Text to speech punctuation issue {exclamation-point}

Hi, I have a Galaxy S-10+.

The speech to text is malfunctioning. When I give a punctuation command, it spells out the word, exactly like this "{explanation-point}" or "comma}" or "{question mark}" instead of giving me the character. This happened suddenly.

It happens anytime I give a voice punctuation command while texting, emailing or calendar.

I changed from Google text to speech to Samsung text to speech.

I cleared cache in Google and Google and Samsung text to speech engine.

I restarted by phone several times.

The Apps are up to date

There’s some old threads from 2016/2017 with the same problem. No solutions.

I think it’s strange that the problem has been around that long but I can’t find fixes?

Thank you!
