Re: Jaws 16 advantages

The ability to have JAWS pronounce capital letters at a higher pitch than lower case letters, has always been a feature of JAWS for Windows. As a previous list member pointed out, it was not enabled or set up correctly in your previously installed version of JAWS on your computer.

Thanks. My grandson set it up for me. In Jaws 15 I couldn't get the voice I wanted and hearing the pitch difference between caps and LC letters didn't exist. It's a lot easier writing now.

JAWS has had those features for several versions now. I would guess they were not set up in the past or were changed. I am glad they are working for your grandson now.

letters is higher than lower case letters! Don't ask me why these
wonderful advantages suddenly appeared, but they did. Judith
