  Hi, a nice feature to be sure but playing around with it this morning, it seems the pitch has lowered.  Is there a way to address this as well?  Thanks, Mitch

It has something to do with timings.  I connected through a wired connection and it didn't work right until I installed a faster ssd drive.

Here is the full explanation from the Jaws What’s new under help:

JAWS now offers a set of layered keystrokes for quickly adjusting volume. To access this layer, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by V. Next, press J to control the volume of JAWS speech or S to control the main system volume. After pressing J or S, use the ARROW keys to raise or lower the volume in small increments, or PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to raise or lower the volume in larger increments. Press ESC to exit the layer when finished.

Note: When adjusting volume with the ARROW keys or PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN, the lowest level that can be set is 10 percent.

Hi Richard,

 

thanks for that.

by any chance, do you have email addresses for these?

i have raised a support ticket with sight and sound in the U.K. yesterday, but to date, they have only sent the standard "thanks for your email" reply.

 

at this stage, its really annoying that this problem still exists.

I’d recommend sending your email again to Eric and to the Jaws support link, as some times it takes a couple tries to get their attention.

I had an issue that is finally solved in 2021 that went back to 2019 and it took several tries to get their attention.

They are rather busy, so I’m not blaming anyone, just pointing out that the old saying is true: “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.”

hi, thanks for all your help. the verbosity problem is solved. however, for the jaws not loading problem, i found a curious thing. i am connecting wirelessly to my router. if i use the 2.4 ghz band, jaws loads correctly. if i use the 5ghz band, the problem occurs. i have tried this now with three different computers, all with the same result. this brings me back to the original problem i had in 2020, when someone mentioned the "grace period authorization". i now firmly believe, that this is the problem. jaws is trying to authorize itself too fast, and then doesn't load correctly. the 2.4 ghz band is slower than the 5ghz band, but not by much. however, it seems to be enough, to make the problem go away. the only thing now, is that i cannot use the 5ghz band on my router without unloading and reloading jaws 2021. i reported this to errick dammery in freedom scientific when it started last year. if there is anyone on this forum from freedom scientific, could you please pay attention to what is being said? again, sorry for rambling, but you would have thought, that this problem would be solved, as it now spans two versions of jaws. god knows, we pay enough for it!!!. i know which band on my router i am connecting to, as the 2.4 and 5 ghz bands have separate ssids. regards and thanks, pat.

I just tried this again here, and it worked.

 

Hit the insert or Jaws key on the numberpad and the space immediately after that.  Then follow this by the letters V and J.

 

You can adjust the volume using the up and down arrow keys from there.

moderated Microsoft Edge, no more favorites manager/have to do with context key now

Hello,

I just figured out, for those of you wondering where the favorites manager is in Edge, that … there’s not one … not really, anyway. When you press CTRL shift and o—of course altogether, don’t move anywhere in the tree view. Press your applications key and, for those of you wanting to “sort by name,” arrow down to choice 4 of however many choices it says. Of course, this is for JAWS users. The choice is “sort by name” and hit enter. Just my teaching tip for a little bit/haven’t put anything up for a while, so …

You will need to be in JAWS 2021 
Under:

Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2012.57 (January 19, 2021)




•  A new feature was introduced earlier this month, designed to let a user change the volume of JAWS speaking or the system volume itself using a layered keystroke: 

The following is a list of improvements made between the initial 2021 release and the January 2021 update.

New Layered Keystrokes for Adjusting JAWS and System Volume

Many users working with conferencing applications like Zoom and Teams have raised the issue of JAWS volume blocking their ability to hear a meeting or webinar while trying to navigate in other applications. To solve this issue, we have introduced a new feature that lets you easily adjust the volume of JAWS independently from the volume in other applications, such as Zoom, Teams, Skype, YouTube, or other apps that play audio.

JAWS and Fusion now offer a set of layered keystrokes for quickly adjusting volume. To access this layer, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by V. Next, press J to control the volume of JAWS speech or S to control the main system volume. After pressing J or S, use the ARROW keys to raise or lower the volume in small increments, or PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to raise or lower the volume in larger increments. Press ESC to exit the layer when finished. Volume changes remain in effect until you later adjust them using the same commands.

Note: When adjusting volume with the ARROW keys or PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN, the lowest level that can be set is 10 percent.

If you are using the Laptop Keyboard Layout, to open the JAWS Context Menu, you need to press, CTRL+SHIFT+CAPS LOCK+J.

Patrick,

Curious, have you tried using alternate Insert keys with J to see if that works?  For me, I cannot get the JAWS menu to open with the caps lock key, but it works with the numpad 0 or the standard insert key.

Hi,

 

I haven’t posted here in a while, so bare with me if this has been covered.

A simple one first.

Jaws 2021 speaks the count and position of shortcuts on the desktop, files in a folder etc.

For example:

It will say “file.pdf 1 of 20”

If the folder has 20 files in it.

I have just upgraded from jaws 2018.

2018 did not say the number or position of the file in the folder.

Is there a way to turn this off?

I only want to know the name of the file, not what position it is in the list, or how many files are in the directory.

 

The second thing:

I mentioned this before, but wondered if anyone since has encountered this.

I have raised a ticket about it with sight and sound in the uk.

When jaws 2021 loads, you cannot use “insert+j” to bring up the jaws menu.

You have to quit jaws and start it again.

I mentioned this problem before with jaws 2020 (demo version), but i thought it might go away, now that i have been able to purchase the full version of jaws 2021.

However, it has not.

I have tried all the usual, uninstall reinstall, repair, etc.

Jaws 2018 is not on the computer now.

The only thing that i have left is to uninstall jaws 2021, remove any files or folders with “freedom scientific” on it, clean the registery with ccleaner, and then reinstall jaws 2021.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry if i am rambling.

 

Stay safe,

 

Pat

Hi Guys,

 

Here is a sight with lots of descriptive movies. Jeff is continually updating to the sight. He also have lots of other accessible stuff on his homepage. He also has links to another movie vault. The name slips me at this moment.

The subscription would be to SendSpace to get faster download speeds. You would need to read about all that after you sign up for a free blind mice account so you can access the movie vault. If you do not mind the slow download speeds, there is no charge for the movie vault itself. They do request donations.
Some movies seem to be immediately available without SendSpace. 
Yes, they are getting new movies all the time. If you did not find much you may have not figured out their site.
I just checked and the first movie listed was Blithe Spirit from 2020.
I do not use it much, but it is a great service to get the MP3 files of movie soundtracks with audio description.

When the Blind Mice Mall Movie Vault uses direct download it works great.

If you have to use the free SendSpace download it is a pain.

If you buy a subscription for say 1 month to the high speed download with Sendspace, it works well.

 

As for other sites, I know of none that have mp3 files with audio description like what Blind Mice Mall offers.

 

Then, you are left with finding movie or TV shows for rent or purchase that include Audio Description or subscribing to services like Netflix who provide audio description on all their original content, or Disney Plus which offers a lot of movies and series with audio description.

The best source for finding out what shows have audio description is through ACB.
