moderated Re: Possible Punctuation Bug
Jaws Quick Settings and Custommize Settings handles punctuation symbols differently. Below is an explanation.
This is a note on the difference between changing punctuation settings in Jaws quick settings, Insert + V, & customize punctuation in the Settings Center default all applications. They work backwards from one another.
When setting punctuation in Jaws quick settings, this controls the amount of punctuation JAWS will speak / recognize. The default setting is most. To hear less
punctuation spoken you would select some or none.
When making changes in the customize punctuation list, this basically tells Jaws how much of a selected punctuation mark to ignore. If you do not want
Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you want to choose the
" all " selection. You will have 4 radio buttons to arrow up or down
through. They are none, some, most, & all. In these selections they work
backwards than what you would think. For example; If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.
Summary: In short the Jaws quick settings tells Jaws what punctuation to recognize / speak, & in the Settings Center default all applications / Customize
Punctuation settings, tells Jaws what punctuation to ignore / not speak. Hence, they work backwards from each other.
Hope this helps some of you understand the differences between the 2
punctuation setting options.
FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION! It comes bundled with the software.

Can someone try the following and see if you get the same reaction?
4. Repeat step#1 and arrow dow the list. Do those characters speak twice
So instead of
Number, the character itself,
Then number, the text name,
Then none, the mode,
I get the character announced twice, then the text name, then the mode, such as,
Number number number none
At at at none
Dollar dollar dollar none
Percent percent percent none
And and and none
Anyone else get this?
