Re: Recent Jaws issue with typing and focus jumping around

I had the jumping around problem for ages, regardless of whether there was a touchpad or not, turned off turned on it doesn't seem to matter.

Good point about the touchpad on laptops. Mine is also
turned off. However some laptops also have a touchstick,
located between the F, G, V, and B keys. This also can be
touched accidentally if it's not disabled. I'm mentioning
this for anyone with a laptop to be aware.

David:



My mousepad is turned off, and has always been turned off
since I started using this particular laptop, and I still
occasionally experience the typing focus problem in Outlook
2016 when composing an e-mail.



I haven’t been able to identify a pattern regarding the
occurrence of the problem; it just seems to occur randomly
for no apparent reason.



I’m using Windows 7 and Jaws 17 here.

Good morning;

Here's a silly question, regarding the behavior you're
experiencing,

Do you have the mousepad turned off?

If you're using a laptop?

I'm using both jaws 17&18, windows 10, office 2016, and
mousepad is turned off, I have never experienced this
behavior.



Merry Xmas to all.



Enjoy the Holiday's.

I don’t think it’s exclusive to outlook 2010 or jaws 18. I
have jaws 17 and using outlook 2016, and I have that focus
issue as well.

I’m typing in an email, whatever I wrote at the end, or the
middle, for example, I find it at the top of the email some
times, or somewhere else other than where it should be. It
began just recently, so I just compose my emails from word
and send it that way, since that doesn’t occur in word..

Hello list,

So I don’t know what I may have done, but for the last few
days, I have been experiencing an incredibly annoying issue
with Jaws and composing Outlook messages.

When I begin to type, the first few letters are spoken by
jaws even though I’ve always had this setting to echo speech
off. The more frustrating thing is that focus will jump
around and what I type is spread out all over the document.
This is especially annoying when I’m working off a template
text and have to go hunt for the stray letters.

The thing is, if I type the first couple of letters and then
erase them, everything works fine.

I have to believe that in all my typing, I must have
accidentally enabled some sort of odd setting since this has
only been a recent issue and I don’t experience it in a
standard Word document. Only in Outlook messages. My version
of Outlook is 2010 and my messages are set to HTML. I am
using the most recent version of Jaws 18.

Does anyone have an idea of what may be causing this issue
or what setting I might try to change to fix it? That or is
there some sort of set to default setting in Outlook for
composing messages?

Thanks,
