how to change jaws voice parameters on the fly


Mike Bernard
 

Hi everyone,

Hope everyones’ having a good week thus far. I already know that in order to adjust the rate in Jaws on the fly, the command is control plus ault plus either page up or page down, to make the voice speak slower or faster. However, I can’t remember how to change the pitch and/or volume on the fly, without having to have to go into the options dialog all the time. Are there commands for doing this? Thanks.

Mike

 

Do you like disco? Do you like to shake your groove with New Wave, 90s Hiphop, Or today’s slammin hits? If so, check out my show every Wednesday night from 7 to 9 pm Eastern on ACB Radio Interactive at

You need to assign hotkeys for that within the keyboard manager in
jaws manager.

Hello. To change the rate of speech and have those settings preserved you can press ctrl-alt-Windows along with page-up or page-down.

I believe that Keyboard Manager may include some unassigned shortcut keys to perform settings for pitch and volume but I have not explored these functions in any real detail.

Hi Mike,
Insert + F2, then the letter "K" and hit enter.
Or Insert + J, for jaws menu, then open the utilities sub menu, then
the letter "K" for the keyboard manager.
BTW, its a bit advanced to change or assign new hotkeys, so better to
backup your current settings from the import export sub menu within
the utilities sub menu before making new changes, encase if you didn't
know how to revert them.
