moderated Re: How do I access what JAWS/Narrator says is "new notification"?

Steve Matzura
 

Sometimes there are notifications that don't show up in the Windows Actions Center. Sometimes I hear "new notification," and the Actions Center is empty, but I still hear it.  OCR doesn't work either. I keep hoping with every major update of Windows 10 that there will be a fix for this. However, these phantom notifications have always been advertisements for Windows of some form or other, never anything important. But they do show up.

Hello All,

 

I think I may have figured out this “new notification” issue.  I went to the Action Center, and there were several notifications, none of them anything that seemed to be a security issue, but mainly notices of news items from Google.  While in the Action Center, I was able to easily read the message text.  Did I figure this out, or is the “new notification” coming from some other source?

With either JAWS or Narrator, I am getting a prompt of a “new notification”, but I cannot figure out a way to access the notification.  Any ideas on where the notification originates, and how to deal with it?

do it about every day, play around with the site, and you'll find it is not hard, though take it one step at a time, and keep the accessibility help number handy for when you get yourself in the same shape as a pretzel. :)

Hello,

 

Using Windows 10 and Jaws 18.

 

Using Jaws, is it possible to setup an account and purchase items on Amazon without sighted help?  I’ve never setup an account on any web site so I’m not sure what to expect.

 

Thank you for any tips and advice in advance.

This is incorrect. I am using the latest version of JAWS, and I still needed to disable protected mode in Acrobat Adobe reader.

And just to add to this, in the latest version of Jaws this is no longer necessary, but if you use Jaws 2018 or an earlier version of Jaws 2019 you may have to do this.

Hi, Marvin.

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.

3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)

4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.

5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.

6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.

7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.

8. Restart Adobe Reader.

 

Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.

Subject: adobe acrobat reader dc and jaws issues

 

I thought I would try adobe acrobat reader dc, latest version. My adobe acrobat pro English is a few years old, version 5.5., but when I try to load a pdf, and then select that and load, it goes into like a web based or cloud, and jaws just sees it as blank. If I try to do a insert o, d for document, says ocr failed. So not sure why. Why is that, and not reading it that great and do have the google chrome extension. Maybe ray, can help. This is weird.

Anyone had this issue with adobe acrobat reader dc, current free version and got it from the official adobe site.

moderated Re: Jaws 2019 blocking desktop shortcut keystrokes

 

As I said, it's interesting that shortcuts for me seem to work fine and as somebody else said, they experience this also with NVDA and Narrator so it may not be Jaws.
On the other hand while one shouldn't have to employ such work-arounds, in this case I think the work-around is a much better solution

I, for example, always have at least half a dozen spreadsheets or so pinned to my jumplist in Excel and this way I can open any one of them quickly and easily.
If you have an app like Notepad pinned on the taskbar you can also use Shift + Windows Key + corresponding number to open a new instance of the application. For example, let's say I have Notepad in fourth place, I press Windows Key + 4 to open it. Now let's say I want another instance of Notepad in addition to the one I already started, I just press Shift + Windows Key + 4 and a new instance of Notepad opens.
Having said all this, I just put Outlook on my desktop and created the shortcut Control + Shift + O and it worked for me without a problem. I have also a shortcut for my Synology Drive which opens the folder on my hard drive where I sync the files on my Synology NAS to and it is Control + Alt + D and it's been working fine now for many month.
My Jaws shortcut, Control + Shift + J also works.
I think these are all the shortcuts I have since for all my applications I use the taskbar shortcuts as described above.

Hi,

I am also having this problem, but i'm not sure if it is due to the latest version of Jaws. It also happens with Narrator and NVDA.

I also can't seem to create a shortcut hotkey or at least not the one
I want to create. For instance, pressing Alt+Enter to get in to a
shortcut properties, then tabbing to the Hotkey field, and when I
enter the Hotkey sequence of
alt+Shift+Control+f, then Apply it and press Ok. I go back to check and the Hotkey has not been created at all.

I wonder if it is some kind of weird annoying Windows 10 Home security issue that is causing all these problems?
I am running latest version of Windows 10 Home.

Greetings,

I have done a clean install of both Jaws 2019, and Jaws 2018 on my Windows home 64 bit dell laptop.



If Jaws 2019 is running, the shortcut keystrokes I have set for my various programs do not work. IE, alt+shift+o for Outlook.

But, if I unload Jaws 2019 and run Jaws 2018 and press alt+shift+o Outlook opens.



These are the latest versions of both Jaws editions.



I obviously like some of the features in Jaws 2019, but will be running Jaws 2018 for the most part unless I can resolve this bloody annoying issue.



Thanks for any thoughts,

Greetings,

I have done a clean install of both Jaws 2019, and Jaws 2018 on my Windows home 64 bit dell laptop.



If Jaws 2019 is running, the shortcut keystrokes I have set for my various programs do not work. IE, alt+shift+o for Outlook.

But, if I unload Jaws 2019 and run Jaws 2018 and press alt+shift+o Outlook opens.



These are the latest versions of both Jaws editions.



I obviously like some of the features in Jaws 2019, but will be running Jaws 2018 for the most part unless I can resolve this bloody annoying issue.



Thanks for any thoughts,

Hi,

There are several ways to achieve this but try this one.

1.       Open both the workbook containing the sheet you want to copy and the workbook you wish to copy the sheet into.

2.       Go to the sheet you want to copy or move.

3.       Press F6 to cycle to the Sheet tab name - JAWS will say "Sheet Tab, TAB NAME tab". 
where TABNAME will be the name of the tab ie Sheet1 or whatever you've named the tab.

4.       Press the Applications key to display the equivalent of the right mouse click menu and arrow down until you here "Move or Copy Sheet"

5.       Select this option.  You will be asked to “move sheet before “ and be placed in a list of all the sheets in the workbook.

6.       Press Shift+Tab to move into a combo box and JAWS will say “To Book” and the current file name will be spoken.

7.       You can now arrow through the combo box and choose which file to move or copy the sheet into including to a new blank workbook.

8.       Once you’ve made your choice, tab down to the “Create a coy” check box. Check this if you want to copy the sheet leaving the original untouched. Leave blank if you want to move the sheet from the current file to the new file.

9.       Tab to the OK option and press Enter. The sheet will be moved or copied depending on your choice and you will be in the new file.

This is the same option to move sheets around in a workbook as well. Be careful of copying sheets with embedded links to other tabs in the file.

You can also get to this option by using the old command Alt+E M (Edit Move).

Hope this helps

And just to add to this, in the latest version of Jaws this is no longer necessary, but if you use Jaws 2018 or an earlier version of Jaws 2019 you may have to do this.

Hi, Marvin.

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.

3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)

4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.

5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.

6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.

7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.

8. Restart Adobe Reader.

 

Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.

I thought I would try adobe acrobat reader dc, latest version. My adobe acrobat pro English is a few years old, version 5.5., but when I try to load a pdf, and then select that and load, it goes into like a web based or cloud, and jaws just sees it as blank. If I try to do a insert o, d for document, says ocr failed. So not sure why. Why is that, and not reading it that great and do have the google chrome extension. Maybe ray, can help. This is weird.

Anyone had this issue with adobe acrobat reader dc, current free version and got it from the official adobe site.

In my case, I'm the only user, and am on the one account, which has full administrative rights.
Since the shortcuts work with Jaws 2018, but not 2019, this is definitely a Jaws issue.

Hi,

I am also having this problem, but i'm not sure if it is due to the latest version of Jaws. It also happens with Narrator and NVDA.

I also can't seem to create a shortcut hotkey or at least not the one I want to create. For instance, pressing Alt+Enter to get in to a shortcut properties, then tabbing to the Hotkey field, and when I enter the Hotkey sequence of
alt+Shift+Control+f, then Apply it and press Ok. I go back to check and the Hotkey has not been created at all.

I wonder if it is some kind of weird annoying Windows 10 Home security issue that is causing all these problems?

Well, they say misery loves company.  Good to know I’m not the only one.

The strange thing is, at work, with a similar setup, only it is Windows 10 Pro, the shortcut keystrokes work with Jaws 2019.

Not with my Windows 10 home…

I have been having this same problem, mainly with the Internet Explorer shortcut. In order to get it to work, I have to arrow to the shortcut and press ENTER on the shortcut. The hotkey assignment refuses to work much of the time.

Greetings,

I have done a clean install of both Jaws 2019, and Jaws 2018 on my Windows home 64 bit dell laptop.

 

If Jaws 2019 is running, the shortcut keystrokes I have set for my various programs do not work.  IE, alt+shift+o for Outlook.

But, if I unload Jaws 2019 and run Jaws 2018 and press alt+shift+o Outlook opens.

 

These are the latest versions of both Jaws editions.

 

I obviously like some of the features in Jaws 2019, but will be running Jaws 2018 for the most part unless I can resolve this bloody annoying issue.

 

Thanks for any thoughts,

Richard

Hi Marvin,

There is a security setting in Adobe Reader that you need to disable. Go to Adobe preferences by pressing CTRL + K. In the list of preferences, look for "Security, (enhanced)". Tab to where it says "enable enhanced Security" and uncheck it. You can use first letter navigation in this list, so press "S" till you get to "Security (Enhanced). Try that and if it doesn't work, there is also a setting to "Enable protected mode at startup" in the Security (Enhanced) preference. Try unchecking this as well. I can't recall if both settings need to be unchecked , and I am on my Mac at the moment so can't check.

Hope this helps

Russell

Hi, Marvin.

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.

3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)

4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.

5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.

6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.

7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.

8. Restart Adobe Reader.

 

Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.

Hi,
Have you gone into Accessibility, and set preferences there? If you haven’t, do so. It’s in the Edit menu of the latest Adobe Reader DC. There’s also the Setup Accessibility Assistant.
