Re: statement when jaws starts

Also be sure to have the default dictionary open with ctrl+shift+d or use the 
file menu in the dictionary manager to go to the default dictionary.

  It works fine for me using JAWS 9.  Be sure to type Jaws for windows is ready 
(without quotes) into the Actual Word field of the Didctionary Manager.  Then 
tab to the Replacement Word field and type in the new phrase.  This should work 
regardless of which OS you are running, since this is strictly a JAWS function.

      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".

              Hi Stephen, I have instructions on changing how jaws starts. When 
ever I get a new version I change the announcement to say what version it is, 
the time, date and I have even added in a few other things. Like Hello Shannon. 
I have the instructions on how to do this if you want I can send them to you 
off list, just let me know.

              Shannon

                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.
