I wish JAWS would have an option to not expand abbreviations.
If you buy CodeFactory’s version of Vocalizer, it has a setting in its own settings to disable abbreviation expansion. Apparently, it is a screen reader flag, so JAWS should be able to do it.
All the best

The fact is that these modern, human-sounding synthesizers are absolutely notorious for doing this. To me it's maddening as I don't want my reader, human or synthetic, to substitute what's on the screen for what it thinks are the correct replacements based on commonly used abbreviations. This is one reason why there will always be a place for voices like Eloquence and ESpeak.
