Are there shortcut keys for navigating a listbox, such as going to the first or last item? Or go to the Nth item?

Even as I write this message I’ve been chucked out to the calendar reminder!

I use the front-end Carlos developed for it. That makes it very easy to convert between formats without even seeing Caliber. If you would like, I can make it available to you.

If you mean the calibre e-book reader, no, accessibility has not improved.

It is usable (barely) for the pattern I exercise which is basically just format conversion and occasional metadata correction but it is far from a pleasant experience.

NVDA has changed and improved a lot in the last few years, so you may want to revisit it. Or not. But it is quite good these days.

Jason White
 

Which versions of JAWS and Microsoft Outlook are you using? I haven’t experienced this at all with successive JAWS versions and Outlook for Office 365.

Also, it might be worth testing with the JAWS Default Alternate User Directory Mode (Insert-Space, Z), which temporarily loads a default configuration. (Using the same command a second time restores your settings). If the problem doesn’t occur in this mode, then you’ve narrowed it down to something in your JAWS configuration which is contributing.

Jaws has a talking installer which is what kicks in if you uninstall it. I Have never found a problem with uninstalling Jaws while Jaws was running, but of course turning it off and starting Narrator is a very valid way to also do this.

Why would you need to uninstall Jaws while it is running.  You can turn  on narrator and uninstall Jaws.

Hello,

I sent out an email last week about Jaws2021 constantly crashing. I called tech support, they tried a few things and then said I need to email tech support. I sent an email and got the reply “call 727-803-8600 as there are to many variables. I sent back an email saying I already talk to live support and they told me to email support. Okay now what? Is it possible to uninstall Jaws while it is running and then reinstall it? Anything else I might want to try? Sounds like tech support doesn’t want to do anything.

Thanks,
