Espeak NG ignores punctuation configuration?

Hello list,

Ubuntu Mate 22.04 64-bit, Speech dispatcher 0.11.1-1ubuntu2, Orca 43.1.

I use punctuation level Some in Orca, and I'd like to configure some
characters to be spoken in line by line navigation.

I modify ~/.config/speech-dispatcher/modules/espeak-ng.conf.

I suppose this is the configuration file being used, since when I modify
the rate settings there and restart Orca with a delay longer than 5
seconds, the changes get applied.

I found:

# Characters to be spoken when punctuation setting is "some"
# Encoding is UTF-8.
EspeakPunctuationList "@+_"

Which sounds like what I'm searching for, but even with the default
setting, it doesn't seem to be applied.

@ and + are spoken, that's fine. But the _ is not, even though it's listed.

Also, there are special characters that are not a part of the list, but
are still spoken, such as \.

I have a feeling this used to work in the past, but some things have
changed with the system upgrade.

For example, for some reason, numbers containing a , like 1,234 are now
spoken like 1 2 3 4.

I think this also used to work.

Do you have similar experience?


Best regards
