The instructions below,will take you to the advanced tab, under the Device Properties for your device, as long as you have the appropriate software installed, which has the Advanced Tab included.
 
1. Tap the Windows Key, and type:
 
adjust Volume
 
After you type the first 3 letters of adjust, JAWS should say, "adjust Volume System Settings". Press ENTER, to open it.
 
2. Tap the TAB key until JAWS says, "Related Settings sound Settings link". Press ENTER to open the link. The item which JAWS announces, should be the output device which Windows is using.
 
3. TAB once, to highlight the "Device Properties link". Press ENTER, to open the link.
 
4. Pres, SHIFT+TAB, until you hear JAWS say, "Additional Properties link". Press ENTER, to open the link.
 
5. Press CTRL+SHIFT+TAB twice, you should land on the "Advance Tab".
 
6. If you make any changes and you want to save them, TAB to the "Apply" button and press the SPACE BAR, or, use the Windows short cut keystroke, Press ALT+A.
 
7. TAB to the "OK" button and either Press the SPACE BAR or, the ENTER key, to close the window.
 
8. Press ALT+F4, to close the "Adjust Volume" program.

Which audio driver are you currently using? That tab is there with some drivers but not with others. I had an issue where I reinstalled the Realtek driver that included MaxxAudio and that tab disappeared. When I Googled it, I learned that the enhancements tab wasn't included in that version of the driver. As soon as I went back to the High Definition driver, I got it back.

I’m currently on my iPad, but the driver that you’re looking for is included in windows. It’s the High Definition Audio driver.

Hi. I haven’t dealt with Access Bridge for a long time, but no one else has responded so here are what I hope will be a few pointers.

 

Notes for one of the JAWS 19 releases indicates that JAWS has been updated to work with Access Bridge as currently configured.

 

What I always think of as Java Access Bridge may have changed its name to Windows Access Bridge. Originally developed by Sun Micro Systems, the last I knew, it was owned by Oracle.

 

Here are some notes I made to myself a few years ago, so they may not be current:

 

As Mike B suggested, there is a download link. It's hard to find, but this link should take you to the actual download page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jab-2-0-2-download-354311.html

Note that before the download link is displayed, you must check the box accepting Oracle's license agreement, which appears on that page. Once you've checked it, Oracle will graciously thank you and produce the link. Some arrowing down is required.

Once I clicked on the link, I followed Mike's suggestion of selecting “open” instead of “save.”

 

To ensure the information is current, maybe Google “Access Bridge,” locate a download link, and install it. It ought to work with JAWS.

Hello everyone.

 

I am not sure how to solve my problem, but hopefully someone with more expertise than I can point me in the right direction.

 

I am currently evaluating a music library grooming application called Songkong. It comes recommended by a specialist retailer of premium audio equipment.

 

When I load, it refers to problems because Access Bridge is not installed. The error reports this, so Windows is telling SongKong that there is a screen reader.

 

Is Access Bridge a tool for software developers, a utility for end-users or something else. If I download it, what happens to Jaws? Anything else that I should be aware of?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Opening email in office 365 web version

 

Ann,

Also have a look at this page regarding Outlook on the web and accessibility:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/accessibility-support-for-outlook-a8267cc4-aba3-4045-81d7-df11b016f2fe#PickTab=Web 

This is the main page for Office Accessibility:  Use a screen reader and keyboard shortcuts with Office apps

Once on that page, there are links for the various Office apps.  Then on the respective pages for a given app, there are tabs, for lack of a better term, for the various environments in which they run.  For Outlook those are Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Web.

Hi,

Running JAWS 2021 with Outlook 365 on Windows 10 here at work.  I’ve noticed a quirk in Outlook in the last while and just got around to doing some more thorough testing today. Wondering if anyone else can replicate this.

 

I’ll be working in Outlook.  I will want to go to my contacts to check the spelling of a name or such and so I’ll use Control 3 to move to Contacts.  Immediately, Outlook will close and, if I was typing a message,  I will lose any email message I am in the process of typing. From what I can tell, this only happens if I’m in the inbox and then go to contacts.  If I go to calendar, taks list or back t inbox using the similar keysotrikes, no problem. I doesn’t happen every time, but at least 50% of the time and likely more. Same occurs if I revert back to JAWS 2020, so it’s not a recent JAWS change, but could be an Office update.  I could not replicate the problem when not running a speech program. When I tested with Narrator, it occurred once, but then I tried several more times and couldn’t get it to do it again.   At home I am running JAWS 2021 and the retail version of Outlook 2016 and cannot replicate the issue.

 

Can some of you on office 365 test this?  Just use Control, 1, Control 2 and Control 3 to move between sections.  As I said, I think I only get the issue if I’m going from the Mail to Contacts.

I just tried on my outlook, still working fine.
you might want to do a scanpst or scanost to check if the pst is the problem and it might help to repair it.
there's also a chance, the addons or plugins might be causing the problem. open outlook in safe mode, before you hit enter on outlook shortcut, hold the ctrl key and it will triggle safe mode.
after you do the repair on your pst or ost, and safe mode makes your outlook works fine, then you just need to find out which addons is causing the problem.
