Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

Tony Malykh
 

Yes, the apps are pinned to the taskbar. Windows+digit shortcut works,
but it is not reliable. It works roughly 4 out of 5 times. That is my
problem.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter shortcuts open new window of Cygwin or other app. I
need a shortcut to switch to an already running window of Cygwin.

Subject: Jaws script for switching between applications

Hi all,

I am typically running several application: IE, CMD, Cygwin and Visual
Studio. I am looking for a keyboard shortcut to switch to a particular
application.

For example, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut that would switch me
to a cygwin window. I don't want to press Alt-TAB multiple times and look
for the right window in the list of running applications. I am using braille
display, and alt-tabbing takes too long time. I switch applications often,
and I am looking for more effective way to switch between applications.

For example, I would love to have a script that would sweitch me to the
cygwin window no matter what application is currently active and no matter
how long ago I used cygwin the last time. Then I would love to assign a
keyboard shortcut to this script, something like
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C, for example. And I would have a peace of mind,
knowing that wherever I am, I can always switch to cygwin in just a single
keystroke.

Windows key + numbers. This is what I'm currently using. For example I
have Windows key + 2 switches me to IE. The problem with it is that it
is frustratingly unreliable. They only work about 80% of the times,
and for the remaining 20% they set the focus to the task bar.
Sometimes the success rate goes down even lower than 50%, at which
point I have to reboot my computer. I've had this problem on two
computers, one of which had a brand new windows. By the way, does anyone
else experience the unreliability of this shortcut, or only me?


Alt-tab is NOT what I'm looking for, since it switches to the last
used application. I would like to have one shourtcut for IE, another
for MCD and so on, so that whenever I want to switch to IE I would
press that shourtcut just once. Pressing Alt-tab multiple times surely can
switch me to any running app, but this way is too slow, I am looking for a
more efficient solution.

Insert+f10 is NOT what I'm looking for. The reason is the same as for
alt-tab: it requires finding the right app in the list.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter is NOT what I'm looking for. You can assign this type
of shortcuts in the properties of applications on the desktop. But
that would start a new application instead of switching to an existing
one.

So:
1. Is there a way to make windows key + number keyboard shortcut more
reliable?
Or:
2. Is there a way to assign keyboard shortcuts to specific apps?
Maybe a jaws script or something?

And again, I would like to reiterate what I need. I whish I could switch to
cygwin with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C, and switch to internet explorer with
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I, and so on.

I am not afraid of hacking, so if there is either a jaws script, or any
other hacky script, that can switch me to a particular application and that
can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut, please let me know.



I'm using the latest Windows 10 and Jaws 17.

Thanks
Tony

Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

Mario
 

Tony, if you have desktop shortcuts for the programs you want to use,
and shortcuts assigned to them, for example, cygwin is control+alt+c,
pressing the shortcut will switch you to that program, even if it's in
the middle of doing something. I don't know if this will work for the
command prompt. the only time I think it won't work for what you want is
if the program is a multi session program, meaning it can be used even
if it is open already.

have you tried this, and does it work for you?

Where is the list of installed updates?

Ann Byrne
 

I wrote FS concerning the error message when I tried to install JAWS on my student's windows 8 lap top. the response was to check for a windows file
KB2999226
that should be there and to install it if it isn't.

In windows 8, how do I find out whether this is installed? if not, how do I find/install it?

Thanks,


Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

Peter Holdstock <ptrholdstock@...>
 

Hi. Regarding the windows key and number solution. Are the applications that you're wanting to use pinned to the taskbar? If not, could the reliability problem you're having with that solution be because if you haven't already opened the applications after logging onto windows, they won't already be in the taskbar and therefore won't have a number assigned to them and if you then open them in a different order each time, they would have a different number assigned to them as Windows numbers them according to the order they are pinned to the taskbar and then for any unpinned applications, the order that they are opened. Have you tried unpinning everything from the taskbar, then pinning each application back to the taskbar in the order that you'd like to use them. Then the shortcut numbers assigned to these applications should hopefully remain consistent.

Brian, while changing the view sort to threaded, I find that JAWS does not read any thing when tabbing into the message list of any folder that has been created by the user. so, the message list for local folders are not read. the message list for the inbox, drafts, etc still read as usual.

I am using JAWS 16 and I think this problem also occurs when using NVDA, so it's not a JAWS 18 only problem. I would imagine users of JAWS 17 are affected also. yes, it's being worked on and I hope the fix comes out soon.

I've just confirmed that this is a JAWS issue with unthreaded view, at least using JAWS 18.0, Thunderbird version 52, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version 1703.

It makes no difference whether the Thunderbird window is maximized or not. If the view is unthreaded JAWS will not read anything in the inbox list of messages. Switched to threaded it behaves normally.

This behavior is not exhibited in NVDA. I did not try Window Eyes nor Narrator, as this is enough to confirm that the issue seems to be tied to how JAWS interacts with unthreaded view in Thunderbird. I would definitely get VFO tech support involved.

I used Linda mainly on my Iphone which the app was quite then accessible. I have not tried it with Jaws it sort of could work with NVDA.

It depends how your library have set it up.

Hello list,

So was checking out the resources available with my library card and I noticed that among other things, I can get access to Lynda.com for free. No unsubstantial as it’s a paid service.

Anyway, Just thought I’d ask if anyone’s used Lynda.com and can comment on the service or site’s accessibility with screen readers (in my case JFW 18)? I know that most likely, a lot of courses will be visual in nature, but that aside, is it usable?

you may try empting out the temp folder and maybe even remove all of the jaws installed folders and start over.

Trying to install JAWS 18 latest version on my student's windows 8.0 machine. After some whirring and clicking and a lot of waiting, I get the message:
Unable to install required component JAWS run time, the process will now end. With of course an okay button. I tried using the JAWS 18 disk, and I tried using a download of yesterday's update. Same message. Any ideas????

thanks,

What is the alternate command to display items in the System Tray? INSERT plus F11, and what’s the other one?

 

Thank you.

Is this computer part of an active directory network?
Yesterday I did a update from Jaws, it did not work gave me some .DLL problem.
I downloaded the exe from Jaws web site and the install was working, I just got a call from other user saying she is having some problems!
But this is on Windows 7 boxes!

I do know that my install got messed with cumulative Windows updates but there are people here with more expertise than I have who can I am sure solve this.

don't know. I can't figure why Run Time JAWS, of all things, won't
install. I did write FS last night but haven't heard back yet.

I resorted to an uninstall via the Windows 10 control panel, and then
reinstalled from the download. I appreciated that the JAWS uninstall
offered to retain my personalised settings, which was about 95%
successful.

Re: Using Jaws with Thunderbird

Thanks for your very useful help. It was in there in 45.5 but I did not hear it say " Tab". Now I did.

Thanks again.

Morey,
