Re: Read and Read

I wondered about this for a long time but just got use to it, funny
how if you type R E A D and press space it says it correctly and also
if you, well read by word with jaws and arrows it's also spoken

I don't know a solution to this. The same problem exists with St. for saint
or street and Dr. for doctor or drive. You can have JAWS pronounce any of
these the same way every time, but that does not solve the problem of which
should be spoken in a particular context. It is just one of those screen
reader quirks we have to tolerate as far as I have been able to determine.

Hello Everybody.

What does everybody do for the word read? When I type the word r e a d my
JAWS13 always pronounces this word in the past tense as r e d. I have gone
so far as adding the word read to the dictionary and told JAWS to pronounce
it as r e e d. But that's very limiting as far as sounding partly right. Is
there a way to use read in both it's present and past meanings.
