Hi. Do i can install talkback, and backup installed apps, for
reinstalling system, or share with another friedns? Thanks, and best
regards.

the arrow keys tend to take off and keep going even when you don't want

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.

Silencing Certain Keys

Steve Matzura
 

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?

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).

question

G. Gray
 

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!

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.

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

 

Donna,

        When you open Settings, System, you are initially placed in the left column allowing you to select the pane you want, though I can't know which one yours will open on if you've been there recently.  Up and/or down arrowing should get you to "Notifications and Actions."  You simply tab from there and it will go control by control through the pane.  Of course, you can search for your e-mail client name, Outlook in this case, then tab over to its On/Off toggle, which will probably still be announced as a checkbox.

         Of course, this is predicated on your having the toggle for Get notifications for apps and other senders ON.  If that toggle is off then you do not have access to the individual apps/senders, as you've said that none should be allowed if it's OFF.

Re: Thunderbird: is there a single hot Key to get to the nexe unread message?

 

A simple web search on "Thunderbird Keyboard Shortcuts" turns up Thunderbird Keyboard Shortcuts as the first result under several search engines.

In the Moving between messages section:  Go to next unread message      N        (which, by the way, is annoying because the command is case sensitive and should be lower case.  It is working whether I'm in the message list and wish to jump to the next unread message or have a reading tab open, in which case the next unread message replaces the one I'm currently looking at).

Yes. n and p go to next and previous unread. f and b go to next and previous.

 

You might need to use pass through key in your screen reader. 

There is a way to set up Jaws so you don't need to use pass key through but I haven't used Jaws for a while and don't remember the steps.

I have started researching scanners and would like the list's

Looking on Amazon, there a a lot of scanners to choose from.  I'd like
to keep the cost under $250 unless this isn't reasonable.

All opinions are welcome.

Sharing someone else’s screen is not accessible, no. I’m not even certain that would be if you had JAWS installed on both systems in a remote access configuration—possibly someone else can shed a wee bit more light on that. But no, you’ll have no problem sharing your own screen, but you won’t see someone else’s shared screen.
