Text console for development in JAWS?

0 votes
I'm working on a web application and I want to make it easy to use via screen reader. Testing stuff in JAWS is time consuming. Is it possible to make JAWS display text instead of reading it? I don't want actually to hear the content during development. I just want to see what would be read by JAWS.

There is no speech viewer for Jaws, as far as I know. However, you can make it write all speech output to a log file using the "/z" switch. Unfortunately, you cannot view the log file in a text editor while the screen reader is running, because it is locked. Open a command prompt or bring up the Run dialog by pressing Win+r and type: "jaws_executable" /z"log_file" Where "jaws_executable" is the full path and file name of the Jaws application and "log_file" is the location and name of the speech log file. Important: There should be no space between "/z" and the log file name.

This method doesnt work. I am using JAWS 2019 . Also there is no official document which assures the location of speech log file.

Hey @eatcodesleeprepeat, you could use Jaws Braille viewer for this purpose. It provides the textual representation of the output received on a refreshable braille device. The problem is it displays only 40 characters at a time. I'm not very sure about but you can check it out.
