    Gary, you did a great job presenting the numerous options available. I presently work with Special Ed. students, some of which are non-verbal and I find these techniques invaluable. For anyone who complains about auto-correct these options can save you the embarrassment of having something typed that shouldn’t. Simple example: just today in a group posting that another person put the word “taped” had been auto-corrected to “raped.” Using some of Gary’s suggestions would have caught this.

    Another excellent feature overview. One extremely useful Accessibility Spoken Content option is the ability to specify custom or corrected pronunciations for words or acronyms that even the newer premium and enhanced quality voices may mispronounce. Sadly, it appears this feature is only available on iOS and iPadOS. I don't see Pronunciation on the latest macOS Ventura.

    Mike: Perhaps in the next version of macOS?

    Fingers crossed. 🤞🏼 I just submitted a feedback request to Apple, but sometimes it feels like shouting into the vacuum of interstellar space. 🫤
