Hi Peter.

This problem she is having with regard to the speaking of the escape codes as 
settings we send to the embosser happens with the braille express enabling 
embossers only as far as I know and has been this way for a long long time.

In talking with enabling about this though it was my understanding that they 
felt it was really their problem and probably maybe a bug in that line of 
firmware 
since none of the other embossers with speech seen to have this problem.

I thought your solution was a good one for a work around but well if that too 
doesn't work, then I feel it confirms more and more that it is deffinately a 
bug in 
the firmware.

I guess I post this to say 
1. don't loose sleep over this.

2. to make sure it is known that this is not a problem due to Duxbury being a 
beta version.
