Hi, Mario. Patrick may not need to tether the cursors to know where he is in a cell, but unless he has the keystrokes he is seeking, he won't learn that this is the wrong solution and move toward finding a better method for accomplishing his task. This is why I posted the keystrokes he is seeking.

I agree with Sieghard. there should be no reason to tether the JAWS
cursor to the PC cursor just to hear where you are in the spreadsheet.

plus the PC cursor should be the cursor mode when starting many, if not
all, programs.

Tether JAWS to PC CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD MINUS

Laptop Keyboard Layout

Tether JAWS to PC CTRL+CAPSLOCK+LEFT BRACKET

You can always quickly check what cell you are in with Jaws Key+C.
Not sure why the Jaws cursor would help in locating what cell you are

Re: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

Richard Turner
 

Hi Mario,
I only have Jaws 2018 and thanks to your info, I found them in:
"C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS"

I don't know that I'll ever do anything with this, but it is fun to know about. Someone at Freedom Scientific must have been a Victor Borge fan.

For those who do not know that name, he was an excellent pianist, but also a very funny comedian who had a great routine about phonetic punctuation.

You can check it out on YouTube:

Re: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

Mario
 

as long as the paragraph break produces a character that JAWS can
detect, which I'm assuming is the same as a paragraph symbol (pilcro)?

locate the character for which you want a sound for, press insert+d to
launch the pronounciation dictionary manager, press spacebar to activate
the add button, tab to and spacebar on the browse buttonn. the default
folder is set to, as far as I know, to only

C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\16.0\Settings\enu\Sounds\

so, you can either copy the wav files you want to use to the above
sounds folder or import them into the sounds folder from within the
browse dialog, from which you can choose a wav file. as far as I can
see, there isn't a way to navigate to a different folder than the sounds
folder. if you know how, do post back to explain how.

the rest of the steps are self explanatory.

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?

Thanks,
Richard

Hello Tony,
Dictionary Manager may suit your needs.
Place cursor on the offending punctuation mark.
Press insert D
Follow the instructions, and press alt F4 to implement the changes.
Cheers

Subject: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

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?


Thanks

Tony

Laura, is there a reason why you haven't upgraded to Adobe's Reader DC?

Subject: jaws crashing when reading tables in Adobe Reader

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

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.

I’m using JAWS version 18 and trying to copy info from word document and
paste into gmail email. However, it will not paste. Is this a JAWS issue
or browser issue? I’m using internet browser. When I paste the info, it
enters symbols but says something about scripts.
Also, is there a typing tutor built into JAWS?
Thank you in advance for your help.
