Re: How do I lock the Insert key?

Carolyn,
That is brilliant!
I don't know the persons key board but mine is different again.
My second insert key is not in the six pack. I don't have six keys in that grouping. My delete key is the size of two keys. My second insert is directly right of the F12 key in the function keys row.
Just if that helps at all.
My second insert key works just like yours. And my two keys are right next to each other for that JAWS feature Time and Date.
Shannon

This is Carolyn here, and I took my left hand first, then my right. With each, I used my thumb to press the Insert Key on the six pack and my index finger to press F12 twice, and it gave me Wednesday, July 5 and the time. The Insert on my six pack and the Arrow keys with my keyboard work in JAWS for me - JAWS 18; Windows-10; Outlook 2013.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi Carol,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, your suggestion does not solve my problem. Imagine you only have one hand and you can only press one key at a time. How can you lock the JAWS key so you can press F12 twice quickly to hear the date?

Good morning All,
I was just playing around with the OCR in JAWS.
When the results of the OCR are completed and I hear the phrase" Finished JAWS"

Please correct me. I am thinking that that means that the JAWS curser is going to be the curser and the voice that will be reading the result?
If I am right, why is the voice that reads this back not the voice that I have set for the JAWS curser?
The voice that reads it back is really super low in pitch. Much different than that I have set up for Any curser much less than the JAWS curser.
So Who is reading this back?
And, can I change that voice?
I was using  the OCR on a window if that makes a difference.

Thanks a lot
Shannon

Hi All,

i'm working at a company which has recently updated from Jaws 13 to Jaws
18 and we are currently facing an issue with the new Software.

1)Once you insert a table in word and try to undo the step with
crtl+y(crtl+z in our case) it is not being removed, but highlighted
instead. You have to hit the shortcut several times until it finally
gets removed. This issue is not present working with Jaws 13. Can anyone
confirm this behavior or maybe advise if there is a workaround available
or anything else we could try.

2)How do i get Jaws to read the current formatting of an excel cell? I'm
not a Jaws expert yet and i think i'm doing something wrong. Cannot get
it working with Jaws 13 either.

Thanks,

Mat

Re: How do I lock the Insert key?

Angel
 

I use one hand to press both the insert and the f 12 key. In fact, the reason I was given Jaws in 97 was because, at that time it was the most single handed friendly screen reader available . If your client has all his fingers, he can use his thumb to press the insert, and his small finger to press the f 12. I use these fingers to determine the time and date.

Re: How do I lock the Insert key?

I recall there was a simple modification for the default scripts that
combined the announcement of the time followed by the date after
pressing insert+f12 once but can't find how to do it. it may also be
done differently for different versions of JAWS; I don't know.
these days it isn't recommended to mess with the shared default script
source but there must be a way. maybe someone more knowledgeable will
provide what to do, step by step.

The insert keys can both be set to act as Jaws keys.
Press Insert f6,
Press control-shift-d to make this the default setting, type the word "insert" in the search box, tab once, down arrow until you find extended keys and make sure that is checked Tab to OK and press enter to save the new setting.

Hi, on a standard keyboard There is an insert key between the print screen key and the F12 key. It is functionally identicle to the Numpad 0 or insert key. It can be reached with either hand.
I can reach almost all of the F keys with one hand using this key. Assumeing he has his thumb and pinky finger.

Thank you everybody for your instructions on clearing cache and cookies …… I followed the steps and seemed to be successful but don’t know how to tell for sure.

 

I can now enter my user name and password on FB but when I press log in it wants me to verify my identity.  That would be okay but the only choice it gives me is to match photos with names of my friends …… That just won’t work since I can’t see the photos (ugh).  FB says there are four different ways to verify my identity but it’s only giving me the identify photo choice.  I’ve reported this problem to FB through the help accessibility center but have not heard back from them …… Not sure that I will either.

 

Anybody got any thoughts or ideas on this problem with accessibility and Facebook?
