Audio Web Browsers

I am working on the web site for the University of Utah Testing Center. I
am attempting to make our site accessible to individuals with disabilities.
As part of this effort, I have some questions:
Do audio browsers read "ACT" as "A.C.T." or as "act?"
How about acronyms that do not form proper English words such as "GMAT?"
Do I need to put periods after each letter of an acronym for it to be read
Is capitalizing each letter enough for the browser to know it is an acronym?
If you could help me with these questions, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you very much,
David Lund
