Greetings:

 

I confirm that this problem is not present in JAWS version 2020. It is, however, present in the latest version of JAWS 2021.

 

Cordially,

Hi,

It is consistent with every single document. At the beginning of each line, it says Font Change. And in a document with more than one page, it's driving me crazy! Well, actually, it's even annoying with only one page documents. It just doesn't last as long.

And I have tried selecting all the text in the document and setting in manually to one font, but it made no difference.

Just out of curiosity, I just tried the keystroke while I was composing this message, and it did exactly the same thing.

Subject: Annoying Jaws word issue?

Hi folks,

I'm running the latest Jaws, the latest Windows 10, with the latest version of MS Word 365. When I use the keystroke Alt+Windows+i to move the cursor between document inconsistencies, it reports a font change at the beginning of every line. But when I check my formatting info, there has been no change.

Does anyone know what might cause this? And better, how can I fix it?

Thanks,
~Ann

Hi, this issue seems to be a generalized problem for all documents, I have just tried out with a random text generated by Word, and after running the text analyzer function, inconsistencies were found at the beginning of each line, of course, all of them were false inconsistencies.

Hello, and route PC to Jaws. I even made sure jaws key and z was on. No matter what I couldn’t get the options under the item on the dashboard to show up. I went to the sites accessibility page and selected visually impaired. Couldn’t tell if it was selected. Went back to the page and everything is the same. Is there a way I can get Jaws to recognize the options below a item on the dashboard?

Cheers,

Kevin

I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2021, Windows10 and Chrome. I’m on a site where I wanted to access a option. It is on the dashboard.  I was told by help on the site to move my cursor and hover the item. I do and there no options that show up. I’m guessing they are in a drop down box Jaws doesn’t recognize. I tried using the Jaws cursor, route Jaws to PC

With the accessible mode enabled I didn't have too much trouble reading articles. I use Jaws 2021 and Edge, I selected the Index, from there I was able to find sections/topics such as Business/Finance, CoronaVirus etc., after clicking on them I could then find individual articles and read them just fine.

FYI, and I don't know how much it may or may not help, in the Options dialog you can bring up on this page there is a checkbox for Enable Accessibility mode.  You can get to the Options button to bring it up in under 10 hits of Tab when the page is originally loaded.

You might want to give that a try and see if it results in any significant difference in accessibility.
