Hi Jessica,

No I didn't try Narrator, but did try Edge, and it didn't work either. Firefox, however did work, so problem solved

Thanks for your response.

Subject: Jaws & Discussion Board in Blackboard
 
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,

Russell

Hi Tom,

 

Let me chime in to agree with others on a strong preference for continuing to use the IE favorites rather than the clunky bookmarks in Chrome. One thing to add: when you open something from the Favorites folder, it will open in your default browser, not IE, even though you created them in IE. I very much hope that Microsoft changes its current Edge favorites to using the favorites folder in the user folder soon. Although called favorites in Edge, the whole structure is that of bookmarks in Chrome. If the big selling point of Edge is that it is supposedly part of the Windows operating system, then it should use the Favorites folder in the user folder. Creating favorites is the only thing I still use IE for.

Try hitting f12 to start a save as and see if you get any different results.

 

Otherwise, it sounds like the sort by groups is on in your Windows Explorer, or File Explorer as it is called now.

If that is the case, perhaps do a search on the web for changing the sort by options in File Explorer.

Hello Listers,

My MS Office updated automatically the other night.  I am currently using Microsoft Word Subscription Version 16.0.13530.20198.  This update has significantly changed how the menus work when saving a document.  Previously I could do an alt F and then hit A to do a save as.  This would bring up a dialogue box in which I could  shift tab twice and get a list of recently used folders from which I could use first letter navigation to get to a folder to open and complete the saving process.  Now when I shift tab twice I get a question about making pinned folders.  If I arrow down that list I can see folders that I have previously used but they are separated by "today", "this week" and "last week".  This same set up occurs when trying to open a document in word.  First letter navigation does not work in this configuration.  I am guessing that some view or feature that I normally use has been changed in the update.  Any ideas about what I need to do to get back to just having a recent folders or documents list that is not distinguished by today, this week and so on?

Thanks for any and all assistance.

I understand what is happening, but don't have solutions yet. The issue is that Google Docs is doing echoing with "live" regions, and JAWS is also doing echoing of characters.  
You could always adjust echo  and if you create a special Google Docs profile that could be added to the Settings center for that profile. There also might be a setting in Google Docs to adjust typing echo.

Until Microsoft does this though, presumably there's no reason why VFO couldn't create a script to bring up a list of favourites as they do links, headings etc.

Hi Tom and others,

 

This is not a direct answer to your question, but I have always found that editing a contact group in Outlook is a big pain and not worth the trouble, especially if the list is fairly big and people are frequently needing to be added or deleted to the group. If you use Excel, even at just a basic level, it is much simpler. You can maintain the list of these addresses in Excel, easily adding or deleting members as needed.

 

To address an email message, In the Excel file were you have listed the addresses in a column, simply select the list by starting on the top address and pressing Shift down arrow until you have selected all the addresses. If the list is long, from the top, instead press Control Shift down arrow and that will select all the way to the bottom of the list.

Now press Control C to copy.

Open Outlook and press Control N to start preparing a message. Then press Control V in either the To or BCC field to paste them all in. Then complete the rest of the message and send it off.

I am perfectly happy to share addresses for other groups on any given group, as there are many times where any one given group may serve as a "feeder" for the other.

That being said, I'm also tired of having to do so, so I will again give the step-by-step directions for any Groups.io member to find the group email addresses for some random group that they need to search for first.

1. Navigate to the Groups.io Find a Group Page.

2. Navigate to the Search edit box.  Enter a couple of search terms that narrow things down.  In this case using [Office Accessibility] will work fine.

3. Use the H browsing shortcut to jump from heading to heading.  The first is the search result list name, "Publicly Listed Groups," and all subsequent ones are links to the home page of the group itself.  In this case if the two previously mentioned search terms are used, the list is only one entry long and the link to the home page of that group appears.  Once you've landed on the group you think you might want, activate the link to its Groups.io home page.

4. On every Groups.io home page for a group, there is a section called, "Group email addresses," that contains exactly what its name implies.  I use the screen reader search (INS+CTRL+F) to search for subscribe, and land directly on the group's subscribe address, after I've taken the time to look at the group description to make certain it's the one I really want.  Of course, the unsubscribe, post, etc., addresses are all there.

Yes, That's the way I do it, too, John. I have made a shortcut to the Favorites folder located in C:\users\"Username"\, and can select any favorite from that folder, or drop newly created shortcuts into that folder. The thing I might warn of is that after August of this year, Internet Explorer will no longer be supported. If they take Internet Explorer away in a future update of Windows 10, that Favorites folder may go away. So I would suggest copying that folder to another location before Internet Explorer is removed from Windows 10, and there is a chance that Windows will remove that folder as well.

Marty Hutchings
 

Rahul, If you have access to your written text as in a word or text document, you might try editing it in such a way that manageable chunks are on one line. I do this with voice over scripts. I will only have a few words on a line, usually ending where a natural break in the speech would be like where a coma or period exists. Then I have JAWS read at a speed that is confortable and use my down arrow to read line by line and speak as I hear a few words. This does take some practice, but it can be done as I know some broadcasters that do this very thing.
HTH.

I assume you are talking about something like a phone script for a
call center or the like.

If so I suspect that is a tough one. I might suggest you find some
list dedicated to simultaneous language translation (that is, people
who can listen to someone speak and at the same time translate to some
other language).

If there is some way to learn that rather than some people can while
others simply can't then however they manage to get both parts of
their brain to not override would seem to apply to this situation as
well.

Hello,

I have the following questions:

First, I normally listen to JAWS at 65%. Even after slowing it down,
if I try to listen to the text line-by-line, I find that by the time I
am done reading and have to speak, I am only able to retain 40-50% of
what I have heard. So I end up losing some content.
On the other hand, if I listen to JAWS one word at a time, I find that
I end up being much too slow, such that my speech sounds disjointed
and halting.

Second, I am wondering how your experience differs between verbally
reproducing new content [i.e. material you have never read before]
versus content you are already familiar with.
Put simply, would it pay to familiarize oneself with the content to be
reproduced beforehand?

Third and lastly, can you suggest some pointers for building up one's
capacity, to be able to get better at doing this i.e. listening to
JAWS and speaking out what it is reading at the same time?

Hi, Tom. To move the bookmarks imported from Internet Explorer,

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O to open Bookmarks Manager.

3. TAB to the folders list, and open Imported from Internet Explorer.

4. TAB to the list of bookmarks, and select all with CONTROL plus A.

5. Press the Applications key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to
CUT, and press ENTER.

6. Open the folder to which you want to move the bookmarks.

7. Perform a paste operation with CONTROL plus V.

That should move them all at once to the new folder.

Google Chrome

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.

Thanks for any help.

Tom Behler
