JAWS not speaking on Win 10 start-up screen

Edward Green
 

Hi all,

I'm running the JAWS 2019 beta on an HP Spectre laptop using the April update of Windows 10.

When my PC starts up, a screen comes up showing different wallpapers. To get to the username and password field, I have to press escape.

JAWS won't speak on that wallpaper screen regardless of how long I leave it there, but does when I press escape and the log on screen shows. I have JAWS set to speak at the log on screen.

Does anyone know how to get JAWS to speak on that first start-up screen, or even better, turn off that screen? I had thought that this screen was the lock screen, and followed instructions online to create a registry key in the hopes of disabling it. I also went into personalisation settings and turned off the lock screen at log on, but still no joy.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks,

Ed

All right.

Again I appreciate all the help that you gave me on this.

Sometimes it doesn’t pay to just assume that following the default options is the best thing.

I will remember this tip.

Thanks again.

Hi:

 

That’s great!  I changed that option and JFW loaded it right up, faster than before.

 

How did you find out about that option?

 

Thanks!

Thanks, I’ll give that a look.

 

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the middle of processing—maybe that’s actually JFW freezing.  Maybe Adobe is just fine with it.

 

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

 

Just in case anyone wants to look at it, it’s an eBook on using FreeDOS.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.

If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general (iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has. It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward, linear text.

Hi listers:

 

Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s.  For some reason, whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive.  Is this becoming a problem?  If so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?

 

Thanks!

I’ve found that the PDF viewer included in Google Chrome works well with screen readers.

 

If the document is a scanned image, then I run ABBYY FineReader on it.

Hi Cristóbal & Steve,

 

What if you put the phrase,

Into the Jaws dictionary Add / Actual word field and put a space into the Replacement word field.  This would mute Jaws of saying that text.

Hi Cristóbal,

 

One thought is maybe your screen echo has changed.  While in Outlook press, Jaws key + S, to tobble through settings.  They are Highlighted, All, & None.  It sounds like it might be set on, All, so switch it to, Highlighted, and see if that helps.

Hello list,

I’ve been having this issue for a while now. I can’t recall when it started, but regardless, it happens every single time  I switch folders in Outlook 2016. Be it a main inbox or subfolder, etc.

I get the below message every time I switch folders.

List box Connectivity to your server. Connected

I don’t need to be informed that I’m connected all the time. Any ideas on how to stop this?

I’ve got 6 email accounts configured with a mixture of imap and exchange. This will occur regardless if I switch to an imap folder.

Anyway, I’m on Jaws 2018 and recently started to play with the JFW 2019 beta. This exact same behavior is occurring in the beta so I know at this point it’s not just my JFW 2018 version. I’m sure it has to do with a setting I’m not aware of or have perhaps by accident enabled.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Thanks, I’ll give that a look.

 

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the middle of processing—maybe that’s actually JFW freezing.  Maybe Adobe is just fine with it.

 

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

 

Just in case anyone wants to look at it, it’s an eBook on using FreeDOS.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.

If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general (iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has. It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward, linear text.

Hi listers:

 

Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s.  For some reason, whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive.  Is this becoming a problem?  If so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?

 

Thanks!

It works better if you use the “Change reading options setting in the Edit menu, and choose “Raw print stream.

Apart from the fact that a large document say with 20 or 30 pages or even more takes a while to load I have no problems with ACrobat Readder being sluggish, once the document has loaded I can navigate it withut problems.

No, it won’t help, I’m on Highlighted and it still does it.

Hi Cristóbal,

 

One thought is maybe your screen echo has changed.  While in Outlook press, Jaws key + S, to tobble through settings.  They are Highlighted, All, & None.  It sounds like it might be set on, All, so switch it to, Highlighted, and see if that helps.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: Annoying Jaws announcement every time I switch Outlook folders

 

Hello list,

I’ve been having this issue for a while now. I can’t recall when it started, but regardless, it happens every single time  I switch folders in Outlook 2016. Be it a main inbox or subfolder, etc.

I get the below message every time I switch folders.

List box Connectivity to your server. Connected

I don’t need to be informed that I’m connected all the time. Any ideas on how to stop this?

I’ve got 6 email accounts configured with a mixture of imap and exchange. This will occur regardless if I switch to an imap folder.

Anyway, I’m on Jaws 2018 and recently started to play with the JFW 2019 beta. This exact same behavior is occurring in the beta so I know at this point it’s not just my JFW 2018 version. I’m sure it has to do with a setting I’m not aware of or have perhaps by accident enabled.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

No, it’s Outlook telling you that you are connected to the IMAP server.  JAWS is just relaying information.

Another option is to use the “recognize with JAWS feature, and bypass Adobe Acrobat DC altogether.
