Re: Does anyone know of a Dictionary compatible with JAWS?

 

I've always liked the onelook.com multi-dictionary search.  Since it's a webpage and the results are links to the definitions in various dictionaries it works reasonably well with screen readers, though some of the online dictionaries themselves have more (or less) accessibility friendly pages.  You quickly figure out which one or ones are your "go to"s.

Re: Web Browser Accessibility And A Keyboard Shortcut Related Questions And Vocalizer Expressive

 

I suggest you simply download Chrome and give it a try, it's free after all and for the most part you'll find it much the same as IE, all the same quick nav keys work and you can arrow down the page and Jaws will read it with the virtual cursor just as IE. You may find a few sites where if Chrome doesn't read certain information going back to IE will work and that's perfectly fine as IE won't go away any time soon.

Hi there everyone. My name is Owais and I'm new to this list have
some questions regarding the topics mentioned in the Subject Line. I
don't have Jaws but will be getting it quite soon. Last time I tried
Jaws with Internet Explorer I loved it. Never have tried it with
Firefox or Chrome. My prefered Browser that I've used the most is
Chrome. What's the level of accessibility Jaws has with Chrome? When I
tried Jaws with Internet Explorer I found that there's a Keystroke
which is Insert+F7 to bring up the list of links. Is this shortcut for
Ie only or is it for other Browsers as well? Lastly I heard that in
Jaws 18 Freedom Scientific added a new Vocalizer. I heard it has a lot
of Apple Voices. If that's true does it have Alex from iOs. I kind of
found Microsoft David similar to Alex but it's quite laggy is what I find.
Sincerely,

And why is the subscribed check box not checked and when I try to check that with space bar in jaws, does not do that. Any ideas.

In the past couple of days Jaws is not speaking the email address as I type
it into Outlook 2016.

For example, if I was sending an email to myself, I would start typing my
name into the to field. I would press the letter r and Jaws would say
randymeyer@..., I could arrow down to hear other email addresses
that started with r as well. If I typed RA I could arrow down through a
list of email addresses that started with RA. Now when I type R I hear
nothing. If I tab away and shift-tab back it will say
randymeyer@....

I thought this was still working after I loaded the latest Jaws 18 update.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: MOVING TO NEXT MESSAGE IN Outlook?

 

Robin,

          You're quite welcome.  Those are standard Outlook shortcuts that I believe work in all versions of MS-Outlook, but definitely 2010 and later.

           I try to stick with either Windows native shortcuts or a program's native shortcuts first, resorting to anything screen reader specific only when it's either necessary or gives a better result (which is often the case using screen reader search rather than native Windows/Program search).

          Yes.  If you're in the reading window,

           CTRL+>     Go to Next Message
           CTRL+<     Go to Previous Message

You don't need to hit shift for the greater than and less than signs, so effectively Control plus period goes to the next message and control plus comma goes to the previous message (at least on most keyboards - if the greater than and less than signs, respectively are not above period and comma then use the keys that they are on and produced if you hit SHIFT).

Thanks Mike for this list of What’s new features.

 

As a former Window-eyes user, the thing I miss most is being able to jump from link to link whether visited or not.  This item for Edge may make me start using Edge a lot:

• You can now use the U and SHIFT+U Navigation Quick Keys in Edge to move by links. Note that in Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome, these commands
only move to the next or previous unvisited link. However, since Edge currently does not indicate when a link has been visited, U and SHIFT+U will move
to all links in this browser.

 

I know tabbing will stop at links, but it stops at other stuff too.

 

I hope Freedom incorporates a short cut key in all browsers to ignore whether a link is visited or not and just skip anything that isn’t a link.

Howdy All,

 

Here are the download links & what's new for this Beta 2 2018.1710.1 update.

 

32 Bit:

 

 

64 Bit:

 

 


The following is a list of improvements made between the first Public Beta and Public Beta 2. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.

 

JAWS
list of 11 items
• If you are running a previous version of JAWS while installing 2018, JAWS now speaks the progress bar which displays the percentage of the install that
is complete. The self-voicing feature of the installer also now announces more progress information.
• Improved various installer messages including the messages confirming a successful install or uninstall.
• When using the default voice contexts for the various cursors and you press NUM PAD+MINUS to turn on the JAWS Cursor, resolved a customer reported issue
where "JAWS Cursor" was not being announced using the correct voice, which uses a lower pitch.
• Added new Research It lookup sources to the French version of JAWS. These enable French users to search BNFA or ÉOLE, two major French libraries for
the blind.
• When using JAWS Settings Center in Windows 10, resolved an issue where JAWS was not announcing the current location in the tree view after expanding
a group, or the path to the currently selected item when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW. In addition, when navigating the filter tree view of results after performing
a search, JAWS now announces the item followed by its location.
• The What's New in JAWS DAISY book has been updated for JAWS 2018. To get the new book, select Training from the JAWS Help menu to open the JAWS Basic
Training Table of Contents in FSReader, and then press ENTER on the What's New in JAWS link.
• In response to a customer request, JAWS now includes version 3.3 of the Liblouis braille translator.
• Updated the control names in Settings Center for the Virtual Cursor verbosity options to say, "Web Verbosity Levels" and "Configure Web Verbosity Levels",
to make them easier to find when doing a search.
• If the JAWS Laptop keyboard layout is active, resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+SHIFT+1 through 0 was not working in Excel to define a monitor
cell. In addition, INSERT+SHIFT+T now works in Winamp to display track information. In Laptop layout, both The CAPS LOCK and INSERT keys can be used as
the JAWS Key.
• Addressed issues with editing text files on remote systems using SSH.
• A customer using the Spanish version of JAWS reported several issues with various help and application messages. These have been resolved.
list end

 

Convenient OCR
list of 4 items
• In response to customer feedback, improved the quality of the OCR results when using INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, F to recognize an image file or INSERT+SPACEBAR,
O, D to recognize a PDF document in Adobe Reader.
• Addressed reports where JAWS 2018 would not install on certain 64-bit computers. In these cases, the installation process was not able to install the
Convenient OCR components. This is now fixed.
• In response to customer feedback, the camera light frequency correction is now saved when changed through the Advanced dialog box located in the Camera
and Scanner Recognition dialog box.
• JAWS now plays a progress sound when recognizing large PDF documents.
list end

 

Google Docs
list of 2 items
• You can now press CTRL+APOSTROPHE or CTRL+SEMICOLON in Google Docs to move to the next or previous misspelled word in a document.
• When navigating a Google Docs table in Chrome using JAWS table reading commands (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys, addressed an issue where JAWS was double speaking
cell contents.
list end

 

Microsoft Office
list of 3 items
• Resolved a customer reported issue with the 8400 series of Outlook 365 updates where JAWS was not automatically reading the suggested addresses when
typing in the address fields of a new message. To check your Outlook 365 version, use the JAWS command CTRL+INSERT+V while focused in Outlook.
• When navigating time slots in the Outlook Calendar using Vocalizer Expressive for speech, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was saying "comma" before
the time.
• When opening the Spell Checker for the first time after starting Word 365, resolved an issue where JAWS was not automatically reading the misspelled
word and suggestion.
list end

 

Skype
list of 1 items
• Resolved an issue where both JAWS and Skype would stop working if the Call Quality Feedback dialog box was displayed after ending a call.
list end

 

Web Browsers
list of 10 items
• JAWS 2018 contains changes necessary to support Firefox version 57, scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2017.
• Improved overall JAWS performance with Edge. In particular, multiple reports where Edge would unexpectedly stop working on various web pages or become
less responsive after opening multiple pages were addressed.
• When INSERT+A is pressed to read the web page address in Firefox or Chrome, addressed a customer reported issue where this information was not being
displayed in braille if flash message verbosity was set to Advanced.
• Addressed an issue with JAWS double speaking live region updates in Google Chrome.
• Resolved an issue where Internet Explorer would sometimes close unexpectedly when right clicking on various toolbar items using the mouse.
• Resolved a reported issue with JAWS not reading as expected when encountering form controls inside an ARIA grid.
• You can now use the U and SHIFT+U Navigation Quick Keys in Edge to move by links. Note that in Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome, these commands

wondering about firefox 57

netbat66
 

people have been updated even though they set firefox to not update. is there an option to also include betas for upgrades? maybe this is why this is happening. i didn't find anything in the settings.
i say this because even on the mmazila page the only download they have is version 56 even after i installed it i checked for updates and firefox said i had the most current version.
but it did not give me the option to do a mobile installation. is there another mobile site to download from?
i use to have the 2 choices when installing firefox directly.
