Hi Ann. Assuming JAWS is installed on both sides, your local desktop
and the Citrix platform, JAWS should work as normal, as long as it is
full screen mode. You can switch to full screen mode by pressing
Control plus the Alt key plus the pause key. This also ia assuming you
are using a full size keyboard preferably a desktop keyboard.

I am using Version 2021.2107.12

However, Richard points out an item that I did not quite understand. Alt+NumPad5, is read current sentence & does not move to start of said sentence.

Unlike, Alt+UpArrow or Alt+DownArrow, which indeed move to the start of sentence.

Apologies for adding to the  confusion.

Hey everyone

 

The way the keystrokes currently work is by design. The read current sentence keystroke works exactly the same as the read current word keystroke. They let you quickly reference the current sentence or word you’re working on without moving the cursor.

 

The other sentence navigation keystrokes are titled “read prior sentence” and “read next sentence”. It may well be worth suggesting that the read prior sentence keystroke move you to the beginning of the current sentence the first time it is pressed as a user configurable option. This would align with the behaviour of the prior and next word keystrokes.

 

This is what’s stated in the official JAWS help documentation:

 

“Additional Notes on JAWS Keystrokes for Reading Text

General Notes

Most of the keystrokes for reading text move the active cursor to the beginning of the text being read. Keystrokes for reading the current character, line, word, or sentence do not move the active cursor. Most of these keystrokes work in all cursor modes. The JAWS and Invisible cursors only read text already on the screen; they cannot scroll a document in the manner the PC cursor or Virtual PC cursor can.”

 

Cheers

 

Ben

As has been cleared up, the home key just moves to the beginning of the current line.

 

If the Jaws keys alt+up arrow, numpad5, and down-arrow say that they “move to the beginning of their respective sentence, they don’t move the cursor.  This should be reported to FS. 

I’m sorry I cannot remember who pointed out, if you do alt+up-arrow, followed by alt+down-arrow, you have the cursor at the beginning of the current sentence.  So clearly, Jaws is moving the cursor on those commands, but apparently not with alt+numpad5.

 

This is also true in the beta and I will report this.  I think this may have been a long standing bug.

There is no single keystroke. The quickest way is to do an alt up arrow followed by an alt down arrow, or all down arrow followed by an alt up arrow. That should put you at the beginning of the sentence

No – pressing the Home key takes you to the beginning of  a line and not the beginning of a sentence.

 

Like others the only way of doing this I know of is with the alt and up and down arrows.

The sentence Nav addon in NVDA adds this ability as well for those who use that screenreader as well as Jaws.

Alt+UpArrow or NumPad 8 = Move to prior sentence & speak it

Alt+NumPad 5 = Move to start of current  sentence & speak it

Alt+DownArrow or NumPad 2 = Move to next  sentence & speak it

 

I think they say this does not work? It works here for me. Only combo boxes & calendar,   are where the AltKey combinations change.

Good Luck

The puzzle is still open. Alt + number pad 5 is the same as JAWS + h in laptop mode and reads from the start of the current sentence but doesn't actual move the cursor. The home key moves the cursor to the previous line break character but not the start of the current sentence. Alt up and alt down works but is two keystrokes. I guess I should have said I was looking for just one keystroke.

The puzzle is still open. Alt + number pad 5 is the same as JAWS + h in laptop mode and reads from the start of the current sentence but doesn't actual move the cursor. The home key moves the cursor to the previous line break character but not the start of the current sentence. Alt up and alt down works but is two keystrokes. I guess I should have said I was looking for just one keystroke.

Hi, Sieghard. Being that we are on a list for JAWS users, we can do this, but what Ben is talking about is a universal Windows command. What about those using Narrator? They don't have an unmute command, or one that automatically raises volume.

I don't disagree with this, but playing devil's advocate I should point out that one could then also ask for many more Windows shortcuts for things which can already be done with your screenreader and which for 99% of users are probably useless because they just click on the little speaker icon with the mouse and do what they need to do. Jaws has both volume and unmuting the soundcard covered since a screen refresh, Jaws Key + Escape, unmutes the default soundcard and raises the volume to a medium level if the soundcard is muted.

Hi, Ben. I agree with you concerning adding Windows universal keystrokes to raise and lower system volume. I don't think you have gone far enough, however. I also believe Microsoft should add a Windows universal keystroke that would toggle muting and unmuting the current sound card. It won't do you any good to raise the system volume if some sighted person has muted sound, and you don't know it, or don't know how to get to where you can unmute the sound, while you have no sound to use for navigation purposes.

Hey Dave

 

Thank you and very well explained! I’m aware of these methods. My suggestion to Microsoft is to add universal Windows keystrokes that will adjust volume. That way, a user would know exactly what keys to press, regardless of the hardware or screen reader they’re using.

 

Cheers

 

Ben

Ben:
 
Using methods one or two, which Siegard suggests, you get a defined Windows audible sound, and JAWS announces the volume change, when you press the UP or, Down arrow keys to raise and lower the system volume.
 
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. Using the Adjust Volume  applet. Tap either WINDOWS KEY. Type: adjust volume or, volume  in the search edit field and press ENTER. This opens the "Setting < System < Sound, applet. Windows will more than likely delimit to the applet, as soon as you type the first three letters of adjust or  volume.
 
 By default, the first item displayed is: "change the device or app volume link".

 

Press SHIFT+TAB ONCE. JAWS says, "Change device volume left right slider".

 

Use the UP or DOWN ARROW keys, to increase or decrease the system volume.


Press ALT+F4, to close the applet.

 

Using this method, the volume changes by single digitss.

 

4. using the JAWS method, which came into effect in Version 2021. Press JAWS KEY+SPACE BAR, followed by V, followed by S, for the system volume, or J, for the JAWS volume. Use the UP or, DOWN arrow keys, to increase or, decrease either volume.

 

Press ESC or, ALT+F4. A decending 2-tone is played, and the window is closed.

 

Using this method, the volume increases or decreases by 2 digits. JAWS speaks the volume changes  but, there is no Windows audible sound when you press the UP or DOWN arrow keys.
 
HTH

Hi everyone

 

Great suggestions! 😊 Personally, I've always found it frustrating that Windows does not have universal keyboard shortcuts that adjust volume. Coincidentally, I provided this feedback to Microsoft about two weeks back via the Feedback Hub in Windows.

 

For those not familiar, the Feedback Hub is an official way to provide feedback directly to Microsoft and can be accessed by pressing Windows key + Alt + F. Feedback can then be voted on by other Windows users and the most popular/relevant is escalated.

 

Anyway, my suggestion was basically to set Windows key + F11 and F12 to adjust system volume. I also stated that it would be great to have an optional sound effect that plays while adjusting volume for those who cannot see the visual representation. I think this would be a great accessibility enhancement.

 

If you agree, please feel free to go and view my feedback and give it a vote via the link below. Unfortunately, it can be tricky to have feedback like this recognised because most users haven't experienced this difficulty. Note that when you activate the link, you will get a message asking you if it’s ok to open Feedback Hub.

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.

Use the JAWS layered command INSERT+SPACE then v. Enter s after that to adjust the system volume or j to adjust the JAWS volume. Use the up and down arrow keys to make the adjustment then press Escape.

Hi all,

Can someone please remind me how to raise/lower the volume on my computer? I can't remember how to do it. Using latest versions of Jaws and Windows 10.

Thank you.  I don't care what your visual status happens to be, it is up to you as a device owner to actually learn how your device works.

I'm all for accessibility, and have exhibited that repeatedly, but having to "memorize" that something such as FN + F6 is Mute, FN + F7 is volume down, and FN + F8 is Volume up for the device you own is not too much to ask.  It's 100% keyboard accessible.

Not that I'd mind if Windows were to introduce keyboard shortcuts, but it's not up to the OS makers to handle what's generally already available in the hardware.

And, by definition, all accessibility features only benefit a minority.  I worry a lot more about what is actually inaccessible, rather than not accessible by any given user's preferred way.
