Hello,

     These are, in order of appearance: your layered command (insert_space+o) for the OCR thingh. After pressing this, you can do a few things; press d for reading the document, s for the screen and w for a window. You know, you can also press the question mark for what’s inside any of the layered commands, right? Need anymore help, feel free to e-mail the group or me at apiccinino@... for private help.

I'm still using 16 (which may reduce the value of my input),
and have used it on 2010, 2013, and 2016.  The JAWS cursors
function like  mouse buttons, and allow you to go outside
the typing area, where angels sometimes fear to tread.

 

As for the learning curve,  take it as  you need it.  focus
on the basic tutorial, which will tell you everything  you
need to get started.  Learn fancy features as you need them.
It's a really slick program with good ergonomics, and runs
with a huge program library

 

When you need it,  you'll love the PDF functionality, which,
when combined with the recent PDF-friendly features in
Office, puts real power on your desktop.  Many, if not most,
offices use this versatile format, and it'll probably mean
you will not have to purchase the full-blown Acrobat
program, which will save either you or your employer a
nickel or two.

Hi Shannon!  JAWS offers a lot of helpful training materials
that are free.  To locate these, navigate to the JAWS Window
by pressing either Alt Tab or Insert plus the letter J.
Insert is also the 0 key on the number pad on a regular
desktop keyboard, provided that your num lock setting is set
to off.  Once you are there, press Alt plus the letter H to
bring up the help menu.  Then you can use the arrow keys to
find the training option.  Press enter to open this menu.
You should land in a table of contents for all of the
training materials.  Depending on how JAWS was installed on
your system, you can either select the particular module you
are wanting to read, or download it.  You can use the arrow
keys to navigate through the page, and find all of the
choices.  I hope this is helpful for you.  Good luck!  I
know that being a new JAWS user can be very overwhelming at
first.  I was there and I haven't forgotten how confusing it
was for me.  I urge you to go through these training
modules.  They will be very helpful to you.  They are guided
as well with audio to listen to, if you don't want to read
the information.

Subject: New user here; JAWs questions and concerns

 

Good morning,

I am a potential new user of JAWS. I would be one of many
conversions from WindowEyes.

I have downloaded the trial of JAWS 18 and pretty concerned
about what it can and cannot do.

I know that there is a large learning curve I will have to
go through, and that is only one of my concerns.

I have been reading the list for the last few days and a few
things mentioned by others concern me.

I also use here at work Office 2010, Outlook, Word and Excel
all the time.

I saw a mention of excel not working well with JAWS? Is that
true? That would be a deal breaker for me.

I use spread sheets every single day to do my job. I also
use on a daily basis the MS Query feature. Will JAWS handle
the queries?

I make mail merge documents frequently and they tie to the
MS Databases.

 

Will Jaws work with outlook 2010? I have over 10 different
email profiles set up and I need access to them.

Does JAWS have a way to search the screen for text or
buttons to be clicked by the mouse or a "HotSpot" feature as
WE did/does? I use that feature everyday along with custom
scripts to get access to the time keeping software programs.

The language in the control panel seams so foreign to me. I
can't tell, but it seems as if Jaws acknowledges 4 kinds of
cursers? A virtual curser, a JAWS curser, PC Curser, and
something called Mouse overlay?

Is the Jaws curser the mouse? What is the Mouse overlay? Can
I read the screen with the mouse?

 

Since I am new and don't know how it works and how to
configure it I can't tell what I can and can't do.

I can tell that many functions of the accounting program,
and the three programs that are involved in time tracking do
not behave well and most likely are going to require special
custom scripts.

Before I spend a lot of money and time I want to know if
Jaws can even do the little stuff like Office and surfing
the web?

If JAWS doesn't like Office 2010 what version does it like?

Thanks for your time.

Shannon

Hi,

Unfortunately, you cannot hear every character sometimes, and just hear words other times. You can only choose between hear characters, words, charactors and words all of the time, or nothing LOL! That would be nice if you could hear just words, but numbers one at a time.

When I have my setting to characters, of course, it will do this, but I

type fast enough that I prefer to use words.  If I type something like

dv-12345, I don't hear the numbers until I press enter, space or

punctuation.

 

For some things, it is not a problem, but when editing numbers, I prefer

to make certain I am entering them correctly, so I prefer to press 1 and

hear 1 and then 2 , hear 2, etc.  I just went back and made another

couple of test changes.  There does not seem to be a way to do what I am

looking for.  Thank you, though, for being so helpful.  Doing these

things are a good way to learn what type of things are found in

different settings and how to use them.

It's not done with the Function keys. It's done with the number two just below the function keys. If you want this to be saved, It's best to use INSERT plus six on the numbers row. Once you make the change, if there's an OK button or an Apply button, that will save the settings.

Don't worry, tab is alive and well.

Tim Ford
 

I was the one who posted that to which you refer, but I was referring to just one situation.  I found that if I kept tabbing, I would miss 2 of the 3 buttons in this particular group.  I just happened to discover that when I tabbed to the first button in the group, tabbing again took me past the group.  Instead, when I was on the first button, 3 of them in a row, the right arrow key was needed.  Other than that, tab is still a primary navigation key.

Amazing! I remember a thread from years ago about the need to maintain left-handed key usage to help avoid

Carpel tunnel problems as in over use and  over emphasis  of the right hand.

Keeping left-handed keystrokes divides  the stress more equally among the  hands.

And that is really important as one ages.

 

If what one wrote  is “true” then

It is stupid to lose the  tabbing ability  as in my opinion using the tab key

Takes my left hand barely off the keyboard as it is a shorter distance and spares the right hand while tabbing.

 

 

If this is true, and we could change it to get the tabbing back,

We should insist with V F O  for the above reasons.

 

Please would some one respond as nonstop typing really puts the stress on the right hand and there are real long term implications.

 

Many thanks.

I have duplicated this behavior on four computers.
Jaws 18, Outlook 2016, when you press enter to read a message, Jaws
begins to read the message, then interrupts itself in the middle of
the message by announcing the number of links, and then will resume
reading the message, or start from the beginning.
Turning off the Link count announcement still results in disrupted
reading of messages, and all preview and other panes have been
completely turned off.
Neither Freedom Scientific or Microsoft Disability Answer Desk had a
resolution to this problem, but I find this highly unsatisfactory.
All other Office 2016 programs seem to work fine, but this issue with
message reading in Outlook 2016 is a real show stopper, at least for
me.

Oh, I understand completely, Mike.

The thing is, though, that Microsoft is increasingly moving toward
subscription services like Office 365. So, eventually, systems like Office
2010 are going to become obsolete and no longer supported.

I find myself railing aginst this trend more and more, because of its
potentially serious accessibility implications for us, but I'm not quite
sure what the best alternative really is at this time.

Will be interesting in the coming years, for sure.

Tom, this is the biggest reason I never signed up for MS 365. I've stayed
with Office 2010 because I can use it easly and don't have to worry about
newer versions and there lack of accessibility with JAWS.
Just my 1.96 cents worth.

Don:

For the most part, I would say that Jaws works reasonably well with Office
365, and particularly with Word and Outlook.

However, I do find that when Office 365 is updated (which turns out to be
fairly frequently), certain functions that used to work properly no longer
do. One recent example in this regard has been the ability to effectively
navigate and edit e-mail groups in Outlook. For some reason, the usual
arrow and other key commands don't seem to work as well as they once did.

I'll be interested in the thoughts of others.

Does Jaws work well with Microsoft Office 365? Mostly concerned about how
well it would work with Word and Outlook.
Thanks

Hi,

Is there a way to get Jaws to say the item number in a list such as
email 32 of 345? I currently have no idea as to how many more email
messages I have to go through this morning, grin. Thank you.

Turning off speech for modifier keys

Scott Wheat
 

Hello all,

 

How do I turn off speech for modifier keys? For example when I press alt-tab, ctrl-tab or windows-d etc. I don’t want to hear it.

I know I have seen this somewhere, but now can’t find it.

 

Thanks for any help.

Re: JAWS scripts

Soronel Haetir
 

Jaws doesn't really have an equivalent to WE apps. Jaws scripting is
really only meant for making existing programs usable, not for
implementing entirely new functionality. And as far as I am aware
there is no central location for finding third-party jaws scripts.
