Try changing the punctuation to most. I had the same problem with another screen reader.  Also, try Mike’s suggestions as well.  Like him, I can’t duplicate the problem you are having and yes, there are websites that offer the Daily Text.  On that website though, you can listen to the bible in MP3 format by downloading a particular verse or book of the bible. Take heart, like I said, I have heard that type of problem with another screen reader.  It would read the same thing you are hearing.  Since I didn’t know how to fix it, I just put up with it.  I have not had that problem since switching to JAWS.  I just have to go into the dictionary to make sure it pronounces Gen.  as Genisis not general or Ps. As Psalms.  Come to think of it, try going into the JAWS dictionary and fixing it that way if you can.

Whenever I am reading the bible with JAWS it reads John 3:16 as 3 hours 16 minutes. What do I need to change in JAWS to have this read it right?

Hi Stanley,
 
I can't reproduce your reading issue.  What are your settings in, Settings Center / Text Processing / Number & Date Processing / these 3 settings:
Numeric Date Processing
Number Processing &
Speak Single Digits
 
Are you using Eloquence, or something different?  Also, which Jaws version, & what operating system.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Possible "superscript" reading problem with JAWS 18 - latest update ...

Soronel Haetir
 

I would suggest you send a message about this to support@freedomscientific.com

I find it especially bizarre that it translates '3th' into 'third'
(and the vocalizer expressive voice I use does say 'third' even
without a superscript marking as I am writing this message).

Good day Listers:

Recently, I read an e-mail with "June 13th". I have set JAWS to read the

However, JAWS did not say: "June thirteenth". Instead, it said: "June
first, third". This is not the first time that I have heard this specific
kind of error; but, as when reading the above, I do not hear it most of the

Does anyone have any idea what could account for this?

For now, I am turning off that feature - assuming that I can find it in my

Re: problem with Jaws and, at least, Thunderbird

Sometimes it helps to repair the inbox.


Right click on the folder or choose properties from the file menu.

Tab a few times to get to repair.


All the thread and sort settings go back to defaults.
You will need to re-sort your messages again from the view menu.

Hi,

In response, that reminded me that I did not give all of the information. I tried pressing the escape key to get out of the unspoken email. It did not close the message, but it did say I, believe, virtual cursor. At any rate, I could not get out of the message without doing an alt-f4 to close the message. Sometimes, the only way to get out of the problem, because I end up with no speach, is to close Jaws. Funny thing about that is that Jaws says closing Jaws.

Hello Group Members,

I am running Win7 PC with Jaws 18 and have a problem wherein when reading messages in Thunderbird, I press enter on a message and everything is fine for a number of messages. Then, all of a sudden, Jaws will read the subject line and add something about where my email files are stored and then, there is no more speech. Sometimes, well, at least twice, it worked for me to invoke the touch cursor and then the PC cursor and Jaws would read the email.

I can tab out of the email and Jaws will read everything else, but going back to the email message, there is no speech. It is not related to one message, as I can go back to a message that was already read and it will have the same issue.

The only way I have found to solve the issue is to unload Jaws and start it up again.

Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sometimes, I will reload and only get through a couple of messages before this happens again. At other times, I can do all of my email, often with over 100 messages with no trouble at all.

Thank you.

Carol

Hi, Everyone.
I'm using JFW13 and Win 7. I need to proofread a Braille document for a transcription course, and its original source that it was transcribed from is a .pdf. I was thinking I could use JFW's Say All function to read the .pdf while I read the Braille to proof for mistakes. I saw an option to get JFW to read whether something is capitalized. But I didn't see anything relating to punctuation. Is there something I can use or change to get punctuation to be read aloud?

Thanks Sieghard, Carol, and Tom,

I am glad to know all this.  I wasn’t sure if it was only for onscreen stuff or was heading toward replacing OpenBook since very little development has been done in OB.

 

This will come in handy.

Hi Carol,

 

What you say about Convenient OCR not being able to convert images on the screen is not entirely correct.

It is correct hat the command Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and D requires focus to be in Adobe Reader with a PDF open.

However, if you open any image in any program such as Windows Photo Viewer and said image has focus on the screen, you can use the command to perform OCR on either the entire screen or the Window, instead of "D" for "document" you would use "S" for Screen or "W" for "Window. Of course first you press the layered keystroke to bring up Convenient OCR, then follow it by "S" or "W", there is also the option for "C" which recognizes any controls you may have focused on like a graphical button.

Sieghard

gmail mass deletion jaws issue

marvin hunkin <startrekcafe@...>
 

Hi. go to the gmail site, sign in, try to use the jaws find feature Select all and cannot find the select all button. Want to delete mass e-mails and did look at brian’s vogel tutorial how to do this.

So not working, see if the other browsers see this, will try google chrome, internet explorer. If it does not show up. Are there any external programs you recommend, which will allow me to do a search, and then a mass deletion, to the trash, then empty the trash.

Any ideas.

Using jaws 18.0.2345 64 bit , windows 10 64 bit pro version 1703, and firefox 52, and google chrome 44, think latest version. So will try those other browsers. If same issue. Unless have to try with nvda, see if it will bring that up.

Any ideas.

Thanks.

Hi Sieghard,

When I was trying to do this the other day, everybody kept trying to tell me that I could only use the OCR function after I opened a scanned image in Adobe.  Now that you have given me the complete set of availability and keystorkes, I might go back and see if I can now read my picture text that I received.  Thank you for this.
