Hi Bruce & Jon:

Thanks for your suggestions. Jaws Dictionary Manager worked just fine when a space is added to Roman numerals. It didn't take a lot of time to add them with their number equivalents.

You should make sure whether the numerals have spaces after them ore even before. Include these if they are there in the dictionary entries. That way you could avoid some of the misspeaking of single letters as numbers.

You could program them into your dictionary, but you'd then run into the problem of I'a, V's, X's, L's, C's, D's and M's being pronounced as numbers incorrectly.

Hi all,

Is there a way to configure Jaws 6.2 to read Roman numerals as numbers? I have a table listing items with roman numbers such as I, II, III, IV, V, etc. Jaws says ve for VI when VI means 6.

Any help will be much appreciated.
