Claire,

When in Word, Insert+v for the JAWS options dialog. Then press the letter 
"L" until you hear "language detection" and make sure it's turned off.

Subject: Problem with reading a Word document


Dear All,

I have a very long .doc file (roughly 300 pages) to read,
unfortunaetly I'm having problems reading it.

When I try to read the text, JAWS appears to be reading it in a
different language, or at least seems to be using the accent of
another language. (To my untrained ear, it sounds like German). I know
the text is in English as it is the scanned version of an
English-language academic text.

I don't know if I have to change a JAWS setting so as to read it
properly and have JAWS pronounce the English words correctly.

Would anyone have any suggestions?

All the best,
Claire.
