Hello, Alt+up and down arrows do not work with me to read sentence by
sentence, sheer silence.
If the document is propertly structured, CTRL+H or CTRL+T should work.

It is not the charge ones are objecting too, it is the non-support and no updates one gets or in the case of updates, doesn't get that is the problem. I guess it is the old, "What do you expect for $10?" In these times, if you charge for an app, you are reasonably expected to provide updates. Even a low cost app years ago, after a few years, provided an updated version to keep up with the changing software.

It's still out there. I've never been charged more than once even though I tried to purchase it for other computers. A message would come up that I already had a license so could just download it.
But the last time I tried was a couple years ago. I kept the downloaded file in case I needed it again, but I don't know if it would work again.
But it works fine on my two machines where it is installed.
The person who used to write that program is no longer working on those now I guess. But the money spent was more than well worth it, and I would have paid ten times that much for that program gladly.

Hi, Brian. When you were working with the JAWS user and having trouble with Visual Tracking, was that user running JAWS with ZoomText or with any other magnification software? When I was looking at the Visual Tracking settings, I saw the following:

 

Use the options in this group to configure settings for visual tracking when JAWS is running by itself. When used with Fusion or MAGic, visual highlighting is controlled by the screen magnification software.

Hello All,

I was working with a JAWS user remotely this evening and, as is typical, JAWS was not set up by default to highlight on screen the equivalent of where JAWS has focus in the Virtual Cursor.  I went in to Visual settings, but still couldn't make what happens with NVDA's Focus Highlight, or similar, happen in JAWS 2021.

It could be that JAWS must be restarted, but it did not give me any indication of that when I tweaked several settings.  For those of us who have sight, this sort of feature is a godsend when assisting, and particularly if we're doing so remotely and cannot actually hear JAWS at all well during the process.  There's no issue when I'm doing the pointing and clicking, but if I want the person I'm assisting to try something out, it really helps me to be able to see exactly where they are and what has focus.

Any guidance is appreciated.  (And let me tell you hiding these settings under "Utilities" in the JAWS menu structure made no sense to me!)

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. After receiving a few confirmations that others of you are experiencing the same chronic misspellings with JAWS and Facebook's Messenger app, both downloaded from Microsoft's store and on Facebook's mobile site, someone suggested what I thought I heard as Google Miranda.
Searches revealed no Google Miranda, but rather an open-source cross-messaging platform that hasn't even reached version 1. I downloaded and installed this thing, but found no special accessible contacts or other accessibility options during the install process.
Furthermore, when I run this Miranda, I only get a combo box for selecting two drivers and a mysterious edit field into which I'm supposed to type some information to create a user profile. Since the edit field has no field data, I haven't a clue what kind of information is required: a username, email address, real name, etc.
Something tells me, this is not the Miranda to which the original poster referred. What gives? If Jed, who I believe sent me down this Miranda rabbit hole, is reading this, please reply either here or privately.
Thanks,

moderated Re: JAWS Equivalent of NVDA Focus Highlight

 

Hi

I believe that setting refers to tracking your location in virtual PC cursor/virtual caret as opposed to showing you the controls you are interacting with. And for resident NVDA users/testers, touch cursor is sort of equivalent to object navigation/review cursor in NVDA, and what NVDA calls “visual highlight” originated from an add-on that was in existence for a number of years (can’t tell you details because it is not the scope of this forum).

Cheers,

Joseph

That got me immediately to the correct settings.

I have to say, one would be more efficient if one could just do these settings when you enable the cursor tracking in the virtual stuff.

Hi,

Visual tracking settings can be found under Settings Center (JAWS Key+number row 6)/Visual tracking, and because Settings Center will default to showing settings from current application it is best to switch to default settings from there and adjust global settings.

Cheers,

Joseph

That was already checked and where, might I ask, are the adjustments?  Preferably, exactly?

I am striking out here.
