Pamila and David, this happens quite frequently and hence rebooting or
restarting JAWS would not be a convenient option.
Look forward to other views.

Hi Albert,
 
I've never had an annual subscription so I can't answer your question but, there's 1 way to find out if the latest update will install or not.  Click on the link below to download the latest installer and run it to see if this latest update will install or not.
 
32 & 64 bit download link:
 
https://jaws2021.vfo.digital/2021.2012.57.400/4AD070D7-B284-424D-97A4-85ACBB926A1E/J2021.2012.57.400-any.exe
 
What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2012.57 (January 19, 2021)
This update addresses a few key issues that were reported shortly after the January 2021 release.
To download the latest release, click on the link above
 
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
list of 8 items
• A new feature was introduced earlier this month, designed to let a user change the volume of JAWS speaking or the system volume itself using a layered
keystroke: INSERT+SPACE, V followed by J for JAWS or S for System. Since this change, Eloquence users reported hearing Ticks when reading and typing, especially
around the letter O. We also had reports of the volume randomly changing when reading documents or web pages. These issues are now resolved.
•  Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR was not starting the Voice Assistant in JAWS or Fusion.
• The JAWS voice commands to speak faster or slower now adjusts the speech in larger increments.
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading table headings in Excel.
• Added a new JAWS Dictionary entry for "DocuSign."
• When spell checking a document in Word, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating by word through the text containing
the error.
• Resolved an issue where attachments were not being reported correctly in the Danish version of Outlook 2019.
• In the Italian version of JAWS, addressed an issue where the keystrokes to access the Braille and Text Viewer layer, as well as the Volume layer, were
not working as expected.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Good morning everyone, 

 

I would like too ask the following  question as it relates to the latest Jaws update that someone posted yesterday.  Whenever I go to the jaws updates,  It tells me that I have the latest version of jaws installed which came out in out sometime in mid December, that was jaws 2021. Here’s what I’m wondering.  Both me and my girlfriend are using the version of jaws, where we use the    version that is the lease too own one that we pay a subscription for  every year.  Does it make a differents whether or not     the latest updates for jaws if you own the full license of jaws,  or will the latest version    of jaws that came out yesterday, be installed without any problem. 


moderated Re: How to move quickly down the list of file extensions to change the default?

Mike B
 


Here you go,
 
For Jaws users,I found that you can fast forward & reverse through the, File Types list, by turning Key Repeat on. 
1. To do this, after the file types list is loaded up open the Settings Center with, Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, and if you get a new configuration
message select the, Okay, option and press the spacebar. Arrow down to, User closed, and right arrow to open.
 
2. Down arrow to, Key Repeat not checked, and press the spacebar to check this.
 
3. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.  Now if you hold the Tab key down it will fast forward through this long list of file types and if you
use, Shift + tab, you can go backwards.
It's funny listening to Jaws fast forward through this long files type list because it sounds like fast forwarding a cassette tape.  LOL 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hello List,

 

I’m going through System Settings and using:

   Choose default apps by file type

 

The long list of file extensions are arranged alphabetically. I can move only one extension at a time using the Tab key. These extensions are preceded with the “point” character.

 

Is there a way to jump quickly to the .M3U extension?

I’d like to change it’s default.

Hi Jeff,
I switch between Windows and Linux.
I mostly use Jaws, but NVDA works better in SSH windows, but that may not be the case in windows 10 with its built-in SSH capability.
I use Ubuntu-Mate with the Orca screenreader, and you can get Voxin for about 10 dollars that is the IBM and makes Orca sound like Jaws.
I like running it in a virtual install of Linux so I can switch back and forth with key toggles.
I use VmWare player to run Linux inside Windows.
I recommend 8GB of RAM as a minimum as you will want to dedicate half your RAM to the Linux, although Linux is more forgiving to low RAM than Windows is.

Hi,

Are you talking about Linux? If so, JAWS cannot run on Linux without fundamental alterations. If you are solely interested in command-line tools, Windows Subsystem for Linux 9WSL is the way to go.

Hi Stan,
 
see if the tutorial below will help:
From: Jim Flusche
Windows defender security center.
 
** Now shortened to just Windows security in the W2004update.
 
This file is updated to the W2004 update. 
 
* The security of your computer is the most important program on your computer!
 
*How to use the Windows security program on your computer?
 
*Tip, pin the Windows security program to the Taskbar.
 
How do I do that?
 
Press the windows key, followed by the down arrow, you land in the All Apps list box.
 
Press the letter W, down arrow and highlight, windows  security .
 
Press the applications key, arrow down to more sub menu, right arrow to, pin to Taskbar, press enter.
 
Now the Windows  security program is pinned to the Taskbar, you can skip going directly through the settings area and all the below steps to get to it.
 
*Tip, after pinning it to the taskbar, just press windows key+T, type the letter W, until you hear Windows security, press the Enter key to open it.
 
*Tip, how to go through the settings area to find the Windows security program.
 
Press Windows key+I, you will land in the settings area search edit box, Tab one time.
 
Either press the Right arrow key, or just press the End key to, Update and security, press the spacebar, Tab one time.
 
Down arrow two times to, Windows security , press the spacebar.
 
Tab one time to, open Windows security, Press the Spacebar.
 
*tip, If you have a new computer, you might hear, use Windows security instead.
 
*tip, After you open the Windows security program.
 
On my computer I hear, Virus & threat protectionNo action needed, 1 of 7.
 
** Now with Jaws 2020 I need to Press the Down arrow many times and then I Press the up arrow to see all the catigories under Windows Security.
 
Now Arrow up to Virus & threat protection, you will now hear, 2 of 8, instead of 1 of 7.
 
Press Enter on, Virus & threat protection, my computer says, No threats found, Quick scan Button, Press Enter on quick scan button to start your own  scan
on your computer.
 
When the scan was finished   I herd a chime followed by, a New notification from Windows Security, Windows Defender scan results, Microsoft Defender Antivirus
scanned your device at 6:10:44 PM on ‎7/‎1/‎2020. No new threats were found.
 
*tip, During the scan I Pressed numpad minus followed by Page up a few times, followed by the down arrow to read the progress of the running  scan.‑
 
If you miss the audio notice message, press Windows key+A, down arrow one time, and listen to the action center items, windows security notices should
be the first item.
 
Now to do a full scan, follow the above directions to the quick scan button, this time tab one more time to, Scan options Link, press the spacebar.
 
You land on,  Allowed threats link, Tab to full scan radio button, checked, Tab one time to, Custom scan radio button not checked, Or tab one more time
to Windows Defender Offline scan radio button not checked.
 
Now after what ever radio button you choose, Tab to, the scan now button, press the spacebar.
 
*Tip, if you choose the off line scan, you will hear, save your work, or you may only hear scan now, press the Scan now button again, you will get the
users account notification.
 
Tab to yes, press the enter key.
 
You will hear, signing out, now your computer will begin the restart process while Windows Security does an off line scan.
 
Windows Security will scan your computer during the restart process, when you hear the password or the pin edit box, Windows Security has finished the
off line scan.
 
*tip After you enter your pin or password, the Windows Security window may come up instead of your desktop.
 
When you press enter on the windows security program pinned to the Taskbar, or use it's shortcut windows key+number row position pinned to the Taskbar.
 
In my case, press Windows key+6, will open the windows  security program, you get to skip all the steps in the settings area of W-10 on getting to the
Windows  security program.
 
*How to check the Device performance & health of your computer.
 
Go to Windows  Security.
 
Press the spacebar or enter key on, Device performance & health.
 
Wait for a few minutes.
 
Now either Press the Down arrow, or Tab a few times to, Health report List box.
 
You should hear, Health report List box, Windows UpdateNo issues, 1 of 3
 
Down arrow one time, you should hear, Storage capacityNo issues.
 
Down arrow again, you should hear, Device driverNo issues.
 
* In my opinion the built-in Windows Security program from Microsoft is all you need to keep your computer safe, but if you wish to spend unnecessary money
for another anti-virous program, then go ahead! 
 
The Windows Security program is much easier to use, then it is on trying to explain in a short text file, on how to use the Windows Security program.
 
Well I did my best, I hope I was still able to help some of you, on learning about using the Windows Security program on your computer.
 
* Important,remember The security of your computer is the most important program on your computer!
 
 
Sincerely: Jim Flusche. 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi,

  I have found Defender to be very reliable.  You should have an icon in your notification tray.  You can use the context menu to access “Quick scan”.  From here you can also open the Defender security dashboard.

Access is also available under:

Settings

Tab to Update & Security

Tab to list of items

Select Windows Security

Tab to list of items that you can access and change for Defender.

Hi. Others have given you Vispero's contact information. I'd like to suggest that you continue urging Tally to conform its software to accessibility standards. Vispero can't possibly keep up with every application that presents accessibility problems. The burden is really on the company's programmers and web designers to ensure their product meets these standards.

Dear List Members,


I use an accounting software named "Tally" as part of my job. In November 2020, Tally released an upgraded version named "Tally Prime"
which is completely inaccessible with JAWS. I had communicated to the Tally developers about the inaccessibility of their new version but they have asked me to ask the screenreader developers to make their product accessible.


So, I request the email id for contacting Vispero to seek their assistance in making Tally Prime accessible with JAWS.


Thanking you all in advance for any & all assistance.

That means your language preference setting on facebook is set to french. No doubt this happened accidentally. You’ll have to go into language settings and change it back to english or whatever language you prefer. If you can’t find it, maybe deleting your browser cookies would do it, but I guess since this is happening with all browsers, maybe the setting isn’t cookie-dependent  so this would help nothing.
