moderated Re: Using hyphen


in the first example, it is auto correcting the dash or hyphen into the HTML equivalent? just guessing.

the first says "in dash". by line, word and letter. and the second
doesn't say anything other than the two words by line and dash by word
or letter. I wonder why it is adding the "N" sound to the dash in my
setup. It is a distinct N sound not an on sound.

Kevin,  Your first example does indeed say “On dash” when reading
letter by letter, but doesn’t say anything when reading by line.  The
second example just says “Dash” when reading letter by letter and
nothing when reading line by line.  I am using JAWS 21.  I have
noticed this in earlier versions of JAWS as well.

I’m using Windows10 , Jaws2021 and Outlook2021 most recent versions.

Since the most recent update with Jaws2021 I will use a hyphen and
when it is between two letters with a space between it sounds like is
saying on. I then delete it and it then says dash.

Here is an example:

Hello – goodbye

Does this say on between the words? Has anyone encountered this issue?

Below is an example when I type the same as above, then delete the
hyphen and type it back in.

Hello - goodbye!
