This has been a problem for me for years with a Titanium SoundBlaster card, though it doesn’t cut off words, it just causes occasional crackling or distortion.  I have been using the  Silenzio app  for some time to stop this problem. Glad to see it incorporated in JAWS.

moderated Re: Desktop short cut hot keys

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

Yes Mike, that is what I had to do.

It works great and since I don’t use more than 10 shortcuts really it is enough.

Anything else I can just run from the search box after tapping the windows key.  Or, of course, go to the desktop and use first letter navigation.

Its just bloody strange that Freedom Scientific nor Microsoft have an explanation for why on some systems the standard desktop shortcuts don’t work and yet on other, seemingly very similar setups they do.

Got to love those gremlins.

Pinning the shortcut icons to the task bar never fails for me, but the drawback is that you're limited to how many you can pin to the taskbar.  These shortcuts can be accessed from anywhere on the computer.

Once you’ve created a desktop shortcut to a specific version of JAWS, try renaming it. for example, I’ve renamed JAWS 2020 as “JAWS 2020 shortcut.” This method was recommended by an FS tech support guy, and it has worked for me for several versions. Don’t ask me why.

To rename a file, place focus on the filename, then press F2 to bring up an edit field. Make the changes, then press enter.

Apparently, some systems, mine included, and I'm running Windows 10 Home 64 bit; Jaws 2020 blocks the desktop hotkeys.

I worked with Eric Damery last fall after Jaws 2020 came out.

They thought the November or maybe the December update had fixed it, but they stopped working.

They work with other screen readers.

 

Later,

I am using JAWS 2020 with Windows 7 and have several hot keys set up to quickly open applications like JAWS, but they have stopped working.  I noticed this when I had shut down JAWS and tried to restart it with Alt + CTRL + J and nothing happened.  I later discovered that none of my hot key short cuts were working.  What would cause them to stop working?

Yes, what is happening is to save power some sound card drivers are putting the card into a sleep or shutdown mode and so when Jaws goes to send info to the sound card it has to wake up.  This isn’t happening to everyone.  The solution was a small program was written that continually sends something to the card to keep it active. And that way it didn’t have to wake up.

 

In the June release of Jaws they are going to build this feature of keeping the card awake as an option that a person can turn on if they are experiencing the issue.

Frankly, I haven't noticed any difference in the versions.  I assume it mainly shows up in the recovery environment, or maybe in the Linux versions.  The windows component seems to work the same either way, and since I have multiple computers, I've been able to fix all my problems without having to use the recovery environment with speech.

1. Ppress, Jaws key + J, to open the Jaws context menu.
2. Press enter on, Options, arrow down to Voices submenu, press enter, and press enter on Voice Adjustment...
3. A. Now tab, 4 times to Voice Adjust All Contexts 1 of 5, and the setting you want is in here.
B. Tab 4 more times to, Voice upper case pitch change, and it's probably set on, 20.
C. Press your backspace key a couple of times to remove, 20, and type the number you want.  Note;  If you want a higher pitch type in a higher number than
20, and if you want a lower pitch type in a lower number.  You'll probably want to experiment with this.  I have mine set at, 27.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Hello,

 

I’m using MS Word, and I am trying to figure out if the Jaws sound schemes can be customized so that an entire word with the initial letter capitalized can be identified by pitch change or other sound? I know that the sound schemes can help you identify the first letter when a word is capitalized but when I’m proofreading documents as an attorney using “say all” I need to be able to identify if words in a sentence are capitalized more efficiently.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pinning the shortcut icons to the task bar never fails for me, but the drawback is that you're limited to how many you can pin to the taskbar.  These shortcuts can be accessed from anywhere on the computer.

Once you’ve created a desktop shortcut to a specific version of JAWS, try renaming it. for example, I’ve renamed JAWS 2020 as “JAWS 2020 shortcut.” This method was recommended by an FS tech support guy, and it has worked for me for several versions. Don’t ask me why.

To rename a file, place focus on the filename, then press F2 to bring up an edit field. Make the changes, then press enter.

Apparently, some systems, mine included, and I'm running Windows 10 Home 64 bit; Jaws 2020 blocks the desktop hotkeys.

I worked with Eric Damery last fall after Jaws 2020 came out.

They thought the November or maybe the December update had fixed it, but they stopped working.

They work with other screen readers.

Morning Alison,
 
Try the following.  The steps below are for the Eloquence voice profile
1. Ppress, Jaws key + J, to open the Jaws context menu.
2. Press enter on, Options, arrow down to Voices submenu, press enter, and press enter on Voice Adjustment...
3. A. Now tab, 4 times to Voice Adjust All Contexts 1 of 5, and the setting you want is in here.
B. Tab 4 more times to, Voice upper case pitch change, and it's probably set on, 20.
C. Press your backspace key a couple of times to remove, 20, and type the number you want.  Note;  If you want a higher pitch type in a higher number than
20, and if you want a lower pitch type in a lower number.  You'll probably want to experiment with this.  I have mine set at, 27.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Is there a way of increasingly the degree of pitch change when Jaws is indicating a capital letter, as sometimes it isn’t very clear, and although your suggestion, Mike, would overcome this, I’d rather be notified by pitch change than the programme forever saying “cap”.

Hi Richard,

 

Try the following to see if this setting change will help you with what you're trying to do:

 

1. While in Word press, Insert + 6, on the number row to open, Word Settings Center.

 

2. Down arrow to, Say all closed, and right arrow to open.

 

3. Down arrow to, Indicate Caps during Say All not checked, and press the spacebar to check this option.
note:  this option explained;  Select this check box to have JAWS announce capitalization when reading with Say All. JAWS announces "cap" for single capital letters, and "all cap" for capitalized words. This check box is cleared by default.

 

4. Tab to, Apply , press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay , and press enter to save / close.


Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Subject: Identifying Capitalized Words in MS Word

 

Hello,

 

I’m using MS Word, and I am trying to figure out if the Jaws sound schemes can be customized so that an entire word with the initial letter capitalized can be identified by pitch change or other sound? I know that the sound schemes can help you identify the first letter when a word is capitalized but when I’m proofreading documents as an attorney using “say all” I need to be able to identify if words in a sentence are capitalized more efficiently.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you
