list of 3 items
• Resolved a customer reported issue with the 8400 series of Outlook 365 updates where JAWS was not automatically reading the suggested addresses when
typing in the address fields of a new message. To check your Outlook 365 version, use the JAWS command CTRL+INSERT+V while focused in Outlook.
• Addressed issues where Edge would unexpectedly stop working while navigating on various pages.
• Added new Research It lookup sources to the French version of JAWS for two libraries for the blind in France.

Hi Maria,
 
I don't use TBird, but have you checked to see if your Status Bar is checked / turned on?  If it isn't, that could be the problem.

Re: JAWS 16 is getting hanged with Firefox 56

Hi, You have to have Jaws 18 that was just released this morning or stay with Fire Fox pre v55. There have been major changes to the way FF works and that requires changes in the Screen readers too.

PS: Repairing JAWS also did not help. Currently JAWS 16.0.4474 with
Firefox 56 (64 bit) is running on Windows7 64 bit.

Please let me know is there any solution for the same.

Re: Does anyone know of a Dictionary compatible with JAWS?

 

I've always liked the onelook.com multi-dictionary search.  Since it's a webpage and the results are links to the definitions in various dictionaries it works reasonably well with screen readers, though some of the online dictionaries themselves have more (or less) accessibility friendly pages.  You quickly figure out which one or ones are your "go to"s.

Re: Web Browser Accessibility And A Keyboard Shortcut Related Questions And Vocalizer Expressive

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

I suggest you simply download Chrome and give it a try, it's free after all and for the most part you'll find it much the same as IE, all the same quick nav keys work and you can arrow down the page and Jaws will read it with the virtual cursor just as IE. You may find a few sites where if Chrome doesn't read certain information going back to IE will work and that's perfectly fine as IE won't go away any time soon.

Sieghard

Hi there. Thanks for answering my questions. The only reason I'm trying to stay away from Ie is that it's going out since Microsoft is not updating it so often other than security Updates. Firefox I heard was kind of laggy and Microsoft Edge isn't fully accessible yet. So I'm left with Chrome. Secondly what would I see with Jaws when a page is loaded and I don't press Insert + F7 to bring up the links list? Once I press Insert + F7 is pressed what do I have to do to bring up the previwhs screen? Is there a way so that I can go on the Nuance site with my iPhone and listen to their vocalizer?

Hi there! As far as web browsers go, it really depends on what you're
trying to do. Some things still work better with IE than they do
other browsers. Conversely, some applications are better when using
Firefox or Google Chrome. I'm a big fan of Chrome, because of its
speed. I find that it crashes way less then IE does. Insert plus F7
works in all browsers, along with the other JAWS hot keys that are used for web-site navigation.

Hi there everyone. My name is Owais and I'm new to this list have
some questions regarding the topics mentioned in the Subject Line. I
don't have Jaws but will be getting it quite soon. Last time I tried
Jaws with Internet Explorer I loved it. Never have tried it with
Firefox or Chrome. My prefered Browser that I've used the most is
Chrome. What's the level of accessibility Jaws has with Chrome? When I
tried Jaws with Internet Explorer I found that there's a Keystroke
which is Insert+F7 to bring up the list of links. Is this shortcut for
Ie only or is it for other Browsers as well? Lastly I heard that in
Jaws 18 Freedom Scientific added a new Vocalizer. I heard it has a lot
of Apple Voices. If that's true does it have Alex from iOs. I kind of
found Microsoft David similar to Alex but it's quite laggy is what I find.
Sincerely,
Owais

And why is the subscribed check box not checked and when I try to check that with space bar in jaws, does not do that. Any ideas.
