Re: Jaws doesn't speak new output in command prompt as it appears

Hi Tony and Bill,

Here's the solution to your problem:-

Go into a command line.

Press Alt-Space then down to Properties.

In there, make sure that Legacy Console is ticked.

Now JAWS should be happier about reading the command line.

Good luck.

All the best

Steve

Hi, Tony. Which version of Windows are you using. I am having the same problem with Command prompt. The only thing I could is to use Narrator during command prompt operations. Incidentally, the same thing occurs in Power Shell.

Subject: Jaws doesn't speak new output in command prompt as it appears

Hello listers,

I work a lot in command prompt window (also known as console/terminal) in Windows. Some time ago, probably a few months ago, Jaws stopped reading new output as it appears in the window. I can still get the current line by pressing Insert+8, or I can switch to Jaws cursor and read all the contents, but that's pretty inefficient, since I'd have to do it for every command that I type. Is this a bug in Jaws or is there a magic checkbox in Jaws settings that I need to check to make it to work?

I know there is one workaround for this: turning one "Use legacy console" checkbox in command prompt options solves the issue. That's what I have been using so far, but now I need to use a program that requires the new console.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Thank you
Tony
