Hi listers:

 

Anyone on the list use the program called BARD Express provided by the National Library Service?

 

Reason I ask is that, it seems, JAWS doesn’t read the status line automatically.

 

I can find it with the touch cursor, by turning it on, and pressing ctrl+home, then right arrow 3 times to find the progress bar, and one more right arrow to read the download queue information.

 

Anyone know why JFW doesn’t read that status line automatically?

 

Thanks!

Van Lant, Robin
 

I just did a recurring meeting a minute ago in Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.12527.21416.  Note that I have the retail version of 2016 at home and the process is slightly different.  First thing to note is whether, when you open a meeting invitation, you first land in the Title field or in the To field.  The order of the fields in invitations and appointments changed in a recent update for my subscription version at work. If the title first appears, you’ll now see a button just before the Location button that says “Make recurring” and allows you to access the same recurring meeting settings as before.  I do also see the Recurrence” button on the main “Meeting” ribbon, which is how I used to access the settings and is still the way I do it on my retail version of 2016.  I do not hear JAWS voice a keyboard sequence to get to this button, so you’ll just have to tab to it. 

 

Let me know if that works for you.

Hello,

Hi list,

 

I am not sure if this is related to JAWS, but the issue has occurred since I installed the latest JAWS version.

 

Just a few seconds after I log into my PC, JAWS volume turns lower, regardless of how it has been set. After doing some settings exploration, I found out that the issue is caused by something called Dolby Audio, which is all the time getting turned off. Now, I go and turn it on and everything works fine, but it turns off soon, and that is quite annoying!

 

I would appreciate any suggestion for resolving the issue.

 

With best wishes,

Gezim

Did you try using the JAWS cursor? I don’t know why the print button wasn’t accessible tabbing around, but since it’s a standard print dialogue, this cursor should still help you move the mouse pointer to the correct position and click on it.

You will probably have tried this but have you tried just using jaws virtual find to find the print text and then pressing space on the text?

A lot of times nowadays I find sites where pressing enter does not do the job and you have to press space – especially on what I suspect are clickable elements. Often these elements are not reported as either links or buttons but pressing space on them works anyway, especially with download elements.

Also there have been a number of issues for me in activating elements with jaws using Chrome, most especially with financial transactions pages. I am no longer able to make payments either through PayPal or my Bank using Chrome and Jaws. Elements either do not show up or become unresponsive when activated.

The good news for me personally is that when I load these problematic pages into FireFox these problems completely disappear.

Chrome is still my default but whenever I now come across a page which misbehaves I now just close Chrome and reload the offending page in FireFox.

Also sad to report but on occasion you will find better compliance with Narrator than Jaws on some pages. I was having to use Narrator with my bank site before I discovered using Firefox  as the workaround for Jaws.

To be honest nowadays I can no longer rely just on Jaws – I also use not just Narrator and NVDA as well as different browser solutions.

Good afternoon listers.  First, using latest version of jaws and windows respectively.  Anytime I try to use jaws to read any mail in the windows mail program, windows live, the program closes.  Having to use jaws counterpart; NVDA to write this message.  Program works fine with counterpart.  Does anyone else have this problem? I mentioned this to freedom scientific yesterday.  If anyone else has this problem, you might want to pass it along to FS.  Have happy holidays, new year and stay safe.

What about the GetJFWLang function:

Gets the three letter abbreviation of the JAWS Language that is
currently in use. This is the language of the resource DLLs that are
loaded by JAWS. This is not necessarily the same as the current speech
synthesizer language.

Hi guys,
I have stopped using JFW actively as my main screenreader, but I still greatly love and respect this software (no, I don't use NVDA).
I am writing a script for JAWS which might be very useful for some people, but some stuff in it must be language dependent unfortunately. Is there a way I can get the JAWS language via script or better yet, a language of Windows? I know there is a scripting list somewhere, but I ask here since it is a relatively simple question.

to get the default language of Windows, you can use the function
:GetSystemDefaultLang.
It Gets the three letter abbreviation of the System Default language of
the Windows User Interface.
:Returns String Returns a string containing the three letter
abbreviation of the System Default language of the Windows User Interface.

Sandra,

         My suggestion would be using the JAWS links list feature, and activating it from there.  I really don't understand why you're having the problem you're having, but trying another method to gain focus on the link would be my first choice.

So, now that I have you here, how do I get the focus to jump back to where it should be? I try to home in again on the link, press enter, and end up with the same issue... sigh...

David,

           That's how it should work, though it's been ages since I last activated a Mute this Topic link in an e-mail message.  If you are not logged in on the Groups.io website, you will be prompted to enter your login ID (the e-mail address with which you've subscribed) and password, as topic muting is something managed under your account level settings, but everything is already "filled in" as far as the actual information to mute a specific topic.  If you have never established a password for your Groups.io account, then see:  Establishing a Groups.io Website Account Password If You’ve Been an E-Mail Only User (docx)


            What Sandra describes sounds like focus has somehow jumped back to the Reply to Sender link rather than remaining on the Mute this topic link.
