moderated Re: stop telling me "not selected"

Adrian Spratt

I'd be selective (pun accidental) in making this choice. Hearing "not selected" has saved me thousands of times from pasting a file into, rather than alongside, another file. I'd open the program where you don't want to hear it, and then open JAWS settings. I'd be sure not to apply it globally with shift-control-d.

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:

Thank you! I'd have never looked in there.

Hi everyone.

In several programs I use JAWS frequently says "not selected", which
in some of these programs makes no sense. In the speech verbosity
settings I could have sworn that there was an option to turn off JAWS
saying this but I cannot seem to find it. I guess I am looking in the
wrong place, I tried searching for it but came up with nothing.

Anyone know where this setting is?
