Re: How can I use JAWS to identify a mysterious character?

have you tried pressing the numpad 5 three times quickly to hear the hex value of the character?

Hi All,

I have a document that has, scattered throughout, a lot of mysterious consecutive characters that I want to delete globally using Word. However, JAWS describes them only as “blank†(without the “). I vaguely recall back in my DOS days about being able to enter the ASCII number for a character to produce it. Is there a keystroke in JAWS whereby I can put my cursor on the mysterious character, and find out what it is in terms of an ASCII number, then enter that into the global search and replace?
