Hi Peter

When JFW encounters the romaji, it treats it like any english words.  So for 
myself, I have to  use the cursor to read character by character in order to 
make sense of the word.

You have to switch the profile to japanese voice if the webpage is in japanese. 
 Or, if kanji words are displayed after the romaji, you just have to switch 
between the english and japanese voice. 

Hope this helps.

  Subject: Reading Japanese Romaji with JFW

  Hi, I've been learning Japanese for the last six months. I have a website 
which has some parts in Japanese Romaji (Japanese using the roman alphabet). I 
would like to be able to get JAWS to read it as it should sound but can't seem 
to do it. I've download the realspeak Japanese voice but that doesn't work 
either. I suspect it's because the language of the website is mainly english. I 
know if I go to some Japanese sites JAWS does tell me it's Japanese. Do I need 
to ask the author of the site to get it so JAWS also thinks that part of the 
site is Japanese.

  I hope that makes sense but I'm no expert on website publishing so don't 
really know what I'm talking about.
