Hi all,


Please list any punctuation or anything that is handled like a word look up here when it shouldn't be.


things like $10,00, $10.00, ?,‘, etc. Please paste them into this list rather than trying to replicate them as sometimes they may look the same but are actually slightly different.


Please also mention the language :-)

No I can't, but it's the first entry in my Spanish vocabulary list (known).

Hope I'm not too late to the party...


For the Cantonese Reader:

Digits: 0-9

Chinese Full character punctuation: :, ,《 》?「」【 】

Other Punctuation I've found: <>,+


And honestly, I'd also do the 'English' alphabet: a-z, A-Z


Example:

Looks awesome!  


I checked a few passages and then my ignored Vocabulary and found a few more: ( )·|_~;&"﹖、—

Sorry I should have looked there first as it gives me a nice concise list.


I also saw a diacritic character á, but that's not a big deal as it's likely to be really rare that someone is quoting a Romance language in Cantonese.

Unless you can just ignore everything under unicode point 0x0700 or something like that?

Can you make sure this applies to the Tagalog reader too? I see things like % and ` and others as words. Thanks!

Are you saying when you go to reading tool>vocabulary, select Tagalog from the drop-down and you un-check "ignored", you see those characters? I don't see those characters in mine.
