Re: [Bulk] How to simulate Shift+left mouse click?

Dave...
 

Gerardo,

Now that's a very interesting question. I actually have no idea. I have a
full keyboard connected to my laptop docking station so I didn't try it on
the laptop itself.

Hope someone else can answer that.

Asunto: RE: [Bulk] How to simulate Shift+left mouse click?

Gerardo,

JAWS simulates the left mouse click with the slash key on the numpad. So as
Dave suggests, you may be able to achieve the result you want by pressing
this key along with the shift key.

However, I just went into JAWS key identifier mode and tried this key
combination. JAWS says it enables "selecting items contiguously." So if you
try it, you'll need to listen to what JAWS verbalizes.

If shift+numpaid slash doesn't work as you need, try one of the following
long shots:

1. First press JAWS key+3 on the number row above the letters. This is the
pass-through key that tells JAWS to treat the next keystroke not as a JAWS
function, but as whatever function that keystroke has in the application.
Then press shift+numpad slash and see what happens.

2. As an even more farfetched option, try shift+JAWS key+numpaid slash. I
doubt it will work, but I don't think it could do any harm.

Re: [Bulk] Another odd problem

Dave...
 

Sandy,

I'll blame myself partly for taking that inference. It depends on how one
reads the message.

In any case, now I don't know what to offer. I have a desktop computer with
the Nvidea GForce 9500 as well, and no problems with it. My Dell laptop has
the NVIDIA NVS 4200M (WDDM) and my previous one had (I think) the IBM
Mobile 935 chip set.

Any possibility that you have a dual display configuration on your computer?

I know that the docking station (again I'm presuming you have one) has it's
own display chipset inside, so that I could have two active monitors -- the
one attached to the laptop, and another connected to the docking station.

I recall years ago that I was having some problems when I reconnected to the
dock, but not sure if it was as severe as yours.

In any case I decided to disconnect the second display from the dock and
disable the second video chipset internal to the dock, and my problems went
away.

I think my issue revolved around JAWS having to switch back and forth
between these two drivers abruptly when docking and undocking.

Again not sure if you have a laptop and docking station, but if you do, you
might want someone to look at your video display properties and see if you
have two different displays enabled.

That also has never been a problem. I would not have put up with that
one
very long and my IT person would have been brought to task for not
fixing
it.

It may be that your Dell has a video card that's just not happy with
JAWS,
or that you have another mirror driver (like Dameware) that's
interfering.
You might want to check for that. I do not let anyone work on my laptop
remotely if their process requires installing a mirror driver.

Some tricks to install the latest version of Registry Mechanic with JAWS

Anders Boholdt-Petersen
 

Hi everyone,

Earlier I have used Registry Mechanic when I will optimize my registry
database. But after PC Tools has released the latest version, it is not
posible to install this version with JAWS, since PC Tools has changed the
interface for the installer.

I therefore will ask on this list:
Have any person a trick I can tried so I can install the latest version
(e.g. some scripts), or alternativly a better program for optimizing of the
Windows registry database I can use where the accessibility is OK with JAWS?



You can download the latest version of Registry Mechanic here:
http://www.pctools.com/downloads/rminstall.exe
.

Very thanks for the answer, and have a nice day.

Regards,
Anders

Rik,

Then your headphones are being considered the default. You may need
to look at your audio devices in the Control Panel to see What sound
devices are there, in addition to the headset. Then make sure that
all are enabled.
Sounds like JAWS is not aware of any sound card aside from the
headset, and it needs to be told that there is an internal sound chip
that it can use.

Thanks, Dave.
I'm afraid I have to report it was no dice with that solution.
Under my Sound Card options in the JAWS Utilities, there is no
listing for Headphones.
The Windows Sound Default is checked already.
Other ideas?

As it happens, I just got finished with an extended session with
Freedom Scientific tech support.
The result was that no one could figure it out.
They used a Tandem JAWS session with me. The tech conferred with
several others while with me.
They tried several things, exploring and changing many of the
settings in my pc's sound settings, to no avail.

We even closed JAWS 13 and launched version 12, to find exactly the
similar behavior.
We used other voice profiles, SAPI and realspeak. Same thing.
There is sound from JAWS only when the headphone jack is plugged in.
Other
sound devices work fine from speakers connected to the audio jack on
back of my pc.

Finally I have just plugged my speakers into the headphone jack. They
are very little speakers, not big ones. but at least I can use JAWS
and not be tethered by the headphones.

We then even tried this. We launched Microsoft Narrator. And guess what?
The
behavior is the same. It only speaks with the headphone jack engaged.
So from this, the FS conclusion or hypothesis was that perhaps
something weird has happened to my sound card, as it relates to the
performance of the text to speech engine.

I do not have any particular technical skill to tackle this, as far
as what to try next.

I don't expect my tech support session with Dell, will be completely
easy.
But I guess that is what is needed at this point. And I will have to
do it another time. Lots to do, already a bit late from this
unanticipated tech glitch.

Thanks very much for any and all thoughts and suggestions.

Richard

Sure. You've got JAWS exclusively pointing to that headphone jack as
its only allowed device. When you disconnect, you lose JAWS.

First, while the headphone jack is connected (so you can hear):
Go to the JAWS application with Insert+J Utilities menu Sound Card
Submenu Arrow through the list (usually at least two) Select Windows
default instead of your headphones


that should fix it.

Yes, I am in a bit of an emergency here.
I have this issue which I do not have a clue how to resolve.
I have no sound coming from JAWS 13 after unplugging from my Dell XPS
8300
Windows Home Premium's headphone jack.
When I check for other sound, yes, the media player plays music, etc.
But
JAWS is absolutley silent until I again plug into the headphone jack.
I have rebooted my machine, with the same issue.
When plugging back into the headphone jack, JAWS speaks up saying the
regular, "You have plugged a device into the audio jack." And when I
unplug the headphones, the tool tip says the opposite, but JAWS is
silent for that, or any other screen reading function until plugging
back into the audio headphone jack.

I hope someone may help with a possible solution.

I have not made any changes in my JAWS settings, nor in my computer's
sound settings.
One thing I looked at was that under Utilities in JAWS, under Sound
Card it says I am using Windows default sound card.

Thanks for any suggestions.
Richard

and not be tethered by the headphones.

We then even tried this. We launched Microsoft Narrator. And guess what?
The
behavior is the same. It only speaks with the headphone jack engaged.
So from this, the FS conclusion or hypothesis was that perhaps
something weird has happened to my sound card, as it relates to the
performance of the text to speech engine.

I do not have any particular technical skill to tackle this, as far
as what to try next.

I don't expect my tech support session with Dell, will be completely
easy.
But I guess that is what is needed at this point. And I will have to
do it another time. Lots to do, already a bit late from this
unanticipated tech glitch.

Thanks very much for any and all thoughts and suggestions.

Richard

Sure. You've got JAWS exclusively pointing to that headphone jack as
its only allowed device. When you disconnect, you lose JAWS.

First, while the headphone jack is connected (so you can hear):
Go to the JAWS application with Insert+J Utilities menu Sound Card
Submenu Arrow through the list (usually at least two) Select Windows
default instead of your headphones


that should fix it.

Yes, I am in a bit of an emergency here.
I have this issue which I do not have a clue how to resolve.
I have no sound coming from JAWS 13 after unplugging from my Dell XPS
8300
Windows Home Premium's headphone jack.
When I check for other sound, yes, the media player plays music, etc.
But
JAWS is absolutley silent until I again plug into the headphone jack.
I have rebooted my machine, with the same issue.
When plugging back into the headphone jack, JAWS speaks up saying the
regular, "You have plugged a device into the audio jack." And when I
unplug the headphones, the tool tip says the opposite, but JAWS is
silent for that, or any other screen reading function until plugging
back into the audio headphone jack.

I hope someone may help with a possible solution.

I have not made any changes in my JAWS settings, nor in my computer's
sound settings.
One thing I looked at was that under Utilities in JAWS, under Sound
Card it says I am using Windows default sound card.

Thanks for any suggestions.
Richard

Re: [Bulk] How to simulate Shift+left mouse click?

Gerardo Corripio <gera1027@...>
 

OK. How would these keystrokes translate using laptop keyboard layout on a
laptop?

Asunto: RE: [Bulk] How to simulate Shift+left mouse click?

Gerardo,

JAWS simulates the left mouse click with the slash key on the numpad. So as
Dave suggests, you may be able to achieve the result you want by pressing
this key along with the shift key.

However, I just went into JAWS key identifier mode and tried this key
combination. JAWS says it enables "selecting items contiguously." So if you
try it, you'll need to listen to what JAWS verbalizes.

If shift+numpaid slash doesn't work as you need, try one of the following
long shots:

1. First press JAWS key+3 on the number row above the letters. This is the
pass-through key that tells JAWS to treat the next keystroke not as a JAWS
function, but as whatever function that keystroke has in the application.
Then press shift+numpad slash and see what happens.

2. As an even more farfetched option, try shift+JAWS key+numpaid slash. I
doubt it will work, but I don't think it could do any harm.

HI guys: In TwInbox, Twitter client that integrates with Office Outlook's
Email, according to the online help, the Shift key plus the left mouse click
on the mouse pad opens up whatever link is on a tweet. What's Jaws's way to
simulate this function, so I can take the advantage of this keystroke while
the TwInbox folks work on a TwInbox update that implements a keystroke for
opening a link on a tweet?

That also has never been a problem. I would not have put up with that one

It may be that your Dell has a video card that's just not happy with
JAWS,
or that you have another mirror driver (like Dameware) that's
interfering.
You might want to check for that. I do not let anyone work on my laptop
remotely if their process requires installing a mirror driver.

Re: Another odd problem

Dave...
 

Ted,

I've also seen some quirks with JAWS 13.

1. Often when closing out an html E-Mail for the first time in a given day,
it will "take a breath" for about 15 seconds before I get back to JAWS
speaking.


If I delete rows or columns from Excel 2007 it takes quite a while for JAWS
to come back speaking.

Many web pages do not come up speaking, having me stuck in the address bar
area. Requires that I press Ctrl+F6 to get back on to the page. Sometimes I
even have to use the JAWS cursor and left click to get back to the page.

These things never happened with JAWS 11/12.

You may be on to something. This machine exhibits quirks I've never

a strange problem when doing heavy Internet work. It just gets slower
and slower, until I'm forced to either reload 10 (sometimes that doesn't
help) or reboot. Also, when sending a spreadsheet from Outlook 07, the

Sandy,

There are likely many more (like me) who also have a Dell computer and do
not have the problem. In fact I've had two different Dell laptops with two
different docking ports and have not had the problem.

Rik,

Then your headphones are being considered the default. You may need to
look
at your audio devices in the Control Panel to see What sound devices are
there, in addition to the headset. Then make sure that all are enabled.
Sounds like JAWS is not aware of any sound card aside from the headset,
and
it needs to be told that there is an internal sound chip that it can use.

Thanks, Dave.
I'm afraid I have to report it was no dice with that solution.
Under my Sound Card options in the JAWS Utilities, there is no listing for
Headphones.
The Windows Sound Default is checked already.
Other ideas?

As it happens, I just got finished with an extended session with Freedom
Scientific tech support.
The result was that no one could figure it out.
They used a Tandem JAWS session with me. The tech conferred with several
others while with me.
They tried several things, exploring and changing many of the settings in
my
pc's sound settings, to no avail.

We even closed JAWS 13 and launched version 12, to find exactly the
similar
behavior.
We used other voice profiles, SAPI and realspeak. Same thing.
There is sound from JAWS only when the headphone jack is plugged in. Other
sound devices work fine from speakers connected to the audio jack on back
of
my pc.

Finally I have just plugged my speakers into the headphone jack. They are
very little speakers, not big ones. but at least I can use JAWS and not be
tethered by the headphones.

We then even tried this. We launched Microsoft Narrator. And guess what?
The
behavior is the same. It only speaks with the headphone jack engaged. So
from this, the FS conclusion or hypothesis was that perhaps something
weird
has happened to my sound card, as it relates to the performance of the
text
to speech engine.

I do not have any particular technical skill to tackle this, as far as
what
to try next.

I don't expect my tech support session with Dell, will be completely easy.
But I guess that is what is needed at this point. And I will have to do it
another time. Lots to do, already a bit late from this unanticipated tech
glitch.

Thanks very much for any and all thoughts and suggestions.

Sure. You've got JAWS exclusively pointing to that headphone jack as its
only allowed device. When you disconnect, you lose JAWS.

First, while the headphone jack is connected (so you can hear):
Go to the JAWS application with Insert+J
Utilities menu
Sound Card Submenu
Arrow through the list (usually at least two)
Select Windows default instead of your headphones


that should fix it.

Yes, I am in a bit of an emergency here.
I have this issue which I do not have a clue how to resolve.
I have no sound coming from JAWS 13 after unplugging from my Dell XPS 8300
Windows Home Premium's headphone jack.
When I check for other sound, yes, the media player plays music, etc. But
JAWS is absolutley silent until I again plug into the headphone jack.
I have rebooted my machine, with the same issue.
When plugging back into the headphone jack, JAWS speaks up saying the
regular, "You have plugged a device into the audio jack." And when I
unplug
the headphones, the tool tip says the opposite, but JAWS is silent for
that,
or any other screen reading function until plugging back into the audio
headphone jack.

I hope someone may help with a possible solution.

I have not made any changes in my JAWS settings, nor in my computer's
sound
settings.
One thing I looked at was that under Utilities in JAWS, under Sound Card
it
says I am using Windows default sound card.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: Another odd problem

Dave...
 

Sandy,

That also has never been a problem. I would not have put up with that one
very long and my IT person would have been brought to task for not fixing
it.

It may be that your Dell has a video card that's just not happy with JAWS,
or that you have another mirror driver (like Dameware) that's interfering.
You might want to check for that. I do not let anyone work on my laptop
remotely if their process requires installing a mirror driver.

I have had another problem with my Dell since I first got it. There is no
way to keep the FS mirror display driver enabled from session to session. I
have worked with JFW tech support as well as dell and the only solution
anyone has come up with is before I shut down,, I go into the device manager
and enable the seetting and when I reboot, it is fine untill I shut down
without remembering to reset it. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

Re: Another odd problem

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

You may be on to something. This machine exhibits quirks I've never
seen anywhere else. Alt say all has never worked, and JAWS 13 exhibits
a strange problem when doing heavy Internet work. It just gets slower
and slower, until I'm forced to either reload 10 (sometimes that doesn't
help) or reboot. Also, when sending a spreadsheet from Outlook 07, the
to field appears to be empty--I can't see what I just typed.
