  Christine,

  Then I really think changing the Scheme to Color might work wonderfully for 
you.
  Does V7 have that option?

  Press JAWS Key + PF2 to go into the JAWS Managers.
  Arrow down to Configuration Manager and press enter.
  Press ALT S to get to Settings.
  Under settings, there is a Speech and Sounds option.  
  Press enter on it.
  Arrow up or down until you hear color.  Press enter.
  Press control S to save the setting change. 

  Then you could quickly arrow down listening for a yellow????

  The Internet Find command doesn't offer a color search, since so much of web 
design is based on color.
  It does search for case and whole words, but that won't help.
  Where on earth do you work that you are "stuck" with V7?
  Good luck!

  Always, 
  Barbara Anne

  Thanks, I'll try this out.  I unfortunately, have to look online for the 
yellow alerts which are the new alerts.  I think an easy find function for 
colors would be handy in v12.  I'm stuck using v7 at work. (tears)

    Hi Christine,

    My first question is in which application?  WORD I hope!
    But allot of this might work for other MS applications.
    Actually this is something I have really been needing to remind myself of 
for my own job, so I am glad you asked.  It made me go back through my notes 
and dig it up again.

    Here's some helpful things I have in my Cheat Sheet List.

    Insert (JAWS Key) plus number 5 will read the color of the text where the 
cursor is sitting.


    Pressing Insert (JAWS Key) with the alt key plus S (it's a stretch) will 
bring up a list of scheme options that can be toggled on and off.  Color is one 
of them.  Arrow down to it and press enter.  As you read with JAWS, and the 
color changes, the color will be spoken before the text is read.

    I can not figure out how to Find text with any color, but here is how to 
find a specific color:
    Press CTL F for the find menu,
    Be sure the find edit box is empty of any text.

    Tab to format.  It will be after the cancel button.

    If you don't hear it, look for the MORE button.  Press enter and tab again. 
 You will find lots of options to search for:  mixed case, whole words, wild 
card etc.

    Press enter on the Format button.

    You will land on the Font... menu option.  Press enter.

    Tab until you here FONT color.  Arrow up down, left or right until you hear 
the color you need to search for.  

    Press enter.

    Tab to OK.

    You should be back on the original Find page.  

    Press enter and any text in the color you chose will be located.



    This Find specification will remain until you edit WORD, not just the 
document.

    So if you want to stop searching for a color you can either open a new 
session of WORD or use the steps above to set the color back to auto.

    If you ever need To check/remind yourself which color is being searched, 
you can check the font & color attributes for what is in the FIND edit box 
dialogue by route  JAWS to PC cursor (insert numpad minus) and arrow down.  
This will read what attributes are being searched.

    It is very easy to get lost if you end up looking for different colors.



    I hope someone has an answer on how to search for any color.  Often we have 
documents where Sally puts her comments in Pink, while  Tom puts his in Blue.

    Always,

    Barbara Anne
