Re: can't access web pages

Dale Heltzer
 

This *may not be what you’re experiencing, but when I get what JAWS sees as a blank page, Ihave used Quick OCR to find text on the page, then left mouse-clicked on the recognized text, and then JAWS will read the page in the usual way.

 


vlc and Jaws 17

Lauren Snyder
 

Hi,

 

I found the vlc media player, installed it, and got as far as hearing music on the dvd I put in. I pressed enter as instructed, but nothing happens except the music keeps continuing and the movie doesn’t start.

 

Help please!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

Judith: I am having this problem also. Sometimes I can make some progress by tabbing several times.
 
I am using windows 7, jaws 17 latest, and Google Chrome. I have tried going back to jaws 16 and back to IE 11. Same problems.

I can’t access certain web pages with jaws.  I click on a page, get there, make sure I have a PC cursor, refresh the page and look for the article I want.  Jaws tells me “read only”  or there are no headings on the page.  I arrow down and get nothing but the word blank.  Some pages work fine but it seems the ones I really want get the blank reaction.  Is there a solution to this?  JB

There is a windows dvd player that comes with one of the windows ten updates; I find that fairly accessible; you might try that.

Hi,

 

I have Windows 10 and the latest Jaws 17 update. I have a DVD I want to play on my laptop. When I placed it inside and opened the DVD drive, Jaws says audio.ts and video.ts for the files. Do I need another software and if so which one is good for Jaws users so I can run the DVD?

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

I encounter this problem myself occasionally.  The only solution I have found is to reload the page and simultaneously press the Insert-escape keys to insure that the page loads completely.

Speech and sound schemes

Pablo Morales
 

Hi guys,

I have a little weird problem with this feature of jaws. I am selecting in the list of speech and sound schemes items,  the following: ProofReading (Attributes)

Fine, jaws reads when ever on the text is a bold, or italic, or many of the attributs  on the text. But for some reason when I am reading a test, that says for example: that I need to type in the underline empty, the answer, jaws is not saying where is the underline.

What am I doing wrong?

 

 


Percentage Announcement

 

Good afternoon!


How do I turn off percentage announcment? What can I do to get JAWS to stop announcing the percentage when listening to a podcast?



Unread messages in Outlook 2013.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

For some reason, out of the blue this morning, when I arrow past a
message, it is no longer showing unread, even though it has not been
opened. It was that way originally, and someone gave me directions to set
it the way I want it, which is to show a message unread unless I've
opened it. I have checked my filed and played ribbon games all afternoon
- still haven't gotten it back. Anyone have any idea what I should do?
Thanks.


Best from,

Carolyn


Read/unread messages - Outlook 2013.

Outlook 2013 - out of the blue this morning, if I see what is in Inbox
but do not open message, I am not getting the unread before the messages.
What do I do to get that back please. What an annoying thing to just do
out of the blue for no apparent reason that I know of.

I have gone into and through several ribbon menus. So far, I can't figure
it out.

Did you do a check for updates? I do believe the newest version of 17 did show up today. When you update a box will come on the talks about the FS cast. There is a check mark that you can tab to which you can check and then it will value to not have those updates anymore about the FS cast. But you can still reach them if you want to hear them by going to the help menu.

Re: Is there a utility to automatically uncheck the master volume mute button?

hello;
what you could do is,
create a shortcut for sndvol
this will take you into the sounds mixer
dialog page, and one press of the tab key, would place you on the unmute button.
if you wish to have instructions let me know.

you can install QuickMix if you can find a legitamit and safe download,
but QM won't work in operating systems above Windows XP, and besides, I
don't think it's available anymore. the author stopped developing it
some years ago.

you can try PowerMixer or Sound Volume View from actual solutions. PM
has a small cost (less than $20 USD), SVV is free. there is a third free
program but the name escapes me, sorry.

Tis one called quikmix or something like that. You can save several
versions of it with different sound settings. You can set the easiest one
ti run to turn on sound and set the volume where you want to start.



I have a Bluetooth keyboard with a mute button I find very handy to turn the
sound back on.

J 17 focus problems

Stan Holdeman
 

Hi Listers: I am running the latest Jaws 17 on a Windows 7 machine and I use Chrome for my browser.
 
I just installed 17 this week. I am having all sorts of focus issues on my newspaper sites. I always have to tab a time or two just to get focus to begin with. Then I am continually losing focus as I go through a page or when reading an article in say all mode.
 
Are there some settings I should know about to improve this performance?
