Re: Getting JAWS error message of "Unknown script called for links" with the new JAWS version and Internet Explorer Version 11

Tim Ford
 

Thank you for the suggestion.  Ironically, I installed this most recent update by using the update feature in JAWS.  I have had several aborted installation updates with the JAWS feature, and my usual practice is to download and install the full update software.  I had forgotten about that until you mentioned it below.  I will now follow what from now on will be my standard practice.
 
Thanks,
Tim Ford

Tim,

            I will simply offer the solution that FS always offers me when these sorts of issues crop up:  Download the latest JAWS from their website, uninstall what's on your machine, and reinstall with the downloaded software.  If possible, shut the machine down completely after the uninstall and prior to the reinstall.

            This actually works as often as not, but at least if you've done this already you can say, from the outset, "I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the software on the website and it's made no difference."

            You are quite unlikely to get any traction with FS tech support until/unless you try this first - at least if my experiences are any indication.

Getting JAWS error message of "Unknown script called for links" with the new JAWS version and Internet Explorer Version 11

Tim Ford
 

[Sorry, first note I sent did not have any text in the body.]
 

Hi All,

 

The following started for me with this week’s new update for JAWS 17.  It does not always happen, but often enough that it makes it really cumbersome to navigate a web page using IE. 

 

Here is what happens.  I am arrowing around a web page in the usual fashion.  I press insert F7 to get the list of links, or insert F5 for a list of buttons and forms.  JAWS will often times say “Unknown script called for links”, and no list appears.

 

If I move the arrow key around to a different part of the web page and try again, insert F5 and insert F7 work fine. 

 

I have not tried Firefox or Chrome, so I do not know if this problem exists with other than IE.

 

This happens often enough that I consider it a major problem, enough for me to uninstall the new update and go back one version.  If anyone else is experiencing this, please let me know, and I will include that information in an email to JAWS tech support.  Please do not email if you are not having this problem.

 

Thanks,

Tim Ford

Thank you. The individual in question, (actually my 87-year-old mother), was able to have the problem corrected by a sighted person who clicked a “box” in the “corner” of the screen?

I hope the problem occurs again sometime when I’m at my mother’s house; so I can try to fix it with the jaws cursor.

In any event, thank you for the reply.

Hi,

 

I’ve had this issue with  outlook 2010 and a more recent version of jaws. I think the issue was the outlook  window wasn’t maximised , I maximised the screen (using the alt  and space bar  to bring up the system  menu whilst in outlook, then scrolling down to the maximise  option), this managed to fix the issue for me, so might be worth getting your friend to try this out to see if It helps

An individual I know still uses JFW 6.2, and Eudora.

Occasionally, this person, when she opens her inbox hears this:

“no message selected.”

But then she hears, for example:

“56 of 56”

if, in fact, there are 56 messages.

It sounds like there is something blocking JAWS from “seeing” the list; however, there is nothing listed in the windows list of running programs, insert+F10.

Any thoughts?

Listers,

I am very glad that the subject of apps with windows10  came up.

first of all, David you are very correct in saying the weatherchannel is very good for us screen reader users I use it on my samsumg note pro, and it works well, and I really like the vidios.

however, I can't understand how to use the Microsoft store? If any body can help with this I really would appreciate it.

I would like to have the weatherchannel  on my windows10 notebook as well.

Thanks to all.

Hi,

You definitely want to download the Weather Channel app from the windows store. It is free. The Weather Channel app allows you to get the weather for your area, and all over the world. You can also watch a lot of videos from the Weather Channel on that app. It is easy to use and very accessible. Have a great one.

I tried Alt+Shift+c while in a footnote pane (Word 2013), but it didn't appear
to have any effect. I did use the JAWS pass-through key and was prompted for
the key to be passed through.

Thank you, Steve.

Microsoft's documentation says "Remove the document window split" - not an
obvious command for this purpose.

For MS-Word 2016, they also document Alt+Shift+< and Alt+Shift+> to move to
previous/next footnote, respectively.

Re: Footnotes, was Reading headers and footers in word 2010 with JAWS 14

Hi Jason,

There is a Word keystroke Alt + Shift + C for this. It now clashes with a JAWS keystroke to convert objects, but if you use the pass through key, Insert + 3, immediately before hand, it still works. And if you need the footnote keystroke a lot and don't use the convert objects one, you can always change or delete the JAWS keystroke.

Thanks,
Steve

My Web search revealed that some people use Shift-F5 to work around this limitation, which didn't work for me as I had performed editing inside the footnote text.

I would welcome any better solutions.

Re: Reading headers and footers in word 2010 with JAWS 14

Steve Griffiths
 


I use the old-fashioned way of Alt, V, H to get into and out of headers. Note that because this is a legacy command, you don’t get any feedback from JAWS after you press V; just press H anyway and you’ll be there.

You can also press Escape to leave them, but when I do that, I don’t get any response from JAWS, so I prefer Alt, V, H.

 

Thanks,

Steve

I don’t know if this is the best way to access text in a header, but it’s the one I know. I go to the Ribbon.

ALT + N for the Insert menu.

Then press H or header or O for footer.

Then E for Edit.

That will dump you into the header or footer pane (whichever you chose).

Once you are in the header or footer you can use the up or down arrow keys to go to the other. For example, if you are in the footer and press the up arrow key you’ll land in the header.

When you are done, press Escape to return to the document.

Hi All,

 

Can someone kindly tell me how I can access headers and footers in word documents? I seem to have significant trouble inserting into documents because I can’t figure out where they have ended up, are they formatted properly? I also can’t seem to access the text in a header, for example, when someone else sends me a document.

 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
