Subject: Is Windows Mail now working with JFW

 

 

Bizarrely just a couple of days after sending a Support message to FS Windows Mail seems, touch wood, to have stabilised with Jaws.

I am typing this email in Mail with Jaws, something I have not been able to do for weeks.

I don’t know if it is anything to do with the new January update, though the first few times I checked this out Mail continues to crash with Jaws running anyway. Apparently no longer. .

Alternatively there might have been some unseen update on Windows I suppose.

The only thing I have been doing differently is that I had routinely also had thunderbird open in another window   because of the propensity of Mail to crash with Jaws. However I have just closed thunderbird and Mail is continuing to work with Jaws so it looks like it is not related..

Before I report this apparent improvement I wonder if the other people experiencing problems with Mail have also seen the problem resolved?

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:

 

I have recently downloaded Spotify.  I have learned how to create a playlist in Spotify, but I do not know how to add something to the playlist using JAWS.  Every place I go to to try to figure out how to do it keeps just saying to either drag or drop what you want to add or else click the button next to the selection or song.  I need the help of someone who knows how to use Spotify and who knows how to use JAWS in connection with it.  I am using Windows 10 and am using the latest version of JAWS.  Please help.

Hi Amir,
Jaws works fine with PayPal, and that is the best way to send money, over seas or locally.
PayPal has apps for IOS & Android, but I haven't tried them.

kevin meyers
 

Hello,

The other day I worked with Microsoft Accessibility to fix Windows10. I’m using the most recent version of Jaws2021 and Excel 2016. Since then I will be in Excel, press F2 to edit a cell and I cannot arrow left or right. It acts like there is only one word in the cell. I cannot even copy what is in the cell by selecting and then copying. Most cells have this problem and a few do not. What can I do to correct this problem?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi, all.  Ever since updating to the latest update to Jaws 2021, whenever I launch Outlook 365 on my desktop pc and my laptop pc from the desktop shortcuts, I hear a click when Outlook opens.  When Outlook opens I hear a click when the words opening Outlook is spoken.  I tried a Jaws repair on both machines and the click sill persists.  This anomaly is not annoying but it is noticeable.  I am running Windows 10 h2 pro on my desktop pc and Windows 10 h2 home edition on my laptop.  I am using my preferred Eloquence synthesizer.  Thanks.

Mario, while JAWS won't specifically identify or verify the text which has been selected these commands should still allow you to cut, copy, delete and format text until Vispero corrects the issue.

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte Hello. There is a workaround for the bug involving JAWS not identifying selected text when in Jarte. Until the issue has been fixed you can use the place markers feature to mark the beginning of a block of text with
ctrl+Windows+K. Next, move to the other end of the block of text and
press the layered keystroke insert+space key followed by the letter M.
Once this has been done you can delete, cut or copy the text. For best results it is good to first save the document before issuing these commands. Keyboard Manager can also be used to reassign these keys to ones of your choosing.

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte Mario, I am sorry to tell you that I am able to verify your friend's findings, at least with the January build of JAWS 2021. I've been a user of Jarte for many years and I'm quite certain that this is a new regression. I don't have JAWS

2020 on this laptop or else I'd compare the results with that version.

I'm wondering if someone running JAWS

2020 or earlier can confirm this behavior.

A few things to note. In order to get JAWS to speak the location of the caret or cursor from within Jarte enhanced editor mode should be disabled within Settings Center but please do this once Jarte has been opened to ensure that toggling this setting to off will not negatively impact another program.

For reference when you press the shift key with arrow key navigation the expected behavior is that you would hear the text which you are highlighting, along with the word "selected." With Jarte text is being selected but JAWS is silent while selection commands are being issued.

If others can confirm this behavior please do send a bug report to support@vispero.com <mailto:support@vispero.com> with as much specific information as you can

provide: version of JAWS, steps to reproduce, expected results and actual results. 6.2 is the latest version of Jarte.

Please direct any responses about this to the list and not to me privately as I am not able to provide individual support for Jarte or with this issue, in general.

an acquaintance is having a problem that I'm hoping someone can help.

he is using Jarte, and when he selects some text to delete, it is not read back as selected like it does using Wordpad. he would prefer using Jarte because he can start a new document by simply pressing control+n and then use control+tab to switch to a different document.

I helped him disable Enhanced edit in the configuration for JAWS 2020 so it is possible to review the text.

is there another setting that can be modified to fix this problem?

Let me clarify: I hear the “pop” or “tap” whenever I am in a Microsoft app, primarily Word documents, Mail, and such. I’m using Office 2016.

I thought it was my computer. I’ve been hearing a click now and then, not necessarily with mail only but with several programs I’m using. It isn’t annoying, but it can be distracting when you’re wondering if something is wrong. What I’m hearing sounds more like a tiny pop or tap.

 

(I would have never admitted it until others mentioned it.)

 

Cheerfully,

Hi, all.  Ever since updating to the latest update to Jaws 2021, whenever I launch Outlook 365 on my desktop pc and my laptop pc from the desktop shortcuts, I hear a click when Outlook opens.  When Outlook opens I hear a click when the words opening Outlook is spoken.  I tried a Jaws repair on both machines and the click sill persists.  This anomaly is not annoying but it is noticeable.  I am running Windows 10 h2 pro on my desktop pc and Windows 10 h2 home edition on my laptop.  I am using my preferred Eloquence synthesizer.  Thanks.

As I think I said in an earlier post, I still occasionally get the clicks with voice assistant disabled as well.

Michael:

 

I think this is due to the new Voice Assistant feature in Jaws 2021.

 

If you are not going to use it, and want to disable it, go to the utilities menu.  You’ll find it at the top of list of items in that menu.  Just un-check it, and the issue should be resolved, although I have to say that I still hear occasional clicks from Jaws even with the item unchecked.
