Hi All

 

I’ve pasted a work-around for the problems we’ve been having until the next JAWS Update.

1. From Edge 79, go to address omnibox and type “edge://flags” (without quotes and EXACTLY AS SHOWN).

2. From experiments edit field, type “UI Automation” and press Tab.

3. From Native UI Automation combo box, choose “disabled” and restart Edge if prompted.

list end

It’s slower but like an old friend Internet explore so often comes through when other browsers don’t. I keep it around and still use it when chrome and others just don’t do the job.

And whoever told you Edge was not compatible with Jaws is not really telling you the truth.

Almost every browser may have little issues, but you can easily use Edge or Chrome, for me Chrome has been my primary browser probably for about 3 years now. My experience with Firefox has always been more flaky which goes to show how subjective this is, but given the market share Google Chrome has and if you add other chromium based browser it’s even more, this is clearly what the majority of people use and from my observations this is no different among the visually impaired community.

It is no longer safe to use IE because it has not been supported for years, and so is vulnerable to hacking and malware attacks.  It is safer to use more modern browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, which are frequently updated and fully supported.

I got the new Edge installed yesterday and overall it seems to work very well.

However, when entering a search term, if you make a mistake and hit the backspace key, it Jaws doesn’t speak the character you deleted, but speaks the first letter.

 

Anyone else finding this?  Is there a fix?

Are you connecting over bluetooth?

Windows is notoriously bad with bluetooth.

Was there a driver that you installed for the Touch?

Did you try rebooting while the Touch is connected via USB?

No, it cannot. Both Logitech software updates and any firmware updates to the keyboard and/or unifying receiver have to be done via the Logitecch Options software.

But it is not a lengthy process and even somebody with basic knowledge can help with it, as long as they know how to use a mouse and click the Update button it’s fine.

I guess you could always call Aira, even if takes more than 5 minutes, as long as you are a Jaws user this should fall within the parameters for their free help with Jaws related things which are not accessible. Even Microsoft Accessibility could and would probably do this.

You will most likely need help with that Logitech Options update.

You can simply open Logitech Options and the update notice should be there, I also had a firmware update for my keyboard and unifying receiver tonight and except for the title “Firmware Update” Jaws read nothing regardless whether I tried the Touch cursor, actually used my laptop’s touch screen or tried the new Jaws scan cursor which did kick in, but it didn’t read anything.

When my wife looked she said it said there was a firmware update and it had an ‘Update” button. She did it for me and all is well now, but you also may need sighted help.

Logitech makes great keyboards, but the accessibility of their software totally sucks.

Hello, everyone.

 

Within the last day or so, whenever I turn on my computer, I get a Logitec pop-up that wants me to install an update of some kind.

 

However, within a few seconds from when Jaws reads the pop-up, the pop-up disappears, and I can’t seem to do anything to get it back.

 

I purchased a Logitec K780 bluetooth key-board a month or two ago, which is why I’m sure I’m getting the pop-up.

 

Has anyone else with Logitec keyboards experienced this issue?  If so, have you figured out a way to deal with this pop-up?

 

Thank you!

Is the communication port set to bluetooth In the jaws settings? To check:
  1.  Go to jaws, options, braille
  2. 2. Choose your braille note and go to modify
  3. 3. Ensure bluetooth is chosen as the communication port
Also try restarting jaws.
