I am not sure if this whole issue has been resolved as I am late to the thread but if people want to know  how to force OneDrive to download a file they simply have to press the application key and select always keep on this device.

If you want to do the opposite and force a file into online status only then  just  hit the next option on the application menu which will be free up space.

Hi,Yes, and when I did, it said, "1 interrupted action" then basically failed.  It says, "1" as the status for every file in my documents folder of my oneDrive.

moderated OCR with HP office pro 8020

So far I can't get JAWS OCR (or Openbook) to scan with the HP Office pro 8020 all-in-one printer/scannner. Windows fax and scan works with it with no problem, but although JAWS lists the scanner as a source, says it is processing, gives no error message ... the scanner just sits there doing nothing. Any clue how to make the stinker work?

Thanks,

He needs to make it bigger, Clicking more details will do that.  Once that is done, ctrl-tab and ctrl-shift tab will change tabs no matter what has the focus.

Hi Stan,
Call up task manager with shift control + escape and control tab to the startup tab and uncheck it.
Assuming you are using windows 10.
In 7, you need to run a utility called msconfig with the run edit box which you get with windows + R.

I have never used slides, but I can't recreate your sheets problem with jaws on the latest windows version.  I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it is long past time to update that windows.

Hello all,

I am working with someone who has the following computer and problems with their access to both Google slides and Google sheets, just want to know if anyone has experienced this and if so, how they have been able to rectify the problems.

 

The computer is a Lenovo laptop with I5 processor, 16 GB RAM, Windows 10 version 1909.

Fusion 2021. They are using both chrome version 87 and the latest Microsoft Edge with Chromium engine.

 

Problem:

When accessing slides and going to the text boxes, the arrow keys do not provide verbal feedback. When typing in characters, JAWS reports what is being entered.

 

Problem with sheets is when pressing the alt+F to bring up the menu bar, then pressing the right arrow, JAWS looses the focus and ends back on the spreadsheet.

 

This has happened over the last couple of months including when fusion 2020 was being used.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions as this appears to happen on all browsers being used?

 

Many thanks and regards

Hi,I figured it out. I just had to let it do its thing.  I also tried to enable windows backup, but apparently its not very accessible with jaws or narrator.  They both told me "setting up" then had a button that was greyed out.   Is anyone on here, familiar with that feature?

Hi, Michelle and Jessica. I believe there is also a setting in JAWS that will determine how often a website will refresh. To find this,

 

1. Open the browser.

2. Press JAWS key plus V to enter Quick Settings.

3. In the search box that opens, enter the word refresh, and press ENTER on the result.

 

I believe the default is automatic, and I believe you can set the page not to refresh at all.

Hi again Jessica, thanks for your reply. I  really don’t need any assistance on open book or the pearl scanner. I have used them successfully for years. I was simply wanting to get feedback, good or bad, as the El Braille is still the new kid on the braille note taker block. It’s encouraging to hear good things about it from an actual user, and not just a sales rep. As for the system’s designs, components and abilities, I’ve been following the El Braille since its pre-Generation 5 version when it was a single unit 4th gen. system that had to have the processor and display  permanently housed together in a unit that didn’t allow the two to be separated. Its modular nature, real-world 40-cell display and word processor (like a lap top) are what I’ve wanted in a note taker ever since I was introduced to theBraille Lite back in 1996. Once again, thanks for your input.

Shalom,

I know this is the JAWS group, but this is a workaround for this issue:  Use NVDA during gaming.

I have not played with the JAWS screen curtain feature in several years, but if it turns back off upon right click and that can't be changed you're stuck.  Under NVDA the screen curtain can be made persistent, and there's even a warning when you do this that you need to remember how to turn it off again to get it out of persistent screen curtain while using NVDA.  Of course, if you exit NVDA to go back to JAWS, I believe the screen curtain function controlled by NVDA is turned off.

The Apex has always had Eloquence as another TTS option. I had one when I was working several years ago. I do not remember exactly where that setting is since I have not used a humanware braille device for several years.

Well, as a test I used the screen curtain application with JAWS and yes, if you use the right click on the mouse it does indeed turn the screen curtain off. However, just using the right click on the numpad does not disable the screen curtain function and if turned on, it stays on.  Yes, I did move the mouse around and the curtain stayed on if turned on.  The same is true if you use the application key on the keyboard.  Admittedly I don’t do gaming so never use the mouse.  To me this sounds more like wanting ones cake and eating it too. What’s the use of using JAWS if you can see the mouse cursor well enough to right click on something. I have used the screen curtain function at times but that was to prevent nosy family members from reading what I had on the screen. Generally I just close the lid on my laptop and make sure it is set not to turn off when closing the lid. Pardon my logic.

I know this is the JAWS group, but this is a workaround for this issue:  Use NVDA during gaming.

I have not played with the JAWS screen curtain feature in several years, but if it turns back off upon right click and that can't be changed you're stuck.  Under NVDA the screen curtain can be made persistent, and there's even a warning when you do this that you need to remember how to turn it off again to get it out of persistent screen curtain while using NVDA.  Of course, if you exit NVDA to go back to JAWS, I believe the screen curtain function controlled by NVDA is turned off.

hi Jessica 

Michelle Stevens here, only thing I can think of is if you go into settings of chrome, and turn off page refreshing? you may need to look at chrome in the settings menu on your device. 

Just a thought.

Hi,

 

Recently, I was listening to an episode of Mosen At Large, in which Jonathan Mosen discussed and demonstrated Writage, which is a plug-in for Microsoft Word, that allows the writing and editing of markdown.

I was just attempting to browse their website, using the latest version of Google Chrome, and Jaws on my elBraille, but focus keeps jumping all over the place.

I looked at the site on my pc the other night, and didn’t have this issue.

 

Can anyone try to shed some light on what might be happening here?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica
