I know exactly what you're talking about. Because the letter "a' is also an indefinite article, JAWS will not pronounce it as we do uppercase "A." My solution is to write the four letters eigh, as in the word "sleigh," in the replacement field of the JAWS dictionary. I hope this works for you. ----- Original Message ----- From: Tracy Sent: Sunday, May 10, 2009 5:16 PM How do I change the way JAWS says the letter a when reading character by character? tracyduffy@xxxxxxxxx (that's also my messenger contact) Skype: 1tracetypegirl EVERY TIME I CLOSE THE DOOR ON REALITY IT COMES IN THROUGH THE WINDOWS.
