RE: Writing of Jaws scripts

Hi

It's very difficult to explain to you what you are doing wrong, so this
may be a bit long-winded. Before we get started it is important to say
that I am not very advansed with writing JAWS for Windows scripts.

Here is the default AutoStartEvent Function:
Void Function AutoStartEvent ()
let g_JavaIgnoreNextActiveItemChange = 0
let GlobalMousePixel = 3
FrameClearValues ()
VirtualStart ()
if (DefaultFirstTime == 0) then
        let DefaultFirstTime = 1
        Let iWin95 = IsWinNTOr95 ()
        Let iWin2K = ((!iWin95)&&(GetWindowsOS ()==OS_WIN_NT))
        Let GITblHeaders=TBL_HEADER_BOTH;Default behavior
        If (!IsJFWInstall()) then
                ;SayFormattedMessage (ot_app_start, cmsgAppStart1_L,
cmsgAppStart1_S)
        endIf
endIf ; DefaultFirstTime == 0
If BrailleInUse () then
        Let GIBrailleActive = on
        BrailleStart ()
EndIf
InitializeMSNSupport();For MSN Messenger Contact speaking.
let BackForward=0
let giRestoreFormsModeAfterVirtualizeCPS=FALSE
EndFunction

And now, here is the modified version that says "Hello, how are you
today":
Void Function AutoStartEvent ()
let g_JavaIgnoreNextActiveItemChange = 0
let GlobalMousePixel = 3
FrameClearValues ()
VirtualStart ()
if (DefaultFirstTime == 0) then
        let DefaultFirstTime = 1
        Let iWin95 = IsWinNTOr95 ()
        Let iWin2K = ((!iWin95)&&(GetWindowsOS ()==OS_WIN_NT))
        Let GITblHeaders=TBL_HEADER_BOTH;Default behavior
        If (!IsJFWInstall()) then
                ;SayFormattedMessage (ot_app_start, cmsgAppStart1_L,
cmsgAppStart1_S)
        endIf
SayString ("hello, How are you today?")
endIf ; DefaultFirstTime == 0
If BrailleInUse () then
        Let GIBrailleActive = on
        BrailleStart ()
EndIf
InitializeMSNSupport();For MSN Messenger Contact speaking.
let BackForward=0
let giRestoreFormsModeAfterVirtualizeCPS=FALSE
EndFunction

Subject: Writing of Jaws scripts


I was trying to write a short script.  I wanted Jaws to say after saying
"Jaws for windows is ready", "hello angel, how are you today", as I
wanted to sort of customize my Jaws experience.  I wrote 
SayString("Hello angel, how are you today")()ot_string) I went to the
script that said autostart, pressed enter, upon hearing endIf ;
DefaultFirstTime == 0 I put a blank line above this and wrote my script.
When I closed my script I got an error which said something to the
effect I had written an unexpected word.  The script did not take hold.
What am I doing wrong.  Any help would be appreciated.
