Sorry, I can’t find the owner of this list so do not know how to send this privately.  I have an aversion to people who put religious tags at the end of their message such as Christ be with you etcetera.  A lot of atrocities have be done in the name of Christianity. One person  in particular could not hold down a job or a relationship so joined a convent. She admitted to getting off on the looks she got from the general public when in her habit with me and my guide dog.  She gets off on being in the lime light to the point of neglecting her own mother unless it suits her purpose. Any negative publicity on the news is just propaganda according to her. This is not indicative of all nuns as another one lived up to how a nun should be,  thus, I would humbly request that religious references be deleted from tag lines. After all, some worship the devil, would others like it if they put in their tag line, “The devil is the only leader for this world.”

Hi to all

Very close to Christmas, a new Leasey update is available. This will need to be downloaded from our website and installed over the top of the existing version due to the additional files involved.

Before I get to what has changed in this update, please bare in mind that we are very close to Christmas now. We are closed as of tomorrow, 21 December. During that time, technical support is given on a limited basis with the most urgent queries being dealt with as an absolute priority. If you think you may have problems installing the update, you may want to wait until the new year. I do not believe this update is absolutely critical to have.

Any bug reports will be attended to in the new year.

If you previously have been provided with a manual activation file, be sure you know where it is located first before you go ahead and install the new update, so that you can apply it after the event.

The new version is available at

www.hartgen.org/leaseydemo

Note that links to the previous release are also included in the event that anyone needs to drop back to an older version.

We would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and new year and thank you for your support of our company during 2018!

Changes.

Progress Bars are generally given in percentage terms to advise a user of the progress of an event which is taking place in Windows. This could be the installation of a program, but it could also be the downloading of a file from the internet, or perhaps copying a large folder from one storage location to another.

JAWS does give a good indicator as to the percentage of most progress bars. However, Leasey does have a sound scheme, (activated by pressing the Leasey Key then letter O). This has three states: Off, which means speech only. Sounds On, which is self-explanatory, and Sounds with Speech, where you hear both the sounds and the speech; a tutorial mode if you will. The Sounds Scheme allows sounds to represent specific events rather than speech output, for example when a web page loads or when text is being highlighted or selected.

Assuming the Sounds Scheme is enabled, you will hear tones which represent 5 percent increments, with the lowest tone representing 5 percent and the highest 100 percent.

During other percentage increments, you will hear a soft tick sound. While we could have just stopped at the 20 tones, we wanted users to know that progress was occurring at the other percentage points in a discrete way. For example, if a large video file is being copied from an iPhone to a computer, this can take several  minutes. The tick sounds will indicate that things are progressing, but if there is a pause in the tick sounds, this should let you know that no further progress is being made.

Naturally, we want users to learn what the sounds represent, so there is a tutorial mode which plays the tones from lowest to highest, together with the soft tick. This is activated by pressing Leasey Key then Windows+P.

Two further notes. There is a setting within JAWS to change the frequency of the progress indicator reports. This is honoured by the Sounds Scheme.

Secondly, in the case of downloading files using Google Chrome, there is no progress bar as such. But with Leasey, you will hear a sound to indicate that a file is downloading, and there is also a mechanism by which you can ascertain the amount of a file which has been downloaded together with the total size of the potential download. This is activated by pressing Leasey Key then Windows+P.

This release of Leasey will also allow you to move to the first or last instance of most web page elements. JAWS already contains the ability to move to the next or previous instance of an element, but to improve productivity, it may be helpful to move to the first and last of these.

For example, when you browse to a new web page, it is likely that JAWS will attempt to set focus to the start of the non-linked text. This means that if you wish to reach the first instance of a Heading or other element, you need to press Control+Home to move to the top of the page, and then press letter H. To say again, you can very quickly move to the first Heading with a keystroke using the new version of Leasey.

Press the Left Bracket key, next to letter P, followed by a quick navigation key such as H, to move to the first instance of an element.

Press the Right Bracket Key, followed by a quick navigation key, to move to the last instance of an element.

In Microsoft Word, there are now keystrokes to move to the first, last, next or previous spelling or grammatical error, even if the Quick Navigation keys are not enabled. This will assist in moving through a document to check spelling.

These are:

Next spelling error, alt+Semicolon.

Previous spelling error, alt+apostrophe.

First spelling error, alt+colon.

Last spelling error, alt+At sign.

Next Grammatical error, alt+Left Bracket

Previous Grammatical error, alt+Right  Bracket.

First Grammatical error, alt+Left Brace Bracket.

Last Grammatical error, alt+Right Brace Bracket.

When the keystrokes are pressed to shut down or restart the computer, a message is spoken advising this is going to take place.

In iTunes, new keystrokes have been added to skip forward and back through an item which is playing, such as a music track. These ensure that the response is far quicker and more reliable.

Press F12 to skip forward and F11 to skip back.

Hopefully, a problem has been corrected in the Skype 8 access so as to move to the history list in Text Chat when a group conversation is in progress.

Other improvements include keyboard responsiveness in many areas and copying files and folders using LeaseyTags.

Two further notes. There is a setting within JAWS to change the frequency of the progress indicator reports. This is honoured by the Sounds Scheme.

 

Secondly, in the case of downloading files using Google Chrome, there is no progress bar as such. But with Leasey, you will hear a sound to indicate that a file is downloading, and there is also a mechanism by which you can ascertain the amount of a file which has been downloaded together with the total size of the potential download. This is activated by pressing Leasey Key then Windows+P.

 

This release of Leasey will also allow you to move to the first or last instance of most web page elements. JAWS already contains the ability to move to the next or previous instance of an element, but to improve productivity, it may be helpful to move to the first and last of these.

 

For example, when you browse to a new web page, it is likely that JAWS will attempt to set focus to the start of the non-linked text. This means that if you wish to reach the first instance of a Heading or other element, you need to press Control+Home to move to the top of the page, and then press letter H. To say again, you can very quickly move to the first Heading with a keystroke using the new version of Leasey.

Press the Left Bracket key, next to letter P, followed by a quick navigation key such as H, to move to the first instance of an element.

Press the Right Bracket Key, followed by a quick navigation key, to move to the last instance of an element.

 

In Microsoft Word, there are now keystrokes to move to the first, last, next or previous spelling or grammatical error, even if the Quick Navigation keys are not enabled. This will assist in moving through a document to check spelling.

These are:

Next spelling error, alt+Semicolon.

Previous spelling error, alt+apostrophe.

First spelling error, alt+colon.

Last spelling error, alt+At sign.

Next Grammatical error, alt+Left Bracket.

Previous Grammatical error, alt+Right  Bracket.

First Grammatical error, alt+Left Brace Bracket.

Last Grammatical error, alt+Right Brace Bracket.

 

When the keystrokes are pressed to shut down or restart the computer, a message is spoken advising this is going to take place.

 

In iTunes, new keystrokes have been added to skip forward and back through an item which is playing, such as a music track. These ensure that the response is far quicker and more reliable.

Press F12 to skip forward and F11 to skip back.

 

Hopefully, a problem has been corrected in the Skype 8 access so as to move to the history list in Text Chat when a group conversation is in progress.

 

Other improvements include keyboard responsiveness in many areas and copying files and folders using LeaseyTags.

Re: weird windows10 & jaws 2019 problem please help!!!

John Martyn
 

The only thing I can suggest is to check the video card driver. You can actually roll back the driver in windows 10. You can do this by going to Cortana and type in device manager arrow down to the video card section after you press tab expand the selection, and hit enter on it or select properties from the menu then go to the driver tab and roll back. Hope this helps, Johnny The reason is because perhaps the highlights settings are being tracked differently in the driver foundation kit.

Hi all!
I have just been upgraded to windows10 at work.  I am using Jaws 2019 and am having serious problems with the windows10 system at work.  I will outline the problems, and then so we don’t get repeats tell you what we have done to date.
When I hit the windows key to get the searchbox my computer announces cortana.  I start to type in what I want to search for, but I can not hear any of the results.  I’ve tried the jaws cursor and everything.  The search feature is working correctly at least the sighted folks who have watched say it is.
I’ve talked to freedom scientific,  sorry can’t get use to the new name.
And have done the following
Uninstalled jaws and did a complete reinstall.
2. Tried a repair.
3. Check permissions on the freedom scientific folder inside the c:\program files directory structure.
4. my video card driver was 14 months old and there was an updated driver from a month ago. Upgraded it.
And no luck the searchbox still acts the same.
And yes, jaws was installed with a full admin account. And this problem occurs in both the full admin account  as well as the user accounts. Anyways, I looking for suggestions of things to have the folks who put together the corporate windows10 built as to things to check.  Our build is pretty locked down.
Thanks all.
Have a good day.

Excel Online

Steve Griffiths
 


I'm supporting a JAWS 18 user who has to edit a spreadsheet using Excel Online, the web-based version of Excel. The Freedom Scientific webinar on Office 365 that covers Excel Online is very useful, but we're having a couple of issues that aren't covered in that webinar.

 

One is that there are multiple people editing the spreadsheet at the same time, and whenever my client arrows around the spreadsheet, JAWS keeps saying Alert! with each press of an arrow key. I got round this by using Audacity to create an empty WAV file, then using the JAWS dictionary to substitute this WAV file for the word Alert followed by an exclamation mark. But I wonder if there is a more elegant way to stop the announcements.

 

The second issue is that most of the team open the spreadsheet and minimise it when they start work, and then go to it when they want to edit. My client has tried this but finds that, even when she minimises the spreadsheet and is working on another application, JAWS announces all the edits anyone else makes to the sheet. One workaround is to close the spreadsheet when she's not actually editing it, but she has to edit it many times a day and opening it every time takes a lot longer than just Alt-Tabbing to it.

 

Is anyone else using Excel Online with multiple people editing the same document? Do you also get the above issues, and if so, how do you deal with them?

 

Thanks,

Steve

For Users of JAWS Fwd: [Leasey] Our Christmas Gift to Leasey Users. Version 4.02 Build 5 is Available!

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Brian Hartgen released a new update to Leasey, which is a third-party addon which provides additional functionality to the JAWS screen reader. One feature which was added was something which I requested regarding spell checking within Word. This newest update gives you specific hotkeys to move the cursor to the next or previous misspelled word and to the next or previous grammatical error. JAWS can currently do this but the virtual cursor needs to be enabled first. Once the cursor is at the word you wish to edit you must then turn the virtual cursor off before you can begin editing. Window-Eyes contained the ability to move the cursor to the next or previous error without first needing to toggle browse mode on and off and I never understood why JAWS never offered such a feature. I requested the feature addition to Brian and it is now added!

Another new feature is the option of having ascending tones to indicate progress bar announcements. This is similar to what NVDA offers and to what Window-Eyes offered but the feature has been somewhat enhanced with some additional functionality. This was another feature I requested/see the below message for more details.

Hi to all

 

Very close to Christmas, a new Leasey update is available. This will need to be downloaded from our website and installed over the top of the existing version due to the additional files involved.

 

Before I get to what has changed in this update, please bare in mind that we are very close to Christmas now. We are closed as of tomorrow, 21 December. During that time, technical support is given on a limited basis with the most urgent queries being dealt with as an absolute priority. If you think you may have problems installing the update, you may want to wait until the new year. I do not believe this update is absolutely critical to have.

Any bug reports will be attended to in the new year.

 

If you previously have been provided with a manual activation file, be sure you know where it is located first before you go ahead and install the new update, so that you can apply it after the event.

 

The new version is available at

www.hartgen.org/leaseydemo

 

Note that links to the previous release are also included in the event that anyone needs to drop back to an older version.

 

We would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and new year and thank you for your support of our company during 2018!

 

Changes.

 

Progress Bars are generally given in percentage terms to advise a user of the progress of an event which is taking place in Windows. This could be the installation of a program, but it could also be the downloading of a file from the internet, or perhaps copying a large folder from one storage location to another.

 

JAWS does give a good indicator as to the percentage of most progress bars. However, Leasey does have a sound scheme, (activated by pressing the Leasey Key then letter O). This has three states: Off, which means speech only. Sounds On, which is self-explanatory, and Sounds with Speech, where you hear both the sounds and the speech; a tutorial mode if you will. The Sounds Scheme allows sounds to represent specific events rather than speech output, for example when a web page loads or when text is being highlighted or selected.

 

Assuming the Sounds Scheme is enabled, you will hear tones which represent 5 percent increments, with the lowest tone representing 5 percent and the highest 100 percent.

During other percentage increments, you will hear a soft tick sound. While we could have just stopped at the 20 tones, we wanted users to know that progress was occurring at the other percentage points in a discrete way. For example, if a large video file is being copied from an iPhone to a computer, this can take several  minutes. The tick sounds will indicate that things are progressing, but if there is a pause in the tick sounds, this should let you know that no further progress is being made.

 

Naturally, we want users to learn what the sounds represent, so there is a tutorial mode which plays the tones from lowest to highest, together with the soft tick. This is activated by pressing Leasey Key then Windows+P.

 

Two further notes. There is a setting within JAWS to change the frequency of the progress indicator reports. This is honoured by the Sounds Scheme.

But with Leasey, you will hear a sound to indicate that a file is downloading, and there is also a mechanism by which you can ascertain the amount of a file which has been downloaded together with the total size of the potential download.

This release of Leasey will also allow you to move to the first or last instance of most web page elements. JAWS already contains the ability to move to the next or previous instance of an element, but to improve productivity, it may be helpful to move to the first and last of these.

Have you tried Narrator? If not, see if you encounter the same problem with the search box using Narrator instead of JAWS. Also, which build of Windows 10 are you running? If it is 1809, there have been widespread problems reported with this build, which MS supposedly recalled and is now rolling out again. If Freedom Scientific can't help. you might want to call the Microsoft Accessibility helpline at 800-936-5900 and see whether they can help you resolve the problem.
