Re: statement when jaws starts

Bruce,

Yes, your examples could point out the flaw if the exact capitalization was 
not used in the dictionary manager. That's why I like Bob's script changes 
as the right way to go.

They know what they're talking about. You weren't changing what JAWS
says on startup, you were just changing how JAWS pronounces a string of
characters. Consider: "I know now that jaws for windows is ready." Yours
is not an eloquent solution because it is prone to misfire. Or consider
this one. "Windows has been plaguing me with errors all day, but I can
now unclench my jaws for Windows is ready. I can proceed with the task
at hand."
