Question regarding interpunction reading


lutztiger.luigi@...
 

Dear list,

 

I’ve been using JAWS and NVDA 2017 (prior big update) for a long time. Recently I have installed the current version of NVDA.

 

It seems like there have been made changes regarding how interpunction is treated in the text-to-speech modules. NVDA pauses much longer at the end of sentences for example. I believe brackets are also treated differently, creating longer pauses. This pausing, probably having some advantages, dramatically slows down how fast I can go through texts and confuses me when working.

 

How can I make NVDA read text like it used to in versions of 2017 and prior?

 

Best

Just to make sure by current version you mean NVDA 2020.3 - right?

what synthesizer are you using now, and what synth were you using with
NVDA 2017?
