Re: global versus Application specific.

Yes, your explanation made sense. To summarize, when I want to change a setting that effects every application in JFW, settings are applied to the default .jcf configuration file or .JCF, correct? When changes are to be made for a specific application, the Program in question has to be opened, and changes can be made from there. Is this correct?

I'll just make up an example here which I hope will explain the situation.

Let's say you like a speech rate of 80% for general use. So you go into your global settings, and set the speech rate for 80%.That's now your default speech rate: JAWS will use a speech rate of 80% unless you tell it otherwise.

Now, let's say you prefer a slower speech rate when you're in Word, to be sure your typing isn't as bad as mine. So you want a speech rate of 50%. You still want 80% in all of your other applications, but you want to slow it down for Word. So you'd go into Word, and you would adjust your application-specific setting for Word to 50%. Remember, the speech rate will be 80% unless we tell it otherwise? This is how to tell it otherwise. So if we have global set for 80%, and Word's application-specific setting at 50%, then we have told JAWS this: Always use a speech rate of 80%, except when you're in Word, in which case I want you to slow down to 50%. Then when you leave Word, the global setting will take over again. Let me know if this explanation makes any sense.

Hi List,
I'm still confused about the meaning of global versus application specific settings. It seems both of these options are in both the global and application voice settings menus. Why is this?
Thanks for any assistance with these questions.
