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

I have mine set to some translation and controlled by synth.  However, I
tried no translation and it said the number without saying the ' .  What
synth are you using, I am using eloquence.
What is the website you are using, I would like to try it to see what
results I get.

Robert, I have it set to :

Numeric date  processing no translation and
Numbers controlled by synthesizer

I find this happening when I'm on the net reading a weather report.
