVDA. I haven't a way to cure
the problem. Hopefully someone here will have some ideas. Thanks for

It is trying to say “may first, Mayflower.”

I would think that this bug doesn’t occur often when reading.  If igt occurs more than rarely for certain kinds of reading, I’d be curious to know.
