Re: Determine JFW language via script?

Chris Nestrud
 

What about the GetJFWLang function:

Gets the three letter abbreviation of the JAWS Language that is
currently in use. This is the language of the resource DLLs that are
loaded by JAWS. This is not necessarily the same as the current speech
synthesizer language.

Hi guys,
I have stopped using JFW actively as my main screenreader, but I still greatly love and respect this software (no, I don't use NVDA).
I am writing a script for JAWS which might be very useful for some people, but some stuff in it must be language dependent unfortunately. Is there a way I can get the JAWS language via script or better yet, a language of Windows? I know there is a scripting list somewhere, but I ask here since it is a relatively simple question.






Re: mute topic option

 

David,

           That's how it should work, though it's been ages since I last activated a Mute this Topic link in an e-mail message.  If you are not logged in on the Groups.io website, you will be prompted to enter your login ID (the e-mail address with which you've subscribed) and password, as topic muting is something managed under your account level settings, but everything is already "filled in" as far as the actual information to mute a specific topic.  If you have never established a password for your Groups.io account, then see:  Establishing a Groups.io Website Account Password If You’ve Been an E-Mail Only User (docx)


            What Sandra describes sounds like focus has somehow jumped back to the Reply to Sender link rather than remaining on the Mute this topic link.

That depends entirely on what it is you're trying to do.  There are many things where I still strongly prefer Command Prompt to PowerShell because, to my mind, the syntax is cleaner and easier.  Tool to task.

But there are definitely a lot of things that PowerShell is much better for, but they're also not things that most typical users will ever need to do.

Thanks, Mario. This workaround does the trick. In Edge, I need to add to your two steps an additional two presses of F6. Meanwhile, I'll keep looking for a solution.

Shirley and all,

A week or two ago, my sighted wife happened to be alongside me when I restarted my computer. It was taking a long time. She saw a message saying that Office 2016 was being updated. JAWS did not verbalize it.

I set Office updates to automatic a long time ago. I was going to suggest making that change so that it happens during the restart process. However, that option isn't showing up anymore in my file menus.
Here's the best I can offer, based on what I could figure out just now:

While in Word, press alt-f.
Arrow up to "More options." Press enter.
Arrow up to Account. Start tabbing.
The update button should appear. Press spacebar and tab through the options.

I hope this gets you somewhere.

Command Prompt is the successor of what those of us old enough to be

PowerShell is a much newer CLI with a very different command syntax, but
where a number of "classic" commands are aliased so that they can be
used in their familiar format with PowerShell.

Hi Bonnie,

 

What will help in giving instructions to change the keyboared layout is, are you running Jaws from the system tray and are you using the capslock key as the Jaws key?  Also, does your laptop have a numpad or not?

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: Tkeystrokes to get to laptop layout

 

Hi everyone,
I worked with Technical support last week on getting my laptop to work with fusion. We changed my keyboard configuration to laptop layout, but for some reason the setting didn’t save. I have gone over and over the interface trying to find the place to change it back to laptop layout, and I can’t find it anywhere. Help is not helping at all. Does anyone know where I can change the setting? I am using fusion 2021. Thank you! Also, for some reason help only seems to address zoom text, nothing comes up about jaws. Very strange.

Thank you, Bonnie

What is the difference between Power Shell and Command Prompt?

I am going to give the very short answer:  Both are command line interfaces (CLIs) included with Windows.

Command Prompt is the successor of what those of us old enough to be familiar with DOS knew as DOS.

PowerShell is a much newer CLI with a very different command syntax, but where a number of "classic" commands are aliased so that they can be used in their familiar format with PowerShell.
