Well, as an example I perform transcription.  Sometimes my fingers do not release the letter E quickly enough in the word w e.  If it is the first word of a sentence.  We and WE both sound the same so I have added a sound to W E  so I can hear the difference when proofing.

when choosing a sound as you refered to, there are 108 wav files to
choose from.
  the shared path that I have is "C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS\" but that folder gives me only
18 wav files.
and when I navigate to "C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Roaming\Freedom

so at this point, I am somewhat confused where the rest of the sounds

OK
I am using josh’s 2019 in the latest update.
Therefore, when I go into the dictionary and select the sound it doesn’t
show me the folder path.
So knowing that I’m using jars 2019 the latest build,
How do I determine what that path is, whether it’s shared or users?

Hey guys:

How does one find the folder that stores the available sounds to choose

I’d like to either add more sounds to the list of sounds available, or,

Alternatively, Go into that folder and modify a “wav” file to make a

Re: Creating keyboard shortcuts

Bill White
 

Hi, David. What operating System are you using. Since you didn't specify, I
will assume Windows 10.

How To Create Shortcuts


one thing Windows 10 doesn't provide is a way to create a shortcut to apps
so you can launch them from the desktop or elsewhere.

Or, at least an obvious way.

But as it turns out, all of the applications installed on your PC, including
the universal apps that come with Windows 10 or are downloaded from Windows
Store are accessible from a hidden shell view called Applications. Once you
open this view in File Explorer, you can create shortcuts for any of them.
Open the Run dialog (Windows+R=run), type in:
shell:AppsFolder

and then press enter to view this folder.

apps-folder

Find an app you wish to create a shortcut for, right-click (applications
key, or, shift+f10 and choose Create shortcut from the pop-up menu that
appears.

You'll be prompted that the shortcut cannot be placed here, and Windows will
recommend placing it on the desktop instead. Press enter on Yes. A shortcut
with the name App-Name Shortcut (Mail Shortcut) will appear on the desktop.
You can leave this as-is, or rename it (I usually remove the word,
Shortcut). And you can of course move the shortcut to any folder as needed.

Now, just repeat for all the app shortcuts you need.

Tom,

 

       Just as an idea, you might want to consider maintaining your lists external to Outlook itself.  You can export and import contact lists to Excel CSV format, and it might be easier to make changes to the Excel file, delete the existing list in Outlook, and import the revisions.  I have not tried this end-to-end but it should be simple enough to do a test case to see if it's viable.  I did export just a Contact Group this afternoon, and the initial text file could be edited, too, but since the fields are tab separated there's a much higher risk for screwing things up, so doing the conversion to Excel makes things a bit more foolproof.

 

 

       Contact Groups are, in actuality, a view of existing contacts, not a separate copy of those contacts.  I'm not quite sure how one can relocate them, at least not without additional details.

Re: Navigating Entries In An E-mail Group List

Jason White
 

Using the latest Microsoft Outlook from Office 365 (under Windows 10, JAWS 2019 with latest update), if I access a contact group inside the Address Book, up/down arrow keys move the focus between the names of group members. The braille display is updated as I move the focus, but nothing is spoken. Pressing Insert+numpad-up-arrow speaks the currently focused list entry, however.

 

I suspect it’s a JAWS bug, since the braille output is properly tracking the focus. I’m not sure whether that’s the same interface which Brian was testing, though.

I wonder if there is a bug in Outlook 2016, or possibly JAWS (and NVDA, too).

When I open a Contact Group, whether with a screen reader on or not, I can easily navigate through each and every member with the up and down arrow buttons.  The difference being that the screen reader is not tracking that movement up and down through the list at all corresponding to where Outlook itself has focus at that moment, which is odd.

I cannot imagine this behavior is intentional, and since it's occurring in NVDA, and it sounds like the same thing is happening in JAWS, I wonder if Outlook 2016 is somehow not exposing the fact that you've changed focus from one row/member to another in the list of members of a Contact Group.

my educated guess is that the sounds come from either the user sounds
folder or the shared sounds folder. the path to these folders may
differ in respect to what version of JAWS you're using.

and I think you can just add the sounds you want to use as long as
they are in the .wav format. and modifying existing ones shouldn't
present a problem.

Subject: adding a sound in jaws dictionary

Hey guys:

How does one find the folder that stores the available sounds to
choose when adding a sound to a jaws dictionary entry?

I’d like to either add more sounds to the list of sounds available,
or,

Alternatively, Go into that folder and modify a “wav” file to make a
better quality sound for the dictionary entery?

Please advise as you like.

Mike M.
