Re: Windows 10, JAWS 17 and sluggishness

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Windows 10, Office 2013, JAWS 17 - crippling around this
morning, signed out, finally ended up having to turn off at
the unit, ended up, when it came back on in Disk Clean up.
Since I've had my computer for a year and have not done
that, I checked everything except the Recycle Bin and let
her rip. Now, all seems to be OK.

Bye for now,

Hi,
Thank you all for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I'm not
sure that this is doable. As was stated it takes hours to
get everything back. My husband would have to do that and
right now he does not have hours to do it.

I ran across someone else who mentioned that I could turn
off things working in the background that I don't need or
use. Would this help? If so, how would I do this? And how do
I know what is what so I don't accidentally turn off
important stuff to the programs I am running which are
Outlook, Word, JAWS, Openbook, Humanware Companion, Adobi
Internet Explorer, and AVG. I think that is all of them.

I had similar issues and ended up doing a clean install of
Windows 10 which helped a lot. It's a big job as it means
reinstalling all your programs and potentially some drivers
so not to be taken lightly. Having said that although
Internet Explorer 11 is working better it still freezes and
crashes from time to time. One day I'll get around to
installing another browser.
That's certainly a less drastic step than reinstalling

Hi,
I'm first off having trouble learning Windows 10, made worse
by the recent upgrade that changed several things I was
doing, but my computer and JAWS often seems very slow in
responding. In particular, I'm having trouble getting JAWS
to stay talking or in some cases with IE 11 to be able to
use the JAWS cursor at all.

I know this is a little vague, well, maybe a lot, but I'm
not sure what specific question to ask because I don't
really know what's causing these issues. Does anyone have
any suggestions as to how I can get JAWS to work more
consistently and get rid of some of the stuff running in the
background? And what should I get rid of?

I've only recently upgraded to it so any help would be
appreciated.

Hi there,

 

Hi there,

 

I’m hoping someone can help direct me with something I might be doing wrong regarding computers and Bluetooth devices.

I’m trying to remove two Bluetooth devices from my computer.  I can pair them with no problem, but for some reason, removing them is a different story. I’ll tell you what I’m doing.

I am using Windows 10 and JAWS. 

From the start menu, I find and go to Bluetooth settings.

Bluetooth is turned on, so there’s no problem there. 

I tab to where I find a list of the Bluetooth devices associated with my computer, arrow down to what I want, and select it by hitting enter.

It lets me know it’s been selected, and I tab once to find the Remove device button.  I hit enter on it, and immediately, I get something that says Flyout Window, and I read nothing else on the screen.

I alt-tab back to the Bluetooth settings, look at my list again, and find that the item I tried removing is still there.

I did try rebooting my computer, and everything is the same.

 

What is a Flyout window?  And, why won’t the Enter or spacebar work when I use them on the Remove device button?  It’s frustrating.

 

If anyone has any good tips, please let me know.

Thanks.

To view the devices available in Windows 10 follow these steps:


Open Settings.

Click Devices.

The settings related to devices are shown.

Click Connected Devices.

A list appears showing all the devices that are connected to your Windows 10
computer or device.

Click Bluetooth, if it's available.

You see a list of Bluetooth devices that are available in the area. They may
or may not be connected to your computer.

Click Printers & Scanners.

A list appears showing all the printers and scanners that are installed on
your computer.


Remove installed devices

If you no longer need to use a device, you can remove it. When you do so,
your Windows 10 computer can't interact with the device until you connect
and
install it again. Here's how to remove connected devices from Windows 10:


Open Settings.

Click Devices.

The settings for devices appear.

Click the device type you want to remove (Connected Devices, Bluetooth, or
Printers & Scanners).

The list of devices appears.

Click the device that you want to remove to select it.

Click Remove Device.

Click Yes to confirm that you want to remove this device.

Re: jaws 18 release?

Cristóbal
 

V18 sounds like a major  snoozer. Frustrating that an SMA  will  be used up on the upgrade, but oh well.

I’ve been writing FS for a while now requesting enhanced  multilanguage support. I.E. the ability to designate a URL, domain, email  address, document/folder path etc to a particular voice profile. For those of us who  work and interact in different languages, this would streamline a lot of things. Having Jaws seemlessly transition to Spanish when  visiting a website with the .mx .ar .es or German  for example with the .de or have a particular email address for contacts or mailing lists associated with a language voice profile would be great and a more natural  flow to things. Things have gotten better from the old days, but even then, the control+window key+ L command is still clunky and disruptive.

Something like this can’t be terribly  difficult to figure out as some of the elements are already present in jaws. Dictionary manager, Flexible Web and so on.

Oh well, I guess  we’ll keep on keeping on.

Hi Ken,

 

You may want to listen to Jonathan's most recent FS Cast where he is talking to Eric Demry from Freedom Scientific about what is new in Jaws 18. Also, another Podcast you would want to check out is one on Blind Cool Tech where I think it was James Oats demonstrates Windows 10 Anniversary update and the Edge browser with Windows Narrator. Narrator is becoming a more mature screenreader and apparently you can use Edge with it with some efficiency although I haven't tried it yet. According to the Podcast NVDA is going to release an update in October which works quite well with Edge but Jaws is still having problems getting it to work and it is my understanding that this is not a major new feature in Jaws 18. In fact, Jaws 18 is probably one of the least impressive updates in my view so far. As far as running the beta I would definitely encourage you to try it because I find Jaws betas by the time they become betas usually work pretty well and the nice thing is that you are not limited to Jaws 18 Beta. If you are running Jaws 17 or 16 you can install the beta without ill effect and if you find something doesn't work as expected you can simply unload the Beta with Insert+F4 and use whatever hot key you may setup to load your previous version of Jaws. It's not like running the beta of an operating system where it's all or nothing.

Sieghard

Hello, everyone.

 

I just received a faculty Emeriti news letter from my University.  The letter is accessed via a link that was included in an e-mail.

 

I can open the news letter with no problem, but when I start reading it, Jaws says clickable at the end of every line.

 

Obviously, this makes for an anoying reading experience.

 

I have received news letters from this organization before, and have not had this problem.

 

Is there something I can do to turn this “clickable” announcement off, or could it be something in the way the news letter was sent and formatted?

 

I’m using Jaws 17, Windows 7, and Firefox as my main internet browser.

 

Thanks for any advice!

Re: How To Stop Jaws From Saying Clickable At The End Of Every Line In A PDF Document

Bill:

 

I saved the PDF document, and then read it separately, and it became much more readable.

 

There were still some formatting issues, but at least I didn’t get the word “clickable”  at the end of every line.

 

Thanks for the tip, although it is disturbing that the document can’t be read on line via Firefox any more.

Hi, Tom. Is there any way you can save the document instead of reading it online? Often you can tab to the link with Firefox, do a Save Link As, and save the pdf. Maybe if you read it with Adobe Reader or another pdf viewer, it will be rendered in a more acceptable manner.

Bill:

 

When I do insert T, I just get the title of the news letter, followed by Mozilla Firefox.

 

I’m beginning to wonder if it is something with the document.

 

I tried opening the link  with Internet Explorer 11, and couldn’t get beyond the Open parent document window.

 

When I hit enter or the spacebar on that window, Jaws says page 1, but I can’t seem to advance from there.

Hi, Tom. Maybe when your document is open, you could do an Insert plus T to get the title of the document being read, and the program reading it.

Bill:

 

I honestly don’t know the answer to your question.

 

How do I find this out?

 

The news letter is being read by a PDF document reader of some sort.

 

The strange thing is that I didn’t have this problem with previous editions of the same news letter.

Hi, Tom. What application is reading the pdf document? If it is being rendered by something other than Firefox, You may need to open the pdf, and turn off element attributes in the application which is rendering the pdf document. I can't tell you how to do this, since I don't know what application is being used to read the pdf. Also, I probably don't have that application anyway.

Bill and all:

 

I tried these instructions, with no luck.

 

The news letter still reads very awkwardly, with Jaws saying “clickable at the end of every line.

How to stop JAWS from saying "clickable" on websites

 

 

Hi, Tom. Open Firefox.

In

"Settings Center"

under the

"Web / HTML / PDFs"

category, there is a subcategory labeled

"Miscellaneous"

Under

"Miscellaneous"

there is a setting labeled

"Indicate Element Attribute"

Unchecking this setting will stop Jaws from saying

"Clickable"

Hello, everyone.

 

I just received a faculty Emeriti news letter from my University.  The letter is accessed via a link that was included in an e-mail.

 

I can open the news letter with no problem, but when I start reading it, Jaws says clickable at the end of every line.

 

Obviously, this makes for an anoying reading experience.

 

I have received news letters from this organization before, and have not had this problem.

 

Is there something I can do to turn this “clickable” announcement off, or could it be something in the way the news letter was sent and formatted?

 

I’m using Jaws 17, Windows 7, and Firefox as my main internet browser.

 

Thanks for any advice!

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Problem with Outlook view in Office 365

Tom Behler
 

Diana:

 

I had a similar issue several weeks ago, when I became unable to get to my Outlook 2016 folder list via the usual shift tab command.

 

Try shift F6 when in your message list , and see if that helps you.

 

This suggestion came up on one of the Jaws liss, and has worked reasonably well for me.

 

Another thing I would suggest is that you call Freedom Scientific about this issue.

 

I was told that Microsoft and FS are aware of the issue, but the more we remind them of it, the more likely it will get resolved.

 

I’m not sure how helpful this is, but I want you to know you are not alone.

Subject: Problem with Outlook view in Office 365

 

Sorry if this topic is somewhere in the archive, I looked but couldn’t find anything.

 

Outlook was working fine on my Surface in Windows 8, Classic Shell, Office 365 with JAWS 17 until recently. I had a list of all of my mailboxes which I could access by pressing Enter, Once in the box, I could tab once, then move up and down through the message list, and press Enter on any message I wanted to open. Not sure what I have done but now I see no mailboxes, I have a list of messages from my default inbox, which I can open, but I can’t get to any other boxes. My husband can see my list of boxes in the left pane, but I am stuck in the right one and there is a tab that says all mailboxes and a search box, and my list of messages. I have tried to play around with Views but have only made things worse, and can’t seem to find anything in the JAWS Help files that changes things. I am suspecting that things changed after an update, but can’t confirm.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
