Try the shift key, the caps lock key, and the letter B.

 

This is what works on my Windows 10 Dell computer here.

First you realithee I hope that JAWS 2021 is still on your computer so you can see if it is a jaws change or the web site? 
Also, generally using insert-f will bring up a tool to serch a websith. There are also sometimes ways to label 1fields that were not probably labeled by the web developer.

I don't use Gmail, but I would add it under Gmail because it would seem that this way the Contact is stored on Gmail servers and it will sync to your PC or any other device you may have. If you ever buy a new PC it should then also be a simple matter of setting up your Gmail account again and everything should sync and you don't have to worry about having a backup of your data file which you must then copy back to a new computer etc.

Hm. I was in a meeting yesterday (using a rather old JFW version mind

It says your name and then, "currently muted", or something, if you are muted.

Hey there, Ed, Brian Zolo here in Gahanna, Ohio, feel free to call me BZ, grin!  That’s not the only thing that’s not working in jaws 2022.  I ended up notifying vispero technical support that changing apps by file types isn’t working either and it works fine in jaws 2021.  They were able to duplicate the issue and generated a ticket so don’t hesitate to get back in touch with them and see if they can reproduce the problem.  Have a great weekend!  BZ!

I should have mentioned that I can unload Jaws2022 and load Jaws2021 and all Jaws reading keystrokes work as expected in Kindle books. If I switch back to Jaws2022 nothing but Kindle keystrokes work to read a Kindle text. Jaws2022 appears to be broken for reading Kindle books.

moderated Re: Synonym searching with JAWS

Adrian Spratt
 

IN answer to mark’s question, no, JAWS find cannot search for synonyms. The most convenient way I know to find synonyms is to open Google, go into the search field, and type the word synonyms followed by a colon, then a space, then the word. Thus:

synonyms: dog

 

FYI, you could download a program called WordWeb which enables you to focus on a word in your document and get a definition, synonyms, similars, and so on. the information it provides is limited, but often a quick way of getting this kind of information. “Puppy” and other names for dogs might fall under the “similars” category.

I think this question has been asked before, but I haven't been able to find an answer. Suppose I am interested in dogs. There are many synonyms for dog, like puppy, poodle, terrier, German Shepard, and so on.
Could I configure JAWS so that when I do control + f and type dog, it will also search for any of these synonyms? 


moderated Re: Synonym searching with JAWS

Mark
 

You're right Don. Thanks for saying that. I suppose the feature I'm talking about would be better called "find related words".  A simplified example could be a user configures JAWS to search for the words login, log in, sign on, sign in, sign up, sign-up, connect, or "go to" when searching for the word "sign in". Each of those variants have different spacing and hyphens but are related in a way the user thinks is meaningful. The user could configure it for other things. Like making a search for the word "hiring" match with words or phrases such as: employment, join our team, opportunities, staffing, hiring, etc. It would be up to the user to decide those related words.

I have installed Jaws 2022 on my computers and have had trouble reading Kindle books on both my desktop and laptop computers. I have been accustomed to reading by using Jaws keystrokes as I would read a Word or other document. Now, however, the only way I can read is to enable “text to speech” in Kindle (Ctrl t) and start or pause reading with the shift-spacebar keystroke. I cannot navigate the text by character, word, sentence, or any of the standard Jaws ways of reading a text. This is occurring in books that I had begun reading prior to installing Jaws 2022 and had been using Jaws keyboard commands to navigate and read the Kindle books. From this description can anyone diagnose something that I am doing wrong? Is this a giant step backwards in reading Kindle content with this version of Jaws?

Many thanks in advance for any restorative suggestions.

moderated Re: Outlook account/contacts issues

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

First o fall , when you set up an Outlook.com account in the Outlook desktop client and you enter the user name and password it automatically creates the account and Exchange Active Sync if that is still what Microsoft calls it will be used. It is in my opinion a better protocol than IMAP, but I don't really want to go there because some probably argue it is the other way around.

Anyways, when you say you imported messages, what does this exactly mean? Did you bring messages from another mail account into the new Outlook.com account?

You might want to take a look at the account settings, by default Outlook syncs only I believe 3 months or so of messages, but you can adjust this from as little as 1 day to All, if you leave it say at 1 year and you have messages that are older they are not lost, but they won't be synced to your computer.
To change this go to File > Account Settings and if there is only one account tab to "Change" and activate it, you will hear:

Download email for the past left right slider 11

You would probably hear a lower number because 11 is the value if you want to sync/download all mail, here is what the numbers mean (you can review this with the Jaws cursor):

1 = 1 day
2 = 3 days
3 = 1 week
4 = 2 weeks
5 = 1 month
6 = 3 months
7 = 6 months
8 = 1 year
9 = 2 years
10 = 5 years
11 = All

Take care,
Sieghard

Subject: Outlook account/contacts issues

Hi all,
Not sure if any of these issues can be fixed, but I figured I'd ask since you guys have helped me out before. I created an outlook.com account on Monday and since Tuesday I've had some issues that I'd like fixed. I have a bunch of old messages that I've kept and when I imported everything they were in my inbox, but yesterday I looked and I noticed that the oldest message that was there was from a year ago, but I had ones from 2018, 2019 and earlier in 2020. I also have 5 folders within my inbox and I noticed yesterday that all of the messages that were in one of the folders were gone as well. Any idea what could've happened to all of these messages between when I imported everything and yesterday, and also is there any way I might be able to get them back? Before anyone asks/assumes I didn't delete any of them, if I was going to do that I would've done that before I imported stuff. I don't look at any of these messages regularly, but I kept them just in case I ever needed/wanted to refer back to any of the info in any of them. Now when I imported all of my contacts I got some message saying that they couldn't be imported into this folder (the contacts one in outlook that comes up when you press control 3) so they'd be placed in another folder with the same name and that got put up where the sent and junk folders and those sorts of folders are. So I went into it and I was able to read through my contacts, but I wasn't able to do anything with them, like delete or edit any of them. Any idea why I might've gotten this message and if there's any way that I can get my contacts back into the normal contacts folder so that I can do stuff with them again when I need/want too? Now this account isn't an imap account like my other two accounts are, it's a Microsoft exchange account, I didn't ask for it to be created like this, it's just how it happened, could this explain any of my issues? I'd love to have it be an imap account, but not sure if it's possible to change this and even if it is I don't know how to do it. I'm using the latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really hope there's something that can be done to help me, any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!!! Thanks Madison
