Have you worked with any of this? This is not available on my version ovbiously. I hate the need to arrow through channels and not having numbers to simply hit to go to a specific channel... bad design of this remote...

Speech recognition is talking to a device, like Amazon Echo.
TTS is text to speech, like Jaws and other screenreaders.
Phones use both TTS and speech recognition.

Otherwise, it typically uses software TTS via Android or Linux.

I have two roku devices and most apps can be navigated using the audio guide, but halmark for one cannot and this is true with any of the devices such as ios and android and even the fire tv units.

Firestick has TTS. It's under settings accessibility

I seriously doubt anyone uses embedded speech chips unless it is something

Otherwise, it typically uses software TTS via Android or Linux.

Reading cell contents of merged cells can be fixed in JAWS for Windows Quick Settings.

1. Open the Worksheet with the merged cells
2. Open JAWS for Windows Quick Settings JAWS KEY-V
3. Insert "Cell Verbosity" without the quotes into the edit field
4. Press DOWN ARROW until focus is on "Cell Verbosity"
5. Press SPACEBAR to toggle the setting to "Content Only"
6. Navigate to and activate the OK button

When you navigate to merged cells, you should now hear only the content. You can switch it back at any time to hear cell coordinates.

I know it says Cell Coordinates and Contents but sometimes the contents don't read and you need to switch it up.

If you have other questions, please feel free to contact me. I'll do my best to help.

I’m sure there is a key combination to activate drag and drop if you are using the laptop keyboard layout, but I never have used it so you have to figure that one out. I assume you can probably find it in the Jaws help menu under keyboard shortcuts.

Alternatively, you could always bring up command search, type drag into the edit field and tab once where Drag and Drop is the first choice and you can activate it that way.

Hi Sieghard, 

 

He is taking a computer class where part of the curriculum apparently involves learning drag and drop. I agree copy or cut and paste is the way to go.  I shared this with A person with DSS.  The point being can he take a loose file and put it in a folder as an example?  A person with vision has several ways to try to accomplish this, but a screen reader less ways, but still effective.  My concern is the cut and paste way will be counted incorrect since. He didn’t drag and drop. 

 

Thanks again for your help and thoughtful response.

You would have to try if it works, I had a survey like that once and there were buttons which allowed you to move items up and down the list. This would maybe be more of a function of how the survey/website is coded and whether it was made accessible.

If you simply want to move files from one folder to another, just open the folder with the files, go to the one you want or select multiple files which are next to each other by holding down shift and using the arrow keys, then press Control + X to cut, go to the other folder and press Control + V to paste.

If you have multiple files and they are not next to each other go to the first one, then hold down the control key and arrow down (best to use list view or details view so all the files are in a vertical list), then whenever you get to a file you want to select press the spacebar without letting go of the control key, then arrow down again to the next file. When done repeat the above, control + x to cut and control + v in the other folder to paste.

Drag and drop works on the Windows 10 taskbar very nicely if you want to change the order the icons there are in, but it does not work in all situations where maybe a sighted person can drag and drop with the mouse, but in most cases other keyboard shortcuts like cut and paste will do just the same.

Speech recognition is talking to a device, like Amazon Echo.
TTS is text to speech, like Jaws and other screenreaders.
Phones use both TTS and speech recognition.

I don't know the names but they are around. Just look at any smart TV
like Samsung. Or The Amazon Fire stick, Roku and Apple TV's. They
must use embedded TTS chips.

The Access 32 is a 32bit software version of DeckTalk. The link I
gave proposed to have it. I am happy wi9th my synth or I would look
into it further.

I don't think it's available any more.

moderated Outlook and JAWS feature to inform if a person is included in cc field JAWS2020

Shai
 

Hello,
Using Outlook2016 retail version and JAWS2020, is there a feature that
I can set up to inform me when a person is in the cc field? I know
that I can press control plus 2 to check this, but I am actually
looking for JAWS to inform me of this automatically.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Hi,

 

Go to System Access on the desktop, press Alt+Enter to get into Properties, and set the Hotkey to None.  This will solve it.

 

All the best

Subject: Big problem with Outlook keyboard shortcut

 

I am trying to change how often Outlook receives messages; the shortcut for this is alt Control S. When I do this, System Access kicks in and just starts or restarts it. This happens even when the home server is turned off and using another screen reader. Is there a menu/submenu I can use to do this?

 

Thanks,

 

Nance

Try Insert 3 on the number pad.

When I press insert plus the 3, it says""pass key through."

I'm using Jaws 2020, windows ten and Outlook 2016.

That keystroke works for me, but when it doesn’t it usually is because Outlook is displaying some message somewhere which you may or may not be able to get to with Jaws to dismiss it.

I used to be able to press JAWS key plus 3 on the number pad & it would tell me how many email messages I have.  I use Outlook 2016, Windows 10 & JAWS 2018.  How do I get this to work again?

 

Thank you.
