It's in addons\dectalk\synthdrivers, not in synth drivers. The code is 
commented in the .py file itself, so it should be easy to find. Also, 
about the symbol pronunciation dialog, it has 3 combo boxes for symbols. 
The symbol, its replacement, and preserve. If you want something to go 
to the synthesizer, the combo box itself is labeled "send actual symbol 
to synthesizer", you set it to always for the proper symbols. Or, if you 
would like a dictionary pre built, there's one at 
http://jeff.tdrealms.com/NVDA.htm. Just find the addon labeled "singing 
dectalk", it contains instructions on how to get it to work. And the 
shortcut to access the NVDA menu can be changed in input gestures, in 
the filter by combo box, search for NVDA.
