moderated Re: checked spoken after every file and item

First, what version of Windows are you using?


I had the same problem with Windows 11 and the latest JAWS. I checked folder options, and the option for checked items wasn’t on.


Eventually, I totally turned my laptop off. When I rebooted, the problem was gone. I have no idea if something else happened before that.


Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Hi Jim,


Try the following:
1. From your desktop press enter on the, This PC, icon if you have one, or press, Windows key + E, to take you to This PC.
2. Press, Alt + F, then the letter, O, for folder options, now, Control + Tab, to the, View page / tab.
3. Tab to the, advanced settings tree view, now press the letter, U , until you hear Jaws report, Use checkboxes to select items...., if this is, On, press
the spacebar to uncheck / turn it off.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.



Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Heya folks,


All of a sudden my Jaws is saying the word “checked” spoken after every file and item when I scroll thru files and desktop items, is there something I accedentally enabled?
