moderated Using JAWS with Google Docs


Korinne Bougher
 

Hello all,

When I type in Google Docs, I notice that JAWS announces the character that I am typing twice. I have been using JAWS with Google Docs for some time now, and it has never done this before. Is there any way to fix it? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Korinne

I understand what is happening, but don't have solutions yet. The issue is that Google Docs is doing echoing with "live" regions, and JAWS is also doing echoing of characters.  
You could always adjust echo  and if you create a special Google Docs profile that could be added to the Settings center for that profile. There also might be a setting in Google Docs to adjust typing echo.

I am having a similar issue. For me, I ignore the feedback and keep going. What I don’t like is the dealy as I write.

Thank you for bringing this up!
