Hi, Sandra.

Two points:

1. Remember Dave Carlson's point that different synthesizers lead to different results in the JAWS dictionary. You might want to specify which synthesizer you're using. Eloquence? I have the Dectalk Plus, which means anything I get might not work with Eloquence.

2. You can obtain a list of symbols, including accented letters, by pressing JAWS key+4 (on the number row above the letters). Arrow down the list. It isn't complete, I'm afraid, but there are some French-accented letters.

Hi, everyone,

Continuing to solve this mystery—someone suggested a variant spelling to use, but it already didn’t work in the post, so that’s out. However, someone else suggested experimenting with the grave-accent. I am betraying my age here, but when I was taking high school French, I had the dubious and tedious task of hand-typing the accents half a space above the letters—yes, on a Smith Corona! I have never yet learned how to produce the various accents using a computer—so, if anyone would like to send me a list, I would be so-o-o grateful! If this verges on off-topic, feel free to email me. I will have more ammo for getting JAWS to reproduce the French pronunciations—thanks in advance for new suggestions!
