Words that must not be spoken

I just confirmed this. This happens with the “curly” quotes and apostrophe characters. The non curly ones work.

Since Text Edit and the system itself can do it correctly I suspect this is a LiveCode issue not a System Preference setting.

For now you could add a routine that replaces the curly quotes, etc. with non curly ones and your proofreading work work again.

It won't even *begin* to speak text containing these characters. But it will speak that same text if I remove just those offending characters.
