Jumbled Text Challenge

13 of 15

The Jumbled Text Challenge is designed to give you practice selecting, cutting, deleting, and pasting text without using your monitor to visually see the screen if you are sighted. The exercise begins when you reach the text in the edit box on the right.

There are 30 blank lines in the text edit box so the text to be modified in the practice is not in view visually when the page first loads. No cheating! Do not scroll to view the text visually!

NOTE: To re-read the selected text while JAWS is running press SHIFT+INSERT+DOWN ARROW.

The beginning of the exercise starts with the following text:

This is the beginning of the Jumbled Text Challenge.

  3. Press SHIFT+TAB to move back to the "Stop Timer" button, and then activate it with the SPACEBAR.
