Hi Tim,
 
You're wanting the list of schemes. The keystroke to bring up the list of schemes is, Insert, Alt + S.  Arrow to the scheme you want and press enter to switch to that scheme.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

How do I get into that list of options?  Word Classic is one, and I want to set to that.  Any advice?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "that feature" and "all that font information."

In most Microsoft programs in the Office Suite where the font can be selected (whether you have selected text you wish to modify, or just to reset the font you want to use from the current insertion point forward) is the Home Ribbon (ALT+H).  The Font Face itself is FF following the previously mentioned key combo and the Font Size is FS.

I usually select the part of the file I want to change, move the jaws cursor to the font name near the top of the screen, and type the name of the font I want.  Same with the font size.

 

For a new file I will enter a couple of blank lines, select and change as above.  Enter new text between the lines

And delete the blank lines.

 

I usually get lost when trying to use the ribbon to select a font.

Hi,


Does the hotkey alt+shift+l no longer work to list all misspelled words using the latest versions of Word and JFW? Each time I try it, Word crashes then restarts.


Thanks,

Howdy Shirley,
 
I'm not sure which version of Windows 10 introduced the Emoji panel, but I never played around with it until Windows 10, 1903  OS Build 18362.145.  I do
know you can't access the Emoji panel with Jaws2018, or at least I can't on my computer, but I can with Jaws2019.  To access the Emoji panel use, Windows key + semicolon, or, Windows key + period.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Yes, but which version of Windows 10, there is no issue if you are still on 1809, it is after installing 1903 where Jaws doesn’t announce the opening of the emoji panel.

I have confirmed this with several people on the Jaws Beta list and filed a bug report about it today. It’s not that big of a deal and I’m sure it can be fixed without too much trouble.

Hi Peter,

 

You didn’t say which screenreader you use, but if you use Jaws then for me also Jaws says nothing about the emoji panel opening, but it opens nonetheless and if I press right arrow or down arrow Jaws will announce whichever emoji you might be on.

I am on the Jaws Beta list and I will file a bug report, I also feel Jaws should say “Emoji Panel” or something like this to indicate it is open.

Brian, there seems to be very little delay for me, I will have to ask a sighted person to watch, but if I press Windows + Period and immediately press enter as fast as I can the 😊emoji is already inserted.

Interestingly enough just now Jaws is telling me “Emoji panel is closed” when I press Windows + Period, but when I arrow around I hear emojis and I can insert them by pressing enter. There is obviously something strange going on how Jaws gets information there, but like I said, I’ll file a bug report.

It can be slow to appear after the keyboard shortcut is issued.  And that's even when there's not a screen reader involved.  I have no idea why this is.

To make sure it's a settings issue you can run J2019 in its default settings by doing the following:

Hold down the, Insert key, then press the, spacebar, to activate the layered keystroke feature then press the letter, Z.  This will temporarily bypass
your settings and put Jaws into it's factory default settings mode.  This keystroke is a toggle so, press the key combination sequence again to go back
to your personal settings.
 
Temporary bypass using current User Settings and use JAWS factory default = Z.

I’m using windows10 and office 2016. I have tried to bring up the emoji menu with jaws2018 and 2019. Both times the menu comes up and jaws just says menu. I have tried to tab and arrow and nothing is said. After tabbing I will just press enter. A few times it tells me the name of an emoji. Most of the time Jaws doesn’t say anything. Do I need to do something else within Jaws to get it to work? Why would it work for some and not for others?

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1906.10 (June 2019)

 

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the April 2019 update and the June 2019 update.

 

To download the latest release, visit the 

Downloads web page.

You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

 

Enhance Support for Accessing Comments and Revisions in Braille

 

For users who primarily use braille when navigating Word documents, the following changes greatly improve the experience when attempting to access various

document features like comments, revisions, footnotes, and endnotes from the braille display.

 

When the cursor is on a comment, the letter C is now displayed in the last status cell. In addition, as with previous versions, R is still displayed to

indicate revised text, and if Track Changes in Word is configured to display all markup, the letters i and r will be displayed to indicate inserted text

and the letters d and r will be displayed to show deleted text.

 

As you read a document, text to which a comment has been applied, text revisions, and footnote and endnote references are underlined using dots 7 and 8

in the main document pane. Pressing a cursor router twice quickly on the underlined text displays a flash message containing details about the comment,

revision, footnote or endnote. For example, if you press a cursor router on a revision that includes deleted text, JAWS and Fusion displays a message telling

you that the following text has been deleted, and shows the deleted text. Pressing INSERT+TAB while the cursor is on commented text, text revision, footnote

or endnote reference will speak this information as well.

 

If you press a cursor router twice quickly on any text in the document not underlined in braille, then only font and attribute information such as bold,

italic, and underline is displayed. This is similar info to what is spoken when pressing INSERT+F.

 

Support for Reading Math Content in Kindle Books

 

You can now use JAWS and Fusion to study math equations included in Kindle books opened in the Amazon Kindle for PC app using both speech and braille.

For braille users, math expressions are shown using the Nemeth braille code, which is a system exclusive to English.

 

Reading math in the Kindle app works very similar to accessing math on web pages. When you encounter Math content in a Kindle book, JAWS describes the

expression, followed by the message "math content." If you are using a braille display and JAWS is configured for one of the English Contracted Braille

modes, the message "Math" is displayed followed by the expression.

 

Pressing ENTER while focused on the math content opens the Math Viewer where you can explore the expression in greater detail in both speech and braille

by doing the following:

 

• To move between parts of the expression, use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys.

• To focus in on a partial expression, press DOWN ARROW.

• To return to the whole expression, press UP ARROW.

• To read all the partial expressions at the current nesting level, press INSERT+UP ARROW.

• To read the current partial expression, press NUM PAD 5 or INSERT+NUM PAD 5.

• From within the Math Viewer, press ESC or ALT+F4 to exit.

 

Notepad++ Support

 

This popular free open-source editor offers productivity features for people editing everything from HTML to JavaScript and Python. Some key improvements

include:

 

• If line numbers are being shown, JAWS speaks them and shows them in braille.

• JAWS speaks and brailles autocomplete suggestions.

• Contracted braille input works properly.

 

Support for the PuTTY and SecureCRT Emulators

 

PuTTY is free and widely used at colleges for connecting to Linux machines. SecureCRT is not free but offers additional features when connecting to remote

hosts. Both are well supported with the latest JAWS update.

 

Changed How JAWS works with the Access Bridge for Java Applications

 

Now that Oracle has changed the licensing terms for the Standard Edition of the Java Platform, many customers are looking for alternatives. One of these

alternatives is the 

AdoptOpenJDK.

 

Previously, JAWS would only load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from the Windows System32 directory. This worked with the Oracle Java Runtime Environment

because it always installed the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in that location. The alternative Java Runtime Environments do not install the WindowsAccessBridge

DLL in that location.

 

JAWS has been modified so that it uses three different strategies for locating the WindowsAccessBridge DLL.

 

1. The path to the WindowsAccessBridge DLL can be specified by the Windows Registry. It looks for a registry entry named WindowsAccessBridgeDllPath in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common. If the registry entry exists

and the file indicated by the registry entry exists, JAWS will load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from that location.

2. If strategy 1 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the Windows System32 directory.

3. If strategy 2 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the directories listed in the PATH environment variable.

 

Other Changes

• In Adobe Acrobat Reader, resolved a reported issue where the virtual buffer was empty after opening a PDF document and the Adobe options to "Enable Protected

Mode at startup" and "Run in AppContainer" were selected.

• Resolved issues where Fusion and ZoomText (Utilities Shortcuts) would remain in Start Menu searches, even after uninstalling the software.

• Addressed known issues where it was sometimes necessary to configure JAWS to use the classic settings for some retail versions of Office 2016 and 2019

in order for certain features like spellcheck and autocomplete to work as expected.

• When the cursor is on a revision in a document such as inserted or deleted text as well as a comment, pressing INSERT+TAB now speaks additional details

about the revised text.

• Similar to Word, if you move the cursor to AutoCorrected text in an editable message in Outlook, JAWS now speaks the message about pressing the Office

command, ALT+SHIFT+F10, to open the menu of AutoCorrect options.

• In the Outlook Calendar, addressed issues using JAWS with the Schedule View.

• In the most recent updates to Outlook 365, resolved issues where the ALT+1 through 4 commands were not reading message headers and braille was not working

as expected in the To, CC, and BCC fields.

• In applications such as Microsoft Office or the Windows Mail app, when pressing INSERT+5 on the numbers row to check the foreground and background colors,

JAWS now says "default" if no explicit text or background colors are set.

• Resolved a reported issue where the setting to allow web application reserved keystrokes was not working in Chrome. When this option is enabled in Settings

Center or Quick Settings, JAWS keystrokes that are also defined as keyboard shortcuts on certain websites like Facebook are passed directly to the web

application instead of performing the JAWS command.

• When composing a message in GMail using Chrome, addressed an issue where a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) was not working.

• Removed extraneous "clickable" announcements when reading various web pages in Chrome.

• Updated the Keyboard Help and Commands Search descriptions for the INSERT+A keystroke to correctly state that when pressed twice quickly in Chrome or

Firefox, the address of the current web page is displayed in the Virtual Viewer. Note that you can press ALT+D in all browsers to move focus to the address

bar to enter a website address.

• If you encounter an element on a web page with a defined ARIA controls relationship, JAWS will no longer say "use JAWSKEY+ALT+M to move to controlled

element" by default. In most cases, the target of the controls relationship is adjacent to the element or does not provide any useful information.

• When domain-specific scripts such as Google Docs are loaded and INSERT+Q is pressed twice quickly to display information in the Virtual Viewer, resolved

a reported issue where the wrong configuration information was displayed.

• If focus is in a web dialog box in Chrome and you perform an action that opens a second dialog box, resolved an issue where focus was not automatically

placed into the new dialog box.

• Resolved an issue introduced with a change in the April Update, where group names in the Windows Start menu and Windows Explorer were not being shown

correctly in braille.

• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.9.0.

• Addressed a reported issue in Thunderbird 60 where JAWS was skipping text in some messages.

• Added a new Dictionary entry for "S M E) without the spaces so that JAWS and Fusion will correctly pronounce "Subject Matter Expert."

Hi, Norma. Probably the best way to restore JAWS to the default settings is to rerun the JAWS installer for your particular version. Then do a JAWS repair.

 

If you have trouble doing this, I will send you a message off list with my number, and you can give me a call. I will walk you through it. I hope this helps you.

moderated JAWS J2019.1906.10 June Update + What's new

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this June update.
 
64 & 32 Bit:
 
 

What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1906.10 (June 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the April 2019 update and the June 2019 update.
 
To download the latest release, visit the
Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
 
Enhance Support for Accessing Comments and Revisions in Braille
 
For users who primarily use braille when navigating Word documents, the following changes greatly improve the experience when attempting to access various
document features like comments, revisions, footnotes, and endnotes from the braille display.
 
When the cursor is on a comment, the letter C is now displayed in the last status cell. In addition, as with previous versions, R is still displayed to
indicate revised text, and if Track Changes in Word is configured to display all markup, the letters i and r will be displayed to indicate inserted text
and the letters d and r will be displayed to show deleted text.
 
As you read a document, text to which a comment has been applied, text revisions, and footnote and endnote references are underlined using dots 7 and 8
in the main document pane. Pressing a cursor router twice quickly on the underlined text displays a flash message containing details about the comment,
revision, footnote or endnote. For example, if you press a cursor router on a revision that includes deleted text, JAWS and Fusion displays a message telling
you that the following text has been deleted, and shows the deleted text. Pressing INSERT+TAB while the cursor is on commented text, text revision, footnote
or endnote reference  will speak this information as well.
 
If you press a cursor router twice quickly on any text in the document not underlined in braille, then only font and attribute information such as bold,
italic, and underline is displayed. This is similar info to what is spoken when pressing INSERT+F.
 
Support for Reading Math Content in Kindle Books
 
You can now use JAWS and Fusion to study math equations included in Kindle books opened in the Amazon Kindle for PC app using both speech and braille.
For braille users, math expressions are shown using the Nemeth braille code, which is a system exclusive to English.
 
Reading math in the Kindle app works very similar to accessing math on web pages. When you encounter Math content in a Kindle book, JAWS describes the
expression, followed by the message "math content." If you are using a braille display and JAWS is configured for one of the English Contracted Braille
modes, the message "Math" is displayed followed by the expression.
 
Pressing ENTER while focused on the math content opens the Math Viewer where you can explore the expression in greater detail in both speech and braille
by doing the following:
 
list of 6 items
• To move between parts of the expression, use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys.
• To focus in on a partial expression, press DOWN ARROW.
• To return to the whole expression, press UP ARROW.
• To read all the partial expressions at the current nesting level, press INSERT+UP ARROW.
• To read the current partial expression, press NUM PAD 5 or INSERT+NUM PAD 5.
• From within the Math Viewer, press ESC or ALT+F4 to exit.
list end
 
Notepad++ Support
 
This  popular free open-source editor offers productivity features for people editing everything from HTML to JavaScript and Python. Some key improvements
include:
 
list of 3 items
• If line numbers are being shown, JAWS speaks them and shows them in braille.
• JAWS speaks and brailles autocomplete suggestions.
• Contracted braille input works properly.
list end
 
Support for the PuTTY and SecureCRT Emulators
 
PuTTY is free and widely used at colleges for connecting to Linux machines. SecureCRT is not free but offers additional features when connecting to remote
hosts. Both are well supported with the latest JAWS update.
 
Changed How JAWS works with the Access Bridge for Java Applications
 
Now that Oracle has changed the licensing terms for the Standard Edition of the Java Platform, many customers are looking for alternatives. One of these
alternatives is the
AdoptOpenJDK.
 
Previously, JAWS would only load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from the Windows System32 directory. This worked with the Oracle Java Runtime Environment
because it always installed the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in that location. The alternative Java Runtime Environments do not install the WindowsAccessBridge
DLL in that location.
 
JAWS has been modified so that it uses three different strategies for locating the WindowsAccessBridge DLL.
 
list of 3 items
1. The path to the WindowsAccessBridge DLL can be specified by the Windows Registry. It looks for a registry entry named WindowsAccessBridgeDllPath in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common. If the registry entry exists
and the file indicated by the registry entry exists, JAWS will load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from that location.
2. If strategy 1 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the Windows System32 directory.
3. If strategy 2 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the directories listed in the PATH environment variable.
list end
 
Other Changes
list of 19 items
• In Adobe Acrobat Reader, resolved a reported issue where the virtual buffer was empty after opening a PDF document and the Adobe options to "Enable Protected
Mode at startup" and "Run in AppContainer" were selected.
• Resolved issues where Fusion and ZoomText (Utilities Shortcuts) would remain in Start Menu searches, even after uninstalling the software.
• Addressed known issues where it was sometimes necessary to configure JAWS to use the classic settings for some retail versions of Office 2016 and 2019
in order for certain features like spellcheck and autocomplete to work as expected.
• When the cursor is on a revision in a document such as inserted or deleted text as well as a comment, pressing INSERT+TAB now speaks additional details
about the revised text.
• Similar to Word, if you move the cursor to AutoCorrected text in an editable message in Outlook, JAWS now speaks the message about pressing the Office
command, ALT+SHIFT+F10, to open the menu of AutoCorrect options.
• In the Outlook Calendar, addressed issues using JAWS with the Schedule View.
• In the most recent updates to Outlook 365, resolved issues where the ALT+1 through 4 commands were not reading message headers and braille was not working
as expected in the To, CC, and BCC fields.
• In applications such as Microsoft Office or the Windows Mail app, when pressing INSERT+5 on the numbers row to check the foreground and background colors,
JAWS now says "default" if no explicit text or background colors are set.
• Resolved a reported issue where the setting to allow web application reserved keystrokes was not working in Chrome. When this option is enabled in Settings
Center or Quick Settings, JAWS keystrokes that are also defined as keyboard shortcuts on certain websites like Facebook are passed directly to the web
application instead of performing the JAWS command.
• When composing a message in GMail using Chrome, addressed an issue where a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) was not working.
• Removed extraneous "clickable" announcements when reading various web pages in Chrome.
• Updated the Keyboard Help and Commands Search descriptions for the INSERT+A keystroke to correctly state that when pressed twice quickly in Chrome or
Firefox, the address of the current web page is displayed in the Virtual Viewer. Note that you can press ALT+D in all browsers to move focus to the address
bar to enter a website address.
• If you encounter an element on a web page with a defined ARIA controls relationship, JAWS will no longer say "use JAWSKEY+ALT+M to move to controlled
element" by default. In most cases, the target of the controls relationship is adjacent to the element or does not provide any useful information.
• When domain-specific scripts such as Google Docs are loaded and INSERT+Q is pressed twice quickly to display information in the Virtual Viewer, resolved
a reported issue where the wrong configuration information was displayed.
• If focus is in a web dialog box in Chrome and you perform an action that opens a second dialog box, resolved an issue where focus was not automatically

• Resolved an issue introduced with a change in the April Update, where group names in the Windows Start menu and Windows Explorer were not being shown
correctly in braille.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.9.0.
• Addressed a reported issue in Thunderbird 60 where JAWS was skipping text in some messages.
• Added a new Dictionary entry for "S M E) without the spaces so that JAWS and Fusion will correctly pronounce "Subject Matter Expert."
