Re: Greater greater greater`

Okay.  You mean if he makes this verbosity adjustment only for OE, not 
globally in the default file.  Got it.  I still wouldn't want to do that, 
but I get what you're saying.  Thanks.

His suggestion would only stop JAWS from pronouncing greater-than
signs in emails, not in all other applications.  I couldn't tell if
you knew that already; sorry if I'm stating the obvious.

Ah.  Okay, so that's what he was saying.  it sounded like a command in Word

interested in stopping Jaws from speaking that character, as I use it
sometimes.  I remember a freeware program a few yeas ago that actually would
strip those signs out of an email if you ran it with the email open, but
that was a long time ago, on another computer.  At any rate, I've gotten
fairly used to bearing with hearing those marks, and I don't want to silence
them in Jaws out of annoyance.  So I guess this isn't an option for me.
Nor, of course, do I want to do without punctuation verbosity enough to
silence that mark as well as much else.  So this won't be solved with any
adjustment to Jaws, for me.  Some day I'll come upon that little program for
stripping out the marks from an annoying email, and I'll share the URL.

If I'm not mistaken, the suggestion is to treat the greater than sign > as a
word in the JAWS dictionary and then to type a single space in the
replacement field.  I expected JAWS to say "space," but it didn't verbalize
anything.

I added the caveat that I have JAWS set to "some" punctuation, which may
have skewed my results.
