Problem using rules in Outlook 2016

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     I’m trying to see what rules I’ve created in Outlook 2016. However, when I go to the “Manage rules and alerts” dialogue within the rules submenu, I get something like this message. “the operation failed because of a registry or installation problem.” JAWS also tells me to restart outlook and try again. I’ve done that many times/still can’t see my rules I’ve created. Funnily enough, I can’t move any messages to specific folders using the rules submenu either. I don’t want to have to reinstall outlook—that’s what the message also says if problem isn’t fixed. I don’t know the exact date this started happening, but I find it weird all of a sudden. As of last week, though everything was working fine/sure don’t want to do a system restore/mess with registry stuff. Any help?

Thank you,

Ashleigh Piccinino

Re: Your thoughts on using a SurfacePro with JAWS

Hi Jim,

I've run Surface Pros with Jaws for several years. The newer Surface Pro keyboard is much easier to use than were the older models. Starting with Surface Pro 4, the keyboard is much easier to type on. Of course, you can get a Bluetooth keyboard if you wish. I have a unit with 16 GB of RAM, and it works really well with Jaws running Windows 10. If you have additional questions, ask away.

Subject: Your thoughts on using a SurfacePro with JAWS

Howdy,

I’d like to know if anyone uses or has used a Microsoft SurfacePro as a tablet or laptop with JAWS. I understand it can run MS Office 365 and basically other programs with no issues. I don’t know if it would have the memory of a full-fledged laptop, but how would that go as a tablet or travel computer?
I’m just asking for opinions.
Thanks.

Not yet, but I will.

 

Currently, I’m dealing with a major problem with Outlook on the new Windows 10 computer.

 

Have been on the phone almost constantly with the Microsoft Accessibility Hotline, my internet service provider, and others.  The problem occurred after an internet outage here Thursday evening.

Hi, Tom. Try turning on Narrator, and see if you get the same delay through Narrator. If so, you might have one of the sound cards which go to sleep frequently, and need to be awoken by key presses.

Hello, everyone.

 

As some of you may remember, I’m continuing to set up a new Dell Windows 10 computer with Jaws.

 

The computer has an Intel I7 processor, 16 gigabytes of ram, a 12 gigabyte solid-state drive, and a 1 terabyte mechanical hard drive.

 

I mention this right from the start, because this computer should have plenty of horse power to work well with Jaws.

 

I have noticed that, when typing something, after I stop using the computer for 30 seconds or so, I do not get Jaws feedback until I press at least four or five keys.  In other words, there’s a considerable delay until Jaws starts speaking again.

 

I am thinking this is a Jaws issue, but am not totally sure.

 

I’m currently using Jaws 2018, and plan to upgrade to Jaws 2019 soon, although I’m a bit hesitant to do so right now because of other known problems with Jaws 2019 and MS Word.

 

Are there some settings I should look at to try to address this issue?

 

Thanks as always!

After installing Thunderbird you have to add a Email account rather it be Gmail, Comcast or what ever. The settings for the account are different for each. Port numbers and such must be set correctly or you will get crashes. So you need to find the proper settings for each Email account by going to their web site or Google it.

If I take my iPhone and take a picture of a page of text I have essentially a photo in JPeg format but it consists of a page of text which Jaws 2018 or Jaws 2019 can read/recognize.
Also, there used to be and maybe there still are sccanners who save in JPG format although I think most nowadays use PDF.

Re: Drag and drop

 

Angie,

            I have never seen a "drag and drop" mechanism to add multiple entries to contacts, though I won't swear that some e-mail client might not have that.

            It's far more conventional for the source to export the group contacts to a CSV file and for the recipient to use the import feature of contacts to bring those in.

The interesting thing is that something that might cause a problem for
one person might not for another.  I tried your test here with the
latest thunderbird under windows 10 and had no trouble at all.  The
first thing I'd suggest to the original poster is to make sure your
program is up to date.

Hello.

I use Thunderbird with JAWS. Could you please be more specific when
you say that Thunderbird crashes. Could you give us a precise list of
steps which causes the problem? When you say it crashes could you
explain exactly what is happening? In other words, does the program
literally close or does it stay open and just not accept commands?

There is one set of steps which I can describe which literally does
cause Thunderbird to crash, meaning that the program actually closes
and so needs to be restarted. This has to do with the Quick Filter
toolbar, which can be found in the View menu under Toolbars. I usually
don't keep this toolbar enabled all of the time but I periodically
enable it when I need to search for certain words contained within the
subject or sender's name. Here is what I can do to cause Thunderbird
to crash, at least on my system.


1. The shortcut key to enable the quick filter bar is to press
ctrl-shift-K.

2. Enter some keywords.

3. Press the escape key a few times. The first press of the escape key
should clear out your search term and the second press removes the
quick filter bar.


When performing these steps using NVDA the behavior is as expected,
with the quick filter bar disappearing. When performing these steps
using JAWS 2019 Thunderbird crashes and I need to restart the program.


I love the Thunderbird application. Its keyboard commands for commonly
used tasks are similar, sometimes identical, to programs such as
Outlook, Outlook Express, etc. On my system Outlook 2016, which does
work quite well with JAWS, exhibits serious performance issues.
Specifically, when I navigate through and open messages the
responsiveness is slower than I think it should be. This slow-down in
performance is what still keeps me using Thunderbird, as its
performance is quite snappy. However, this issue, along with several
others, doesn't make using Thunderbird with JAWS a very nice
experience. I plan to compile a list of issues and send them to FS in
the hopes that they can be addressed.

As some of you may remember, I’m continuing to set up a new Dell Windows 10 computer with Jaws.

 

The computer has an Intel I7 processor, 16 gigabytes of ram, a 12 gigabyte solid-state drive, and a 1 terabyte mechanical hard drive.

 

I mention this right from the start, because this computer should have plenty of horse power to work well with Jaws.

I’m currently using Jaws 2018, and plan to upgrade to Jaws 2019 soon, although I’m a bit hesitant to do so right now because of other known problems with Jaws 2019 and MS Word.

 

Are there some settings I should look at to try to address this issue?

If I take my iPhone and take a picture of a page of text I have essentially a photo in JPeg format but it consists of a page of text which Jaws 2018 or Jaws 2019 can read/recognize.
Also, there used to be and maybe there still are sccanners who save in JPG format although I think most nowadays use PDF.

I have had good experience with this. Following Don's suggestion, without opening the file press the applications key and arrow to "recognize with JAWS" or just type the letter J. For me, it worked like a charm!

Re: OCR and JPG files

 

This only applies to Jaws 2018 and Jaws 2019, in Jaws 18 and earlier OCR was only possible on PDF files and from inside Acrobat Reader.

OK, I do admit that I don't know if the feature to recognize almost any image file with Jaws OCR was added in one of the later Jaws 18 updates, but I don't think so.

You can do “JAWS+Spacebar then “o” and then either “e” or “w”. I t doesn’t really give you anything, but give it a shot. You can also try using the application key then the letter “j” which recognize any text if there is any. The first way you have to open the file, the second way, you just right click (the application key).

HTH.

Re: Thunderbird always crashing!Hi!

Steve Matzura
 

Thunderbird is not an email provider. It's an email client. Your email provider is Gmail.


So, when does it crash? After you perform a specific Thunderbird task or function? When it's retrieving messages? Tell us more about these crashes. Do they take you back to the Desktop, or do they display an error message? If the latter, plese provide that message.

Hi, Rick. The first thing you should try is:

 

After pressing ENTER, press JAWS key plus ESCAPE to refresh the screen. See if this brings the scan History into view.

Dear Listers:

 

I have just recently updated Windows 10, and have also updated Windows Defender, my antiviral program.  When I try to examine the scan history, JAWS will not work.  When I get to the Windows Defender Scan Center, I hit the enter key when I hear Viral Protection.  As soon as I do, JAWS says “Link, Scan History.”  When I hit the enter key, nothing seems to happen.  If any of you use Windows Defender, can you tell me what to do to resolve this?  By the way, I am using JAWS 2019.

Most time crashes are caused by the wrong settings for your Email provider. Who is your Email provider?
