Robin, no question, JAWS has made what used to be a simple task difficult, and I have no idea why. It would help if you explained exactly what you want to do.
Meanwhile, first, you can select "punctuation" in the JAWS quick settings dialog. I realize this isn't exactly customizing punctuation, but maybe changing this setting when you go to that application will give you some flexibility. Second, David Ferrin, one of this list's moderators, posted instructions a while ago that just might help, even though at first they might seem only indirectly related to your query. My guess is to skip the "navigate to default" step: Assigning A Keystroke To Adjust Punctuation On The Fly. 1. Press, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws Manager. 2. Go to Keyboard Manager and press enter. 3. Navigate to Default, & then tab 1 time to get into the list of options. 4. In the Default keyboard manager list navigate to Set Punctuation Level If it says none. That means there has not been a keystroke assigned. 5. Press the Alt key to open the menus, & right arrow to Action. Then down arrow to Add Keystroke, & press enter. Or press control + A which is the shortcut for assigning a keystroke. 6. Insert a keystroke combination like control + dash for example. If the combination is already being used for another command jaws will tell you. Doing this in the Default Keyboard Manager, allows this keystroke to be used in all applications. 7. Tab to the Okay button, press the spacebar, then a dialogue will open asking if you are sure you want to modify the default JKM. Press the spacebar on the Yes option. Now, every time you press the control + dash keystroke it changes the punctuation level. So press the control + dash keystroke until you hear the punctuation level you want. If you ever want to change or remove the keystroke, simply repeat the above steps. -----Original Message----- From: JAWS-Users-List <jaws-users-list-boun...@jaws-users.com> On Behalf Of Robin Sent: Friday, March 02, 2018 5:32 PM To: jaws list <email@example.com> Subject: [JAWS-Users] I wont to chane the star Punctuation to say something else Can anyone help. When I Choose Customize Punctuation it says This setting is only available in the Default/All Applications Is there anyway you can do it just for one program. I just want to change one individual punctuation to say something in one application not every program. Many thanks.
