Re: Equivalent to Jaw's Screen Echo
My only disagreement with Steve’s description is that when you set the JAWS screen echo to “all” it does not automatically speak the contents of the screen.
This is not particularly detailed but here is the relevant description taken from the JAWS help system:
This option allows you to select what information is echoed when text on the screen changes.

Essentially, it does exactly as described earlier down the thread.
When you enable it, it echoes the whole screen once. Then it monitors for changes and echoes them.
This is very useful for accessibility testing. It’s probably not a mainstream feature that everyone could use, but it would be helpful to have it.
All the best

Perhaps what would be helpful here would be for someone familiar with the Jaws feature, to please describe how it works for the user? Ok, so I'm a user, I have a program which doesn't seem to be accessible, I launch this feature.... what does it do?
With a number of features, it may be that there is a solution to a problem, and it may or may not be identical to the way Jaws does it, and I think sometimes we get stuck on "this is what Jaws does, I want it to work the same", rather than "this is the problem I'm trying to solve, is there a solution"?
