Hello:

The controversy arises when a person wants to have JAWS turned off during the update or installation. JAWS used to have a self-voicing installer which appears no longer to be present today. Worst case scenario, turn off JAWS, turn on Narrator, run the update. Easy peasy.

I'm confused. I just installed the new update. Throughout, I tracked the steps and progress as JAWS verbalized them.

What exactly is the controversy?

Hi, Gene. I believe Freedom Scientific intentionally removed the self voicing installer from JAWS, because now, Narrator can be used to monitor the install.

I just did the update and sent Freedom Scientific tech support a message, ever since the beginning of the year, or somewhere around there, the installer's self voicing feature hasn't worked. I prefer to exit JAWS once the installer starts, I find that there are fewer possibilities for trouble that way.

Hi everyone. I am having a weird problem with Jaws. When Jaws turns on, it informs me that an update is available. However, I get the following message. "The following updates are available. List view, 0 items." Pressing tab, there is a cancel button, and that's it. There does not appear to be an actual update for Jaws. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I am running Windows 11, version 21h2, and Jaws version 2022.

Hi Murray,
Just a shot in the dark, but maybe turning off virtual cursor with insert + Z while in the spreadsheet would help.

Hi there,

My work colleagues have asked me to do some work with them on a shared document. This takes the form of an xlsx document that appears to open in some kind of Google office online much like a web page.

Normally I have no problem navigating a spreadsheet however the controls on this shared document are confusing me. The document opens with Jaws seemingly bouncing in out of forms several times, I can tell this by the Jaws noises to indicate such. I sometimes find myself in the main document but more often that not I am stuck in some tool bar and can find no logical way of getting out of it.

 

I was wondering if anyone successfully uses these sort of things and what tips you may have.

 

The document also appears to slow down Jaws navigation. For example, I would normally jump from one cell to the next with automatic response whereas with this document sometimes it can take a second or so to pop to the next cell

Any help most welcome, it is sort of doing my head in J

moderated Re: JAWS and column titles in excel?

Ann Byrne
 

JAWS supports more than one set of titles in a sheet.

If your last cell to be included were f8,
1. Place the cursor at the beginning of the row of column titles.
2. use the applications menu to locate "define name dot-dot-dot" and press enter.
then type "columntitle..f8"

To set titles for a second region, be sure to include the ending cell in the bookmark.

Good luck!

For a slightly more in depth explanation go to

moderated JAWS and column titles in excel?

Gene Warner
 

Along the same lines as a previous topic about this but with a twist.

I have a spreadsheet that has a couple of tables in it.

Is it possible to get JAWS to read the column titles based on which table I am in? Or does JAWS only support one set of titles in each sheet.

Thanks!

No controversy, in the past the JAWS installer was self voiced, it did not need a screen reader running to have a voice.

Subject: strange issue when checking for Jaws updates

Hi everyone. I am having a weird problem with Jaws. When Jaws turns on, it informs me that an update is available. However, I get the following message. "The following updates are available. List view, 0 items." Pressing tab, there is a cancel button, and that's it. There does not appear to be an actual update for Jaws. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I am running Windows 11, version 21h2, and Jaws version 2022.

Hello:

I am not experiencing this issue, but I do have Windows 10. There was an update released today. You can download it directly off of the Freedom Scientific website. Here is the direct download link.

You can absolutely copy in kindle. Select the text you want to copy. Press control c as you normally would to copy. It will put you in an area of check boxes you can arrow through to select different highlight colors. Ignore this unless you want to highlight. If you hit tab once you can add a note. If you tab again you land on a copy button. Press it. You can now paste the text where ever you wish, and kindle includes information that sights your book for you.

Speech history?  I'd test it, but I think it conflicted with my hotkey for starting k1000 and I gave it the heave-ho.

As Richard said, the Kindle for PC app is very accessible. If you're reading for enjoyment, then the IOS app is great. If you need to navigate text, copy, etc., the I would recommend Kindle for PC.
