hi,
Thanks to those who answered my earlier question about windows 10 versus
Windows 11. I will be sticking with windows 10, thanks to your unanimous
opinions!
when I last used a PC, I was using Internet explorer. That is no longer an
option. I am curious as to which Web browsers people recommend for best use
with Jaws.
Thanks in advance for any insights. Keith

Hi all, I have a question here regarding how to set up the Windows 11 Chat app. Recently, I installed Windows 11 and there is a feature that I really want to take advantage of, and this feature is the Chat app. I hit the command Win+C to activate this feature but everytime time I try to set it up, it wont show me the setup button instead it shows me the try again button. I hit the try again button and nothing happened. 

If you have configured the Windows 11 chat app before, can you please show me how you do it? 

Thanks 

Best regards

Keith,

While Firefox is generally a terrific browser I don't recommend using it with JAWS due to its slow performance. On four different computers I have used Firefox has never worked well with JAWS since version 57 when that browser went through some changes. Any Chromium browser should work equally well, whether we're talking about Edge, Chrome, Brave or others. I personally prefer Brave due to the fact that it is very much focused on user privacy.

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 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.

Hi Curtis and Tony,

 

To add to Curtis’s excellent questions, one more that might save a little trouble if the answer is no: has your wife maximized the page? To check, press alt-spacebar, release and then arrow up or down through the options. If maximized isn’t grayed out, press the spacebar on it. If it is grayed out, then maximization isn’t the source of the problem.

Hello Tony:

 

I looked at the page whose link you provided, which was https://sunvalleycc.online.church/. I am running JAWS 2022 with Windows 10 21H1. I have access to the latest versions of Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. I also have Mozilla Firefox.

 

On the page which appears when you activate the above link, none of my browsers will see an edit box when the JAWS command “e” is pressed. However, it is interesting that Forms Mode is automatically turned on. Here are a couple of questions that might help to address the differences in behavior between your and your wife’s computer.

 

1.            Is there supposed to be an edit box or field on the page which comes up when the above link is activated?

 

2.            Are you both using the same Web browser? If so, what browser is it?

 

3.            Are you both running with the same version of JAWS? What version would that be, and if your versions are different, can you tell us what version of JAWS runs on your computer and what version runs on your wife’s system?

 

4.            What about operating systems? Are you both running Windows 10 or is each one of you using a different operating system? If the latter, can you tell us what operating systems?

 

What we have here is only some of the information we need to attempt to address your issue.

 

With kind regards,

 

Curtis Chong

wWe are having an issue with JAWS and form fields on a website.

 

We are serving at our church and it's online and using an online

platform that normally works with Jaws.

 

For some reason, on my wife's laptop computer,  when she goes to press

the leter E to go to the fiorm field, it keeps telling her there are no

form fields on thsi page.

 

However, when I run the same page on my laptop, I can press ther letter

E to see the form fields and it works properly.

 

We are wondering if she has a newer version of windows than I do.

 

What is causing this not to work? On other web pages, she can go to the

edit fields.

 

Here is the website we are having issues with.
