Hey everyone

You can flag an item with Control + Shift + G, but it would be obvious because flagging options appear. The default choice is "Follow up".

Cheers

Hello:

I am using Outlook 365 JAWS 2019 and Windows 10.

I am accidentally hitting something that puts a red flag on some of my messages in my in box.

Is there an easy way to turn off this red flag?

Thanks in advance.

Feel free to call me BZ, grin! I'd sure like to get some better sound out
of this dell inspiron 5502 which has 16 gigs of ram but realtek just doesn't

Control tab to the Enhancements or Advanced tab, now tab through to turn off any bass boost or audio enhancements settings.

For large documents of late, I have noticed that the PDF reader goes silent while it is attempting to load the entire document into memory. So, if you have a hundred pages, this might take a couple of minutes.

What I did was that |I selected and pasted the document to MS Word, and then I was able to read it. Any idea what should I do to make JAWS recognize it?

Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.

 

I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR.  I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.

 

I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes  that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.

 

Good luck,

Mario

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

I had a similar problem with my Dell sound a few years ago. After many
calls to Dell Pro support and a new motherboard we finally gave up on the
onboard sound and added a Sound Blaster card.

Hi, Fred. On your Dell computer, have you gone into Properties for the
selected playback device, to make sure that all special effects are turned
off? This would be in the Spacial Sound tab of Properties for the selected
playback device.

Bill, you are right in what I said. The computer works fine but just very
basey audio and practically no treble. The problem is not my speakers as I
use two computers with one set of speakers. I thought of calling the
microsoft help line but the problem seemed to have started during dell
updates and I thought dell might have the solution. I have been working on
this problem now for about a month. Anyway, thanks to all that has or will
try to help me. I can be contacted off the list as I do not want to clutter

Thanks again,

Fred,

What exactly is the problem?
Your computer becomes slow?

Maybe disable the Wavemax audio driver.
Open the startmenu, type:
services.msc
Tab when this program opens and you are in a list.
Find the Wavemax audio driver. I don' have the exact name, something with
Wavemax I thought.
Right click on it and choose properties.
Set startup type: disable.

Your sound will still work without this driver.

Kind regards, Marten

Hi, John. Are you by any chance pressing ALT, H, H, or ALT, H, L at any time during the composition of your message? if so, this is a toggle, and pressing ALT, H, H, or ALT, H, L will uncheck these flags.

 

It could also be a setting in one of the rules you have for creating and sorting messages, if you are using rules in Outlook.

Bill White
 

Hi, Curtis. I can actually make two of the steps for creating favorites even simpler. After making sure nothing is selected, and pressing CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F10, just press W, followed by S, and Arrowing to "New" followed by arrowing to Shortcut is eliminated. W, followed by S eliminates the steps involving arrowing to New and to Shortcuts.

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

Greetings:

 

I don’t understand how you can paste something into Word from Acrobat Reader which JAWS is not detecting. It is highly possible that Acrobat Reader is displaying the PDF in protected view. This is a setting you can change in the Acrobat Reader preferences.

I have the latest JAWS, but it is not doing the automatic OCR, because I don’t think that the document is an OCR image, and that is what I find it strange that JAWS is not reading it. What I did was that |I selected and pasted the document to MS Word, and then I was able to read it. Any idea what should I do to make JAWS recognize it?

Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.

 

I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR.  I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.

 

I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes  that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.

 

Good luck,

Mario

JAWS should have prompted you to OCR the document. If it did not, something else is going on.
