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

Acapella, which I've used with another screen reader, takes this to a whole new level with the text string TVs, as in "how many TVS do you own" as it reads the string as "t versus"

Kevin, my Vocalizer Tom Enhanced speaks your example perfectly as g d not good.

 

Which voice are you using exactly?

Hi.

 

I’m encountering an issue with Vocalizer and JAWS. It’s substituting what it thinks something should be, and it’s wrong. Let me illustrate.

 

There is a ham radio called the GD-77. Vocalizer says it’s the good 77, and that’s not right. The letters should be spelled out. I tried to do a dictionary entry for the word, but it didn’t work. I also never knew Google had a service called grams mail. This is annoying, and because of it I’m back to good old Eloquence. I prefer Vocalizer’s speech, but not with all the so-called “helpful” abbreviation conversions.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Kevin and Jilly
