Sharon, I have a note that since JAWS 2018, there is no longer any need to install the plug-in.

Where do you get the plug in?

Is there a way to search a 1500 page book reliably? Using Jaws?

              Greetings,

 

I was gifted an eBook that someone really wants me to read. It’s an Amazon Kindle book. I seem to remember JAWS not doing well with such books a while back, but I don’t know if it has improved. What about on the iPhone? Is that any better?

If anyone has any advice on how to best read this eBook, please share your ideas.

Thanks much.

Hi Jim,

The Kindle app on the iPhone works great with voiceover. I’ve never tried to read kindle books with jaws.

Hope this helps,

I still use calibre to convert kindle books to plain text (note this
requires that you keep kindle stunted at a fairly old version as
recent ones have DRM that calibre can't deal with).

Hi, Adrian. You won't get any verbalization from JAWS. What CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B does is, if you SHIFT plus TAB once, you will see that it adds a Hidden Favorites button to the tool bar. If you press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B again, it removes this button from the tool bar. The way to get to this tool bar is:

1. Open Edge to your Start Page.
2. Go to the top of the page.
3. Press SHIFT plus TAB.
4. If the Hidden Favorites toggle is on, there will be a Hidden Favorites button just before you SHIFT plus TAB to the Settings button.
5. If the Hidden Favorites toggle is off, all you will see when you SHIFT plus TAB is the Settings button.

When the favorites bar is turned on, you can go to the favorites bar and access your favorites from there.

YYou can press alt-shift-b to set ffocus in the favorites bar if it is visable. If this does not work, press ctrl-shift-b again.

You can also go to this bar by pressing f6, but how many times f6 can

moderated Re: when hopefully JAWS2021 official release will be available

There are 3 improvements that I remember off the top of my head that I’m excited about in Jaws 2021.

 

  1. Improvement of auto reading of messages in outlook when they are opened.
  2. Improvements with Microsoft teams. Because my company uses it a lot especially since the majority of us are work from home these days.
  3. The ability to pull up a history of your windows notifications and deal with them.

Those are my top hitters.  The voice control input is kind of a cool idea, however, it seems a little slow to me in the demos I’ve heard.  So the jury for me is out on that item til more power is added and the time delay is shortened.

 

Have a good day everyone.

To my knowledge, JAWS does not make any changes to File Explorer.

So, what information are you missing? Are you wanting to view “details”? With extensions on, or off? Those kinds of things are decided by the user. I believe extensionsa re hidden by default – a setting I’m certainly quick to change.

Justin,

 

After you enter the group name you should be presented with your list of contacts so you can highlight the ones you want in the group. The e-mail addresses must be in your contact list before you can create a group.

Subject: Creating a group in outlook

 

Hello Group,

Up until recently, I had no real reason to create groups from my Contacts using Outlook. However, at this point, I’m involved with a number of activities within my community where this feature is something that would be convenient as a contact option.

I had spoken with Bill White about this and rather to use the ribbon commands, he suggested using Control/Shift/L where I create a group name. After identifying a group name, I tabbed one time  to the Members Table field, arrowing down to identify contacts to fill the group. At this point, I received a message that “Members list table is unavailable.”

Am I on the right track, or it there another way to build  a group?

 

Best, Justin
