[bksvol-discuss] Re: Question Regarding British Quotes

LOL! Ok, I take your point. How about we fix Jaws so it won't read the apostrophes or mispronounce words because there's an apostrophe next to it? That's really the root of the problem for me and is why I change quotes. I even tried changing to the British voices to see if they would handle single quotes better. No joy there. I figure my only options at this point are to chain myself to the FS office doors in protest, or I can fix quotes. I elected to change quotes because I'm saving my chaining act for something really important, like getting an update for Openbook. (grin)

Hi, Monica. What an awesome idea. First, we reform their position on quotes and the floodgates will open. We'll fix their spelling, make them drive on the right (pun intended), side of the road and more things I can't think of off the top of my head. Oh yeah, make them dial 911 instead of9 99. That'll fix 'em! British reform, it's not your Great Great Great Great grandfather's Boston Tea party anymore. <grins>

Bleh! I don't suppose there's any way to reform the Brits and teach them to use quotes, is there? In the books I scan, they are changed by a batch processer I use because hearing Jaws say apostrophe all the time annoys me. That really doesn't answer your question though. I don't know what the official position is on quotation marks. I would think that your text should look fine for the Braille folks since all they'll see is an apostrophe like Jaws does.
