Quick Poll for JAWs users: Verbosity and Punctuation settings.

Hi All,

Just doing a quick poll to try and figure out a minor question. What I am
attempting to determine is what are your settings? Verbosity: Low, Medium or
Beginner? Then Punctuation: All, Most, Some or None?

The question being considered is whether or not to include (parenthesis) in
off-screen text: is there a value to doing so, or should I not bother?

Data and comments most appreciated.
