Re: JAWS keeps speaking the progress of streams

Hello Sieghard:

No! When I return to the desktop or move to another open window, the progress messages for the audio stream are no longer spoken. This problem is a recent one.

To mute and unmute speach in JAWS 14, you press JAWS KEY+SPACE BAR, followed by the letter S.

The layered keystroke you describe I don't think was available yet in Jaws 14, but I am not entirely certain since I used Jaws 14 a very long time ago, even have to think, in the fall of 2017 Jaws 2018 came out, so Jaws 18 was in 2016, Jaws 17 in 2015 so Jaws 14 would have been released in the fall of 2012. There would have been a keystroke to mute Jaws I think, just not sure if it was the layered keystroke or just Jaws Key+S, also, does the time elapsed still speak if you move focus away from the browser window?

Hi Dave,

I have two ideas, but someone else may know others. First you can press the JAWSKey plus the letter S and cycle through what JAWS will say. The choices are all, none and highlighted. Mine has always defaulted to highlighted.
That will stop it saying the numbers as they advance.

Or you could use the layered keystroke JAWSKey then space and then S. This has the choices of speech on demand and full speech. Remember with both of these once you are done with the streaming, you will have to reset them.

Hope this helps!

Debby

Hello everyone:

On my HP laptop, I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 14. When I am listening to streamed audio from any of the radio stations on the BBc web site, JAWS keeps announcing the elapsed time of any streamd audio I am listening too.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can stop JAWS from doing this.

Thanks in anticipation.
