  2. Arrow to Settings Center and press ENTER (You may use first letter navigation);
  3. Type “number”;
  4. “Number and Date Processing should come up;
  5. Arrow to that you wish to change and follow the prompts.

What is the command to change how jaws says numbers?  I found it under utillities last time.  But I forgot where to go after that.  I’m using jaws 18.0.1835.

Re: control shift d for dictionary manager. fill in the fields.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Control-Shift-D is to permanently delete something. Insert-D gives the Dictionary, then you hit Control-Shift-D, if you want your definition to appear in any program. If you want it program specific, just hit Enter to add your entry.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

I understand, but I was simply answering his question about the replacement part of the dictionary manager.
On another list, I've seen two other individuals expressing the same issue.

I think dictation would be well worth investigating.

In addition to what others have suggested, turning on sticky keys would
probably be a good idea, so that the student can press ctrl and alt
separately
instead of having to hold them down.

Trying to figure out why i am having a problem. When i go to my drafts folder, jaws keeps starting to speak who the message is from, and it keeps coming up and saying alert, this is a draft message.
Any ideas? It's basicly cutting messages off.

Re: beware of malware bytes

Hi Group,
Marvin was just talking about Malware Bytes.  About a month ago, my Windows 7 PC got some Malware on it.  I have a virus checker and I thought that was all I needed.  Anyway, I lost a lot of files and had to reinstall windows.  I had someone run Malware Bytes for me because they said it was the best program to run, but it didn’t seem to work well with JAWS.  What do you recommend I would use that would work well with JAWS and that would also be effective?

Hi. if you use malware bytes, be aware, some versions, can mess up your system. This is what happened to my mum, she has a old Toshiba satellite running windows vista home, and she installed malware bytes, from my 8 gb usb stick, and then she did a quick scan, removed some items, then shut down, when she booted up her machine, later on that day, she plugged in the mouse, after to trying to do any thing, the arrow disappears, machine locks up, like windows explorer, lock up not responding,a white screen, all icons go, not connected to the internet. So the only way, was when she got the message, windows could not shut down properly, she went into safe mode, went to control panel, programs and feature, uinstalled malware bytes 2.2 , and then shutdown and restarted, had normal use of her machine, so I have removed it on my machine, only have super anti spyware free, avg free, and doing a windows defender scan at the moment,  for windows 10. So, try Spybot and destroy, capersky, but does need sighted help as the 2017 installer, asks you for a capture. Read this blog on david goldfield’s site, and he uses nvda, as his main screen reader. Never used that.

Sogiving a warning, malware bytes, maybe give you malware, and lock up and emss your machine, for us screen reader users, safe mode, no audio drivers, no speech.
