Hi thank you, I don't think I won't have any problems arrowing around and making any necessary corrections. As I have to do that quite often sometimes with my Mac.

Sorry, but I can’t remember the hotkey for using the dictation feature in JAWS. It works well, assuming you don’t have any weird words in your dictation. For example, when I used it quite a qhile back, I was writing my fictional stories, containing the word Digimon. The dictation brought that out as did your mom, so it’s not as accurate as you’d like to believe on that score. It’s pretty good though for people who need to use it/just can’t remember the hotkey.

Hi,
I like the built in Speech Dictation in Windows 10. Like the Word “Dictate” add in it is just a basic program but responds well and is pretty accurate.

Hello everyone,

I have a client who wishes to use some dictation software with JAWS. We have tried the new Dictate add-in with Word and JAWS. It works reasonably well, but seems to lack some of the “bells and whistles” like literal numbers or word and correction. But for get thoughts on a page and going back and “cleaning up, it is a good choice.

I get very mixed reviews on Dragon Naturally speaking and JAWS. I read everything from it works well to they don’t play nice together and it is difficult to set up.

Wondering about experiences anyone may have had trying to use Dragon with JAWS. My person is running JAWS 2020, and Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer. If it does work what do we have to do to make it so? Also a question of a headset mic vs tabletop. My client doesn’t care for headsets, but if a must have, a recommendation for a reasonably priced one.

Thanks

So once you enable it which keystroke do you use to activate it when you actually need to dictate something? I will be upgrading to Windows 10 here in a few days and this would be great to know as I'm not a great typist.

Hank,
In Windows 10:
Go to “Settings”
Go to “Ease of Access”
Tab once to get to list of items under “ease of Access”
Arrow down to “Interaction”
This will give you a list of four items
The top one is Speech
Tab over to the list of items to set up Speech Dictation.
Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.
There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

You can leave dictation on or allow for sleep until you call for it.

Hope this helps.

No one can answer your second question without a lot more information regarding what error message or messages you're receiving.

The first cannot be answered specifically without knowing the e-mail client, but it can be answered generally.  You need to be sorting your messages on date, so get focus on the column heading for date, which generally serves as a toggle button, and activate it.  This will cause the sort order to be on date, and if that ends up being in the opposite order of what you want, go back and activate it again, which switches the sort order.

A repeat of Joseph Lee's instructions for users of Braille Commands and a note about what I post:  I never presume those are being used.

It's not that I don't realize that these exist, but the I've never yet had a blind client that uses them, so I always presume regular keyboard use as a default state.  I also presume that anyone using a non-standard interface (and, yes, that is non-standard) will be aware that this sometimes imposes constraints not otherwise present, what those constraints are, and, in most cases, what the workarounds are, if any exist.

I aim what I post at the dead center of the bell curve in the audience I'm addressing.

Hi there. I wonder if this will make a difference on how braille displays handle alt tabbing. Currently, you can only use the ALT tab keystroke to move between two open programs. If there are more, you can’t locate them with the display unless you use the Insert plus F10 keystroke. That may not work sometimes either.

What are your Windows Version and Build Numbers?   There is a change in ALT+TAB default behavior with the introduction of Version 20H2 and I suspect that's what's going on.  The settings you refer to have nothing to do with ALT+TAB behavior.

I don't want to get into the 20H2 "change back" steps unless I know you have 20H2.

I went into settings and screwed something up, but do not know what I screwed up.

It was somewhere in settings system, and may have been in actions or something but I’m not sure.

Maybe something to do with the task bar.

I won’t fool around again without recording what steps I took so I can reverse them if it doesn’t work out.

In the meantime, Microsoft Disability put my windows in a floating state of some kind and I can get between them with windows-tab and then left and right arrows in the running applications list and pressing enter for whatever I want.

I was fooling around somewhere using the following as a guide.

Any ideas appreciated.

Settings, System, Notifications & Actions Pane.  Navigate down to the list under Get Notifications from these senders and toggle off every single one of them where you do not need or want a notification "in real time".  Almost everything defaults to ON initially, so if you've never visited this list in the past you'll likely be toggling a very great many things OFF.

One can also greatly reduce the incidence of notifications, period, by disallowing them for any apps where you don't consider getting them in a really timely manner to be important.
