Hi Rick,

Try this:

1.            Press Alt R then t followed by d.

2.            Use the up/down arrow keys to find the ‘All markup’
option, then press enter or escape.

3.            You should then be back in the main document.

4.            Press Shift, Control and Apostrophe simultaneously and use
your up/down arrows to read the comments. Pressing escape or tabbing to
‘Ok’ should put the focus on where the comment is but you may have to go
up and down with the arrow keys to get Jaws to read both the text and
comment.

This link has some good info on using screen readers to access comments.

Hi all,

I have a Microsoft Word document that is being reviewed with comments
added by all parties. I receive this as an attachment and for example,
arrowing down, I hit the date line upon the cover page. It tells me
comment and the initials of the individual commenting and the number of
the comment within the document. For example, Jaws says comment abc1
then the date. Another example is within the table of contents, #10 for
example is blah blah blah on page blah blah blah. The beginning of this
line, Jaws says comment abc2 then the title of this section and the page
number that it is on/in..

How do I find the comments? There is obviously something hidden, the
said comment, but how to get jaws to read the comment? Hitting enter
does not read it nor is anything seen upon the document, visually that is.

Thanks for your help,

Rick

I agree.  I have found the technique of:  /f, save all attachments, to be a good approach for regular use.  Rather than guessing, just do that short set of keystrokes and you are assured you have everything.  I have in the past missed attachments by relying on them to appear in that separate attachment window in the email.

There are cases when the sender can attach the document into the body of the text.  I think it’s when using RTF format.  I rarely see this, but some people like it because they can place an icon to the attachment in a specific spot in the text of their email.   For example, some sighted people do this because they want to show which attachment relates to a particular part of their message, especially if they are including multiple attachments.  I suppose others just do it because that’s the way their email client is set up.  In either case, I then go to the File menu in Outlook and select the option to save all attachments.  It’s not ideal, but it’s more efficient that wondering if you’ve found the attachments.

Hi All,

 

I have recently encountered an issue with only some email senders. I have one particular person who sends emails with meeting agendas and minutes attached. When I read the email preview in my inbox, it tells me there is an attachment. However, when I open the message and try to backspace to open the attachment, it isn’t there. I have also tried insert + A to bring up a list of attachments, and I get a message telling me there are no attachments in the message. The only way to access the attachments seems to be if I save them first.

 

I am using JAWS 17, and we use Office 365 at work.

 

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

 

Thanks so much,

 

Cynthia

Re: comments within a MS Word document

Zel Iscel
 

  1. Press Alt n, then n, then u.
  2. Jaws should say, “Top of page submenu”. Press enter on this.

Then tab to get your options. I believe ‘Plane number 1’ puts numbering on left, ‘Plain number 2’ puts the numbering on the top centre and “plain number 3” places the numbers on the top right.

  1. When you make your choice, press enter and the focus should be back in your main document.

 

Good luck.

Thanks for the responses so far. I wonder about the RTF issue. When I shift tab to go to the list of attachments, it reads me the message subject followed by “RTF message”. It does not, however, give me a list of attachments. I seem to get this no matter how the document is attached.

Hi Tom,

 

This sounds like Windows updated your soundcard with a gineric driver and in doing so it took away your Realtech equalizer but also in doing this, you can't roll back your driver because Windows sees this gineric driver as the latest driver.  I've had this happen in the past, and the bad sound you're now getting is because you don't have the Enhancements available that help make Realtech sound good.  You need to get the Realtech drivers that came with your computer and reinstall them.  This is only a personal opinion coming from the same type of situation but, using a desktop computer and not a laptop.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Hi, Tom. It sounds as if you may be using digital output rather than analog output. Sometimes, depending upon which jacks you are using, you may lose sound when turning off spacial effects when using digital output.

Re: Distorted Jaws Speech After Dell Update

Tom;

 

if you're not seeing the enhancements option,

you already have the windows driver installed.

the enhancements option is with the Realtek driver only.

do you have another version of jaws on your system?

jaws2018 perhaps?

I highly doubt it's a jaws issue, but it may be worth a try.

otherwise, you may need to reinstall the audio drivers.

I'm using a laptop here, so don't have external speakers.

The distorted sound occurs in both the laptop speakers and headphones.

I don't know if this helps, but it is another observation.

Hi, Tom. You switch from digital to analog by switching your Speaker output in the same place you are already looking, Control Panel>Sound>Playback. Look at which output is set as your default sound device. Usually the analog is the uppermost device, with the digital output below that. Be careful about doing this, because if your speakers connect to your sound card via a USB, you want to leave it connected via the digital output. If your speakers are connected via a cord that looks like a cord to a pair of headphones, you probably want analog output. This usually requires that you switch the jack to which the speakers are connected. One uses Spacial output, the other does not. This is the reason you are losing sound when you try to turn off Spacial Sound. If you are connected to the correct jack, you won't lose sound when you remove the Spacial Sound effect.

If by reduce the sampling rate, you mean reduce the volume of other devices, I tried this, and it made no difference.

before uninstalling the drivers, from the Communications Tab, select the do nothing radio button, and from the audio page, reduce the sampling rate and see if it works.

Hi, Tom. It sounds as if you may be using digital output rather than
analog output. Sometimes, depending upon which jacks you are using,
you may lose sound when turning off spacial effects when using digital output.

Hello, everyone.



I just did a Dell update to my Windows 10 laptop, and now my Jaws
speech sounds rather tinny and is very distorted.



Lowering the system volume does not lessen the distortion.



Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?



I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019 here.

Re: Distorted Jaws Speech After Dell Update

Hi, Tom. You switch from digital to analog by switching your Speaker output in the same place you are already looking, Control Panel>Sound>Playback. Look at which output is set as your default sound device. Usually the analog is the uppermost device, with the digital output below that. Be careful about doing this, because if your speakers connect to your sound card via a USB, you want to leave it connected via the digital output. If your speakers are connected via a cord that looks like a cord to a pair of headphones, you probably want analog output. This usually requires that you switch the jack to which the speakers are connected. One uses Spacial output, the other does not. This is the reason you are losing sound when you try to turn off Spacial Sound. If you are connected to the correct jack, you won't lose sound when you remove the Spacial Sound effect.
