Try alt + J + enter. I regularly have to turn JAWS off and then back on while using the training version of Perky Duck, a software I use to produce my Literary Braille Transcriber Course lessons. So I know this works in that environment. It should work elsewhere too.

Hi, Madison. You might also want to edit your default configuration file for
JAWS so that it mutes speech instead of going into Speech On Demand. To do
this,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D for the Default Configuration.
3. In the search box, type,

speech options

4. Arrow down to Speech Options, and press ENTER.
5. Under Speech Mode Full Speech, leave this alone.
6. Under Less Speech Options Speech On Demand closed, press SPACE to toggle
to Mute Speech.
7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

Now, if you press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S, it will
mute speech.
Press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S again to return to full
speech.

Insert+ , then s is a toggle between speak on command or full speech.
While watching a video, use insert+space then s and jaws will be silent unless you press a reading command like insert+up arrow.
When the video is done, press insert+space then s again and Jaws will say full speech and you'll be back in business.

There was something odd going on with Jaws 2019 and 2020 on my system where none of the hotkeys on my desktop worked.
So far with Jaws 2021 they are working again.
Otherwise, the Windows+r then JawsXXXX where the x's are replaced with your jaws version works quite well.

moderated Re: Jaws command question

 

The short answer for the "why" of the shortcut not working is, "I have no idea."  The solution that often works to fix it, though, is either to edit the shortcut properties to remove the keyboard shortcut and re-add it afterward, or to nuke the desktop shortcut entirely, put a new one on the desktop, and reassign the shortcut you want to it.

As to turning off JAWS, what I'd suggest is that you don't.  You have the option to put JAWS to sleep, but it is still running, until you wake it back up, or to turn off speech from JAWS, but keep all other aspects running, until you turn speech back on.  But I'll be darned if I can find the commands for either in my own notes that I can dig up right now or in the Keystrokes document (and I would have sworn they were in that).

I think I've done both of these things with both JAWS and NVDA, but I could be getting confused, too.

I have heard that there are three ways you can get notifications—e-mail, Desktop and Alert. 
-
Rick,

            This is true, but Desktop Notification is one thing, and Alert, in practice, is set on the event itself and can be done via e-mail, or pop-up notification which is presented in the manner appropriate to the device on which it's being done.

            What you are encountering in the main Calendar settings is correct.  You choose one of three things:  Off, Desktop, or Alerts (and I'm not trying to split hairs here, but the choice for Alerts is plural).  My own Google Calendar main setting for notification is Alerts.

             The specific Alert or Alerts you actually get are not done at the Calendar level, but as part of creating or editing an Event.  When you create a New Event, only a few of the many fields/options are shown initially for both ease and speed, and these are:  Title, Date & Time, Add Guests, Add Google Meet Video Conferencing, Add Location, Add Description and attachments, and the actual calendar the event will be created in.  The last is only really relevant if you have access to more than one calendar, which I do, so I am not positive whether it will show to anyone who is using a single calendar.   After those things, at the end of the pop-up dialog for the Event, are two controls:  More Options and Save.   If you wish to add any one of the other possible features to an event, and this would include the sorts of notifications you want, you must activate More Options before these features become visible.

              Now, I will presume you have activated More Options on the Event.  If you set a default notification in Calendar Settings (and we can come back to that later if needed) you will see one notification already present with whatever you set up.  In my case the default notification is "Notification" (which is the pop-up I mentioned earlier) and 30 minutes ahead of the event, followed by an option to delete it.  Immediately following that, is the Add Notification, control, which allows you to add as many additional notifications, whether by Notification or Email, that you want.

               I'll now presume you've activated the Add Notification Control for the event. By the way, all of what follows is also part of that default notification I mentioned, as you can tweak your chosen default if you want or need to.  You are presented with three components:
1. A dropdown that lets you pick Notification or Email.
2. A combo box for a number of units before the event.  You can either type in the number or use the up/down arrows that are part of that control.
3. The "units" dropdown, where you pick minutes, hours, days, or weeks.

So if you want e-mail notifications, you do have to set them up in the event, not at the calendar level.  And since I've never used the Desktop option at the calendar level, I can't describe what happens if it's on.  I have always used Alerts and set up the alerts I need on a given event when I create it.

At one time the event-level notifications settings appeared without the use of the previously mentioned More Options control.  But that changed at least a year and a half to two years back, I can't remember exactly when.  And I still find that change mightily annoying.  I virtually never have need to deal with anything other than the event title, date & time, and calendar selection that's shown on the initial pop-up dialog.  I'd far rather have both the event-level notifications options and repeat options shown on the initial pop-up dialog, and would gladly ditch a couple of the other things like location, attachments/description, guests, and video conferencing options that currently do appear.

It is the Settings for notifications with Google calendar I am having trouble with.  I did not know there are settings for just a single event.  The problem I am having is this.  When I get into the Settings menu for Google Calendar I arrow down to where there are notifications.  I have heard that there are three ways you can get notifications—e-mail, Desktop and Alert.  When I get to where the notification settings are I hit the Enter key.  The option for Desktop notifications is there and the Option for Alerts is there, but when I arrow up above Desktop I have found that instead of giving an e-mail notification, JAWS is just saying the word “off.”  That puzzles me, and that is what I have been inquiring about.

Dear Brian:

 

On October 26th, you sent me a message  in reply to a message I sent to the group about the terrible time I am having trying to get JAWS to work with Google Calendar on my computer.  I replied to this message three days ago, but as of yet have not heard from you.  There is one thing, though, that you said in your message that I cannot figure out how to do.  You suggested that I use More Options in order to receive e-mail notifications.  In the settings menu I cannot find More Options, so how do you get it to work?

 

In the message I sent you on November 11, I answered the questions you had asked me when you were trying to give me advice about the use of Google Calendar.  The message is below, so now I hope that perhaps you might be able to help me, as nobody else has.

Dear Brian:

 

I am very comfortable with Outlook calendar—in fact, much more so than with Google Calendar.  The Google calendar I am using is my own, and I am trying to use it from the web.  Every time I open up my browser, which is Chrome, I hit Alt+L, and when the addressbar pops up I enter calendar.google.com and hit the Enter key, and the calendar comes up with no trouble.  I have learned how to create an event, but it is just the notifications I am concerned about.  When I get into the Settings menu and go down to where the notification settings are I hit the Enter key, and when the combo box comes up I see there are alert notifications and desktop notifications, but when I up-arrow from where it indicates there are desktop notifications instead of hearing the word “E-mail,” I hear the word “off.”  I don’t know why this is so, and when I try to turn notifications on nothing seems to be working, so I have for the moment just gone back to using Outlook calendar which I am more comfortable and familiar with.  If you can receive e-mail Google calendar notifications I do not know how to access them.  But in answer to your questions, I am very familiar with Outlook calendar and I am trying to use Google calendar from the web.  I am using the latest JAWS beta version and Windows 10.

Rick,

            I have several questions before I try to offer any guidance:

1.  Are you already familiar and comfortable with Outlook calendar?

2.  Is the Google Calendar you're trying to manage your own, or does it belong to someone else or another entity and you've been granted modification permissions?

3.  Am I safe in presuming, at least at the moment, that you are trying to use the Google Calendar web interface to create/edit events/appointments?

Google Calendar's own web interface has changed, not like last week recently, but within the last year, so that a minimal set of features for an event, not including notifications, is shown by default.  You must activate the More Options control in order to have the full complement of event options, including the Notifications controls, become visible.  There are only two Notification methods, email and notification.  Email is exactly what you'd think, an e-mail is sent to you to remind you at whatever interval prior to the event you set.  Notification will cause a pop-up on a desktop computer or a notification message on a smartphone that's much like a text, but generated by Google Calendar.

Still not clear to me. Do you want jaws to echo every character you type when using a regular keyboard, but only words when using the Perkins keyboard on your Braille display? The insert 2 keystroke should  cycle through the levels of keyboard feedback, but I don't believe there is anyway to have the feedback different for Perkins vs QWERTY.

I have found from the documentation and then testing that you have to type the star (asterisk) followed very quickly by a to select all conversations. The reverse of this is star N.
There is the possibility of changing this setting but the table to modify keyboard shortcuts is not veery intuitive.

Hi all,
I have enabled the Keyboard commands in Standard View. However, they
are not working. For instance, after choosing mails received from a
Sender 'through the search function' I wish to delete all of them at
once. However, the * command for 'selecting all mails' is not working.
Other commands such as 'e' for archive are also not working.
What mistake am I making?
Thanking you
Best
Turab

Indeed, because it hasn't been because it hasn't had any reason to be.  A program doing something as basic as Silenzio (which is correct) does is likely to remain un-updated "forever."

This is the source software.
