Hi. Taking a online course diploma of networking from http://www.upskilled.instructure.com. Only issue, was logging in and would not log me in, until I then checked the box. Works great with chrome, edge and firefox.

No issues, except the quizzes, wish there was an easier way to then turn off all the toolbars and use straight html and using windows 10 pro 64 bit and jaws 2021 latest version on a assuss laptop.

Works great.

Wish there was a way to see which members where in my course, trainers and students.

Thanks.

Ps: maybe debra could e-mail me off list as well.

Yeah so both are at least 10 years old and both were serviced in 2016. One regular maintenance and the other for maintenance, a cleaning and cell replacements.

They’re the big bulky style from back in the day, but that’s not my concern. Being an 80 cell display, it’s not like I’d be carrying it around anyway.

Thanks again,

I don’t know if they are open to such a request, I would certainly hope so, but you won’t know until you ask.

Please let us know the outcome.

So, I have the opportunity to buy a used Freedom scientific  80 cell Braille display. The seller supplied me with the serial number so I could check it out with the manufacturer to see how old it is, if it’s been serviced etc. (they’re not the original owner of the display).

Can I just call FS at their 800 number and provide the serial number or is there some other way to verify if it’s been serviced at all or how old the unit may be? Can I just email the regular support@... address?

I’ve never done this so was just curious as to the process.

You can use the pearl camera to scan things directly into jaws.  If you do the layered keystroke insert space and then oh for OCR and a for acquire, that should have you choose the pearl camera as your input source.

Hi Dan,

 

I have this problem too. Have you updated your Outlook lately?

 

Unlike the Windows update, This update is not automatic and I find I have to do it once a week or sometimes once a fortnight.

 

Once updated, Outlook works a lot better.

 

Steps to update:

 

  1. Press Alt + F
  2. Press Control + tab till you get to office account
  3. Tab to Update options
  4. Press tab or down arrow until Jaws says Update Now.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers

Zel

Hello, I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2021, Office2016 and windows10. I had problems for a week when using Outlook2016. I did a update and repair on office2016. That took care of the Outlook problem. Days later I now have a problem when flipping from a web site and Ms word. If I move to quickly between the web site and MS word Jaws will crash. Has anyone encountered this problem? Any thoughts of something I can do to correct the problem? Thanks, Kevin

Dear all,

In notepad, JAWS does not speak when I either read/ select word by

Only option is to restart JAWS. However, this problem occurs

I have updated to the latest update of JAWS 2021.
Please guide.

To sign out of Chrome:

1. Hit Alt to throw focus to the Chrome menu button, but not expanding it.

2. Left arrow until you land on the person logged in, usually this is a single left arrow.

3. Hit Enter to expand, then tab to Sign out.

4. Activate.

Whoever was signed in under Chrome is no longer.

moderated Navigating canvas with Jaws

James Malone
 

Hello all, this question is for anyone but particularly  Debra Armstrong. I have a student that is attending courses at a community college. I was listening to the open line  cast that was made back in February. Debra, you say that Canvas is totally accessible with Jaws. Can you please email me off list on ways to help my client navigate the pages?

I was told that certain web browsers didn’t work with Canvas, and particularly Google Chrome. Here’s the link. https://utah.instructure.com/courses/325662/pages/navigating-canvas-with-a-screen-reader.

Yet, when I went to this link and used Internet explorer, I found that Canvas would not open in Internet Explorer.

When trying to navigate within Chrome, we found that for example when trying to read a message the message preview would come up, but the message body would not read the completed message. My client is using Jaws 21, the latest build. If there is any keystrokes to help read within Canvas, I would like to know what they are so I can give her some assistants before her classes starts on Tuesday.

Feel free to email me at malone_j@....
