Re: "bullet"

When you place the cursor on the place where JAWS says "bullet" and
you press <NUM PAD 5>, does JAWS say "b" or "bullet".

If JAWS says "bullet", instead of "b", then you have the bullet
symbol.  You should be able to delete this symbol by pressing the
<DEL> key.  You should press the <BACKSPACE> key if the cursor is in
the character position following the bullet symbol.

JAWS would not say bullet for the word or the symbol if neither the
word or the symbol did not exist.

On my braille display, the bullet symbol is represented by dots
1-2-3-4-7-8.
