Hello Geralt,

Thank you for your information and concern. I know everything you are talking about, but I am just used to the oftware, plus I prefer Russian telemetry than the American telemetry.

Why would anyone trust a paid anti-virus program who developers are based in Russia?  There have been allegations that this company may even be involved in the Russian hacking scheme to influence the outcomes of the 2016 and now the 2020 elections, and that it may even have close ties to Vladimir Puten. I have no idea whether these allegations are true or not, but why take chances when Windows Security is free and totally accessible and does a satisfactory job?

SAPI 4 driver in latest Jaws?

Arkadiusz Świętnicki
 

Hello!

I am using JAWS 2020, with a SAPI 5 voice, namely espeak. However I found out that its not as responsive as I can get. And since I am a fast-working person, that’s a nusicance for me. So I came up with an idea to try and stuff a SAPI4 driver into JFW, because SAPI 4 voices tend to be more responsive than SAPI5. Has anyone got any ideas on how to help me and fix my responsiveness problems?

Pozdrawiam,

The only thing I ever had trouble with in using PayPal is the resolution of a bad transaction, where I needed to get refunded.
I had to finish the process via telephone, and that was all automated.

Norma,

To add to the suggestions in the thread below, you might try any of the following:

Maximize the webpage and then press JAWS key+escape to “repaint” it.

Unload and reload JAWS.

Unload JAWS 2020 and, if you have one on your system, try an earlier version. I recently noticed that JAWS 18 can accomplish some tasks that JAWS 2020 won’t.

If you haven’t already, reboot your system and start over.

For the record, I haven’t recently had accessibility problems with PayPal, but I may not have needed to execute this particular command.

PayPal has, or used to have, a recognize accessible technology expert on staff. If you can’t resolve this problem, I’m guessing they’d be receptive to working with you, especially with cancelling this transaction.

I’m sorry you’re experiencing such frustration. It’s awful when you reach the button you need and it won’t work.

Hi Norma,

Have you tried the space bar on the button?

Also, did you do insert + F5 and down arrow to the desired button?

Another thing to try is to get to the button and do insert + #3 (above the E key) which is enter key to pass through

and then try enter and/or space bar.

HTH.

Hey group,

 

I’m using Jaws 2020 and I’ve tried to activate a menu button on Paypal. Specifically, it’s in Invoice Activity. I’ve tried with Edge, Firefox 72.0.1  and Chrome 80.0.3987.122. Here’s the speech history:

 

Column 10
Actions
Remind
Button‑ 
button menu‑ collapsed‑
Column 11

 

I’ve tried PC, Jaws and Touch cursors and from the list of buttons. It doesn’t open a menu, it just takes me to the detail page of the selected invoice. (No go with NVDA, either, for what it’s worth.)

I need to cancel the invoice, and I read that option is in this menu I can’t get to open.

Ideas will be most welcome.

 

Thanks,

Norma

Re: Excel and Jfw 2020

 

It may be something else together with the FN key.

On a normal keyboard you have to tap it twice quickly to toggle it on or off and yes, that was a great recommendation, it just happened to me the other day, but it’s such an automatic fix that I didn’t even think of it.

You should be able to put JAWS in keyboard help mode by pressing Insert + 1 on the number row and then tap each key to locate the scroll lock key. I'm pretty sure all laptops should have one. Keyboard help is a toggle so you can turn it off with another Insert + 1.

Re: Unable to activate button menu-paypal.com

 

Where do you find “simulating left click on enter”? I searched in Jaws Settings Centre for Chrome as well as the default and also the quick settings when Chrome was open and neither “click” Nor “simulate” or “click” brings up such an option.

Re: Greetings and Kaspersky Total Security with JAWS

Hello. While I have not used Kaspersky Total Security I have been using Kaspersky Antivirus for approximately five years with both JAWS as well as with NVDA. I can definitely confirm your findings. I won't say much about using Kaspersky with NVDA since this is a JAWS-specific list. However, the following link will take you to a detailed review which I wrote discussing NVDA's performance with Kaspersky. When using Kaspersky Antivirus with JAWS I have sometimes seen JAWS being able to read the various controls as I navigate to them with tab or shift-tab but this accessibility seemed to stop working after a while. I am guessing this could have been due to a Kaspersky program update but I cannot confirm this without uninstalling it and reinstalling an earlier version which I honestly don't wish to do. For now the tab key reads nothing and, as you say, using the touch cursor is necessary when navigating in the main window. If you access the program from the system tray choosing the Settings or Task Manager options may be more accessible with JAWS. I do feel that some scripting could solve for many of these issues.

Good day sir,
whenever such a think happens, press F11 to maximize the browser window, atleast in Chrome. Keep in min though you will not be able to access the left alt menu while the browser is maximized. You need to press F11 again to restore the browser window to its original state again.
Best,
Nuno.

Greetings and Kaspersky Total Security with JAWS

Arkadiusz Świętnicki
 

Hello guys!

Thank you for letting me in in to your groups! I am a JAWS user from Poland, primarily interested in programming, sound design and other things. I have came here to discuss this great screenreader with you, ask questions and help others to the best of my ability.

The first problem I have noticed and wanted to discuss is JAWS support for the Kaspersky Total Security package. I use this software and it is essential for me to have this one pretty wellaccessible.. The competing screenreader works with it OK, however JAWS has its problems. Tab and Shift+Tab seem not to work at all while I am in the PC Cursor mode. I have to use the touch cursor to operate the software, and it is not always convenient to use this specific cursor.

Moreover this behavior is very illogical to me, as KTS’s interface seems to be standard WPF or something of that sorts.

Maybe I am doing something wrong (I’m pretty new to JFW, I use it for less than a year).

Pozdrawiam,

Arkadiusz Świętnicki AKA. Nuno

I am not having this problem. First time I’m not having MS Office product issues lol. However, I am using Office 2019, not 365. Jaws 2020 and Windows 10.

Hi everyone,

 

Today, Excel stopped reading cells to me entirely. I’m able to use commands such as find, but it wont read anything in the cells once whatever I’m finding is actually found. Any ideas what’s going on?  I’m only having this problem in Excel btw, Word and Outlook work just fine and I don’t use any of the other products in the suite to test them out.

 

TIA,

Sarah

Hi,

 

Nope, Suite 2010. I hope to be upgrading to 365 within the next month though.

 

Thanks,

Sarah
