Hello all,
I've heard about this on another list so thought I would pass this on.
To make JAWS less chatty in Windows Explorer:
1. Open Windows Explorer. Then, press insert+6 to open Configuration Manager. It should say, "explorerframe.jcf - JAWS Configuration Manager". This is fine as you should only do this for Windows Explorer. 2. Press alt+s to open the set options menu, then v to open the Verbosity Options dialogue box. 3. Tab to the preferences button corresponding to your current verbosity level and activate it. 4. Down arrow till you hear, "control type checked". Press space and you should hear, "control type not checked".
5. Press enter to activate the ok button.
6. Back in the Verbosity Options dialogue box, tab to the ok button and activate it.
7. Save your changes with ctrl+s.
8. Close Configuration Manager with alt+f4.
Hope this helps!
