Espeak says symbol 7 F when you delete a word in Jarte and wordpad #3315

Only when using Espeak as the preferred synth, you will find that control delete in Jarte and Wordpade say the word being deleted, immediately followed by symbol 7 F, which I understand is the delete character code.

It seems to have come in with a recent update in Espeak. Unfortunately an attempt to run an old installer failed as it keeps setting the synth to silence when one runs it with a recent version installed on the .ini file in the installed version. This then has to be altered to get the installed version to run, but that is for another ticket!

Technical: speech.speakTypedCharacters should just ignore 0x7f completely. It only seems to appear when using control+backspace.
Milestone changed from None to next

Does not happen in Word though, and is not there in any other synth I've tried except Espeak.

In [36217bb]:

speech.speakTypedCharacters: ignore character 0x7f produced by control+backspace in some apps. Fixes #3315

State: closed
