Richard,

            Pretty much any of my tutorials are in MS-Word, but, I also tend to put "(docx)" or "(MS-Word)" afterward as part of the link to identify as such.  I don't have that on this link in my own MS-Word file I copy the link from, so I'll add it.

Thank you Mr. Vogel.

 

I have a very nit-picky request.

Since your link did not say it was to a word document, I clicked on it thinking it would take me to a web site.

Since I know you are trustworthy, I opened the file and enable editing.

 

Please state when a link is to a file rather than a web resource.

 

Or, what I and others might prefer is to just paste the contents into the body of the message.

 

Like I say, I know that is being a bit nit-picky, but there you have it.

 

Thanks for the directions, they are very helpful.

Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs

I am like Mr. Turner in that I only open any MS-Office file format if I have every reason to believe it is safe to do so.  Anything downloaded, whether via e-mail or otherwise, is scanned by Windows Security before I can ever touch it.

I agree that Microsoft is trying to  be helpful, but for me, personally, it's overkill.  If one is circumspect about what one opens, and the sources from which one will open something, you are very unlikely to have an issue.  If you're someone who does not wish to do this, then keep protected mode on, as it could save a world of hurt.

When I open them, I hit f6 and tab to enable editing and it works.

Then I can do a save as.

Microsoft is trying to be helpful and keep us from unwittingly opening a file with a virus macro so it defaults to putting attachments in protected view.

I find it is not hard to work with them and there may be a setting buried somewhere that would let you remove that protection from happening.

I never open an attachment unless I am 100% sure it is from someone I know and that I was expecting it.

Hello,

I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2020 and MS word2016. When ever someone sent me a MS word file it is always in protected mode. A number of people that sent me the file didn’t send the file in protected mode. Is there a way to stop this from happening? To read it I have to move in and out of the window. I cannot save the file so I would copy it and paste it in another file. I was able to save attachments in Outlook. I still would like to be able to open the file from the email, read it and then save it.

Thanks,

Can you just save it and then open it, press F6 and enabling editing? That’s usually what I do.

Well, I’ve solved the problem myself.  When you get into Google Calendar and find it is speaking in a foreign language you hit the Application key and arrow down to where it says Translate into English and hit the Enter key.  Once it gets translated you can go to the Settings page.  I did this, and guess what?  The default language was not English.  It was Slovokian.  There is a place in Settings where you can choose the language you want.  I chose English United States, hit the Enter key, waited for the setting to change and voila!!!  It works!!!

Hi Rick,

 

I use Google Calendar al the time with Jaws, but I’m using Microsoft Edge rather than Chrome. I’ve never encountered the language issue with it. I suggest trying a different browser. Also, the app is quite accessible, I use both concurrently with no issue at all.

 

If you’d like to troubleshoot one-on-one, feel free to reach out and we can have a chat. Not to worry group, if Rick does choose this option, I’ll write out a “how we fixed it”. 😊

The problem was that the default language was not English.  It was Slovokian.   Once I set the default language to English it worked.

I haven't had a chance to look at google calendar directly, and your message had too much information to really parse what was going on. If I heard it correctly, it sounded like you had two languages going on for the calendar, and that you were getting US holidays. If you use Gmail with the full version (not the html only version), does that at least read correctly for you?

Richard,

I think I borrowed the “compact” terminology from the iphone.  The Nathan I am using is the basic one that comes installed with JAWS Vocalizer.  I tried, but did not like the Nathan Premium, so it’s not that one.   I’m going to be out of pocket for a few day, but can test more with my personal laptop later.

Hi,

How do you get the compact voices?

I installed Nathan Premium and yes, the emoji panel reads fine but when I selected the above Wine glass and read that line it says “12.”

It will say more after I send this.

When I went to add voices, I did not find an option for compact.  I’d like to compare Apple to Apples, granted, since I am on the beta, it is more like comparing Red delicious with Fuji apples.

I Just inserted the above to emojis from the Windows emoji panel and Nathan Compact in JAWS 2020 February or March release,  announced them correctly, both on the panel and after inserting.  As I  write this message, the top one says “rolling on the floor laughing” and the second says “two hearts”.  I’m not on JAWS 2021 yet, so I wonder if that is an issue with the new version.

But, after you select the emoji, before you send the message, what does it say with the Vocalizer voice.

Hi,

I assume that this is not the case with other synthesizers such as Eloquence and Windows OneCore (OneCore voices are best ones to use when dealing with emojis). If I’m correct, it is something to ask Nuance through Vispero.

Cheers,

Joseph

Thanks Joseph,

Very interesting.

I tried SAPI 5 and Eloquence and they read the emoji just fine.

I went back to my default of Tom enhanced from Vocalizer and it read it when I re-read a sent message.

Then, I just added one here and it just says 12.

Hi,

This is a synthesizer issue, and unless JAWS is told to process certain Unicode symbols directly and send them to synths, it won’t be able to read emojis and some Unicode symbols correctly.

Cheers,

I find I have to use Narrator to arrow through the emoji panel, and after picking one, Narrator reads the emoji just fine.

Jaws 2021 reads a number.

I sent a note to a friend who has a great job at a place where it is not uncommon for the office to go out for a drink at 3 PM to end the day.  So I used the whiskey glass emoji.  Narrator reads it accurately.  Jaws 2021 says “twelve.”

 

Any thoughts about how Jaws can be made to speak the emoji?

moderated Webcam Recommendation

Vaughn Brown
 

Hello,

 

I bought a new computer and wanting to purchase a webcam. The purchases will be creating videos, zoom chat, teaching online music lessons, and giving presenations.

 

What are some recommendations that are simple and JFW friendly? I am using JFW 2020, Win. 10 as well as Katalena and Voiceover.

 

Thank you all!

 

Vaughn

Hi Rick,

 

I use Google Calendar al the time with Jaws, but I’m using Microsoft Edge rather than Chrome. I’ve never encountered the language issue with it. I suggest trying a different browser. Also, the app is quite accessible, I use both concurrently with no issue at all.

 

If you’d like to troubleshoot one-on-one, feel free to reach out and we can have a chat. Not to worry group, if Rick does choose this option, I’ll write out a “how we fixed it”. 😊

 

HTH,

Sarah

Recently I listened to a Freedom Scientific archived webinar from last year that talked about using JAWS with Google Calendar.  I have decided I want to try to learn to use Google Calendar but every time I go to calendar.google.com JAWS starts speaking to me in a foreign language.  When I called Freedom Scientific Technical Support they told me several other people had had the same problem and said it had something to do with Google settings.  I went to my Google account, signed in using Facebook, found Settings, and when I checked to see what language was the default language it showed English United States, which is just the language setting I thought I had.  Then after discovering that the default language was the correct one I got out of my Google account and opened up Google Chrome, which is my Internet  browser, hit the Alt+L keystroke to open up the addressbar, entered calendar.google.com, and hit the Enter key.  When the page loaded, here is what was on it:

I am sending a “cc,” of this message to Vispero Support with the hope that either one of you or one of them will be able to put a finger on what is happening and possibly tell me how to rectify this problem and have Google Calendar start speaking in English.

Cohn, Jonathan
 

I haven't had a chance to look at google calendar directly, and your message had too much information to really parse what was going on. If I heard it correctly, it sounded like you had two languages going on for the calendar, and that you were getting US holidays. If you use Gmail with the full version (not the html only version), does that at least read correctly for you?

Hi,

How do you get the compact voices?

I installed Nathan Premium and yes, the emoji panel reads fine but when I selected the above Wine glass and read that line it says “12.”

It will say more after I send this.

When I went to add voices, I did not find an option for compact.  I’d like to compare Apple to Apples, granted, since I am on the beta, it is more like comparing Red delicious with Fuji apples.

moderated FW: Using Google Calendar with JAWS

Rick Miller
 

Did any of you get the message I sent on Monday about the trouble I am having accessing Google calendar?  I have not heard from anybody and this morning I can’t even get hold of Freedom Scientific.

Subject: Using Google Calendar with JAWS

 

Dear Listers:

 

Recently I listened to a Freedom Scientific archived webinar from last year that talked about using JAWS with Google Calendar.  I have decided I want to try to learn to use Google Calendar but every time I go to calendar.google.com JAWS starts speaking to me in a foreign language.  When I called Freedom Scientific Technical Support they told me several other people had had the same problem and said it had something to do with Google settings.  I went to my Google account, signed in using Facebook, found Settings, and when I checked to see what language was the default language it showed English United States, which is just the language setting I thought I had.  Then after discovering that the default language was the correct one I got out of my Google account and opened up Google Chrome, which is my Internet  browser, hit the Alt+L keystroke to open up the addressbar, entered calendar.google.com, and hit the Enter key.  When the page loaded, here is what was on it:

As you can hear, this is definitely a foreign language. 

 

I am sending a “cc,” of this message to Vispero Support with the hope that either one of you or one of them will be able to put a finger on what is happening and possibly tell me how to rectify this problem and have Google Calendar start speaking in English.

 

Thank you for any help you can give.

Hi,
Enhance edit support is turn on by default for Edge.

Give the following a try to see if it'll help:
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,

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers, Lakers & Rams!

Hi all,
Anyone experience inconsistency when navigating by letters in form field using the left/right arrow?
This happens on my machine but only in Chromium edge. I’m running JAWS 2020.
