Re: How to read tool tip with Jaws

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

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.

Subject: How to read tool tip with Jaws

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.

I don't know what program it might apply to. When I try it it says,

Failed to move to details. Doesn't matter what program, or even just in
Windows 10.

On my new Windows 10 computer, which I set up last week, Adobe Acrobat Reader19 came already installed with the aforementioned Enable Protected Mode check box already unchecked by default.??

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,
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.

How to read tool tip with Jaws

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

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.

Re: google hangouts with jaws 19

Jay <jcoffin@...>
 

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.
