Thank you.  Yes, Windows Explorer, my terminology is very out of date.  My last time using Windows was in 2011 and I was sighted then.  Like I mentioned, I am a complete newbie to Windows again.

If File Explorer is different than Windows Explorer, maybe File Explorer copied the menu choices, property page and so on from Windows Explorer. Couldn't hurt to try.

moderated advanced users: Multiple cursors

Mark
 

I sometimes wonder if all the cursors and system focus in JAWS can be moved to separate spots on the page, as if you had one hand feeling the top of the wall and the other hand feeling a lower part of the wall, each hand gathering information from different places. For example, I noticed you can route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor. But I don't think I have a firm understanding of that. Can intermediate or advanced JAWS users say something about that?

I use an audio mixer from Amazon.  The way it works is, JAWS is set to go through the mixer as is my Bluetooth hearing aids.  This way I hear everything.  The Zoom meetings and everything that can be seen by the host or other participants.  Who has left, who has joined etcetera. I believe the mixer cost $39.95.  No taxes or shipping costs.

Hi Annabelle,
I would run the jaws installer, and you will be given the option to repair, and it is either at that point where the reinstall video intercept is, or that is further into the repair Jaws.
Jaws has a dedicated video intercept utility somewhere in the freedom scientific folder in Program Files or Program files (x86) folder as well, but I don't know the exact name of the file off-hand, but it can be found.

Age has little to do with the software working well or not. Sometimes older software works better than the latest greatest.

I checked it out about a year ago and it worked fine on Windows 10.

The manual is still helpful since they haven’t updated the software either.

You may be surprised how well it works.

Hi, Alison,

try to check your sound settings in the Zoom app.
Most audio settings are set up in such a way that zoom has control over what device is chosen and it sets the volume automatically to avoid feedback from people's speakers.
I cannot tell you the exact wording since my Zoom is in German, but I'm sure others can chime in here.
Also, you may want to set up your speaer and microphone in such a way that the app will use the same devices as your Windows does per default. That can also be done in settings.
Finally, meeting hosts have the possibility of setting up "original sound" and "Stereo" so that anyone can change their audio and turn off all the aggressive sound pre-processing Zoom performs on incoming audio.
However, this has to be done online through the web interface.

Hope that helps,
Nermin

It also has a round button where you can control your volume and whether it's muted or not. They don't make them anymore, otherwise I'd highly recommend them.

Hi,
I had the same problem you described. Tried changing the setting in Zoom without speech was not possible but I'll try it again later today and see if I can do it with Narrator to see if it fixes the problem.

I'm guessing that it must be a problem with the frequency/channel the blutooth and the computers blutooth card/adapter are not communicating with each other.

This may be also a message to Aftershokz to see what they say.

Hello,
When I open zoom and have my aftershocks bluetooth headphones connected, I discover that I lose JAWS speech. I am using the latest version of JAWS2020. Audio from zoom also does not come through.
Has anyone else noticed this? I did install silenzio because I noticed that sound had been choppy but I have also tried uninstalling it and also uninstalling and reinstalling Zoom to no avail.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Which indicates a problem, as it's atypical, and that should be followed up with several entities, given the information offered:

1. Freedom Scientific Technical Support.  E-mail:  support@... or Phone: (727) 803-8600, 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM Mon-Friday Eastern Time

2.  Google Accessibility:  Google Accessibility Get In Touch Page

 

Contact the Google Disability Support Team

When you have an atypical situation then pursuing technical support is the way to get it fixed.

I'd start with the folks at Freedom Scientific, as too many people use Gmail webmail under Chrome and other browsers without issue.  But you could need to uninstall and reinstall Chrome (which FS tech support would probably suggest as part of their diagnostics anyway).

I still have not understood why sometimes when I do enter or up or down arrow when proofreading emails I am composing, it takes me out of the message text area. I can tab back in or whatever but then it will happen again after a few lines. It's frustrating. Also, it will occasionally just not read a line in the middle of my text, actually it reads the same line twice, even though visually it is clearly on a different line and says something different.
Please please help.
So much appreciated.

Go  to:

 

https://zoom.us

 

Find the download link.

 

Search for your platform; Windows Mac Android, etc.

 

You can also download the desktop version if someone sends you AN invitation to a Zoom meeting and follow the instructions for installation.

 

To your mobile device search for the Zoom App in either the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

 

This too, will allow you to install the app on your mobile device is someone sends you an invitation automatically and you just have to follow the instructions.
