moderated Re: Is there a way to not have Vocalizer substitute what it thinks works for abbreviations?

Van Lant, Robin

There was a passing mention on the recent FS Open Line about an upcoming version of Vocalizer.  Eric said it wouldn’t be in the first release of JAWS 2021, but they hoped to add it into an update.  Not sure why, but I had this sense from the comment that the update might allow some pronunciation update that I’d be looking forward to. Not sure about the abbreviation assumptions we are talking about, but I’m honestly surprised by some of the odd pronunciation of standard works that Vocalizer has. Yet, I put up with them or make the dictionary changes, because Eloquence just doesn’t’ work for my ears.

What did you use in the dictionary?

You could try a regular expression match on:  GD-(\d{1,})    and replace with Gee Dee \1
This should make GD- followed by one or more numeric digits read as Gee Dee followed by the actual number that the string of digits represents.
