moderated JAWS with TeraTerm into a Linux/Unix System

While that works well mostly, there's a big annoyance that crops up (for me) every other once-in-a-while that has to do with shell scripts for configuring packages and programs that display their menus within pretty graphic borders. JAWS says line after line of things like "marlet {some number}, hollow-square this, filled square that," etc. These are all either high-value ASCII or Unicode charaqcters, qand they make reading these menus tedious. Is there any way to stop JAWS from reading these things without having to enter each and every character, of which there are many, into an exception dictionary?
