Re: Identifying colors in word

Hi Kimberly,
You probably want to turn on a proofreading scheme that will let you identify colors while you're in say-all. As I recall, there a couple of those. One lets you hear attributes and color; the other will simply identify color changes as they occur.

1. Press alt+insert+s to bring up the scheme selection dialog.
2. Make a mental note of which scheme is currently active; it's probably "classic". This is important in case you want to come back to it later.
3. Arrow up or down to the scheme that sounds right for you, then press enter.
4. Go to the top of your document and do a say-all. You should hear JAWS identify colors and/or attributes as they change.
5. When you're through, go back into the schemes selections and restore the original scheme so that you don't hear that extra info every time you get into Word.

Hope this helps.

Subject: Identifying colors in word

Hi All,

I have a word document in which text has been highlighted using
various colors to denote different types of edits.

How to I tell Jaws 12 to identify the different colors of text as I
read through the document?

Thanks in advance,
