Hi again – different problem from feedback loop issue. I have shortcuts on my desktop to several folders. I find it is the quickest way to get to regularly visited folders. They haqppen to be DropBox folders, but I don’t think that should matter. The problem is that when I open the folder from the desktop, Jaws says nothing. I would expect the focus to land on the first item in the item list and Jaws would say “unselected” followed by the name of the item. But it doesn’t say anything. I have to arrow down or say line to figure out where I am. This just started happening on this new laptop I’m using, Lenovo Think pad P53 running Windows 10 and Jaws 2020. I think it also happened with Jaws 2019. Thoughts? Thanks.

Hi. I regularly use both Teams as well as Slack for work. Both are
accessible but, of the two, Teams is most definitely way ahead of Slack when
it comes to screen reader support. Teams does have its quirks and does need
some improvement but it's overall quite usable.

If you're interested I run two lists, one for users of Teams and another for
users of Slack. At the moment they are very low traffic.

Feel free to subscribe to both or one of them as your needs dictate and as
your time allows. I would respectfully ask that any questions related to
these programs not be sent to me privately as I may not have the time to
respond in a timely manner and I am not an expert in all aspects of these
programs.

Here are the email addresses for subscribing.

1. Zoom is a web conference application for meetings. The company is

2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration. I know it's
used within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for
ongoing projects. I suspect it's Microsoft's version of Zoom, with
additional features, but I'm not fully sure.
3. Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings. I just
started using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with
multiple people. I don't think of it as a tool businesses would use to
present a slideshow, but I'm still new. Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you
are talking about is more for that. Hangouts and the link you shared are
both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom. When I go to the link
you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google's version of Zoom. I
haven't seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but
others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I'm
optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible. If you run into trouble
with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from
within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google
Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.

We all empathize. This is a crazy learning curve we are all on to adjust

2.      In the search box where yu land, type in “level” minus the quotes.

3.      Down arrow to Outline level indication and uncheck the check box.

moderated Re: question about audio feedback loop when using Zoom

Amy Bower
 

Thanks for suggestions. A couple more thoughts. I heard from Zoom accessibility, and I agree with their assessment (so far) that this is not a screen reader issue, nor is it a dialogue box initiated by Zoom. It is a system-generated message that would probably arise with any video/audio conferencing application. Also, I actually don't hear any feedback - the message about the feedback just pops up. I did some texting last night, and found that I could reproduce the problem when I talked loudly. I have a loud voice anyway (especially when I get animated about a subject), which may be why I'm getting this message and other users are not getting it that much. I've been messing around with the microphone and speaker settings on my Lenovo a little bit, mostly without knowing what I'm doing, with no definitive positive result. My work around for now is to use my Bos Sport headphones, but use the laptop mic (and not the built-in mic on the Bos headphones). This can all be configured in the Zoom audio settings. Can't do this though when doing a family group Zoom, where multiple family members are all using my laptop. Maybe I could achieve the same success if I attached some external speakers to the laptop and set them at some distance away.  If you see references to this feedback issue, don't hesitate to send them my way! Thanks.

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install
additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install
additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.
Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used
with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a
Windows 10 machine.
Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Hi. I regularly use both Teams as well as Slack for work. Both are
accessible but, of the two, Teams is most definitely way ahead of Slack when
it comes to screen reader support. Teams does have its quirks and does need
some improvement but it's overall quite usable.

If you're interested I run two lists, one for users of Teams and another for
users of Slack. At the moment they are very low traffic.

Feel free to subscribe to both or one of them as your needs dictate and as
your time allows. I would respectfully ask that any questions related to
these programs not be sent to me privately as I may not have the time to
respond in a timely manner and I am not an expert in all aspects of these
programs.

Here are the email addresses for subscribing.

1. Zoom is a web conference application for meetings. The company is
Zoom.
2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration. I know it's
used within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for
ongoing projects. I suspect it's Microsoft's version of Zoom, with
additional features, but I'm not fully sure.
3. Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings. I just
started using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with
multiple people. I don't think of it as a tool businesses would use to
present a slideshow, but I'm still new. Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you
are talking about is more for that. Hangouts and the link you shared are
both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom. When I go to the link
you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google's version of Zoom. I
haven't seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but
others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I'm
optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible. If you run into trouble
with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from
within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google
Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.

Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine.

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

That's exactly right. Just to add to this you can then press the letter K or shift+K to move to the next or previous placemarker, respectively.

Hello Group,

 

To clarify my post from earlier today,I am looking to recover a fairly extensive playlist that is no longer in my Itunes library, stored on my Windows Pc.

What I want to do is to access a library from some months ago before the playlist was deleted, though how it got deleted is an Itunes mystery, or fault of the program.

Again, if there is anyone who can assist in this recovery, I would appreciate your help.

 

Best, Justin

moderated Recovering iTunes playlists

Justin Mcdevitt
 

Hello Group,

 

My iTunes music library and playlists are stored on my Pc with some playlists accessible on my iPhone.

iTunes has its flaws, as some of you would attest : one of which is that on occasion playlists disappear from my library, though the songs in these playlists are still there and intact.

There are also occasions, (as recently, when playlists disappear as well.

To counter these events, I have begun to back-up my music library and playlists: a recent decision and a good one.

However, before I started backing up my library, a playlist and the songs in it were deleted or disappeared.

I believe there is a way to recover songs in iTunes for Windows, (and I’m not sure about the correct word to use here), by identifying past iterations, (say from two or three months ago, when the playlist would have been in my library.

There was one tech who worked with the Apple Accessibility online support center who helped me to recover a playlist when this happened a year or so ago. I thought that I had taken notes (in braille) on the process, but if I did, they are not where I would have stored them.

Is there anyone on this list, who uses iTunes for Windows who has encountered this issue, or if not, is technically savvy enough to provide the steps on how to recover this playlist of 60-plus songs.

 

Best, Justin   


moderated Re: question about audio feedback loop when using Zoom

Richard Turner
 

I found the below on a Zoom blog.

The link is at the end.

 

audio feedback

Despite Zoom’s uncanny ability to provide you with an excellent video meeting every single time you use it, with any technology, there’s bound to be some problem every once in awhile.  For example you’re in a meeting, enjoying your chat, and suddenly you hear a noise that almost shreds your eardrums. What was that?!

 

This phenomenon is known as acoustic feedback and it occurs when sound that comes from a pair of speakers creates a loop that circulates back and forth between the speakers and your microphone. This usually happens in situations where someone is speaking publicly since the sound going into the microphone is also played back through a pair of speakers. Since you don’t experience the same playback situation in a Zoom meeting, this should be a rare occurrence. But with 10 million users, we’ve pretty much seen it all.

 

If you’re experiencing acoustic feedback on Zoom, you must first find out the reason why the blaring noise is giving your ears a hard time before you solve the issue.

 

Are You Playing Back Your Own Audio?

Your computer lets you have the option of playing back your own microphone’s audio through its speakers. If you have this setting enabled, you will be able to hear your own voice through your speakers even though you are not running any active applications. Try blowing into your microphone with your volume set high. If you hear some garbled audio coming from your speakers, you have microphone playback enabled.

 

On Mac OS X, this is not a default option that comes with the operating system. However, if you’re using Windows, you will have to shut this option down to prevent feedback.

 

On Windows 7 and 8, right-click the speaker icon on the taskbar at the bottom right-hand side of your screen and then click “Sounds.” Select the “Recording” tab and pick your active microphone. Once you’ve selected it, click the “Properties” button found below your list of recording devices. Click the “Listen” tab and then deselect the option labeled “Listen to this device.” Once you’ve configured everything, your Zoom meeting should run smoothly.

 

If you want to keep the playback, pay special attention to where your microphone is situated. Keep your microphone as far away from your speakers as possible and make sure it is pointing in the opposite direction. You will also have to keep your playback volume low for microphone playback to work without any acoustic feedback.

 

Are Other Computers In The Same Room Joining Your Meeting?

zoom - multiple devices

Two computers join a Zoom meeting from the same room. Why? Maybe one of them wanted to join from their laptop or mobile device to screen share a document, or maybe they just wanted stay at their desk to multitask during the meeting instead of joining their colleagues on the big screen. Regardless of the reason, both of them have their speakers on full blast and microphones situated close to those speakers. Almost instantly, your room will sound like a very badly set-up stage for a rock concert.

 

To correct this issue, either have the second device leave the meeting or mute its microphone and speaker. If this is a conference room where you’ll be expecting company, the best setup is to have one or two monitors positioned at the end of a table with a powerful set of speakers and microphone.

 

Someone’s Speaker Volume is Extremely High

In some video meetings, you’ll encounter a participant whose speaker volume is so obnoxiously high that you can hear yourself through his equipment. This could be the one thing causing a feedback loop. You see, your voice passes through your microphone into the Zoom meeting, then goes out the other end through the oblivious participant’s speakers, back into their microphone, and back out your speakers. If the sound is loud enough, it will bounce back into your microphone, starting the process all over again. As it loops, the sound gets distorted and you get a very nasty echo.

 

In this situation, try muting the participant whose equipment you think is causing problems for a few seconds. If the issue is resolved, inform the participant of the situation and ask them to lower their speaker volume. While you’re at it, make it a policy for meeting participants to keep their speaker volumes at a decent level or wear headphones. This eliminates the possibility of unwanted sounds having a dance party on everyone’s ear drums.

Subject: question about audio feedback loop when using Zoom

 

Hi All:

I’ve become a frequent Zoom user in this new universe of working from home. I’m working on a Lenovo P53 laptop running Windows 10 and Jaws 2020. My problem is that in almost every meeting, my mic and speakers get suddenly muted, and a dialogue box pops up entitled “feedback loop detected”. There are yes and no buttons in the dialogue box to choose whether to continue muting or not. #1 issue is that when everything mutes, so does Jaws, so I don’t even know that the dialogue box has appeared, and can’t use Jaws to navigate to the buttons on it. I’ve figured out a work-around for that, from a tech at FS – I press jaws key + escape, which unmutes Jaws. Then I can navigate to the no button on the dialogue box.

But the bigger problem to solve (#2 problem) is getting this dialogue box not to appear at all, and not to have the mic and speakers automatically muted during a Zoom meeting. I’ve looked everywhere on Google search, and can’t find hardly any reference to this issue at all. After browsing through Jonathan Mosen’s book on Zoom (which is free at the moment, BTW), and not finding anything about this, I emailed Jonathan to ask him directly. His suggestion is to use a USB headset bc it essentially has it’s own sound card built in. There may be an issue with Jaws and the mic/speakers using the same sound card, that hopefully will be overcome with the USB headset. I had been using either the built-in mic and speakers, or a Bos Sport set of headphones with a mic in the cord, that plugs into the laptop’s audio jack. The unwanted muting problem occurs with both set ups. My home office usually has a USB headset kicking around, but alas, when I went to look for one, I found none – I must have taken them to my office. Getting a new one these days is like getting toilet paper, but I do have one on order from Amazon, due to arrive Wednesday. I’m hoping that will solve this very annoying problem. In the meantime, I thought I would describe this problem to the list and see if anyone else had this problem and new how to solve it another way.

Be well.

-Amy B.
