Re: Reading highlighted text


Good afternoon:

Thank you for your instructions, but after following the steps, Jaws is still not letting me know which text is highlighted.

Settings Center
Ctrl+Shift+D to apply to default

Select your current scheme (usually marked as default)
Press Modify Button
Ctrl+Tab to the Attributes page
On the attributes page, select add
find Highlight" and press Enter
Decide on how you want the highlight announced and press Enter
Make any other needed changes, and press Enter to close out multi-page
Then save as
Give it a unique name and press Enter
Then you will be asked if you want this to be your default and select yes.
Then save the settings

That should do it.

Good afternoon list:

With Windows XP and Jaws 12, how do I set Jaws to automatically announce
when it is reading highlighted text?

Thanks in advance.
