Adrian Spratt
 

Tom,

 

If insert-pagedown is working for you, that’s what’s supposed to happen. However, for a lot of folders, that count measures only the number of files shown in a screen. It doesn’t show the number of files in the folder, which is often much larger. The method I described, which I learned from Rebecca on the closed JAWS list, enables JAWS users to get both the screen and the folder count.

Adrian:

 

Unfortunately, I was unable to get an accurate file count by switching to Narrator, and then back to Jaws as you suggest.

 

For me, insert page down seems to be the best way to get an accurate file count, until this bug is fixed.

 

Of course, I’m always open to other suggestions.

 

By the way, I always check to be sure my screen is maximized.

Switch to Narrator, which gives counts for both the current screen and the entire file list in a folder. Switch back to JAWS, and JAWS is now likely to report the desired information.

It seems to me there was a solution to this little problem, but I can’t remember it. JAWS 2019 in Windows 10 gives inaccurate counts of files.  It will report that a given file is 1 of 25, when in fact there are many more than 25 files in the folder. I have changed the item type of the folder, to no avail. NVDA does this fine. The file is maximized. Is there a known fix?

 

 


moderated Re: Do I need JAVA?

 

There's no way anyone can really answer this, as it depends entirely on whether you use any online apps or websites that use Java.

I would uninstall the Java Runtime Environment from Control Panel, Programs & Features then see how things go.  If you do end up needing Java for something you can just download and reinstall it again, which is what you'll do anyway if you wish to try to resolve this issue.

Most people don't use JAVA. you would only need to use JAVA if you are using a program that requires it, such as some online classes.

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Here is a general idea of what to do.
1. Open up settings center.
2. search for modify
3.  click modify scheme 
4. Create a new scheme and then edit it.
5. Change the tab to controls There will be a list of about 90 controls. For each control you can ignore, speak with standard speech, speak with a different voice alias or play a wav sound.
I don't know how to add new voice aliases to the list of voices listed there, but I can't imagine it being too difficult. 
I only checked by changing button to play buzzer.wav and indeed the word button was replaced with a misspelling like buzzer sound.
I would love to see a sound scheme that replaced button and link and slider wit appropriate wav files.

Windows+u merely brings up the Ease of Access Center (and then it's
alt+n to start Narrator), but the same keystroke does not turn off
Narrator. I don't think there is a keystroke to turn on and off Narrator
in Windows 7. there should be a Narrator dialog that has an Exit button,
which once "pressed", brings up another dialog asking if the user is
sure they want to turn off Narrator.

With Jaws and with Chrome open, bring up quick settings with Jaws Key + V, type "copy" in the search box and tab once, you should hear this:

Press the spacebar and it should change to read like this:

They don’t make this easy.

Here, there is a toggle button for the global setting, which is either Block or (roughly) ask each time, the default.  I much prefer Block!  Below, you can add sites to the block or Allow lists.

Hi all,

 

When I open Google Chrome on my win7-64-powered computer running Jaws 2019, I sometimes hear notifications. Some of them, like download progress are easily reachable by pressing the <F6> or <Shift+F6> key but some others do not seem to be reachable.

 

In addition, some of these notifications I don’t know how to reach have several buttons which are spoken once by Jaws. One of them is “Notifications settings” and another is “done”. Since I don’t know how to interact with this button, I tried to find a page about notifications settings in the Chrome menu. I definitely know how to display the Chrome settings page but in this page, I cannot figure out what to look for about notifications.

 

Finally, since I don’t know how to press the “done” button which is spoken by Jaws at the end of notifications, when I press <alt+F4> to close Chrome, the foreground Chrome window is closed but Chrome still runs in the background. So, how can I interact with those notifications please?

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

When trying to copy text, have you tried dropping a temporary placemarker with windows control + K, and then moving to the other end of what you want to copy and press insert + space bar, and then the letter M.
This will select what you want, then you do the normal copy command.
On the Google settings, try saving the settings before leaving the page.
