How to read tool tip with Jaws

Swati Sinha
 

Hi all,
As the subject line suggests, I would like to know how to read tooltip
of a control with the help of jaws 2019.
In previous versions, one can enable tooltip from quick settings and
jaws was good to go.
But in the latest version 2019, I am unable to find it in the settings.
Please help.

JAWS and iCloud

Marty Hutchings
 

When is JAWS going to work with iCloud?  I am using Windows 7 and JAWS 18 and now when iCloud pops up in the middle of what I am working on and the screen goes mute, it is very aggravating.  How do I get iCloud to stop popping up.  I keep on hitting the Cancel button when I can find it, but 5 minutes later, there it is again.

       As an aside, if you actually log in to Google Chrome itself, you will automatically be logged in to the Chrome Hangouts App using the same account when you activate the control to bring up the window.

        I can't recall the last time I logged in to the Hangouts App since I'm always logged in to Chrome itself.

Hi.

 

I find if you have forms mode set to manual, then navigate to where you want to  go that works just fine. As for getting the app to start so you can sign in, the best way is to switch on touch navigation, press right arrow until you hear google hangouts, then press enter.  then press the plus key on the numpad to switch back to pc mode, then type your username and password to log in. When you get to the main hangouts window press c until you hear conversations list box, then press enter. You can navigate through your list of conversations by pressing either up or down arrow keys. When you hear the conversation you want, press enter and you will be taken to that particular conversation. When you want to switch conversations, as far as I am aware there is no particular way to do this while keeping the active conversation open, so press escape to close that conversation window, then repeat the  steps to get to the new conversation you want to view.  Press c to get to the conversations list box, press enter and arrow to the conversation you want then press enter. Hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions, feel free to write back.

 

Jay.

William,

         I have been playing with the Hangouts App using NVDA with a combination of traditional and object navigation, the latter of which is the equivalent of the touch cursor in JAWS if memory is serving.   I still don't have the hang of it entirely, but I do know that once I get to the conversations list I have to change mode to move "person by person" or "conversation by conversation" down that list.  But right now, once I transition to the actual messages list for a conversation I can get them to read, but I cannot seem to transition back to the conversations list for love nor money.

          Someone who uses JAWS with the Hangouts App will need to speak to the issues with JAWS and the App and navigating it directly.

Hi Brian,

I have installed the plugin for google chrome.

Jaws is no speaking the incomming tekst of a new message so this is a good step forwards.

It would be nice if I can find a kind of list where the history of the incomming messages is shown.

And it would be great if i could reply (and start a new conversation from there.

Thx in advance,

Kind regards,

William Windels

Hi!

 

I am using Windows 7, Jaws 2019 and Firefox - all with the latest updates.  In firefox, I already have installed the plug-in that makes a sound when a download is *completed*.  However, I wish I could have some sort of a progress announcement dialog *as the download is happening* too.  Can that be done?

Re: scrolling with Jaws cursor

David Moore
 

Hi!

The JAWS cursor moves the mouse pointer, and you can not scroll the mouse pointer.

What a sighted person does, and we have to do the same, is to scroll the web page.

Just press page up and page down to scroll the web page, and you will be able to read more text with the JAWS cursor.

The JAWS cursor is restricted to the current screen, because that is the way the mouse pointer is!

Could someone tell me how to get the Jaws cursor to scroll to the next page while on the Internet. The text I am trying to read will not read with the PC cursor so I route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor to read it but I get to the bottom of the                 page and I can't get the Jaws cursor to go to the next page or screen.  Thanks, Tom

Re: Please help me learn how to paste scripts into JAWS 19 on Windows 10

muhammadBilal Arshad
 

its pretty much simple. do the following:
1. press windows+r to open up the run dialogue box and type there exactly:
%appdata%
2. file explorer will open browse to:
freedomscientific\jaws\jawsVersion(e.g2019)\settings\language(e.g enu)
3. paste there.
note: for current user account only.


Re: Please help me learn how to paste scripts into JAWS 19 on Windows 10

Steve Matzura
 

Scripts go here:


%AppData%\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\xxx\Settings\lll


You can start by copying all the files belonging to the script(s) to the clipboard in the usual way, then open the Run dialog with Windows Key plus R, type appdata, and press ENTER. After that,just choose the cited directories as you go, and paste your script(s) in the language-specific directory. Close the windows when you're done with them.


where 'xxx' is the version of JAWS in which you want to use the scripts,and 'lll' is your local language designation, e.g., enu.


Been that way forever, regardless of Windows version.

Hi,

 

I have downloaded and extracted some scripts for JAWS. I haven’t done this on Windows 10 before, and my memory from Windows 7 is either failing me or it is different in Windows 10 than it was in Windows 7.

 

How do I get to the place to paste the scripts? A step by step would be most appreciated.

Spell checker comes in multiple languages. I did hire someone years ago to help with my website and we spent 80%of the time fixing the obvious grammatical and spelling mistakes. How you come across to the public means a lot. Would you hire someone to take out your garbage if they came wearing a suit?  Likewise, if you hired a limo to take you to a high society event and the driver came with apparel that looked like it had been slept in or dragged through the mud as well as the limo filthy, would you want to utilize that service? Sorry to be so picky and expecting quality service when the person is charging double or triple digits for their service.

There is a face book group for word press users and the moderator offers to help people with issues.  Keep in mind he does this for a price and, for me , personally when he responded to my request, his spelling and grammar was less then satisfactory.  Thus, I thought if he puts the same amount of effort into building a website using word press as he does writing correspondence, I am not sure his work would be up to par and worth the money he would charge.  .

My question is are there any new features that we should know about? Also can I use this version with an older version of jaws? Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my questions!
