Re: a couple of easy questions

Good afternoon Barbara,

When I had a similar problem, I added an entry to the default dictionary
1. Press JAWS Modifier Key Plus F2.
2. Press the Letter D.
3. Press Control, Shift, D.
Note: If your computer asks you to save a new dictionary file name, pressing
escape will also take you into the default file.
4. Press your SpaceBar key on the "add" button.
5. Type the grater than symbol, ">" (typically shift, period)in the actual
word field.
6. After tabbing once, then type a space " "into the replacement word field.
7. Tab to the "OK" button and Press SpaceBar.
8. Press Alt, F4 to close the Dictionary Manager, and Alt, Y, (as in yes),
to save the changes.
I hope this helps.

Enjoy your weekend,

Paul Jenkins

Hi Barbara,

Probably the easiest way to get rid of the speaking of the greater-than sign

is to set punctuation to some or none. Go into the JAWS Window and the
Options menu. Go down to the Voices menu and into Voice Adjustment. Tab
around the Voice Adjustment dialog and you'll find the Voice Punctuation
combo box. Set it to whatever you want, then press Enter to close the

My other question is, how to bring up the HJ pad in windows 8.1. I know it
is buried somewhere, but do not remember how to locate it.

I just looked on my girlfriend's Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.1 and
couldn't find HJ Pad either. I'm not sure why that is; maybe it's not
supported on Windows 8.1 or just isn't included with JAWS 16. . In either
case, you could use Wordpad and do everything that HJ pad would do and maybe

more. From the Start screen, type wordpad and you'll find it.

Hope that helps.
