Hi, yes, it's a temporary change, as some other jaws settings, this directly affects the application you're working on. It's useful for web browsers or Microsoft word. I finally carried out what I wanted and I finally have different voices reading quoted text and text with specific attribute.

 

Best,

The Speech and sound scheme was a feature that was introduced in 2003 in Jaws 5.0. It is like a virtual proofreader. You can Press Insert+Ault+S to bring up the list of Speech and Sound options. and customize how ever the way you want it to read your screen. 

Thanks for asking.

In Word 2016 from the Office 365 subscription, when I hit f7 the first thing that pops up is a button that says Editor overview, review all results and it gives a number so I know how many errors there are.

Then, if I hit spacebar on that button, the first error is shown.

If I tab, I still hear the suggestions but instead of being in a list that I would arrow through I can tab to each one.  After all the suggestions there is the usual ignore once, ignore all, and add to dictionary.

 

HTH,

I was  interested in this but when I followed the link and found the pricing page I found different information which seems to indicate that there has been no price reduction or possibly that the price reduction has expired.

I copy the relevant bit from the webpage as of a couple of minutes  ago.

• Leasey Total Package: £75 (approximately 100 American Dollars), includes menus and help spoken by Leasey together with full Getting Started DAISY Talking

Book for computer beginners.

• LeaseyAdvanced, £50 (approximately 66 American Dollars). Contains access to all of Leasey’s tools, utilities and services, but Leasey will not speak

using her own voice. The DAISY Getting Started guide is also not part of this package.

Hello. I sent the following message to the mailing list for the Philadelphia Computer Users Group for the Blind and Visually Impaired, which I moderate, and wanted to send it here, as well.

 

From now until December 27 Hartgen Consultancy is offering Leasey Total for 50 British pounds, which is around $67 U.S. dollars. It is very difficult to concisely summarize what this program does as it's a Swiss army knife filled with tons of tools and utilities. Leasey Total comes with two modules, Leasey Basic and Leasey Advanced.

Leasey Basic is for users who might consider themselves to be extreme novices, very new to computers or perhaps users who just want a systematic, predictable way of accessing the main programs on their computer. Instead of dealing with the Windows start menu or the desktop there is a dedicated menu known as the Leasey menu, which is read by a human voice. This menu includes items such as Surf the Internet, Write a Document or Letter, Check Your Email, Listen to the Radio, etc. It also offers context sensitive help, using the same human speech which is offered in the menus. Leasey Basic might also be helpful for users with cognitive difficulties. It also comes with a training tutorial covering the basic features and is honestly one of the best training tutorials I have heard in quite some time.

 

Leasey Advanced dispenses with the simplified menus and returns your computer to its normal state with the start menu and desktop. It offers a ton of additional features. Features that I personally like are:

Leasey Texts. This is a bit like the text expansion feature found in Word except that you can use it globally. You can create a list of shortcuts which can type in a pre-written piece of text, such as a shopping list, signature to a letter, etc. You can also assign an abbreviation to a Leasey text, such as typing the letters sig to type a signature.

Leasey clips allow you to save up to twelve pieces of text to areas not unlike the clipboard. Each clip can be recalled, pasted anywhere and they are available even with a computer restart.

Leasey Clock includes an alarm, countdown timer, stopwatch and even some very nice Westminster chimes.

Leasey Radio offers a built-in radio tuner, available anywhere.

It offers so much more but those are just a few of its features. Leasey Central offers far more detailed information about this software.

I know I've mentioned this program quite a bit in the past year. For the record I am not affiliated with Hartgen Consultancy. Brian Hartgen and I are nothing more than professionals in this industry. We have never met, never worked with one another and I get absolutely no commission from any sales which my messages might generate. I just feel that he's made some positive and unique contributions in this space which are very beneficial to users of JAWS and I just want to let everyone know about what he offers.

hello everyone,

well this is driving me absolutely insane, at first I thought it was not going to be any difficult, so I ventured myself into the settings. After a while I noticed that I needed to read some instructions, so I googled and found some web sites, including freedom scientific web site where I could find what I was looking for. However, whether I thoroughly follow instructions or I try to use a bit of common sense and logic I just cannot make this speech and sound scheme feature work for me.

all I want to do is having jaws playing a sound every time it finds an attribute on a word.

Since I have tried it for a while, I would really appreciate if someone explains it for me as if I were a  seven year old kid lol

I'm using jaws 2020 and Microsoft office 2019, thanks in advance for any help.

Leasey Basic is for users who might consider themselves to be extreme novices, very new to computers or perhaps users who just want a systematic, predictable way of accessing the main programs on their computer. Instead of dealing with the Windows start menu or the desktop there is a dedicated menu known as the Leasey menu, which is read by a human voice. This menu includes items such as Surf the Internet, Write a Document or Letter, Check Your Email, Listen to the Radio, etc. It also offers context sensitive help, using the same human speech which is offered in the menus. Leasey Basic might also be helpful for users with cognitive difficulties. It also comes with a training tutorial covering the basic features and is honestly one of the best training tutorials I have heard in quite some time.


Leasey Advanced dispenses with the simplified menus and returns your computer to its normal state with the start menu and desktop. It offers a ton of additional features. Features that I personally like are:

Leasey Texts. This is a bit like the text expansion feature found in Word except that you can use it globally. You can create a list of shortcuts which can type in a pre-written piece of text, such as a shopping list, signature to a letter, etc. You can also assign an abbreviation to a Leasey text, such as typing the letters sig to type a signature.

Leasey clips allow you to save up to twelve pieces of text to areas not unlike the clipboard. Each clip can be recalled, pasted anywhere and they are available even with a computer restart.

Leasey Clock includes an alarm, countdown timer, stopwatch and even some very nice Westminster chimes.

Leasey Radio offers a built-in radio tuner, available anywhere.

It offers so much more but those are just a few of its features. Leasey Central offers far more detailed information about this software.

I know I've mentioned this program quite a bit in the past year. For the record I am not affiliated with Hartgen Consultancy. Brian Hartgen and I are nothing more than professionals in this industry. We have never met, never worked with one another and I get absolutely no commission from any sales which my messages might generate. I just feel that he's made some positive and unique contributions in this space which are very beneficial to users of JAWS and I just want to let everyone know about what he offers.

I have also upgraded to the 2019 latest release and now, my Windows Live Mail sais this before every message each time I Up or Down Arrow through my inbox messages.
“Windows Live Mail Message List View”
It used to just read me the sender and the topic.
 
Love in Christ

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

I’m using JAWS 2019 with Outlook 365 with Vocalizer Nathan.  I have noticed for a while a curious thing when arrowing through my inbox.  Wondering if others see this behavior.  I’m pasting below the speech history for one of the email messages where I see the behavior.  It’s on the same line that tells me the message has been flagged with a reminder.  See how it says “ments” at the end of the line?  This only happens on messages flagged for follow-up that also contain an attachment.   Can others replicate this and have any ideas?

Robin,

 

Just one thought. It’s sounds like the end of “documents” cut short.
