Hi, Mike. The Change button is in the Properties of the pdf file, not in Adobe reader.

 

1. Find a pdf file.

2. Press ALT plus ENTER for Properties.

3. SHIFT plus TAB to find the Change button.

4. Press ENTER on the Change button.

5. Choose Adobe Reader from the choices of what app will open the pdf.

6. TAB to Apply, and press ENTER.

7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

 

Now any pdf should open in Adobe reader.

Hi,

  Yes, this is a new issue for 2021.  JAWS just quits.  In my case it occurs with Office and a Bible software program.  More interesting is that JAWS does not auto restart.  I have to use the hot keys to get speech again.

 

I am sure the issue is also frustrating for JAWS developers as there are so many configurations and software interactions that it is impossible to prevent all failures.  Yet I hope that future versions will address crashes that occur with mainstream, standard, programs.

Jaws has a talking installer which is what kicks in if you uninstall it. I Have never found a problem with uninstalling Jaws while Jaws was running, but of course turning it off and starting Narrator is a very valid way to also do this.

Hello,

I sent an email and got the reply “call 727-803-8600 as there are to many variables. I sent back an email saying I already talk to live support and they told me to email support. Okay now what? Is it possible to uninstall Jaws while it is running and then reinstall it? Anything else I might want to try? Sounds like tech support doesn’t want to do anything.

moderated Re: temporarily changing punctuation

Udo Egner-Walter
 

Hi Ann,

If I realize a hot key will not work in an application but in others I do the following:

1. Press JAWS+F2 and select Keyboard Manager and open it with enter key
2. If Keyboard Manager is open press Control+Shift+D to open the default settings
3. Press tab key to go into the list of scripts
4. Press Control+F to search for a hot key. A dialog will open in which you can press the hot key that is to be searched (here it is insert + shift + 2)
5. Press enter key to start the search
6. If the key is found JAWS will place itself on the script which is assigned to this key
7. Open context menu by pressing context menu key or shift+F10
8.. In the context menu you can select the command to add a new hot key. If the hot key is assigned to another script JAWS will tell you. I used Alt+Shift+2 in my test.

If this doesn't work for you let me know and I try to describe to manually change the JAWS key bindings file in your setting folder.

Good luck
Udo

In a recent JAWS update, I read that insert+shift+2 will temporarily change punctuation through all, some, most, and none. When I use the keystroke in most programs, it works just fine. However, in Excel when I want to temporarily hear *all punctuation, pressing insert+shift+2 sets monitor cell 2. Is there a quick easy way to temporarily change punctuation in Excel?

There are not any apps for the iPhone that I would trust to give anything close to accurate color readings.
The camera is not designed for that, and the lighting can change what it says about a color quite a bit.

You either need a stand-alone piece of equipment like the Colorino, or if the Rainbow III comes out this year; or to get sighted assistance.
Aira or Be My Eyes could help as they could tell you if you need to move into better lighting, etc.

Michael,

         As Bill White has mentioned, you really need to first determine where the move to Junk is being done, and resolve the issue there.  If your email provider is Comcast, then if you check your webmail you should see the same messages in Junk as you see in the email client, then it's most probable that Comcast is doing that assignment.  And if that's the case I'd whitelist anything coming from groups.io using whatever mechanism they use.

          The fact that you say Junk makes me think you're using Thunderbird, and if so you can either train its Junk filtering or put in a whitelist item for anything originating from groups.io and never sending that to junk.

I am sorry that I did not make my position clear. I have used face ID in the past for my customers and have found the experience variable. The reason you might find it reliable most of the time is the fact that you are using a Microsoft product. I do use Fusion personally and on my ThinkPad Yoga it was hit or miss. The finger print reader was more reliable but fails at times as well. As someone said in this thread if face id or the finger print reader does not work you can always use the Pin Code. It is important to remember that opinions  on this list are the experience of the user and not to be taken as gospel . Thank you for making me make my answer more clear.

Please don’t take offense. since you don’t use face ID, you should not give advice such as this. I use it on my Surface Pro7 and it is almost 100% accurate. In the case that it might not work the first time, you set up a pin number to enter much like you would use a passcode on an IPhone.

Actually, I find it much better than face ID on the phone. And it works very well in low light.

Congratulations on the new laptop. I do not know about face ID and the response of Jaws to it.  I would not use it since it would possibly be less reliable depending on the lighting conditions and other factors.

Subject: using a pc with a fingerprint/faceID reader?

 

Good morning,

 

I just purchased a new laptop.

 

It’s a Lenovo IdeaPad & has both touch& face ID.

 

When I got to the point during setup, where it asked me to scan my finger, for touch ID, narrator didn’t say anything, so I needed sighted assistance.

Butt when its ready for me to login, Jaws says, “scan your finger on the fingerprint reader.”

 

Would it do the same with face ID?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica
