moderated reading footnotes in a word document

kevin meyers
 

Hi, I’m using the most recent version of Jaws2020 and word 2016. When just reading a word document is it possible to setup Jaws so footnotes are visable without pressing the windows key plus ;? I know when I move through the document someone else has created, I wouldn’t know there were footnotes unless I was told. I guess I could always look using the windows plus ; keys. Yet if someone is just reading a book on a recreational basis will they know there are footnotes? What about Kindle? Thanks, Kevin

Marie,

 

Thanks, that did the trick. Had to do it twice as I had left Outlook open in the background.

go into the utilities menu, arrow down to import/export submenu.Arrow down to Migrate settings. I believe this will do what you want.

Subject: Settings from previous Jaws versions

 

Just installed Jaws 2021. I didn’t react to the box asking me if I wanted to import settings from a previous version as I wanted to check something out prior to doing this. I don’t get that box again when running the start up wizard. How do I get that choice again or do I need to manually export settings from Jaws 2020 and then import them into Jaws 2021?

 

Thanks

Alan


moderated Possible Warning About JAWS 2021 and Speech

Tom Lange
 

Hi all,

Immediately after installing JAWS 2021 this morning, I noticed that
speech at the beginning of words was being cut off when moving around
in dialog boxes, list views, et cetera. As you can well imagine, the
situation was intolerable and crazy-making . If this happens to you
after installing Fusion or JAWS 2021, you need to do the following to
solve the problem.

Step 1, press Insert+6 on the number row to get into Settings Center.
Step 2, press ctrl+shift+D to switch to the default settings.
Step 3, in the search box, type the word cut. Wait a few seconds for
the search results list to populate. You should see only one result.
It’s an unchecked checkbox with a label that reads as follows.

Avoid speech cutoff when using Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards.

If you tab away from that checkbox to read the explanatory text, you
should see some text that says

“Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers shut down after a while
of not receiving sound to conserve battery. If this check box is
selected, JAWS
will keep them awake by constantly playing silence. You will not hear
anything, but your device will remain active, resulting in more
consistent speech.
Note that the battery of your headphones/speakers could drain faster
if you turn this on.
This check box is cleared by default.”

End of explanatory text.

Checking that checkbox will eliminate the speech cutoff. However, the
side effect is that some events will trigger a reduction in speech
volume, which can be troublesome if you’re only using a laptop’s
speakers. I compensated for this dip in volume by using powered, wired
external speakers.

Step 4, tab to the Apply button and press Enter or the space bar.
Step 5, tab to OK and press Enter to close Settings Center.

Note: The checkbox referenced in step 3 above is unchecked by default
in JAWS 2020 and Fusion 2020, and there is no speech cutoff. So this
is a bug which was apparently introduced in 2021 which needs to be
reported to Freedom Scientific.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any questions.

Tom

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

I'm a fairly regular user of LinkedIn. It's an extremely busy site with a lot going on and, therefore, a lot of content and options to navigate through. However, LinkedIn is most definitely worth your time if you're at all interested in networking and job seeking. I have found it to be an invaluable resource and I can't recommend it highly enough. Parts of it are very accessible and other parts of it could do with some improvement but it's definitely doable.
I would take the time to build your profile with as much detail as is reasonable. Add any roles you've had/have, including volunteer opportunities which might be of relevance or interest to others, along with skills that you have, awards you've received, accomplishments, etc. Search for people who are also members who you'd like to network with but I would recommend doing so only when you feel your profile is at a point where you're comfortable with others viewing it.
I would call LinkedIn a professional networking site rather than a social networking site, such as Facebook. Therefore, keep everything professional. Highlight your professional work and skills but not your favorite foods or TV shows.
I don't have the time to provide one on one support or to answer specific questions about LinkedIn and I honestly don't know the best list or group where questions of this nature can be asked. However, give LinkedIn a chance and I think you may receive many benefits from it.

Yes, it is very accessible.

There is a lot of moving parts, and you will want to learn to take advantage
of all of your jaws alpha commands.

But, other than that, it is good.

navigate down through all the various settings to see if any column and

If I understood the new update process for those who wanted to be notified when JAWS 2021 is released you had to be running the latest build of JAWS 2020 or be running the public beta of JAWS 2021.

 

If you don’t have either of these and you don’t have any more updates available to you you also will not get notified that the 2021 has been released.

 

Go back and listen to previous episodes of FSCast where these things were explained.
