Re: Any anser on Jaws read with cursor stop?

Hi,
I'm not sure where I come into this, but I can reassure you that I practice 
remembering these commands daily with Word. Just kidding. I mean I use them 
as a matter of course, and would have to be deprogrammed by aliens to forget 
them. :-)

Yes, Chris, the navigation commands are helpful. I think the sentence
commands you were trying to remember are alt-uparrow and alt-downarrow,
which I know work in some MS products. They don't work in WordPerfect, my
primary word processor. I think Yardbird is aware of these commands, but it
doesn't hurt to be reminded.

Hello Adrian.

Don't forget there are Jaws keystrokes allowing you to read single
paragraphs and single sentences at a time. For example when I'm writing a
message I like to have the sentence read back to me to make sure it makes
sense. When I'm done with the paragraph I use the speak paragraph command to
make sure the current paragraph makes sense.

I apologize for not remembering the keystrokes for sentences. The keystrokes
for paragraphs are control + up arrow = speak previous paragraph, control +
down arrow = speak next paragraph and the keystroke for speak current
paragraph is control + number pad 5.

I hope this helps.

Chris.

Yardbird,

You've just demonstrated a limitation of JAWS. I put "stop" in quotations
and not control, so that "stop" was meant to clarify the purpose of the
control key. It's one of those areas where I wish FS's software developers
would devote some overdue attention to improving JAWS's reading fluency.
Others are to place pauses at semicolons and colons, as JAWS already does at
commas and periods, and to make text inside single quotations as
intelligible as text within double quotations.

As for stopping JAWS speaking at the cursor, I find the control key
effective. Older methods were less so.

Adrian, You say "Jaws control stop?" Do you mean just the traditional press
of the Control key to halt Jaws speaking? Or is there a combination
keystroke that is designed to break off speech even more precisely than
that? I confess, pressing the Control key, as I learned to do from the
audiocassette tutorials that came with my first version of Jaws some years
ago, has always served well enough. But maybe there's something more one can
do, as I say? Or am I just misreading you? Because I do have some problems
with it being difficult to navigate easily for editing in Word that I don't
even wish to struggle to describe right now, and any trick that might help
to tame Jaws more than I sometimes can manage will be appreciated. Jaws
being to

Thanks.

Thank you for your reply, and yes this does work after checking it closer.
Guess I wasn't using the Control key to stop Jaws reading or my key board is
warn out and must be changed. In fact I think this could be causing me a lot
of unfinished key strokes...thanks. MMM

correctly, it suggests JAWS is acting oddly on your system. I find that the
cursor stays at the point in the text where I press the JAWS control "stop"
command. I might be a few words beyond where I want to insert an edit, but
JAWS does seem to respond right away and the cursor stays at that point.

If I've understood you correctly and JAWS is not behaving this way, the
question becomes how to fix it. That, I'm afraid, I can't answer.

Hi all, just asking again if anyone might know how to make the cursor stop
at the point where jaws stops reading. Let's say jaws is set to read a
sentence and does so. But there is a wrong word or I need to change a word
or grammer mark near the end of the reading and I want to change it. But the
jaws cursor is back at beginning of sentence and now I must key my way to
that last word. What settings do I use to make jaws sit at the point where
it stops reading, if possible, please let me know. Thanks all, MMM
