Thanks Mary, 

I couldn’t believe how much stuff is in the Settings Center. There are also keyboard shortcuts for many of the things you mentioned as well to quickly toggle them on and off.

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.
