This Say It Smart type handles the reading of a date or portions of a date. It handles many input formats for the date, some of which provide only a partial date. The plug-in also supports the components of the date separated by forward slashes (/) and will require the use of this delimiter if any component of the date is expressed with one digit instead of two (for example, May 2 can be expressed as 0502 or 5/2 where the slash is required if any component is not padded with 0s). The date is read back in standard English fashion; the month name (rather than the number), the day, and the year. If only partial information is available, only that data will be read. The plug-in will only read legitimate dates according to the standard Gregorian calendar and will throw an error if an incorrect date is given.
This plug-in uses the Unified CVP Number Say it Smart plug-in to render the year. It uses the same audio files so recordings done to support Number can be leveraged to support Date.
