Howdy All,
 
I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.
 
1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.
 
2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.
 
3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close preferences.
Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.
If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Hi Siegard.

Open Jaws Settings Centre with Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, make
sure default settings are loaded by pressing Control + Shift + D, then
type "access" in the search box. Tab once and you should have 3 search
results, one of them is the following:
Start menu: Access Out-of-Process not checked
Check that and tab to OK and save the new setting, then try the start menu.
I'm running thee latest update and don't see this option anywhere in settings. Might it only be in the beta you're testing?

Hi Bill, I found it within the menu bar under options. I had been going through the options under the file tab to no avail and even the message tab on the menu bar. Finally, enough arrowing this way and that found what I was needing. All within my future messages with this now checked.

Hi, Rick.

To Reveal Or Hide BCC field While Composing A Message

The BCC field is not visible by default. Press Alt + P, followed by B while in a new message. This is a toggle to the Options BCC field and will either show or hide the BCC field depending on its state when the keyboard command is pressed. You will not be able to do this unless you are already in a new email message which you are composing.

I’m not sure getting Nvidia helps all that much, considering that I have an Nvidia card here and there is still a lot of JAWS weirdness, but NVDA reads fine. I get quite a few crashes when the computer is idle, but not sleeping, as this is a desktop and I have  turned off all power management. I’ve frequently  come back from being away from the keyboard to find that JAWS has taken out the keyboard and the braille display with it. Not sure if this is a graphics card issue, but I’d be willing to investigate. I checked to make sure I had all the latest updates, but I didn’t see anything newer than what I have, as  the drivers from Nvidia for this card appear to be the same as the drivers that I could find on Windows update. I’ve also noticed a few things in universal apps not reading correctly, as you say, and I’ve unchecked the “use accessibility driver” option in the settings center, but it made no difference.

Best way to interact with these notifications is with the keystroke, WINDOWS Key plus SHIFT plus V.

If That doesn't work, bring up the Action Center with WINDOWS Key plus A and look through your notifications there.

Hi, Steve. That's because you only have notification persistence set to
five seconds. If you want the notifications to persist longer,

1. Open Control Panel.
2. Open Ease of Access.
3. Open Use the Computer Without a Display.
4. Change the setting which reads,
How long should Windows notification dialog boxes stay open?
Set it to a longer period of time.
5. TAB to the Apply button, and press ENTER.
6. TAB to the OK button and press ENTER.

Now these notifications will stay open longer, so you can get to them,

So, I only got these a couple of years ago on my Windows 10 box. Seems I downloaded the versions provided on Brian Smart's site. But, I'm not really sure that much was done with them. I think they're the most recent versions by Kitchen himself. Maybe the menu programme is new, and they are voiced by Microsoft David, in my case, but it's probably the Sapi voice that was also available in Windows 7.
So, while I???m not 100% certain/wouldn't bank a ton of money on it, I'm willing to suppose that if you have something that works in Windows 7, you should be able to get it to work with 10 also. Windows is pretty downward compatible in general. I know some people have had trouble with games using directx, but even then, a little searching on the internet will usually provide all the components you need.

The games are all right; not too stimulating to me for the most part, but the baseball game is ... oddly relaxing.

As I have mentioned before, there is a presumption at work here that these are indeed Microsoft notifications that may not be correct.

There are all sorts of notifications that can be popped up by a web browser.  Since I don't use a screen reader on a constant basis I do not know how they all might be announced, but I would have to believe that the screen reader would make their presence known.

There is a limit to the number of terms that screen reader software is going to use for a basic notification, and my suspicion is that there may be a browser push notification involved here, but I have no way to prove it.

This will happen again the moment you do receive a valid notification. This is a bug I have noticed, the first day I updated to Windows 10, 1809. It happens when you dismiss a valid notification, but the notification screen will not close, and a sighted friend told me it is a blank screen.

Randy,

 

I now truly believe my pc has gremlins hidden within.

 

Yesterday, while at work and on this desk top pc running windows 10 and jaws 2019. I could be closing any Microsoft application, including internet explorer, outlook, word and ExCell, when I would close the program, I would hear “new notification”. I could not find any notification with either cursor, jaws/pc/touch cursors.

 

Today, I turn on my pc and have forgotten about this, opening and closing various programs previously mentioned. Until I find your message here in Outlook, I had forgotten about this issue experienced all day yesterday. I began opening and closing these various troubled programs and nothing. No more “new notification” alerts.

 

So, the gremlins are sleeping in obvously and the problem has mysteriously moved on.

 

Thanks for the note and if this returns, I’ll be back hoping to find a resolution.

Does the computer have an Intel Graphic card?

I’ve recently found out that Intel graphics sits over the processor and can disrupt the running of other big software like Jaws. I’ve been advised to get a computer with NVIDIA or MDA intel which operates independently from the processor.

It is an HP EliteDesk 800 Mini PC and I have 2 of them, only difference is that one has an I5 CPU (the one where Jaws doesn’t read Settings etc.) and the other has an I7 CPU. Both of them are sixth generation and the specs otherwise are identical. Software is very much the same and Jaws first read everything fine when I installed Windows 10 Professional on these last year in April. These systems still came with Windows 7 at the time (a Windows 10 license downgraded to Windows 7) and I did a completely new install of Windows 10 from USB media, e.g. deleted all partitions, created new partitions and formatted the SSD drives, then installed Windows 10, afterwards I installed all my applications and Jaws. Both systems run Office via Office 365 download, my Microsoft point of sale software (they are both computers used in my retail store) and I have dealt with Jaws elevated support on this last year with no success. The computer where this is happening is our main register and I don’t use it all that much since it is mostly my sighted staff using it and I have simply put up with it for now using Narrator if I need to do anything in Settings. It would be too much work for me at this point to wipe this system clean and reinstall Windows on it, it has a plug-in from my credit card processor installed to connect our point of sale system with their PinPad and all in all it’s just to o disruptive right now to do this.

Hi Sieghard,

Is that computer the same make and model as the others?

Does it run software that other computers of yours don’t run?

Could this be a case where Jaws is clashing with the video or graphics cards?

 

Cheers

Hi Meesha,

 

Yes, unfortunately I have the same issue on one of my work PC’s, I can use any application just fine, but Jaws will not speak in the Windows search box, the start menu, the Settings app, control Panel, Calculator and other Windows applications.

I an on the Jaws beta team and know a few others have also experienced this, but it seems to be rare and an illusive issue to fix, for me this started over a year ago on this one PC and so far no Windows update, Jaws update, Windows repair or Jaws repair/reinstallation has fixed it. I am convinced that unfortunately the only way to fix this would be to reinstall Windows absolutely fresh and from scratch.

I am running the current Beta version of Jaws, but I think the June update already included an alternative way to display the start menu and for me Jaws now reads the start menu on this machine, but still not the Settings app, Windows search box or Calculator.

Open Jaws Settings Centre with Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, make sure default settings are loaded by pressing Control + Shift + D, then type “access” in the search box. Tab once and you should have 3 search results, one of them is the following:

Start menu: Access Out-of-Process not checked

Check that and tab to OK and save the new setting, then try the start menu.

Sorry I can’t provide an actual solution/fix for it, but so far I don’t think there is one except to reinstall Windows 10, then reinstall Jaws, all your applications and put back your data from backup.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

 

In the June update of Jaws

Hello all,

I have recently joined this group and find the information shared very informative.

Hope someone can help me with the below query…

I am trying to install JAWS 19 in my laptop with Windows home”  basic after uninstalling JAWS 2018. The problem is JAWS is silent on various items on the PC like – on the start menu, it only speaks “Cortana” and nothing else. Then it is silent when I open system settings folder or open the option to connect to a network.

I have already performed the full recovery couple of times however the problem persists.

Has anybody faced a similar issue? I would really appreciate any insights to resolve this.

Many thanks

Meesha Arora
