Do you mean: on your system the synthesis keeps saying the whole
character, and all characters, while you would rather that the synthesis
stops as soon as moving to another character, to the point that
characters are never spoken entirely, but just a glimpse?

If so, it happens that on my system I am getting that latter behavior,
with speech dispatcher 0.8, espeak-ng, and orca 3.31.4, so it seems
something is different with your system...

Which desktop are you using?  Which application are you trying with?
