  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:

        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.

          Cy, The Anasazi..

          Could you mean the control key?

            Hi,

            I can not recall the toggle to silence JAWS.

            Thanks,

            Cy, The Anasazi.
