Hi Leo,

You can get the Grammarly add-in from their website itself. Adding the link below and steps on how to activate it in your MS Word.
https://www.grammarly.com/office-addin/windows 

To activate Grammarly, open MS Word and navigate to File > Options > Add-ins > Under Manage select COM Add-ins > Check Grammarly > Click OK. 

Hope this helps

I have also tried saving the whole email message as a pdf by selecting Microsoft print to PDF on in the printer dialog box.  Then I use JAWS OCR on a pdf or Kurzweil 1000 to scan it.  Sadly, many of these images are so graphics rich that the scan is hit or miss. I might call AIRA or Be My Eyes on it if I think it’s really important.

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

Weird, but try hitting alt to bring up the menus and then hitting it again to make them go away, that seems to let jaws start working with the content.


Loook in the options for a setting about page turn animations, make sure it is off.  When on, jaws commands don't work, when off they do.

Here's what the dialogue should read:
 
This check box allows you to enable or disable automatic language detection. If you select this check box, JAWS detects changes in languages within documents which support language tags and then reads using the appropriate synthesizer voice for that language.
For example, if JAWS finds Spanish text on a Web page, that text is spoken using a Spanish voice. This detection only affects those synthesizers,
such as Eloquence or Vocalizer Expressive, that support multiple languages.
If you clear this check box, JAWS does not change the voice of the synthesizer when reading text written in another language.
By default, this option is checked in all applications except Microsoft Outlook.

from the Speech History, the following is what JAWS says about my default configuration:

Text Processing
General

Detect Languages checked
This check box allows you to enable or disable automatic language detection. If you select this check box, JAWS detects changes in languages within
documents which support language tags and then reads using the appropriate synthesizer voice for that language.
For example, if JAWS finds Spanish text on a Web page, that text is spoken using a Spanish voice. This detection only affects those synthesizers,

If you clear this check box, JAWS does not change the voice of the synthesizer when reading text written in another language.
By default, this option is checked in all applications except Microsoft Outlook.

Detect Keyboard Language checked
Use the options in this group to control overall speech behavior.

so the description for Detect Keyboard Language should be the same for Detect Languages? the original question was about the label for Detect keyboard language being correct...

so, is it correct? and if not, what should it be and is there a way to correct (edit) the description?

there is 3 different ways to get to the book mark list. each method

there is control shift b, this one closes the list as soon as you

control i opens the entire list of links and you have the option to
search the entire list. it stays opened until you close it again
with
control i.
but as i said both jaws and window eyes will hang when you open the
bookmark list unless you turn off the virtual cursor first. or

also the virtual cursor will turn back on every time you leave the

did you turn off the internet connection as soon as you re installed it?
if you don't it will upgrade you as soon as you open it.
you have to leeve your internet connection off until you turn off
automatic updates and i also turn off the background services i
think its called. this is in the same advanced settings area.

This is rather strange, since I can run it fine on this machine with
Windows XP, same version (52.6.0), but I can't seem to run it on my
Windows 7 machine since February 14 of this year. Before then, it
was working fine. When I reinstall it, it automatically tries
updating to Firefox 60, and I don't understand why, because I've
turned off updates to Firefox. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Here's a download link for the 2 audio tutorials on the My Extensions file and 1 audio tutorial on how to create an Interactive Menu list from the My Extensions file.  Very informative.

Mike, what version started using the myextensions method of adding
personal extensions instead of appending the default jss file, was it
version 18?

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!

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?

Here are the commands for Convenient OCR which I got by pressing insert+spacebar, then o then QuestionMark.

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

 

And, in case this is needed, the Picture Smart commands are:

The following commands are available in the Picture Smart layer.

Acquire and describe an image from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.

From Windows Explorer, you can describe any image file using the letter F.

From the computer screen or application, you can describe a Control with the letter C.

An image on the clipboard can be described using the letter B.

An image can be described by saving it to the "PictureSmart" directory in your User's "Pictures" folder.

No, this started back around Jaws13, 14 or 15, but I believe it was 13.
