JSM files can be opened and edited in a text editor like Notepad. and of course the Script Manager can also be used to modify JSM files since it comes with JAWS.


do not use a word processor like Word or Wordpad. you want to use a program that does not process text, thus leaving anomalies when saving the edited file.

moderated JAWS2020.2012.9 Update Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Here's the December update for Jaws2020 build 2012.9 + what's new in this release.
 
32 & 64 bit download link:
 
 

What's new in this build:
Enhancements in JAWS 2020.2012.9 (December 2020)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the August 2020 release and the December 2020 update.
 
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
 
list of 15 items
• In the 2020 December Update, we have included a fix that will help users of ZoomText and Fusion in the future when they uninstall that version yet continue
to use later versions. There was a problem in earlier 2020 versions where it was impacting shared components with other versions such as the most recent
release. We encourage anyone who still has the 2020 versions installed, to please update  now even if you are not currently using it.
• Fixed a long-standing issue in File Explorer where JAWS would often not announce the correct number of files in the current folder.
• JAWS now properly reads as expected in Skype when moving focus back to the app without the need to first press ALT and ESC.
• When launching the Skype app included in Windows 10, JAWS now loads the correct settings files.
• 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.
• Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
• Resolved an issue when selecting all text (CTRL+A) in  a large Word document. This action would cause JAWS to hang for several seconds.
• Addressed an issue in Word documents where JAWS was not announcing indentation increments when pressing TAB.
• Resolved an issue in Excel where JAWS was not reading the selected item in various combo boxes in the Font dialog box.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the Auto  Complete options in the Chrome Address bar.
• Addressed an issue where same page links were not always working as expected in Chrome or Edge Chromium.
• 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.
• Resolved an issue with navigating to the configuration editor in Thunderbird Email when running JAWS or Fusion.
• Addressed reports of JAWS performance issues encountered after accessing the Start menu multiple times.
• Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
list end

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

moderated Translating scripts from one language into another

Hello everyone,

I’m thinking of translating some useful jaws scripts into Spanish, at least, that is what I would like to do; however, I don’t have any experience either scripting or programming, so I’m on the lookout for information about how to translate and test the scripts  post translation process. On the web, I have found valuable information written by the jaw’s scripter Doug Lee, and even when those guidelines have been described in  minute detail, I still don’t   know which program I should use to modify the messages and announcements  that jaws would verbalize, taking into consideration that files with different extensions must be modified for the changes to be effective.

 

So, I would really appreciate if someone can provide more information or indicate a website I which I can find further information.

 

Thanks!

Hello there. Here where I work, I have to do this a lot as part of my
job, and unfortunately, when this happens, I have to request sighted
help, because there are certain things that I cannot do with respect
to making the PDF fully accessible. You can mark up documents in Word,
and save it as a PDF. The heading levels, lists table of cntents, etc.
all work properly, but the issue comes when trying to add edit fields,
check boxes, drop downs and other form controls.

moderated Re: How should Custom Highlights work?

Cohn, Jonathan
 

I generally use custom highlighting features in applications that do not indicate selected items correctly. For example if you have an application (not a web page one!) that has a list and you are supposed to press space to select an item in the list but JAWS does not recognize this. You might find that the selected text is Bright orange background. So, bring up the custom highlight tool and it will recognize the foreground and background color of the currently focused item. You can then tell JAWS to use that foreground and/or background color to indicate an item is selected.

  • Enter again to confirm
  • The "Customer Highlight Options - WORD" dialog appears, and confirms that "SpringGreen3 on white" is set as a Highlight

According to the help file, "Once assigned, text matching the color(s) you have specified is treated as highlighted by JAWS. For example, SaySelectedText (INSERT+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW) reads Custom Highlights you have assigned." When I hit INS + SHIFT + DOWN, I would expect JAWS to read out the green text, but it doesn't: instead, it just says "nothing selected".

What am I doing wrong?

Google brings back several results including Youtube videos when searching for creating accessible pdf forms. I believe you do need a PDF tool and can’t just export a Word form.
Both Adobe Acrobat and CommonLook claim to be able to create accessible PDF forms.
For more complicated forms where JavaScript is used to calculate results, then you might want to look at contacting a company that does this. There are several PDF accessibility contractors in the United States.

moderated Adobe Acrobat Reader DC #jaws

jlaffey@...
 

Hi all,

I have been having an issue with JAWS 2020 (as well as 2018 and 2021) and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC when completing fillable forms.

Example of structure of document

Heading 1
Paragraph of text
Edit Field
Paragraph of text
List of ten items
Check Box

If I up and down arrow through the .pdf I can read all content with no issue.  Down arrow to the bottom, up arrow to the top with no issue. I can type in the edit field, then leave form modes and down arrow to read the paragraph of text, the list of ten items, and the checkbox label/form field.  If I interact with the checkbox at all, my focus gets hung up on the check box where it constantly announces the checkbox name despite having used my up and down arrow to leave that field. I can go to the desktop and then back to Adobe and it reads perfectly until I interact with the checkbox once again.  NVDA has no issue and neither does Fusion oddly enough.  This issue occurs on my work and personal pc when using JAWS 2020 (2018 and 2021).  If I use other reading commands like word by word I have no issue.  It seems to be line by line reading after interacting with the checkboxes.

Has anyone had this type of focus issue before?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Regards,

Justin Laffey

I'm trying to get the LastPass password manager Chrome extension to work with JAWS. To access the extension without JAWS, a user clicks on it and is then shown a list of passwords for whatever site they are on. However, the Virtual PC cursor doesn't see the button LastPass adds to websites and it doesn't even seem possible to access it with the JAWS cursor.

 

Is there anyone on the list who has successfully used LastPass with JAWS? I'm wondering if I can tweak how it's set up so that it's more accessible.

Thank you John. I did some more experimentation and found a good workaround: if I'm in an edit box that LastPass can supply a user ID or password for, I can use the JAWS cursor to right click and then access LastPass via the context menu. It's a little cumbersome but after a couple of runs through it gets pretty efficient. Seems like a couple of scripts to automate the various keystrokes wouldn't be too hard to write, either.

Subject: Does the LastPass Chrome extension work with JAWS

 

I'm trying to get the LastPass password manager Chrome extension to work with JAWS. To access the extension without JAWS, a user clicks on it and is then shown a list of passwords for whatever site they are on. However, the Virtual PC cursor doesn't see the button LastPass adds to websites and it doesn't even seem possible to access it with the JAWS cursor.

 

Is there anyone on the list who has successfully used LastPass with JAWS? I'm wondering if I can tweak how it's set up so that it's more accessible.

 

Thanks,

 

Jim
