Help! Announcements I can't stop


Marilyn Bland <tinkerbelltx@...>
 

Hello all,

Please help - I was working in my document and I'm not sure which keys I pressed, but now after each word JAWS speaks, I hear "space marker" word "space marker" word "new line" word etc

By this I mean that after each word JAWS speaks, it indicates audibly that there is a space, as well as indicating when it is gon to a new line.

I have no idea how I turned this on, and equally, no idea how to turn it off again. I am working on a document I need to finish urgently, but cannot work properly with this feature on.

Thank you in advance for any help with this - what is the feature called, and how can I turn it on and off - I realize it can be valuable, but just not now.

Shirley,

I suspect something broke in Jaws,. If you have already tried to restart your computer and it’s continuing to behave this way, you may have to repair your Jaws installation.

If you have the installer for Jaws, simply run this file, and you will be able to repair Jaws in the resulting wizard.
I hope this helps.

Hi all,

Problem: This afternoon I tried using my personal banking spread sheet which I created on Excel. I got the strangest message saying something about the Braille drive cannot be opened because Freedom Scientific does not recognize its authenticity. I don’t use Braille so closed out and tried again. This time I got a message that the program (meaning Excel) is not responding and must be closed. Apparently, I cannot use it. Every time I open it, I get the same message. Need suggestions!
Help!

You turned a setting in Word that shows graphics to represent spaces and line feeds. I believe control-* turns it on and off. It is found on the ribbon under formatting and paragraphs.

I hope that helps.

Marilyn, for Word 2010 (or you can at least get an idea where to go if
you're not using 2010):

press alt, then f for the file ribbon, then t for the options dialog.
type d or arrow to select the display category and press tab until you
get to the show these formatting marks on the screen section.
make sure the following are unchecked (press the spacebar to check or
uncheck and continue to tab to the next setting):

Tab characters check box
Spaces check box
Paragraph marks check box
Show all formatting marks check box

the last one, the all checkbox, is important to uncheck.
keep pressing tab to and spacebar on the ok button.

now JAWS shouldn't be announcing these marks any longer.

Hi, Marilyn. If you haven't tried to correct the announcement problem yet, try the following keystroke. It's a toggle, meaning that, if you press it once, you turn the announcements off, and if pressed again, the announcements will be turned on again.

Try:

CONTROL plus SHIFT plus 8. This is not the number eight key on the num pad, but the number 8 key above the letter I.

I tried this, but then I got no speech at all and nothing happened. I pressed escape, and then speech was back, but so were the announcements. Perhaps I was doing something wrong. Thanks, though.

Shirley,

I suspect something broke in Jaws,. If you have already tried to restart your computer and it’s continuing to behave this way, you may have to repair your Jaws installation.

If you have the installer for Jaws, simply run this file, and you will be able to repair Jaws in the resulting wizard.
I hope this helps.

Hi all,

Problem: This afternoon I tried using my personal banking spread sheet which I created on Excel. I got the strangest message saying something about the Braille drive cannot be opened because Freedom Scientific does not recognize its authenticity. I don’t use Braille so closed out and tried again. This time I got a message that the program (meaning Excel) is not responding and must be closed. Apparently, I cannot use it. Every time I open it, I get the same message. Need suggestions!
Help!

Mario,

I followed your steps, but all your "uncheck" items were unchecked. There was another one you did not list - object anchors - and this one was checked, so I unchecked it. This seems to have solved the problem. I am nervous about saying it is fixed, but it seems that way. If not, I'll be back to say so. Otherwise, thanks so much for your help.


Thanks to the many others who also gave solutions. I really appreciate it.

Marilyn, for Word 2010 (or you can at least get an idea where to go if you're not using 2010):

press alt, then f for the file ribbon, then t for the options dialog.
type d or arrow to select the display category and press tab until you get to the show these formatting marks on the screen section.
make sure the following are unchecked (press the spacebar to check or uncheck and continue to tab to the next setting):

Tab characters check box
Spaces check box
Paragraph marks check box
Show all formatting marks check box

the last one, the all checkbox, is important to uncheck.
keep pressing tab to and spacebar on the ok button.

now JAWS shouldn't be announcing these marks any longer.

Hello all,

Please help - I was working in my document and I'm not sure which keys I pressed, but now after each word JAWS speaks, I hear "space marker" word "space marker" word "new line" word etc

By this I mean that after each word JAWS speaks, it indicates audibly that there is a space, as well as indicating when it is gon to a new line.

I have no idea how I turned this on, and equally, no idea how to turn it off again. I am working on a document I need to finish urgently, but cannot work properly with this feature on.

Thank you in advance for any help with this - what is the feature called, and how can I turn it on and off - I realize it can be valuable, but just not now.

Hi Marilyn,
 
The key combination to toggle this on and off is control shift numrow 8.  See if invoking this keystroke helps.
 
The long way to do it is to go to tools, options and on the view page tab like crazy until you get to, All, & uncheck it, tab to OK, & press enter to save / close.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Shirley,

I suspect something broke in Jaws,. If you have already tried to restart
your computer and it’s continuing to behave this way, you may have to
repair your Jaws installation.

If you have the installer for Jaws, simply run this file, and you will be
able to repair Jaws in the resulting wizard.
I hope this helps.

Hi all,

Problem: This afternoon I tried using my personal banking spread sheet
which I created on Excel. I got the strangest message saying something
about the Braille drive cannot be opened because Freedom Scientific does
not recognize its authenticity. I don’t use Braille so closed out and tried
again. This time I got a message that the program (meaning Excel) is not
responding and must be closed. Apparently, I cannot use it. Every time I
open it, I get the same message. Need suggestions!
Help!

Now go to display, and press tab several times until you hear " Show all formatting marks", and make sure that this choice is unchecked.
After that, press Ok button, and your problem should be solved.

I am actually having this same issue, and it just started happening all of a sudden. I keep going into quick settings and turning off the announce paragraphs and lines, but it continually turns itself back on. I don't see anything about this in the word settings though.

Marilyn:

You turned a setting in Word that shows graphics to represent spaces and line feeds. I believe control-* turns it on and off. It is found on the ribbon under formatting and paragraphs.

I hope that helps.

Hello all,

Please help - I was working in my document and I'm not sure which keys I pressed, but now after each word JAWS speaks, I hear "space marker" word "space marker" word "new line" word etc

By this I mean that after each word JAWS speaks, it indicates audibly that there is a space, as well as indicating when it is gon to a new line.

I have no idea how I turned this on, and equally, no idea how to turn it off again. I am working on a document I need to finish urgently, but cannot work properly with this feature on.

Thank you in advance for any help with this - what is the feature called, and how can I turn it on and off - I realize it can be valuable, but just not now.
