moderated How to stop JAWS from saying "normal" after I pressed JAWSKey+tab?

This may be an app specific setting, like for MS Word.  And, that app specific setting can likewise be particular to one version of JAWS but not another, like in your situation.  Check your app settings for whatever app is causing this problem, such as those for MS word.  There, a specific setting does exist to speak document format conditions.  That MS Word setting may carry into other MS Office apps as well, such as Outlook, and vis-a-versa.

Hi,

 

I tried all speech schemes and nothing going. I am using the classic right now and it says “normal” on every line. Rebooting does nothing either. As previously mentioned, its only in JAWS 2020 it was ok in JAWS 2019 so I really think it’s a bug in dealing with Office 365

This could be  your speech scheme. Press jaws+alt+S to open the "Select a scheme" dialog. If your scheme name has the word "attributes" in it, that would be the reason you are hearing this. If you want JAWS to tell you Bold and Italic, but not normal, I believe this is obtainable.


 

Hi Ron,

 

I may have missed the beginning of this thread, but I use Office 365 and I would say I use Jaws 2020 Beta 95% of the time now and I have no such issue.

My JAWS version is 2019, latest build.  It seems, so far, that re-booting has fixed this problem.

Hi Richard,

 

What version of Jaws?  Have you tried rebooting?

Hi!

 

I experimented with pressing JAWSKey+Tab.  Now, JAWS says “normal” all the time.  How do I undo or stop this?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi,

 

I have the same problem in the 2020 beta latest update but it goes away when I go back to my JAWS 2019. It happens in Office 365 on every line in Word as I arrow down. What a pain.

I think it’s a bug and there is nothing we can do until it is fixed
