Re: a couple of easy questions

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)

I agree, but suggest making this change in your e-mail dictionary file, rather than across the board. In fact, I've used this approach successfully. Greater than and less than have some legitimate uses, so it might be good to have them spoken overall.

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,

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.
