Hello, to my fellow JAWS users.
I realize with WLM crashing people left and right, I'm in the process of
getting Office suite 2019, unless I can pick up 2020, or even 2021.
Microsoft wants $250.00 for home and business pro, and I'm waiting for a
return letter where I might be able to pick up the entire office suite,
including out look for around $80.
Here's my situation.
Before, I could abuse the enter key to read my mail for WLM in jaws.
Now I have to not only press the enter key, but control home to go to the
top, then tap my left mouse key before I can read the mail.
Is this a sign of WLM decaying on me already?
Also, I'm attempting to copy my contacts.
With the mail package open, I can ctrl three to open up the contacts, I also
can either is it ctrl a or is it alt a to select all, but I can't copy nor
can I import or export.
I can only import or export mail and or messages.
So, some help to back this info up would be appreciated as well.
Many thanks.

There really aren't very many accounting programs out there at least not when it comes to business solutions. Sage 50 can be used, but you sort of have to know the program, somebody who is very new to it may very well say it is inaccessible, but I have been using Sage 50 and, before it became Sage 50, Simply Accounting for well over 20 years.

Hello there:

I checked the returned copy of the email I posted yesterday with the corrected link. In the returned copy, even though I have the screen maximized, the URL was trunkated across 2 lines, with a space at the end of the line, and the .html on the next line.

If this is the case with your copy of my email, try the following:

Place the cursor on the line immediately below the .html

Press SHIFT+UP ARROW, twice, to highlight the 2 lines of the URL.

Copy the text to the clipboard.

Open your preferred web browser.

Use the command to open the edit box where you type or, paste URL addresses, and paste the URL in there.

Tap the END key, to move to the end of the URL address.

Tap the LEFT ARROW key, to check if there is a space character before the .html or, not.

If the space character is there, delete the space character, before pressing the ENTER key.

I just went through the entire process, which is slightly different from the instructions I copied. I unchecked the “list” checkbox. Did you find the apply button? Then there’s a second OK button. I closed settings, closed Chrome, reopened Chrome, reopened settings, and the “list” checkbox remained unchecked.

 

I’m using the latest release of JAWS 2020, Windows 10-1909 and the latest version of Chrome.

Hi Adrian, this is new and not in the settings, I have gone through every setting in JAWS, including the ones you mentioned. Everything in the list is turned off, and all verbosity levels are set to the lowest.

If I install a version prior to June it goes away, and as soon as I update it comes back.

This is to do with the aria group names change that was made. I assume if the webpage developer created a group of elements on the page but then didn’t give it a unique name, the name defaults to “list with 1 items”, etc.

I use a CRM for work and the groups are named correctly, and it has caused these to be read out, when they weren’t before. I can do without them though and still work effectively, which is why I want FS to give us the option to turn it off.

Andrew,

This is not a new feature. It sounds as though the latest update change your existing settings. So:

I haven’t gone through the following process just now except for the first few steps, but here are instructions that should still work:

Open JAWS settings with JAWS key+6 on the number row above the letters. If you want the change to affect only one application, be sure focus is in that application. Otherwise, press shift-control-d for it to affect all programs.

Type v e r in the search box and verbosity will appear.

One of the results that comes up is configure web verbosity. On my system, it’s the first of eight.

Note: this is different from JAWS’ speech verbosity.

Cycle through the options with the spacebar.

Press f6. The current level is verbalized right away.

Tabbing once initiates “Set Web verbosity levels.” The first button is labeled “High.” Tab again to medium and then again to low.

Press spacebar on the button of your choice.

After pressing the button you select, a tree view of checkboxes appears.

Arrow down to “List” and pressed spacebar to uncheck it.

Note: You may wish to look at the other items in this tree view in case you want to disable, or in some cases enable, more options.

Tab twice to Okay and press spacebar.

Be sure to save before closing the dialog. Control-s should do it.

Hi everyone, since the June update, which introduced an update to JAWS reading Aria group names, JAWS now keeps reading “list containing 1 items” or “list containing 3 items”. It is announcing this before many elements on a webpage when tabbing through.

I have contacted FS to request they fix this, I cant believe they introduced a feature that added speech without also adding a setting in the settings center to turn it off.

If this is annoying anyone else can they please also email Freedom Scientific, the more people that complain the higher on the list it will go. I have installed a version I had downloaded from November last year, just so I don’t have to hear it all the time.

New American Bible: The Leading Catholic Resource for Understanding Holy Scripture 

by Harper Bibles
The New American Bible revised edition is more than a mere Bible translation. Authorized by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine and approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the New American Bible seeks to provide the best resource for understanding the church's sacred Scripture. To begin with, the translation beautifully and accurately conveys the word of God in English, using the most recent scholarly resources available and translating directly from the original languages. While the Bible plays a central role in the church's life, it is also important to remember that it is an ancient book written over several centuries. It carries a rich tradition of interpretation over even more centuries. That is why the many scholars and church teachers who worked years on this project did more than provide a clear and accessible translation; they also sought to provide additional help and guidance for those who truly want to understand what they are reading: Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction, providing the historical context of the work, its literary style, its main themes, its use in the history of the church, as well as an outline of the contents. As you read the Scriptures, notes have been provided at the bottom of the page offering explanations for particular passages, terms, and concepts. Since Scripture often refers to itself, a system of cross-references are provided so you can see where else historical figures, particular stories, or similar concepts are also treated in the Bible. At the end of the Bible, sixteen pages of color maps are provided to help orient the Bible's stories in their geographical context.

moderated List containing 1 items annoying me.

Andrew Law
 

Hi everyone, since the June update, which introduced an update to JAWS reading Aria group names, JAWS now keeps reading “list containing 1 items” or “list containing 3 items”. It is announcing this before many elements on a webpage when tabbing through.

I have contacted FS to request they fix this, I cant believe they introduced a feature that added speech without also adding a setting in the settings center to turn it off.

If this is annoying anyone else can they please also email Freedom Scientific, the more people that complain the higher on the list it will go. I have installed a version I had downloaded from November last year, just so I don’t have to hear it all the time.

Hi, I can confirm that the Dell uses Fn+esc to toggle back to function key mode.

I occasionally get JAWS only saying read or unread in the message list. I just alt tab away and back again to fix it.
The quick settings will change if the application that is open is different each time, unless you select default from the combo box, which is a shift tab away from the search box.

We have Outlook, and the laptop is new from the university where I am a faculty member. So, I think it is all Office 365 based, they just aren’t making us work all on line in office yet.

Sometimes the age-old classic advice of turning the thing off and then back on again often fixes problems. What email program do you use?

The issue you're having where pressing f2 and f3 changes the volume may be the way the computer has been configured. Temporarily, if you press the FN key along with the function key you may get the expected results you're looking for, such as pressing alt-fn-f4 to close a program. Does pressing the FN key along with escape return the function keys to their normal state?

What is your old computer a desktop?

Reason I ask because it sounds like you’re using the key combinations for a desktop not a laptop.

Hi All,

 

I will start by begging your patience as I try to sort out a new Dell laptop and an upgrade from JAWS 17 to JAWS 2020. I will start with a couple of things so far, and I am sure there will be more.

 

  1. JAWS isn’t reading the emails in my inbox – Outlook. It only tells me if and when I have replied, and it tells me if it was sent with high importance.
  2. The function keys don’t seem to be doing anything, although F2 and F3 seem to be controlling the volume. Similarly, insert + the function keys don’t seem to do anything like bring up a list of running windows etc.
  3. I keep going into JAWS quick settings and making changes that it doesn’t seem to be saving.

Many thanks for any help you can provide.

 

Cynthia

I've been a QuickBooks Online subscriber for a few months and the accessibility with Jaws 2020 is very good. So glad I kept asking around until I found out about QBO. As an aside, I am a little surprised that there aren't more accounting programs which can be used with Jaws. JMHO

Thank you, that worked! The odd thing is, even when I load a file into Notepad, if the line doesn't go all the way out to cell #40, when there's a line that does, with Structured Mode set to Line, the cursor snaps right back to cell #1 the way it ought.

Hello:

The link will not work because, there is a space character before the .html

I have removed the space character. I have tested the link, and the link
now works correctly. For the person looking for a driver for their printer,
use the link below:

You can keep structured mode but turn off the showing of controls and their state by going to settings, braille, structured mode, include optional components, and "show control grouping info"...uncheck this box and I think this will make most of this stuff go away for you.

moderated Re: Trouble Reading Text in Notepad

JM Casey
 

That is strange. I have a focus, too, an older one though without the "scratch pad" or whatever they call it. I do not have this happening and cell 1 is certainly being utilised. I now have a broken dot in the middle that's stuck in the up position -- a no doubt mechanical issue I'll need to have resolved at some point, but obviously that's a different sort of thing.
So you're not missing any characters, all lines just start one cell in?
All the time? Do you ever get any character in cell 1 at all?

Whether it's just a plain old text file and JAWS is set to translate to Grade Two Braille, or it's a braille file, in which case I set JAWS to show it in computer braille, everything always starts in cell 2 on my Focus 40 Blue. Why is this, and how can I fix it? I've been a braille display owner for over five years, and it's always been this way.
