Hey Paul!
What I was actually trying to do was add voices like Tom, Emily, Serena, Daniel, Jennifer, Jill, and the like, to the Windows 10 Text-To-Speech panel. Is that actually possible? If so, what do I do?

Hi Annabelle,

 

I too have the old real speak voices cd which jaws used to ship with their older versions of jaws, I still use those voices on my windows 64bit system since the ones shipped on cd although only 32bit they could be used with third party software, so I often use those voices when playing audio games since I prefer those voices to the built in Microsoft voices. If you want the new 64bit voices for jaws you can download these   directly from the freedom scientific website, the newer 64bit voices I believe are called ‘Vocaliser voices’. I’ll put the link below, the voices downloaded from their site though can only be used with jaws , but those are the voices I’d recommend you use if you just want to add additional voices to your installation of Jaws.  If you do however specifically  want to use the real speak voices from your cd I do have a modified installer which will let you install them on a 64bit machine, this is a modified version of the installer though so not an official release from jaws  but something just created by a jaws user. Since it uses the voices from  your CD these are still only 32bit voices and are now somewhat old and dated  so they won’t sound as good as the newer vocaliser  voices. If you do want the installer, To avoid breaking any list rules I can send the modified installer but it won’t actually include any   of the real speak voices, so it’s just the modified installation file itself without any voices, therefore you’ll need the actual CD itself to get the voices from, as without the CD the installer won’t do anything as previously mentioned the installation file doesn’t contain any voices at all. anyway, like I said earlier the best thing if you want just the most up to date voices for Jaws is to use the ones from their website, the link to that is below you just need to select the link that is appropriate to your specific version  of Jaws

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I have a CD Rom of Realspeak Solo voices that came with JAWS 4.5, which includes Javier (Latin American Spanish), Tom (American English), Jennifer (American English), Emily (British English), (Daniel (British English), Serena (British English), and Paulina (Latin American Spanish), but I can't get these voices to load into JAWS 2021 in Windows 10, as the disk says they're specifically for 32-bit systems. Is there a CD ROM out there that has 64-bit versions of these SAPI 5 voices?

On the page which appears when you activate the above link, none of my

it is interesting that Forms Mode is automatically turned on. Here are a

Hi everyone. I appreciate you trying to help us. No, I haven't checked
the maximation and I'm running chrome as my main browser. Yes an edit
field pops up when the page loads. Interesting to me that it was
working today in edge the way it used to in chrome, meaning I could
login as a host and chat as I once could in chrome. Tony thought I
should take chrome off then put it back on which i did, and which made
no difference.

I can also confirm that by each alt+tab, I can hear: "task switching,

first message, one navigating by alt+tab by holding on the Alt key
would not hear it, unless leave the Alt, and start alt+tabbing again.

I'm not sure if others have noticed this problem. I will say that this does
not affect any of the JAWS 2022 betas or the final version.
With the latest update for JAWS 2021 I am noticing some extra wording when
holding down the alt key and repeatedly pressing the tab key to navigate
through running applications. When you first press this key combination JAWS
will say ""task switching, running applications list box." I have noticed
this behavior on two different computers, both of which are running Windows
10 version 21 H1.
This behavior does not occur if you press and then release alt+tab to open
the last application which had focus.
I have reported this to Vispero support but they were unable to duplicate
the problem.

I'll second this recommendation.   Although, if you're working in File Explorer CTRL + SHIFT + N should work, the default of ALT + 2 (on the number line, not number pad) should also also work and save a keystroke.

It is possible if someone somehow created a desktop shortcut that uses CTRL + SHIFT + N as its invocation, that would get processed by Windows itself rather than File Explorer.  I just tested this out by assigning one of my desktop shortcuts the shortcut key sequence CTRL + SHIFT + N and it always causes that program to be invoked even if I'm working in File Explorer at the time.  The processing hierarchy for any keyboard shortcut is Windows, Screen reader (when you are using one), application program.  And if either Windows or the Screen Reader processes a keyboard shortcut the application program will never have the chance (ignoring the use of a screen reader pass-through command).

Hi David

It sounds like you had the Outlook application in focus when you tried the keystroke. If so, Control + Shift + N will create a new note.

Try it in a list of files and folders in File Explorer and you will instantly create a new folder and be ready to give it a name.

Cheers

Ben

Out of curiosity I did the control shift N, command, it brought up note. Meaning instead of it letting me create a new folder, it put me in the create note function.

No change happened to that function.
If a PC restart didn't help, try the fixes in the linked webpage.

Hi William

 

To stop web pages and PDF documents from automatically reading in all relevant applications:

  1. Press the JAWS key + 6 (on the number row) to load Settings Centre.
  2. Press Control + Shift + D (for Delta) to modify default settings.
  3. Down arrow to “Web/HTML/PDFs” and right arrow to open.
  4. Down arrow to “Reading” and right arrow to open.
  5. Down arrow to “Document and web pages automatically read when loaded” and uncheck this option.
  6. Tab to Ok and hit Enter.

Note that you can follow the same steps from within a particular application and avoid switching to default settings if you don’t want to change this across the board.

All the best.

Ben

I have been able to duplicate the problem, but the excessive wording happens once only.

 

I can live with it.

I’m not sure if others have noticed this problem. I will say that this does not affect any of the JAWS 2022 betas or the final version.

With the latest update for JAWS 2021 I am noticing some extra wording when holding down the alt key and repeatedly pressing the tab key to navigate through running applications. When you first press this key combination JAWS will say “”task switching, running applications list box.” I have noticed this behavior on two different computers, both of which are running Windows 10 version 21 H1.

This behavior does not occur if you press and then release alt+tab to open the last application which had focus.

I have reported this to Vispero support but they were unable to duplicate the problem.
