Re: Script to change start up message of jaws

Hi John,
I have followed these instructions to alter what Jaws speaks upon startup, 
but apparently I am not doing something correctly.  I made sure I was in the 
default script file and then followed the instructions as listed, but each 
time I try to save the changes, I get an error message that says "unexpected 
word autostart." Thus the changes are not being made.  I am wondering if the 
pasted text should begin on the blank line that is above endIf ; 
DefaultFirstTime == 0 or if i goes on a separate line.  Thanks for any help.
Belinda
