punctuation modes

1) emacspeak has settings for various modes that 
automatically sets things like split-caps and punctuations.
if you want to change that behavior you are by definition an
advanced user--
at that point you need to customize the relevant modes
e.g. perl-mode to your taste.
2) punctuation mode etc get set and synched with the TTS
engine when the mode line is spoken.

If when in a dired buffer you open a file and immediately
silence speech it is quite likely that the TTS engine
doesn't get a chance to set up its punctuation mode.

3) In general for (2) just have emacs speak the mode line
with C-e m.
