Hopefully I'm not off base here. What may be  happening is that JAWS is
looking at the html code on the pages in question and triggering a change in
synthesizer language. I think what you need to do is go into the config
manager and into html options. Tab into the dialog a little ways and you'll
find a checkbox that says something like "detect languages". Uncheck it,
click OK and save the configuration. That should do the trick.
