Hi Sharon,


Here you go:
 1. Open the Settings Center, with, Insert + 6, on the number row, press, control, shift, + D, to open Settings
Center default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, punctuation closed..., right arrow to open, down arrow to,
customize punctuation...., & press the spacebar to open.  Make sure you
press the spacebar to open & not enter. Pressing enter will close the
Settings Center.
3. Tab to the Advanced button & press spacebar to open.  The first item in
the list will be, blank, so tab 1 time to, edit description.... button, &
press the spacebar to open. Press the delete key to remove anything in the edit  field, now type the word, blank, in this edit field.  If you would rather have Jaws say something else, put whatever you want Jaws to say in this edit field instead of, blank.  I don't know how many characters can be inserted into this field so you'll have to experiment.
4. Tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to
apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar to save your
changes & close the Settings Center.
If you don't want this in all applications, open the desired applications
individually & use the above steps in each application.

Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Subject: [jaws-users] Changing how blank lines are spoken


Hi all, the other day I read somewhere how to change what is said when you go to a blank line. I changed it so it now doesn’t say anything, but this isn’t working for me, so I want to go back to it saying blank. I can not find where I make this change and I can’t find the message that told me how to do it in the first place.


Could someone please let me know where I go to make this.
