Re: Jaws 2019 January update, was: Problem using Word 2016

I would love to see the addition of Batch Scan support for convenient OCR.

The Jaws 2019 January update was just released this morning, version 2019.1901.66, maybe see if it makes a difference in Word. The main new feature which was added is a new option in the Jaws menu to sample, add and remove Vocalizer voices, here is the direct download link for the universal 32 and 64 Bit installer and the what's new information:

 

Jaws 2019.1901.66 direct download link

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1901.66 (January 2019)

 

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the December 2018 update and the January 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page . You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

 

Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices

 

This new utility included in the latest releases of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion provides a solution to seamlessly sample and install or remove the Vocalizer

Expressive 2 voices used by all three products. This avoids the need to download anything from external pages and makes the entire process much easier across all products. And remember, once voices are set up for one product, there is no need to install them again for the other products.

 

From the JAWS main window, press ALT+O to open the Options menu, expand the Voices submenu, and then select Add/Remove Voices to open the Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices utility.

 

This dialog includes:

• Language specific list of currently available Vocalizer Expressive 2 Premium voices.

• Ability to select and Install as many voices as you would like right from the list.

• See what voices are already installed as you review the list.

• Hear a sample of the currently focused voice in the list before deciding if you want to select it to be installed. To play a sample, just press ALT+P while focused on the voice name in the list.

• Option to uninstall one or more voices.

• Option to uninstall all voices.

• Option to uninstall only the compact voices that had been previously installed.

 

Note: If you remove a voice that is currently in use, your JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText will continue to speak using that voice until you restart the software or reboot the computer. Once you restart, it will default to the next profile available.

If there are no more Vocalizer Expressive Voices available, JAWS and Fusion will default back to Eloquence.

 

In JAWS and Fusion, after installing a premium voice, a profile is created for each of those new individual voices which can be further customized using the Voice Adjustment dialog box. You can also easily switch between all the new voices by pressing CTRL+INSERT+S to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog box, pressing the first letter of the voice you want to use, and then pressing ENTER. If you prefer not to have a profile generated for each installed voice, open the Voice Adjustment dialog box and clear the "Enable Additional Voice Profiles for installed Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices" check box so that only the standard Vocalizer Expressive factory and user profiles are listed.

 

If you find that compact voice collections had previously been installed, there is also an option to remove all compact voices. This is especially beneficial for users of Fusion or ZoomText 2018 or later which installs dozens of the compact voices by default. If you do not need all of these voices and languages, this makes it easy to remove all compact voices at once.

 

Improved Kindle Support

 

We have made several improvements to performance when using JAWS with the Kindle for PC app from Amazon. In particular, you can now do the following while reading a book:

 

• Use U  or SHIFT+U  to move to the next or prior link in a book.

• Use N  or SHIFT+N  to move to the next or prior block of text that is not a link.

• Use INSERT+UP ARROW  or INSERT+NUM PAD 5  twice quickly to spell the current line or word just like in other applications.

• Press INSERT+PAGE DOWN to read the Kindle status bar.

 

In addition, JAWS now announces when you move to a new page while reading.

 

Other Changes

 

• In a Remote Desktop or Citrix connection, resolved an issue with speech not being interrupted as expected when pressing CTRL  or when typing.

• JAWS now correctly reads emojis in messages you receive in Outlook.

• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected when attempting to select an address from the Autocomplete list in an Outlook message.

• When switching views in the Outlook calendar, removed extraneous speech so that only details for the current view are announced.

• You can now configure whether or not levels are announced when navigating Word documents or Outlook emails, such as when moving in and out of lists. To toggle this feature, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ) and navigate to "Outline Level Indication."

• If you hear the buzzer sound while typing in Word or Outlook to indicate a misspelled word, when you manually correct or delete the word, JAWS now plays a ding sound to indicate the error has been corrected. With this feature enabled, JAWS also indicates spelling errors in documents as you navigate. If you prefer not to have JAWS indicate misspellings as you navigate, or you want to know about spelling errors, but you do not want to be alerted as you

type and make a correction, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ), turn off the "Spelling Buzzer on mistyped words" option, and then you will be able to configure the "Spelling Error Detection" setting.

• When attempting to insert a symbol in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while navigating the available symbols.

• Resolved issues with table navigation as well as columns not being reported correctly in certain non-uniform tables in Word.

• When doing a Say All ( INSERT+DOWN ARROW ) in Word 2013, addressed a customer reported issue where text was being skipped if a page break was encountered.

• Links selected in Research It results now open in the user's default web browser.

• Resolved a reported issue where position information in lists was not being announced as expected when the "Announce Position and Count when navigating in lists" option in the Configure Verbosity Levels section of Settings Center was disabled. When this option is off, JAWS should only announces position information when the list first gains focus or when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB .

• Resolved customer reported issues in Adobe Reader where JAWS was repeating table column titles multiple times and was not always reading the first line of a new page if the previous page ended with a list.

• Addressed a reported issue in Adobe Reader where keystrokes such as CTRL+PAGE UP  or PAGE DOWN  to move by page were not working in certain PDF documents.

• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS language auto detection was not working in PDF documents.

• Addressed an issue in Chrome where bulleted list items were being shown with the bullet on a separate line from the content.

• When you activate the JAWS Quick Keys mode in Google Docs ( INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q ), you can now press M  or SHIFT+M  to move to the next or previous spelling error. In addition, you can now press QUESTION MARK  to display help for this layer.

• Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual Ribbons in Office.

• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite software.

• JAWS now includes a Czech language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

JAWS2019 is struggling with Word for me, as well.  sometimes it reports that

Unload/reload is the only solution I have found.

Good Morning,
I am a software developer for a online training company and I am adding accessibility to our training framework. I have an "issue" that I would like some support on as I dont know the JAWS reader that well. Can you read the description below and let me know if this is a feature of JAWS, a bug with JAWS or a bug in my software. Thank you for your time!

  1. This is an online website built with standard html code
  2. The user can press the tab button to navigate around the site to the button and the onscreen text
  3. The user tabs to a block of text and JAWS reads out the text
  4. The user presses tab again and the focus changes to a hyperlink within that paragraph
  5. If the link is located at the start of the paragraph JAW will read "Google Link" - as this a hyperlink that opens the google search engine in a new window
  6. However if the link is located past a certain point in the paragraph Jaws not read "Google Link" - it will read the start of the paragraph and eventually read out "Google link" as well.

Is this expected behavior or is there an issue?

thanks so much for your time.

List Rules - Fri, 02/01/2019 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Friday, 1 February 2019
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-05:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

To get draws 2018 to come on all the time, do this. When running draws 2018,
go to the start up wizard. The hockey for this, is all age for the help menu
when you have gotten into the jaws window. After that, arrow up Until

pressing enter the page through without changing anything. When you have
closed the start up wizard, what I would do, is turn off the PC. Turn it
back on again, and see if jaws 2018 is the version that's running. Need

Addison,

No, get this straight -- not key shortcuts, but desktop shortcuts. When on
the desktop, pressing the letter J will jump to any icon with a title
beginning with J. That would mean she hears both JAWS 2018 and 2019,
presuming that both are on the desktop.

Hi All,

 

Here's the direct download link for the latest build, JAWS2019.1901.66 + what's new in this release.

 

32 & 64 Bit:

 

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1901.66 (January 2019)
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the December 2018 update and the January 2019 update.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

 

Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices

 

This new utility included in the latest releases of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion provides a solution to seamlessly sample and install or remove the Vocalizer
Expressive 2 voices used by all three products. This avoids the need to download anything from external pages and makes the entire process much easier
across all products. And remember, once voices are set up for one product, there is no need to install them again for the other products.

 

From the JAWS main window, press ALT+O to open the Options menu, expand the Voices submenu, and then select Add/Remove Voices to open the Add/Remove Vocalizer
Expressive Voices utility.

 

This dialog includes:

 

list of 7 items
• Language specific list of currently available Vocalizer Expressive 2 Premium voices.
• Ability to select and Install as many voices as you would like right from the list.
• See what voices are already installed as you review the list.
• Hear a sample of the currently focused voice in the list before deciding if you want to select it to be installed. To play a sample, just press ALT+P
while focused on the voice name in the list.
• Option to uninstall one or more voices.
• Option to uninstall all voices.
• Option to uninstall only the compact voices that had been previously installed.
list end

 

Note: If you remove a voice that is currently in use, your JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText will continue to speak using that voice until you restart the software
or reboot the computer. Once you restart, it will default to the next profile available. If there are no more Vocalizer Expressive Voices available, JAWS
and Fusion will default back to Eloquence.

 

In JAWS and Fusion, after installing a premium voice, a profile is created for each of those new individual voices which can be further customized using
the Voice Adjustment dialog box. You can also easily switch between all the new voices by pressing CTRL+INSERT+S to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog
box, pressing the first letter of the voice you want to use, and then pressing ENTER. If you prefer not to have a profile generated for each installed
voice, open the Voice Adjustment dialog box and clear the "Enable Additional Voice Profiles for installed Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices" check box so that
only the standard Vocalizer Expressive factory and user profiles are listed.

 

If you find that compact voice collections had previously been installed, there is also an option to remove all compact voices. This is especially beneficial
for users of Fusion or ZoomText 2018 or later which installs dozens of the compact voices by default. If you do not need all of these voices and languages,
this makes it easy to remove all compact voices at once.

 

Improved Kindle Support

 

We have made several improvements to performance when using JAWS with the Kindle for PC app from Amazon. In particular, you can now do the following while
reading a book:

 

list of 4 items
• Use U or SHIFT+U to move to the next or prior link in a book.
• Use N or SHIFT+N to move to the next or prior block of text that is not a link.
• Use INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+NUM PAD 5 twice quickly to spell the current line or word just like in other applications.
• Press INSERT+PAGE DOWN to read the Kindle status bar.
list end

 

In addition, JAWS now announces when you move to a new page while reading.

 

Other Changes
list of 19 items
• In a Remote Desktop or Citrix connection, resolved an issue with speech not being interrupted as expected when pressing CTRL or when typing.
• JAWS now correctly reads emojis in messages you receive in Outlook.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected when attempting to select an address from the Autocomplete list in an Outlook message.
• When switching views in the Outlook calendar, removed extraneous speech so that only details for the current view are announced.
• You can now configure whether or not levels are announced when navigating Word documents or Outlook emails, such as when moving in and out of lists.
To toggle this feature, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) and navigate to "Outline Level Indication."
• If you hear the buzzer sound while typing in Word or Outlook to indicate a misspelled word, when you manually correct or delete the word, JAWS now plays
a ding sound to indicate the error has been corrected. With this feature enabled, JAWS also indicates spelling errors in documents as you navigate. If
you prefer not to have JAWS indicate misspellings as you navigate, or you want to know about spelling errors, but you do not want to be alerted as you
type and make a correction, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V), turn off the "Spelling Buzzer on mistyped words" option, and then you will be able to configure
the "Spelling Error Detection" setting.
• When attempting to insert a symbol in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while navigating the available
symbols.
• Resolved issues with table navigation as well as columns not being reported correctly in certain non-uniform tables in Word.
• When doing a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) in Word 2013, addressed a customer reported issue where text was being skipped if a page break was encountered.
• Links selected in Research It results now open in the user's default web browser.
• Resolved a reported issue where position information in lists was not being announced as expected when the "Announce Position and Count when navigating
in lists" option in the Configure Verbosity Levels section of Settings Center was disabled. When this option is off, JAWS should only announces position
information when the list first gains focus or when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB.
• Resolved customer reported issues in Adobe Reader where JAWS was repeating table column titles multiple times and was not always reading the first line
of a new page if the previous page ended with a list.
• Addressed a reported issue in Adobe Reader where keystrokes such as CTRL+PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to move by page were not working in certain PDF documents.
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS language auto detection was not working in PDF documents.
• Addressed an issue in Chrome where bulleted list items were being shown with the bullet on a separate line from the content.
• When you activate the JAWS Quick Keys mode in Google Docs (INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q), you can now press M or SHIFT+M to move to the next or previous spelling
error. In addition, you can now press QUESTION MARK to display help for this layer.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual Ribbons in Office.
• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite software.
• JAWS now includes a Czech language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

To get draws 2018 to come on all the time, do this. When running draws 2018, go to the start up wizard. The hockey for this, is all age for the help menu when you have gotten into the jaws window.

Hi Addison,

My favorite way to quit Jaws is to hit Insert+F4 which puts you on the
OK button to quit Jaws. Then use Windows+R to bring up thee Run dialogue
and type "jaws" (no quotes) and the version number you want to start,
such as jaws2018.

JAWS2019.1901.66 Update Download Link + What's new

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Here's the direct download link for the latest build, JAWS2019.1901.66 + what's new in this release.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1901.66 (January 2019)
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the December 2018 update and the January 2019 update.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
 
Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices
 
This new utility included in the latest releases of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion provides a solution to seamlessly sample and install or remove the Vocalizer
Expressive 2 voices used by all three products. This avoids the need to download anything from external pages and makes the entire process much easier
across all products. And remember, once voices are set up for one product, there is no need to install them again for the other products.
 
From the JAWS main window, press ALT+O to open the Options menu, expand the Voices submenu, and then select Add/Remove Voices to open the Add/Remove Vocalizer
Expressive Voices utility.
 
This dialog includes:
 
list of 7 items
• Language specific list of currently available Vocalizer Expressive 2 Premium voices.
• Ability to select and Install as many voices as you would like right from the list.
• See what voices are already installed as you review the list.
• Hear a sample of the currently focused voice in the list before deciding if you want to select it to be installed. To play a sample, just press ALT+P
while focused on the voice name in the list.
• Option to uninstall one or more voices.
• Option to uninstall all voices.
• Option to uninstall only the compact voices that had been previously installed.
list end
 
Note: If you remove a voice that is currently in use, your JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText will continue to speak using that voice until you restart the software
or reboot the computer. Once you restart, it will default to the next profile available. If there are no more Vocalizer Expressive Voices available, JAWS
and Fusion will default back to Eloquence.
 
In JAWS and Fusion, after installing a premium voice, a profile is created for each of those new individual voices which can be further customized using
the Voice Adjustment dialog box. You can also easily switch between all the new voices by pressing CTRL+INSERT+S to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog
box, pressing the first letter of the voice you want to use, and then pressing ENTER. If you prefer not to have a profile generated for each installed
voice, open the Voice Adjustment dialog box and clear the "Enable Additional Voice Profiles for installed Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices" check box so that
only the standard Vocalizer Expressive factory and user profiles are listed.
 
If you find that compact voice collections had previously been installed, there is also an option to remove all compact voices. This is especially beneficial
for users of Fusion or ZoomText 2018 or later which installs dozens of the compact voices by default. If you do not need all of these voices and languages,
this makes it easy to remove all compact voices at once.

error. In addition, you can now press QUESTION MARK to display help for this layer.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual Ribbons in Office.
• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite software.

Re: Problem using Word 2016

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Did you either try a repair or an uninstall and a reinstall of jaws? If not, you might try that and see if it works. Otherwise, I would report it somehow do VFO.

Changing the sound when JAWS detects a misspelled word

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     I’ve received the latest update to JAWS 2019. However, I don’t like one of the sounds it uses for notifying you of a misspelled word, when you backtrack to it. I think it’s the hammer sound, and it will get pretty annoying, I’d say to listen to very much. How can I find what sounds are used for denoting misspelled words and that sort of thing? I’m using Microsoft Word through my Office 365 subscription, so it’s probably up-to-date. However, I’d like to change the sound back to the buzzer during a backtrack to a misspelled word. I think that’s what it was before this JAWS update, so would like it back. If it can’t be changed, no Biggy. I just wanted to use something else than the hammer.

Thank you,

Ashleigh Piccinino

P.S. If I am not explaining clearly, please check with others on the JAWS and Win10 groups to see if they have better explanations.

I get this behavior with jaws 2018. It happens whenever I switch from
the emulator window to an office app be it word or skype or whatever.

I did contact FS but felt pretty much blown off.

As is indicated, unloading and reloading Jaws helps temporarily, but the
problem often returns.



Has anyone contacted FS about this?



I will do so if I can replicate the issue consistently.

Based on some of the previous comments, I disagree with your assessment.  The fact that people are hung up on the name staying the same indicates a lack of accurate perspective.  As a former programmer, I feel it's my obligation to drive the point home that Edge as it is currently implemented is, unquestionably, a dead end.

And with this I'm done.  If anyone wishes to believe otherwise, so be it.

Re: Microsoft Edge Under Windows 7

 

Brian,

 

I think we all understand that essentially Edge, if the name stays, will become a different browser from what it is now. But anything else is just semantics, I could argue that “Edge is a dead end” is an incorrect statement because once Edge becomes a Chromium based browser it might turn out to be really good, maybe just as good as Chrome or better and hence “Edge” is not a dead end. You argue it’s a dead end in it’s current form and given the current technology used, but as I said, it’s just words.

That they'll retain the name Edge is irrelevant.  The Edge browser that's been on Windows 10 up to and including Version 1809 is not, in any way, the same or even vaguely similar to what will replace it, even if the replacement is called Edge.  That code base change is monumental.

My central point is we're talking about 2 completely different programs, even if they share a brand name.
