You need to use bookmarks in Word. Placemarkers only work on the internet.

I’ve encountered this phenomenon in the same repeated, very specific situation. I open a protected file and unprotect it. then I start reading and decide to set a placemarker at a certain point. I get that verbalization you quote. The solution for me is to alt-tab to another window, typically Outlook, and alt-tab back into the document. Then all is well.

Hmmm, just this file or everywhere.  I have a file with a couple hundred pages in it, and I just tried the experiment.  I'm also running word from office 365 and the place mark and return both worked fine.

Robin,

           You'll be doing "the latter."  Most web browsers these days don't set up home pages except if the user explicitly wants one, and particularly Chromium-based browsers, where reliance on the "On Startup" settings most often take precedence anyway.

            Open Chrome settings and search on "Home."   The Show Home Button setting will be in the search results, toggled off.  If you toggle it on, you will then be presented with two options:  New Tab Page (which is what it sounds like you're defaulting to when no Home Page has ever been set at all) and the second radio button is followed by an edit box where you enter the home page you prefer, so you'll select that and enter that.

             One note, you do not have to keep the Show Home Button option enabled after you do this, as you will have set a default home page whether or not you choose to have the home button displayed in the collection of browser controls.  

              After having set a default home page ALT+HOME behaves precisely as you describe it having behaved for you in IE.

moderated alt home equivalent in Chrome?

Van Lant, Robin
 

In Internet Explorere, I found the Alt Home shortcut to return to my default homepage very useful.  That shortcut doesn’t’ work in Chrome, but rather seems to pull up some version of a Google page.  Is there an equivalent shortcut in Chrome or a way I can change the action Google is currently doing?  I just looked on Google list of shortcuts and saw nothing for what I’m trying to do. I want to be able to quickly return to my company intranet page without having to go to bookmarks.

In Canada we cannot get the monthly SMA as a subscription.  We have to pay the $165 for the home version up front.  Yes, it is $165, I just renewed my SMA. Still cheap.  As one of my dog clients said, “It really depends on one’s priorities.” The comment had nothing to do with the SMA, it was pertaining to having the dogs ready when I came to pick them up, leash, knowing where the dog is etc.  You’d be surprised, some don’t know where the leash is and if they forget I’m coming, they could spend time just looking for the leash.

In my opinion it's always sworthwhile to keep up-to-date with Jaws unless of course you are using NVDA. The fact is that eventually you have to get caught up because Windows 10 changes so quickly and even with Office features change and are added all the time especially if you use Office 365 and there is simply no good reason to not always run the latest version.

Jaws is not quite as it used to be where a new version meant possibly major new features, nowadays sometimes these features are added half way through the year and in any case, if you don't upgrade on a regular bases or, if you live in the US, use Jaws via the subscription based model, you eventually have to pay hundreds of Dollars to get caught up, you might as well pay the $7 or $8 a month or whatever the subscription costs or if you use th eolder 2-year license model by the new SMA right after you use your last one. For the Home version I believe it's $120 every 2 years which is $5 a months, quite a few people spend this on coffee every day, if you divide it by the number of days it's like 16.66 Cents a day and having the use of Jaws is certainly worth a couple of quarters every 3 days to me.

Hi,

Real improvements can be subjective.

Depends on how you use the program and with what different types of software.

For me I stay updated for the following reasons:

  OS systems and programs are changing rapidly and with hnumerous updates.  Falling behind with JAWS can risk problems with the software interacting with the latest updates of apps and even the OS itself.

Each version of JAWS seems to get a bit snappier and responsive although , to be sure, problems remain and always will with any piece of software.

New features are constantly added and modified.  Each new version offers more accessibility with one or more programs.

   I am not advocating that one must keep JAWS always with the latest version , cost and other issues prevent this, but I have found it helpful to do so.

As I said updates can be subjective because we all use the program in different ways and with diverse pieces of software.  JAWS 2021 does a better job with Outlook than past versions however if I don’t use Outlook I may say not much difference. 

 

Does this make all clear as mud.  😊

As I said updates can be subjective because we all use the program in different ways and with diverse pieces of software.  JAWS 2021 does a better job with Outlook than past versions however if I don’t use Outlook I may say not much difference. 

 

Does this make all clear as mud.  😊

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

Hi,

I’m running one of the jaws 2021 Vedas, and I’m not sure which one. I keep being told that my software is up-to-date. Have there been any new releases?

Thanks,

Jessica

That is what I am hearing as well.

I would guess in very early November.

Beta three is in private beta now and will be released publicly very soon.

Find out more on Wednesday evening on Main Menu Live as we have Eric Damery with us in hour 1 to talk about JAWS and its release.

Brian Hartgen will be with us in Hour 2 to talk about the many things available to us from Leasey.

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.

moderated Re: Accessible fax services with JAWS and Windows10

 

I have been using Myfax.com for many years, but this is not a free service. I just switched to an internet based phone system at my retail store and it includes fax service through SRFax.com, not sure about their pricing, but most of these fax services work in a way where you simply send your fax by email to the PhoneNumber@FaxService.com where Faxservice.com refers to whichever service you use. For example, with Myfax I send to 12021234567@myfax.com, I can just write something in the email body or I can attach a PDF, Word, Excel or other document to the email and it will be sent. Within a few minutes after you send the email you get a return email which tells you if your fax was successfully sent or not.
For incoming faxes these services give you your own fax number, with Myfax I used to have a toll free number and if somebody sends you a fax to that number you get an email with the fax attached as a PDF file. Of course it's image based like any fax so you would have to run this through an OcR application or, if you use Jaws, you can use Convenient Ocr to recognize it.

Hello,
What are some accessible fax services for sending and receiving faxes with Windows10 and JAWS2020?
I am looking to send a fax by email to the number and receive it back by email as pdf.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

And anybody can currently download the Jaws 2021 public beta which I assume is pretty close to the final release going by how things were in years past. The nice thing with Jaws is that you don't have to remove or upgrade your existing version, Jaws 2021 Public Beta can run and live on your system happily alongside Jaws 2020 or whatever you have and if something is not as you expect you can always unload Jaws 2021 and reload Jaws 2020.

Hi Jim

 

I like reading Amazon Kendall books on my iPhone using Voice Over. When purchasing, I select the Kendall for iPhone option on Amazon web site.

 

I have not tried to read a Kendall book using JAWS.

 

Happy reading.

              Greetings,

 

I was gifted an eBook that someone really wants me to read. It’s an Amazon Kindle book. I seem to remember JAWS not doing well with such books a while back, but I don’t know if it has improved. What about on the iPhone? Is that any better?

If anyone has any advice on how to best read this eBook, please share your ideas.

Thanks much.

I did a lot of trial and error with the Read Aloud settings and found the Voice Options.

There are a lot of voices.

The ones that start with Microsoft, then a name, then Online Natural are the better sounding voices, which unless someone can say how to get them installed for Jaws, probably are not going to be available since they are Microsoft’s “Online” voices.

I’m sure you can that would just Google it. Find out which voice edges using and then select it.

Sharon, I have a note that since JAWS 2018, there is no longer any need to install the plug-in.

Where do you get the plug in?

Is there a way to search a 1500 page book reliably? Using Jaws?

The Windows Kindle app together with its accessibility plug-in works great for me.  I use it regularly to read Kindle books on my laptop.
