I stand corrected then. :) Forgot the history--read that a number of years ago. Mark

The term phonetic is correct. The phonetic alphabet was created by NATO in the 50s.

only know because my dad is a Captain in the merchant navy.

Yes, the term phoenetic is actually incorrect, I do agree. Since I've memorized the entire ITU alphabet (which is what that system is--I forget what ITU itself stands for--some organization that came up with the system, that much I know) and most people don't understand it anyway. They laugh when I use it because it's not really that well-known outside ham circles or people like me, who memorized it for one reason or another. Comes in handy though regardless of people's reaction. :) Mark

Hi guys,

I don't think you'd call "phonetic" what you get by pressing num pad 5 (no insert key needed; that would read the whole word the cursor's on) twice. So
far as I'm aware, it's just something like a military or nautical thing
where each letter is attached to a common word to make it clear in case of a
hazy radio signal or the like. Lima, India, kilo, echo, for instance.

that's a big 10-4, I say to myself, switching to CB mode. Breaker, breaker.
What's your 10-20?

Simply pressing the numpad 5 will give you the letter, second press will
give you the phonetic for that letter and pressing the numpad the third time will give you the ASCII number for the letter or whatever the cursor was on.

You could move to the letter you can't understand and press INSERT + numpad
5

I think that gives you the letter pheticaly, if not, try pressing it twice.

Can anybody tell me how can I get the jaws speech voice ,where I can hear the letter clear ? I'm having some trouble of understanding the letter for
example f,v,c,z,b and t. I'm hard of hearing and I'm trying my best to
understand the letter and word too. I will appreciate if somebody can give
me some suggestion.
