    Plus sign vs. ampersand


      I see several transcriptions in which an ampersand is transcribed as a plus sign.  Visually, that is okay, I suppose.  But how do screen readers interpret the plus sign?  If it says "plus" instead of "and," that would be a problem.  However, because I am not a user of a screen reader, I don't know what it does.  In the meantime, I am converting + to & as appropriate.  Thoughts?
