Van Lant, Robin
 

Sandra,

I’m only in Outlook 2016, so I don’t know if Outlook 2019 handles attachments a bit differently. Are  you allowing Outlook to open the attachment as a preview?  I find that doesn’t work well with speech.  I’d recommend using Shift Tab or Insert A to bring focus to the attachments, then copying the one you  want to your documents folder and opening it from there in whatever program is appropriate. If you are simply hitting enter on the attachment, it might be opening in preview mode right there in Outlook.  I recall this being a default setting in Outlook, but I changed that so long ago I’m not positive if I have the steps right.  I think you might want to disable “live preview” in the Outlook Options.  It’s under the General Tab.

Hello again, everyone.

 

I recently have imported my Internet Explorer favorites into Google Chrome, but currently, they are in a separate list called “imported from Windows Internet Explorer.

 

How can I migrate this list over to the main bookmarks bar in Google Chrome?

 

I did this once, but can’t recall how I did it.

 

I’m using the latest Jaws 2021 update on a Windows 10 PC here.

Al,

I think what you are looking for is to turn off the system tray notifications for Outlook.  Hit Alt F, then t to open the Outlook Options window.  Arrow down the Mail then tab through the setting choices.  There is a section or message arrival and a number of checkboxes.  I think I have all of them unchecked as I do not want any notification of new messages.  Tip: once you mark those checkboxes the way you want, use Shift Tab to cycle to the OK button.  There are so many settings in that window that you’ll be annoyed if you try to tab to the OK button.

David Griffith
 

That is fine to get that impression  and probably Speak On is not for you.

However to be clear for others possibly interested you are technically not at all correct.

Where content restrictions apply it is actually completely opposite to the issue you describe.

The main limitation for example with Tunein on Speak On is that it is unable to access UK Based BBC Radio national stations, though can still access  USA stations relatively unproblematically.

In my Audio Tutorials I provide a workaround for that particular problem if people still want to access national BBC Radio content through Speak On.

 

The Podcast Directory Speak On deploys is also a USA and not a UK service.

It is true that there is a virtual implementation of the BBC Sounds Podcast service  in the Speak On app which I think most people find valuable, but there are also link   to American services such as ACB Radio and other US. Providers especially in specific genres.

 

Of course you can also import any particular Podcast feed in addition to the pre-selected ones available from the provided web directory.

It still seemed a high percentage of what was on there was UK based.

Only the RNIB News and Magazine app is restricted to UK content, that is just 1 of the 10 possible apps available.

All the other apps can be accessed worldwide.

The Tune In radio app for example is US rather than UK based.

Speak On Media Suite provides a fully functional Podcast app alongside a raft of other extremely useful apps for use on a PC, including eBook reading, Daisy Book and Audio Book playing and access to the RNIB online News and Magazine service for people in the UK.

There is a slight learning curve which is why I produced a series of Audio tutorials on Speak On.

These Audio tutorials are accessible now from within the program itself under the optional VI Podcast App under the community section.

You can download Speak On  and learn more on

Rick, why not contact Spotify instead?

Spotify support might be able to offer some suggestions, or they may even be interested in making modifications for accessibility, if that’s what’s needed.

Do you use the free version of spotify? I might give it a gander sometime.

Hi Everyone,

I'm working with a student who is using Jaws 2021 and is enrolled in
an English course. The course is being delivered mostly online in
Blackboard, version 9.1, I believe.

The issue we are having is with the Discussion Board. The students
must post an introduction in the Discussion Board, and read and
respond to at least 2 other student introductions.

When the student clicks on "Create Thread" to start his introduction,
Jaws goes into "Application Mode. In this mode, the student can type
in the Subject line, but there seems to be no way to get to the editor
where the student must type in his introduction. Well, he can get to
it by tabbing twice, but once there, he is not able to type anything
in this editor, and there is no indication that he has entered the
editor. Jaws reads "Thread: Self introduction. – ENGL-102-AS07(1) -
2021 Win..." when tabbing twice from the subject field. We can confirm
that no text is being entered when typing by getting out of
Applications Mode and narrowing down to where the Word count is shown,
and it shows 0 words. The student is able to type his introduction in
Word, copy all the text, and then paste it into the editor, but can
not then read what he has pasted. We know the text has been pasted by
the Word count, and once he submits his post, we are able to open it
and read it with Jaws.
The same thing happens when trying to respond to another student's
introduction. He is able to read the introduction, press enter on
"Reply" but cannot type or even know when or if he is in the Editor.
He is able to type the response in Word, and copy and paste it into
the Editor, but it seems like sometimes pressing tab twice from the
subject field takes him into the editor, and sometimes he must tab 3
times, and since there is no indication that he is in the Editor, it
is really hit and miss and quite frustrating.

Are there settings in Blackboard that can be changed to allow Jaws to
work with the Editor in the Discussions area? Are there any Jaws
settings that can be changed to make this work?

I also experience this same issue on my PC, so it's not specific to
the student's computer. The problem also exists with NVDA. We are both
running Windows 10 and Jaws 2021.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

When you’re not reading a message and you receive a new message in Outlook, is the new message still read? If so, sounds like you’re getting a notification. If you want this turned off, do a search for notifications. You’ll be able to control what happens. I turned off Outlook notifications, because this was annoying me.

               Good evening everyone, 

 

When I’m in my inbox,  I’ve been experiencing the following issue.  It seems that while I’m reading a message that’s open,  I’ll get a notification sound that tells me that I’m receiving a new message, which reads the header of the incoming message. It will just start reading the message  on top of the one that I’ve been reading.  If anyone on list here has a fix for this problem,  please let me know how I can correct this problem from happening in the future. 

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Al
