Hi Adrian/all,

My congratulations for having your novel published Adrian, this is good. I have always maintained a dream of writing a something either a silly novel, or something on the middle ages onboard a steamer cruising the seas and ports of the world, with me maintaining a luxury  cabin where I could work, spending my time with writing, visiting places, eating bestially and being entertained in the company of pleasant ladies

!!! Now to our points. Actually it has been within office that I have used the symbol, I use left cntrl-alt-e, or same combination with epsilon when on a Greek keyboard, but perhaps this is because I have a laptop keyboard in jaws? However, I am almost always using an office program when I need to use that symbol, so there may be a point, although I think I have produced the same effect outside office once. That’s why I said to Patrick that it seems that I am always getting the euro symbol without having done anything particular.

                                                                Cheers to all,


Takis, did you see Soronel’s JAWS key+4 suggestion? This key combo brings up a list of symbols. It isn’t exhaustive, but it does include the euro. As Soronel suggests, once the list is opened, press f to go to the first item after the euro, then up-arrow once to euro. (I realize I’m assuming the same options appear in your version, which may not be the case.)



My novel Caroline is now available in paperback, Kindle and audiobook versions and, for qualified readers in the US, at the National Library Service/BARD. Go to:

Hi Patrick/all,

Unfortunately I do not know why, but in my case, writing from Greece=eurozone, jaws always says euro when I use this combination. Hope someone understands and can be of greater help.

can anyone help me with this?
i know, that the shortcut key in windows for the euros symbol is ctrl-alt-e.
however, when i press this shortcut, jaws says "e ecute".
i know this sounds funny, but it is saying the letter "e" with some sort of symbol after it, like a french accent or something like that.
i was able to get it to say "euros sign" before with this combination.
i have searched the settings center up and down, and i cannot find anything.
please, please, please help me before i go insane!!!
i am using jaws 2021 latest version.
it is not related to any particular program, it happens for everything.

regards and thanks,
