Re: statement when jaws starts

This works. I now have it say, "Hi Chris, JAWS Is Ready."

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".

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.
