    Type without using the keyboard (On-Screen Keyboard)


    Instead of relying on the physical keyboard to type and enter data, you can use On-Screen Keyboard. On-Screen Keyboard displays a visual keyboard with all the standard keys. You can select keys using the mouse or another pointing device, or you can use a single key or group of keys to cycle through the keys on the screen.

    On-Screen Topics in this section:

    • To change how information is entered into On-Screen Keyboard

    • To set On-Screen Keyboard to use audible clicks

    • To use a numeric key pad in On-Screen Keyboard

    • To enable text prediction in On-Screen Keyboard

    To change how information is entered into On-Screen Keyboard


    In On-Screen Keyboard:

    1. Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

    2. Click Options, and then, under To use the On-Screen Keyboard, select the mode you want:

    Typing mode

    Description

    Click on keys

    In clicking mode, you click the on-screen keys to type text.

    Hover over keys

    In hovering mode, you use a mouse or joystick to point to a key for a predefined period of time, and the selected character is typed automatically.

    Scan through keys

    In scanning mode, On-Screen Keyboard continually scans the keyboard and highlights areas where you can type keyboard characters by pressing a keyboard shortcut, using a switch input device, or using a device that simulates a mouse click.

    Notes

    • If you're using either hovering mode or scanning mode and accidently minimize On-Screen Keyboard, you can restore it by pointing to it in the taskbar (for hovering mode) or by pressing the scan key (for scanning mode).

    • If you're using a mouse click to select a key in the Scan through keys mode, the mouse pointer must be located over On-Screen Keyboard.

    • The keyboard layout changes in On-Screen Keyboard depending on the language displayed in the active program.

    To set On-Screen Keyboard to use audible clicks


    You can have On-Screen Keyboard make an audible click when a key is pressed.

    Open On-Screen Keyboard:



    1. Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

    2. Click Options, select the Use click sound check box, and then click OK.

    To use a numeric key pad in On-Screen Keyboard

    1. Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

    2. Click Options, select the Turn on numeric key pad check box, and then click OK.

    To enable text prediction in On-Screen Keyboard


    When text prediction is enabled, as you type, On-Screen Keyboard displays a list of words that you might be typing.

    1. Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

    2. Click Options, select the Use Text Prediction check box, and then click OK.

    Notes

    • Text prediction is only available in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. To enable text prediction in a specific language, you must first install additional language files for that language. For more information, see Install or change a display language in Help.

    • Text prediction isn't included in Windows 7 Home Basic.

    Hear text read aloud with Narrator


    Windows comes with a basic screen reader called Narrator, which reads text on the screen aloud and describes some events (such as an error message appearing) that happen while you're using the computer.

    Narrator topics in this section:

    • Narrator Keyboard Shortcuts

    • Choose which text Narrator reads aloud

    • Change the Narrator voice

    • Start Narrator minimized

    • Narrator doesn’t read what I expect it to

    • I can’t hear any text read aloud by Narrator

    Narrator is not available in all languages, so if the steps below don’t work, Narrator is not available for your language.

    1. Open Narrator by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking Narrator.

    Narrator doesn't read what I expect it to


    This topic provides information about problems you might run into when using Narrator.

    • Narrator doesn't read what I expect it to read. Narrator provides basic screen-reading capabilities that allow you to use Windows when you don't have a more full-featured screen reader. Narrator is not designed to read content in all programs. For more information about screen readers and other assistive technologies, go to the Microsoft Accessibility website www.microsoft.com/enable.

    • Narrator doesn't read notifications or the contents of some folders. Narrator can't read notifications because notifications can't be selected. For the same reason, it can't read the contents of some folders.

    • Narrator doesn't read some Help topics. Narrator can't read the text that appears below collapsed headings in Help topics. To read the text of Help topics with collapsed headings, tab to the Show all link at the top of the topic and press Enter to expand all the topics. Then press Ctrl Shift Spacebar to have Narrator read the window again.

    Note

    • Narrator is not available in all languages.

    I can't hear any text read aloud with Narrator


    Here are some things to try if you're having trouble hearing text read aloud by Narrator:

    • Make sure that your speakers are connected properly. If you're not sure how to do this, check the information that came with your speakers.

    • Make sure that the speaker volume is turned up sufficiently and your speakers aren't muted.

    • Make sure that your sound card is properly installed and the drivers are updated.

    To check for a sound card


    1. Open Audio Devices and Sound Themes by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Sound.

    2. Your sound card is listed on the Playback tab.

      If you don't have a sound card installed, you'll have to get one for Narrator to work.


    To determine if the sound card is working


    1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Systems and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.

      If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.





    2. If the sound card has a yellow question mark next to it, the sound card might not be working. Try reinstalling the sound card driver. For more information, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly, in Help.

    3. If the sound card appears twice in the list, you might have a ghost device. If so, delete the entry with the question mark.
    Narrator does not read some Help topics

    Narrator cannot read the text that appears below collapsed headings in Help topics. To read the text of Help topics with collapsed headings, tab to the Show all link at the top of the topic and press ENTER to expand all the topics. Then press CTRL SHIFT SPACEBAR to have Narrator read the window again.

    The INSERT key doesn’t work as expected when Narrator is running


    The INSERT key is used for Narrator commands, so when you press INSERT while Narrator is running, you won’t be able to insert characters. To use the INSERT key to insert characters while Narrator is running, press INSERT I and then the characters you want to add.

    Text to speech: frequently asked questions


    Here are some answers to common questions about text-to-speech programs.

    Note that Narrator is not available in all languages.



    Can on-screen text be read aloud to me?

    Yes, Narrator and other programs read aloud text, buttons, menus, file names, and other items on the screen—even keystrokes. This can be helpful for people who don't see the screen or have difficulty seeing the screen.



    Does Windows include a text-to-speech program?

    Yes. It's called Narrator. It's adjustable in many ways and can make the computer easier to use. For more information, see Hear text read aloud with Narrator in Windows Help.



    Can any computer read text aloud?

    Nearly any computer can be set up to read text aloud. Make sure your computer has a functioning sound card, and that you meet the basic requirements. For more information, see Troubleshoot Narrator problems in Help.



    Are there other text-to-speech programs?

    Yes, there are several. For a list of text-to-speech programs, go to the Microsoft Accessibility website www.microsoft.com/enable.
