Re: How to mute JAWS in a specific application

Howard, you aren't the first JAWS user to have this problem. You seem to
describe how to perform the operation just right. But to make sure, press
and release the insert key and spacebar as close together as you can, pause
a moment, then press s. On my system, JAWS says "Speech off," then goes
silent. I repeat the keystrokes, JAWS says, "Speech on," and all's well.

Pressing insert plus space bar gives me a double click. any keystroke after
that does nothink. How can I do that wrong? What should I be doing?

Hi, yes its no longer in quick settings, you can either each time you
launch the app, press insert plus space, then s, and do the same thing
when you exit, but the better way is to go to settings centre, then go
to misilanious options, and then to sleep moad, press space til it
says, enable and unload the synthesizer. Then press enter, of corse
make sure that the application file for that eclips is selected in
settings centre.

Hi. I've just installed IRTI's Eclipse Pro Writer and Hovercam primarily
scanning and performing OCR on documents. Eclipse comes with its own
synthesizers, so I need to have JAWS be silent whenever I switch to that

The old methods for silencing JAWS in a specific application appear no
longer to work. One of the more recent was to use what is now the Quick
Settings Dialog, but the mute/silence option doesn't appear, at least
have Eclipse open. The one method I haven't yet tried involves opening
default scripts and creating an on/off speech toggle keystroke. Even if
one still works, I'm hoping there's something a little more obvious.

I am using JAWS 13 with XP. Any suggestions?
