Re: Outlook not reading Addresses

Randy Meyer
 

I just loaded Jaws 2018 and that does read the address selection in Outlook correctly.  Although, Jaws 2018 did ask me if I wanted to install an update and I said no, in case that update would cause the same problem I am encountering with Jaws 2019.

 

Weird that Jaws 2018 and narrator would read the address selection, but Jaws 2019 and NVDA will not.  I guess that why we have options.

Inputting email addresses in Outlook works correctly with narrator.  I am able to arrow down and select the email address I want.  It does not work correctly with NVDA or Jaws.

 

Again, any thoughts on getting this to work correctly with Jaws would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

When I start a new email in Outlook, it is not reading the addresses when I start typing.  For example, I am in the to field and type the letter t, I am told that there are five email addresses that start with t in my list, but when I arrow down it is no longer speaking the addresses.

 

I am using office 365 with Jaws 2019.

 

It use to read the addresses and let me arrow and select from a list.  Now it appears like there is a list that is not being read.

 

I will play around to see if NVDA or Narrator work correctly.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: putting a search query into the start menu search box

 

Bill,

           They do mean Right Arrow, and I'd just give this a try with a few of the items returned.  Once you've right arrowed, if there is more than one option you can down arrow/up arrow to go through them.  To get back to the list of items returned by the search you can just hit left arrow regardless of where you are in the list of options for the single item you're playing with.

Bill,

           What Version of Windows 10?  I have Version 1809, Build 17763.194, and when I do this the right arrow for something noted as settings throws focus to the open option for those settings.  What the right arrow does is move you out of the "search results" list/column and in to a list of things you can do with the current item you have focus on in the search results list.  What that is, of course, varies depending on the type of the search result item itself.

Re: Strange problem with chrome

using the JAWS cursor, do you find a cancel button? if so, "click" it.
did it go away? if not, try closing the session with a control+w or just
alt+f4 and try to visit and navigate a website.

Subject: Strange problem with chrome

Hi all,

Hoping someone can shed some light on a weird problem I'm having in
google chrome.

Sometimes when I try to open a web site, everything seems to be
proceeding normally, but instead of the site content all I see with
jaws is a button that says something like view site settings. If I tab
around it tells me something about the content being safe, how many
cookies are active and learn more. I can't get to the site content or
close this message.

What the heck is going on? And more importantly, is there some way to
stop this behavior?

Thanks

Re: Strange problem with chrome

Kimber Gardner
 

Part of the problem is I can't predict when the view settings thing
will happen. For example I was shopping the other day at qvc.com and
repeatedly getting the view settings message. Until I wasn't. I closed
the site three or four times then on the fifth try all was fine.
Sometimes it happens on the gmail web interface, most of the time not.

I know that isn't especially helpful. But the randomness is what makes
this issue all the more maddening.

The message that says how the content of the site has been deemed safe
does feel like it's significant. That why I was curious as to whether
there is some setting that tries to check that sort of thing.

In any case, it drives me crazy. I love Chrome otherwise and have only
been seeing this issue recently.

Hi.
I have rthe same problem, occasionally. Also, sometimes all I get is blank. When that happens, I go to the start menu and type default apps. then I revert to Internet Explorer for default for a while. Things eventually return to normal and I revert to chrome. bit of a pain.

It doesn't have anything to do with Windows sound schemes. It's the JAWS scheme which he changed, not the Windows sound scheme.

Re: green flags in Excel

Could it indicate a drop menu is present? Sometimes people set cells for you to pick a value from a list. I'm not sure what color those indicators would be. I can ask around here at work.

Hi,

Yes, right arrow. When you do press right arrow, an embedded Edge browser will show up, displaying top search results.

I am using Windows 10. When I press the Windows key and begin to enter a search query such as the letter U for Updates, JAWS says the following:

 

Check for updates, System settings, Press right to switch preview

 

What exactly do they mean by switching preview, and are they refering to the Right Arrow when they say

Boarder Changes in Excel 2016 Not Being Indicated

Hi!

 

I am using Excel 2016 under JAWS 2019 on my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit laptop.  Even though I have made the appropriate “check” under the JAWS settings to have my boarder changes indicated, it is not working.  Has anyone else had this problem?

 

Thanks,

Re: Google support phone number

 

I have not seen a Google phone number for anything other than sales for many moons now.

The last time I had phone interaction with Google the experience was not good.

I look to the product support forums first and foremost when it comes to Google.  There's almost certain to be someone else who's having or had the same issue you're having (regardless of the issue or specific Google product).  It becomes apparent pretty quickly which have been solved and which are ongoing.
