Does the crash occur if you use control+Y?

Richard,

 

I updated the subject line as we’ve drifted into another topic.

Generally, I use Ctrl, shift, tab to get out of an existing inbox and back to the tree. Then, as you, I use first letter navigation to  get to whatever folder I want. When I hit enter to take me into that folder, Outlook crashes, and JAWS becomes often unresponsive. I generally don’t use the Ctrl Y choice unless I need to open something not available on the trees via the way I described.

Hi,

How are you changing folders?

I have as many Email accounts as you in Outlook 2016 and changing folders has not crashed outlook yet.

 

I use Control+y and then first letter navigation to get to the account I want and hit right arrow to open it and down arrow to the inbox and hit enter.

I keep the ones that are not my main email closed to make it easier to get back to the inbox for this account that I use for most things.

I will try this after they fix 2018 with Outlook 2016. Since email is the main thing I do on the computer, and it is open all the time, I cannot have JAWS 2018 running as it will crash Outlook as soon as I go to change folders and/or email accounts. Since I have 5 active accounts, each time I pop into my email, I check each one. I cannot be bothered with turning 2018 off, launching JAWS 18 each time I check mail, just do it too often. Looking forward to kicking the tires on 2018 as soon as that is fixed. An yes, this was reported via beta form the first day of the release.

Hi!

That is what I did as well. Once you save it as a JPG file! Just press applications or shift+F10 and arrow down to recognize with JAWS, and JAWS will bring up a virtual document that you can read, copy from, and perform commands for a virtual document. This is beautiful!

I would think you would save the scan as a jpg file then perform the Jaws OCR on it.  Least that is what worked for me.

JAWS 2018 installation (was RE: JAWS 2018 and Edge)

Jason White
 

This is fixed in JAWS 2018 itself – you can now use Insert+B to read the dialogs in modern apps. After you upgrade to 2018, the problem goes away.

I have also noticed problems with the Windows 10 mail program’s reading pane not updating, such that, when you read your first message, then try to read any additional ones, you still get the first message read to you.  However, the screen shows the right thing.

 

I have reported this, and I imagine others have.

 

I wouldn’t be quick to say that the final release of JAWS 2018 will not work with ‘Edge in the Fall Creators’ update, as I imagine they are working on that, and, this is, after all, only the first beta.

 

I will say that I like the new installer.  It is self-voicing.  They tell you to press ctrl-p to hear the agreement and it plays an audio file.  Other than that, it is easier to install JAWS, although the time it takes to actually perform the install seems about the same.  I installed it over a previous version of JAWS and did a stand-alone install.  I got the migration wizard automatically and it performed well.

 

Haven’t tried OCR yet.  Got to find some files to try it with.

Mail app, again

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

If you want to have a workaround for viewing your messages, here’s what I do. After reading my first message, I delete it and open the new one. However, I pres uparrow immediately, and it usualy reads the other message fine. If not, some of the previous message will read/the whole thing before moving on … if it does. So, about JAWS 2018, I guess the whole thing’s self-voicing now? That is in the installer portion? Haven’t been able to do research because of school stuff, but I guess I should take a few moments out of my busy day to do so. That’s pretty cool though about the CTRL p for the agreement. I don’t usually read em anyway but press the accept button. Remember about my e-mail-reading steps though and don’t worry about reporting it to VFO unless you really want to.

Subject: JAWS 2018 and Edge

 

I have verified that JAWS2018 works with Edge in the stable Creator’s edition of Windows 10.  I did have the Insider build installed and experienced problems with Edge support, so I reverted back to the stable release.

 

I have also noticed problems with the Windows 10 mail program’s reading pane not updating, such that, when you read your first message, then try to read any additional ones, you still get the first message read to you.  However, the screen shows the right thing.

 

I have reported this, and I imagine others have.

 

I wouldn’t be quick to say that the final release of JAWS 2018 will not work with ‘Edge in the Fall Creators’ update, as I imagine they are working on that, and, this is, after all, only the first beta.

 

I will say that I like the new installer.  It is self-voicing.  They tell you to press ctrl-p to hear the agreement and it plays an audio file.  Other than that, it is easier to install JAWS, although the time it takes to actually perform the install seems about the same.  I installed it over a previous version of JAWS and did a stand-alone install.  I got the migration wizard automatically and it performed well.

 

Haven’t tried OCR yet.  Got to find some files to try it with.

Another 2018 Question

Where is the setting to migrate your settings from Jaws 18?

It didn’t do it during the install.

Hi:

 

Keep in mind this is beta software and they will, no doubt, be tweaking things as the time progresses.  They may have someone lurking on this list, but, just in case, report it using the Beta Report Form at:

 

https://www.freedomscientific.com/Forms/JAWSBetaReport

 

Even something like this can slip by at in a beta cycle.

It just strikes me as strange that a Screen reader developer like VFO would have an installer that requires the use of the touch cursor to read the dialog box if useing Jaws 18 for the install.:)

There is an easier way that I stumbled upon as saving as anything didn’t appear to be an option.

 

I used the application key to bring up the context menu.

Arrowed down to select all and hit enter.

Then, application key again and arrow to copy and hit enter.

Then, go to Word, or whatever editor you wish to use and do control+v to paste.

 

There it is.

In Word, the thing I first tested pasted as a table.

So did the second page, but it is in a list format.  Pasting it into a plain text editor just had lots of extra line breaks.

 

This is not bad.

I hope they end up adding more OCr features like adding pages to a document, etc.

I would think you would save the scan as a jpg file then perform the Jaws OCR on it.  Least that is what worked for me.

My main interest is in the OCr using a flatbed scanner since Openbook does not work on this system and FS seems to have left it in the lurch.

 

I successfully scanned a page with my Cannon LIDE 110 scanner.

However, what can you do with that text once you have done the scan?

 

There doesn’t seem to be any options other than maybe copying and pasting it somewhere, but if that is the case, I’ll just use my iPhone with Seeing AI.

Did you use jaws 18 during the install or let it self voice? It is just when useing Jaws 18 during the install that this happens.

Hi, That is what it did for me.

JAWS told me the status every 25 percent, and it took about ten minutes!

I was able to import my settings from version 18.

One of the new features in JAWS 2018 is the ability to take images directly from scanners and cameras. See the release notes for details.

Hi!

That is what I did as well. Once you save it as a JPG file! Just press applications or shift+F10 and arrow down to recognize with JAWS, and JAWS will bring up a virtual document that you can read, copy from, and perform commands for a virtual document. This is beautiful!
