Thanks to work done by the folks at Hypra, there are plans to add better 
punctuation processing to Speech Dispatcher. Admittedly this is because Hypra 
want to support a synthesizer that doesn't do any such processing, but I 
think this is worth  pursuing, because it does mean we can add support for 
user exceptions, and also extend the code to provide consistant pronunciation 
of individual characters. This extra support uses the punctuation symbol 
files from NVDA, which so far as I know, does something similar.
