You are entirely correct that the issues I was experiencing had nothing to
do with focus; I was confused about maintaining focus with ribbons, and
thought that that might help me out. The issue is within the calendar
section of the scheduling program which I am using, and it is a strange one.
I switched to the Brave browser and now the program works correctly for the
week of November 8-14, but not for the previous week--as I mentioned, very

Thank you to you and to all others who helped with suggestions.

I don't believe Greg is losing focus from the program, but rather from
within the program.

I only mean to suggest that this line of thinking probably won't lead to a
solution. Limited help, I know.

in which case, the only way to regain focus is to either hold down alt and
press tab until the program is spoken, and release the alt and tab keys, or
press insert+f10, arrow to the program in question and press enter. the
former is sort of a toggle, cycling thru what's running.

The lost focus setting determines whether JAWS announces that focus has been
lost. It doesn't fix the problem.

I vaguely remember some unnamed keystroke that one could use if Jaws has
lost focus; that keystroke rotored through various settings.

As the result of another reply, I have tried using Firefox, but unless I can
modify settings, Firefox was painfully slow in responding.  I haven't tried
Edge yet, and Chrome is the browser which is having difficulties with the

I'm not sure what you mean about Rotor keystrokes.  The only rotor
navigation I'm aware of is on an iPhone.  Have you tried using the Touch

Hi everyone,

I have a website-based question; I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 2020.

I am the primary admin for a Eucharistic adoration ministry in my parish,
and that ministry uses a web-based application called We Adore Him to
control adorer scheduling.  I have successfully used the software since
August 2018 and, after being shut down by COVID-19 since mid-March, we are
preparing to open the chapel again.  As a result, I have been assisting
adorers to choose an hour in the weekly calendar.
All went well until Wednesday, October 21, when the weekly calendar suddenly
would not display when I arrowed to it; it now displays the hour at
midnight, tells me that one slot is available, and when I arrow down in
order to go to a particular hour of the day, I am at the bottom of the

I am using the Jaws cursor which appears for all websites, and I have
checked to be sure that my screen is maximized and in full-screen mode in
Chrome.  A sighted tech-savvy friend has assisted me via Zoom and
screen-share, and she tells me that the full schedule, showing adorers
signed up for this or that hour--is showing on the screen.  I have contacted
On Fire Media to ask them if they have been testing and that might be the
reason for my issue, but they have not.  They are aware of Jaws and have a
demo copy to use.  I can navigate the screen in My Dashboard if I want to
update the settings in my account, but whenever I choose "Schedule", choose
the particular week, I only see the first entry.

I honestly don't know if this is a Jaws focus issue or something entirely
different.  Can you please remind me of the keystrokes for the rotor which a
user can look at in the case of a focus issue?  Or, alternatively, do you
have other suggestions?

I have tried everything I can think of.

Thank you for any ideas or suggestions,

Greg Daniel
