How do you customize the way punctuations are pronounced in Orca?

IIRC, the technical name for "#" is "octothorpe", but I doubt that 
anyone would want their computer to announce it in that fashion :-).

Bill Acker would probably have wanted his computer to announce it that 
way. He had for years. Ran his email and telephone 
service through it an all that, right up to the day he passed. I always 
thought Speakup should have pronounced it that way as a nod to him, 
since he did a lot of work with it as I recall.
