Sorry, you are right.

Here is what the Microsoft site says:

On a keyboard, press the Windows logo key + Enter.

This will both start and stop narrator.

 

The control key was added in Windows 10.

Control+Windows-key+Enter.

That is the toggle for Narrator, whether you start it from the edit box or if you start and stop it with that keystroke.

To start Narrator in the current session of Windows 7 but, not have it start each time Windows 7 starts, Tap either WINDOWS KEY, type "narrator" (without the quotes), then press ENTER.

Bill,

 

Thank you for the info.  Narrator came on but it didn’t help.  When I pressed tab, narrator would say tab and when I pressed up or down arrow it would say up arrow or down arrow.  Jaws won’t speak on that computer and I thought narrator might help me figure out why.  That computer has Windows 7 and Jaws 16.  I guess I’ll have to wait until I have sighted help available to tell me what’s on the screen and get Jaws speaking.

Here's how you can put a shortcut icon on your desktop and you could then assign a keystroke to it.

From: chris judge

You don’t really need an icon for narrator on your desktop, as control windows enter will both stop and start narrator. If you still want to place an icon, here’s how.

To place an icon for narrator on your desktop, do the following.

Press windows R and type:

Shell:appsfolder

Press enter. Find narrator in the list of applications. Press the applications key, or shift f10. Arrow down to open file location and press enter. Press the applications key again and arrow down to send to, sub menu. Press right arrow to open it and arrow down to, desktop create shortcut and press enter.

This will do it.

As for Java programming, Eclipse and Android studio seems to be the best so far.

Hi Robin,
 
It sounds like the ribbons are minimized.  Try the following:
To navigate ribbons more efficiently the ribbons need to be maximized.  The keystroke is, control + F1.  This keystroke is a toggle so, this keystroke
will maximize & minimize the ribbons.
 
To check if the ribbons are minimized / maximized do the following:
1. Press the, Alt key, to open the ribbons.
2. Open the context menu with either the application key or, shift + F10.
3. Arrow up or down to the, Minimize, option.  If, Minimize, is checked, the ribbons are minimized, pressing, enter, on this checkbox, will uncheck it
&close the context menu, & your menues will now be maximized.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Not sure if it's related, but I recently noticed that I'm having a weird bug with the Outlook ribbon on my home computer.  I wasn't sure if it started after a recent upgrade to Office 2016 or to JAWS.  In my case, pressing alt to go to the ribbon tabs where I should be able to left and right arrow across the various tab options no longer works right. When I press Alt, it immediately jumps to the lower ribbon.  I cannot seem to get focus to the upper ribbon. To get to the view ribbon, I have to press alt V.  I'm not seeing that here on my work computer, but I'm also likely on a slightly different version of Outlook and still on JAWS 2019 here.  I'll have to turn off JAWS and see if the issue persist with Narrator.

I've noticed the following while using 2020 and the menus.
For example.
I just tried to do a alt v to go to the views menu to go down to click on conversation and to delete by subject.
As soon as I try to route pc to jaws to see the options in the view menu it goes out of the menu mode and back to the list of messages.
Yes, I'm still using WLM for my mail package.
Any thoughts on how to fix this would be deeply appreciated it.

moderated Is this the best email list?

Mike Terry
 

Hello All,

Years ago there was a specific email list for blind programmers. Does
anyone know if there is an active list for such topics? I am a blind
developer and am looking to move to a new programming language.
However, the only accessible Windows IDE I have found is Visual
Studio. Is the only choice today? I considering learning either C#
or Java. In the case of C# the obvious IDE is Visual Studio.
However, what are blind Java developers using?

I apologize if this is off topic. Just looking for accessible IDE's with Jaws.

Thanks Mike

Van Lant, Robin
 

Not sure if it's related, but I recently noticed that I'm having a weird bug with the Outlook ribbon on my home computer. I wasn't sure if it started after a recent upgrade to Office 2016 or to JAWS. In my case, pressing alt to go to the ribbon tabs where I should be able to left and right arrow across the various tab options no longer works right. When I press Alt, it immediately jumps to the lower ribbon. I cannot seem to get focus to the upper ribbon. To get to the view ribbon, I have to press alt V. I'm not seeing that here on my work computer, but I'm also likely on a slightly different version of Outlook and still on JAWS 2019 here. I'll have to turn off JAWS and see if the issue persist with Narrator.

I'm just not having any luck.  If I put focus on a tweet that I know has replies and hit alt-windows-right arrow, nothing seems to happen.

moderated Re: Convenient OCR not loading

Blackwell, Clifford
 

Thank you for this suggestion.  I spent some time with JAWS tech support trying different options.  What eventually worked was deleting the JAWS 2020 version I had installed and then installed the off line version.  That restored my missing OCR components.

Hi,

try this…

go to adobe reader program, edit menu and arrow down to prefrences  and press enter. Now press the S key until you find security (enhanced) and press the tab key once. focus will now be on “Enable Protected Mode at startup” This setting should be unchecked. Press the space bar key to check or uncheck. Now press the tab key to move focus to ok button and press enter. Close Adobe reader and try to open the file you want to work with. Hope this helps.

I’m trying to read a .PDF document but JAWS tells me OCR isn’t loaded.  I’m using J2020, Windows 7 and have Adobe DC on the computer.  This worked fine in J2019..  I’ve done a repair and get the same result.  How do I get this loaded or working?

 

Thanks.


moderated Re: JAWS not reading Windows VISTA Start Menu

Samuel Villa <Saleena81@...>
 

To answer your first thought, ALT+ENTER on any part of the Windows Taskbar will open the taskbar properties. One of the tabs on that dialog box is a tab for start menu properties. On your second question, yes. Pressing ENTER on the All Programs on the start menu does activate the submenu.

Howdy Samuel,

 

Well, that could very possibly be the way 2 different screen reading programs read / report the same thing.  Your issue might be in the Start Menu properties and the way the Start Menu is assigned to display.  I've never used Vista so I don't have any idea on how to access your Start Menu properties.  Also, have you tried pressing enter to see if that'll expand the menu?

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Then it may be a problem on my part. Because NVDA sause “All Programs Button” instead of “all programs submenu.”

I've never tabbed in the start menu.

When it says menu closed or submenu, you right arrow to open it up.

NVDA reads most of the start menu. But when I TAB to the All Programs Submenu, NVDA reads it as “All programs button.” What do I do?

You might give it a try with NVDA, that will tell you if it is Jaws or Windows.

Hi group.

I am using JAWS 16.0.4350 on a 32-bit Windows VISTA system.

When I open the Windows VISTA start menu, JAWS doesn’t read anything. Is there a work around for this issue? Thanks for your help in advance.
