Re: Edit Field With Brave Browser Question Please.

Hi Janet,
Check your typing echo setting in Brave, it's possible you changed the setting accidentally.  Press, Insert + 2, on the number row to toggle through the options.  The typing echo options are, character, words, both characters and words and none.
Hold down the, Insert key, and tap the, 2 key, stopping on the option you want.
In Jaws 2021 the, Insert + spacebar, then pressing, S, toggles speech between, Speech on demand, and Full speech.  You'll have to experiment with this to get the hang of the way the 2 settings work.
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

HI Gene,
Ok, I tried both methods, and I get the exact same results.  Didn't JAWS always read text as default? I will be very disappointed if there is no solution, as I love using Brave as my browser, but I just can't stand hearing JAWS always reading every key I press though.  I wonder why would I now start having this problem with JAWS and the edit field though.

One method is to turn off speech, type, then turn it on again.  To turn off
speech, the command is JAWS key space, followed by the letter s.  The same
command again turns speech on again.

It sounds to me as though there is no setting that will solve the problem.
My guess is that what is happening is that when you type, the letter is
appearing as a selected or highlighted letter.  JAWS is announcing it as it
appears because JAWS reads selected text by default.

As I consider the problem, there may be another way to solve the problem.
JAWS key s switches between three options.  The default is highlighted and
it is the one you would usually use.  All is another option and none is
another.  Use the command to move to none and see what happens when you
type.  them move to highlighted after you finish.

Subject: [TechTalk] Edit Field With Brave Browser Question Please.

Hi All,
Just  for a few weeks maybe a month, everytime I type a search in the edit
field using Brave, it keeps typing every letter as well as every word.  This
is driving me crazy.  I have searched in the Brave settings, I've turned off
audo complete to see if that would make a difference, I've checked JAWS 2021
Echo settings, and he is set to speak nothing as I type, but nothing seems
to make a difference.  Can someone please give me some suggestions as to how
I might rectify this issue before I pull out my hair.  This current issue is
happening on Win 7 as well as Win 10.

Thank you in advance.


Peace Be With You.
