Oddly, the " character generates a doubled apostrophe.
I.E., typing ``Hello world" generates ``Hello world''.  The behavior is
not context-sensitive.  Note this behavior occurs with the standard LaTeX
mode; I cannot speak for AucTeX, but it probably does the same.

Solution: type C-q before hitting the shifted apostrophe.  Emacspeak says
quote, and " is inserted into the buffer.
