Subject: Using JAWS 2019 with Skype 8.

 

Hello List,

 

To my dismay, when I went to use Skype yesterday, I was required to update.  I thought Microsoft had agreed to continue to allow Skype 7, but apparently that was not correct.  I am having lots of problems with Skype 8, and was hoping someone has a JAWS user guide?

 

Sincerely,

jfw and governmentjobs.com

Jed Barton <jedbarton@...>
 

Hey guys,

OK, so something must be going on with the government jobs.com
website. I am trying to fill out an app. So most of it i can fill
out. However, in the work experience section, it wants you to select
the country where you worked. So i'm trying to select the US from the
dropdown. Jaws isn't happy with the dropdown. It tells me press up
and down arrow to navigate. I press the down arrow, and it crawls
through the page, where i have to select from over 200 countries. So
i hit U for US, and it doesn't go there. Any ideas on what to do? I
tried pressing shift down arrow, and it said list box, then nothing.
I have to get this application filled out. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jed


Re: Why does JAWS only read 1st letter of NAV item?

Mohith BP
 

Hi,

This wissuewas noted in earlier versions of JAWS such as 16.
Usually properly marked up role menu / menubar turns the forms mode on
while navigating with the tab key.
In case the forms mode is not turned on then JAWS reads only the first letters.
However this issue is resolved in newer versions.

Thanks & Regards,
Mohith B. P.

This is certainly not the default behavior. Could you provide some
additional specific information which will give us the opportunity to try
and duplicate the problem.


1. Which version of JAWS are you using?

2. Which speech synthesizer are you using? If it's one of the Nuance voices,
which voice are you using?

3. Which version of Windows are you running?

4. In which program do you notice the behavior occurring?

5. Which version of the program are you running?

6. Does this occur on a specific Web site? Does it occur on all or most Web

Jaws key question

David Pearson
 

Howdy all:

Using a half-kwerty keyboard as can only type with one hand, and was exploring possibility of "sticking" my insert key to make the virtual pc cursor feature toggle on/off easier as typing some letterz requires depressing spacebar such as needing to depress it at same time as a / key to type the letter z(as well as the insert/Jaws) and this entire set of presses would be hard to execute with my digits-would need a couple more of them to accomplish this.

Am told that the Caps lock key does "stick, but would require re-mapping of keyboard to pc layout(currently using desktop pc and have become somewhat familiar/comfortable with this for most of my needs.

Was exploring possibility of using either the insert/Caps lock key mainly to toggle the virtual pc cursor feature on/off to navigate complete Youtube keyboard controls but concerned that switch to laptop key layout may affect my other keyboard key configuration. Is this a valid concern?

I guess that what this novel boils down to is this:

Is the sticky feature keyboardor Jaws(using latest version) dependent?

Most sincerely,



David S. Pearson

Perhaps uninstall Acrobat DC and reinstall it.

Hi all,
Following Jed's question, I would like to pose a similar problem. For some reason, when I open a pdf file in Acrobat DC on my lenovo, it comes up as "blank", or so jaws tells, with neither the display, nor jaws actually reading the text. This happens on all pdfs, so there's no question of affecting just scanned files. Running jaws2018, latest win10, and latest acrobat dc. If I use aby to convert it into word, it works fine, but this is not always my best bet, if I want to do something quickly. I understand someone else has raised this in the past, but would be grateful for any experience that solved this. I have settings in "infer reading order."
Kindest regards, Takis

Best way to fill out PDF files

James Lockwood <lockwoodnd@...>
 

I am a professional in the legal field and I have to fill out legal PDF documents. What is the best way to read PDF documents that are fillable PDF in an accurate manner? When I use Adobe and jaws the form is read out loud but the boxes to fill-in are out of order with the labels. Does anyone have a way to accurately read PDF files and fill them out correctly? Perhaps the iPhone?


Re: Adobe Acrobat DC Problem

Thanks for the link, Bill.

 

I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat DC and re-installed, and now all works again.

 

Have saved the executable file if it is needed again in the future.

Subject: Adobe Acrobat DC Problem

 

Hello, everyone.

 

For some reason, Adobe Acrobat DC is suddenly no longer reading PDF documents on my new Windows 10 computer.

 

The same documents are being read with no problem on my older Windows 7 machine.

 

Both computers are using the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

I’m wondering if I need to un-install, and re-install Adobe Acrobat DC on this new Windows 10 computer.

 

If so, can someone give me a legitimate link via which I can get the program.

 

Or, are there other things anyone would suggest I check before taking this step?

 

Thanks very much.

Re: couple of questions for list

 

I just checked and when I go to the Jaws Settings Centre and Key labels NumPad 0/Insert is set to speak, but if you press it (the Jaws key) by itself it says nothing and I don't recall that it ever has said anything. It's simply a modifier key like Shift, Alt or Control and none of them say anything if pressed by themselves.

Re: unable to make jaws read a file RE: can't save a pdf file

 

I assume the are image PDF's and you would need to use Jaws OCR on them to recognize the text.
Open one of them and press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by O and D and see what happens.

Re: couple of questions for list

using JAWS 2018... I know it's not the latest version, but I don't think
it would behave any differently..., pressing the JAWSKey or insert,
alone or in combination with another key is not announced when pressed.
curiously, when key describer mode, pressing insert with another key is
announced as the JAWSKey plus the other key that was pressed.
