Reading smileys in Outlook 2016 with JAWS 17

Steve Griffiths

Outlook 2016 automatically replaces some punctuation marks with smileys, for instance :) is replaced with a smiling face, J, and :( with a frowning face, L. When I'm composing a message, JAWS reads these fine. But when I receive one, it reads a smiling face as J and a frowning face as L.


Is this what others get? Does anyone know a way to get them to be recognised properly in a message I receive?
