Yeah.
The righ click menu is convenient for that. Thankfully it isn't your only recourse (see my previous message).
Hopefully either JAWS or Firefox will fix this in an update. As it seems fine with nVDA it would seem that the onus is more on the JAWS side of things, though I don't know what could have caused this to happen.

Do you normally use the right-click menu? That is the only thing I
notice odd with 102, but since my normal interaction is to use the
right-click menu and "open in new window" (rather than tab) I find 102
extremely frustrating.

I can't even use jaws' "route PC to jaws" command and then the
physical right mouse button.

Hi, Morey. Somehow the folder in question is now being sorted by some other criteria than by date, perhaps details, list, or tiles. You need to go into the Sort By menu, and reselect date as your sorting criteria. This can be accomplished by unselecting all files in the folder, then right click the folder with the folder open, arrow down to Sort By, and choose Date, and press ENTER.

moderated Is "Eloq.sbl" Still Applicable?

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
Is "Eloq.sbl" still applicable in later versions of JAWS like JAWS 2021? The reason why I'm asking this is because I want to add some characters that JAWS seems to ignore when I type them. Particularly things like smileys and characters of foreign languages like Japanese, Russian, Hebrew, and Greek. By the way, what's the difference between "Eloq.sbl", "Eloqmain.dct", and "Eloquence.vpf"?

I use FireFox 91.11.0ESR 32 bit in my windows 64 and it works well for
everything.
I think the start to this thread mentions youtube.
I keep my youtube set to not play videos automatically, and I wait a minute
before using the letter B to find the play button, because that allows time
for an ad to play out before starting the video.
I usually do alt D while I'm waiting and copy the URL, so if I get
interrupted with a commercial, I close the window with control W and paste
the URL into Pontes downloader.
Well, if the URL is already in the clipboard, it will get loaded when I open
Pontes.

moderated JAWS speaking lines from previous screens

Gene Warner
 

Hi everyone!

I'm curious if anyone has noticed this apparent bug that for me has been there for quite a while. I copied this from an email I just sent to Freedom Scientific.

While visiting the Walmart web site at
www.walmart.com
whenever I'd use the form field list (insert+F5) or the links list (insert+F7) JAWS reads lines from the about JAWS dialog I viewed earlier before it
reads from the list I called up. See the speech history below, it is from just after pressing insert+F5.

--- speech history ---
JAWS Version 2022.2206.9 ILM
Walmart.com | Save Money. Live Better - Profile 1 - Microsoft Edge
Select a Form Field dialog
---  end ---

To be honest JAWS frequently reads lines from screens that were closed a while ago. It's like JAWS does not completely clear the speech buffer after it has said something thus leaving some garbage behind to be unnecessarily read again and again.

Here's another example, this one was from visiting amazon.com and calling up the JAWS find dialog.

---speech history ---
JAWS Version 2022.2206.9 ILM

Find what: edit combo
--- end ---

You can see that same line from the about JAWS dialog being read yet again. And again this dialog was closed hours ago.

Actually, by checking every verbosity element in the list, you can theoretically configure all verbosity levels to be identical, and you can certainly get the advanced verbosity to say "copied to clipboard". Select the Long messages radio button and OK out of the dialogue.

Eileen Scrivani
 

Is there a possibility that your SMA for Jaws has run Out? If it has perhaps that is why you no longer get the update notices. In fact, when I called them yesterday about my issue with the FS Cast bombing out in the middle of playing, I asked about my SMA and when I'm due to renew. If I update now or some time before July 28 I'll get a discount off the SMA price. These discounts are run during the ACB & NFB conventions so you might want to look into it. Technically I'm good to the end of the year but I'll get the updated SMA now for a little savings.

HTH.

Hello back,

Thanks for all the helpful replies. But as I was mentioning earlier, even though I am still using the October or November 2021 release of jaws 2022, I am no longer getting that automatic pop up window when my jaws first starts up asking me if I want to yes or no update my jaws to a newer release of jaws 2022?

I was until about 3 or 4 days ago getting this automatic pop up window asking me if I yes or no wanted to update my jaws every time when my jaws first started up, but now I am not. This has got me stumped because as I was saying, I am still using the last October or November 2021 release of jaws 2022. I have already checked in jaws under basics, and the automatic notification of jaws updates is yes checked.

I am really hoping that maybe someone has an idea on how I can get back this automatic pop up window asking me if I want to yes or no update my jaws to a newer release of jaws 2022 when my jaws first starts up? Would be very, very appreciative for any help on this matter. Much, much thanks in advance for any possible help on this.







With kindest regards,

Hank

Hello:

" Wait, didn't I hear on the FSCast that they had changed that behavior so that you were notified of newer versions even if that newer version is a major version upgrade and not just a point version update?"

If you hold the JAWS Home Annual License, what you say is accurate. But if you are on the traditional licensing scheme, you will not automatically be notified when a major update comes out—usually around the end of October.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong

Hello,
Now when my jaws first starts up I no longer get that notification
update pop up window in which I can select yes or no to update jaws
or not. And no I have not yet updated my October or November 2021
release of jaws 2022 to the latest release of 2022.
I have checked under options in jhaws and the automatic notification
of updates is checked.
This really has me stumped. Anyone maybe please have any ideas on
how I can get back this pop up window when I first start my October
or November 2021 release of jaws 2022? Much, much thanks in advance
for any help I can maybe get with this.
With kindest regards,
Hank

Not the same as firefox at all.  This is actually the first major problem I've had with firefox in several years of use.  Its main advantages are: easier to get to my bookmarks, menu interface more like windows and less like a dog's breakfast, and the facebook container plug-in, which is nice for keeping facebook from knowing every website you visit on the web.  If I had to use a chromium browser full-time, I'd use brave as much as I could.  I do use chrome for a few things, but they can't fix a poor design.

Sorry. Wrong email. Firefox is not the browser to be using these days. You should switch to Chrome or Edge Chromium. Both of these behave pretty much the same as Firefox without breaking things for the blind.

Right now, I'd say it is a don't download. The applications key doesn't
seem to work with jaws running, and neither do keys like the k for
play/stop in youtube. Applications key works fine in NVDA, go figure.

That is a very broad question. If you have never created a spreadsheet before, I recommend listening to a couple webinars from Freedom Scientific on the topic.  Here is one I found on the webinar page:

https://www.freedomscientific.com/webinars/excel-tips-and-trick-for-jaws-users/

 

After that, we can help with issues.
