Sorry, it's one of many such settings not included for user control. That, along with being able to construct dictionary pronunciation of foreign words JAWS just can't handle, or doesn't handle well. I think this latter is more an Eloquence thing than a JAWS thing, but then again, I have not seen this particular capability available in any other text-to-speech system except DECTalk, and even then, you get just so much and then there is no more. For example, I read a lot of things that have Japanese words and/or names  in them. No matter how I try to respell those, no text-to-speech system I have ever used has done what I would consider to be even a passable job at rendering these repronunciations.

Hi, folks.
I decided to get serious about learning JFW. Lots of interesting discoveries, and, a few puzzles.
Here is one. I noticed that with or without punctuation spoken, JAWS kind of rushes past what I consider to be normal length punctuation pause intervals. With Window-Eyes, I was able to put a period character after char.chr dictionary entries, thereby increasing the pause interval. This does not work with the JAWS Eloquence voice, however. To my question.
Is there a setting in JAWS to adjust punctuation pause intervals?
Thank you in advance for your help,
