moderated Re: customizing JAWS announcements

Udo Egner-Walter

Hi Shai,

If you follow Leo's solution this will change the speaking of all keys you change in this dialog. But if you only want to mute speaking of Control+N in outlook and Windows+D for activating the desktop you need a script.

I made a script that works like this:

Shortcut assigned to scripts won't be spoken by JAWS. So I assign one of your shortcuts to my script. In doing this JAWS will run my script every time you use this shortcut and won't speak the shortcut. In my script there's a single line passing the shortcut pressed to the app. So for example if you press Windows+D my script will pass this on to activate the desktop but since the script has a shortcut JAWS will not speak this.

If you are interested I can mail the script either here in this list or to your personal address and describing how to install. But you should know there's no easy way of installing scripts and you have to manually edit files.

Let me know if you're interested.

Best wishes

I have set my JAWS verbosity to intermediate in settings center and I
am trying to figure out how to eliminate the announcement of my
pressing control n in Outlook or a windows d to get to the desktop.
Is there an option I should check?
Thank you in advance for any responses.
