Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc
Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
If you are doing serious proof-reading, text analyzer can be pretty useful, particularly if you typically do not add two spaces at the end of sentences.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
You can find out about text analyzer by pressing Insert and the number 6 on the top row of keys on your keyboard.
That will put you in a search box. Type in the word "text" and hit return.
You will get a list. Actually, you could have typed in "Text Analyzer" to go straight to Text Analyzer, but I thought seeing all the text processing options might be useful for someone who is jumping from JAWS 8 to 13.
When you get to Text Analyzer, press right arrow to open up the options. It can be turned off entirely (which is the default setting), or you can turn it on to beep on lines with problems, announce the number of problems, or actually tell you the problems.
For instance, it can say "font change at column ___" or "run of spaces at column ____" or "quote mismatch" and so on.
The run of spaces is very useful for identifying places where there are too many spaces; however, if you are in the habit of placing (or are required to place) two spaces after a period, text analyzer isn't smart enough to have that feature turned on and off.
Also, when searching for revisions in a document, the "next" feature is pretty slick, though not on the tool bar.
I have created my own hotkey in Word so that alt plus shift plus R jumps to the next revision and alt plus shift plus shift plus P jumps back to the previous revision.
It works better than the revisions tracking feature in JAWS.
If you are looking for track changes in a document another technique is to turn on those quick keys with insert plus z.
Then, you can jump from revision to revision simply with a press of the letter "r".

Hi JAWS Users
Does JAWS have the ability to read the spaces in a Word document?
I am using W7 and Word 2007.
I am proof reading a long document, and sometimes I will hit the space bar
twice, so I want to fix this in the document.
