JAWS and Goldwave presets

Mario
 

I'm using the latest version of Goldwave with JAWS 2018 on Windows 7:

whenever I navigate to any effect I want to test out on a sound file,
JAWS does not read the names of the presets as I down arrow but the
preset does activated when pressing F4 to preview the result, but then
don't know what preset I'm testing out. however, the only way I can get
JAWS to announce the name is to press alt+down arrow, arrow down or up
to a preset, press alt+up arrow, and press F4. this gets rather tedious
after doing it for a few times. in other instances where I can adjust a
setting for the preset and where I can type a value instead of arrowing
to change the value, JAWS remains silent when pressing the down or up
arrows.

I have emailed Jim Grimsby and it was established that the scripts are
at least loading properly but something is still not right because my
problem persists, and he is unable to Tandem at this time to investigate
and fix my problem.

does anyone have an idea as to what to do to either troubleshoot and/or
fix my problem, or have the email address of Gary Campbell, Jim Bowers,
Jitendra and/or Ramkumar?

Hello David. I would appreciate it if you would pass along links to the tutorials that you found particularly helpful.
Thanks so much.

Hello,

 

Does anyone here use Wordpress with their computer and Jaws? I also read that there are tutorials to use it, but again, I don’t know if that’s using it with jaws. Could I get some information from you guys on how well it works and whether or not I can start a blog?

Yes, absolutely right.
That's exactly what I do now.

Hi listers:

 

A few days ago, a list member had trouble using JAWS Beta in 40-minute mode.

 

The problem was that JAWS was saying a corporate license file was needed.  When selecting “OK” on this button, JAWS would close.

 

It turns out that this problem only occurs if you select the checkbox to not show the authorization dialog at startup.

 

So, when you first install the beta on a system not authorized for JAWS, you can still run it in 40-minute mode, but, you should not check the box that says “do not show this dialog again” at startup.  Each time you start the beta, you will need to hit the button “Continue in 40-minute mode” (by pressing alt-C) at startup.

 

I have reported this on the beta report form.

 

Hope this helps.

Brian, thanks for the link to information about Windows Mail.

Something odd happens occasionally. Usually my system says "Windows Live Mail," but now and then it says "Outlook Express." I'm puzzled. Any thoughts? I am using Windows 10 and JAWS 17.

You shouldn’t need to do that. There’s also another function in JAWS which might work in your situation.

 

Creating a Prompt

 

To create a prompt:

 

Move to the control for which the prompt is not properly spoken.

Press CTRL+INSERT+TAB.

A dialog box appears to walk you through the creation of the prompt. On the first page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to speak it,

and then select Next.

On the second page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to display it in Braille, and then select Next.

On the third page, specify a Tutor message to provide assistance with navigation or the use of this control. If you leave the Tutor message blank, the

default message is used. Select Finish to create your prompt.

Re: Problem when switching to a folder in Outlook 2016

Richard Turner
 

When closing an Email, you ought to be back in the inbox.  Perhaps on that issue, calling Microsoft accessibility to figure out what setting is causing you to not be back in the inbox would be worth while.

But, there are standard Microsoft hotkeys to switch between folders:

Control_1 inbox

Control-2 Calendar

Control-3 contacts

Control-4 ToDo list

Control-5 Notes

 

Microsoft accessibility 800-936-5900.

Re: Accessing attachments in outlook 2016

you should be able to shift-tab once while in the message and land on the attachments. If insert+a doesn't work, though, shift+tab probably doesn't either. There is a way that people attach files so you can't get to them with JAWS. Ugh!
