Re: Message to JFW mods


Adrian,
as I have stated before I am not in favor of adding JFW to the subject line.
However there is a way of adding it with out interfering with the use in most other situations.
See the following.
[JFW] this would be the entry that you would stop speaking via the dictionary entry.
this would allow JFW to still be spoken.
Max.

Dave,

Here, we find ourselves on opposite sides. To inform the JAWS dictionary
to remove JFW would be to have it not speak those three letters in other
contexts where we might want it.

Let me add that James would probably prefer listers carry on this debate
through him and off-list.

Well, Max, the dictionary manager is a very easy and powerful tool, and
I'm surprised that anyone objects to using it.

Hi, I am also not in favour of adding anything to the subject line. I
know that we can add a dictionary entry to stop hearing it. However as I
don't import my settings from v 10 - 11 etc I must go in and re do all
the dictionary entries. I really hate doing that. Max.

Hi, Personally I would vote against adding a string like this if it is
at the beginning of the subject. I find it extremely irritating to have
to listen to strings like that just to hear the subject of an email. It
drives me nuts. Just my 2 cents.

Hello James, First of all, thanks for the great job of moderating the
list. I wonder if it's possible to add JFW or similar as a prefix to the
subject line of messages to enable grouping etc. This would make email
reading much easier for those of us who have lots of emails to get
through each day. Compliments of the season to you all. Glen

I appreciate that you're looking for people to fill your newest of many
new mailing lists, but the JAWS list is hardly the place to be
advertising for it. Let's try to restrict our posting to things that are
actually considered on-topic for the list, please. This seems to be a
biweekly reminder to folks on the list, and I don't really think it
should need to be.

James, List Admin
