Why does not Skype close when I hit alt+F4?

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

When I am in Skype, hitting alt+F4 does not seem *really* to close the application.  This is also true if I go to the Skype <file> menu and select <close>.  When I use alt+tab to move among applications, Skype remains in that loop.  So, how can I *really* close Skype?

 

Thanks,

Richard

I solved the problem. I made sure that I installed the latest JAWS update and then I went and uninstalled Skype, downloaded the latest version from the site and now everything is back up. I made sure that I restarted my computer after uninstalling and reinstalling programs just to be on the safe side.  Also, now that I think about it, I haven’t used the D Lee scripts on the last 4 computers in my lab that I have put Skype on. Honestly the built in accessibility has worked just fine for me. Perhaps when I run into something that I can’t do with the built in accessibility then I will bawk and whine.

Re: shut down Windows 10?

 

Mario,

          The -t parameter is followed by a number between 0 and 600 that says how many seconds are to elapse before the shutdown, with the other parameters specified, will begin.  The default with no -t parameter is 30 seconds.  Using "-t 0" means now, now, do it NOW!

          For all the nauseating details, see:

x-unicode  or x-western.  Is there even a control type for this in Jaws?


I've tried changing verbosity and sound schemes but it does not go away.  I've tried to label the element but it can't be labelled.

I suppose I could try to change it in the speech dictionary.


Did that but only works when editing a message. Not while reading one.

I have only 1 more suggestion. Perhaps the shutdown is being blocked by
an open application.

Try shutting down with the force option.

In the run box, type:
shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Hello Mario,

You should do a test.

First make sure that you have the shutdown.exe program in the folder:
c:\windows\system32

In Windows 7, it should be visible in the local C: tree structure.
If not, go to the command prompt and type:
dir c:\windows\shutdown.exe /s

The "/s" option is necessary to search through the sub directories of
c:\windows\
It may take a few minutes for the search to complete.

If you have a shutdown.exe program, make note of the exact path.

Then do the test by typing manually this restart command.

Open the run box with the Windows key plus r
type: shutdown.exe -r -t 00

You might have to precede the shutdown.exe with the entire path.
c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

If the test works, then the desktop shortcut must be looked as to why it
isn't executing the command.

Go to the desktop with the Windows key plus d.
Highlight the shortcut and press ENTER.

To examine the desktop shortcut, highlight it and press alt plus ENTER.
Tab between the target and the shortcut hot key fields.
The shortcut target field should contain the command. The hot key might
not be right.
Tab to the ok or cancel buttons.

Good luck.

Good Morning David,

I guess that both the dash and the slash is correct.

I just tried both from the run box and both work.

A few days ago I finally searched for the shutdown.exe syntax and I got
this web site.

http://ss64.com/nt/shutdown.html

It uses the slash for the command line options.

I created the two short cuts for my desktop. Both the shutdown and
restart have the slash and they both work.

Regards.

Hello David,

Thanks for the steps to create the new shortcut.
I finally found time to Google the actual syntax for the shutdown
command.

The target line syntax, you gave is not correct.
Shutdown -s -t 0

The "-" dash should be "/" slash.
The /s is for shutdown. Reboot is /r.

The "01" (at the end of the line is the time until shutdown.

For reboot it should be:
shutdown.exe /r /t 00

This works in both Windows 7 and 10.

Hello;

Ctrl+spacebar to unselect any icon,

Now choose shortcut,

3, in the edit box type in,
Shutdown -s -t 0

Now tab next, you can give the shortcut a name, example,
Shortcut.exe,
Now go to finish.
Now if you desire, you could create a hotkey for the shortcut.
If you wanted to have a shortcut to restart you would use the same
steps,
instead of zero at the end, use, 01
Hope this helps.

It occurred to me that I should just put these out on my Google Drive in case anyone wants to take a look and play with these.  The one for a business sized #10 envelope is even useful at home.  The other two are examples, anonymized, that I did for two different clients for actual work use.  The one that is the client intake form I did not put in all of the checkboxes that would be necessary under the section regarding prior health conditions, only the first two, for abdominal pain an allergies, because this was a draft, not final, copy.  Activating any of the below listed links will immediately download the noted Word document template that employs fill-in only text fields and/or checkboxes to your computer.  If you have Protected Mode enabled in MS-Word you will have to unprotect the template before you can use it.  After it is saved, and unprotected if necessary, opening the template creates a new document ready for filling in and printing and/or saving.  If you want to actually edit a form template you must open MS-Word, choose the Open File option, navigate to the template file (dot dotx file), and open it then go to the Developer Ribbon to the Restrict Editing button then remove the editing restriction.  You have to put the editing restriction back on when you're done if you don't want anything other than the various text fields and checkboxes to be able to be filled in or checked/unchecked when a new instance of a document is created using the document template file (dot dotx file).

J18.0.2324 Update Available, Download Links & What's New

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below are the direct download links for the J18 update released today.  It's J18.0.2324 & what's new in this release.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 18.0.2324 (January 2017)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 18 December 2016 release and the January 2017 update.
 
To download the latest release, visit the
Downloads web page.
 
JAWS
list of 7 items
• Improved JAWS interoperability with ZoomText 11 when using the JAWS laptop keyboard layout, both of which use the CAPS LOCK key as a modifier. For users
that plan to run both JAWS and ZoomText using the JAWS Laptop layout, it is recommended you change the keyboard configuration in ZoomText 11 by selecting
the Import HotKeys option under Command Keys and choosing the configuration named: "ZT_JAWS_Laptop_en-US.zxc". This will add the ALT key to many of the
ZoomText commands that use CAPS LOCK in a key combination that conflicts with a keystroke in the JAWS Laptop layout. The only change for JAWS will be the
process of toggling Caps lock on or off. You will need to press the CAPS LOCK key three times quickly in order to toggle it when using JAWS 18 Laptop layout
with ZoomText 11.
• Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+F4 would not quit JAWS if focus was in Excel.
• Addressed an issue with pasting text into an application during a JAWS Tandem session.
• Improved JAWS automatic announcements of Windows 10 notifications.
• Addressed an issue with JAWS not working as expected when trying to rename a custom label (INSERT+CTRL+TAB).
• Resolved an issue where the Touch Cursor would not detect progress bar updates unless the Touch Cursor was moved away from the progress bar and then
back to it.
• Removed the People Search Research It lookup source as the web site used to retrieve results is no longer available. We hope to add it back in the future
once another reliable service is found.
list end
 
Web Browsers
list of 7 items
• Added support for the ARIA-details property in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
• Addressed issues where JAWS was causing Internet Explorer to become sluggish or unexpectedly close on certain pages.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was sometimes double speaking on HTML menu items in Internet Explorer 11.
• When attempting to save a web page in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where both JAWS and Chrome would become unresponsive.
• Resolved an issue reported by the SSA where JAWS was not reading multiple lines above an edit field when navigating using Navigation Quick Keys or TAB.
• Resolved an issue reported by the SSA where JAWS was not reading combo box labels as expected.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not speaking the ARIA-expanded attribute on links when tabbing.
list end
 
Microsoft Outlook
list of 1 items
• You can now navigate Outlook 2016 message lists using JAWS table reading commands (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys) just like reading a table in a document or web
page. This makes it much easier to navigate and read message headers. You can even use the table layer (INSERT+SPACEBAR, T) where you can navigate with
just the ARROW keys, which makes it convenient if you want to move quickly by row, but continue to hear the same column.
list end
 
Microsoft Word
list of 1 items
• Addressed a customer reported issue where JAWS was not working as expected in the Word Count dialog box.
list end
 
Enhancements in JAWS 18.0.2118 (December 2016)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 18 release and the December 2016 update.
 
JAWS
list of 11 items
• The keystroke to announce the comment at the cursor location in a Word document as well as all of the JAWS Tandem keystrokes can now be found using the
JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
• You can now press a braille display cursor router button on a file in Windows Explorer to rename the file.
• Addressed an issue with JAWS not reading as expected after using the mouse to minimize or close the Virtual Viewer.
• Resolved an issue where some controls in the Windows Update dialog box were not being correctly identified as links when using Touch or Mouse Echo.
• When changing the setting for the User Pan Mode option in Settings Center, resolved a reported issue where the corresponding option in Quick Settings
was not getting changed.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with braille flash messages using the "err" type not working when the flash message verbosity was set to Advanced.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was unexpectedly restarting under some circumstances when using the Auto Graphics Labeler.
• Addressed reported issues with some Research It lookup sources not working as expected in both the Spanish and German versions of JAWS.
• A customer using the Spanish version of JAWS reported several English messages and keystroke conflicts. These have been resolved.
• In response to customer feedback, if a French keyboard has been added in Windows Regional Settings and LEFT ALT+LEFT SHIFT is pressed to switch the keyboard
language, JAWS now announces when the keyboard language changes to French.
• This update includes the latest braille display drivers from Humanware for the Brailliant BI and BrailleNote Touch.
list end
 
JAWS Touch Support
list of 4 items
• The three-finger flick down and three-finger flick up gestures now cycle between the panes in various applications including the Windows Mail app, Microsoft
Word, and JAWS Settings Center. This is similar to pressing F6 or SHIFT+F6 on the keyboard.
• When you move to a slider control using touch, you can now flick up or down with one finger to adjust the value of the slider.
• You can now review the contents of a command prompt window using touch gestures.
• As you explore the screen with the touch keyboard active, JAWS now plays a sound to indicate when you are on a keyboard button.
list end
 
Vocalizer Expressive 2.2
list of 5 items
• Resolved an issue where the Set Language as Primary button was not available as expected in the Voice Adjustment dialog box when configuring voice profiles
for certain languages.
• When creating a new voice profile, addressed an issue with certain languages where no voices were being listed in the Person combo box.
• Resolved issues with the Speak Sample button not working as expected when creating a new voice profile.
• Resolved a reported issue where there were no pauses in speech when the punctuation level was set to none.
• Addressed an issue where it was not possible to switch to the English South Africa voice using the Select a Language dialog box (WINDOWS Key+CTRL+L).
list end
 
Adobe Acrobat
list of 2 items
• While navigating in PDF documents, resolved an issue where focus was unexpectedly moving to a different location in the document.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading graphics correctly in Acrobat Reader DC.
list end
 
Microsoft Excel
list of 2 items
• In the Excel 2016 spell checker, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was saying "no selected item" while navigating the list of suggestions.
• Updated the documentation for the Move to Worksheet keystroke (CTRL+SHIFT+S) to make it easier to locate using the JAWS Commands Search.
list end
 
Microsoft Outlook
list of 4 items
• Resolved a customer reported issue where messages were automatically being read even when the Messages Automatically Read option in Quick Settings was
turned off.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not correctly speaking the state of check boxes when creating custom search folders.

• When using the CTRL+ALT+1 through 4 keystrokes to change the Calendar view in Outlook 2016, addressed an issue where JAWS was sometimes not indicating
the view gaining focus.

Microsoft Word

• Added a new Quick Settings option, Include Blank Paragraphs For Paragraph Navigation, to specify whether or not blank paragraphs are included when using
CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW. When enabled, navigation in the Word document with CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW will include blank lines as well
as paragraphs with text. This setting is off by default which means that blank lines are skipped.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with Spanish JAWS where pressing CTRL+SHIFT+COMMA or CTRL+SHIFT+PERIOD in a Spanish version of Office to decrease
or increase the font point size was not working as expected.
• JAWS now provides better access to form fields in unprotected documents in Word 2016.

Skype

• JAWS now announces Sign in and Sign out notifications as well as other miscellaneous alerts that were not previously being announced reliably.
list end
 
Web Browsers
list of 14 items
• JAWS now includes the contents of ARIA live regions in Braille Structured Mode. A good example to see this is Google Sheets, Google's web-based spreadsheet
program. Before this change, JAWS could speak cell coordinates or contents, but this information was not displayed in braille. Now, JAWS shows in braille
not only cell coordinates such as a1, a2 etc., but can also display the entire cell contents, or what is currently being typed into a cell.
• Added support for the ARIA 1.1 features aria-posinset and aria-setsize on menu items in Firefox and on tab controls in Internet Explorer.
• In Firefox, added support for the aria-errormessage, aria-rowindex, and aria-colindex ARIA 1.1 properties, as well as role="none" and the new "figure"
role.
• Added JAWS support for the ARIA 1.1 error message relation in Internet Explorer.
• Addressed a reported issue with navigating to and activating tab controls on web pages in Firefox.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where lists inside of a Navigation region on certain web pages were not being displayed correctly in Firefox.
• Addressed an issue with the "new tab page" message being announced at inappropriate times. This message should now only be heard when a browser tab opens
or closes.
• In Internet Explorer, addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading labels for clickable elements.
• Resolved reported issues encountered by some users when completing the JAWS Certification Exam.
• Resolved issues with JAWS reporting the incorrect state of check boxes when the Display Settings (DPI) was set higher than 100 percent which is often
the case on touch screen laptops and tablets.
• When selecting text in a multiline edit field in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where the selected text was not being indicated in braille.
• Addressed issues with form fields that use the aria-labelledby attribute not being seen by JAWS in Internet Explorer the same as they are in Firefox.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not correctly announcing links that contain the aria-describedby attribute in Internet Explorer.
• In Internet Explorer, resolved reported issues where check boxes and links were not working as expected inside of a div element using an ARIA role of
"grid". In addition, pressing INSERT+CTRL+B for a list of buttons on the page now works as expected inside an ARIA grid.

Take care.

Re: Jaws says x-unicode in Thunderbird

 

Dave,

          There is a relatively huge "information blackout" risk in having an e-mail client do a forced conversion on HTML formatted messages to plain text.

          There are many occasions where things like YouTube videos, audio snippets that employ web links to play, photos (hopefully with alternative text, but not always), and the like are genuinely at the heart of the message sent and can be conveniently triggered to "do their thing" from the message itself.

           It's not that you can't do what you're proposing, but based on a lot of what I've observed about how e-mail gets sent these days in both academic and business envirionments you're just asking for a situation where you really have no idea that you've missed something and can potentially look really foolish when/if you reply asking, "What did you send this to me for?   It said (something like take a look/listen) and there's nothing to look at/listen to."  Things can rapidly go downhill from there.

x-unicode  or x-western.  Is there even a control type for this in Jaws?


I've tried changing verbosity and sound schemes but it does not go away.  I've tried to label the element but it can't be labelled.

I suppose I could try to change it in the speech dictionary.


Did that but only works when editing a message. Not while reading one.
