Hi Gudrun,

Use the file path below to get to the sounds:

C:\ProgramData \ Freedom Scientific \ JAWS \ JawsVersionNumber \ SETTINGS \ enu \ SOUNDS

I know. I've worked in JAWS 16 with the speech and sound schemes manager, but I found it painstaking, and it didn't seem to work right away. I made many adjustments in Word to indicate different attributes to speed up proofreading, but it took considerable tweaking and redoing.

I have not found the sounds directories under settings\enu to contain any files. I've tried versions 16, 17, 18, and 2018. Nada.

Hi Tony,

Damn, don't that just suck! Out of curiosity, did you use an application specific dictionary manager, or the default JDF dictionary manager?

Thank you for your reply. I tried dictionary manager, and I can set a custom sound for punctuation marks, but when I try it out, the sounds are very unreliable. I can hear my sound being played only in 50% of the times. Moreover, if the punctuation is in the middle of the sentence, Jaws doesn't pause the speech and there is no particular order in which the sound is played.

Hi Tony,

One thing that comes to mind is to use the dictionary manager. I know it can be done, but I just can't give exact steps.

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
