a slight correction, I saide "from now on...". the change does not
persist. it is restored to toggling between full speech and speech on
demand. however there is a setting in the default configurations named
Less Speech Options which can be toggled to Mute Speech. press enter
twice and reboot. the toggling between full speech and speech mute
should now persist future reboots.

btw, I'm still using Windows 7 with JAWS 2018. don't know if this works
in latest versions of JAWS in Windows 10.

JMCasey, you were right all along.

Ah yes. That works, and is faster.

the way I know how to toggle between full speech and speech mute is to
first make sure the verbosity is set to speech on demand.
then press insert+spacebar shift+s.

from now on, insert+spacebar s will toggle between full speech and
speech mute.

Hi.

There is a setting in, I think, “speech options” where you can switch
the insert-space, s toggle between “speech on demand” and “no speech”.

I have mine set to “no speech”, since I tend to use braille 99% of the
time nowadays and hardly use speech at all, but still want to be able to
turn it on quickly from time to time.

I have found that some scripts, notably, ones for Skype, break this
feature. As in, they will turn speech back on, and after this, the
toggle will not work at all until a JAWS restart. This is a bug of some
kind, which I will probably report; I just need to figure out which
scripts, exactly, are causing this. Anyway, other than that, it works
pretty well.

Hello,

I would like to turn off speech during a hangout meeting.

I was trying to make souch profile to activate with insert+ctrl+s but
this seems not to work.

Is there a quick way to turn off speech for a time or in a specific
situation?

Kind regards

William Windels
