SO I am in a pinch, I have a podcast that I will be in on Thursday.  I have never used zoom or teams.  Any suggestions on which one works better with jaws?


moderated Re: Microsoft Edge, no more favorites manager/have to do with context key now

 

So far it is still only part of the Canari version of Edge, there are two more steps after this, the developer and beta versions before it gets into the public build. Of course I am not entirely sure how quickly this goes and if, for example, Canari features first are added to the other programs or if they can go straight from being in Canari to a public release. I have tried it and it's fantastic, you just press Control + Shift + O and like in the Windows Start Menu start typing a few letters of your Favourite and then arrow down to select from a list of choices.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

I heard mention that Edge is experimenting with a new more accessible Favorites system that is available in the latest daily builds. I believe I saw mention of this about two weeks ago, therefore, it is probably making its way into the stable  insider builds soon.

If you feel like impacting this process, perhaps you want to download the latest insider build and use the feedback assistance.

Hello,

I just figured out, for those of you wondering where the favorites manager is in Edge, that … there’s not one … not really, anyway. When you press CTRL shift and o—of course altogether, don’t move anywhere in the tree view. Press your applications key and, for those of you wanting to “sort by name,” arrow down to choice 4 of however many choices it says. Of course, this is for JAWS users. The choice is “sort by name” and hit enter. Just my teaching tip for a little bit/haven’t put anything up for a while, so …

While in your browser of choice open Jaws Quick settings, Insert + V, and type, detect, into the search field.
 
Wait for a second or 3 for the list to populate and the checkbox / option you want is, Language detect change, if this is checked uncheck it with the spacebar.
 
Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.
 
You can also turn this feature off in Settings Center or Settings Center default all applications by typing, detect, in the search field.  But, the feature will be called, Detect language, in the Settings Center.
 
Use, Settings Center while in an individual application or Quick Settings.
 
Use Settings Center default all applications to turn it off in all applications / programs.
 
To access Settings Center press, Insert + 6, on the number row.
 
To access, Settings Center default all applications, press, Insert + 6, then press, control, shift + D.
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi,

You have detect languages on, which is normal behavior.

Open the Jaws setting center with insert+6 on the numbers row.

Press control+shift+d for the default settings, or just leave it on your web settings.

Type Language in the edit field and arrow down to Detect Language On, and hit the space bar to turn it off and hit enter.

 

You should be good to go.

Paul Faucheux
 

hi mitchel i would suggest to go to utilities menu and then go to sound cards and select the Bluetooth headset as the  audio source for jaws. as far as the microphone issue go to sound in control pannel and under playback devices make sure that the webcam is set as default device. and do the exact same thing under recording devices.

Regarding Bluetooth headset- I am trying to connect my bt headset for isolating jaws messages and then have audio from a zoom conference coming thru my external speakers. I also am using a webcam as a microphone because my desktop does not have an internal microphone. I have not been able to get everything running at the same time. Any suggestions?

This means that there are accents or it may be switching to another language. Try stopping Jaws and arrowing, manually, read past the spot.

Hope this helps?

moderated Re: Can I get My messages to go to a specific folder automatically?

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Rules and alerts doesn’t always work as I’ve tried it. For me, at least, sometimes the dialogue comes up that “one or more rules couldn’t be activated due to ...” Also, some of my dialogues say “the folder xxx has exceeded its storeage capasities.” I don’t know what that’s all about, and you’ll just have to manually move the messages into the folders. Sorry about that. I’ve gotten Rules and Alerts to work about a couple times, but if you put another rule in for a message, it adds it—so you could have Win10 and then subsiquent numbers behind that for how many more rules you’ve created for the folder.

 'If you are using Outlook, it has the ability to create rules that would automatically move emails from a particular address into a folder and you can assign a different sound to those messages.
You would want to create a folder first, but this is at a level that would be hard to write out instructions for.
Microsoft accessibility would likely help you with this.
Or maybe someone knows a good online tutorial.

Thunderbird is one among many e-mail clients, e.g., Outlook, eM Client, Windows Live Mail (now out of support), etc.  It is not an e-mail service provider like Gmail.

It is available at no cost, and has been one of the Mozilla family of programs, like Firefox is, for years now.

Loy, what follows is not a criticism, but an observation that's a direct offshoot of yours.

Accessibility of a piece of software cannot be defined due to a lack of knowledge about how to use it.  Virtually any piece of software one is completely unfamiliar with is not accessible under that definition.  But if you know that there exist many users of that software who are also screen reader users, it is absolutely accessible.

Not knowing how to use something is in no way the same as something being designed badly and unable to be accessed via a screen reader.   If you cannot get to functions and use them with a screen reader, that's inaccessible.

Thanks for this tutorial. I may be tempted to try TB again. In the past, I found TB to be not accessible due to lack of knowledge of how to navigate the app.

You can get quite a lot of what you want from the Jaws speech history.

After going through a page for a while, press insert+space, then the letter h.

What comes up will be at least the Jaws speech up to a certain point.  I do not recall how much you can gather at once, but it is quite a lot.

 

For example, After writing the above paragraph I brought up the jaws history and I could have copied it and your message into the clipboard.

Hello All,

 

I am using jaws 2021 on Windows 10 and both are fully patched.

 

I am working with ux designers to get some sites to be not only accessible but usable.  That is they met all the requirements to have  the page accessible but when using a screen reader it is not easy to navigate.  So am working to get the pages usable.  My ask is does jaws have the function to record everything that is read out when navigating a page and saving it in a form like mp3 that I can provide to the ux developer?

 

 

Thanks, Abraham

Abraham,

Is the SpeechHistory something you can use?

Press ins-space and then h.

The SpeechHistory will hold the last 500 spoken text.
This was 50 or 100 in earlier versions of jaws.

Regards, Marten
