Hi Larry & Richard,
 
Try checking what sound scheme you have running.  The keystroke is, Insert / Jaws key, Alt + S.  If it's not set on, Classic, try Classic to see if it helps.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

Not sure Richard. I hear it too, and was thinking
of exploring the dictionary manager to see if the
answer could be found in there.
But I haven't begun to explore yet.

Hi Steve,
 
It all depends of what version of Firefox and Jaws you're running.  Look at my previous posts to this one.

Hi Steve,

I'm sorry for assuming that you're running IE11, I should of asked what browser you're running from the start.  If you're running Firefox or Chrome, I don't know about other browsers, but these 2 don't have the options in the quick settings I described.

Hi Steve,
 
What version of Firefox and Jaws are you running?  Virtual Cursor options don't show in FF62 using Jaws 16, but it shows using Jaws 18 and newer.  In FF52 ESR the Virtual Cursor options do show using Jaws 16 & newer.  It doesn't hsow in Chrome no matter what version of Jaws is running.

Hi Richard,
 
I'll be damned!  I was running Jaws 16 and the Virtual Cursor options does not show in FF62, but it does show in FF52 ESR.  But, with FF62 the Virtual Cursor options show using Jaws 18 and newer.  In Chrome the Virtual Cursor options don't show no matter what version of Jaws is running.

I tried these steps, and they wouldn't work for me.

However, I turned the preview pane off in Windows Explorer using another set
of steps from another list member, and was successful.

However, my problems with smooth reading of long Microsoft Word documents
and e-mails when using the insert numpad 2 command continues, and I have now
reported it to Freedom Scientific.

I also continue to have my issue of Jaws bogging down after message 30 in a

Once again, I'm using Jaws 2019, and Microsoft Word and Outlook 2016 with

Hi, Mario. One thing, I am using JAWS 2019, I did not migrate any settings when I installed JAWS 2019, and I am using Firefox Version 63.0.1

With this configuration, with Firefox open, pressing INSERT plus V, you should find

Virtual Cursor Options

in the search suggestions.

Re: entries in jaws dictionary

because of the three levels of page numbering, I think David's right
about writing or having a script written to do what you want, and I
don't have the mind set understanding to write such a script. but I do
think it would be a fairly simple matter of using if/then/else
statements in a SayAll script.

Yes, stars do appear in the document.
With each case read,
There are generally three reporters to which the case is published.
As I read, I will see something like:
[*123] this represents the official reporter; (this is what I am most
interested in);
[**123] this represents the highest unofficial reporter;
[***123] this represents the second level unofficial reporter;

I think I tried to do what you said once,
In that,
I put an entry in like this:
Actual word: [*1 replacement word: "official reporter page"
All jaws did at that point, was to say "official reporter page" it did
not read the actual word which would have been [*123].
I expected jaws to say "official reporter page" and then the page number
which would be the actual word.

Mike, do asterisks (AKA stars) appear any where else within the
document? if not, you can make an entry with the actual word as an
asterisk and the replacement word as page number. the result should say
page number followed by the actual page number in the document when ever
JAWS reads all or if you need to edit.

No idea myself. I don't write scripts. I'm retired and only have time to

Hi guys:



I have a question regarding dictionary entries in jaws, 2019;

Here’s how it goes:

When I read court cases;

There are embedded page numbers within the case;

For instance,

A case might start on page 350 and go to 360;

Within the case, as one reads, he will find [*350), [*351),
[*352], etc up to [*360].



What I would like to do,

Is when jaws sees these page number strings, [*3, where [*3 is part
of the
string for [*351];

I wish jaws to say, “official reporter page” and then the page numbers
within the brackets;

So, when jaws sees [*354], it will say “official reporter page 354”

I tried making entries for this, but jaws will say “official reporter
page” but it won’t say the page number within the brackets;

How do I put in the wildcard within the replacement word box so that
jaws
will say “official reporter page” and yet still read the original word that
it is on;



Better yet, instead of having jaws say “official reporter page”, I
have it
make a sound and yet still read the string of original text?



My goal is since I know that there is only one star (*) between
the left
bracket and the beginning of the page number, I can make ten entries within
the dictionary,

All that either say “official page reporter” and then the original
string
saying the page number itself,

Or I can have jaws play a sound when it sees that string, and then
still
say the actual word which is the page number of the reporter that I am on at
the time.



I hope I haven’t confused anyone?



Please advise as necessary.

Hi, Steve. Which version of Firefox are you using? I am using Firefox Version 63.0.1.

 

When I press INSERT plus V, I get a search box. If I type in the first three letters, v i r, I get Virtual Cursor Options.

 

If you are in the U.S., and you’d like me to see what’s going on, you may call me.

Thank you.

I'm sorry for assuming that you're running IE11, I should of asked what browser you're running from the start.  If you're running Firefox or Chrome, I don't know about other browsers, but these 2 don't have the options in the quick settings I described.

Re: entries in jaws dictionary

mike mcglashon
 

Yes, stars do appear in the document.
With each case read,
There are generally three reporters to which the case is published.
As I read, I will see something like:
[*123] this represents the official reporter; (this is what I am most interested in);
[**123] this represents the highest unofficial reporter;
[***123] this represents the second level unofficial reporter;

I think I tried to do what you said once,
In that,
I put an entry in like this:
Actual word: [*1 replacement word: "official reporter page"
All jaws did at that point, was to say "official reporter page" it did not read the actual word which would have been [*123].
I expected jaws to say "official reporter page" and then the page number which would be the actual word.

Mike, do asterisks (AKA stars) appear any where else within the document? if not, you can make an entry with the actual word as an asterisk and the replacement word as page number. the result should say page number followed by the actual page number in the document when ever JAWS reads all or if you need to edit.

Re: How do I make the "pane" with the "resume reading" button go away in MS Word 2016?

Richard Turner
 

Hi Richard, 

I found an article to edit the registry to get rid of the “pick up where you left off” feature.

If you are comfortable editing the registry, give this a try.  I’d backup the registry first even if you are comfortable doing this.

Good luck,

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.

Have you googled it?

Re: elbraille 40 commands?

I haven't used an ElBraille, but, since it runs JAWS, you'll find that all
of the braille display commands documented in the JAWS Help for the Focus
series will work.

I would suggest familiarizing yourself with some of the commands, or taking
a list with you for use with the ElBraille.
