Re: statement when jaws starts

Let's all keep in mind that you need to be changing the default dictionary. Any 
other dictionary will not work.

After you open the dictionary, make sure you're editing the default dictionary 
by pressing Ctrl+Shift+D. You'll hear 

"default.jdf - jaws dictionary manager"

Then do the edits suggested.

  Hi Dianna,

  I'm sorry this didn't work for you. I did this earlier in the week and had no 
problem. Here is exactly what I did.

  In JAWS, I opened the JAWS dictionary.

  I tabbed to "add an entry.

  In the field for the word or phrase, I typed "JAWS for windows is ready" 
without the quotation marks.

  I tabbed once to the next field and entered the message I wanted to hear on 
JAWS start up.

  Then I tabbed to "ok".

  When I closed the menu, I answered yes to the "save changes to default 
prompt".

  As others have said, you can add a sound to your message, but I just kept it 
simple.

  HTH

  Blessings.

  Lynn I

        This has been covered already, but I'll repeat it anyway.  The easiest 
way to change the JAWS start-up message is to use the Dicttionary Manager.  
Follow these steps:
        1.  Go to the JAWS Utilities menu and select Dictionary Manager.
        2. Hit Space on the Add... dialog to select the Add Dictionary 
Definition dialog.
        3. In the Actual Word field, type "jaws for windows is ready." exactly 
as it appears in quotes.
        4. In the Replacement Word field, type the phrase you would like to 
hear instead.  For example, you could type in something like, "Hurray!! JAWS 10 
is good to go!!".
        5. If you wish, you can also add a sound to play along with the phrase 
by choosing a sound from the list of provided sounds.
        6. Tab to Okay and hit Space.
        7. Close the Dictionary Manager, and reply with Yes when prompted to 
save changes.  Now, whenever you turn on your computer or launch JAWS manually, 
you will hear the new phrase you just created instead of "JAWS for Windows is 
Ready".

to you off list, just let me know.

                  hello list.

                   

                  does anyone know of a way to change what jaws says when 
windows xp starts?

                   

                  currently it says jaws for windows is ready.

                   

                  can this be changed to a statement of my choice?

                   

                  all help is appreciated.
