Jaws uninstall is an all-or-nothing thing on a per-version basis. That
is, you can remove jaws 2021 but leave jaws 2020 (or vise versa) but
not remove the latest jaws 2021 update and go back to the prior
version.

I suspect to go back to a prior version you would need to uninstall
jaws and then use the installer for that prior version and then when
jaws runs say "No" if it asks if you wish to install the latest
update.

I would suggest that before you go to the work of uninstalling that
you re-run the jaws installer (possibly downloading the latest
installer exe from the web if you don't have it handy) and use it to
perform a repair.

type, focus, in the search field.
When the results populate you should have 1 result, Focus loss announcement,

make sure this is unchecked.

You can run the .exe file that you used to install Jaws 2021 and you will

For me, the first item under Utilities is the voice assistant.

What I find interesting about this is that I turned it off, yet, it still shows up under utilities with all of the features grayed out other than settings and getting started.

But, I do have a microphone on this laptop, so maybe that is the issue?

do you have a microphone on your computer or laptop or one that you can plug-in? If you don't have a microphone maybe it doesn't show up. This is just guessing though. As for removing an update you can't do that the download you have to get from freedom scientific is already updated. If you have an old EXC you can use that and not update but short of that no you can't remove an update.

Be sure you have pressed alt-ctrl-z to turn on accessibility. In
accessibility settings, turn on Braille even if you don't have a
Braille display. At 10:22 PM 2/3/2021, you wrote:
Dear Listers:

I am trying to read a document from my church that was sent in
Googledocs, but I am finding that when I read it I can only do so
line-by-line, meaning I have to press the Down Arrow key after every
line. The JAWS Say All command will not work. Is there a way using
JAWS that I can read something in Googledocs straight through, as if
I were using the Say All command in other documents?

This one works.  Backspace doesn't (even though it does for some other browsers).

Does anyone know the Brave browser shortcut for going back to the previous page? The list of shortcuts I have for Brave says it is control, left bracket but that doesn’t work.  Tom

Dear Anne:

The advice and the help you have been giving me have been very helpful. I have done all the things you said, and I have even made sure to save the spreadsheet to my Google drive, but it still isn't working, even if I have the virtual cursor turned on. It is hard reading this document line by line. Can I copy it all and then save it in another format, such as Microsoft Word?

Be sure to turn off the virtual cursor with
insert-z. if that doesn't help, turn it back on
again. sometimes it makes a difference and sometimes it doesn't.

There is a whole list of Google docs shortcuts.

this is copied from a tcsaccess.com webinar transcript:
turn on accessibility

* Navigate to Tools menu with Alt + T

* Press Up or Down Arrow to navigate to Accessibility Settings

* Press Tab to Screen Reader Support

* Press Space to check the box

* Press Tab to the OK button

* Press Space to confirm the OK button


>> List with two items. Turn on screen reader support check box not checked.

>> Ben: In this case I would want the screen
reader support turned on. So I'm pressing the
space bar. And as I continue to tab

>> Learn more about the list with two
items. Turn on Braille support. Check box.

>> Ben: Turn on supportive you're using a
Braille display. Just kind of a heads up, even
though you might get access to certain keystrokes
such as say line or being able to announce the
current font attributes, you might lose some
access to other keystrokes such as being able to
quickly identify a graphic and potentially select
that graphic regardless of which screen reader
you're using. The just kind of a heads up of the
trade off as you tooling to turn on Braille support on and off.

After you turn on Accessability, how do you go
about accessing Accessability Settings?
