Re: How to make jaws read number of items

i don't know when this happened. grin.
but if i change the file view to the detailed view i get the index numbers i guess you call it.
if i right arrow once then arrow down it will announce the item number like 1 of 100 as i arrow down the list. but it is the last thing announced.
i looked in the speech verbocity and beginner options and announce item numbers was already checked. so i did not make any changes there.

Nope! Not for me in JAWS 2018...

It does not read it when you simply arrow down or up through the list of
files.

I went to my "my documents" folder and pressed insert+tab and this is what I
heard:
Not Selected 2016Low-Vision Expo images‎8/‎22/‎2018 ‏‎5:29 AM File folder 1
of 885

Jaws 2019, Windows 10

But, Window-Eyes would have read the index number automatically.

I also have this situation. It appears that somehow a maximum of 13 is the
count in any Folder where I have many additional files.

If I pres Enter + T it reads the file name and whatever it's place in 13.
And, when I press Enter + Tab I hear the same.

Thanks.

I hope this works in your case.

I used to use window eyes. It would read the number if items in a
folder after reading off a file name. Is there a way to do this in
jaws? Right now jaws only reads item names in file explorer not how
many items there afterwards

Thanks
