I figure that one can also fix the apostrophes' issues by using the following simple substitutions in PE:
I’ve tested these with TA2193 and they seem to correctly handle the phrases in the initial post, namely:
How 'bout it?
That is somebody's home.
Go get 'em.
During the '80's I went to high school.
Similar corrections work for other apostrophes’ issues, for example, the substitution
makes Heather, Daniel, and other voices correctly read abbreviations with ‘re.
However, sometimes upon being copied into TextAloud, apostrophes can get different ansi codes, e.g. 27, 60, 91, 92, so that one might have to create corresponding entries in PE to individually fix issues with each of these codes. Maybe it looks kind of awkward solution but I figure it’s conditioned by the apostrophes’ ambiguity that still exists. On the other hand, these workarounds seem to preserve grammatical structure of a sentence and thus seem unlikely to cause side effects.
