demo JAWS17

Some people have started running JAWS17 but found that it started in demo mode and caused JAWS16 to also run in demo mode.
Has this problem been fixed?

Hi all, I wrote last week about the scripting question I had for my
job.
Well, I am still playing with it and have another question. I figured
out a way I can get the dialer window to focus. I use the move to
window function, and it works perfectly. Only problem, every time I
have to restart the program, the control ID for that specific control
changes. Then, in order for my script to work again, I have to manually put
in the new control ID.
Is there a way to deal with that? Any ideas would be greatly
appreciated. I cannot use hotspot clicker, because they don't allow for
downloading programs off websites that are not specifically approved by
the company.
Thanks in advance for any help, and if no one can help can you please
direct me to a better place to inquire about this?

Re: Another scripting question

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

JAWS scripting itself doesn't seem to be particularly difficult to use, but
it's all the Windows API and user interface stuff -- window handles, control
IDs, etc -- that is the challenging part, and that is what has impeded my
progress from being effective at JSL. Unfortunately, they are part and
parcel, as JSL is essentially a wrapper around Win32 programming.

And that's exactly the problem you're running into.

I'd recommend the JAWS scripting mailing list. I have enumerated JSL
resources on my blog page:
https://skewmatrix.wordpress.com/

Hope that helps,

Okay, thanks. Yeah, I guess I was hallucinating. Thanks for the permanent

Too bad it's not sticky for the program, though. That seems like it would be
useful.

I have always noticed the rate change back to original rate when switching
between programs.
However, if you press the control plus windows and alt keys together with
the page up or page down keys you can quickly set your speech rate on the
fly.

Hi all. I'm using current JAWS v16. My question regards the ability to
temporarily change the speech rate with CONTROL + ALT + PageUp or PageDown.

I expected this setting to stick with the application while it was running.
In other words, if I set a slow rate in Outlook, but a fast rate in Internet
Explorer, then I should be able to switch between those two programs with
ALT + TAB and have either slow or fast speech depending on which program has
focus. If I exit the program and restart it, then I'd expect the speech rate
to be restored to the default. But while the program is running, I'd expect
the temporary speech rate setting to stay in effect, even after I switch
back to the program from somewhere else.

What I see instead: Switching away from a program then back to it with ALT +
TAB seems to cause JAWS to forget about the temporary speech rate setting
for that program. Text from the program is then read at the default speech
rate rather than my temporary setting. Note that I'm not exiting the
program. It's still running, I'm just changing focus with ALT+TAB away, then
back to the running program again. But JAWS seems to have forgotten the
temporary speech rate that I had set for that program.

If I'm not mistaken, it has been sticky for the program up until some
relatively recent JAWS update, and now I'm getting this new behavior where
JAWS forgets about the speech rate setting after switching away and back.
Has it always worked this way, and I'm somehow mistaken? Or is this a bug?

Bug with temporary speech rate change?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hi all. I'm using current JAWS v16. My question regards the ability to
temporarily change the speech rate with CONTROL + ALT + PageUp or PageDown.

I expected this setting to stick with the application while it was running.
In other words, if I set a slow rate in Outlook, but a fast rate in Internet
Explorer, then I should be able to switch between those two programs with
ALT + TAB and have either slow or fast speech depending on which program has
focus. If I exit the program and restart it, then I'd expect the speech rate
to be restored to the default. But while the program is running, I'd expect
the temporary speech rate setting to stay in effect, even after I switch
back to the program from somewhere else.

What I see instead: Switching away from a program then back to it with ALT +
TAB seems to cause JAWS to forget about the temporary speech rate setting
for that program. Text from the program is then read at the default speech
rate rather than my temporary setting. Note that I'm not exiting the
program. It's still running, I'm just changing focus with ALT+TAB away, then
back to the running program again. But JAWS seems to have forgotten the
temporary speech rate that I had set for that program.

If I'm not mistaken, it has been sticky for the program up until some
relatively recent JAWS update, and now I'm getting this new behavior where
JAWS forgets about the speech rate setting after switching away and back.
Has it always worked this way, and I'm somehow mistaken? Or is this a bug?

Greetings all,
In Windows 7 is there a compelling reason to use Outlook rather than Windows Live Mail for e-mail?
Thanks,
