Hi, Richard. My setting was set to simulate mouse click in Google Chrome,
Edge, and Firefox. I changed all of them.

Thank you.

John, and all,

This sounds like a problem I was having in Edge.
There is a setting under the Jaws Settings Center that you may want to look
at and consider changing.
Jaws, for some reason only known to the mysterious programmer gods, the
enter key may default to simulate a mouse click instead of sending an Enter
Key.
Open Settings Center with insert+6 on the numbers row.
Arrow down to Web/HTML/PDF closed and press the right arrow to open.
Press the letter m, for miscellaneous and right arrow to open.
Arrow down to: Link Activation Enter simulates mouse click. Press spacebar
so it changes to: Enter sends Enter key
Hit enter to save.
I did this on my default settings because I cannot think of any time I would
want enter to act like a mouse click, but you could just do it for your
browser of choice.

What I do is to use shift enter and that opens a new window and when I
close the window, I am back where I started, I got used to this in Chrome as
well. I also set firefox to open new tabs as windows.

Hi, Richard. Did you go into the advanced settings and make the changes
suggested a couple of days ago? If not, do the following,



1. Open Firefox.

2. In the Address Bar, type the following,



about:config



3. When it gives you the option to accept the risk and continue, Press
ENTER on that button.

4. After accepting the risk, an edit box will come up that allows you to
enter something to find. Enter the following into that box,



skeleton



5. TAB to the entry that says,



browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI



6. Arrow down, and you will see a toggle button.

7. Toggle browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI=True to

browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI=False

8. Once this is done, close Firefox.

9. Now Firefox should behave as it has in the past.

Hi!



I am using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10. In the past, if I clicked on a link
somewhere like within an email or a desktop shortcut, Firefox (my default
browser) would launch and I would be automatically switch to that window.
Now, when I click on a link, Firefox launches but I *am not* switched to
that window. To get to the newly launched Firefox window, I have to tab
around to it. Seemingly, this started with the latest update to Firefox.
How can I return to the functionality where upon clicking on a link I get
automatically switched to the Firefox window?



Thanks,

Richard

I’m not sure if it is more approachable or not.  I’d think Gil Pries, would attract more viewers. A lot of people are turned off of religion, so when they see, Pastor, they might think more religious leanings instead of viewing your posts, the delete key could be their main go to key.

Good morning, Jeff Lukacsena,

First of all, sorry for providing the same links as mentioned in the other mail. I wrote my mail without knowing about this answer. 

Since JAWS scripting isn't a wide spread scripting language there are not so much resources out there. Here are a few of them: 

A introduction in JAWS scripting from Freedom Scientific: 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/Content/Documents/Other/ScriptManual/01-0_Introduction.htm

Here's the same resource as above but as self-extracting file: 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/Content/Documents/Other/Basics_of_Scripting.exe

Most important in scripting is the FSDN. This is windows help file in CHM with all of the functions available in JAWS. There are some common standards and introductions to special themes included as well. 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/support/jawsdocumentation/FSDN

If you dive deeper into scripting there's also a list of properties and methods regarding UIA. UIA is the accessibility feature most used this days, especially in modern windows apps from Microsoft Store but not alone for this kind of apps. 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/support/jawsdocumentation/UIAScriptAPI

If you want to exchange and ask questions about scripting there's a mailing list at FreeLists. You can find solutions of typical problems in the archive and of corse ask questions to the list members: 

https://www.freelists.org/list/jawsscripts

If you want to script web sites, for example to execute buttons, bring something to focus or similar things, then you might interested in the domain-specific scripting, also a part of JAWS scripting language. You can find an introduction here: 

https://doccenter.freedomscientific.com/doccenter2/doccenter/rs25c51746a0cc/DomainScripts/02_DomainScripts.htm

Some personal thoughts: 

Freedom Scientific made a lot of applications accessible with scripts. All of this files are include with source code. To my opinion it's a good thing to study them as well and see how Freedom solved problems. 

At first glance it could be deterrent effect, look all this code stuff especially if scripting in general is new to you. And the focus of the introductions and maybe other resources I forget to mentions is on using JAWS Cursor and the so-called OSM (= Off Screen Model). But this approach is disappearing more and more. The new apps from Microsoft Store as well as some often used programs like Microsoft Word, Outlook, Excel are using UIA and therefore not usable with OSM (= JAWS Cursor). This can be very frustrating because you want to practice OSM scripting and this things don't work with UIA. 

On the other hand you need some kind of introduction and there's not beginner tutorial based on UIA. 

I don't want to scare you off but I think it could be helpful to know about this things to avoid frustration. 

I think best way is to stay in exchange with the mailing list mentioned above and ask. Perhaps there are more tips and answers available there and the members are always willing to help. 

Good luck and happy scripting 
Udo

Good morning, Jeff Lukacsena,

First of all, sorry for providing the same links as mentioned in the other mail. I wrote my mail without knowing about this answer. 

Since JAWS scripting isn't a wide spread scripting language there are not so much resources out there. Here are a few of them: 

A introduction in JAWS scripting from Freedom Scientific: 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/Content/Documents/Other/ScriptManual/01-0_Introduction.htm

Here's the same resource as above but as self-extracting file: 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/Content/Documents/Other/Basics_of_Scripting.exe

Most important in scripting is the FSDN. This is windows help file in CHM with all of the functions available in JAWS. There are some common standards and introductions to special themes included as well. 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/support/jawsdocumentation/FSDN

If you dive deeper into scripting there's also a list of properties and methods regarding UIA. UIA is the accessibility feature most used this days, especially in modern windows apps from Microsoft Store but not alone for this kind of apps. 

https://support.freedomscientific.com/support/jawsdocumentation/UIAScriptAPI

If you want to exchange and ask questions about scripting there's a mailing list at FreeLists. You can find solutions of typical problems in the archive and of corse ask questions to the list members: 

https://www.freelists.org/list/jawsscripts

If you want to script web sites, for example to execute buttons, bring something to focus or similar things, then you might interested in the domain-specific scripting, also a part of JAWS scripting language. You can find an introduction here: 

https://doccenter.freedomscientific.com/doccenter2/doccenter/rs25c51746a0cc/DomainScripts/02_DomainScripts.htm

Some personal thoughts: 

Freedom Scientific made a lot of applications accessible with scripts. All of this files are include with source code. To my opinion it's a good thing to study them as well and see how Freedom solved problems. 

At first glance it could be deterrent effect, look all this code stuff especially if scripting in general is new to you. And the focus of the introductions and maybe other resources I forget to mentions is on using JAWS Cursor and the so-called OSM (= Off Screen Model). But this approach is disappearing more and more. The new apps from Microsoft Store as well as some often used programs like Microsoft Word, Outlook, Excel are using UIA and therefore not usable with OSM (= JAWS Cursor). This can be very frustrating because you want to practice OSM scripting and this things don't work with UIA. 

On the other hand you need some kind of introduction and there's not beginner tutorial based on UIA. 

I don't want to scare you off but I think it could be helpful to know about this things to avoid frustration. 

I think best way is to stay in exchange with the mailing list mentioned above and ask. Perhaps there are more tips and answers available there and the members are always willing to help. 

Good luck and happy scripting 
Udo

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew a place to find out how to learn how to do scripting for Jaws?

Thanks,

Jeff Lukacsena

Sometimes off-topic things get posted and in case you hadn't noticed it, there is a "Mute this topic" link at the bottom of each message. If you don't want to press deklete and you are not interested in a topic just use it and it's done.

I don't know. But perhaps, if the group is on groups.io, you could go online and just change your email address. Instead of constantly subscribing to groups. If you need help doing this, please let me know. And I will be glad to walk you through the steps.

Hi,
I'm working on resubscribing to all the lists I'm on, because my ISP is discontinuing eMail service to its customers.
Does anyone know if anyone is managing Blind-L?
I sent a subscribe to the list, but nothing has come back.
Thanks.

Glad to know that we can do this within Zoom.

Ann,

I believe the Zoom notifications being discussed here are from Zoom, not
JAWS. As Jim posted, alt + Windows + s should turn off the Zoom
notifications provided you are using JAWS 2020 or later and your Zoom client
is updated.

Alt+spacebar, then 's' toggles between speech on demand and full
speech. Speech on demand causes JAWS to speak only when spoken to, with
nothing volunteered. If you press a reading command--insert+up arrow--JAWS
will respond to it. However, commands like alt-tab, where speech is not
involved, are silent. I like this setting, but I often forget it is turned
on and wonder why JAWS isn't talking.

I cannot put JAWS to speech on demand as I am taking note with Word on another window. The Zoom is bugging me while I do that.

If you’re wanting to silence them on a Windows computer. I believe it is alt windows s hope this helps.

Hi all,
possible to silence announcement of participant who join and leave a Zoom meeting? These announcement can get quite overwhelming in meeting with hundreds of people joining, because some may not have a very stable internet connection.
 
Thank you.
