Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this. Quite interesting. You hit add, then tab over to the list of sounds.

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Hello all,


Is there a way to substitute punctuation marks with custom sounds? I am a developer and often times I have to listen to tongue twisters of punctuation marks, like "left bracket right brace left paren ..." I wish to replace all these parens and brackets with sounds. Is there a way to do so in Jaws?

Anyone have any idea why JAWS 18 would crash while reading tables in Adobe
Reader 11?
I'm trying to get JAWS to read a PDF which consists of a table on each
page. There is no text in-between the tables.
JAWS can read the table fine if I only use the arrow key to go from cell to
cell, but that is pretty darn tedious when you are trying to get through a
document with 15 pages of tables!
If I use Say All to let JAWS read the whole thing, when JAWS reaches a
certain point in the table, it advances to the next page, then rapidly
flips to the next, and the next, and finally crashes.
This has happened on multiple different pdf's.

Thanks, Laura


Re: Gmail

Lynda, there isn't a typing tutorial built into JAWS (you'd have to get
a program for a typing tutorial), but it does have a feature that will
allow you to explore the keyboard so you can get familiar where keys on
the keyboard are located. you can enable this feature by pressing
insert+1 , that's the 1 above the letters. notice that pressing
combinations of keys, like control+a, announces what that combination
does. if you press the a twice while holding the control down, JAWS will
give you a more detailed description of what the combination does. this
also applies to JAWS specific combinations like insert+page down, as
well as (I think) Windows combinations.

when you're done exploring the keyboard, just press insert+1 to disable
"keyboard help".

BTW, NVDA has the same feature using the same insert+1 to enable and
disable the feature.

Re: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

yes it can. you just specify which wav sound you want instead of typing
a replacement text. if you want the pause that a period provides, you'd
put a period in the replacement but the period won't be spoken.

Have you had someone sighted observe what is happening?
Or do you have MS Word 2013 or 2016 to try opening that document in Word to see if you can access the information that way?
I guess you could call Freedom Scientific to see if they could help.
But, I have no idea why JAWS would crash like that.

Hi Richard,



You can reset Ctrl + PageUp and Ctrl + PageDown to moving by page after doing a find by doing Ctrl + G, Enter. That should take you to the next page and after than you should find the other keystrokes are back to their defaults. Works for me, anyway!

I believe I reported it to both Microsoft and FreedomScientific, but it has been around a long time.

So, you either have to restart word after a search, or settle for using page-up and page-down by themselves to move one screen at a time.

Not great choices.

The previous and next occurrence refers to your last find command.

I believe this is a Word issue.

If I start fresh with a session using Word 2016, control-page up and down behave correctly.

If I then search for a word, from that point on, they attempt to repeat the search, which is not helpful.

My question is:

Whilst in word,

When I do a control page up or control page down,

Instead of moving forwards and backwards through pages of a document,

It says something like “previous and next occurrence” and puts me in some dialogue box?



Is jaws doing this?



Please advise further.
