Re: NVDA says "link dot" even when Symbol Level is Set to "some"

You have allowed your question to be answered with the additional information.  With my punctuation level set to some, I hear dot if there is something wrong such as if I accidentally have typed two dots instead of one.  I am writing this as constructive criticism and not specifically to criticize you, since I see this happen many times.  When describing a problem, it is important to discuss the conditions and not leave things out.  What you currently stated is an important condition.
 
To hear no periods in the case you describe, dset punctuation level, set with Numpad key, p to none.  I never hear dot spoken no matter if the period is in a link or not with this setting.

If you are using the say all command or reading line by line , then maybe your punctuation level needs lowering, try setting it to some and see what happens then

Possibly because Theres a dot at the end of the link, but without any examples its difficult to give an explanation why it says dot in your case

 

Hi,

I'm talking about when the dot is out of the link. For instance:

I’m not sure why this is happening.  This may solvve the problem.

You can try setting the level for the actual symbol to high.  That means it will only be spoken in high.  I’m not talking about setting the general level.  There is more than one case for determining when a period is spoken. 

 

Ok, thanks for the suggestion. I will give it a try.

I'm using One Core.  It's the same with SAPI5.

Hi everyone,

 

I've been wondering why NVDA says "dot" after reading a link on a web page or any where else, even when the say symbol is set to "some".

Are there any uses for this happening? Because I don't see any uses for this. Is  there a way to modify this behavior?

I tried using speech dictionary  to modify it, but without any success.

 

Thanks
