Hi Bill,
 
I'm sure it's a typo or you haven't had enough coffee yet but, you need to open the Settings Center 1st with, Insert + 6, be fore you can open the default all applications with, Control, Shift + D.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Hi, Swati. To set reading of tool tip,

1. If you want the tool tips to be read, no matter which program is open, Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default JAWS script.
2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row, to open Settings Center.
3. Arrow down to Speech Verbocity, and open with Right Arrow.
4. Arrow down to Configure Verbocity levels, and open with Right Arrow.
5. Tool Tip will be the last item in the check boxes to be checked.

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.

Hi Net bat,
 
Press, Insert, Control + Numpad minus / Jaws cursor key.  This keystroke is a toggle so it'll turn this feature both on and off.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: goldwave scripts not working properly

Richard Turner
 

Mario,
I believe I have the same scripts, but they are in the folder:
"C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2019\Scripts\enu\"

I confirmed this by opening the Jaws menu, then on the utilities menu, explore utilities, then explore scripts, which is where I confirmed that path, and the scripts work fine for me.

Subject: goldwave scripts not working properly

the file that I downloaded is goldwave_5-6_jaws_scripts_2_0.zip and after extracting the files and copying them to the appropriate location (see below), when I check the script version, it is 1.6. does anyone have the latest scripts for Goldwave, or direct me where to get them?

in the meantime, I have copied all of the files to the following folder:

"C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2018\Settings\enu\"

but when I attempt to select a choice in an edit combo, I cannot simply arrow down or up to different choices unless I press alt+down arrow to open the dialog, arrow to the spoken choice, and press alt+up arrow before I can preview the change. I did not have to do this previously when I had JAWS 16. now that I use 2018, what can I do to fix this dilemma?

Hi again Swati. I left out a step in my last message. I will restate how to turn on tool tips.

Hi, Swati. To set reading of tool tip,

1. If you want the tool tips to be read, no matter which program is open, Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default JAWS script.
2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row, to open Settings Center.
3. Arrow down to Speech Verbocity, and open with Right Arrow.
4. Arrow down to Configure Verbocity levels, and open with Right Arrow.
5. Choose which level of verbocity you wish to configure by arrowing to it, then press SPACE BAR to configure.
6. Tool Tip will be the last item in the check boxes to be checked.

Hi,

All PDF document that I try and open via AdobeDC either by double clicking the file from within a folder or as an e-mail attachment or from the File Open menu in AdobeDC are no longer read by JAWS. I've checked the Preferences which are laid out differently to what I can remember the last time I was in there in AdobeDC and it would appear everything is switched on correctly. when I look at the About item in Help, I can see that AdobeDC knows I'm running JAWS.

When the files open, they don't do the usual preparing for reading and no progress display is shown on the screen. The PDF files are not images and I can OCR them through convenient OCR.

What am I missing? Any hints gladly accepted before I try a full reinstall of AdobeDC.

Re: JAWS Not Reading AdobeDC PDF Documents #advisory

Mark,
Perhaps they are opening in protected view. Once you open the file in Acrobat; you can try hitting f6 A couple of times until you hear protected view. Then you can tab forward a couple times until you hear “enable all features”. Hit enter or spacebar and you should then be able to read your document.
Hope this helps.
Regards
Tony

1. Go to Preferences either via the menu or by pressing Control + K

2. Type “S” until you get to “Security (Enhanced) or arrow down the list until you find it

3. Tab once and you hear “Enable Protected Mode at startup”, in your case this is most likely checked.

4. Press the spacebar to uncheck it, tab to OK (in this case Shift + Tab gets you there faster) and activate it.

5. Close Acrobat Reader DC and reopen a PDF and all will be well. It seems like a recent update to Acrobat Reader DC has checked this option even if it was previously unchecked.

Hi,

I'm currently running JAWS 2019 latest edition and Windows 10 Version 10.0.17763 and AdobeDC Version: 19.12.20034.328841

All PDF document that I try and open via AdobeDC either by double clicking the file from within a folder or as an e-mail attachment or from the File Open menu in AdobeDC are no longer read by JAWS. I've checked the Preferences which are laid out differently to what I can remember the last time I was in there in AdobeDC and it would appear everything is switched on correctly. when I look at the About item in Help, I can see that AdobeDC knows I'm running JAWS.

When the files open, they don't do the usual preparing for reading and no progress display is shown on the screen. The PDF files are not images and I can OCR them through convenient OCR.

What am I missing? Any hints gladly accepted before I try a full reinstall of AdobeDC.

Have a great day.

Mark

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.

when things don't seem to be going your way, always know that God has
a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him, He will give you great
gifts. We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know
that His ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.
