Re: apostrophe again

Hello Robert:

In my last reply, I did not answer your question!

As far as I know, there is no way to represent control characters, such as hard 
line feeds, hard page breaks, and hard carriage returns, in the Dictionary 
Manager.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

  Hi Dave.  That is really great!  Thanks.  Do you think it could also be used 
with carriage returns for apostrophes that start at the beginning of a line or 
are at the end of a line?

    In the Dictionary Manager, you will have to enter several entries, such as:

    The following examples are for the apostrophe as it represents an open 
single quotation mark.

    Actual Word:

    space character apostrophe character

    Replacement Word:

    space Character double quote character.  (If that does not work, enter the 
word quote instead)

    Use the above replacement example to change left square bracket apostrophe 
and left parenthesis apostrophe

    The following examples are for the apostrophe as it represents a close 
single quotation mark.

    Actual Word:

    apostrophe character space character

    Replacement Word:

    Double quote character (or the word quote) space character

    Use the above replacement example to change apostrophe comma, apostrophe 
period, apostrophe question mark, apostrophe exclamation mark, apostrophe right 
square bracket and apostrophe right parenthesis.

    HTH

    Dave Durber

      Yes.  I did try that but it made words with apostrophes sound strange 
like don t and can t.

      Thanks for the idea.  

      I just don't understand why this is still a problem.  So many editors 
have "smart quotes" that seem to make apostrophes instead of quote marks.  

      I tried all the punctuation levels in jaws but can't shut them up.

        You could use the jaws dictionary to change apostrophe to quote, but 
then you would never hear apostrophe.

          My favourite voice is Eloquence.  When I read some scanned books, 
they have apostrophes instead of quotes.  How do I get Jaws to stop saying 
apostrophe when there is a quotation?  It drives me nuts!

          I tried setting punctuation levels but it doesn't stop apostrophes 
being spoken when they are used instead of quotes.
