Hi List,
I'm new.  I called Freedom Scientific tech support to check,  before enrolling my 11th grade braille-using student in online chemistry,  if JAWS played nicely with the underlying platform upon which the online course is offered,  Moodle.  John at FS tech support had never heard of Moodle,  and couldn't offer any advice about JAWS ability to interact with it.  Has anyone here ever taken a Moodle-based online course using JAWS?   Thanks for any opinion.  -Holly,  a newbie

Re: JAWS 14 with MS Office 2013 or 2016?

HAMILTON
 

From what I am hearing, MS Office 2013 is more accessible than MS Office 2016. It is also possible that users of 2016 will be forced into using the "cloud" for some things. Perhaps, another lister will have a better perspective on this aspect of 2016. For your reference, I am using MS Office 2013 with JAWS 17.0.1337 on a Windows 8.1 PC. Nothing's perfect; but, I am pretty happy with how things have been going lately, even with IE11. Jim H

Hello,
You can activate smart navigation in two ways. Through settings center where
you press space to cycle through the options - off, controls, and controls
and tables. The second way is through the jaws startup wizard, where these
options are radio buttons. Smart navigation
 Is used via the arrow keys. In controls, you can arrow across form fields
and you'll get the exact layout of the form. In tables, you navigate them
again with the arrow keys and you can pick a cell in a row, and arrow down
to the corresponding cell on subsequent lines.

Hi.
If you don't use smart navigation, everything behaves as before. Say
word, Say Character are not quick navigation keys, but those two are the
ones affected by smart navigation, when smart navigation is in affect,
these keys require two quick presses to allow you to navigate the text
character by character or word by word. This is because the arrow keys
otherwise navigate by element, so one press of right arrow for instance
might go to a link, or perhaps a button, you won't be able to use arrow
keys to spell the name of the button for instance if you don't
understand what it says unless you do sayCharacter keystroke twice
quickly, thereafter the arrow keys will read the name of the button
character by character as you'd expect.

Remember, smart navigation is off by default anyway, and that only
really affects sayWord and sayCharacter keystrokes. They do recommend
however that you use semi auto forms mode or manual, because navigation
quick keys like h won't work very well if you have smart navigation on,
and fully auto forms mode, because if you arrow onto an edit box it will
enable forms mode, then if you try to use h it'll just type h in the box
instead of going to next heading, and you won't be able to get out of
the box with arrow keys I suspect (not verified) until you hit escape.

Navigation quick keys really are not affected in any way by smart
navigation, but the auto forms mode setting remains with the same 3
options as in jaws 16. If you leave smart navigation off jaws will
behave exactly as it did in version 16 when it comes to web pages in
every way to the best of my knowledge.

Also, yes, smart navigation will be new to JAWS 17.

Re: turning off password screen on windows 10

Milton Ota <mota1252@...>
 

Your Windows PC, if you’re running Windows 8 or Windows 10, is tied to your Live account. xWhen you login to your system you have to enter the same password
that could open your Hotmail/outlook email account, log you into Skype, and even buy apps from the Windows App Store. Unfortunately, that’s also the only
thing preventing access to your PC. If you aren’t too bothered about securing your computer with a password, and are just plain annoyed with having to
login in repeatedly, there is a simple way to disable it so that you can just dive right in and start using your PC. Here’s how.

Right-click the Start button and select the Run option. Type netplwiz and hit enter.

win_10_run

This will open the User Accounts window. There are other ways to open this window; you can use the Control Panel as well. The Run dialogue is the quickest
way to open it. If you have several different accounts configured, choose the one that you would like to skip the whole login and password option for.
Uncheck the ‘Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer’ and click Apply at the bottom.

user accounts _ PW

Restart your system and you will see you no longer have to enter a password to start using it. Disabling the password has pros and cons of course, so be
mindful that you’re taking a layer of security off your system and trading it in for convenience by doing this.

So it's becoming high time I give thought to retiring my old instalation of Office 2003. For reasons a-plenty, most of them outlined on this list, I'm holding off on JAWS 16 or 17 for the next little while. So my question would be this. How useable are later versions of Office, either 2013 or 2016, with JAWS? I fully expect just about everything to require a learning curve, but if half of that learning curve isn't telling JAWS not to do something dumb, then I may just go for it anyway. Thoughts and opinions are, of course, always welcome and even encouraged.

I have found that keeping the virtual pc cursor off consistently does help with reading Google docs, though the word “blank” proceeds the reading of the cell contents, and navigation is sluggish. The bigger problem is that turning the virtual pc cursor off in that one tab affects all my other tabs where I do want it on; i.e. toggling it back on with insert z twice quickly doesn’t appear to do anything.

 

Thanks,

Tasha

Hi Jim,

 

Here you go:

 

Smart Navigation, More Efficient Interaction with Complex Web Pages and
Applications
Today and in the future, users will be faced with an increased need to work
with complex web forms, tables, and even applications that run inside of a
web browser. This will impact your day to day interactions with services
on-line such as banking and shopping, in addition to many web apps found in
both companies and government agencies. For instance, Internet Explorer can
be used to log onto a Microsoft SharePoint server to collaborate with other
co-workers and create and store documents. The new Smart Navigation feature
is designed to make it more efficient when navigating web-based applications
with the Virtual Cursor as the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW or CTRL+LEFT and
CTRL+RIGHT ARROW commands move by control instead of character and word.
This makes navigation such as moving across toolbars, tab strips, and
navigation links more like navigating around a desktop application. Pressing
the Say Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice quickly changes to
the traditional navigation by character, word, line, sentence, and paragraph
so you can review the text of the control. Smart Navigation resumes when you
press ESC, or move to a different control by pressing UP or DOWN ARROW or
TAB.

For example, if you use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to move across a tab
strip, you might hear JAWS announce something like; "Home tab selected,"
"Insert tab," and "Page Layout tab." If you wanted to review the items on
the tab strip character by character, press the Say Character (NUM PAD 5),
Say Word (INSERT+NUM PAD 5), or Say Line (INSERT+UP ARROW) commands twice
quickly. You can now navigate by character or word until you press DOWN
ARROW to move away from the tab strip to another control.

Smart Navigation is off by default. To turn it on, do the following:

Press INSERT+F2, select Settings Center, and press ENTER.
Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to open the default settings file if you want to use
Smart Navigation in all web browsers, or open the Internet Explorer or
Firefox settings file.
Type "smart navigation" without the quotes into the Search edit box.
Press DOWN ARROW to move to Smart Navigation in the filtered results of the
Settings Center tree view.
Press the SPACEBAR to choose the Smart Navigation option you want to use.
Press TAB to move to the OK button and activate it with the SPACEBAR. The
changes are made and saved. Settings Center closes.
Alternatively, Smart Navigation can be enabled for all web browsers through
the Startup Wizard, or through Quick Settings (INSERT+V). For instance, you
may want to use Smart Navigation in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer.

Smart Navigation offers two modes, Controls, and Controls and Tables.

When set to Controls, most web-based controls, including, but not limited
to, buttons, links, edit fields, list boxes, tree views, and headings, are
treated as single units when navigating by character or word. Performing a
Say Character, Say Word, and Say Line command twice quickly while focused on
a control will switch to character and word Navigation so you can use the
traditional navigation by character, word, line, sentence, and paragraph to
review a control, such as the text of a button or link, in greater detail.
Smart Navigation by controls automatically resumes when you press ESC, or
move to another control using TAB or UP or DOWN ARROW. If you encounter a
table, you will still use the table reading commands (CTRL+ALT+ARROW keys)
or the Table layer (INSERT+SPACEBAR, t) to navigate the table.

When set to Controls and Tables, navigation is the same as the Controls
option when not in a table. However, if focused inside of a table, the RIGHT
and LEFT ARROW keys move between columns while the UP and DOWN ARROW keys
move between rows. When focused in a cell and it contains any controls, such
as a heading, or an edit field, pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or Say
Line commands twice quickly will switch to control navigation, and
performing these commands again twice quickly will switch to character and
word navigation. If the cell does not contain controls, you can only switch
to character and word navigation. Pressing ESC or moving focus away from the
control or table cell will switch back to the prior navigation level, for
example, pressing ESC while in character and word navigation will return to
Smart Navigation in tables.

When Smart navigation is active, press ALT+DELETE or INSERT+TAB to have JAWS
announce the current Smart Navigation level.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, either set to Controls or Controls
and Tables, JAWS will work in Screen Layout. This presents pages in the
virtual buffer similar to how they appear visually on the screen. Toolbar
buttons or other lists of controls that are visually laid out horizontally
on the screen are displayed on one line in the virtual document, allowing a
single press of the DOWN ARROW to skip the entire toolbar instead of having
to move from button to button to get past it.

For a great example, please try JAWS 17 on a web form such as the Web Track
sample form on the Surf's Up pages. On this page, you will be able to see
the power of navigating more efficiently with the DOWN ARROW then in
previous versions.

New Sound Indication for Links
As you navigate by line with Smart Navigation active, JAWS plays a sound if
the current line contains one or more links which would generally be
displayed on separate lines when you are not in Smart Navigation. This sound
helps you identify that a link exists and gives you a chance to pause to
hear about it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it. To keep this sound
from being too intrusive, it is not heard if a line contains a link that is
preceded by less than five characters. For instance, a bulleted or numbered
list that contains a link directly after the number or bullet.

Take care.
Mike

Can any one help me with Smart Navigation Keys?

What I want is to have a clear definition of the difference between normal Navigation Keys and the Smart Navigation Keys.

Thanks

JAWS losing focus in say all mode

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi All,

I am using Jaws 16 on a Windows 7 machine. The problem that I am
facing is that JAWS often stops speaking in the middle of a sentence
even when I press the keystroke to make it work in the say all mode.
Further, in Firefox, it repeatedly loses focus and I have to
constantly keep pressing alt-tab to bring it back into the window that
I am working in. Strangely, this problem doesn't appear in IE. The say
all problem, however, isn't limited to Firefox. Any thoughts?

Best,
Rahul
