It is information provided by JAWS to alert users that text is blocked, such as 
with long quotations. If you don't want to hear "block quote" every time, as I 
don't, here are Denny Huff's instructions on how to tell JAWS not to make this 
verbalization. Note that he wrote two or three years ago, so you may want to 
arrow down to HTML instead of pressing "h" in case the menu has changed. I 
didn't re-test before writing this post.

Go to the configuration manager and load the default.
Do an alt s for settings.
Type an H for HTML.
The first tab is text.  Tab and uncheck, block quotes.
Press enter and do a control s to save.

  Subject: block quotes

  Where can I find information about block quotes?  I see them on web pages and 
sometimes in emails.  Are people simply writing in "block quote" or is this a 
special code that Jaws recognises?
