Hi, Jim. Rather than using F3 to perform a search, use JAWS key plus F to
perform the initial search. Use F3 to repeat the search. If you want your
initial search criteria to be cleared, use JAWS key plus F, followed by a
new search string.

Usually you use either jaws+f3 or ctrl+f3 to set an initial search and
f3 to repeat the current search.

Hi again, Cynthia. A correction to my last message regarding enabling and disabling alerts in Zoom. F9 is not a toggle. It only tells you if alerts are enabled or disabled. To toggle this function, press ALT plus WINDOWS KEY plus S.

Subject: a couple of JAWS and zoom questions

 

Hello All,

 

I have noticed a couple of changes in what JAWS is speaking when in zoom – I wonder if anyone has found a solution? I am using the most up to date version of zoom, the current JAWS 2021 (haven’t upgraded yet), and windows 10 on my Dell XPS laptop.

 

  1. Recently, when I go into the participant list in a meeting, JAWS reads something like  “To move to an item press the arrow keys” before saying the participant name. It is incredibly annoying, and it just keeps saying that as I arrow through the list.
  2. It has also stopped letting me know when someone has entered the waiting room or raised their hand. If I have navigated away from the zoom meeting and am in, for example, Outlook, it will tell me someone has been put in the waiting room. If I am in the meeting, it tells me nothing.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Cynthia

Hi, Cynthia. In regard to your first question,

 

1. Recently, when I go into the participant list in a meeting, JAWS reads something like  “To move to an item press the arrow keys” before saying the participant name. It is incredibly annoying, and it just keeps saying that as I arrow through the list.

 

To correct this problem, you will need to enter JAWS Options, by pressing JAWS Key plus J, then enter JAWS Options>Basic.

Change the first option from,

Tutor Messages Announce menu and control help radio button‑ checked‑

to,

Tutor Messages Turn off menu and control help radio button‑ checked‑

 

As to your second question,

 

2. It has also stopped letting me know when someone has entered the waiting room or raised their hand. If I have navigated away from the zoom meeting and am in, for example, Outlook, it will tell me someone has been put in the waiting room. If I am in the meeting, it tells me nothing.

 

While in the Zoom Window labelled, Zoom Meeting, press CONTROL plus F9 (Function key 9), to make sure alerts and chat messages are enabled.

You can also accomplish the same thing by pressing ALT plus WINDOWS KEY plus S. These keystrokes are both toggles.

See now, it sounds like you are using an expired account.  When the subscription is not kept up, you can receive messages but can’t send or reply to them.  At least that is my understanding. I thought my sister paid for office 365 years ago and a year later I couldn’t send or reply to any messages I received.  I was told it was because my annual subscription had run out.  Since then I renew it every year.

Madison,

 

By default, I don’t know not having an Outlook.com account.

Security is a good possibility but unsure.

What exactly are you sending when you are required to sign in? an attachment of some sort? Or, mass-mailing? Or, none of these?

 

If you were to ignore the sign-in prompt what happens?

Do you keep yourself logged into an Office or Microsoft account, is this what is prompting you to sign-in?

Sorry, Madison, I don’t have more on troubleshooting this beyond the above.

Is JAWS reading everything for you in the App and online?

Not sure if there was a useful answer, but this may require a web log on and a check of settings from there regarding any filters or privileges that need setting or un-selecting.

Hi all,

About two months ago I created an Outlook.com email account because I was tired

of the email account that I have with our ISP (which is the account that I'm

sending this message from) either blocking messages or marking messages that

aren't junk as junk even though I've marked them as not junk so many times. I

hate worrying about whether or not I'll receive a message, which is why I

decided to create an Outlook.com account. Anyway, now for my issue/question,

with my Outlook.com account sometimes it'd let me send messages and other times

they wouldn't go through and then my account would get locked because they

thought I was doing something bad when I wasn't. The last time this happened I

got a message telling me to sign into my account, but I've been avoiding doing

this for fear that I'm just going to keep having the same issue which I really

don't want to continue to have to deal with. I've called the MS Disability

Answer Desk twice regarding this, and they've been able to unlock my account but

both times they haven't told me why this happens or if there's anything that I

can do to prevent this from happening in the future. So for anyone who has or

has had an Outlook.com account have you ever had this issue? If so, any idea

what I can do to  prevent this from happening again? If no one else has had this

issue then what did I do wrong? If anyone else has ideas please share them also.

I really don't want to get rid of my account; and I really want to have all of

my emails going to one address as checking two inboxes is annoying. I hate

accessing mail on the web.

Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really hope someone

can help me, any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Madison

If you are within a return window and can get the cost refunded, that's precisely what I'd do.

As someone who is a PC tech for part of my living, I have a strong dislike for this particular software.  And it's not because it stops me from getting business, but because it not infrequently screws things up for those who use it.  It's on the "uninstall immediately" list when I see it on a computer if the owner consents, and it's on a lot of techs' uninstall immediately lists.

The choice, of course, is yours.

Hi Clarence,
Did you try turning on the Jaws touch cursor?
I have often found that when things aren't identified, I can access them with the Jaws touch cursor.
To activate it, press shift + PC cursor.
To turn it off, double tap the PC cursor.
You navigate with the four arrow keys.

I recently purchased the software System Mechanic. It is a package offered by AOL for cleaning up your hard drive. 

I downloaded it and discovered that JAWS was not able to identify the buttons, or the controls on the application. 

Has anyone used System Mechanic, and how did you get JAWS to interact with the controls. 

I have not contacted the manufacturer, because I think that they would not even know what I am talking about. 

I have uninstalled the software pending a resolution to this issue. 

I am considering having a sighted person share the screen and operate the system for me. I don't really want to do that. So, any help would be appreciated.

They know, just don’t care.  This is an old problem.

 

It has been a few years since I used it and was not able to use all features.  Much can be accessed using the jaws cursor and simulated mouse keys.

Depending if the video is inserted properly and the buttons are labeled, you could always just hit B and scan through the page for play buttons. It's not going to be smooth, but it's an idea.

Greetings:

 

If anyone is using Windows 11 with JAWS, have you been able to use some of the more advanced functions if File Explorer? In particular, upon reading how to do things like set Folder Options or map network drives in File Explorer under Windows 11, reference is made to a Three Dot icon on the Toolbar which is supposed to be a More Options button. How one gets to this button (three dots icon) without a mouse is unclear in the trade press.

 

In any case, if anyone has information about this, I would appreciate hearing from you on this subject.

 

Many thanks.
