I've used that in a combo box many times.

Hi, Glenn. These commands will repeat a line, but they won't repeat the label for a combo box or the descriptive text for an edit box, which is what Mark was looking for.

Does not say word or say line not work?

These are the oldest of Jaws commands.

Using the insert pad, it is insert + 5 or insert + 8.

Or if using laptop layout, caps lock K or I.

Subject: Getting the PC cursor to repeat what it just said

 

Is there a keyboard command to have the PC Cursor repeat itself?  With the Virtual PC cursor, there are reading commands that repeat the same line or word, like JAWS + H.  But sometimes I don't quite hear what the PC cursors is saying, like when describing an interface element, like a combo box.  My only strategy at this point is to tab away and then tab back. But it feels like there should be a single command to repeat what was said.
