In process of preparation of Espeak voice in Nepali and in NVDA
translation, I felt a hurdles of defining the character . Since the
character ' . ' is used for 4 purposes in English.
1. As a decimal
2. As a sentence delimitor (Full stop)
3. As an abbriviation indicator
4. Now in between web address too
However in my language, it is only abbriviation and decimal indicator.
I think that NVDA must define characteristics of  symbols rather than
a particular symbols (character). The locale  TTS also governs the
correct pronounciations of such ' symbols.
