moderated Why are basic symbols not being spoken?

Richard B. McDonald



I am using Windows 10 and JAWS 2020.  Various basic symbols are not being spoken presently, when in the past they were.  For example, below is the “section symbol”:




Instead of JAWS speaking “section” it says “character 167.”  This symbol was inserted above using the JAWSKey+4 command.  So, it is not some rare, strange symbol.  In the past, JAWS use to properly speak it.


What has changed?  Is it, perhaps, some setting in my speech scheme or some other setting?
