Re: How To Stop Jaws From Saying "Vertical Tab"

Doc Tom, I just followed directions from someone on one of the lists who said to go:

1. Go to Dictionary (Insert-D).
2. If desired in all programs, Control-Shift-D; Enter.
3. Type Control Enter.
4. Tab once.
5. Put a Space.
6. Tab to OK.
7. Alt F4.

I don't know yet if that will work.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Barbara:



The vertical bar announcements occur in documents that have been prepared in Microsoft Word 2016 and in Outlook 2016 e-mails. I’m using Office 365 here.



It’s a problem for me because I work a lot with MS Word documents, and sometimes with more than one document at a time.

I am assuming the vertical tab is on a web page or an e-mail. When you are working with G-mail and reading line by line, you hear reply vertical bar, forward, vertical bar, print, vertical bar. It is actually a small bar that is no more than ¼ inches long running top to bottom. I have never tried to stop JAWS from speaking the vertical bar because I don’t know if you can.

I can do this, but need to know where to send the files, since I don’t think the list will accommoddate the attachments.

Tom,

If you've got an "old word" file where it's announced, and a "new word" file where it's announced, I'll happily have a look to see what's up. If it's very easy for you to tell me the phrase that precedes "vertical tab" that would make things a bit faster for me, but it's not necessary.
