Hi,

I went to the website, went to apply to any job and when the screen came up that cannot be used, I went to the touch cursor. How do I navigate to the fields to enter information and then to upload my resume etc.?? the arrow keys mentioned did nothing by hitting right or left arrow key...

Thanks,

Rick

If the PC and Jaws cursors fail this is the new cursor to try and keep up with the current tech.

The Touch cursor is activated by pressing shift and the plus key on the numpad at the same time. This cursor is required more and more. Now use the left and right arrow keys to navigate like swiping left and right on a IPhone. use space bar or enter to activate items.On 7/22/2019 1:06 PM, Rick Mladek wrote:

I only am hearing the page I am on and arrowing or tabbing does nothing to move to these points as mentioned. Even hitting the letter e to go to an edit field is not working.

No guarantee that the touch cursor  will work. as for navigating with the touch cursor you need to use the 4 pack of arrows not the number pad arrows. You should hear a tone with each key press if there isn't anything under the cursor and a description if there is something there.

moderated Leaving a review on Home Advisor

The Iowa Gal <iowagal728@...>
 

Hi group,

If anyone has successfully completed the form on Home Advisor to review a pro, I'd love to know how you did it. I'm using latest Jaws on Win 10 with I.E., Firefox, Chrome and Brave. Using the touch cursor with Jaws and I.E. seemed ok, but I'm having difficulty moving around the form fields.
Alternatively, if anyone has used the Android app to complete the review process, please let me know, as I can go that way, as well.

Thanks, Norma

The extension cable is to cut down on the interference from the PC tower. You may be surprised how much better it works if you use the cable and place the receiver a couple of feet away from all the electronics.

Hi,

 

I thought it would be OK to post a brief review here on the Logitech G613 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard since just as myself I assume others also are always looking for the “perfect” keyboard.

This Logitech G613 “Lightspeed” wireless mechanical gaming keyboard can connect to iOS via Bluetooth and to a PC using the supplied USB receiver which then let’s you take advantage of the “Lightspeed” 1 millisecond delay which is pretty impressive (if you connect to a PC with Bluetooth this does not apply and while it’s probably still just as good as any other Bluetooth keyboard, it sort of makes sense to make the most of this keyboard’s features).

I still use my trusty Logitech K780 at home where I have it connected to my laptop via Bluetooth as well as to my iPhone and Apple TV, but I bought the G613 for my main PC at work and I must say so far it’s getting pretty close to that perfect score.

Unlike most wired mechanical gaming keyboards this does not have all the fancy RGB lighting options which of course is fine for me. The one thing I am not super fond of are the 6 F1 through fF6 function keys in a vertical column down the left side of the keyboard with maybe half an inch of space between them and the left most keys like Control, Shift, Caps Lock, Tab, ` and Escape. But I also bought a wired Logitech mechanical keyboard and it also has them, most mechanical keyboards are designed for gamers rather than people who want a mechanical keyboard for typing. It takes a bit of getting used to not accidently pressing them. gamers can configure these keys as macro keys to perform whatever actions gamers want.

Apart from that the keyboard has a very traditional layout with nice spaces between the blocks of function keys, the inverted cursor T, the 6-pack with Insert/Delete, Page Up/Down and Home/End, of course the number pad and above that it has 4 more slightly lower media keys for Play/Pause, Stop, Rewind and Forward.

At the very top is a slider switch which locks the Windows key which apparently gamers like so they don’t accidently press it and Cortana/the search box pops up, then there are two buttons which switch between the USB Lightspeed connection and the Bluetooth connection and once the Bluetooth connection to the iPhone has been established all it takes is to press the Bluetooth button in order to switch to the phone and the USB button to switch back.

On the very top right is a large key which is a volume rocker, press the left side for down and the right side for up and beside that is a Mute button. Finally on the right side towards the back is a on/off slider switch.

The keyboard runs on 2 AA batteries and is supposed to give you 18 month of battery life.

There is a proper application key on the right side of the spacebar which works, but there is no Windows key on the right side which is something you don’t hardly see any more.

 

Logitech uses their own Romer-G switches and not Cherry MXswitches. The Romer-G are most like Cherry Brown, a nice distance of travel, but not hard to press and relatively quiet for mechanical keys.

They do take a bit of getting used to, but I quite like them. For those who want to read more about them, below is a link to a review from Tom’s Hardware:

 

Logitech’s Romer-G Switches – Are they any good?

 

The other nice thing about this keyboard is it’s relatively reasonable price, I paid $129.99 Canadian for it, believe I read that on a good deal you can pick it up in the US for as low as $70 US.

Wireless mechanical keyboards are not out there too much yet, I did find a couple more made by the company “Das Keyboard” but they are more expensive although I may order them from Amazon to test and if I don’t like them at least as much or better send them back. My other 2 computers at my store where I have a Logitech MK510 keyboard and mouse combo both start to show their wear on the keyboards and I want to see if using mechanical keyboards won’t change the fact that many of the keyboards which are mostly out there these days are typically done after 2 or at most 3 years of heavy use.

As with all mechanical keyboards keep in mind that the Logitech G613 is heavy compared to other non-mechanical wireless keyboards.

And one last thing which is nice, this keyboard has function keys which work as function keys out of the box and as much as I also like my K780, it’s a bit of a pain to have to install the not very accessible Logitech Options software just so you can change the function keys to behave like function keys instead of media keys.

 

 

Happy typing,

Sieghard

I only am hearing the page I am on and arrowing or tabing does nothing to move to these points as mentioned. Even hitting the letter e to go to an edit field is not working.

Any help surely appreciated.

Hi,

I am also having this problem, but i'm not sure if it is due to the latest version of Jaws. It also happens with Narrator and NVDA.

I also can't seem to create a shortcut hotkey or at least not the one I want to create. For instance, pressing Alt+Enter to get in to a shortcut properties, then tabbing to the Hotkey field, and when I enter the Hotkey sequence of
alt+Shift+Control+f, then Apply it and press Ok. I go back to check and the Hotkey has not been created at all.

I wonder if it is some kind of weird annoying Windows 10 Home security issue that is causing all these problems?
I am running latest version of Windows 10 Home.

you only need to press the last key in that field.  The alt + ctrl are the default and cant be changed so just pressing F for example will be alt + ctrl + F

Yes, very annoying, Google has started using the alert center to push ads if you have Chrome installed.

Go to settings center then notifications and turn off anything you don't want to hear about.

However, these phantom notifications have always been advertisements for Windows of some form or other, never anything important. But they do show up.

I’m running the May update on JAWS here on Windows 10.  At home I up running the latest JAWS on Windows 10 and have noticed that my Internet Explorer shortcut wasn’t working , but hadn’t really looked into it.  I’ll go run some testing on it tonight. I cannot recall if my other shortcuts are working, largely because those programs just sit open.

moderated Re: can jaws read page numbers using adobe acrobat reader DC?

David Kingsbury
 

Hello,

 

You can read page numbers in two ways. Control Shift N is the Go To command for JAWS with Acrobat Reader. Hit this and you can hear the current page number as well as use it to navigate to other pages.

 

You can also bring up the status bar by first hitting Insert F4, and then hitting Inserrt Page Down. JAWS will say something like 1/8, indicating that you are on the first of a total of 8 pages. It is only necessary to hit Insert F4 the first time in a given session. Inserrt Page Down by itself will work for accessing it subsequent times during that session.

 

Regards,

David
