Hi,
Here, I don't use headphones, but I know it bothers them.

Evidently the screen too, because I keep a headset on unless I show him some
of the funny talk people have sent, which he thoroughly enjoys.

Best from,

I know that my husband and my son can work better with JAWS off than
with JAWS on.

If you are using browse mode, the screen-reader reformats the page for
logical reading. I believe you can change settings so that the
sighted person does or does not see these changes but I'm not sure and
I'm not sure if the setting affects everything.

If you are not using browse mode, that is, if you are in My Computer
or Windows Explorer, for example, the screen-reader doesn't change
what is seen in terms of what is selected and shown as such. Some
screen-readers turn off many visual effects if they are on but that is
not changing where things are shown on screen nor if something is
highlighted, etc. it has to do with visual effects that I don't know
enough about to discuss.

Genemore or less ornamentation or visual indicators of . However, the
screen-reader turns off many visual effects if they are on.

The three screen readers do not modify anything visually on the screen
as you navigate. I believe that window-eyes does have a setting that
will highlight words as the cursor navigates the page. This feature is
helpful if a sited person is trying to figure out where you are on the
screen. I have had problems before where i was trying to show somebody
sited something on the screen but they could not see it. The reason
was that the page did not scroll down with the screen reader focus.
that could be an issue you may run into when asking a sited person for
help.

I hope to get answers to the below questions for Window-eyes 9.2,
Jaws 16,
and also for NVDA.

On occasion I ask my grand daughter about something on the screen.
So when
using any of the above screen readers, does the screen reader in any
way alter the appearance of the screen content? So for example, if
Window-eyes says that internet explorer is highlighted, would whoever
is looking at the screen agree with this assessment? Are their
situations where the visual appearance differs from what the screen reader
states?

Thanks.
