The alarm/Cortana sounds probably just dominate Jaws, this happens also sometimes when you go on a website where some video ad starts playing and suddenly you can hardly hear Jaws anymore because of the other audio.

If audio ducking works correctly it is actually supposed to duck/lower other audio not Jaws so that as soon as you use Jaws you can actually hear it and find a button or whatever to turn off the alarm or to stop the video from playing.

As I said before, there is no good solution without a separate sound card or USB sound device. I just received an email from AT Guys, they are selling an USB audio device which has a 3.5mm headphone speaker jack and a 3.5mm microphone jack for $10, here is the link:

 

Aluminum USB External Stereo Sound Adapter for Windows and Mac

 

I am considering ordering at least 3 or 4 of these things for my various computers so I can finally separate Jaws and other audio.

What Nino wants is to find out how to prevent JAWS from being lowered when he gets an alarm notice from Cortana. When Nino gets a notice now, he can’t hear JAWS tell him for what time the alarm is set. Audio Ducking is not on, neither is the Communications tab set to reduce JAWS. We think this is a function of Cortana for which there is no way to prevent the JAWS audio from being lowered.

Hi,

If I’m understanding Nino’s post correctly, he wants JAWS to stay silent when interacting with Cortana, not the other way around. Is this correct?

It is tricky to implement application sleep mode for Cortana, because it’ll affect Start menu as well.

Technical: in Windows 10, Cortana and Start menu are housed inside one executable: SearchUI.exe. This is the reason why you’d hear “Cortana” when you open Start menu. If application sleep mode is applied to SearchUI.exe, not only JAWS would stay silent, Start menu interaction won’t work properly.

There is a way to let JAWS stay silent when you talk to Cortana: scripting SearchUI.exe (searchui.jss). The idea is to catch UIA events on a particular control and force JAWS to stay silent as long as a particular event is occurring on that UIA element (trust me, it took me months to get it right for another screen reader; talk to me privately if you have questions on how I did it for NVDA).

Cheers,

Joseph

The most accessible VOIP application that I have found on the PC is called FS Client.  It has no affiliation with Freedom Scientific.  It is very user friendly, and works better than BRIA did on the computer in my case.

Cristóbal,

            If you have a Google account I would strongly suggest you at least try out getting a Google Voice number and then playing with the Hangouts app on iOS and possibly under Chrome.  One can also access the Hangouts functionality at hangouts.google.com.

            I do not believe a hold function is available, but I do know that a mute function is.  I also don't know if one can use it to do multi-way calling for phone calls, but I know that one can do so for the built-in video calling function, but that applies only to others who have Google Accounts.

            My business number is a Google Voice number that I access exclusively via Hangouts.  One can also use the native Google Voice webpage, too, but I haven't done that in ages because, for me, Hangouts is a superior interface.

            Since it's free and not all that complicated to set up it's worth giving it a whirl and reporting back on what is, and is not, accessible via the various interfaces.  If you want to talk to me off-list about this you know how to reach me.

moderated Re: audio ducking and Jaws and cortanna

 

I would highly recommend you turn off audio ducking since that feature is not working correctly. I don’t even know why the feature is still there since FS seems to have abandoned it. I would also write to FS and ask them why they are not either decide to fix it or take it out.

When I just tried it again using the Windows 10 Audible app (the one from the Windows store) the audio book was quieter with audio ducking on, but the volume did not come up even if I didn’t touch the keuyboard. As soon as I turned audio ducking off with the layered key command Jaws Key+Spacebar and D, the audio book volume came up, as soon as I turned it on it went down and stayed down.

I am a Jaws beta tester as well and this has come up on the beta list not that long ago and there was no response from FS regarding this feature. It was first introduced I think maybe with Windows 8 or 8.1, at some point FS announced the feature was not working correctly and it would be disabled for now, now it does seem to do something except it is not how it is supposed to work.

With the support for multiple audio devices in Windows 10 April update I think the best solution is to have Jaws on a dedicated audio device.

 Audio ducking should reduce the volume of other programs other than jars. That setting is in the jaws settings. Also go to your system volume settings and you should be able to reduce Cortana is volume separate from all the others in the system volume settings.

moderated Looking for an accessible VOIP/softphone option for desktop and iOS mobile

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I know this topic has come up from time to time before, but I was hoping for a refresher.

I’m in need of a VOIP/softphone solution that will work with desktop and mobile. In my case, iOS.

I as well as other parties need to be able to make and receive calls, place people on hold, etc.

I don’t want to get a dedicated phone line per say since I would need to take and review information over the phone.

I’ve currently got a Skype number that has worked fine for now with one business of mine, but I have this other endeavor where it would not just be me who would need to access/be accessible via phone. That and Skype’s accessibility has been less than inspiring as of late. I’m still on Skype desktop 7.4 for this purpose. I know there’s also Skype for business, but from what I’ve read with the experience of others, it too has its issues.

So… can anyone recommend a telephone service/product that can be used in conjunction from the PC (Jaws user) and an iPhone that meets all of these requirements?

Thanks,

Cristóbal

I think with the latest version of windows when you create a bootable disk using windows you can use Narrator to get around on the machine.

Depending how your computer is willdetermain what kind of boot disk you create.

If you have the efui bios you will probably turn secure boot in the bios.

I will gather more info and send it to you.

Hi.
I'm trying out terrabyte backup software.'
If I activate jaws and select backup the hard drive is jaws still activated if I restore the harddrive?
If I create a restore boot disk is it easy to use?

Good morning;

In order for the keystroke, shift+capslock+b=battery to work, you need to have the jaws keyboard layout set to laptop.

if you need instructions please shout.

 

 

       The impossible is the untried,  Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Marilyn:

 

The percentage should just be announced.

 

Again, be sure you are hitting both the shift lock and shift keys together before pressing the letter B.

 

Not sure why this isn’t working for you.

Tom,

 

Well, still no luck. I have pressed the shift keys on both the left and right of the keyboard together with caps lock and then the letter b. The only thing that happens is that caps lock on and the b is announced, along with a little beep sound to indicate caps on or off.

 

Should I be arrowing to somewhere or should the percentage just be announced?

 

Thanks.

 

Marilyn

Yes, they should work.

 

Be sure to press the shift and shift lock key simultaneously, followed by the letter B. as in bravo.

 

Let us know if this still does not work for you.

Tom,

 

I am using Windows 7 and JAWS 17 latest update. Will the 3 keystrokes still be the same? I tried, but without success.  

 

Thanks.

Marilyn:

 

When using my Windows 7 laptop with Jaws 2018 here, I hit shift capslock B. … This will give me the percentage of charge left in my battery.  If the computer is plugged in, it will indicate that the battery is charging.

 

The battery will charge while using your computer when plugged in.  However, it is good  to occasionally unplug the laptop in order to let the battery cycle through a charge to preserve its life as long as possible.

Hello listers,

 

Please help –

 

I have a laptop and want to know – step by step please - how to find out how much battery power is left before I have to charge it again. Also, does the machine have to be off and plugged in to charge, or will it charge while plugged in and is in use?

 

Many thanks.

 

Marilyn

Oops, that should have been, "do not have the toggle for Always show all icons in the notification area set to ON" or "have the toggle for Always show all icons in the notification area set to Off."

Bad proofing.

Just as a quick note, the screen reader is not calling the notification area (AKA the system tray) the notification chevron, but is instead telling you that you have landed on the notification chevron as the first item in the notification area.  

Most of us, in Settings, Personalization, Taskbar Pane, Notification Area Section, Select which icons appear in the notification area link do not have the toggle for Always show all icons in the notification area set to Off.   As a result, only those icons for running programs or system features that have their individual toggles set to ON will always be visible in the main body of the notification area.  All other running programs or system features will be in the notification overflow area, which is accessed by activating the notification chevron, which is what you've landed on when you hear it announced.

I'd go nuts if many of the system tray/notification area icons that I very seldom need to reference were all to be shown in the notification area.
