Good question. Depending on the computer model, it is possible to toggle the function and pre program key configurations.

If your suspicion is correct, somewhere on the keyboard is a fN key. Try this combination:
fN+insert+F4 to shut down JAWS.

Hi, Val. First, is your new computer a Dell Computer? If so, try the following.

Your new computer should have a FN key next to the CONTROL key on the left. It should be directly to the right of the CONTROL key.

Try pressing this FN key down, then pressing the ESCAPE key down while the FN key is held down. This should fix your F keys.

Re: jaws and windows 10

GV-Knope, John (Greenville)
 

Hi Val,

Based on what you have described, you want to use the F6 key to navigate in parts of an application and F4 to close JAWS. Is this correct?

I need more information to clarify your question.
If you want to use F6 to move around the parts of the desktop; hold down the WINDOWS key and D to focus the desktop. You can press either TAB or F6 to focus the parts of the desktop.
Most web browsers and many Microsoft applications also let you focus different parts of the workspace using F6.

If you want to close JAWS using F4, hold the insert key and F4.
I hope this helps,
John

Re: Jaws and dropbox

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi,

 

They have definitely changed this and made it somewhat more challenging. If you press spacebar or enter on the “Accounts menu” near the top I was then able to use Control+Shift+F to search for Settings and activate this. I ended up with I think a screen with 4 or 5 unlabelled tabs. The first one which is selected by default is your basic info, the second seems to be about plans and I simply tried the third one which is Security. Here you will find a link or button (can’t remember) to change your password. I was using Jaws 2018 with Chrome on a Windows 10 laptop.

Sieghard

Re: Is it possible to have braille input but no output except Jaws Speech?

John Gurd
 

Exactly so, Steve. There are times when I want to control my PC with the Braille display but only use speech when listening to fiction or long articles on the web. This would be particularly useful on the ElBraille where there is no querty option. Jason suggests just ignore the Braille output which continues to regularly refresh unread. Besides being slightly distracting, the cost of replacing worn-out refreshable Braille cells is very high. I suspect they would last a lot longer if we could suppress this part of the display when it’s not actually being used.

I think you all have it backwards. The layer command turns off speech, which is not what is wanted. Using a braille-style keyboard on a QWERTY device is also not what's wanted. What *is* wanted is just the reverse. Keep the speech, suppress the braille output, input from the braille device (or obviously the QWERTY keyboard).

Re: Is it possible to have braille input but no output except Jaws Speech?

So far as I am aware, you can’t disable the braille output while still using the braille input on a display. However, I can’t think of good reasons to turn off braille output. If you don’t want to read it, then you don’t have to.

Nope, you’ve got it the wrong way around. I want to disable the Braille output, not the speech. But I still want to use the Braille input of the Focus 14 keyboard. It might sound a little strange to some, but with an ElBraille it makes sense for some situations! Is it possible?

i’m sorry I didn’t mean to pose the question that way,
I’m asking about the opposite because I was curious.
Not because I was trying to identify with you using the braille keyboard on the braille display. I really do wish to know if there is a braille input keyboard command regardless of a braille display of whether I can type simulate a braille input and then have it come out on the computer.
I hope I didn’t confuse you guys.

Re: Making a note in excel

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Another even easier way to add a comment since Shift+F2 for me at least is easier than Alt+r then C.

Interestingly enough I just tested this at work where I still use Windows 7, Jaws and Office are the same as on my Windows 10 laptop, and here Jaws reads the comment I type just fine, I can up arrow and it reads the line with my name and if I press enter it actually exits the comments screen and puts me back on the cell where I was, e.g. if I put something in A1, then add a comment and press enter I’m back on A1.

I will definitely have to submit something to FS about Jaws not reading the comments under Windows 10.

Type your comment and hit enter.

Then, I believe you can tab to the next cell or arrow down, etc.

Does the comment then exist along wigth the numeric datum or formula?  Does it have any effect on the processing of the datum?

Hi Brian,

 

Dave’s write, if you use the application key you can arrow to insert comment and hit enter.

Type your comment and hit enter.

Then, I believe you can tab to the next cell or arrow down, etc.

To bring up a list of cells with comments, its control+shift+apostrophe.

 

I do not know if there is a setting to have Jaws automatically read the comments.

 

HTH,

Richard

Excel not only has data but occasionally one needs to make a note about the data. How would I do this in excel?

isn’t there also a braille keyboard input command on John’s so that one can actually use the Home roll like a braille keyboard as input or no?

I’m using an El Braille and there are times when I would like to use my Focus 14 to control the device but just have speech output with the braille display remaining blank. It would be particularly good when using Kurzweil but also other occasions when I want to read quickly and not edit. Is this possible?

Fair enough, but if there is no way for Jaws to speak this information automatically when you move to a cell with a comment, there should definitely be a keystroke to make Jaws speak it.

Perfect, that works, would be nice if Jaws actually read what’s in there, still something for FS to look at and hopefully fix.

Or you can just delete the name from the comment - when you select to Insert a comment, you're at the start of the line where the comment will go and your name is on the line above; press Backspace to delete it letter by letter.

Sieghard,

Here's a suggestion for eliminating the speaking of your name along with comments...

In Excel you designate your name or initials to be used in such comments or giving creation credit. I think it's in the Options/General. Instead of your name or initials, use some other variant of your name that you recognize, but don't use anywhere else. Then try putting that variant into the dictionary manager for Excel and other Office applications to speak nothing.
Let me know if that works.

Hi Mario,

Thanks, that does work, however, it reads my name each time before it reads
the comment. I guess that is because I am the author of the comment. I'll
have to get in touch with Jaws and ask them to fix this or to add a setting
where this can be turned on or off. I can see how in a company where
multiple people edit an Excel sheet this is useful, but I just want to hear
the comment and I'm sure for most private users or those like me who have a
small business would prefer just to hear the comment and nothing else.

Hi Dave and Richard,

This is useful although if I go to Insert Comment and type something
pressing enter doesn't do anything and neither does tab, I have to press
escape first before I can navigate to a different cell, then if I go back it
will say the cell content along with "includes comment.

The Control+Shift+Apostrophy also works great, but it would be really nice
if Jaws could be made to speak the comment after the cell content, e.g. it
would say "2" or whatever value is in the cell and then
"Comment: Number of items in stock" or something along those lines.

This would allow you to still perform calculations including the value of
that cell but to have some more useful information, e.g. I could have the
names of products in column A and across the top I could have sizes and
maybe for this particular order some sizes are "In Stock" and some are
"Backordered". I have received Excel sheets where the person who made that
sheet colour coded this and then provided a legend as to what colour means
what, but it would be nice to be able to add a comment which Jaws then reads
automatically instead of having to check the colour of the cell content.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is possible, if anybody knows maybe they can
share it. If indeed it is not possible then I think FS should add this
functionality.
