moderated Re: Find/Replace Formatting in Word
Hi Kelby,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
JAWS don't announces the format in this dialog automatically. Sometimes this can be hard because the format changed here could be from a search and replace round you did before. To find out the format you made either for the find edit box or for the replace edit box you could use the TouchCursor.
This isn't comfortable so I made a JAWS script to get informed about the format being made in one of the two edit boxes by pressing a key. The problem is that Microsoft didn't name the controls in this dialog in a unique way so I had to look for language specific text in this dialog. Since I'm using a German Word version this strings differ from strings in an English version.
If someone here in this list can help out finding this English text strings I can translate my script to the English version. To do so I should know the exact name of the dialog title as well as the text being displayed in front of the format. This could be something like "Format:". Another string I should know is the string for displaying the options. It could be something like "Options:". If someone sighted is here to find this out or someone can use TouchCursor to find this out I can translate the script. Its important to know about lower and upper case.
All the best
