Hi Don,

The only thing my insert-f11 didn't read was the clock. I have four
other items and it read all of them.

How often does FS check to see if their keystrokes really work?

Sometimes, when I encounter this problem, I perform a select all command (Control-A) to select all the text in the PDF document and then copy and paste it into Notepad.  Most of the time, I can then read the entire document using the arroe keys.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am having a problem reading a few PDF articles I have just been sent.

 

Once I open the attachments, via Adobe Acrobat DC, I find that I cannot advance beyond the first page of each article, either via the arrow keys, or the page up and page down keys.

 

Interestingly, when I use my arrow keys and the page up or down keys, the visual sscreen advances with no problem.  In other words, Jaws appears to be  stuck on the first page and is unable to advance through the rest of the file.

 

I’m using Windows 7 and the latest build of Jaws 18 here, along with Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

Any suggestions would be apreciated.

Interesting Ted about not touching the registry.

When I was investigating which screen reader to purchase, I got the
windows blue screen of death. The Jaws tech said to change something in
the registry. The Window-Eyes tech told me how to update the video card.

Like you, I knew better than to touch the registry in Windows 7 and
chose Window-eyes. I think now Jaws does something automatically to
make screen settings go to Windows basic, or perhaps the video card
update I did for Window-eyes made the difference, but no issues with Jaws.

Just glad you confirmed myfeeling of not touching the registry.

SPSS, same issue here

Hello,

     I had the same issue of not being able to use SPSS very well; only allowed me to enter data. I had to have my reader/scribe click on the things I needed, so it’s a piece of work that needs to either be scrapped or redone to more easily work with JAWS. Hey, even the people at my university’s disability center/technology center said that the screen reader didn’t work with all things.

Re: Jaws voicing dates

Dave...
 

Don,

That is very weird. No date setting I know should result in giving a double
emphasis to the date. See what you can do to change that in the Settings
Center for the Default configuration...

Insert+F2
Arrow to Settings Center
Enter
Ctrl+D to work on the default configuration
type date in the edit field
Tab to the list and find the item that tells how JAWS reads the date.
Press spacebar to change to another type.
Tab to OK
Enter

Subject: Jaws voicing dates


Running latest version of Jaws and Win 10.
When Jaws speaks a date like
May 25 2017 it is spoken as
May second 25 2017
Is there a setting to correct this? I am experiencing this on web pages
like the Bard web site and when using MS Word.

Just ast the subject title states.
I am trying to fix my email to classify by date instead of by from or

Is there a command to do this?
Or a shortcut?

Re: response time from Tech support at VFO

 

Oops, that should have been "agree with Dave."


Re: response time from Tech support at VFO

 

I've generally heard back within a couple of days, at most, and this was for complicated problems.

I agree with Don H. that the time has come to ring them up on the phone, particularly if the answer is time critical.

Re: Win 7 VS win 10

 

Mario,

       Again, I cannot answer that question because use of the download manager is typically something that gets set in the browser itself.  I do not use them though I will occasionally call up the download manager after I've finished downloading something.

       You seem to have IE configured such that when a download is requested it automatically opens the download manager.  I have not used Internet Explorer in years so I cannot tell you where to look in settings for this.

Re: touching the registry was Re: safe mode

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Remember my qualification--without a good Windows manual. In the DOS days I didn't mind getting under the hood. I tweaked a program or two with some cookbook instructions, even followed some listings in mags to create some small but useful programs. I remember a book called DOS Power Tools. If you bought it, you got a slew of small utility programs to try. Collections of patches were available from what was then known as Computerized books for the Blind--CBFB. But if there's a good Windows how-to book, I haven't seen it.

Interesting Ted about not touching the registry.

When I was investigating which screen reader to purchase, I got the
windows blue screen of death. The Jaws tech said to change something in
the registry. The Window-Eyes tech told me how to update the video card.

Like you, I knew better than to touch the registry in Windows 7 and
chose Window-eyes. I think now Jaws does something automatically to
make screen settings go to Windows basic, or perhaps the video card
update I did for Window-eyes made the difference, but no issues with Jaws.

Just glad you confirmed myfeeling of not touching the registry.

So you are suggesting hacking the registry to get speech in safe mode? This
is very risky business. How is this accomplished? Please provide explicit,

Unless something has drasticly changed between windows 7 and 10, no
screenreader will work in safe mode. This is because without extensive
modification, Windows does not load audio drivers in safe mode. So while the
screenreader may load, you very likely won't get anything out of it.
