Sorry I didn't pass on your name George, but the following email is for you.

Well, whoever this unknown person that sent this answer is helped me a lot.
Between what he sent and the knowledge I have to do the extra things that
needed to be done, I have my DecTalk USB functioning again.  I won't go into
all the details, it is enough to send a hearty thanks and praise for the UK
JAWS listers who so kindly helped me.  Bravo, good people!

  Product Name: JAWS 

  Version: 6.10 plus 

  Category: Synthesizer 

  How do I make JAWS work with my new DECTalk USB from Access Solutions? 

  The DECTalk USB JAWS driver is included in JAWS 6.10, released April 2005, 
and can be chosen during installation when you opt for a guided or advanced 
installation. JAWS 6.10 is a free upgrade for all users authorized to use JAWS 
6.0. You will still need to visit http://www.axsol.com to obtain the system 
driver or use the CD that shipped with your DECTalk USB as JAWS doesn't install 
the system level driver. 

  If you are using JAWS version 5.0 - 6.0, you must manually add support for 
DECTalk USB. Before proceeding, please visit http://www.axsol.com for the 
latest JAWS and system-level drivers. Follow the manufacturer's instructions 
for installing the device on your system. After the device is installed, you 
must add support for it in JAWS. Follow the instructions below to complete the 
installation. You may want to download the files from Access Solutions to 
ensure you have the latest JAWS and system drivers.

  Do the following to add support for the DECTalk USB:

  1. Extract the contents of the file you downloaded from http://www.axsol.com 
to an easily accessible folder. You will need a program such as WinZip to 
extract the files.
  2. Select the file Jsdtusb.jls and press CTRL+C to copy it.
  3. Navigate to the folder where you installed JAWS.
  4. Use CTRL+V to paste the file Jsdtusb.jls into your JAWS folder.
  5. Open the file Jfw.ini in Notepad.
  6. Find the Speech Synthesizers section and add the following lines to the 

  SynthXLongName=DECtalk USB

  "X" is the number of the synthesizer you are adding. For example, if the last 
synthesizer in your list is "synth3," replace "X" with "4" because the DECTalk 
will be the fourth entry in the list.

  7. Press CTRL+S to save your changes and press ALT+F4 to quit Notepad.
  8. Quit and then restart JAWS. You can now switch to your DECTalk USB without 

  Please be sure to read the steps included with the file you downloaded from 
Access Solutions for instructions regarding the actual installation of this 
device on your system.
