Re: JAWS blackboard discussion board

Hi Karrah,


I currently use it at Capella University.

There are links to create, and view post.

Buttons to get to previous, and next discussions.

Checkboxes to get to individual post within a given persons post with reply buttons at the end of each post.

There is an okay button at the very bottom of the current persons post to get out of that post taking you back to the list of post for the given discussion matter.

Hi all,


The following issue was brought up on another list and was subsequently confirmed:


If hardware keyboard input suggestions is turned on, JAWS will announce “Microsoft Candidate UI” when you type text.


To resolve this:


  1. Open Settings (Windows+I)/Devices/Typing.
  2. Go to hardware keyboard grouping and turn off “Show text suggestions as I type” option (Version 1803 will show it as a different option).
