Alphanumeric check — lots of false positives


#1

Hi,

as seen below, alphanumeric mismatch check introduces an awful lot of false positives, which makes this control virtually useless to me. I understand that this may be difficult to avoid algorihmically, but maybe something like a whitelist would do…?


#2

The issue is caused by a wrong decision to include the dash as part of an alphanumeric word. The idea was to make the Alphanumeric Check find issues such as BW54A-A in source and BW54A-B in target, which was not detected by the previous algorithm.

As I said, the decision to include the dash was wrong because some language include dashes intensively in regular words, so it will be reverted in next Xbench update.


#3

Do you think you could also add skipping checks when the „alpha” part of alphanumeric string strongly indicates that this is a value of something and the unit, like 30Hz? I’ll always be getting lot of false positives here, because Polish requires me to insert a space between the number and the unit.


#4

We try to avoid false positives with a few UoM, but it seems that we forgot to include Hz as a UoM. We’ve now included it and should be fixed in the next Xbench update, thank you for reporting it.


#5

I’m also getting false positives for “x” used as a multiplication sign, e.g. Frame, 10x mini rollers and tray (280 x 150 x 55mm, sometimes together with other UoMs, e.g. 20mm; 2x30mm; 40mm; 50mm Round

This is also a false positive for target, for Polish:

Alphanumeric Mismatch Target (4-CZĘŚCIOWY)
Diall Fine Finish 4 Piece Mini Roller Set
4-częściowy

— it’s a typical way to write that sth consists of a number of pieces/elements.

And another false-positive-triggering unit: V.

Alphanumeric Mismatch Source (5-SPEAKER)
If surround sound content plays on only two speakers of a 5-speaker (or more) surround sound setup, it may indicate a configuration problem with the speakers, or the application being used to play the content on the Mac doesn’t support surround sound output.

Jeśli dźwięk przestrzenny jest odtwarzany tylko na dwóch z pięciu (lub większej liczby) głośników w konfiguracji dźwięku przestrzennego, może to wskazywać na problem z konfiguracją głośników albo na brak obsługi wyjścia dźwięku przestrzennego przez aplikację używaną do odtwarzania zawartości na komputerze Mac.

I still keep getting lots of f.p. within alphanumeric mismatch for English ordinal numbers, like 1st, 2nd etc. Would it be possible to eliminate those from the check too?
