Re: Jaws reading bolded text

Debbie, I am working on jaws 5.1 and word 2000 and jjust followed your 
instructions.  I hope this works, jaws does not read bolded text on this 
machine either.  Thanks, Judith

  I apologize if my instructions were not as complete as they could have been.

   

  My instructions to have JAWS read bolded text were based on JAWS 6.0 in 
MSWord. I use Word 2003 at work and Word 2000 at home. 

   

  To access the JAWS Scheme dialog box is to press ?alt + insert + S?. The 
dialog box opens in a list with ?classic? as the default. I instructed that one 
should select ?classic (attributes). 

   

  JAWS will acknowledge the bolded text as bold and the italics text as 
italics. Attributes includes italics, underline, and bold. To know where these 
changes start and end, JAWS will speak the attribute first and then the text. 
Because the default in Word is ?normal? when the attribute goes back to the 
original, that is without being italics, underline, or bold, JAWS will read 
?Normal?. 

   

  I left out how to change the settings back to the default in the case you did 
not like this option after all. If you find this more confusing than worth 
having bold read to you; you can go back into the scheme dialog box and select 
?classic?, which is the JAWS default. 

   

  Other classic choices where even more information is spoken are:

  Classic (attributes, font info., & color)

  Classic with quotes

   

  Now, with my settings on ?attributes?, my JAWS is also reading 
?strikethrough?. My ?font? dialog box does not indicate the strikethrough 
checkbox as being checked. 

   

  If this is not clear, or what you get is not what you expected, please 
consult your help for JAWS. 

   

  Tip: Before changing a setting, check as to the default or at least what it 
is prior to making the change so you can go back and set it back. 

   

  Again, I hope this helps. 

   

  Debbie

    Hi,
    I  followed these  instructions and  found  myself
     really messed up.

    I am sure it  must have been my fault and the kind  folksat tech support 
    couldnot help meo ut.

    If  you find your key operations nonresponsive, immediately close down JAWS 
    6.1 and restart it.
    Everything fixes then.

    I am sure the mistake was  mine andd this is why I say if in trouble,  
close 
    JAWS   before you mess up further settings.
