Re: JAWS: Space Markers in Word

Hi all:

To fix the problem, go to the Home ribbon and as you tab across the ribbon you should find the setting for show markers; its probably going to be set on so activate it and it should close the problem.

I’m sorry I can’t be more specific as I’m currently using my Mac and away from a windows PC. If you can’t find it, give me a couple hours to check it.

I believe this is a Word setting where such signs are exposed.  Others will probably be able to tell you more about it.

Subject: [TechTalk] JAWS: Space Markers in Word

Thanks to those of you who responded to my previous query about JAWS. I’ve been trying the demo but discovered an annoyance that only happens in Word. When I hit the spacebar in a document, JAWS creates a space marker instead of showing an actual space. These markers show up on my braille display and are read by speech. Is there a setting I can tweak to get rid of them? Thank you in advance for any help.
