I have hundreds of cards with a num field that has 3 digits, like “269” that I created on Anki Desktop 2.1.45. I would like each digit read individually like “two six nine” via TTS, instead of “two hundred sixty nine”. I see there are some TTS options like “speed” [Ref: Anki Manual], but there’s no option that can be used to read the individual digits of a num. One hacky way I see of solving this is to do a deck-wide “Find and Replace” with backreferences and insert spaces between each number:
Replace: ^\1 \2 \3$
…but Crate, which Anki uses for regex, doesn’t support backrefs.
I thought maybe a plugin might help, and saw this:
…but that’s only for tags (not any arbitrary field), and anyway the author states that “starting with version 2.1.45, vanilla Anki supports RegEx replacing for tags. Therefore this add-on will not be updated to work on versions newer than 2.1.44.”
Do you have any ideas for solving this problem?
