Where were you searching from? Was it in the main window where the inbox comes up? If so, the dropdown menu voiced clearly in Internet Explorer. I don’t know what it would say in Chrome, or another browser.

Thanks Bill.  I'll give that a try.

I do not understand why a CTRL + F (a straight browser find) would be able to locate that button when a JAWS Find (INS + CTRL + F) does not.  I generally encourage my clients to go with a JAWS Find first as it's been my general experience that it will find objects with label text (whether visible or not) as well as straight webpage text.  

I'm not doubting what you say, but I could swear we did a JAWS Find on just the word "Settings" this afternoon and kept getting the "not found" dialog.  Why?  That makes no sense if a straight browser find can find something.

Hi again, Brian. There is no shortcut for the Settings dropdown menu. The quickest way to get to the Settings Dropdown Menu is:

 

1. Press CONTROL plus F.

2. Type Settings and press ENTER.

3. Focus will move to the Settings Dropdown Menu.

4. Press Space to expand the dropdown menu.

Yes, getting the same issue from time to time with JAWS 2018.  Have not yet seen it in the 2019 beta release.  Agree, very annoying.

Subject: Jaws 2018 loses focus and stops voicing #jaws #fusion

 

I do tech support for a state agency, and support a user on Fusion 2018. He has a 64 bit Windows 10 desktop machine with Office 2016. For this user, Jaws frequently seems to lose focus and stops voicing any detailed information. For example, it will voice "alt-tab" when those keys are used, but won't announce the window it's on and is completely silent if the user drops into any given window. The only fix I've come up with is completely closing and restarting Fusion. It seems to be connected with Office 2016, particularly Outlook. Also, does anyone know of a keyboard command to completely unload Fusion? Closing the software is nearly impossible for the user when Jaws is voicing so little information.


JAWS 2018 - Does it have the equivalent of NVDA's "Focus Highlight" Add-On?

 

As the very odd man out being sighted but using screen readers for experimenting and figuring out issues, it is often difficult to know where they have focus at the moment, particularly if the object that focus is not visible on the screen and there is no attempt to scroll the screen to follow where the virtual cursor has focus.

NVDA has an add-on that causes various colors and line styles to outline the object that has screen reader focus and keeps the virtual cursor and its corresponding on-screen focused object in sync.

This can be very, very helpful for me.  It was my understanding that JAWS 2018 and later were to have either a built in feature or scripting that would produce the same result, or something very similar to it.  I have yet to find that if it does exist.

This seems like as good a place to ask as any before resorting to VFO technical support.

Standard in this case.   Perhaps I should revert to the Basic HTML view where it had been a link at the top of the page.  I try to avoid that particular approach when possible and using standard can be done with reasonable efficiency, but if it can't, it can't.

Hi Cristóbal,
 
One thought is maybe your screen echo has changed.  While in Outlook press, Jaws key + S, to tobble through settings.  They are Highlighted, All, & None.  It sounds like it might be set on, All, so switch it to, Highlighted, and see if that helps.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Dan Yeswhen I call FS support lady did able to helps me on Tuesday afternoon when I told her that I download and installed jaws 2018 on Monday afternoon when I spoke with fs man and Microsoft disability support with the man they tell me jaws 18 is done when they listen to my laptop with jaws 18 window 10 on IE and heard the history preview history close then arrow right to today close then arrow right today open then arrow up it say yesterday close .

So when I explains everything to fs lady support she told me that strange jaws 18 and jaws 2018 not read up so she did jaws tandem she find the problem so she fix it for me. Here what she told me below

Your history settings were set to not save your history so none of the history from yesterday was saved.  I set it to save your history from now on.  If you go in right now, it will still not show yesterday, but if you go in there tomorrow, you will see yesterday again because it started saving again since I changed it.

To add to this, if you just want it in the one app, then make sure you're in
that app before pressing Insert+V. If you want progress bars never to be
spoken, then press Insert+V, then Control+Shift+D to save to the default
settings.

Debbie, To stop JAWS from speaking progress bars, hit Insert+V and keep
hitting the Down Arrow until you hear General Options. Hit the Down Arrow

will hear "Progress bar silent" then hit Enter. Jaws will no longer speak

The layered keystroke, JAWS KEY+S, followed by the letter S, in JAWS 14, is
a toggle to mute and unmute JAWS.

Hi Dave,

I have two ideas, but someone else may know others. First you can press
the
JAWSKey plus the letter S and cycle through what JAWS will say. The
choices
are all, none and highlighted. Mine has always defaulted to highlighted.
That will stop it saying the numbers as they advance.

Or you could use the layered keystroke JAWSKey then space and then S. This
has the choices of speech on demand and full speech. Remember with both of
these once you are done with the streaming, you will have to reset them.

Hope this helps!

Last week, I had been having trouble with Firefox and JAWS.  This was resolved by updating JAWS and turning off automatic updates in Firefox, locking it at version 52 ESR.  Now, in the last couple of days, when I respond to an email using Windows Live Mail, the system locks when I hit Alt+S to send my message.  I am still able to read my message with JAWS, but nothing happens when I try to edit or switch to another window with ALT+TAB.  I must bring up Program Manager with ALT+CRL+DELETE and hit the Switch To Button for Windows Live Mail.  It will go to WLM and then I can ALT+TAB to my message and hit ALT+S and the message will be sent.  Another thing that I have noticed is that after I add a signature to my messages, I can not edit them any further.  Is this weird or what?
