moderated Outlook 2019 reading incoming emails automatically

Rick Mladek
 

Hi all,

Yesterday I finally upgraded my Office Suite from 2010 to the recent 2019. The install went easy and the importing of email was also without too many headaches. However, I notice that when I'm not right at my computer and emails come in, Jaws begins reading the text of the incoming message, automatically. I've gone through the Outlook settings and the Jaws settings and can not figure out what is needing clicked or unclicked, so to speak.

Any and all help highly appreciated.

Also: Windows 10 and the latest Jaws 2019 updated version.

Re: goldwave scripts not working properly

Mario
 

well, I don't know what's wrong. the scripts worked just fine when I had
JAWS 16 and 18. I had done a repair on 2018 but the problem remains.

Richard, are the scripts that you have version 2.0 or 1.6? there is a
keystroke to show that information, but forgot what it is. it's not
insert+q but something else.

if anyone has a constructive suggestion, please do tell.

Subject: goldwave scripts not working properly

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?

if you're wanting to install 2019, I think the offline installer will
have the OCR component included. make sure you save the offline installer.

I don't think there is a way to access that notification like there was
in Internet Explorer, but often, if the dialog has buttons that warrant
a response, the buttons will often have a keyboard shortcut where you
can press it to respond accordingly. for example, the notification pops
up, and JAWS reads the message, and there is a button to OK the message.
the OK button might have a shortcut that you can press instead of
clicking it. for instance, alt+o or what ever.

I think there might be a way in windows 10 that can access any
notification and allow you to review/respond accordingly.

Hello



I use chrome version 74.0.3729.169 64 bit and there, websites could give
somme messages on my computer with windows10.



This messages are spoken by jaws just as popup.

It would be nice if I could activate that popup to go directly to the
message so I can answer from there.

Any idea how I can activate this chat-window?



Many thx for any answer.

Not sure on that.  Just may be to a point where it is no longer able to recover anything.

Even if it says not available, I would try hitting on the button and see if anything happens.

Otherwise, if this message is important, your next step is to call Microsoft accessibility line at 800-936-5900 and see if they can help.

Hi there.

I am using Windows 10 and JAWS 19. I am teaching a Masters of Ed. Course
attempting to use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. It is not pretty from an
accessibility standpoint in my experience. I have four weeks left of a
twelve week semester. I am a person who is totally blind. Alt m will turn
your microphone on and off. I do find however it sometimes will not
consistently perform the action. Usually JAWS will state whether it is
toggling the microphone on or off. If it just says alt M and not the
extended information it has not performed the action. I have the grad
students doing a lot of different presentations and thus I do use hand up
and down. This is accomplished by alt h toggle. Usually the screen is
sharing PowerPoint so I don't usually use the camera, except maybe at the
beginning of class and on the first day of class, but that toggle is alt c.

If JAWS is focused in the chat bar to input information, I no longer hear
what is being typed in the chat box by students. I just get the "pop" sound
to notify me someone posted. Thus you don't want to leave focus on the chat
bar and then you hear everyone's postings.

I keep my system set at moderator status. Students are given presenter
status as needed and a few times I have sent them the guest link for
moderator status.

This was a bit of a last minute request to teach this class so I did not
have time to play around so much and I have not taught using Blackboard and
Moodle before. In that regard, we decided it was most realistic that instead
of me frustrating myself to no end and not getting things to work, we are
co-teaching this course and my colleague is navigating the tech as we
troubleshoot through. It is quite robust and we use the break-out rooms a
lot. Recording the class is easy. There is a great timer option. Breakout
groups can be done randomly or manually. A shortfall is if students are in
breakout rooms, their whiteboards do not get transferred back to the main
room. We added in using OneNote to facilitate this ease of transfer.
Students had been copying their group charts into Word and pasting them in
the main room white board but we are finding OneNote preferable.
Prior to leaving the class, I would encourage you to go through the entire
chat bar/white board and copy all the input from students and keep it for
your records. I just put it in a word doc. It is all time stamped and
students named, so you can really get a better overview of student
participation using that format. Lots of the students also use microphone
and participate by audio. This is captured only on the class recording
though.

I am not sure if that helps.

You can reach me privately contacting sharon.ballantyne@...

Blackboard does not play nicely with Internet Explorer. My student used google Chrome with it, although I understand Firefox works well also.
