Re: Is this a Jaws problem?

Troy,

Okay. I was just trying to figure out how this could happen. Because, 
despite what some people have said, there certainly are a few keys you can 
cause to repeat when held down or turn off the repeating function, but they 
don't include ordinary alphanumeric keys, just certain symbols.

Good luck.

I realize this is getting off topic but I'll answer the question and then
will drop it, I mean that I press either an i, an o, or a u and before I let
up on the key it sometimes will have typed two of that letter instead of one
which is what I wanted.  It could be a keyboard problem and I do have
another keyboard that I'll try and see if it is any better, but it may very
well also be a neurological problem, at least I won't rule that out
completely although I'm not striking the key twice, I'm apparently just not
letting up on it quick enough at times.  If it is neurological though, even
if it is all in my right hand it seems strange that it's only with those 3
letters and not with everything I type with that hand.

Troy,

What good would it do if you could stop jaws speaking the second instance of
the character you'd somehow typed twice? It would still be typed twice, but
now you'd be obligated to reread every word you wrote in order to find and
delete such duplications, either manuallly or by using spell check, even if
you wouldn't have bothered, ordinarily.

Also, you say this happens because you're "heavy fingered," suggesting that
you can't manage to lift your finger off the key before it repeats. Well,
most keys on your keyboard are *not* repeating characters. So do you mean
that you somehow type letters and numbers twice, lifting your finger after
having depressed the key once, and then striking it a second time? That
sounds not like having a heavy finger but more like a neurological problem
or the shakes. Maybe this is something to look into with a doctor? Just
running through the possibilities.

Good luck.

Hello All,

For quite a while now I have been getting a lot of double letters in words
when I'm typing, especially the letters i, o, and u.  It seems like most of
the time when I go to type one of those 3 letters I'll end up with 2 of the
same letter instead of one.  I know that this is just due to heavy fingers
but is there any adjustment I can make in Jaws to keep this from happening?
I was thinking specifically about the
