Hi,

Have you tried in incognito mode - all addons and extras disabled?
Everything works well here.

Is anyone using one of the other Chromium based browsers like Brave or Vivaldi, and is it happening to them? At this point I'm thinking that it's something that the Chromium engine is doing, since it seems to be isolated to just them.

I'm having problems in firefox and form fields with information not
reading correctly with jaws. When arrowing right over the first character
that I entered into the form field the character does not read correctly.
If I arrow left over the character it will read correctly. The form field
also places a ghosted character at the end that echo's the first
character in the field even though the character is not at the end of the
field.

Any Ideas on how to fix?

Keyboard manager is insert 8 on the number row, but I just went into it, and insert is there, but when I try to add a keystroke, my insert isn't seen as a keystroke.

You would find insert by pressing I and down arrowing to insert and tap the applications key, and add keystroke.

Maybe you can add the keystroke you said that key is doing, what was it?

alt windows + Q?

And maybe then that insert key will do the insert action.

If it has always done this, or if it isn't stuck keys as Bill suggested, you might try using Jaws keyboard manager to assign it, to work as the insert key.

Hi everyone!

I think I saw someone else ask this but didn't see an answer. Does
anyone know of an easy to use and accessible file renaming utility?
There was one a while back that I looked at that I think was called
"File Renamer" but its main window or dialog had a crap load of fields,
some of which weren't very well labeled that tried to throw the kitchen
sink at you. That was way to much!

Hi Loy,

It is, because laptop mode, aside from all the other benefits, allows you to use the right hand home keys and surrounding keys, to act as the number pad when the caps lock is down.

I changed my keyboard layout to laptop. Caps lock J will not open the JAWS menu, but other wise works as the insert key does. Is this normal? JAWS runs from sys tray.

Hi, Gene. The only thing I can think of that might help after you press the button to translate, is to press JAWS key plus ESCAPE to refresh the screen, so JAWS doesn't think you're still on the previous, untranslated page.

Hi everyone!

I am trying to get to this web site, when I get there it is in Italian.
Edge offers to translate it to English And I tell it to do the
translation, but when it finishes the site is still in Italian! Is the
translation not working or am I missing something that I have to do with
JAWS before I can see the translated page?

Thanks!
Gene...
