Re: Reading text with colors

Hi Lee Anne,

Ah, you know what I'm working on. I did find that by pressing the next
button on the Display for Markup toolbar, that I did at least move to the
next markup point. In earlier Jaws, I could then read what it said, but now
it is silent and I had to press escape to get back to the text, and then try
and figure out the change. So much for Jaws progress. I hate having to try
and figure out how Jaws now works or doesn't work when I'm kind of in a
hurry. lol.

I'll try Ed's suggestions and see how it goes.

This is an issue. I had to use sighted help to evaluate the feedback. As
much of a pain as it is, you might have to get sighted help or try to hear
where the feedback is different. Also I heard on a list you could "merge"
the 2 documents and then you could tell where the differences were but I
have never done that.

I am sorry I can't be of more help...

Subject: Reading text with colors

I'm using Jaws 13 and Word 2003. I'm working with documents with text markup
done in red. I need to hear the color changes within the lines of text. I've
set the Speech and Sounds manager to Colors, and Jaws will indicate color
change if an entire paragraph is a different color, but not if the color is
on only a couple of words. I've also tried the Attributes and Colors, as
that would be my preferred choice of manager for these docs. But I get the
same. Jaws only indicates the color for a paragraph, not for changed words.

What am I missing?
