Re: Speech on Demand

Hi Bill,


Followed your instructions below and found  the setting is already set to less speech options, speech on demand  but changed it and then changed it back prior to pressing enter on OK.  Unfortunately nothing has changed.  i.e. pressing insert space then s just gives two options, speech on and speech off.


I’ll contact F S soon to see what the problem is and how to fix it.


The Jaws about section definitely shows 2018.1802.78.


Thanks for all your help.

Hi, Tom. JAWS should not say Speech Off. It should say Speech Mute. If you press INSERT plus SPACE, S again, it should say Full Speech.


Try the following.


1. Open JAWS Settings Center.

2. In the search box, type the word speech.

3. Arrow down to Speech options, and press ENTER.

4. Open Speech Options with Right Arrow.

5. Arrow down to Less Speech Options

6. When you Arrow down to Less Speech Options, if it says Speech Mute, press Space once.

7. It will say Speech On Demand.

8. TAB to the OK box and press ENTER.


Now, when you press JAWS key plus SPACE, S, it should toggle between Full Speech and Speech On Demand.
