The JAWS ducking problem is a Skype setting I'm sure.

 

Unfortunately, I don't think JAWS knows about the new Skype version 8, aka Skype UWP,but if you get Doug Lee's scripts for Skype UWP from http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp, there's probably a JAWS help screen in there.

Hi, Nino. Try one of the following to keep Windows from reducing volume during Skype calls.

 

Windows 10 Automatically Reduces System Volume for Games & PC Calls

 

 

While you are using your PC to place or receive calls or while you are playing games which use PC calls feature, Windows automatically reduces the system volume without even asking you.

 

Actually its a new feature which was introduced in Windows 7 which can be disabled using the following simple steps:

 

1. Open "Sound" applet from Control Panel.

Or right-click on Speaker icon present in system tray and select "Playback devices" or "Recording devices" or "Sounds" option.

 

2. Now go to "Communications" tab and check the option "Do nothing" and Apply it.

 

3. That's it. Now Windows will no longer reduce the system volume.

 

Second option:

 

Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog. If JAWS says Ducking other audio, this was not the problem. Repeat the steps,

 

Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog.

 

JAWS should say, Do not duck other audio.

 

This is where the setting should stay in order that JAWS does not reduce system volume.

Hadn't thought about this, and probably because so few spreadsheets every use this function to increase accessibility.

I'll have to brush up on that so that I can communicate it to those creating spreadsheets that they'd at least like to be "maximally accessible" without additional configuration being needed on the part of a recipient who uses a screen reader.

Yes. VFO knows about this problem. It is a problem with the "fsWow64Proxy" file not being removed during the repair process. I had the same problem, and one of the VFO techs needed to use a microsoft removal tool to correct the problem. Maybe you should call them after the holiday. They will tandem in with you and perform the file removal while you perform the JAWS repair.

Hi all!

Since I upgraded to windows10 1803 the spring version my key echo is working really really weird. If I'm in notepad, wordpad, or word the key echo works fine. However, if I'm surfing the internet doesn't matter which browser, internet explorer 11, chrome, or firefox the key echo gives gibberish. And random gibberish. However, if I flip over to notepad, word, it works correctly.

I asked vfo group they suggested running repair on jaws. so I did.

The repair process starts runs upto 70% and then gives the following error.

jaws the repair has failed
the setup has failed to process the "fsWow64Proxy" component restart the computer and re-run the setup program

error code:
80070666

Note: I've rebooted and re ran the repair process several times.
Have written vfo support, but anyone got an idea what this means etc?


Cause you all know how long it takes vfo support to get back to a person.

Thanks


p.s.

I'm running windows10 1803 patched upto date Jaws J2018.1805.33.400-enu-x64.exe



The computer has a Realtek hd audio card. Use to work fine in windows10 1709 version. My restore point didn't work so can not roll back.

There is a JAWS hotkey for this.

To set the column titles, with your cursor in the appropriate row, press insert+alt+ctrl+c. If you can!
To set the row titles is insert+alt+ctrl+r.

while that sheet is up for either reason and you can forget completely

when he transitioned from one row to another.

     If one has things set up to
read the "row titles" that's all you
hear when you move up or down within a column, changing the row you're on;
otherwise you will hear nothing related to the row title if you move from
column to column within the row. If one has things set up to read the
column titles you will only have these
announced when you move left or right
to a different column, not when going up or down within a column. Of
course, if you use both, you'll hear one or
the other as you move, depending
on exactly which direction you're moving in.

      I wrote what follows as his
cheat sheet for Excel. Shoot to the
section that starts with, " You will receive many files where the column

*Microsoft Excel*

CTRL+Home     Go to Cell A1 (first cell in worksheet)

CTRL+End        Go to last cell in

that you don’t expect, it means that there are cells used way outside the

cell in your working data area
get to the first cell of the first row of your actual data, hit CTRL+Down
Arrow to move to the bottom filled in row, then hit CTRL+Right Arrow to
shoot to the end of that row.

CTRL+Left Arrow Go to first cell in row

CTRL+Right Arrow Go to last cell in row

CTRL+Down Arrow Go to last cell in current column

CTRL+Up Arrow Go to first cell in current column



You will receive many files where the column title row has not been defined
such that JAWS can read it. Once you figure out which row contains the
column titles, do the following:

1.    INS+V, Bring up JAWS Verbosity Settings

2.    Type the word, column, in the Verbosity Search Box

3.    Arrow down to Column Titles Row Range Set

4.    Hit Spacebar, this should cause
JAWS to announce the row number you
were sitting on that contains the column titles. (If this is on the first
row JAWS will say one but if it’s the fifth row it will say five.)

If you also want JAWS to announce the rows by the data that you have in the
first column, you will want to continue as follows:

1.    Hit Down Arrow to move to the Row Titles for Column Range Set

2.    Hit spacebar and JAWS will announce
the column letter that contains
the data that will be used to announce the
row title. So you will hear A if
it’s column A, B if column B, etc.

I have used window-Eyes and Jaws at the same time within the last month and it didn't crash. I suspect it depends on what you are doing, what kind of computer, etc.
Sadly though, I decided to finally uninstall Window-Eyes completely and depend on Jaws and NVDA to get things done since there is no chance of Window-Eyes modifications happening again to adjust to some of the changes in Windows 10 and other programs.

That was a very, very, sad day...

Hi,
Have you tried completely removing and reinstalling JAWS from scratch? Sometimes that should fix this sort of issue where JAWS might not inject part of its code to other programs when needed.
In the meantime, I'll bring this up to a Windows 10 forum in hopes of getting helpful responses from there also.

If you set a bookmark in Excel to read column and row titles, when you move from column to column or row to row JAWS will speak the titles.

According to insert+h, help for JAWS in Excel, insert+alt+shift+c will read the current column title. this doesn't work on my computer with Excel 2016.

To set the bookmark

1. Open the applications menu.
2. Place the cursor in the first cell of the row or column, or the intersection of the two, that you want recognized.
3. Arrow to "define name" (up a few, or down a lot).
4. Press enter
5. Type in a name that JAWS will recognize: rowtitle, columntitle, or merely title.
6. Press enter.

This information is also available in the JAWS training materials, probably better organized than I am.

Hey guys,

Question, i have an excelle spreadsheet here. When i need to get to 1
of the columns, i can get there. When i'm midway down the column, i
would like to read the title of that column. I can't figure out how
to do it other than going back to the top. Any ideas?

Jed, Shift+Alt+JAWSKey+C reads the column title, and in case you'll need
it in the future, Shift+Alt+JAWSKey+R reads the row title.

Hello:

When I click on a post from my facebook friends to read more or to press a reaction button, I hear the message “content not found.”  Consequently, I can’t read more of the message.  What’s going on?  What to do to change this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi, Nino. Try one of the following to keep Windows from reducing volume during Skype calls.

 

Windows 10 Automatically Reduces System Volume for Games & PC Calls

 

 

While you are using your PC to place or receive calls or while you are playing games which use PC calls feature, Windows automatically reduces the system volume without even asking you.

 

Actually its a new feature which was introduced in Windows 7 which can be disabled using the following simple steps:

 

1. Open "Sound" applet from Control Panel.

Or right-click on Speaker icon present in system tray and select "Playback devices" or "Recording devices" or "Sounds" option.

 

2. Now go to "Communications" tab and check the option "Do nothing" and Apply it.

 

3. That's it. Now Windows will no longer reduce the system volume.

 

Second option:

 

Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog. If JAWS says Ducking other audio, this was not the problem. Repeat the steps,

 

Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog.

 

JAWS should say, Do not duck other audio.

 

This is where the setting should stay in order that JAWS does not reduce system volume.

The JAWS ducking problem is a Skype setting I'm sure.


Unfortunately, I don't think JAWS knows about the new Skype version 8, aka Skype UWP,but if you get Doug Lee's scripts for Skype UWP from http://www.dlee.org/skype/uwp, there's probably a JAWS help screen in there.
