Hi, Albert. The Paste Special command is still available to use in JAWS 2021. It is not, though, a JAWS command. Instead, it is a Microsoft command, and the command is as follows,

 

ALT plus CONTROL plus V

Good afternoon everyone, 

 

I think that in older versions of Jaws, their was something called  paste special which allowed you too be able too copy the contents of a link in to a  word document.  In the latest version of jaws, is this keystroke still available, or has what I’m referring too, lo longer used?

Hi,

 

In the latest build of JAWS 2021 if you are focused on a link you can bring up the application/context menu and copy hyperlink to the clipboard and paste the link wherever you want.

 

Hope this is what you are referring to.

How are you connecting the display to your computer?

I have two Braille displays connected via Bluetooth, using one at a
time, of course. The computer needs to be paired with the Bluetooth
device first, then the display needs to be added to JFW. The "add"
button should be under Braille, after the "Modify" button.

This will make no sense, but what happens if you turn off Bluetooth, does
the
button reappear?
If so, that might indicate Jaws doesn't play well with more than one
Bluetooth
display connected or assume if you are using Bluetooth, you don't' need
another
display.

I've never found Bluetooth on Windows to be reliable enough to use a
braille
display myself.

Hi all,
As I mentioned I was getting some tech help, I was getting help with trying
to
connect a braille display to my laptop via Bluetooth. Well yesterday the
tech
guy had me uninstall this braille display, under Jaws options under braille
there's an add braille display button, and anyway today when we went to add
my
other braille display this button was gone. Any idea what could've happened
to
it and how we might be able to get it back? We tried doing a Jaws repair,
but
that didn't solve the problem. Any help is much appreciated!!!! Using
latest
versions of Jaws and Windows 10. Thanks Madison

Greetings:

Money Talks does indeed work just fine in Windows 10. As a checkbook
register, it does a beautiful job. I am an enthusiastic supporter of the
program. I myself am managing at least three separate registers with Money
Talks. Terrific program. Works great with JAWS.

Very truly yours,

You have to also check start jaws after logon and in the combo box for this user, make sure it says always.

Hi Randy

I'm with you there. The only thing I do is shut JAWS down and restart. I suspect its a memory issue. Haven't tried Narrator I must admit and I agree, its very frustrating. I'm sure Freedom Scientific must be aware of this issue.

Hi,

 

This is ryan, I have new JAWS software setup in my work laptop.

 

I was trying to change the braille code  under  translations setting section of the Braille settings and I accidently chose another language  instead of English  under the output part so I cannot figure how to change back to English US even though the translation shows English US  as default but it still shows  another language for output so how do I get it fixed back to English US?

Any h

help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

moderated Excel Slowing Down When Editing Formulas

Randy Meyer
 

I am using latest version of Jaws 2021, latest Office 365 downloaded onto my computer, and Windows 10.  After I enter a few formulas, Jaws slows down to a glacial speaking pace when editing any formulas.  When arrowing left and right in a formula, Jaws will take at least a second before reading the next character.  If I hit the arrow key repeatedly, Jaws takes a longtime to catch up.  The same behavior happens if I use control arrow in the formula.

 

It makes editing Excel formulas with Jaws impossible.  The problem goes away if I switch to Narrator, but Narrator is verbose, and I don’t want to learn how to use it in place of Jaws.

 

This behavior is happening on my main desktop computer, and has been for over a year.  It does not happen when performing the same tasks within Excel on my ElBraille.  I reviewed all Excel setting options on both machines, and set them all the same, to make sure there wasn’t an Excel setting causing the issue.

 

Any suggestions on how I can fix this long standing issue?

Hi Phillip!

 

I have heard that QuickBooks *online* is fairly accessible, but it costs money on a sliding scale based on your needs.  Also, see the below link to “Wave,” which is likewise reputed to be accessible.  I have not tried either.  However, Wave is free for basic needs, and then costs money on a sliding scale too.

 

https://www.waveapps.com/accounting

 

For various reasons, I dislike QB.  Soon, I am going to try Wave.  For a number of reasons, I am drawn to it.

 

HTH,
