Also never forget that all of this is covered in detail in Help > Jaws Help Topics. In this case here is what is said about speech on demand:

 

Speech On Demand

Speech On Demand is a feature that allows you to limit the amount of JAWS speech you hear as you navigate windows and documents or perform other actions using hot keys. By default, when using Speech On Demand, JAWS only announces actions that are associated with a limited set of hot keys. In addition, mouse echo and typing echo are still available, which allows JAWS to read text that you point to with the mouse pointer and speak characters and words as you type. You can quickly toggle between Speech On Demand and full speech using a convenient layered command, or even make Speech On Demand the default speech mode when JAWS starts.

For JAWS users who rely heavily on Braille or for users of Fusion that can see well enough to use the screen for tracking focus, too much speech can be overwhelming while navigating using the keyboard and mouse. However, users still want to be able to use speech to read once they have moved to a location on the screen, or just checking a Window Title, column heading in a table or spread sheet, or even reading the time from the System tray. In both these situations, Speech On Demand can be very helpful. You will find that switching applications with ALT+TAB or using ARROW keys to move through a document are silenced. Speech is only triggered when using a limited set of reading commands such as speaking the current character, word, line, paragraph, or doing a Say All. You also have the option to completely turn off speech.

Layered commands to toggle Speech On Demand or Mute Speech:

  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by S to toggle the speech mode between Full Speech and either Speech On Demand (the default) or Mute Speech.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by SHIFT+S while Full Speech is disabled to toggle between Speech On Demand and Mute Speech.

By default, JAWS always returns to Full Speech when restarted after these keystrokes have been used. To make permanent changes to the default settings, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
  2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file.
  3. In the tree view, expand the Speech Options group.
  4. Press the SPACEBAR on Speech Mode to change the default choice between Less Speech or Full Speech. Full Speech is selected by default.
  5. Press the SPACEBAR on Less Speech Options to change the default choice between Mute Speech or Speech On Demand. Speech On Demand is selected by default.
  6. Expand the Speech On Demand Options group.
  7. If you do not want any reading hot keys to speak with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to clear the Allow Reading Commands check box. Reading commands are spoken by default.
  8. If JAWS Mouse Echo is enabled and you want to hear text as you move the mouse with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Mouse Echo checkbox. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  9. If JAWS Typing Echo is set to Characters, Words, or Characters and Words and you want to hear what you are typing with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Typing Echo check box. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  10. Choose OK to save your changes and close Settings Center.

Note: When set to Speech On Demand or Mute Speech, all sounds played by JAWS are also muted. This includes the sound heard when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.

moderated Re: Excel rows and columns

 

Sieghard,

           Please send the sample spreadsheet to me via e-mail, as attachments get stripped (or at least they do on the web interface) by this Groups.io group.  I'll take a look and download JAWS so I have it in 40 minute mode.

           Also let me know whether it's column headings, row titles, or both that you're looking to have spoken as you traverse the table.  I do know that when I was last working with Excel and JAWS it will only read the column title once, when you land in that column, if you stay within it (move up/down) and the same was true of the row title (move left/right).

Hi Brian,

 

I attached a little sample spreadsheet I made. I thought I followed your steps to set it up so Jaws will read the column and row titles, but I can’t get it to work, what am I doing wrong?

Subject: Re: Excel rows and columns

 

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS.   This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:

    1. Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
    2. Open the Name dialog:

                                                               i.      Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

                                                             ii.      Activate the “Define Name” command (M)

                                                           iii.      Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Name”

                                                           iv.      The “New Name” dialog opens

 

Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:

    1. Name the cell using the following rules

                           i.  Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range

        1. Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
        2. ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
        3. RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for the columns in the range

                            ii.      Add a name for the range

        1. Title_WidgetSales
        2. ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
        3. RowTitle_WidgetSales

                              iii.      Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods

        1. Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
        2. Title_WidgetSales..J25
        3. ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
        4. RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
        5. Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:

  • Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
  • A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

moderated Re: Excel rows and columns

 

How can I set this up in a workbook which has let’s say 31 sheets, one for each day of the month. Each sheet is set up identically and I would like to se this up on the first sheet and have it so Jaws reads row and column titles on each subsequent sheet.

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS.   This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:

    1. Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
    2. Open the Name dialog:

                                                               i.      Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

                                                             ii.      Activate the “Define Name” command (M)

                                                           iii.      Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Name”

                                                           iv.      The “New Name” dialog opens

 

Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:

    1. Name the cell using the following rules

                           i.  Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range

        1. Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
        2. ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
        3. RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for the columns in the range

                            ii.      Add a name for the range

        1. Title_WidgetSales
        2. ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
        3. RowTitle_WidgetSales

                              iii.      Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods

        1. Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
        2. Title_WidgetSales..J25
        3. ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
        4. RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
        5. Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:

  • Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
  • A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

moderated Re: jaws quick / hot key

 

Also never forget that all of this is covered in detail in Help > Jaws Help Topics. In this case here is what is said about speech on demand:

 

Speech On Demand

Speech On Demand is a feature that allows you to limit the amount of JAWS speech you hear as you navigate windows and documents or perform other actions using hot keys. By default, when using Speech On Demand, JAWS only announces actions that are associated with a limited set of hot keys. In addition, mouse echo and typing echo are still available, which allows JAWS to read text that you point to with the mouse pointer and speak characters and words as you type. You can quickly toggle between Speech On Demand and full speech using a convenient layered command, or even make Speech On Demand the default speech mode when JAWS starts.

For JAWS users who rely heavily on Braille or for users of Fusion that can see well enough to use the screen for tracking focus, too much speech can be overwhelming while navigating using the keyboard and mouse. However, users still want to be able to use speech to read once they have moved to a location on the screen, or just checking a Window Title, column heading in a table or spread sheet, or even reading the time from the System tray. In both these situations, Speech On Demand can be very helpful. You will find that switching applications with ALT+TAB or using ARROW keys to move through a document are silenced. Speech is only triggered when using a limited set of reading commands such as speaking the current character, word, line, paragraph, or doing a Say All. You also have the option to completely turn off speech.

Layered commands to toggle Speech On Demand or Mute Speech:

  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by S to toggle the speech mode between Full Speech and either Speech On Demand (the default) or Mute Speech.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by SHIFT+S while Full Speech is disabled to toggle between Speech On Demand and Mute Speech.

By default, JAWS always returns to Full Speech when restarted after these keystrokes have been used. To make permanent changes to the default settings, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
  2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file.
  3. In the tree view, expand the Speech Options group.
  4. Press the SPACEBAR on Speech Mode to change the default choice between Less Speech or Full Speech. Full Speech is selected by default.
  5. Press the SPACEBAR on Less Speech Options to change the default choice between Mute Speech or Speech On Demand. Speech On Demand is selected by default.
  6. Expand the Speech On Demand Options group.
  7. If you do not want any reading hot keys to speak with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to clear the Allow Reading Commands check box. Reading commands are spoken by default.
  8. If JAWS Mouse Echo is enabled and you want to hear text as you move the mouse with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Mouse Echo checkbox. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  9. If JAWS Typing Echo is set to Characters, Words, or Characters and Words and you want to hear what you are typing with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Typing Echo check box. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  10. Choose OK to save your changes and close Settings Center.

Note: When set to Speech On Demand or Mute Speech, all sounds played by JAWS are also muted. This includes the sound heard when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.

This can be a very useful option for braille users who want some speech but don’t necessarily want Jaws to speak everything and it was really designed with braille users in mind. It is not a useful option for a completely blind person who relies on speech only.

Hi, Robin. When JAWS is set to mute speech, speech is always muted. When JAWS is set to use Speech on demand, speech is usually muted, but JAWS will still speek when using commands such as,

 

Say Character

Say Prior Word

Say Next Word

Say Word

Spell Word

Say Prior Line

Say Current Line

Spell Current Line

Say All

 

etc. So, you have speech muted, but when using navigational commands except for arrow keys, JAWS will speak normally.

Sieghard, Are you able to articulate to me what Speech on Demand really does?  Even without following the steps you and Bill each outlined,  I was finding that the JAWS spacebar then S would mute my speech.  JAWS says Speech on Demand, but when this is active, I havent’ noticed JAWS speaking so it’s effectively been a mute function for me.  I’m not clear how someone would use Speech on Demand and am guessing that you have to customize how JAWS will or won’t speak in this mode, but can’t imagine how it’s used.

Hi Bill,

 

Just for your information, you can accomplish what  you described also in the following way:

 

1. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S – this will turn on speech on demand

2. Now press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by Shift + S – Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech mute”

3. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S again – Jaws will now say full speech and from now on when you press this layered shortcut it will toggle between mute and full speech.

If you want to go back to speech on demand simply repeat the above steps, first toggle speech to mute, then press the layered keystroke but with Shift + S and Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech on demand”, now the toggle is back between full speech and speech on demand.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi, Rick. In case all you want to do is to mute speech instead of unloading JAWS entirely, try the following,

 

1. Open Settings Center with INSERT plus six on numbers row.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load Default JAWS configuration.

3. In the search field, type

 

speech.

 

4. Arrow down to Less Speech Options.

5. Press SPACE BAR to toggle speech from Speech On Demand to Mute Speech.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER to save settings.

 

7. Now, INSERT plus SPACE, followed by S will mute speech instead of setting it to Speech On Demand.

Or,  Here is the quick and durty way to get JAWS to read the row  and columb titles.
1.  Place the curser at the beginning of the row and at the top of the columb that you want spoken.
2.  To get Jaws to say the row titles, press and hold Insert, Alt, Control and press R.
3.  To get Jaws to say the columb titles, press and hold Insert, Alt, Control and press C.
It is a bit like playing finger twister, but it works.

moderated Re: Excel rows and columns

 

From a tutorial I put together for a former student.  There is another way to do this via JAWS such that it "doesn't stick," but my client always wanted JAWS to read column headers (and, sometimes, row titles) every time he needed to touch a given spreadsheet, so this is how to set things up in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will read these any time it's opened:

You will receive many files where the column title row has not been defined such that JAWS can read it.  Once you figure out which row contains the column titles, do the following:

1.     INS+V, Bring up JAWS Verbosity Settings

2.     Type column, in the Verbosity Search Box

3.     Arrow down to Column Titles Row Range Set

4.     Hit Spacebar, this should cause JAWS to announce the row number you were sitting on that contains the column titles.  (If this is on the first row JAWS will say one but if it’s the fifth row it will say five.)

If you also want JAWS to announce the rows by the data that you have in the first column, you will want to continue as follows:

1.     Hit Down Arrow to move to the Row Titles for Column Range Set

2.     Hit spacebar and JAWS will announce the column letter that contains the data that will be used to announce the row title.  So you will hear A if it’s column A, B if column B, etc.

Hi tom, I agree with you regarding the Jaws cursor. At least in XP I was able to find some things with it, but as Jaws has progressed, or regressed, as the case may be, there is less and less functionality. I’m not sure why I even try to use it any more, as I get the blankety-blanke blanks 98% of the time.  This has forced me to try the touch cursor more often, though I’m underwhelmed with it so far. Guess I just need to spend more time with it.

Hi,

Going back even as far as Windows XP, I’ve seen many instances in which invoking the Jaws cursor and then using the arrow keys results in “blank, blank, blank”  et cetera and I’ve never gotten a satisfactory answer regarding why that happens. I’ve tried tweaking the screen resolution and other settings, to no avail. 

As for the John’s cursor, I’ve never actually encountered one of those but I would speculate that it must be some device that kicks into high gear when a guy hanging out in the red-light district gets busted and hauled in for soliciting.

word by word or character by character to move and click an element or
a word to read. So I am literally unable to grabb anything clickable
or any word to locate in Jaws cursor mode.
I have tested through various Jaws versions from April 2019 down to
2018, but it gives the same result.
I use a Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C laptop with all the drivers
and firmwares up to date.

Any tip or help greatly appreciated.




moderated Excel rows and columns

Good morning,

I know this can be done somehow. How do you get JAWS to read the row and column headers in Excel? Thanks!

All the Best,
Brian Switzer

Thanks, Bill.  I’ll have to explore this.  Not sure how I’d use that yet, but it’s always good to know what JAWS is capable of doing.

Hi, Robin. When JAWS is set to mute speech, speech is always muted. When JAWS is set to use Speech on demand, speech is usually muted, but JAWS will still speek when using commands such as,

 

Say Character

Say Prior Word

Say Next Word

Say Word

Spell Word

Say Prior Line

Say Current Line

Spell Current Line

Say All

 

etc. So, you have speech muted, but when using navigational commands except for arrow keys, JAWS will speak normally.

Sieghard, Are you able to articulate to me what Speech on Demand really does?  Even without following the steps you and Bill each outlined,  I was finding that the JAWS spacebar then S would mute my speech.  JAWS says Speech on Demand, but when this is active, I havent’ noticed JAWS speaking so it’s effectively been a mute function for me.  I’m not clear how someone would use Speech on Demand and am guessing that you have to customize how JAWS will or won’t speak in this mode, but can’t imagine how it’s used.

Hi Bill,

 

Just for your information, you can accomplish what  you described also in the following way:

 

1. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S – this will turn on speech on demand

2. Now press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by Shift + S – Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech mute”

3. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S again – Jaws will now say full speech and from now on when you press this layered shortcut it will toggle between mute and full speech.

If you want to go back to speech on demand simply repeat the above steps, first toggle speech to mute, then press the layered keystroke but with Shift + S and Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech on demand”, now the toggle is back between full speech and speech on demand.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi, Rick. In case all you want to do is to mute speech instead of unloading JAWS entirely, try the following,

 

1. Open Settings Center with INSERT plus six on numbers row.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load Default JAWS configuration.

3. In the search field, type

 

speech.

 

4. Arrow down to Less Speech Options.

5. Press SPACE BAR to toggle speech from Speech On Demand to Mute Speech.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER to save settings.

 

7. Now, INSERT plus SPACE, followed by S will mute speech instead of setting it to Speech On Demand.

Hi all,

 

Sorry for my constant inquiries but is there a short cut for turning jaws on and off? Something more quick than alt tabbing to jaws and hitting alt F4?

 

Thanks

Well, maybe the issue is more complex than that? I only suggest this because I have been using and mostly loving Windows 10 for over two years now, and don’t really experience any of the problems with the JAWS cursor most of you are describing. Mostly still works great/as well as  ever on this system, though I admit I hardly use any of the new “universal style apps” at all, where this cursor mostly is useless anyway. It used to give me nothing from Firefox, but turning hardware acceleration off (I think – was a long time ago that I had to tweak this setting) fixed that.

I do not know what goes on in those technology showcases, but at least wish some Canadian and American mates appearing in those places with their real comments and feed-backs.

I sometimes listen FSCast podcasts, however, it is nothing more than a commercial session with some plastic questions and comments rather than a real community driven discussion on the product itself.

I have tested through various Jaws versions from April 2019 down to

For those who are using Outlook, and have been having trouble with ALT plus S followed by P to show the Send and Receive Progress,

 

On some systems, the ribbon shortcut command has slightly changed. Now it may be,

 

ALT plus J, followed by S, then P.
