Hi, David. The only thing I can recommend is, before you do your repair, go into Utilities>Explore My Settings, and remove all settings files. This is based on the behavior of INSERT plus SPACE, followed by Z. This runs JAWS with no settings configuration files in effect. Then do a JAWS repair, and see if this fixes the problem.

Subject: JAWS 2021 and Brave Browser: Not Allowing Me To Navigate With Left/Right Arrow Keys In The Address Bar

 

First, I want to say that the problem I’m about to describe is likely not a reproducible JAWS bug but is something which seems to be some sort of corruption unique to my profile.

I’m using JAWS 2021, Brave 1.18.75, Windows 10 Pro, 20H2, Dell Lattitude E7270.

This problem did not occur using my old Dell OptiPlex.

The problem does not occur with other browsers.

When I open a page in Brave all navigation commands work as expected until I navigate to the address bar by either pressing ctrl-L or alt-D.

When the address bar gains focus JAWS speaks it as it should. However, cursor navigation commands do not speak as I navigate with left/right arrow keys and selection commands along with ctrl-C do not allow me to copy the URL to the clipboard.

If I press insert-space, followed by Z to open a temporary default profile navigation commands work as expected.

As soon as I toggle back to my own profile I cannot navigate, select or copy the URL.

Here is what I have done so far.

  1. Run the JAWS 2021 installer to initiate a repair. Same behavior after the repair.
  2. As I use Leasey I then uninstalled that program. Restarting the PC without Leasey still did not fix the problem.
  3. Reinstalled Leasey with no change after PC restart.

I’m wondering if there are specific files in my user settings folder (not shared settings) which I could delete to see if that might fix the issue.

Feedback is appreciated.

Jason:

 

You might be right about this.

 

And, that makes problems harder to resolve, because not everyone has the same experiences.

 

Recently, for example, I’ve been having issues with my Outlook address books.

 

I’m now no longer able to navigate through and edit e-mail group lists, and I have had to figure out an alternate way to copy e-mail addresses from my address books when needed.

 

I’ve contacted Freedom Scientific about these issues, and they acknowledge them.

 

They say they are related to Microsoft 365 updates.

 

It’s very frustrating, to say the least.

 

It makes me wonder whether the Microsoft accessibility people ever collaborate with Freedom Scientific prior to releasing updates.

I had to go in and set view to draft, and now all is ok again.

 

Also, this morning, when my e-mail downloaded, it was arranged in some sort of a weird view which was not readable by Jaws.  Had to go in and manually change the view to descending order by date.

 

I suspect all of this might have been caused by yet another Microsoft 365 update.

Hello,
It is possible that FS put script definitions in default.jsd that are

that include code from other libraries. Also, the psd d files are used
for the command to insert a function in code, and for the  verification
that parameters are correctly listed for functions.
There is a JAWS scripting list on freelists. This list has most of the
professional scripters on it, so they get impatient if people ask fairly

nobody will answer.
Please try to search the archive of over 10 years of scripting history

moderated Scripts in default user disappeared and Jaws scripting mailing list

Leo
 

Hello everyone,

I got a couple of questions. Firstly, when I’m in the Jaws script manager, specifically in the default script, and I list all the scripts in the default user by using the combination control plus L,  after doing so, I look for the script where I want to move the focus of the cursor, so I push enter, but always that I do it, a message pops up, saying that the script is present in the .JSD documentation file, but the script is not present in the default.JSS file.  I know the scripts are working perfectly because everything  is working just fine, except for this. So, how can I access the scripts in the default.JSS file?

 

Secondly, is there any active mailing list for Jaws scripting?

moderated Trouble reading MS word documents

Shirley Tracy
 

Hello everyone,

 

Are any of you beginning to have trouble reading documents in MS Word? Or is it just me?

 

I wrote an important letter to a company a few days ago, and I was trying to read it today to make some changes before sending it. I had trouble simply reading line by line. Did something change? Or am I in The Twilight Zone?

Is it connecting directly via WIFI, or is the device connected to the router
going through the network via the WIFI?
It may make a difference.
I've typically preferred to connect WIFI printers to the router and access
them through the network, instead of my computer having to negotiate another
WIFI connection.
Some of these devices you can connect them either way, and turn off its WIFI
and just plug it into the router.

I have done that. Both Openbook and JAWS acknowledge that they see
it, but nothing happens.

Hi Ann,

Have you selected HP as the scanner in Openbook? If not open OB and
press, Alt + A, to open the advanced menu, down arrow to, Device
selection and press enter.
You should now be on, Scanner, so tab 1 time into the list of
options, arrow up / down to select the one you want, then tab to,
Okay, and press enter.
Remember to save your settings.

Stay safe and take care. Mike.

So far I can't get JAWS OCR (or Openbook) to scan with the HP Office
pro 8020 all-in-one printer/scannner. Windows fax and scan works
with it with no problem, but although JAWS lists the scanner as a
source, says it is processing, gives no error message ... the scanner
just sits there doing nothing. Any clue how to make the stinker work?

Thanks,

Ann
