If you are creating it put a space inbetween the capital letters.

Mike, for what it's worth, I don't think there would be a way other than
adding a dictionary entry because any synth would naturally try to pronounce
the acronym as a word, like I B M as IBM and O C R as OCR.
abbreviations like MN would be spoken as M N because there isn't a vowel,
but W A would be spoken as the sound when a baby whines.

Hi All,

Running Windows 7 & Jaws 16. Is there any way other than the dictionary
manager to have Jaws read acronyms in all caps like, SOS or UPS, as
individual letters instead of words? I've tried changing settings with,
expand abbreviations & acronyms, without any success, & also, Spell
Alphanumeric Data, without any luck there either. All suggestions will be
greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
Take care.
