Here’s a non-techy understanding. You’re probably familiar with the F5 refresh process. The JAWS insert-escape command refreshes a screen in the sense that JAWS catches up with what is displayed on the screen. Often when JAWS can’t find something on a webpage that you’d expect to find there, insert-escape will enable JAWS to find it. I use the command many times daily.

Jaws doesn't have a command for this , but Windows does and Jaws will tell you if a screenis maximized or not if you press, Alt + spacebar, to open system settings and down arrow through the options.  If the, Maximize, setting says, unavailable, that means that the screen is maximized.  But if maximize doesn't say unavailable press enter on it to maximize it.
 
The shortcut keystroke to maximize a window is, Windows key + up arrow.

In web sites, the size of the browser window can affect the visual interface dramatically. In some pages, a menu bar on a wide screen could get folded into a collapsed button menu on a smaller screen.  A person might not realize their browser window is half the screen size and that the layout of a favorite webpage is suddenly quite different. Is there any JAWS command that could help report the size of the window thing?  A message such as "Window is not maximized",  could be helpful. Maybe "Window is 50% width of the screen" or "Windows is 100% width of the screen"

moderated Re: How To Adjust Windows Sounds Volume On A Windows 10 PC

Mike B.
 

Hi Sherry,
 
This is what I do, but Bill pointed out something to me privately and I think you're trying to say it here as well.
 After makeing a volume setting adjustment to a particular device in the volume mixer you're supposed to close the volume mixer without any other navigation. 
 
Before I would tab to another setting without closing and that's why my volume adjustments for the individual devices were not sticking.
 
So the lesson I learned  is that if you want to change the volume on more than 1 device in the volume mixer you need to close the volume mixer after each device setting adjustment.  Thankyou Sherry and Bill for getting me on the right track.
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Go to “speakers/headphones” in the system tray by pressing Jaws key F11.  Press enter.  You will then hear a menu.  Arrow down once to Volume settings (I believe it’s called.”  Then start tabbing through or use the shift-tab.  You will see the different device settings and each should have a volume up, volume down and mute setting.  Exit the menu and you should be good to go.  I hope this helps.

Hi, Tom. You adjust your volume for System Sounds, more or less the same way you do for the System Volume. In your System tray, you will have a button for Speaker Volume. Right click that icon.

2. Arrow down to Volume Mixer, and press ENTER.

3. Now, TAB through the volume buttons until you find System Sounds Button. Press ENTER.

4. Arrow up and down to see which way the arrows are taking the System Sounds. Adjust according to the volume you desire. I always use the semicolon key while at the desktop to get the system to make the error sound.

I thought the problem would be corrected by reducing the system volume, but that did not help.

 

Can someone tell me how to specifically adjust the Windows sounds folume?

I hit Enter.  I guess it depends on what you are trying to do. I use the Touch cursor in an application to get to some buttons that the PC cursor cannot reach. Once I turn on Touch cursor, I hit page up to move  to  Form Controls. Then as I  up and down arrow in the screen, the touch cursor is moving between the available form controls.  Once I hear the one I want, I hit Enter and it activates the button.

Subject: Re: The Touch cursor

 

Hello Donna:

 

I find myself confused. Shift Enter is not the keystroke to turn on the JAWS Touch Cursor. If, however, you mean Shift plus Numpad Plus, that is the JAWS touch cursor. To turn it off, double tap the plus key on the number pad.

 

Best regards,

 

Curtis Chong

Subject: The Touch cursor

 

I am using JFW 2022 and windows 11.  Sometime when I put my computer on sleep mode, when I come back, I can’t get JFW to speak.  I turn on the touch cursor with shift enter.  I can find sign in with that cursor, but cannot succeed when trying to make it do anything and find it hard to get back out of the touch curson mode.  Anyone have suggestions as to how to make this work?

 

Thanks for any help.

Yes.  It does get confusing.  When I saw the subject line, I thought why not just call it the jaws key.  I think with NVDA, it is referred to as the NVDA key. Shirley, we all have brain cramps or fog at times.

Hi Shirley,

 

It's the JAWS key.

Please forgive this silly question, but when referring to the insert key, do you all mean the JAWS key or the Enter Key? I’m digging through my memory and can’t remember.

 

Thanks.

Here’s a non-techy understanding. You’re probably familiar with the F5 refresh process. The JAWS insert-escape command refreshes a screen in the sense that JAWS catches up with what is displayed on the screen. Often when JAWS can’t find something on a webpage that you’d expect to find there, insert-escape will enable JAWS to find it. I use the command many times daily.

I was just introduced to Insert + Escape.  This does the following:

Repaints all currently displayed items on the screen.

However, I don't understand the sort of scenarios where I would use this. Can someone describe them?

 

 


moderated JAWS accessibility with Zoom as interpreter

Gezim Rexha
 

Hi list,

 

I would appreciate if someone would tell me whether JAWS is accessible with Zoom as an interpreter.

 

A few months ago, I went through a frustrating experience, as JAWS would not speak the language channel, and I ended up interpreting on the wrong one.

 

I am using the latest JAWS version.

 

Best wishes,

Gezim

I always refer to the Jaws key as the insert key.

I could see where one could mix up insert with enter,

after all, when you enter, you are affectively inserting something to the computer.

But when some folks say Jaws, they mean insert, and caps lock if Jaws is in laptop layout.
