Rick-

I have had this problem too but found that if I down arrow to what I think is correct and then tab to the next combo box or field, shift tab back to the first one, it will then read where I am in that combo box. For instance, if I am trying to enter expiration date of march 2021, in the first combo box, I would down arrow 3 times, tab and then shift tab.  JAWS will then read the month so I know if I got it right.  I do the same for choosing a state from a combo box, hitting M for Massachusetts, arrowing down a few times and then checking it by leaving that combo box and shift tabbing back to it to see if I got it right and arrowing up or down  if I didn’t (and then checking it again by tabbing and shift tabbing back).  

 

It is definitely annoying and tedious but it has worked for me a bunch of times.

I recently experienced this same problem.  I tried JAWS 2020, 2019, and 17, and then NVDA, nothing would read the contents of the boxes, even though a remote session showed them that I was inside the boxes and was cycling through the choices, but no speech. 

 

Those combo boxes are somehow coded so that JAWS cannot read the contents.  The company responded back to my complaint, and found they need to involve the vendor who processes the payments; the vendor’s web page is the culprit.  Sorry I cannot offer a solution, but I just wanted to wade in to confirm this exact scenario happened to me.

Hi Rick,

 

While in forms mode try tabbing instead of arrowing to the comboboxes.  Tabbing might open the comboboxes, then arrow to your choice, tab to the next combobox, and arrow to your choice.

 

If the above doesn't work close forms mode after entering your CC#, arrow or tab to a combobox and press, Alt + downarrow, to open, arrow to your choice, then press, Alt + up arrow to close the combobox.  You can usually open forms mode on an edit field by pressing enter and closing it with the PC cursor key.

Dear Listers:

 

What do you do when you come to a form you have to fill out and, although Forms Mode is on, JAWS will not work?

 

I am using the latest JAWS 2020 update and am using Windows 10.  I just tried to order a copy of a baseball broadcast from the Miley Collection.  I got to the order, added it to my cart, found the cart and went to the checkout page.  While I was checking out I was entering my credit card information.  I entered the card number successfully, and then came to the combo boxes where you had to fill out the month and year of expiration.  For the month, Forms Mode came on and JAWS said to select the month using the arrow keys, but when I arrowed up and down, JAWS did not speak the month.  The same was true with the year.  I even went back to the month, tried arrowing down the number of months to the expiration month and hit the Enter key, but nothing happened.  The same was true with the year.  The expiration is five years from now.  I got down to the “Year,” form, and when Forms Mode came on I arrowed down five times and hit the Enter key, but nothing happened.  In the end, I had to place the order by telephone.  This is not the first time I have run across this type of problem with JAWS, and I’m just wondering what any of you do when you come across it.

Rick, does Jaws read the combo boxes as you just arrow over them?
You could try going to the combo box, entering forms mode, typing the first letters of the month you want, then exiting forms mode.  Then arrow to combo box to see if it will read the month that you have selected to see if it is correct.

Have no idea if it will work, but maybe worth a try.

One choice for addressing this is to use the free Aira offer from Vispero for those times when JAWS does not work. The agent can remote into your system using Team Viewer and click or direct as needed.  You don’t need to be an Aira subscriber at all to do this.

Hi

When you receive notification that JAWS updates are available, those updates
only apply to the current JAWS version. If you are not running the current
version of JAWS, nothing will happen.

So for the JAWS updates that can be downloaded from the current
notification, the only ones that can use it are those currently running JAWS
2020.

So anyone who is not currently running JAWS 2020 will just receive a message
saying their system is up to date, when it's not.

if you download the updates from the JAWS update notification message, your
update will only have the stuff needed to install the update .However, if
you use the link provided by Mike B to download the update you will have a
full installation package that can be installed over the current JAWS, or
wherever you like.

Also, all current and many older versions of JAWS can be downloaded from the
Freedom Scientific web site.

No, it does not use TWAIN drivers.

However, I personally find the reliability, speed and ease of use of this scanner so compelling and if I need to perform OCR it is not much of an inconvenience in my opinion to simply scan the document and, once saved as a PDF, to run Convenient OCR on the file. After all, I want to save this as a PDF image anyways.

If all you have to do is scan documents I would recommend a good document scanner and by that I mean something like a Fujitsu Scansnap and not a flat bed scanner. We use Scansnaps at my store where we scan all documents like invoices, statements and such. Being used to using HP Flatbed scanners I initially bought an at the time quite expensive HP Scanjet 8350 which had a legal size flatbed as well as a $500 document feeder and while it worked OK for a few years, eventually the document feeder wasn’t working any more and I replaced it with a Fujitsu Scansnap IX500. That was I think about 8 or 9 years ago and that scanner has been performing flawlessly since and for straight document scanning it’s incredible fast and efficient. You stick in say 8 or 10 ages of doble sided paper and it pulls the pages through taking maybe 3 seconds a page and both sides are scanned, 20 or 30 seconds later the scan is done, a screen pops up asking me what to do with the scan with options to print it, email it or save it to a file. The save option brings up a fairly standard save as dialogue, whatever folder you pick stays picked so if you use the same folder all you have to do is name the file and press Save and your scan is saved as a PDF file. Just one piece of advice, buy the older IX500 and not the newer one, can’t remember the model now, but I bought one of them as well so I could use the older one in my office where we don’t do as much scanning and my staff is using the newer one and its software is not very accessible and lacks the simple efficiency of that for the older scanner which Fujitsu still sells.

Sieghard

HEllo Group,

I am doing some volunteer work with English language learners here in the Twin Cities, to keep busy and find purpose now that I am retired.

There is some opportunity to do some additional work at the International Institute relative to some of their other programs. Specifically assistance is needed to help gather data from Institute graduates and other persons interested in participating in Instituteprograms.

I would be gathering data over the telephone and entering it into a database which is doable. I would be using JAWS for this.

Secondly, I would be scanning in specific documents. It has been a long time since I have done any scanning, an activity that I did perform at a job that I had 20 or so years ago. Besides using JAWS for this task, what else do I need in terms of other special technology?

Any and all assistance is appreciated.

 

Best, Justin

Being used to using HP Flatbed scanners I initially bought an at the time quite expensive HP Scanjet 8350 which had a legal size flatbed as well as a $500 document feeder and while it worked OK for a few years, eventually the document feeder wasn’t working any more and I replaced it with a Fujitsu Scansnap IX500. That was I think about 8 or 9 years ago and that scanner has been performing flawlessly since and for straight document scanning it’s incredible fast and efficient. You stick in say 8 or 10 ages of doble sided paper and it pulls the pages through taking maybe 3 seconds a page and both sides are scanned, 20 or 30 seconds later the scan is done, a screen pops up asking me what to do with the scan with options to print it, email it or save it to a file. The save option brings up a fairly standard save as dialogue, whatever folder you pick stays picked so if you use the same folder all you have to do is name the file and press Save and your scan is saved as a PDF file. Just one piece of advice, buy the older IX500 and not the newer one, can’t remember the model now, but I bought one of them as well so I could use the older one in my office where we don’t do as much scanning and my staff is using the newer one and its software is not very accessible and lacks the simple efficiency of that for the older scanner which Fujitsu still sells.

HEllo Group,

I am doing some volunteer work with English language learners here in the Twin Cities, to keep busy and find purpose now that I am retired.

There is some opportunity to do some additional work at the International Institute relative to some of their other programs. Specifically assistance is needed to help gather data from Institute graduates and other persons interested in participating in Instituteprograms.

I would be gathering data over the telephone and entering it into a database which is doable. I would be using JAWS for this.

Secondly, I would be scanning in specific documents. It has been a long time since I have done any scanning, an activity that I did perform at a job that I had 20 or so years ago. Besides using JAWS for this task, what else do I need in terms of other special technology?

Any and all assistance is appreciated.

 

Best, Justin

See:  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/organize-your-messages-using-filters

Filters have commonly been put in place for the From: field and using the "contains" option, which does not require the entire e-mail address.

If you are using IMAP access I'd suggest you find out how to add filters on the server side rather than in your e-mail client.  Then they are "one and done" and you can change e-mail clients at will, or use multiple devices to access your e-mail, and all will have had the same filtering applied by the server before you ever see your messages.

Hi robin,

 

This is really helpful information. I am going to find the webinar and learn how to do this because I know it will make working with some of these spreadsheets a lot easier.

 

Thanks again,

Norma

I learned another related approach on a JAWS webinar.  I think it was to “define name” of  a cell, then you can go directly to it with Control G.  I set this up for a large spreadsheet where I needed to quickly jump to a particular column.

There is a way to protect cells. What that will do, is only allow you to go from one input cell to another. I will have to brush up on how to do it and get back to you. However, a Google search for protecting cells would lead you in the right direction. I hope this helps you.

Hi guys,

Let me clarify my initial post: I am able to edit the spreadsheet, no problems there. MS calls it a template, but it has a spreadsheet extension, XLS. Kinda confusing.

Here’s my question:

If I insert text into A3, isn’t there a keystroke to jump to the next cell that needs to be filled in? Something similar to tabbing to the next edit box in an online form?

I can edit and add and remove cell titles, etc. as I see fit. After that, I have the order form for my business. When it’s time for me to take the customer’s information and fill out the order form, how do I move through the form fields?

If this is still confusing, I’m ok with that. I’m probably using the incorrect verbiage to make my explanation clear. I have other options by which to save the information. Using a “template” seemed easy. Not so much, but I’m learning. <smile> Thanks, Norma

Norma,  Since your invoice is a template, try Save As and save it as an Excel document,rename it then you should be able to fill it in.  The template file is probably protected.

Greetings,

 

I’m using Jaws 2020 with Office 365. I downloaded an invoice template, but I can’t figure out how to complete the form. I think I should be able to enter data in the first field then go directly to the next field, enter data, and so on. Right now tabbing gets me to every cell, most of which are blank. I guess what I need is how to go into forms mode in Excel. I’m sure my answer is out there somewhere, so thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Norma
