2.In the tree view, navigate to and expand Voice Aliases, then select
Customize Voice Aliases.
3.Press F6 to move to the Voice Aliases page, and choose the Voice Aliases

yes you can change the voice, but off the top of my head i can not remember
just how. if you listen to eric's podcast about it he tells you in there
how to change the voice. i am sending a report to have them make the defalt
for the o c r part different then the one they have it is really hard to

Hi, all.

I have just noticed a strange problem when using Jaws with my work computer when in Microsoft Word.

When I am editing a document, all of the other characters speak except for the space. In other words, when I hit the space bar, nothing happens. It used to be that Jaws would say "blank", to indicate the existence of a blank space.

I have never seen this happen before, and can't imagine why Jaws will not speak this character.

Does anyone have suggestions for correcting this?

Just for the record, I'm using Jaws 11 with Windows XP and office 2007 at work.

Thanks!

Tom from Michigan

Pi symbol

ferretdance83 <ferretdance83@...>
 

I am using JAWS 10 with Vista. JAWS does not read the pi symbol in Microsoft Word or in emails/IE8. In fact, JAWS does not recognize the Symbol font at all. I can't fix this with the graphics labeler; tried, but fonts aren't graphics, apparently. Can I fix this with JAWS 10? Is this a problem in later versions as well?

Re: Unassisted windows 7 install

Darrell Bowles <DGBOWLES@...>
 

Well, actually, I am interested in creating an unassisted windows install,
as quite truly, There may come a time whare I might need to reinstall it.
Saying that this has nothing to do with jaws is not true. JAWS may not
come preinstalled like VoiceOver, but that has little to do with JAWS users
needing the help. Now, I used N Lite to create my answer file, and burned
my copy of windows to a disc like you're supposed to. What is supposed to
happen if the install worked, and what should I do after I insert the CD.
Also, what about the boot file inside the original CD?

James, no offence but do you think if I wasn't a jaws user I would have
subscribed to this list just to ask this question? Yes I get what you
are saying installing windows doesn't automatically mean you're going
to install jaws but I've been on this list for a long time now and
wouldn't have been if I wasn't a jaws user. My personal opinion is that
people mustn't even open mails if the topic doesn't concern them, if I
have to open every mail coming from this list I'll go crazy.

I believe this is a JAWS issue and here's why:

Because JAWS does not come pre-loaded in a Windows install like
Voiceover does, there is a "bootstrapping" process that one must
endeavor to repeat in order to install Windows so that JAWS can then
be installed.

Generally, I'm in favor of keeping the list on topic, especially
when folks abuse the priviledge. But I don't think this is the case
here and there seems to be widespread interest in the topic, as it's
a situation faced by every JAWS user sooner or later.

Or so it seems to me.

research it in jaws 13

Alex Stone <alex.stone@...>
 

I've installed JAWS 13 today, and generally I think it's pretty good.
However, using Research It to look things up on Wikipedia, when I click the
"click this link" to see the full article, it is opened in Internet
explorer. I wouldn't have a problem with this, except that my default
browser is Firefox. In Jaws 12 the article would open in Firefox as I would
expect. I don't like Internet Explorer, so why are Freedom Scientific
forcing me to use it?

Cheers

Alex

Re: A Script for Scripts

John Martyn
 

On a Mac, you can record actions like this with the applescript editor. Sounds interesting.

Subject: A Script for Scripts


All:
I thought I would share this idea with the list both to test the soundness of the idea and, perhaps, to determine whether something like this already exists. If it does, I am not aware of it.
There are a number of situations where it would be nice if I had a simple script to perform a number of otherwise repetitive tasks, principally just keystrokes. So, what I'm really talking about is a macro. One can, in fact, create a script which is little more than a series of keystrokes, a macro masquerading as a script. Unfortunately, to write such a script, one needs to go through the fairly tedious process of entering the keystrokes. Even when one uses the command list box, the process is tedious, at best.
So, here is my idea.
What if some clever person were to write a script which, when activated, simply recorded keystrokes? Those keystrokes would then be written into a plain old text file, one that could be accessed with the Notepad ?
The keystrokes would be written in Jaws script format. Once the desired series of keystrokes were completed, one could turn off the key recorder script.
Then, one could go to the script manager with in JAWS, create a new script, assign a keystroke to it, and then paste in the recorded keystrokes.
That would be yet. In effect, the macro would become a script.
Of course, once in the script manager, one could add other commands such as the command to turn the voice off and turn it back on again. The point is that this process would make script writing really easy. Now, if someone is in the business of writing scripts, why would they want to write something like this?
My argument is that this script, the key recorder script, would not detract from the market for real scripts that do complicated things like reading the attributions of a Windows object. I will leave those scripts to those with the time, inclination, training, and ability to do so.
The simple macro like scripts, however, I think I can do myself, and with a tool like that described above, I would do it.
I realize there are separate programs that one can run to record and playback a series of keystrokes. I am just reluctant to add one more layer of complexity to my already too complicated computer by adding yet another program running in the background. Somehow, I don't think of a compiled script as adding that much complexity.
