It seems to crash when I tab over to Folders and hit the enter or the space bar.  I sometimes cannot do anything after that.  Jaws crashes, and even when it comes back, I have to close out mail and reopen it.

Subject: Is Windows Mail now working with JFW

 

 

Bizarrely just a couple of days after sending a Support message to FS Windows Mail seems, touch wood, to have stabilised with Jaws.

I am typing this email in Mail with Jaws, something I have not been able to do for weeks.

I don’t know if it is anything to do with the new January update, though the first few times I checked this out Mail continues to crash with Jaws running anyway. Apparently no longer. .

Alternatively there might have been some unseen update on Windows I suppose.

The only thing I have been doing differently is that I had routinely also had thunderbird open in another window   because of the propensity of Mail to crash with Jaws. However I have just closed thunderbird and Mail is continuing to work with Jaws so it looks like it is not related..

Before I report this apparent improvement I wonder if the other people experiencing problems with Mail have also seen the problem resolved?

Thanks for the confirmation, Bill.  This is good to know, and hopefully will benefit others.

 

I use my older Windows 7 laptop for a very limited number of applications, and will probably retire it eventually.

 

I keep it running for those limited purposes, and as a backup if nothing else.

It sounds like you are invoking the voice assistant.

That’s what Jaws says when it cannot hear your command.

If you are not intentionally trying to use the new Voice Assistant, open the jaws menu with insert+j and open the utilities menu.

The first item is the Voice Assistant.

Hello,

The other day I updated Jaws to the most recent version of Jaws 2021. For some reason out of the clear blue I hear a ding, Jaws says “I didn’t hear anything” and then dings again. I was in a MS word document. Has anyone else had this happen or am I hallucinating?

moderated Re: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Hello. There is a workaround for the bug involving JAWS not identifying selected text when in Jarte. Until the issue has been fixed you can use the place markers feature to mark the beginning of a block of text with ctrl+Windows+K. Next, move to the other end of the block of text and press the layered keystroke insert+space key followed by the letter M. Once this has been done you can delete, cut or copy the text. For best results it is good to first save the document before issuing these commands. Keyboard Manager can also be used to reassign these keys to ones of your choosing. Users of Leasey already have additional keystrokes to mark text as well as copying and even appending a block of text to the clipboard. Questions about these matters should be sent to this list and not to me privately, please.

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte Mario, I am sorry to tell you that I am able to verify your friend's findings, at least with the January build of JAWS 2021. I've been a user of Jarte for many years and I'm quite certain that this is a new regression. I don't have JAWS

2020 on this laptop or else I'd compare the results with that version.

I'm wondering if someone running JAWS

2020 or earlier can confirm this behavior.

A few things to note. In order to get JAWS to speak the location of the caret or cursor from within Jarte enhanced editor mode should be disabled within Settings Center but please do this once Jarte has been opened to ensure that toggling this setting to off will not negatively impact another program.

For reference when you press the shift key with arrow key navigation the expected behavior is that you would hear the text which you are highlighting, along with the word "selected." With Jarte text is being selected but JAWS is silent while selection commands are being issued.

If others can confirm this behavior please do send a bug report to support@... with as much specific information as you can

provide: version of JAWS, steps to reproduce, expected results and actual results. 6.2 is the latest version of Jarte.

Please direct any responses about this to the list and not to me privately as I am not able to provide individual support for Jarte or with this issue, in general.

an acquaintance is having a problem that I'm hoping someone can help.

he is using Jarte, and when he selects some text to delete, it is not read back as selected like it does using Wordpad. he would prefer using Jarte because he can start a new document by simply pressing control+n and then use control+tab to switch to a different document.

 

I helped him disable Enhanced edit in the configuration for JAWS 2020 so it is possible to review the text.

is there another setting that can be modified to fix this problem?

Hi, Marty. Perhaps you are not filling in something that needs to be filled in, or perhaps there is a confirm button that you are not pressing.

 

Yes, you can use another person's account if that person gives you permission, even if you don't have a free account. The only drawback is that you cannot both use the account on two devices. It will sign you out on one, and leave the other device open.

Hi.  Go to www.bit.org which is a Denver based charity that interacts with companies to place blind and visually impaired job seekers as their potential work force.  There is a form on their site where you can fill in your details such as your vocational interests, and they will get back to you for an interview.  They also interact with blind and visually impaired folks outside of the US to help place them in US firms based in the individual's country of origin.  Cheers and all the best.

David, using JAWS 2020 with the latest update and the portable version of Jarte, I have tried and experienced the same issue. I'm wondering if it has to do with the highlighting that Jarte does (or lack of) when selecting text?

enhanced edit mode has been disabled after opening the settings center by launching it from pressing insert+f2.

anyone have an idea or fix?

Mario, I am sorry to tell you that I am able to verify your friend's findings, at least with the January build of JAWS 2021. I've been a user of Jarte for many years and I'm quite certain that this is a new regression. I don't have JAWS 2020 on this laptop or else I'd compare the results with that version. I'm wondering if someone running JAWS 2020 or earlier can confirm this behavior.
A few things to note. In order to get JAWS to speak the location of the caret or cursor from within Jarte enhanced editor mode should be disabled within Settings Center but please do this once Jarte has been opened to ensure that toggling this setting to off will not negatively impact another program.
For reference when you press the shift key with arrow key navigation the expected behavior is that you would hear the text which you are highlighting, along with the word "selected." With Jarte text is being selected but JAWS is silent while selection commands are being issued.
If others can confirm this behavior please do send a bug report to support@vispero.com with as much specific information as you can provide: version of JAWS, steps to reproduce, expected results and actual results. 6.2 is the latest version of Jarte.
Please direct any responses about this to the list and not to me privately as I am not able to provide individual support for Jarte or with this issue, in general.

an acquaintance is having a problem that I'm hoping someone can help.
he is using Jarte, and when he selects some text to delete, it is not read back as selected like it does using Wordpad. he would prefer using Jarte because he can start a new document by simply pressing control+n and then use control+tab to switch to a different document.

I helped him disable Enhanced edit in the configuration for JAWS 2020 so it is possible to review the text.
is there another setting that can be modified to fix this problem?

Kevin,

 

I have not encountered this. Sounds like Sharky is attempting to listen for a voice command. Personally, I have not played with that feature.

Hello,

The other day I updated Jaws to the most recent version of Jaws 2021. For some reason out of the clear blue I hear a ding, Jaws says “I didn’t hear anything” and then dings again. I was in a MS word document. Has anyone else had this happen or am I hallucinating?

Thanks,

Kevin

I’ve had it happen too, and it’s kind of annoying.

It sounds like you are invoking the voice assistant.

That’s what Jaws says when it cannot hear your command.

If you are not intentionally trying to use the new Voice Assistant, open the jaws menu with insert+j and open the utilities menu.

The first item is the Voice Assistant.

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."

"Why, what did she tell you?"

"I don't know, I didn't listen."
