Re: GoogleChrome crashing with JAWS

David Goldfield
 

David,

Since you have verified that these crashes don't occur when JAWS is not running I would report this to Freedom Scientific by sending a detailed report to

support@...


In the meantime have you considered using the June build of JAWS 2020 temporarily until FS can isolate the problem?

Alternatively, have you considered using the touch cursor instead of the JAWS cursor to perform the functions that you need? Out of curiosity why is the JAWS cursor needed in this particular application? What functions does it serve that the virtual cursor doesn't offer?

Hello,

 

For work, I use a financial package, called Munis, that runs with Google Chrome.  Up until last Thursday, 8/27/2020, everything was working ok.  I am using JAWS version 2020.2008.24 and Windows 10 Professional 1909.

 

Now, when I go into any of the modules and press the JAWS cursor key (numpad minus), Google Chrome crashes.  After a couple minutes, or after pressing the esc key, I get the message that Google Chrome is not responding.  I have deleted the cache and  deleted and reinstalled Chrome with no difference.  I had a sight assistance try to run the modules without JAWS running and it ran fine.  Loading JAWS after the modules were open, results in the same crash.  I tried using MS Edge Chromium and it worked for about a day then it also started to crash att he same point as Chrome.  Unfortunately, JAWS is the only screen reader that will work with these modules.  I have tried NVDA and Narrator, but they don’t give any speech output with these screens.

 

I am also reaching out to the software vendor to see if they have any ideas.

 

Thanks,

Re: Capslock key stuck when turning the keyboard to laptop layout

David Griffith
 

If this is really a problem which occurs only with Jaws and  not other screenreader then we can presumably eliminate the possibility of you turning on sticky keys by mistake.
I would first of all try  a   Jaws repair by going to add Remove programs and then hitting the uninstall options which include from memory  an option to repair.
Alternatively run the Jaws installation file again. If the problem persists even after a repair I think you need to run Jaws in default mode.
There is a command for this which somebody else may have to help with as I am on my Mac as my Windows machine has gone off for repair but it is something like go to the run menu with windows R andusing Narrator  type Jaws /default 
As I say somebody else may have to correct my syntax. If the problem persists even with Jaws in default mode I think it is  a call to FS Support..

Finally to eliminate it as a hardware issue plug in an alternative keyboard to see if the problem persist. If the problem disappears it is a problem with your Windows hardware/OS configuration.

I would review the google version history. See if you can revert back to an older version to see if that addresses the issue.

Re: Using excel with Jaws question

Shan Noyes
 

Excellent!!!!

 

I just tried it and it is great…  I work in computer security and end up trolling through server logs etc and when looking at transactions and wanting to jump to the next IP address and their transactions I was using the old down arrow approach and it drove me insane.

 

This little trick is exactly what I was looking for when I sent my email this morning.

 

Just to let you all know the control spacebar for selecting the column also works with the control shift backslash item.

 

Thanks again and have a good evening.

Just about done for the day here.

Ok, hold down the control and shift. Do not let go of theese 2 keys. Now while holding down these keys, hit down arrow, do not hold down the down arrow, just press it. wait a second, then hit the backspace key. The backspace key is normally above the enter key.

If you remember what that sell value was, after you sort it, could you then do a find with control F and type in that value? Or copy that sells value to your clipboard and then do your control F and paste the amount in the find field.

Re: Using excel with Jaws question

Chris Chaffin
 


Not sure why.

As a test, I took a blank worksheefft, put the same number in about 5 cells down, put a different number in the next 5 cells, and so on for about 20 or 30 cells.
I did not change any of the cell formats or anything.

Now you do have to be in your list of numbers.
But it worked for me multiple times.

I even made a new list with only 2 of each number to see if that made a difference, and it still worked.

I am running Excel 2016.

I wonder if it has to do with the type of cell the column is set for, i.e., data or text, etc.

If you remember what that sell value was, after you sort it, could you then do a find with control F and type in that value? Or copy that sells value to your clipboard and then do your control F and paste the amount in the find field.

I have the keystroke that you are needing.

 

Ok, hold down the control and shift. Do not let go of theese 2 keys. Now while holding down these keys, hit down arrow, do not hold down the down arrow, just press it. wait a second, then hit the backspace key. The backspace key is normally above the enter key.

 

Each time you press the backspace key, it will jump to the next different value in the column.

 

I have tested this and it does work.

I see what you’re trying to do. I don’t know of a command that will get you to the next value, but I wonder if there is something with filtering that will tell you the next number or value. Then doing a search for that or filtering to the next value.

 

I will let you know if anything else comes to mind.

Re: Using excel with Jaws question

Chris Chaffin
 


Sorry, but still trying to figure out exactly what you are asking to do in Excel.

If you have one or multiple rows that you are switching between, then you could look into using Monitor cells. You can designate up to 10 cells as monitor cells. After designating a cell as a monitor cell, you then can have Jaws say what is in that cell no matter where you are on the worksheet, and you can also choose to move to one or multiple monitor cells if you want. All Jaws keystrokes dealing with monitor cells can be accessed by pressing Jaws key + the letter H.

If you are wanting to just return to the previous cell that you were at, there is not a particular keystroke for this. You can use f5 or control + G to bring up the Go to dialog box. You can then type in the cell you want to move to, or tab once for a list of prior cells to move to.

Hopefully this was of some help.

Jaws erratic behavior while composing E mail messages

T. Civitello
 

While composing E mail messages in Windows Live Mail Jaws will not back space or delete and the only way I have found to cure this is to unload Jaws and restart it.  Using the latest version of Jaws and the latest version of WLM the one with the ribbon menus. This doesn’t happen all the time but often enough to be irritating. It is not happening on this particular message.  Tom

Dr. James Dobson told this true story about a missionary in the jungle. One day the missionary entered his hut, and a gigantic snake, one of those that can swallow a whole pig, was inside. He went out to his truck and got his revolver. He only had one shell. He went in and carefully aimed at the head of that monstrous snake and pulled the trigger. The snake was mortally wounded, but he didn???t die right away. He began to writhe and thrash around, his tail going this way and that! He literally tore up everything in that hut as he was dying.
