Are there any real improvements in Jaws 2021 that will be worth the cost of updating?

Hi,

  As annoying as these questions are, and I agree they are annoying, it is a legal requirement. Also as much as the questions cause us grief the people are not “idiots” rather individuals created in the image of God trying their best to carry out the duties and requirements of the companies they work for on a daily basis.

Hi All,

 

In my current university context, I am teaching a course developed by a company that is external to the university. I keep running into things that are not easily accessible, and they have told me they are only testing accessibility with NVDA. So, my question, is it likely that I will find incompatibility with JAWS when they only test with NVDA?

Hi, Dave. First, you spelled rhetorical wrongly. Secondly, they weren't asking you if you had a question about your account. They were legally asking you if you would give them permission to access your account. The calls are often recorded or monitored, so, if they don't ask you if they have your permission to access your account, they could be considered to be invading your privacy, or, in some instances, even to be breaking the law. Not knowing the legal world may be causing you to be making some very unfounded assumptions. These questions may not be rhetorical at all.

Good afternoon: My assistant re-installed windows 10 and then Jaws 2018. Windows explorer is not set in the standard way that Jaws sets it, it's not reading file names and the like. Is this something that Jaws should do automatically or must I go into explorer and fix it? I certainly know how to do that, just surprised at what I'm seeing on the new install.

Thanks.

Hello Group,

Up until recently, I had no real reason to create groups from my Contacts using Outlook. However, at this point, I’m involved with a number of activities within my community where this feature is something that would be convenient as a contact option.

I had spoken with Bill White about this and rather to use the ribbon commands, he suggested using Control/Shift/L where I create a group name. After identifying a group name, I tabbed one time  to the Members Table field, arrowing down to identify contacts to fill the group. At this point, I received a message that “Members list table is unavailable.”

Am I on the right track, or it there another way to build  a group?

 

Best, Justin

Cohn, Jonathan
 

OFten times, people try to develop accessibility without understanding how accessibility  tools are used by a disabled person. Generally, an accessible web site wil work with NVDA, JAWS and VoiceOver. Sometimes developers think that the only way blind users navigate is with the tab key.  Other times they don’t understand browse mode vs forms mode.
Is any of their site visible to non-paying client?

If you have any strategies that would be great.

 

I am interest in figuring out how to successfully navigate toad subscribers from my current email distribution list in Outlook giving people options to subscribe and unsubscribe.

 

I attended a webinar today but the screen was not being explained sufficiently for me to figure it out.

Hello,

   

I gave them at Fredom Scientific a call yesterday to see if maybe I could find out and a sales person said that sometime in the 1st or 2nd week of next month November, we will be able to download the oficial release copy of Jaws2021. Hopefully this is when we will be able to at the latest!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kindest regards,

Yes, the exact minute FS announces it.

Sadly, these kinds of questions cannot be answered until the mother company says something.

Thanks for this.  The only thing that worked for me was to restart JAWS or to reboot.  I did not know about resetting the scripts with Insert Control Escape.  I hope to remember to try that next time.

Hi there,

 

I have arranged the provided answers to clarence’s question on excel in a Chronological order for you below. I hope it helps. Please share with us your experience. Personally, I would love to know if it has worked for you or not.

Best wishes,

Ali

 

Lately, I have noticed that when I hit the F2 key to edit a cell, JAWS reads the contents, but I cannot move through the contents of a cell. For example if I want to check the spelling of an entry, I usually hit F2 and arrow back and forth to see the spelling. I do the same thing if I want to check a formula. Am I missing a JAWS or Excel setting?

I have had some of that myself. Try using that control home after you hit the key to edit the cell. It seems to go back to the beginning of the cell and you could then arrow to the right.

Maybe.

1. In Excel, go to advanced options: alt-f, then t, then a.

2. Tab to "allow editing directly in cells" and be sure it is not checked.

 

Good luck!

In addition to unchecking the "edit in cell" option, another thing I have done is uncheck the option for "auto completion."  The combination of these two things has resulted in a resolution for me.

From time to time I have this issue and have tried many things to correct it.  Sometimes they work and sometimes they do not work.  Please try the following:
1.  Go to the "VIEW" menu and zoom in or out.  75% and 100% seem to be the best zoom sizes.
2.  Press alt+space bar and try "Restore" if the window is maximized or try "Max" if the window is not maximized.
3.  Press insert+Escape or try insert+ctl+Escape to reset the JAWS scripts.
4.  If push comes to shove, I kill JAWS and restart it.
Most of the time, one of these methods will correct the problem.

I know that this has been discussed here before, but what was that check box that must be unchecked to allow editing in a cell in Excel again?  All that I get when pressing F2 from JAWS is "blank" when I try to read the text in a cell.  Also, my JAWS curser is stuck on the clock in the system tray.  I am using the JAWS 2020 and Excel 2007 and Windows 7.  Thanks.
