Hi Marie,
 
Read the following and see if it'll help.
 
From: Brian Vogel
I would encourage you, with any browser, to stop using, ALT + F4, to exit it if you want to exit all windows it might have open in one fell swoop. 
ALT+F4 closes the window that is currently active, but if you have 10 Edge windows open it won't close the other 9. 
Pressing, ALT + F, then pressing, C, when in Edge, closes Edge. 
Every window that Edge has open will close if you use the, ALT + F then, C, keystroke in any given Edge window that has focus. 
This works similarly in all Chromium-based browsers, though what comes after the, ALT + F, part varies.  It's, C, in Edge,  and, X, in Chrome, Brave &
Vivaldi. 
Microsoft always has to be slightly different! 
Brian
 
 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I set this when your post was first on the list and it worked for quite a while. However, recently it once again sycles through the tabs for Edge. I just double checked my settings and it absolutely says to show only open windows.
And this is on three machines so I am sort of stumped. Any suggestions?

hi i am a jaws user and have been using teams with my job for almost 2 years.  it works fine with speechand the desktop client.  jaws 2021 has scripts for it.  i used  doug lee's scripts for a while but when jaws 
2021  came out with scripts i stopped using them. 

the teams screen is a little different.the best way to learn it is listen to the webinars from microsoft and the 2 from freedom.

when starting to Learn teams i found it best to stick to the chat area. accessed with control 2 the other thing to keep

For Jaws people, Teams is easier to work with if you have a braille display. The configuration that I have has the web based interface divided into several tabs which you arrow between. Once in a tab, you tab between elements.

Hi Vaughan.

 

When I first learned training that I’d attended used Teams, I downloaded the app and tested my USB headset. I heard myself through Teams, so I thought it would be simple to use. I couldn’t have been more wrong. My first problem was joining the meeting. I didn’t find a Join button. I did get into the room, but I still don’t know how I did it. Next, I learned nobody could hear me. It took me a couple of hours to figure out how to unmute the mic. After that, the instructor wanted me to do a screen share, and there was no obvious way to do it. It all ended with me accidentally leaving the meeting, and I didn’t know how to get back in. Once I calmed down from panicking, I did think of shortcut keys, but it was too late.

 

This is why I’m asking whether the app or the web interface is better. I do have a list of shortcut keys, so I can control the mic, screen share, and such. I’m still unsure how to join a specific meeting in the app.

 

That’s what happened. I want things to go as smooth as possible, so any pointers would be appreciated.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

I just went to Amazon to pick up my USB sound mixer when I wanted separation between JAWS and the Zoom audio.  Mind you, I picked it up months ago or even in 019.  I’ve used it for so long I can’t remember. Oh, yes, you definitely have to assign the JAWS to whatever device you plug into your computer and if using a dongle with a headphone jack, plug in headphones before assigning JAWS to it.

Yes,  For around $12 on Amazon, you can get a little USB dongle that has a microphone and headphone jack.  Just plug it into any USB port then after it installs, press JAWS key + J to get to the JAWS context menu.  Down Arrow to the Utilities Sub menu, Right Arrow and Down Arrow to Sound Cards Sub Menu.  Right arrow and Down Arrow to the new sound card and hit Enter to select it as your new JAWS sound card.  Be sure that you plug in an ear bud or head phones to the correct jack on the dongle, because  as soon as you hit enter on the sound card, JAWS will instantly switch to this device and stop coming through your speakers.  Now, you will only hear your windows sounds and Zoom participants in your speakers and only you will hear JAWS in your ear.  To adjust the volume of JAWS, you will need to go to the Windows Mixer.

You could use a USB sound card adapter to run JAWS through.  You can also set up Zoom to be on mute until you need to speak then press the Space bar to speak and release to be muted.  Just use JAWS when you are muted.

Madison,

          If you're talking about managing a calendar or calendars under the Google web interface, that's never been done in the Gmail interface, although you can put a calendar sidebar there.

          If you want to manage calendars under Google then, once you have logged into your Google account for any of the services, you can either activate the apps button at the top of any given service's page, find the other app you need (Calendar, in this case) and activate it or you can just paste the calendar app URL into a new tab:
https://calendar.google.com

Then you'll have to deal with all the settings specific to calendar to get the display format you want and to have the calendars you have access to either have appointments be displayed or not displayed.

All settings for a calendar or calendars for a given Google account, including who they're shared with, are handled under the Calendars interface under settings, specifically the section, Settings for my calendars.

There are multiple help pages and tutorials on using Calendar with a screen reader:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Google+Calendar+screen+reader 

The general principle here applies to any Google app:  Contacts, Calendar, Drive, Gmail, Sheets, Docs, etc., all have their own dedicated web interface where sharing for those things is managed, even when that sharing is across multiple Google accounts.  The owner for any given thing controls who else may access it, and they control that through the interface for the thing being accessed in its sharing settings.

Dave,  Yes, the folder name is the same.  I did solve my problem.  Here is how i did it.  I opened Winamp and tried to open a play list from the Music folder on the D drive.  The song names did populate the Winamp play list editor, but nothing would play.  I then opened a new playlist and hit L to add songs.  I then saved this play list which did play fine.  I then opened the play list that I just created with Notepad and looked at the file path for each song.  I also opened one of my original play lists in Notpad and compaired the file paths.  I noticed that in the new play list, the file path started with \Music\ where the file path in the original playlist started with \Users\Marty\Music\.  I then deleted \Users\Marty\ from one of the songs and replaced the first \.  I then opened this play list in Winamp and what do you know?  The only song that would play was the one that I changed the file path.  I then opened all of my play list files in Notepad, selected \Users\Marty\, hit Control H for Replace and replaced the selected text with \ and chose Replace all and hit OK.  This fixed my problem.  I don't quite understand just how it did, but all is working now.


Thanks

Subject: Which version of Microsoft Teams works better with JAWS?

 

Hi.

 

I’ve had a bad experience with the Microsoft Teams app, and was wondering if the web one is better? At least this time I have the keyboard shortcuts, so that’ll help no matter which one I use.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Kevin and Jilly

Hi, Cher. If I understand correctly, you are using the April update to JAWS, and you cannot see Voice Assistant in the Utilities menu. If you are using Windows 7 instead of Windows 10, Voice Assistant won't show up. Voice Assistant only shows up if you're using the Windows 10 operating system.

Hi Bill,

 

Sorry I didn’t see the message about tom’s One drive not showing the folder size . I just took a look at my own one drive, when I find the one drive folder through file explorer,, if I  bring up properties, the file size does show for me. If I then go into any of the folders in my one drive , again, I can bring up the properties of any of the folders in the drive and get their file size too, the only folder it doesn’t seem to work on is my personal vault in there,  although I can bring up properties of that folder the size doesn’t display,, I’m assuming that’s a security thing  since it’s a protected folder.

Hi, Paul. This works in most situations, but the one Steve, Dave and Tom are discussing here is used space and available space on One Drive. With One Drive, ALT plus ENTER does not give used and free space of the drive, either with JAWS key plus V or with JAWS key plus ALT, and W. Those items are not listed in the properties window of the One Drive drive letter assigned to One Drive.

Hi,

 

Just following on from this, after pressing Alt and enter to bring up the properties window, as a quicker way of getting the file size, rather than using the jaws key and B to read all, instead, if you press Alt, jaws  key and W, it virtualises the properties window so you can then use the arrow keys to navigate  and can very quickly access the file size information ,  by just pressing the down arrow a couple of times to get to the file size information. When finished press escape to exit virtualisation, and then escape again to exit the properties window as usual. Hope this might help anyone who didn’t already know the key stroke for this, definitely makes getting folder size quicker and easier.

David:

 

As I think I said yesterday, the alt enter command does not seem to give the folder size, at least on my Windows 10 computer here.

 

It gives other information like you would expect, but not the file size, number of files and folders, etc..

 

I find this strange, because it seems to work well for other drives.

If using JAWS,and with your focus on the OneDrive folder, or for that matter any folder you want this information for, press Alt Enter for Properties and then press Insert B and you will evntually hear the size of the folder.

Hi tom,

 

That’s definitely the right key stroke. the key stroke should work on any property box, so you could try it on just a normal file on your computer to see if the key stroke works, just so you  know you are doing the right thing. All that being said though, looking at the message from bill it sounds like your one drive isn’t showing the file size for some reason, so that may be why the key stroke I suggested isn’t helping.

I ttried alt insert followed by the letter W here after hitting alt enter for properties, but couldn’t get it to work in terms of giving me one drive storage information.

 

Am I missing something?

Sharkie has not been responding lately either. Perhaps that’s why voice assistant is not showing up in the utilities menu. Anyone have ideas of what to check out?
