Re: turning off announcement of...
he just tried it but it didn't work. he made the entry in the defaulttoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
dictionary and even unloaded/reloaded JAWS, and after the keyboard is
locked, the announcement of what to press is still spoken.
how would he split up the announcement as you specified? give an example
using this announcement he doesn't want.

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space
for the text that annoys you.
For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to
When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up
into smaller chunks.
The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being
spoken so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary
Hope this helps,

my friend is using Windows 10 with JAWS 2018 and locks his keyboard
occasionally to prevent accidental presses of keys while he's not using
it for a while, and wants to know if there's a way to disable/turn
off/suppress the announcement on what to press to unlock the keyboard.
he looked at the quick settings but didn't find such a setting. he also
disabled the announcement of tutor messages, figuring the announcement
might be a tutor message, and did unload and reload JAWS, but the
message was still being announced. anyone have an idea?
