Hello James, different languages and web sites using different quotes - sometimes NVDA speaks the last word between quotes as single characters.

I assume you mean it spells the word? This is an issue with the speech synth being used. Some synths will spell a word if they detect an unknown character. Please confirm if this is correct. In this case, there is little that can be done on the NVDA side; we should not arbitrarily ignore characters because a synth cannot handle them. However, you can create a speech dictionary to work around this.

I'm using IBM ViaVoice SAPI4 version 6.4.1.0 and your work around has solved this issue. Thank you very much.

Out of interest, does this problem occur for you with the in-built eSpeak synthesiser?

eSpeak and Neospeech Kate/Paul works fine.
