Re: windows powershell

Hi again, John,

What I am talking about would be the same as toggling speech for the keyboard. It would not change anything else that happens. For example, I type with words spoken after I press space instead of hearing each character one at a time. It is also possible to turn keyboard speech off, but I like to hear what I am typing. The solution I suggested would allow you to input something without it speaking which key is pressed, but could allow the screen to speak what just showed up. This was something I used to experience, pressing a key and having it spoken as a keyboard press and then having it repeated as an item written to the screen. The key still works as it was meant to, but does not speak twice.

Thanks -- but why would that be true in that program and not true in
the command prompt? Also, if I do that, will I be able to use the
arrow keys to edit the line? I will do some experimenting.

Hi John,

I don't know if this will help you, but you might try
insert-numrow 2 which toggles speech through none, characters,
words and characters and words. You may be getting echo of both
screen input and keyboard input.

Hi. I am trying to use windows powershell which is their better
command processor with Jaws, but it repeats each character twice when
I type it. Is there any setting to fix this problem, or do you know
of a script I can get to do so?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
