I have used Bank of America quite successfully with Jaws and also with their app on an iPhone with VoiceOver.

It is one of the more screen reader friendly banks.

Capital One is as well.

I’ve not used Wells Fargo or chase.

I would like some suggestions for Banking sites that work well wit  Jaws for on line bill paying.

I have used Citi bank for years, they have changed their on line bill pay Web pages and it is difficult. Took me 30 minutes this morning to pay one bill and when I clicked on make another payment it took me off to a page that had nothing to do with bill pay.

Would like to hear experiences with Bank America, Wells Fargo and Chase from those using them.  Thanks, Tom

    Today I installed the JAWS update without problems.  However, my server migrated my emails to Google Mail.  With help from a sighted friend and a tech guy at my server, we did the deed.  I note that since then my JFW list emails come to a spam folder.  Is there a way of altering this?

moderated Corel WordPerfect

Richard Turner
 

in today's Jaws 2020 update, there was a line in the enhancement list that caught my attention.
There are scripts from Corel Corp to improve Jaws with WordPerfect. 
I suspect you are about 20 years late, but I wondered if anyone is actually using WordPerfect with Jaws and if the reveal codes are accessible, and what the overall performance is like?
I used WordPerfect for NOS, and then WordPerfect 6, 8, and 10 with Windows and Window-Eyes andx was great. Then, Corel turned its back on screen reader users, and I had to switch to Word, which since 2003, has been excellent.
But,  I'm very curious if it really works with Jaws and if these new scripts help.

Try this.

1. Open the ribbon search edit field (ALT-Q)
2. Input - Switch Ribbons
3. Press DOWN ARROW until “Switch Ribbons” is selected

If it’s checked, Press ENTER to uncheck it. That should fix the issue.

JM Casey
 

There are a number of ways to do it.

 

These days (with windows 10) I find it better to makea  playlist using the enqueue in winamp option in the file explorer context menu. You can do this for files or folders, and when you go to the winamp window, hit alt-e and then ctrl-tab to move to the playlist editor subwindow, and you will find that you h ave a playlist in place, which you can then save.

You can still do it from within the programme, by hitting shift-l to add folders, l to add files.

 

There’s another way too: create the playlist file in notepad yourself. I know a few people on here or some other lists have stated they like doing this and I get it – for small playlists anyway – still seems like a lot of extra work though J

Hi Andy::

Tabbing only provides me with 2 announcements: "Jaws install", and "progress 69%.

Subject: JAWS2020 Build 2008.24 Update Download Link + What's New

 

Hi All,

 

Below is the direct download link to the J2020.2008.24 update and what's new in this release.

 

32 & 64 Bit link:

 

 

 

What's new in this release:


Enhancements in JAWS 2020.2008.24 (August 2020)

 

The following is a list of improvements made between the June 2020 release and the August 2020 update.

 

list of 26 items
• Once you have installed this August 2020 update, the English language versions will now include notification of official releases of new versions such
as the 2021 release coming out later this year. When you check for updates using the English versions of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion, major updates will
now also appear in the list once they are released. If your license is authorized to run the new version, the update can be installed. Otherwise, the update
is shown along with a message stating that a license renewal is required for use of this new version to work in other than 40 minute mode.

 

• Resolved an issue reading Tables in Microsoft Word 365 where JAWS was reporting "table" at the beginning of each row as you navigated by line.
• Resolved an issue with navigating tables in Chrome reported by Google where cells containing the ColSpan (column span) attribute were causing issues
when navigating by cell.
• Resolved an issue in Microsoft Word where text that was previously hidden and then unhidden, was not being read using speech.
• In Chrome and Edge, resolved an issue where selecting text from Right to Left was very sluggish in edit controls.
• Resolved an issue where HTML controls that started with punctuation were not reading as expected.
• Resolved an issue in Internet Explorer reported by SSA where JAWS was not honoring the language tags in ARIA live regions.
• Updated the Help Topic for Microsoft Edge to reflect support based on the latest Edge Chromium browser.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was overly verbose when tabbing to a Video Player on web pages in Chrome and Firefox.
• Resolved a reported issue where Mouse Echo in Excel was too verbose, especially when moving the mouse across empty cells. These improvements make mouse
navigation with Fusion much better.
• When using Google Docs with Chrome, resolved an issue reported by Google where pressing the ALT key to access the Docs menu would sometimes unexpectedly
open the Chrome menu instead.
• Posted a TSN on the support pages for JAWS and Fusion customers using the latest version of Skype from Microsoft. A problem has been introduced with
this update which causes our software to stop reading correctly. The work around is to activate the menu with the ALT key, and then press ESC to leave
the menu and return to Skype. The issue has been reported to Microsoft and we anticipate it will be resolved in the near future.
• Resolved reported issues in Google Sheets where accurate column or row headings were not always being reported as expected while navigating.
• Resolved a reported issue in Libre Office where JAWS and Fusion would fail to read every other line after opening a document that was previously edited
and saved.
• Resolved issues reading prior messages in Zoom meetings and webinars using the JAWS commands, CTRL+1 through 0.
• Updated scripts and Help files provided by Corel Corp with changes to improve support for WordPerfect.
• Resolved problems where JAWS Personalized Web settings, accessed in Quick Settings (INSERT+V), were not saving and loading correctly. Personalized Web
Settings allow you to customize JAWS settings for a particular website. For example, if you have a particular page where you do not want JAWS to Automatically
read, you can make that change apply only for the specific domain rather than global.
• Added updated Braille display drivers tested and provided by Humanware to support new Braille devices shipping as of August 2020.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the ALT Text for Graphics in both Chrome and Edge. Previously, JAWS was reading the Title.
• In Chrome and Edge, JAWS now relies on the "layout-guess" attribute to determine when a table is a layout or data table. Previously, JAWS could make
mistakes when the browser's zoom level was very high, such as 200%.
• Resolved a reported issue in Outlook where pressing CTRL+E to access the Search option on the ribbon, would not work as expected when the JAWS Virtual
Ribbons were enabled.
• Resolved an issue in Word 365 where JAWS would announce "misspelled" on each character instead of when you first encounter the misspelling when JAWS
is configured to detect spelling errors as you navigate.
• Resolved an issue where navigating to www.kmiz.com using Chrome was causing a hang in JAWS as it was attempting to process this site.
• Resolved an issue with the new Braille Viewer where "Computer Braille" was being announced under certain circumstances when navigating in Outlook.
• Added a Topic to the Help System to include all Layered Keystrokes. Previously, only the Table Layer commands were included.
• Added 8 Dot Braille Translation Table for Dutch.
