Hi All,

 

If by chance the integrity of the three documents must be kept, it would be easier to put them all into one folder and send the folder. Forgive me if I am missing the jiss of the question.

David & Sieghard,

          A bit of information that should help both of you, and the group as a whole.

          David's last message was not blank, but certainly appeared to be, even on the web interface.   This is because he bottom posted the following:  "Hi, how are you? to answer both of your questions one these are all text documents, and they are related because they all come from a place that I've been accepted to persue an online music production degree. Hope that this will answer the question. I need to send these items so that I can meet a requirement."

           If you bottom post material after the entire quoted content of a prior message, most e-mail clients and the Groups.io web interface do not know that the quoted material has ended and the new material begun, and it gets subsumed within the most-often-hidden quoted material.   Even if it didn't, someone would still have to go all the way to the bottom to find the new content, and for a simple response such as this one that's very unlikely to happen.  I only found it because I decided to expand the quoted material and accidentally found it there.

            Unless you (any you) are doing a reply where it's necessary to intersperse your new material within the old to retain context, it's always better to either add it to the top of the message, leaving the quoted material afterward, or eliminate the quoted material via select all and delete before adding your new stuff.  That way it doesn't have any chance of going missing in action like happened here.

Dean,

         You are also correct, and I thought I recalled something vaguely about key map files, but wasn't sure.  Based on your message I found:

I just don't do custom scripting or key management on a typical basis, so this sort of stuff is in "the dusty part of the memory attic."

What would happen if you go into Setting Center while in QWS, thereby either accessing an existing configuration or creating a new one. Actually, This step may or may not be necessary, because the goal is to create a new .jkm file for qws. There, the goal is to give ctrl+left and ctrl+right new assignments or no assignment. You want to remove the key assignment for SayNextWord and SayPreviousWord. In a qws.jkm file, even if you copied default.jkm into it to create it, you could unassign those keystrokes and this should work.

As to whether there exist scripts for QWS that would include specific pass-through for specific keystrokes I do not know.

There also appears to be a dedicated e-mailing list for QWS:  http://andrelouis.com:414/mlss?MListname=qws
And now that I've just looked at the main page it appears that's precisely where you picked up the original source questions.

Hi All,

 

I’ve just subscribed to this list, so Hello! And apologies if this has already been covered, or if my question demonstrates a lamentable lack of knowledge of the subject:

 

I’m working through the tutorials for QWS.  I noticed that some of the keystrokes described, don’t work as expected, specifically the control-left-arrow and control-Right-arrow keys.  I assume that this is because JAWS is grabbing the keystroke.  I can pass through keys on an individual basis, but can’t remember how you define a keystroke that should always be passed through within a particular application.  I can’t find any config files on the web, specifically for JAWS and QWS, but would be interested:

  1. If anyone already has QWS configuration files, or
  2. If someone can remind me how, on a more generalised basis, you prevent JAWS from grabbing a specific keystroke.

Regards and thanks,

Hi All,
 
Below is the download link for the J2020.1909.79 Beta 2 release.  I'm posting only what's new for J2020 because there's nothing that I could find for what's new in this specific release only.  Also the direct link to the Beta report form is below the download link.

What's new for J2020:
 
New Features Added in JAWS 2020
 
The following features are new to JAWS 2020.
 
Reduced Double Speaking of Form Control Prompts
 
When navigating and filling out forms on the web, it has become increasingly common for web page authors to include the prompt inside the control in addition
to assigning an accessible Tag for the control. While non-screen reader users only see the written prompt, those using a screen reader are getting both
the Prompt and accessible Tag in Speech as well as Braille if a display is in use. Often times, the web page author has assigned the same text for each,
so it appears the screen reader is double speaking. In JAWS 2020, we have greatly reduced the amount of double speaking of form controls as you navigate
using speech and Braille by comparing the prompt and these tags, and only speaking or brailling them both if they are different.
 
Note: For Public Beta 1, only the double speaking of prompts has been completed. The Braille representation will be corrected for Public Beta 2 in early
October.
 
Zoom Meeting Scripts Added for an Improved Experience
 
Thanks to Hartgen Consulting, basic scripts for Zoom are now included directly in JAWS and Fusion to improve the experience when attending Zoom Meetings.
This platform is used for our quarterly FS Open Line program as well as the free training webinars we hold each month. These scripts offer a more pleasant
experience by giving more control over what you hear, without interrupting the flow as users enter or leave the room or make comments. Press INSERT+H to
view a list of JAWS keystrokes available in Zoom such as turning off alerts, speaking recent chat messages, and more. You can also press INSERT+W to view
a list of Zoom hot keys.
 
Hartgen    Consultancy
 also offers more advanced scripts for Zoom Pro if you are interested.
 
Enhanced JAWS and Invisible Cursor Support for Windows 10 Universal Apps
 
For years, JAWS users have relied on the JAWS cursor (NUM PAD MINUS) and Invisible cursor (NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly) to review and interact with areas
in an application where the PC cursor cannot go. This includes reading textual information which is on-screen but not focusable, and interacting with controls
which are only accessible using a mouse as the mouse pointer will follow the JAWS cursor and NUM PAD SLASH and NUM PAD STAR will perform a left and right
click. However, the Off-Screen Model (OSM) which has traditionally been used to support the JAWS and Invisible cursors is becoming less and less available
as newer technology such as UIA, found especially in Windows universal apps like the calculator or the Windows Store, is now being used exclusively for
accessing screen content. This results in the JAWS and Invisible cursors becoming unusable when attempting to navigate in those windows. All you would
hear in those cases was "blank" as you reviewed the screen. This is because the modern technology currently in use is not able to be captured by the traditional
Off-Screen Model. In those cases, the only solution was using the Touch Cursor, something most users are not as familiar with.
 
JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS Scan cursor in these situations.
You will use all of the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS cursor or the Invisible cursors.
 
For example, if you open the Calculator or Windows Store in JAWS 2020 and press NUM PAD MINUS, you will now hear JAWS announce "JAWS Scan Cursor" as these
are apps that do not support the OSM. You can then use the ARROW keys like you always have done to move by character, word, line, as well as INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line, or PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, HOME, and END. The mouse pointer will also continue to follow as it always has. The only difference
is that the cursor does not move from top to bottom or left to right. Instead, it moves by element the way the developer laid out the app.
 
While this works in many places, there are still some areas where more work by Freedom Scientific is required. For instance, if you use Office 365, and
try to read your Account version information with the JAWS cursor commands, it is still not possible to navigate and read in these places. That work is
underway and we plan to have an update for this area in the 2020 version soon. Stay tuned.
 
Convenient OCR Updated to Use the Latest OmniPage
 
The recognition engine used by the JAWS Convenient OCR feature has been updated to Kofax OmniPage 20, formerly owned by Nuance. This offers greater accuracy
when recognizing the text from on-screen images as well as text from images captured with a PEARL camera or scanner.
 
For users needing to OCR using Hebrew or Arabic, these languages will be included in later public beta builds or by the final release at the latest. Once
these languages are working, they will be installed with any English or Western European download of JAWS and Fusion.
 
Virtual Cursor Toggle Now Tab Specific in Google Chrome
 
Today, there are many web apps where using the Virtual Cursor is not the best approach. An example of this can be seen if you use Gmail in the Chrome Browser.
In these cases, it makes sense to toggle the Virtual Cursor off by pressing INSERT+Z and then use this application with the PC cursor. Many users also
regularly open multiple tabs (CTRL+T) so they can easily access different sites such as GMail plus one or two other pages by moving between the open tabs
using CTRL+TAB. This can become frustrating as you need to constantly press INSERT+Z to get the right cursor in use as you switch between tabs.
 
Beginning with version 2020, we are introducing an option to help JAWS automatically remember the state of the Virtual Cursor for each tab once you set
it. It will also announce whether the Virtual Cursor is on or off as you move between various tabs. Once you close the browser, or restart JAWS, it will
default back to its default behavior so you will need to set this each day as you use it.
 
For the Public Beta, this feature is not turned on by default. It will be enabled by default In later Beta builds. If you would like to try it out in the
first Beta, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 to open Settings Center.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
3. Type "Tab" in the search field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW until you locate "Virtual Cursor On/Off based on Browser Tabs."
5. Press the SPACEBAR to enable the option and then select OK.
list end
 
Note: If you choose to enable this feature in public beta 1, you will hear the announcement of the Virtual Cursor state in certain situations as you navigate.
This will be corrected in subsequent builds.
 
Contracted Braille Input Enhancements
 
For ElBraille users as well as those who regularly use a Braille display with their PC, JAWS 2020 offers significant improvements when typing in contracted
Braille. In particular:
 
list of 5 items
• You should now be able to enter and edit text in numbered and bulleted lists in Word, WordPad, Outlook, and Windows Mail.
• Contracted Braille input is now supported in more applications including PowerPoint and TextPad.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in WordPad, especially when editing a numbered or bulleted list created in Word and opened in Wordpad. This includes
properly handling wrapped items which previously showed the number or bullet on subsequent wrapped lines, rather than indenting the text.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in Chrome, Google docs, and other online editors which can create bulleted and numbered lists.
• Typing rapidly using Contracted Braille in Microsoft Office as well as other applications should no longer result in text becoming scrambled.
list end
 
General Changes in Response to Customer Requests
list of 6 items
• While browsing the internet, JAWS will no longer announce "Clickable" by default as you move to various content.
• You should no longer hear the message "Press JAWS Key+ALT+R to hear descriptive text" as you navigate form controls and certain other elements on the
web.
• By default in Word and Outlook, JAWS will no longer announce "Alt SHIFT F10 to adjust Auto Correction" when you move to something that was auto corrected
previously.
• JAWS and Fusion will no longer gather a count of all the objects, misspellings, grammatical errors, and so on when a document is opened in Word. This
will enable documents to load much faster, including very large documents containing a lot of these items. You can always press INSERT+F1 for an overview
of what the document contains.
• Improved responsiveness when closing Word after saving a document.
• The AutoCorrect Detection option, previously only available in the Quick Settings for Word, can now also be changed in the Quick Settings for Outlook
(INSERT+V).
list end

I do this all of the time. With the document open and your focus on the page that you wish to print, hit CONTROL+P, Shift+Tab twice to get to Page Range, Down arrow to Current Page and hit Enter. This works in Word 2007. I don't know if it has been changed in newer versions.

I am surprised nobody asked here what type of documents they are. He mentioned sending them as text files, but if they are text files then he could simply open the first, go to the end, then open the second, do a select all and copy and paste the content into the first, then repeat with the third. You then save the first document either using the original name or give it a new one and you have one file containing all the information.

You could do the same with a Word document or an Excel sheet where you could put the information from each file on a separate worksheet in one document.

The only time when this won’t work is with PDF documents. If you want to combine several documents/files into one  you would need some sort of PDF editing software, I am not sure if Nuance Power PDF still exists or is still called this, but with it you can combine or split PDF documents.

Which is the conventional way, barring using a ZIP file, which makes more sense if you've got more than just a couple of files or at least one of the files is an executable, which are seldom accepted via e-mail anymore.

If a recipient does not know what to do with a ZIP file then they need to learn, as they've been in common use for decades, and often for occasions where a large cluster of files, sometimes including their folder structure, needs to be sent.

The only time when this won’t work is with PDF documents. If you want to combine several documents/files into one  you would need some sort of PDF editing software, I am not sure if Nuance Power PDF still exists or is still called this, but with it you can combine or split PDF documents.

Which is the conventional way, barring using a ZIP file, which makes more sense if you've got more than just a couple of files or at least one of the files is an executable, which are seldom accepted via e-mail anymore.

If a recipient does not know what to do with a ZIP file then they need to learn, as they've been in common use for decades, and often for occasions where a large cluster of files, sometimes including their folder structure, needs to be sent.

I am surprised nobody asked here what type of documents they are. He mentioned sending them as text files, but if they are text files then he could simply open the first, go to the end, then open the second, do a select all and copy and paste the content into the first, then repeat with the third. You then save the first document either using the original name or give it a new one and you have one file containing all the information.

your right. but they wanted to print like one page of an email message. most emails do not have page breaks and when you go to print them out you will find in the printer settings that it would show there is only one page. no matter how many lines of text there is.

If the document has three pages, control P for print then tab down to page range and put in the number of the page you want printed and tab to print...

i think you are out of luck.
unless the message has page breaks in there formatting the printer software will treat the whole message as one page.
about the only thing you might do is copy all of the message and paste it to your word processor or notepad and then delete what you don't want to print.

Hello list:

Most of the time, I only wish to print the first page of a document(usually an e-mail), but 2-3 pages print which is a waste of paper/toner. I can't remember the steps needed to direct the printer to print one page, and would appreaciate instructions.

Most sincerely,
