JAWS Scripting with 3270 emulators

Staton, Carl R <carl.staton@...>
 

I am researching using JAWS with 3270 emulators. I currently have JAWS 17 and I have IBM’s PCOM and QWS3270 installed.

 

JAWS appears limited to ‘seeing’ 3270 characters that are Highlighted-White which requires forcing your emulator to override all colors to white and some emulators work better than others.

JAWS scripting also appears limited to ‘seeing’ as the cursor is positioned over 3270 screen characters.

 

I am trying to determine two basic points about JAWS scripting capabilities. 

 

1.       Can JAWS scripting retrieve the whole 3270 screen of characters - I see the GetLine function, but it is not obvious what it can do.

Could  a loop using the invisible cursor and GetLine function reliably pass through all 3270 rows quickly?

 

2.        Can scripting read any text file.  There is direct support for a couple .INI files but I do not see anything for reading text files in general.

 

I created a HLLAPI-based 3270 automation tool. It works with several 3270 emulators.   I would think I could drive that tool when JAWS saw any program attention key press (ie Enter), using the JAWS RUN function, and have the automation tool dump the entire screen text to a text file, along with the 3270 screen size and cursor location (row and column).  However, I do not see JAWS scripting functions to read the text file.

 

        If I can use the automation tool get the screen for a JAWS script, then I could also skip the need to force the emulator to override all colors to highlighted-white.

 

Can anyone comment on these points?

 

Thank you, Carl

I don't know, but could you try downloading and installing it from the Freedom

Does this produce the same error message?

Ho, Ho, Ho, Here Y'all Go,

 

Below are the direct download links & what's new for the latest JAWS 18.0.2118 update.

The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 18 release and the December 2016 update.
JAWS
list of 11 items
• The keystroke to announce the comment at the cursor location in a Word document as well as all of the JAWS Tandem keystrokes can now be found using the
JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
• You can now press a braille display cursor router button on a file in Windows Explorer to rename the file.
• Addressed an issue with JAWS not reading as expected after using the mouse to minimize or close the Virtual Viewer.
• Resolved an issue where some controls in the Windows Update dialog box were not being correctly identified as links when using Touch or Mouse Echo.
• When changing the setting for the User Pan Mode option in Settings Center, resolved a reported issue where the corresponding option in Quick Settings
was not getting changed.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with braille flash messages using the "err" type not working when the flash message verbosity was set to Advanced.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was unexpectedly restarting under some circumstances when using the Auto Graphics Labeler.
• Addressed reported issues with some Research It lookup sources not working as expected in both the Spanish and German versions of JAWS.
• A customer using the Spanish version of JAWS reported several English messages and keystroke conflicts. These have been resolved.
• In response to customer feedback, if a French keyboard has been added in Windows Regional Settings and LEFT ALT+LEFT SHIFT is pressed to switch the keyboard
language, JAWS now announces when the keyboard language changes to French.
• This update includes the latest braille display drivers from Humanware for the Brailliant BI and BrailleNote Touch.
list end

 

JAWS Touch Support
list of 4 items
• The three-finger flick down and three-finger flick up gestures now cycle between the panes in various applications including the Windows Mail app, Microsoft
Word, and JAWS Settings Center. This is similar to pressing F6 or SHIFT+F6 on the keyboard.
• When you move to a slider control using touch, you can now flick up or down with one finger to adjust the value of the slider.
• You can now review the contents of a command prompt window using touch gestures.
• As you explore the screen with the touch keyboard active, JAWS now plays a sound to indicate when you are on a keyboard button.
list end

 

Vocalizer Expressive 2.2
list of 5 items
• Resolved an issue where the Set Language as Primary button was not available as expected in the Voice Adjustment dialog box when configuring voice profiles
for certain languages.
• When creating a new voice profile, addressed an issue with certain languages where no voices were being listed in the Person combo box.
• Resolved issues with the Speak Sample button not working as expected when creating a new voice profile.
• Resolved a reported issue where there were no pauses in speech when the punctuation level was set to none.
• Addressed an issue where it was not possible to switch to the English South Africa voice using the Select a Language dialog box (WINDOWS Key+CTRL+L).
list end

 

Adobe Acrobat
list of 2 items
• While navigating in PDF documents, resolved an issue where focus was unexpectedly moving to a different location in the document.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading graphics correctly in Acrobat Reader DC.
list end

 

Microsoft Excel
list of 2 items
• In the Excel 2016 spell checker, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was saying "no selected item" while navigating the list of suggestions.
• Updated the documentation for the Move to Worksheet keystroke (CTRL+SHIFT+S) to make it easier to locate using the JAWS Commands Search.
list end

 

Microsoft Outlook
list of 4 items
• Resolved a customer reported issue where messages were automatically being read even when the Messages Automatically Read option in Quick Settings was
turned off.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not correctly speaking the state of check boxes when creating custom search folders.
• Improved JAWS performance when using the Outlook 2016 search (CTRL+E).
• When using the CTRL+ALT+1 through 4 keystrokes to change the Calendar view in Outlook 2016, addressed an issue where JAWS was sometimes not indicating
the view gaining focus.
list end

 

Microsoft Word
list of 4 items
• Added a new Quick Settings option, Include Blank Paragraphs For Paragraph Navigation, to specify whether or not blank paragraphs are included when using
CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW. When enabled, navigation in the Word document with CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW will include blank lines as well
as paragraphs with text. This setting is off by default which means that blank lines are skipped.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with Spanish JAWS where pressing CTRL+SHIFT+COMMA or CTRL+SHIFT+PERIOD in a Spanish version of Office to decrease
or increase the font point size was not working as expected.
• JAWS now provides better access to form fields in unprotected documents in Word 2016.
• JAWS now indicates when split buttons in Office ribbons are unavailable.
list end

 

Skype
list of 1 items
• JAWS now announces Sign in and Sign out notifications as well as other miscellaneous alerts that were not previously being announced reliably.
list end

 

Web Browsers
list of 14 items
• JAWS now includes the contents of ARIA live regions in Braille Structured Mode. A good example to see this is Google Sheets, Google's web-based spreadsheet
program. Before this change, JAWS could speak cell coordinates or contents, but this information was not displayed in braille. Now, JAWS shows in braille
not only cell coordinates such as a1, a2 etc., but can also display the entire cell contents, or what is currently being typed into a cell.
• Added support for the ARIA 1.1 features aria-posinset and aria-setsize on menu items in Firefox and on tab controls in Internet Explorer.
• In Firefox, added support for the aria-errormessage, aria-rowindex, and aria-colindex ARIA 1.1 properties, as well as role="none" and the new "figure"
role.
• Added JAWS support for the ARIA 1.1 error message relation in Internet Explorer.
• Addressed a reported issue with navigating to and activating tab controls on web pages in Firefox.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where lists inside of a Navigation region on certain web pages were not being displayed correctly in Firefox.
• Addressed an issue with the "new tab page" message being announced at inappropriate times. This message should now only be heard when a browser tab opens
or closes.
• In Internet Explorer, addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading labels for clickable elements.
• Resolved reported issues encountered by some users when completing the JAWS Certification Exam.
• Resolved issues with JAWS reporting the incorrect state of check boxes when the Display Settings (DPI) was set higher than 100 percent which is often
the case on touch screen laptops and tablets.
• When selecting text in a multiline edit field in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where the selected text was not being indicated in braille.
• Addressed issues with form fields that use the aria-labelledby attribute not being seen by JAWS in Internet Explorer the same as they are in Firefox.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not correctly announcing links that contain the aria-describedby attribute in Internet Explorer.
• In Internet Explorer, resolved reported issues where check boxes and links were not working as expected inside of a div element using an ARIA role of
"grid". In addition, pressing INSERT+CTRL+B for a list of buttons on the page now works as expected inside an ARIA grid.
list end
Merry downloading & installing!

Take care.

The only version of Outlook that I have access to is Outlook 2016, where it's
under the View tab, in the Arrangement group box, under the "Arrange by"
submenu. After pressing the button to invoke the submenu, you're presented
with a grid of options, including the option to arrange by sender (the "from"

I don't know how different this is from older versions of Outlook, but I'm
making an educated guess that it's probably similar and that if you look at

No. That's of course why it's necessary in Pablo's case to insert a blank
row or Colum before he selects the entire range. If he has multiple blank
cells in that overall range, he's going to have to do it the hard way -- or
sort the range to skip over all the blanks.

if you know the top left cell and the lower right cell, you can use the go
to feature to select the range. for example, activate the go to feature,
type a1:z10 and press enter. everything from a1 to z10 will be (should be)
selected.

this also works if you should need to select more than one range. each range
is separated with a comma.

Hi Pablo,

There is usually more than one way to skin a cat and that also applies to
many tasks in Excel, Word etc. Here is what I do:

Let's assume you want to select everything from cell A1 to J73, in other
words, 10 columns and 73 rows.
First, go to the beginning which in this case is A1.
Now press Control+G for the Go To command and type in J73.
Lastly, instead of pressing enter to go to J73, press Shift+Enter, this will
go to J73 and select all cells from A1 to J73 in the process.

Take care,

Hi everyone,

 

 

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck at using JAWS with Outlook using the conversation view.

 

I am trying to compare it with the native iOS 10 app where IOS will advise how many emails are in the conversation and then will only stay within the borders of that conversation.

 

Seems like when I turn this option on in Outlook, it does seem to advise me that there is more than one email, but not a total number is spoken.  When I open this conversation and arrow down, then it just moves right out of this list and JAWS does not give me any indication that this was done.

 

Any help or input on this subject would be appreciated.  I looked around the web on this but did not find any info at all.

Mario,
Thank you so much for your answer. However I am trying to select a range
that I need to specify, no a range that excel will specify using the cells
without data. It is no what I am trying to do. About the go to dialog, there
is nothing that allow me to do what I need. Probably if I specify a range as
a data region could be. But the problem is that I will need to create data
regions before select and copy. It is a procedure that I need to do several
times, and it will make double my work.
Now, you gave me a great idea, if I add an empty row between the ranges, it
will make easier my job.
Thanks again,

selected.

this also works if you should need to select more than one range. each range
is separated with a comma.

Subject: selecting long ranges of cells in excel

Hello all,

In excel, I am trying to select the values between two very distant cells.
How can I select two distant cells, when the distance is that long that just
holding shift and navigating through the arrow keys doesn't make sense.

Thanks for all,

You can purchase the upgrade to 18 now and then purchase an SMA that will get you 19 and 20.

jaws upgrade:

Hi I am planning on upgrading from jaws 16 to jaws 18, and I checked my serial number on the freedomscientific webpage and it told me I needed to purchase jaws 18 before I can get the SMA. The question I have is that if I purchase the upgrade first, will I need to wait until I purchase the SMA agreement to activate the upgrade to jaws 18?

I will be getting a new desktop in a few days.  I’m a little nervous about learning Windows10, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out.  Just will have to get use to the new layout with Jaws.

Hi Sieghard,

 

I never imagined that all that bloatware could slow down a system so much! I’m pleasantly surprised. It sounds like you have a pretty nice system! That’s great! Like I said, I feel like I have a new laptop again! :)

 

Cheers,

 

Russell

Yes, you are 100% right. I didn't knowthis way to select ranges of cells.
Sorry for my quick response. It fixed my whole problem.
Thank you so much,

I would disagree with this. If you use the goto function you can select
multiple areas with or without text in it. For example
a1:z10,a14,b717:l134.

Mario,
Thank you so much for your answer. However I am trying to select a range
that I need to specify, no a range that excel will specify using the cells
without data. It is no what I am trying to do. About the go to dialog, there
is nothing that allow me to do what I need. Probably if I specify a range as
a data region could be. But the problem is that I will need to create data
regions before select and copy. It is a procedure that I need to do several
times, and it will make double my work.
Now, you gave me a great idea, if I add an empty row between the ranges, it
will make easier my job.
Thanks again,

the go to feature is not only used to go to a particular cell. reread my
original reply.

Ok, control + G is the keystroke to go to the cell that I want. But what is
the keystroke that I need to do to say, I want to select from this cell,
then go to the cell what ever cell, and say again, I want to stop selecting
hhere. I know how to navigate, but my problem is how to select those cells.
Just pressing the shift key is no going to work, because shift down, plus
control + g is no going to work.

if you know the top left cell and the lower right cell, you can use the go
to feature to select the range. for example, activate the go to feature,
type a1:z10 and press enter. everything from a1 to z10 will be (should be)
selected.

this also works if you should need to select more than one range. each range
is separated with a comma.
