Doesn't JAWS have something that is the functional equivalent of what NVDA calls a Configuration Profile, where you can tweak settings and then have that profile become active only when you have focus on a specific application window and not elsewhere?

if you have a 64-bit version of Windows (which you almost certainly do if you're using anything newer than Windows 7), this is what you want to download and install:

https://get.videolan.org/vlc/3.0.16/win64/vlc-3.0.16-win64.exe 

If, by chance, you are using an old 32-bit machine, which is unlikely, then go with this:

This is my tale of woes.  I downloaded “The Nine Lives of Christmas” and couldn’t find it in my Hallmark folder.  When I did a search for it, it appeared to be in the VLC folder and I couldn’t delete it.  So, I deleted the entire VLC folder.  I enjoy using VLC and tried installing one that said it was for windows but it also asked me to install kernel exe.  It told me how to go to an older version but I got confused.  Help please!!

Thanks for all the help I’ve received before this last question.  Some times I believe I forget to reply to the sender so I am taking this time to tell everyone thanks.

Thanks.  I had to work with it but it is back to where I like it.  If I had to choose from the fractions being said incorrectly, or the numbers being said digit by digit when I am in R S Games or Quinten C Playroom, I’d rather put up with the miss stating the fractions.  Thanks once again.

To change how JAWS speaks numbers do the following.

  1. Make sure that you’re on the Web site or in the program where you want to make this change.
  2. Press insert+6 to open the Settings Center. This is the 6 on the row of numbers and not the 6 on the number pad.
  3. Type the word “number” without the quotes.
  4. Arrow down to the item labeled “number processing” but do not press enter at this point.
  5. Press the space bar to cycle through the various options, such as “digits” “full numbers”, etc.
  6. When you have moved to the setting that you want just press the enter key twice. The dialog will be closed and your settings will be saved.

Udo, I appreciate your explanation as it helps me understand a little more of what's going on.    Here's the description of the Enable Accessible Notification Events. Is it the right setting?  "When this check box is selected, Windows generated accessible event notifications will be spoken and provided in Braille using Flash Messages. An example of where you will hear these types of notifications include certain areas in Microsoft Office, such as Business Bars. This check box is selected by default."

moderated Re: Loading a webpage, why is JAWS chatty?

Udo Egner-Walter
 

Hi Mark, 

this are the results I expected. Firefox as non-UIA browser saying much less as the other browsers. Since UIA is part of Chromium browsers Google Chrom speaks more and Microsoft Edge speaks the most. Since Microsoft is the inventor of UIA it's clear they support UIA the most. They implanted a lot of UIA events so Screenreader can speak them. For example the page loading, or if a download is complete. 

So please be careful to change the setting because you might miss some informations (like finishing of a download). But this is a good thing about JAWS: you can change settings very fast and find out which one is best for you. The setting you changed recently are at the end of the tree view in Settings Center to change the settings fast if you don't like it. 

Good luck in trying out
Udo

Hi Mark,

the reason JAWS is speaking some strings twice is as follows:

JAWS uses some framework to gather information like the page title.Since
a few years there's a new framework called UIA. JAWS hooks itself in the
UIA framework and gets the information there. But the old one still
exists and this is reason some things are spoken twice. And because UIA
has a lot of information (at least in Microsoft Edge) JAWS is quite
chatty there.

As far as I know there's a setting to disable the new UIA methods. Since
I haven't an English version of JAWS I can't remember the exact name. I
think it was something like "UIA" or "Automation". But if you disable
the checkbox JAWS doesn't announce the UIA messages like the one if a
download was completed.

To proof if I'm right with my suspicion you can use Firefox, since
Firefox doesn't use UIA. Edge is the browser which uses UIA most
followed by the browser which use Chromium as a base (Google Chrome,
Brave and so on).

Hope this helps
Udo

Hi Betina,

The email you replied to has a lot of good suggestions in it, and ultimately you might have to call Freedom Scientific. However, years ago I had a similar problem with a display, so that brings to mind two ideas:

You have probably already done this, but have you restarted the computer? Sometimes it takes that to get JAWS to recognize the braille display.

In my case it turned out that my cable was bad. As soon as I used another cable the display connected. Also, if you can I would try a different usb port.

Good luck! Take care and stay safe!
