Tom,

 

Here you go.

 

Enhancements in JAWS 17.0.2417 (July 2016)

 

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 17 June 2016 release and the July 2016 update.

 

JAWS
list of 8 items
• We have been working with Microsoft to improve the accessibility of the Mail app included in Windows 10. After installing this update, read-only messages
you open are now read using the Virtual Cursor, similar to Outlook. Additionally, just like in Word or Outlook, JAWS now announces when you turn on or
off the bold, italic, and underline attributes in editable messages using the CTRL+B, CTRL+I, and CTRL+U commands. While users should notice improved performance
with the currently released Mail app, Microsoft has made a number of changes as well to improve the experience which will be included in a Windows 10 update
that will be available in the coming weeks.
• Due to issues with obtaining results from 411.com, the People Search Research It lookup source has been updated to use the web site 10digits.us. To search,
you now only need to enter the person's first and last name. If you receive too many results, you can narrow the search further by typing the person's
first and last name followed by a comma, and then the city and state, or zip code. For example, John Smith, Saint Petersburg FL, or John Smith, 33716.
• Addressed an issue where the INSERT+4 keystroke could not be found using the JAWS Command Search feature. This command opens a dialog box where you can
select from a list of items such as Euro, Yen, Pounds, Trademark, Copyright, bullet, plus or minus, etc. and the symbol for that item will be inserted
at the cursor position in the currently open document. If you know of any other keystrokes that are missing from the JAWS Command Search, or are not easily
found, please provide us with the name of the keystroke and the search terms you are using to locate it so we can update the command descriptions with
this information to make them easier to find.
• When entering text in contracted braille using the APH Refreshabraille display, addressed a reported issue where contracted words beginning with dots
4-5-6 were not being correctly translated.
• This update contains new scripts from Corel to add JAWS support for the X8 versions of WordPerfect, Quatro Pro, and Presentations.
• Dictionary pronunciation rules have been added so that JAWS now correctly speaks the name "Ai Squared".
• Resolved an issue with the Weather Research It lookup source in the German version of JAWS not displaying the temperature.
• In response to customer requests, you can now configure braille input when the braille language is set to English - United Kingdom.
list end

 

Microsoft Excel
list of 3 items
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reporting background color changes in Excel after turning on "Font, color, and attribute changes indication" in
Quick Settings.
• Addressed issues with opening drop-down lists contained in cells.
• Addressed an issue where structured braille stopped working correctly if focus moved to a menu and then back to the spreadsheet.
list end

 

Web Browsers
list of 3 items
• Addressed certain instances where combo boxes on a web page were not being shown in the virtual buffer.
• In addition to announcing "has pop up" on aria menu buttons, JAWS now also says "has pop up" for any element that includes the aria-haspopup property.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not always announcing the change in status for toggle buttons in Internet Explorer.
list end

 

Windows 10
list of 3 items
• Resolved an issue where JAWS support for the Windows 10 Calculator was not working as expected.
• Improved JAWS performance in the Windows 10 Open With dialog box, which allows you to select the application to use to open the current file.
• The JAWS settings for the Windows 10 Task Manager are now loaded as expected.
list end

Tom,

That page starts out with the general jaws 17 stuff but then goes on
to list (from most to least recent) the items dealt with in each
release.

The changes can be found at
http://www.freedomscientific.com/Downloads/jaws/JAWSWhatsNew

One item that matters to me is that the windows 10 calculator once more
echos the display as you go, though there is still no shortcut for switching
between modes (basic, scientific, programmer etc) as in previous versions of
the program. But that's a windows issue, not jaws.

Hi, Sandra. You can still get Adobe Flash Player. Just follow the steps at the website below. Be sure to uncheck boxes associated with Chrome if you're not using Chrome as your Internet Browser. What will happen when you click Install now is this. You will begin receiving a download of an .exe file which you will run to install Flash Player.
 
Here is the link.

Hi, all,
 
First, let me get one thing straight: they are no longer offering Flash Player, and now, it’s Shockwave, correct? Like a fool, I got rid of the add-ons through Manage Add-Ons, and so, went to Adobe proper to see if I could get either Flash or Shockwave; well, after multiple experiments, I find either I am clueless about how to make Adobe work for the installation process, or it’s just plain not accessible. Any tricks that would get installations to happen, using JAWS? Can’t use Youtube now, and am pining for it...

Re: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

Pablo Morales
 

Yes, you are able to download jaws using narrator. It is what I did;

Open ie.

Go to the address bar, pressing alt d, and typing the URL of freedom scientific.

Freedomscientific.com

Press enter

Now you press control f, to search for downloads

Now you press enter.

Now you press again control f, and now search for jaws, then press enter

Again, ppress control f and search again for jaws, but this time you will be pending of listening which jaws are you finding pressing control f. So when you find the version of jaws that you want, press enter.

It is all,

Hi,

 

You could also use NVDA installed on a USB memory stick. You’d have to know the drive letter of the USB drive in order to start NVDA, but you could press Windows R to bring up the run command, and then try different drive letters, i.e. E:\NVDA. If this doesn’t work, press escape, then Windows R followed by F:\NVDA, etc.

 

The nice thing about running NVDA from a thumb drive is, unlike Jaws, you don’t need to install video intercept or anything else.

 

You, of course, will need to have Jaws, or another screen reader  running in order to download and install the portable version of NVDA.

HTH.

I have 2 new computers with Windows 7 Pro that do not yet have a screen reader.

 

I think I’ll need to use Microsoft Narrator to gain Administrative  privileges to download and install JAWS.

 

Do you think this will work? How can I activate Narrator? Any advice on practical use within Narrator will be much appreciated.

 

Is there any way to activate Narrator from the Login Screen? I doubt it, but thought I’d ask.

Under Windows 10, it definitely works. I used Narrator to install JAWS by
downloading it with MSIE. I then used JAWS to install Firefox, Chrome and

other applications.
