It's been suggested that a way to spell character names would be helpful - granted their often idiosyncratic spellings.

Consensus so far is that this's a great idea.

We'll get an appropriate command implemented in the next few days.

Here's a thought. We could have the talking UI modify the way it reads the output of the "who" command, to including the spelling after each name.

So, after reading "Poobah", it would add, "P", "o", "o", "b", "a", "h".

That seems pretty clean to me.

What do you think?

Instead of modifying Who, a new Spellnames command has been added.

This addresses a use case which has been commented via feedback three or four times.

Note that some alpha testers have additional requested the more general ability to back up through spoken text. We're brainstorming that.
