Subject: P.S. RE: Question about caps lock

As a P.S. to this question, I now see that, caps lock does not even work as a true caps lock.  I do have JAWS to use caps lock as a modifier key.  Does this mean that I lose the functionality of caps lock altogether?  If that is the case, that makes my login screen issue below even stranger  It also seems odd that JAWS cannot retain the function of caps lock while also letting it be modifier key; Window Eyes allowed this. Not trying to be critical, but am really confused.  Maybe it’s a good thing if you cannot accidentally turn on caps lock.

Robin,

 

Are you using the desktop or laptop keyboard layout? If you are using the laptop layout, you must press the caps lock twice quickly to toggle it on and off, because the caps lock key is used as the JAWS modifier key.

Best,

moderated Excel, Jaws 2018 reading value in different cell

kevin meyers
 

Hello, I have a spread sheet setup with many columns. Then down 300 rows is a total row. For some reason when I’m on the total row which has a formula for all values in the column, Jaws is reading the value in the second row of the same column before it reads the actual value in the cell. Is there a setting in Jaws causing this or is something in Excel I need to change?

Net bat,
You and I are both using desktop layout and pressing the alt key activates caps lock. Another person mentioned pressing caps lock twice, which mustbe be the method in laptop layout, as that does nothing on my configuration. Glad to have clarification on this. I must have had caps lock on during the login problem earlier and did not know to press alt caps lock to release it. I'll try this next time I'm at a login screen, just to be sure it works there.

i don't know which configuration will effect the caps lock key.
i am useing the desktop layout but am useing the capslock for the jaws key.
i have to press alt and capslock keys to turn capslock on and off. and the status is spoken when i do this.
another configuration you have to press the capslock twice fast before the status will change and spoken.
the first press is for the jaws key. the second press turns capslock, on or off.

Hi,
I'm using an HP pavillion notebook.
Runing Windthe 10, was upgraded from 7.
2 questions:
1. During the migration, I never had speech, and I lost everything. What can I do?
2. Using NVDA 2018.1.1, the status of my capslock key isn't spoken, and I'm using laptop layout.

Thanks,

No, you should not lose the functionality of the caps lock. You just have to press it twice quickly to turn it on or off. If you press it only once, or if there is a delay between the first and second press, nothing will happen. Does that make sense?

Hi Sieghard & Richard,

Here's yet another way using Keyboard Manager:
1. Open Keyboard Manager without any applications / programs open to make sure
you land on, Default, when you open Keyboard Manager.  Do this by pressing,
Jaws key + F2, press the letter, K, until you have Keyboard Manager
highlighted, & press enter.  If you don't have, Default, highlighted when
opening the keyboard manager press the letter, D, until you do.

2. Find the following to assign keystrokes to them:
DecreaseSystemVolume,  None

DecreaseVoiceVolume,  None

IncreaseSystemVolume,  None

IncreaseVoiceVolume,  None
*Note:   None, means that there is not a keystroke assigned to these functions
/ tasks.

3. On each of these functions / tasks press, Control + A, to open an edit field
to insert the keystroke you would like to use for this particular function /
task.  *Note:  Make sure not to press any other keys other than the keystroke
you want!
4. After entering your desired keystroke tab one time, and there's a checkbox
for assigning this keystroke to desktop keys only, usually people will uncheck
this.

5. Tab to, Okay, Press ENTER, and choose OK in the confirmation dialog which
appears.

6.  You'll be returned to the list view of scripts.  Use the same steps with
the other functions / tasks listed above.

7. Close Keyboard Manager with, Alt + F4.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Richard,



I got one better than your way to create a shortcut.

All you have to do both in Windows 7 or Windows 10 is bring up either the run
command with Windows Key+R or simply the search box with the Windows key.

Now type sndvol and press enter and bingo, you are on the volume control.

I have read you can add a -f flag, e.g. sndvol -f to bring u p the master
volume directly but I found that even just sndvol will do this.

Here is the Jaws speech history as to what this sounds like, first without and
then with the -f switch, I am using just the Windows key/Cortana search box and
not the run command, note that the Jaws speech history gives you the result
after you type every letter of “sndvol”, if you type it fast you never hear
most of that, but I left it in just to show it:



Cortana

S, Search box edit

Sn, Snipping Tool, Desktop app

snd, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndv, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvo, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvol, Run command – this is where I pressed enter

Volume Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog

Speakers

Speakers

up down slider

83 – I am now pressing the down arrow several times and again the up arrow

82 percent

81 percent

80 percent

81 percent

82 percent

83 percent



Now here is what it sounds like with the -f switch added after SndVol, I left
out all the suggestions which come up after each letter and go straight to the
final one:

Cortana

sndvol -f, Run command

dialog

up down slider

83

82 percent

81 percent



Only difference seems to be that adding the -f switch doesn’t verbalize Volume
Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog, Speakers, Speakers and
instead it says right away the volume percentage.

You could of course create a shortcut with “sndvol” or “sndvol -f” but I
personally find pressing the Windows key and typing sndvol is just about as
fast as pressing Control+Alt+V or whatever shortcut you would assign the
shortcut..

I guess another thing you can do is create the volume shortcut and put it on
the taskbar, if you had it at the very left then pressing Windows Key+1 would
do the trick as well.

I just tried it using SndVol -f for the shortcut which I called “Volume”, then

moderated P.S. RE: Question about caps lock

Van Lant, Robin
 

As a P.S. to this question, I now see that, caps lock does not even work as a true caps lock.  I do have JAWS to use caps lock as a modifier key.  Does this mean that I lose the functionality of caps lock altogether?  If that is the case, that makes my login screen issue below even stranger.  It also seems odd that JAWS cannot retain the function of caps lock while also letting it be modifier key; Window Eyes allowed this. Not trying to be critical, but am really confused.  Maybe it’s a good thing if you cannot accidentally turn on caps lock.

Are you using the desktop or laptop keyboard layout? If you are using the laptop layout, you must press the caps lock twice quickly to toggle it on and off, because the caps lock key is used as the JAWS modifier key.

I have noticed with both of my installations of JAWS 2018 (one on Windows 7 and one on Win 10) that JAWS does not announce the status of Caps lock on and off as I press the button.  This became particularly problematic earlier today when I was at the Window 7 login screen after having left my computer for a while and my first entry of my password got an error.  I figured caps lock was on, so press the button to remove caps lock, but my password was still incorrect.  I have no idea if caps lock was on or off and ended up locking myself out after several failed attempts of pressing caps lock.  Because I did not know how to figure out if caps lock was on and was afraid the tech support guy was going to have me typing a new password in, I did a hard shutdown hoping to clear it.  As it turned out, I still had Window Eyes set to load at start up, so I was able to get unlocked and logged back in with the ability to check caps lock status.

 

Why does JAWS not tell the Caps lock status and is there a way to get it to do this?  Window Eyes does it fine.  By extension, I’ve even surprised in say, MS Word, that JAWS does not correctly identify what is happening with commands such as Control B, Control S, etc.  With Window Eyes, it says “Bold on” and “Bold off” or “saving document”.  I really am trying to make the switch to JAWS, but things like this are making me anxious.

if you are modifying an existing keystroke the command is control h
control a will create a new keystroke and you will end up with 2 keystrokes for the increase and decrease volume. the original and the new keystroke you just created.

Hi Sieghard & Richard,

Here's yet another way using Keyboard Manager:
1. Open Keyboard Manager without any applications / programs open to make sure you land on, Default, when you open Keyboard Manager. Do this by pressing, Jaws key + F2, press the letter, K, until you have Keyboard Manager highlighted, & press enter. If you don't have, Default, highlighted when opening the keyboard manager press the letter, D, until you do.

2. Find the following to assign keystrokes to them:
DecreaseSystemVolume, None

DecreaseVoiceVolume, None

IncreaseSystemVolume, None

IncreaseVoiceVolume, None
*Note: None, means that there is not a keystroke assigned to these functions / tasks.

3. On each of these functions / tasks press, Control + A, to open an edit field to insert the keystroke you would like to use for this particular function / task. *Note: Make sure not to press any other keys other than the keystroke you want!
4. After entering your desired keystroke tab one time, and there's a checkbox for assigning this keystroke to desktop keys only, usually people will uncheck this.

5. Tab to, Okay, Press ENTER, and choose OK in the confirmation dialog which appears.

6. You'll be returned to the list view of scripts. Use the same steps with the other functions / tasks listed above.

7. Close Keyboard Manager with, Alt + F4.

Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Hi Richard,



I got one better than your way to create a shortcut.

All you have to do both in Windows 7 or Windows 10 is bring up either the run command with Windows Key+R or simply the search box with the Windows key.

Now type sndvol and press enter and bingo, you are on the volume control.

I have read you can add a -f flag, e.g. sndvol -f to bring u p the master volume directly but I found that even just sndvol will do this.

Here is the Jaws speech history as to what this sounds like, first without and then with the -f switch, I am using just the Windows key/Cortana search box and not the run command, note that the Jaws speech history gives you the result after you type every letter of “sndvol”, if you type it fast you never hear most of that, but I left it in just to show it:



Cortana

S, Search box edit

Sn, Snipping Tool, Desktop app

snd, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndv, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvo, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvol, Run command – this is where I pressed enter

Volume Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog

Speakers

Speakers

up down slider

83 – I am now pressing the down arrow several times and again the up arrow

82 percent

81 percent

80 percent

81 percent

82 percent

83 percent



Now here is what it sounds like with the -f switch added after SndVol, I left out all the suggestions which come up after each letter and go straight to the final one:

Cortana

sndvol -f, Run command

dialog

up down slider

83

82 percent

81 percent



Only difference seems to be that adding the -f switch doesn’t verbalize Volume Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog, Speakers, Speakers and instead it says right away the volume percentage.

You could of course create a shortcut with “sndvol” or “sndvol -f” but I personally find pressing the Windows key and typing sndvol is just about as fast as pressing Control+Alt+V or whatever shortcut you would assign the shortcut..

I guess another thing you can do is create the volume shortcut and put it on the taskbar, if you had it at the very left then pressing Windows Key+1 would do the trick as well.

I just tried it using SndVol -f for the shortcut which I called “Volume”, then I pinned it to the taskbar and dragged it to the first position and when I pressed Windows+1 Jaws instantly says “Dialogue, up down slider, 81”.



Regards,

Sieghard

moderated Re: Jaws and the MLB TV/Gameday Audio controls

Michal Nowicki
 

Dennis and All,

 

I have two additional tips for accessing MLB TV with JAWS. First, the site is no longer optimized for Internet Explorer. When I use IE I get the same sluggish performance Dennis gets, but when I use Chrome, everything loads much faster. MLB customer service confirmed that IE is no longer supported.

 

Second, I have found it much easier to interact with media players generally by turning off the virtual cursor by pressing JAWS key plus z (insert z in my case and by default). When the virtual cursor is off, you can tab through the page elements, and once you land inside the media player, the spacebar will toggle play/pause, the up and down arrow keys will adjust the volume, and the left and right arrows will rewind and fast forward, respectively. Please let us know if turning off the virtual cursor has this effect in the MLB TV media player.

 

Best,

 

Michal

I'm not sure what your question is.  I figure the first unlabeled 0 button is volume up, the unlabeled 1 button is volume down, and the next unlabeled button I know to be the pause button because it works as such by pressing space bar or enter.  However, the volume buttons, if that is what they are, don't seem to do anything.  I sent an email to the accessibility site address someone sent.  I suggest all blind persons do the same, expressing concern and disappointment at the mess they've made of the site this year.

I wrote a script that toggles speech off and on with a press of the F12 key, so I don’t have to listen to that.  Disabling screen updates doesn’t seem to work consistently.
 
Thanks,
Dennis

if you are listening to a live game the buttons don't do anything. if you are listening to an archived game the 0 button is pause and play, the 1 button is rewind and the 2 button is forward. in settings i have the two choices that are there turned off so there isn't a bunch of stats on the screen. hope this helps.

The controls are Unlabled0 button, Unlabeled1 button, Unlabeled0 button, etc.
And it updates about every 15 seconds.
When I set place markers, they don’t work the next time I’m on the site.
Whenever I’m on the MLB.com site itself, not the Gameday audio site, each keystroke takes around 15 seconds to execute, such as up arrow, down arrow, Tab, etc.
The Gameday audio page worked fine until they combined it with the MLB TV page
I’m using the latest JAWS and IE11 with Windows 10.
Thanks,

As I have said before, once I enter on the game I want, by pressing the b for buttons, I get to the unlabeled volume and pause buttons, where the pause button seem to work.  By doing this, the page doesn't seem to keep on refreshing, but if it does, you can always move away from the page so as not to hear it refreshing any longer.

moderated Activating sound in Windows Safe Mode

Dave Durber
 

Hello everyone:

A few weeks ago there was a discussion on the list, about activating sound in Safe Mode.

I posted that I would be willing to share a .reg file which I obtained from another member on this list, that would allow this to happen and I also said I would provide instructions.

Unfortunately, due to some health problems and due to a problem with my email client, I lost the entire contents of my inbox, including those list members who sent me emails requesting the .reg file and the instructions.

If you are still interested in receiving the .reg file and instructions on how to activate soundin Safe Mode, please email me at:

d.durber@gmail.com

including your email address in the body of the message, and I will reply to the messages as quickly as possible.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber
