Hi,

Thank you so very much. Actually, you meant insert + 3 to pass JAWS key through. I pressed insert + 3 then repeatedly pressed ctrl up arrow and ctrl down arrow and it worked. Thank you I am so excited.

You can also use CTRL+3 first, then use CTRL+UP or CTRL+DOWN.

Hi,

I have the same issue with VLC, but love it as well. Here is what I do as a work around. If you press alt + a, that will open the audio menu. then, just press I to increase the volume, or press D to decrease the volume. You will have to do the entire procedure each time until the volume gets to where you want it. For example, alt + A then I. alt + A then I over and over to increase to where you want. You do not have to do this that many times. Have a great one.

Heya folks,

 

For the life of me I have never been able to control the volume up and down with the keyboard VLC hotkey control up arrow and control down arrow, is this a jaws issue? As all websites for VLC say this is the hotkey for the volume control for VLC, it just doesn’t work on my end here. Am running latest Jaws 17 and windows 7 64bit home edition

The only way I can control the volume is using the scroll on the mouse.

 

If anyone has a work around I’d appreciate it as I really love VLC otherwise.

 

Cheers,

jaws reading nonsense

Greg Nickel
 

All,

 

Sometimes I encounter articles on the web or in pdf’s downloaded from the same text that JAWS reads as if it were in another language…It sounds like nonsense to me but oddly when I copy the block of text it sounds like the block is copied in English as JAWS will state the number of characters and then the last word, the last word in English.  But the copied material reads gobbled gook when pasted into a word doc.

 

Also, just today I encountered a google search wherein the search subtext below the result the text was in English then when I navigated to the page wherein that text should have been located it was all in gobbldy gook except for one table of data.

 

This has happened enough that I thought it worthy of asking about a solution for the problem, if any….

Braille Problem

Cindy Ray <cindyray@...>
 

I have a BI 40, and I have upgraded the firmware and put the new driver for JAWS on that has the HID Interface. It has been working up until today. From time to time it has said it cannot load the braille driver, but it has loaded this new driver and the BI40 has worked. But now it says that, the driver won’t load. Not only that but the folders I created in my mailbox to move likeminded messages to for savings have all gone. Any ideas on especially the braille driver issue?

Hi Stewart,

To get rid of Task Switching, do the following:

Launch the Start Menu & type the word theme. Then, cursor down until you
find Change the theme & press Enter. Then, cursor up & down & left & right
until you find Windows Classic& press Enter to select it. Then, press alt to
get the File Menu & press Enter on Close.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

I'll be downloading JAWS 17 soon.

Right now, JAWS 16 is setup to start at LogIn.

If, in JAWS 17, I set that to start at Login, will both versions start at LogIn or will only one of them? And which one? Or, should I change the JAWS 16 setup before downloading JAWS 17? I think I always used to let the Merge Utility worry about these things, but now that it's gone, I wanted to ask before making the change.

Thanks in advance. Keith

netflix blind update

OK, so the menus are faster now, the items are selecting properly, and the DVD queue is easily manageable . I can set focus on anything in your queue through menus and remove titles, move to top, play the item, etc. This thing is growing more advanced by the hour. Can't wait to demo it again.

Uninstall

Kevin Wollenweber <dancingweed@...>
 

I am concerned as I prepare to upgrade to Windows 10; the functions are asking me to uninstall all earlier versions of JAWS, but this means that my accessibility will be hampered because earlier versions of JAWS read certain programs better than the current version.

 

Does anyone know whether Windows 10 gives back accessibility in some cases, allowing the screenreader to do more than the previous version of Windows?  Would accessibility be restored in so many cases?  In other words, does anyone have programs on their computers that were not working so well but, when upgraded to Windows 10, suddenly regained that accessibility?

 

Please help.

I see that you received a response to your question about .pdf files.  That will resolve that issue.  I don’t like opening pdf files in a browser, much better if they load through Adobe.

Hi Lauren,

 

I’d suggest you change your default browser to Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox depending on which one you wish to use.  To do this, hit your left windows key to bring up the search box.  Then type default browser and arrow to that choice and press enter.  Tab if necessary and you will find Edge which is likely your default web browser.  Hit the space barr on that button and you should get a choice of browsers to choose from.  Pick the browser you wish and press enter.  Once changed, Edge will not launch automatically.  It is likely you cannot uninstall Edge, but even if you could, I wouldn’t recommend that as at some point, Jaws will work with it and hopefully, it will be a better experience than Internet Exploder is.  Yes, I meant to say Exploder.

Should I uninstall Edge, will that effect Jaws or Windows OS or how to I get rid of it being the default program to open files in Outlook?
