Re: Information Balloons

The earlier explanation for handling balloons, is correct.

The "toasts" are notifications.

In Settings, search for "toast". You will get:
  Choose how long notifications are shown

My default is 5 seconds.

To get JAWS to announce the notification, use the hotkey: WINDOWS Logo key + v

I sometimes hear only the word: "notification".

When ejecting a USB pen drive, I hear the notification tune and the hot key will announce that it is save to remove it.

Sorry if "information balloon" is not the proper term, but I'm referring to
messages that pop up on the screen, that are displayed long enough for JAWS
to read them, and that then disappear.  Usually, there is a "click here for
more information" line.  In the present case, this information balloon is
displayed by a Web application in Internet Explorer.  I would like to freeze
the message and actually click on the "For more information" button or
whatever the control is.  Of course, it vanishes before I have time.

I swear I've searched through JAWS Help in every way I can think of.  I must
have the wrong title or name for the thing I've tried to describe above.

Thanks for any help you can render!

Pressing f6 does not do anything as the whole window appears to be
frozen. When it does do something it simply says "document pain"
repeatedly but without me being able to move or type.

The start screen option is unchecked; that doesn't appear to be the problem.

Re: Information Balloons

Mario
 

just to add 2 cents, I heard that you shouldn't exceed 30 seconds
because having a longer time will keep the message open longer and thus
might obscure/interfere with reading other program windows that are open.
I recommend 15 seconds which should give you enough time to left click
as soon as the balloon is heard.

Re: Information Balloons

 

Ed,

          It sounds like you're describing what are called toasts (don't ask me why, but that's what these "slide in" messages from Windows 10 that are generally logged in the Action Center afterward are called).  You get this quick alert tone, the thing slides in from the bottom right side of the screen, then pretty quickly disappears.  I often can't get to them in time and I can see them slide in.

          The good thing is that these do get logged in the Action Center and you can go through the list of toasts that have popped up recently that way.

I’m not too sure about this, but worth a try. As soon as you hear the pop up message do a left mouse click. This should move you into the message.

Reading by Paragraph in Wordpad

When I try to scroll by paragraphs in Wordpad, I have to push
control-down arrow twice to move to the next paragraph; when I do it
once it merely repeats the paragraph I am currently on. JAWS 17,
Windows 10. Anyone know what the deal is?


Re: JAWS and MS Word 2016

Jeanette McAllister PhD
 

Kelby,,
Try pressing F6 and you should hear JAWS say "edit" or something similar, from that point you should be able to use your reading keys.

You may have to press F6 multiple times depending where you are on the screen.

Hope this helps.

Are you searching for alt-n to jump to the informationbar?
This is an internet explorer hotkey and not a jaws hotkey.
With ctrl-f6 you can always set focus back to the webpage.

JAWS cursor not reading in Office 2013

Sameer
 

 
Dear List Members,
 
I have recently upgraded to Office 2013 from Office 2010 & am facing problems when navigating with the JAWS cursor. Whenever I try to navigate through a Word or Excel file with JAWS cursor, JAWS does not read the displayed data but just says “blank, blank”. The text is read properly with the PC cursor.
 
Kindly inform me how I can make JAWS cursor read the displayed data.
 
I am using a Windows 7 (64 – bit) computer with the latest build of JAWS 17.
 
Thanking you all in advance for any & all assistance.
 
Regards

I just tested this for you, and found that the print button is next to the
"print tab" control, which is part of the back stage view. There's a fairly
long explanation which says that the print button will send the item to the
default printer without maing any changes. There is also a spoken
announcement before it reads the print button: "Specify how you want the
item to be printed and then click print". At this point, your focus is
actually on the Print button already. This is shown clearly in the braille
output, but the speech could be confusing if you don't wait for it to
complete.


Re: Reminder, please: How to change Screen Saver settings

 

Keith,

1. Open Settings then choose Personalization.

2.  Choose the Lock Screen Pane, and then the Screen Saver Settings Link

3.  In the Screen Saver Settings dialog box, whether or not you choose to have a screen saver, be certain that the checkbox for "On Resume, display login screen" is not checked.

You're not actually being logged off, per se, but using what looks just like the login screen as a lock screen.  If the previously mentioned checkbox is unchecked the requirement to enter a password when you wake the computer up from inactivity is not enforced.  Be aware, though, that you may not be able to change this if that particular setting is controlled by a group policy setting on a work computer.  You could ask for a waiver, though.
