Re: A weird case that kills NVDA

I've noticed in more than one mail client some synths do stop working when you find somebody has made the from or subject line look the same but used some oddball selection of character set which you can often see by looking at the headers of the message.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sounds like a bug in the synth to me, as most may say junk or go silent on the word but then come back again. I imagine spammers do it to try to get around filters looking for specific strings to identify spam, which is of course what you did, but do be careful, since congrat could be part of a work in a wanted message. Also the person sending such stuff will, I have no doubt find another word to use to get his or her spam though.

Subject: Re: [nvda] A weird case that kills NVDA
I am using the SAPI version of Vocalizer, the South African English voice, Tessa. Yes, it is quite possible that Tessa is getting choked up, not NVDA as such. I'll give your suggestion a go some time.
