Hi Mark, 

I think scripting an app depends on a lot of things. The first aspect is in which framework the app is made, for example is it made the old style in which every control have its handle, or is it a modern UWP app in which you can use UIA, or is it a web app in which you can use Freedom's 

Most of the apps today using UIA so I run a script listing all the UIA controls with properties. I have a first glance at the properties so I can write scripts to focus controls which are difficult to focus or not in the tab order. I will have a look at the tab order to find out if there are controls unreachable. 

And yes, there are applications out there which are difficult or sometimes impossible to script. An example of an app difficult to script was the Audible app from Microsoft Store (which is removed from the store). Normally it's easy to script the UWP apps from Microsoft store, at least they should. The problem here is that some developers don't name their controls or forget to name some UIA properties like AutomationID. In Audible's case there weren't enough properties filled with clear names so one couldn't focus them. I tried to go round this issue by counting the controls so I could make a script like "go to the 6th control after the control with AutomationID named xyz". 

Web apps are great to script since Google Chrome and Edge Chromium have the opportunity to use UIA and Freedom's domain specific scripting API. 

In the JAWS scripting list you asked if there were apps that don't need scripting: 

It depends on the expectations you have. Some users are happy if the can tab around the app, fill edits or press buttons. Other users want to do this quickly and need some more keystrokes to focus controls. Some people need to know the time display in a media player. others don't care about this. If I have an app without scripts I usually find some issues I want to script to be more effective. 

You can say the more complex an application is the more it need additional scripting. An app like Microsoft Word or a browser needs scripting as well to do the things efficient. 

I hope this answers your questions, let me know if you have more questions. 

Have a nice weekand

I was wondering if JAWS script writers could describe what they do?

Are you given tasks that a user wants to complete and then figure out how to make just those tasks accessible?  Are some applications hopeless or can a script do anything? If you have an example, as a case study, that might help explain what's involved.

Which version of JAWS do you have? The volume commands are in JAWS 2021 and the splitting with the headset is 2022.

Hello again everyone,

 

                What has been everyone’s experience with Netbeans another Java IDE. I took a Java class in the early 2000s. The IDE we used worked very well with Jaws. If that IDE was Netbeans it worked quite well. It was my mind that was having trouble grasping some programming concepts not the IDE in question that made me give up. I wish I knew if that IDE was Netbeans or another Java IDE. Once the Java JDK17 is installed and running I’ll need to give Netbeans a test drive in the hopes it was the one I used back when I took the Java classes.  Your experiences with Netbeans will be very much appreciated.

Notepad++ is also a very viable option. I will agree with you that NVDA may be a better screen reader for most coding tasks, though most things should work with both screen readers. I recommended Visual Studio Code both because it is very lightweight, with a lot of things you can add to it in the form of extensions, plus decent accessibility. Like I said, though, both can do the job. It's personal preference.

Hi rick,


you somehow must have changed the synthesiser for the desktop.

As far as I remember, the desktop has a different file associated with it as far as JAWS configuration is concerned.


To remedy this, with Eloquence speaking, pres CONTROL+JAWSKey+s to bring up the voice profile dialogue.

Next, tab to where it says "for Windows oS". This should read "Eloquence".

Change the synthesizer to standard, which should be your Triple Talk synthesizer.

Press enter, and all should be OK now.


Regards,

Nermin

Hi, Rick. As Curtis has said, CONTROL plus JAWS key plus S will get you into the selection box for JAWS voice profiles. When you are on the desktop, JAWS is using the Windows OS configuration. so CONTROL plus JAWS key plus S will still give you a selection dialog for voice profiles which should govern which voice is used for the desktop. Try selecting your default external synth while you are on the desktop, and see if this will resolve the problem of the voice changing.

Hi all,

I jump back between JFW 2019 and 2022 due to whatever problems one resolves over the other.

Within either version, when I hit the windows key +m key, to go to the desktop, I then hit the alt key down to file manager, for example. The voice then changes to elequence from my default use of an external voice syn. Any ideas to what setting I need to correct so the same voice or scheme is used no matter where I am within the operating system, Windows 10, FYI. I look forward to all help.

This is happening when not in any specific application. Only when I go to desktop then tab down to other choices, as file explorer. I stated file manager incorrectly previusly. Nevertheless, this is happening with two different versions of Jaws, 2019 and 2022. Once within any specific app, it reverts back to the default synthesizer. When I tab down from the desktop, it goes to elequence. I know this was not doing this previously. Any suggestions?

Hi, Kevin. No. I stated the version of Zoom, so that if any shortcut keys get added in future versions of Zoom, people will know that they have an older version of the shortcut list. Probably the reason ALT plus A did not mute your zoom is that JAWS had lost focus. If this happens to me, I quit JAWS and restart JAWS without having to leave the Zoom application.

Hello Kevin:

 

In Zoom meetings where recording is started, a window pops up letting you know that the meeting is being recorded. Unless or until you respond to this window, you are not able to use Alt A to mute and unmute. You have to tab to “got it” or something like that.

 

I hope this clarifies.

 

Curtis

Hi Curtis,

 

The other day I used alt A to turn off mute. It didn’t get turned off.

 

Bill stated a version of Zoom in his email. Do some people setup a Zoom meeting that have different versions where the key strokes will not work?

 

Cheers,

 

Kevin

Nothing happens.

Hello Kevin:

 

The keystroke is Alt with h to get you into the Chat area.

 

Cordially,

Hello, I have a list of key strokes for using Zoom. The list doesn’t have a key stroke to put me in the chat box. Is there a key stroke to make this happen?

Cheers,

Kevin
