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
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 all.
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 file.
Continue until you have a file list of all the apps on your
As I say someone else might have a more elegant
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.

Yes David, even I
was delighted to find that JAWS works on this as it didn’t work on other apps
As 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.
Perhaps it would
work at least for the interim untill such a resource is available through
email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org> On Behalf Of David

Subject: Re: How to navigate between two clocks
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 improving.
We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of
programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed to work with
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
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
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 comments.
Good 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
Thanks for the
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
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

Yes 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
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.
