Re: Exclamation mark

I have tried setting it to all, most, some, none and character and none of them stop exclamation from being spoken.

Evidently, you want some punctuation announced but not the exclamation point.  Set the exclamation point in the punctuation/symbol pronunciation dialog to all.  That way, it will only be announced when you have punctuation set to all.  If you already have punctuation set to all, I haven't played with this to any extent.  I'll play with it if that is the case.  But if you set it to all and your punctuation reading level is set to most, some, or none, you won't hear it.  If you don't know how to do that, ask.

Serious question:  Are you trying to get it to be entirely silent, or are you looking for something like "bang" to be announced for exclamation mark when moving letter by letter?

Gene is right in that the punctuation/symbols dialog is what's used to control this, but the exact tweaking would depend on precisely what it is you're trying to accomplish.
