Even faster, hit Alt Enter for properties, rather than Shift F10 or the applications key.

And, for yet another option, you can create a desktop shortcut to do an immediate shutdown for your computer:

1.  Once you have focus on the desktop, hit the Applications/Menu Key or SHIFT+F10, immediately followed by W for the New option, immediately followed by S for the Shortcut option.

2. In the edit box labeled, "Type the location of the item:" enter the full path to the program you wish to run along with any command line options you may want it to take.  To trigger a system shutdown, this would be:

          %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /f /t 0

3.  Activate the Next button.

4.  In the edit box labeled, "Type a name for this shortcut:," enter whatever you want the name to be when it's created on the desktop.  I happened to name mine, "Immediate Shutdown."  At this point, you may be finished.  If you don’t need a keyboard shortcut then hit the Finish button and you’re done.   Otherwise, continue on after having activated the Finish button.

5.  Locate the shortcut you just created on your desktop and gain focus on it.  With focus on it hit either the Menu/Applications Key or SHIFT+F10, immediately followed by R for Properties.

6.  In the Properties dialog for your shortcut, navigate to the edit box labeled, "Shortcut key:," or hit ALT+K to be thrown into that edit box.  I have found no way to set up anything other than "Ctrl + Alt +" followed by the letter or lowercase keyboard character of your choice.  One simply hits that character and the CTRL + ALT + part is populated ahead of it.

7.  Navigate to the OK key and activate it.  Your desktop shortcut now has a keyboard shortcut associated with it.

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,

 

Hank

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.

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.

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.

Michael Mote
 

Hi Kevin. As far as JAWS functionality goes, there is no difference between the home and pro license. All of the JAWS features are the same.

The pro license will allow you to connect to Virtual Desktops, the home annual license does not. You can still connect to VPN networks, but connecting using the Remote Access feature function will not work using a JAWS home annual license. I hope this helps.

Madison Martin
 

Hi Kevin,

I used to have Pro as well and when renewing my SMA I was told that you only need Pro if you use Jaws for work, otherwise it makes more sense to have the Home version or whatever it’s called. Plus it’s less expensive then Pro to renew your SMA. That’s just what I was told, so if I’m wrong then someone please correct me so that Kevin has the correct info; though I’d hope that since the dealer sells Jaws they’d know what they’re talking about.

I can't think of any reason, unless you need to use more than three computers, need to use Tandem Direct, as opposed to regular tandem, or you need to use the "Remote Access" feature. JAWS Pro is mainly for a work situation.

Do you use Mush now? Do you think it would benefit users to have scripts written? Perhaps if there are enough people who play there might be some impetus for someone to do it.

48 hours and counting to my new iPhone 13 pro…

I can send you my address privately if you want to take care of that raise or maybe you could send me your new iPhone 13 Pro after you decide you want to trade for two iPhone 8 I still have kicking around and really should have sold by now 😂

I mean who would not want to have two home buttons even if they are on separate phones!

Sieghard,

Give yourself a raise!

 

That alt+enter hotkey while in a message you are composing is brilliant!  I am not sure how I went this long without ever coming across that.

I used it on this message.

 

Thanks,

 

 

 

Richard

When you are composing a message press Alt + Enter and you get the message options, alternative the setting is in the

This is in Options > Message Options, the shortcut for that is Alt + P followed by O and P

You can also press the keyboard shortcut Alt + Enter after you have written your message which also brings up message options.

I needed to send an urgent message yesterday and trawled through the menu options but just couldn’t find how to make the message “high priority“.

Dear Faraz,


I am pasting below a mail received from another mailing list regarding scrips for Whatzapp Web. These scrips work with JAWS.

Hello everyone! in this article  I will  speak a little about accessibility and usability, specificly on Whatsapp Web, and sharing a script, users of screen reader, can work on   Whatsapp by the computer with more autonomy, practicality and confidence.

The informations about the script and its installation are bellow: :

To use the scripts, it is necessary to have the extension Tampermonkey for your browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge ou Safari).
After that, just access the script, which will be recognized by Tampermonkey, and click on install.

WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility

After installing the script for Whatsapp Web, WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, when accessing the app, you must wait for the application to load and then use the shortcut ALT + S. If the script is deactivated, the message:
Script activated successfully will be displayed; if the script is already activated, an alert will be given with the message Script disabled. When you deactivate it, all elements and shortcuts created by it will be removed, except the activation and deactivation shortcut.

Added elements and labels

With WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility enabled, the following modifications will be applied:
• Before the panel with the chat list there will be a level 1 header H1 to facilitate navigation via the screen reader, by pressing the 'h' key or the number '1' in the navigation mode; • After opening a chat, at the beginning of the contact / group area there will be a level 2 H2 header, with the label "Active chat + CONTACT / GROUP NAME", which can be accessed by pressing the 'h' key or number 2 in browse mode; • The emogi buttons will be labeled above the message writing field in the footer; • After the message writing field, there will be a button with the label "Record voice message" if the text field is clear, or "Send text message" if it is filled; • When you click on the "Record Voice Message" button, a "Cancel recording" button, the recording time and another button with the label "Send voice message"
will appear below the message field;

Shortcut keys

After enabling WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, the following shortcut keys are available:
• ALT + a: focus on the options for choosing the type of attachment to be sent in the active chat; • ALT + B: focus on the search field and label it as "Search chat and contacts ..."; • ALT + C: focus on the chat list; • ALT + E: puts the focus on the message writing field and labels it "Write a message (name of the active chat)"; • ALT + L: opens an options box to select the language of the script (Portuguese, English or Spanish), after pressing the 'enter' key in the desired option, the script messages will be in that language; • ALT + M: puts the focus on the message list of the active chat; • ALT + S: activate and deactivate the script; • ALT + T: speak the title of the active chat.
NOTE: sometimes NVDA does not go into focus mode automatically when using shortcuts, so you may need to put it in focus mode with the shortcut NVDA + space bar. Other keys can be configured as the NVDA key, but by default it is 'Insert'.

No. Not at this time. I am not sure whether there is a developer that is writing scripts or not. Someone can correct me if I am wrong.
