Ok, forgive my ignorance. I thought the jaws key was the insert. Wrong? Please tell me which key the jaws key is if not the insert key on my num-pad.

Thank you,

Hello,

I do not post much but I must state that I do gain a lot of useful information by all participating. I thank you for sharing your knowledge. However, this picture recognition new addition to the latest version of Jaws 2019, I am not able to use this for it simply is not working.

I go to windows explorer and make my way to my photos folder.
I arrow down to a photo
I then hit alt +spacebar and then the f key.
I am sent to the menu bar, files icon where you would choose to close, open etc. a new folder or document.

I ask, what do I need to do to activate this properly?

Hi,

Using Jaws version 2019.1903.9 ILM Home Use
Windows 10

I go into windows explorer and hit alt +spacebar and it goes into the menu bar file tab. If I hit the p key I get an error sound and therefore unable to hit any other key, as with the f.

Ideas??

Re: How do I move into and out of the header/footer pane in MS Word 2016? - SOLVED

Hi Heather!

Thanks for your below. Yes, escape gets me out of the header/footer view and back into the main document pane. That was too simple for me ūüėČ Your method below for getting into the header/footer view is great too.

I tried control+alt+n as suggested below, and also control+F6 as someone else suggested. Neither works. The former changed the document view to "draft" (which such view yielded no resolution) and the latter did nothing.

F6 should do it. I always use alt-v, then h. It is a carry-over from

Need recommendation for an accessible printer

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I need a recommendation for a good, robust and hopefully accessible printer.  It must be a multi-function printer (print, copy, scan).  It must be able to handle letter and legal size paper.  It must have an automatic document feeder.  It should be able to print on two sides.  About the accessibility, it is OK if that is accomplished via its software interface.  My very excellent, 15 year-old Canon MFC 6550 is nearing its end, sadly.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Which is all too true and all too sad.   There are times, not many, but enough, when drag and drop, either literal or emulated through the keyboard, is the only way to accomplish a given task.

Also, given that this is a fundamental function of any GUI OS, and has been part and parcel of every screen reader I've dealt with, the probability that documentation has gotten screwed up is incredibly higher than the probability of such a basic function ever being dropped (and for the reasons I mentioned).

Well, I’ve solved, or at least partially explained my Jaws sluggishness issue.

 

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

 

It’s rather strange, I know.

I’m using JAWS 18 and Outlook 13; experience similar, if not worse, issues.  Includes Sluggishness, and getting thrown out of Outlook when attempting to  open emails by pressing enter.  Also, this morning, when I’d tab or shift tab, within message, to get to an attachment, JAWS would just go completely silent on me for at least thirty seconds and when returning, had lost focus.kept

I use the email client, not web mail, which, I’m told by  our IT guy, is the reason for my issues.  I prefer to use Outlook email client, the web mail is more difficult to navigate, in my opinion.

Subject: Problem With Jaws Sluggishness With Outlook E-mail

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ¬Ĺ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

              

Tom Behler

I know why. you seem to get ticked off when someone says to use the
feature. even if the person who has the question doesn't have enough
functional vision to see like you can.

Sorry, Bill, I skipped an essential step here.  Don't ask me why, but
even if you open the hardware tab by opening a given device's
properties, there is a hardware list at the top of that tab, and often
the first thing or several things listed are not the actual drive you're
looking at.

For instance, if I get to the Hardware tab for my SD card, the label
above the list is "All Disk Drives," and the SDHC card is actually the
second one in that list.  You've got to navigate to the drive you're
actually trying to look at again in this particular tab before
continuing on with the rest of the instructions.

I apologize for the oversight.

I'll answer again, as best I can.   For virtually any write task that involves a single small file, or even a few small files.  It's just done before you or I or any human being could possibly move our hands to pull the drive connection.   If you've ever done a cut and paste that doesn't involve many, many files you have experienced this directly.  Also, in the case of File Explorer or Windows Explorer, if it is something that's taking a long time you should get a progress dialog.  You can try to force this, too, by trying to cut and paste a folder you know contains thousands upon thousands of files to a USB storage device.  A status box comes up giving you time estimate to completion as well as percent complete.

If I'm doing, say, a full system image backup to an external HDD, the backup utility has a status monitor that I go back and look at to see if it has completed, and whether it completed successfully.

While I access all of the above visually, they are equally accessible via screen reader.  And if you go to try to find a status box for a copy, and none is there, it's done, which it is in the vast majority of cases where a few files are being shuffled around.

What I was trying to get at is I do not rely on blinking activity lights and the like because it's entirely hit or miss whether a given USB thumb drive even has one, SD cards definitely don't, and HDDs vary as to what they show depending on the brand.  My Toshiba external backup drive happens to have an indicator light that tells me not only if there's any read/write activity going on, but whether it's at USB 2.0 (or lower) or USB 3.0 speeds.  My Western Digital drive, by contrast, has a constantly blinking light if it's connected and has power, which gives me nothing of use to go on.  Thus, the presence of an ongoing status from a long running program like a full system image backup, or the absence of a status box from something like a copy/paste or cut/paste, tells me what I need to know about whether there's any ongoing activity to a given drive.

Hi, Brian. I inserted a thumb drive. I brought up the properties, switched to the hardware tab, clicked the device properties button, clicked the Change settings button, and there was no policies tab. I am using Microsoft Windows

Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.379) home version.

I actually seldom use anything on the drive itself as far as thumb drives or SD cards go to determine whether a task is finished writing.  Virtually anything where I'm copying, saving, etc., to a drive (be it a HDD or thumb/SD) gives a status that it's done.   Saving something like a word file, unless it were to be a multi-thousand page tome, is always over before you could even move your hand to pull the plug.

I'm not telling anyone that they should not use Eject if they so choose.  But what I am saying is that if you are confident that there is no write activity currently in process for a USB connected storage device that using Eject gains you nothing.  Some will always use it just for the comfort factor, and that's fine.   Just don't panic if you have to pull a drive without being able to do so that you know was not being written to at the time.

Which can only occur if you pull while a write process is active, period, as far as the end-user action being able to cause an issue.  They're not write-cached, either, as they're considered USB devices.  And I just checked that on my own machine, where I have an SD card that I routinely pull without ejecting without any ill effects.
