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.

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!


Thanks!
