Guess you missed this as it came up a couple of times in the last few weeks 😊

1. Go to Preferences either via the menu or by pressing Control + K

2. Type “S” until you get to “Security (Enhanced) or arrow down the list until you find it

3. Tab once and you hear “Enable Protected Mode at startup”, in your case this is most likely checked.

4. Press the spacebar to uncheck it, tab to OK (in this case Shift + Tab gets you there faster) and activate it.

5. Close Acrobat Reader DC and reopen a PDF and all will be well. It seems like a recent update to Acrobat Reader DC has checked this option even if it was previously unchecked.

Hi,

I'm currently running JAWS 2019 latest edition and Windows 10 Version 10.0.17763 and AdobeDC Version: 19.12.20034.328841

All PDF document that I try and open via AdobeDC either by double clicking the file from within a folder or as an e-mail attachment or from the File Open menu in AdobeDC are no longer read by JAWS. I've checked the Preferences which are laid out differently to what I can remember the last time I was in there in AdobeDC and it would appear everything is switched on correctly. when I look at the About item in Help, I can see that AdobeDC knows I'm running JAWS.

When the files open, they don't do the usual preparing for reading and no progress display is shown on the screen. The PDF files are not images and I can OCR them through convenient OCR.

What am I missing? Any hints gladly accepted before I try a full reinstall of AdobeDC.

Have a great day.

Mark

How to read tool tip with Jaws

Swati Sinha
 

Hi all,
As the subject line suggests, I would like to know how to read tooltip
of a control with the help of jaws 2019.
In previous versions, one can enable tooltip from quick settings and
jaws was good to go.
But in the latest version 2019, I am unable to find it in the settings.
Please help.

JAWS and iCloud

Marty Hutchings
 

When is JAWS going to work with iCloud?  I am using Windows 7 and JAWS 18 and now when iCloud pops up in the middle of what I am working on and the screen goes mute, it is very aggravating.  How do I get iCloud to stop popping up.  I keep on hitting the Cancel button when I can find it, but 5 minutes later, there it is again.

Re: google hangouts with jaws 19

Jay <jcoffin@...>
 

Hi.

 

I find if you have forms mode set to manual, then navigate to where you want to  go that works just fine. As for getting the app to start so you can sign in, the best way is to switch on touch navigation, press right arrow until you hear google hangouts, then press enter.  then press the plus key on the numpad to switch back to pc mode, then type your username and password to log in. When you get to the main hangouts window press c until you hear conversations list box, then press enter. You can navigate through your list of conversations by pressing either up or down arrow keys. When you hear the conversation you want, press enter and you will be taken to that particular conversation. When you want to switch conversations, as far as I am aware there is no particular way to do this while keeping the active conversation open, so press escape to close that conversation window, then repeat the  steps to get to the new conversation you want to view.  Press c to get to the conversations list box, press enter and arrow to the conversation you want then press enter. Hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions, feel free to write back.

 

Jay.

William,

         I have been playing with the Hangouts App using NVDA with a combination of traditional and object navigation, the latter of which is the equivalent of the touch cursor in JAWS if memory is serving.   I still don't have the hang of it entirely, but I do know that once I get to the conversations list I have to change mode to move "person by person" or "conversation by conversation" down that list.  But right now, once I transition to the actual messages list for a conversation I can get them to read, but I cannot seem to transition back to the conversations list for love nor money.

          Someone who uses JAWS with the Hangouts App will need to speak to the issues with JAWS and the App and navigating it directly.

Re: google hangouts with jaws 19

Hi Brian,

I have installed the plugin for google chrome.

Jaws is no speaking the incomming tekst of a new message so this is a good step forwards.

It would be nice if I can find a kind of list where the history of the incomming messages is shown.

And it would be great if i could reply (and start a new conversation from there.

Thx in advance,

Kind regards,

William Windels

Hi!

 

I am using Windows 7, Jaws 2019 and Firefox - all with the latest updates.  In firefox, I already have installed the plug-in that makes a sound when a download is *completed*.  However, I wish I could have some sort of a progress announcement dialog *as the download is happening* too.  Can that be done?

Re: scrolling with Jaws cursor

David Moore
 

Hi!

The JAWS cursor moves the mouse pointer, and you can not scroll the mouse pointer.

What a sighted person does, and we have to do the same, is to scroll the web page.

Just press page up and page down to scroll the web page, and you will be able to read more text with the JAWS cursor.

The JAWS cursor is restricted to the current screen, because that is the way the mouse pointer is!

Could someone tell me how to get the Jaws cursor to scroll to the next page while on the Internet. The text I am trying to read will not read with the PC cursor so I route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor to read it but I get to the bottom of the                 page and I can't get the Jaws cursor to go to the next page or screen.  Thanks, Tom

Re: Please help me learn how to paste scripts into JAWS 19 on Windows 10

muhammadBilal Arshad
 

its pretty much simple. do the following:
1. press windows+r to open up the run dialogue box and type there exactly:
%appdata%
2. file explorer will open browse to:
freedomscientific\jaws\jawsVersion(e.g2019)\settings\language(e.g enu)
3. paste there.
note: for current user account only.


Re: Please help me learn how to paste scripts into JAWS 19 on Windows 10

Steve Matzura
 

Scripts go here:


%AppData%\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\xxx\Settings\lll


You can start by copying all the files belonging to the script(s) to the clipboard in the usual way, then open the Run dialog with Windows Key plus R, type appdata, and press ENTER. After that,just choose the cited directories as you go, and paste your script(s) in the language-specific directory. Close the windows when you're done with them.


where 'xxx' is the version of JAWS in which you want to use the scripts,and 'lll' is your local language designation, e.g., enu.


Been that way forever, regardless of Windows version.
