Hi again all,
I've noticed that when I click on an email address on a website the message gets
sent from my old email, other then going and manually changing it, is there any
way to make the change so that it's permanent? Also, within the treeview of
folders in gmail there's a folder called important, messages seem to be just
going in there automatically, is there a way to stop this? Using the latest
Jaws, Outlook 365, and Windows 10 version 2004. Thanks again for all your
patience!!!!

using Eloquence with JAWS, to me, it sounds more like en dash.

To echo what Bill pointed out, sighted readers will be a bit confused by
someone using a simple hyphen between words since it is visually shorter
in length, rather than the m Dash the autocorrection makes.  Better to
leave it to autocorrect and just know why JAWS is saying m dash.  I
agree; at least with Vocalizer Nathan, it sounds more like “on dash”.

It is saying “m dash” because a hyphen with a space on each side is an
“M dash” WHICH MEANS THE SHORT DASH.

If it were a long dash, it would say “N dash.”

So, Jaws is accurately reporting the punctuation name.

A hyphen, in strict terms, is used to join two words together, so if you
write hello-goodbye  with no spaces jaws, like most screen readers says
“dash” when it really should say “hyphen”.

Dashes are used to separate words kind of like parenthesis.

A lot of authors seems to be using dashes in place of parenthesis, which
irritates me, but what is one going to do.

That is why when you split a word with more than one syllable between
lines you use a hyphen not a dash because the hyphen denotes that the
word is supposed to be joined.

But screen readers are not grammar teachers.

Hello,

I’m using Windows10 , Jaws2021 and Outlook2021 most recent versions.

Since the most recent update with Jaws2021 I will use a hyphen and when
it is between two letters with a space between it sounds like is saying
on. I then delete it and it then says dash.

Here is an example:

Hello – goodbye

Does this say on between the words? Has anyone encountered this issue?

Below is an example when I type the same as above, then delete the

By the way, the n dash is a dash which is longer than a simple hyphen. By unchecking this check box in the autoformat tab, the hyphen is no longer replaced by the longer dash. This is why it no longer says n dash.

Hi, Kevin and Don. To stop this behavior in Outlook and Office,

 

1. Open the Outlook Options dialog box.

2. click File > Options.

3. click the Mail in the left bar, and then click the Spelling and Autocorrect button in the Compose messages section.

4. In the Editor Options dialog box, click the Proofing in the left bar, and then click the AutoCorrect Options button in the AutoCorrect options section.

5. In the AutoCorrect dialog box, go to the AutoFormat As You Type tab, and uncheck the Hyphens (--) with dash (—) check box, And then click the OK button.

6. Click the OK buttons to close all dialog boxes to finish saving the settings. From now on, the hyphen will be spoken as dash instead of n dash.

moderated Re: Request email id for contacting Vispero

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Well, it is very hard to tell from the original notes, but if this application is not providing any data to JAWS in standard mode or with touch cursor (press shift-numpad plus) or JAWS cursor. then scripts from Freedom Scientific will not do much good. Unless there are millions of users of this tool, or  if the developer pays for the development of scripts.  Developing scripts for a new complex application can take 100's hours, one essentially has to reverse engineer the way the application talks to Windows and then create new interactions. Not to mention, if the application does not work well with a screen reader than it probably does not work well with other access technologies.
** More details below if interested **   
JAWS uses Microsoft Accessibility API like MSAA and UIA to interpret what the application puts on the screen. If the development environment used by the developer does not support or poorly supports these protocols, or if the vendor creates their own widgets without providing support for these API, or if the program locks out accessibility programs from communicating with it then there is little to nothing that a AT vendor can do.
JAWS scripts are great for making lists that can be seen with API, but are not navigated intuitively be able to be navigated with arrow keys, or with adding ways to jump to a part of the user interface, but if the vendor is expecting that JAWS will talk to the program with a "com" interface and have its own proprietary way of user interface specifically designed for the blind, that would be hard to develop and harder to maintain.

Hi Bill and all,

This is a problem that I also have.

I don't have game bar switched on. Sometimes I'll be typing away and when I hit the letter 'g' I'll end up somewhere else - maybe in Outlook, maybe on the internet - could be anywhere except the game bar.

I restart Jaws and the problem goes away ... until next time.

I thought it was an oddity in my Jaws software.

Thankyou guys
Bill I didn't find Gaming. I have turned off Game Mode and Xbox Game
bar, but the problem persists.
Pamila and David, this happens quite frequently and hence rebooting or
restarting JAWS would not be a convenient option.
Look forward to other views.

Hi all,
I am unable to type the letter 'g' while using JAWS 2021. I have to
press windows + g. Only then the problem gets resolved. I have used
default mode in JAWS and also turned off Game mode as per Freedom
Scientific help desk's suggestions to no avail.
Humbly request solutions as this is quite irritating.
Thankyou

Hi Albert,
 
I've never had an annual subscription so I can't answer your question but, there's 1 way to find out if the latest update will install or not.  Click on the link below to download the latest installer and run it to see if this latest update will install or not.
 
32 & 64 bit download link:
 
https://jaws2021.vfo.digital/2021.2012.57.400/4AD070D7-B284-424D-97A4-85ACBB926A1E/J2021.2012.57.400-any.exe
 
What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2012.57 (January 19, 2021)
This update addresses a few key issues that were reported shortly after the January 2021 release.
To download the latest release, click on the link above
 
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
list of 8 items
• A new feature was introduced earlier this month, designed to let a user change the volume of JAWS speaking or the system volume itself using a layered
keystroke: INSERT+SPACE, V followed by J for JAWS or S for System. Since this change, Eloquence users reported hearing Ticks when reading and typing, especially
around the letter O. We also had reports of the volume randomly changing when reading documents or web pages. These issues are now resolved.
•  Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR was not starting the Voice Assistant in JAWS or Fusion.
• The JAWS voice commands to speak faster or slower now adjusts the speech in larger increments.
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading table headings in Excel.
• Added a new JAWS Dictionary entry for "DocuSign."
• When spell checking a document in Word, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating by word through the text containing
the error.
• Resolved an issue where attachments were not being reported correctly in the Danish version of Outlook 2019.
• In the Italian version of JAWS, addressed an issue where the keystrokes to access the Braille and Text Viewer layer, as well as the Volume layer, were
not working as expected.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: Question regarding yesterdays latest jaws update.

Good morning everyone, 

 

I would like too ask the following  question as it relates to the latest Jaws update that someone posted yesterday.  Whenever I go to the jaws updates,  It tells me that I have the latest version of jaws installed which came out in out sometime in mid December, that was jaws 2021. Here’s what I’m wondering.  Both me and my girlfriend are using the version of jaws, where we use the    version that is the lease too own one that we pay a subscription for  every year.  Does it make a differents whether or not     the latest updates for jaws if you own the full license of jaws,  or will the latest version    of jaws that came out yesterday, be installed without any problem.

Here you go,
 
For Jaws users,I found that you can fast forward & reverse through the, File Types list, by turning Key Repeat on. 
1. To do this, after the file types list is loaded up open the Settings Center with, Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, and if you get a new configuration
message select the, Okay, option and press the spacebar. Arrow down to, User closed, and right arrow to open.
 
2. Down arrow to, Key Repeat not checked, and press the spacebar to check this.
 
3. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.  Now if you hold the Tab key down it will fast forward through this long list of file types and if you
use, Shift + tab, you can go backwards.
It's funny listening to Jaws fast forward through this long files type list because it sounds like fast forwarding a cassette tape.  LOL 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: How to move quickly down the list of file extensions to change the default?

Hello List,

 

I’m going through System Settings and using:

   Choose default apps by file type

 

The long list of file extensions are arranged alphabetically. I can move only one extension at a time using the Tab key. These extensions are preceded with the “point” character.

 

Is there a way to jump quickly to the .M3U extension?

I’d like to change it’s default.

 

Thank You,

 

Peter T
