Hi, Bonnie, Try changing Screen Echo (INSERT+2). Screen Echo can also be changed more permanently from the Configuration Manager (INSERT+6). Hope this helps!

While doing mail merge in Office XP: When in-putting data in an individual record, as a character is typed in, JAWS echoes the field name between each character as typed. I tried changing JAWS from character to words but it did not help. Suggestions, please.
