Maybe it depends on your punctuation level?

 

I tried this with Vocalizer, and the word Section was spoken to me.

 

All the best

Hi Brian!

 

I am using Vocalizer Expressive.  I am aware of the ASCII command method in Word for inserting symbols, but in this case I used the JAWSKey+4 method.  However, Either way it ought to be spoken.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Richard,

Have you by any chance changed synths?   I ask because the section symbol can be inserted by typing 167 then hitting ALT+X immediately afterward in MS-Word.  Its unicode keystroke is ALT+0167.

It could be a character that one synth "recognizes" with a name and another doesn't.

It is the function of creative men to perceive the relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expression that may seem utterly different, and to be able to combine them into some new forms--the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.
