1. Open the Settings Center with, Insert + 6, on the number row then press, control, shift + D, to open default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, Text Processing closed, right arrow to open, down arrow to, General closed, right arrow to open, down arrow to, Phonetic Announcement, and rightarrow to open.
3. With Phonetic Announcement open you have 2 choices:
A. Down arrow 1 time to, Spell phonetically always, this is a checkbox.  To turn it on press the spacebar to check this box.
B. Down arrow again  to, When pausing after character navigation, and this option has 4 choices that you toggle through using the spacebar.  To turn off use the first choice from below.
* Speak character phonetically never.
* After one half second.
* After 1 second.

I believe it is JAWS 2019 you installed. To turn off Phonetic announcements,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row, just above the letter Y.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default JAWS configuration.
3. Type the following letters with no spaces between them:

p h o

4. Arrow down through the search results looking for the words

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically

5. Tap the space bar until you hear the word Never.
6. TAB to the OK button, and press ENTER.

Now, as you arrow through a document and pause, you will no longer hear the phonetic announcements.

Running the latest version of JAWS 2019 Home Use, on Win 10 and was wondering how does one stop JAWS from saying the phonetic form of a letter.?
E.G., when you arrow to to the letter a, then Jaws will say, "Alfa," if you don't move the cursor from that letter.
