As a starting point on this list it would
be useful if people could list the programs they know work
well on their system with Jaws.
I can offer one tip to make it easier to
establish which app people have on their system. Someone might
have a better idea.
If you type or copy and paste the following
command into the windows R run dialogue,
and press enter
This will open a list view with all the
apps you have on your system.
You can simply arrow down to review then
Here you can press enter to run the app or
perhaps more usefully use the context key to create a shortcut
For our purposes here you simply have to
cursor down the list of aps, after about 10 apps open the Jaws
speech history with insert space , then H and you should see
the list of apps you have arrowed down in a form that you can
copy and paste into a notepad file by pressing control a and
then control c.
Alt tab back to your apps folder and
continue cursoring down for about 10 app, open speech history
history again and copy the resulting apps into your notepad
Continue until you have a file list of all
the apps on your system.
As I say someone else might have a more
In any case edit the Notepad file to delete
all the apps you know don’t work with Jaws.
Also you should probably delete any app
that you don’t know if they work with Jaws or if you don’t
want anybody else to know you have this app on your system.
I’ll try and do this as a starter list and
others can then add or criticise the resulting list I have.

David, even I was delighted to find that JAWS works on this
as it didn’t work on other apps I tried.
for having a resource which could provide us with the list
of JAWS accessible program, I think it will be immensely
useful. Perhaps we can put the programs/Apps names in an
excel and share it. May be we can give it versions so if any
one wishes to add any list of programs or apps names, they
can add these to the existing list and save it to the next
version and share it in this group.
it would work at least for the interim untill such a
resource is available through Vispero.
Very glad it worked– I did see this option
on the Microsoft Store but I was not sure you would be able
to use it. I am especially pleased it is accessible with
Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is
We need an Apple Vis type website with
category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are
confirmed to work with Jaws.
There is something called NVDA Road tested
Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed
to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are
accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.
There used to be a Programs page on the old
Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and
will not load here. Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will
not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if
anybody else knows of a similar resource?
VFO Should really host this for the
community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be
used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and
Idea David, I tried a world clock app on the Microsoft store
and it is accessible with JAWS and it groups different time
zones although I have to navigate few times to reach it.
Good part is that I can add more than five, not that I need
for the suggestion.
As a workaround have you tried separate
World Clock applications or Website?
Once you have set a website like this up
to your desired time zone you can set it up as a shortcut on
your desktop or even, with a bit of further fiddling and
editing of the shortcut, put it on the windows 10 Taskbar. Let
me know if you want instructions on this.
In terms of apps rather than websites I
think you will need to search for World Clock apps rather
than clock apps as normal clock applications will just provide
the standard feedback from the system time.

I did try to go to the clock after pressing Windows B and
then navigating to the system clock however it only provides
feedback for one clock and not the other one.
You probably cannot do
it with the JAWS F12 keystroke to check time, but if both
clocks appear on your System tray in the bottom right of
your screen, then you can try using Windows key B to get to
the system tray, then arrowing left or right to hear the
clocks. I usually find focus is at the far left of the
icons in the system tray, so it is fastest to arrow left and
focus will quickly circle around to the far right of the
icons where the standard system clock is.
Can I check time for two
time zones simultaneously using JAWS?
I have added two clocks however JAWS just
provides feedback for one of it so not sure how to access
time for the other one.
