I went through the same thought process, but I think Carlos would also needed to have bought an SMA, which it sounds like he didn’t. I’d prefer to be wrong on this one.

Hello Listers,

I really need to know this information.

I was told to day by Microsoft accessibility department, that I can't use Jaws16 with windows10 that has the 2015 patches fix, Is this true? I just installed windows10 with the accesibility department, and paying $363 for Jaws16. I don't really want to pay more money for another version of Jaws at this time.

So, will someone, anyone, tell me what is the real deal with these two versions of Jaws and windows10 I would greatly appreciate that information.

I also read some where on line, that some good changes has been made in the 2015 patches?

Thanks to all for your help.

I don't know anything about the 2015 patches, but you can certainly run
Windows 10 with the latest release of Jaws 16. I've been using Windows 10
with Jaws 16 ever since I downloaded and installed Windows 10 last October.
I always keep Jaws current, meaning I install all Jaws updates regardless of
the version of Jaws being used.

My guess is that the Microsoft Accessibility person (who does work for Microsoft after all) didn't hide KB3035583 so it downloaded again today. You have to hide it from the list of updates, then you have to tell Windows Update you don't want recommended updates the same way as important updates, and then you have to pray.

Dear Listers:

 

Have any of you ever had any luck reading shared calendars while in Microsoft Outlook?

 

I work for the Alameda County Probation Department in Oakland, California, and every day I like to check a shared calendar on Outlook to see who will be the Officer of the Day.  I am using Outlook 14 and am using Windows 7 at work.  After getting into the Calendar using the Control+2 keystroke, I open the Files menu, arrow down to Open, and hit the Enter Key.  A dialog appears asking me what to open.  I arrow down to Shared Calendars and hit the Enter key.  A dialog appears asking what shared calendar I am looking for.  I type the words Probation Adult, and hit the Enter key.  A variety of options appear.  I arrow down to the Adult OD (Officer of the Day) calendar at the main Probation Center and hit the Enter key.  And here’s where I am running into trouble.  JAWS speaks Adult PC as the open calendar, but when I tab to read who will be the Officer of the Day on the given day, instead of reading from the O.D. calendar, JAWS reads the appointments  on my personal calendar.  I checked with Freedom Scientific.  They told me to hit the F6 key to cycle between the calendars.  When I tried it, it didn’t work.  Am I doing something wrong?  I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has read Shared Calendars using Outlook.

 There are other updates that bring GWX back, too.  I just managed to find some of the identified updates on Bleepingcomputer.com in this post on the Windows 10 forum.  As I've said on other threads, Microsoft is being very aggressive about this.

There is a reason that I have recommended GWX Control Panel, and that is because it works in removing GWX and keeping it removed (at least in the installed version).  The developer has been very good about keeping up with the ongoing updates that launch the next attempt to install GWX on computers again.  I imagine the parade will continue at least through the end of July.

Re: IE11 keeps crashing

Lauren,

This used to happen to me all the time, and only when JAWS was running. Are you using Avast as your Antivirus? If so, try disabling the Avast Add-on in Internet Explorer. (Tools, Manage Add-ons.) You could possibly also be experiencing issues with Flash Ads. I had this problem with Firefox until I got Adblock Plus, and now that problem is gone for me.

Direct Download Links & What's New For Latest Release J17.0.1377

Howdy All,
 
Below are the direct download links & what's new in this J17.0.1377 release.

Enhancements in JAWS 17.0.1377 (January 2016)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 17 November 2015 release and the January 2016 update.
 
JAWS
list of 17 items
• The INSERT+X command, which temporarily toggles Smart Navigation, now uses the default selection configured in the Startup Wizard. For instance, if the
default setting is Off, performing this command toggles between Controls and Tables and Off. If the default setting is Controls, performing this command
toggles between Off and Controls.
• When typing in Contracted Braille using the keyboard on the Focus display, resolved an issue where text was not being entered into edit fields if the
particular field was completely empty.
• When JAWS is configured to display text in Unified English Braille (UEB), resolved an issue where the word "in" was being incorrectly contracted when
followed by a punctuation mark or preceded by a quotation mark.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with UEB translation where the "ever" contraction was being used incorrectly in some instances.
• Resolved an issue where the dollar sign (dot 4 followed by dots 2-3-4) was not being entered as expected when typing in Unified English Braille Grade
2.
• On the Braille Settings page in the Startup Wizard, the Placement of Status Cells and Dot Firmness options will now only be available when a braille
display supporting these features is connected.
• Added new braille tables for Dutch.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS was unexpectedly speaking the system time after pressing ENTER from the Search Box in the Windows 7 Start
menu.
• Added links in the JAWS Help to the web page where users can download the Freedom Scientific Developer Network (FSDN).
• A new option, Annotation Indication, has been added to the Reading Options group in Quick Settings for all applications. It determines whether or not
JAWS detects annotations such as comments, footnotes, and endnotes in rich text documents.
• Resolved an issue with the Technology News from CNet Research It lookup source where results containing an apostrophe were not being displayed correctly.
• If JAWS is configured to start automatically at the logon screen or after you have logged into Windows, you can now press and hold both the ALT and CTRL
keys as Windows boots to prevent JAWS from starting. This is useful if you need to troubleshoot any startup related issues you may be experiencing.
• A new speech output type has been added which enables JAWS to automatically announce toast notifications. These are notifications apps can use to display
time-sensitive or personally relevant notifications regardless of whether the user is in another app or on the Start screen, Lock screen, or Desktop. For
example, a toast may be used to alert a user to an incoming VOIP call, instant message, or text message. The new Toasts output type is selected for all
verbosity levels and can be configured using the Configure Verbosity Levels group in Settings Center.
• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the Miranda NG instant messaging client.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where pressing INSERT+PAGE UP in a command prompt window was reading the next line instead of reading from the cursor
to the end of the current line as expected.
• Addressed a reported issue with dialog boxes that are generated using JAWS scripts not being spoken as expected.
• Worked with Pitney Bowes to resolve several reported issues that impacted their company employees using JAWS.
list end
 
IBM Notes (formerly Lotus Notes)
list of 1 items
• Due to limitations with JAWS support for IBM Notes, Smart Navigation does not work as well as it does in other applications that use the Virtual Cursor.
At this time, we have disabled this feature in IBM Notes until we can get it working properly.
list end
 
Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox
list of 9 items
• When navigating the contents of some edit fields, resolved an issue where the last and first words of consecutive lines were being read as a single word.
• Improvements continue to be made to JAWS performance with Google Docs and Google Sheets. These include the paragraph navigation commands (CTRL+UP ARROW
and CTRL+DOWN ARROW) as well as the commands for reading the current line and current paragraph (INSERT+UP ARROW and INSERT+NUM PAD 5) now working as expected,
the document content edit field now being properly recognized as a multiline edit, and JAWS now speaking the correct label for the document content edit
field and no longer displaying it on every line in Braille.
• You can now use the JAWS cursor to navigate web page content in Firefox.
• Resolved an issue where spaces in the content of some tables were being ignored by JAWS.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS domain-specific settings for a specific web page were not being loaded as expected in some situations.
• When pressing ENTER or SPACEBAR on a toolbar button, JAWS no longer exits Forms Mode, enabling you to continue interacting with the toolbar until focus
changes.
• Resolved a reported issue with JAWS not reading form field descriptions as expected when the aria-describedby property is applied to a fieldset.
• When pressing INSERT+F5 to open a list of form fields on a web page, addressed an issue where some fields were not being displayed properly if they contained
HTML markup.
• While typing into a multiline edit field, JAWS no longer exits Forms Mode when the ENTER key is pressed to add a new line.
list end
 
Microsoft Outlook
list of 3 items
• Addressed a reported issue with shared calendars not being read by JAWS in some versions of Outlook 2010.
• In the Outlook 2013 calendar, resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not indicating the "checked" status of shared calendars.
• In an email message that contains tables, addressed a reported issue where the SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD keystrokes were not moving to the beginning
or end of the current table.
list end
 
Microsoft Word
list of 3 items
• If ALT+UP ARROW is pressed from the files list in the Open dialog box to move to the parent folder, resolved an issue where this keystroke would not
work unless the Pass Key Through command (INSERT+3) was pressed first.
• Addressed an issue with using the F11 and SHIFT+11 keystrokes to move through form fields in a document.
• Resolved an issue where Research It could not be launched while focused in the Backstage view.
list end
 
Skype
list of 1 items
• When using Skype in Windows 10, addressed an issue where JAWS was not correctly announcing the title of chat windows.
list end
 
Windows Live Mail
list of 1 items
• Addressed a customer reported issue where information was not being spoken as expected when selecting messages.
list end
 
Windows 10
list of 3 items
• In the Windows 10 Calculator, you can now press INSERT+CTRL+D to move focus to the Display field so you can review a result, or the numbers you entered
for a calculation. If you are using a Focus braille display, you can press D CHORD.
• Improved JAWS performance on the Windows 10 lock screen, which gains focus when you press WINDOWS Key+L to log off.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was announcing too much information in the Choose Default Apps dialog box.
list end
Take care.

As I've been posting, this step did not happen:
 
you will receive an email with your user-ID (usually your email address) and
password.  Be sure to save this email so that you have a record of your
password for future reference should you need it, although you will be
logged in initially.

However my Paypal account shows my payment for $0.99 to the Rumola person. Any tips?

Okay, here's the steps for getting Rumola to work with IE:

1.  Access the Rumola web site (
http://skipinput.com/), and press "H"
repeatedly until you land on the heading labeled "Bookmarklet".  Then tab to
the link labeled "...Rumola" and press Enter.
2.  Launch the Context menu and scroll all the way down to the Add to
Favorites dialog.  Tab to the combo box and  scroll down the list once to
choose Favorites bar and then tab to the  Add button and activate it.
3.  Once Rumola is in the Favorites bar, activate it for the first time and you should get a message that you have no credits left.  Click on the Okay button and you should be presented with a web page for purchasing credits which are 99
cents for 50 captcha credits, which are good for a year.  You can pay with
PayPal or a major credit/credit card.  Once your account has been activated,
you will receive an email with your user-ID (usually your email address) and
password.  Be sure to save this email so that you have a record of your
password for future reference should you need it, although you will be
logged in initially.
4.  Now Rumola is ready to use.  Using IE, whenever you encounter a web page
that contains an image captcha, press Control-I to launch the favorites
list, scroll to the favorites bar by pressing "F" repeatedly, and hit Enter
when you land on Rumola.  The captcha will be solved almost instantly and
placed in the correct edit field, and one credit will be deducted from your
account.  Keep checking this edit field to be sure that the result is there;
there is no audible feedback to alert you that the captcha has been solve.
5.  If you want to test Rumola, visit the following sample image captcha
page and activate Rumola from the IE favorites bar.  The result will be
placed in the field labeled "2+3=".  Note that if you refresh this page, a
new image captcha will be presented.  This is only a test page, not a real
account creation page:

http://www.captchacreator.com/v-examples.html

That's it.  Good luck!

Yes, absolutely.  Rumola works perfectly with IE.  You simply place the
Rumola app in the IE favorites bar, and whenever you encounter a web page
that contains an image captcha, you launch it from the favorites bar, and it
will place the captcha result in the correct edit field automatically.
Trust me.  I know it works with IE because I have tested it extensively.
Last week, for instance, I unexpectedly encountered a captcha on the log-in
page for the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.  I simply
pressed Control-I to launch the IE favorites list, scrolled to the favorites
bar, launched Rumola, and almost instantaneously, the captcha result was
placed in the correct edit field.  That's all there is to it.

Are you sure that Rumola works with Internet Explorer?
From the information I found, it works with Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, but
says nothing about Internet Explorer.

Re: What happens with Edit fields in I E 11 with JAWS 15, latest JAWS 16 & 17?

If Ie11 jumps to the address bar, use Control plus the F6 function key to jump back to the web page.

HI
  When I am using IE 11 to fill out forms, it will suddenly jump to the address bar.  It is quite distracting.  It takes time to get back to where you were.

Hey Tony,

 

Have you tried resetting advance setting in IE11

Sometimes IE is the only program I have running.  Sometimes I have 20 or windows open.

 

Sometimes IE stops almost immediately, sometimes it will run for half an hour or more.

 

Sometimes it takes Jaws 16 down, it will either restart automatically or I have to restart Jaws.

 

At first my experience with IE11 was better than IE10 but that didn’t last very long.

            Additional detail about what message(s) you get when it's crashing will be required before any reasonable suggestions can be made.  If it's not literally crashing, but freezing, then that's something else, but I'm presuming that it's shutting down with some sort of crash message.

Not sure what you mean unless its software rather than hardware rendering of graphics.  Haven’t tried that.

Hi,
So I'm trying to download Kodi onto my laptop which is about 7 years old. I haven't used it probably in about 8 months or close to a year, and I'm running Jaws11. I'm not able to type within an edit field, when launching Internet Explorer, and when on  my Google homepage. Does this mean that my internet Explorer is out of date with my version of Jaws? Not really sure what's going on, but can't even switch browsers, simply because I can't search from where I'm at on the Google page. The message I get when trying to enter into an edit field, is edit unavailable. If any of you can give any suggestions on how to get me up and running so I can continue doing what I want to do, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
