With your Zoom client open, Tab to the tab list and go to the Home tab.  Tab to the Share Options button dropdown and hit Space.  Down arrow to the Share Computer Sound check box and hit Space to check it.  Now, what ever you hear from your computer will also be recorded and heard by your meeting participants.  You may want to do a test to check the levels, as JAWS may be too loud.  HTH

Hello all,

I am trying to record a Zoom meeting and I need my Jaws voice to be heard. When I play a practice recording, the Jaws voice is really low in the background. I have tried turning my volume up to 100 percent with no success. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Hello,

 

Have you gone into the Settings of Zoom and opened the Audio Settings? You may have Auto Gain Control on and this may be causing recording volumes to be on the low side.

 

Another thing you should check and that is do you have Audio Ducking turn on in JAWS.

 

If you are running the public beta of JAWS 2021 you may want to turn the Voice Assist off.

 

That just some thoughts to look into.

JM & David,

           If you have focus on the actual YouTube player, the full screen keyboard shortcut, f, will make the YouTube player go full screen.  It is a toggle so hitting it again reverts back to the player being embedded on the YouTube page.

           If you have high resolution video, going full screen may be helpful.  If you have low resolution video, it can make matters worse as everything becomes very pixellated/fuzzy.  But you can't know what a given video will look like any more easily than by throwing it to full screen and then going back if it doesn't suit you.

I would first check that JAWS is set to “use on the lock screen”. Otherwise, when the UAC pops up, just press the left arrow once and then press enter.

Or you can change the User account control settings to stop it from coming up in the first place.

I have a friend who is using Windows 10 with JAWS 2020 and whenever a User Account Control dialogue box opens, it does not read anything to her. She tab and shift tabs and presumably there should be a Yes and a No button on whether she wants to make any changes but it is silent. I’m using Windows 7 with JAWS 2020 and am not having the issue. Is anyone else having this issue and do you know what may be causing it?

I don’t think youtube videos normally fill up the screen – it’s a smallish frame within your browser. There is a fullscreen keystroke “f” (also a button in the player if you’d prefer to navigate to it)…not sure if it’s beneficial to invoke the browser’s own fullscreen command or not.

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.

Hi,

  The issue has been around for a while now.  Sometimes you will get “0 messages” after Outlook has been running for some time.  This occurs with the latest Outlook in Office 365.  Scrolling up and down or tabbing away and back seems to fix things for a time.

Also JAWS 2021 still loses focus like prior versions using the phrase “ unavailable”. for a Windows explorer window.  Again tabbing away or around fixes the problem.

Hi, I get most of my emails sent to me in the HTML format. When I open an email up, there are usually at least two blank tables which all get read by JAWS.

I probably should know this but I don’t know what those tables are nor how to stop them from being read. Can someone jog my memory on this?

moderated Re: Office/Outlook spell check question

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Documents can be multilingual. So the dictionary and speech output can change within each document. So, first go into your Outlook/Word settings and make sure your default language is US/Canadian. But then if you are replying to a message from somebody in USA it could probably be switched back to US.
In JAWS there is a setting to not only switch synthesizers on language but on dialect. If you click this, then JAWS should speak differently for US English and UK English and Indian English. I am not sure if there are any speech synthesizers for Canadian  dialects. So perhaps my suggestions of toggle that JAWS setting won't help you to recognize you have switched dialects.

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.

Hi all,
I'm not sure if this is something that can just be fixed for Outlook, or if it has to be done for all Office programs. I don't even know if it can be fixed period, but I hope that it can. Anyway, I'm running Windows 10, Jaws 18 and Office/Outlook 2013. I have Outlook set to check spelling before sending a message and sometimes I'm told that the dictionary language is English (Canada) and other times it's in English (United States). When you tab to change or ignore the error you go past a combo box where you're supposed to be able to change the selected language using the arrow keys, but when I tried to do that (it was on English United States) it just took me back to the inbox. So I'm wondering, is there another way to change the dictionary language? Since I'm Canadian I'd like to have it be set to Canadian English. The main Office program that I use is Outlook so that's the main place where I'd like the dictionary language changed, but if I have to or can change it in Word then that would be nice too!! I hope that this makes sense, and that there's a easy/simple way to change this. Look forward to any help/suggestions that any of you can provide!!
