My Jaws 2018 says “Speech On Demand” not Speech Mute.  It toggles from Speech On Demand, to Full Speech.

Hi, Tom. JAWS should not say Speech Off. It should say Speech Mute. If you press INSERT plus SPACE, S again, it should say Full Speech.

 

Try the following.

 

1. Open JAWS Settings Center.

2. In the search box, type the word speech.

3. Arrow down to Speech options, and press ENTER.

4. Open Speech Options with Right Arrow.

5. Arrow down to Less Speech Options

6. When you Arrow down to Less Speech Options, if it says Speech Mute, press Space once.

7. It will say Speech On Demand.

8. TAB to the OK box and press ENTER.

 

Now, when you press JAWS key plus SPACE, S, it should toggle between Full Speech and Speech On Demand.

Thanks to all those who offered suggestions regarding my speech on demand problem under Jaws .78.

 

In an attempt to fix the problem, the following steps have been done:

 

The Jaws repair function was run a couple of times including after downloading a new .exe file.

 

 

Unfortunately, although everything else in this version of Jaws seems to be working well, there has not been any improvement.

Pressing insert, spacebar then s gives just 2 options, speech on or speech off.

 

Pressing insert, spacebar shift s no longer seems to give any feedback at all.

 

There are some options under Settings Centre, Speech Options that seem to deal with the Speech on Demand feature but, being a recent convert to Jaws from WE,I don’t know what to change or leave alone.  So, I may just have to leave it all as is for a while.

Hi Bob,

 

When you get the prompt to run a repair, have you tried tabbing to, Repair, or to find radio buttons for a Repair option?  Also,

are you installing using the update feature in Jaws, or have you downloaded the executable, & running that?  Try downloading the executable, using the correct link for your system from below.

 

Below are the direct download links for the February Jaws update,
J2018.1802.78, + what's new in this release.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Would I use a New Voice Profile for This?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Dani. Yes, I think you are on to something. I would create a new profile, and name it something specific such as Eloquence, Proofreading. Then, it will be easy to switch profiles. You can even tie a particular profile to a specific app or program such as Microsoft Word 2016. That way, whenever you start Word, the proofreading profile will be invoked when Word starts.

Hi, Everyone.
More often than not nowadays, I need to proofread Braille copies
against the print originals. I was embossing the originals and reading
that copy with one hand while reading my work with the other.

I want to be able to listen to the original, with things like the
punctuation and font attributes--italics, for example,--announced,
while I read the hard copy of the Braille translation to check for
things that may need to be corrected.

I know that the JFW user can change what is announced in the sound
scheme, so I've been doing that.

But I've been changing things back so I don't have all that
unnecessary stuff being given to me when I don't want it e.g., reading
something for pleasure.

Would it be more efficient to create a new voice profile?

I've seen it in passing when I've browsed the Help file, but haven't
thought of how the voice profile can be applied. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Dani

Well, one thing Val could try is to temporarily turn off Eset NOD32, then start the computer and see if her computer runs faster at login. If it does, then it’s NOD32 that’s the culprit. If it doesn’t, then she needs to look in another direction.

Re: Speech on Demand

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Tom. When you say that JAWS is saying Speech Off, this leads me to believe that a version prior to version 2018 is active on your system. When your JAWS starts, navigate to About in the JAWS menu, and see which version is running. I suspect that actually JAWS 18 may be running instead of JAWS 2018. If 2018 were running, it would toggle between Full Speech and Speech Mute. Previous versions of JAWS toggled between Speech Off and Speech On.

Hi, Tom. JAWS should not say Speech Off. It should say Speech Mute. If you press INSERT plus SPACE, S again, it should say Full Speech.

 

Try the following.

 

1. Open JAWS Settings Center.

2. In the search box, type the word speech.

3. Arrow down to Speech options, and press ENTER.

4. Open Speech Options with Right Arrow.

5. Arrow down to Less Speech Options

6. When you Arrow down to Less Speech Options, if it says Speech Mute, press Space once.

7. It will say Speech On Demand.

8. TAB to the OK box and press ENTER.

Re: speech on demand

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Nino. I just get everything ready by copying the web address I will want to record from into the AddressBar. Then I start Total Recorder. I press CONTROL plus R to start recording. At this point, JAWS will still get into what I am doing. Then I start my Internet browser. Then I press INSERT plus SPACE, then S. This turns off speech. It will only do this if you have configured the Internet browser configuration file in JAWS to do this in advance.

 

Once JAWS is off, I use the Internet browser command to paste something into the AddressBar. For me, since I use Internet Explorer, the command is CONTROL plus L, followed by CONTROL plus V to paste the web address into the AddressBar. Then I press ENTER, and the web page comes up that I want to record.

 

Once the recording is through, I start playing the file in Total Recorder until I get to the point where I hear myself turning off JAWS. Then I use the Delete Before Current Position to remove that part of the recording which contained JAWS.

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.

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”.

Subject: speech on demand

 

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

Malwarebytes offers more threat protection than either MSE or WD, which don't cover you from ransomware and crypto schemes. Oh yes, that's another one you should definitely look into--CryptoProtect, also free.

Hello fellow listerrs,

I know we’ve dealt with this subject in the past, but can someone tell me a fairly decent anti-malware software. 

Thx,

Tab until you land in to a edit box. Type in your teacher’s name, and make sure to check the box that says Skype only. Look for her name in a drop down edit box, and if and when you find her name, press enter. If you know that it is your teacher, then add her to your contact list. If you have the scripts installed, then you can press insert plus H for a list of keyboard commands.

Best:

James

Hi:

 

Do you know how to initiate  a contact

 

I am using Skype with my tutor and I don’t know how to call her.

 

Any ideas would be helpful.

 

Thanks

It might work some, but it is not as accessible as previously.  I like the split window aspect of the old Skype, and I don't know how to quit without signing out, which I found out how to do accidentally by going into my profile.

Hi,

The Windows 10 Skype app is very accessible.

When you enter on the app, you are right on your list of contacts. Enter on one, and you are put right into the message field to type a message. You just tab to call, video call, and so on. You can press CTRL+1 to get to your list of contacts wherever you are on the screen.

I’m using Windows 10 and the latest jaws update. Is the latest version of Skype accessible from the keyboard? Luckily it didn’t update, just loaded a trial version. I couldn’t find any accessibility settings or menus. The control-comma didn’t bring up options, but something about my not having a camera.
