moderated JAWS and scheduling an email officeblecfe Outlook

Shai
 

Hello,
I am using JAWS2021 on a Windows 10 machine with Google Chrome version
86 and I am trying to schedule emails to be sent in Office 365 outlook
on the web.
I researched if this had been possible and the site I saw stated to
locate the dropdown on the right of the send button and choose send
later and then pick a date.
I did find a dropdown more actions after I selected the more actions
check box in the compose window but when I press enter on this more
actions drop down all I see there is edit in a separate window.
Is there a setting that needs to be enabled within outlook on the web
for this to work?
Thank you in advance for any responses.

The only reason that it is jumping to $210 is because you did not pay the $150 before the end of the year.

That's now.  But starting in January, an SMA will jump from $150 to $210, so a two-year license at $180 would be cheaper.

If you switch to the home annual license and decide not to renew it, you will then be downgraded to the demo 40 minute version.

I still like the SMA approach, but at some point, I may decide to switch if the annual purchase stays at $90 per year because by 2024, that will be more cost effective.
But, not even the Shadow knows if that price will stay the same ....

If you switch to the subscription license of JAWS, that is a non-perpetual license that must be purchased and renewed every year. You can still purchase a full license with an SMA and get a perpetual license for that version of JAWS and use it for as long as you like. It won't expire whether you choose to keep purchasing an SMA or not. As Windows continues to be updated and your various programs such as Office 365 continue to be updated, how effective the older version of JAWS will remain might be an issue.

The same is true if your SMA runs out, according to a rep at Vispero.  I had the 20 version, if I did not renew my SMA because it had run out, I could still use JAWS 20.  The kicker is though, from what I can remember, if in a few years 20 was out of date as in not working properly because of the upgrades in technology, I'd have to pay for each succeeding upgrade.

OK I have a full licensed copy of Jaws home edition and have been keeping it  up to date with a SMA.  Lets say I don't purchase another SMA but go for the  annual $90 subscription.  What happens at the end of that subscription if I  don't purchase another subscription?  Do I lose the use of what was a full  license copy?

I guess you will be able to activate your old licensed copy assuming
that you have got an SMA to the latest version of JAWS. If not, it
qwill revert to 40 min mode.

I know this, Sieghard, but, by default, the Apps folder is displayed as a
horizontal grid, and if you exit the Apps folder and reenter it, the view
goes back to the default. You can't set this permanently. This is why I was
telling Madison about the way the folder is laid out. If it were possible to
permanently set another view in the Apps folder, I would have told him/her
this.

Hello Bill,

That all depends on which View yu select, by default it might be showing as
a grid, but you can display this folder just as any other folder with small
icons, medium icons, large icons, a list or details and the standard folder
shortcut keys apply, e.g. Control + Shift + numberRow 6 for Details. If you
select to show it as a list or details all apps are listed one below the
other and of course first letter navigation applies so simply typing J will
take you instantly to Jaws.

Hi, Sieghard. Even if Madison is using Windows 10, one thing he/she may not
know is that in the Apps Folder (accessed through shell:AppsFolder), one
does not use the up and down arrows to navigate through the files. The files
are laid out horizontally, and navigation is accomplished by using the left
and right arrows.
Because of this, the JAWS application could have been missed, if the up and
down arrows were being used as the method of navigation in the Apps Folder.

No offense, but maybe you are not doing something the way it is explained.
If you have Jaws installed on your computer and are using Windows 10 the
Shell:AppsFolder command will definitely show you a list which contains
Jaws.
Are you using Windows 10 or Windows 7? Don't think you said and I don't

Hey there, Madison, BZ here again, grin! There's another way to do this in
windows ten. 1. Hit windows key plus r which will bring up the run dialog.
2. Type shell:appsfolder and then press enter. This will bring up a list
of all your applications. Down arrow until you hear jaws and then hit your
applications key and go down until you hear create shortcut and then press
enter. You'll get a message that will say something like do you want
windows to create a shortcut anyway and then press enter. I'm doing the
message off the top of my head so that's not the verbatim message you'll
hear but this method will create the jaws item on your desktop. If you're
not comfortable doing this and you need assistance, just let me know and
I'll be happy to help you. BZ!

Subject: getting Jaws on the desktop

Hi all,
I went to my desktop and the Jaws shortcut doesn't seem to be on there. I
went into the search box and found Jaws, but when I pressed shift f10 to
create a shortcut I got 5 options:
Run as administrator
Open file location
Unpin from taskbar
Pin to start
Uninstall

Can someone please tell me, what other way (s) can I create a shortcut for
Jaws on my desktop? Even though you've all provided me with other ways to
start Jaws, I'd still like to check and see if my shortcut key is still set
or not. Thanks
Madison

While I can get the shell:AppsFolder to display in any of the typical views, it does not respond to the standard folder shortcut keys to change the view.  The only way I can get there is:

1. Activate the Organize dropdown, Layout Option, Menu Bar toggle.
2. Activate the View Menu (ALT+V), Details option (followed by D).

It also always reverts to Tiles view, it's default, if you close it and open it again later, no matter what view you had chosen for it using the above method.

With NVDA, and I'd have to believe with JAWS (but haven't tested), first letter navigation works regardless of the view chosen.

It's under File > Office Account. Also, for Office 365 there is no Office 2019, this refers only to the stand-alone version. With Office being a subscription product you will always have the latest version.

Dan,

I’m not finding an update option under Files, Options.

Could you say more where you are finding this?

Hi,

Using Office 365 and JAWS 2021.  No major issues other than those that have lingered over last couple of JAWS versions.  Nothing major.

In your office application you need to go to options , under the file menu, and then update.

Good question.

I’ve not heard great things about Jaws and Microsoft 2019, so I have not really looked into it.

I also haven’t bothered to call Microsoft and ask.

Hi All,

A question about office 365 version number.

My word and outlook apps and so on is 2016, when there are updates, why don’t my apps get updated to 2019?

Is there a way to get them updated to 2019?

Joseph,
Those of us using JAWS at a company cannot use the annual home license anyway. We have to use the Professional version.

Milton, what I was suggesting below, was him speaking with his employer about getting the $90 subscription. Whether it had to be done through an administrator or himself.

Hello Listers,

RE: tele1974@gmail.com

He has been responded to and his situation will not be able to be solved by this list or tech support at Freedom Scientific. The individual works for a Federal Government Agency and the individual does not have Admin Rights so he cannot update the computer no matter if he was able to purchase a one year license to get the latest copy of JAWS and install it. The individual has to speak with his Supervisor and the IT Department to unlock the computer so that he has Admin Rights or get the IT Admin to work with him to resolve the problem he is having.

There is no need to respond to him or the list at this time.

Hello, I’m hoping someone has some help, I just received a windows 10 laptop through work, and we are running jaws 18. The issues I’m having are:
1, when hitting alt plus other keys, IE alt+a to go to my explorer favorites, or other similar commands, the command works maybe 25 percent of the time. Sometimes I have to repeatedly hit the command, and sometimes it just doesn’t work at all. I’ve not found this with previous versions of windows running jaws 18.

2, the other issue I have is that when I am typing into an edit field, such as a search field on a search engine, or in any other explorer based program, many of the characters I type are not entering into the box. It’s almost as if there is a lag of some kind. I will have to go back and add about half the characters I’ve typed back in, as only fragments of words show up in the box.
I’m hoping this makes sense and that someone may have some suggestions.
Thanks,
Kurt

Hello Bill,

That all depends on which View yu select, by default it might be showing as a grid, but you can display this folder just as any other folder with small icons, medium icons, large icons, a list or details and the standard folder shortcut keys apply, e.g. Control + Shift + numberRow 6 for Details. If you select to show it as a list or details all apps are listed one below the other and of course first letter navigation applies so simply typing J will take you instantly to Jaws.

Hi, Sieghard. Even if Madison is using Windows 10, one thing he/she may not know is that in the Apps Folder (accessed through shell:AppsFolder), one does not use the up and down arrows to navigate through the files. The files are laid out horizontally, and navigation is accomplished by using the left and right arrows.
Because of this, the JAWS application could have been missed, if the up and down arrows were being used as the method of navigation in the Apps Folder.

No offense, but maybe you are not doing something the way it is explained.
If you have Jaws installed on your computer and are using Windows 10 the Shell:AppsFolder command will definitely show you a list which contains Jaws.
Are you using Windows 10 or Windows 7? Don't think you said and I don't recall if anybody asked.
