Hi, Soronel. When trying to use the power shell, you might try using NONE as opposed to Echo Highlighted. This might prevent duplication of vocalization. An easy way to change this is INSERT plus S. It will toggle between all, highlighted and none.

I am set to echo characters only (rather than none, characters and
words or words only) and echo highlighted (rather than none or all). I
am not aware of any other echo settings that would apply to this

Maybe you have key echo set differently?

I rarely use powershell but I can tell you that I do not experience a
double character echo. I could not tell you what settings difference
to look at, just letting you know that this is not an inherent problem
with jaws.

OK, I will try that. Thanks.

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.

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.

of a script I can get to do so?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
