Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?
Thanks a lot Roger for the very detailed reply which I have read numerous times in an attempt to understand what to do. Being a fairly recent convert from Windoweyes, I feel I am out of my depth so will need to read the instructions a few more times prior to making the plundge.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Yes, the punctuation script is contained in the default.jss file.
Rather than completely remove Jaws 2019 as you advise, what about if I deleted the default.jss and default.jsb files from the enu folder and ran the Jaws 2019 setup program which contains a repair feature. Would this work or create more problems?

Those instructions are incorrect. You should never modify default.jss
or default.jsb files. There are other ways that Freedom Scientific has
designed for you to create or modify JAWS behavior.
What you need to do is this:
Part A: Check your default.jss and default.jsb file
1. Open Script Manager and press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
2. See if your punctuation script is in the file. If it is, keep
following these instructions. If not, skip to Part B.
3. You need to get a clean copy of these files. The way I would
recommend is to completely remove JAWS 2019 from your system. Then
install JAWS 2019 again, but do not migrate any settings because then
you will be back where you started.
4. Check before using JAWS that this folder is completely empty:
Part B: Adding your punctuation script
1. Open Script Manager.
2. Press CTRL+O to open the Open dialog.
3. Navigate to this location: C:\ProgramData\Freedom
4. Open the file MyExtensions.jss.
5. Write your script at the bottom of this file, and press CTRL+S to compile it.
