RE: JFW 5.0, Windows XP OS and numbers with apostrophes

Odd, my computer says 20's as twenties, and does not announce the ' unless I
read by using the ctrl+arrow key for word-to-word.
I tried this in outlook 2000 and notepad.  My OS is XPHome and I use jaws
5.x
I have not made any changes to my pronunciation dictionary.
What do you have your number translation set to?

How does one get JAWS to say numbers that have an apostrophe s the correct
way?  If I write 20's I want the computer to say twenties.  This is
especially annoying when reading weather reports and they say in the 20's or
50's.
Can this be corrected?
