Re: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18

Michael Mote
 

Hi Nancy! I think the answer depends on what you're using for your chat
program. I've seen the integration of the phone system with the chat
feature enabled before. Sometimes, you can set this up to display in
separate windows. Sometimes, you have to use F6 to move between the
different parts of the program. Perhaps, control tab would get you to the
chat window. I would have to know more about what type of program you're
using.

Subject: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18


Hi List,

We're starting to use a phone system at work that includes chat capability.
I'm new to Windows 10 and to JAWS so struggling a little to keep up.

Since apparently I'm supposed to be able to listen to JAWS and the TTS at
the same time, if I'm focusing on JAWS when a chat message comes in and is
spoken by the TTS, is there a way to have the message reread so I can hear
what I missed the first time?

Are there any command conflicts between JAWS and Narrator if they have to
both run at the same time?

Hope that makes sense.

Nancy

This sounds like an issue for the IT department.There are so many variables with a system like that.

What phone system is it? Is it proprietary?
Does it speak or does Jaws?
If Jaws is reading the chat window then speech history will have the message. insert + spacebar then h.
Generally you dont want two screen readers running at the same time.

Re: Fax by email services?

I used e-fax several years ago.

You receive an e-mail with information on incoming faxes and an link to
retreive it.
At that time they used .TIF format but their software was easy to use.

Hi all - I'm in need of a fax-by-email service and am wondering which are
compatible with JAWS.

Now, you might think, as I did, that the interface to the service would be
through email, so it would be as accessible (or not accessible ha ha) as MS
Outlook or whatever email client one uses. But, I started looking into eFax
just as one example, and it talked about their "friendly and easy to use web
interface", which immediately made me worry that the web interface might not
be accessible, because, as we all know, "friendly web interfaces" are all
too often NOT accessible at all.

Okay, I'll stop being bitter now and summarize my question:

Which fax-by-email services are people using, and has JAWS presented any
problem or are they pretty easy to use?

Thanks.

problem with Mail message rules in Outlook 2010

Shannon
 

Hello all.
I have several message rules set up in Outlook 2010. I went to use them to clean up my inbox this morning.

Using what I believe (but am not positive is a clean install of JAWS 18) I am unable to choose which rule to run.
When I go into Manage rules and alerts, and then Choose Run Now, I am taken to a page that has a list of all the rules I have created but JAWS will not read this list. I can choose to select all or deselect all with the buttons but I can't choose any particular rule. The jaws Key will read out a few but there are more that are not inside the box until you arrow down through the list. The Jaws key doesn’t report whether the items are checked or not.
What is wrong? Why can't I arrow down through this list and press space bar to check or uncheck the items I want?
How do I do this?
Thanks
Shannon


Non conforming table won't read field contents

Shannon
 

Hello,
I am working with our time keeping program. It is totally non-conforming. This is one that I have had to get third party scripts written for.
Here is my current issue and I don't know if it also needs scripting or if I just don't know how to make JAWS read.
I use Control tab to jump from a table into another table. The first two cells read when I tab to them but the next three do not read at all when I land in them
The first one has the job name and number. The second has the code for the work done. The third is a graphical holding place that shows different indicators, which I don't expect to read. The Fourth and fifth have the start and end times.
These are my problem. I need to know what time is the in and out. The arrow keys letter by letter will read the info but the info is not said when I land on it. Letter by letter is very inefficient.
The read cell doesn't work since this is not a recognized table. The insert Tab to read field and contents only tells me that it is an edit box. The up arrow actually will move me up and down in the table, not leaving me where I need to be.
Is there a setting that will tell Jaws to move the cursor to the next field and read the contents automatically?
Is there another set of keys that will read the current field?

Thanks
Shannon

Hi folks,

If this has been covered in another thread please accept my apologies. I haven't been reading messages with generic titles like "a couple things" (not a real title recently).

Using Research It I can't get definitions from Research It. I've noticed this for the past three days or so.

Re: A Couple of Questions

Windows does not give size info for folders. Just files and drives. If you want to know the size of a folder you have to alt + enter on the folder then use the jaws cursor to read the size of the folder by arrowing up until you hear the size of the folder.

Hello Everyone,

I migrated to JAWS last month. I am still earning things of course.

My first question is for Windows 7, Windows Explorer. If I go through the list of folders etc. using the up or down arrow, how do I hear the amount of space that specific folder or drive is using?

Next I just used Duxbury for the first time since I migrated. I got a message asking me if I wanted to have the JAWS scripts installed. I selected yes and the Duxbury restarted as indicated. I was wondering if there may be other JAWS scripts which I may find of use. How do I find a list? Does Goldwave have a similar script? I did not get a similar prompt when I used Goldwave in the past few weeks.

Thanks in advance for any help.

For me the size column is only filled for drive or file nodes, not
folders. The properties method will work for folders as well.

Re: My problem with latest update

Paul Hunt <prhunt1@...>
 

Hello everybody. After working on this issue with the Microsoft Accessibility Answer Desk, I know what actually happens. When JAWS hangs up, I lose speech and Braille, JAWS is actually still running. To stop it, you can kill the JAWS service. To do this, run Narrator, then bring up the task manager using the Alt+x keystroke to bring up the menu then press the letter t. Use first letter navigation to find the application file for JAWS. Tab to the End button and activate it. This will allow you to restart JAWS. You're not done. Please call VFO Technical support and report the issue. Tell the tech support person to associate your issue with Ticket 304937. As a work around, you can shut down JAWS, start your application with Narrator, exit Narrator and restart JAWS.

Hi List,

 

                Actually, I have been having this same problem with the last 4 updates. When I am using JAWS 18 on my Windows 10 machine, it will work fine for a while; however, JAWS suddenly crashes without notice. It always happens when I am using Microsoft software, including Outlook 2013, Word 2013 and Internet Explorer 11.

 

                The problem first occurred in the early versions of JAWS 18, then it was fixed in a few builds, then it started occurring again around January or February. The latest update worked fine for about 2 hours, so I thought they had it fixed again, but then it crashed.

 

                When JAWS 18 crashes, I cannot seem to generate an error report and other screen readers won’t work properly either, so I have to turn off my PC and turn it on again with the on/off button.

 

                JAWS 17 works fine all the time, so I am unloading JAWS 18 and launching JAWS 17 until I can get this fix.

 

                Any help will be appreciated.

 

                Thanks in advance,

 

                Don
