moderated JAWS bug: wrong tip for one option in settings Center

Arkadiusz Świętnicki
 

Nothing really serious, but here it is:

Detect keyboard language has a label that says

Use the options in this group to control overall speech behavior.

That is not quite correct, is it?

If you arrow to general> text processing, you will hear that same description about overall behavior. Looks like someone mislabeled detect keyboard language. The error exists as far back as JFW 18, for what it's worth.

And reporting this to,  support@..., is worth doing.

Here's what the dialogue should read:
 
This check box allows you to enable or disable automatic language detection. If you select this check box, JAWS detects changes in languages within documents which support language tags and then reads using the appropriate synthesizer voice for that language.
For example, if JAWS finds Spanish text on a Web page, that text is spoken using a Spanish voice. This detection only affects those synthesizers,
such as Eloquence or Vocalizer Expressive, that support multiple languages.
If you clear this check box, JAWS does not change the voice of the synthesizer when reading text written in another language.
By default, this option is checked in all applications except Microsoft Outlook.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

But, good news!  Due to the hording of toilet paper the LA Times is temporarily changing it's name to:  The Daily Wipe!

from the Speech History, the following is what JAWS says about my default configuration:

Text Processing
General

Detect Languages checked
This check box allows you to enable or disable automatic language detection. If you select this check box, JAWS detects changes in languages within
documents which support language tags and then reads using the appropriate synthesizer voice for that language.
For example, if JAWS finds Spanish text on a Web page, that text is spoken using a Spanish voice. This detection only affects those synthesizers,
such as Eloquence or Vocalizer Expressive, that support multiple languages.
If you clear this check box, JAWS does not change the voice of the synthesizer when reading text written in another language.
By default, this option is checked in all applications except Microsoft Outlook.

Detect Keyboard Language checked
Use the options in this group to control overall speech behavior.

so the description for Detect Keyboard Language should be the same for Detect Languages? the original question was about the label for Detect keyboard language being correct...

so, is it correct? and if not, what should it be and is there a way to correct (edit) the description?

This is wrong!  I accidentally copied the wrong dialogue box.
