Troy, Jaws key plus 2 on the num row changes the typing echo setting. Also you 
can change it with Jaws key V, then T for typing echo and toggle among the 
settings with the space bar.

Subject: problem with Jaws 8 muting keys

Hello All,
I have muted a bunch of keys under the configuration manager in the default 
for Jaws 8 but the keys are still being spoken when I press them.  Can 
anybody help?

After I muted all the keys I wanted to the first time and found out that it 
didn't work I went back to verify that they were muted and they were, and I 
have tried shutting down Jaws and restarting it as well as totally rebooting 
with no success.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I had Jaws 8 installed 
recently but it was freezing on some web pages so I uninstalled it and went 
back to Jaws 7.  Jaws 7 was doing some stuff that I didn't like either so I 
reinstalled version 8 and that's when the problem mentioned above started 
happening where the keys are muted in the configuration manager but they are 
still being spoken.
