Re: how to change bang to exclamation and tick to apostrophe

I suspect it is to save time when reading. 
I'm not sure where bang and tick are used but I think they may be used in some sort of communication where brevity is wanted, such as Morse Code.
 
Also, this sort of thing isn't just used in NVDA.  Window-eyes used bang, as I recall.

Maybe that is standard in Australia where NVDA is developed.
