Thanks much, Jake.
I had previously gone into voice aliases and couldn't find the main reading 
voice, so that's where I was having problems.

Hi Steve. To change any of the voices, do the following.

1  Bring up the JAWS window with JAWS key plus J.
2  Bring up the options menu with alt plus O.
3  Arrow down to the Voices submenu and then to Individual Voice.
4  Arrow down to PC voice and tab until you get to the Person combobox.

Please note this only changes the reading voice for the speech synthesizer
you're currently using. After completing your desired change tab to the Okay
button and hit Enter or the spacebar. HTH.
