Re: Having JFW 12 read a phone number as one word

Getting phone numbers read is hell,in Uk to ring USA you remove the first
number then add 001 and like as not finish up speaking to a stranger, and
the brackets are a nuisance a friend now using Jaws once worked as a
telephonist years ago he said he could memorise long numbers spoken as no
computers then, anddid not make mistakes, why I can only just remember next
version of jaws is number13, and was told it was going to skip toJaws14
sender said in Hotels they never have a floor that is13,but jump to14 from
12 I have never noticed that in the UK butvcounting is a gift I do not have,
never trust people who say there are ten stairs, they always miscount and I
have injuries to prove that! Sorry about that!

Ann, thanks actually with keyboard echo set to Words I actually had to
turn OFF smart reading. Sounds weird but it worked.
Thanks
Frank

turn on smart reading. That's supposed to treat a phone number as a
single unit.

The hyphens tell JAWS to separate the three sets of numbers. You would
need to write all ten digits without any separators, including spaces.

Hi all can anyone tell me what number processing options need to be set
to have JFW read a phone number as one word. For example if I type
617-222-2345 I don't want JFW to speak at all until after I typed the
5.
Hope that makes snese.
Frank
