I am aragonese translator, when I write 14ºC, for instance, the SAPI 5 of Windows in aragonese says "catorce graus centigraus", (in degrees expression) but on NVDA 2013.1beta2's built-in eSpeak he says "catorceno ce" (ordinal number and letter C). I don't know why, I tried with the punctuation level in all cases but happen in all the same.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:

The character º (U+00BA) is the wrong character. It is the masculine ordinal indicator. The correct character for the degree sign is ° (U+00B0). In some fonts these two characters look very similar or even identical.
The Aragonese voice in eSpeak 1.47.05 now recognizes a misused masculine ordinal indicator and treats it as a degree sign if it is immediately followed by 'C'. My initial fix for this failed on Windows because Windows gives the U+00BA character a "lower-case" attribute. This is incorrect according to the Unicode standard.

Updated to eSpeak 1.47.05 in 52a4549. However, this still sounds different to what you're suggesting it says with SAPI5. Please test with an updated NVDA, as well as eSpeak 1.47.05 SAPI5.
