You must first go into advanced settings, and make sure that you check the check box which allows documents to open in draft view. Then draft view may be made the default in Word.

Thank you for your responses. The draft view works but I’m wondering now whether there’s a way to make it the default view in Word? Again I haven’t been able to locate it in the Word Options settings.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

 

I’ve just joined this group about 15 minutes ago so my apologies if this topic has been addressed before.

 

I’m using Windows 10 with Jaws 18 and am subscribed to Office 365. When I scroll through documents, I find that pages are skipped over – e.g I can end up on page 4 when I get to the end of page 1 using the down arrow. I’ve gone through the options in settings but haven’t found a solution yet.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Cheers

Accessibility of Minitool Partition Wizard

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I'm trying out Minitool Partition Wizard, the only one I know where you can convert MBR to GPT and vise versa, as well as converting NTFS to FAT, Exfat, and the like, without formatting the partitions and having to face the possibility of data loss. However, It only seems like this software is halfway accessible with JAWS. Does anybody know of a way that it can be made fully accessible? In other words, I want to be able to point to a hard drive or device in the list using the arrow keys.

Speech on demand silences Jaws until you press a key combination to read something specific, like insert+up-arrow to read the current line.
It is useful if you don't want jaws chattering away for no apparent reason, or when a screen is refreshing or a ticker item is changing value like during a download, or when streaming audio.
I use it mostly when streaming audio, especially if I am wanting to record that stream and don't want Jaws interrupting.
The command is insert+spacebar followed by s.
The same command puts it back to full speech.

Richard

OK.
I did not know that Jaws command.
I just had my wife check and the text is not on the screen, but obviously
Jaws speaks it.
Anyone can open any program using the mouse or touchpad however, even though
they cannot type.
So, perhaps a work around would be for him to put Jaws into Speech on demand
with insert+space then s, so unless they know a jaws command to read the
current line or to get it back to full speech, they wouldn't know what to
do.

Hi Mario,

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space for
the text that annoys you.

For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS default
dictionary:
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to ""

When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up into
smaller chunks.

The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being spoken
so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary Manager.

Hope this helps,

Ben

Don't know any trouble shooters but I have a couple workarounds.

 

 

Press control+alt+delete to open Secure desktop windows sign in dialog.  Then press escape to dismiss the window.  Sometimes this sorts things out.

 

Also press the keys to turn Narrator off then again to turn it back on. 

 

You can also sync your Narrator settings for startup by pressing control+windows key+n to bring up advanced settings.  Tab till you hear "Start Narrator before sign-in for everyone" and then Use current settings before sign-in. 

 

Did you know?  You can change the default soundcard for Narrator in this screen?  Helps if you have more than one sound device.

 

Sometimes we are on the lock screen.  Pressing escape should, but does not always go to the sign in window.  I find I have to move around with tab a few times then press escape.

 

I don't know why the sign in and lock screen windows are so unreliable.

Sometimes Windows is simply updating and won't talk for a while.

 

A new one for me is when I get to the pin edit box. I sometimes have to press space bar to edit. Other times I can just start typing my pin.  This is a good way for someone to overhear at least the first letter of your pin if you don't notice the prompt to press space bar to edit first.

 

Need to send this to Windows Feedback Hub.

Press Narrator+alt+f to send additional data if you have this turned on in settings

Syncback, was: What backup software can we use with jaws?

Robert Logue
 

Very flexible backup system that works with Jaws.  It's good for finding duplicates and different versions of files and folders. It runs a test that you can read before making changes.  There is a free version and I think you can try the other versions free for a time.  I haven't used it in a long time as I just use Windows 10 tools to keep versions of my files on another drive now.

moving by word seems to miss words in word 2016

Hi guys:

 

I am using word2016 and win10;

When control left or right arrows to move by word, jaws doesn’t say the word under the cursor all the time;

It seems to place the cursor on each word so it doesn’t skip them, but it just doesn’t say them all.

 

It seems to say words every two or three times of pressing control and one of the arrows.

 

I have already done a jaws repair, over and over again and it fixes it for a few minutes; but right away this phenomenon starts up again.

 

 

Please advise as you like.

Subject: Re: windows narrator

 

Don't know any trouble shooters but I have a couple workarounds.

 

 

Press control+alt+delete to open Secure desktop windows sign in dialog.  Then press escape to dismiss the window.  Sometimes this sorts things out.

 

Also press the keys to turn Narrator off then again to turn it back on. 

 

You can also sync your Narrator settings for startup by pressing control+windows key+n to bring up advanced settings.  Tab till you hear "Start Narrator before sign-in for everyone" and then Use current settings before sign-in. 

 

Did you know?  You can change the default soundcard for Narrator in this screen?  Helps if you have more than one sound device.

 

Sometimes we are on the lock screen.  Pressing escape should, but does not always go to the sign in window.  I find I have to move around with tab a few times then press escape.

 

I don't know why the sign in and lock screen windows are so unreliable.

Sometimes Windows is simply updating and won't talk for a while.

 

A new one for me is when I get to the pin edit box. I sometimes have to press space bar to edit. Other times I can just start typing my pin.  This is a good way for someone to overhear at least the first letter of your pin if you don't notice the prompt to press space bar to edit first.

 

Need to send this to Windows Feedback Hub.

Press Narrator+alt+f to send additional data if you have this turned on in settings

Hi. is there a trouble shooter to fix windows narrator on windows 10 1803. When I sign in, don’t hear any voices, just the clicks and some times doing control windows enter will not turn off narrator. The only way to do that was to power down and then log back on, any one got a trouble shooter for this. Did google but could not seem to find any thing, also is there a trouble shooter for my soundcard.

Any ideas.

Thanks.

I know alt+w opens the View menu.

What is the letter e supposed to do?

On my Word 2016, there is an item called Page Movement, but the hot key letter is c.

Hi,

 

When the Word Document is open, hit alt +w and then e. This will allow scrolling page to page without skipping.

Hi there,

 

I’ve just joined this group about 15 minutes ago so my apologies if this topic has been addressed before.

 

I’m using Windows 10 with Jaws 18 and am subscribed to Office 365. When I scroll through documents, I find that pages are skipped over – e.g I can end up on page 4 when I get to the end of page 1 using the down arrow. I’ve gone through the options in settings but haven’t found a solution yet.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Cheers

Zel

Re: turning off announcement of...

Speech on demand silences Jaws until you press a key combination to read something specific, like insert+up-arrow to read the current line.
It is useful if you don't want jaws chattering away for no apparent reason, or when a screen is refreshing or a ticker item is changing value like during a download, or when streaming audio.
I use it mostly when streaming audio, especially if I am wanting to record that stream and don't want Jaws interrupting.
The command is insert+spacebar followed by s.
The same command puts it back to full speech.

HTH,
Richard

OK.
I did not know that Jaws command.
I just had my wife check and the text is not on the screen, but obviously
Jaws speaks it.
Anyone can open any program using the mouse or touchpad however, even though
they cannot type.
So, perhaps a work around would be for him to put Jaws into Speech on demand
with insert+space then s, so unless they know a jaws command to read the
current line or to get it back to full speech, they wouldn't know what to
do.

If you are talking about the message about pressing control, alt, delete to
log on, yes it is shown on the screen.
When I lock my home computer with Windows-Key plus l, when I hit a key, the
password field pops up.
At work, they have it set that you have to press control-alt-delete to log
on and the message is shown as well as spoken.
If he used a password, someone knowing the keys to press wouldn't help them
unless they also know his password.

no. he just wants to prevent accidental potential disasters from happening
when he leaves the computer running for a while unattended, in case
something bumps a few keys, curious home members, etc.

does anyone know if this message actually displays on the screen when a key
is pressed after the keyboard is locked? I'm thinking it isn't.

he just tried it but it didn't work. he made the entry in the default
dictionary and even unloaded/reloaded JAWS, and after the keyboard is
locked, the announcement of what to press is still spoken.

how would he split up the announcement as you specified? give an example
using this announcement he doesn't want.

Hi Mario,

One strategy is to use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to substitute a space for
the text that annoys you.

For example, here's one I find annoying and have added to my JAWS default
dictionary:
"Type the name of a program, folder, document, or Internet resource," to ""

When the messages are long, it's most reliable when you break them up into
smaller chunks.

The Speech History command is good for viewing what exactly is being spoken
so you can create a proper substitution in the JAWS Dictionary Manager.

Hope this helps,

Ben

he looked at the quick settings but didn't find such a setting. he also

Re: ResearchIt Weather

It looks like the Wunderground Braille page is gone for good.  When I access it directly, I get a server error, and when I try to access it from Google, I am directed to the regular Wunderground site.  So it looks like the weather option in Research It will remain broken until JAWS is modified to work with another weather site like Weather Street:

If you've deleted a topic from your inbox you can always search the group archive, https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/topics, and since this one is so recent the actual topic itself is still showing up on the first page of the archive.  You can use the regular browser/screen reader search function and find it if you search for "new bug".

Subject: Outlook 2016 Question About Reading E-mail Fields



Hello, everyone.



I used to be able to read the various fields in an open Outlook 2016 e-mail
message using the alt key, followed by the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc..



This now no longer works.



Whenever I hit these key combinations, I get an "unavailable" message.



Does anyone know if something has changed to no longer make this possible,
and is there a work-around?



I also find shif-tabbing through the various fields to be very unreliable.



I'm using Windows 10, Office 365, and the latest build of Jaws 2019 here.



Thank you!
