JAWS Power Tip: Using the Skim Reading Tool

Released: 3/18/2021

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows Tips.

We previously showed how to have JAWS announce the color of the text using the Voice Schemes.

The Skim Reading Tool is a more powerful way to complete this task.

In the previous method the person would need to read the entire document and pay attention to everything JAWS said.

The Skim Reading Tool will allow you to collect a list of everything that is highlighted in Yellow and then allow you to choose which one you wanted to view.

You can find the Skim Reading Tool in the JAWS Managers list under INSERT+F2.

Try looking for either colors or font attributes.

Once you go through the wizard you will want to use the button called Create Summary Button.

The Power of JAWS!
