Text Analyzer Group
When editing a document using speech only, inconsistencies
such as unmatched parentheses, unintentional format changes,
extra whitespace, and stray or unspaced punctuation can often
be missed. Text Analyzer is a tool that notifies you of these
errors in your document by using a spoken message or WAV file.
You can configure JAWS to announce discrepancies by count, by
description, or by sound while proofreading the document by
line, sentence, paragraph, or Say All command. Braille users
will benefit from this since a sound can be emitted before the
user has time to read the entire line looking for errors.

Search edit box type "text analyzer" without the quotes.
Press DOWN ARROW to move to Text Analyzer
in the filtered results. Press SPACEBAR to
select an alert notification.
- Use Quick Settings (INSERT+V). The
process for selecting an alert notification is the same as
the Settings Center procedure described above.
If multiple issues are identified in the document, press ALT+WINDOWS
Key+I to move to the next item, or ALT+SHIFT+WINDOWS
Key+I to move to the previous item. Note that these
keystrokes can still be used even if Text Analyzer is off.
