If you use jaws 10, this is automatic.

I'd like to map my characters such that when a statement is in quotes, the beginning quotation mark wil be written and read as "open quote" and the end quotation mark will be written and read as "close quote". How do I achieve this? Also, i'd like from time to time for my quotation marks to be written as single or double quotes. Thanks for any help. Cheers!
