This is a really odd one.  I just tried a bunch of copy and paste in a new document in word for office 365, and I had no issues.  I looked in file/account/about and this is the version I have:

Microsoft® Word for Office 365 MSO (16.0.11029.20104)

You might check what version you have and if it is a lower than this see if you can get it updated.

Hi All,

Microsoft Word with Jaws 2019 does not seem to be reading right. Sometimes it lags skipping words, or lines. When I try to copy and paste it does not read to me what is being selected, or it’s on the wrong line trying to select.

 

If I close it down, then restart the program it will read ok for a bit then it goes right back.

Multiple displays is a fairly unusual use case.  You should probably call fs, and I'll bet they tell you that what you are trying to do is not supported.

Hi William,

 

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

From: Mike B.
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
all applications.
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
Audio Ducking on / off.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
Sennt from my iBarstool.

 


From: Soronel Haetir
It is in settings center for me (running win10) but is called "Lower
the volume of other programs while jaws is speaking" and is in the
"User" group. Note that you have to switch to the default profile, it
cannot be set on a per-program basis (but the setting is still
displayed, just can't be changed in the per-program profiles).

You now have 84 options and you can arrow down and set things like the tab key to speak or mute, first letter navigation also works.

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?

I  should not have posted this message. About two minutes after I did that, I remembered how to do it--key labels.

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.

Hello-

 

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!!! (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: question

Van Lant, Robin
 

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.

Hello-

 

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!!! (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!

 

George

Re: question

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.

Re: Silencing Certain Keys

 

If you are talking about Jaws do the following:

Press Jaws Key + 6 for the Settings Centre
Press Control + Shift + D to open the Default Settings
Type "Key Label" in the search field and tab once, arrow down once to "Manage Key Labels" and press the spacebar to open this.
You now have 84 options and you can arrow down and set things like the tab key to speak or mute, first letter navigation also works.

Regards,
Sieghard

Subject: Silencing Certain Keys

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?


Re: Bluestack downloader for Android apps on Windows 10?

A sighted person can install talkback for you.  I suspect the install is system specific, strongly doubt you can just move it to another computer.

I've used the bluestacks emulator a bit.  You will need help getting
talkback installed because Jaws doesn't speak in the app store.  It
speaks a little on the opening screen, but it is best, on my system
anyway, to shut down jaws when running bluestacks. If you don't, then
the arrow keys tend to take off and keep going even when you don't want
them to.  The nice thing is that when you install apps like bard, they
are made as shortcuts on your desktop, this is good because talkback
doesn't talk much in the bluestacks home screen, so you almost need jaws
to be running until you get the app open you want to use.  Yes, it is a
mess, but if you really want to try reading a bard book on your pc, this
is one way to do it.

I suspect it is completely inaccessible, but I thought I’d ask here if
anyone has used it, or tried to anyway.

I don’t want to download stuff willie-nillie, but if no one has, then
maybe I will risk it.

Thanks,
