This is true. You are quite correct. Thank God for that combo box!

Instead of adding this entry to the default dictionary, I recommend adding
it to the application specific dictionary(s) for the program(s) you use to
access your e-mail. That way, JAWS will still report the greater than sign
in other contexts, such as math content in Word and web browsers.

Good afternoon Barbara,

When I had a similar problem, I added an entry to the default dictionary
manager.
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,
You wrote:

I know these questions have been addressed several times, but I can't
seem to locate my notes on how to get rid of messages saying "greater
greater".
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
dialog.


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.

Tom
