Hi,

 

I’m sorry if this is off topic for this list, but I don’t know of any list I’m on, where I could ask this.

 

I found an app for podcasts, called Pocketcasts, which works quite nicely with jaws2019.

 

My question is, can you download stuff from a web app?

 

Can I download episodes, like I can with the ios app?

Any info on this topic would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Steve, in Windows 7, thumbnails and the preview pane have been disabled already but he still gets the problem 5 or 6 times out of 10 times using explorer, sometimes the task manager, and sometimes browsers and other programs. is there other things he can do to lessen the occurances of this problem?

Hi,

For Windows 7 especially, go into Explorer and disable thumbnails and the preview pane. You will find not only will it reduce these problems, but accessing files is much speedier.

"Not Responding" errors are, by their very nature, mysterious. If a shutdown/restart cycle clears them, and is not needed on a very frequent basis, that is my suggested fix. I get "not responding" not infrequently, particularly with web browsers, but sometimes with task manager and file explorer (Windows Explorer in 7 and earlier).

If it's really, really frequent, then something's likely amiss with Windows itself and repairs to Windows should be done in an attempt to fix it.

Alt + U does toggle it as I said, but if you want to check if it's on or not in the first place pressing the Alt key and arrowing left twice will give you that info. I actually think it might be on by default so it's something everybody who uses Office 365 should check since having this on to me is not worth it.

Hi Steve,

Have you checked if the "Coming Soon" feature in Outlook is turned off?
When you are in your Inbox press the Alt key to bring up the ribbon menu, you should be on "Home", now left arrow twice, here is Jaws History:

I press the Alt key and here this:
Upper Ribbon, Ribbon, Home Tab, Alt followed by H I press the left arrow once and here this:
Leaving menus, File Tab Button, Alt followed by F I press the left arrow a second time and here this:
Ribbon Tabs Tab expanded, Turn on features coming soon Button, Alt followed by U

As you can see Alt followed by U is the shortcut, but that will just toggle it and not tell you if it's on or off.
If it says " Turn on features coming soon" then it is off and your problem is a different one.
But if you hear Turn off features coming soon Button checked" then it is on and you can turn this off by pressing the spacebar.
Note that whether you turn it on or off Jaws will focus on an "OK" button and the message which it seems you can only read with the touch cursor is simply this:

You must restart this application for the changes to take effect.
OK

So go ahead and press OK, then close Outlook completely, wait a few seconds and reopen it, now try to see if you can read those fields with the shortcut keys.
I suggest this should be turned off, if it is on you may get upcoming features which could cause issues like this before Vispero and/or Microsoft has time to make any necessary changes.
I certainly also don't have any issues with Alt + 1, Alt + 2 and so on reading the From, To, CC etc. Fields.

Best regards,
Sieghard

I am able to read the sender information with alt and number keys without any issues.
Please verify the focus once the message opens.
if the focus is on the message and if you are not able to read the information with the alt and number keys, then, there might some issues with the jaws.

Re: need help unmuting volume

Shankar C
 

hi,
just a trick,
if you feel that, the volume got muted, open the run dialogue and type
the command, "sndvol" and press enter and wait for 2 to 3 seconds.
now, the volume tray opens, just press the home key. the volume will
be raized.
note: in this process, do not press any key other than the home key
once the volume tray opens. if you press tab or shift tab, there might
be a chances of shifting your focus.

Hi, Jed. Another way besides INSERT plus ESCAPE to unmute JAWS is simply to
restart the computer. When JAWS comes up, if the computer has been muted, or
the volume has been turned down all the way, JAWS will automatically unmute
the computer, and turn up the volume enough so that you may hear how to get
to the volume and raise it further. It is not necessary in this instance to
use JAWS key and ESCAPE to unmute. It happens automatically when JAWS
starts.

Joseph,

           If the intent is simply to move an existing Windows 10 installation from one drive to another, and gain space in the process, there is no need for either a new Windows 10 license nor to install Windows 10 using same.

          Since the Win10 digital license is tied to the motherboard, you can swap out system components other than the motherboard at will (and can even change that out were it to fail, but MS has a specific procedure for re-licensing under that special condition).

           If you want to move an existing installation to a larger drive, I'd just clone the existing system drive to the new, larger one.   Some cloning software actually will allow you to expand the existing partition or partitions into the new free space as part of that process, others won't.  If the latter is the case, then you'd have to do the repartitioning to expand your existing partition or partitions into the new free space and/or move them around after the clone.

installed by PC Audio Labs, the company that makes the computer I have
it on. I used to have Yuuguu (I think I spelled that right), which is
both a screen sharing and chat software, but that one wasn't exactly
screenreader friendly.












Re: outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019, seems to be a new bug

I fear that a lot things will get fixed in Outlook 365 and not in the retail version. A bit unfair to us who cannot use 365 at work. Things like the fixes for PowerPoint are a good example.

Well, pressing alt+u results in a “ding” sound; indicating that no action could be taken.  And, the “try” command thing remains.  I am not using the subscription version of Outlook; that is, Office 360.  I am indeed using Outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019.

Not for me, if I press the alt key and focus is on the Home menu all I have to do is arrow left twice and it will either say Turn on features coming soon or Turn off features coming soon checked.

Are you maximized? I guess you can try Alt + U and see what happens, it’s a toggle so if things change for the worse just press it again.

I assume you are talking about the subscription version of Outlook and not the retail version?

Hi Sieghard!

 

Your below is interesting.  However, for me when I follow these steps I end up hearing a series of "try" commands.  What are those?  I do not hear the option button about new features.  I wonder if my hearing these "try" commands means that I have the new features option turned-on?  Perhaps an alt+u would toggle them off?  What do you think?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Steve,

 

Have you checked if the "Coming Soon" feature in Outlook is turned off?

When you are in your Inbox press the Alt key to bring up the ribbon menu, you should be on "Home", now left arrow twice, here is Jaws History:

 

I press the Alt key and here this:

Upper Ribbon, Ribbon, Home Tab, Alt followed by H I press the left arrow once and here this:

Leaving menus, File Tab Button, Alt followed by F I press the left arrow a second time and here this:

Ribbon Tabs Tab expanded, Turn on features coming soon Button, Alt followed by U

 

As you can see Alt followed by U is the shortcut, but that will just toggle it and not tell you if it's on or off.

If it says " Turn on features coming soon" then it is off and your problem is a different one.

But if you hear Turn off features coming soon Button checked" then it is on and you can turn this off by pressing the spacebar.

Note that whether you turn it on or off Jaws will focus on an "OK" button and the message which it seems you can only read with the touch cursor is simply this:

 

You must restart this application for the changes to take effect.

OK

 

So go ahead and press OK, then close Outlook completely, wait a few seconds and reopen it, now try to see if you can read those fields with the shortcut keys.

I suggest this should be turned off, if it is on you may get upcoming features which could cause issues like this before Vispero and/or Microsoft has time to make any necessary changes.

I certainly also don't have any issues with Alt + 1, Alt + 2 and so on reading the From, To, CC etc. Fields.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Hi,

 

Thanks for that.  I'm using the same version, and the message is in focus.  I can manually tab and shift tab to the info, but it is not speaking with the alt and numbers.  The correct script is loading too.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Hi bro,

I am using "Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.10730.20280"

I am able to  read the sender information with alt and number keys without any issues.

Please verify the focus once the message opens.

if the focus is on the message and if you are not able to read the information with the alt and number keys, then, there might some issues with the jaws.
