Hi, Everyone.
I'm using JFW2018 with Win10 build 1903. Is there a tutorial for the Microsoft Edge browser?

I'd like to use Firefox, but it keeps squawking at me to update my screenreading software.

Thanks,

Since the purpose of these lists is to provide help to each other, and the information provided by Brian was detailed and appeared to be very helpful, I do not see the point in criticizing those who provide valuable assistance. All that does is discourage future contributions, possibly from that person or from others who might have thought of answering a question.

Hi Steven,

 

Are you asking about audio ducking?  If so, read below.

 

Note: The new setting is explained after the 2 emails.

From: Jessica D
Hi, 

 

I’m curious why the option to have jaws not cutoff words, is only available when audio ducking is disabled. 

 

I use audio ducking all the time, but would still love to be able to take advantage of this feature.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Hi, Jessica. The reason the new setting in JAWS to keep sound cards awake is not enabled while Audio Ducking is enabled is because, while audio is being
ducked, another application is running which uses the sound card. If another application is using the sound card, that application will usually keep the
sound card awake, independently of JAWS. 

 

Bill White 

 

 
New Option to Keep Wireless Speakers and Sound Cards from Clipping Speech
When JAWS or Fusion Begins Speaking  
Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers as well as some onboard sound
cards shut down when no audio is received in order to conserve battery. JAWS
now includes a new option, which when enabled, keeps these devices awake by
constantly playing silence. You will not hear anything, but your device will
remain active, resulting in more consistent speech. To enable this feature,
open Settings Center (INSERT+6) on the number row, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to
load
the default settings, and search for "Avoid speech cut off when using
Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards."
 
Note: The battery of your headphones/speakers could drain faster if you
choose to turn on this feature. This option is also not available if the
Audio
Ducking feature is enabled which lowers the audio volume of programs while
JAWS speaks.
 


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I’m using the latest version of outlook.

 

And the commands are:

 

Alt o give you the folder ribbon. You can cursor down and left and right to get to the item you want or

 

Alt o then d f is for delete folder

Alt o then m f for move folder

 

Note if you create folders unless you change the setting they will be created inside the folder that you happen to be in at the time of the command.

 

Have a good day.

Yes, here as well.  I think it came with a new version of firefox.  It has something to do with Jaws, I suspect because on one page where I can make it happen, it doesn't crash with nvda.

 

If anyone wants to have a crash with latest version of firefox go to www.cvstats.net and hit enter on country stats.  Firefox will crash immediately.

Hi everyone,

 

thanks everyone for your replies. It’s a shame it doesn’t seem like there is a built in feature/setting to turn it on permanently. Still the ability to turn of the display is still a handy feature and who knows maybe they’ll add in a permanent setting in some later version. at least there is a layered keystroke  so it’s at least nice and easy to just turn on/off . Mario, I did see your reply/suggestion, I was really just hoping for a straight forward setting in Jaws somewhere, I’m not really sure how  to amend the auto start commands in Jaws and I don’t want to accidently break jaws 😊 since I mainly use my desktop  and only use the laptop occasionally (where screen shade would be used) I’ll just stick with manually turning the feature on/off, but thank you for your suggestion

Hi Paul,

 

To the best of my knowledge, no it can't be turned on permanently.  For others that are unfamiliar with this Jaws feature it's explained below.

 

Note:  This feature is only available with Jaws2018 & Newer, running Windows 10.  I'm not sure, but possibly Windows 8.1 as well.
 
 Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by F11 or Printscreen both toggle screen curtain on and off.
 
The screen shade setting does not appear in the Jaws Settings Center and is only accessible through the layered  keystroke feature or, Jaws quick settings. 
 
 The layered keystroke feature is when you  hold down the Insert key then press down the spacebar, let up on both keys, then press a third key to perform
a particular task.
 
 In this case the layered keystroke to turn the, Screen Shade, On or Off task is below: 
 
 Hold down the Insert key, then press down the spacebar, now let up on both keys, and tap either the, Print Screen, key,  or the, F11 key.

Subject: Permanently activating Jaws screen shade

 

Hi everyone,

 

I recently discovered Jaws has a screen shade function which turns off the display of  your PC. It seems to be a temporary option however, as every time I restart my PC I have to reenable screen shade. I have tried both the layered key stroke and setting  screen shade through quick settings , but as mentioned both seem to only activate  jaws screen shade until I boot down my laptop. Does anyone know is there a way of setting jaws so screen shade is always on?

Hi Shan,

how NVDA get round this with their equivalent feature (screen curtain), is
that it doesn't turn on the screen curtain feature until the desktop has
fully loaded , that way if there are any issues at start up the screen is
still turned on, it only turns off once NVDA and the desktop screen are
fully loaded.

As a developer and one who has supported users, I can understand why the
screen shade item has been set to have to be turned on. If it was a
permanent setting what would happen is it would end up generating calls.
Because people would have their jaws starting up with the screen shade
enabled, and then say something happened on start up of jaws. The screen
would be blank. And there are a lot of users who would just ask a sighted
person can you see what's happening. Well the answer would be nothing
because the screen would be blank.


So from a support point of view it is better that it isn't an always on
feature.

Have a good day everyone.

I was thinking, perhaps it would be possible to add the appropriate command
to the autostart function in the myextensions.jss file and hopefully it will
compile successfully. this way, screen curtian will be invoked everytime
JAWS is loaded or restarted.

the alternative would be is to turn the monitor off, but a laptop doesn't
have a power button or a way to turn it off. although I could be wrong, I
don't think so.

Subject: Permanently activating Jaws screen shade Hi Paul, To the best of my
knowledge, no it can't be turned on permanently. For others that are
unfamiliar with this Jaws feature it's explained below.
Note: This feature is only available with Jaws2018 & Newer, running Windows
10. I'm not sure, but possibly Windows 8.1 as well.

Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by F11 or Printscreen both toggle screen
curtain on and off.

The screen shade setting does not appear in the Jaws Settings Center and is
only accessible through the layered keystroke feature or, Jaws quick
settings.

The layered keystroke feature is when you hold down the Insert key then
press down the spacebar, let up on both keys, then press a third key to
perform a particular task.

In this case the layered keystroke to turn the, Screen Shade, On or Off
task is below:

Hold down the Insert key, then press down the spacebar, now let up on
both keys, and tap either the, Print Screen, key, or the, F11 key.

With each press of this keystroke sequence you will hear Jaws report
either, Screen shade on or, Screenn shade off.

Since the Jaws screen shade feature isn't available in the Settings
Center, and can be only accessed by the 2 ways mentioned above, here's the
way to check its current setting through Jaws quick settings:

BTW, whether you're in Explorer or a program, the screen shade setting
is found in the General Options category of Jaws quick settings. So, when,
in or on, most places of your computer press, Insert + V, to open Jaws quick
settings.
Down arrow until you hear Jaws report, General Options, and if Jaws reports
that it's closed right arrow to open.
Now continue down arrowing until you hear Jaws report, Screen Shade,
either checked or unchecked. Pressing the spacebar will toggle this setting
on & off, checked being, On, and unchecked being, Off.

If you make a settings change for this setting or others, then tab to
the, Okay button, press enter to save your settings changes & close quick
settings.
