I had the same error. here is what I did to fix it. replace the first line of the script you coppied with the one below. just change the name from Rob to your name. Say ("Welcome Rob,", OT_message) it seems that a coma after the quote sign was missing.

His were better in point form, but I have posted the instructions I use below, which I believe I got from the old jfwlite list. I added the first line as a welcome message but you certainly can omit this first line. If you do want to have a message you can put whatever you want in here. Hope this helps and if you want write me off the list at: hannah74@xxxxxxx Shannon Announce Jaws version number and Date and Time on Load If you have more than one version of Jaws on your system, sometimes it is easy to get confused what version is loaded. This script will say the number of Jaws that you are using, plus it will say the date and time when you first load jaws. Press jaws key+0 press control+shift+d to get to the default script file, Press control L for the script list and arrow down to AutoStartEvent and enter. You are now in the auto start event script arrow down to the line that says let DefaultFirstTime = 1 Go to the end of that line and enter and after that line paste in the following lines. Of course change the version number to reflect the version and build of Jaws you are making the script change for. Say ("Welcome Shannon , ") Say ("Version 10", OT_message) Say ("Loaded on", OT_Message) SayUsingVoice (VCTX_PCCursor, SysGetDate (), OT_No_Disable) Say ("at", OT_Message) SayUsingVoice (VCTX_PCCursor, SysGetTime (), OT_No_Disable) Then press control S to compile the script and alt f4 to leave the script manager.
