ADMIN: Re: [jaws-users] Weird!

Hi Miriam,
If you want to categorize or type this list in that manner, that's okay,
but keep this in mind:
The guidelines of this list are in place for the benefit of everyone!
Every now and then members, moderators included neglect the subject line
and we all need a little reminder!

Richard Q. Justice-list moderator

Sorry. I forgot that this is an obsessive compulsive list. I will, in the
future, attempt to make my subject line conform to the material in my email.
I have been admonished, and I am duly regretful.

What kind of a subject line is this? Please review the guidelines.

JAWS is indicating the phonetic pronunciation of the letter when you move to
it and pause. You can adjust these settings in: Insert+6 for configuration
manager, Text Processing, General, Phonetic Announcement.

I thought I solved my problem. Well, I did, sort of. Jaws is no longer
echoing words in Outlook or in word. However, it still occasionally
says a random word which starts with a letter that it seems to
arbitrarily choose.
For example, I re-read the word, "occasionally", just now to check my
spelling, and Jaws then chose the letter I and said a word starting
with that letter . I've now used the insert 2 method in addition to
the more comprehensive insert 6 method, and I'm hoping that Jaws will
stop providing me with these random words.
