Hello Lucas, emacs-version gives: GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9) of 2008-05-03 on terranova, modified by Ubuntu I have the ubuntu package unicode-data installed, the description of which gives: Description: Property data for the Unicode character set This package contains the property data, for the Unicode data set. c-h v doesn't recognise the variable you mentioned, describe-char-unicodedata-file. I'm afraid the patch you sent didn't help either, even though tts-strip-octals is enabled. Yes, when I say emacspeak-27.0 read your test file perfectly, I meant read it without unwanted question-marks, not that it read 'square-root'. I clearly have only a limited understanding of what's going on, and am very happy to dig around in the docs until a bit of light dawns, especially since I can use emacspeak-27 without problems. Converseley, if it is a problem which you want to iron out because it concerns an area of development you've been involved with, I am happy to keep reporting back and working on it. I do appreciate the help you have given.
