Jim:

 

Sorry, Don is correct.  The key stroke is control shift E.

 

Control Shift N is used to set up new folders in Windows 10 file explorer.

 

Sorry for the confusion.

Try control shift N.

Yes, I think the banners stay on your screen for a bit of time before they go away and disappear. For me, I want to hear them but not interfere with what I'm doing so I would rather review them in the action center at my convenience.

The type of license for JAWS (Home/Pro) has nothing to do with your version of Windows.  JAWS Home is for the home user and the Professional license is for those using it at work.  The software is exactly the same and the features are the same.

Hi Alison.

 

I’m using Windows 10, so my instructions are for that.

 

First, hit the WINDOWS key. This should put you in the search area where you can type something.

 

Now start typing BLUETOOTH. You’ll get something like Bluetooth and other devices. Hit ENTER on that.

 

You’ll be where an option is add Bluetooth device. That’s what you want. You might also have to turn Bluetooth on. In this area, TAB is your friend.

 

I think once you select ADD Bluetooth device, you may have to select Bluetooth again.

 

Now put your Bluetooth headphones in pairing mode. TAB around this screen for a list of Bluetooth devices. Look for your headphones, and hit ENTER on them. If all goes well, they’ll be connected. Be warned, however. Once paired, all your sounds will go through the phones, and unless you specifically set JAWS for another sound card, your speech will also go through the headphones, and you might think you lost speech.

 

Hope this helps.

It sounds like a good speaker.

Wonder if you can help as you are obviously used to pairing.

I belong to a Rock Chir which is currently having to meet via Zoom. So everyone doesn’t hear Jaws nattering on, I am using headphones, but doing so is quite restrictive as some of the songs have moves.

Blue tooth headphones would obviously be the answer and I do have some which I use with my iPhone.

I’ve no idea how to pair them with a desktop computer however. Any clues on how to go about this please?

Hi all.

 

I’ve finally found a Bluetooth speaker that doesn’t suffer from the dreaded cutting off the start of speech with JAWS.  It’s the Tribit Soundmax Plus Bluetooth speaker. I might have that backwards, but if you look for it on Amazon, you’ll find it. It has 24 watts of sound, is stereo, and uses a micro USB cable for charging. The buttons have tactile markings, so it’s easy to figure out.  It claims to have 20 hours of battery life, and the advertising says it has a range of up to 100 feet. I just got it, so I can’t say much about how well it works yet. The thing that I’m very happy about is it doesn’t chop off the beginning of JAWS when it starts. I think it’s mainly made for devices like smart phones, but it paired with my Windows 10 laptop with no problem. Oh yeah, it’s waterproof, so some rain won’t hurt it.

 

I ordered it from Amazon, and with Prime it costs around $60, taxes included.

 

That’s all from me. Right now it’s charging, but I used it plugged in with no problem, but I don’t know what that would mean for the battery. Tonight I’m going to start music on this laptop, and instead of moving the computer to my bedroom, the new speaker will be used, and it will be really nice to have a lower volume than what the lower quality internal speakers produce. I know, I could just lower their volume in sound settings, but what can I say, I’m lazy.

 

Just letting you know.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Hi,
There is also a way to change the setting so that instead of doing speech on demand when you press insert plus , then S. You have to go into the jaws settings and find speech options, and there is a setting there to be able to mute the speech for all apps when insert plus space is pressed.

On Nov 5, 2020, at 7:10 AM, Richard Turner <richardturner42@...> wrote:



I can answer the mute question.

Press insert+space, then s.

That puts it into Speech On Demand.  So, if you issue a reading command, it will read, otherwise it will stay silent.

That is a toggle, so do insert+space and then s again to go back to full speech.

 

I believe there are focus commands to navigate the computer, but you would need to get the Jaws documentation on using the Focus, and I do not know if that is in BRF anywhere.

You may want to call them.

 I recently purchased my first windows pc for over ten years and have jaws 2020. I also have a Focus braille display. 

 

 First of all, is there a way of navigating the screen using the focus display? Switching between display and keyboard is quite annoying, or perhaps I just need to get used to it. Also, how do I mute the speech and then unmute it again when necessary. 

 

Lastly, is there a document, or book [in brf or word] with help on how to use jaws? I don't do well with audio and prefer a written reference if possible.

Hi again, Stephanie. One thing you might consider is this, you can customize Windows so that it doesn't load some programs that you know you won't use when Windows starts. You can change this behavior in the following way,

 

1. Go to Settings by using Windows key plus I.

2. Right Arrow to Apps & features, and press ENTER.

3. TAB once, then Arrow down to Startup, and press ENTER.

4. Here you can choose which programs load when Windows starts. Some programs such as some of the games, I tell Windows to not load when Windows starts.

 

You can also choose which apps to allow to run in the background.

 

1. Go to Settings with Windows key plus I.

2. TAB once, Arrow down to Privacy and press ENTER.

3.  Arrow down to Background Apps and press ENTER.

4. Choose which apps you want to allow to run in the background.

 

Some of the apps I have chosen to not allow to run in the background are,

 

3D Builder ‑

3D Viewer ‑

Candy Crush Soda Saga ‑

Groove Music ‑

Microsoft Solitaire Collection  

Minecraft  

Paradise Bay  

 

Depending upon your personal interests, you may choose to allow some of these programs to run in the background, and you might wish to disable others. These are only my personal preferences.

One can also greatly reduce the incidence of notifications, period, by disallowing them for any apps where you don't consider getting them in a really timely manner to be important.

Settings, System, Notifications & Actions Pane.  Navigate down to the list under Get Notifications from these senders and toggle off every single one of them where you do not need or want a notification "in real time".  Almost everything defaults to ON initially, so if you've never visited this list in the past you'll likely be toggling a very great many things OFF.

Subject: Notification hell!

Hi all. Using JAWS 2021 beta 3 and the latest 20H Windows 10 build, I'm trapped in notification hell. I don't mind hearing notifications arrive while I'm working on other things. But these notifications are taking over my window focus such that my only recourse is to alt+tab away from, then back to, the application where I'm working. When the notifications appear, they can't be dismissed or deleted. Only moving them to the action center seems to get rid of them.
I don't have focus assist turned on because I worry I won't hear notifications, which I still want. I just don't want them hogging my entire focus and hemming me in.
By the way, this happens with Narrator and NVDA as well. It has also persisted through numerous clean Windows reinstallations and the past few insider previews. The notifications appear and cannot be dismissed or deleted. They only disappear by alt+tabbing. The action center doesn't seem to be the culprit. When I open it, I can tab to the notification list, delete or dismiss individual notifications or groups of notifications from specific applications. The only thing I cannot do consistently from within the action center is activate notifications. Space or enter only work sometimes; it might be one or the other, but more often, neither.
Since I know how to choose my battles, I'm willing to defer solving my notification activation problem if I could just get get these notifications to be voiced in the background without stealing focus.
Is Focus Assist appropriate for this?

Hello,
For documentation, the information in the FS Reader is quite helpful, these are daisy books with both text an speech, so you can review them either way. 
Yes, you can use any command using just a perkins keyboard, and I believe there are several additional functions keys on the Focus that can make it even easier.
Space with dot 8 and a set of other keys act like a prefix to the following keystroke.
Dot1: WIndows Key
dot2: Option Key
Dot 3: Control key
dot 4: FN (as in F4)
Dot 5: JAWS key 

So if you type space with dots 4 and 5 followed by “D (THe letter, Mac is saying I put 500 there) ” JAWs will act as if you pressed jaws key and F4, and will exit.
For having JAWS only occasionally speak, you want to turn on Speech on demand. You should be able to find this in the JAWS setting center.
To open JAWS Setting center, press the JAWS key and the number 6.
THen move to the default configuration, with control-shift-D. 
 You should be on a search field at this point, go ahead and search for smart and then change as you see fit.


HTH!
