Dear Glenn & List:

Your version of Office must be truly ancient. even Word, Excel & Outlook in Office 2003 had f7 for spell check. There adoptions in the setup screens about doing grammar check etc.

If you buy newer Office, such as 2019, you will notice vast improvements in spell and grammar checkers. Well worth the money.

Hi,
I have an older version of Office, and there are no spell check options in the edit tab, but it may be there in newer versions.
But I'm willing to bet that if you turn on the automatic spell check in Word, it will follow in Excel.
If not, you can use F7 to check the Excel document.

Dear Ann & List:

Yes, to both questions. I believe the manual and such are listed in the Downloads section of the FS web site, near the bottom of the list of downloads.

If you do not find them, call FS at (800) 444-4443 from Canada & us, elsewhere e-mail them.

Norma,

 

That would be great if you could call Vispero about this issue.

 

You’re right, the lag doesn’t only occur when OneDrive is sincing. OneDrive, Outlook and Jaws open together don’t play well at all. Outlook also crashes when I try to search for particular emails. It’s definitely a Jaws issue as it doesn’t occur with NVDA.

 

And the issue definitely involves OneDrive because when I delete OneDrive and go back to Dropbox, Outlook plays beautifully when open with Jaws and Dropbox.

 

I hope this makes sense.

 

Cheers

Zel

Hi Zel,

 

Yes, I use OneDrive for work and do experience the lag when folders are being synchronized. I think, though, that I am having the lag in Outlook even when no synchronization is occurring. I’ll have to double check that, though.

I recall speaking with a MS disability help desk tech and he said it’s not possible to disable the synchronizing and I understand.

Is there a workaround for this? And, again, I can’t help wonder why the lag is worse with J 2020.

I need to take time to call Vispero about this.

Hi David, I hear what you’re saying. I’m gonna have to call tech support and let them hear the lag. Here is the main part of their written response to my inquiry regarding this issue, it doesn’t directly address your issue but might prove insightful. Then again it might not. <smile> Best, Norma

 

In order to remedy some of your lagging problems, it would be best to make sure that the Outlook Reading Pane is turned off. When the Reading Pane is on, it causes a small window to the right bottom of the Inbox to show part of the message being highlighted. This can cause Outlook to noticeably lag when moving between the messages.

If you continue to have problems, it would be best if you would contact our Technical Support Department by telephone at (727) 803-8000 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday at 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM EST.

Hi group,

 

As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:

 

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

 

Helpful feedback welcome.

Norma

I Thank each of you who responded with suggestions. I learned this was something different. Somehow, this was connected with Edge. When I tried using Edge today for the first time since a year ago (when I didn’t like it), I got the “you have a new notification,” just like I got earlier. I didn’t have to do anything to read it—just listen and down arrow. Does this happen much? It was an ad for using Edge.

Hi Tom,

 

If you’re using the latest version of Jaws, sometimes I find it easier to do an OCR scan of the PDF file, and that allows me to read it much more comfortably. If it’s a big file, you have to wait 30 seconds or so but it’s worth it.

 

To do the OCR scan:

 

  1. Press Jaws key with space
  2. Press the letter ‘o’
  3. Press the letter ‘d’ (not similtaniously).

 

The scanning will begin and Jaws should make a clicking noise while it’s scanning.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Listers,

 

I’m running Windows 10 and using JAWS 2020.

 

I haven’t gotten “NOTIFICATIONS” on my screen in a very long time. Now, I keep getting it but forgot how to read it. Can someone help?

 

Thanks.

 

Shirley Tracy

I’m a Jaws user because it's a screen reader that my school provide me and it's also my favorite screen reader of choice. would also suggest NVDA if you want open source screen reader beside Narrator. I The commands like other users has stated, it similar to Jaws.

Hi,

NVDA as well.

I find, contrary to many beliefs, that having a quote on quote arsenal of screen readers is very useful in my daily life, just as the ability to work with multiple web browsers is too.

As previously stated, many of the core functions of NVDA are similar to Jaws – one thing to keep in mind is how NVDA’s screen review works vs. object navigation versus the Jaws cursor and touch cursor.

Definitely N V D A. Just study the key commands, of which some are same as JAWS and some not; very easy.

Hello list members:

 

Since retiring I have been involved in a number of volunteer activities. Recently I had a conversation with a local agency who is looking for a volunteer to assist clients in completing an online registration form as part of an interview process regarding potential receipt of specific services.

I understand that I cannot legally use one of my additional Jaws licenses because I have the Home version. Truth to tell, other than JAWS, I have never really worked with any other screen reader programs. Some years ago, Idid a cursory  review of NVDA. I understand that Narrator has improved in some measurable ways. I know that there are other programs out there.

For purposes of this opportunity, where I would need to load a screen reading program onto a laptop in order to conduct the interviews, I am looking for any recommendations of open-source screen Reader programs.

Any assistance is appreciated.

 

Best,  Justin
