Vocalising of formats and other information is one of the areas that has
been considerably beefed up with the last few versions of JAWS. The
Format options item on the Set Options menu has been replaced with the
Speech and Sounds Manager, which allows you to do a lot more than just
check or uncheck a few checkbox options. You may find you don't need to
go near it, as the keystroke Alt + Insert + S will open a list of sound
schemes that you can choose from. And if you do want to play with the
speech and sounds manager, you may want to read the relevant section of
the Help topics under "Customizing JAWS for Windows".

Subject: jaws 7 and settings

I'm trying to configure a program but was given the keystrokes for jaws
5.  I'll list them:
Open the program. Bring up configure manger using jaws key plus  6.
six.Hit alt S for set options and then F for format options.
Once there check the box that says speak text formatting enabled.
Tab through the remaining options and make sure that speak foreground
is checked.  You may want to uncheck the box that says speak attributes
because you don't really need that unless you find that for some reason
not behaving right without it, which it shouldn't.
Once you've done this, you can press ok, then control S for save and
you can press alt F4 to close the configuration manager.

Now in jaws 7 after hitting alt s the "format" option isn't available.
Any clues?
Way over my head,
