You might try putting the shortcut for JAWS 2020 into the Startup folder by copyint its shortcut from the desktop into the Startup folder in the following manner,

 

1. Copy the shortcut for JAWS 2020 to the clipboard with CONTROL plus C.

2. Press WINDOWS Key plus R for Run.

3. In the "run" dialog, type

 

shell:Startup

 

4. Press ENTER.

5. When the Startup folder opens, paste the shortcut for JAWS into the folder by using CONTROL plus V.

6. Reboot the computer.

7. See if JAWS 2020 starts automatically.

Something weird going on with JAWS 2020 on Windows 10 20H2. I go to the settings and check for starting JAWS during logon, press OK then when i return to the dialogue box its unchecked again. I find several topics on this issue but no solutions so far. 

Also is it possible somehow to automaticly activate the software when you have the ILM code?

There has been a lot of discussion about it on the Orbit Reader list of course.
I will write something up for AppleVis at some point soon.
But, starting from physical comparisons.
1. It is no louder while refreshing.
2. The keys are louder than those on the 20.
3. The keys are laid out more like you would expect from other displays, in that the 8 dots are kind of fanned out ergonomically. So unlike the 20, dots 7 and 8 are very comfortable for your little fingers to land on.
4. The space bar is on a slightly angled lip at the front, then the braille cells, then the keyboard.
5. there are cursor routing buttons above each cell.
6. It has a USB slot so you can use a thumb drive for alternate storage.
On my web site, I have samples of the alarm sounds under the heading Orbit Research information. 
www.turner42.com

I really like the display. Like the 20, it is the best feeling braille of any display.
You do have to install a driver to run it with JAWS so it emulates the Vario Ultra 40. Vispero says it is up to Orbit Research to fix the driver ...
But it works great with Jaws, or NVDA.

Hello list,

So I was thinking of upgrading to the Orbit Reader 40 display, but haven’t really been able to come across any reviews on the product. Write ups on the Orbit Reader 20 Plus yes, but not much for the 40. Can I just assume that they’re the same, but for amount of Braille cells?

There was one review I came across on Apple Vis but it was more focused on the device's sound than anything else. I did find one YouTube video, but it’s in French and well… I don’t speak French.

I was thinking of the Mantis 40, but honestly, I’m pretty happy with my mechanical keyboard for my desktop and I already have an 80 cell display connected to it, so this would be a more portable option for my laptop and iPhone for reading mostly. I don’t need another keyboard for that.

Anyway, if anyone’s got an Orbit Reader 40, I’d be curious to know their thoughts on how it’s holding up and general usage.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Hello,

I’m using the most recent versions of windows10, Outlook2016 and Jaws2021.

 

Since the most recent version of Jaws, I will go into an email. It will read the first line on its own and then repeat it. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Where you able to turn on or off a Jaws setting to correct this issue?

I couldn’t agree with you more.

 

If these companies are truly interested in accessibility, you would think they would check these things before releasing any updates.

 

In all fairness, though, I’m thankful for the accessibility that Zoom does offer, in comparison to other meeting platforms which, apparently are not as accessible.

 

I hope we will learn of an update that fixes the hand-raising key stroke issue soon.

Hi, Adrian. When in Zoom, there are two windows open. With JAWS, if I do JAWS key plus T for Title, one window just says Zoom. The other says Zoom Meeting. The window which says Zoom Meeting is usually the window in which meeting controls and shortcuts are operable. Right now, however, ALT plus Y doesn't work in either window. My question is, where is the actual meeting control that sighted persons click to raise and lower the hand. I understand that it is in the Participants panel, but I don't know exactly where it is. I have looked at this panel with JAWS, and don't see the Raise/Lower hand control here.

Hi Bill,
If a cited participant wanted to raise or lower their own hand, they would go to the more area. Under more they have the opportunity to raise or lower their hand and I believe the options are now more to the top of the box. They can also do it under their own name with participants.

Since its last update, zoom seems to be in great mess, with the more crucial
the inability to use alt-y to have hands raised. We experienced that in a

annoying minor things, but hope all this will vanish soon.

It does, but you have to use the say line command or if you start typing immediately after selecting rename whatever sheet name is there will be replaced by what you type.

You can also press F6 followed by F2 to rename a sheet, F6 puts you on the tab for your current sheet and F2 brings up Rename

Thank you very much.  This worked for adding a new sheet at the end of the list.  The Rename function in this menu doesn't seem to work though.

Thanks for that one, if you simply want to perform actions on the current sheet this is a good shortcut to know, still I also think F6 is useful if you want to go to your different sheets. Of course you can also do that by using Control + Page Dow or Page Up or by bringing up a listing of all your sheet with Alt + Shift + S, but I like the simplicity of the single key press and then being able to move to any of my sheets with the arrows and using application key to bring up the context menu. There are many ways to skin a cat in Excel.

The same way as before, just use F6 and it puts you into that bottom bar where your sheets are listed, you can arrow left and right to all the sheets in your workbook and perform any of the actions there with the context menu.

moderated Re: Working with Excel worksheets and JAWS .. rename

 

You can also press F6 which puts focus on the sheet tab at the bottom, then press application key and "R" for rename. The application menu here also allows you to insert sheets, delete them or copy/move them.
