Now that's new, Jackie! Just switched punctuations to none in Talks, and yeah, Eloquence says smiley face now. That's cool!


Cheers,
Amro

Hi Andy

I wonder then if it is to do with how much punctuation you have turned
on within TALKS?  I have mine set to none, so perhaps this is why I get
the description of the face rather than the punctuation marks being
announced?

| Andy, that's interesting.  What voice are you using on your phone?  I
| ask because someone asked me the very same question recently.  She is
| using Daniel on her phone, and doesn't get the faces announced, only
| punctuation that is correct for the smiley or sad faces.  I use the
| American Eloquence on mine, and it's always worked a treat.
|
| Just a thought.

| Jackie - Seems like I've missed a trick here! Talks Doesn't announce
| "smiley face" etc when :) etc are used, either in a message I create,
or
| one that is sent to me! Have I missed something? -

|| Hi Andy and James
||
|| As far as I can tell, colon, dash and right parenthesis is a smiley
|| face, while colon, dash and left parenthesis is a sad face.  If I
also
|| do just a colon and right parenthesis or colon and left parenthesis,
|| TALKS still announces smiley face and sad face respectively, so I'm
| not
|| sure if there is a distinction on the phone's display between the two
|| types of smiley and sad face.  But whatever they are, and however you
| do
|| them, I adore them!! (smiley face).  How do you make them in an Email
|| message though?

|| Hi Andy,

:-(

me
