NVDA and pausing for specific punctuation


Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

While listening to text does NVDDA know to come to a full pause after a period and a momentary pause after a comma?

It does, but how much it pauses is entirely dependent upon which speech synth you are using.

Your best bet is to write something up in notepad, and test the pauses, if you want to know more.

I don't know if the synthesizer controls that or the screen-reader.

This was discussed recently, and at great length.   I thought it was on the NVDA group, but it might have been the JAWS group or Win10 for Screen Reader Users group.  It is as definitive as it can be that this is a synthesizer controlled function, and there was even discussion of how to edit .ini files to change this (which I wouldn't recommend).

I did just find the two topics related to this, and they are in the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group.

This one, making oneCore voices read more like eloquence, is about the basics of trying to change parameters related to voice speed and other timing.

A closely related topic, Taking Ownership of System Files under Windows 10 , came about because getting permissions on the ini file that you have to edit is a non-trivial thing for OneCore voices.

As this is all synthesizer driven, and screen reader agnostic, it applies as much to NVDA as any other screen reader.
