[access-uk] Re: Emoticons other than in Messenger

Mark,

    I tend to use them, particularly if I'm communicating with a sighted
person. This is an old habit from before I was blind and hard to break. I
have Jaws set up to recognise certain strings of punctuation as emoticons
and it works well, but I tend to avoid using them as much when communicating
on the VI centric lists and use full words instead. *Smile.

HTH,
Tink.
