Could it just be looking at words with caps inside the word other than at the start?


I type ve3rwj and hear "victor, echo, 3, Romeo, whiskey, Juliet".
And there is no pause between that string and others in a sentence, so it can't be too computationally demanding.

I just experimented a bit more, and strings starting with up to three letters are read phonetically, such as abc3 (alpha, bravo, Charlie, 3). But as soon as I add a fourth letter, Jaws goes back to trying to pronounce it as a word, for example abcd4.
