Hi,

How are you changing folders?

I have as many Email accounts as you in Outlook 2016 and changing folders has not crashed outlook yet.

 

I use Control+y and then first letter navigation to get to the account I want and hit right arrow to open it and down arrow to the inbox and hit enter.

I keep the ones that are not my main email closed to make it easier to get back to the inbox for this account that I use for most things.

 

Richard

I will try this after they fix 2018 with Outlook 2016. Since email is the main thing I do on the computer, and it is open all the time, I cannot have JAWS 2018 running as it will crash Outlook as soon as I go to change folders and/or email accounts. Since I have 5 active accounts, each time I pop into my email, I check each one. I cannot be bothered with turning 2018 off, launching JAWS 18 each time I check mail, just do it too often. Looking forward to kicking the tires on 2018 as soon as that is fixed. An yes, this was reported via beta form the first day of the release.

Hi!

That is what I did as well. Once you save it as a JPG file! Just press applications or shift+F10 and arrow down to recognize with JAWS, and JAWS will bring up a virtual document that you can read, copy from, and perform commands for a virtual document. This is beautiful!

I would think you would save the scan as a jpg file then perform the Jaws OCR on it.  Least that is what worked for me.

Mail app, again

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

If you want to have a workaround for viewing your messages, here’s what I do. After reading my first message, I delete it and open the new one. However, I pres uparrow immediately, and it usualy reads the other message fine. If not, some of the previous message will read/the whole thing before moving on … if it does. So, about JAWS 2018, I guess the whole thing’s self-voicing now? That is in the installer portion? Haven’t been able to do research because of school stuff, but I guess I should take a few moments out of my busy day to do so. That’s pretty cool though about the CTRL p for the agreement. I don’t usually read em anyway but press the accept button. Remember about my e-mail-reading steps though and don’t worry about reporting it to VFO unless you really want to.

Subject: JAWS 2018 and Edge

 

I have verified that JAWS2018 works with Edge in the stable Creator’s edition of Windows 10.  I did have the Insider build installed and experienced problems with Edge support, so I reverted back to the stable release.

 

I have also noticed problems with the Windows 10 mail program’s reading pane not updating, such that, when you read your first message, then try to read any additional ones, you still get the first message read to you.  However, the screen shows the right thing.

 

I have reported this, and I imagine others have.

 

I wouldn’t be quick to say that the final release of JAWS 2018 will not work with ‘Edge in the Fall Creators’ update, as I imagine they are working on that, and, this is, after all, only the first beta.

 

I will say that I like the new installer.  It is self-voicing.  They tell you to press ctrl-p to hear the agreement and it plays an audio file.  Other than that, it is easier to install JAWS, although the time it takes to actually perform the install seems about the same.  I installed it over a previous version of JAWS and did a stand-alone install.  I got the migration wizard automatically and it performed well.

 

Haven’t tried OCR yet.  Got to find some files to try it with.

Keep in mind this is beta software and they will, no doubt, be tweaking things as the time progresses.  They may have someone lurking on this list, but, just in case, report it using the Beta Report Form at:

There is an easier way that I stumbled upon as saving as anything didn’t appear to be an option.

 

I used the application key to bring up the context menu.

Arrowed down to select all and hit enter.

Then, application key again and arrow to copy and hit enter.

Then, go to Word, or whatever editor you wish to use and do control+v to paste.

 

There it is.

In Word, the thing I first tested pasted as a table.

So did the second page, but it is in a list format.  Pasting it into a plain text editor just had lots of extra line breaks.

 

This is not bad.

I hope they end up adding more OCr features like adding pages to a document, etc.

Hi Don,

Yes, any version of Jaws you install has its own instance. I think this is one of the really good features of Jaws, you could have Jaws 16, 17, 18 and the Beta oif 2018 installed and use any of these versions independently. Especially with beta versions this is good because there are of course often still significatn bugs which need to be fixed and this way you can use whatever version you had before and which you are familiar with in addition to testing the beta version when you want.
Keep in mind that beta versions are called this for a reason and you won't get tech support from regular FS phone support, you have to submit any feedback using the bug report form on the FS website.
Regards,
Sieghard

Subject: newbee confusion

I am a newbee with Jaws beta releases.  So when you install the beta do you now have two versions of Jaws installed?  I see on my desktop my old shortcut for Jaws 18 and now a jaws 2018 shortcut. I have the control alt j shortcut for starting jaws on the Jaws 18 so when I hit control alt j Jaws 18 starts.  So that is why I could not get OCR to work.  If I load Jaws with the Jaws 2018 shortcut it seems that OCR works great. Sorry for my confusion.


JAWS 2018 and Edge

Joseph Norton
 

I have verified that JAWS2018 works with Edge in the stable Creator’s edition of Windows 10.  I did have the Insider build installed and experienced problems with Edge support, so I reverted back to the stable release.

 

I have also noticed problems with the Windows 10 mail program’s reading pane not updating, such that, when you read your first message, then try to read any additional ones, you still get the first message read to you.  However, the screen shows the right thing.

 

I have reported this, and I imagine others have.

 

I wouldn’t be quick to say that the final release of JAWS 2018 will not work with ‘Edge in the Fall Creators’ update, as I imagine they are working on that, and, this is, after all, only the first beta.

 

I will say that I like the new installer.  It is self-voicing.  They tell you to press ctrl-p to hear the agreement and it plays an audio file.  Other than that, it is easier to install JAWS, although the time it takes to actually perform the install seems about the same.  I installed it over a previous version of JAWS and did a stand-alone install.  I got the migration wizard automatically and it performed well.

 

Haven’t tried OCR yet.  Got to find some files to try it with.
