Re: a problem with speech dictionaries again.

I am using MS David.  could be the issue since it pronounces many things incorrectly but not certain how to determine this.  Will have to try some other synths.

Actually it works here for me. It says “blind tech” without a dictionary entry. What synth are you using? I’m using eloquence.

Hi Gene,


I thought about that and did check it and triple checked it. 


This occurs in the subject of emails from the blind tech mailing list.  I looked and it is showing up exactly as I typed it.  I checked the case of letters, made sure there weren't spaces in the string and other things.


The other instances of bracketed strings I have entries for are from other mailing lists and they work perfectly but this one does not.

where does this text occur?  Can you chec it, or have you, for spelling and punctuation?  There is probably something in the way it is written that differs from how you are writing it.

I have tried adding a dictionary entry for "[blind-t]" and gave "blind tech" as the replacement string.  I have added this to the default and the voice dictionaries.  NVDA still pronounces "[blind-t]" as though it doesn't see my dictionary entries.


I also set case sensitivity to unchecked and type to anywhere and whole word.


I am running the latest RC and am running Windows [Version 10.0.19043.1348].


Any ideas why NVDA won't recognize that I have a dictionary entry for this?
