Re: help with verbalizing items


when pressing JAWSKey (insert)+numrow 2 to cycle thru the choices, there
should be a "both characters and words".

Unfortunately, you cannot hear every character sometimes, and just hear
words other times. You can only choose between hear characters, words,
charactors and words all of the time, or nothing LOL! That would be nice
if you could hear just words, but numbers one at a time.

When I have my setting to characters, of course, it will do this, but I
type fast enough that I prefer to use words. If I type something like
dv-12345, I don't hear the numbers until I press enter, space or

For some things, it is not a problem, but when editing numbers, I prefer
to make certain I am entering them correctly, so I prefer to press 1 and
hear 1 and then 2 , hear 2, etc. I just went back and made another
couple of test changes. There does not seem to be a way to do what I am
looking for. Thank you, though, for being so helpful. Doing these
things are a good way to learn what type of things are found in
different settings and how to use them.

Thank you very much. My main concern is when typing the numbers from
the keyboard. The reading is not a problem as much as I need to hear
what I am typing. I don't want all numbers spoken this way, grin. This
would have been a keyboard setting in Window-Eyes. I did find the
setting for echoing words and I have that set, but will this result in
echoing numbers as digits when being typed?

Hi, Carol. If you press the INSERT or JAWS key as it is sometimes called
by JAWS users, with the number two on the numbers row, you can change
whether JAWS echos back characters, words, or nothint at all. If it is
set to echo words, the word will be spoken right after pressing the
space bar, or a punctuation key.

As to setting numbers to be spoken as single digits, this setting is
under JAWS Settings, INSERT plus six on the number row. Then navigate
down to Text Processing, and change the setting to single digits,
controlled by synthesizer. That should allow speaking of single digits.

I hope this helps you.

In Window-Eyes, it was possible to have words spoken after pressing
space or punctuation or the spacebar. It was also possible to have each
digit of a number spoken immediately when typed, such as 123 being
echoed as 1 2 3. Is this possible with Jaws? Also, I read earlier that
someone had asked if there was a way to get Jaws to stop saying alt
tab. If that question was answered, I did not see a reply. Of course,
I have gone through over 300 email messages today, and it is very
possible I might have overlooked the reply. So, I am asking again,
grin. Thanks.
