RE: silencing JAWS

Hi Dave,

Well, as an act of faith I gave this a shot.

I got JAWS turned off and, by golly, I even got it turned back on.

Now, there seems to be an awful amount of echo and duel reading.

Any hints?

Cy, The (amused) Anasazi..

Hello everyone:

 

This is a correction to my previous message on this thread.

 

To switch to the "No Speech Synthesizer", do the following:

 

press JAWS KEY+CTRL+S.  This opens the  "Select a Synthesizer Dialog Box".

 

Press the letter N, which will highlight the No Speech Synthesizer.

 

Press the ENTER key to accept your choice.  The dialog box is closed and
JAWS stops speaking.

 

Do the following to return to the default synthesizer:

 

Press JAWS KEY+CTRL+S.  This opens the  "Select a Synthesizer Dialog Box".

 

Press, for example, the letter E, for Eloquence, the letter S, for SAPI 5.

 

When you have selected the synthesizer, Press the ENTER key to accept your
choice.  The dialog box is closed and JAWS starts speaking.

 

Please accept my apologies for posting incorrect information.

 

Sincerely:

 

Dave Durber

Whenb I press JAWS plus s it rotates between all, none and highlighted.
Don't you mean JAWS plus j, then language, voice profile etc?

Negoslav:

 

The information you included in your message works in the same way as the
last function under the "Adjust JAWS Options menu, Keystroke JAWS/INSERT+V.

 

The problem is that when you use either of these methods, JAWS will start
speaking again, as soon as a scheduled or system event starts and a new
window is opened, even if the window is open for a split second.  This is
because the application in which you muted the synthesizer lost focus.  This
would also be the case, even if focus was returned to the application in
which you had muted the synthesizer.

 

The only way to make sure that JAWS does not speak at all, is to switch to
the "No Speech Synthesizer".

 

You do this by pressing JAWS/INSERT+S, followed by the letter N, for the No
Speech synthesizer, followed by pressing the ENTER key.  JAWS will not
speak, regardless as to any system or scheduled events that might be going
on.

 

You turn on the synthesizer by pressing JAWS/INSERT+S, followed by the
letter E, for Eloquence, the letter S, for SAPI, followed by pressing the
ENTER key.

 

HTH

 

Sincerely:

 

Dave Durber

Here's some info from

http://www.jaws-users.com/text/JAWS/KeystrokeToMuteJAWS.html

 

Assigning A Keystroke To Mute JAWS   

 

1. Bring up your keyboard manager with insert+8 on the number row.
2. Make sure you are focused on the default file.
3. Tab once in to the list of available functions.
4. Then start typing mute until you hear mute synthesizer, which will have
no keystroke, assigned.
5. Press control A and give it what ever keystroke your heart desires.
6. Save your changes when you close out the keyboard manager.

 

Note that this is a toggle kind of thing, and that JAWS will only remain
muted so long as you're focused on the current Window.

Hi,

No, I think I remember that there is a key which will toggle the speech on
and off. I do not want to quit JAWS and I am aware of the cntrl key with
will (in theory) cause JAWS to cease speaking the current text.

I simply want to silence JAWS until I want it to speak again.

Could you mean the control key?

Hi,

I can not recall the toggle to silence JAWS.

Thanks,
