Espeak switching languages for no reason

Development mailing list
I have been doing a lot of reading of pdf and doc files using  sayall of
late and I've noticed that for no reason I can deduce nvda/espeak reads some
words or sentences in foreign, when its clearly not  supposed to. I have not
had the time to search these long texts to find the offending parts and
attempt some form of diagnosis, but in the light of comments being made in
the normal help nvda group about weird things happening with espeak with
foreign languages, mostly Arabic thus far, I did wonder whether their might
be some odd obscure bug that kind of switches things  in an unhelpful way,
perhaps triggered by a symbol in the text.
 I will monitor it, and for me its a minor annoyance and seems not to have
the same issues with all other synths, but again, I've not exhaustively
tried many to know.


I'd raise an issue but I don't really know what to call it!

I think as you titled this thread, "Espeak switching languages for no reason" would be fine. If you do raise an issue, if possible could you attach one the files that gives you this behaviour so that we can investigate it. Also please mention on the issue the software you are using to read the file.

Thanks!

Yes, I will. At the moment the files I'm getting it on have a lot of
personal detail in them so I'm loathe to do this, but when I get some spare
time I'll see if I can cut and paste the offending parts. One I cannot as
its a pdf in Adobe reader, but the other is a doc file.
