Re: is there a guide for working in Windows 10?

Peter Tesar
 

Hello,

The best way is to search the web for Windows 10 and the word "guide" or other words like "basic", "easy" or "beginner".

The web is your best bet and learn to use it. There is a lot of information out there.

Re: Differences: Win 10 on 2 computers, no DVD drive displayed.

Peter Tesar
 

On the PC that does not recognize the DVD drive, there is an audio/music disk inserted.

"This PC" shows Local Drives C: and D:. No DVD drive.

In the command prompt, I typed the followingon the command line:
vol e:
vol f:
vol g:

In each case the message is:
The system cannot find the path specified.

I tried the search box using the Windows key:
The message is:
cannot communicate with the scanner, ...

From the run box using Windows+r I get:
E: is not available, be sure the drive is connected..

I no longer have access to the DVD drive on the one computer. The other computer shows the DVD drive in "This PC" but the auto play still does not work.

Re: Need to open a text from inside WORD 2013

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Peter, I get what you are saying. I am accustomed to being able to have
access to a directory, which, of course, I can do by just getting into
documents, but for all of these years, I have been able to hit Control-O
and shift tab to directory, arrow to document I want. So in that regard,
it would seem that there has been a bit of regression?

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Subject: Need to open a text from inside WORD 2013

Ann, Thanks for the many hot keys, PC and the others.

I don't understand your explaining how to open a text file. Perhaps you
mean to open a recent document.

You say:

While you are in the open dialog, tab once to 'type' and put in txt.

What is what you call the "open dialogue"? Perhaps we are in different
places.

I use ctrl+o and I hear "backstage, open tab".

There is a list of recently opened documents.

I tab and arrow around, and there is no word "type". Perhaps this is the
problem using the ribbon, when do I tab and when to arrow? Arrow up or
down, or left or right.

I know about using the Windows key to open a search box. If I type in a
text file name then Notepad opens that file.

I need to open a non-recent text file from inside WORD. How do I get an
edit box, into which I can type the path/filename, from inside WORD?

Thanks.

Open only works for the types in that box. I always go to documents and
press enter on the one I want.

Also. If you are using windows 7 or later, you can type the document
name in the search field that you get when you press the windows key, and
bypass 'open' altogether.

Good luck!

Re: JFW 17, Open Book and Remote Access

Brent Harding
 

I believe so. Open Book, as far as I know, uses its own voicing and isn't dependent on any version of Jaws. As far as remote access goes, it is my understanding that you buy that add-on one time and have it forever, as long as you have authorization to trun 17, or pay the upgrade fee to get it.

Re: Need to open a text from inside WORD 2013

Ann Byrne
 

p.s. That assumes you are looking in the folder containing the file--documents? Word only sees the file types it is expecting; so you have to tell it to look through all kinds of files, hence *.* instead of *.docx.

good luck.

Re: Need to open a text from inside WORD 2013

Ann Byrne
 

That sounds good. Press the tab key when it says open, and you should get to a field that says 'type'. the type is usually *.doc, *.doc, and some others in a list. At the bottom of the list is *.*, which is what you want.

after the pdf has been opened, use the JAWS cursor to find it 3 or 4

I don't know of any keystroke, but it would be neat if there is one.

interactions with services on-line such as banking and shopping, in
addition to many web apps found in both companies and government

designed to make it more efficient when navigating web-based
applications with the Virtual Cursor as the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW or
CTRL+LEFT and
CTRL+RIGHT ARROW commands move by control instead of character and word.
This makes navigation such as moving across toolbars, tab strips, and
navigation links more like navigating around a desktop application.
Pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice
quickly changes to the traditional navigation by character, word,
line, sentence, and paragraph so you can review the text of the
control. Smart Navigation resumes when you move to a different
control by
pressing UP or DOWN ARROW or TAB.
Alternatively, you can use the INSERT+X command to quickly toggle
between Smart Navigation and the more traditional character and word
navigation depending on the type of web site you are navigating.


For example, if you use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to move across
a tab strip, you might hear JAWS announce something like; "Home tab
selected,"
"Insert
tab," and "Page Layout tab." If you wanted to review the items on the
tab strip character by character, press the Say Character (NUM PAD
5), Say Word (INSERT+NUM PAD 5), or Say Line (INSERT+UP ARROW)
commands twice
quickly.
You can now navigate by character or word until you press DOWN ARROW
to move away from the tab strip to another control.

Smart Navigation is off by default. To turn it on, there are a few ways.

The quickest way to enable Smart Navigation is through the Startup
Wizard which automatically launches after JAWS is installed. When the
wizard starts, select the Next button until you reach the Common
Options page. You will be focused on a group of radio buttons where
you can use the ARROW keys to choose the Smart Navigation option you
want to use (Controls and Tables or Controls). Pressing TAB moves you
to another group of radio buttons that allow you to select how Forms
Mode activates. For the best experience with Smart Navigation, it is
recommended that users set Forms Mode to Semi-Auto or Manual.
This prevents JAWS from unexpectedly turning on Forms Mode while
navigating with the ARROW keys. Once you have changed the options you
want, continue selecting Next until you reach the Braille Settings
page and then select Finish to save your changes. Smart Navigation
will now be enabled for any environments that use the Virtual Cursor.

Alternatively, Smart Navigation can be configured through Settings
Center or Quick Settings. For instance, you may want to use Smart
Navigation in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer.

You can also temporarily toggle Smart Navigation on or off using the
INSERT+X command. For instance, if you have configured Smart
INSERT+Navigation to
be enabled
by default and you encounter a web page where you would prefer not to
use it, you can press INSERT+X to turn it off and use the more
traditional navigation.
JAWS will switch back to Smart Navigation when focus moves away from
the browser or you navigate to a different web site. This command is
also useful if you do not want to use the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly to switch to standard navigation. It
offers the additional benefit of not automatically switching back to
Smart Navigation when you move to a different control with the UP or
DOWN ARROW keys. You can just press
INSERT+X
again to toggle back to Smart Navigation when you are ready.

Note: When using this command to toggle Smart Navigation under
certain circumstances such as inside a table, focus will not always
remain at the location of the toggle. This is because the virtual
document is reformatted as JAWS goes in and out of Screen Layout.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, JAWS will work in Screen Layout.
This presents pages in the virtual buffer similar to how they appear
visually on the screen. Toolbar buttons or other lists of controls
that are visually laid out horizontally on the screen are displayed
on one line in the virtual document, allowing a single press of the
DOWN ARROW to skip the entire toolbar instead of having to move from
button to button to get past it.

For a great example, please try JAWS 17 on a web form such as the
WebTrack sample form on the Surf's Up pages. On this page, you will
be able to see the power of navigating more efficiently with the DOWN
ARROW then in previous versions.


Smart Navigation offers two modes, Controls and Tables, or Controls.
Controls and Tables offers the most complete experience with Smart
Navigation and is the mode that is enabled when using the INSERT+X
toggle.

When set to Controls and Tables and you are currently not in a table,
most web-based controls, including, but not limited to, buttons,
links, edit fields, list boxes, tree views, and headings, are treated
as single units when navigating by character or word. Performing a
Say Character, Say Word, and Say Line command twice quickly while
focused on a control will switch to character and word Navigation so
you can use the traditional navigation by character, word, line,
sentence, and paragraph to review a control, such as the text of a
button or link, in greater detail. Smart Navigation by controls
automatically resumes when you move to another control using TAB or UP or
DOWN ARROW.

If focused inside of a table, the RIGHT and LEFT ARROW keys move
between columns while the UP and DOWN ARROW keys move between rows.
If you press RIGHT ARROW to move from the last column in the current
row to the first column of

the next row, an ascending sound is heard. If you press LEFT ARROW to
move from the first column in the current row to the last column in
the prior row, a descending sound is heard. JAWS also announces the
number of the row that was moved to.

When focused in a cell and it contains any controls, such as a
heading, or an edit field, pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly will switch to control navigation,
and performing these commands again twice quickly will switch to
character and
word navigation.
If the cell does not contain controls, you can only switch to
character and word navigation. Moving focus away from the current
table cell using LEFT or RIGHT ARROW will switch back to the prior
navigation level, for example, pressing RIGHT ARROW while in
character and word navigation will return to Smart Navigation in
tables as soon as you move to a different cell. When you are in
control navigation, or character and word navigation, pressing UP or
DOWN ARROW will move to and read the entire row. Pressing UP or DOWN
ARROW from the beginning or end of the table will also resume Smart
Navigation by
Controls and Tables.

For an example of using Smart Navigation in tables, visit the Tables
with JAWS and MAGic page on the Surf's Up pages.

When set to Controls and focus is not in a table, navigation is the
same as the Controls and Tables option. The only difference is that
if you encounter a table, you will need to use the standard table
reading commands (CTRL+ALT+ARROW keys) or the Table layer
(INSERT+SPACEBAR, t) to navigate the table.


When Smart navigation is active, press ALT+DELETE or INSERT+TAB to
have JAWS

announce the current Smart Navigation level.

New Sound Indication for Links

As you navigate by line with Smart Navigation active, JAWS plays a
sound if the current line contains one or more links which would
generally be displayed on separate lines when you are not in Smart
Navigation. This sound helps you

identify that a link exists and gives you a chance to pause to hear
about it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it. To keep this
sound from being

too intrusive, it is not heard if a line contains a link that is
preceeded by less than five characters. For instance, a bulleted or
numbered list that

contains a link directly after the number or bullet.

Use Settings Center to Configure Settings for a Specific Web Site

In JAWS 17, you can now apply settings changes to a specific web site
domain

using Settings Center. For instance, if you use Smart Navigation and
you have a particular web site where you would prefer not to have
this feature active, you can open Settings Center from the current
site and
turn it off.
Smart
Navigation will continue working on all other web sites.

To configure web site specific settings, do the following:

list of 6 items
1. Open the web site where you want settings changes to apply.
2. Press INSERT+F2, select Settings Center, and press ENTER.
3. Press CTRL+SHIFT+W to open the settings file associated with the
currently active web site. Alternatively, press SHIFT+TAB to move to
the application list, press CTRL+HOME to move to the top of the list,
and then press DOWN ARROW one time to move to the settings file for
the
current site.
For example, if you open Settings Center from the Freedom Scientific
web site, you should

see something like www.freedomscientific.com (Domain).
4. From the Search edit box, type all or part of the setting you want
to change. For example, "smart" for Smart Navigation, "Forms" for
Forms Mode options, etc.
5. Press DOWN ARROW to move to the filtered results of the Settings
Center tree view and make your preferred settings changes.
6. Press TAB to move to the OK button and activate it with the
SPACEBAR. The

changes are made and saved. Settings Center closes.
list end

Now, whatever you have set for the current web site should only be
applied when any pages on this site are open and have focus. For
example, if you set Smart Navigation to Controls and Tables for the
Freedom Scientific web site,

it should be off for all other web sites which is the default, unless
you are on Freedomscientific.com.

New Options Added to Startup Wizard

The Startup Wizard contains a series of pages that allow users to
quickly configure some of the more commonly used JAWS options
including speech settings, startup options, keyboard settings,
verbosity options, and braille settings.

The Startup Wizard automatically launches after a full install of
JAWS, but can be accessed any time through the JAWS Help menu. In
JAWS 17, we have added a few more options we expect users will want
convenient
access to.

list of 2 items
. The page which follows the Run JAWS Settings page is now called
Common Options. It contains new controls to configure Smart
Navigation and Forms Mode.
. A new Braille Translation Settings page has been added directly
after the Verbosity Settings page and before the Braille Settings
page. It contains the following new options:

list of 3 items nesting level 1
. Language: Use this combo box to specify the Braille language. For
example,

English, Spanish, French, German, and so on.
. Output: Use this combo box to configure the output mode for reading
Braille on your display. The first option is always Computer Braille.
The other available options depend on the currently selected language.
For example, when the language is set to English United States, the
available output modes are U.S.
English Grade 1, U.S. English Grade 2, Unified English Braille Grade
1, and Unified English Braille Grade 2. If you set the language to
French, the available modes are French Grade 1 and French Grade 2.
. Input Use this combo box to specify the input mode used when typing
Braille from the Perkins-style keyboard on your display. The first
option is

always
Computer Braille. The other available option depends on the currently
selected output mode. For instance, if you have chosen to display
Unified English Braille Grade 2, then you can choose to type in
either Computer Braille or Unified English Braille Grade 2. This
setting is not available if the selected output mode is Computer
Braille, or the selected output mode does not support input.
list end nesting level 1
list end

Create domain specific scripts for Web Pages and Web Applications

JAWS has always provided the ability to script desktop applications,
enabling many non-standard applications to be made accessible to JAWS
users.

In recent
years, however, more and more applications are being developed to run
inside

web browsers. For example, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Docs are
web applications that allow you to create, edit, and save documents,
as well as collaborate with other users, directly through web pages
opened in Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Since each web application can offer its own unique functionality,
the JAWS scripts for the web browser are too general to be of use for
specific
pages.
JAWS 17 extends the scripting functionality to enable you to create
scripts that only load when a particular web site is being accessed,
so you can customize a web page or application to your specific needs.
For instance, if you created scripts for www.microsoft.com, these
scripts would be loaded for any

page
opened on the Microsoft web site. Domain specific scripts are loaded
on top of the browser scripts so that JAWS can fall back to the
general scripts in situations where a domain specific script behavior
is not available. This gives scripters much more control when
scripting a web-based application for a client at a job site as they
can create specific functionality for the application without
affecting
how JAWS performs on other web pages.

To aid in creating domain specific scripts, three new script
functions have been added.

list of 3 items
. GetDocumentXML: This function obtains well-formed XML from the Dom
Server for parsing using the MSXML com object.
. PerformActionOnElementWithTagAndAttribute: This function finds an
element in the DOM by tag and attribute/value pair and performs an
action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible, doDefaultAction,
leftClick, or
rightClick.
. PerformActionOnElementWithID: This function finds an element in the
DOM by

unique ID and performs an action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible,
doDefaultAction, leftClick or rightClick.
list end

Using these functions, you could write scripts to do things like find
and speak a particular heading, add the numbers in the last row of a
table and speak the total, and much more, all without moving the
Virtual
Cursor.

To demonstrate domain-specific scripting, we have included sample
SharePoint

scripts that allow you to access web-based toolbars on a SharePoint
domain using the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke. To enable these sample
scripts, do the
following:

list of 2 items
1. Create a confignames.ini file in your JAWS user settings folder
located at C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\17.0\Settings\enu.
2. Add the following lines.
[Domains]
fsservices-my.sharepoint.com=SharePointWeb
list end

If the scripts are not working, meaning that toolbars cannot be
activated with the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke, check the address of the
current domain.
If
necessary, add another line to your confignames.ini to enable that
domain to

be recognized so that the sharePoint sample scripts load.

Liblouis Braille Translator now included for English

JAWS 17 has switched to the popular and widely accepted open-source
Liblouis

braille translator. This new translation now offers both contracted
and uncontracted Unified English Braille (UEB) and the more
traditional Contracted English Braille (CEB) when reading and writing.
Starting in 2016, UEB will become the standard in the United States.
Switching now to Liblouis will ensure JAWS offers the latest
standards for
UEB translation.

New in JAWS Touch Screen Support

Since JAWS 15, users have had the ability to interact with the touch
screens

found on various devices like the Dell Venue series of Windows tablets.
Using
one and multi-finger gestures such as taps, flicks, and swipes, users
navigate to and activate controls, read text, and perform other
common JAWS functions.
In JAWS 17, we have continued to enhance touch screen support by
providing access to the Windows touch keyboard as well as adding the
ability to edit and select text in documents, messages, or web pages
right from the touch screen.

Support for the Windows Touch Keyboard

JAWS 17 offers full support for the Windows touch keyboard, enabling
you to

write documents, email messages, and fill out forms on the Internet right
on your device's touch screen if you do not have access
to
a

physical keyboard. While a regular keyboard is still recommended for
writing
lengthy documents or performing complex editing tasks,
using

the Touch keyboard is convenient for writing a quick note, composing
or replying to an email, or filling out a form on a web site.

To activate the Touch Keyboard, double tap the Start Touch Keyboard
button on the Desktop, or perform the new JAWS gesture, four-finger
swipe down then up. JAWS announces "opened Touch Keyboard" and plays
an
ascending sound.
Once enabled, the keyboard is positioned in the bottom
part
of
the screen and each key is represented by a button. Use flick gestures to
move to each key, or drag your finger around the screen
to
explore
and locate keys. While exploring, JAWS plays a unique set of sounds
to alert

you when you enter or leave the area of the screen
containing
the touch keyboard. Once you become familiar with the touch keyboard
layout,

you can tap at the location of each key. To close the touch keyboard,
perform another four-finger swipe down then up. JAWS announces
"closed touch keyboard" and plays a descending sound.

JAWS offers two different modes for typing characters:

list of 2 items
. Standard Typing: A key is typed when a double tap or split tap is
performed on the screen after exploring to any of the keyboard
buttons. If alternative
characters are available for the current keyboard
button, a triple tap will open a panel of alternative keys related to
the selected
key. Performing a triple tap on any keyboard button
in
the alternative characters panel will close the panel. Standard
Typing is the default mode.
. Touch Typing: A key is typed when the finger is lifted from any of
the keyboard buttons, or a split tap is performed on the selected
keyboard button.
If alternative characters are available for the
current keyboard button, a split double tap will open a panel of
alternative keys related
to the selected key. Performing a split double tap on
any keyboard button in the alternative characters panel will close
the panel.

list end

Use the new Touch Keyboard settings group located in the main
Keyboard group

in Settings center to change the typing mode as well as choose
whether JAWS announces characters, words, both characters and words,
or is silent as you type using the touch keyboard. You can also
change how you are notified when the touch keyboard or the panel of
alternate
characters opens and closes.

Note: Changing the feedback for the touch keyboard is separate from
the feedback for the physical keyboard. This means you can have JAWS
say nothing

when
using a regular keyboard, but continue to announce both characters
and words

when using the touch keyboard.

Text Selection and Other Improvements in Text Reading Mode

Text reading is one of the three gesture modes that can be activated
by rotating two fingers on the screen. JAWS 17 will now also
automatically switch to Text Reading if you double tap on an element
that
supports cursor
navigation such as an article in the News app, or the
text
area of
an editing application like Microsoft Word. When Text Reading is
activated using a double tap on a text element, for instance, the
second paragraph of a document, JAWS attempts to position the cursor
at the location of the double tap.

When Text Reading is active, flicking left or right moves by
character, flicking left or right with two fingers moves by word,
flicking up or down moves by line, flicking up or down with two
fingers moves by paragraph, flicking left or right with three fingers
moves to the beginning or end of a line, and flicking up or down with
three fingers moves to the top or bottom of the text area. In
addition, you can now flick up or down with four fingers to move by
page, similar to using PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN. These gestures also
move the cursor, enabling you to navigate to the location in a
document where you want to insert text or begin selecting text. For
example, you could flick up

with two fingers to move to the prior paragraph, flick left or right
to position the focus on a blank line, and then begin typing to
insert text at that location.

Performing a triple tap on the screen with one finger will now toggle
text selection on or off. When enabled, using any of the above text
reading gestures will select the specific unit as well as move to it.
For example, to move to

and select the next line, perform a triple tap and then flick down.
Text will continue to be selected as you navigate until you perform a
triple tap again

to turn it off. To read currently selected text, you can now perform
a two-finger triple tap.

Other Touch Screen Improvements

Dragging a finger around the screen to explore and hear each element
now works in Text Reading mode in addition to Touch Navigation mode.
If Text Reading is currently active and you explore to an item that
does not support this mode, JAWS will automatically switch back to
Touch Navigation. As you explore, you can now have JAWS announce the
character or word at the current location

by performing a split tap or split double tap.

If you encounter an element that does not support standard cursor
navigation, such as a button, or an item in a list, performing a
three-finger swipe down then up now opens a Virtual Viewer window
containing the name of the element. You can then use the navigation
gestures described above to review this information.
This is useful if you want to review a control in greater detail that
you did not quite understand when it was announced by JAWS during
exploration or when tapping it. When this mode is active, you will
not be able to navigate to other items on the screen. If you explore
outside of the Virtual Viewer, JAWS plays a sound to indicate you are
no longer in the window. Performing the three-finger swipe down then
up gesture again will close the Virtual Viewer.

Tablet Orientation Notification

JAWS now indicates in both speech and braille when the screen
orientation changes between portrait and landscape. When changing to
landscape, JAWS says "landscape, with home button to the left" or
"landscape, with home button to

the right", depending on the position of the tablet. When changing to
portrait, JAWS says "portrait" or "portrait flipped."

Explore Scripts

A new Explore Scripts shortcut has been added to the Utilities folder
in Windows 8 and later and the Explore JAWS submenu located under the
JAWS program group in Windows 7 and earlier. Selecting this shortcut
opens the folder where the shared script files are stored.

Script Compatibility Mode

By default, scripts compiled using the Script Manager or the
scompile.exe command line tool in JAWS 17 will not work with prior
versions of JAWS. This is due to changes in JAWS 17 to improve the
localization process. In order to compile scripts that will work in
JAWS 17 as well as prior versions, select the new Compatibility Mode
option from the File Menu in Script Manager, or use the -c command
line
option if using scompile.exe.

Note: If you compile scripts with the compatibility option, and your
scripts

use messages defined in JSM files that ship with JAWS 17, those
messages will always be in English regardless of the language of the
JAWS version that is running.

Sports Scores Lookup Sources Temporarily Removed from Research It

Until we can get cooperation from ESPN to allow access to their
sports results using the Research It feature, the MLB, NFL, NBA, and
NCAA Scores lookup sources have been removed. We hope to add them
back in the future once a solution is reached.

Merge Utility No Longer Available

Major changes have been made to improve the JAWS localization process.
This included reorganizing many of the JAWS settings files. Due to
these changes, the Merge utility is no longer installed with JAWS 17
as settings from prior

versions cannot be merged. We are planning a solution for the future
which will replace this utility and provide an even greater benefit
for our customers.

Take care.
Mike

Hello,

I just switched from WORD 2003 to 2013. The menu bar has been
changed
to
a ribbon menu for some years now. These ribbons are proving to be an
initial hurdle. I'm tabbing and arrowing in a fruitless search for
what
I
want.

When the ribbons first came out, Ihad heard that you could use some
of the old Menu Bar hot keys, but that isn't exactly true.

Alt+F doesn't bring up the old File menu.

Some of you provided the hot keys for changing the font.

How do I do a "save as"? That was in the File menu.
If I do a "alt+f a" I get a save as tab. There is no edit field.

How do I open a file? The ctrl+o gives me the open tab and recently
opened documents.
There is no edit field to type in the drive, path file-name that I
used to do.

I got started by using the tree to select an existing WORD document
It was opened by WORD. I could then open it as a recent document.


I just found the JAWS training, as DAISY books. These can be
downloaded so I downloaded the VirtualRibbonMenus.exe. It is an
executable file.
How do I get it into a DAISY book format to transfer to my DAISY
player?

Thanks for any help.

Need to open a text from inside WORD 2013

Peter Tesar
 

Ann, Thanks for the many hot keys, PC and the others.

I don't understand your explaining how to open a text file. Perhaps you mean to open a recent document.

You say:

While you are in the open dialog, tab once to 'type' and put in txt.

What is what you call the "open dialogue"? Perhaps we are in different places.

I use ctrl+o and I hear "backstage, open tab".

There is a list of recently opened documents.

I tab and arrow around, and there is no word "type". Perhaps this is the problem using the ribbon, when do I tab and when to arrow? Arrow up or down, or left or right.

I know about using the Windows key to open a search box. If I type in a text file name then Notepad opens that file.

I need to open a non-recent text file from inside WORD. How do I get an edit box, into which I can type the path/filename, from inside WORD?

Thanks.

Also. If you are using windows 7 or later, you can type the document name in the search field that you get when you press the windows key, and bypass 'open' altogether.

Good luck!

Differences: Win 10 on 2 computers, no DVD drive displayed.

Peter Tesar
 

Hello,

I now have Windows 10 and the latest JAWS 17 installedon 2 computers.

On the desktop, "This PC" displays the local drives. On 1 computer, the DVD drive is displayed while on the other it is not.

I cannot access a DVD if it is not displayed in "This PC".

The other problem is that, since upgrading to Windows 10, the auto play no longer works on both computers.

The:
use auto play for all media ...
is checked.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Peter T.

after the pdf has been opened, use the JAWS cursor to find it 3 or 4 lines
down from the top of the reader window. it'll be announced as a fraction,
for example 1/20, that is page 1 out of 20 pages.
I don't know of any keystroke, but it would be neat if there is one.

Hi All,

Below are the direct download links for Jaws 17 for both 32 & 64 bit
systems. Also, what's new is below the download links.

32 Bit:

What's new:

JAWS 17 Features
Smart Navigation, More Efficient Interaction with Complex Web Pages
and Applications

Today and in the future, users will be faced with an increased need to
work with complex web forms, tables, and even applications that run
inside of a web browser. This will impact your day to day interactions
with services on-line such as banking and shopping, in addition to
many web apps found in both companies and government agencies. For
instance, Internet Explorer can be used to log onto a Microsoft
SharePoint server to collaborate with other co-workers and create and
store documents. The new Smart NavigationT feature is designed to make
it more efficient when navigating web-based applications with the
Virtual Cursor as the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW or CTRL+LEFT and
CTRL+RIGHT ARROW commands move by control instead of character and word.
This makes navigation such as moving across toolbars, tab strips, and
navigation links more like navigating around a desktop application.
Pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice
quickly changes to the traditional navigation by character, word,
line, sentence, and paragraph so you can review the text of the
control. Smart Navigation resumes when you move to a different control by
pressing UP or DOWN ARROW or TAB.
Alternatively, you can use the INSERT+X command to quickly toggle
between Smart Navigation and the more traditional character and word
navigation depending on the type of web site you are navigating.


For example, if you use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to move across a
tab strip, you might hear JAWS announce something like; "Home tab
selected,"
"Insert
tab," and "Page Layout tab." If you wanted to review the items on the
tab strip character by character, press the Say Character (NUM PAD 5),
Say Word (INSERT+NUM PAD 5), or Say Line (INSERT+UP ARROW) commands twice
quickly.
You can now navigate by character or word until you press DOWN ARROW
to move away from the tab strip to another control.

Smart Navigation is off by default. To turn it on, there are a few ways.

The quickest way to enable Smart Navigation is through the Startup
Wizard which automatically launches after JAWS is installed. When the
wizard starts, select the Next button until you reach the Common
Options page. You will be focused on a group of radio buttons where
you can use the ARROW keys to choose the Smart Navigation option you
want to use (Controls and Tables or Controls). Pressing TAB moves you
to another group of radio buttons that allow you to select how Forms
Mode activates. For the best experience with Smart Navigation, it is
recommended that users set Forms Mode to Semi-Auto or Manual.
This prevents JAWS from unexpectedly turning on Forms Mode while
navigating with the ARROW keys. Once you have changed the options you
want, continue selecting Next until you reach the Braille Settings
page and then select Finish to save your changes. Smart Navigation
will now be enabled for any environments that use the Virtual Cursor.

Alternatively, Smart Navigation can be configured through Settings
Center or Quick Settings. For instance, you may want to use Smart
Navigation in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer.

You can also temporarily toggle Smart Navigation on or off using the
INSERT+X command. For instance, if you have configured Smart
INSERT+Navigation to
be enabled
by default and you encounter a web page where you would prefer not to
use it, you can press INSERT+X to turn it off and use the more
traditional navigation.
JAWS will switch back to Smart Navigation when focus moves away from
the browser or you navigate to a different web site. This command is
also useful if you do not want to use the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly to switch to standard navigation. It
offers the additional benefit of not automatically switching back to
Smart Navigation when you move to a different control with the UP or
DOWN ARROW keys. You can just press
INSERT+X
again to toggle back to Smart Navigation when you are ready.

Note: When using this command to toggle Smart Navigation under certain
circumstances such as inside a table, focus will not always remain at
the location of the toggle. This is because the virtual document is
reformatted as JAWS goes in and out of Screen Layout.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, JAWS will work in Screen Layout.
This presents pages in the virtual buffer similar to how they appear
visually on the screen. Toolbar buttons or other lists of controls
that are visually laid out horizontally on the screen are displayed on
one line in the virtual document, allowing a single press of the DOWN
ARROW to skip the entire toolbar instead of having to move from button
to button to get past it.

For a great example, please try JAWS 17 on a web form such as the
WebTrack sample form on the Surf's Up pages. On this page, you will
be able to see the power of navigating more efficiently with the DOWN
ARROW then in previous versions.


Smart Navigation offers two modes, Controls and Tables, or Controls.
Controls and Tables offers the most complete experience with Smart
Navigation and is the mode that is enabled when using the INSERT+X toggle.

When set to Controls and Tables and you are currently not in a table,
most web-based controls, including, but not limited to, buttons,
links, edit fields, list boxes, tree views, and headings, are treated
as single units when navigating by character or word. Performing a Say
Character, Say Word, and Say Line command twice quickly while focused
on a control will switch to character and word Navigation so you can
use the traditional navigation by character, word, line, sentence, and
paragraph to review a control, such as the text of a button or link,
in greater detail. Smart Navigation by controls automatically resumes
when you move to another control using TAB or UP or DOWN ARROW.

If focused inside of a table, the RIGHT and LEFT ARROW keys move
between columns while the UP and DOWN ARROW keys move between rows. If
you press RIGHT ARROW to move from the last column in the current row
to the first column of

the next row, an ascending sound is heard. If you press LEFT ARROW to
move from the first column in the current row to the last column in
the prior row, a descending sound is heard. JAWS also announces the
number of the row that was moved to.

When focused in a cell and it contains any controls, such as a
heading, or an edit field, pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly will switch to control navigation, and
performing these commands again twice quickly will switch to character and
word navigation.
If the cell does not contain controls, you can only switch to
character and word navigation. Moving focus away from the current
table cell using LEFT or RIGHT ARROW will switch back to the prior
navigation level, for example, pressing RIGHT ARROW while in character
and word navigation will return to Smart Navigation in tables as soon
as you move to a different cell. When you are in control navigation,
or character and word navigation, pressing UP or DOWN ARROW will move
to and read the entire row. Pressing UP or DOWN ARROW from the
beginning or end of the table will also resume Smart Navigation by
Controls and Tables.

For an example of using Smart Navigation in tables, visit the Tables
with JAWS and MAGic page on the Surf's Up pages.

When set to Controls and focus is not in a table, navigation is the
same as the Controls and Tables option. The only difference is that if
you encounter a table, you will need to use the standard table reading
commands (CTRL+ALT+ARROW keys) or the Table layer (INSERT+SPACEBAR, t)
to navigate the table.


When Smart navigation is active, press ALT+DELETE or INSERT+TAB to
have JAWS

announce the current Smart Navigation level.

New Sound Indication for Links

As you navigate by line with Smart Navigation active, JAWS plays a
sound if the current line contains one or more links which would
generally be displayed on separate lines when you are not in Smart
Navigation. This sound helps you

identify that a link exists and gives you a chance to pause to hear
about it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it. To keep this
sound from being

too intrusive, it is not heard if a line contains a link that is
preceeded by less than five characters. For instance, a bulleted or
numbered list that

contains a link directly after the number or bullet.

Use Settings Center to Configure Settings for a Specific Web Site

In JAWS 17, you can now apply settings changes to a specific web site
domain

using Settings Center. For instance, if you use Smart Navigation and
you have a particular web site where you would prefer not to have this
feature active, you can open Settings Center from the current site and
turn it off.
Smart
Navigation will continue working on all other web sites.

To configure web site specific settings, do the following:

list of 6 items
1. Open the web site where you want settings changes to apply.
2. Press INSERT+F2, select Settings Center, and press ENTER.
3. Press CTRL+SHIFT+W to open the settings file associated with the
currently active web site. Alternatively, press SHIFT+TAB to move to
the application list, press CTRL+HOME to move to the top of the list,
and then press DOWN ARROW one time to move to the settings file for the
current site.
For example, if you open Settings Center from the Freedom Scientific
web site, you should

see something like www.freedomscientific.com (Domain).
4. From the Search edit box, type all or part of the setting you want
to change. For example, "smart" for Smart Navigation, "Forms" for
Forms Mode options, etc.
5. Press DOWN ARROW to move to the filtered results of the Settings
Center tree view and make your preferred settings changes.
6. Press TAB to move to the OK button and activate it with the
SPACEBAR. The

changes are made and saved. Settings Center closes.
list end

Now, whatever you have set for the current web site should only be
applied when any pages on this site are open and have focus. For
example, if you set Smart Navigation to Controls and Tables for the
Freedom Scientific web site,

it should be off for all other web sites which is the default, unless
you are on Freedomscientific.com.

New Options Added to Startup Wizard

The Startup Wizard contains a series of pages that allow users to
quickly configure some of the more commonly used JAWS options
including speech settings, startup options, keyboard settings,
verbosity options, and braille settings.

The Startup Wizard automatically launches after a full install of
JAWS, but can be accessed any time through the JAWS Help menu. In JAWS
17, we have added a few more options we expect users will want convenient
access to.

list of 2 items
. The page which follows the Run JAWS Settings page is now called
Common Options. It contains new controls to configure Smart Navigation
and Forms Mode.
. A new Braille Translation Settings page has been added directly
after the Verbosity Settings page and before the Braille Settings
page. It contains the following new options:

list of 3 items nesting level 1
. Language: Use this combo box to specify the Braille language. For
example,

English, Spanish, French, German, and so on.
. Output: Use this combo box to configure the output mode for reading
Braille on your display. The first option is always Computer Braille.
The other available options depend on the currently selected language.
For example, when the language is set to English United States, the
available output modes are U.S.
English Grade 1, U.S. English Grade 2, Unified English Braille Grade
1, and Unified English Braille Grade 2. If you set the language to
French, the available modes are French Grade 1 and French Grade 2.
. Input Use this combo box to specify the input mode used when typing
Braille from the Perkins-style keyboard on your display. The first
option is

always
Computer Braille. The other available option depends on the currently
selected output mode. For instance, if you have chosen to display
Unified English Braille Grade 2, then you can choose to type in either
Computer Braille or Unified English Braille Grade 2. This setting is
not available if the selected output mode is Computer Braille, or the
selected output mode does not support input.
list end nesting level 1
list end

Create domain specific scripts for Web Pages and Web Applications

JAWS has always provided the ability to script desktop applications,
enabling many non-standard applications to be made accessible to JAWS
users.

In recent
years, however, more and more applications are being developed to run
inside

web browsers. For example, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Docs are
web applications that allow you to create, edit, and save documents,
as well as collaborate with other users, directly through web pages
opened in Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Since each web application can offer its own unique functionality, the
JAWS scripts for the web browser are too general to be of use for specific
pages.
JAWS 17 extends the scripting functionality to enable you to create
scripts that only load when a particular web site is being accessed,
so you can customize a web page or application to your specific needs.
For instance, if you created scripts for www.microsoft.com, these
scripts would be loaded for any

page
opened on the Microsoft web site. Domain specific scripts are loaded
on top of the browser scripts so that JAWS can fall back to the
general scripts in situations where a domain specific script behavior
is not available. This gives scripters much more control when
scripting a web-based application for a client at a job site as they
can create specific functionality for the application without affecting
how JAWS performs on other web pages.

To aid in creating domain specific scripts, three new script functions
have been added.

list of 3 items
. GetDocumentXML: This function obtains well-formed XML from the Dom
Server for parsing using the MSXML com object.
. PerformActionOnElementWithTagAndAttribute: This function finds an
element in the DOM by tag and attribute/value pair and performs an
action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible, doDefaultAction, leftClick, or
rightClick.
. PerformActionOnElementWithID: This function finds an element in the
DOM by

unique ID and performs an action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible,
doDefaultAction, leftClick or rightClick.
list end

Using these functions, you could write scripts to do things like find
and speak a particular heading, add the numbers in the last row of a
table and speak the total, and much more, all without moving the Virtual
Cursor.

To demonstrate domain-specific scripting, we have included sample
SharePoint

scripts that allow you to access web-based toolbars on a SharePoint
domain using the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke. To enable these sample
scripts, do the
following:

list of 2 items
1. Create a confignames.ini file in your JAWS user settings folder
located at C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\17.0\Settings\enu.
2. Add the following lines.
[Domains]
fsservices-my.sharepoint.com=SharePointWeb
list end

If the scripts are not working, meaning that toolbars cannot be
activated with the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke, check the address of the
current domain.
If
necessary, add another line to your confignames.ini to enable that
domain to

be recognized so that the sharePoint sample scripts load.

Liblouis Braille Translator now included for English

JAWS 17 has switched to the popular and widely accepted open-source
Liblouis

braille translator. This new translation now offers both contracted
and uncontracted Unified English Braille (UEB) and the more
traditional Contracted English Braille (CEB) when reading and writing.
Starting in 2016, UEB will become the standard in the United States.
Switching now to Liblouis will ensure JAWS offers the latest standards for
UEB translation.

New in JAWS Touch Screen Support

Since JAWS 15, users have had the ability to interact with the touch
screens

found on various devices like the Dell Venue series of Windows tablets.
Using
one and multi-finger gestures such as taps, flicks, and swipes, users
navigate to and activate controls, read text, and perform other common
JAWS functions.
In JAWS 17, we have continued to enhance touch screen support by
providing access to the Windows touch keyboard as well as adding the
ability to edit and select text in documents, messages, or web pages
right from the touch screen.

Support for the Windows Touch Keyboard

JAWS 17 offers full support for the Windows touch keyboard, enabling
you to

write documents, email messages, and fill out forms on the Internet right
on your device's touch screen if you do not have access to
a

physical keyboard. While a regular keyboard is still recommended for
writing
lengthy documents or performing complex editing tasks,
using

the Touch keyboard is convenient for writing a quick note, composing
or replying to an email, or filling out a form on a web site.

To activate the Touch Keyboard, double tap the Start Touch Keyboard
button on the Desktop, or perform the new JAWS gesture, four-finger
swipe down then up. JAWS announces "opened Touch Keyboard" and plays an
ascending sound.
Once enabled, the keyboard is positioned in the bottom
part
of
the screen and each key is represented by a button. Use flick gestures to
move to each key, or drag your finger around the screen to
explore
and locate keys. While exploring, JAWS plays a unique set of sounds to
alert

you when you enter or leave the area of the screen
containing
the touch keyboard. Once you become familiar with the touch keyboard
layout,

you can tap at the location of each key. To close the touch keyboard,
perform another four-finger swipe down then up. JAWS announces "closed
touch keyboard" and plays a descending sound.

JAWS offers two different modes for typing characters:

list of 2 items
. Standard Typing: A key is typed when a double tap or split tap is
performed on the screen after exploring to any of the keyboard
buttons. If alternative
characters are available for the current keyboard
button, a triple tap will open a panel of alternative keys related to
the selected
key. Performing a triple tap on any keyboard button in
the alternative characters panel will close the panel. Standard Typing
is the default mode.
. Touch Typing: A key is typed when the finger is lifted from any of
the keyboard buttons, or a split tap is performed on the selected
keyboard button.
If alternative characters are available for the
current keyboard button, a split double tap will open a panel of
alternative keys related
to the selected key. Performing a split double tap on
any keyboard button in the alternative characters panel will close the
panel.

list end

Use the new Touch Keyboard settings group located in the main Keyboard
group

in Settings center to change the typing mode as well as choose whether
JAWS announces characters, words, both characters and words, or is
silent as you type using the touch keyboard. You can also change how
you are notified when the touch keyboard or the panel of alternate
characters opens and closes.

Note: Changing the feedback for the touch keyboard is separate from
the feedback for the physical keyboard. This means you can have JAWS
say nothing

when
using a regular keyboard, but continue to announce both characters and
words

when using the touch keyboard.

Text Selection and Other Improvements in Text Reading Mode

Text reading is one of the three gesture modes that can be activated
by rotating two fingers on the screen. JAWS 17 will now also
automatically switch to Text Reading if you double tap on an element that
supports cursor
navigation such as an article in the News app, or the text
area of
an editing application like Microsoft Word. When Text Reading is
activated using a double tap on a text element, for instance, the
second paragraph of a document, JAWS attempts to position the cursor
at the location of the double tap.

When Text Reading is active, flicking left or right moves by
character, flicking left or right with two fingers moves by word,
flicking up or down moves by line, flicking up or down with two
fingers moves by paragraph, flicking left or right with three fingers
moves to the beginning or end of a line, and flicking up or down with
three fingers moves to the top or bottom of the text area. In
addition, you can now flick up or down with four fingers to move by
page, similar to using PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN. These gestures also move
the cursor, enabling you to navigate to the location in a document
where you want to insert text or begin selecting text. For example,
you could flick up

with two fingers to move to the prior paragraph, flick left or right
to position the focus on a blank line, and then begin typing to insert
text at that location.

Performing a triple tap on the screen with one finger will now toggle
text selection on or off. When enabled, using any of the above text
reading gestures will select the specific unit as well as move to it.
For example, to move to

and select the next line, perform a triple tap and then flick down.
Text will continue to be selected as you navigate until you perform a
triple tap again

to turn it off. To read currently selected text, you can now perform a
two-finger triple tap.

Other Touch Screen Improvements

Dragging a finger around the screen to explore and hear each element
now works in Text Reading mode in addition to Touch Navigation mode.
If Text Reading is currently active and you explore to an item that
does not support this mode, JAWS will automatically switch back to
Touch Navigation. As you explore, you can now have JAWS announce the
character or word at the current location

by performing a split tap or split double tap.

If you encounter an element that does not support standard cursor
navigation, such as a button, or an item in a list, performing a
three-finger swipe down then up now opens a Virtual Viewer window
containing the name of the element. You can then use the navigation
gestures described above to review this information.
This is useful if you want to review a control in greater detail that
you did not quite understand when it was announced by JAWS during
exploration or when tapping it. When this mode is active, you will not
be able to navigate to other items on the screen. If you explore
outside of the Virtual Viewer, JAWS plays a sound to indicate you are
no longer in the window. Performing the three-finger swipe down then
up gesture again will close the Virtual Viewer.

Tablet Orientation Notification

JAWS now indicates in both speech and braille when the screen
orientation changes between portrait and landscape. When changing to
landscape, JAWS says "landscape, with home button to the left" or
"landscape, with home button to

the right", depending on the position of the tablet. When changing to
portrait, JAWS says "portrait" or "portrait flipped."

Explore Scripts

A new Explore Scripts shortcut has been added to the Utilities folder
in Windows 8 and later and the Explore JAWS submenu located under the
JAWS program group in Windows 7 and earlier. Selecting this shortcut
opens the folder where the shared script files are stored.

Script Compatibility Mode

By default, scripts compiled using the Script Manager or the
scompile.exe command line tool in JAWS 17 will not work with prior
versions of JAWS. This is due to changes in JAWS 17 to improve the
localization process. In order to compile scripts that will work in
JAWS 17 as well as prior versions, select the new Compatibility Mode
option from the File Menu in Script Manager, or use the -c command line
option if using scompile.exe.

Note: If you compile scripts with the compatibility option, and your
scripts

use messages defined in JSM files that ship with JAWS 17, those
messages will always be in English regardless of the language of the
JAWS version that is running.

Sports Scores Lookup Sources Temporarily Removed from Research It

Until we can get cooperation from ESPN to allow access to their sports
results using the Research It feature, the MLB, NFL, NBA, and NCAA
Scores lookup sources have been removed. We hope to add them back in
the future once a solution is reached.

Merge Utility No Longer Available

Major changes have been made to improve the JAWS localization process.
This included reorganizing many of the JAWS settings files. Due to
these changes, the Merge utility is no longer installed with JAWS 17
as settings from prior

versions cannot be merged. We are planning a solution for the future
which will replace this utility and provide an even greater benefit
for our customers.

Take care.
Mike

Subject: Re: reading page numbers in pdf files with jaws

after the pdf has been opened, use the JAWS cursor to find it 3 or 4 lines
down from the top of the reader window. it'll be announced as a fraction,
for example 1/20, that is page 1 out of 20 pages.
I don't know of any keystroke, but it would be neat if there is one.

What's new:

JAWS 17 Features
Smart Navigation, More Efficient Interaction with Complex Web Pages
and Applications

Today and in the future, users will be faced with an increased need to
work with complex web forms, tables, and even applications that run
inside of a web browser. This will impact your day to day interactions
with services on-line such as banking and shopping, in addition to
many web apps found in both companies and government agencies. For
instance, Internet Explorer can be used to log onto a Microsoft
SharePoint server to collaborate with other co-workers and create and
store documents. The new Smart NavigationT feature is designed to make
it more efficient when navigating web-based applications with the
Virtual Cursor as the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW or CTRL+LEFT and
CTRL+RIGHT ARROW commands move by control instead of character and word.
This makes navigation such as moving across toolbars, tab strips, and
navigation links more like navigating around a desktop application.
Pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice
quickly changes to the traditional navigation by character, word,
line, sentence, and paragraph so you can review the text of the
control. Smart Navigation resumes when you move to a different control by
pressing UP or DOWN ARROW or TAB.
Alternatively, you can use the INSERT+X command to quickly toggle
between Smart Navigation and the more traditional character and word
navigation depending on the type of web site you are navigating.


For example, if you use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to move across a
tab strip, you might hear JAWS announce something like; "Home tab
selected,"
"Insert
tab," and "Page Layout tab." If you wanted to review the items on the
tab strip character by character, press the Say Character (NUM PAD 5),
Say Word (INSERT+NUM PAD 5), or Say Line (INSERT+UP ARROW) commands twice
quickly.
You can now navigate by character or word until you press DOWN ARROW
to move away from the tab strip to another control.

Smart Navigation is off by default. To turn it on, there are a few ways.

The quickest way to enable Smart Navigation is through the Startup
Wizard which automatically launches after JAWS is installed. When the
wizard starts, select the Next button until you reach the Common
Options page. You will be focused on a group of radio buttons where
you can use the ARROW keys to choose the Smart Navigation option you
want to use (Controls and Tables or Controls). Pressing TAB moves you
to another group of radio buttons that allow you to select how Forms
Mode activates. For the best experience with Smart Navigation, it is
recommended that users set Forms Mode to Semi-Auto or Manual.
This prevents JAWS from unexpectedly turning on Forms Mode while
navigating with the ARROW keys. Once you have changed the options you
want, continue selecting Next until you reach the Braille Settings
page and then select Finish to save your changes. Smart Navigation
will now be enabled for any environments that use the Virtual Cursor.

Alternatively, Smart Navigation can be configured through Settings
Center or Quick Settings. For instance, you may want to use Smart
Navigation in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer.

You can also temporarily toggle Smart Navigation on or off using the
INSERT+X command. For instance, if you have configured Smart
INSERT+Navigation to
be enabled
by default and you encounter a web page where you would prefer not to
use it, you can press INSERT+X to turn it off and use the more
traditional navigation.
JAWS will switch back to Smart Navigation when focus moves away from
the browser or you navigate to a different web site. This command is
also useful if you do not want to use the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly to switch to standard navigation. It
offers the additional benefit of not automatically switching back to
Smart Navigation when you move to a different control with the UP or
DOWN ARROW keys. You can just press
INSERT+X
again to toggle back to Smart Navigation when you are ready.

Note: When using this command to toggle Smart Navigation under certain
circumstances such as inside a table, focus will not always remain at
the location of the toggle. This is because the virtual document is
reformatted as JAWS goes in and out of Screen Layout.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, JAWS will work in Screen Layout.
This presents pages in the virtual buffer similar to how they appear
visually on the screen. Toolbar buttons or other lists of controls
that are visually laid out horizontally on the screen are displayed on
one line in the virtual document, allowing a single press of the DOWN
ARROW to skip the entire toolbar instead of having to move from button
to button to get past it.

For a great example, please try JAWS 17 on a web form such as the
WebTrack sample form on the Surf's Up pages. On this page, you will
be able to see the power of navigating more efficiently with the DOWN
ARROW then in previous versions.


Smart Navigation offers two modes, Controls and Tables, or Controls.
Controls and Tables offers the most complete experience with Smart
Navigation and is the mode that is enabled when using the INSERT+X toggle.

When set to Controls and Tables and you are currently not in a table,
most web-based controls, including, but not limited to, buttons,
links, edit fields, list boxes, tree views, and headings, are treated
as single units when navigating by character or word. Performing a Say
Character, Say Word, and Say Line command twice quickly while focused
on a control will switch to character and word Navigation so you can
use the traditional navigation by character, word, line, sentence, and
paragraph to review a control, such as the text of a button or link,
in greater detail. Smart Navigation by controls automatically resumes
when you move to another control using TAB or UP or DOWN ARROW.

If focused inside of a table, the RIGHT and LEFT ARROW keys move
between columns while the UP and DOWN ARROW keys move between rows. If
you press RIGHT ARROW to move from the last column in the current row
to the first column of

the next row, an ascending sound is heard. If you press LEFT ARROW to
move from the first column in the current row to the last column in
the prior row, a descending sound is heard. JAWS also announces the
number of the row that was moved to.

When focused in a cell and it contains any controls, such as a
heading, or an edit field, pressing the Say Character, Say Word, or
Say Line commands twice quickly will switch to control navigation, and
performing these commands again twice quickly will switch to character and
word navigation.
If the cell does not contain controls, you can only switch to
character and word navigation. Moving focus away from the current
table cell using LEFT or RIGHT ARROW will switch back to the prior
navigation level, for example, pressing RIGHT ARROW while in character
and word navigation will return to Smart Navigation in tables as soon
as you move to a different cell. When you are in control navigation,
or character and word navigation, pressing UP or DOWN ARROW will move
to and read the entire row. Pressing UP or DOWN ARROW from the
beginning or end of the table will also resume Smart Navigation by
Controls and Tables.

For an example of using Smart Navigation in tables, visit the Tables
with JAWS and MAGic page on the Surf's Up pages.

When set to Controls and focus is not in a table, navigation is the
same as the Controls and Tables option. The only difference is that if
you encounter a table, you will need to use the standard table reading
commands (CTRL+ALT+ARROW keys) or the Table layer (INSERT+SPACEBAR, t)
to navigate the table.


When Smart navigation is active, press ALT+DELETE or INSERT+TAB to
have JAWS

announce the current Smart Navigation level.

New Sound Indication for Links

As you navigate by line with Smart Navigation active, JAWS plays a
sound if the current line contains one or more links which would
generally be displayed on separate lines when you are not in Smart
Navigation. This sound helps you

identify that a link exists and gives you a chance to pause to hear
about it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it. To keep this
sound from being

too intrusive, it is not heard if a line contains a link that is
preceeded by less than five characters. For instance, a bulleted or
numbered list that

contains a link directly after the number or bullet.

Use Settings Center to Configure Settings for a Specific Web Site

In JAWS 17, you can now apply settings changes to a specific web site
domain

using Settings Center. For instance, if you use Smart Navigation and
you have a particular web site where you would prefer not to have this
feature active, you can open Settings Center from the current site and
turn it off.
Smart
Navigation will continue working on all other web sites.

To configure web site specific settings, do the following:

list of 6 items
1. Open the web site where you want settings changes to apply.
2. Press INSERT+F2, select Settings Center, and press ENTER.
3. Press CTRL+SHIFT+W to open the settings file associated with the
currently active web site. Alternatively, press SHIFT+TAB to move to
the application list, press CTRL+HOME to move to the top of the list,
and then press DOWN ARROW one time to move to the settings file for the
current site.
For example, if you open Settings Center from the Freedom Scientific
web site, you should

see something like www.freedomscientific.com (Domain).
4. From the Search edit box, type all or part of the setting you want
to change. For example, "smart" for Smart Navigation, "Forms" for
Forms Mode options, etc.
5. Press DOWN ARROW to move to the filtered results of the Settings
Center tree view and make your preferred settings changes.
6. Press TAB to move to the OK button and activate it with the
SPACEBAR. The

changes are made and saved. Settings Center closes.
list end

Now, whatever you have set for the current web site should only be
applied when any pages on this site are open and have focus. For
example, if you set Smart Navigation to Controls and Tables for the
Freedom Scientific web site,

it should be off for all other web sites which is the default, unless
you are on Freedomscientific.com.

New Options Added to Startup Wizard

The Startup Wizard contains a series of pages that allow users to
quickly configure some of the more commonly used JAWS options
including speech settings, startup options, keyboard settings,
verbosity options, and braille settings.

The Startup Wizard automatically launches after a full install of
JAWS, but can be accessed any time through the JAWS Help menu. In JAWS
17, we have added a few more options we expect users will want convenient
access to.

list of 2 items
. The page which follows the Run JAWS Settings page is now called
Common Options. It contains new controls to configure Smart Navigation
and Forms Mode.
. A new Braille Translation Settings page has been added directly
after the Verbosity Settings page and before the Braille Settings
page. It contains the following new options:

list of 3 items nesting level 1
. Language: Use this combo box to specify the Braille language. For
example,

English, Spanish, French, German, and so on.
. Output: Use this combo box to configure the output mode for reading
Braille on your display. The first option is always Computer Braille.
The other available options depend on the currently selected language.
For example, when the language is set to English United States, the
available output modes are U.S.
English Grade 1, U.S. English Grade 2, Unified English Braille Grade
1, and Unified English Braille Grade 2. If you set the language to
French, the available modes are French Grade 1 and French Grade 2.
. Input Use this combo box to specify the input mode used when typing
Braille from the Perkins-style keyboard on your display. The first
option is

always
Computer Braille. The other available option depends on the currently
selected output mode. For instance, if you have chosen to display
Unified English Braille Grade 2, then you can choose to type in either
Computer Braille or Unified English Braille Grade 2. This setting is
not available if the selected output mode is Computer Braille, or the
selected output mode does not support input.
list end nesting level 1
list end

Create domain specific scripts for Web Pages and Web Applications

JAWS has always provided the ability to script desktop applications,
enabling many non-standard applications to be made accessible to JAWS
users.

In recent
years, however, more and more applications are being developed to run
inside

web browsers. For example, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Docs are
web applications that allow you to create, edit, and save documents,
as well as collaborate with other users, directly through web pages
opened in Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Since each web application can offer its own unique functionality, the
JAWS scripts for the web browser are too general to be of use for specific
pages.
JAWS 17 extends the scripting functionality to enable you to create
scripts that only load when a particular web site is being accessed,
so you can customize a web page or application to your specific needs.
For instance, if you created scripts for www.microsoft.com, these
scripts would be loaded for any

page
opened on the Microsoft web site. Domain specific scripts are loaded
on top of the browser scripts so that JAWS can fall back to the
general scripts in situations where a domain specific script behavior
is not available. This gives scripters much more control when
scripting a web-based application for a client at a job site as they
can create specific functionality for the application without affecting
how JAWS performs on other web pages.

To aid in creating domain specific scripts, three new script functions
have been added.

list of 3 items
. GetDocumentXML: This function obtains well-formed XML from the Dom
Server for parsing using the MSXML com object.
. PerformActionOnElementWithTagAndAttribute: This function finds an
element in the DOM by tag and attribute/value pair and performs an
action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible, doDefaultAction, leftClick, or
rightClick.
. PerformActionOnElementWithID: This function finds an element in the
DOM by

unique ID and performs an action on it such as setFocus, makeVisible,
doDefaultAction, leftClick or rightClick.
list end

Using these functions, you could write scripts to do things like find
and speak a particular heading, add the numbers in the last row of a
table and speak the total, and much more, all without moving the Virtual
Cursor.

To demonstrate domain-specific scripting, we have included sample
SharePoint

scripts that allow you to access web-based toolbars on a SharePoint
domain using the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke. To enable these sample
scripts, do the
following:

list of 2 items
1. Create a confignames.ini file in your JAWS user settings folder
located at C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\17.0\Settings\enu.
2. Add the following lines.
[Domains]
fsservices-my.sharepoint.com=SharePointWeb
list end

If the scripts are not working, meaning that toolbars cannot be
activated with the INSERT+CTRL+F8 keystroke, check the address of the
current domain.
If
necessary, add another line to your confignames.ini to enable that
domain to

be recognized so that the sharePoint sample scripts load.

Liblouis Braille Translator now included for English

JAWS 17 has switched to the popular and widely accepted open-source
Liblouis

braille translator. This new translation now offers both contracted
and uncontracted Unified English Braille (UEB) and the more
traditional Contracted English Braille (CEB) when reading and writing.
Starting in 2016, UEB will become the standard in the United States.
Switching now to Liblouis will ensure JAWS offers the latest standards for
UEB translation.

New in JAWS Touch Screen Support

Since JAWS 15, users have had the ability to interact with the touch
screens

found on various devices like the Dell Venue series of Windows tablets.
Using
one and multi-finger gestures such as taps, flicks, and swipes, users
navigate to and activate controls, read text, and perform other common
JAWS functions.
In JAWS 17, we have continued to enhance touch screen support by
providing access to the Windows touch keyboard as well as adding the
ability to edit and select text in documents, messages, or web pages
right from the touch screen.

Support for the Windows Touch Keyboard

JAWS 17 offers full support for the Windows touch keyboard, enabling
you to

write documents, email messages, and fill out forms on the Internet right
on your device's touch screen if you do not have access to
a

physical keyboard. While a regular keyboard is still recommended for
writing
lengthy documents or performing complex editing tasks,
using

the Touch keyboard is convenient for writing a quick note, composing
or replying to an email, or filling out a form on a web site.

To activate the Touch Keyboard, double tap the Start Touch Keyboard
button on the Desktop, or perform the new JAWS gesture, four-finger
swipe down then up. JAWS announces "opened Touch Keyboard" and plays an
ascending sound.
Once enabled, the keyboard is positioned in the bottom
part
of
the screen and each key is represented by a button. Use flick gestures to
move to each key, or drag your finger around the screen to
explore
and locate keys. While exploring, JAWS plays a unique set of sounds to
alert

you when you enter or leave the area of the screen
containing
the touch keyboard. Once you become familiar with the touch keyboard
layout,

you can tap at the location of each key. To close the touch keyboard,
perform another four-finger swipe down then up. JAWS announces "closed
touch keyboard" and plays a descending sound.

JAWS offers two different modes for typing characters:

list of 2 items
. Standard Typing: A key is typed when a double tap or split tap is
performed on the screen after exploring to any of the keyboard
buttons. If alternative
characters are available for the current keyboard
button, a triple tap will open a panel of alternative keys related to
the selected
key. Performing a triple tap on any keyboard button in
the alternative characters panel will close the panel. Standard Typing
is the default mode.
. Touch Typing: A key is typed when the finger is lifted from any of
the keyboard buttons, or a split tap is performed on the selected
keyboard button.
If alternative characters are available for the
current keyboard button, a split double tap will open a panel of
alternative keys related
to the selected key. Performing a split double tap on
any keyboard button in the alternative characters panel will close the
panel.

list end

Use the new Touch Keyboard settings group located in the main Keyboard
group

in Settings center to change the typing mode as well as choose whether
JAWS announces characters, words, both characters and words, or is
silent as you type using the touch keyboard. You can also change how
you are notified when the touch keyboard or the panel of alternate
characters opens and closes.

Note: Changing the feedback for the touch keyboard is separate from
the feedback for the physical keyboard. This means you can have JAWS
say nothing

when
using a regular keyboard, but continue to announce both characters and
words

when using the touch keyboard.

Text Selection and Other Improvements in Text Reading Mode

Text reading is one of the three gesture modes that can be activated
by rotating two fingers on the screen. JAWS 17 will now also
automatically switch to Text Reading if you double tap on an element that
supports cursor
navigation such as an article in the News app, or the text
area of
an editing application like Microsoft Word. When Text Reading is
activated using a double tap on a text element, for instance, the
second paragraph of a document, JAWS attempts to position the cursor
at the location of the double tap.

When Text Reading is active, flicking left or right moves by
character, flicking left or right with two fingers moves by word,
flicking up or down moves by line, flicking up or down with two
fingers moves by paragraph, flicking left or right with three fingers
moves to the beginning or end of a line, and flicking up or down with
three fingers moves to the top or bottom of the text area. In
addition, you can now flick up or down with four fingers to move by
page, similar to using PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN. These gestures also move
the cursor, enabling you to navigate to the location in a document
where you want to insert text or begin selecting text. For example,
you could flick up

with two fingers to move to the prior paragraph, flick left or right
to position the focus on a blank line, and then begin typing to insert
text at that location.

Performing a triple tap on the screen with one finger will now toggle
text selection on or off. When enabled, using any of the above text
reading gestures will select the specific unit as well as move to it.
For example, to move to

and select the next line, perform a triple tap and then flick down.
Text will continue to be selected as you navigate until you perform a
triple tap again

to turn it off. To read currently selected text, you can now perform a
two-finger triple tap.

Other Touch Screen Improvements

Dragging a finger around the screen to explore and hear each element
now works in Text Reading mode in addition to Touch Navigation mode.
If Text Reading is currently active and you explore to an item that
does not support this mode, JAWS will automatically switch back to
Touch Navigation. As you explore, you can now have JAWS announce the
character or word at the current location

by performing a split tap or split double tap.

If you encounter an element that does not support standard cursor
navigation, such as a button, or an item in a list, performing a
three-finger swipe down then up now opens a Virtual Viewer window
containing the name of the element. You can then use the navigation
gestures described above to review this information.
This is useful if you want to review a control in greater detail that
you did not quite understand when it was announced by JAWS during
exploration or when tapping it. When this mode is active, you will not
be able to navigate to other items on the screen. If you explore
outside of the Virtual Viewer, JAWS plays a sound to indicate you are
no longer in the window. Performing the three-finger swipe down then
up gesture again will close the Virtual Viewer.

Tablet Orientation Notification

JAWS now indicates in both speech and braille when the screen
orientation changes between portrait and landscape. When changing to
landscape, JAWS says "landscape, with home button to the left" or
"landscape, with home button to

the right", depending on the position of the tablet. When changing to
portrait, JAWS says "portrait" or "portrait flipped."

Explore Scripts

A new Explore Scripts shortcut has been added to the Utilities folder
in Windows 8 and later and the Explore JAWS submenu located under the
JAWS program group in Windows 7 and earlier. Selecting this shortcut
opens the folder where the shared script files are stored.

Script Compatibility Mode

By default, scripts compiled using the Script Manager or the
scompile.exe command line tool in JAWS 17 will not work with prior
versions of JAWS. This is due to changes in JAWS 17 to improve the
localization process. In order to compile scripts that will work in
JAWS 17 as well as prior versions, select the new Compatibility Mode
option from the File Menu in Script Manager, or use the -c command line
option if using scompile.exe.

Note: If you compile scripts with the compatibility option, and your
scripts

use messages defined in JSM files that ship with JAWS 17, those
messages will always be in English regardless of the language of the
JAWS version that is running.

Sports Scores Lookup Sources Temporarily Removed from Research It

Until we can get cooperation from ESPN to allow access to their sports
results using the Research It feature, the MLB, NFL, NBA, and NCAA
Scores lookup sources have been removed. We hope to add them back in
the future once a solution is reached.

Merge Utility No Longer Available

Major changes have been made to improve the JAWS localization process.
This included reorganizing many of the JAWS settings files. Due to
these changes, the Merge utility is no longer installed with JAWS 17
as settings from prior

versions cannot be merged. We are planning a solution for the future
which will replace this utility and provide an even greater benefit
for our customers.

Take care.

Hello,

I just switched from WORD 2003 to 2013. The menu bar has been changed

a ribbon menu for some years now. These ribbons are proving to be an
initial hurdle. I'm tabbing and arrowing in a fruitless search for what
I
want.

When the ribbons first came out, Ihad heard that you could use some of
the old Menu Bar hot keys, but that isn't exactly true.

Alt+F doesn't bring up the old File menu.

Some of you provided the hot keys for changing the font.

How do I do a "save as"? That was in the File menu.
If I do a "alt+f a" I get a save as tab. There is no edit field.

How do I open a file? The ctrl+o gives me the open tab and recently
opened documents.
There is no edit field to type in the drive, path file-name that I used
to do.

I got started by using the tree to select an existing WORD document It
was opened by WORD. I could then open it as a recent document.


I just found the JAWS training, as DAISY books. These can be downloaded
so I downloaded the VirtualRibbonMenus.exe. It is an executable file.
How do I get it into a DAISY book format to transfer to my DAISY
player?

Thanks for any help.
Peter T.

Re: Just switched to WORD 2013, any more hot keys suggestions?

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Definitely goinjg to Documents will get me there. The thing I can't
figure out to do, now that someone on the list mentioned it is be in Word
and hit Control O for Open and then get to my Documents Directory. I even
got to a place that said All Text Files or something like that, but I
could not open that.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

While you are in the open dialog, tab once to 'type' and put in txt.
Open only works for the types in that box. I always go to documents and
press enter on the one I want.

Also. If you are using windows 7 or later, you can type the document
name in the search field that you get when you press the windows key, and
bypass 'open' altogether.

Good luck!

Thanks Ann,

I'm making headwaywith WORD 2013.

Your suggestion to get to save-as by using the old:
alt+F then a
only gets me to the save-as tab. Inow know that I have to select a
button for the folder and that brings up the edit box.

The F12 gets me directly into the edit box where I can type
thepath/fileName.

I still don't know how to open a file from inside WORD. The ctrl+o gets
me the open tab. Only recent documents are shown.

I need an edit box to type the path/file so I can open a text file from
within WORD.
Existing WORD files can be opened by selecting them from the directory
tree.

The large WORD hot keys file is a problem, maybe the "protected view".

I used F12 to save it as a RTF and text file. It will take time to go
through it.

Thanks again.

If you remember the commands from Word 2003, you can use most of them.
But you can't open a menu and select one. So to get to the format
paragraph dialog, you have to type alt-o, then p. To get to 'change
case', it's alt-o, then e. Save-as is alt-f, then a, or f12.

Good luck! the transition is a stinker, but eventually it's
manageable.

You can change the font by pressing Alt-O-F or Shift Control-F or,
best of all, Control D, which always has been delete - go figure. I
learned the second and third commands from listers. I too jumped from
2003 to 2013. Actually, I had a brief stint with 2010, which is about
the same as 2013.

Bye for now,
