One extra question on this: I have found an italian page saying that
"if you disable the speaking of the ">" sign, blind users
won't know what is a reply and what is new text. If you don't
disable such reading, blind users will hear one or more ">"
signs at every new line, which is terribly annoying and
Is there no other way? That is, is there some assistive sw which can:
not speak the ">" sign but, at the same time,
indicate to the user in some way what is a reply and what is new?
