wrong character set accessing a dBase IV file (dbf)

I am accessing a dbf file (shape file) through C# with the following connection string:

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Windows\Temp;Extended Properties="dBase IV";

In the dbf file there are french texts like "précis" which come out as "prÚcis". Do you have any idea how I could modify the connection string to have the correct character set?
