I'm resigned to spending a couple of hours or whatever it takes to try to 
comply with FS tech support's requests that I launch my Jaws 8 in default 
mode so as to not involve any changes I may have made to default.jcf in my 
personal (Admin, in my case) file.

I've tried this out briefly, but as it will take a lot of time to run 
through each and every scenario in which Jaws does something wrong, I really 
hate the idea of doing all this at the low speech rate that you get until 
you change it in the voice options in the Jaws window, which is the first 
thing I usually do after installing.

What I'd like to know, if the technically experienced can advise, is will 
making no more modifications than speeding up the speech rate blow the 
entire experiment? I mean, this won't involve me going into Configuration 
manager to make "serious" changes,which I suppose would create an 
increasingly complex default.jcf. Just the speech rate.

Anybody know if that one tweak would be okay, or would it ruin the whole 
thing in a diagnostic sense?
