Keyboard arrow Echo in JAWS 19

Barbara
 

Hi Everyone,

I installed JAWS 19 on a Windows 7 computer and a Windows 10 laptop. I have not tested this on the laptop yet, but on the Windows 7 computer, I get an echo using the arrow keys.

Example. I use the right arrow and it lands on the letter b. After a few seconds I hear bravo. This is a minor thing, but I would like to turn that off. Any ideas how?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Barbara

I'm also on the JFWLite list, which doesn't have many people.

Hi Barbara,
 
It's called phonetic announcement and here's how to turn it off:
1. Open the Settings Center with, Insert + 6, on the number row then press, control, shift + D, to open default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, Text Processing closed, right arrow to open, down arrow to, General closed, right arrow to open, down arrow to, Phonetic Announcement, and rightarrow to open.
3. With Phonetic Announcement open you have 2 choices so, up or down arrow to, When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically never, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
Take care.  Go Rams!

I type out everything I want to remember. That way instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it was, I spend the time looking for where I saved it!

Hi, Barbara. I believe it is JAWS 2019 you installed. To turn off Phonetic announcements,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row, just above the letter Y.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default JAWS configuration.
3. Type the following letters with no spaces between them:

p h o

4. Arrow down through the search results looking for the words

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically

5. Tap the space bar until you hear the word Never.
6. TAB to the OK button, and press ENTER.

Now, as you arrow through a document and pause, you will no longer hear the phonetic announcements.
