Hello.

You can find this stuff explained in the JAWS manual, but perhaps it helps
to get a more hands-on sort of perspective.
The pC cursor is the actual system focus. When you move it around, you are
moving the actual system cursor (nB, n ot the mouse pointer). When you are
moving around in a word document and want to make an edit, you are using the
pC cursor. When you are tabbing around a programme interface or making
selections in a standard dialogue box, you are moving the pC cursor and it
is directly interacting with the controls.
The virtual cursor is just that -- it is normally not visible on screen, and
it is exclusively useful in situations where the screen-reader creates a
buffer that you can move around in using this cursor *without* directly
interacting with anything unless you directly click on a link or button. You
can't edit text in virtual mode; the so-called "forms mode" in jaws is
really just turning off the virtual cursor and placing your PC cursor in an
edit field where you can type. Most often you will see the virtual cursor
using a web browser or PDF document, where it is active by default. However
you can turn it on in other programmes as well, or put the contents of a
window into a virtual buffer, where you can easily read the text therein and
copy it to the clipboard if you need to. Using the pC cursor, you can only
copy text if it's specifically in an edit field.
Hopefully that all didn't just muddy the waters even further.

Hi,

I've never been clear on what exactly the difference between the Virtual
cursor vursus the PC cursors are. Can anyone offer an explanation or
description of the differences between them?

Thanks.

Thanks for posting all this. One other point that should mention that for
these KB commands to work is that we, JAWS users, have to press insert+t to
get out of the virtual mode.
This, by far, is the most complete list I've seen on this topic and includes
something I have been curious to play with, that "c" command for bringing up
the caption mode.
What I am hoping to discover is whether this will allow for clipping of text
from a video for quick easy review and searching later offline and for
saving of the info in a text searchable form.
And, oh yes, Madison, thanks for raising the question which prompted Bill's
thorough list.

I'm coming at this late, but has anyone tried/or is it possible to do an insert D on the bullet and then adjust the bullet on the side where you make the new way to 'say' bullet, just hit the space bar to make jaws say nothing at all and then enter it into the dictionary?


That is what I would try.


Good Luck,

nancy

That's a cool trick. The only problem I can see is that you'll have to find the seek slider every time. It seems like it'd be much easier to just turn the virtual cursor off, then the keystrokes work no matter where your position is in the window.

Hi, Marty. I never turn off my virtual cursor when using these keystrokes. Instead, I find the seek slider on the YouTube video page, and press Space. Once in the Seek Slider, all the keystrokes work without having to turn off the virtual cursor. If you want to find the seek slider, start a video playing, and use CONTROL plus F to do a search for the word seek, then press space, once JAWS finds the word Seek. You won't need to turn off the Virtual Cursor, but you will probably want to mute JAWS, because with the virtual cursor on, JAWS repeats everything in the Seek Slider.

Hi, Madison. Check out the following.


YouTube Shortcuts

Pause and Resume Video

Let's start with the most common and useful YouTube keyboard
shortcuts. You can press the Spacebar while watching a video to pause
it. You can also press the Spacebar to resume a paused video. What
many people don't know, however, is that you can get the same results using the K key.

Skip Forward or Backward

Another set of well known YouTube keyboard shortcut keys are the
forward arrow and backward arrow keys. The video skips 5 seconds ahead
or behind depending on the arrow key. And once again, here's something
not many people know.

You can also forward or rewind a YouTube video in 10 second increments
by pressing the J and L keys.

Skip to a Different Point or Repeat

That's not all that YouTube offers in the way of keyboard navigation.
You can actually jump to a specific part of the video. A YouTube
video, no matter how long, is divided into ten parts. From the number
row on your keyboard, you can press any key from 0 to 9 to jump to the specific parts.

For instance, pressing 0 will bring you to the start of the video, i.e.
repeat the video.
Pressing 5 will bring you to the exact middle of the video.
Press 9 and you will jump to the last 10th of the video.

Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube Video

YouTube has a lot of videos of just people talking. Sometimes they
talk really fast while sometimes they talk really slow. Luckily, you
can speed up or slow down YouTube videos rather easily. This
functionality isn't made obvious. But you can get to these controls by
clicking on the gear icon and selecting Playback speed. That requires
at least 3 clicks. A much easier way to speed up or slow down YouTube
videos is to use YouTube keyboard shortcut keys.

How to Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube video

YouTube offers 8 playback speed options: 0.25x, 0.50x, 0.75x, Normal,
1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, 2.0x. You can switch between these using the
following shortcut keys.

Shift + . or >
Shift + , or <

Navigate YouTube Video Frame by Frame

If you thought the ability to speed up or slow down a YouTube video
was impressive, prepare to be surprised. YouTube also lets you go
through a video frame by frame.
First, you have to pause the video, which you can do using Spacebar or K.
Next, press the . (Period) to go forward a frame or press the ,
(comma) to go back a frame.

You can also hold down either of these keys to watch the video is
super slow motion in either direction.

Raise or Lower Volume

Most keyboards have some media controls keys to control things such as
volume. These are almost always smaller than the other keys and
fixated on the top row where you have to look down and find them.

Luckily, the online YouTube video player has its own volume control
with YouTube keyboard shortcuts. You can control it using the up arrow
key to raise the volume or down arrow key to lower the volume.

Mute YouTube Video

This is another useful YouTube keyboard shortcut but not many know about it.
You can actually mute or unmute a YouTube video by pressing the M key.

Play the Next Video or Previous Video

YouTube always has a list of suggestions whether Autoplay is on or
not. If the video you're currently watching fails to hold your
attention, you can completely skip it and move to the next one on the
list. To do this you just have to use the Shift + N YouTube keyboard
shortcut keys. This also works if you're watching a playlist. In a
playlist, you can even go back to the previous video by pressing Shift + P.

Select Search Box

While watching a video on YouTube you can simply press "/" and start
typing your search query. Pressing the "/" key brings the search bar into focus.
You can also select search suggestions using the arrow keys and hit
Enter to run the selected search. This is mighty convenient because
you never have to use your mouse or slide on the trackpad to click on the search bar.

Switch to Fullscreen

While playing a YouTube video you can simply press the F key to switch
to full screen. If the video is already in full screen, pressing F
will switch it back to the normal view.

You can also press the F11 on the keyboard to toggle between
Fullscreen modes in Windows PCs.

Enable or Disable Closed Captions

Many YouTube videos have auto-generated closed captions for people
with a hearing disability. Closed captions are also helpful when
you're in an environment where you can't really rely on audio. They're
also helpful if you're watching something in a language you don't
fully understand, or maybe you don't get the accent.

You can turn on or turn off closed captions with YouTube keyboard
shortcuts by simply pressing "C" on the keyboard.

Open YouTube Mini-Player in the Bottom Right


YouTube mini-player keyboard shortcuts

Another cool feature not many people know about on YouTube is the
YouTube mini-player. Yes, you can actually continue to browse YouTube
while your video plays without having to open another tab or anything.
Press I while the video is playing to move the video into the bottom right corner.

So, there they are, some of the most useful YouTube keyboard shortcut
keys that we found. Whether you are a power user, a nerd, or a regular
Joe who is used to clicking things, these YouTube shortcut keys above
should prove very useful.

I found this from an ancient overview of new features in JAWS 8.0.  I don't have JAWS on this machine to check to see if it's still accurate or not:

To disable bullet type indication, do the following:

  1. Open a Word document.
  2. Press INSERT+V to open the Adjust JAWS Verbosity dialog.
  3. Use the ARROW keys to select Bullet type indication, and press SPACEBAR to turn off this item.

It also may only affect exactly how a bullet is announced, not whether a bullet is announced at all.  But it's still worth a look.

Bill White
 

Hi, Hareth. When you open Quick Assist, there is a window which opens first, that tells you there is an update to Quick Assist. However, this is not actually true. There is a problem with the app. Try tabbing to the button that says, Already installed it, open. If you click that, a new window will open which you cannot tab through. This is the window in which you press Space Bar, followed by E for Edit. You can then put in your code. I think you were trying to find the edit field in the wrong Quick Assist Window, the Update Window. You first must open Quick Assist from this window, before the Narrator steps will work.

BTW, checked if there is an update for the quick assist, already have

both narrator's scan modes off and on gives "no next edit, no previous

I should also add that you should probably copy the VKeyboard.jsm and
VKeyboard.jss files to your user script directory because if you don't
then every time you update jaws the files will get overwritten and
you'll need to apply the changes again.

using the jaws script manager (available via <jaws>+0). The files are

Hi Mark,
 
I found several bullets in that list and it's time consuming to copy them all, but you can get the ascii or ansi code of any symbol / bullet by highlighting the symbol / bullet,
then press the, Numpad 5 key, three times quickly.  Below are some examples.
 
‣ = character 8227
 
⁌ = character 8268
 
⁍ = character 8269
 
◦ =character 9702
To copy a bullet / symbol highlight the bullet / symbol and press, Insert, shift + right arrow or left arrow, to select it and press, Control + C to copy.
 
I stated right or left arrow because if you're to the left of the symbol you use the right arrow and if you're to the right of the symbol you use the left arrow to select.
 
Here's a website with all kinds of symbols.

There is a bullet there but in the list view, it is labelled U+f0b7. I think that's some kind of unicode. Each item in the list view has the symbol, then a description, and a  Spoken column. The visual interface had the word bullet. I don't know how to get that information non-visually.  Do you know if there's a way?

And I'm alright chasing wild geese now and then. I had no idea about the punctuations settings.  I appreciate your response. It was an interesting adventure.

run the selected search. This is mighty convenient because you never have to
use your mouse or slide on the trackpad to click on the search bar.

Switch to Fullscreen

While playing a YouTube video you can simply press the F key to switch to
full screen. If the video is already in full screen, pressing F will switch
it back to the normal view.

You can also press the F11 on the keyboard to toggle between Fullscreen
modes in Windows PCs.

Enable or Disable Closed Captions

Many YouTube videos have auto-generated closed captions for people with a
hearing disability. Closed captions are also helpful when you're in an
environment where you can't really rely on audio. They're also helpful if
you're watching something in a language you don't fully understand, or maybe
you don't get the accent.

You can turn on or turn off closed captions with YouTube keyboard shortcuts
by simply pressing "C" on the keyboard.

Open YouTube Mini-Player in the Bottom Right


YouTube mini-player keyboard shortcuts

Another cool feature not many people know about on YouTube is the YouTube
mini-player. Yes, you can actually continue to browse YouTube while your
video plays without having to open another tab or anything. Press I while
the video is playing to move the video into the bottom right corner.

So, there they are, some of the most useful YouTube keyboard shortcut keys
that we found. Whether you are a power user, a nerd, or a regular Joe who is
used to clicking things, these YouTube shortcut keys above should prove very
useful.

Hi all,
I was just wondering, are there any keystrokes for using Youtube (watching
videos) with Jaws? Using latest versions of Edge, Jaws and Windows 11.

moderated In-depth formatting in Word

Christine Laton <christinelaton@...>
 

Hi,

I have another question with Word. Are there any resources out there about how best to cope with outline formatting, e.g., bullets, multiple levels, etc.? I am working with a template that has most of it in place, but I occasionally need to adjust something, and I’m not sure how to do it without messing everything up.

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Christine


moderated Need Adobe guru

Christine Laton <christinelaton@...>
 

Hi, for my job, I need to work with Adobe pro to highlight in a PDF document. Any tips on how to do this?

Second question: I was working with a document that had some scanned pages and some already in PDF text pages. JAWS did not even tell me that the scanned pages were there. Any way to fix a setting to give me more information? Or anywhere that I can find keystrokes to automatically run the Adobe OCR on the entire document?


Thanks in advance,
Christine

Thanks, Bill! I knew there were alternative methods for saving messages, but I couldn’t think of any of them, and this one is so intuitive.

Hi, Kestrel. If you're trying to save an email you are composing, ALT plus S should send it. If you're trying to save an email you received as an 'msg' file so you can open it later, and keep it as a file, try f12, for Save As.

Subject: Outlook won't let me use al f to save emails

 

I’ve had this issue on and off before, but last time I solved it through random key presses and dumb luck, so I don’t remember specifically what I did to fix it.

 

I’m running Windows 10, Office 365, and Jaws 2022, the latest update.

 

The issue is that when I am in Outlook and I read an email I want to save, when I press alt f to invoke the file menu, no menus appear, and Windows just makes the ding sound that indicates you can’t do that.

 

When I am in the inbox list of emails and I first press enter to get into an email I want to read, Jaws says “Read only” before reading the email.

 

I know there is a reading pane checkbox somewhere on the ribbon, but I know I have that set to the correct setting to allow me to read everything, because I checked this the previous time I had this issue.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks! That command works to move a message to a folder.

 

I still can’t use alt f, however, which means I can’t save a message as a file, or use other commands on the file menu. It’s very puzzling to me.

To save a message, either press escape to leave it intact or move it to a desired folder with control-shift-v.

Hi, Mike. I believe you mean INSERT plus Z, to turn off the virtual cursor.
INSERT plus T would only announce the Title Bar.

Thanks for posting all this. One other point that should mention that for
these KB commands to work is that we, JAWS users, have to press insert+t
to get out of the virtual mode.
This, by far, is the most complete list I've seen on this topic and
includes something I have been curious to play with, that "c" command for
bringing up the caption mode.
What I am hoping to discover is whether this will allow for clipping of
text from a video for quick easy review and searching later offline and
for saving of the info in a text searchable form.
And, oh yes, Madison, thanks for raising the question which prompted
Bill's thorough list.

Mike,

There is a bullet there but in the list view, it is labelled U+f0b7. I think that's some kind of unicode. Each item in the list view has the symbol, then a description, and a  Spoken column. The visual interface had the word bullet. I don't know how to get that information non-visually.  Do you know if there's a way?

And I'm alright chasing wild geese now and then. I had no idea about the punctuations settings.  I appreciate your response. It was an interesting adventure.

Hi,

I've never been clear on what exactly the difference between the Virtual

description of the differences between them?

Thanks.

By the way, Kestrel, if you use F12 to save an email as a message file, the usual location where it will be saved is Documents, or C:\Users\"Username"\Documents, where "Username" is the name by which you are known in your Windows User Account.
