Hi folks,

Here's a hint or two that might be useful to people new to Jaws, or 
anyone who wants to cut down on speech chatter when typing. You can turn 
off typing echo. Go to the settings center, and open the user option 
which is the first item in the settings center menu. There is a variety 
of options to choose from; you can turn off typing echo by arrowing to 
that item and pressing space bar till it says "off." It's also handy to 
check "typing interrupt" so that it will stop talking when you start to 
type something. Unchecking "key repeat" is also handy. Usually if you 
hold down a key, Jaws repeats the announcement of the key name; turning 
off key repeat prevents this from happening.

When you're done, tab to the OK button and press enter to exit the 
settings center.
