Hi to the list.

When using Chrome, and going down to Favorites, it’s very convenient to right arrow and be right in that nice vertical list.

In Edge, when you go into Favorites, it is some kind of Tree View, and it is not as slick or quite as easy to navigate.

I have another PC on which Edge is displaying its former behavior, just like Chrome,  when viewing Favorites.

What’s going on with Edge and Favorites?

Thanks for any observations.

I’ve noticed this as well. What happened? I ask myself as I try navigating tables now. Even though some might have checkboxes, you have to go word by word to get to the checkbox and use it. Again, what happened? Even on a Word document which contains a school callendar, I can’t use the table layer/the controls and tables feature. Really stinks, so how to fix?

Hi all.

Using Jaws 2021 newest bill as of the one this week.

It was supposed to fix some things in the Tables recognition and it sure made a mess of them, at least on my computer. I am using W10 H2. If I go to a site that has a table in it, Jaws reads all of the cells in a single sentence As an example before it read:

Tom

127

doing this in a column view.

Now it says"

straight across the board.

I have gone into the quick settings for that site , a Chrome site, and tried changing the 3 settings in the Table menu with no change. I unloaded version 2021 and went back to 2020 and all was well in there.

Came back to 2021 and was back to being messed up.

Has anybody else had this issue, or if you have, any input on how to get it to work properly?

Hello everyone,

Would you like to make the most of your refreshable braille display with JAWS on Windows? Are you looking to learn more about how braille can be used to make effective presentations? If so, the Braillists Foundation can help!

This coming Tuesday (26 January), join us on Zoom at 7:30 PM in the UK for a session entitled "Using Braille on Windows". You will find out how to pair a windows PC with a braille display, which screen readers support braille output and some tips and tricks for using braille output.

Then, on Tuesday 9 February, we have a session entitled "Using Braille as a Presentation Tool", which will cover using a braille display with Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides. We'll guide you through how braille output works with these applications and the ways in which braille output can enable you to deliver more effective presentations.

The sessions are completely free of charge, will last an hour (ending at 8:30 PM in the UK), and there will be plenty of time for questions. If you'd like to join us, please register at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwoceivqz8rGtbEERfYGlXFSR2eIqx-oc9o

If this time isn't convenient for you, fear not: the session will be recorded and made available at: https://www.braillists.org/media

It will also be published via our Braillecast podcast – simply search for "Braillecast" in your podcast client of choice, or ask your smart speaker to "play Braillecast". We are also available on the Victor Reader range of DAISY players and the internet radios from British Wireless for the Blind.

Registering for these sessions also entitles you to attend other sessions in our Tuesday evening series, which are all led by experts in their fields. For more information, please visit: https://www.braillists.org/events

If you have any questions about these sessions or are struggling to register, please email help@...

If you would prefer to attend by telephone, the Meeting ID is: 885 6175 4102

We very much look forward to welcoming you to a Braillists event soon – and if you know someone else who's not on this list, but who might nonetheless appreciate hearing about these sessions, please spread the word!

Best wishes,

Matthew Horspool

Howdy Bill,
 
As I stated the other day, I can also access the list of categories I posted earlier by typing, more, into the search field and tabbing a couple of times to be at the top of the list.  This is using forms mode set to automatic.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Bill,

 

Using J2021 and Edge latest, whether using forms mode in automatic or manual mode I'm not finding what you're referring to as a Main settings button.  This what I get navigating by button using manual forms mode.

 

Add Profile button

More actions button menu

Sign in button

Passwords button

Payment info button

Address and more button

Import browser data button

Profile preferences button

No more buttons found

 

But, if I turn forms mode to automatic, 

open settings, navigate to, Search settings edit

close forms mode with the PC key,

then down arrow to, Settings categories,

and press enter a tree view opens and then I can down arrow to many other categories listed below.

Hi, David. One thing can make Microsoft's Settings behave sort of like that of Google Chrome's Settings. Once you reach the Settings page in edge, if you press the B key a few times, do you see a button labelled something like Main Settings Menu? If so, press SPACE or ENTER on that button, and you will see headings for all the settings.

 

If you don't see this button, try the following. Once you are in Settings (not Settings and More), TAB once, and see if you see a Settings tree view for which JAWS announces Settings Tree View. If you see this category list, all you need do is Arrow up and down to reach a particular Settings category. Once you find the category you wish to explore, simply press ENTER.

Hi Robin and others,

 

Thanks for the question and ideas of ways to find settings you can change. While the new Edge is very nice in many respects, procedures for accessing all the settings you can change is not one of them. It makes no intuitive sense. By contrast, the Chrome Settings page is much easy to figure out for anybody who knows how to navigate by headings. I hope at some point, the Microsoft folks reconfigure their Settings page so it can be navigated similar to how the Chrome Settings page is navigated.

David

moderated Re: punctuation when reading by word

Cohn, Jonathan
 

I believe this is an application function and not a JAWS function. There is a option in quick settings and perhaps regular JAWS settings called "smart word" which effect if you ask a word to be spoken if it will speak the word to the next punctuation, or or until the next space. My experience with this is it effects the reading, but not the movement. I generally, read by sentence or paragraph, and then if I need to drill down and read a specific word, will jump over to a braille display.

Hello Mike. Thanks for taking the time to answer the question. I'm sorry I didn't make it clear. When I say reading by word, I mean reviewing the document left to right by word, insert right arrow for each word. Reviewing the document that way, in certain applications, punctuation is included with each word, but other times it is treated as another word, so I have to press the keystroke twice or three times to get past some heavy areas of punctuation.
Does that clarify my problem?

Hi Robin and others,

 

Thanks for the question and ideas of ways to find settings you can change. While the new Edge is very nice in many respects, procedures for accessing all the settings you can change is not one of them. It makes no intuitive sense. By contrast, the Chrome Settings page is much easy to figure out for anybody who knows how to navigate by headings. I hope at some point, the Microsoft folks reconfigure their Settings page so it can be navigated similar to how the Chrome Settings page is navigated.

 

Regards,

David

Hi Andrew,
 
Yes, it did, and does.  Did you try changing your punctuation settings at all to see if it would help?  If this doesn't help try changing the speech and sound scheme for the application.  The keystroke to access the list of speech and sound schemes is,
 Jaws key, alt + S.
 
This will take some experimentation and I do understand what you are wanting, but what you want and what Jaws settings can provide or, lack thereof as far as settings go is all we have to work with unless other scripts are written for the type of reading you desire.
 
If you find a speech and sound scheme that is pretty close to what you want you could possibly modify the sound scheme to do exactly what you are wanting but again, this will also take some, and maybe a lot of experimentation.  If you do decide to modify a speech and sound scheme keep track of the defaultnames / titles  because if you create / modify a default it will call it modified and if it's done more than once it'll a add a number as well.
 
Example:  default scheme name, Classic, and after being modified, Classic modified  or  Classic modified 2...

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hello Mike. Thanks for taking the time to answer the question. I'm sorry I didn't make it clear. When I say reading by word, I mean reviewing the document left to right by word, insert right arrow for each word. Reviewing the document that way, in certain applications, punctuation is included with each word, but other times it is treated as another word, so I have to press the keystroke twice or three times to get past some heavy areas of punctuation.
Does that clarify my problem?
