I seem to remember years ago, there was a keystroke one would press for shutting down Jaws, and restarting it again, without having to unload via Jaws+f4, and reload it via the Alt+Control+j command? Is this keystroke still available, and what might it be? Thanks for refreshing my memory.

In terms of scripts, they’re already included in Jaws 2019, and 2020. IN terms of instructions, take a look at Jonathan Mosen’s “Meet me Accessibly” which he recently made available for free over at http://www.mosen.org/zoom

Asunto: JAWS with Zoom Meeting?

 

Hello All,

 

On Monday I need to be on a Zoom meeting.  I have a good microphone and have used Zoom in the past.  I need to “train” one other person who has never used ?Zoom. 

 

Are there any Zoom scripts or JAWS instructions?  Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Monica,

 

Have your friend send a blank email to the following address:

 

Jfw+subscribe@groups.io

 

I think that should work but I get a bit confused why some of these groups.io lists have he word main in their addresses and some don't.

Nowadays, If you check out the Blackboard general requirements, at least currently, they recommend using Firefox.
I do not know why this is, that is simply what they recommend.

I'm not certain but I suspect she is using IE. I will suggest she
switch to chrome for a slightly better experience.

Hi all,

 

I really have no idea what I am doing. Forgive the ignorance. I made a video recording using zoom. I uploaded the video to my YouTube channel. I got a URL for the video which sent out and have had response from. I have never done this before so truly no clue here. I followed the prompts on YouTube. 

 

I clicked  available to the public so it should be visible.

 

My youTube video is not showing on my YouTube channel.

 

Any ideas?

Thank-you very much.

First of all in relation to a guide to using Speak On with Podcasts here is the Podcast I finished only about 2 hours ago.

I think it is OK.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/88efq4jhsumskij/09Speak%20On%20and%20%20Podcasts.mp3?dl=1

Which hopefully will take you through the many different ways of accessing Podcasts with Speak ON.

 

In relation  to the User Access control – provided  the window is in focus – alt  Y should work or tabbing to the yes button and pressing enter.

I am not sure why this is not working for you. It has always worked for me in the past.

 

The only other option  is to reduce your notification levels in User Account to 0%. I can provide some instructions on this if required.

 

If Jaws speaking is disturbing  you then you can amend Jaws settings for Speak On but for  the moment

  1. Load Speak on.
  2. Press jaws key plus space – you should hear a tone.
  3. Press s and Jaws should say speech on demand and you will no longer hear Jaws interfering  and speaking at the same time in most areas of Speak ON.
  4. When you finish with Speak On repeat the key sequence and Jaws will say full speech to return you to normal.

I’ve downloaded it on to my laptop.  I just can’t figure out how to add podcasts to it. There is probably a help section somewhere however, with JAWS speaking I can’t figure out how to access the help menu.  The prompt comes up right away and if I turn off JAWS, I can’t start the program of media suite because you have to allow the computer to get it to work, with no screen reader, you can’t allow the program to load.  Even clicking alt Y, does not seem to work.  Perhaps David could offer some assistance in this matter?

For those who want a great audio book about how to use the most commonly used features of Zoom both as an attendee and as a meeting organizer, please see Jonathan Mosen's webpage for same:  Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective”

Review his overview about the book contents there and download a free copy.  There's nothing like going to the source, and no point in rehashing anything when the source material is available with a simple link activation.

Not to sound too stupid, however, does the other person you are calling need an ID # to answer or does it in fact act like making a face time call?  I’ve only used Zoom to join meetings and when someone was helping me with setting up zoom yesterday I had to type in an ID # to talk to him.  Sounds complicated I know.  I talked to him on my landline first and then he kept the landline opened and called me via zoom. However, I needed to keep Zoom opened as well, then had to punch in the ID #.  Thus if I had not been talking to him on the phone, I would had not known he was calling via Zoom as there was no alert.

Hi Jerry,

 

JAWS 2020 is not trying to use your old licence. It is just telling you that you don’t have a licence at all and that’s OK.

 

Once you have registered, you have to go back into your account you created using your user name and password you created and download and install the licence. When you click on the licence to download it, it will ask you to select if you want to run it or save it. You can go ahead and run it and it will download and install all by itself and you will be good to go.

moderated Re: jaws 2020 free authorzation help

 

Rob is correct.  After selecting which of the three products, JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText, that you wish to obtain, a file with whatever name you filled out in the form with some additional characters, with an EXE extension, will download.  Mine was named BrianVogelJAWSLicenseActivator.exe

I imagine you'd substitute Fusion or ZoomText for JAWS in the file name if one of those products was chosen.

I had uninstalled JAWS 2019 from my system before running this installer, and it took care of everything, including installing JAWS 2020.

Hi,
On the portal, after registering, You need to choose the product you wish to download, such as Jaws or Fusion.
It will download the activation file to your computer.
So look in your downloads folder for the setup file. Its something like your name Jaws authorization.exe.
Run this file to install the license and it will install Jaws.
I am not on my PC at the moment, so am writing this message from memory.
I hope it helps.
