Hi everybody,

yesterday Windows 10 Pro on my desktop pc updated to the last version 1903.
If I'm not wrong the previous one was 1803.

I use Jaws bought the last year. The version is:
Home 2018.1807.8 ILM

My job is transcriber, so the only software I use is Microsoft Word, this is the version:
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016
Microsoft Word version 1806 build 10228.20104

After the Windows update I don't have anymore audio feedback when I navigate a Microsoft Word document word by word, using keyboard shortcut CTRL + Left or Right Arrow.

It works in other text editors, except Microsoft Word.

To be sure it depends from Windows updates I let update also my laptop and again problem appears.

It is quite important for me to understand how to solve, because I need to work.

Thanks a lot for any suggestion.

Hi.

 

Does anyone know if the el-braille is compatable with verizon wireless? I'm trying to activate the device on their network, and for some reason it's not working the way it should. I installed the sim card drivers, and called verizon but they couldn't activate the device. Any help would be awesome.

 

Thanks.

Hi Dan,

 

I think you would have to be a bit more specific as to what is happening on your PC and why you can’t do a repair etc.

“They have major problems with the latest update” would definitely need to be defined more narrowly because as far as I am concerned (and I am on the Jaws beta list and have been using this update for the last 2 weeks) there are certainly no “major problems” which affect all users.

I run Jaws 2019.1907.31 on my laptop at home and on 4 PC’s at work and I have no significant issues on any of them, there were never any installation issues or anything like that.

Also, if there really is an issue with this update, why not simply go back to the Jaws 2019 June update, did you not have Jaws 2019 installed before at all? If you were using Jaws 2019 before this update and it worked there is no reason why you couldn’t go back to that version.

I’m sure if you poked around long enough, you’d find any number of third party add-ons/plug-ins for Chrome and Firefox that can handle RSS. That’s more or less how those browsers work.

That's very interesting.  I used to use the live bookmarks rss reading feature of firefox all the time, until they got rid of it a couple of years ago.  It was great and much easier than internet explorer.  The word built-in, in my opinion means you didn't have to install anything to use it, and that was how firefox used to be, unlike chrome.


The reason they took it out of firefox is they didn't want to spend the money or effort to upgrade and maintain it.  As far as the rest of firefox goes, the bookmarks and menus are still easier to access than chrome and brafe, I still use it on a lot of websites with good success.  Besides, I don't like all my data being siphoned off to google.



Now, for rss I just use the feed reader in thunderbird.  A pain to set up, but it works well.

update and what's new for this release.

32 & 64 Bit Download Link:

What's new:

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the June
2019 update and the August 2019 update.
list of 14 items
. This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was not
reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are experiencing
this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the
Default File, type "start" into the search edit box, and then toggle the
control called:
"Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
. In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when INSERT+SPACEBAR
is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer muted when Speech On
Demand is active.
. Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being found
when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
. When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved an
issue where new attendee information was not being reliably indicated in
either speech or braille.
. Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message headers in
Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working in Windows 7.
. Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after exiting a
Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top of the email
rather than the previous location where you were reading.
. Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting if an
endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though Braille was
correctly identifying the information.
. Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would repeat
the last line of the document after completing a Say All (INSERT+DOWN
ARROW).
. Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a
misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling while
typing"
option in setting Center was disabled.
. In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking incoming
message and call notifications multiple times.
. When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and
Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times for
each character.
. Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted Braille
was not working as expected.
. Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio where
JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
. Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where incorrect
Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille under certain
circumstances.
