maybe you should let the vendors low about this….

A while ago the NVDA team told they'd voice most of the important Unicode codepoints but that they don't see any value in doing this for each and every code point. It seems prime and double prime might be among the less important ones. As the NVDA guys are very open minded - if they begin to hear they should include support fore more of these code points, especially including prime and double prime for GIS coordinates etc., they might simply add it.
