I have a similar odd message problem that only happens with NY Times newsletters. But I don’t have a Braille display so don’t know if JAWS is still reading.

 

That happens for me is that sometimes JAWS can read the entire message/newsletter but, more often, if I open a link from it, when I go back to the message to read another story, JAWS is silent.  Sometimes I can escape from the original message and start over but sometimes, I need to close Outlook and reopen it.

 

I am using latest JAWS 2022, Office 365 and Windows 10

Hi all,

I’ve noticed that sometimes when I open a message that Jaws goes silent but yet when I arrow through it the contents still show up on my braille display; any idea what could be causing this and what I could do to resolve this? It happens randomly which makes it weirder and harder to know when it’ll happen. Using latest versions of Jaws, Microsoft 365 and Windows 11.

Hi Brenda,

I am not sure if this will be helpful or not. I have AT&T Internet. Several years ago AT&T Suddenly, randomly, blocked access to my work website. when I called them they told me that they thought it was spam or some malicious software because it took up so much data. After I assured them it was me, they unblock the website and all was back to normal. It might be worth a call to AT&T to see if they have blocked you for some reason.

I hope you find a solution soon.

Hello List,

I am not sure if this is really a JAWS question but any thoughts or ideas are appreciated. 

First, I am using JAWS 2021 with Windows 10 and Edge browser.  Also, my innernet access is through an individual hot spot from AT&T which we have been using in our RV for five years without any real difficulty.

Recently I have been unable to completely download any book from the Bard main page.  It will get anywhere from 30 to 60% and then put up an error message saying “download error, title unable to download due to network error”.  I can’t figure out how to get any details about the network error.  When I go back to have it resume the download it doesn’t really resume but starts all over again and never makes it to the end.

Is this some network setting on my computer that might have changed during a windows update or is this possibly an issue with the type/level of internet service from AT&T?  I know that they have recently changed their plans and there seems to be a tiered selection around data/internet.

Any quick suggestions.

Brenda

Notification History and Rules. I got this from Eric at FreedomScientific.


*To Remove Notification History And/Or Rules*

1. Open JAWS Menu with INSERT plus J.

2. Arrow down to Utilities sub menu and press ENTER.

3. Arrow down to Explore Utilities Folder and press ENTER.

4. Arrow down to Explore My Settings and press ENTER.

5. Press BACKSPACE to ascend one folder.

6. Find the folder called Notifications, and press ENTER.

7. To remove notification history, remove the following file,

Notifications.json

8. To remove notification rules, remove the following file,

notification.rules.json

Maddison,

 

Can you tell us what programs are being loaded in the System Tray?

 

Also, can you tell us what programs do you have pinned to your Taskbar?

 

It might be that you have unnecessary programs in the System Tray that you don’t need running and too many programs that are pinned to the Taskbar.

moderated Possible Punctuation Bug

Dennis Brown
 

Can someone try the following and see if you get the same reaction?

 

  1. Load the Settings Center and select Punctuation, then Customize Punctuation…
  2. 2.  You’ll be placed in the list of punctuation with the layout of
  3. Punctuation character, text name of that character, and the punctuation mode for that character
  4. Arrow down the list until you get to one of the following characters.
  5. Number, dollar, and, percent, at
  6. 3. Set the mode for these characters to “none,” then tab to and select Ok.
  7. Then tab to and select “Apply.”

4. Repeat step#1 and arrow dow the list.  Do those characters speak twice

So instead of

Number, the character itself,

Then number, the text name,

Then none, the mode,

I get the character announced twice, then the text name, then the mode, such as,

Number number number none

At at at none

Dollar dollar dollar none

Percent percent percent none

And and and none

 

Anyone else get this?

 

Thanks,

Dennis T. Brown

moderated Re: Moving between tabs in Edge

Gene Warner
 

It looks like I spoke too soon. After doing the JAWS repair, then restarting my PC, the problem with the tabs was gone as well as Insert+V from within Edge producing an unknown function call error was also gone, I then played a game of Spoonbill Solitaire, I then went back into Edge to do some browsing, and both problems were back! Thinking that the game may have left the system in some unknown state that was affecting JAWS, I did a restart, but still those two problems remained.

Sometimes I think we should just dump all this technology, all too often it seems like we take a step forward, only to fall back two steps and land on our butts

Hi everyone!

Time was that in Microsoft Edge, when you used control+tab to switch
from one tab to another, JAWS would read the page title which made it
easy to find the tab you wanted, but now JAWS reads what ever is where
the cursor is. Is there a way to have JAWS read the page titles like it
used to or is this something that Freedom Scientific has to fix themselves?

Thanks!
