One thing about the apostrophe, if you nullify it altogether, you may
get some strange results on contractions. I tried that once, and had to
back off.

Hi LeDon,

Note: The apostrophy & dollar sign are only examples.

You can change how Jaws speaks the apostrophy in the Settings Centter
default all applications by doing the following. If you only want to
change the punctuation settings in a particular application just open the
Settings Center while in the particular application by pressing Insert +
6, on the number row above the main keyboard to open the Settings Center:
1. Press Insert + 6, on the number row above the main keyboard to open
the Settings Center, & press, Control, shift, + D, to open default all
applications.
2. Arrow down to, Punctuation closed & press right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to customize punctuation & press the spacebar to open.
Don't press enter here, if you press enter instad of the spacebar, the
Settings Center will close.
4.A. When making changes in the customize punctuation list, if you do not
want Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you want to
choose the " all " selection. You will have 4 radio buttons to arrow up
or down through. They are none, some, most, & all. In these selections
they work backwards than what you would think. For example; If you
choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.

4.B. After you pressed the spacebar on customize punctuation, you are now
in a list of punctuation marks. Arrow down the list and when you have
the punctuation mark you want to change highlighted, tab 1 time to the
radio buttons that I mentioned earlier.
5. Keeping in mind what I mentioned earlier about these choices working
backwards, select the box in this list, in your case not wanting any
apostrophy's spoken, choose the all button.
6. Now, if you want to make a change to another punctuation mark, shift
tab back to the list and highlight a different punctuation mark, tab back
to the radio buttons and select the box you prefer.
7. After you are done making your changes tab to okay and press the
spacebar.
8. Tab to apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar to
save your changes & close the Settings Center.

Now, I hope that you are not as confused as I am after typing all of
this.
LOL Hope this has helped.

Take care.
Mike

Adding a subject line that is a bit more descriptive; "two questions"
does not tell us much!

I am using jaws seventeen windows ten and WLM.

I have Jaws punctuation set up to read, none, And that works except
that when jaws comes to an esclamation point it reads it. That is the
only punctuation that jaws reads. How can I get jaws to not read the,
punctuation when it comes to an esclamation point?
