Evening all,

Been doing some Sunday evening ruminating, prompted by some recent 
discussions on here.

Having never used one myself, I was wondering how do screen readers output 
phone numbers?

Given 1-800-123-4567

Do they say "One hyphen eight zero zero hyphen one two three..."?

Or "One hyphen eight hundred hyphen one hundred and twenty three hyphen 
four thousand five hundred and sixty seven"?
