Vlad,

1. Do you have a source file/table you can provide that you are
using?
2. I take it you want this to read with assistive technology,
not that you simply wish to generate an audio file.

Regards,


Norman B. Robinson

Subject: [WebAIM] Screen reader question

Hi,

Would anyone know how to solve the following problem. We need screen
readers to speak the following phrase, pausing at the commas (or other
punctuation):

"Table 1, row 2, column 3"

Currently, the phrase is being spoken as follows:

"Table, 1 row, 2 columns, 3"

..because the pauses are occurring in the wrong place, and altering the
meaning of the phrase.

Would anyone know how to force a pause in a middle of text? The solution
we are looking for should not be specific to a given screen
reader/version.

Thanks.

Regards,
-Vlad
