Can you use your JAWS verbosity settings? I think this is in the setting center, but I am not sure.

Hello all.

I am using Jaws 2018 with the update from Yesterday.

This was happening before the latest update, but it is pretty annoying and slows things down.

There is a program we use for time tracking. In this program is a table of locations that employees clock in and out of. Each job can be GPS’ed to make sure the employee is where he said he was.

The indication that a location has or has not been assigned its GPS is indicated with a Check Box.

Here is the speech history when I arrow down the table of locations.

row 60 Read Only
Checked
row 61 Read Only
Checked
row 62 Read Only
Checked
row 63 Read Only
Unchecked

 

It would be nicer and a bit faster to cut a few words out of this feedback. In particular the phrase Read Only.

Is there a way to stop Jaws from saying this?

Thanks

Shannon

I hope others have different results, but I'm still experiencing the problem
of JAWS not being able to read text in cells within Excel when I press F2.

I have discovered that if I type 8 characters or less, I can press F2 and
arrow through the letters and make my edits. If the cell contains a word or
words with more than 8 characters, and if I press F2, JAWS cannot read the
text inside the cell. It appears it's the number of characters in a cell

JR,
While my problem is slightly different, it also was still not fixed. Mine
can't read cell formulas with references to other cells. I notified VFO
that my incident has still not been fixed and they indicated the incident #
would be upgraded again for another look. I provided them large amounts of

Re: What backup software can we use with jaws?

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi all,

Though SyncBack seems like a great solution, it might be overkill for the task at hand. Back in my Windows 7 days I used SyncToy 2.1 problem free, and now on Windows 10 I continue to use SyncToy 2.1 without issues.

My SyncToy needs are simple, backup all important folders such as Documents, Downloads, contacts, etc. on my C:\ drive to my external drive. After the initial pairing, the backup process takes about 5 minutes--depending on how many new files I've added. I backup in this manner at the beginning of every month.

Give SyncToy a try. It is very accessible, and 100% free.

I don’t know if this is the cause of your issue, but it may be worth looking at.
When I was still able to use ZoomText I learned that unless I expanded the width of a column I couldn’t see all the characters in the cell. Expanding that column would reveal that text I KNEW was there.

New JAWS2018.1808.10.400 Build Update Download Links, + What's New in this Release

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Like the subject line says, download links + what's new is below.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2018.1808.10 (August 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2018 between the July 2018 update and the August 2018 update.
 
Skype
 
Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.
 
1. You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point
not yet known.
2. You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in this latest JAWS 2018 August update. See details below.
3. You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7
or 8 for the best support.
 
For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the
Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".
 
For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands
are:
 
• Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E
• Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y
• Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N
 
You can also use the JAWS command INSERT+W while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when using Skype.
For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the
Skype Hotkeys Web Page.
 
Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another
application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the
caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.
 
Other Changes
• Resolved an issue in Excel from Office 365 where JAWS was not correctly reading the contents of cells after pressing F2 to edit.
• If Contracted Braille Input is enabled, resolved an issue where various JAWS and Windows commands were not working as expected when performed from a
braille display such as the Focus Blue.
• Resolved a reported issue with the text of links in the JAWS Virtual Viewer not being shown on the braille display if status cells were turned off.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Amazon Kindle app would stop working when attempting to read tables in certain books.
• When configuring the High, Medium, or Low web verbosity levels in Settings Center, the start and end announcements for regions can now be turned off
or on in Edge.
• Addressed visual tracking issues with JAWS and Fusion when navigating web pages in Firefox 60 and later using the ARROW keys and Navigation Quick Keys.
• A customer reported that JAWS would unexpectedly stop speaking while navigating a particular document in Word. This is now fixed.
• When using the INSERT+SHIFT+R or WINDOWS+SEMICOLON commands in word to list revisions or display revisions in the Virtual Viewer, if the document contains
a lot of revisions, JAWS now plays a sound every few seconds as the list is being built. After 30 seconds, if all revisions have not yet been found, JAWS
plays a different tone, and only the revisions found up to that point are displayed.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS could sometimes close unexpectedly while reading an Outlook message using Say All.
• JAWS now includes a Turkish language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.
• Corrected the pronunciation of some symbols in the French version of JAWS.
 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Balloons

Hi,

 

With certain Windows messages, as has been suggested, when you hear the balloon pop up, press the JAWS left click command which is numpad slash.

 

You can also press Windows key+A to show the Windows 10 action center. Now tab through the screen until you come across the list of messages. Once you find the list of messages, simply down arrow through them.

Dear friend, if you have July update of JAWS, then update it to August update.

If you don’t like it, just uninstall JAWS without share component and install July update of JAWS that’s all!

Also going to let you know that if you are user of Skype Electron, do not update it because if you update it, you will loose announcements of Skype such as sending messages deleting chats etc!

Enhancements in JAWS 2018.1808.10 (August 2018)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2018 between the July 2018 update and the August 2018 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page. You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Skype

Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.

1.       You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point not yet known.

2.       You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in this latest JAWS 2018 August update. See details below.

3.       You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7 or 8 for the best support.

For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".

For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands are:

·         Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E

·         Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y

·         Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N

You can also use the JAWS command INSERT+W while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when using Skype. For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the Skype Hotkeys Web Page.

Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.

Other Changes

·         Resolved an issue in Excel from Office 365 where JAWS was not correctly reading the contents of cells after pressing F2 to edit.

·         If Contracted Braille Input is enabled, resolved an issue where various JAWS and Windows commands were not working as expected when performed from a braille display such as the Focus Blue.

·         Resolved a reported issue with the text of links in the JAWS Virtual Viewer not being shown on the braille display if status cells were turned off.

·         Addressed a reported issue where the Amazon Kindle app would stop working when attempting to read tables in certain books.

·         When configuring the High, Medium, or Low web verbosity levels in Settings Center, the start and end announcements for regions can now be turned off or on in Edge.

·         Addressed visual tracking issues with JAWS and Fusion when navigating web pages in Firefox 60 and later using the ARROW keys and Navigation Quick Keys.

·         A customer reported that JAWS would unexpectedly stop speaking while navigating a particular document in Word. This is now fixed.

·         When using the INSERT+SHIFT+R or WINDOWS+SEMICOLON commands in word to list revisions or display revisions in the Virtual Viewer, if the document contains a lot of revisions, JAWS now plays a sound every few seconds as the list is being built. After 30 seconds, if all revisions have not yet been found, JAWS plays a different tone, and only the revisions found up to that point are displayed.

·         Resolved an issue where JAWS could sometimes close unexpectedly while reading an Outlook message using Say All.

·         JAWS now includes a Turkish language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

·         Corrected the pronunciation of some symbols in the French version of JAWS.
