Hi James,

 

Thanks so much.  There was a lot of other stuff in that combo box and I guess I must have missed it.  Got it now

Hey Pam,

 

The button you’re looking for, at least for me, says “attachments and shortcuts”. Activate that, you’re dropped into an edit combobox. If you down arrow a few times, you should come to “upload a file from your computer”. I can’t tell you how many times to down arrow, because that depends on how your particular shortcuts and other utilities in that list are set up.

Hi All,

 

For anyone who uses Slack, can you tell me how to attach a file to be sent using JAWS?  There used to be a button that would let you upload a file from your laptop, but I think something may have changed with the interface.  I can find the “Send Now” button easily, but it is greyed out since I haven’t attached a file yet.

 

When I google this, it says to drag and drop the file, or click on the plus button next to where you type your message.  I cannot get either of those methods to work using JAWS.

 

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

 

Pam

Hi!
There are many videos on YouTube if you just search for using Google Drive with JAWS.
Also, on the Freedom Scientific website there are webinars that they have done on using Google Drive!
There are just a few commands to learn, and you are set!

Re: Table of Contents in Word document

Hi,

 

I just performed the same task that I was taught to write my college papers.

  1. Create a heading using the style tab using CTRL enter rather than just pressing the heading level button in the style tab
  2. Create a table of content -Automatic style 2
  3. Then put the table on its own page.
  4. Using both return and enter key, it worked

Indeed there is, assuming you are using JAWS 2022 the latest version.

 

INSERT+SPACE, then V, then J. Use up/down arrow keys to make the adjustment and Escape to finish.

 

If you are running an older version of JAWS, you will need to invoke sndvol through the Windows Run command.

Is there a way to adjust the volume of JAWS independently of other apps with the keyboard e.g. if I have music playing, can I turn up JAWS a bit more to gove the top of the music better when it is speaking?

How do I turn off JAWS listening for voice commands and instructions please?

I Went through the startup wizard but it doesn’t seem to be there.

I Can’t remember the command to start it listening either.

Re: Table of Contents in Word document

Van Lant, Robin
 

Brian, Navigation on an iPhone is a good way for me to think about your point. If VoiceOver is running and my sighted family members try to tap on a button for me, they usually  forget that they have to first touch the button once to bring focus to that button before invoking the action with the tap.

Robin,

I can't say where anything actually came from, but this is not new.  If a hyperlink in a document is for an external webpage, you must hit CTRL + Click (or its equivalent) to activate it once you have focus on it.

For what I'll call "navigation hyperlinks" that move you around inside a document, the use of CTRL has never been necessary.  If you're sighted, you just click on the link.  If you're using a screen reader, you make sure the link is selected (which is probably what's happening when you are moving into the link text) and activate it.

I'm sure that whether a given link both has focus and is selected is directly dependent on how you have your screen reader settings configured.  I can't remember where these would be or what they're called in JAWS, but in NVDA if you configure it such that it doesn't automatically switch from browse to focus mode when you land on a control, then landing on the control does not select it, so activating it does nothing.

One of the things I have the greatest difficulty explaining, and in both directions, is that a left click on something simultaneously selects and activates when the thing clicked on has an associated action.  In a screen reader, selection and activation are two separate things, very often performed (in that order) in rapid succession, but just gaining focus on something, and even selecting it, does not activate it.  But if you mouse (left) click on something with an actual mouse selection and activation both occur through that one action.

Re: Table of Contents in Word document

Bill, I thought David was wrong, too, but once I arrow into the link even one character, hitting return is opening the link.  I’m with you that I could have sworn this was not the case in the past and it would just have put a  line break in the middle of the link, but that is not happening.  If I don’t arrow into the link first, Word does bump the link to the next line when I hit Enter.  I am pleasantly surprised.  On a related note, Now, if I start typing while in the middle of the link, it does add characters, but the Enter key open the link.

To expand a bit, you can also adjust the system volume similarly:

INSERT+SPACE, V, then S. Use the up and down arrow keys to make any adjustments and Escape when finished.

And I believe you are incorrect.  And hitting Enter on a number of links in a document several seconds ago shows that to be so.

I have a document with many links that download various files.  Hitting Enter when on any of them causes the Save dialog for that file to come up, which I'm cancelling.

Hyperlinks are edited by gaining focus and hitting CTRL + K.  Heaven knows how many times I've had to do this, but it's in the thousands by now.
