Hello Robin,

You can up your count to at least four people. That's not the only interesting quirk I've noticed recently though.

When I want to switch folders, I have to hit enter twice on the new folder. So, for example, I want to check my junk folder. I move to the folders list, arrow down to junk, and I hit enter. Nothing happens. If i hit enter again it will open the folder. The same thing happens when I move to deleted items or back to my inbox or whereever. 

I have two ideas worth checking on. Who with this problem has Teams installed? I can't speak for the switching to contacts issue because I just realized I have it, but the pressing enter twice on a folder began sometime after I installed teams last week. Second, microsoft says they release new features of Office 365 slowly to users. It is possible that those of us with this problem have a different build. What build number does everyone have? Mine is 16.0.14326.20404.

Keep in mind that the process I am about to give you will make your inturnal speakers sound quieter and tinny. If you want to switch to High Definition Audio, go to the device manager, go to Realtek audio in sounds, go to properties and update driver, Select find on computer, uncheck the show only compadible hardware box, and under microsoft you will find High Definition Audio. Install that.

On the Bookshare page where you find a book you want to download, press c, the navigation key for combo box, until you land on the format choices. Press enter to open the list, alt-down arrow once, and then arrow down (without the alt key) through them. Press enter on your choice, and the book should install on your computer.

 

If you have JAWS, you have FSReader, so you will be able to use DAISY versions. MS Word is also an option.

 

If this isn’t enough information, please post again.

Bookshare books can be downloaded as Word documents and you could read them in Word.

Or, they can be downloaded as DAISY Text so you would need a DAISY reader, which FS Reader is one that comes with Jaws, so you could try that.

They used to offer a free version of victor reader Software, but I haven’t looked at that since I only want to read their books on my iPhone where I use Voice Dream Reader.

Unless they have changed (it has, admittedly, been year since I was a
bookshare member) FS Reader is able to deal with them. And that either
is, or at least can be, installed as part of jaws.

Interesting that three of us have seen the issue and a couple have not. At least I know it’s not just me.  I have not seen the issue in Word, as someone asked, but I’ll watch for it.  My home laptop is quirky (a.k.a.  I would not recommend that model to anyone) and there are always so many things being tweaked on our work network, so I often dismiss issues as unique to me.   Hopefully I’ll find that Curtis is right and JAWS 2022 fixes the issue, but I won’t be getting that installed here until the full release.

Hi,

Running JAWS 2021 with Outlook 365 on Windows 10 here at work.  I’ve noticed a quirk in Outlook in the last while and just got around to doing some more thorough testing today. Wondering if anyone else can replicate this.

 

I’ll be working in Outlook.  I will want to go to my contacts to check the spelling of a name or such and so I’ll use Control 3 to move to Contacts.  Immediately, Outlook will close and, if I was typing a message,  I will lose any email message I am in the process of typing. From what I can tell, this only happens if I’m in the inbox and then go to contacts.  If I go to calendar, taks list or back t inbox using the similar keysotrikes, no problem. I doesn’t happen every time, but at least 50% of the time and likely more. Same occurs if I revert back to JAWS 2020, so it’s not a recent JAWS change, but could be an Office update.  I could not replicate the problem when not running a speech program. When I tested with Narrator, it occurred once, but then I tried several more times and couldn’t get it to do it again.   At home I am running JAWS 2021 and the retail version of Outlook 2016 and cannot replicate the issue.

 

Can some of you on office 365 test this?  Just use Control, 1, Control 2 and Control 3 to move between sections.  As I said, I think I only get the issue if I’m going from the Mail to Contacts.

Good afternoon David Griffith,
 
So you find that these OneOdio Over Ear Headphones Studio Wired Bass Headsets with 50mm Driver wired earphones that you did a review on below are quite loud earphones?
 
I ask this about the loudness of them as I will need a very loud, good pair of wired earphones to use at an incoming calls call centre to hear Jaws clearly in my right-hand side ear so I can use the computer properly, (because I have some hearing loss in my right-hand side ear), while I take care of customer’s inquiries in my left-hand side ear.
 
Any help you can maybe give me on this loudness concern I have about these particular earphones would be so very, very much appreciated! Much, much thanks in advance for any possible help I can maybe get with this!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Kindest regards,

Subject: Re: slightly off topic: over ear headphones recommendations?

 

I hesitated to post this here initially as it is a Jaws list.  However given the persistence of interest I did a recent review on a pair of cheap headphones which would meet all these access requirements.

Review

OneOdio Over Ear Headphones Studio Wired Bass Headsets with 50mm Driver

 

Occasionally a mainstream product emerges which inadvertently meets all sorts of accessibility needs. The OneOdio Over Ear Headphone certainly do that, despite being described as D. J> Head pones, and their capacity for dual input may make them an important affordable access solution in the workplace.

 

Ironically access was not really considered when these headphones were ordered. They were a Christmas present from my daughter who was most interested in their noise cancelling aspect. The hope was that this would protect both herself and my wife from the sound of NVDA and Jaws leaking out whilst they were listening to the Television.

My deaf ears makes my listening volume loud and can disturb others with leakage.

 

Certainly these headphones reduce leakage and I now receive requests to switch back to them if I am using a different pair.

 

For general usage they are very pleasant wired headphones , with a good powerful bass sound. they are light if slightly bulky for portable usage. They are rated as the number 1 Amazon best seller for D. J Headphones.

They are also very reasonably priced at £34.99.

There are however 3 more important access features of these headphones.

 

The first access plus is the headphone loudness.

Prolonged loud headphone volume is undeniably dangerous for people with normal hearing. People with normal or mildly impaired hearing should heed all the warnings. However for people like me with congenital severe deafness it is essential to find headphones which can pump out volume. Pretty much every year I end up giving away headphones or earphones which are useless as they are just too quiet. Without suitable head pones producing sufficient volume I would be incapable of typing this review, making a pone call or listening to my Audio books Radio and Music.

Luckily these headphones are well capable of providing the necessary pump.

 

The second access capability is that they have sufficient headband tension to enable precise placement adjacent to or over my hearing aids. Lots of head pones are unusable with hearing aids as it is impossible to prevent high pitched feedback whistling without this precise placement.

 

Thirdly and probably most importantly is that these headphones can be used in dual input mode.

There are 2 input ports for the headphones.

The right ear receives an old style 6.5 mm headphone plug which has a normal 3.5mm plug at the other end of the cable. This cable is partly coiled to connect easily over distance too computers and other audio devices.

The left ear receives a small 2.5mm plug which via a shorter cable, connects to a normal 3.5mm plug. This cable includes an inline remote control and mic for playing and pausing, answering phone calls etc. This shorted cable is clearly suitable for connecting to any phone capable of receiving wired headphones.

I have tested this cable with my Google Pixel 4A and my old iPhone SE first generation via a lightning audio cable adapter. It worked as expected with both devices. It also worked with my Victor reader Trek and even paused and played via the remote inline control like the phones.

It received audio from my blind Shell Classic phone and Evo 10 Daisy Player but not surprisingly these devices did not respond to the inline remote control.

 

What I did not immediately appreciate is that it is possible to have both these input sources simultaneously connected.

So whilst I am typing this review I am also connected to my Blind Shell Classic phone. I am able to operate the phone, make and receive calls, all at the same time being able to consult my computer via my screenreader. If I need to make notes whilst listening to a call this is straightforward .

In the past this would be a struggle for me. For example I used to do Internet grocery shopping for my Mother in law, in her 90s. This involved me ringing her but also having to navigate the Sainsburys Web site on my PC. On several occasions I resorted to wearing 2 paris of headphones, one on top the other to try and complete this tricky process.

I would also have found these headphones an invaluable aid in work. In those days I relied on memory, clattering down notes immediately after the call.

More expensive phone and mixing devices were available , I remember using such a device at the RNIB but these headpones are a far easier, cheaper option.

 

I am, in summary, not sure what there is not to like. These are not a blue tooth option which is a plus for me because of issues i can describe another day.

Details from the Amazon Website below, and finally a link  to the UK Amazon below that.

And if you work for a call centre you should talk to your boss regarding a custom solution where you have Jaws on one ear and your phone call on the other. This is definitely possible with wired headsets, probably more difficult with Bluetooth.

Hank,It sounds like ideally, you want something that would allow you to only use one ear; and what I remember about the Bose is that it would be very difficult to remove the left, or position it so your work headset could be worn.

 

Loudness somewhat depends on your system and the Jaws setting, but if you could use a Bluetooth single ear piece, there are lots of choices from Plantronics.

Good morning Phillip,

 

I am personally looking for a very loud pair of good earphones so I will be able to hear jaws loud enough in only my right hand side ear, (I have a bit of hearing loss in my right hand side ear), because I will not be able to use my other ear to also hear jaws, because I will need to use my left hand side ear solely to hear properly incoming cusstomer calls and talk to them through a separte one ear headset with a mike at an incoming calls call centre.

 

Can you maybe please tell me if these Bose QC 35 II headphones are quite loud? Any help you can maybe give me with this would be so very much appreciated! Much, much thanks in advance for any help!

It helps to know what you are looking to spend. The options at $50 are a lot different than the $300 options.

I personally use the Bose QC 35 II headphones. I have had them for about 3 years now and use them daily. I would estimate I wear them an average of 8 hours a day including weekends. I use them for work and personal use. They have a Bluetooth option, and I do use it, but most of the time I plug them into my computer or iPad. The battery is supposed to last 20 hours if you’re using Bluetooth and 40 hours if they are plugged into a 3.5 jack and you’re just using noise canceling. The foam began coming out of the ear pieces about a year ago, but I replaced them for about $30.

Hi. I haven’t dealt with Access Bridge for a long time, but no one else has responded so here are what I hope will be a few pointers.

 

Notes for one of the JAWS 19 releases indicates that JAWS has been updated to work with Access Bridge as currently configured.

 

What I always think of as Java Access Bridge may have changed its name to Windows Access Bridge. Originally developed by Sun Micro Systems, the last I knew, it was owned by Oracle.

 

Here are some notes I made to myself a few years ago, so they may not be current:

 

As Mike B suggested, there is a download link. It's hard to find, but this link should take you to the actual download page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jab-2-0-2-download-354311.html

Note that before the download link is displayed, you must check the box accepting Oracle's license agreement, which appears on that page. Once you've checked it, Oracle will graciously thank you and produce the link. Some arrowing down is required.

Once I clicked on the link, I followed Mike's suggestion of selecting “open” instead of “save.”

 

To ensure the information is current, maybe Google “Access Bridge,” locate a download link, and install it. It ought to work with JAWS.

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.
