Re: JAWS won't verbalize letters with accents and other symbols

Update. It turns out that Eloquence speaks the symbols, but Dectalk Express
does not in 64-bit Win7, although it used to in 32-bit XP. FS has written up
a ticket, but I can't say I'm optimistic.

Adrian,

I know this doesn't help, but in character-by-character movement, I do hear
the letter properly pronounced. I wonder if you need to change your
punctuation level, or perhaps enable something else in the text dialog in
the settings center?

Hi. Using JAWS 14 and Windows 7, I find that JAWS won't read letters with
accents and other symbols. For example, it won't tell me that the last
character of this word is e acute:



Engagé



On my system, JAWS leaves that last character silent.



When I had JAWS 13 and XP, JAWS would tell me that this symbol is e acute.



I know JAWS doesn't pronounce most words with symbols properly when reading
by word, line, etc. That's another issue.



Any ideas how I can get JAWS to speak these characters?
