Re: Brailliant bi question

Hi,

I'm not sure this is possible. The online command summary (link below) mentions the edit commands you give, navigating and reading, and even emulating the Shift key, but I can't get it to select anything.

Subject: brailliant bi question

Hello,
I was hoping someone could help me out. I use a Brailliant Bi 40 with JAWS 18. I looked in the manual and on Humanware's website, but I could not find how to select text using the Brailliant. I found the commands to cut, copy, and paste, but I could not find how to actually select a block of text. Therefore, for any Brailliant users, can someone explain how to select text?
Thank you,
Kelsey Nicolay

Hello there;
You may need to check the ad-ins which are running in outlook, Or, you could try, 1, close outlook, 2, from the run command, type in:
Outlook /safe:3
This loads outlook with the ad-ins disabled.
See if this makes a difference.
Also, when you create new message, make sure the screen is maximized.

I have been using outlook 2016 for the past month and a half. It worked fine once i discovered that in the folders i needed to turn off the preview and read panes. I could cursor up and down the list as long as these two features where turned off. Writing emails also was no problem.

However, starting a week ago my problems started. I have not done any changes to jaws still running the august build of 17.

Anyways, what is now happening is i can start writing an email and while writing that email suddenly speech slows down and eventually stops. Jaws can be reloaded with the windows key plus jaws key plus f4. Speech comes back, however, outlook says that it has stopped responding and needs to close. Reading emails and everything else works fine its just that i can not write an email message.

Its driving me nuts. And of course the sighted people are all blaming jaws.
However, nothing has changed in jaws. However, i do know that the windows operating system has been patched several times during the week as well as outlook itself has been patched.

Any and all ideas as to what i can get the folks to look at like say missing patches etc would be greatly appreciated.

Am running outlook 2016 and office 2016, have business for skype 2016 known as link, windows 7 and of course jaws 17 august rev believe the number is

Re: Outlook 2016 performance problems with jaws

 

Hi Lauren,

I certainly don't have issues with emails coming in at all and I have Outlook 2016 installed on several desktops and laptops at my business. I did experience very sluggish behavious especially when composing an email, but this pretty much totally went away once I turned off all the real-time, type-as-you-go style spell and grammar checking.

Sieghard

I also have multiple problems with Outlook 2016. Jaws takes a long time to talk when I try to reply. Would removing the add-ins help for this as well?
Also, emails never come through while I have the program open. I always have to close and reopen it to get new emails.

A rep at Freedom Scientific said it's a MS issue and the people at the Disability Answer Desk at MS say there should be no conflicts. Thus, no one has been helpful.

Hello;
Not sure about the disabling the spelling and grammar, however, I have found that disabling ad-ins does work.
As I indicated, you may want to start outlook with the ad-ins disabled to see if this is the issue.
To do this,
Type in the following in the run dialog box.
Outlook /safe:3

Now press enter.
See how your email client performs.

Hello;
Not sure about the disabling the spelling and grammar, however, I have found
that disabling ad-ins does work.
As I indicated, you may want to start outlook with the ad-ins disabled to
see if this is the issue.
To do this,
Type in the following in the run dialog box.
Outlook /safe:3

Now press enter.
See how your email client performs.

I'm hearing to disable the ad ins and disable the spelling and grammar.
Does this happen with other outlook versions. I never had that set up with
previous versions, why this version?
I'll do it anyways, but just wondering.

Hello there;
You may need to check the ad-ins which are running in outlook, Or, you could
try, 1, close outlook, 2, from the run command, type in:
Outlook /safe:3
This loads outlook with the ad-ins disabled.
See if this makes a difference.
Also, when you create new message, make sure the screen is maximized.
You can find the ad-ins in the file menu, Options/ad-ins

I have been using outlook 2016 for the past month and a half. It worked
fine once i discovered that in the folders i needed to turn off the preview
and read panes. I could cursor up and down the list as long as these two
features where turned off. Writing emails also was no problem.

However, starting a week ago my problems started. I have not done any
changes to jaws still running the august build of 17.

Anyways, what is now happening is i can start writing an email and while
writing that email suddenly speech slows down and eventually stops. Jaws
can be reloaded with the windows key plus jaws key plus f4. Speech comes
back, however, outlook says that it has stopped responding and needs to
close. Reading emails and everything else works fine its just that i can
not write an email message.

Its driving me nuts. And of course the sighted people are all blaming jaws.
However, nothing has changed in jaws. However, i do know that the windows
operating system has been patched several times during the week as well as
outlook itself has been patched.

Any and all ideas as to what i can get the folks to look at like say missing
patches etc would be greatly appreciated.

Am running outlook 2016 and office 2016, have business for skype 2016 known

Hello

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to be a presenter (showing desktop) in Skype for Business or Skype and have JAWS be heard by the attendees (do not have JAWS installed on their computer)? I would like to share what I am hearing  from JAWS while navigating in an application.

 

Using Skype for Business (and Office 2013) and JAWS 17 on a laptop with a built in microphone, I can be heard when I speak, however JAWS is not heard by others. Typically, I would find this positive. Yet, I would like the others to hear JAWS as I navigate my desktop and an application in this particular situation.

 

FS tech support said it was not possible to hear JAWS through the computer built in microphone when using Skype for Business or Skype.

 

I appreciate any suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Cathy

Unfortunately, my experience has pretty much mirrored what Lauren has shared
here regarding issues with Jaws and Outlook 2016.

There are many times when I'm wondering whether I should look for another
e-mail client, or not renew my Jaws SMA after Jaws 18, because e-mail is so
central to much of what I do.

Hi-
I am running into a problem with a website where it announces clickable constantly, when the text is not actually clickable. It only occurs when using Jaws and FireFox. There is a setting in Jaws that you can turn off, but then nothing is announced as clickable even if it is.
I’m wondering if anyone else has encountered this, and if so, what sites were you on, or have you found any reason/solution for it?
Thanks.
Anne

I've experienced the clickable texts not only using Firefox but Internet
Explorer when visiting some sites. I wish I knew how to stop this extra
verbage without affecting clickable texts that actually do something.

Thank you, but I've already tried this setting, and I don't want to use it, because I don't want Jaws not to announce any clickable.
I'm just curious if this is a common occurrence., or if it is a problem related to this specific site.
Thanks.

Hi,

try this,

now I'm not totally sure about how options will appear in english exactly, but hopefully you might understand.

Go to settings as usual, then,

web html pdf, then, errow down until various, then errow down until "announce attributes of the elements", this particular setting must be disable in order to avoid "clicable" all the time even when is is not an actually clickable object.
