Tom,

           Just as an FYI I have two Gmail accounts running under Outlook, but am only syncing the Contacts from one of the two to Outlook Contacts/Address Book.  I can use the synchronized contacts in Outlook Contacts/Address Book when composing new messages from either account.

           And I just added a contact on the Google side that I know was brand new.  After I ran the sync it was in Outlook Contacts/Address Book and able to be used for new email messages no matter which account has focus when I start a new message.

The email selection button isn’t in the Address Book. It’s in Contact form.

Madison,

            It expects you to enter the e-mail address, e.g., blah@....  If you don't know what the other e-mail address was, either search your e-mail for a message from that person to snag it from or contact them to get it again.  You clearly still have the address you're trying to enter in Address Book, or you wouldn't be getting the error message you are, and if you want it in Contacts and not Address Book it's going to have to come out of Address Book first.

            I'm really confused as to why you'd have the same contact information in both Contacts and Address book.  It is typically in one, the other, but not both.  I can never remember whether it's Contacts under Outlook that is shared across all defined accounts or Address Book.

Madison,

I believe you have to create a separate contact for each Outlook e-mail
address.

At least this is what I do, and it seems to work fine. For any additional
e-mail addresses, I simply add something to the person's name so that I know
which address is which.

Madison,

         The button ahead of the e-mail address is a split button where the first entry is just, "Email."  If you want subsequent addresses gain focus on the split part of that split button, expand it, pick Email 2, then you have a separate entry to put in the second email address.  Lather, rinse, repeat for subsequent email addresses.

          Note, if you wish to have the "Display As" for each email be different, e.g., "Carly Watson - Work," and, "Carly Watson - Personal," then be sure to edit the Display As field right after you enter the e-mail address for whatever email address entry number you're working on before you move on to the next one for that person.

           A similar situation exists for physical addresses, too.  That button is a split button and allows the entry of Home, Business, and Other addresses within a single contact.

Each Contact in Outlook can have as many e-mail addresses in a single contact as you desire (or at least up to 5, I've never gone past that).  It's been that way for years.

While one can elect to create separate Contacts on a per-email-address basis, I almost never do that.

Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.
There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

You can leave dictation on or allow for sleep until you call for it.

Hello everyone,

I have a client who wishes to use some dictation software with JAWS. We have tried the new Dictate add-in with Word and JAWS. It works reasonably well, but seems to lack some of the “bells and whistles” like literal numbers or word and correction. But for get thoughts on a page and going back and “cleaning up, it is a good choice.

I get very mixed reviews on Dragon Naturally speaking and JAWS. I read everything from it works well to they don’t play nice together and it is difficult to set up.

Wondering about experiences anyone may have had trying to use Dragon with JAWS. My person is running JAWS 2020, and Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer. If it does work what do we have to do to make it so? Also a question of a headset mic vs tabletop. My client doesn’t care for headsets, but if a must have, a recommendation for a reasonably priced one.

Thanks

As you note, this isn't the right forum for discussing comparisons. I have two laptops on my desk: one is a MacBook Pro 2013 running Mac OS, and the other is a Lenovo P51 that dual boots Linux and Windows 10. The brief answer is that they all have their accessibility advantages and drawbacks, and I find myself switching between them as appropriate. They all have room for improvement.

A more detailed answer would be off-topic for the list. It very much depends on what you need to do, and which applications you prefer.

Are you familiar with the JAWS help system? It is incredibly comprehensive.

Press insert-J to open the JAWS window.

Press f1 to access the help system.

You will be in a list of what are known as books and topics.

Think of a topic as a chapter within a book.

Pressing enter will toggle a book from being opened or closed. A book must be opened in order to see the list of topics which are contained within that book.

Alternatively, when you are pointing to a book pressing right arrow opens the book and pressing left arrow closes it.

When you choose a topic that you want to open press enter.

Once you press enter your focus will still be in the list of books and topics. Press the F6 key to move to the topic that you opened. Topics will contain headings and, in most cases, links, just as though you were reading a Web page. Standard reading commands can be used to read each topic.

 

When you want to return to the list of books and topics press the F6 key again.

Sorry, but I can’t remember the hotkey for using the dictation feature in JAWS. It works well, assuming you don’t have any weird words in your dictation. For example, when I used it quite a qhile back, I was writing my fictional stories, containing the word Digimon. The dictation brought that out as did your mom, so it’s not as accurate as you’d like to believe on that score. It’s pretty good though for people who need to use it/just can’t remember the hotkey.

So once you enable it which keystroke do you use to activate it when you actually need to dictate something? I will be upgrading to Windows 10 here in a few days and this would be great to know as I'm not a great typist.

Hank,
In Windows 10:
Go to “Settings”
Go to “Ease of Access”
Tab once to get to list of items under “ease of Access”
Arrow down to “Interaction”
This will give you a list of four items
The top one is Speech
Tab over to the list of items to set up Speech Dictation.
Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.
There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

You can leave dictation on or allow for sleep until you call for it.

Hope this helps.

Good morning,

How does a person go about activating and when done exiting this built into Win10 dictation software and from wherre can maybe a person find a tutorial on using this dictation software with jaws? Any help I can maybe get with this would be so very much appreciated! Much thanks in advance for any possible help.







Kindest regards,

Hi,
I like the built in Speech Dictation in Windows 10. Like the Word “Dictate” add in it is just a basic program but responds well and is pretty accurate.

Hello everyone,

I have a client who wishes to use some dictation software with JAWS. We have tried the new Dictate add-in with Word and JAWS. It works reasonably well, but seems to lack some of the “bells and whistles” like literal numbers or word and correction. But for get thoughts on a page and going back and “cleaning up, it is a good choice.

I get very mixed reviews on Dragon Naturally speaking and JAWS. I read everything from it works well to they don’t play nice together and it is difficult to set up.

Wondering about experiences anyone may have had trying to use Dragon with JAWS. My person is running JAWS 2020, and Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer. If it does work what do we have to do to make it so? Also a question of a headset mic vs tabletop. My client doesn’t care for headsets, but if a must have, a recommendation for a reasonably priced one.

Thanks

Jim

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks

Rick, I have seen your message. However, I am not using JFW at the moment however I will be using it but hopefully by next weekend. And I will go take a look at the Google calendar for you. I have to get my desktop upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 and I also need to purchase just 2020, so it will definitely take me some time. So as I have it done I will look at this for you and send instructions.

Dear Listers:

I have listened to Freedom Scientific’s webinar about Google Calendar. I know how to create an event and know how to set the way I want notifications to appear—email, Desktop or Alert, using Settings. The funny thing that is happening is this. I have read that there are three ways of receiving Google Calendar notifications—by e-mail, desktop or Alert, but when I am in the Settings Menu and go to set the way in which I want to receive notifications, in the combo box in the Settings menu where I make my selection, there is no e-mail designation. When I am in the Settings menu and come to where you set your notifications I hit the Enter key to turn Forms Mode on. I currently have it set to Desktop notifications. I would like to set it to e-mail notifications but when I arrow up, instead of saying “E-Mail,” JAWS says, “Off.” I don’t understand. I have tried adjusting this setting using both Microsoft Edge and with my default Browser, Google Chrome, but nothing is working. Can any of you out there who use Google Calendar help and tell me how you receive your notifications using JAWS?

Kevin, sometimes you have to wait longer than before because I think their  people are still working from home.  But they always take as much time as is necessary to help me, so I don’t mind waiting. Judy & Libby

Hello, I have called Apple Accessibility the last two days and I’m on hold for extended periods of time. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Have they again reduced  the number of people answering calls? Thanks, Kevin
