I saw a post explaining how to say numbers a digit at a time, and I thought it was great but now when I am playing in the Quinten C playroom.  How do I switch it back?

 

Thanks

To change how JAWS speaks numbers do the following.

  1. Make sure that you’re on the Web site or in the program where you want to make this change.
  2. Press insert+6 to open the Settings Center. This is the 6 on the row of numbers and not the 6 on the number pad.
  3. Type the word “number” without the quotes.
  4. Arrow down to the item labeled “number processing” but do not press enter at this point.
  5. Press the space bar to cycle through the various options, such as “digits” “full numbers”, etc.
  6. When you have moved to the setting that you want just press the enter key twice. The dialog will be closed and your settings will be saved.

Thanks.  I had to work with it but it is back to where I like it.  If I had to choose from the fractions being said incorrectly, or the numbers being said digit by digit when I am in R S Games or Quinten C Playroom, I’d rather put up with the miss stating the fractions.  Thanks once again.

Doesn't JAWS have something that is the functional equivalent of what NVDA calls a Configuration Profile, where you can tweak settings and then have that profile become active only when you have focus on a specific application window and not elsewhere?

Yes, it's called the Settings Center and it's accessed by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row while in a specific application.  This will make settings changes for only the application you're running when opening the Settings Center.
 
If the person wanted the changes to be for all programs they would press, control, shift + D, to open the Settings Center default all applications, after invoking the, Insert + 6, keystroke.
 
The Settings Center can also be accessed by pressing, Insert + F2, to open the, JAWS Manager, then navigating to, Settings Center, and pressing enter.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Mike,

So, once you've used INSERT + 6 to create application-specific settings, how are those managed going forward?  And by that I mean particularly how would you edit those and, just as importantly, how would you delete them entirely just for one application.

I'd imagine after doing the tweaks these have to be saved under some name, and are known as some thing (e.g., profile, app specific settings, etc.)

I have not played with JAWS in a while and never had occasion to deal with this specific aspect since most of my clients were entirely new to JAWS and teaching the basics of day-to-day use took precedence over all else.

You could go back into the Settings Center while you have the same application running and change them back to what they were before, if you remember them.
 
Or, if you go into the ENU folder of the Jaws version you're running, file path below:
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2021\Settings\enu
and look for the program you changed the settings of, i.e Word, you would look for the, Word.JCF file.  If you delete this file this will put Word back to it's default JAWS settings in the Settings Center.
 
Any time you modify an application it creates a, JCF, file in the ENU folder of the particular JAWS version you're running at the time of the settings change, and any other changes that you make down the road are reflected in this same JCF file.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Brian, Mike, and anyone else, there are also voice profiles which consists of settings for the synthesizer, language, voice, and other speech items that define how JAWS speaks.
