I love learning things I didn’t know before. I tested all this, figured out how to highlight text in Word from the keyboard, and JAWS found it. NVDA indeed does not.

Dean, I think you are right. screen readers in general don't see the highlighted text. It has something to do with word itself. However, I have found a work around. Following steps can be used to easily navigate the highlighted text in a document: 
1. Press Ctrl+H to open the Word's Find and Replace dialogue box. 
2. Press Alt+M to extend the dialogue box. Nothing will happened if the box is already extended. 
3. Press Alt+O to extend the format tab in the Find and Replace dialogue box. 
4. Press H to toggle on highlights in the format tab. 
5. Now, word is set to find the highlighted text in the document. Press Alt+F to find the next instance of the highlighted text, or manually tab to the Find Next button and hit enter. 
6. Press ESC to exit the Find and Replace dialogue box. Page UP and Down commands can now be used for going backward and forward with the highlighted text in the document. 

I have also recorded a macro for the above process. I will be happy to share it if anyone is interested. 

** If you wish to restore the Page UP and Down functionality, simply Press Ctrl+G to open the Go To dialogue box, Press Shift+Tab to enter the Go To What list, and hit enter on the first entry, which is Page.

Hi all
I'm looking for a podcast host for a podcast which I'll administer.
Does anyone have experience with podcast hosting platforms in general and can recommend a good one? Also any in particular which I should stay away from due to poor web pages in terms of accessibility?

                How do I program the 6 function keys?  I might like to modify Jaws scripts to have different functions available for different programs.

 

I looked on the Logitech site but couldn’t find any information.

I have my audio bluetooth transmitter on top of a wood cabinet and a keyboard receiver on about 35 feet of USB cable to work in another room of the house.  It makes a real difference to get away from the computer case and my metal desk.

 

I’ve been using the G613 for a couple of days and remember why I have been wanting a mechanical keyboard since I lost my last one in a house fire thirty years ago.  Except for the extra keys on the left, I am typing faster and really like it.

 

One of the two keyboards I ordered was damaged in shipment and Amazon has already replaced it.  With a credit I had from a previous Amazon order problem and by signing up for the Amazon Visa card, the two keyboards cost me $6 each.  I’ll probably have to wait another 25 years for Amazon to give me another deal like that.

The extension cable is to cut down on the interference from the PC tower. You may be surprised how much better it works if you use the cable and place the receiver a couple of feet away from all the electronics.

Subject: Logitech G613 Lightspeed wireless mechanical gaming keyboard

 

Hi,

 

I thought it would be OK to post a brief review here on the Logitech G613 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard since just as myself I assume others also are always looking for the “perfect” keyboard.

This Logitech G613 “Lightspeed” wireless mechanical gaming keyboard can connect to iOS via Bluetooth and to a PC using the supplied USB receiver which then let’s you take advantage of the “Lightspeed” 1 millisecond delay which is pretty impressive (if you connect to a PC with Bluetooth this does not apply and while it’s probably still just as good as any other Bluetooth keyboard, it sort of makes sense to make the most of this keyboard’s features).

I still use my trusty Logitech K780 at home where I have it connected to my laptop via Bluetooth as well as to my iPhone and Apple TV, but I bought the G613 for my main PC at work and I must say so far it’s getting pretty close to that perfect score.

Unlike most wired mechanical gaming keyboards this does not have all the fancy RGB lighting options which of course is fine for me. The one thing I am not super fond of are the 6 F1 through fF6 function keys in a vertical column down the left side of the keyboard with maybe half an inch of space between them and the left most keys like Control, Shift, Caps Lock, Tab, ` and Escape. But I also bought a wired Logitech mechanical keyboard and it also has them, most mechanical keyboards are designed for gamers rather than people who want a mechanical keyboard for typing. It takes a bit of getting used to not accidently pressing them. gamers can configure these keys as macro keys to perform whatever actions gamers want.

Apart from that the keyboard has a very traditional layout with nice spaces between the blocks of function keys, the inverted cursor T, the 6-pack with Insert/Delete, Page Up/Down and Home/End, of course the number pad and above that it has 4 more slightly lower media keys for Play/Pause, Stop, Rewind and Forward.

At the very top is a slider switch which locks the Windows key which apparently gamers like so they don’t accidently press it and Cortana/the search box pops up, then there are two buttons which switch between the USB Lightspeed connection and the Bluetooth connection and once the Bluetooth connection to the iPhone has been established all it takes is to press the Bluetooth button in order to switch to the phone and the USB button to switch back.

On the very top right is a large key which is a volume rocker, press the left side for down and the right side for up and beside that is a Mute button. Finally on the right side towards the back is a on/off slider switch.

The keyboard runs on 2 AA batteries and is supposed to give you 18 month of battery life.

There is a proper application key on the right side of the spacebar which works, but there is no Windows key on the right side which is something you don’t hardly see any more.

 

Logitech uses their own Romer-G switches and not Cherry MXswitches. The Romer-G are most like Cherry Brown, a nice distance of travel, but not hard to press and relatively quiet for mechanical keys.

They do take a bit of getting used to, but I quite like them. For those who want to read more about them, below is a link to a review from Tom’s Hardware:

 

Logitech’s Romer-G Switches – Are they any good?

 

The other nice thing about this keyboard is it’s relatively reasonable price, I paid $129.99 Canadian for it, believe I read that on a good deal you can pick it up in the US for as low as $70 US.

Wireless mechanical keyboards are not out there too much yet, I did find a couple more made by the company “Das Keyboard” but they are more expensive although I may order them from Amazon to test and if I don’t like them at least as much or better send them back. My other 2 computers at my store where I have a Logitech MK510 keyboard and mouse combo both start to show their wear on the keyboards and I want to see if using mechanical keyboards won’t change the fact that many of the keyboards which are mostly out there these days are typically done after 2 or at most 3 years of heavy use.

As with all mechanical keyboards keep in mind that the Logitech G613 is heavy compared to other non-mechanical wireless keyboards.

And one last thing which is nice, this keyboard has function keys which work as function keys out of the box and as much as I also like my K780, it’s a bit of a pain to have to install the not very accessible Logitech Options software just so you can change the function keys to behave like function keys instead of media keys.

 

 

Happy typing,

Sieghard

Jason, NVDA reads out other attributes of the text, but no information regarding the highlight. I read around the internet and found out that word doesn't identify highlights as format settings. NVDA also can't recognise highlighted text.

All you have to do is to download the JAWS executable and run it, and it will repair the product.  In my case, thanks to some guidance from FS tech support, I also copied my settings folder, found when you hit Explore my Settings from utilities, elsewhere and deleted its contents.  That was the only way I solved my problem.  Also, a couple of us have experienced, if you have any older versions of JAWS on the system, that the program insists on coming up asking you to merge the settings from the earlier version, and it will not accept no for an answer.  I had to remove JAWS 2018 which I never used any longer anyway.

Hi David & Dean,

 

Normally I pin my most used shortcuts to the Taskbar and these shortcuts are never affected by Jaws updates.  But, yesterday I created a Chrome shortcut keystroke from the desktop icon and after I ran that J2019.1907.42 update that came out yesterday my Chrome shortcut keystroke didn't work anymore, so I've recreated it and went on my merry way.  I don't know why this keystroke was affected and none of my other icon shortcut keystrokes were not, but I just chalk it up to, oh well what the hell, and move on!  LOL 

 

Keep rooting for those BoSox and if they catch a break maybe we'll see each other in the World Series again, so the Dodgers can extract a little revenge!  LOL

It works fine here. Perhaps press JAWSKey+1, then press the keystroke and
see what message you get, just to verify that you're pressing the right
keystroke. Otherwise, if it isn't working in the present version of JAWS, a
repair may be needed, and you can call FS tech support. I had a recent
bizarre problem where, actually for some time, the F quick key in my browser
did nothing, whereas it should navigate among form controls. I had to do a
repair, after copying my settings file and deleting my settings.

Hi:

Is the insert + pg up/dwn key presses simultaneous or done in sequence?

Hi David & Dean,
 
Normally I pin my most used shortcuts to the Taskbar and these shortcuts are never affected by Jaws updates.  But, yesterday I created a Chrome shortcut keystroke from the desktop icon and after I ran that J2019.1907.42 update that came out yesterday my Chrome shortcut keystroke didn't work anymore, so I've recreated it and went on my merry way.  I don't know why this keystroke was affected and none of my other icon shortcut keystrokes were not, but I just chalk it up to, oh well what the hell, and move on!  LOL 
 
Keep rooting for those BoSox and if they catch a break maybe we'll see each other in the World Series again, so the Dodgers can extract a little revenge!  LOL

Of course it is an alt=+control shortcut!  Thank you for pointing this out, as I was obviously not thinking at all.

 

Now, on to your shortcut question: this seems a bit mystifying.  How was your Google Chrome shortcut created, and how were the shortcuts that survive the update created?  I definitely have no problem of JAWS updates impacting windows shortcut keys!

Hello Mike:

 

Have confirmed that it’s the alt + Cntrl + page up/down keys that accomplish this change.  Thanks for the info.

 

Being from State of MA(originally), have to stick with the BoSox.

 

One more question:  Each time I install a Jaws update, it “wipes out” my Google Chrome(keyboard) shortcut while a couple of others I have remain unaffected.  Any thoughts?

 

Best regards,

moderated Re: Recording Skype calls

JM Casey
 

I don’t use Sound Forge, but if you do, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you are doing. And you should be able to set your recording input to “what you hear” or “system” or “loop” or something like that, so it will capture the sound issued by your card.

There might be an easier way. Look around on the web and see what solutions people have. I thought that back in th e day, maybe before Skype was a microsoft product, it had a record feature built-in, but if that was ever the case, it’s certainly gone, now.

Can anyone give me some insights on recording a skype call? I use Jaws.

If one needs to record it in another program rather than Skype, I do use Sound Forge.  

Thanks.
