Hi,

Somehow, under Display, the Show All Format marks was checked. I unchecked this, and everything shut up nicely.

Oh, you just saved my sanity! Thank you! Now if I could only figure out how that got accidentally checked.

Hi Mario,

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space
for the text that annoys you.

For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS
default dictionary:
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to ""

When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up
into smaller chunks.

The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being
spoken so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary
Manager.

Hope this helps,

Ben

Re: turning off announcement of...

If you are talking about the message about pressing control, alt, delete to log on, yes it is shown on the screen.
When I lock my home computer with Windows-Key plus l, when I hit a key, the password field pops up.
At work, they have it set that you have to press control-alt-delete to log on and the message is shown as well as spoken.
If he used a password, someone knowing the keys to press wouldn't help them unless they also know his password.

Re: Notepad++ and Jaws

Richard Turner
 

I think you are right about the verbosity setting.

And, strangely enough, Jaws stopped speaking the status bar after each letter and I did nothing to change any settings.

Must have been gremlins.

 

I will say that when I check the status line with insert+page-down, it reads very confusingly.

I wrote two words which took 10 characters and when I checked the status line manually it said:

Normal text file length : 10 lines : 1 Ln : 1 Col : 11 Sel : 0 | 0 Windows (CR LF) UTF-8 INS

If you ignore the words “text fie length”  it makes sense.

I think I might try the trick of doing a dictionary entry that blanks out those words.

Otherwise, this seems pretty good for editing the html files I have already created, which is what I do mostly now.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Re: need help unmuting volume

ratshtron
 

this is true, but a shortcut must be created for
the program and then you need to change the last
parameter to a 0 to unmute the sound. as I
mentioned earlier, you can assign a keystroke to
the shortcut so you can activate the shortcut on
the fly. the last parameter works this way, 1
mutes, 2 makes the shortcut a toggle, and 0
unmutes the sound. so the target field has to be
edited to look like this once the program is
placed in the c:\windows\system32 folder

c:\windows\system32\nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 0

you can then move the shortcut to the startup folder.

Hi Mario,

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space for the text that annoys you.

For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS default dictionary:
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to " "

When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up into smaller chunks.

The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being spoken so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary Manager.

Hope this helps,

Re: turning off announcement of...

Mario
 

he just tried it but it didn't work. he made the entry in the default
dictionary and even unloaded/reloaded JAWS, and after the keyboard is
locked, the announcement of what to press is still spoken.

how would he split up the announcement as you specified? give an example
using this announcement he doesn't want.

Hi Mario,

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space
for the text that annoys you.

For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS
default dictionary:
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to
" "

When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up
into smaller chunks.

The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being
spoken so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary
Manager.

Hope this helps,

Ben

or you can put it in your startup group so every time your computer re-boots it will unmute the sound.

Hi,

Alternatively this program can allow you to just press enter on a file and have all volume unmuted.

c:\windows\system32\nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 2

the last perameter of 2 is a toggle that will mute and unmute every other time you execute the shortcut. you can assign a keystroke to the short by right clicking on the shortcut created and tab to the shortcut key and assign one. I assigned shift plus alt plus v. hope this is clear enough and if someone else can explain it better please do so.


now the link to the web page to download the program. O' it is a free utility.

Hey guys,

OK, just had a major problem.  I have no idea how i did it.
Fortunately someone was able to help me out of it, but i muted my
system volume.  Curious, when this happens, what is the keystroke to
hit with the latest jaws to unmute everything?

Thanks,
Jed
