    Bart> 
    Bart> Here are the two approaches.
    Bart> 
    Bart> Firstly just the removed spaces:
    Bart> 
    Bart> (defmacro tts-with-punctuations (setting &rest body)
    Bart> "Safely set punctuation mode for duration of body
    Bart> form." `(progn (declare (special dtk-punctuation-mode))

    Bart> (unwind-protect (progn (unless (eq ,setting
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (process-send-string
    Bart> dtk-speaker-process (format "tts_set_punctuations %s\n"
    Bart> ,setting)) (setq dtk-punctuation-mode ,setting)) ,@body
    Bart> (dtk-force)) (unless (eq ,setting
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (setq dtk-punctuation-mode
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (process-send-string
    Bart> dtk-speaker-process (format "tts_set_punctuations %s\n"
    Bart> dtk-punctuation-mode )) (dtk-force))))))
    Bart> 
    Bart> 
    Bart> And the one using dtk-interp-set-punctuations:
    Bart> 
    Bart> (defmacro tts-with-punctuations (setting &rest body)
    Bart> "Safely set punctuation mode for duration of body
    Bart> form." `(progn (declare (special dtk-punctuation-mode))
    Bart> (let ((save-punctuation-mode dtk-punctuation-mode))
    Bart> (unwind-protect (progn (unless (eq ,setting
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (dtk-interp-set-punctuations
    Bart> ,setting) (setq dtk-punctuation-mode ,setting)) ,@body
    Bart> (dtk-force)) (unless (eq ,setting
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (setq dtk-punctuation-mode
    Bart> save-punctuation-mode) (dtk-interp-set-punctuations
    Bart> ,setting)) (dtk-force)))))
