That’s exactly what CodeFactory does, so I don’t know why Brian was writing all that, since everyone can have what they want, and the default is the same as Vispero’s.

Brian, you wrote:

Perhaps not for everyone. Ideally, what I think would be a reasonable solution would be a screen reader setting to either allow or enable synth-specific exceptions or to have them disabled. Disabling them would basically give you a "what you see is what you hear" experience. I realize that some users might find it maddening to go through a list of addresses and continually hear s t and b l v d instead of street and boulevard but your examples of s t pronounced as saint instead of street is why I think this is so important and is personally one of the reasons for why I think Eloquence still has many users.
