Hi,Yes, a bit annoying, but helpful to me as it lets me know that there are possible addresses being displayed based on letters that I have typed.  I just arrow down to the one that I need and hit enter.

Subject: Anoying Clicking Noise When Entering E-mail Address Into The "To" Field In Outlook 2016

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, when in Outlook 2016 on this Windows 10 computer, I get an anoying clicking sound whenever I try to enter an address into the “to” field of an Outlook e-mail message.

 

I believe this is a Jaws issue, since the sound resembles the clicking sound you get when in the manual forms field mode on internet web sites.

 

Does anyone know how I can get rid of this clicking sound in Outlook e-mail.  I don’t find it to be necessary, and it is rather anoying.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2018.

 

Thank you!

If anybody has the file

Filedir could they send me a link to the file.

 

I went to the grabbag site and tried to download the file and the file would start to download and then would stop.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

 


Re: 2 JAWS problems

JM Casey
 

When my former workplace switched over to Office 2016 I did notice huge lag times in Outlook. Getting more ram for my workstation did seem to help. It seems ridiculous that an e-mail programme coupled with a screen-reader should need so much ram to operate efficiently, but there you go. If you have 4gb (the minimum to run Windows 10, if I remember right), consider upgrading to 8, or even 16.

As for the Word issue -- might be a long shot, but what is your view set to?

Hi All,

I use JAWS 2018, Win 10. The 2 problems are:
1. In Word, I use Word 10 because 16 has some bugs, it says sometimes:
"use your reading keys to read the text." and then JAWS starts acting sporadically. It does not delete words when I press back space and becomes generally unresponsive. Only solution is turning JAWS off and on. This keeps happening every few minutes.
2. In Outlook 16, when writing emails, there is a noticeable lag in the responsiveness of JAWS. it takes a minute to type down what I say and so on. I have to write my mails in notepad and then copy-paste them. Thoughts?

Best,
Rahul

Re: Emil program works with Jaws 2019

However, even though WLM works with Windows 10, isn't it true that WLM and Outlook Express must be reinstalled every time Windows 10 undergoes a major update?

Re: Emil program works with Jaws 2019

 

You can use the Windows Mail app, between Outlook (still the best in my opinion) and Thunderbird there really isn't that much else apart from Windows 10 Mail. I believe a few people still use Eudora and Opera Mail is another option although I never heard anybody talking about that one and how well it works with a screenreader.

Where do I turn off list notification?

Ann Byrne
 

Where do I turn off the notifications in JAWS (2019) that say "list of 6 items" and 'end of list"/ I found it once, then had to reinstall JAWS and I can't for the life of me find it again.

Thanks.

Re: OneNote/Evernote/Google Keep accessibility?

Steve Matzura
 

Mike Smith of the "Mike Tech Show" podcast has been saying that Evernote looks to be on its way out. They apparently laid off about fifteen percent of their employees late last year and were suffering that from which all companies suffer who give their stuff away--nobody wants to pay for it. While I think the idea behind Evernote is excellent, just beware that they may very well be on their way down and out.

Re: 2 JAWS problems

I am using Office 365 with Jaws 2018 and do not have either of those issues. I've never had anything like the Word issue you are talking about.
There are odd pauses with Outlook, but it isn't that often.
I wish I had a suggestion that might help.
How much RAM do you have and what processor does your computer have?

Re: OneNote/Evernote/Google Keep accessibility?

 

I haven't used OneNote in a while, but I believe accessibility isn't too bad now with Jaws 2019. I never did have much luck with Evernote and I haven't tried the Google solution.

Re: FCC Web site and Jaws

 

Also confirmed, I use Chrome and Jaws 2019 and pressing either enter or spacebar on any of the questions/links which all have that "black square" in front of them and are followed by the word "expand and contract" and then arrowing down read all answers. Once or twice when it didn't doing a page refresh with Jaws Kay + Escape solved the problem and the answer was then displayed. I tried this with at least 20 of them and it all worked just fine.

Re: Mirroring mail on Outlook and Gmail

 

Marianne,

            Make sure the e-mail is configured as IMAP in Outlook, not POP.  Given the way Gmail works, there might be other factors involved, too.  It would be useful to know what shows up if you log in to Gmail webmail, go to Settings, Settings choice, Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab, then the POP download and IMAP access settings.

Re: FCC Web site and Jaws

Gerald Levy
 


I can't figure out how to access the answers on this site with JAWS , either.  But there is probably nothing you can do about it because FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has demonstrated by his words and actions that he is an enemy of consumers and a friend of big business.  Just the other day, he boasted that he was happy that he repealed net neutrality.  So if you contact the FCC to let them know that their site is not accessible, you will probably get nowhere, even though by law, it must be made accessible under the provisions of the ADA.  Besides, most FCC employees have been furloughed because of the government shutdown, which the President has asserted could last a very long time, so there probably isn't anyone you could contact, anyway, until the shutdown is over.
