Speech on demand only makes sense if you use a braille display (at least as far as I am concerned).

Yes, Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by S toggles between speech on demand and full speech.

If you want the old behaviour back where this keystroke toggles between Speech and Mute you have to first toggle from full speech to speech on demand.

Now press Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by Shift+S and Jaws will say “Speech offset to Speech Mute”.

If you now press Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by S it will toggle between full speech and mute.

In order to go back to Speech on Demand you have to Mute Speech, then again press Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by Shift+S.

Jaws will say “Speech offset to speech on demand”.

If you try the Jaws Key+Spacebar with Shift+S when you are in full speech mode Jaws will say “not available in full speech mode”.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi,

Using W10 latest Home 64 bit and Jaws 2018.1802.78

 

After downloading and installing Jaws  a couple of days ago without a problem, I have now encounted one.

Well, maybe I am doing something incorrectly.

 

Trying out the new feature, Speech on Demand by pressing Jaws, spacebar s  gives a very different result from that as demonstrated in the December FS Podcast. When Jonathan used the above key combination his system said either “Speech on Demand” or “Full Speech”. My system says “Speech on” or “Speech off” and that is all.

 

With the speech off none of the reading keys like insert up arrow says anything.

 

As this feature was not tried prior to the recent update, it is not known whether it has ever worked.

 

Could someone try this featureand see what results are   obtained?

 

Thanks

Tom

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Thanks for your reply Sieghard.

 

Yes, I do definitely have the Jaws version  of a few days ago loaded. i.e. 2018.1802.78.

 

There is no braille device connected  so am wondering if this is making the difference. I wished to explore the feature to see how it worked but maybe this is not possible with no braille device connected.

 

I’ll study your remarks below to see what I can learn.

 

Thanks

Tom

Hi
Tom,

 

Are you sure you are running the latest Jaws 2018 update? Check in Jaws Settings > About and make sure you haven’t accidently loaded Jaws q18.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes, I am using the recommended key strokes, Jaws key spacebar then s  with no sign of Speech on Demand.  Just the results as I mentioned below.  i.e. either speech on or off.

Hi Tom,

 

When pressing the Jaws key & spacebar, then, S, you'll hear, Speech on Demand.

 

Press, Jaws key & spacebar, then, S, again, & you'll hear Full speech.

 

As a total rookie to this I'm assuming the keystroke, Jaws key, & spacebar, then, S, is a toggle between the 2 options.

I took a look last night and it seems to be much better. Haven't tried the app.

Re: Wal-Mart on the computer or the app

I did a lot of purchasing on their site a couple of years ago. The site was underpowered and painful to navigate because of it. I sometimes had to give up and try again at a less active time. It is probable that the browser and Jaws may have contributed to some of my problems.

I took a look last night and it seems to be much better. Haven't tried the app.

I’ll always give Ron Santo big time kudos for being one of the best third base players of his time. Plus, if you listened to when he reminisced about playing back in the day; playing third base and catching high speed line drive bullets; all while in the middle of a low blood sugar moment! Now that’s Baseball in spades and talk about tough!

I say the best I have ever heard was the Pat Hughes and Ron Santo team.  Poor Ronnie was so gullible at times and Pat knew just how to get him going or to settle him down if he got too worked up.

Well, being a Cubs fan, I’m partial to Pat Hughes.  But the other announcers mentioned are all very good.  Vin Skully, in my opinion, was the best of all-time.

Well, I have to admit, John Miller is excellent.

I'm not sure he is better than Rick Rizzswith the Mariners, but I might say they are equal and now the best in baseball since Vin Scully retired.

Yes, it is the same announcers as your home radio, or you can choose to listen to the other teams announcers.

Go Mariners!

Re: configuring Outlook 2016 with an Outlook.com account

Michal Nowicki
 

Probably not, because the issue is one of focus and navigation, not
labeling. Thus, even if Convenient OCR detects and accurately recognizes the
contents of the inaccessible dialogue box, that still won't solve the
problem of focusing JAWS on the controls. Has anyone experimented with the
touch cursor to see if that would do the trick. In several modern apps, I
was able to get JAWS to detect controls with the touch cursor that neither
the PC cursor nor the JAWS cursor recognized.

Subject: configuring Outlook 2016 with an Outlook.com account

for anyone interested, the solution to the subject is there is a window
that pops up (that appears in Windows, not Outlook) that asks for your
account address and password that is not detected or accessible with either
JAWS, NVDA or Narrator.

after starting Outlook, the configuration wizard comes up to setup the
default profile to establish a connection and retrieve your email.
activate the yes buttons for the first two dialog and type in your name,
account address, password, and again to confirm the password is correct, and
finally activate the next button. once the mysterious window asking for your
address, password and activating the next/OK button is accessed and
completed, Outlook 2016 will connect with the account.

as far as I can tell this frustrating experience occurs if Outlook 2016 is
operated in Windows 10. I'm not sure if this also occurs in Windows 7
(probably not).

so, if you have an Outlook.com account that you'd like to use with Outlook
2016 (and possibly 2013) you will need sighted assistance. grrr.
