Hi!

 

I was sent the “AT&T Cingular Flip IV” cellphone recently because my old cellphone is soon to be incompatible with AT&T’s network.  Apparently, this phone’s OS is “KiaOS” and it has an accessibility feature called “Readout.”  Does anyone know about this cellphone’s accessibility?  Does anyone know where I can find information about “Readout?”  Does anyone know if there is a listing somewhere of key commands (a.k.a., shortcuts) that can be used for various functions (e.g., time, status, etc.)?

 

Thanks,

Nor, to my knowledge, does Go Contact Sync Mod.

And that's not a criticism of your choice.  I know that Fruux does limit the number of accounts, but that's only on Fruux Basic.  Most of the sync software that's not open source does unlimited numbers of accounts unless you use their paid versions.  But for a great many home users, one or two accounts is all they're using anyway.

But another arrow in the proverbial quiver is always good.

Hi Alan,
Our posts have crossed but you will see that I don't think it is a Jaws version. I can edit a cell with multiple email addresses quite easily and I'm running Jaws 2021, latest update, etc. I'm using the Microsoft 365 version of Excel but that shouldn't matter.
I never uncheck the allow editing in cells, otherwise you have a mess in my experience.

I use Tom Enhanced from Vocalizer, but will be surprised if it is a synthesizer issue.

It could be this is a monster huge excel file and the computer is slowing down, who knows....

This is one that if it continues, asking on the office list might get a good answer, but having Microsoft accessibility log into the machine and see exactly what is happening might be the next best thing. 800-936-5900

Morey,

I've read through the posts on this thread but haven't been following it closely. I'll first say that I'm using Fusion 2020 and Excel 2019 and the latest version of Windows 10 Home. And I've not disabled in-cell editing which others have suggested. I'll also suggest that you subscribe to the Office-accessibility@groups.io list by sending a blank email to office-accessibility+subscribe@groups.io. I think you might get better assistance from that list.

I expect that Chris might be right that this could be a JAWS version issue.

I had no problems editing a cell containing email addresses whether they were in one cell separated by spaces and whether they were hyperlinks or regular text. After pressing F2, I was able to press the home key and cycle through character by character with Fusion feedback. And I used your worthington@wi.rr.com email address three times in one cell for this test.

Just out of curiosity, do you get a different result when you place one email address in a cell by itself? I'm not a fan of loading up a single cell with a lot of content of any type but I'm not here to debate procedural issues. I'm just curious whether you get a different result with only one email address in a cell and what JAWS says when you put focus in that cell and if editing it is any different.

I just tried this with a field that I quickly entered 4 email addresses separated by comma and a space.
I am using Jaws 2021 with Tom Enhanced, Excel Microsoft Excel Subscription Version 16.0.14326.20238.
I tabbed out of the cell, went back to it and hit f2. I was able to easily arrow left back through the cell (your cursor is at the end of the cell when you press f2) and I was able to jump to the beginning of the cell and arrow right through everything and it wasn't slow at all.
I have the allow editing in cells checked under Excel options, Advanced.

I'm not sure why it works so well for me and not for you all.

Hi Morey,

OK, I tried a few different scenarios with your setup with Excel. I think it is a problem within Jaws 2021.

I entered 3 email addresses within a cell separated by a comma. I also checked, and the cell format was general.

Using Jaws 2021, I could only get it to read the contents of the cell one character at a time by hitting f2 one time. Sometimes it would not read anything, sometimes it might read a few characters then all of a sudden stop, and like I said, only once did it actually read all of the contents all the way through.

Now I also loaded Jaws 2020 and tried it. You had to move a little slow, but it would read character by character after hitting f2. If you tried moving to fast, then it would just skip that letter and speak the one you were on. But it did and would work.

Now I also loaded and tried Narrator with the same setup. I will say that Narrator probably worked just as good as Jaws 2020 if not better.

The only thing I will ask is did you make sure your window is maximized? I assume that you did this, but thought I would at least mention it.

So if possible, I would consider using Jaws 2020 or Narrator when editing within that sheet.

Sorry I do not have any better suggestions.

Chris

Have you by any chance changed synths?   I ask because the section symbol can be inserted by typing 167 then hitting ALT+X immediately afterward in MS-Word.  Its unicode keystroke is ALT+0167.

It could be a character that one synth "recognizes" with a name and another doesn't.

The simple answer is, "Don't."

If you're using Gmail you really want any changes you make in Outlook synced to Gmail, and vice versa, as far as contacts go.  Why Microsoft has not created a graceful interface to third party contacts and calendars I will never understand.

I have recommended both Go Contact Sync Mod and Fruux Basic (if you only have a couple of accounts, as it's paid beyond 2 accounts or two devices - also requires you to create an account with them) when the need arises to sync contact information between Gmail and the Outlook Address Book.

Richard, what follows is not meant as a personal attack, but what ought to be is not the issue here.

What I'm saying is that you need to test to see if this might be a synth specific thing, just in case it is.

I agree that it makes little sense for a section marker to not be read as "section mark" when encountered, but if it's not, regardless of which synth you use, you then know it has to be a screen-reader setting.  If it changes depending on the synth, then there's likely nothing you can do except choose a different synth or complain to the maintainer of the synth you'd prefer to use about this.

moderated Re: raising/lowering computer volume

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Using the Jaws layered command is one option.
If you want to raise the overall volume then there are two additional options:

If you have a keyboard with volume buttons this would be one of the easiest ways, if there are no dedicated volume buttons or on a laptop, often FN + a Function Key will do the trick.
On my Asus laptop FN + F11 is volume down, FN + F12 is volume up and FN + F10 is Mute/Unmute. I often use a Logitech K780 keyboard with my laptop and since it has no dedicated volume buttons or knob, the same key combinations work, furthermore, FN + F7, F8 and F9 are media keys for Rewind, Play/Pause and Forward/Skip respectively.
My mechanical keyboards at work which are from a company called "Das Keyboard" have a really nice round knob on the top right of the keyboard and next to it a Mute/Unmute button and buttons for Rewind, Play/Pause and Forward.

Lastly, if you don't have any buttons you can bring up the computer's volume mixer in two main ways:
1. Bring up the system tray with Jaws + F11, arrow down to your speaker icon, press enter and from the context menu select volume mixer. Then use up and down arrow to change the volume
2. To directly bring up the volume mixer press the Windows Key and type "SndVol" and press enter, this stands for "sound volume" and after pressing enter you again use up and down arrow to change the volume, press enter or Escape to exit after changing the volume.
3. You can create a shortcut for the volume mixer and either put it on the desktop and create a shortcut like Control + Shift + V or put the shortcut on the taskbar, move it to whichever position you want, let's say 2, and then use Windows Key + 2 on the number row to open it. Windows Key + keys 1 through 0 are the Windows shortcut keys for opening applications 1 through 10 on the taskbar and in my opinion are the best option for your most used applications or shortcuts because once on the taskbar you don't have to create a keyboard shortcut and you can open the item from anywhere.

Hi.  You first need to install the Java runtime environment which you can get from the oracle website.  A search on google will yield you the needed result.  Choose the one for your windows environment, 32 or 64bit.  Install it as you would a normal application or program.  Once installed, go to your command line.

Type the following to see if you got the JRE correctly installed:

java -version

This will tell you if you got the correct version installed.

If it is, then type the following:

jabswitch.exe -enable

You should here the message telling you that the java access bridge has been enabled.  You should then be good to go.  Write me privately if you have any more concerns.  Cheers!

I am currently evaluating a music library grooming application called Songkong. It comes recommended by a specialist retailer of premium audio equipment.

 

When I load, it refers to problems because Access Bridge is not installed. The error reports this, so Windows is telling SongKong that there is a screen reader.

 

Is Access Bridge a tool for software developers, a utility for end-users or something else. If I download it, what happens to Jaws? Anything else that I should be aware of?

 

Thanks in advance.

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_301-b09)                                                                  

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.301-b09, mixed mode)                                                       

                                                                                                                         

When I then run the command,

 

jab.exe -enable,

 

I receive the following message,

 

'jab.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,                                                        

operable program or batch file.                                                                                          

 

From your instructions below, what am I doing wrong?

 

Thank you.

Hi.  You first need to install the Java runtime environment which you can get from the oracle website.  A search on google will yield you the needed result.  Choose the one for your windows environment, 32 or 64bit.  Install it as you would a normal application or program.  Once installed, go to your command line.

Type the following to see if you got the JRE correctly installed:

java -version

This will tell you if you got the correct version installed.

If it is, then type the following:

jabswitch.exe -enable

You should here the message telling you that the java access bridge has been enabled.  You should then be good to go.  Write me privately if you have any more concerns.  Cheers!

Hello everyone.

 

I am not sure how to solve my problem, but hopefully someone with more expertise than I can point me in the right direction.

 

I am currently evaluating a music library grooming application called Songkong. It comes recommended by a specialist retailer of premium audio equipment.

 

When I load, it refers to problems because Access Bridge is not installed. The error reports this, so Windows is telling SongKong that there is a screen reader.

 

Is Access Bridge a tool for software developers, a utility for end-users or something else. If I download it, what happens to Jaws? Anything else that I should be aware of?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Vaughan.
