Well, I get the th superscript. I just try and change the language on the
keyboard as, I put it down to accidently typing in a different language.
Most of the time though,, I just leave the th out. Thus it says 20, instead
of 20th. I just proof read this email and it didn't say superscript.
Strange.

All,



I've been using JFW for almost 20 years and should know the answer to this
question but I can't seem to figure it out.

When typing a message in Outlook, how can I stop JAWS from announcing

Re: Your expirience with the Logitech K780 computer keyboard

While I have occasionally received meaningful answers fro Logitech, their usual response is to lok at the web site where everything is in pictures.  The few times I have been able to get someone to understand that pictures don’t tell a blind person very much they e-mail me the same information that is on their site.

 

I’ve had good results with their equipment but I usually have to have a friend in another state go to a store and look at the actual device before I can determine if I can use it.

Hi,

I’m lookin into a new full-size computer keyboard for my Windows machine with bluetooth connectivity for my iPhone. I would like to know your thoughts on this Logitech K780 specific keyboard if you have it. Also, does this keyboard have an application key? I spoke with someone at Logitech earlier this week and they didn’t seem to know  what II was talking about. Thanks,

I changed the label for windows to a blank edit box and now, if I press the key, it dows not speak.  If I press it with other keys, it still speaks the label of the other key, though.  For example, windows key plus r now becomes r and windows key e becomes e, etc. 

When I tried clicking on mute, I received an error message stating that this key was used with other commands and couldn't be muted, or somethig to that affect.

Re: Document settings for reading in IE

Randy Barnett <randy@...>
 

I just reread your post and it sounds like the page is refraeshing before it is loded. This can be annoying even with fast connections on some websites. Jaws help suggests turning off automatic page refraesh on pages that frequently update the page. Go to settings center search for page refraesh and set it to never. you will have to manually update the page to see automatic changes in the content. But this will stop the issue you are haveing and will stop the PC cursor from jumping around on webpages that auto refraesh alot.

A while back, maybe two months, someone posted steps for setting the Windows 10 Calendar app to the best view for use with JAWS screen reader. It is Active View, or something similar.

 

Could someone repost this information? I was just setting up my computer, and somehow misplaced the information.

Subject: [BANA-Announce] Survey on Quotation Marks & Apostrophes in UEB
Reply-To: <Kim.Charlson@...>

The UEB Code Maintenance Committee is seeking opinions on a possible change to the representation of single quotation marks and apostrophes in UEB.

An explanatory document (in print and braille) and survey link are located on the ICEB home page at www.iceb.org.

Please spread the word of the survey through your local listservs, social media, newsletters, meetings and word-of-mouth.

It is important that we reach as many people as possible. Adults who read a lot of electronic braille, adults who read mainly hard copy braille, teachers of children learning braille and braille transcribers are all likely to hold different opinions and their voices need to be heard. Moreover, there is a big difference in the predominance of single quotation marks in print across countries.

The survey will be open for the month of June.

The Code Maintenance Committee (CMC) of the International Council on English Braille (ICEB) would like your input on possible changes to the braille representation of single quotation marks and the apostrophe to facilitate translation and reading on electronic braille devices. The explanatory document gives an explanation of the problem and the options under consideration. (Thanks to James Bowden, UK, and Leona Holloway, Australia, for their work on this.)

After reading the information, please complete the survey at

www.surveymonkey.com/r/UEB-apostrophe [1]

FW: Braille Authority of North America survey about proposed changes to UEB

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

Apologies if this is a repeat.  I received a notice that my message was not delivered so am trying again.

 

I was just made aware of this survey.  I know there are a lot of braille readers out there, so am passing this along.

Subject: [BANA-Announce] Survey on Quotation Marks & Apostrophes in UEB
Reply-To: <Kim.Charlson@...>

The UEB Code Maintenance Committee is seeking opinions on a possible change to the representation of single quotation marks and apostrophes in UEB.

An explanatory document (in print and braille) and survey link are located on the ICEB home page at www.iceb.org.

Please spread the word of the survey through your local listservs, social media, newsletters, meetings and word-of-mouth.

It is important that we reach as many people as possible. Adults who read a lot of electronic braille, adults who read mainly hard copy braille, teachers of children learning braille and braille transcribers are all likely to hold different opinions and their voices need to be heard. Moreover, there is a big difference in the predominance of single quotation marks in print across countries.

The survey will be open for the month of June.

The Code Maintenance Committee (CMC) of the International Council on English Braille (ICEB) would like your input on possible changes to the braille representation of single quotation marks and the apostrophe to facilitate translation and reading on electronic braille devices. The explanatory document gives an explanation of the problem and the options under consideration. (Thanks to James Bowden, UK, and Leona Holloway, Australia, for their work on this.)

After reading the information, please complete the survey at

www.surveymonkey.com/r/UEB-apostrophe [1]

to indicate your preference. The CMC will use the results of the survey to guide their decision on this issue.

The survey will be available until the end of June. If necessary, this time frame may be extended.

Please share this message with any colleagues who may be interested (with apologies for all the cross-postings I hope this will generate).

Hi,
I’m lookin into a new full-size computer keyboard for my Windows machine with bluetooth connectivity for my iPhone. I would like to know your thoughts on this Logitech K780 specific keyboard if you have it. Also, does this keyboard have an application key? I spoke with someone at Logitech earlier this week and they didn’t seem to know  what II was talking about. Thanks,

Subject: Unable to disable speaking of punctuation and symbols

I am new to V18 of Jaws. What I am trying to do is turn off speaking of all punctuation and symbols when browsing web sites. So far, I tried the following:

1. Disabled punctuation under Options, Voice Adjustments.

2. 2. In Settings Center, set numbers to be spoken as digits

3. 3. In Settings Center, made sure Announce Special Symbols was unchecked.

4. Made sure Default All Applications was selected prior to making these changes. However, when using Firefox, Jaws is still announcing Beginning and ending of articles and regions. Also, a colon is still announced when using Jaws-F12 to check the time. I’m confused.

Outlook Verbosity Question

Mark Arnold ABG
 

All,

 

I’ve been using JFW for almost 20 years and should know the answer to this question but I can’t seem to figure it out…

When typing a message in Outlook, how can I stop JAWS from announcing “superscript.”  For example, if I type something like June 11th, JAWS says, “ June superscript th.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Hi David & All,

 

Placemarker info below:

PlaceMarkers

A PlaceMarker is a bookmark that you can easily add to a Web page, HTML, PDF, or Word document, or form to mark a location. This is useful when you want to return to commonly used areas on a Web page, important sections or paragraphs of an HTML document, or specific parts, such as required fields, of a complicated form. PlaceMarkers can be defined as temporary or permanent and can be anchored to text, elements of the current Web page, or to a Web site's domain. Multiple PlaceMarkers can be added to HTML or PDF documents, while only one can be added to a Word document.

The following describes how to add, rename, or delete PlaceMarkers. If you are not familiar with PlaceMarkers and need more information, refer to Important PlaceMarker Concepts. For additional PlaceMarker operation, refer to Advanced PlaceMarker Usage. For general information about using PlaceMarkers in a Word document, refer to Marking and Returning to a PlaceMarker in Word.

Adding a Temporary PlaceMarker

To quickly add a temporary PlaceMarker, do the following:

  1. Open a Web page, other HTML document, or Word document.
  2. Move the virtual cursor to the location on the page where you want to put the PlaceMarker.
  3. Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K. A temporary PlaceMarker now appears on the page.

    You can always jump to it using any of the following Navigation Quick Keys: K, SHIFT+K, SHIFT+ number row keys 7 through 0, or CTRL+SHIFT+K. (The last keystroke opens the PlaceMarker List. Select Temporary from the list, and then choose the Move To button.)

Selecting Between the Temporary PlaceMarker and the Cursor Position

To select text between a temporary PlaceMarker and your current position in a Web page, HTML document, or Word document, do the following:

  1. Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+k to set a temporary PlaceMarker.
  2. Navigate to another location on the Web page or document, then press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M. All text between the temporary PlaceMarker and your current cursor position is selected and ready to be copied to the Clipboard.

This method is often easier than using the SHIFT Key in conjunction with the ARROW keys when attempting to select large blocks of text.

Adding Permanent PlaceMarkers to Web Pages or HTML Documents

To add a PlaceMarker, do the following:

  1. Open a Web page or other HTML document.
  2. Move the virtual cursor to the location on the page where you want to put the PlaceMarker.
  3. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K and then ENTER.
    The Add PlaceMarker dialog box opens with focus in the Name edit field. It contains text that appears at the cursor location. If you want to change the PlaceMarker name, type a new name in this field; otherwise, press TAB to move to the next control.
  4. The Define for All Pages on Current Domain check box is cleared by default, which allows the PlaceMarker to be anchored only to the current Web page or HTML document. If you want to use this PlaceMarker so that it is anchored to all pages within the current domain instead, press SPACEBAR to select the check box. Press TAB to move to the next control.
  5. The Anchor to Text check box is cleared by default. Select this check box if you want to link the PlaceMarker with specific text, such as a heading, that appears on the page. This can be useful on frequently updated Web pages where text and elements tend to drift from their original position. When selected, the next control, Anchor Text edit field, automatically populates using the original text in the Name edit field. This guarantees that the PlaceMarker will always be associated with this text on the Web page.
  6. Press TAB to navigate to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to close the dialog box and save the PlaceMarker.

Renaming PlaceMarkers

To change the name of a PlaceMarker, do the following:

  1. Open the page containing the PlaceMarker you want to rename.
  2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to display a list of PlaceMarkers on this page.
  3. Use the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW keys to select the PlaceMarker.
  4. Press SPACEBAR on the Change Name button or press ALT+C.
  5. Enter a new name for the PlaceMarker and then press SPACEBAR on the OK button.

Removing PlaceMarkers

To remove one or more PlaceMarkers, do the following:

  1. Open the page containing the PlaceMarker you want to delete.
  2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to display a list of all PlaceMarkers on the current page.
  3. Use the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW keys to select a PlaceMarker.
  4. Press SPACEBAR on the Remove button or press ALT+R to delete the PlaceMarker.

Tip: If you want to delete all PlaceMarkers for this page, press SPACEBAR on the Remove All button or press ALT+L.

Important PlaceMarker Concepts

The following sections, PlaceMarker Keystrokes, Temporary versus Permanent PlaceMarkers, and URL versus Domain PlaceMarkers, are key to understanding PlaceMarkers with JAWS.

PlaceMarker Keystrokes for Web Pages, HTML Documents, or Forms

  • Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K to insert a temporary PlaceMarker.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M to select text between the temporary PlaceMarker and your current cursor position.
  • Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to open the PlaceMarker List dialog box to add a new PlaceMarker, rename or change existing PlaceMarker parameters, jump to PlaceMarkers, or delete PlaceMarkers.  
  • Press K to jump to the next PlaceMarker.
  • Press SHIFT+K to jump to the previous PlaceMarker.
  • Press number row keys 7 through 0 to hear the content of PlaceMarkers 1 through 4.
  • Press SHIFT+ number row keys 7 through 0 to jump to PlaceMarkers 1 through 4.
  • Press ALT+WINDOWS Key+K to speak all of the PlaceMarkers on a Web page or in an HTML document.

PlaceMarker Keystrokes for Word Documents

  • Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K to set a PlaceMarker at the current cursor position. Only one PlaceMarker can be set per Word document.
  • Press ALT+WINDOWS Key+K to return to the marker in a Word document.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M to select text or items from the marker to the current cursor position.

Temporary Versus Permanent PlaceMarkers

You can add a temporary PlaceMarker anywhere on a Web page by pressing CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K. This lets you easily mark a spot that you can return to later by pressing K. Only one temporary PlaceMarker may be set per Web page. If you later decide to move the temporary PlaceMarker to a different place on the Web page, just move the Virtual Cursor to that new location and press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K again.

If you want to make the temporary PlaceMarker permanent, press CTRL+SHIFT+K to open the PlaceMarker List dialog box and add it to the list, which lets you keep and maintain multiple PlaceMarkers on the Web page, HTML document, or form. The last location where you set a temporary PlaceMarker is saved until you move it again, or remove the PlaceMarker from the PlaceMarkers List dialog. You can browse to other Web pages, exit JAWS, even restart your computer, and your temporary and permanent PlaceMarkers are preserved.

URL Versus Domain PlaceMarkers

JAWS lets you assign PlaceMarkers to either the current Web address (the URL displayed in the Address bar) or domain (the overall Web site name). The URL (uniform resource locator) is the Web address displayed in the address bar. You can only use PlaceMarkers assigned to the current URL when you are visiting that page.

Individual Web pages are contained within a domain. The domain's name is usually the first portion of the page's Web address and ends with .com, .net, .org, .gov, .edu, or similar suffix. When you add a domain PlaceMarker to a Web page, you can use that PlaceMarker on any page within the current domain. Since many sites use a consistent design for all of their pages, the placement of links, graphics, buttons, and form fields is often similar. If this is the case, you can use a single domain PlaceMarker to navigate many other pages on the site.

For example, if a Web site has a Search box located at the top of each page, you can put a domain PlaceMarker there named "Search." You can then use this PlaceMarker to move to the Search box on any page in the domain, regardless of the URL.

Advanced PlaceMarker Usage

The following describes other ways to customize and display PlaceMarkers.

Sharing PlaceMarkers

You can use Settings Packager to share your PlaceMarkers for a Web site with other JAWS users. Settings Packager is a program that lets you save speech and sound schemes, PlaceMarkers, and personalized Web settings in a compressed .zip file that you can send in an e-mail message, post on a Web site, or copy to removable storage media. You can also use Settings Packager to import the settings contained in these .zip files into JAWS. To start Settings Packager, press INSERT+F2, select "Settings Packager," and press ENTER. For more information on using this program, open the Settings Packager Help menu and choose Help Topics.

To share your PlaceMarkers with other JAWS users without using Settings Packager:

  1. Open your JAWS user settings folder from the Start Menu, All Programs, JAWS X (where X is the JAWS version number), Explore JAWS, Explore My Settings.
  2. Move to the PlaceMarkers folder and press ENTER.
  3. PlaceMarker information is stored in .PMI files. Locate the .PMI file with the same name as the page containing the PlaceMarkers you want to share.
  4. Copy this file and distribute it to other users. These users then need to copy the .PMI file on their PlaceMarkers folder by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, JAWS X (where X is the JAWS version number), Explore JAWS, Explore My Settings and open the PlaceMarkers folder. The users can now navigate that HTML page with your PlaceMarkers.

Custom Page Summary

When you open an HTML page, the Custom Page Summary feature automatically lists each PlaceMarker on the page and its associated text. This lets you quickly review the text located near your PlaceMarkers so you can hear any changes or updates to those areas of the page. To enable or disable this feature, do the following:

  1. Open Settings Center (INSERT+F2) or Quick Settings (INSERT+V).
  2. In the Search edit box, type "PlaceMarker" without the quotes.
  3. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Custom PlaceMarker Page Summary in the filtered results of the tree view. (Note that for Web browsers, this option appears in both the Virtual Cursor Options group and the Personalized Web Settings group.)
  4. Press SPACEBAR to toggle through the following settings.

·         Select "Speak PlaceMarkers on Page Load" to have JAWS read the name of each PlaceMarker on the current page as well as the text that appears near the PlaceMarker's location.

·         Select "List PlaceMarkers in Results Viewer on Page Load" to have JAWS display the PlaceMarker information for the page in the Results Viewer. The Results Viewer provides a link with the name of the PlaceMarker and the text that appears near the PlaceMarker's location on the page. You can use the ARROW keys to move to a link and then press ENTER to move to that PlaceMarker.

·         Select "Do Nothing" to have JAWS provide a custom page summary.

You could use your place marker keystrokes. I would hope youd not forgotten
about these, but I use them many times in life; love em! Anyway, go to where
you'd like to start your copy, press windows CTRL and k. this'll place a
temporary placemarker there. Just arrow down your text until you want to
stop copying. If you have a period or something else at the end of this, I'd
right arrow past it-place markers pick this up too. Press your layered
command of insert space and them m. "selecting from marked place to current
position"
should be heard with       JAWS. Just press CTRL c to copy
it, and to make sure, you can press insert windows and x for confirmation
the text is on the clipboard. Go into your word document and just paste with
CTRL v. I know, it's a lot.
However, doing it is much faster than writing it out ha ha!
Need anymore help, please feel free to e-mail me at apiccinino@...

However, you could also send to the list. Please make sure you're using
JAWS; commands I gave work here but not sure for NVDA. Never used that

I go to a web page that has a recipe I wish to copy.  I go

It seems that
I am always missing the last few lines I am trying to copy.
Any help

Re: Document settings for reading in IE

I changed the label for windows to a blank edit box and now, if I press the key, it dows not speak.  If I press it with other keys, it still speaks the label of the other key, though.  For example, windows key plus r now becomes r and windows key e becomes e, etc. 

When I tried clicking on mute, I received an error message stating that this key was used with other commands and couldn't be muted, or somethig to that affect.

Re: Document settings for reading in IE

I wonder if you could go into the JAWS settings center with insert and 6—that’s 6 on your number row—type in label, and after you’ve found your result of “manage key labels …” change how the windows key is spoken/not? I would hope this’d help you, but check back with the group if it doesn’t, okay.

Hi,

I've used Jaws before, and never had this problem.

If I press "windows r, which brings up the run dialog, Jaws says, "Windows r, run dialog, please enter a filename or internet resource, and Windows will open it for you."

I'd like it to say all that, excluding the keys I'm pressing.

What is your speech verbosity set too?Beginner says all kinds of stuff, intermediate cuts down on that and expert says very little...

This might not be what you’re looking for, but when on any web site in IE, you can press insert v for your quick settings. Go to your document settings and under general, you’ll find some reading settings. Make sure the checkbox for “document automatically reads” is unchecked and press the okay/execute button.

Hope this helps,

The problem I am having with extra verbiage is when I first load a web page. I first here the title of the web page as it is loading. Then I hear it probably 3 times before the page summary is spoken and one more time after that. I have a satellite connection, so my pages start loading fairly slowly. Is there any way to reduce this annoying chatter. If I stop speech, then the page doesn't automatically read.


Best Regards From Ohio,

Vic

Jessica, press insert+j to gain focus to the JAWS window. now press the alt key to get the menubar. the option menu should be announced, if so press enter or down arrow to open it. the first option should be basics... press enter to open it. the first setting should be Tutor Messages. press the down or up arrow key to choose Turn off Menu and Control Help radio button checked, and press enter to save and close the basics dialog.
vwa la.

                Hi,
I’m using JAWS 18, with Windows 10, 1607.

I’m getting a lot of extraneous info from JAWS.
When I go to my desktop, for example, I hear, “Windows D desktop.”

Can I stop JAWS from saying this extra stuff?
Thanks,
Jessica
