Re: Read and Read

Sentence reading can behave differently from line reading. I think
Sentence is the default for Word, and may be the only choice. Another
word to notice is wind-either what one does to a watch, or that which
glows. Sentence mode is slightly better at judging context.

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
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
