Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Hello I wonder if you can describe the role of the buffer pleas I once
tried some good clear English speaking voices on my ocr,they actually came
with a version of jaws but we could use them with our ocr., I would use one
called Daniel it said 22 hertz after it, anyway Daniel, not to be confused
with jaws British English This Daniel was a real belter,and would not be
paused once he got going. A friend said most likely the buffer is not
emptying, he said the buffer was like afunnel so example you are pouring
water into the top of the funnel before it has time to run out at the end
The person who toldme that was totally blind and is the man who made all his
own computers by the way Is that a fair explanation? dorothy-----Original

Your first point, JFW reading some part of a previous screen, I've thought
of as the "flush" problem - it's very annoying. I've noticed it only
sometime in the last few versions.
It seems there's a buffer that isn't being reset as JFW switches between

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find myself
saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads the
previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a newby,
is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the date,
though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what I wrote, not
JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the new
with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my favorite
outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is where the
cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds of
