Re: Suggestions for a new wireless keyboard

 

The only wireless keyboard I have ever had which has a working applicationb key as well as 2 Windows Keys is the Logitech G613 Mechanical gaming keyboard. It also has 6 keys down the left side (to the left of where tab, caps lock, shift and control are and the keyboard can be used either via a Bluetooth connection or a USB dongle. It is also called "Lightspeed" because if you use it with the USB dongle on a PC it bosts a 1 millisecond latency and it is in fact extremely responsive and for a PC I would never use it via Bluetooth. It is, however, nice if you have an iPhone or other smartphone, switching between Bluetooth and USB is done via a mechanical slider switch at the top and it is very convenient if you also want to use it with a smartphone or tablet.

I found that unfortunately the durability/reliability is a bit lacking, I had mine less than a year when Jaws sometimes was doing weird things like skipping key presses and so on and eventually I realized that it was the keyboard because when I connected one of my Das Keyboard mechanical wired keyboards the problem disappeared. The feel of the keyboard is OK although it's not my favourite and I much prefer the Blue switches of the Das Keyboard. At home I use a Logitech K780 which you can pair with up to 3 devices and this one also comes with a USB dongle, but it's not a mechanical keyboard and it does not have an application key or a Windows key on the right.

I do not have a preference. The one I have at present, is a standard keyboard. It only has one Windows key. While it has an Applications key, it does not work with my HP Pavillion DV6 laptop, so I always need to use SHIFT+F10, to open the Applications menue. The set of keys between the main keyboard and the number pad, only has 5 keys, With the DELETE key being the size of the INSERT and DELETE keys, very inconvenient, especially if you need to use the insert key.

First off do you want a mechanical or standard keyboard? I have both.The mechanical one I have is  a little light on the touch. I'd like it to be stiffer my standard Logitech keyboard isNice but Nice bud I would use The mechanical one more if the keys were a little stiffer.

 G skill mechanical keyboards are nice just make sure you get the stiffer keys. And of course logitech K-series are excellent. Both brands of keyboards have ones that do both Bluetooth and wireless with a little dongle.

Hello everyone:

 

My ten-year-old wireless keyboard, like me,  is definetly getting knackered, and showing its age. Some of the keys are getting stiff when I depress them, and the on/off switch, does not work properly all the time.

 

I am looking for a wireless keyboard, which has 2 Windows keys, and has the 6-pack of keys between the main keyboard and the number pad. I am not that bothered if the keyboard does not have the additional keys for launching certain programs and for raising and lowering the volume, and muting the sound. Oh! yes! I am only interested in US style keyboards.

 

Thank you for any and all suggestions

Only thing you really need to know is that F9 will turn it on or, if it's
on, it will turn it off. That of course is provideed it's available on the
site you are on, Jaws should announce this, but you can always just press F9
and if it's available and you go to the top of the page, arrowing down
should give you this:

It is very accessible you just download the app on your phone and everything is accessible and of course Alexa is completely voice driven so it is totally accessible to. And you can do so many things that it's ridiculous. like a Brian said Google it.

Downloading a pdf with JAWS Google chrome drive pdf viewer

Shai
 

Hello,
I am trying to download a pdf that opens in drive pdf viewer with
Google classroom JAWS2020 but there is no download button to be found.
I tried pressing alt with f to see if I can get a file menu and also
to disable the virtual cursor in order to tab around and see if I can
locate a download button but again I cannot find it.
I know that Google has made changes to drive and the layout has gotten
a bit more complicated so I am wondering if anyone has steps to locate
this button?
I pressed enter on the actions button and details and I was able to
see that viewers do have permission to download the file.
I know that the pdf can be opened in Google docs but I would prefer
to be able to download the pdf since there is mathematical content I
need to email out and I want it displayed correctly.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Re: JAWS 20212 beta, five Japanese voices

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the five new Japanese voices that have always been part of the 3.0 SAPI version. There are enough voices to make male and female voice profiles for PC and JAWs Cursors, Keyboard and Tutor&Message.
Does that mean we'll get the Farsi voice, Stephanie UK English and Damian U.S. English by the 2021 release?

Thanks for the point about Excel. That is a significant bug out of the way.

And, thanks for a good laugh about being older than 25 and still working pretty well. Great line!

Two notes on the beta:

1. Eudora works well with it! FS says they nno longer support Eudora, and I have to install the old scripts to make it work. But with 2020, the graphics for items like 'read" and "unread" absolutely did not work. With 2021, I had to build the .JGF file, but it works! I realize that using a 25-year-old email program is pretty retro, but I am delighted that it still works! I'm older than 25, and I still work pretty well.

2. In Excel, When typing data into a cell and then tabbing, neither JAWS nor NVDA would read the first character typed. So if you entered 4321, JAWS would say 321. With 2021, JAWS speaks all four characters.
