the problem is most of the time this does not work.
i can set it to stay on or off for all applications and when i go to another web page it will still go back to the previous setting i had before i turned it on or off for all applications.

Yes. Instead of pressing INSERT plus Z in the browser while the cursor is off, try pressing the same keystroke twice quickly. It should say Virtual cursor will be turned on for all applications.

Hello, everyone.



Ever since I went into Jaws settings, and set Jaws to “Full content using on screen highlight” in both Firefox and Google Chrome, I now need to manually turn on my virtual cursor every time I open up a web site in either browser.



Is there a way I can avoid this extra step??



If not, I may set things back to the virtual cursor option.



Thank you!

Yea, that was the first thing we tried.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Hi Ray & Sharon,

 

I wonder if this could possibly be a soundcard issue.  Try the following and see if this settings change helps or not.

1. Press, Insert + 6, on the the number row to open the Settings Center, now press, Control, Shift + D, to open the Settings Center default all applications.

 

2. Down arrow to, Users, and right arrow to open.

 

3, Down arrow several times to, Avoid speech cut off when using Bluetooth headphones or some soundcards, if this is unchecked press the spacebar to check it, tab to, apply, press the spacebar, tab to, okay, and press enter to save / close.

 

See if this helps and if it doesn't a call to Freedom Scientific / Vispero tech support might be in order.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

When Jaws stops talking, does it resume speaking after a period of time, or do you have to restart Jaws with a Jaws start-up shortcut keystroke?

About a month ago I got a new Windows10 computer with JAWS20 home.  Whenever I switch between apps with alt-tab I lose speech.  Has anyone experienced this and is there a fix?

Hi again, Tom. Another thing to try is this.

 

1. Start either Google Chrome or Firefox.

2. Press INSERT plus six on the numbers row to bring up Settings Center.

3. In the search box type the word use

4. One of the options that may result is Use Virtual PC Cursor.

5. Make sure this is checked.

6. When closing Settings Center, save the configuration file. It will prompt you if you wish to do this.

 

This should keep the Virtual Cursor on each time you start either Chrome or Firefox.

I can agree with this.
I too have a huge time getting around out on face book via both JAWS and or NVDA.
Even though my brother who’s also a jaws user, has a better time out on face book than I do.
I’ve been thinking of pulling my face book account down, since I don’t use it all that much.
But, if I can get some advice from a fellow JAWS user to make it more accessible, than I’ll probably use it more often.
Just my two cents on this topic.

Hi, Tom. No. Virtual Cursor should be turned on in these programs anyway. Even if it weren't, you'd need to perform the same keystroke in these other programs to change anything with them.

I was having this problem with a Windows 10 laptop that was only just better than the minimum specifications required to run Jaws 2020.

 

I decided to splash out on a laptop with an intel I-7 processer and 16 GB of ram, and the difference is astonishing. I can count on one hand the number of times this has happened over the past 4 months, previously it was happening every day, several times a day.

I was having no problems with JAWS at all on my new laptop with 16 GB of RAM until I started using Outlook.  Now every once in a while when arrowing through the list of emails in the inbox, JAWS will stop talking and I have to restart it.  This doesn’t happen often, maybe a couple times a week, and I am in Outlook all of the time.
