Yes, this is a JAWS  issue, sometimes it works and others not so much.

Inputting email addresses in Outlook works correctly with narrator.  I am able to arrow down and select the email address I want.  It does not work correctly with NVDA or Jaws.

 

Again, any thoughts on getting this to work correctly with Jaws would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

When I start a new email in Outlook, it is not reading the addresses when I start typing.  For example, I am in the to field and type the letter t, I am told that there are five email addresses that start with t in my list, but when I arrow down it is no longer speaking the addresses.

 

I am using office 365 with Jaws 2019.

 

It use to read the addresses and let me arrow and select from a list.  Now it appears like there is a list that is not being read.

 

I will play around to see if NVDA or Narrator work correctly.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi, I use an Epson Perfection 550 and on occasion I hve scanned using my Brother 4 in 1 printer /scanner. Both work fine but Epson a bit faster. Canon also makes some good units although , my experience, not as reliable or clear which then affects accuracy.
Open Book is good however there are now competing products which are as competitive in price and quality. Open Book has not been updated in years.
Whatever you choose just don't go for price alone.

Hello All,

I just learned today that, starting with version 2018, Jaws supports some limited OCR scanning. The Jaws tech support would not recommend a scanner. The only thing they said is that it had to be TWAIN compatible.

I have started researching scanners and would like the list's opinions. Especially from those using the Jaws OCR feature. Right now I just want to OCR my mail. Eventually, I plan to purchase OpenBook. In the mean time, I can't decide if I should go with one of the lower end Brother's mobile scanners or if I should purchase a multi function printer/scanner/fax models.

Looking on Amazon, there a a lot of scanners to choose from. I'd like to keep the cost under $250 unless this isn't reasonable.

All opinions are welcome.

Thanks Mike

Hi,

  Yes, I get this as well from time to time.  If I ALT Tab to another program and then come back the e-mails show.  The mails are there but for unknown reason JAWS says 0.  I have tried changing some settings but never hit on a perfect solution.

Hello, I’m using Windows10, Outlook2016 and Jaws2018. Starting last week I encountered a problem when I switch from the inbox to a different folder. I go to another folder, read a few of the emails and then return to the inbox. When I get back to the inbox it says there are zero emails. I arrow up and down and nothing shows. I page up and down and nothing shows up. I exit Outlook and then try to go back in. When I try to activate Outllok from the desktop or from Cortona, it will not load. I can activate 3 or 4 other apps from the desk and sometimes Outlook will load. Most of the time I have to reboot. My main concern right now is why don’t the emails appear in the inbox after I switch in and out of the inbox? They will only show up after I go out and then back into Outlook. Cheers, Kevin

That is an odd issue I have not seen.  Try using Control Shift I to return to the inbox and see if you get the same result.

Hi
If you’re going to be scanning using a desktop PC, Epson scanners are always a good option. If you’re using a laptop and need portability, the Cannon Lide 220 only needs power from the USB port, will fit in your laptop bag and can be purchased from Amazon probably for under $80 or $100 tops. It’s slow and not designed for real heavy-duty scanning over the long haul but it works pretty well. I avoid all-in-one printer/scanner/fax devices like the plague.

I've owned three all-in-one units with screens, and the screen hasn't effected scanning functionality on any of them.  Right now I do most of my scanning with a giant Epson workforce all-in-one that has a 11x17 scanner.  It works fine with Jaws, as long as you choose the right scanner for the ocr, there are choices that won't work at all.

Well, at this time openbook hasen't been updated in a long time, and in my opinion hp is a great twain scanner, never had a problem out of most of the hp scanners I have used. Not saying open book is not a good option but version 9 has been the main meat and potatos for several years.

I think you would just need to make sure that which ever one you got did not have to be run by some other software. If it can be run purely as a Twain scanner, then it should work fine.
I have an old Canon LIDE 110, I think is the model number and it works fine. It is probably a little slow, but was under $100 when I bought it probably 7 years ago.
HTH,

Re: Outlook not reading Addresses

 

Hi,

The general cause is screen readers not being aware of UIA implementations in recent outlook releases. I’m thinking something might be going on with JAWS 2019’s UIA support in Outlook, but we may need to talk to Vispero about it (talk to me privately about NVDA, as there is a research project to fix this and related bugs in one go).

Cheers,

Re: putting a search query into the start menu search box

 

Bill,

           They do mean Right Arrow, and I'd just give this a try with a few of the items returned.  Once you've right arrowed, if there is more than one option you can down arrow/up arrow to go through them.  To get back to the list of items returned by the search you can just hit left arrow regardless of where you are in the list of options for the single item you're playing with.

           What Version of Windows 10?  I have Version 1809, Build 17763.194, and when I do this the right arrow for something noted as settings throws focus to the open option for those settings.  What the right arrow does is move you out of the "search results" list/column and in to a list of things you can do with the current item you have focus on in the search results list.  What that is, of course, varies depending on the type of the search result item itself.
