Messenger fun!

I've always thought having a pronunciation dictionary entry for every internet abbreviation in a screen reader is rather frivilous. I mean, if I had to go through the embarrasment of wondering who this guy Lol (JAWS pronounces it with a long O), was and why everyone on every email list had to include him on each message, why shouldn't anyone else? It's a good way to keep you from getting too cocky. So, I never thought I'd need, or want, the abbreviation for "Shoots Hot Coffee out of Nose"... Undil today.

When one of the listeners to
show either miss-heard or jokingly suggested that my name was "Puppy the Braille Slayer". Kind of ironic, especially since I'm all for Braille literacy. But it's probably not that far off from the high pain level version of me. Thank goodness I don't need to read with my feet!
