-`Accents` enables one to enter non-ascii characters using 
-abbreviations. `Accents` converts the abbreviations to the 
-characters they represent, as you type. For example, if you 
-enter ``"a``, `Accents` converts it to ``ä`` when you type the
-"a" character.
+`Accents` makes inserting characters like ``á`` easy.  As you 
+type, `Accents` watches for character abbreviations and 
+converts them as you type them.  For example, if you enter 
+``'a`` `Accents` converts it to ``á`` when you enter the 
+``a``.
 
 However, with this convenience comes a cost.  If you actually 
 wanted to enter ``'a``, not ``á``, you must enter ``' a``,
