Re: JAWS randomly adding 't' at the end of words

Ann Byrne

Thanks. It isn't very important. I made no changes to the computer after the JAWS update on Wednesday, but the extra 't' appeared then. it isn't in the text, just in the voice. And I know how to ignore it. I figure either I will reinstall JAWS and hope that fixes it, or wait a while and see waht happens next. I was just curious if I were the only one to have this particular enhancement. (LOL)

You say JAWS adds these letters. DO you mean that the letters are not
actually present, but JAWS is making the hard "t" sound? If you look at
individual words, I take it, going character by character, there are no
extra letters.
What about synth? Could the synth be responsible for this? Try changing to a
different one and see if the problem persists.
Does this happen in all programmes? Only in documents you create? On web

JAWS randomly adds 't' following the final 's' of most words. Thus 'words"
becomes "wordst", "thus" becomes "thust", and "becomes" turns into
"becomest". Has anyone else experienced this?
