It does have it for single character strings. I believe what they
are asking is if there are multiple character repetitions whether
that feature is active.
Here's an example of what I mean.
NVDA doesn't have a setting for such strings as does JAWS sand

have it. If it didn't, you would hear something like equal
repeated as many times as it appears on a line. Instead you hear
twenty equals, if there are twenty equals uninterrupted on a line.
If your punctuation isn't set at a level where the sign is spoken,
you will hear nothing. So with equal, if punctuation is set to
none, you won't hear anything. With punctuation set to some or
higher, you will hear the announcement. However, I know of no way
to turn the feature off or on and I don't know if that matters.

You might want to maybe put that issue in as a github issue, or if you can code, make an add on if one does not exist.

JAWS has it, it's called Filter Repeated Characters, and is under Text Processing.
As far as I can see, NVDA doesn't have it.
All the best

Hi all, I just received an email from Amazon and it contains a string of "equal sign" (about 22) in part of the email. Window-eyes will read "equal, equal, repeated 22 times".
NVDA and JAWS will read 22 times of the "equal sign". Obviously, Window-eyes is is the better option here. Does anyone know if NVDA or JAWS has such feature? Thank you.
For a nation to admit it has done grievous wrongs and will strive to correct them for the betterment of all is no vice;
For a nation to claim it has always been great, needs no improvement and to cling to its past achievements is no virtue!
