While JAWS is in the silent mode you describe, how do you invoke a JAWS
reading command, I assume something like JAWS key + down arrow? I tried it
just now but no JAWS speech at all.

Perhaps speech on demand, where JAWS only speaks when you actively
press a read command. Invoke it with insert+spacebar, then
s. Return to full speech with the same keystroke.

When in a Zoom meeting, Jaws lets me know as things are happening in

This is great information to have; but I often don't need it when
attending or participating in a meeting, since I'm typically not the
main meeting organizer.

I suppose I could mute my audio via Alt A, but then people won't be
able to hear me.

I also could turn Jaws off, but that seems a bit extreme.

Any suggestions for dealing with unwanted Jaws speech during a Zoom

From time to time my sound card will begin to crackle.  Dumping and re starting JAWS fixes the issue.  I have never traced what causes the problem and as it is intermittent it is hard to determine .  I am using Win 10 ,latest version, and latest release of JAWS on an HP with dedicated video memory and 16gb of memory. 

No solution I know rather just a note that I have seen the issue and a JAWS re start takes care of it.

You can go to chrome settings, advanced, downloads, and activate that toggle that says "ask where to save each download" or something, if you want a prompt.
Ctrl-j will also take you to your downloads "library".

My experience with Chrome is that when I click on a download link, the file is downloaded without any confirmation. The way to find out if it's arrived in your system is to press shift-F6. If it's there, JAWS will speak its name. Assuming your default is your downloads folder, you can also navigate to that folder and confirm.

Robin answered your other question. I'd add that control-F4 closes an individual window for me.

Good morning group,

I am using Chrome on a Windows 10 machine with JAWS 2020 and I am having trouble with the following tasks which I had no problem completing using Firefox (which has gone completely flaky on my laptop).
Opening a file on a web page. In Firefox I could click a file link and I would be given the option to open or save the file. Chrome does not give me this option. According to web searches using CTRL+Enter and/or SHIFT+Enter should do the trick. Neither option works for me.

Closing a window and/or going back to the previous window. In Firefox I could use the File, Close Window to complete this task. As an example after performing a Google search I click on a result and after reading it I want to go back to the results page. Web searches have not turned up any viable solutions.

Hi.

The back button should work the same in firefox and chrome. Use alt-left arrow if you are in the same window. Not positive but I think there is a way in preferences to force everything to open in the same window or tab. Maybe look around for that.
Regarding Firefox, I was having a lot of problems with it this week. I don't know exactly what happened. It has two or three times now gone screwy before an update, which is very strange. Sometimes an update fixes the problem ... it did until recently, but yesterday I ended up refreshing the browser *again*, after having already done so before the update to no avail. Now firefox is good and snappy again using the latest update and an oldie JFW 2018. So maybe make sure you are up to date and, if you are still experiencing firefox flakiness, try a refresh -- you'll have to re-install your extensions though. The only one I had was uBlock origin -- jury's out on whether uBlock was actaully causing some of the issues I was having.

moderated Re: Window coming up alongside UAC dialogue

JM Casey
 

Well, I wouldn’t. There are a few levels of uAC; I wouldn’t just say yes to whatever it asks, it’s good that it lets you know what programmes are attempting to do admin tasks and I’m certainly glad (after having disabled it for a time myself) that extra layer of security is there. User discretion is a good thing.

 

The 33% setting doesn’t seem to work with jAWS or nVDA in the sense that you can’t read what app is attempting to gain access. Weird. I have mine set to 66% (I think it is) and the difference isnt’ appreciable, and now I can read the uAC screen properly. Not sure about the “secure uap” window the OP mentions – have you tried a google search to see what this might be?

A couple ideas,
When doing a Google Search, if the site you visit opens in a new window or tab, you can use Control W to close that window and go back to your results page. If the site appears in the same tab as your results, Alt left arrow will take you back a page.

I'm not sure about the file opening, as I do let them download first, but you might trying using the content menu on the link and select Save As.

Tab goes through all form elements including buttons, edit boxes, combo boxes, etc.  If you know you are looking for links, it’s nice to just move through that type of element.   I use the Links list box a whole lots more, too, so that I can use first letter navigation to get to a particular link, but it’s nice to have options.

Can somebody tell me how having a quick nav key for Any Link differs from using tab?

I am an old Window-Eyes user, so I dumped the List hot key, which was l and made it the any link key.

I seldom if ever want to jump to the next list…

 

Its really up to your own preference.

Hi Luke,

 

Press, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws manager and navigate to, Navigate Quick Keys, and press enter.  In here is where you can either add or change your key assignments.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi! My first post here I have dabbled with JAWS before in which it seems a long time ago. Most of that previous info is gone. I have been a NVDA user for the last while. I’m taking advantage of the  free download of JAWS so I can learn a second screenreader. I found it a little frustrating that if I wanted to skip through just links I potentially had to use 2 different buttons. I’m talking about the unvisited and visited buttons. So I did some googling and yay! I came across info about the anylink option.  I am thinking I am going to make the anylink key the K button  and move the place marker key to the J button but, what should I do with the jump to line command which is J at the moment? It seems all the letter navigation keys are taken. I could be wrong about that though. I don’t have any plans on using the jump to line feature at the moment so burying it somewhere doesn’t bother me that much. I’m also open To hear in which what navigation key you used for the Anylink key

JAWS has an archived webinar on using MS Teams. It is very helpful.

Hi Sameer,

I'm hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running Windows 10 with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer's recommended tool for remote working.

This app is globally accessible except for defining a "contact group" in the "Chat" tab, "Contacts" subtab.

In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:

<https://support.office.com/en-us/article/basic-tasks-using-a-screen-reader-with-microsoft-teams-538a8741-f21b-4b04-b575-9df70ed4105d#picktab=windows>https://support.office.com/en-us/article/basic-tasks-using-a-screen-reader-with-microsoft-teams-538a8741-f21b-4b04-b575-9df70ed4105d#picktab=windows

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I'd also like to know.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.

Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine.

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards

Ditto.  I had thought that my two sound card setup created the interference and warbled speech but it now seems to have another cause.  Closing and reopening JAWS does the trick.

Hi,

  In addition to what others have written I just want to add my experience.

From time to time my sound card will begin to crackle.  Dumping and re starting JAWS fixes the issue.  I have never traced what causes the problem and as it is intermittent it is hard to determine .  I am using Win 10 ,latest version, and latest release of JAWS on an HP with dedicated video memory and 16gb of memory. 

No solution I know rather just a note that I have seen the issue and a JAWS re start takes care of it.

Hi All,

 

I was just wondering if any of you have ever noticed your sound card device crackle when using speech?  I just got a new Lenovo p52 mobile workstation computer and there is some annoying crackle when speech occurs.  I would appreciate if anyone has any good ideas on how to fix this.

 

Best,
