Moderated Displaying fractions
Ann Byrne
windows 10; Microsoft Edge; JAWS2023
My student is working with a multiple choice math test, where some of the answers are fractions. JAWS has read these numbers as 'x', not numbers.. I have looked at them with NVDA, which says 'x'; but Narrator reads them with numbers, such as 1 16without the slash. going back to JAWS, suddenly it read the fractions correctly. First it said "1 16"; down arrow said "1/16. math content". When I left the page and returned to it, the fractions read as 'x'. How did I make the stinkin' change? How can I make JAWS read the fractions correctly on my student's computer???

I've never had fractions verbalized as "X." However, as I expect you've figured out, you could get past the date conversion by unchecking the date processing checkboxes. I just typed "date" into the JAWS settings center and it came up. Original Message

I've only encountered jaws saying "x" with formatted math content and

in that case it also verbalizes "math content" in addition to the "x". On 2/22/23, K0LNY <glenn@...> wrote:

Hi Ann,
You may have answered your own
question.
Activate Narrator, then switch back to Jaws
and see if that's the fix.

Could the math content possibly be math? ML? That would read correctly with Jaws, I think.
