Re: IOS pronunciation issue

Default pronunciation is determined by the screen reader, not what content creators or coders do.
Take it up with your particular manufacturer, such as Freedom Scientific and NVDA.

Depending upon whether you're coding an HTML website, creating a Word or PowerPoint document, or remediating a PDF, you can put expansion text on the USD with Actual Text to voice it as US Dollars.

Subject: [WebAIM] IOS pronunciation issue

Hello, can anyone on this list shed light on why a Web App on an IOS device cannot pronounce USD as "Us Dollar"? Right now the pronunciation gets treated as a word. I'm not sure of anyway to adjust the dictionary of any IOS device to change this internally.
