Bonnie,

             Unless you have a laptop that does not have a keyboard that includes a number pad, I would avoid using laptop layout if you're not used to it.  The main reason (at least in my opinion) for the existence of laptop layout is that it was once far more common than it is now for a laptop keyboard to have no number pad.  But if yours has got one, use desktop layout instead.

moderated Lenovo laptop and function keys

Bonnie Vegiard
 

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the feedback last week on my new Lenovo laptop and function keys. I was able to get someone to change the operating system so that the function keys are no longer mapped the way they were originally. Now my alt F4 does work, but none of the other function keys seem to work automatically. Can anyone help me with next steps to get the function keys to map to the jaws commands?


I am also not used to the laptop layout. Yesterday when I set up my Outlook 365 account, it wanted a password, and then the laptop told me that the caps lock key was engaged. So I am not sure if the password I typed in wasin caps OR not, but it looks like when I try to put in that password, it is not working no matter what I try. I need to know what I am typing in using the laptop layout, whether it is caps or not. Thanks!

Bonnie

Hello List,

 

I am new to Outlook 365.  My list of favorites does show up as a sighted person can see them.  When I used Outlook 2010 I could access my favorites by tabbing from my list of messages.  How do I maneuver to the favorites folder?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi Madison,

To add a forwarding address in GMail (instructions copied from https://support.google.com/mail/answer/10957?hl=en-GB):

  1. On your computer, open Gmail using the account that you want to forward messages from. You can only forward messages for a single Gmail address, not for an email group or alias.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then See all settings. 
  3. Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  4. In the "Forwarding" section, click Add a forwarding address.
  5. Enter the email address that you want to forward messages to.
  6. Click Next and then Proceed and then OK.
  7. A verification message will be sent to that address. Click the verification link in that message.
  8. Go back to the settings page for the Gmail account that you want to forward messages from and refresh your browser.
  9. Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  10. In the 'Forwarding' section, select Forward a copy of incoming emails to.
  11. Choose what you want to happen with the Gmail copy of your emails. We recommend that you Keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox.
  12. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.
GMail is pretty accessible, but if those instructions don't work for you with JAWS let me know and I'll try to put something together more specific.

Jim

In Chrome that would definitely be my preferred way to get to Extensions as well.

moderated Re: How do I view extensions in chrome?

 

In Chromium based browsers, you can also enter the browser name, followed by colon double forward slash, followed by where extensions falls for that browser.  It's fast if you keep a list.

For example:
chrome://extensions

edge://extensions/

vivaldi://extensions

brave://settings/extensions  (brave nests extensions under its settings hierarchy, while the others have extensions as a standalone group)

Hi Jessica,
 
Well, the quickest way I know of is, Alt + F, then press the letter, L, then press the letter, E, and this put you in your list of extensions.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi,

 

I’m using jaws2021 with the latest version of chrome.

 

I’m trying to figure out how to view what exstentions I have installed.

 

I’m aware that this can be accomplished through the menu, but that’s a lot of steps.

 

Is there a way to do it with less keystrokes?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Hi, Jessica. As far as I know, the only way to view extensions is,

 

1. Open Chrome.

2. Press ALT plus F, followed by S for Settings.

3. TAB once, and arrow down to the "Extensions" link, and press ENTER.

moderated Sharing Talking Clock Script for Jaws translated into Spanish

Leo
 

Hello guys and gals,

I have successfully translated completely the talking clock script into Spanish. This script was written by David Truong and  Andrew Hart.

I was able to find the problem after one member of the Jaws list suggested Microsoft Word to encode the Spanish characters that had not been properly encoded by notepad.

I share the compressed package containing not only the scripts properly translated into Spanish but also the read me file, just in case someone here knows people that might take advantage of this.

All updates for the same version number are free. So if you are using 2020 then the December 2020 Jaws update is free.

What's new in this build:

Enhancements in J2020.2012.13.40.

 

The following is a list of improvements made between the August 2020 release and the December 2020 update.

 

You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

 

list of 15 items
• In the 2020 December Update, we have included a fix that will help users of ZoomText and Fusion in the future when they uninstall that version yet continue
to use later versions. There was a problem in earlier 2020 versions where it was impacting shared components with other versions such as the most recent
release. We encourage anyone who still has the 2020 versions installed, to please update  now even if you are not currently using it.
• Fixed a long-standing issue in File Explorer where JAWS would often not announce the correct number of files in the current folder.
• JAWS now properly reads as expected in Skype when moving focus back to the app without the need to first press ALT and ESC.
• When launching the Skype app included in Windows 10, JAWS now loads the correct settings files.
• While in a Zoom meeting, you can now press CTRL+SHIFT+T to find out who is currently talking. Zoom recently added this option with CTRL+2 but we were
previously using it for a JAWS feature.
• Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
• Resolved an issue when selecting all text (CTRL+A) in  a large Word document. This action would cause JAWS to hang for several seconds.
• Addressed an issue in Word documents where JAWS was not announcing indentation increments when pressing TAB.
• Resolved an issue in Excel where JAWS was not reading the selected item in various combo boxes in the Font dialog box.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the Auto  Complete options in the Chrome Address bar.
• Addressed an issue where same page links were not always working as expected in Chrome or Edge Chromium.
• Added five new Japanese voices to the Add/Remove Voices utility, which allows you to sample and download Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices for use with JAWS,
ZoomText, and Fusion.
• Resolved an issue with navigating to the configuration editor in Thunderbird Email when running JAWS or Fusion.
• Addressed reports of JAWS performance issues encountered after accessing the Start menu multiple times.
• Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
list end


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
