Locked Re: apostrophe pronunciation

Tyler Spivey

There are two apostrophes and two exclamation marks. Type each of those symbols in the search box to find them, and change both.

Thanks for your advice. Worked wonders. I have successfully changed the pronunciation of tick and it now pronounces apostrophe. However I am not having the same success with bang. I want to replace it with exclamation. I have followed the same procedure as apostrophe but oddly no success.
Thanks again

NVDA doesn't have a restore defaults button in that dialog, but this
will work:
1. Find your user configuration directory. If you're using an installed
version of NVDA, Pressing Windows+r and typing %appdata%\nvda should put
you there.
2. Delete symbols-en.dic.
3. Restart NVDA.
