Also, if you are using MS word or word pad as the editor, you can

produce accented characters by hitting ctrl+<accent key> followed by a
letter key, for instance to get "a with accent" using word you would
type ctrl+', a. At least this works when using a standard us keyboard
layout. It unfortunately does not work in the regular windows edit
control, or the custom edit used by Firefox.

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.

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!
