Sometimes while reading a web page or a PDF document, JAWS will start speaking another language. How can I stop this behavior?

This means that there are accents or it may be switching to another language. Try stopping Jaws and arrowing, manually, read past the spot.

Hope this helps?

Hi,

You have detect languages on, which is normal behavior.

Open the Jaws setting center with insert+6 on the numbers row.

Press control+shift+d for the default settings, or just leave it on your web settings.

Type Language in the edit field and arrow down to Detect Language On, and hit the space bar to turn it off and hit enter.

 

You should be good to go.

Ralph's Observation:  It is a mistake to allow any mechanical object<>to realize that you are in a hurry.

While in your browser of choice open Jaws Quick settings, Insert + V, and type, detect, into the search field.
 
Wait for a second or 3 for the list to populate and the checkbox / option you want is, Language detect change, if this is checked uncheck it with the spacebar.
 
Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.
 
You can also turn this feature off in Settings Center or Settings Center default all applications by typing, detect, in the search field.  But, the feature will be called, Detect language, in the Settings Center.
 
Use, Settings Center while in an individual application or Quick Settings.
 
Use Settings Center default all applications to turn it off in all applications / programs.
 
To access Settings Center press, Insert + 6, on the number row.
 
To access, Settings Center default all applications, press, Insert + 6, then press, control, shift + D.
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
