Will kindly pointed out that what you are asking isn't quite|
what I answered. So let me try again.
You write: "I tried to write GHz in the texteditor but orca reads it GHZ and not Giga Herz." I just did the following test. My Orca pronunciation dictionary has the line: "GHz" "giga hertz" In gedit, I had: Line 1. Testing GHz Line 2. Testing GHZ. For line 1, Orca spoke "giga hertz" instead of "GHz" For line 2, Orca spoke G H Z.

I tried to write GHz in the texteditor but orca reads it GHZ and not Giga Herz. Do I need no setup something in orca to get this work?On the "Pronunciation" pane in the Orca Preferences, there is a list with rows that contain two columns. The first column contains the actual string (i.e. the string you would find in a text document and which don't get spoken well), and the second column contains the replacement string (i.e. the new still that will get spoken when the first string is encountered). Hopefully an example will help. If you add "ROTFL" to a new list row in the first column, then "rolling on the floor laughing" in the second column, and save away your preferences, then when Orca detects a line in a text document such as: "The queen was ROTFL when she chopped off his head" it should hopefully replace "ROTFL" appropriately. Like most other Orca preferences, you can set pronunciations specific to an individual application as well. Hope that helps. _______________________________________________ Orca-list mailing list Orca-list gnome org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/orca-list Visit http://live.gnome.org/Orca for more information on Orca
