Re: more Jaws problems from my list...

This is not an alt text problem. It is java script that Jaws is reading and
gettting stuck in/on for some reason...I took the advice and went into
default settings and turned off the graphics labeling... in time we'll see
if this helps...

Marty, Most likely the numbers are bing read as the person that created the
web site didn't use an alt label to tell a screen reader what the graphic
shows. Does it say link by that graphic? Which web site does happen on? Did
you get the email I sent you the other day about graphics/pictures on a web
site? This is related to my web development class.

Rick, I am using an internal synth and also experience JAWS reading
seemingly endless strings of numbers, characters and letters when down
arrowing through a web page. I can usually get JAWS to stop by hitting the
Control Key, but sometimes, that does not even work. I was told just
yesterday that these may be labeld graphics. I have changed the way JAWS
reads graphics. I can't remember where I was able to do this as a friend
walked me through it over the phone. I do remember that there were three
options, All graphics, Labeld Graphics only, or No graphics. Maybe someone
else on this list can help find this setting for you.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the
spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist
in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Move to the modern age? Ditch the Triple talk?

Modern systems aren't going to be strained by a speech synthesizer, most
cpu's are idling a lot of the time anyway. I suspect the issue is that some
webpages are putting out text strings that look similar to tripple talk
commands. Might be time to move to the more modern age.

I am shy of software synthesizers as offered with Jaws. The triple

regards to resources. This is a triple talk issue and both sides blame

Does this speaking these strange characters happen with other
synthesizers or just the tripple talk? I have had some websites where
the tripple talk does not work, but other synths do work.

Hi All,

To begin, I thank you all for helping Zel and me with the
sluggishness of
Jaws due to not disabling the graphics accelerator option. This did
show a great amount of improvement but I still notice some
sluggishness, but not as bad, in MS Xcell.
Now, let?s work on a couple more issues I have with Jaws.

First, I could be going down through a website one line at a time
Jaws begins to read some sort of java script. It just continues to
read so many characters of all kinds. Including letters, numbers and
symbols as punctuation marks etc. It is reading at a very high speed,
as well and it is difficult to hear all characters read aloud.
There is no way to stop this and I either have to do a hard shut down
since the pc now becomes frozen while Jaws goes crazy or I turn off my
external synthesizer and jaws and then go through a process of turning
all back on in a special sequence.
I use: Windows 10, Jaws 2019 latest update and a triple-talk USB
synthesizer. My pc has 8 GB of ram and has plenty of amount when I put
a test on the system with many programs open and functioning
Is there a setting or a hopeful fix to prevent this from happening?
is very difficult when I am going over code received from colleagues
and my pc goes senile on me.
Next, when I hit F7 to do a spell check, Jaws practically goes to
sleep. I
hit escape or tab over to the original outlook message and copy paste
into a Microsoft Word document to do the spell/grammar check.
Any thoughts on this baffling issue?

I hope to hear of all your thoughts regarding these problems addressed.

Thanks to all,
