Re: Audio Ducking broken in build 2738

 

You find out by reading the “What’s New” on the web page before upgrading. In the case of this Jaws update it says the following:

 

The JAWS Audio Ducking feature, which lowers the volume of other apps while JAWS is speaking, is currently disabled in the Windows 10 Creators update due to issues with JAWS not ducking audio as expected in some situations. We are continuing to work with Microsoft and plan on having Audio Ducking available again in a future update of JAWS, as soon as the necessary changes happen in an update of Windows 10.

 

This is of course just one item out of many, the What’s New outlines all changes not just for Jaws but also changes or new features for other applications.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

 

Below is an explanation of the various Windows Key+number shortcuts, you can add shift, control or alt or a combination of them to achieve various results. I have about 6 apps pinned to the taskbar and this is always 100% reliable for me:

Windows key + number Start the app pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number. If the app is already running, switch to that app.
Windows key + Shift + number Start a new instance of the app pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number
Windows key + Ctrl + Shift + number Open a new instance of the app located at the given position on the taskbar as an administrator
Windows key + Ctrl + number Switch to the last active window of the app pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number
Windows key + Alt + number Open the Jump List for the app pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number

Sieghard

Yes, the apps are pinned to the taskbar. Windows+digit shortcut works,
but it is not reliable. It works roughly 4 out of 5 times. That is my
problem.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter shortcuts open new window of Cygwin or other app. I
need a shortcut to switch to an already running window of Cygwin.

Subject: Jaws script for switching between applications

Hi all,

I am typically running several application: IE, CMD, Cygwin and Visual
Studio. I am looking for a keyboard shortcut to switch to a particular
application.

For example, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut that would
switch me to a cygwin window. I don't want to press Alt-TAB multiple
times and look for the right window in the list of running
applications. I am using braille display, and alt-tabbing takes too
long time. I switch applications often, and I am looking for more
effective way to switch between applications.

For example, I would love to have a script that would sweitch me to
the cygwin window no matter what application is currently active and
no matter how long ago I used cygwin the last time. Then I would love
to assign a keyboard shortcut to this script, something like
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C, for example. And I would have a peace of mind,
knowing that wherever I am, I can always switch to cygwin in just a
single keystroke.

Windows key + numbers. This is what I'm currently using. For example I
have Windows key + 2 switches me to IE. The problem with it is that it
is frustratingly unreliable. They only work about 80% of the times,
and for the remaining 20% they set the focus to the task bar.
Sometimes the success rate goes down even lower than 50%, at which
point I have to reboot my computer. I've had this problem on two
computers, one of which had a brand new windows. By the way, does
anyone else experience the unreliability of this shortcut, or only me?


Alt-tab is NOT what I'm looking for, since it switches to the last
used application. I would like to have one shourtcut for IE, another
for MCD and so on, so that whenever I want to switch to IE I would
press that shourtcut just once. Pressing Alt-tab multiple times
surely can switch me to any running app, but this way is too slow, I
am looking for a more efficient solution.

Insert+f10 is NOT what I'm looking for. The reason is the same as for
alt-tab: it requires finding the right app in the list.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter is NOT what I'm looking for. You can assign this type
of shortcuts in the properties of applications on the desktop. But
that would start a new application instead of switching to an existing
one.

So:
1. Is there a way to make windows key + number keyboard shortcut
more reliable?
Or:
2. Is there a way to assign keyboard shortcuts to specific apps?
Maybe a jaws script or something?

And again, I would like to reiterate what I need. I whish I could
switch to cygwin with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C, and switch to internet
explorer with
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I, and so on.

I am not afraid of hacking, so if there is either a jaws script, or
any other hacky script, that can switch me to a particular application
and that can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut, please let me know.



I'm using the latest Windows 10 and Jaws 17.

Thanks
Tony

I am using JAWS 16 and I think this problem also occurs when using NVDA, so it's not a JAWS 18 only problem. I would imagine users of JAWS 17 are affected also. yes, it's being worked on and I hope the fix comes out soon.

It makes no difference whether the Thunderbird window is maximized or not. If the view is unthreaded JAWS will not read anything in the inbox list of messages. Switched to threaded it behaves normally.

This behavior is not exhibited in NVDA. I did not try Window Eyes nor Narrator, as this is enough to confirm that the issue seems to be tied to how JAWS interacts with unthreaded view in Thunderbird. I would definitely get VFO tech support involved.

Windows Key+A definitely opens action centre. Windows Key+V, is described by Microsoft as "Cycle through notifications, add shift and you cycle backwards. I currently have only one notification and I assume it requires more than one to work.
Here is a very nice website which summarizes all the Windows key shortcuts and also others. Note that it hasn't been updated for Creators Update as it still says Windows Key+Enter opens Narrator and this has now changed to Windows Key+Control+Enter. I found especially the Windows Key+Number keys mentioned of use since I knew Windows Key+Number on the number row would open or go to whatever programm or application you have in that position on the taskbar, but I didn't know that you can also combine shift, alt and control with this for more options and also didn't know the Windows Key+T combination which is useful as it cycles through all your apps on the taskbar.

Here is a link to that Microsoft article and below that are all the shortcuts keys listed on that page, it copied well so I thought I can just paste it in here for easy access:

Subject: Re: jaws and notification center

Hi, I was told by members here that Windows key + V and Windows Key +A should get you to the Notification Center and Action center respectively... But I haven't got Windows key + V to do anything when I hear a notification chime...


Re: jaws and notification center

 

Windows Key+A definitely opens action centre. Windows Key+V, is described by Microsoft as "Cycle through notifications, add shift and you cycle backwards. I currently have only one notification and I assume it requires more than one to work.
Here is a very nice website which summarizes all the Windows key shortcuts and also others. Note that it hasn't been updated for Creators Update as it still says Windows Key+Enter opens Narrator and this has now changed to Windows Key+Control+Enter. I found especially the Windows Key+Number keys mentioned of use since I knew Windows Key+Number on the number row would open or go to whatever programm or application you have in that position on the taskbar, but I didn't know that you can also combine shift, alt and control with this for more options and also didn't know the Windows Key+T combination which is useful as it cycles through all your apps on the taskbar.

Here is a link to that Microsoft article and below that are all the shortcuts keys listed on that page, it copied well so I thought I can just paste it in here for easy access:

Re: Do I need Windows Creator?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

It’s something I might look at if and when I reestablish a home Internet connection.  For a long time I was using dial-up, until upgrading to Win 7.  Of course, I won’t go that way again; downloading Windows on an old-fashioned connection would probably be a weekend project--it would take that long.

Ted,

            I honestly have no idea whether Windows 10 is available on optical media or USB commercially because I have not attempted to find same in ages.  I am now so used to downloading virtually anything, and using a license key purchased to activate same if one is needed, that I don't look for actual installation media.

            The Windows 10 Media Creation Tool will create a bootable USB, if you so choose, as part of downloading the ISO so you don't have any work to do other than plugging in the USB drive (4GB minimum size and empty, or if it's not empty everything on it will be wiped, but I always empty the drive first), telling the Media Creation Tool to make the bootable USB, and walk away until the download completes (or keep working on the computer).

Well, fortunately, spell check is working okay, so at least I don't have to
worry about that. I can use my wife's machine to copy the file off, she's
also running Office 2016.

Hey Les,

I've had this same problem on one of my consumers computers. I finally got
it fixed by copying the same file off a another computer running the
software and the same operating system as far, as 32bit or 64bit. The file
is located in the program files folder. inside the Microsoft office folder,
then the Office16 folder.
You can just open the Office16 folder and paste the copied file. It will ask
admin permission click continue with administrative privileges and the
problem should be resolved.

Subject: Word 2016 Problem

Hi,

I'm wondering if anybody has seen this or can replicate this? Running the
latest build of Windows Creator with latest build of Jaws 18 and latest
build of Office 2016. When wishing to save a file, I really like the
keystroke F12, as it takes me directly to the save as file name prompt.
However, as of today, every time I press that keystroke, Word crashes. The
error is in Winword.exe. It also crashes without Jaws running. I spent a
couple of hours on the phone with a very helpful and organized Microsoft
rep. He did an online repair of Office, which essentially uninstalled and
re-installed the product as he explained it. No change. I ran a System
File Checker on Windows which came back with no errors. He's escalated this
to a higher level of support and I'm awaiting a response. For now, I'm
staying away from that command and using Ctrl-S. Thanks for any
comments/suggestions/reports.

I've noticed this with my desktop shortcuts also... alt + ctrl +t for thunderbird only works part of the time... This started with the last update for Creators...

use WinActivate: Take a look at this thread: https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/40435-want-to-switch-to-a-program-with-a-keystroke/
