Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this June update.

What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1906.10 (June 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the April 2019 update and the June 2019 update.
 
To download the latest release, visit the
Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
 
Enhance Support for Accessing Comments and Revisions in Braille
 
For users who primarily use braille when navigating Word documents, the following changes greatly improve the experience when attempting to access various
document features like comments, revisions, footnotes, and endnotes from the braille display.
 
When the cursor is on a comment, the letter C is now displayed in the last status cell. In addition, as with previous versions, R is still displayed to
indicate revised text, and if Track Changes in Word is configured to display all markup, the letters i and r will be displayed to indicate inserted text
and the letters d and r will be displayed to show deleted text.
 
As you read a document, text to which a comment has been applied, text revisions, and footnote and endnote references are underlined using dots 7 and 8
in the main document pane. Pressing a cursor router twice quickly on the underlined text displays a flash message containing details about the comment,
revision, footnote or endnote. For example, if you press a cursor router on a revision that includes deleted text, JAWS and Fusion displays a message telling
you that the following text has been deleted, and shows the deleted text. Pressing INSERT+TAB while the cursor is on commented text, text revision, footnote
or endnote reference  will speak this information as well.
 
If you press a cursor router twice quickly on any text in the document not underlined in braille, then only font and attribute information such as bold,
italic, and underline is displayed. This is similar info to what is spoken when pressing INSERT+F.
 
Support for Reading Math Content in Kindle Books
 
You can now use JAWS and Fusion to study math equations included in Kindle books opened in the Amazon Kindle for PC app using both speech and braille.
For braille users, math expressions are shown using the Nemeth braille code, which is a system exclusive to English.
 
Reading math in the Kindle app works very similar to accessing math on web pages. When you encounter Math content in a Kindle book, JAWS describes the
expression, followed by the message "math content." If you are using a braille display and JAWS is configured for one of the English Contracted Braille
modes, the message "Math" is displayed followed by the expression.
 
Pressing ENTER while focused on the math content opens the Math Viewer where you can explore the expression in greater detail in both speech and braille
by doing the following:
 
list of 6 items
• To move between parts of the expression, use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys.
• To focus in on a partial expression, press DOWN ARROW.
• To return to the whole expression, press UP ARROW.
• To read all the partial expressions at the current nesting level, press INSERT+UP ARROW.
• To read the current partial expression, press NUM PAD 5 or INSERT+NUM PAD 5.
• From within the Math Viewer, press ESC or ALT+F4 to exit.
list end
 
Notepad++ Support
 
This  popular free open-source editor offers productivity features for people editing everything from HTML to JavaScript and Python. Some key improvements
include:
 
list of 3 items
• If line numbers are being shown, JAWS speaks them and shows them in braille.
• JAWS speaks and brailles autocomplete suggestions.
• Contracted braille input works properly.
list end
 
Support for the PuTTY and SecureCRT Emulators
 
PuTTY is free and widely used at colleges for connecting to Linux machines. SecureCRT is not free but offers additional features when connecting to remote
hosts. Both are well supported with the latest JAWS update.
 
Changed How JAWS works with the Access Bridge for Java Applications
 
Now that Oracle has changed the licensing terms for the Standard Edition of the Java Platform, many customers are looking for alternatives. One of these
alternatives is the
AdoptOpenJDK.
 
Previously, JAWS would only load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from the Windows System32 directory. This worked with the Oracle Java Runtime Environment
because it always installed the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in that location. The alternative Java Runtime Environments do not install the WindowsAccessBridge
DLL in that location.
 
JAWS has been modified so that it uses three different strategies for locating the WindowsAccessBridge DLL.
 
list of 3 items
1. The path to the WindowsAccessBridge DLL can be specified by the Windows Registry. It looks for a registry entry named WindowsAccessBridgeDllPath in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common. If the registry entry exists
and the file indicated by the registry entry exists, JAWS will load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from that location.
2. If strategy 1 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the Windows System32 directory.
3. If strategy 2 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the directories listed in the PATH environment variable.
list end
 
Other Changes
list of 19 items
• In Adobe Acrobat Reader, resolved a reported issue where the virtual buffer was empty after opening a PDF document and the Adobe options to "Enable Protected
Mode at startup" and "Run in AppContainer" were selected.
• Resolved issues where Fusion and ZoomText (Utilities Shortcuts) would remain in Start Menu searches, even after uninstalling the software.
• Addressed known issues where it was sometimes necessary to configure JAWS to use the classic settings for some retail versions of Office 2016 and 2019
in order for certain features like spellcheck and autocomplete to work as expected.
• When the cursor is on a revision in a document such as inserted or deleted text as well as a comment, pressing INSERT+TAB now speaks additional details
about the revised text.
• Similar to Word, if you move the cursor to AutoCorrected text in an editable message in Outlook, JAWS now speaks the message about pressing the Office
command, ALT+SHIFT+F10, to open the menu of AutoCorrect options.
• In the Outlook Calendar, addressed issues using JAWS with the Schedule View.
• In the most recent updates to Outlook 365, resolved issues where the ALT+1 through 4 commands were not reading message headers and braille was not working
as expected in the To, CC, and BCC fields.
• In applications such as Microsoft Office or the Windows Mail app, when pressing INSERT+5 on the numbers row to check the foreground and background colors,
JAWS now says "default" if no explicit text or background colors are set.
• Resolved a reported issue where the setting to allow web application reserved keystrokes was not working in Chrome. When this option is enabled in Settings
Center or Quick Settings, JAWS keystrokes that are also defined as keyboard shortcuts on certain websites like Facebook are passed directly to the web
application instead of performing the JAWS command.
• When composing a message in GMail using Chrome, addressed an issue where a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) was not working.
• Removed extraneous "clickable" announcements when reading various web pages in Chrome.
• Updated the Keyboard Help and Commands Search descriptions for the INSERT+A keystroke to correctly state that when pressed twice quickly in Chrome or
Firefox, the address of the current web page is displayed in the Virtual Viewer. Note that you can press ALT+D in all browsers to move focus to the address
bar to enter a website address.
• If you encounter an element on a web page with a defined ARIA controls relationship, JAWS will no longer say "use JAWSKEY+ALT+M to move to controlled
element" by default. In most cases, the target of the controls relationship is adjacent to the element or does not provide any useful information.
• When domain-specific scripts such as Google Docs are loaded and INSERT+Q is pressed twice quickly to display information in the Virtual Viewer, resolved
a reported issue where the wrong configuration information was displayed.
• If focus is in a web dialog box in Chrome and you perform an action that opens a second dialog box, resolved an issue where focus was not automatically
placed into the new dialog box.
• Resolved an issue introduced with a change in the April Update, where group names in the Windows Start menu and Windows Explorer were not being shown
correctly in braille.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.9.0.
• Addressed a reported issue in Thunderbird 60 where JAWS was skipping text in some messages.
• Added a new Dictionary entry for "S M E) without the spaces so that JAWS and Fusion will correctly pronounce "Subject Matter Expert."
list end

Except that one never sticks for long
That's why I don't go that route unless I know that this is a "one time review," which I have very seldom found to be the case in real life.   It's far better to use Excel's own features to embed information about a set of column titles (using the RowTitle feature - because it is a row of titles for columns) or row titles (using the ColumnTitle feature - because it is a column of titles for each respective row).

Doing it using Excel's features also ensures that if you are setting up, say, a monthly worksheet that you then want to duplicate 12 times in the same workbook, that you only need to do the setup once and those formatting options will carry over to each month's copy, provided you set the scope of the titles to the worksheet, not the workbook as a whole.

It's somewhat more tedious at the outset, but so much less time consuming over the long run.

Hi Jessica. It sounds like the protected view may be turned on. You may want to see if that is the issue by going into your Excel options menu by pressing Alt plus the letter F followed by the letter T. Then move to the category that says trust center. Once you have located this category, use the tab key until you find an option that says Trust Center Settings. Press the space bar to activate the button.
You will land in another list of categories. Use the arrow keys to locate the protected view option. Then tab over and uncheck the three boxes there if they are checked. Once you have done this, tab to OK, and press Ok to get out of the options menu. I would then restart Excel and see if your spreadsheet works correctly. Hope this helps.

Hi Jessica,

You need to be using the desktop version of Office 365 and not the web version.  I am pretty sure this is the problem because I recently had students with this problem of arrowing around in Excel and hearing nothing. And when I called Freedom Scientific, this is what they said the problem was and when we downloaded the desktop version, it fixed the problem.

Regards,
David

moderated Re: Lost command to bring up the Emoji panel?

 

Yes, but which version of Windows 10, there is no issue if you are still on 1809, it is after installing 1903 where Jaws doesn’t announce the opening of the emoji panel.

I have confirmed this with several people on the Jaws Beta list and filed a bug report about it today. It’s not that big of a deal and I’m sure it can be fixed without too much trouble.

Hi Peter,

 

You didn’t say which screenreader you use, but if you use Jaws then for me also Jaws says nothing about the emoji panel opening, but it opens nonetheless and if I press right arrow or down arrow Jaws will announce whichever emoji you might be on.

I am on the Jaws Beta list and I will file a bug report, I also feel Jaws should say “Emoji Panel” or something like this to indicate it is open.

Brian, there seems to be very little delay for me, I will have to ask a sighted person to watch, but if I press Windows + Period and immediately press enter as fast as I can the 😊emoji is already inserted.

Interestingly enough just now Jaws is telling me “Emoji panel is closed” when I press Windows + Period, but when I arrow around I hear emojis and I can insert them by pressing enter. There is obviously something strange going on how Jaws gets information there, but like I said, I’ll file a bug report.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

It can be slow to appear after the keyboard shortcut is issued.  And that's even when there's not a screen reader involved.  I have no idea why this is.

Except that one never sticks for long whereas the other one, if done correctly, gets saved with your workbook and even if I were to email the file to somebody else who used Jaws they column and row headers would read for them.

Hello
Get to the first cell of your first column Press insert the 0 on numpad with numlock off, and control with your right hand, with the left hand press alt and R you should hear “setting row headers”. Then press insert control with right hand and with left hand press alt and the letter C. You should head “setting Column headers” it is a 4 key press for each .

Using latest Jaws 2019 and windows 10. When I hit windows key period jaws announces “emoji panel is open. Then left and right, up and down arrows and the different emojis are spoken.

Hi Peter,

 

You didn’t say which screenreader you use, but if you use Jaws then for me also Jaws says nothing about the emoji panel opening, but it opens nonetheless and if I press right arrow or down arrow Jaws will announce whichever emoji you might be on.

I am on the Jaws Beta list and I will file a bug report, I also feel Jaws should say “Emoji Panel” or something like this to indicate it is open.

Brian, there seems to be very little delay for me, I will have to ask a sighted person to watch, but if I press Windows + Period and immediately press enter as fast as I can the 😊emoji is already inserted.

Interestingly enough just now Jaws is telling me “Emoji panel is closed” when I press Windows + Period, but when I arrow around I hear emojis and I can insert them by pressing enter. There is obviously something strange going on how Jaws gets information there, but like I said, I’ll file a bug report.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

It can be slow to appear after the keyboard shortcut is issued.  And that's even when there's not a screen reader involved.  I have no idea why this is.

moderated Re: Wat is applications mode?

Mike B
 


Hi Tim,
 
Here's another explanation:
From: Page, Aaron
Application Mode is a mode that JAWS will enter when it begins to interact with a web application. Application Mode is designed to treat the web application as if it were a typical Windows-based program, and not as a web page. The advantage to this is that application-specific keyboard shortcuts will work without the need to use the JAWS pass-through, the disadvantage is that typical JAWS keyboard shortcuts (i.e. "H" for headings, "B" for buttons) will not work as these keystrokes are now being passed through JAWS to the application.
 
When using web applications that trigger JAWS' Application Mode, it is usually very helpful to learn keyboard shortcuts that are specific to the application in order to effectively navigate and use the application. You should also have some success (if the application is accessible) navigating the web application using tab and the arrow keys.
 
You can usually tell that you are entering an application as JAWS will announce "Application", and upon pressing Enter you should hear JAWS beep as if it just entered a form. The most frustrating thing about application mode (in my opinion) is the difficulty in getting back out of the application. I usually will press Insert+Z to set the Virtual PC Cursor to off, and then press Insert+Z again to turn the Virtual PC Cursor back on. After turning off and back on the Virtual PC Cursor you should again be able to use normal JAWS keyboard shortcuts. If anyone on-list knows a better way to exit applications mode, I would love to hear it.    
 
You can practice using applications mode  on this page: https://www.tinymce.com/. If you press "R" to move through the regions you will encounter the application region, at which point you can press Enter to enter applications mode and begin interacting with the application. This example is an HTML text editor called TinyMCE, which is a commonly used editor that uses an application region and is relatively accessible.    
 
Hope this helps!

Thank you!  When would I want applications mode?  I am probably not missing it, and bring it up only because JAWS put me there and I did not know how to escape!

Hi Tim,

Application mode is when you are in a edit field or another type of
application. If you double tap the PC cursor twice rapidly it will pop
you out of it and back into your regular functions. If you need to go
back into the application mode hit enter on the field.

Can someone solve this mystery for me?
