I have found that the enter key also works when dealing with combo boxes.

 

So, are the space bar and enter key equivalent, in terms of fumction in this case?

 

Just curious.

Hello List,

I noticed that my student is having trouble operating spinboxes when she encounters them on various websites she's expected to navigate.  She's using JAWS16,  Mozilla Firefox,  Win7 laptop without numpad.  What does JAWS tell you when you're on the tiny,  tiny triangle which would allow the up and down arrows to scroll through the options?  What should she be LISTENING for to know she's on the right spot?  Thanks,  as always - this list is lifesaver to us.  -Holly

Hi,

 

If it is a combo box that you are talking about, it is always advised to use alt and downarrow to open it rather than just downarrow.

 

 

 

Take care,

Re: How do you move a "slider" for elapsed time for a YouTube video?

Subject: Re: How do you move a "slider" for elapsed time for a YouTube video?

 

Richard,

 

Here are the detailed instructions and key strokes for the YouTube scripts.

 

Using YouTube With JAWS and the Scripts

 

The scripts provide the following commands:

Ctrl+Shift+S Skip Ad. If a video ad is playing and a Skip button is present, this command will click it to make YouTube start playing the actual video requested.

Ctrl+Shift+Space Press the Play/Pause button if present. This works in both virtual cursor mode and forms mode.

Ctrl+Shift+T Say Time. This command will speak the current time position in the playing video as well as the video's length. If a video ad is playing, the times will relate to the ad rather than to the requested video. Note: The current time position is not always kept up to date by YouTube itself but will be updated if the video is paused and restarted or the play position is changed by the user.

Typing Ctrl+Shift+Space twice will force such an update.

Ctrl+Shift+N and Ctrl+Shift+P Move to the next or previous search results page or video. This works in search results, playlists, and wherever a Next and Previous button can be found.

Ctrl+Shift+V Move focus to the volume slider for the currently playing video. This also switches JAWS into forms mode and causes a number of native YouTube keystrokes to become usable.

The following YouTube-native keystrokes work as indicated when JAWS is in forms mode or if the keystrokes are passed through JAWS directly to YouTube, such as with the JAWS "pass next key through" command, Ins+3. As noted in the below list, some YouTube keystrokes require focus to be on the video's volume slider. This list applies at least to the HTML 5 video player and possibly also to the Flash player.

Space (slider focus required) or K Pause, resume, or play the current video. j or l Rewind or fast-forward the video by a few seconds. Digits 1 through 9 and 0 (slider focus required) Jump to a percentage through the video. 0 jumps to the beginning, 1 to 10% through, 2 to 20% through, etc., and 9 to 90% through. , (comma) or . (period) Slow down or speed up the video without changing its pitch. This amounts to simple compression or expansion of the audio and video. Slowing down far enough may stop playback. Up or Down arrows (slider focus required) Turn up or down the volume of the video by increments of 5%. Right and Left arrows, respectively, perform the same actions and also require focus to be on the volume slider. The volume usually defaults to 100%. M Mute or unmute the sound of the video. Beware that the occasional video defaults to muted on starting, though this seems rare. Home (slider focus required) Mute the audio. This is not a toggle like m. End (slider focus required) Unmute the audio and move the volume to 100%. This is not a toggle like m. F Toggle between full screen and normal video size. / (slash) Move focus to the YouTube search box. ' (apostrophe) Pop open and move focus to the Find bar for about four seconds.

How do you use the "youtube shortcuts" mentioned below?  Is it like if you are playing a video you would press, for example, Alt+4" to go to 40% of the way into the video?  That is, are these "shortcuts" initiated with the "Alt" key?

arrows to go fordward o backward, and up or down the volume.

"m" to mute, {k" to pause, and 1 to 9 to go to 10 to 90% of video time. 0 to go to begining.

 

Note. use the pass throu function in jaws or nvda before.

Re: Reading smile emoticons

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Not sure what exactly you are looking for. Leasey Advanced is a set of Jaws scripts and emoticons is just one feature they offer. I suggest you listen to the audio demo and, if you really want to get into the details, you could read the Leasey Documentation, there is a link for it on the main Leasey web page and I have put it below:

http://www.hartgen.org/leaseydocumentation

If you want to find the section about emoticons, use Jaws Key+Shift+F for the Jaws Find feature and search for "Using the Emoticons List" or probably just "emoticons list" will do.

Re: any word on when this comes out?

Maria Kristic
 

The FSCast notification setting is still there; it may have gotten disabled by default if, for instance, you are running a non-English version of JAWS. To Turn it on, open Settings Center (by pressing JAWSKey+6 on the numbers row, for instance), press CTRL+SHIFT+D to open the Default file, and then search the Settings Center for FSCast. It is a check box which should be found if you do that search.

 

Regarding ElBraille, there will be an interview on it on a future Blind Bargains podcast—I believe it will actually be on next week’s podcast (www.blindbargains.com).

 

Ms. Adi Kushnir posted a message in January on this list as well (pasted below); I would suggest perhaps writing to her directly to ask if you would like the Quick Start Guide referenced below, as the attachment could not come through on the list…

An external sound card such as a USB soundcard stick that you plug your

drivers in general and then look up the audio drivers on your laptop and
then google them to see if anyone else may not be satisfied with them and go

I did not have any audio music to test with, but I did try out a podcast and
a youtube music performance. There was a difference in the quality for both
of those, but it was pretty minor compared to my perception of the JAWS
change.

Audio drivers? What do I need to know to asses my audio driver situation?
This is a low end laptop, but I am willing to invest in some upgrades to
make my sound experience better. The headphone situation is really a problem
when I am on the phone and can really not just use the external speakers. I
understand that some headphones now come with there own sound card. Is that
something I should consider?

I am trying one more. If this one lags, then I have a wired one picked out. The problem is, I’m also trying to get a current dock replaced due to connectivity issues. So I do want something smallish for the other room. If this speaker works, I may put it in there and move the dock into the living room since I won’t need it as a dock anymore. My dad stopped by yesterday. He could even tell of the lag when I showed him this little speaker which says a lot. He’s not a music crazed person like I am.

I also have a Marshal Kilburn, same company that makes Marshall guitar amps, 40 watt Bluetooth speaker that kicks real ass and a half! It also looks so much like a real vintage Marshall guitar amp. It’s a bit too heavy to put in my backpack, but I can and often do. It doesn’t have, I think its called, NFC technology. So you can’t make or take phone calls through it. But you’d have your IPhone with you anyway, so I work with that.

My new  Marshall Kilburn puts out 40 wats and in my opinion, blows away my old Bose Sound Link Mini II  in sound quality and of course volume. As the Bose puts out 20 watts, and the Marshall 40 wats.

 

The bose goes for around $180.00 or less these days, when I bought it I paid $200.00. The Marshall cost me a whopping $330.00. But it looks like a small vintage style Marshall guitar amp from the Jimi Hendricks days and totally rocks. It all comes down to the buyers personal choice in how it sounds and cost.

 

BTW: my trusty Bose Sound Link Mini II suffered a wallet draining death at sea. Note: Never take your listening devices out on an offshore fishing trip. Lesson learned, oh so well!

 

But Bluetooth is a love hate thing for me. Nothing beats a strong signal that hard wiring will give you. There ain’t no lag whatsoever. But you are tethered and have to deal with wires laying around. With Bluetooth no wires obviously, but the possible lag issue might suck. I don’t know why some gbluetooth speakers have bad lag, and some don’t?

 

 

Well that’s my story on Bluetooth speakers, and I’m a stickin to it! LOL!

Sounds nice! I’ve not seen that one. My mom is thinking of buying this one off me. She likes it. I compared it with my current speakers last night. I thought they sounded similar, but my older model blows this little thing out of the water.

It’s the AOMAIS Sport II Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers 4.0 with Waterproof IPX7,20W Bass Sound,Stereo Pairing,Durable Design for iPhone /iPod/iPad/Phones/Tablet/Echo.

I paid $49.00 at Amazon.

I do like it because it’s pretty much indestructible. Great water proofing; IPX 7. Plus it’s 20 watts and sounds good too. But with its latency issue, I only use it to listen to music. I don’t use it with my laptop when I have a lot of emails and/or word docs to type out.

It’s a very good deal to listen to music and not worry about inadvertently damaging it. They have a video in which a guy in a jeep drives up on it and parks, with the music still playing. Then they submerge it in about 9 feet? Of water and it’s still playing. Tough indeed.

I don’t get any latency when using my aftershocks trecks titanium headphones with my laptop. But I have one Bluetooth speaker that does have bad latency. I can’t use this speaker while I’m typing out something. It’s that bad. Very annoying indeed!

I use a set of aftershock Bluetooth headphones with my computer and it makes a difference for me. I have so many things plugged into my lap top with cords that it is so much easier not to have one connected to my headset.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Latency! Which means, for those of you keeping score at home, a low latency number means less lag between the device pushing out the Bluetooth signal, and the speaker or whatever receiving and the lag that occurs.

Your laptop with JAWS probably has an older Bluetooth version with a not too good latency.

Where the IPhone is probably the latest version of Bluetooth with better latency?

I think the latest version of Bluetooth is 4.0?

Remember: I am not a technical guru, nor do I play one on TV. But I think that’s what you got going on.

 

I have this same issue on some of my older devices, and it’s a real PITA when typing with JAWS! I wish I’d a learned touch typing with out the Key Echo on!

Hi there. My name is Alyssa. I’ve been a JAWS user for almost 20 years. Phew. The program has surely come a long way since I first started.

 

Anyway, enough about that. I purchased a Bluetooth speaker to use with one of my computers. When connected, JAWS’ audio is seriously delayed to the point it sounds like there is a malfunction with the unit. I then tried hard-wiring it. Sure, that helped a little but not as much as I would like. When I use this same speaker with my iPhone and Voiceover, I have no issues at all.

 

Have any of you ever experienced this with a Bluetooth product? If so, did you find a way to fix it?

 

I have a headset that JAWS works just fine with, so I’m not sure what the problem is here. I was considering just using this speaker for my phone and laptop when it returns from being repaired, but if this is going to be an ongoing issue, then I think I may return it.

 

Thanks for any help.

Re: Help changing voice when using headphones

Jennifer Jackson <jennsjackson@...>
 

Thanks for helping me work through this problem. I did try googling it first, and have been looking up definitions of various tech terms to be sure I am understanding everything.


I did not have any audio music to test with, but I did try out a podcast and a youtube music performance. There was a difference in the quality for both of those, but it was pretty minor compared to my perception of the JAWS change.

Audio drivers? What do I need to know to asses my audio driver situation? This is a low end laptop, but I am willing to invest in some upgrades to make my sound experience better. The headphone situation is really a problem when I am on the phone and can really not just use the external speakers. I understand that some headphones now come with there own sound card. Is that something I should consider?

Good Morning,

I am using JFW 18 on a laptop with Windows 10. I have the voice settings
adjusted to something I like pretty well when using the laptop speakers.
When I plug in headphones though, the quality drops significantly. The
headphones sound fine on other devices so I am hoping this is something
fixable. Suggestions?

Outlook 2010 conversation view speaking "conversation"

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi All: I set up conversation view after I did some registry cleanup of my system. After the cleanup, Jaws kept saying “conversation” and then the subject. I want to hear the sender, then the subject. The way I used to have it was that, to expand the conversation, I hit the right arrow. I never needed to listen to “conversation”. I also like to see the oldest message first in a conversation. It just feels more logical to me. What am I missing?

Re: Intro and Question about Delayed Audio

I also have a Marshal Kilburn, same company that makes Marshall guitar amps, 40 watt Bluetooth speaker that kicks real ass and a half! It also looks so much like a real vintage Marshall guitar amp. It’s a bit too heavy to put in my backpack, but I can and often do. It doesn’t have, I think its called, NFC technology. So you can’t make or take phone calls through it. But you’d have your IPhone with you anyway, so I work with that.

My new  Marshall Kilburn puts out 40 wats and in my opinion, blows away my old Bose Sound Link Mini II  in sound quality and of course volume. As the Bose puts out 20 watts, and the Marshall 40 wats.

 

The bose goes for around $180.00 or less these days, when I bought it I paid $200.00. The Marshall cost me a whopping $330.00. But it looks like a small vintage style Marshall guitar amp from the Jimi Hendricks days and totally rocks. It all comes down to the buyers personal choice in how it sounds and cost.

 

BTW: my trusty Bose Sound Link Mini II suffered a wallet draining death at sea. Note: Never take your listening devices out on an offshore fishing trip. Lesson learned, oh so well!

any word on when this comes out?

ken lawrence
 

Hi list members haven’t been viewing the digests in a while so hope I’m not asking a question that has already been answered.  Last year when jaws was giving you the one time prompt to listen to the new FScast, they had an item on a new notetaker called the elbraille.  this was supposed to be a windows 10 based jaws based notetaker that also would have the focus 14 braille display in it.  supposedly this gadget is smaller than the pac mate was and even had a self voicing recovery menue in it.  does anyone on list know when it is coming out?  also on a related note why was the one time prompt to listen to that monthly podcast discontinued.  did jaws users not like that feature?  I thought it was kind’a handy.
