moderated Jaws 2021 question/problem

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I upgraded to Jaws 2021 almost 2 weeks ago now and I have a problem that I've
noticed. When I go to my favourites list in Edge, or when I go into contacts in
Outlook, or start a new message in Outlook type a letter and then do ctrl k to
bring up a list of addresses starting with that letter, Jaws will only read a
few items and then stop speaking. When this happens in favourites I have to alt
tab to something else and then alt tab back and then Jaws will start reading
again, but then stops speaking again after reading a few more items. When this
happens in Outlook I have to go to the bottom of the list of addresses starting
with that letter or the end of my contacts and then arrow up and Jaws will read
a few more and then stop speaking again. Now when I upgraded I was asked if I
wanted to import settings or something like that and I said yes, though I don't
recall having any settings set that have anything to do with this. So I'm
wondering, is this an issue with Jaws 2021, or is there some setting or
something that I can change so that Jaws will stop doing this? I'm just glad
that my Braille display works when this happens. Now, I know some of you might
suggest switching to an earlier version of Jaws, but I do these things on a
daily basis, and besides I don't have any earlier versions of Jaws on this
computer as I uninstalled 2018 after I upgraded. Running Jaws 2021, Outlook
2013, the latest Edge and Windows 10 2004. Thanks for any help/suggestions
anyone can provide!!!!!

moderated Re: using jaws how do you set up for the first time WIFI on a new computer?

Kevin Minor
 

Hi.

Here's the basic steps to get WI-FI going:

Hit WINDOWS+B to get to the SYS Tray.

ARROW until you find something about networks are available, or no connection to network. Since I'm connected, it reports the network I'm connected to. Hit the applications key, or SHIFT+F10 should do it.

Select Open Internet Settings.


TAB until you find SHOW AVAILABLE NETWORKS.

You'll now find the networks you can connect to. Locate your network, and press ENTER.

The rest is easy to do. Just follow the prompts.

If you have any questions, send them on.

Kevin, Valerie and Jilly

Hank,
If using Windows 10 :
Go to "Settings"
Tab to "Network & Internet"
Tab to "Wi-Fi"
Tab to "Available Connections "
There you will need to select your router and enter information.

This section is accessible with JAWS.

Dan
PS You may have a shortcut to the Netowrk connections / wi fi in your
notification area.

You simply step through the standard setup under Settings, Network & Internet, WiFi Pane.  You'll probably activate the Show Available Networks link, choose the WiFi network you wish to connect to from that list, and you'll be prompted to enter the password/key for that WiFi network.

You can also go directly through the system tray.  WinKey+B, right arrow until you hit the item for Network & Internet access (and I cannot tell you exactly how that will be announced as it depends on whether you've got it in the overflow area or on the main system tray display and what you are, or are not, currently connected to), activating it, then down arrowing to the WiFi network you wish to connect to.  Activate that item and enter the necessary password/key information for the WiFi network and the checkbox for Connect automatically should be set as you see fit.

Sometimes Narrator sees buttons that JAWS doesn't. Also NVDA sometimes
does. Worth a try.

Hi Bill,

 

Yes, I am running Windows 10, but when I pressed enter on Speakers, I did not see volume mixer. It said something like “speakers real teque high definition audio”, and volume left-right slider, one of one. When tabbing, the only option was “mute toggle check box not checked”.

 

I hope you will be able to explain this issue.

Hi, Jezim. If you're running Windows 10, to adjust JAWS volume,

 

1. Look for the Speakers icon in System Tray, and press ENTER.

2. Arrow down to Volume Mixer, and press ENTER.

3. TAB to the Volume for JAWS for Windows FSSynth32 COM object slider, and adjust as desired.

4. TAB to the Volume for Application file for JAWS slider, and also adjust as desired.

5. This should set JAWS to its highest setting for the level for which you have the speakers set.

Hi list,

 

For some reason, suddenly JAWS volume on my PC was lowered; I went to system tray and increased the speaker from 16 to 26 and now I can hear it better, but after restarting PC, I found JAWS volume on log on screen to high as set on 26, but after signing in, the unchanged set volume was still lower.

 

I tried experiencing this after upgrading JAWS, but I believe it is a coincidence.

 

Perhaps I was not able to explain the issue properly, so please feel free to ask me for clarifications.

 

Thank you in advance,
