moderated Windows 10 October Update May Not Work With JAWS 2019

For those of you who are using JAWS 2019 and plan to install the Windows 10 October update, the following message, posted by someone on another list, may
be of interest.  Note that this message is based solely on the personal experience of its author, Rob Kaiser.  I'm just the messenger: 

[GUI-Talk] problem with JAWS 2019 & the latest version of windows
I just got off of the phone with the Microsoft Help Desk regarding an issue.
While she was fixing my problem, she informed me that the October version of
Windows 10 doesn't work with JAWS 2019. Again, Microsoft went plowing ahead
without checking with the blind.

Greg,

 

The lost focus setting determines whether JAWS announces that focus has been lost. It doesn’t fix the problem.

Mike,

 

I vaguely remember some unnamed keystroke that one could use if Jaws has lost focus; that keystroke rotored through various settings.

 

As the result of another reply, I have tried using Firefox, but unless I can modify settings, Firefox was painfully slow in responding.  I haven’t tried Edge yet, and Chrome is the browser which is having difficulties with the website.

Hi everyone,

 

I have a website-based question; I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 2020.

 

I am the primary admin for a Eucharistic adoration ministry in my parish, and that ministry uses a web-based application called We Adore Him to control adorer scheduling.  I have successfully used the software since August 2018 and, after being shut down by COVID-19 since mid-March, we are preparing to open the chapel again.  As a result, I have been assisting adorers to choose an hour in the weekly calendar.  All went well until Wednesday, October 21, when the weekly calendar suddenly would not display when I arrowed to it; it now displays the hour at midnight, tells me that one slot is available, and when I arrow down in order to go to a particular hour of the day, I am at the bottom of the screen.

 

I am using the Jaws cursor which appears for all websites, and I have checked to be sure that my screen is maximized and in full-screen mode in Chrome.  A sighted tech-savvy friend has assisted me via Zoom and screen-share, and she tells me that the full schedule, showing adorers signed up for this or that hour--is showing on the screen.  I have contacted On Fire Media to ask them if they have been testing and that might be the reason for my issue, but they have not.  They are aware of Jaws and have a demo copy to use.  I can navigate the screen in My Dashboard if I want to update the settings in my account, but whenever I choose "Schedule", choose the particular week, I only see the first entry.

 

I honestly don't know if this is a Jaws focus issue or something entirely different.  Can you please remind me of the keystrokes for the rotor which a user can look at in the case of a focus issue?  Or, alternatively, do you have other suggestions?

 

I have tried everything I can think of.

 

Thank you for any ideas or suggestions,

Hello Bonnie,

 

First thing I would try is to turn off the jaws cursor with insert + z.

Second option I would test is see if the .pdf can be opened in MS Word, make the changes and then save as .pdf. 

 

I think the latest and greatest versions of Word support .pdf out of the box.  If I am wrong, certain someone on this list will correct me.

 

 

Thanks, Abraham

Hello group,

I am using fusion 2020. I have a PDF I need to fill out for work. There is a fill and sign button on the right, and that allowed me to put a cursor in the fields on the PDF. I can tell that because I use the magnification part effusion. However, jaws will not allow me to fill anything out. Any idea of how I can go about filling out this form?

 

Thanks very much,

moderated Any JAWS 2020 Scripts for Thunderbird 78.4?

Kenneth Washington <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

    Hello,


I'm curious if there are any JAWS scripts available for the latest build of Thunderbird mail client (V78.4?)


I just want a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow) for reading the message window pain, as I'm arrowing down the list of email subjects.


Opening each individual message just to have JAWS read the contents seems somewhat tedious. Being able to read the review message window pain beforehand allows you to know what the contents is before opening the email.


Are there any such scripts available to do this in JAWS20? If not, can someone point me to an JAWS script development resource, so I can learn to create one myself?


Thanks for any help.

Hi Greg,
I think a less confusing word to use in place of, Rotor, would be,
Toggle.  There are several keystrokes that toggle through settings, but
a focus toggling keystroke just isn't coming to mind at the moment.
Hopefully someone will come through with it.

Hi all,

Thanks so much for your comments, this has now been resolved.

My employer have their own software centre, it's basically an app store of apps that have been tested and approved for employees to use as many who work in corporate environments probably know. I had downloaded PT from our software centre and that is the version I was trying to use, however that is packaged as a virtualised app. I strongly suspect this is why JAWS could not interact with it.

I have now downloaded the official build from Cisco on the same system and it is now working great.

Hi Greg,

 

You might try JAWS’s touch cursor, which you access by pressing the shift and PC cursor keys together. Exit touch cursor mode with two presses of that PC cursor key. I rarely find it useful, but sometimes it helps. Use the tab and arrow keys to navigate.

 

As Mike B indicates, your reference to “rotor” is confusing, since it calls to mind the iPhone. You also seem to suggest you navigate with the JAWS cursor. I assume you also use the PC cursor, which I’d expect to be more useful for this purpose.

I am the primary admin for a Eucharistic adoration ministry in my parish, and that ministry uses a web-based application called We Adore Him to control adorer scheduling.  I have successfully used the software since August 2018 and, after being shut down by COVID-19 since mid-March, we are preparing to open the chapel again.  As a result, I have been assisting adorers to choose an hour in the weekly calendar.  All went well until Wednesday, October 21, when the weekly calendar suddenly would not display when I arrowed to it; it now displays the hour at midnight, tells me that one slot is available, and when I arrow down in order to go to a particular hour of the day, I am at the bottom of the screen.

 

I am using the Jaws cursor which appears for all websites, and I have checked to be sure that my screen is maximized and in full-screen mode in Chrome.  A sighted tech-savvy friend has assisted me via Zoom and screen-share, and she tells me that the full schedule, showing adorers signed up for this or that hour--is showing on the screen.  I have contacted On Fire Media to ask them if they have been testing and that might be the reason for my issue, but they have not.  They are aware of Jaws and have a demo copy to use.  I can navigate the screen in My Dashboard if I want to update the settings in my account, but whenever I choose "Schedule", choose the particular week, I only see the first entry.

 

I honestly don't know if this is a Jaws focus issue or something entirely different.  Can you please remind me of the keystrokes for the rotor which a user can look at in the case of a focus issue?  Or, alternatively, do you have other suggestions?

 

I have tried everything I can think of.

 

Thank you for any ideas or suggestions,

read labeled graphics?  How do you set JAWS to do that?

I clicked on one, and it was the search button. I typed in something, and the search results were all unlabeled.

I use Grover. It’s accessible. I can search for, find, subscribe, unsubscribe, fast forward, rewind, and of course play and pause podcasts.

It’s available in the Microsoft store.

When my speakers blew on my laptop.  I looked into getting a Blue Tooth speaker.  The salesman talked me out of it stating, “Every time you start or restart the laptop you have to pair the speaker with the laptop all over again.  It should automatically pair, but it doesn’t.” I do have blue tooth headphones paired with my iPhone and loved the fact that when it was warmer and we could water the grass, I could leave my iPhone in the lawn chair and, while still chatting with someone, could move the hose with no dropped call.

Hi,

  It is harder to connect some blue tooth headphones with laptops than a phone.

Try having your laptop search for devices under the blue tooth setting.

Sometimes the headphones are discovered under a weird name.

You may need to try the search a couple of times .

Try turning off and then on the blue tooth settings on your laptop to see if this initiates a new search.

I have also found that Bluetooth headphones, depending on brand, are not as reliable as with  a phone.

Hi,

I’ve used Bluetooth earphones with my iPhone, but not with a laptop  the headphone jack on my work laptop seems to be not working. I’m not finding any plug in earbuds or headphoens in my house that will work so I can hear JAWS.  I thought I could try pairing the earpiece I use with my iPhone. I turned off the Bluetooth connection on my iPhone and turned on Bleutooth in the laptop; however, I don’t see the earpiece showing up in the list, even though my earpiece is in pairing mode.    Am I going about this the correct way?  Should a basic, Bluetooth earpiece that works with an iPhone also work with a laptop or is there a difference?  I think this is a Plantronics earpiece, but I’m not positive.  It’s possible my company has some security restriction on Bluetooth, but I dread calling our helpdesk to ask.

Considering that the accessibility of the next door app changed with the latest update. I feel certain in assuming that this is possible with the website as well. The next door app is updated weekly or bi-weekly. So hopefully, accessibility for the website & the app will be fixed soon. i've been using the next door app for 2 years. There has been only 3 times, in which accessibility was slightly broken.

I just tried it after signing up.

I was able to hear the subject field and the message field after hitting the compose button in the messages list with both Jaws 2020 and Jaws 2021 beta.

I’m using the new Chromium Edge.

Maybe try that and see if it works better.

Subject: Access to the NextDoorsite

 

Hello Group,

 

For a number of years, I have been a member of the Nextdoor.com neighborhood site, specific to my immediate neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods.

Until recently, I have been able to post messages to the site which I attempted to do e arlier this morning. However, as soon as I opened the message link, and tabbed to the subject field, Jaws stopped speaking. Nonetheless, I tabbed to the message body field and began composing a message. Again, JAWS was silent, so I could not read the content of what I was writing.

I have been using Google Chrome for a couple of months. Could this be a Google issue, or do I need to do a JAWS repair, try a different browser or is Nextdoor no longer accessible as it has been, necessitating bringing this to their attention.  

I would guess that some of the US members have and do use this site.

Any help is appreciated.

 

Peace to all,  Justin
