I read a set of steps to turn on notifications via the settings/system method, but when I get to system I cannot get to the left panel to reach the notifications.

Anyone know how I can turn on notifications in Windows 10 so my Outlook email will be audible when a new one comes in?

I do already have all of the option settings correct in outlook.

Thanks

Repair display driver not working

mark.magennis@...
 

So I got the error message "Freedom Scientific accessibility display driver is not properly installed" and followed the repair instructions which completed okay. Rebooted, launched JAWS 2019 and got the same message. Uninstalled and reinstalled JAWS using new install download, same result.

This appears to have started after I set up my Win 10 laptop to use two external displays. Desktop is extended to both.

Anyone got any ideas what I can do to fix this?

It sounds like Audio Ducking might be turned on.  See if the notes below will help:

Try the following:
1. Open the Settings Center with the keystroke, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row, and press, Control, Shift + D, to open the Settings Center default

2. Down arrow to, User, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Lower audio volume of programs when Jaws speaks, and press the spacebar to uncheck this box.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
This feature can also be tobbled on & off by using a Layered Keystroke.  Press, Insert / Jaws Key + Spacebar, lut up and press the letter, D, to toggle

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Someone asked me the other day how to silence certain keys such as TAB and ENTER. I mistakenly told them to delete the items from KM. I think I got to them in time to tell them that this was the wrong thing to do.
So, is changing it in one of the verbosity settings the right thing to do?

George,

I moved from Window Eyes to JAWS about a year ago, at the same time I upgraded to Windows 10.  The JAWS cursor is somewhat like the Window Eyes cursor, but I am definitely not finding it as useful and terribly miss what I could do with the WE cursor that this one does not.  I heard that some of the limitations of the JAWS cursor are tied to the way apps and interfaces are designed in Windows 10, so you may find more success with it in Win 7, but the mousepad navigation of the WE cursor is not the same for the JAWS cursor.  To complicate things, JAWS also offers the Touch Cursor, which is supposed to work better with some of these newly designed interfaces.  I’m definitely still trying to wrap my head around these both.  The PC cursor in JAWS is just like the primary one in Window Eyes, whatever it was called. 

 

As for your WLM attachments question, I don’t use it, but since it’s a Microsfot project I wonder if this trick would work.  For Outlook, I like to open the File Explore window and copy whatever file I want to attach to an email.  Then, I go to the body of the email message I am composing and hit Control V to paste it an dit adds it.  Maybe this will work in WLM, too.

I am new to the list and new to Jaws 2019 which I recently installed on my Windows 7 computer because my previous DELL XP (which I just loved) crashed!!!  BTW I used the DELL computer for 14 years with no problems, so I got my money’s worth out of it.  I also should add that I am a former Wineyes user.  I am having some difficulty transitioning to Jaws.  OK here’s my questions:

 

1.  I am now using Windows live mail.  I cannot figure out how you attach a file.  Can anyone help?

 

2.  What does the ‘Smart Screen’ item in the start up menu do and should it be on or off?

 

3.  What is the difference between the Jaws RC cursor and the PC cursor?

 

5.  Using Windoweyes there was a command you could use to determine how many lines were in a document...so you could press the key combo and Window eyes would say “line 86 of 258” so you knew how far along you were in a document....Is there such a command with JAWS....and if not, why not!!!

OK...that’s it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.....and a final note I hope my windows 7 computer will last another ten years because I do not want to go to Windows 10 or above....and I am aware updates will stop Jan., 2020!!!  Thanks!

Re: question

Mario
 

George, for question #1, when composing an email in WLM, press alt+i and
then i and a. that'll get you started.

for question #3, the pc cursor follows the system focus such as pressing
the tab key, arrow keys, and other navigation keys. the jaws cursor
allows review of the entire screen without changing where the pc cursor
is on so you can figure out what's on the screen that normally doesn't
speak with the pc cursor active.

for questions #2 &5, somebody will hopefully answer.

2.  What does the ‘Smart Screen’ item in the start up menu do and should it be on or off?
 
3.  What is the difference between the Jaws RC cursor and the PC cursor?
 
5.  Using Windoweyes there was a command you could use to determine how many lines were in a document...so you could press the key combo and Window eyes would say “line 86 of 258” so you knew how far along you were in a document....Is there such a command with JAWS....and if not, why not!!! (grin)
 
OK...that’s it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.....and a final note I hope my windows 7 computer will last another ten years because I do not want to go to Windows 10 or above....and I am aware updates will stop Jan., 2020!!!  Thanks!

Re: accessing WebEx meetings and shared screens

Hello to all who have responded so far:  Thanks for your responses and suggestions. Meetings through WebEx is pretty common place in the business community, and challenging for us JAWS users. I appreciate the accessibility link for sisco. I welcome any other suggestions.

I have been on some WebEx sessions in recent month where JAWS seemed to be voicing powerpoint slides that were displayed, but it’s been a few weeks, so I can say for sure. Tricky thing with screen sharing is that someone could be sharing anything on their end, so there isn’t a way JAWS can just read it. They could be sharing a photo and JAWS would need to be able to OCR that. 

 

I’ve been communicating with a guy named Sean at Cisco who is a JAWS user.  I reached him via the accessibility@... email address.  Here is the link to the Cisco Accessibility webpage. There are a ton of links on the left navigation, so you’ll want to navigate to the Accessibility heading or open the links list and start from the bottom.  There is a link called something like Unified Communication, that I think will take you to WebEx info.

Subject: accessing WebEx meetings and shared screens

 

I have had many occasions to access WebEx meetings and have had no difficulties using JAWS to respond to a meeting invite and sharing my screen. However, I now am encountering difficulties  in accessing a meeting where the screen is shared by someone else in the meeting. I am not able to access the screen and wanted to ask if the screen would not be accessible to me with JAWS. Additionally, if I share my screen, can one of the participants access my screen to provide edits?

Thanks,
Shanti

Re: Turning on notifications in Windows 10 settings

Chris
 

Have you tried tabing down to the outlook notification toggle un settings / system /notifications?

 

 

 

Unless you have turned off get notifications from apps and other senders

Then you wont get any notifications at all

I read a set of steps to turn on notifications via the settings/system method, but when I get to system I cannot get to the left panel to reach the notifications.

Anyone know how I can turn on notifications in Windows 10 so my Outlook email will be audible when a new one comes in?

I do already have all of the option settings correct in outlook.

Thanks

Donna

I don't have JAWS handy, but when NVDA is running these navigation commands for next and previous read and unread messages work just fine.  No pass-through key needed.

jaws 19 and speech in win10

William Windels
 

Hello,

The volume of the speech is changing randomly from low to high and back.

Is this a known issue and is there some workaround/fix?

Kind ragards,

William
