JAWS and Oracle SQL Developer

Ekstrand, Pamela A. -ND
 

Is anyone using Oracle’s SQL developer program with JAWS? 

 

I am running Windows 10 with the latest version of JAWS 2021.

 

I just downloaded the SQL developer program and when I run it, it does not speak at all.

 

I have seen references to needing to have Java Access Bridge installed, but didn’t know if this was still the case with newer versions of the software.

 

If anyone is successfully using SQL Developer or has any suggestions, please let me know.

 

Thanks,

Pam

Hi, Loreal. You must go to the status line by repeatedly pressing F6 until you are in the status line. Then make sure Word Count is checked on the Status Line. Then when you press JAWS key plus Page Down, you should hear Word Count.

Hi Loreal,

Is the word document window maximized?

Try windows key + up arrow, and then try the status command again.

OK so since my last question went so well here’s another one.  I have to be able to accurately get a word count with my documents for one particular client.  I can have documents with as few as 100 words or as many as 15,000 words.  It used to be that when I opened a document I could immediately on opening the document use the JAWS key combination of JAWS Key plus Page Down and get the page and word counts.  Now JAWS says “page one of” however many pages followed by “spelling and grammar check no errors.”  How do I get it to continue saying the word count in the document instead of using the virtual ribbon and layered menus?  I know I can always do alt, R, P for proofing, then W for word count.  From there I have to enable to virtual cursor and get the word count from the dialogue that pops up.  Any suggestions on how to make this process a bit faster and go back to the way JAWS used to say things?  Should I turn off the spelling and grammar checker as documents are being typed?  Does that even have any effect on what I’m doing/attempting to do?

headings aren't completely announced

Mario
 

using Word 2010, I have a Word document from the Internet with more than 20 headings, but JAWS doesn't announce the whole name of the heading when I press h after turning on quick keys mode. what do I have to do to get Jaws to announce the whole heading as I press h?

Re: JAWS Voice Sometimes becomes Stifled

Richard B. McDonald
 

I seem to have discovered the problem.  Somehow, the JAWS voice volume setting under Options>Voices>Voice Adjustment was set at ~67%; thereby trimming whatever the master volume was set to by ~33%.  Setting it back to 100% seems to have resolved the problem.

This could be related to sound card drivers or associated settings. Does this still happen if you connect a USB or Bluetooth audio device and use it instead of the default sound device?

Here is the way to do this with Jaws.

 

Select the text you want to highlight in yellow.

Then tap the following three keys speparately, alt, h, i.

The default highlight is Yellow so just hit enter.

Now, because it is a visual thing, Jaws will not report the highlight color, at least, I have not found a way to get Jaws to say squat about the highlight.

To remove the highlight, you simply repeat the steps above.  It is a toggle.

 

My sighted wife help me figure this out.

If you select the words, then use the application key or shift+F10, then hit f for font, tab to Color which is automatic by default and arrow down to standard colors.  And right arrow to yellow and hit enter then tab to OK and hit enter.

The word below is the word yellow, in yellow.

Re: MS Word and highlighting question

Yes, control+alt+h will do it, but the method of highlighting and then hitting alt, h, I at least confirms the color before you hit enter.

That way, if they get a notion to have you use a different color, you can.

If you select the words, then use the application key or shift+F10, then hit f for font, tab to Color which is automatic by default and arrow down to standard colors.  And right arrow to yellow and hit enter then tab to OK and hit enter.

The word below is the word yellow, in yellow.

 

Yellow

So here’s my challenge.  I am typing for a transcription client.  There are points in the text where a note needs to be normal text but the highlight is yellow, not necessarily the text color itself as yellow.  Does that make sense, and how do I go about doing this?  I’m using the latest version of JFW and Word 365.

Select the text that you want to be highlighted. Press alt control H and it will do the job for you

Based off that comment it sounds like there’s something else that needs to be done here.

Re: MS Word and highlighting question

Here is the way to do this with Jaws.

 

Select the text you want to highlight in yellow.

Then tap the following three keys speparately, alt, h, i.

The default highlight is Yellow so just hit enter.

Now, because it is a visual thing, Jaws will not report the highlight color, at least, I have not found a way to get Jaws to say squat about the highlight.

To remove the highlight, you simply repeat the steps above.  It is a toggle.

 

My sighted wife help me figure this out.

HTH,

Thank you very much.  I totally understand highlighting is a visual thing and am trying to do a web search on this point presently.  Thanks again!

Loreal,

Since highlighting is a visual thing, and may not serve a screenreader purpose, the answer may not be forthcoming from this list, and a web search might prove more fruitful for you.
