I forgot to put the word in there. I can’t believe I did that. Thanks for the correction.

You press insert + then the letter r. You can look up words, books from
Bookshare, zip codes, and more.

press insert+space bar, hear the "bloop sound", then press r for research
there are many choices to choose from.
for example the weather choice, type in your city and state, tab once and
type w until you get to weather or down arrow to weather and press enter.
in a few seconds, the information will show up in a virtual window where you
can navigate thru it as if it were a document.

Anyone tried using ResearchIt after the January update to JAWS 2019? It now
uses your default browser instead of deferring to Internet Explorer. Well I
use Google Chrome as my default, and now ResearchIt fails to work with any
of the searches. See if anyone agrees.

I would love to see the addition of Batch Scan support for convenient OCR.

The Jaws 2019 January update was just released this morning, version
2019.1901.66, maybe see if it makes a difference in Word. The main
new feature which was added is a new option in the Jaws menu to
sample, add and remove Vocalizer voices, here is the direct download
link for the universal 32 and 64 Bit installer and the what's new

Jaws 2019.1901.66 direct download link


Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1901.66 (January 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between
the December 2018 update and the January 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page . You
must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices

This new utility included in the latest releases of JAWS, ZoomText,
and Fusion provides a solution to seamlessly sample and install or
remove the Vocalizer

Expressive 2 voices used by all three products. This avoids the need
to download anything from external pages and makes the entire
process much easier across all products. And remember, once voices
are set up for one product, there is no need to install them again
for the other products.

From the JAWS main window, press ALT+O to open the Options menu,
expand the Voices submenu, and then select Add/Remove Voices to open
the Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices utility.

This dialog includes:

. Language specific list of currently available Vocalizer Expressive
2 Premium voices.

. Ability to select and Install as many voices as you would like
right from the list.

. See what voices are already installed as you review the list.

. Hear a sample of the currently focused voice in the list before
deciding if you want to select it to be installed. To play a sample,
just press ALT+P while focused on the voice name in the list.

. Option to uninstall one or more voices.

. Option to uninstall all voices.

. Option to uninstall only the compact voices that had been
previously installed.

Note: If you remove a voice that is currently in use, your JAWS,
Fusion, or ZoomText will continue to speak using that voice until
you restart the software or reboot the computer. Once you restart,
it will default to the next profile available.

If there are no more Vocalizer Expressive Voices available, JAWS and
Fusion will default back to Eloquence.

In JAWS and Fusion, after installing a premium voice, a profile is
created for each of those new individual voices which can be further
customized using the Voice Adjustment dialog box. You can also
easily switch between all the new voices by pressing CTRL+INSERT+S
to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog box, pressing the first
letter of the voice you want to use, and then pressing ENTER. If you
prefer not to have a profile generated for each installed voice,
open the Voice Adjustment dialog box and clear the "Enable
Additional Voice Profiles for installed Vocalizer Expressive 2
voices" check box so that only the standard Vocalizer Expressive
factory and user profiles are listed.

If you find that compact voice collections had previously been
installed, there is also an option to remove all compact voices.
This is especially beneficial for users of Fusion or ZoomText 2018
or later which installs dozens of the compact voices by default. If
you do not need all of these voices and languages, this makes it
easy to remove all compact voices at once.

Improved Kindle Support

We have made several improvements to performance when using JAWS
with the Kindle for PC app from Amazon. In particular, you can now
do the following while reading a book:

. Use U or SHIFT+U to move to the next or prior link in a book.

. Use N or SHIFT+N to move to the next or prior block of text that
is not a link.

. Use INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+NUM PAD 5 twice quickly to spell
the current line or word just like in other applications.

. Press INSERT+PAGE DOWN to read the Kindle status bar.

In addition, JAWS now announces when you move to a new page while

Other Changes

. In a Remote Desktop or Citrix connection, resolved an issue with
speech not being interrupted as expected when pressing CTRL or when

. JAWS now correctly reads emojis in messages you receive in Outlook.

. Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected when
attempting to select an address from the Autocomplete list in an
Outlook message.

. When switching views in the Outlook calendar, removed extraneous
speech so that only details for the current view are announced.

. You can now configure whether or not levels are announced when
navigating Word documents or Outlook emails, such as when moving in
and out of lists. To toggle this feature, open Quick Settings
(INSERT+V ) and navigate to "Outline Level Indication."

. If you hear the buzzer sound while typing in Word or Outlook to
indicate a misspelled word, when you manually correct or delete the
word, JAWS now plays a ding sound to indicate the error has been
corrected. With this feature enabled, JAWS also indicates spelling
errors in documents as you navigate. If you prefer not to have JAWS
indicate misspellings as you navigate, or you want to know about
spelling errors, but you do not want to be alerted as you

type and make a correction, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ), turn
off the "Spelling Buzzer on mistyped words" option, and then you
will be able to configure the "Spelling Error Detection" setting.

. When attempting to insert a symbol in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint,
resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while
navigating the available symbols.

. Resolved issues with table navigation as well as columns not being
reported correctly in certain non-uniform tables in Word

. When doing a Say All ( INSERT+DOWN ARROW ) in Word 2013, addressed
a customer reported issue where text was being skipped if a page
break was encountered.

. Links selected in Research It results now open in the user's
default web browser.

. Resolved a reported issue where position information in lists was
not being announced as expected when the "Announce Position and
Count when navigating in lists" option in the Configure Verbosity
Levels section of Settings Center was disabled. When this option is
off, JAWS should only announces position information when the list
first gains focus or when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB .

. Resolved customer reported issues in Adobe Reader where JAWS was
repeating table column titles multiple times and was not always
reading the first line of a new page if the previous page ended with
a list.

. Addressed a reported issue in Adobe Reader where keystrokes such
as CTRL+PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to move by page were not working in
certain PDF documents.

. Addressed a reported issue where JAWS language auto detection was
not working in PDF documents.

. Addressed an issue in Chrome where bulleted list items were being
shown with the bullet on a separate line from the content.

. When you activate the JAWS Quick Keys mode in Google Docs (
INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q ), you can now press M or SHIFT+M to move to
the next or previous spelling error. In addition, you can now press
QUESTION MARK to display help for this layer.

. Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while
navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual
Ribbons in Office.

. Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite

. JAWS now includes a Czech language braille table which can be
selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

JAWS2019 is struggling with Word for me, as well sometimes it
reports that

a page is blank, when NVDA and Narrator can read a pageful of text.

Unload/reload is the only solution I have found.

Hello, For some reason I will be in Word 2016 and Outlook 2016. I'm
using Windows10 and Jaws 2018. I will flip back and forth between word
and outlook. Eventually Jaws has a hard time reading when I arrow up

down. Sometimes I can read the line and sometimes it cannot. Many

I cann't even move word by word. I can unload Jaws and reload and the
problem goes away for a few minutes. Then it comes back and unloading
Jaws doesn't work. I then have to close out of everything and reboot.
What could be causing this problem.
Microsoft accessibility cannot determine what is causing the problem.
