Does work.

Does not work.

I'm using Cepstral with Adobe Reader and a PDF Ebook and it reads the second example sentence's apostrophe "S" wrong, it seems to be a different apostrophe than the one used in the top sentence.

Can this be fixed in as a lexicon entry somehow?

You can readily hear this problem by pasting the examples into the Speech Control Applet in Windows XP.

We've identified the issue of alternate markings punctuation marks as candidates for better coverage from the parsers in a future release. This includes what Microsoft word might call smart quotes, smart double quotes and the like.

Same Issue here

" and ' are both read as ? ? ? ? ;

I tested with it's in the lexicon and it works, but I'm feeling lazy and really don't feel like adding every word that might become plual or possesive. Any way to fix tweek this?

The issue here is that the engine does not recognize the "smart quotes", which are non-ASCII counterparts in the UNICODE character sets.
