The memory is 2000 entries, but I only have 1100. Besides, that doesn't explain why JAWS has no problem adding entries to a dictionary containing the same entries, but using a different filename.

The skim reading tool will locate/read colors, summarizing the areas where they are used. There is material on using the skim reading tool in the JAWS training documents under help.

Alternatively as was suggested already, sound scheme would work. The skim reading tool would be more effective, though.

Good luck!

It would be represented as schwa. In other words, rather than codes, the JAWS dictionary relies on phonemes. So the onomatopoeic way you spelled that sound is the way JAWS would process it.

I hope I’ve correctly understood your question.

Annabelle,

 

You ask two separate questions. In the first, you inquire about the parameters, or controls, we can use in the JAWS dictionary to tell JAWS where to place emphasis. To my knowledge, Vispero has not provided JAWS users with such tools. Surely they have them, considering how well JAWS pronounces many words that go against convention, but we don’t have access to them. There’s a workaround that I’ll get to.

 

Your second question refers to the problem of a spelling that is pronounced differently in different contexts. Again, Vispero must have a way of making this happen, considering how JAWS handles a word like “read,” but they haven’t shared it with us. At any rate, to my knowledge they haven’t.

 

The workaround is typically the spacebar and the use of uppercase letters in the “replacement word” field. Taking your “progress” example, if you want the second syllable emphasized, either put a space before the “g” or capitalize that “G.” In general, the JAWS dictionary involves a degree of trial and error enhanced by experience. For example, I’ve found that doubling the consonant at the beginning of some words can bring about a desired effect, but not always.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Out of curiosity, does anybody know if there's a parameter you can enter within Dictionary Manager, or somewhere within JAWS, to denote the accurate pronunciation of stressed versus unstressed syllables in a given word? I know in the Microsoft SAPI's speech markup language, there are parameters for typing pronunciations of Primary Stress syllables (1) and Secondary Stress syllables (2), as well as syllabic markers (-), and that each letter or letter combination is separated by a space. For example, if there are two pronunciations of a word, like "Progress". "p r ax - g r eh s 1" or "p r aa 1 - g r eh s". How would I simulate this with JAWS?

Hi all. Ever since 2020 beta 1, I have been unable to add new entries to Default.jdf, although I can add new entries to another dictionary with the default entries copied into it. Vispero tech support claims that they cannot duplicate this problem. But there's nothing so special about both my machines' configurations that would preclude saving dictionary entries, especially since entries can be saved to another file. The problem is that if I want those entries to apply globally, I must use Default.jdf. Is this happening to anyone else?

Glenn / Lenny
 

One example of doing this is when I labeled the graphic symbols which will show up as numbered graphics, in Outlook Express, like graphic 520 would be unred message.
But if I wrote it like unread message, , Jaws says:
un reed message.
So I spell read in the graphic label as unred, like the color.
The same can be done in dictionary manager.
But Jaws has no way of knowing when to say a word correctly as far as I know, like when we want the word live to sound like liv.
Or if we want liv to sound like lyve.

the USB headset is considered to be a sound device, and once it is
connected to the computer, JAWS will probably switch to speaking thru
it. to go back to have JAWS speaking thru the speakers:

insert+j to gain focus to the JAWS window.
go to the utilities menu and then the sound card sub menu. once open,
enter on the appropriate soundcard designated as the Windows default
sound device.

you need two audio devices to accomplish this.
does the headset connect via USB  or does it plug into 1/8" audio ports?
if by USB, you can have JAWS speak thru the default device in Windows,
which is usually the speakers, and use the headset for something else.
if the headset plugs into 1/8" audio ports, what you want to do isn't
possible.

Not that it isn’t an option, but 1, this info is indeed accessible to Jaws users. It’s just a question on how to know to access it and 2, from the sounds of it, it seems that it’s not a one time deal, but rather an ongoing situation that will keep presenting itself. I.E. making knowing how to properly access highlighted text with Jaws the more practical solution. I’m sure for a one time circumstance, AIRA can be very helpful, but for something like this…? Doubt it.

Come on. How is this really practical ?

There are schemes in Jaws that allow for a more granular review of document and screen reading. Play with the different sound schemes in Jaws to see if any of those may help. The vast majority of us just stick with the classic scheme we learned Jaws with, but there are schemes that can tell attributes, fonts, colors and so on. These are very helpful for proof reading and reviewing documents that indeed, have highlights or different colorings etc where it is important to be aware of such markings. You can also create your own schemes.

Try using the color attribute sound scheme. To get there press jaws key alt and s, like sam.

Arrow to color, or just press c. This should let you read the text, and when the color changes, it will tell you.

 

I hope this helps.

There is a way to search attributes for a particular background color, and if and when I find it again, I will let you know.

you need two audio devices to accomplish this.
does the headset connect via USB or does it plug into 1/8" audio ports?
if by USB, you can have JAWS speak thru the default device in Windows,
which is usually the speakers, and use the headset for something else.
if the headset plugs into 1/8" audio ports, what you want to do isn't
possible.

Hello group:

I would like to use a Logitech headset/mic for one particular
application, and hear Jaws through my pc's speakers for everything
else. Can this be done, and if yes, how do I do it?

Best regards,

What application are you talking about and do you
use Windows 10 or are still on Windows 7.
In Windows 10 you can select sound devices by application in Settings > System > Sounds, tab to "Advanced sound options, App volume and device preferences", activate the link and then tab until you hear "Input list box, system sounds". Here you can arrow down and you should be able to find your application.
Of course in quite a few applications such as Skype you can simply select which sound device you want to use in the app.

Regards,
Sieghard

If you have your own business, use the Aira business option to get help from an agent. If you use JAWS, use the JAWS option to help you with inaccessible JAWS feature. Or, use a quick five minute Aira call to find the highlighted items.

Subject: Identifying highlighted text on a web site

 

Hello:

I received a  Email with a link to a policy from one of my suppliers.

When I entered  on the link, it opened in Chrome, which is my default browser.

Within this document, there are price lists and the Email states that the items that are either new or changed are highlighted in yellow.

I need to identify these items so I can compare them to our selling price.

I tried going through each line of the item lists and using JAWS key plus 5, but all said black on black.

Unfortunately I cannot provide the web site to you because the information is confidential.

Any ideas on how I may be able to identify these highlighted items?

Any assistance would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

moderated Re: There has been no update to reported issues regarding pronunciation dictionary not saving new entries

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. Ever since 2020 beta 1, I have been unable to add new entries to Default.jdf, although I can add new entries to another dictionary with the default entries copied into it. Vispero tech support claims that they cannot duplicate this problem. But there's nothing so special about both my machines' configurations that would preclude saving dictionary entries, especially since entries can be saved to another file. The problem is that if I want those entries to apply globally, I must use Default.jdf. Is this happening to anyone else?
