This doesn’t work for me. When I press insert+space and then shift+s with speech on demand mode on nothing happens. I have tried over and over again with no success. I am using Eloquence if that matters.

Insert+Space, S to toggle between “speech on demand” and “full speech”. When in Speech on Demand mode, Insert+Space, Shift+S to toggle between speech on demand and speech entirely turned off (“speech mute”, as it’s called).

What is the keystroke for toggling between speech on and either speech mute or speech on demand?

 

Thank you.

Unfortunately, it does not work in the current version of Jaws2018, but it does work in the previous version of Jaws2018.  This has been reported to BFO, so hopefully they will come up with a fix soon.

The windows mail program in windows 10 works well with jaws 18 but not 2018.

I can not read what I wrote. Even insert I, control left or right arrow  says nothing, arrowing up or down nothing is spoken. Am I the only person having this problem?

Re: GMail web site not reading middle message subject column?

Hello Matthew,
I attempted to duplicate your results using both JAWS 18 and 2018 to
see whether there was a difference and I did not discover one on the
gmail site. With smart navigation off and the JAWS document
presentation setting set to screen layout, both JAWS versions read
across as I down arrowed through the emails. The information that was
read was the check box with the sender's name, followed by the subject
a preview of the message and the time. I am wondering which browser
you are using? I conducted this evaluation using Internet Explorer 11
on a Windows 10 machine.
I also opted not to migrate my settings between the two versions.

I am using the basic html format. If I change the screen layout to

time. I wish it to read all the way across as I down arrow. This way I
can check the box after hearing the message particulars. Smart
navigation is off with document presentation at screen layout. In Jaws
18, it would read all the way across, but in 2018 it just reads the
sender and the date, skipping the middle columns.
Thanks,
Matthew

Hello Matthew,
Which view are you in for gmail standard or basic HTML? If the
former, you may want to consider switching to the basic HTML view. I
have smart navigation turned off and JAWS document presentation set to
the simple layout in JAWS 2018 and mine reads the check box, sender,
subject and time as I down arrow.

You might check with your vendor.
