Hi Richard,

 

Also a problem with IE but everything is a problem with that browser. I dislike Edge and Crome so not a concern. I’ll notify the Jaws folks to have them look into this when I find the time…

I can confirm it is likely a Firefox issue since Edge doesn’t say the word “all” before those items either.

But, since I use Firefox I went and checked and yes it does say all.

But, I use DuckDuckGo as my home page, so I never deal with that as I am not a fan of google.

This is the information I am also hearing. I hear the word all, or sounds like all. This is only within the pc curser, not the jaws cursor.

This sounds like not an issue with Jaws but an issue with the website. I have come across many websites where some word or string of characters is spoken which visually is not there, but it is somehow part of the websites code and Jaws picks it up. Have you tried a different browser like Chrome?

Having said this, I just went to Google.com and clicked on this item “How search works” and I don’t hear Jaws saying anything extra, here is a portion of that site from Jaws speech history, I use Chrome as my browser and I use Jaws 2019:

Hi Everybody,

 

Here is an odd one, I turn on my computer and went into my internet browser, Mozilla Firefox. My homepage is set to google.com and I was just going down to see if anything new is on this page and a link I haven’t noticed before, how search works, was found. I clicked on it to see what they say about how their search works and I’ve noticed a very disturbing issue. As I arrow down, I hear “all” before each link or section. What is this? How do I get jaws n ot to read or say all before all as I move down through this information? This is new to me, I hope someone understands what I’ve come across. This is not the “say all” command. I actually hear the word, all, as it comes to a new link or paragraph or section of information.

 

This is also same on Internet Explorer and I am to believe with all browsers.

 

Thanks again,

 

Rick
