Hi all,
One hazard that Carlos doesn't mention is that, if you're silly enough to
set Jaws to read English menu items as if they were words in a foreign
language that you don't know very well, it can be a bit tricky switching
back to English.  Braille displays are a godsend!

Hi Jane
When you install Jaws, Eloquence is installed with 10 languages, one of
which is Spanish. Of course, you are given the choice not to install other
than American English.
To change language, provided you are using Eloquence, you press the control
key and the Windows key at the same time as the letter l. The keys I'm
talking about are the two left most keys on the bottom row. You'll hear Jaws
opening a menu of languages, ten in all, as I have already mentioned. You
can go up and down this menu and press ENTER when you find the language you
want. You can also press the letter C when in that menu to jump directly to
Castilian Spanish.
There is also a Latin-American Spanish option. Please bare in mind that this
is only to make Eloquence read text in Spanish. If you are moving your
cursor over text in English Eloquence treats it as Spanish and you may find
it rather difficult to understand.
If you need or want to have the full Spanish version you probably should get
in touch with ONCE, which is the Spanish equivalent of the RNIB. I use only
the standard English version of Jaws but can type in Spanish and read
newspapers, books and visit web pages in Spanish using the procedure
mentioned above.
Suerte:

Carlos V.
