Hi, I like your explanation better than mine. Rich ----- Original Message ----- From: Christopher Hallsworth Sent: Wednesday, June 13, 2007 6:22 AM I've worked it out. Basically if the language for a particular synthesizer isn't available, such as Swedish for Eloquence, which doesn't exist anyway, JAWS will announce the language to which the page was written in. However, if you turn language detection off, JAWS will not do this. Thanks for the explanation!
