your outlook is set to arrange by groups, dates.

I'm not at my computer right now, but you can turn off that feature in outlook.

If you want it left on, but want Jaws to ignore it, maybe Mike B, or someone else who knows Jaws settings better will chime in.

Hello,

 

Using latest Windows 1909, Outlook 2016, and yesterday’s update of jaws the following announcement keeps repeating as I arrow down through mail in my inbox:

Group By: Expanded: Date: Yesterday

Each time I get to a message with a different date this announcement occurs. I’ve unchecked many verbosity setting in Outlook but can’t quiet this message. Suggestions?

Where exactly are you finding the word expanded?

 

In my list of mail box folders, mine say open or closed.

Hi,

Using office 365, I’m noticing that the word, “expanded” is  spoken twice.

It will say what Al said, then it’ll say “expanded” again.

 

Definitely very annoying

Does anyone know of a fix?

 

Thanks,

Temat: Friday Night Tech Workshop: JAWS, Just Because. Providing Help for
JAWS-specific Questions. March 20, 8:00 PM, Eastern Time



The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to spend more time at home. Some
of us are now working from home. Some of us may be staying home to stay
safe. Others may be at home in order to self-isolate or quarantine. Even
before all of this began there have been many opportunities for online
training using meeting platforms such as Zoom. Now that more of us are
forced to stay in our homes the opportunities for remote training and
assistance will likely increase.

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first Ibug
<https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibugtoday.com%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7Cb082631755174c68119208d7cb282cd7%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637201245717698466&sdata=hEfEFkOgnDSm42Zw9%2FuKSAtwRGl9uCIAVGkIyuRm%2Bs8%3D&reserved=0>
conference where participants are encouraged to ask questions and to
provide support for one another with their iOS devices. I really liked the
format of the conference but I wanted to see a similar opportunity covering
topics from a Windows perspective.

I decided that I’d like to host such a conference and this will likely be
the first in a series of free, online tech workshops, assuming there is
enough interest in such a project.

The first of these workshops is titled, “JAWS, Just Because” and is
scheduled for Friday, March 20 at 8:00 PM Eastern time. This conference will
allow users of the JAWS screen reader to both ask questions as well as to
provide answers to those who use the JAWS screen reader. No question is too
basic or too esoteric and it should be stressed that there is no such thing
as a stupid question.

For this conference I’m looking for two types of participants. First, anyone
with a question regarding JAWS is, of course, welcome. Second, I’m hoping
that those who are knowledgeable in the use of JAWS will also consider
participating to share knowledge. Due to time constraints we won’t have time
to provide lengthy support or to tandem into a user’s machine. Questions
which require this type of intervention would best be addressed by Vispero’s
technical support.

In order to keep the conference running smoothly I am going to adopt a
similar policy which has been successfully used by iBug. Users who wish to
ask a question or to provide a response should say their name, as in, “This
is John.” At that point please wait to be acknowledged by the host, as in,
“Go ahead, John.”

I have some other ideas for similar workshops but would like to hear some of
yours so that I can determine the needs that you have as well as the level
of interest. With many of us working from home are there specific
applications or programs that you might want some assistance with? Programs
that come to mind are Slack, Teams, etc. Would there be interest in similar
workshops for NVDA users?

I would also like to invite other assistive technology trainers to write to
me privately if you’re interested in assisting with any of these workshops.
Many of you may have some ideas which I haven’t thought of and you surely
have expertise with topics which I do not. I am unable to provide any type
of compensation for any assistance you may choose to provide but the point
of these workshops is to provide free assistance to those who may be
spending more time at home doing work or completing other tasks. This can be
a stressful time for many of us. Many kind and patient people assisted me
when I was first learning about assistive technology and I just want to pay
it forward and give something back to the blindness community, particularly
during this time when the need for some tech help may be even greater

Here is the relevant information about the upcoming conference.

that come to mind are Slack, Teams, etc. Would there be interest in similar
workshops for NVDA users?

I would also like to invite other assistive technology trainers to write to
me privately if you’re interested in assisting with any of these workshops.
Many of you may have some ideas which I haven’t thought of and you surely
have expertise with topics which I do not. I am unable to provide any type
of compensation for any assistance you may choose to provide but the point
of these workshops is to provide free assistance to those who may be
spending more time at home doing work or completing other tasks. This can be
a stressful time for many of us. Many kind and patient people assisted me
when I was first learning about assistive technology and I just want to pay
it forward and give something back to the blindness community, particularly
during this time when the need for some tech help may be even greater

I am going to join in order to listen to it, possibly answer someone and maybe ask something? I’d be interested in learning MS Access with jFW, but there are people with bigger needs…

Temat: Friday Night Tech Workshop: JAWS, Just Because. Providing Help for JAWS-specific Questions. March 20, 8:00 PM, Eastern Time

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to spend more time at home. Some of us are now working from home. Some of us may be staying home to stay safe. Others may be at home in order to self-isolate or quarantine. Even before all of this began there have been many opportunities for online training using meeting platforms such as Zoom. Now that more of us are forced to stay in our homes the opportunities for remote training and assistance will likely increase.

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first Ibug conference where participants are encouraged to ask questions and to provide support for one another with their iOS devices. I really liked the format of the conference but I wanted to see a similar opportunity covering topics from a Windows perspective.

I decided that I’d like to host such a conference and this will likely be the first in a series of free, online tech workshops, assuming there is enough interest in such a project.

The first of these workshops is titled, “JAWS, Just Because” and is scheduled for Friday, March 20 at 8:00 PM Eastern time. This conference will allow users of the JAWS screen reader to both ask questions as well as to provide answers to those who use the JAWS screen reader. No question is too basic or too esoteric and it should be stressed that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

For this conference I’m looking for two types of participants. First, anyone with a question regarding JAWS is, of course, welcome. Second, I’m hoping that those who are knowledgeable in the use of JAWS will also consider participating to share knowledge. Due to time constraints we won’t have time to provide lengthy support or to tandem into a user’s machine. Questions which require this type of intervention would best be addressed by Vispero’s technical support.

In order to keep the conference running smoothly I am going to adopt a similar policy which has been successfully used by iBug. Users who wish to ask a question or to provide a response should say their name, as in, “This is John.” At that point please wait to be acknowledged by the host, as in, “Go ahead, John.”

I have some other ideas for similar workshops but would like to hear some of yours so that I can determine the needs that you have as well as the level of interest. With many of us working from home are there specific applications or programs that you might want some assistance with? Programs that come to mind are Slack, Teams, etc. Would there be interest in similar workshops for NVDA users?

I would also like to invite other assistive technology trainers to write to me privately if you’re interested in assisting with any of these workshops.

Hello!

I need to work with Jetbrains Rider, a software foe developing software. The program is written in JAVA, so I need to use the JAB. However from what I recall from previous years, the JAWS support for JAVA applications is not good. Has the situation improved or I will have to go back to NVDA?

moderated How to make Jaws show links on a braille disply

Jay <jcoffin@...>
 

Hi.

 

How do you make Jaws show links on a braille display when reading content? For example, if you’re scrolling through a webpage and come across a link, how would you see it in braille? Is there a setting to turn on or something that will make it do this?

 

Thanks.

Jessica,

 

Rather than suggesting how to remove Dectalk, I wonder if it can be made to work for you. I use Dectalk Express, which may or may not require a tiny amount of configuring. Which Dectalk are you referring to?

Hi,

I wanted to try Deck talk, but its not working with jaws.

 

As a result, I’d like to remove it, but can’t.

 

When I try, using the synthiciser and braille manager, I check the 3 boxes, but am not given the option to remove.

 

What can I do?

 

Thanks,

I believe I have done this, but will be sure the next time.

 

Actually, I often find that, on this particular web site, arrowing down to the next edit field works better than tabbing.  Not sure why, though.

If you're tabbing from 1 open edit / forms field to the next, try closing each field after you enter the data, then arrow to the next edit field and open it and enter the data, close the edit arrow to the next open enter....

Hello, everyone.

 

Due to some hham radio-related volunteer work I’m doing, I need to send brief alert text messages via a specific web site that is often used for public-service and emergency communication purposes.

 

In order to send a message, I must complete fields in a web form, which is actually fairly accessible.

 

However, in part of the form, Jaws tells me that I’m in the message edit box, while, in reality, my PC cursor gets stuck in the subject field which is previous to the message edit box on the form.

 

How can I be sure that the Jaws and PC cursor are in the same place when completing this form?

 

Normally, I’d post the web site and ask for everyone’s input, but the site is somewhat secure, and used for public-service/emergency communications, so I need to be careful.

 

I’ll try to clarify the issue further if needed.

 

Thanks for any input.
