Have you tried turning the rotor to languages, And then flicking up and down and choosing the language that you want. First before you do this, you need to make sure that languages is selected in the rotor. If you need anymore assistance on this, feel free to Skype me and I will assist you.

> Hi All! How are you all? I just wanted to ask you, since we are talking about languages, I actually have an issue in changing the languages on my iPhone. Before I use to have on my rotor on my phone, languages,  where it showed the languages the VoiceOver languages that I pick from the Language and region, but  now  they are not there on my phone. All of this started, when  i went to the Apple Store and they did a reset to my phone, all of my Languages where disactivated on my phone. Now when I go to settings and go to languages and region in ordr to pick the languages I want  for my phone, I find the lanuage I want and then i add the new lanuage in order to use it, but for some reason I can't use it. On my phone, i use to have, English UK and Spanish, but now I can't use them, and they are actually VoiceOver Languages. I really don't know why my languages are not working on my phone. Do you know how can I fix this issue? I'm just wondering since i don't know how to guys!  I will really appreciate it if you could help me with this! since it use to work before. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks so much and God bless!

>> Please forgive me for being totally off-topic for a moment, but what language is your email signature in? I'm asking because I just noticed that it was in a different set of characters than our alphabet, and you're a native English speaker as far as I know.  So this is really strange that you would write your signature in a completely different language.  Oh, and I'm also asking because I'm a language freak.

>> Ana (and others), I can answer you for the Spanish thing.  I don't have a BrailleSense, but I do use both JAWS and VO.  To change the JAWS language to Spanish, go to the JAWS window, press the Altogether key to go to the menu bar, then press the down arrow twice until you here "Voices." Press enter on that option, then press tab 3 times until you get to "Synthesiser language." Press enter, then the down arrow until you get to the Spanish option.  (Note: JAWS  will say it with a Spanish accent, but you should be able to understand).
>> Now to do it using Voiceover, go to Settings, General, Language and region, Espanol (which means Spanish in Spanish).
>> 
>> And yes, I do agree with others that you have to learn the accented letters in Braille.  I don't think that should be much of a problem.  I also know how to write those accents, and I don'! want to clutter the list seeing as the first part of my message is probably off-topic, so if you'd like I can tell you how to write the accents off-list.

>> Hi Anna,

>> I am not sure why JAWS is reading "misspelled" before the words that are spelled incorrectly.  I never had that problem when I used JAWS.  You might want to check your verbosity settings (insert V).  As for why it would do it in Firefox and not IE, I have no idea.  I'm not sure you can select non-consecutive lines using JAWS.  I have never actually come across any way to do it, but I will check for you.  With your third question, I can definitely help.  I took Spanish in middle school an high school and found it very easy.  You can put JAWS in Spanish, as well as several other languages.  I can look up how to change languages on the Braille Sence, but I'm sure there is a way to do it.  You will need to learn the braille symbols used for letters with accent marks.  If you like, I can e-mail them to you off-list, as well as detailed instructions on how to put JAWS, your iPhone and your Braille Scense in Spanish.  Sorry I couldn't help much with your other questions, but I hope my Spanish advice helped.
