moderated Phonetic Spelling of Extension In Attached File


Margaret Thomas
 

Good Afternoon:

I have a bad hearing problem and received an attachment with an unfamiliar extension when I was expecting something like .DOCX or .PDF. I search for what I thought I heard and found out there really was such an extension as .ODT and a bit about it, and I was able to open the file. However, pressing say line 3 times that I thought would give me the phonetic spelling of the letters, like Delta for d, gulf for g, only spelled the letters. In JAWS 2021 (desktop layout), what would the correct keystroke have been?

I'm running Windows 10 Pro desktop and Thunderbird 91.9.0 32 bit, with the message open, I hit Alt-M and h This gives the name of the file.

Many thanks. I'm an old dog trying to remember the tricks she used to know,

Margaret

Hi if you have a number keypad press insert plus the 5 key 3 times quickly This should spell it out like golf alpha mike echo for example.

You can also read the file name then go into speech history to look at it
letter by letter. Speech history is entered by pressing the JAWS key with
space, then h. Then press Control End to get to the last item in the list.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong
