That's because the Text To Speech engine is designed to automatically
interpret these things.
I converted a story a friend wrote into an MP3 file using my AT&T voices,
and in his story, he wrote OK a few times, meaning okay, and the TTS
interpreted it as Oklahoma.

Subject: Directories and voice
I just came back from a cross-country trip with my JB20 V2 which performed
flawlessly. I especially want to thank those developers responsible for
adding voice for directory names. By creating directories for artists and
albums I was able to keep my eyes on the road and still locate the music I
wanted to listen to.
Something quite odd came up regarding a directory name and I am very
interested in an explanation. I created a directory for The Doors called
"L A Woman," converted the cd's contents to mp3's and placed the music in
the directory. I ran the VBS script. When I scrolled down to the folder I
expected to hear "L A Woman" spoken but instead I heard "Los Angeles
Woman." How the heck did the script do that? How did it manage to
interpret L A as Los Angeles?
thankful and baffled,
