Re: Persian/Arabic Characters

Hi, Hamid and Soronel,
Soroonel, that was a great idea, so I performed the same
experiment. I'm using JAWS 9, and I do not speak, understand or
read Arabic, but I believe I hear consistent sounds if I read by
character using the left or right arrow key.
Here's a phonetic representation of what I hear, reading from
right to left, which, Hamid, I think is the correct way to read
Arabic? Please forgive me if I'm wrong about that. I'm spelling
the sounds so JAWS speaks what I'm hearing. Obviously, the words
space and silence are not sounds, but what's really there, a
space or a silence! If you navigate using control right arrow,
you will hear each element as I heard it. Here goes:
seen silence seen (it actually may be seem, I can't quite
tell...) ayn heh ayn ka space dad ka sad aleph lan (again, it may
be lam...or even lanm) dal heh theh meem silence beh
Every time I read by character, I get the same sounds, so I'm not
getting the inconsisistencies you both heard.
HTH! And let us know what happens! Good luck!

I can confirm that if I move over your test sequence by word or
character, (either left to right or right to left) that my
English eloquence synthesizer does not produce consistent sounds.
don't know either language/script and so can't tell you under
circumstances it's screwing up, only that I do get different
where I would expect them to be the same.

Do you have a native Arabic/Persian synthesizer available? I
not expect you to have particularly good results unless you do
such a synthesizer.

Dear Folks,

I am using JAWS 12.0 32-bit on windows 7. I've noticed that on
character/words JAWS works completely randomly! For instance,
for a letter
or word when I use the arrow keys to hear it again, I hear a
different thing each time. I've also renewed my windows 7
recently, but the
problem persists.

Does anybody have a clue where the problem is? JAWS, Windows?

Here are a few Persian characters:

For me, the problem persists both in typing and reading. Could
you test
