I get the repeats for any item set to "None" or "Some" even without
changing any settings. (my punctuation level is set to "None" for most
programs, a few use a different profile that is set to "All").

Hi Mike,

I want it to speak those characters with punctuation set to none, but when
it speaks them, it does so twice.

Thanks for the explaination though.



Thanks,

Hi Bill,



This is why I explained how the settings in here work. He's getting double
speak for punctuation marks by setting that mark on, None, when if it were
set on, All, it might be different.



These settings work backwards than what you would think. For example; If
you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.



Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Hi, Mike. Dennis isn't drawing attention to the fact that the punctuation
is
spoken. The bug he is reporting is that the punctuation symbols are being
spoken multiple times.

Hi Dennis,



Jaws Quick Settings and Custommize Settings handles punctuation symbols
differently. Below is an explanation.



This is a note on the difference between changing punctuation settings in
Jaws quick settings, Insert + V, & customize punctuation in the Settings
Center default all applications. They work backwards from one another.



When setting punctuation in Jaws quick settings, this controls the amount
of
punctuation JAWS will speak / recognize. The default setting is most. To
hear less
punctuation spoken you would select some or none.



When making changes in the customize punctuation list, this basically tells
Jaws how much of a selected punctuation mark to ignore. If you do not want
Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you want to choose
the
" all " selection. You will have 4 radio buttons to arrow up or down
through. They are none, some, most, & all. In these selections they work
backwards than what you would think. For example; If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.



Summary: In short the Jaws quick settings tells Jaws what punctuation to
recognize / speak, & in the Settings Center default all applications /
Customize
Punctuation settings, tells Jaws what punctuation to ignore / not speak.
Hence, they work backwards from each other.

Hope this helps some of you understand the differences between the 2
punctuation setting options.
Take care.
Mike

Can someone try the following and see if you get the same reaction?



1. Load the Settings Center and select Punctuation, then Customize
Punctuation.
2. 2. You'll be placed in the list of punctuation with the layout of
3. Punctuation character, text name of that character, and the
punctuation mode for that character
4. Arrow down the list until you get to one of the following
characters.
5. Number, dollar, and, percent, at
6. 3. Set the mode for these characters to "none," then tab to and
select Ok.
7. Then tab to and select "Apply."

4. Repeat step#1 and arrow dow the list. Do those characters speak twice

So instead of

Number, the character itself,

Then number, the text name,

Then none, the mode,

I get the character announced twice, then the text name, then the mode,
such
as,

Number number number none

At at at none

Dollar dollar dollar none

Percent percent percent none

And and and none



Anyone else get this?



Thanks,

Dennis T. Brown
