Text to Speech is a great feature which I actually need to use. However, it has annoying aspect such that when someone with a name containing non-standard alpha characters posts a message, the TTS system speaks aloud the *name* of the text element. There needs to be an extra parameter in profile or somewhere such that "name as it is to be spoken by TTS in chat" and allowing ONLY standard ASCII alphas, no special characters, no connecting arcs, box frames, etc etc. Someone with a special-characters-laden name who is chatty... well it can take TTS sometimes several seconds just to utter the name, never mind the message. The only way to preempt it is turn audio output off and back on, sort of defeating the hands-free (and possibly across the room) listening experience.
