moderated Re: Jaws does not read the content of screen using jaws cursor.


 

I provided the steps in my original email where I said the first step was to open Jaws Settings Centre with Jaws Key + 6.
In the email you just replied to asking whether this is in Jaws or Windows I said " This is in Jaws Settings Centre with Default Settings loaded under Miscellaneous, here it is item 9 of 17, just before "Use virtual ribbon menu"."
So, yes, it is in Jaws Settings not Windows Settings and I would bet 20 Bucks that if you have indeed Jaws 2019 which you say you do I could show you in 5 seconds where it is and that in fact it is there.
I don't have a Windows 7 PC any more, but if that setting even exists there you should definitely not use it, GDI Hooking which is what you get when you uncheck the accessibility display driver, is not a thing in Windows 7 and if it did anything it probably wouldn't be good. I'll ask the Beta team about this, there are still people who run Windows 7.

Scripts? Not sure I get what you are saying.
This is in Jaws Settings Centre with Default Settings loaded under Miscellaneous, here it is item 9 of 17, just before "Use virtual ribbon menu".
If you don't have this item you may want to consider a Jaws repair, I am on the Jaws beta team and I have never heard of anybody who doesn't have this item, personally I have 5 computers at my business and a laptop at home and it's there on all of them. Did you by any chance uninstall the video display driver under Apps and Features? I assume maybe then you may not have this setting since there is no accessibility driver which can be toggled on or off.

yes, the option is not there with win 10, but it is with windows 7. i also loaded several other scripts and did the search with the same results. only one option is in the search results.

Do you make sure you have the default settings loaded?

Use Accessibility



Driver for Screen Capture checked, Miscellaneous






this option does not come up with my win10, jaws 2019 search results.







****



tab once and you should have the following two results:
Speak Access Keys Within Web Pages checked, Reading
Use Accessibility



Driver for Screen Capture checked, Miscellaneous not checked 4.
Press the spacebar on the second option, Use Accessibility Display
Driver" to clear the checkbox 5. Tab twice to OK and activate it.
6. Make sure you remember or keep these steps because you may find
that some applications work better with the old accessibility display
driver checked and some may work better when it is unchecked.
And there is a bit of good news, Vispero is working on restoring more
of the old Jaws cursor functionality with the new so-called GDI
hooking method which is basically what Jaws uses to get information
when the accessibility display driver is unchecked.
Lastly, you may want to try the touch cursor with your program and see
if you get anything with that, you can activate it by pressing Shift +
PC Cursor (Numpad +), press the PC cursor twice quickly to deactivate
the touch cursor again. You can read more about it here:
Jaws Help > Help topics > Using Jaws > About cursors > Using the Touch
cursor
