and enter the number to lookup the carrier.

Scott,

Thank you.  Glad you reminded me about the keyboard shortcut, as that is something my work laptop does not allow me to do without admin rights.

Robin,

 

Jaws and WindowEyes will coexist on the same computer just fine. I have both installed on several.

Obviously, you only want 1 of them to start on computer startup and you only want one to be running at any given time.

If you think you will switch between them, make sure that a shortcut key (such as CTRL-ALT-J) gets set up for Jaws as this does not happen by default as it did with WindowEyes.

You do this in the properties for the jaws icon that will get put on the desktop.

Your IT person should know how to do this, but if not let me know and I can give you instructions.

 

Have a nice day!

 

Scott

I’m about to install JAWS 18 on my home computer, then will have my tech guys at work install it on my computer there.  Is there anything I need to be aware of to have JAWS and Window Eyes co-exist on my computers at the same time?  I already have NVDA installed as a backup and that does not seem to cause issues, but, since I do not have admin rights to my work laptop, I want to anticipate anything I should ask the tech guy for help with as I start the switch over process.

Hello; don’t know how useful this info is,

Never the less,

 

 

 

To send a text message from your computer to someone's cell phone, do the following. There will be a complete list of cell phone suffixes to use at the

end of the steps.

 

1. If you want to send a text message to someone using A T&T, for example, and their cell phone number is 555-555-5555. You open a new email message and

in the " To " field type

5555555555 at txt.att.net

You don't put any dashes in the cell number, just the digits.

2. Tab to the subject field and put in a subject line.

3. Tab to the edit field and put in your message. Then send as usual.

 

They receive the text message and, when they reply, it comes to your inbox. Here are the email suffixes you add to the cell phone number.

Good afternoon all;

Also there was another office 2016, after installing both, and doing a restart, I have discovered that the autocomplete in outlook is broken again.

There was a update for this issue just last week.

JAWS 2018 Public Beta 3 Download Links + What's New

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below are the direct download links for the Latest JAWS 2018 Beta 3 update along with what's new in this release.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2018 Public Beta 3
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Note: For Dutch users, no update will be presented during a Check for Updates. You must uninstall all prior JAWS 2018 builds including shared components,
and then perform a full install of Public Beta 3 or the final release. Once Public Beta 3 or later is installed, future JAWS updates will work as expected.
 
Option for Moving to Any Link Added to Navigation Quick Key Manager
 
A new navigation option that can manually be assigned to a Navigation Quick Key has been added for use in all browsers to move to any link. To assign a
key to this action, do the following:
 
list of 4 items
1. Press INSERT+F2, then select Navigation Quick Keys.
2. Select Any Link from the list and then choose the Edit Key Assignment button.
3. In the edit box, type the key you want to assign to this option and press ENTER. The key must be A through z or 0 through 9.
4. Choose OK to save your change and close the dialog box.
list end
 
Once this item is assigned, it will move the Virtual Cursor in a browser to both visited and unvisited links.
 
Other Changes
list of 11 items
• Addressed reports where JAWS 2018 would not install on certain 64-bit computers. In these cases, the installation process was not able to install the
Convenient OCR components. This is now fixed.
• Resolved issues using JAWS with Edge in the Windows 10 Fall Creators update.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS would stop responding when opening certain PDF documents.
• Addressed issues with the JAWS 2018 installer not working as expected on systems running the Avast or AVG antivirus software.
• Addressed an issue where braille was not always tracking properly in multiline edit fields in Internet Explorer.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where it was necessary to press INSERT+ESC to perform a JAWS screen refresh on certain pages in order to view changes
in page content. This was observed with Internet Explorer in Windows 10.
• If more than one keyboard layout is available for an input language, resolved an issue where JAWS would not indicate in speech or braille when pressing
CTRL+SHIFT to change the keyboard layout in Windows 7.
• If you changed the default voice or pitch in the active voice profile for a specific context such as the PC Cursor, resolved an issue where content was
not being spoken using the selected voice or pitch as expected.
• Resolved an issue where pressing the Left or Right Selector button on a Focus braille display was not changing the Braille Auto Advance speed.
• When navigating the User Account Control (UAC) dialog box, resolved an issue where JAWS was not announcing the currently selected option.
• Added a new Arabic Computer Braille table.
list end
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: downloading updates

David Moore
 

Hi all!

It took about an hour to install after I restarted the computer as well.

Wow, I kept turning on Narrator as well, and JAWS finally came on over an hour later.

I love this version.

NVDA is so fast in Edge and file explorer. Narrator is much snappier with Microsoft Mark, and works much better in Edge and Chrome. NVDA works really well, now, in the mail app.

Wow, NVDA can keep up with my typing.

It seems like many more of us are getting the 1709 much faster than we did with the 1703 version. It took months to get that one.

Re: How to get firefox to stop asking me to update

Thanks Bill. I believe I did uncheck that box but I'll be sure and verify.

Hi, Kimber. There is one more check box you need to uncheck. It is also in advanced, under updates. It is the one which says, Use a background service to update Firefox. If this box remains checked, Firefox will still update.

Thank you! It was the pressing spacebar on the listbox that I was
missing. I've now checked never check for updates so we'll see if that
works.

Kimber, try the following:

press alt, then t for tools and o for options.
the next step may not be necessary, but press control+home and down
arrow (once for me) until JAWS announces, listbox, and press the spacebar.
you'll be able to down or up arrow to the advanced category, tab twice,
and right or left arrow to the update tab. tab once and...
you know the rest, right? good luck.

Subject: How to get firefox to stop asking me to update

Hi all,

So after the nightmare that is the latest firefox version I was able
to install the previous version which works fine. The only problem is
FF keeps asking me to update and I do mean "keeps" asking, like
several times a day. It is driving me crazy. I googled for a possible
solution and found instructions to go to the advanced tab in options
and tell ff to never check for updates. The problem is I don't know
how to get to the advance tab. I can't seem to find my way out of the
general tab to even try this solution.

Can somebody help? Please?

Kim

FTP Client Question.

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

 

Which do people find to be the most accessible FTP Client with JAWS. I’ve used FileZilla and find it sort of accessible but I can’t get to the file transfer cue.

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Debbie

Re: downloading updates

John Covici
 

I did not see any download button. I did not check for updates,
because I have the option set not to download them automatically.
This is why I was looking for the download updates button.

And note I installed this tonight and it took a very long time after
the reboot (over an hour), during which jaws did not start, I had to
start narrator to get any progress indication, and even that was
forced to restart several times by the update process.

How is that done these days?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
