Are you guys saying JAWS French pronunciation can't handle this? That seems about as weird as stumbling over Bill or John in English.

I too know someone by the name, Jeanne. It is almost impossible to
get the "soft" J sound. The closest that I have been able to come,
with her name, is "jian". The sound is correct, except for the
slightly harder "J" sound. At least, I recognize her name, and it's
much better than "Jeannie", or "Janine".
Give it a try.

I suggested Zjawn, but that Jeanne is pronounced like Jee Ann by JAWS.
I have a French Canadian friend, Jeanne, who will tell you that her

I'd probably tell it to pronounce it as zhahn or zhauhn. Thought it's

Hi, all:

Is there a way to get JAWS to replicate the French soft J sound, as
in
"Jean Valjean"? I was trying to change its pronunciation of that
name in the dictionary manager program, but couldn't get it to
pronounce
it
as I knew it should be pronounced. Any pointers, appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Use of virtual ribbons and keyboard manager

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

It's a menu structure that supersedes the ribbons Ms began using in Office 2007. Frankly, I think the ribbons are just as easy as the JAWS workaround, but it's a matter of taste.

I read the instructions to switch the echo level, and those instructions were very good.
Now I am trying to use a keystroke to switch the use of virtual ribbons, but when I look for use of virtual ribbons or something like that, it doesn't appear in the default list. There is a way to switch the virtual ribbons on or off through a keystroke?
Maybe through a script, but I have no idea what is the function to switch the virtual ribbon function on/off.
Thanks for any help.

Agree with that; same with punctuation. Another is Speak Dollar Last. I have had to set it in Outlook and in Documents. Wherever I go, I have to set it.
Once set, it should be universal. It's bad enough to have to set it. I realize that if JAWS is sold to someone in England, that might not be important, but if the dollar sign comes first, the thing should be spoken to speak last. That seems so simple to me, and to think that way down through JAWS 16, and it doesn't? Well, JAWS makes it possible for me to even use a computer, so I am very glad for what I have.

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,
Yes, but I was looking something quicly, and easyer. The number of steps to get to the ribbon option are around 3, when the options are just 2, yes or no. Would be easyer to switch this binary value with just a keystroke instead 3.
Because of that I was thinking that probably through a script or through the keyboard manager fits the possibility to do it.

Hi Jo,

I think what you want is to display paragraph marks so jaws will
indicate when you reach the end of a paragraph. To do this,

Go to options under the file tab by pressing alt F T.
You will find yourself in a list of categories. Arrow down once to
display, then tab over and explore your options for which marks to
display. Make sure to check the box for paragraph marks. Tab to ok and
press enter.

Now when you read your document with the up and down arrows (line by
line, you will hear jaws say "paragraph mark" when you reach the end
of a paragraph.

I hope this helps.

On that, specify caps only. Of course, that would also apply to Ms. Stapleton. Rather reminds me of the episode where Archie had a hospital roommate from Martinique, but that is another story.

Re: what to expect with jaws 17

You're right, that's how it should work, but on this system following that link simply starts the program. It might be possible to download while it's playing; I might try playing with it a little more. I looked for a workable link on the FS site, but had no luck. I might not have looked hard enough. Maybe I should launch an actual search.

Re: Using JAWS & Dragon Naturally Speaking at the same time

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

Sorry to be so late here. I use Dragon Naturally Speaking all the
time.
It is truly fantastic, and I do not use J-SAY.
I have an expired license for J-SAY, and it might be useful on my
home computer.
I cannot use it, however, on my work computer, and I'm afraid
anyone who tries to use J-SAY in a highly secure work environment
will have troubles.
I gave up on J-SAY after an aborted attempt by our IT Department
to install it.
It may have been J-SAY's copy protection system, or it may have
been our hyper-secure environment.
The two never played well together, and finally, did not play with
each other at all.
Perhaps J-SAY has relaxed its copy protection scheme. I know our
security restrictions are now at least 3 times higher.
I, therefore, use Naturally Speaking with JAWS by itself.
Training is a little challenging, as I recall, though training
persists from version to version.
There are some settings that are pretty crucial, but if you get
the settings right, you should be fine.
The problem is that I no longer have the documentation for optimal
use. I would send the settings documentation if I had it.
One thing I do remember is that Naturally Speaking must be
operated from the System Tray.
There is also a screen-reader friendly mode, and that helps with
menus. Without J-SAY, you will not hear JAWS read back text as
you dictate. That takes some getting used to, but reviewing the
text, using the keyboard, is pretty easy, and Dragon Naturally
Speaking is now, almost as advertised, 98% accurate.
It won't be that accurate immediately, but over time, it improves.
So, do not give up on it after only a couple of days.

Jim, J-Say has extensive documentation on all of the functions
supported.
It's really some of the best documentation I have ever seen. I
believe the cost for J-Say is around $600, I know the price
dropped when version 13, the latest version was released. I have
not used Dragon by itself, and have not really explored their
documentation either. I do know that without J-Say, one would
have to use the keyboard to review dictation, and for those who
have difficulty using the keyboard, this would be a problem.

In terms of ease of use, is the J-Say product different, in any
way, from Dragon Naturally Speaking? Also, how do the prices
compare?

Thanks.

Hi Again Tom,

I use this combination with the J-Say product from Hartgen
Consultancy.
With J-Say, dictation is echoed automatically. I did need to
lower my resolution on my Surface Pro, as the default setting was
too high, and dictation was not echoed. Once making this
adjustment, it works well.

Is anyone using JAWS & Dragon Naturally Speaking at the same time?
Is it worth it? How well do they work together?

Re: Windows 10--what has replaced programs and features???

Nermin
 

Hi Ann,

press Windows Key+x, which will open up a context menu. In that menu, the first item you land on should be programs and features.
Press enter on that, and you can uninstall the software.
Also, you might want to check if the software in question has an uninstall icon in its programme group.

Regards,
Nermin

detecting formatting in word 2013 especially paragraphs

Jodie Hoger
 

Hi List,
I am doing an editing exercise using word 2013 and JAWS 16. I need to be able to detect paragraphs in the document so that I can highlight them and change their formatting eg., re-align the paragraph etc.
for the life of me I cannot find the commands to do this. Using a full keyboard.
Thanks for any advice.

Re: JAWS on a Microsoft Surface Pro

Pablo Morales
 

It works perfectly.
I am using jaws not on a surface pro 3, I feel it so big, and I need it to
be able to move around in my work, so a device with 13 inches of frame is a
little bit uncomfortable. But I am using a surface pro 2, it is 10 inches
wide, smaller, and works better than my desktop.

I just bought JAWS for the first time and someone suggested using it on a
Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Has anyone done this? Does JAWS work as well and as
quickly as it does on a laptop? Thanks,

another Youtube question

Sandra Streeter
 

Thanks to all who contributed to my ongoing French language question. Zhawn works perfectly, with my current configs.

Now to the next thing, and I apologize if it’s been addressed earlier: I am a huge nostalgia buff, and occasionally like checking out old commercials/New England TV news bumper music or whatever else. The other day, I had tuned in to some news music, and it had a running list, and you couldn’t click on the individual tunes, because the actual Youtube made JAWS impossible to hear. Is there a way to reduce the Youtube volume enough so you can hear about what’s listed on the screen (e.g., links specific to the individual songs in the going list, or whatever)? Thanks again!

Re: Outlook check contact name

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Thanks again. I did try the Control K; it worked.

Also, in case anyone else has Outlook 2013 and has struggled like I have,
Joseph the Free Tech Guy worked with me and sent a tutorial. I understand
now, that when I get into a new e-mail, that I have to, in the address
field:

1. Press Alt Period.
2. Shift Tabe once.
3. Up Arrow once to names.
4. Tab to the list of Contacts.
5. Arrow through and press Enter on the selected name for the e-mail.
6. Once the name or names are chosen, press Enter twice.
7. Then continue with Subject and Body of the e-mail.

I had Outlook Express, so just have had to learn a new process to accomplish
the same end.

The Control K, in the instance that I tried from your e-mail brought me
anything address with an I in it, since I chose I realizing that there would
not be a lot, but it was surprising how many had an I in them.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn. I'm afraid this got buried in the discussion thread regarding
the virtual ribbon.

The MS Outlook shortcut to check names is CONTROL + K. It will pop up with a
list of names from your contacts that match the few letters you've typed in
so far.

Hope that helps.

Speaking of the ribbons, do yall know what commands I execute to check
names on contact list, not search, so that when I start an e-mail and
press Alt
Period, the names will appear?

Best from,

Carolyn
