Hi,
Some of the freezing probably is in part due to the fact that you are runningWindows 8.1 with newer technology that continues to evolve.
If possible, I'd upgrade to Windows 10.

Have you tried accessing m.facebook.com with another browser? Perhaps with NVDA? How about the regular Facebook site? Same results? Is your browser up to date.

I’ve visited the mobile FB site today via Chrome and Firefox and have had no issues.

Re: How do I make the "pane" with the "resume reading" button go away in MS Word 2016?

Richard Turner
 

Hi Richard,
I read the instructions the same as you.
Given the sensitivity of the registry, I do not feel I should be giving advice here. But, I would call Microsoft Accessibility; 800-936-5900.
I was hoping those instructions would just work. It looked like a good resource.
I hope you can get a good solution.

Basically, when I go into the permissions>advanced dialog box as instructed in the solution, there is first a list view listing classes of users.  In fact, this list view is in both the “permissions” and its sub dialogue box “advanced.”  Then, within the “advanced” dialogue box, there is a first check box and then there is a second check box.  For the classes of users, I am focused on the one listed there, me; but they all have the same check box configuration.  The first check box is checked, and it says “Include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent.”  The second check box *is* unchecked, and it says “Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object.”

 

Now, my conundrum is that the solution below says that this second check box should be unchecked.  Well, it already is.  So, I am wondering if the first check box should also be unchecked.

 

BTW, in the solution it says to go to the “… 15.0 …” HKEY.  I am going to the “… 16.0 …” HKEY.  I think this is correct; referring to the Office version you have.  I have MS Office 16 (i.e., Word 2016); and find this item there and nothing under the “… 15.0 …” HKEY.

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.

Have you googled it?

Subject: track changes (for Word 2016 documents) broken in Jaws 2019?

Hi All -
Decided to give Jaws 2019 a try because I've been having a weird problem:
When replying to an email message in Outlook 2016, the cursor switches to
virtual so that when I start typing my reply, it's as if quick keys are on,
and for example, "T" tries to find a table instead of typing the letter t..
(if anyone has similar problem and knows how to fix, would love to hear it).
But in Jaws 2019, there is something major different in how "track changes"
are handled in Word documents. In 2018, with track changes on, Jaws would
only read my inserted text, which is what I wanted to hear. Now, Jaws 2019
reads both the inserted and deleted text, which is very confusing to listen
to. I've tried various combinations of Word and Jaws settings with no luck.
I've tried turning off Track Changes in Jaws settings (no change in
behavior). I've tried changing how tracked changes are displayed in Word (no
changes in behavior, although I haven't tried every combination).
The only thing that might fix it is to turn off track changes in Word
(control+shift+e), but that defeats the purpose because I'm trying to track
changes as I type. To constantly change this setting between when I want to
type and when I want to read my changed text makes no sense.
Help?
-Amy
P.S. Response from vispero was ridiculous. The tech support had very little
idea what I was talking about when discussing track changes. When I asked to
speak to someone who knows what track changes is and how it works, she said
no one there uses track changes so there was no one to talk to. Give me a
break. They said I had to send a sample document, which I'll do.
Thumbs down on tech support...

Hi, Kevin. I accidentally left out a couple of steps in my post about
turning off Preview Handlers in Preview Pane. I'll repost including the
deleted steps.

1. Open Control Panel.
2. Open File Explorer Options, and press ENTER.
3. SHIFT TAB once to the tab categories.
4. Right Arrow once to the View tab.
5. TAB a couple of times to the Advanced tree view.
6. Press the letter S about five times until you hear Show Preview Handlers
in Preview Pane.
7. Space until this option is off.
8. TAB to the Apply button, and press ENTER.
9. TAB again to the OK button, and press ENTER.

Now the Show Preview Handlers in Preview Pane option will be turned off.

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature.
It's meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like
a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is
also present in the iOS platform.
You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the
phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.
The other thing, I have no idea.

Subject: Two More Problems With Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016

Hello, again, everyone.

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws
2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws
skips parts of lines. I can read the complete lines by arrowing down
through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first
letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I'm composing,
and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type
again after several seconds.

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how
or whether they got resolved.

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: JAWS 2019: JAWS often speaks version number when navigating or opening some dialogs

 

I rarely ever use iE any more, but I just tried it with Jaws 2019 on 4 different websites and not once did Jaws speak it's version when I pressed Jaws Key+F7. Not sure what could be causing this, have you called FS tech support to see if they know anything about this?

I have noticed the same problem and I am using the latest version of JAWS 2018.  In particular when in IE and I hit a JAWS key F7 to open a list of links it says the version of JAWS before saying "Links List Dialogue".  I haven't taken time yet to investigate why.  Open to ideas to fix this problem/annoyance.

Hi. I'm using JAWS 2019 on Windows 10 Pro. At times when opening a JAWS dialog I often will hear JAWS announce the full version number of the JAWS program before I hear the prompt of the dialog which I am expecting. This version information is the same information you will hear if you open the JAWS window and press insert+up arrow to read the current line. It does not happen often and so it is very difficult to reproduce. Has anybody else noticed this issue?

In Windows 10 as far as I know you can't defrag an SSD, Windows 10 knows if you use an SSD and it will "optimize" it but not defragment it.

Sorry, you are half right.  You should not run a defrag on an ssd, but chkdsk is basically a read test and it will not hurt an ssd.  Have a look at this link:

There can e lots of reasons for a computer to run slow.  I had slowness issues when i upgraded my old laptop to windows 10.  It wasn't exactly fast under windows 7 either, though.  I finally found the answer: a failing hard drive was the main issue.  Just because windows thinks the drive is okay doesn't mean you shouldn't do a chkdsk once in a while just to check things out.

Is there any reason to not upgrade to Windows 10? This will be an upgrade on an older computer, and not a replacement computer, if that would make a difference.

Re: track changes (for Word 2016 documents) broken in Jaws 2019?

Hi Amy. I can help you with the email question that you have. I experience
this too from time to time. Whenever it happens, I close my email, and
simply highlight the message in the list of messages, and press Control plus
the letter R to reply to it. This issue has been happening to me since JAWS
2018 was released. Good luck resolving your track changes problem.
Depending on your tech support person, it is really hit or miss. Sorry you

Subject: track changes (for Word 2016 documents) broken in Jaws 2019?

Hi All -
Decided to give Jaws 2019 a try because I've been having a weird problem:
When replying to an email message in Outlook 2016, the cursor switches to
virtual so that when I start typing my reply, it's as if quick keys are on,
and for example, "T" tries to find a table instead of typing the letter t..
(if anyone has similar problem and knows how to fix, would love to hear it).
But in Jaws 2019, there is something major different in how "track changes"
are handled in Word documents. In 2018, with track changes on, Jaws would
only read my inserted text, which is what I wanted to hear. Now, Jaws 2019
reads both the inserted and deleted text, which is very confusing to listen
to. I've tried various combinations of Word and Jaws settings with no luck.
I've tried turning off Track Changes in Jaws settings (no change in
behavior). I've tried changing how tracked changes are displayed in Word (no
changes in behavior, although I haven't tried every combination).
The only thing that might fix it is to turn off track changes in Word
(control+shift+e), but that defeats the purpose because I'm trying to track
changes as I type. To constantly change this setting between when I want to
type and when I want to read my changed text makes no sense.
Help?
-Amy
P.S. Response from vispero was ridiculous. The tech support had very little
idea what I was talking about when discussing track changes. When I asked to
speak to someone who knows what track changes is and how it works, she said
no one there uses track changes so there was no one to talk to. Give me a
break. They said I had to send a sample document, which I'll do.
Thumbs down on tech support...

Re: How do I make the "pane" with the "resume reading" button go away in MS Word 2016?

Undoubtedly, this is the solution.  However, I am sort of scared to edit the registry.  So, for now I think I want to try to find something a bit more simple.  Maybe I will try this later if all else fails.  You are very smart and kind for finding this, though!

Hi Richard, 

I found an article to edit the registry to get rid of the “pick up where you left off” feature.

If you are comfortable editing the registry, give this a try.  I’d backup the registry first even if you are comfortable doing this.

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.

Have you googled it?

What method are you using to make your selection?

I’m not sure I ever had Jaws say anything about from and to, but I’ve only really been using Jaws since version 18, for a few months, then 2018 and now 2019.

Hi!

 

In JAWS 2019 using MS Word 2016, when I make a large selection it does not say a short phrase of the “from” and “to” of the selection.  For example, if I selected an entire paragraph that started with “See spot run” and ended with “ball is blue,” these phrases used to be spoken as the “from” and “to” selection along with the total number of characters within the selection.  In earlier versions of MS Word and JAWS, this behavior was consistent, but not any longer in JAWS 2019 with MS Word 2016.

 

Is anyone else noticing this?  Has, or should, this been reported to the JAWS bug fix cue?

 

Thanks,

Richard
