Re: JAWS for Windows version 16 latest update with Windows 8.1

Barbara Hansen <the2skibears@...>
 

I can't speak to this problem, but I have noticed that I am losing focus
when in my outlook 2010 program. This seems to be getting worse. I first
noticed this with the first update after jaws 16 was installed. It is
becoming very annoying to me.

Hello.



Has anyone else had the problem with JAWS for Windows version 16 latest
update and Windows 8.1 where if you open the file browser with "Windows key
+E" all I hear is selected. Instead of hearing things such as each
+drive
letter are each folder?



Thanks for your help in advance.

my function keys (insert f1 through 12), have stopped working on my keyboard

Ryan Coverdell
 

Windows 7,, jaws version 14. Somehow my function keys, (insert f1
through whatever), quit working. I can't exit web-pages (altogether
f4), unload Jaws (insert plus f4), or even restart my computer using
windows m and then altogether f 4 to get to the shut-down options. I
have a neighbor who can see, that could try some things. But before I
go to the trouble of finding out if he can do something I'd like to
try to do some things myself. Could one of you please e-mail what to
try and be as specific as possible. I don't want to completely mess up
anything. Kindest regards, Ryan Coverdell P.S. I hope
there's a simple reset command or something.

Did you look under the "help" menu "about JAWS"? Mine showed the new update
under that.

What's new in this release:



Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2339 (April 2015)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16
release on April 9, 2015, and the April 29, 2015 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.

JAWS
.For customers who use JAWS 16 and MAGic 13 together, we resolved an
issue that was discovered in the previous update where MAGic's Mouse
Echo feature was not working as expected when JAWS 16 was running.
.Worked with Smarter Balance Testing group in order to make some
adjustments in how JAWS is working with the tests being conducted in
many of the schools throughout the US.
.In addition to detecting math that is rendered using MathJax in
Internet Explorer, JAWS now detects Math content that is directly
included in the HTML of a web page in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
.The contents of the Math Viewer are now displayed visually on the screen.
The Math Viewer is accessed by pressing ENTER when JAWS encounters
math content on a web page. As the equation is navigated using the
ARROW keys, each expression or partial expression is highlighted so a
sighted assistant can easily track visually, what JAWS is speaking.
.Based on customer feedback, JAWS is now much more responsive when
reading long and complex mathematical expressions rendered by MathJax.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not recognizing math content
in Internet Explorer on Wikipedia when the Wikipedia user account was
set to render math using MathJax.
.Improved how JAWS pronounces various mathematical functions so they
are spoken using more natural language.
.The Technology News from CNET Research It lookup source now works as
it did in JAWS 15, displaying as many as 20 articles.
.If both JAWS and MAGic are running, resolved an issue where pressing
the Text Viewer toggle key on the MAGic Keyboard was not working.
.Resolved reported issues using the Find feature (CTRL+F) in FSReader.
.A customer reported that if focus was in a Windows security dialog
and speech was off, braille was not working as expected and JAWS was
creating several untitled voice profiles. This is now fixed.

Microsoft Excel
.When focused in the Font edit combo box, addressed a reported issue
where the location of the cursor was not being shown in braille.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the list of
column headers in the Sort dialog box.
.Addressed an issue where information was not being displayed
correctly in braille in certain spreadsheets when the braille mode was
set to Current Row.
.Addressed a reported issue with suggestions in the spell checker not
being read as expected.

Microsoft Internet Explorer
.If you are inside an application region on a web page in both
Internet Explorer and Firefox, it is now necessary to press the PC
cursor command (NUM PAD PLUS) twice quickly to turn off Forms mode and
return to the Virtual PC cursor. This change was made to keep users
from inadvertently leaving Forms mode while interacting with controls
inside application regions which require Forms mode remain active and
is similar to having to press the PC cursor command twice quickly to
turn
off the Touch cursor.
.Resolved issues with JAWS reading links and other content on web
pages marked as hidden and not meant to be read by screen readers.
.Resolved an issue where changes to the Graphical Links setting were
not being saved when configured through the Personalized Web Settings
group in Quick Settings.

Microsoft Outlook
.When navigating the tree view of folders in Outlook 2010, resolved an
issue where the number of unread messages in the selected folder was
not being announced automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue with the last message in an Outlook 2013 folder
being announced and shown in braille even after deleting the message.
.Addressed a customer reported issue with the keystrokes to read
header information not working as expected in Calendar appointments.
These keystrokes include ALT+1 for the From field, ALT+2 for the Sent
field, ALT+3 for the To field, and so on.
.Resolved a reported issue where the number of unread messages in the
selected folder was not being shown in braille in the Go to Folder
dialog box.

Microsoft Word
.Resolved issues with JAWS not reading as expected in Word 2013 when
using
CTRL+UP or DOWN ARROW to read by paragraph, ALT+UP or DOWN ARROW to
CTRL+read by
sentence, and ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys to navigate in tables.
.If the fields in a Word form contain F1 help, resolved an issue where
JAWS would speak the entire prompt for the current form field every
time a character was typed. This only occurred in Word 2013.
.JAWS will now read as expected when encountering an Excel spreadsheet
embedded in a Word document.
.Resolved an issue with JAWS not spelling the selected item in the
Suggestions list in the Word 2013 Proofing pane. The INSERT+F7 command
to read and spell the current suggestion now also works as expected
when focused in the list of suggestions.
.Resolved an issue reported by customers in Spain using Word 2007
where search results were not being spoken automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue where the message indicating that a document
contains headers or footers was not being shown in braille.

Mozilla Firefox
.Improved JAWS detection of headings that are inside table captions.
.Addressed a situation where an ARIA region on a web page could appear
blank after a page update.
.Addressed an issue with JAWS not detecting changes in the language on
combo boxes.
.In response to a customer, pressing INSERT+F in Firefox to receive
font information will now indicate web loaded fonts.

WordPad
.Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not reading the table
of contents section of an RTF file opened in WordPad.
.A customer reported an issue with JAWS not reading web addresses in
WordPad. This is now resolved.

Take care.

How Do I Get Jaws To Read The Scan Results On Vipre

Ameen Ahmed <thelegendofzelda17@...>
 

Hello,



I use Vipre as my anti-virus software and I don't know how
to make Jaws and another screen reader called Window Eyes to read the scan
results on Vipre. Do any of you people know how to make Jaws and Window
Eyes read the scan results on Vipre?



Ameen

What's new in this release:



Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2339 (April 2015)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16
release on April 9, 2015, and the April 29, 2015 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.

JAWS
.For customers who use JAWS 16 and MAGic 13 together, we resolved an
issue that was discovered in the previous update where MAGic's Mouse
Echo feature was not working as expected when JAWS 16 was running.
.Worked with Smarter Balance Testing group in order to make some
adjustments in how JAWS is working with the tests being conducted in
many of the schools throughout the US.
.In addition to detecting math that is rendered using MathJax in
Internet Explorer, JAWS now detects Math content that is directly
included in the HTML of a web page in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
.The contents of the Math Viewer are now displayed visually on the screen.
The Math Viewer is accessed by pressing ENTER when JAWS encounters
math content on a web page. As the equation is navigated using the
ARROW keys, each expression or partial expression is highlighted so a
sighted assistant can easily track visually, what JAWS is speaking.
.Based on customer feedback, JAWS is now much more responsive when
reading long and complex mathematical expressions rendered by MathJax.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not recognizing math content
in Internet Explorer on Wikipedia when the Wikipedia user account was
set to render math using MathJax.
.Improved how JAWS pronounces various mathematical functions so they
are spoken using more natural language.
.The Technology News from CNET Research It lookup source now works as
it did in JAWS 15, displaying as many as 20 articles.
.If both JAWS and MAGic are running, resolved an issue where pressing
the Text Viewer toggle key on the MAGic Keyboard was not working.
.Resolved reported issues using the Find feature (CTRL+F) in FSReader.
.A customer reported that if focus was in a Windows security dialog
and speech was off, braille was not working as expected and JAWS was
creating several untitled voice profiles. This is now fixed.

Microsoft Excel
.When focused in the Font edit combo box, addressed a reported issue
where the location of the cursor was not being shown in braille.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the list of
column headers in the Sort dialog box.
.Addressed an issue where information was not being displayed
correctly in braille in certain spreadsheets when the braille mode was
set to Current Row.
.Addressed a reported issue with suggestions in the spell checker not
being read as expected.

Microsoft Internet Explorer
.If you are inside an application region on a web page in both
Internet Explorer and Firefox, it is now necessary to press the PC
cursor command (NUM PAD PLUS) twice quickly to turn off Forms mode and
return to the Virtual PC cursor. This change was made to keep users
from inadvertently leaving Forms mode while interacting with controls
inside application regions which require Forms mode remain active and
is similar to having to press the PC cursor command twice quickly to turn
off the Touch cursor.
.Resolved issues with JAWS reading links and other content on web
pages marked as hidden and not meant to be read by screen readers.
.Resolved an issue where changes to the Graphical Links setting were
not being saved when configured through the Personalized Web Settings
group in Quick Settings.

Microsoft Outlook
.When navigating the tree view of folders in Outlook 2010, resolved an
issue where the number of unread messages in the selected folder was
not being announced automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue with the last message in an Outlook 2013 folder
being announced and shown in braille even after deleting the message.
.Addressed a customer reported issue with the keystrokes to read
header information not working as expected in Calendar appointments.
These keystrokes include ALT+1 for the From field, ALT+2 for the Sent
field, ALT+3 for the To field, and so on.
.Resolved a reported issue where the number of unread messages in the
selected folder was not being shown in braille in the Go to Folder
dialog box.

Microsoft Word
.Resolved issues with JAWS not reading as expected in Word 2013 when
using
CTRL+UP or DOWN ARROW to read by paragraph, ALT+UP or DOWN ARROW to
CTRL+read by
sentence, and ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys to navigate in tables.
.If the fields in a Word form contain F1 help, resolved an issue where
JAWS would speak the entire prompt for the current form field every
time a character was typed. This only occurred in Word 2013.
.JAWS will now read as expected when encountering an Excel spreadsheet
embedded in a Word document.
.Resolved an issue with JAWS not spelling the selected item in the
Suggestions list in the Word 2013 Proofing pane. The INSERT+F7 command
to read and spell the current suggestion now also works as expected
when focused in the list of suggestions.
.Resolved an issue reported by customers in Spain using Word 2007
where search results were not being spoken automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue where the message indicating that a document
contains headers or footers was not being shown in braille.

Mozilla Firefox
.Improved JAWS detection of headings that are inside table captions.
.Addressed a situation where an ARIA region on a web page could appear
blank after a page update.
.Addressed an issue with JAWS not detecting changes in the language on
combo boxes.
.In response to a customer, pressing INSERT+F in Firefox to receive
font information will now indicate web loaded fonts.

WordPad
.Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not reading the table
of contents section of an RTF file opened in WordPad.
.A customer reported an issue with JAWS not reading web addresses in
WordPad. This is now resolved.

Take care.

.If you are inside an application region on a web page in both
Internet Explorer and Firefox, it is now necessary to press the PC
cursor command (NUM PAD PLUS) twice quickly to turn off Forms mode and
return to the Virtual PC cursor. This change was made to keep users
from inadvertently leaving Forms mode while interacting with controls
inside application regions which require Forms mode remain active and
is similar to having to press the PC cursor command twice quickly to turn
off the Touch cursor.
.Resolved issues with JAWS reading links and other content on web
pages marked as hidden and not meant to be read by screen readers.
.Resolved an issue where changes to the Graphical Links setting were
not being saved when configured through the Personalized Web Settings
group in Quick Settings.

Microsoft Outlook
.When navigating the tree view of folders in Outlook 2010, resolved an
issue where the number of unread messages in the selected folder was
not being announced automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue with the last message in an Outlook 2013 folder
being announced and shown in braille even after deleting the message.
.Addressed a customer reported issue with the keystrokes to read
header information not working as expected in Calendar appointments.
These keystrokes include ALT+1 for the From field, ALT+2 for the Sent
field, ALT+3 for the To field, and so on.
.Resolved a reported issue where the number of unread messages in the
selected folder was not being shown in braille in the Go to Folder
dialog box.

Microsoft Word
.Resolved issues with JAWS not reading as expected in Word 2013 when
using
CTRL+UP or DOWN ARROW to read by paragraph, ALT+UP or DOWN ARROW to
CTRL+read by
sentence, and ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys to navigate in tables.
.If the fields in a Word form contain F1 help, resolved an issue where
JAWS would speak the entire prompt for the current form field every
time a character was typed. This only occurred in Word 2013.
.JAWS will now read as expected when encountering an Excel spreadsheet
embedded in a Word document.
.Resolved an issue with JAWS not spelling the selected item in the
Suggestions list in the Word 2013 Proofing pane. The INSERT+F7 command
to read and spell the current suggestion now also works as expected
when focused in the list of suggestions.
.Resolved an issue reported by customers in Spain using Word 2007
where search results were not being spoken automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue where the message indicating that a document
contains headers or footers was not being shown in braille.

Mozilla Firefox
.Improved JAWS detection of headings that are inside table captions.
.Addressed a situation where an ARIA region on a web page could appear
blank after a page update.
.Addressed an issue with JAWS not detecting changes in the language on
combo boxes.
.In response to a customer, pressing INSERT+F in Firefox to receive
font information will now indicate web loaded fonts.

WordPad
.Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not reading the table
of contents section of an RTF file opened in WordPad.

What's new in this release:



Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2339 (April 2015)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16 release on
April 9, 2015, and the April 29, 2015 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.

JAWS
•For customers who use JAWS 16 and MAGic 13 together, we resolved an issue
that was discovered in the previous update where MAGic's Mouse Echo feature
was not working as expected when JAWS 16 was running.
•Worked with Smarter Balance Testing group in order to make some adjustments
in how JAWS is working with the tests being conducted in many of the schools
throughout the US.
•In addition to detecting math that is rendered using MathJax in Internet
Explorer, JAWS now detects Math content that is directly included in the
HTML of a web page in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
•The contents of the Math Viewer are now displayed visually on the screen.
The Math Viewer is accessed by pressing ENTER when JAWS encounters math
content on a web page. As the equation is navigated using the ARROW keys,
each expression or partial expression is highlighted so a sighted assistant
can easily track visually, what JAWS is speaking.
•Based on customer feedback, JAWS is now much more responsive when reading
long and complex mathematical expressions rendered by MathJax.
•Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not recognizing math content in
Internet Explorer on Wikipedia when the Wikipedia user account was set to
render math using MathJax.
•Improved how JAWS pronounces various mathematical functions so they are
spoken using more natural language.
•The Technology News from CNET Research It lookup source now works as it did
in JAWS 15, displaying as many as 20 articles.
•If both JAWS and MAGic are running, resolved an issue where pressing the
Text Viewer toggle key on the MAGic Keyboard was not working.
•Resolved reported issues using the Find feature (CTRL+F) in FSReader.
•A customer reported that if focus was in a Windows security dialog and
speech was off, braille was not working as expected and JAWS was creating
several untitled voice profiles. This is now fixed.

Microsoft Excel
•When focused in the Font edit combo box, addressed a reported issue where
the location of the cursor was not being shown in braille.
•Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the list of column
headers in the Sort dialog box.
•Addressed an issue where information was not being displayed correctly in
braille in certain spreadsheets when the braille mode was set to Current
Row.
•Addressed a reported issue with suggestions in the spell checker not being
read as expected.

JAWS and Windows 8.1

David Moore
 

Hi Claudia, JAWS 15 and 16 both work very well with Windows 8.1! If
you have at least JAWS 15, you have the touch cursor to use to
navigate the start screen and use the apps that are there. Windows 10
is supposed to be even better, because it improves 8.1! It should
come out in the fall, but if you get 8.1 now, you will be able to
update to Windows 10 for free! Have a great day, all of you!


Re: Other Backup Programs That Are Accessible With Jaws Besides Windows Backup

Ameen Ahmed <thelegendofzelda17@...>
 

Hello Bob,



I have tried using the free version of Sync Back and it
doesn't work well with Jaws. The PC Curser is not accessible with Jaws and
I use the Jaws Curser to click on run and it doesn't do anything even though
I have an external hard drive plugged into my computer. Can you please find
out what other backup programs that are completely accessible with Jaws and
other screen readers like Window Eyes?

Re: difficulty getting jaws icon on desktop and assigning shortcut key

Barbara Hansen <the2skibears@...>
 

Hello David,

Thank you so much for your assistance.

When I got to the "open file location", and put the cursor on the "shortcut"
item, the contex menu did not have a choice for sending to the desktop.
There was the choice of toolbar and short cut as you mentioned. Well, I
decided to select the "shortcut" item and copy to the desktop. Well, that
worked and I now have the shortcut on my desktop from which I was able to go
to properties and create the shortcut.

Problem solved.

Again, thanks for your help and also for suggestions from others.

Barbara

Hi Barbara,
if you open the context menu of the Jaws on the start screen, and choose
open file location, File explorer should open, and a Jaws shortcut should be
selected. The other item in the location should be a tools folder.
Are you saying that there are no items in the items view when file explorer
opens?
If this is the case, can you then press alt+d to go to the address bar, and
then press ctrl+c to copy the address. Then post a message and paste that
address (ctrl+v) into it so that I can try and work out what's going on.

Hi Gary,

I have tried the "function key" with F10, however; the contex menu has the
following choices:
Unpin from start, unpin from taskbar, uninstall, open new window, run as
administrator, open file location, and resize-submenu.
I tried going to the file location, but didn't find anything there.

I had the people from Staples where I purchased the computer, to install
everything and, was surprised too that jaws was not on the desktop.

I really appreciate this group of wonderful people who are so supportive.

Re: settings issues

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Most warning dialog boxes contain a "do not show this message again"
checkbox. If that is the case with the ones you're getting, you just need
to check that box, and it should never come up again.

Re: pass key on audible

Gary King
 

The message could have been more specific, indicating that the pass through procedure is referring to the attached submenu rather than to the link. I don't recall that I've seen submenus attached to links except on Audible, but there must be other examples somewhere.

Gary,

This is useful information, and you're right, the applications key brings up a different menu depending on whether I reach the link by arrowing or tabbing. I hadn't known. That said, Audible's instruction to press the pass-through key combo is confusing when all a visitor need do is press enter to reach the item named in the link.

Adrian,
In order to get the pass through to work properly, you must tab to the links
with the submenus instead of using your arrow keys. This is due to a
long-standing problem that JAWS has of focusing a link. To see an example
of this, arrow to a link; then press your Applications key and note the menu
choices. Then tab to the same link and repeat the process. You should see
a different menu.

Drew,

My experience on the Audible website says to ignore this pass-through
verbalization. For example, whenever I land on the "Library" link, Audible
issues that pass-through message. However, I just press enter, as usual,
and I go right to the library. I've tried the pass-through insert-3 key on
that link just to see what happened, and the answer was nothing.

Dear list,

I'm sure this has been addressed before, but on the audible.com site, in
order to access some of the menus jaws says "press passkey and space to
get
through" or something like that. What is the command for the pass key with
Jaws? thanks
