In theory, pressing alt+1 should take you to the first item in the QAT, alt+2 to the second, etc. My experience is that that only works sometimes.

Hi Alan, 
I had no idea excel could open html files. 
I thought that was just a web browser format?

Press ALT to enter Command Mode. Press UP ARROW once to focus in the QAT.

Press RIGHT and LEFT ARROW to navigate the QAT commands.

Each is associated with a number. Use these numbers with ALT to execute the command.

The first QAT command is ALT-NUMBER ROW 1, the second is ALT-NUMBER ROW 2, etc.

moderated Jaws 2020 lag with Outlook 365

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:

 

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

 

Helpful feedback welcome.

Norma

Just to point out that there are 2 Miscellaneous folders in the Settings Center.  1 is a sub-folder of, Web / HTML / PDFs, but the 2nd Miscellaneous folder is the 2nd from the bottom of the folder list, and this is where the MSAA option is located.  This is an application specific setting only.

One other option before you look at scripting:
In the JAWS settings center, there is an option to force JAWS to use MSAA to interpret list views. I believe this is in the misc. section. So there is a slight possibility that if you toggle this for your application it will perform better.

I once experienced this on a Windows 7 system. According to Freedom Scientific support, it was probably due to group policy settings (the machine was part of an Active Directory domain).

 

The solution was to copy the desktop shortcut for JAWS to shell:startup (which is where the user’s startup programs reside).

I have fiddled with this a lot but I cannot get it to work.  “Fast startup” is off.  I have tried many different settings under the JAWS Options > Basics > Automatically Start JAWS Settings screen, but nothing works.

If you stil need to remove the display from Jaws, you'll need to go into the Add Braille Display  dialog. Then find your device in the list and uncheck it. Then follow the prompts to finish the removal.

The default combo box says that pm display is default;

How do I reset the active display so it says pmdisplay and then sees it?

Right now, jaws thinks that there is no braille display;
