Learn More, Do more, New Features in JAWS: The JAWS Scan Cursor
Elizabeth Whitaker
December 3, 2019
 
Over the next few weeks, we want to highlight some of the new features in the recently released 2020 updates to JAWS and Fusion. For our first post, we
want to briefly cover some changes to the existing JAWS and Invisible Cursors which help improve access to many of the universal applications found in
Windows 10. These types of apps, also known as Universal Windows Platform apps, are typically obtained through the Microsoft Store and can run on any Windows
device from a small hand-held tablet computer to a full desktop PC.
 
Background
 
For years, JAWS has provided the ability for users to quickly review text on the screen without changing the system focus. For instance, if you need to
access information in a dialog box that is not accessible using TAB or SHIFT+TAB, you could press NUM PAD MINUS or NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly to activate
the JAWS or Invisible Cursor and then use the ARROW keys and other standard reading commands to move around the screen while the system focus remained
on the current control. The primary difference between the JAWS and Invisible Cursors is that the mouse pointer follows along with the JAWS Cursor so you
can click items using the NUM PAD SLASH or NUM PAD STAR commands.
 
In order to access screen content with the JAWS and Invisible Cursors, we use a technology called the Off-Screen Model (OSM). However, in the last few
years, an increasing number of applications are now using newer technologies such as User Interface Automation (UIA) to present screen content which made
the JAWS and Invisible Cursor useless in these situations. When activating these cursors in applications like the Calculator, Weather, or most apps from
the Microsoft Store, you would only hear “blank” when attempting to review the screen.
 
The JAWS and Invisible Scan Cursors
 
JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS or Invisible Scan Cursor in
these situations. You will use the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS or Invisible cursors.
 
For example, if you press NUM PAD MINUS in the Weather app so you can review a forecast, you will now hear JAWS announce “JAWS Scan Cursor” as this is
an app that does not support the OSM. Similarly, if you press NUM PAD Minus twice quickly, you will hear JAWS announce, “Invisible Scan Cursor.” You can
then use the same commands you always have to review text with the difference being that you are now navigating through the UIA elements of the app.
 
For instance:
 
list of 5 items
◦ LEFT  or RIGHT ARROW  moves by character through the text of the current element.
◦ CTRL+LEFT  or CTRL+RIGHT ARROW  moves by word.
◦ UP  or DOWN ARROW  moves to the previous or next element or line of text.
◦ HOME  or END  moves to the beginning or end of the current element.
◦ CTRL+HOME  or CTRL+END  moves to the first or last element on the screen.
list end
 
You can still use JAWS commands such as INSERT+UP ARROW to read the current element or line of text as well as CTRL+F to search for text currently visible
on the screen. When using the JAWS Scan Cursor, the mouse pointer follows along as you navigate so you can still press NUM PAD SLASH or NUM PAD STAR to
perform a left or right click.
 
While the JAWS and Invisible Scan Cursors work in many places, we are continuing to improve this functionality in more areas. Look out for improvements
in future 2020 updates.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi,

 

Is it possible to disable this and go back to using the old JAWS Cursor to stop it automatically swapping to JAWS scan cursor?

I was able to see the staff names using the JAWS curser in JFW 2019.  The Staff link said that it is a “Link has pop up”.  Just pressing the Enter Key would get me nothing, so I switched to the JAWS curser and was able to read the names.

Hello group,

 

I am using Jaws 2020 updated and Jaws 2019. I’m having trouble with Jaws finding links and text in part of a website. NVDA sees this page perfectly, so I’m hoping someone might have a suggestion as to how to get Jaws to do the same. Underneath the heading for “Our Staff” should be links to a number of different persons, Jaws is not seeing any of this. Here’s the link, any helpful feedback very appreciated. Best, Norma

moderated Control+shift+N not revealing page number in Adobe Reader 10, when used with JAWS 2020

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi,

When I press control+shift+n to check my page number, it says '1',
when I know for a fact that I am not on the first page. It refuses to
reveal what page I am actually on. The reason I am not using a more
recent version of Adobe Reader is because Adobe Reader XI gives rise
to the problem of JAWS jumping around from page to page, and does not
retain focus. How can I fix this?

Best,
Rahul

Hi Jessica, thanks for the reminder about default settings. I toggled it on and the page read fine.

I’m thinking I should go back to the default of the Chrome settings. I’m not sure how to do this so if you or someone else could advise that would be super. Best, Norma

I kinda doubt that this is possible, I have no idea how JAWS determines it, but apparently the SCAN cursor is used only when the JAWS cursor would produce no
results.

Dear David, Richard, Richie & List:

Old JAWS settings do not migrate automatically, you must select the old settings you wish to migrate as part of the JAWS 2020 installation . It is simple, select the old settings to migrate and press the space bar on the migrate button. Usually only takes a few seconds to do the migration.

That should give you an option to import your settings, I think.

Mine have transferred over between 2019 and 2020. I think I ended up having to run the wizard between 2018 and 2019 but not sure.

Oh well, I rarely use that account for anything since I much prefer the Exchange way for mail, contacts and such.

It works perfectly for me in a Microsoft Exchange folder, but it doesn’t report the number of messages in an IMAP folder.

As Seigart said, you need to use the num pad on your keyboard.  Following his clear instructions nets the result he mentioned, I tested it and got the same message he stated, save I have more messages.

When I press insert plus the 3, it says""pass key through."

I'm using Jaws 2020, windows ten and Outlook 2016.

That keystroke works for me, but when it doesn’t it usually is because Outlook is displaying some message somewhere which you may or may not be able to get to with Jaws to dismiss it.

I used to be able to press JAWS key plus 3 on the number pad & it would tell me how many email messages I have.  I use Outlook 2016, Windows 10 & JAWS 2018.  How do I get this to work again?

 

Thank you.

Yes it used to say that but now it says click here to always preview messages.  Then if I enter on it it takes me to the first message in the list.  Then when I go back to all the messages & press JAWS key plus num pad 3 it says 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.

If you press Jaws Key + NumPad 3, does it say something like this:

 

Items in View 67. Unread Items in View 65. Progress All folders are up to date. Connectivity to your server. Connected to: Microsoft Exchange

I think I am missing something here.  I too use my exchange accounts primarily however, when I do open my Gmail account using office 365, it does tell me how many unread messages I have.  Perhaps the query about message count means something else?

Hi Marty,

 

I just pasted a picture of our ex-speedboat into the Picture Smart folder and it started scanning immediately.  This is the results.

 

 

This text appears in the photo

This object possibly appears in the photo

Toy.

These tags describe the photo

These tags probably describe the photo

I just found the PictureSmart folder in My Pictures and pasted a Jpeg into this folder.  Nothing happened.  When I pressed JAWS key plus Space bar then P then F, JAWS then described the picture, but it did not start automatically with JFW 2019.

Another way is, if you have a picture as a .JPEG or some other picture format save it somewhere, then copy / paste it into the Picture Smart folder and once it's pasted into this folder the Picture Smart feature will start on it as soon as it's pasted.  The Picture Smart folder is located in your User Name folder as a sub-folder of the My Pictures folder.

Open the picture.

Select all with a control a.

Save to clipboard with a control c

Then JAWS key plus space bar, then p then b.

That should start the Picture Smart.

You also can try.

Select the file of the picture.

Then Jaws key plus space bar then p then f.

Sieghard,

This is a great idea. Window-Eyes allowed you to change the sounds that it used from the Sounds app via Control Panel. You're right: JAWS should have the same capability. I'll need to update my huge list of suggestions in my feature wish list ...

OK, I misunderstood then. You should make a suggestion via the Vispero website to allow users to pick and choose their sound files for Jaws events like you can do in Windows.

I don’t use a headset often and on speaker I personally find that the sound is quite OK.

Hi, Sieghard.

I think what the original questioner wanted to know was how to disable the sound that you hear when the autocomplete list is generated but not how to disable Outlook's autocomplete feature, which I agree is extremely useful. I personally find that particular sound to be extremely jarring and harsh on my ears, particularly when I use a headset. I believe this sound is from JAWS and not from Outlook and I personally find it annoying. I don't believe there is a setting to disable that particular sound from within Quick Settings and there really needs to be. The various sounds are located in the folder

C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2020\Settings\enu\SOUNDS

and there are two Outlook autocomplete sound files, one for start and the other for end. A user could substitute their own sound files for the defaults, ensuring that they properly rename them back to the original names of the files to ensure that they still work. It is likely that deleting these files without replacing them would just result in no sounds at all without breaking the Outlook scripts but I haven't tried it to verify.

Not sure why you wouldn’t want auto-complete, I use it all the time since mostly I just have to type a few characters of the person’s name and then I can arrow if necessary to find the person.

But to turn it off just go to File > Options, go to the Mail category and then tab about 40 times, if you don’t want to tab that much you can also press Alt + G when you are on the Mail category.

But of course if you do tab through all these options, you get to know what they are and it’s always good to know where things are and what you can change/customize.

Hi.

 

When I’m typing an e-mail, in the to field, jaws will play a sound that indicates recent people you’ve contacted. Is there a way to turn this off, and where do I find it?

 

Thanks.
