I think it might be more accurate to say that it is a Windows issue giving jobs problems. :-)

No verbosity setting has no bearing. This is a jaws issue over many versions.

I, for one, can't remember when i last heard that one. I'm currently using the beta with my verbosity set to intermediate, I wonder if that has anything to do with it? I've been using that setting for longer than I can remember.

So you never hear "Jaws has lost focus. Press alt plus tab"? Is announce lost focus turned off in settings? I have been using Jaws for over 25 years on dozens of systems and it has always happened more than it should. It got better for wile then came back and will get better again.

To be fair though it is most likely Windows pulling Jaws focus to some temporary notification or something like that.

I'm using jaws2020, with Windows 10 home.
I also have a computer running windows10 pro, that I'm using jaws2020 with, and neither one have exhibited this issue

Hi Ron,

I'm not experiencing this issue.

Could you tell us more about your system?

What version of the Operating system are you running?
Is it the home or pro version?
Is your jaws up-to-date?

To my fellow subscribers.
Every time I turn around I hear Lost focus, press alt tab.
I hope this bug is fixed when 2021 is released.
Many thanks.
