[jaws-uk] Re: Menus not spoken.

The first thing you should consider doing is chainging the display settings, 
Jaws until veersion 7.0 is very reliant on tracking highlights by colour.
1    Open Start menu and then Control Panel.
2    Press letter D to locate "Display" and press enter on it.
3    Change the "Theme" to "Windows Classic".
4    Press control+tab to reach the "settings" page.
5    Tab to "colour Quality" combo box and drop this to "16 bit colour".
6    Tab to "OK" button and press spacebar on it.
7    If asked to keep the changes tab to "yes" and press enter or spacebar on 
it.
8    Restart the PC and try Jaws again.

  Subject: [jaws-uk] Menus not spoken.


  Hello,
  I have Jaws version 4.5 with X P Home Edition already loaded onto my new 
computer which is now set up. After installing Jaws 4.50, jaws is not speaking 
any menu options in either drop down or context menus. For example, in file 
menu of Outlook Express 6,the first menu option should be new, which is not 
spoken.

  A Jaws repair was done but still no spoken menu options. My wife has checked 
all the options in configoration manager but with no success. Finally 
uninstalled and then re- installed Jaws 4.50 which still didn't solve this 
problem.

  Tearing my hair out guys!! any help desperately desperately needed please 
please!!!

  Thanks,

  Michael Brown.
