Hi Ann

Some links for keyboard commands if you haven't come across them before. Note that I've already raised with Cisco that there are some options which are missing i.e. raise your hand, mute/unute video. Hope this helps.

moderated Re: JAWS Reading Completed Tasks in Microsoft Outlook

Van Lant, Robin
 

Hello,

I assume there is an icon, much like the read and unread flag for messages, but JAWS isn’t reading it. I just created a test task and marred it complete, but JAWS doesn’t distinguish that when arrowing up and down in the inbox. I Have a number of taskss in my list that are overdue and JAWS will announce those as having a “red flag”, so this might e an oversight in the JAWS or Microsoft coding.  You might call Microsoft Accessibility to check.  I’m in Outlook 2016.  Having said this, I prefer to delete tasks once complete rather than marking them complete, because I don’t want them cluttering up my list.  Do note that you can delete a task you created as a task, but if you have an item in that list that is actually a follow-up flag on an email or calendar entry, you will want to select the “remove” option, not the “deleted” option.  This takes it out of your task list, but leaves the original email or calendar entry in it’s folder.  My method for this is to hit the application key when focus is on the item I want in the task list.

I know how to set a task and then get into the To Do bar and view all active tasks by just arrowing up and down.  But after you mark a task as being completed then, for some reason, you want to view the task again or check and see if a task has indeed been completed, how do you do that?  I am using JAWS 2020 and Windows 2010 and Outlook 2010.

As has already been noted by Joseph Lee, this set of Reset options was introduced with Windows 10 Version 2004.  If you do not have Windows 10 Version 2004 already, they are not going to be presented.

And I have no idea why you'd even bother booting into talking Windows PE if you have a sighted assistant to do a one-time boot order reset to cause the machine to boot from Windows 10 install media.  Once the Windows 10 installer fires up you can turn on Narrator and go the rest of the way straight from the install media.  I've supplied these instructions many times, Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Create Bootable Win10 Install Media on a USB Thumb Drive

 

, and the Windows 10 installer will either install over the current disk setup or you can escape to command prompt and nuke the drive yourself, because Narrator should be up by then if you invoke it.  If the reinstall is for yourself, the whole set of steps escaping to Command Prompt are very often unnecessary.

Hi,

In order to use online method, you must install May 2020 Update (Version 2004). Apart from downloading the installer image for the Windows 10 version you have, it is identical to local install option. This means this option won’t solve the intended use case – you cannot really repartition the drive or do a complete clean install via external media; to do that, you still need to boot to the installation media.

Cheers,

Joseph

The problem is, the computer I am trying to reset does not boot either from the CD/DVD or USB, so, I need someone with sight to go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence, then, I can use boot media to run a Talking windows Pre-windows Environment to clear the current partition and then install a new installation of Windows 10.

That has nothing to do with the behavior of the Reset function (Settings, Update & Security, Recovery Pane, Reset this PC section, Get Started button).  It's a part of Windows 10, whether that's what came with the computer or not.

Depending on which version of Windows 10 you're running there can be certain differences below the level that the user deals with, but that's not relevant to it being accessible with Narrator once Reset is far enough along (which isn't far) to allow Narrator to be invoked.

moderated Re: Why Jaws demo mode?

Patrick Murphy <murphy.patrick42@...>
 

Hi,

 

I am not sure if this would help, but after I installed jaws 2020, I got a 90 day local key.

Once I installed it, jaws kept starting up, but there was no jaws window.

The only way to get the jaws window back was to stop and then restart jaws 2020.

By various methods of installing/uninstalling it and 2018, I am fairly sure, that all of these type of problems are to do with their “grace period” authorization that was introduced in 2019.

Basically, it allows jaws to start while it is checking your authorization, or whether it should be running in demo mode.

In other words, and in my opinion, jaws is trying to have its cake and eat it at the same time.

As a programmer, in such things, it should be done one thing at a time, even if there is a small delay in jaws starting.

That way, it would be sure of its authorization state before it actually starts.

I would say, that this is your problem. Jaws cannot decide whether you are authorized or not.

In my experience, don’t bother trying to find a fix for this. There is none!!!

The difference between your good self and me, is that I am using windows 10 home edition.

I also suspect, that the startup of jaws, and how reliable it is, depends on the machine, e.g. speed of processor, solid state drive, available memmory etc.

 

Hope this points you in some direction.

moderated Mapping braille display keys

ann
 

Hi folks,


Would it involve fancy scripting or is  there anyway of mapping keys on a braille display to certain functions, like the F1 through F12 keys, setting keystrokes for an Alt_F4 function, ETC? I just learned that Orbit has not even developed these commands for Jaws and there display, though they did put the commands in the User guide. They've promised an updated user guide, but no word whether they will implement the F1 through F12 key commands yet. In fact, there are a lot of keys on the Orbit that don't seem to be mapped to any functions in Remote mode at all.


Thanks for any advice,

~Ann

Hi Michelle,
Congrats on the ElBraille. You will like it! I could not find subscription
info, so I was wondering if I could forward your message to the ElBraille
List? Where do you reside? I'd be happy to assist where I can. The list is a
great place for questions and answers.
Best,

Les

Michelle Stevens here,

Can anyone tell me where I can get aemail list for elbraille users. I have a
brand new elbraille for my work. Am quite lost at the moment.

Is there anyone who would be prepared to help me toget started.

I have read the getting started guide, have installed Jaws pro 2020 and
connected to my wifi. Am trying to remember the new shortcut keys.

Much appreciated.

Michelle

Whilst setting a temporary placemarker is certainly an option I personally find it much easier to simply press shift enter on a link on a  web page. This has the affect of forcing your  browser to open a link in a new window. Instead of hitting the alt left arrow to go back you simply use control w to close the page to return to your original page where hopefully your original placement should be undisturbed. At least that has always worked for me.

I have been frustrated by this, too, especially if I’m trying to capture bits of information from  the site.  Like another suggested, I have started using setting a temporary placemarker with Control Windows K.  Then, when you come back to the webpage, hit the K key and you’ll jump to the placemarker.

Hello everyone,

 

How do I stop the cursor on a web page from jumping back to the top of the page when I’ve left the page and returned to it, only to find myself at the top and having to find my place again?

 

Many thanks.

 

Marilyn
