Using a color scheme, I can get JAWS to verbally announce colors including the 
background color as text, but I cannot see an option to get JAWS to use a 
different voice whenever it encounters a gray background.  For our purposes, we 
need a different voice activating whenever a background shading is encountered 
in order to alert the reader that text has been added.  Thanks for the effort 
to help.

Have you tried looking through the list of schemes?  I think you might want
one of the schemes that detects colors.  It would notify you when the color
changed from something like black on white to black on gray.

I hope this helps.

We have a policy manual with text marked with strikeout and with gray
shading.  The counselor must be able to tell immediately when these effects
are in effect as JAWS reads the text.  I found the strikethrough effect in
the Sounds Manager, but the only shaded effect I can find is on the Misc
tab- and I could not get it to speak with a different voice.  I hope someone
can help.
