Re: Not getting Character creation with new Jaws update

Sorry, I should have read more carefully. You're right. I didn't notice that you mentioned this key.

Hi Negoslav ,

Yes, that's the keystroke, as I believe said in my first post. Thank you
very much.

Joel,

There is a key combination for a JAWS dictionary of symbols from which you may copy the ones you need into your document. Unfortunately, I use it so
rarely I don't remember what that silly combination is.

With regard to your pronunciation problem, there is, I believe, a setting
in
JAWS whereby it will recognize languages, other than English,
automatically.

I hope I've been a little helpful.

Best regards,

Subject: Not getting Character creation with new Jaws update

After reading the list of bug fixes and improvements in this update on the
FS Web page about it, I was looking forward to again being able to create
characters with diacritical marks and other things like the inverted
question mark and inverted exclamation point in Spanish, in my word 2000.
Sadly, what I expected hasn't come to pass. My attempts to produce an
accented lowercase a result in nothing at all, just like before I
installed
the update. Yes, of course I restarted when the installation was complete,
as instructed by the installation wizard.

Could this be because my way of creating such characters is to use the
Insert num row 4 command to get a list of such things to choose from and
insert in the text? I haven't used the actual Word character function for
years. It was difficult enough for me when I could see it, and with Jaws I
never could figure it out at all, so I really welcomed it when someone on
a
list like this told everyone about the Insert 4 deal.

For comparison, I can and do create such characters when I'm typing an
email
in my Outlook Express 6. Let me try that right here and see if it still
works. I'll type the Spanish word for pharmacy with an accented a in the
second syllable. or try to, anyway. Farmácia.  yep. I got myself the a
acute
that I wanted. In Spanish, it would now have the accent on that second
syllable and the last part would sound like see ya, not shuh. even though
I
can't figure out how to trick jaws into saying it right, at the moment. So Insert A still exists in this updated version. But it still won't work for
me in Word anymore, which I think it used to do in Version 9 but gave up
in
Version 10. Maybe I misremember?

Any helpful information will be appreciated. yes, I stick with Word 2000
on
purpose, for certain reasons, so if that's the problem, that Jaws 10
doesn't
fully "support" Word 2000, I'll have to let it go.

Joel
