moderated windows mail keeps closing

Marvin Kotler
 

Good evening listers; first, using jaws 2021 and the latest version of windows.  When trying to read messages in windows mail, the program keeps closing.  Had this problem in  earlier versions of windows.  When I use NVDA  which I do not know how to use very well, there is no problem.  Just wondered if anyone else had this problem and wondered if there is a solution.  Merry Christmas to all.

Hi again Jonathan,

I've been reading the FS documentation to download for free from the website, including the FSDN, and I want to study the code samples contained in the Jaws share scripts,  but I haven't found how to access the code. For instance, I want to have a look at the VKSelect scripts, but whenever I try to open it, a message pops up saying that this script is present in the .JSD documentation but not in the default.JSS file, so I can't really look into the code.

Is there another way in which I can access the codes?

just to clarify for those who might be interested, I doubt the ml at https://www.freelists.org/list/jawsscripting is the same as the one I (recently) mentioned at groups.io.

there also is another ml at freelists that deals with JAWS scripts which seems to be more of a discussion themed ml.

Hi Stan,
Call up task manager with shift control + escape and control tab to the startup tab and uncheck it.
Assuming you are using windows 10.
In 7, you need to run a utility called msconfig with the run edit box which you get with windows + R.

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, David. One way I have found to avoid problems with JAWS and apps is to avoid using the JAWS Settings migration feature between versions of JAWS. I make all changes to JAWS settings in new versions of JAWS manually. I also make a file noting all changes which I have made to JAWS that change default behavior. This way, If I see that something is not working as desired with JAWS, I check by using the INSERT plus SPACE, followed by Z command. If the undesired behavior does not persist when Default alternate user directory mode is enabled, I have a complete list of changes I have made to JAWS Default Settings, and can reverse them to see which of these changes has resulted in the undesired behavior of JAWS.

Hi, David. The only thing I can recommend is, before you do your repair, go into Utilities>Explore My Settings, and remove all settings files. This is based on the behavior of INSERT plus SPACE, followed by Z. This runs JAWS with no settings configuration files in effect. Then do a JAWS repair, and see if this fixes the problem.

First, I want to say that the problem I’m about to describe is likely not a reproducible JAWS bug but is something which seems to be some sort of corruption unique to my profile.

I’m using JAWS 2021, Brave 1.18.75, Windows 10 Pro, 20H2, Dell Lattitude E7270.

This problem did not occur using my old Dell OptiPlex.

The problem does not occur with other browsers.

When I open a page in Brave all navigation commands work as expected until I navigate to the address bar by either pressing ctrl-L or alt-D.

When the address bar gains focus JAWS speaks it as it should. However, cursor navigation commands do not speak as I navigate with left/right arrow keys and selection commands along with ctrl-C do not allow me to copy the URL to the clipboard.

If I press insert-space, followed by Z to open a temporary default profile navigation commands work as expected.

As soon as I toggle back to my own profile I cannot navigate, select or copy the URL.

Here is what I have done so far.

  1. Run the JAWS 2021 installer to initiate a repair. Same behavior after the repair.
  2. As I use Leasey I then uninstalled that program. Restarting the PC without Leasey still did not fix the problem.
  3. Reinstalled Leasey with no change after PC restart.

I’m wondering if there are specific files in my user settings folder (not shared settings) which I could delete to see if that might fix the issue.

Feedback is appreciated.

Hi Everyone. Thanks to those of you who responded.

 

 

 

For the record, I’m using 2016. But I think I solved my own problem. I started getting “error” messages from MS (and one message that said “updating Office”. I don’t have a clue why I got them, especially the “updating” message). I then called Microsoft disability line and the woman was about to take over my computer when I was called away by an unavoidable interruption. Understand, I had already rebooted once with no change. When I finally got back to the computer, I rebooted again before calling Microsoft back. But the problem was gone! So, definitely something had gone wrong and, without my knowing how or why, is now fixed.

You might be right about this.

 

And, that makes problems harder to resolve, because not everyone has the same experiences.

 

Recently, for example, I’ve been having issues with my Outlook address books.

 

I’m now no longer able to navigate through and edit e-mail group lists, and I have had to figure out an alternate way to copy e-mail addresses from my address books when needed.

 

I’ve contacted Freedom Scientific about these issues, and they acknowledge them.

 

They say they are related to Microsoft 365 updates.

 

It’s very frustrating, to say the least.

 

It makes me wonder whether the Microsoft accessibility people ever collaborate with Freedom Scientific prior to releasing updates.

I removed HP Smart application and the scanner / printer from the Printers and Scanners applet. I then went to support.hp.com and instead of using the recommended HP Smart that I used initially I chose 'HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software' under the Software - Utility heading.

This runs for a while and you are presented with options to install HP Smart (Recommended) or Full Driver setup. I chose the latter and now the scanner works with OpenBook as well as with JAWS OCR

Subject: Scripts in default user disappeared and Jaws scripting
mailing list
Hello,
It is possible that FS put script definitions in default.jsd that are
not in default.jss. Default.jss does include several "use" statements
that include code from other libraries. Also, the psd d files are used
for the command to insert a function in code, and for the  verification
that parameters are correctly listed for functions.
There is a JAWS scripting list on freelists. This list has most of the
professional scripters on it, so they get impatient if people ask fairly
simple questions. Also, if you ask can I get a script for Application X,
nobody will answer.
Please try to search the archive of over 10 years of scripting history
before asking a question.
Best of luck!
Jonathan Cohn

Most things in the startup don't need to be there, like Office for example.
Many programs put something into the startup to make them open faster when
initially opened.
All you really need in startup are any anti virus/malware programs and any
access technology.
Anything else slows bootup and is taking some resources.

If you go to task manager and to the start up tab you can disable such
things as Microsoft edge from starting.

This is in no way, shape, or form "normal behavior." I don't have any
idea what's coming up, but if you have the opportunity to get sighted
assistance or use a service like Be My Eyes to have a look at what's
going on if the screen reader is not making it easy to figure out I'd
suggest going that route.

I have never seen Edge "starting automatically" such that it presents
a window and a webpage, whether at system startup or otherwise. I
would be very curious to know what's actually occurring here.

It is solved Glen. We initially installed H P Smart. This time we had the option to install that package or the entire H P setup package. We chose that option and apparently there were perhaps more drivers or perhaps Openbook being a bit long in the tooth required a legacy driver not provided in H P Smart.
Whatever, the problem is solved and F S has been notified.

in task manager Did you press on the more details button? if you our just trying to get to the start up tab another way is to use  msconfig.EXE. Just press the windows key type MSCONFIG. EXC then hit enter and go to the start up tab and that will have a link that will take you directly to the start up tab of task manager.

Not sure Dave,
If task manager does not come up, there's something wrong.

Hi Stan,
Call up task manager with shift control + escape and control tab to the startup tab and uncheck it.
Assuming you are using windows 10.
In 7, you need to run a utility called msconfig with the run edit box which you get with windows + R.
HTH.

moderated Openbook setting for typed text.

Tim Ford
 

Hello All,

 

The old versions of Openbook had a scanner option for what they referred to as type or printed text; for typewriter and for more modern proportional font stuff.  Is that option still in OB9?

 

Thanks,

Tim Ford
