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.

I have different experiences. Firstly, you must be in an admin account to get it to work correctly. Secondly, when you run it from a desktop, it may give you results. If not, run it as a job and go and look at the output in an html file: I do not remember exactly where it was. Either way, you can see the results of MBSA.

Re: open book

I would say, it’s the SMA is still good on your version of open book (open book 9), that you could get the free download from the software. However, they might send you the latest version of open book if that SMA is still good.

The other question is if, there is another updated version of Open Book, would ones who purchased the 9 be able to get the newer version?  Or would they have to shell out the extra money. At least ones who purchased Window Eyes were able to migrate for free to JAWS.

I’m not aware of any – but try contacting accessibility@... – they may have a solution to your problem. I would suggest describing more precisely what the problem is (rather than “scripts are needed”, state what the user’s actual difficulty is with the WebEx client).

 

I use WebEx here for audio calls, without any need for scripts, but not the text chat interface.

You can set a shortcut on your desktop if you would rather.

Then, from any other device you can log in to OneDrive and access your files.

JAWS 2018 announces webpage URL for page you're leaving. Why?

 

Every time my latest client and I are transitioning from one webpage to another where he has entered a new URL in the address bar by hand we consistently have JAWS 2018 announcing the URL of the page we're on before it announces the one we're navigating to.

This behavior annoys and confuses him and does the same for me.  I cannot understand the rationale for doing this.

I am wondering if this is something that is either wrong with his JAWS 2018 installation, if anyone else gets this behavior, and if it can be configured through a setting I just don't know about.  I'd like JAWS to announce the URL of the page that's currently being transitioned to without ever hearing the URL of the one being left behind.

Re: JAWS keeps speaking the progress of streams

Marty Hutchings
 

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 again 3 times til you hear Progress bar spoken and hit the Space bar. You will hear "Progress bar silent" then hit Enter. Jaws will no longer speak any progress bars.

I have two ideas, but someone else may know others. First you can press the

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.

Re: Chrome and passwords

 

Bill,

        I am with both you, and Vlad, in certain regards.

        On "the Vlad side" is the rock solid and most basic computer security principle:   As soon as you do not have physical security over your hardware virtually nothing else matters and if you do have physical security over your hardware it prevents close to 100% of the most common compromises.

        On the "your side" there are many among us who, while we do have physical security over our hardware, also leave it running 24/7 unless we wish to force a restart.  It is always possible (not probable, but possible) that someone could break in to the location where the computer is kept and is running.  Why give them, or anyone to whom they might hand off a stolen computer, easy access to all your accounts.

         I've said it before, and I'll say it again:   Passwords are, ideally, meant to be stored in one and only one place - the password owner's brain.  Since many of us can not meet that ideal, particularly as years and numbers of passwords increase, the second option is to use a password manager that requires you to enter a password you can be sure you will remember to store all others.

          The second option is a lot safer than having a web browser, any web browser, remember login credentials.  These days most password managers will also allow you to fire up the site and auto-enter the credentials they have stored directly from within the manager, where they're locked safely away again as soon as you close it.

           I can find no reason, other than convenience, to ever have a web browser remember important login credentials (and by that I mean username and password).  If those login credentials are for anything important they simply should not be remembered by a web browser.  Having one remember your login credentials for your local newspaper's comment section, say, is a completely different thing than having it remember them for your bank account or credit card.

           For certain things, even having a browser remember nothing but the login ID is a very bad idea.

Re: Chrome and passwords

Vlad Dragomir
 

Hello,

Sorry for chiming in here. I would simply like to try and disipate a little bit this feeling of so-called insecure environment. Dear friends, I've been using Chrome for at least two years, it saved all my passwords, and I never had the smallest problem. Commons sense is your best friend. You need a strong GMail password, make sure that no one can guess it. Apart from that, why would you let anyone use your computer, it's yours, you only need to make that clear. And if you let someone use it, it's someone you trust, not the first stranger you meet on a street. Definitely, it is up to the original poster to decide, I would personally advise against paranoia though. Don't allow your envious work colleague to use your computer, that's all you need to do! *smiles*

Best regards,

Vlad.

Re: JAWS 2019 Beta Download Links + What's New + Beta Report Form Link

Mário Navarro
 


thanks friend.

good work.

cheers.


Às 15:14 de 18/09/2018, Mike B. escreveu:
Hi All,
 
All the links are below plus what's new in this version.
 
 
 JAWS 2019 Beta Report Form:
 
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
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
 
Do I need to download the 64-bit or 32-bit version of software?
list of 4 items
1. Press WINDOWS Key+R to open the Run dialog box.
2. Type "c:" without the quotes and then press ENTER to display the contents of your C drive.
3.  Press the letter P until you reach the "Program Files" folder, and then press P once more.
 If you have 64-bit Windows, you have two folders: one named "Program Files" and another named "Program Files (x86)."
 If you have 32-bit Windows, you only have one folder named "Program Files."
4. Please select the appropriate 64-bit or 32-bit version to run on your system.

The layered keystroke you describe I don't think was available yet in Jaws 14, but I am not entirely certain since I used Jaws 14 a very long time ago, even have to think, in the fall of 2017 Jaws 2018 came out, so Jaws 18 was in 2016, Jaws 17 in 2015 so Jaws 14 would have been released in the fall of 2012. There would have been a keystroke to mute Jaws I think, just not sure if it was the layered keystroke or just Jaws Key+S, also, does the time elapsed still speak if you move focus away from the browser window?

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!

Debby

Subject: JAWS keeps speaking the progress of streams

Hello everyone:

On my HP laptop, I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 14. When I am listening to streamed audio from any of the radio stations on the BBc web site, JAWS keeps announcing the elapsed time of any streamd audio I am listening too.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can stop JAWS from doing this.

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Chrome and passwords

Bill White
 

Hi, Brian. This is what I found on Google about Chrome. I’m not excessively security cautious, but, even to me, this is pretty scary.

 

You might want to think twice before you let someone borrow your computer.

The most obvious risk of allowing someone else access to your desktop is that they can impersonate you, using any app where you’re already signed in. They could send prank messages using your default email client, or profess your undying love for Justin Bieber using your logged-in Twitter account.

That’s annoying, but far from fatal.

But the situation becomes considerably worse if you use Google Chrome to save and sync passwords for easy logins at your favorite websites. An intruder who has unrestricted access to your computer for even a minute can view and copy all of your saved passwords just by visiting an easy-to-remember settings page: chrome://settings/passwords.

That link opens the local copy of your saved password cache, which is synchronized to every machine where you sign in with your Google account.

And the funny thing is, anyone who visits that page can see the plaintext version of every saved password just by clicking a button.

The saved password list shows the web address, username, and password for each saved set of credentials. Initially, the saved password is displayed as a row of asterisks. But if you click the masked password, you see a “Show” button that you can click to immediately display the saved password.

Sharon,

           If you've never used Chrome it is impossible that Chrome has saved passwords.

           If you wish to use Chrome, but also wish that it never, ever even offer to remember passwords, then the first time you fire it up go to the Passwords settings and flip that toggle for offering to remember passwords to off.

           The logistics of where the setting is differs, but this is true of every modern browser.  They all can remember passwords, you can force them not to do so, and if you did save some earlier and change your mind these can be deleted.

Re: Chrome and passwords

So if I do not want Chrome to save passwords . . .

I just wonder if any have been saved on the site if I’ve never used Chrome.

Talk about confusing.

Sharon,

           Yes.  When you bring up the Chrome Passwords page there is a section with the Saved Passwords list (by site) and a Never Saved section (also arranged by site).

           I cannot tell you any more than that, as I absolutely never allow any browser to save passwords.

Bill,

           I do not know what the underlying architecture is.  I infer, from what the settings now read, that the actual password storage itself is probably cloud-based, but there is no way I can be 100% certain of that.  These things get changed at the will of the developers, and since they're stored in encrypted form I wouldn't recognize them easily if they are stored locally.
