You press f6, which takes you to the address bar, then press tab and
you will see the toolbar buttons.

HI.

Not really. It usually stays at the level I set, but sometimes a restart of JAWS or a synthesiser switch will set it back to speaker level. Otherwise, though, the volume mixer settings generaly stay in tact.

Hi,
Does anyone know why when I try to turn the jaws synthesiser volume down from the mixer, it turns itself right back up? It usually does it once I've switched out of the window and it turns itself up to speaker volume level. Has anyone else had this issue?

I use Control D to open that Font attributes dialog.  In addition, you can select text then do Control Shift period to increase font size and control shift comma to decrease the font size.

For pretty much any version of Office since Office 2007, ALT+H, FF gets you to the dropdown to choose font face and ALT+H, followed by FS takes you to the dropdown for font size.

You can also use CTRL+Shift+F to bring up the full Font Dialog which includes pretty much any choice related to font you can think of.  Once it's open ALT+S takes you straight to the size attribute.

Today have been receiving numerous virus threats from defender, all relating to jaws. This, as far as I can tell, is not affecting jaws performance. The details of the threats are as follows –

 

Threat detected: Trojan:Win32/Fuery.B!cl

Alert Level: Severe

Date: August 2

Category: Trojan

Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

 

Affected Items:

Amsi:C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2019\jfw.exe

 

This has only occurred in the last day or so and hopefully is just a false positive.

 

Is anyone else having this problem? Should I uninstall Jaws and then re-install or maybe try a repair?

 

I contacted Microsoft Disability desk and the person I spoke to didn’t know how to fix the problem and apparently Microsoft will contact me in the next 24 hours to hopefully solve the problem.

 

Anyone got any suggestions?

Ah.

So it’s probably the jpegs taking up most of the 1+ mb filesize.

In that case, you probably won’t see much more reduction. I don’t know much about 7zip as I never used it extensively, but winrar and the old pkzip and winzip programmes let you choose between different levels of compression. “Normal” was/is usually checked by default. You can set “best” if you want and see if there’s much difference. I don’t know why this option isn’t the default nowadays because it doesn’t take most modern PCs long to zip o r rar up large amounts of data, but that’s still the case in winrar as well. Still, I just have to select the appropriate item in the dialogue box and hit enter and, there you go, it’s done.

 

Still think though that you won’t see much result if the file is full of pictures. How small do you actually want to make this thing?

It depends on the type of file. For stuff that is already compressed, like mp3s or jpgs, you will not see much reduction at all. But for text, the difference should be significant.

No, but Narrator will do that and since it is built into Windows, that should be OK.
On Windows 10, Control+Windows+enter to toggle Narrator on and off and the same insert+1 to do keyboard learn.

Otherwise, you will need to ask Freedom Scientific if they can implement that as an option since both Narrator and NVDA identify those keys. NVDA is more specific, but since it is open source and they won't let you install it, Narrator is the next best option for now.

Another reason I prefer to have a laptop with a US keyboard, is that I have the ability to use both the left and right alt keys to perform functions. The UK keyboard has only one alt key, which is the left alt key because, the right alt key, is configured as a combined alt+ctrl combination.
