Re: What causes JAWS to change speech on the fly?

Could the person who used "upchuck" so innocently be, say, a British English 
user, and maybe it doesn't mean "vomit" to an English person?  Maybe it 
does, in which case they're just being gross because they like to do that. 
Whatever.  But I'm curious.  Doesn't the word just mean to vomit, to 
everyone?  So you should go into a menu and vomit up some setting?  I know 
the traditional British term would be to "chuck out" something, meaning 
discard, toss out.  But "upchuck?"

What a funny list this can be.
