Hello everyone,

 

I have been told that I will have to use Canvas for my job soon. How accessible is Canvas with Jaws 2020 and Windows 10? I have no idea about what this program is supposed to do. Any pointers, suggestions, resources, or information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks.

 

Marilyn

Well, I have the Logitech K480 which has the same keys.

Yes, the corners are rounded, but the portion your finger is on is almost exactly the same size as a standard USB keyboard; like the one I am typing on now.

In fact, if they are any smaller, I cannot tell.

 

Personally, without trying it, no one can know if it works for them.

Wow, I was thinking of getting this keyboard.  Those things do not get mentioned in any of the product descriptions on Amazon and such.  You only discover them when you unbox and by then, you are let down as it was not quite what you had in mind after having it built up in your mind.  Round keys, who would have thought?

I have the logitech K780. I do not like it for the key layout. It has round keys instead of the normal square ones. The function keys do not have the typical space after each group of 4. The arrow keys are small and below the shift key. There is not the typical  6 pack   keys. It is well made, very heavy and made with a groove at the top to put a tablet or phone. It does work with three devices, computer, phone and tablet.   I would like to sell it.

This is an older one, but the F-keys are separated into groups of four, it is exactly like a regular desktop keyboard.

In fact, I think I will look into a bluetooth transmitter that I could plug into an old desktop computer to turn one of those into a bluetooth keyboard.

I assume you are talking about wireless keyboards, not necessarily bluetooth ones, since I believe there are very few choices for the actual bluetooth PC keyboards. If htis is the case, I can recommend my keyboard, it almost fits your requirements: Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5050. Function keys are not separated into groups of four, but what I've done is I put sticky dots on the function keys to make them into groups of four. I put bigger dots on F2 and F3, and I put smaller ones on F1 and F4, so that I can feel the whole group of 4 as a single block of keys.

I would look for the sound card in device manager and enter on it, and there

Hi,

I have had this problem for a long time as well, it just seems very
inconsistent with audio devices in Microsoft Windows 10.
I Think that the issue is with sound card power savings.
When different devices power down, JAWS and Microsoft Windows gets confused
as to which device should be used, is available etc and it seems to jump
around.
If enough of us report this to Freedom Scientific, they may look at it but I
have a feeling that it may be tricky as it is the way that Microsoft Windows
power management is working and there is little that you can do about that
as you can't disable the specific device power options unless the OEM writes
iit in to their software or ddrivers and they make the utility accessible.

Yes, I have speakers into my sound blaster card and headphones into my on

Jaws stopped speaking through sound blaster and tried speaking through the
speaker built in to my camera. It was too quiet to hear, but fortunately,
narrator was loud enough to hear through the small camera speaker.

I had to go to windows 10 sound settings and switch the focus back to the
sound blaster card, and all audio came through fine.

I still have the sound blaster card checked in Jaws, which should mean that
all Jaws audio comes through it, even when a different audio output is
selected in windows 10 settings.

I would like to figure out how to make this work properly.

I am using latest Jaws 2020 and windows 10. I have my sound blaster card
selected in Jaws, but when I go to sound settings in windows and change to a
different sound card, I lose Jaws speech.



I thought if I specifically selected the sound blaster card in Jaws, and not
the windows default sound, Jaws would always speak through the sound blaster
card, regardless of selection in windows 10 sound settings.



I am trying to route Jaws to the sound blaster card and other sounds to the
built in realtek sound card.



Any thoughts would be appreciated.



Also, when I plug in any new sound output device, such as a camera, windows
10 makes this the active sound output device, effectively turning off Jaws
speech.

Open the JAWS main screen, insert+j on the desktop keyboard.

Alt+u, o and then select your sound card.

I assume you are talking about wireless keyboards, not necessarily bluetooth ones, since I believe there are very few choices for the actual bluetooth PC keyboards. If htis is the case, I can recommend my keyboard, it almost fits your requirements: Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5050. Function keys are not separated into groups of four, but what I've done is I put sticky dots on the function keys to make them into groups of four. I put bigger dots on F2 and F3, and I put smaller ones on F1 and F4, so that I can feel the whole group of 4 as a single block of keys.

I would suggest using the desktop app.
The browser tends to be problematic with regards to accessibility.

This works, too.  But there's no need to hit Enter, and doing so will generally result in you putting that into your document.  The display of edit markers comes up/goes away the moment after you've hit that 8 if you use ALT+H,8.

The same is true if you use CTRL+Shift+8, which has the disadvantage of being a triple-key shortcut because of the use of asterisk (shift+8).  The effect of the command is immediate.

moderated Re: How to group by subject - Was: RE: in outlook 2019, how do you delete messages with one subject at once if you aren't interested in them?

Van Lant, Robin
 

For this JAWS list, I have a rule that puts all the messages in one folder when received, arranged with newest at the top.  I then have the columns organized so that subject is the first item JAWS reads, after the read/unread icon. Then, I have Conversations turned on.  This puts all JAWS list messages of a single subject into  one collapsible item.  If  you use this view, you also need to go into Outlook options and look for the setting under Accessibility  for keyboard navigation and tell outlook not to automatically expand conversations as you arrow past them.  I still find that this can happen, especially when I first come to this folder, but it’s not bad.   I thought JAWS used to consistently tell me if a conversation was expanded or collapsed, but I’m not hearing it right now and not sure if that is a JAWS change or something I accidentally tweaked.  Nonetheless, you can tell it’s a conversation header item If you hear multiple names after a subject line, as it will read the names of those who have contributed to that thread.  If you are on the  top item in this conversation, hitting delete will delete all the messages in that thread. I get a warning that I’m doing that.   If the conversation is expanded, hitting delete on any of the message will delete just that message.

 

Hopefully this gives you some ideas of things you can do.  I’m headed into meetings for the rest of the day, so I don’t’ have time to elaborate more.

A much more efficient way to delete items not of interest is to group by subject. I had this set, but some gremlin has undone it, and I can’t get it back.

Any Outlook hot-shot wonky wizards there to help?

IN Outlook 2016, with a message wit the subject line highlighted, applications key then I for ignore to delete the conversation. Also, if it’s regarding a thread via Groups.IO, there’s always the mute option if you have an account which is easy enough to create.

Control plus the delete key also works.

I can’t remember who posted this alternative method, but it’s what I’ve been using for a while.

 

Press the applications key. Release.

Press f. Release.

JAWS verbalizes, “Messages in this conversation.” Press enter.

Shift-tab to land in this list of messages.

Control-a for select all.

Delete key.

 

To return to the original message list, press escape, then alt-tab, release, alt-tab a second time.

 

A little burdensome? Yes, but it becomes automatic.
