Works fine without the periods in JAWS 7.

Hi Friends:
My day has been a little frustrating, probably not really on the beam.
As I started the day with a good boy post, I thought I'd end it with a
bad boy post.  For those of us who use Eloquence as our synthesizer,
here is a little trick to try.  First, make sure that you know how to
restart your computer if speech goes dead.  What I am about to share
will indeed cause Eloquence to crash.  I have found a string of
characters unaccounted for in the original phonemes table and it reeks
havoc in most computers.  There is a fix for this that I will post
later.  I will put periods between the letters so as not to cause your
computers to crash.
Simply remove the periods from this string, making it into a whole
word and see what happens if you let your screen reader read it as
part of a line or as a whole word.  You can read it one character at a
time with no problem.
