My spelling was atrocious. The native app for IOS, I could never master, Win live or all other other programs such as Gmail or Muzzella did not meet my needs.

Grammarly is supposedly much more comprehensive and so forth than what MS Word currently offers. That said, stayed tuned – I just saw a press release from MS about all the new features that are coming, including a powerful grammar checking and editing utility called “Microsoft Editor” that will be  as powerful as Grammarly at least. I think it’s a mistake to use those programmes myself, or maybe it’s just a personal thing for me, but hey, I guess if you feel it’s what you need, go to it. Anyway, the new mS app will be available with new editions of Office 365 and also downloadable as an extension for Edge and Chrome.

I have office 365 with a built in spell checker which checks my spelling and grammar all the time when sending a message via email or even face book.  Subsequently, David why would you need Grammarly? Oh, I’m using JAWS 2020. With windows 10. I’ve not mastered using the iPhone to check my spelling, no matter what program I was using.

Sieghard,

That is really interesting.  I’ll watch for such a use. I’m still not very savvy with mouse over elements, so the fuller picture you painted is helpful.

As Dean pointed out, it is primarily useful in connection with the mouseover keystroke. If, for example, I log into my credit card processor’s portal I have items like “Administration”, “Terminal”, “Reports” etc.

These items are mouseover links which means that if a sighted person hovers over, for example, “Terminal” then they see a new menu pop up further down on the screen with things like “Purchase”, “Refund”, “Void” etc.

If I press enter on any of them nothing at all happens, but if I use the Jaws Key + Control + Enter keystroke to activate the mouseover link, Jaws will say “change at line 9”

I then immediately press “J” and follow this by 9 and enter, Jaws will go to line 9 and now if I down arrow I can see and access all the options which have appeared there.

I find many websites use such mouseover links and in some cases they are properly labelled and Jaws will announce them as mouseoever, in other cases it may just say “link” or possibly nothing at all to identify what it is, but if I press enter on something and nothing apparently happens I always try the mouseoever link keyboard shortcut.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

The big reason that was instituted is to support the OnMouseOver keystroke, ctrl+shift+enter. When you use that keystroke on an OnMouseOver element, if JAWS detects a change, it will say, “Change at line xx.” So you use J and type that line number to see if the change is of any benefit. 

 

I hadn’t thought of using that feature as a sort of place marker replacement. I don’t know how many line numbers I could retain at my age!

Do not follow my steps if you don't have a MyExtensions file in the ENU
folder! As a matter fact, don't follow my steps at all! It's been a
long time since my, myExtensions.jss, file was created and I know I'm
missing some steps that are crucial to creating this file!

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!
I didn't stop shaking hands because of, COVID-19, I stopped because
noone can buy toilet paper!
But, good news! Due to the hording of toilet paper the LA Times is
temporarily changing it's name to: The Daily Wipe!

it is not recommended to append your scripts to the default scripts
anymore. instead, write them in the my extensions.jss file (actually,
the file name does not have a space between my and extensions.).

the following are two responses about this by Mike B:

When I add a script to My Extensions I do it manually because other info
regarding the script needs to be added as well, then I put the whole
file into the default and compile. I can't explain this very well, but
I'll send this message to someone that can. In the meantime there's a
download link below for 2 tutorials regarding the My Extensions & scripts.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vawsaear5lvks02/My%20Extensions%20Tutorials%2C%202%20Parts.zip?dl=1

Here's a little better explanation. When I want to add or modify a
script I do the following.
1. Open the Jaws Manager, with, Insert + F2, & open the Scripts Manager.
2. With the Script Manager open press, Alt + F, for the file menu &
press the letter, E, to open the Shared File folder, shift + tab into
the list of shared folders, & navigate to the, My Extensions JSS file.
3. Open the My Extensions JSS file, press, Control + A to select all the
contents, then paste the contents of the clipboard into Notepad. In
Notepad is where I do all my editing and when I get all my editing done,
I copy all the content of the Notepad text to the clipboard, then I use
the steps from #2 above to go back to the My Extensions.JSS file, open
it and delete the contents, Paste my edited text, and now compile. This
way my default JKM file stays
in tact and now the same keystroke opens the menu list without screwing
with the default JKM file that's already in place.

Hello!

I want to write some scripts for JAWS, then share them with others.
These scripts shall work with all applications, but I don’t want to
break other peoples customizations, so putting this in the default file
is out of the question. What else can I do?

Hi. Using jaws 2020 , nvda 2019.3 windows 10 64 bit pro. On a assus laptop. Doing a network course from http://www.upskilled.edu.au. Got a free dedicated server for assignments  from http://www.heropa.com. But only for assignments and assessments. As their web tool is totally unuser friendly and not accessible. Looking to rebuild. So looking for a free vm. Did sign up for the vmware workstation education, but was rejected my application. Not sure. And also listening to videos from http://www.pluralsight.com and from http://www.linedinlearning.com. Vm ware player, asks for me to turn off credential guard manager and security settings, if people are familiar with that. Now, tried that and when trying to install windows server 2016 iso, could not turn that feature off. In vritual box, no way to turn the audio on, and it kept either crashing or powering off. Hyper v manager the same. So can any one doing a networking course, let me know. And Microsoft azure, trying to set up a free student account, would not recognize my landline voip phone. Don’t have a mobile phone, credit card, paypal. And now, any one got any good recommendations for a free, accessible vm, that will work with jaws, nvda, windows narrator. And able to then install such server os as windows server 2008 r2, 2012, 2016, docker, etc.

Any ideas or help. Want to get my hands dirty and learn how to install, configure and use networking. Any one got any ideas or in the same boat. My college does not have a dedicated online server. Doing this online and with about 11 other sighted students.

Any ideas. Help.

Thanks.
