In addition, Making the change in the Default settings file is more than likely not such a good idea. This is because if there are settings files for a particular software package, the settings in those settings files, will take priority over the settings in the Default settings file. Therefore, it is probably better to turn off the Smart Navigation function in the settings file for each of the browsers you use, to see if the change solves the problem. Only if there is not a settings file for a particulare software package, will the setting in the Default Settings file be used.

Hi, Joe. Something you may or may not know: Turning off Smart Navigation in the Setup Wizard, or even in JAWS Settings may not turn off Smart Navigation in the particular browser you are using. For best results, Open the browser, then go to Settings Center in JAWS, and check that Smart Navigation is actually turned off in the configuration file for the browser you are using. Then Close JAWS Settings Center, and save the configuration file for your browser.

Hi Ed,

 

I had already double checked both settings, and confirmed that it was off in both.

Hi Joe,

Silly question probably, but have you checked it's turned off in JAWS 2020 as well as JAWS 2021?

You’ll need to change the setting independently in each version of JAWS, assuming of course that you don’t migrate your settings from one version to another.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Ed,

 

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately it is already turned off. Also a clarification, I mentioned 2021, and it is not happening in that version, just 2020.

Hi Joe,

You need to turn off smart navigation mode.

Go into Settings Center with JAWS key+6.

Press shift+control+d to load the default settings.

In the search box, type "smart" and press tab to get to the search results.

Locate smart navigation mode and turn it off by pressing space.

Ok your way out of the dialog.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently started to encounter multiple situations, where I have multiple web elements being read by JAWS on one line, when I am navigating a site. I know this can be an issue in NVDA if you do not uncheck the check box for “Use Screen Layout”, as NVDA will read the inline content on one line. Is there something I can change in JAWS or is this a site issue? I am running the latest Win 10 and this is happening with the most up to date versions of Firefox and Chrome with the most up to date version of JAWS 2021 and 2020.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Joe
