JAWS is reporting the correct way that Outlook
and Word produce the hyphen character by default. For example:
The short hyphen with a space on either side, is
called an "n dash" because, the hyphen is the same width as a capital
letter "n". This is the same as typing "space hyphen space".
the long hyphen with a space on either side,
is called an "M dash" because, the hyphen is the same width as a capital
letter "M". This is the same as typing "space hyphen hyphen space".

Is it perhaps not saying “on” but the letter “nn (as in Norman). If
you type a hyphen with a space each side of it, that’s what it reads.

I’m using Windows10 , Jaws2021 and Outlook2021 most recent
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
Below is an example when I type the same as above, then
delete the hyphen and type it back in.
Hello - goodbye!
