Re: Quick Poll for JAWs users: Verbosity and Punctuationsettings.

I generally set verbosity to intermediate, and punctuation to Some. For what it is worth, I believe the JAWS defaults out of the box are beginner verbosity and most punctuation.

Subject: [WebAIM] Quick Poll for JAWs users: Verbosity and Punctuation settings.

Hi All,

Just doing a quick poll to try and figure out a minor question. What I am attempting to determine is what are your settings? Verbosity: Low, Medium or Beginner? Then Punctuation: All, Most, Some or None?

The question being considered is whether or not to include (parenthesis) in off-screen text: is there a value to doing so, or should I not bother?

Data and comments most appreciated.
