Re: Windows+M keystroke

Ann Byrne
 

It has been my experience on more than one computer that I have to press windows+m twice, not once, to get to the desktop. Windows+d seems to work all the time, but it isn't the one I'm used to.

win+m is "minimize all" rather than show desktop as such. win+d is the
proper show desktop keystroke.

Windows+M keystroke

Andrew Diederick
 

Hello Listers:


I have recently updated to Windows 10 and Jaws 17. I have noticed
that for me at least, the windows+m keystroke no longer puts jaws on
the "desktop" of windows 10. Is there a setting configuration I am
missing that would allow this keystroke to once again be effective, or
another way of putting focus on the desktop? Also, I will be upgrading
from Microsoft office professional 2010 to office 2016. I plan on
purchasing the version of office 16 that allows you to download it
directly to one PC and use it with a local copy of office on my actual
unit, rather than office 365 from the web. Does anyone know when I go
to do this, if the old version of office 10 will automatically be
removed when I go to upgrade, or will I have to first remove office 10
before I place office 16 on my unit? Any suggestions on the most
effective way to do this? Thank you for your thoughts/suggestions in
advance. -Andrew-


W10,J17, and Quicken 2016

Stan Holdeman
 

After upgrading to W10 I am finding that my Jaws 17 works hardly at all in Quicken 2016. Things worked reasonably good in Windows 7.
 
Does anyone have some insight on this?

Re: jfw17 and cortana

 

Hi,
I expect JAWS 18 to provide basic support for Edge (which opens up a lot of
possibilities). At the moment you cannot view search results if it shows up
via Edge, but Cortana will respond via voice for certain search strings and
tasks (expanded in Anniversary Update).
Cheers,
Joseph

Cortana uses the Edge browser and Edge is not accessible yet. I was
informed by a Microsoft representative that there is no way to change the

Re: Jaws accessible VOIP service/desktop client

Cristóbal
 

I have my own business that entails answering the phone. Receiving calls on the computer allows me to take the call and at the same time, wriet down information  and look up whatever I need with Jaws at the same time. Skype does well with this, but there are a few issus that bug me about it. Thus my interest as to any possibel alternatives. Be it actual tel service or program to make/receive calls.

Hello list,

I’m in search  of an accessible VOIP desktop client with Jaws as it is the screen reader I’m using.

I’m currently using Skype and a Skype telephone number. My subscription comes due in a few weeks and before I renew for another  year, I wanted to see if there was perhaps another option out there that is equal to or more accessible than skype. I know there’s Vonage and I guess MagicJack and grasshopper, but I’m also looking for something that I can use to take and receive calls on a computer with all the regular functions like call waiting, forwarding, voicemail, etc.

I’m a big time Google Voice user, but the one drawback is that there’s no real way to easily answer/make calls from the computer  with GV/Hangouts  and Jaws. I currently have my GV business line forward to my Skype number where I can then manage incoming/outgoing  calls.

Free or Paid is fine. I’m just looking for something that is reliable and accessible.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can set hot keys by navigating to the JAWS Icon on your desktop. Then press Alt plus enter. Then press the tab key until you hear JAWS say Shortcut key hot key none. Here you can assign the shortcut key you want to use. Please note, if you press only the letter,, you will still have to use Control Plus Alt and the key you select. Hope this helps!

Provided you set that hotkey up. I believe you have to set up the hot key, and for the record, you can make it any key that you want it to be. For example, if you have more than one version of JAWS on your computer, you may want to assign a number rather than the letter J. Let's say you wanted to start JAWS 17. You can set the hot key for that for Control Plus Alt Plus 7. Hope this helps!
