Jaws Uppdate

I just installed the update with no trouble.

They still haven’t fixed the issue where jaws reads punctuation when it is set to none.

Hi Pastor Gil,
 
Where do you have punctuation set to, None, and it's not reading correctly? Read the note below.
 
Note:
This is a note on the difference between changing punctuation settings in Jaws quick settings, Insert + V, & customize punctuation in the Settings Center default all applications.  They work backwards from one another.
 
When setting punctuation in Jaws quick settings, this controls the amount of
punctuation JAWS will speak / recognize.  The default setting is most.  To hear less
punctuation spoken you would select some or none.
 
When making changes in the customize punctuation list, this basically tells Jaws how much of a selected punctuation mark to ignore.  If you do not want
Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you want to choose the
" all " selection.  You will have 4 radio buttons to arrow up or down
through.  They are none, some, most, & all.  In these selections they work
backwards than what you would think.  For example;  If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading.  On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.
 
Summary:  In short the Jaws quick settings tells Jaws what punctuation to recognize / speak, & in the Settings Center default all applications / Customize
Punctuation settings, tells Jaws what punctuation to ignore / not speak.  Hence, they work backwards from each other.
 
Hope this helps some of you understand the differences between the 2
punctuation setting options.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.
