Re: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

Hi Mario,
I only have Jaws 2018 and thanks to your info, I found them in:
"C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS"

I don't know that I'll ever do anything with this, but it is fun to know about. Someone at Freedom Scientific must have been a Victor Borge fan.

For those who do not know that name, he was an excellent pianist, but also a very funny comedian who had a great routine about phonetic punctuation.

You can check it out on YouTube:

Thanks,
Richard

Right, but if one wanted to use a custom sound, it would be necessary to
know where the folder is, unless there isn't one and they are simple
part of the program.

Thanks,
Richard

Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come
from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of
JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this. Quite interesting. You hit add, then tab
over to the list of sounds.

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Thanks,
Richard

Hello Tony,
Dictionary Manager may suit your needs.
Place cursor on the offending punctuation mark.
Press insert D
Follow the instructions, and press alt F4 to implement the changes.

Hello all,


Is there a way to substitute punctuation marks with custom sounds? I am
a developer and often times I have to listen to tongue twisters of
punctuation marks, like "left bracket right brace left paren ..." I wish
to replace all these parens and brackets with sounds. Is there a way to
do so in Jaws?


Thanks

Tony
