And note that this whole thing is a bad idea, Each time you run a
battery low (even if not to 0) the less charge it will be able to take
and so you will get less running time. Much better to run plugged in
if that is at all possible.

Jaws won't tell you unless someone has written a script, but Windows can
alert you if you go in the sound scheme settings, and make sure a sound file

that you can actually hear is connected to the appropriate events, like
Critical battery and I think there is a low battery.
You just need to go through the events and find the appropriate ones for
your needs.

moderated Microsoft Office 2019 and latest Jaws

Jim L
 

Heya folks,

 

Was just wondering if this is happening to anybody else with Microsoft Office 2019 and latest Jaws.

 

One out of 4 times I exit out of Outlook 2019, Outlook crashes and then pops up the dialog box to choose my email account I want loaded again. I have tested this with NVDA a couple of times and there’s no Outlook 2019 crash when using that screen reader.

 

Anybody else encounting this? Initially I thought an Outlook update may fix it but am more thinking now its Jaws causing it.

 

Am using windows 10 Pro, I’ve also created a new database as suggested in a forum but Outlook still crashes the same.

 

Any input or feedback from other Office 2019 users will be appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

I've only had one real problem in the last year and it was fixed with a new version of JFW.  I like the facebook container extension for firefox, and the way its menus work.  If it could chromecast, I'd use it for everything.

I have had the same issue happen with both 2020 and 2021. I can initially navigate to a page, however, in the instance of Google, or another website that I am testing, when I enter text into a search field and do a search.

OK so since my last question went so well here’s another one.  I have to be able to accurately get a word count with my documents for one particular client.  I can have documents with as few as 100 words or as many as 15,000 words.  It used to be that when I opened a document I could immediately on opening the document use the JAWS key combination of JAWS Key plus Page Down and get the page and word counts.  Now JAWS says “page one of” however many pages followed by “spelling and grammar check no errors.”  How do I get it to continue saying the word count in the document instead of using the virtual ribbon and layered menus?  I know I can always do alt, R, P for proofing, then W for word count.  From there I have to enable to virtual cursor and get the word count from the dialogue that pops up.  Any suggestions on how to make this process a bit faster and go back to the way JAWS used to say things?  Should I turn off the spelling and grammar checker as documents are being typed?  Does that even have any effect on what I’m doing/attempting to do?

What I find the easiest way is to tap the Windows key, and type "change system" and change system sound should show up so you can just hit enter.
Then tab over to the list of program events and arrow down.
There are two, Critical Battery alarm and Low Battery alarm.

The defaults are not very loud or noticeable.
You may want to grab and alternate .wav file and put it in the c:\windows\media folder so you can use it.

Hi all,
I've decided that I should start using my laptop unplugged and only
charge it when I'm not using it, and well I know how to check the
battery power I'm wondering will Jaws tell me when my battery is
getting low or will I just have to keep checking? I'm using the latest
Jaws and Windows 10. Thanks Madison

Jaws won't tell you unless someone has written a script, but Windows can alert you if you go in the sound scheme settings, and make sure a sound file that you can actually hear is connected to the appropriate events, like Critical battery and I think there is a low battery.
You just need to go through the events and find the appropriate ones for your needs.

"Why, what did she tell you?"

This sounds like another among many very badly designed forms.

A correctly designed form should announce the field (and its type, e.g. checkbox) when you land in it, and in a way that's descriptive enough to let you know what it is you're supposed to do if it's not self explanatory.

Many people create "forms" in word that are nothing more than what would be printed out for pencil/pen and paper filling out.  That's not a form, in any meaningful sense, that's accessible or able to be easily filled out by anyone in Word itself.

Oh actually I hit enter and I seemed to be able to type, but when I hit down arrow, Jaws wouldn’t read the other fields.

Hi,

I have a document that I have to sign and fill out in Word. When I navigate with Jaws 2019, I hear Participant’s name, rich text field. Click or tap to enter text. Do I just hit enter? Also how do you make a signature?
