Van Lant, Robin
 

Thanks, Brian.  I suppose that makes sense if they want to be able to place a link to one of the company news stories directly on an email.  It’s a new approach to me and leaves some JAWS verbal clutter, but I supposed I’ll get used to it.

PermaLinks are normally used in circumstances, like online forums, or comments sections in newspapers (or elsewhere), that it would be otherwise impossible to get to that particular bit of content using the URL that's actually in the address bar.  

It's a method to allow you to get to something directly that you might otherwise never be easily able to "drill down" and find in the future.  The text itself has never had "PermaLink" shown, in my experience, but you get that notice via hover-over if you're sighted.

moderated JAWS2021 Beta2 Build, 2009.52.40, Download & Beta Report Form Links + What's New

Mike B
 


Hi All,
 
Below is the download link for both the 32 and 64 bit versions, a link to the Beta report form and what's new in this release.
 
 
32 and 64 Bit Download Link:
 
 
 
Beta Report Form Link:
 
 

Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 2
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 1 and Public Beta 2. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Automatic Message Reading in Outlook 365
 
When you open a message from the Inbox in Outlook 365, JAWS and Fusion will now immediately begin reading the message contents without reading the title
or header information. Currently, messages are not automatically read if you ALT+TAB to an open message, or you press ENTER on a message in the Inbox that
is already open.
 
To further customize how messages are read, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) while in Outlook, search for "message," and configure any of the resulting options.
A few items you might want to change include:
 
list of 3 items
• Message Header Field with Message Announcement: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the sender's email address and the subject
of the message when a message opens or gains focus.
• Messages Automatically Read: Turn this option off if you do not want JAWS and Fusion to automatically read messages when they are opened.
• Speak Window Titles For Read-only Messages Automatically: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the title of the message window
when a message opens or gains focus.
list end
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021 Public Beta 2
list of 13 items
• Added a new Settings Center and Quick Settings option called "Pan Text by Paragraph" which is off by default. When enabled, JAWS sends an entire paragraph
to the braille display instead of only the current line as you navigate web pages and documents. This can help improve the flow of reading when panning
through text as you are less likely to encounter large amounts of empty space on the display when you reach the end of a line. You should now only encounter
blank space if you reach the end of a paragraph, and you would move to the start of the next paragraph when panning again.
• While in a Zoom meeting, you can now press CTRL+SHIFT+T to find out who is currently talking. Zoom recently added this option with CTRL+2 but we were
previously using it for a JAWS feature.
• When using the Voice Assistant in JAWS, you can now quickly specify whether or not JAWS listens for the wake word by pressing INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR twice
quickly. Whether the wake word is on or off, you can always press this keystroke one time to have JAWS start listening for a voice command.
• In the Sound Control Panel applet, resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading as expected in the list views on the Playback and Recording pages.
• Addressed a reported issue where the JAWS settings Import/Export feature was not working as expected when using Windows folder redirection.
• The default graphics verbosity for JAWS is now to read only labeled graphics as it is no longer as important for JAWS to read graphics that are not labeled.
If you encounter a situation where you need to read unlabeled graphics, or you do not want to hear graphics at all, open Settings Center and search for
Graphics Verbosity.
• JAWS no longer automatically disables the "Show animations in windows" setting while running.
• Added five new Japanese voices to the Add/Remove Voices utility, which allows you to sample and download Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices for use with JAWS,
ZoomText, and Fusion.
• When using CTRL+DELETE or CTRL+BACKSPACE to delete by word in Office 365, resolved an issue where JAWS was too verbose.
• Resolved a reported issue with Windows 10 Insider Builds where Outlook becomes unusable with JAWS after leaving your system idle for a long period of
time.
• Resolved an issue where a user had over 200 entries in a JKM (Keyboard Manager) file, causing some commands to not work as expected. We now have extended
the number allowed.
• Fusion and JAWS 2021 will now interrupt reading when you press the WINDOWS Key to open the Start Menu.
• Resolved an issue with navigating to the configuration editor in Thunderbird Email when running JAWS or Fusion.
list end
 
Enhancements in ZoomText 2021 and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 2
list of 4 items
• When installing ZoomText 2021 or Fusion 2021, you can now migrate your settings from an older ZoomText or Fusion release (for example, releases 2020
or 2019) to the latest ZoomText 2021 release. This includes features such as magnification level, color, pointer, cursor, and mouse enhancements, and any
custom settings you created for applications.
• Resolved a ZoomText tracking issue in InfoConnect. This is an application used by IRS employees.
• Resolved several issues in Outlook 2016 and Outlook 365:
list of 4 items nesting level 1
◦ Focus enhancements and tracking now work correctly in the Select Names: Contacts dialog.
◦ The cursor enhancement is no longer visible while selecting text in a message.
◦ The cursor enhancement is now visible when you navigate to a link in a message.
◦ Addressed other focus enhancements issues when navigating various panes in Outlook 2016.
list end nesting level 1
• Voice Assistant can now be enabled or disabled using the Voice Assistant check box in the Startup Wizard.
list end

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Like all X-Key+Y-Key commands, the presses must be together.  That being said, you can press X-Key, keep it held, and hit Y-Key, and that will execute the action.

That's the whole purpose of the plus designation.  In sequential presses, e.g., WinKey+X,E to open File Explorer, the comma us used to specify the next press in the sequence.  In this case, you must hold down WinKey and while its held down, hit X, then release those and hit E.

All,

Our company just started using SharePoint Online for our company news intranet site.  As I navigate the page, I’m hearing “Perma link” I can actually even navigate this letter by letter,  but am thinking it’s not visually on the page.  Anyone her of this designation and know why this might be used over another method of tagging? 

 

Here is a sample from JAWS speech history.  I had just navigated to a story profiling a coworker. IT first read a heading with the story title, then the following;

Windows Key is the same as the start menu key. It's typically the second key to the right of the spacebar. I press that key, then hit the up arrow once to maximize the open window. So, yes, Chrome needs to be open or the keystroke will maximize whatever other program you are currently on.

That gets you into full screen mode, which is very different than a standard maximized window.  It's also a toggle, so if you've gone full screen and want to get back to normal you hit F11 again.

moderated Re: Steps wanted to maximize Chrome browser window

 

On any Windows based system I've every touched the Windows Key is on the lowest row of keys, on the left, and very often the third key in (after a CTRL and FN key).

Any command for the browser must be done after the browser is open and its window has focus.  And WinKey+Up Arrow does maximize the window.

This is not, however, a browser specific command, but a Windows command.  Any window that happens to have focus will be maximized if you hit WinKey+Up Arrow, and will be restored down (not minimized to the system tray) if you hit WinKey+Down Arrow.

Van Lant, Robin
 

Kevin,

Did you end up resolving the Amazon return issue?  I just did an Amazon return, but I selected the option to return the item to Kohl’s.  Amazon sent me an email with the QR code in it.  The QR code is right below the words “Return Code”, but JAWS did not acknowledge it in any way. I tried moving by graphic with G, but that didn’t work. Arrowing through the lines of the email doesn’t pick it up, but I have enough vision to see it. 

When I read the same email on my iPhone. Voiceover does not pick up the image if I flick through the lines, but if I run my finger down the email, I heard Voiceover say “Image” just below the “Return Code” and that is the QR code.   The return person at Kohl’s just needed to enlarge the QR code ,but I did not need to do anything with the QR code myself.

Hello, I’m using windows10, Outlook 2016 and the most recent version of Jaws2020. When an item is returned to Amazon and email is sent with a QR code. Jaws doesn’t recognize the code. In the past I would print out the email and or forward it to my IPhone. This recent return the code doesn’t show up when I print it. Also it doesn’t appear in the email I forwarded to my IPhone. Is there something in Outlook that could be causing the code to disappear? I should say that when I look at the email on my IPhone, it says image removed by sender. I didn’t remove anything. Any thoughts? Cheers, Kevin

I believe he has a laptop, not a desktop, so no tower to deal with.

It sounds like an overheating issue to me.

Laptops need air flow underneath them as most of the benting is on the bottom.

If it isn’t overheating, then it likely needs   to be gone through by a technician.

 

I believe I already gave my advice for getting air underneath it, but here goes.

Take 20 to 24 pennies, make 4 stacks of 5 to 6 pennies, wrap them in tape, duct tape works great, so they are even and place them under the four corners of the laptop.

If you have some double sided tape, you can also stick them to the bottom of the laptop so they don’t fall off if you move it.

 

Inexpensive but effective solution.

It works for my Del laptop.

My Jaws versions of 2018 and 2019 don't always respond to these commands so I press alt h then tab to cells format then press enter, and I can choose between row height, column width,etc with the up and down arrows. Or sometimes I'll restart Jaws, but that doesn't always help either.



Hope that helps.

Well, it seems to be less obvious these days.

I'll post a link to a Microsoft support page below, but one way to get there is to press alt+q, type cell width, arrow down to cell width and hit enter.



Maybe there is a more direct way.



Here is the page I got from searching the web:

Hello, I'm using most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I'm also using Office 2016. I want to change the width of a cell. When I got to the spot to change the width it said it was 8.11. Is that the number of characters that can fit in the cell?

Then to change the width of a entire column, I would have to highlight the column and then make the size of the cell wider. Cheers, Kevin
