I started with JAWS 18 back on May 15, 2017 when Windoe-Eyes was discontinued. Since I had the latest version of Window-Eyes, this was a free update for me. Now I am upd to JAWS 2019.

Stanley, thanks for reminding me of the dark day in May when Window-Eyes was put to rest.
I too started with Jaws then, and had two SMAs left with Window-Eyes which were transferred to Jaws. So, I just used my last one for 2019.

Hi Gudrun,
 
Okay I see what you're trying to do, finally!  LOL  Sorry for not catching it earlier.  About the only thing I can think of that you could have done to assigned a sound to be played for the apostrophe is to have it assigned in the Jaws dictionary or the Jaws default dictionary.  Look in both dictionaries and I bet you find it there.  Also what version of Jaws are you running?
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

No, that doesn't do it. It's not the level of punctuation that is in
question, but the fact that I managed to set it so that the pressing
apostrophe  resulted in a sound, not the echoing of the character. I'm
trying to undo that change, for there are times when I do need to be very
particular for proofreading purposes.
Also, if I go over a word character by character, JAWS says "blank" over the
apostrophe.

Sorry if I didn't explain very well. Thanks anyway.

Hi Gudrun,
 
Try changing your echo settings by pressing, Jaws key + 2.  Hold down the
Jaws key and tap the number 2 key above the main keyboard until you get to,
Characters, and stop / let up on the keys and you will hear all typed
characters.  Here are the options as you tap the number 2 key, Words, Both
Characters & Words, None & Characters.

Change your punctuation level setting to either Most or All.  You can do

How do I reset JAWS so that my apostrophe gets pronounced as I type? I tried
to have it be a sound, but I found that less useful. I don't mind the sound
as I read text, but I prefer to hear it spoken as "apostrophe" as I type.
I've tried to reset it, but I can't seem to find the right trick.

 

Thanks.

You get so many keys to put JAWS on multiple devices.

One thing you can do with the yearly version, is that you can take the key off of one machine you are not using, and transfer that key to another computer.

You can do all of this on the portal!

I think that’s available only in the US though. And also, please tell me you can still licence JAWS for multiple devices with this plan, or that’d be reason alone to keep the SMA.

You do not need an SMA anymore. you could subscribe to jaws for $90 per year, $270 for 3 years, and $450 for 5 years of jaws and move your licenses between any 3 computers, authorise and dee-authorise computers all on your own with the new license platform found in the freedom scientific e-store.

Hello,

 

I’m using Windows10 and Outlook 2016. For some reason any meeting that is on the calendar or just added, the subject doesn’t show up. It use to and I’m wondering if I made some change that eliminated the subject to show up. For emails I set it up to have the subject appear first. I don’t think would affect what is on the calendar. Any thoughts of what I could do to correct the problem?

 

Cheers,

 

Kevin
