Subject: Moving Emails to Folders in Outlook 2016

Good afternoon,

My company recently upgraded to Office 2016, and I have a coworker who is
having trouble moving emails to folders. He used to go to the Home tab then
to the Move section. He would hit spacebar and be able to choose from
several folders. Now, he gets to the move item and Jaws says there's a grid
and he can't go to the grid by tabbing or using the arrow keys. He is on
Windows 7 and the latest build of jaws 2018. He used to be able to do this
function in Outlook 2010.

Thanks for your help,

I’m wondering if anybody else is having this problem.

I’m running Firefox version 62, latest version of JFW, and Windows 10.

I’ll be arrowing down through a web page, and all of a sudden JAWS just stops reading. Sometimes it comes back after a few seconds, but not always.

I especially notice it when reading the Boston Globe in NFB Newsline on the web.

 

Also when I’m using Google Docs, I’m noticing an irritating lag when I hit up or down arrow in a document.

 

Any thoughts on how to remedy this?

Re: need help with Convenient OCR

paul lemm
 

Hi Shirley,

 

Convenient OCR in jaws is actually really good, plus nice and easy to use to. Firstly, nope you don’t require a camera for OCR, so all you’ll need to do is open up the  file your friend sent you, then all you need to do is press the jaws key and space bar, you’ll hear a click to confirm this has worked, then all you need to do is press the O key, at this point jaws will say OCR then just press the D key, this tells jaws to perform OCR on the whole document,  jaws will say OCR started, it will take a few seconds, then jaws will say OCR finished  and you’ll be able to read the whole document as if it was a text file.

 

Hope this helps

 

Paul

Someone sent me some information I thought they were going to scan in and email to me. Instead, they took a picture of it and emailed that. I need the information. I never thought I would need to use the Convenient OCR in JAWS, so I never studied about it. And remember I have made it very clear that I’m not tech savvy.

Re: JAWS2019

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Here you go:
 
All the direct download links are below plus what's new in this version.
 
  JAWS 2019 Beta Report Form:
 
https://www.freedomscientific.com/Forms/JAWSBetaReport
 
32 Bit:
 
http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/180927VXOUIR/J2019.1809.27.400-enu-x86.exe
 
64 Bit:
 
http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/180927VXOUIR/J2019.1809.27.400-enu-x64.exe
 
What's new:
 
The following features are new to JAWS 2019. 
 
Faster JAWS Startup with Grace Period Authorization
 
JAWS 2019 introduces a new concept to help ease the delay in response when JAWS first launches and looks for authorization. In prior versions, JAWS would
not fully start until proper authorization was found. Since Authorization can include searching for a network license, the amount of time before JAWS started
speaking could be significant. While it is not possible to speed up this period directly, the authorization process will now be completed simultaneously
to startup. As JAWS searches for authorization, it enters a new "grace period" authorization state which provides limited functionality, similar to what
is available on the logon screen, so you can use speech and braille while authorization discovery takes place. Once the authorization check has finished,
JAWS then uses the correct feature set based on the license.
 
Separation of Office Scripts
 
JAWS Microsoft Office support for Word, Outlook, and Excel has been separated into different script sets which now load depending on the version of Office
currently running. This makes it much easier to make continued improvements to Office 365 support going forward without the risk of breaking JAWS functionality
in previous versions of Office for users who still rely on these older versions. If you are running Office 2016 or Office 365, and the version number includes
a build number of build 10000 or higher, the newly created Office settings for Word, Outlook, and Excel should be loaded when you run those applications.
If you are running earlier Office versions, JAWS should load the Word Classic, Outlook Classic, or Excel Classic settings.
 
To verify the version and build number of office you are using, press CTRL+INSERT+V. This command will also indicate if you are running a retail or subscription
version of Office. To verify which JAWS settings are loaded, press INSERT+Q.
 
Improved Performance in Office 365 Applications
 
With the changes made to separate the Office 365 support from the scripts for previous Office versions, we are now able to take advantage of more UIA functionality
provided by Microsoft. There is also much less decision making that needs to be done in the scripts since there are no longer other office versions to
be considered. As a result, users should notice greatly improved performance and responsiveness when using current versions of Word, Excel, and Outlook.
A few areas where users may notice increased responsiveness include:
 
list of 3 items
• Navigating large documents in Word that contain a lot of markup such as footnotes, endnotes, comments, tables, and so on.
• Editing data and formulas in Excel.
• Navigating large message folders in Outlook.
list end
 
For braille users, document spacing an formatting are now more accurately indicated on the braille display. This includes indents, outdents, and tab stops.
We have also addressed several issues with the braille cursor not always being positioned where expected, which made it difficult to sometimes edit using
braille.
 
If you are using a braille display with status cells, it will now also be easier to tell if text is centered or right justified by displaying "cj" or "rj"
in the first two cells when focused on the line containing the centered or right justified content.
 
Audio Ducking Support for Windows 10 version 1803 and Higher
 
The JAWS Audio Ducking feature is now supported in the Windows 10 Spring 2018 Creators update (version 1803) and higher. Audio Ducking causes the volume
of other programs to be lowered while JAWS is speaking. For example, if you are listening to music and JAWS begins talking, the volume of the music will
be slightly lowered so you can comfortably hear JAWS and then raised back to its current level when JAWS stops talking.
 
By default, audio remains at the same level as JAWS speech. To enable Audio Ducking, open the Startup Wizard from the JAWS Help menu and select the "Lower
the volume of other programs while JAWS is speaking" checkbox located on the Speech Settings page. Alternatively, Audio Ducking can be turned on through
Settings center by doing the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the JAWS default settings.
3. In the Search edit box, type "volume" without the quotes.
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to "Lower the volume of other programs while JAWS is speaking" in the filtered search results in the tree view.
5. Press SPACEBAR to toggle this option.
list end
 
You can also press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by D to quickly toggle Audio Ducking on or off. The current setting will remain in effect until you press the
layered keystroke again or restart JAWS.
 
TAB Key No Longer Echoed
 
For users who leave Typing Echo enabled, JAWS will no longer announce the TAB key by default. This means you will not constantly hear "ALT+TAB" while switching
between applications or hear "TAB" spoken each time as you move through links on web pages.
 
Note: If you prefer to have the TAB key spoken, or you would like to mute other keys such as SPACEBAR, ENTER, or ESC, open Settings Center and search for
"manage key labels". For more details, refer to this support article on using the
Manage Key Labels
 feature.
 
Skype
 
Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.
 
list of 3 items
1. You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point
not yet known.
2. You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in JAWS. See details below.
3. You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7
or 8 for the best support.
list end
 
For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the
Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".
 
For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands
are:
 
list of 3 items
• Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E
• Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y
• Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N
list end
 
You can also use the JAWS commands INSERT+W and INSERT+H while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when
using Skype. For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the
Skype Hotkeys Web Page.
 
Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another
application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the
caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.
 
Download JAWS 2019
 
The following briefly describes how to download, save, and install the JAWS public beta release. 
 
list of 4 items
1. Select the preferred language which will list the available download links (By default English is selected).
2. Select the appropriate download link.
3.  When the dialog box opens, choose Save and select a location where you can easily find the downloaded executable file.                     Make sure
to download the correct version (64-bit or 32-bit) for your computer,                     which we have detected is a 64-bit computer. Instructions to
verify whether you have a 64-bit or 32-bit computer can be found at the bottom of this page.
4. Run the executable and follow the talking installer.
list end
Select your preferred language:
English
list of 2 items
• 
JAWS 2019.1809.27  64-bit English  - September 2018
• 
JAWS 2019.1809.27  32-bit English  - September 2018
list end

Shirley:

Try this…

Open the file you were sent.

Hold down the JAWS key (bottom left of the key pad) and press the space bar. 

You will hear a sound.

Release the keys.

Then press O and then press D .

It should say something like OCR started.

Give it a little time and a window should open containing the info you want to read.

You can use it if you don’t have a camera. It can process certain types of files, like .jpg files.

So, how did this person send the picture?

You should be able to save it on your machine, and if you have JAWS 2018, you can use the “recognise with JAWs” item in the context menu of File Explorer to try and OCR it.

Try saving attachments.

Having said that, I feel confident that I could retrieve the information the person sent to me if I could use something like the OCR that I read about in the JAWS help menu. I just don’t fully understand how to do it.

 

Thanks for any help.

Re: Moving Emails to Folders in Outlook 2016

This works for me in outlook 2016.
With the focus on the email you want to move,go to the Applications menus and either arrow down or use m to bring you to the option to move the email to another.

Good afternoon,

My company recently upgraded to Office 2016, and I have a coworker who is having trouble moving emails to folders. He used to go to the Home tab then to the Move section. He would hit spacebar and be able to choose from several folders. Now, he gets to the move item and Jaws says there’s a grid and he can’t go to the grid by tabbing or using the arrow keys. He is on Windows 7 and the latest build of jaws 2018. He used to be able to do this function in Outlook 2010.

If you’re upset about updates happening in the computer restarting when you’re using it, you can reset your active hours. That is in the update in security section of Settings.

Human or not, sometimes it isn't worth to get all upset because your computer might reboot after an update by itself. Maybe if it did so while I was in the middle of a Skype call I would get upset, but it won't do that.

Well, I don't want it to reboot whenever it feels like it! I want to make that decision, I am the human here.

Thanks.

Hi. I am on the latest Jaws 2018 update and if I look at the Windows
update, it says one update ready to install, but no download or
restart button. I tried the touch cursor, but I get no different
result.

Anyone else seeing this one? very strange.

I am on build 579 of the 1709 version.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I’m wondering if anybody else is having this problem.

I’m running Firefox version 62, latest version of JFW, and Windows 10.

I’ll be arrowing down through a web page, and all of a sudden JAWS just stops reading. Sometimes it comes back after a few seconds, but not always.

I especially notice it when reading the Boston Globe in NFB Newsline on the web.

 

Also when I’m using Google Docs, I’m noticing an irritating lag when I hit up or down arrow in a document.

 

Any thoughts on how to remedy this?

JAWS and Brailliant 32

denise avant <denise.avant@...>
 

Hello all,

I have a Brailliant 32 Braille Display. I am having difficulty connecting it by USB with the latest version of JAWS 2018. It was working just fine until I had to disconnect and reconnect the Braille display about three days ago.

I tried reinstalling the Brailliant drivers, and going through JAWS to reconnect. I hear a sound as if the computer is connecting. But nothing happens. I have this issue whenever I update JAWS to the latest version. But this time, there was no update.
