Hi,

Sadly, no, these all require a password. I have reported it to the university, so we will see what they have to say.

Do you have an example that can be viewed without needing to be logged in to something?  Having a working (or non-working) example is the only way I can do any digging around.

Are you able to download the presentations and run them in native PowerPoint?

I have found over the years that the web-based readers are sometimes problematic.  I try to avoid using browser-based readers for MS-Office documents (regardless of the Office program) whenever possible.

moderated narrated power points and JAWS

Cynthia Bruce
 

Hi All,

 

I am using JAWS 2020, and my new university employer is requiring that I complete training modules in a couple of different areas. The on line modules were created by the e-learning branch of our institution, and they seem to use narrated power points a lot. I am sure it is possible that I am missing something, but I have tried to access these multiple times and can’t get beyond the introductory slide. The screen just seems to be blank. I used Chrome since tis is what they recommended, but I have tried others using other browsers.

 

Is there a way to move through these, or am I out of luck?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

Hi Jim,
 
How about if you tell Defender to ignore the installer?  Also, do you have your system set to install apps from outside the MS Store?  Steps for both are below:
 
From: Brian Vogel
This question gets asked every once in a while, so having a dedicated topic in the archive seems prudent.  Credit to Joseph Lee for the step-by-step instructions,
which I have modified ever so slightly.
Adding & Removing Scan Exclusions in Windows Defender Security Center
 
The following steps were created using the Windows 10 Version 1803 version of Windows Defender Security Center:
 
list of 6 items
1. Open Windows Defender Security Center.
2. Navigate to Virus & threat protection pane then activate the Virus & threat protection settings link then activate the Add or remove exclusions link.
 
3. Select Add an exclusion.
4. Select File or Folder depending on what you wish to exclude.  Options for Process or a File type are also presented, but these are used relatively rarely.
 
5. Navigate to the file and/or folder where Defender is being told to skip scanning and press Enter.
6. When User Account Control appears, respond Yes to continue.
list end
 
If you wish to remove something from the exclusions list, follow steps 1 thru 3, but then select an item in the exclusions list, then click “Remove” and
respond Yes when UAC appears.
 
 
End of file app store steps are below.
 
 
To change your app download and installation options  to something other than the Microsoft Store do the following:
 
1. Windows + I, for settings and tab 1 time to, System.
 
2. Right arrow to, Apps,  press enter, and tab 1 time into the list of categories.
 
3. The first item in the list is, Apps and Features, press enter on this, and tab 1 time to the app install options combobox. 
 
4. Press, Alt + down arrow, to open the combobox.
There are four options:
1. only from the Microsoft Store.
 
2. Anywhere, but warn me if it's not from the Microsoft store.
 
3. anywhere but let me know if there is a comparable app in the Microsoft store.
 
 4. Anywhere.
 
5. Arrow up / down to the option you want and press enter.  Press, Alt + F4, to close and just to make sure your settings change takes effect, reboot your
computer.
 
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Subject: Unable to install Stascom software that Mike B. Spoke of yesterday

All,
The other day Mike wrote the list about a program called Stascom and I liked some of the features.  I downloaded the installer but I can’t complete the installation.  The best I can tell is Windows Defender is blocking and putting the executable in quarantine.  I am running Windows 10 version 2004 and it is fully patched as of 10/7/2020 and JAWS 2020 (the August version).  The software installs but on the first run I get a message that the process was blocked and my only option is “OK”.  If I navigate to the directory and run the program I get the same message and the executable disappears.
Any help is appreciated.  I am very new to Win 10.
Thanks,
Jim

I have noticed that more and more of my office product windows don't maximize automatically as I open things since moving to Office 365 or 2016 retail. I wonder if this causes some of the issues people are talking about. I definitely find I'm having to manually maximize them quite often, but cannot recall if this coincides with any of the lost focus issues I've had.

To be fair though it is most likely Windows pulling Jaws focus to some temporary notification or something like that.

Every time I turn around I hear Lost focus, press alt tab.
I hope this bug is fixed when 2021 is released.
Many thanks.

Thanks Mike and Brian.
Brian:  Yes, that is the exact software I was referring to.  Thanks for the update on its EOS and EOL.  That is sad news as this sounded like a nifty little tool, I will have to keep an eye out for a replacement.
Mike:  Thanks for the ideas and instructions.  I am very new to Windows 10.  I will give them a try just to see if I can get it installed, but based on Brian’s last comment it sounds futile.

Regards,
Jim

Depending on exactly how it does what it does, it could eventually break, and if it does that's the end of the road.

I've seen it over 3-4 years or so, and am getting more exasperated by the day.

No verbosity setting has no bearing. This is a jaws issue over many versions.

I, for one, can't remember when i last heard that one. I'm currently using the beta with my verbosity set to intermediate, I wonder if that has anything to do with it? I've been using that setting for longer than I can remember.

So you never hear "Jaws has lost focus. Press alt plus tab"? Is announce lost focus turned off in settings? I have been using Jaws for over 25 years on dozens of systems and it has always happened more than it should. It got better for wile then came back and will get better again.

To be fair though it is most likely Windows pulling Jaws focus to some temporary notification or something like that.

Hi Ron,

I'm not experiencing this issue.

Could you tell us more about your system?

What version of the Operating system are you running?
Is it the home or pro version?
Is your jaws up-to-date?

Thanks,

Jessica
