So how am I supposed to know from hearing star number a dozen or more times 
what's going on.  Quite honestly ASCII art is every bit as much as an 
accessibility problem as the other items I read here all the time.  In this 
example I see nothing telling me what's coming up and am slammed in the 
ears with an incessent repetition of "star number".

And what's all the slash back slash around the signiture?  More audio 
clutter to me.
