I have a user that is running into problems with the latest version of Outlook and the latest version of JAWS.  The user views their contacts as business cards so that it reads the contact’s information.  However, as the user moves through the list of contacts, JAWS reads the contact the user just moved off of and not the currently selected contact.   For example, when the user is on Contact 1 and moves to Contact 2, JAWS reads Contact 1 even through Contact 2 is highlighted.  When the user moves to Contact 3, JAWS reads contact 2.   Any ideas would be helpful.

Re: JAWS Outlook Contacts Help

Steve Nutt
 

Doesn’t help for me.  I think JAWS is reading the previous contact before the screen has settled.

 

Window-Eyes had a wonderful feature called Cursor Delay, where you could slow down reaction to cursoring keys, which would have fixed it.  I see no such feature in JAWS, other than scripting round it.

When you go in to settings it's the first option and already selected.

Accessible (a) checkboxes is down about 3 (just press A, spacebar, then enter, then go back in to settings so your screen reader will read them - may have to use option in screen reader to read between brackets as the checkboxes will be [X] like this or [ ] like this).

Bandwidth, certainly, but not CPU or I/O performance.

PS: I appreciate the approximately 240 megabits per second downstream speed
that I'm getting over my cable connection at the moment. It's much better
than the ADSL line that I used to have, not to mention the dial-up modems
before that.

Task Manager can show you details of CPU usage, including which processes
are consuming the most CPU time.

If it's a question about what is slowing down a system, then you really need
to use analysis tools such as Task Manager.

I've never known updates occurring in the background to affect performance

Problem is, it's not always easy to know when an app like Adobe Reader is
updating. Some apps have update services which run in the background, and
Windows 10 doesn't tell you when apps are updating, only Windows itself.
Part of this question was: How can we tell when apps for Windows are
updating, and which are slowdowns caused by these updates, and which
slowdowns are caused by Windows and apps not playing nice with JAWS and with

Unfortunately, in Windows 10, updates are applied automatically, and
there is apparently no way for the end user to change this behavior as
in Windows 7. That's one reason why I will not update to Windows 10
anytime soon. It seems that every time MS releases a new update to
Windows 10,there is soon a flurry of posts on this and other lists

Hello everyone:

In previous versions of Windows, you were able to choose how you
wanted updates to be performed. I understand, that in Windows 10, this
function is not readily available.

I am currently using Windows 7 Professional. I have Windows Update set
to "Check for updates but let me choose when to download and install
them". I have been lead to believe that in Windows 10, by default,
Microsoft is forcing users of Windows to have updates automatically
installed, regardless of any consequences or problems these updates
might or might not cause the end user.

For managers of I T departments and network administrators, this must
present one hell of a continuous headache, in controlling what updates
are applied to systems throughout their networks and trying to prevent
problems and difficulties occurring on any of their systems.

If anyone on this list knows, how to invoke the function in Windows 10
which was available in previous versions of Windows, I would be very
interested in knowing about it, as this is one of the reasons why I am
very reluctant to update to Windows 10.

Re: Locating Pixel Position

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Mike. I just spoke with VFO today, and they said that the keystroke is ALT plus DELETE.

 

So, Say you have an icon on the screen named Recycle Bin. You navigate to the icon on the screen, hold the ALT key, and press DELETE, and the X and Y coordinates on the screen will be voiced. This may not happen, however in a program such as Microsoft Word. In that case, ALT plus DELETE will give you coordinates based in inches from top and left.

What settings do I need to use so I can access the settings dialog box in Image for windows.

 

For some reason I cant get Jaws to read to put image for windows in advanced mode?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

 

I contacted Terabyte they gave me some information how to get the accessibil check boxes to work,I will paste it here.

 



When you go in to settings it's the first option and already selected.

Accessible (a) checkboxes is down about 3 (just press A, spacebar, then enter, then go back in to settings so your screen reader will read them - may have to use option in screen reader to read between brackets as the checkboxes will be [X] like this or [ ] like this). There is also a setting to change them to be something else.

Hello,

 

Been using image for windows for many years. I have found I needed to use the JAWS cursor quite a bit to read a lot of info in many windows

Keep in mind, Microsoft is stopping the free up-date to windows 10 even if you have a screen reader on your computer.

You can postpone updates if you're running Windows 10 Pro, but not if you

Unfortunately, in Windows 10, updates are applied automatically, and
there is apparently no way for the end user to change this behavior as
in Windows 7. That's one reason why I will not update to Windows 10
anytime soon. It seems that every time MS releases a new update to
Windows 10,there is soon a flurry of posts on this and other lists
about all the problems it causes with JAWS or Outlook or other
programs. So stick with Windows 7 as long as you can.

Hello everyone:

In previous versions of Windows, you were able to choose how you
wanted updates to be performed. I understand, that in Windows 10, this
function is not readily available.

I am currently using Windows 7 Professional. I have Windows Update set
to "Check for updates but let me choose when to download and install
them". I have been lead to believe that in Windows 10, by default,
Microsoft is forcing users of Windows to have updates automatically
installed, regardless of any consequences or problems these updates
might or might not cause the end user.

For managers of I T departments and network administrators, this must
present one hell of a continuous headache, in controlling what updates
are applied to systems throughout their networks and trying to prevent
problems and difficulties occurring on any of their systems.

If anyone on this list knows, how to invoke the function in Windows 10
which was available in previous versions of Windows, I would be very
interested in knowing about it, as this is one of the reasons why I am
very reluctant to update to Windows 10.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

I don't know why the fast start is found after pressing enter on the

move to W10 for good.

My win 7 machine starts Jaws immediately.

hi listers,

my question is this,

how much does it take to jaws start up when you turn on your computer?


I use windows 10 64 bits, intel core i5 and jaws 2018 and after I
logged in it takes about 25 seconds to jaws to start up.

is this on the normal range?

what do you think?


Re: jaws and chrome behaving equally badly on 2 machines

 

I was under the impression that Chrome only started to work well with Jaws 17 and later. Last September I briefly reinstalled Jaws 16 on my Windows 7 desktop at work because an Office update caused Excel to be unuseable for about 2 weeks with anything beyond Jaws 16, but when I tried to use Chrome with Jaws 16 I got nothing at all, I mean Jaws would read nothing whereas with Jaws 18 and now with Jaws 2018 it is my default browser of choice and with the exception of a couple of things it works great.

Hi Ray,
I am not sure that JAWS 13 and 15 supported Chrome. If it did, I would suggest uninstalling Chrome again and reinstalling which ever version was supported at the time with these JAWS versions. I would also disable updates to the browser as updating it is probably causing your issue. You indicated in your message that NVDA had been supported by Chrome on these two machines and I would wonder if you are running the most recent version of this screen reader. If so, then it sounds like these JAWS versions are possibly not supported by your set up.

Re: Anyone know how to change the Windows Update choices in Windows 10

 

As Jason pointed out, if you have Windows 10 Professional you can postpone updates, I believe for several months. I have not found any major issues with any of the Windows 10 updates including major ones like the anniversary update last fall, creator's update in March/April and now the Fall Creator's update.

Sieghard
