Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Tom <tomcat509@...>

Following is the punctuation script and where it is available along with installation instructions.

Maybe it does needs compiling again under Jaws 2019 and so I’ll try that solution.

Follow these steps to insert the code required to set up a hot key to toggle the Jaws punctuation level.

press insert 0 (on the number row).
press control shift D
You should hear jaws script manage default.jss.
Hit control+end this will take you to the bottom of the file.
Hit enter twice, to insert a couple of blank lines.
paste in the following lines for the script:

Script TogglePunctuation ()
Say (PunctuationToggle (false), ot_no_disable)

Place your cursor on the line that says Say (PunctuationToggle (false), ot_no_disable).
Hit control+d.
Hit tab this will put you on the "can be attached to key" check box, this should be checked, if it is not hit "space bar" to check it.
Hit tab this will take you to the "synopsis" where you can put in a short description if you want.
Tab to the "assign short cut key" field and press the keystroke you want to use for the script. Such as Control+Shift+P.
Tab to the okay button and enter. This will take you back to the script editor.
Press control+S to compile your changes.
Press Alt-F4 to close the script editor

I haven't heard of this particular script.

Just to verify, is this a third-party script for which you were
provided with the .jsb file? If so, please make sure you can locate
the file in the following location:
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Settings\enu If you have the .jss and/or .jsh
file, you should probably show it to someone who knows how to read it
to verify that it's not calling on a particular script or function or
something that's been moved around in JAWS 2019.

I have experienced a problem with the punctuation script since upgrading
from Jaws 2018 to 2019.

Under 2018, the script could be run from anywhere on the system but since
changing to 2019, the only place the script works is when it is run from
desktop. If I am in a folder on another drive say, hitting shift control
Jaws says, "unknown script call to".

If I still wish to change the punctuation level then it is a trip back to
the Desktop and try again.
