Hi Nermin,

No, fast start is not enabled. Regardless of any problems, i always like to
start windows cold anyway. I would have disabled this anyway.

Hi Andrew,

There is no jaws window when jaws 2020 starts up. I have to exit it and
start it again in order to gain access to anything.
I tried your suggestion some time ago. The remove authorization option will
not remove the ilm key.

Hi Pat,
If you go to the JAWS window, and then press the menu bar and go to the
Utilities menu, you will find in there Explore Utilities Folder.
Press enter on that.
In there is an option to Remove JAWS Activation, press enter.

Hi Dave,

Yes, i am on the last version of jaws 2018 which is all i am entitled to.
I did use the jaws import wizard to copy my shared settings.
I have a 90 day ilm key just to try out jaws 2020.
Jaws2020 and jaws2018 are now both authorized using the same 90 day key for
some reason.
With regards to settings etc, i uninstalled both, reinstalled both, removed
both again with all settings and shared components, reinstalled jaws2020,
but still the problem exists.
One peculiar thing though, i started up my computer yesterday from a
shutdown, and everything with jaws2020 worked fine.
I did the exact same thing just now, and the problem came back.
I am convinced at this stage, that it does have something to do with the new
"grace period" authorization function introduced in jaws 2019.
I think it is loading before it knows for certain whether or not you have a
valid key. Sometimes the check works, and sometimes it doesn't and jaws half
loads with no actual jaws window.
I also think, that it might have something to do with the ilm key, as this
is a very old type of authorization for a pc, as against the internet
activation method. However, i am not paying for an upgrade until i can get a
definite sort-out for this problem. As i said in another post, there is
always nvda, but i would rather stay with jaws.

Regards,

Pat

Hello Pat:

Question 1: With JAWS 18, are you on the last upgrade for your current SMA?
Which is why you are using the temporary license for JAWS 2020, so you can
try its new and upgraded features?

Question 2: did you use the JAWS function, which copies the settings you set

in JAWS 18 to JAWS 2020?

moderated Re: Links, Feature To Read Links Across Verses In a List

Sean Murphy
 

Let me go into more depth.

Tabindex is the attribute which effects tab order. If this is set to 0, then
the way in which the page is loaded into the browser is the tab order. If a
positive value is used which is a WCAG 2.1 failure. Then the focus order
will change. If a button is activated and this shows new content. Depending
on how the developer has developed the page. The content could appear at the
bottom of the virtual buffer (been inserted at the end of the dom) or
inserted after the button. So the next item Jaws sees is the new content
which is correct behaviour. The page should never use a positive value to
achieve tab order as it breaks things very quickly.

The difference between simple and document mode for Jaws is if the link and
other elements are presented on their own lines or not. The default document
view you will have links and other elements on different lines when using
the down arrow. In document view, the link will be a part of the paragraph
text. The tab order is still the same.

A lot of web sites use a tabindex -1 to change the tab order of items
depending on what you have done on the page.

I don't think any of these settings effect tab order, Jaws gives this to the
browser no matter what -- they only effect navigating by arrow keys. Jaws

document object model has been built. The Document Object model is the way
in which the browser stores all the information you are reviewing. There is
the styling piece that comes into as well which is called the CSS. Not sure
if this would effect the tab order.



If you have to links on the same line, they should navigate from left to
right. Starting with the first link. This is of course assuming there is
nothing changing the tab order.



The document view will show you ho the page is structured on the page. For
example. If you have a line of text with a link in it. Jaws will read the
whole line and announces the link as part of it. In simple layout, the first
part of the line is spoken, then the link, then the remaining part of the
line.



I hope the above helps.

Hi Judy & Bill,



From what I've been told after learning more about Jaws is that when you,
Tab, you are going vertical on the page. This surprised me since I had been
pictureing tabbing as going horizontally across a page, like with the old
school typewriters. This comes from being pretty much self taught and
having a lot of questions like this and not having any real teaching about
computers or Jaws until I found the Jaws-Users group.



So, now let me ask, is the Documents Presentation feature supposed to
change the default Jaws navigation from vertical to horizontal when tabbing?
I don't have any sight at all so I can't tell.


Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi. Able to login into the cisco forums. But when I try to post, a topic, they have a stupid select a board link, then a mouse over tree view / combo box. So how to then select that with jaws, or nvda. Not able to post, keeps telling me to select a board to continue.

Any one come across this one and how to fix.

Not able to post a topic. Have tried jaws, nvda, windows narrator, tried chrome, edge, ie, firefox and the same or similar issues when I login. Have notified cisco, and the forums, see if they will fix this issue if not, how to get them to make this more accessible. One of the more serious or poor combo box issues with a form or a forum.

I don't think any of these settings effect tab order, Jaws gives this
to the browser no matter what -- they only effect navigating by arrow
keys. Jaws does not interfere with what the browser does with tab.

Patrick Murphy
 

Hi Dave,

Yes, i am on the last version of jaws 2018 which is all i am entitled to.
I did use the jaws import wizard to copy my shared settings.
I have a 90 day ilm key just to try out jaws 2020.
Jaws2020 and jaws2018 are now both authorized using the same 90 day key for
some reason.
With regards to settings etc, i uninstalled both, reinstalled both, removed
both again with all settings and shared components, reinstalled jaws2020,
but still the problem exists.
One peculiar thing though, i started up my computer yesterday from a
shutdown, and everything with jaws2020 worked fine.
I did the exact same thing just now, and the problem came back.
I am convinced at this stage, that it does have something to do with the new
"grace period" authorization function introduced in jaws 2019.
I think it is loading before it knows for certain whether or not you have a
valid key. Sometimes the check works, and sometimes it doesn't and jaws half
loads with no actual jaws window.
I also think, that it might have something to do with the ilm key, as this
is a very old type of authorization for a pc, as against the internet
activation method. However, i am not paying for an upgrade until i can get a
definite sort-out for this problem. As i said in another post, there is
always nvda, but i would rather stay with jaws.

Regards,

Pat

Which is why you are using the temporary license for JAWS 2020, so you can

Question 2: did you use the JAWS function, which copies the settings you set

That could explain why 2018 works and 2020 doesn't. If it checks while

might that be the JAWS feature touted as new in either 2019 or 2020,
saying
that JAWS will speak before checking your authorization, so you don't
have to wait so long to hear that it is running. However, it doesn't
do
anything
till it makes internal checks and decides what context you are running
in.
So in my opinion it is a totally useless change which FS calls an

All,

 

If you are talking about moving between elements. It depends on how the document object model has been built. The Document Object model is the way in which the browser stores all the information you are reviewing. There is the styling piece that comes into as well which is called the CSS. Not sure if this would effect the tab order.

 

If you have to links on the same line, they should navigate from left to right. Starting with the first link. This is of course assuming there is nothing changing the tab order.

 

The document view will show you ho the page is structured on the page. For example. If you have a line of text with a link in it. Jaws will read the whole line and announces the link as part of it. In simple layout, the first part of the line is spoken, then the link, then the remaining part of the line.

Jim,

 

 

In HTML there is a tag to indicate when text has been deleted or inserted, to inform the person of the editorial changes. This is what you are hearing. The latest release of Jaws have set the verbosity to medium. I would suggest checking this to see if you can modify it. It is found under the settings centre > html > reading

John,

Drawing your signature is just one option, you can also select from some preexisting styles in which case you just type your name and it makes it into a signature.

I was never able to use docusign unassisted, it wanted me to draw the signature and in my case it did not have a screen reader mode anywhere I saw.

I use Docusign with Brave and Google Chrome and both work well with it.

Hello there,
We are looking at using Docusign. Does anyone have any experience to know if this is accessible with screen reader software? Thank you!

The Vispero toll free number is +1 800-444-4443
I am not entirely sure if you can access their tech support department from that number or if you have to call their regular number which is +1 727-803-8600
I know you can call North American toll free numbers for free with Skype, if you have to call the local number for tech support you would have to have a bit of Skype credit to do so, shouldn't cost very much and if you have an Office 365 subscription you may already have 60 minutes of Skype calling included.

Best regards,

Patrick, are you in the UK? What number do you call? I can see how an email could take several days to receive a reply, but if you call their regular US number (if you are in the UK an duse Skype you can even call their toll free
number) you should get somebody on the line right away.
The regular number is +1 727-803-8600.

Vispero is not closed due to COVID-19. Everyone is working as usual. If you need technical, customer, or sales support call vispero as usual. Vispero has not ever closed due to the virus. They are continuing to support their customers as usual.

Hi, Patrick. Even if JAWS starts before Windows starts, eventually you should get to the desktop, as JAWS is made to start before many programs, and after they load, JAWS still provides voicing, screen content and navigation. If you wish, since Vispero is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, you may give me a call at,

714-835-6295,
and I will stay on the phone with you to see what is happening.

I hope I may be able to help you.

Hi,

Yes, latest version of windows 10 home edition with all necessary and optional updates installed.
Checked yesterday, and there is no further updates needed.
Downloaded the latest version of jaws from freedom scientific and used it.
All apps in startup are turned off, apart from the necessary ones such as the audio drivers etc that are actually necessary.
There is an application file for jaws set to "on". I set this to "off" just in case, but no difference.

However, i did notice one peculiar thing.
When i set either of them to "always start for this user", the option
changes for both versions. I cannot set 2018 to "never" and 2020 to
"always". No matter where i change it (20158 or 2020), it defaults to
the same thing in both versions. The only independant thing is "start

The problem may be as I had. Both versions, 18 and 20 are fighting to
load at same time. Go into whatever version you do not want to load
and correct this and be sure the version you want to load is properly
set. Then I do believe this will be better...

Hi,

I wasn't aware of this feature, but you could be right. Now that i
think
of
it, it started right after i installed the temporary authorization (90
days)
that i was given to try it out.
That could explain why 2018 works and 2020 doesn't. If it checks while
windows is loading, it could be a problem. When i stop and restart it,
it
is
fine, but then windows is fully up at that time.
Any way to disable/check/change this or something?

might that be the JAWS feature touted as new in either 2019 or 2020,
saying
that JAWS will speak before checking your authorization, so you don't
have to wait so long to hear that it is running. However, it doesn't
do
anything
till it makes internal checks and decides what context you are running in.
So in my opinion it is a totally useless change which FS calls an
improvement.

Regardless of what I do with jaws2020 (login screen etc), the first
time it starts up, there is no window to go to.
Insert+j brings you nowhere whether it is running from system tray or
not.
If you shut it down (insert+f4) and then restart it, everything is ok.
If you don't start it at the login screen, it still produces no window.

It sounds like J2020 is set to start on the log-in screen. If you're
saying that there's no Jaws window when you, Alt + tab, you probably
have J2020 running from the system tray. To find the settings for
both these items press, Insert + J, to open the Jaws context menu,
press the letter, O, to open, Options, and press the letter, B, to
open,
Basic.
Now tab to Automatically start Jaws...
button and press the spacebar to find your Jaws start settings and
tab to Okay and press the spacebar when you're through in here. Now
tab 3 times or so to, Run Jaws from system tray, and uncheck this if
you want the Jaws window to be in the, Alt + Tab, order, then tab to
Okay and press enter to save / close.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi,

I am new to this group, so i hope i am doing this right.
I have jaws2018 and 2020. 2018 works fine, but when 2020 starts,
there is no jaws window.
It seems to be starting before windows 10 has loaded.
I uninstalled and reinstalled it, but there was no change.

Any ideas?

Hi Judy & Bill,
 
From what I've been told after learning more about Jaws is that when you, Tab, you are going vertical on the page.  This surprised me since I had been pictureing tabbing as going horizontally across a page, like with the old school typewriters.  This comes from being pretty much self taught and having a lot of questions like this and not having any real teaching about computers or Jaws until I found the Jaws-Users group.
 
So, now let me ask, is the Documents Presentation feature supposed to change the default Jaws navigation from vertical to horizontal when tabbing?  I don't have any sight at all so I can't tell.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi all, there is a setting in JAWS that allows a person to read links on a web page left to right as they are viewed by a sighted person, instead of the normal up and down. It has been in for a few versions of JAWS. Can anyone think of the name of that feature?

Thanks
