 If your Jaws don't respond  to your hot key, consider activate the Run dialog box by pressing Windows+R then type  jaws and  the version number with no space. As a Jaws user, you need to know more than one way   to activate your  screen reader

Subject: Jaws command question

Hi all,
Today I was watching a Youtube video, and Jaws kept talking so I couldn't
hear the people in the video very well. So I turned Jaws using insert f4.
Well after the video was finished I tried to turn Jaws on using control alt
j, but it didn't work, my Dad had to click on Jaws. Now I know I have the
command set, so I'm not sure why it doesn't work. Any ideas? Is there any
other way I can turn Jaws on myself? If Jaws isn't working then my Braille
display doesn't work either (not sure if this is normal or not) so I don't
even know where I am. I hardly ever turn Jaws off, but I'd still like to
know why the command to turn it on doesn't work. Running Jaws 2018. Look
forward to any suggestions anyone can provide!! Thanks Madison

Madison, A lot of times when I am watching a video on YouTube and JAWS is speaking, I can just hit the Control key once and JAWS will stop speaking.  This does not turn off JAWS, it just temporarily stops speech.  If something changes or you press a key, JAWS will speak again.  I call the Control Key the JAWS shut up key.  HTH

JAWS, and I thank Jasmin for putting me out of my misery as far as that command goes, as I knew it was in the Keystrokes reference but I hadn't found the magic keywords to search for, which are "toggle speech."

Hi Alan,
 
I don't know if this will work in your situation but, it's worth a try to change this setting in Excel  Read below.
 
From: David Goldfield
JAWS Tip: Is JAWS Not Speaking As You Move Your Cursor? Try Toggling Enhanced Edit Support
In almost all applications moving the cursor or caret using your arrow keys causes JAWS (or any screen reader) to speak the character, word or line as
you use the appropriate cursor movement commands, such as right arrow for next character, control+right arrow for next word, etc. This works nearly 100%
of the time. However, I recently noticed that JAWS wasn’t speaking as I was moving the cursor in
Jarte,
 a Wordpad-like word processor that I often use. This was baffling until I found the fix. (Note: in the interest of full transparency I may have enabled
the setting that I’m about to discuss as a default. Therefore, the problem that I encountered may not actually have been a JAWS issue but may have been
something that I personally enabled.)
 
If you encounter this problem in Jarte or in any program where cursor navigation isn’t speaking try toggling enhanced edit support. Here’s how you can
locate this feature.
 
1. Press insert+F2 for the list of JAWS managers and press enter on Settings Center. As a quick shortcut pressing insert+6 will open Settings Center. This
is the 6 on the row of numbers and not on the number pad. If you are asked to create a new configuration press enter to accept.
 
2. In the search edit field type, enhanced.
 
3. Navigate with the down arrow key through the list of results and look for “enhanced edit support.” While this should be enabled for Word it should be
disabled for Jarte. Pressing the space key toggles this setting from being not checked (turned off) to being checked (enabled.)
 
4. Press enter twice, which will close Settings Center and save your changes.
David Goldfield,

Subject: Woes with Jaws and Microsoft 365

I will try to keep this brief but hope to get some helpful feedback as well as share my journey on the issue.

I decided to upgrade from Office 2016 to Microsoft 365 for a number of reasons.

I deleted Office 2016, subscribed to Microsoft 365 and downloaded the local version which I know is Office 2019. All was well and after configuring a few minor things all seemed well.

I checked a file or so with Word and Excel and again, all seemed well.

When I launched Outlook, this is where my journey began. I have used iCloud to sync my calendar, contacts and email for several years since I upgraded from Outlook 2000 to outlook 2010.

I was receiving an error message that iCloud was not able to recognize  the Outlook protocol/identity or something like that. I googled this to see what I could find and fix it. I won’t include all the steps here but tried to fix it and did not have any luck. I decided to call Microsoft disability desk and they worked on this issue for a geed hour or so to no aval. They escalated to a level 2 technician and that person called me the following day. To make a long story short, when I downloaded Microsoft 365 (Office 2019)   it was the 64 bit version. This is not a big deal as my computer runs a 64 bit version of Win 10 pro. This conflict was traced to the fact iCloud was a 32 bit program and would not play nice with the 64 bit version  of Office 2019. The tech uninstalled Office 2019 and installed the 32 bit version of Office 2019. Everything seemed to work ok while on the phone with Word, Outlook, iCloud, etc. so I told them all was ok and we hung up.

The next day I needed to update some financial records in an excel file I had setup to do this and have been doing do  with this file for well over a decade.

When I launched the file, entered my password, the fun began. Jaws announced the name of the workbook, contents of the cell it landed on and that was it. To my surprise arrowing left, right, up, down announced nothing.. I did all the normal things including a reboot all to repeat the same outcomes.

This email is getting long but here is the bottom line.

The 32 bit version of Office 2019 will work well with Word, Outlook, iCloud, but not with excel. This Office 2019 64 bit version will work well with excel, outlook, and Word, but not with iCloud. I have googled this issue and have found out iCloud does not offer a 64 bit version of that program to the chagrin of many users that use iCloud and need to use the 64 bit version of excel due to the size and complexity of excel sheets they use.

I should also mention that I called freedom  scientific about this and initial rep could offer not assistance and elevated it a level 2 tech which I have not heard back from.

I do not understand why the 32 bit version of Office will not run on my system as the Office 2010 and 2016 version did.

I should also mention that Narrator won’t work but NVDA will in Office 2019 32 bit version.

So, here is my question to users in this group. What is your experience with Microsoft 365 and jaws I should also say I am running Windows 10, version 2004 and have tried  this with Jaws 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Hoping to get some feedback and suggestions on your experience and if there are any settings I can change to get this working.

 

Thanks,

Alan

I have had the same problem since I went to Office 365. I cannot youse Icloud to synch my contacts anymore and also cannot use NVDA on my computer. It works in Word but, as soon as I go to Outlook, the computer freezes. Microsoft keeps telling me that its only my computer that it should work and they don’t understand why mine doesn’t. They also raised me to the second level technician and couldn’t figure it out or else they didn’t want to tell me. I was better off with my old Microsoft Office 10 than I am now.

Hey there, Madison, Brian Zolo here in Gahanna, Ohio, feel free to call me
BZ, grin! It sounds like you control alt j hotkey isn't set. You'll need
to go go jaws whatever version you're using on your desktop and then press
alt plus enter and you'll hear jaws say properties and you'll tab until you
hear jaws say shortcut key and if it says none, that means that you'll need
to set the key that you want for your hot key which all you'll have to do is
hit j and then jaws will say control alt j when you hit say line and then
you'll tab over to apply and hit your space bar and then you'll tab until
you hear okay and then hit space bar again and you're done. I always test
mine once I create it just to make sure that it works. Let me know if I can

the people in the video very well. So I turned Jaws using insert f4. Well after
the video was finished I tried to turn Jaws on using control alt j, but it
didn't work, my Dad had to click on Jaws. Now I know I have the command set, so
I'm not sure why it doesn't work. Any ideas? Is there any other way I can turn
Jaws on myself? If Jaws isn't working then my Braille display doesn't work
either (not sure if this is normal or not) so I don't even know where I am. I
hardly ever turn Jaws off, but I'd still like to know why the command to turn it
on doesn't work. Running Jaws 2018. Look forward to any suggestions anyone can
provide!! Thanks Madison

Hi, Madison. You might also want to edit your default configuration file for
JAWS so that it mutes speech instead of going into Speech On Demand. To do
this,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D for the Default Configuration.
3. In the search box, type,

speech options

4. Arrow down to Speech Options, and press ENTER.
5. Under Speech Mode Full Speech, leave this alone.
6. Under Less Speech Options Speech On Demand closed, press SPACE to toggle
to Mute Speech.
7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

Now, if you press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S, it will
mute speech.
Press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S again to return to full
speech.

No Jasmin, I only have the one version. Does this command (insert space s)
just
mute Jaws, or would it mute the speech in the video that I'm watching as
well?

Hi, Madison,
To help you better, I have a couple of questions for you. First, do you have
any
other versions of JAWS on your computer? If so, it may be that the shortcut
is
only set for the previous version. Another thing is that if you want to mute
speech, you can press Insert+Space, then the letter S. Hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Jasmine

Insert+ , then s is a toggle between speak on command or full speech.
While watching a video, use insert+space then s and jaws will be silent unless you press a reading command like insert+up arrow.
When the video is done, press insert+space then s again and Jaws will say full speech and you'll be back in business.

There was something odd going on with Jaws 2019 and 2020 on my system where none of the hotkeys on my desktop worked.
So far with Jaws 2021 they are working again.
Otherwise, the Windows+r then JawsXXXX where the x's are replaced with your jaws version works quite well.

JAWS, and I thank Jasmin for putting me out of my misery as far as that command goes, as I knew it was in the Keystrokes reference but I hadn't found the magic keywords to search for, which are "toggle speech."

It only mutes the speech of JAWS.

The short answer for the "why" of the shortcut not working is, "I have no idea."  The solution that often works to fix it, though, is either to edit the shortcut properties to remove the keyboard shortcut and re-add it afterward, or to nuke the desktop shortcut entirely, put a new one on the desktop, and reassign the shortcut you want to it.

As to turning off JAWS, what I'd suggest is that you don't.  You have the option to put JAWS to sleep, but it is still running, until you wake it back up, or to turn off speech from JAWS, but keep all other aspects running, until you turn speech back on.  But I'll be darned if I can find the commands for either in my own notes that I can dig up right now or in the Keystrokes document (and I would have sworn they were in that).

I think I've done both of these things with both JAWS and NVDA, but I could be getting confused, too.
