Jaws not talking when tabing through the network section

Maria Reyes
 

Hi I am using Jaws 2018 and Windows 10. When I tab around the network area Jaws doesn't say anything. I just hear tab tab tab. Is this fixable or is this a bug?

After you get into your calendar, try pressing control plus in. You should be able to then schedule your event.

Hello,

 

I’m using Jaws 2018 and Windows10. A few weeks ago I was able to schedule a appointment on my Outlook calendar. I would press control 2 to get to the calendar. I would then press alt and down arrow once time. The first thing would be new. I would press enter and I could enter the necessary information to schedule somethihg. Now the ability to schedule doesn’t show up anywer on the menu. Was something changed? Any thoughts of what key strokes I need to use?

 

Thanks,

Control 2 for calander

Alt h for home in the ribbon

Arrow down once and then right to choose what you wish and hit enter

Tim,

Nope. If you press JAWS+Spacebar, then P and then the Question mark, you
bring up the help menu, which very clearly states you can press the letter A
to scan from your scanner or Pearl camera. Something is broken.

Re: How do I perform a JAWS picture scan?

I just gave it a try with my Pearl camera. Photo under the camera, Press
Jaws+Spacebar then P. Announcement: Picture Smart. So far, so good. Then
press letter A. Announcement "OCR component not installed".

Drat, and double drat.

However, if I use Insert+J to open the JAWS application and scroll down to
the utilities menu and select Picture Smart, and select Scanners and Camera,
which cclaims is available using JAWS+Spacebar, then P then A)
I'm presented with several adjustment options such as Select input device,
light on/off, advanced options, and acquire image.

Very, very different from the JAWS+Spacebar then P approach.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, methinks.

I believe that what is going on is this. With software synthesizers that are internal, there is a way of controlling how much information is sent to the programmed buffer for the synthesizer. Many external synthesizers just receive as much information as possible, and become overwhelmed. That’s why I asked about whether the synthesizer is internal or external, meaning not software only. Try it out if you can with other external synthesizers, and I think you will find that they may all have the problem about not being able to be interrupted at certain times.

Is the Triple-Talk synthesizer a hardware or software synthesizer? If hardware, the question is moot, because external synths work quite differently from software synths. If Triple-Talk is a software synth like Eloquence, it could simply be that Eloquence has programming which keeps its buffers from being overwhelmed in the first place. For example, I quite often hear Eloquence speak long strings of text. If this goes on and on without stopping, Eloquence will develop a lower and lower voice, then suddenly go back to normal, then start the voice lowering process again. I think this is a similar situation where eloquence doesn’t know where to make a break.

My opinion is that this occurs when, for some reason, the computer sends all of its buffered voice output to the synthesizer at once, thus overwhelming the synthesizer so that an interrupt character cannot be sent to it.

I used to notice something like this happening with Vocalizer synth and certain websites, like the main intranet portal of my old work.

Since I switched back to Eloquence for most purposes I haven’t had this happen.

But since you use a Triple Talk and are still getting this (or something like this) issue, it must not be synth-dependent after all.

Hi all,

 

Sorry about the subject line, I got a little carried away…

 

When on certain websites, there are times too regular to be easily over-looked. There is some sort of script, perhaps java, that causes jaws to go into a mode of fast paced character to character read of the said script. I cannot stop it, I cannot move to another open item on my task bar and jaws is simply locked as with the entire computer until this script is finished. Sometimes a hard shutdown of the computer is what is necessary for this to stop.

 

My computer is windows 10 64 bit

Jaws is 2019 latest update

I was using FireFox, this time not an IE issue but this also happens on IE, as well. Firefox is the latest version, as well.

I use a triple-talk synthesizer

 

The website given the latest problem was:

Info.com

I searched for global diabetes statistics and when the results came up, I started at the top and arrowing down a line at a time, I passed over the search button and the script began. I did this a second time to confirm and it happened the same.

 

Is there a setting to stop this? I’ve had this problem since 2015 or possibly earlier but I’ve called the JAWS geniuses and they told me they were aware of the problem and the next version put out would stop it. It has not.

 

So, I look forward to your help…

Subject: scripts causing jaws to uncontrollably read on and on and on and on and on...

 

Hi all,

 

Sorry about the subject line, I got a little carried away…

 

When on certain websites, there are times too regular to be easily over-looked. There is some sort of script, perhaps java, that causes jaws to go into a mode of fast paced character to character read of the said script. I cannot stop it, I cannot move to another open item on my task bar and jaws is simply locked as with the entire computer until this script is finished. Sometimes a hard shutdown of the computer is what is necessary for this to stop.

 

My computer is windows 10 64 bit

Jaws is 2019 latest update

I was using FireFox, this time not an IE issue but this also happens on IE, as well. Firefox is the latest version, as well.

I use a triple-talk synthesizer

 

The website given the latest problem was:

Info.com

I searched for global diabetes statistics and when the results came up, I started at the top and arrowing down a line at a time, I passed over the search button and the script began. I did this a second time to confirm and it happened the same.

 

Is there a setting to stop this? I’ve had this problem since 2015 or possibly earlier but I’ve called the JAWS geniuses and they told me they were aware of the problem and the next version put out would stop it. It has not.

 

So, I look forward to your help…

 

Rick

Thank you!  I was missing the F step.   Great results.

Choose  the picture desire to scan.

 

Press the jaws key plus spacebar plus p plus f.

 

It will take a few seconds but the scan should complete.  Hth

I have heard of the new feature, but cannot find “picture” in the JAWS command search.  Any advice is much appreciated.

I have noticed this anoying behaviour when reading some web sites with lots of numbered graphics.  JAWS will begin reading the seemingly endless strings of numbers and repeatedly pressing the Control key will not stop JAWS.  The voice tone gets lower and lower.

Bill,

 

Triple-Talk is a hardware external synthesizer.

Is the Triple-Talk synthesizer a hardware or software synthesizer? If hardware, the question is moot, because external synths work quite differently from software synths. If Triple-Talk is a software synth like Eloquence, it could simply be that Eloquence has programming which keeps its buffers from being overwhelmed in the first place. For example, I quite often hear Eloquence speak long strings of text. If this goes on and on without stopping, Eloquence will develop a lower and lower voice, then suddenly go back to normal, then start the voice lowering process again. I think this is a similar situation where eloquence doesn’t know where to make a break.

That sounds logical.

I wonder why Eloquence isn’t affected though?

My opinion is that this occurs when, for some reason, the computer sends all of its buffered voice output to the synthesizer at once, thus overwhelming the synthesizer so that an interrupt character cannot be sent to it.

I used to notice something like this happening with Vocalizer synth and certain websites, like the main intranet portal of my old work.

Since I switched back to Eloquence for most purposes I haven’t had this happen.

But since you use a Triple Talk and are still getting this (or something like this) issue, it must not be synth-dependent after all.
