Re: Times Jaws not coming up during boot up

Yep.  If you don't have to enter a password on the logon screen, make sure jaws isn't set to start on the logon screen, just have it set to start after logon.

Hello, I’m using Jaws2019 which is set to start up at logon screen. There are times it occurs and times it doesn’t. I have it on my desktop so I can just press window key plus D, j and hit enter to get it to start. Is there a reason this occurs? Thanks Kevin


Re: more Jaws problems from my list...

Modern systems aren't going to be strained by a speech synthesizer, most cpu's are idling a lot of the time anyway.  I suspect the issue is that some webpages are putting out text strings that look similar to tripple talk commands.  Might be time to move to the more modern age.

Does this speaking these strange characters happen with other synthesizers
or just the tripple talk? I have had some websites where the tripple talk
does not work, but other synths do work.

Hi All,

To begin, I thank you all for helping Zel and me with the sluggishness of
Jaws due to not disabling the graphics accelerator option. This did show a
great amount of improvement but I still notice some sluggishness, but not as
bad, in MS Xcell.
Now, let?s work on a couple more issues I have with Jaws.

First, I could be going down through a website one line at a time when
Jaws begins to read some sort of java script. It just continues to read so
many characters of all kinds. Including letters, numbers and symbols as
punctuation marks etc. It is reading at a very high speed, as well and it is
difficult to hear all characters read aloud.
There is no way to stop this and I either have to do a hard shut down
since the pc now becomes frozen while Jaws goes crazy or I turn off my
external synthesizer and jaws and then go through a process of turning all
back on in a special sequence.
I use: Windows 10, Jaws 2019 latest update and a triple-talk USB external
synthesizer. My pc has 8 GB of ram and has plenty of amount when I put a
test on the system with many programs open and functioning simultaneously.
Is there a setting or a hopeful fix to prevent this from happening? This
is very difficult when I am going over code received from colleagues and my
pc goes senile on me.
Next, when I hit F7 to do a spell check, Jaws practically goes to sleep. I
hit escape or tab over to the original outlook message and copy paste into a
Microsoft Word document to do the spell/grammar check.
Any thoughts on this baffling issue?

I hope to hear of all your thoughts regarding these problems addressed.

Thanks to all,

Rick

Friends I am interested in helping a JAWS user client to access her Gmail effectively. She does not have outlook unfortunately so she is having to use her browser and go to GMail
Can anyone supply me with some JAWS and gmail hit keys to help? I know when G Mail opens she can press T for table to get to the inbox. Anything else would be much appreciated
Thank you kindly,

Re: more Jaws problems from my list...

 

No harm in trying Eloquence and see if you indeed experience the same problems. When dealing with stuff like that any solution is usually a process of trial and error or, if you prefer, of elimination.
I haven't used a hardware synthesizer probably since the days of Windows 95 or at least Windows 98. I am not saying it's wrong to use one, but most systems especially nowadays have more than enough computing power and RAM to handle a software synthesizer especially one like Eloquence, but even Vocalizer nowadays is super responsive.in

Office 365 invitation received

Hi,

I'm not sure but who is Pamela Barnett? I received an invitation, from her, where she is sharing her Microsoft 365 program with me. As so damned nice of you to offer this Pam, this truly makes me nervous where I have to click on this tab or that and click to accept your invitation. Am I offering someone to get into my network? As much as I love your offer Pam, I'm nervous as hell to do anything.

Yes, there were times when the auto-complete list didn't read in Jaws and apparently some people still experience this, but it's working for me and many others. There are occasionally other forces at play when it comes to issues in a particular application. Is Outlook perfect, far from it, but I would have the same problem if somebody claimed this characteristic for Thunderbird.

No offense taken. But in my defense: If using something because it works is biased then I am biased. Yes I had an issue with corrupt files. first time in 5 years that I have had any problems. And it is not just me lots of us use it because it is easier and doesn't do all the weird things outlook does. People use outlook mostly because that is what the corporate world uses as part of the office suite. Doesnt have anything to do with accessibility...

I hope Randy won't take this the wrong way, I don't mean any offense, but he is obviously somewhat biased towards it and suggested just a few days ago that if you use Thunderbird you have no more issues. But I also seem to remember him posting yesterday that he is having some issues with it which would proof my belief that no matter what you use there will always be issues, if there weren't everybody would use it and there would be no reason for groups like this one.

Subject: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

Hi all,

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very
sluggishly in
Outlook when crafting messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled
Outlook, and that has not fixed the issue. I currently write my
emails in Notepad and then copy-paste them which is inconvenient.
Can anyone think of other workarounds? I know that this problem does
not
come up for most, but I would nonetheless like to know what you would
do in case you were facing this issue. Thank you so much.
Best,
Rahul

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

 

I have been using Outlook for well over 20 years and just as you describe with Thunderbird, I have had the occasional issue here and there, but for the most part Outlook does work well and while I don't have need for all the features it has, I also don't come across many accessibility issues, either. Yes, there were times when the auto-complete list didn't read in Jaws and apparently some people still experience this, but it's working for me and many others. There are occasionally other forces at play when it comes to issues in a particular application. Is Outlook perfect, far from it, but I would have the same problem if somebody claimed this characteristic for Thunderbird.

No offense taken. But in my defense: If using something because it works is biased then I am biased. Yes I had an issue with corrupt files. first time in 5 years that I have had any problems. And it is not just me lots of us use it because it is easier and doesn't do all the weird things outlook does. People use outlook mostly because that is what the corporate world uses as part of the office suite. Doesnt have anything to do with accessibility...

Just for your infomation, Thunderbird has a calender also.

Hi listers,

I can't thank you enough for your valuable tips on this topic! Jaws has been bugging me for years with various laptops I've bought in that time. Your tips have resolved my problems to a great extent although Outlook still crashes at times when I use it with Jaws. The answer for me was to ' Disable hardware graphics acceleration'.

I find this is a Jaws issue. NVDA works ok with Outlook without having to disable hardware graphics acceleration.

Like Rick, I use Outlook because it's the program used for emails in the corporate sphere. It also has the calendar which I find very useful.

Thunderbird is a free open source email client that is accessible and works well. Way easier to use than outlook in my limited experiecne with outlook. I have tried Outlook several times but I always go back to Thunderbird. A lot of blind people prefer it and  use outlook for work.

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

 

It is a free email client from Mozilla, the same organization or whatever you want to call it which makes the Firefox browser.
I hope Randy won't take this the wrong way, I don't mean any offense, but he is obviously somewhat biased towards it and suggested just a few days ago that if you use Thunderbird you have no more issues. But I also seem to remember him posting yesterday that he is having some issues with it which would proof my belief that no matter what you use there will always be issues, if there weren't everybody would use it and there would be no reason for groups like this one.

Another thing that can be attempted is to disable Outlook add-ons. These can sometimes monkey around with Outlook.
Obviously you don't want to disable an add-on that you need, but you'd be surprised what gets enabled. Poke around and turn off what you don't need.

I use JAWS 2018, Windows 10, Outlook 16. JAWS behaves very sluggishly

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

 

No, it needs t be checked, the control reads as follows:
Disable hardware graphics acceleration
You "disable" it if you check the box.

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

 

At one point my I3 system did what you described and I don't know what happened, but without me doing anything this is for the most part not a problem any more. That particular system is still not nearly as snappy as my other systems which are I5 and I7, but I can understand that it is certainly annoying.

Re: JAWS Becomes Sluggish When Writing Emails in Outlook

Zel Iscel
 

Hi listers,

I can't thank you enough for your valuable tips on this topic! Jaws has been bugging me for years with various laptops I've bought in that time. Your tips have resolved my problems to a great extent although Outlook still crashes at times when I use it with Jaws. The answer for me was to ' Disable hardware graphics acceleration'.

I find this is a Jaws issue. NVDA works ok with Outlook without having to disable hardware graphics acceleration.

Like Rick, I use Outlook because it's the program used for emails in the corporate sphere. It also has the calendar which I find very useful.

Cheers
Zel
