That may be because, on some laptop computers, when the battery gets lower, Power Saver mode kicks in, and your processor slows down.

Well, I’ve solved, or at least partially explained my Jaws sluggishness issue.

 

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

 

It’s rather strange, I know.

I’m using JAWS 18 and Outlook 13; experience similar, if not worse, issues.  Includes Sluggishness, and getting thrown out of Outlook when attempting to  open emails by pressing enter.  Also, this morning, when I’d tab or shift tab, within message, to get to an attachment, JAWS would just go completely silent on me for at least thirty seconds and when returning, had lost focus.kept

I use the email client, not web mail, which, I’m told by  our IT guy, is the reason for my issues.  I prefer to use Outlook email client, the web mail is more difficult to navigate, in my opinion.

Subject: Problem With Jaws Sluggishness With Outlook E-mail

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ½ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

Real Speak voices disappeared

Mario
 

A friend of mine has a computer running Windows 7 with JAWS 17, and has
the Real Speak voices installed for when he wants to use a male voice
for when he uses the keyboard and a female voice for everything else.
but the weird thing is when setting up a profile, the Real Speak voices
aren't listed. another problem is he can choose the Eloquence profile
but none of the voices are listed either.

would reinstalling the Real Speak voices be the thing to do, or is a
JAWS repair in order?

Well, mine is a Dell laptop.

 

I forget the model number, but it is a gaming unit with 16 gigs of ram, which is why I was surprised to find the battery as the cause of this morning’s sluggishness problem.

Some laptops use different processor speed settings for battery versus ac power to make the battery run longer on a charge.  Some do this using the typical power app in control panel, processor speed can be changed in the advanced settings.  Other laptops use their own proprietary program.

I am ready to do my 2018 taxes and want to use the cd of Turbotax 2018 Home and Business.  Is it workable with Jaws 2019?  I’d like to know this before buying the program.  Also I have heard that quicken and quick books have not been accessible with Jaws in the past...is this still true?   Finally can anyone on the list tell about a simple program that works with Jaws to sort expenses for tax time.  I used to use Home Management software, but that company no longer offers product.  I could sort expenses into categories like

1.  real estate taxes

2.  electric

3.  Professional expenses

 

etc.  Thanks for any help!

Dan:

 

After I think an update has occurred, I always make sure the folder pane is set to normal, and the reading pane is set to off in Outlook.

 

I’m told that the “to do” bar should also be turned off, but haven’t figured out how to do that yet.

Hi,

  After a Windows update or if using Office 365, update some Outlook features can be turned back on and give JAWS some problems.  I have many Outlook features such as “reading pane” turned off.  On occasion after an update this gets restored and I must turn off. 

Just an idea on what might have occurred.

I’m using JAWS 18 and Outlook 13; experience similar, if not worse, issues.  Includes Sluggishness, and getting thrown out of Outlook when attempting to  open emails by pressing enter.  Also, this morning, when I’d tab or shift tab, within message, to get to an attachment, JAWS would just go completely silent on me for at least thirty seconds and when returning, had lost focus.kept

I use the email client, not web mail, which, I’m told by  our IT guy, is the reason for my issues.  I prefer to use Outlook email client, the web mail is more difficult to navigate, in my opinion.

Subject: Problem With Jaws Sluggishness With Outlook E-mail

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ½ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

Danny and all:

 

Well, I’ve solved, or at least partially explained my Jaws sluggishness issue.

 

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

 

It’s rather strange, I know.

Jaws with turbotax and quicken

G. Gray
 

I am ready to do my 2018 taxes and want to use the cd of Turbotax 2018 Home and Business.  Is it workable with Jaws 2019?  I’d like to know this before buying the program.  Also I have heard that quicken and quick books have not been accessible with Jaws in the past...is this still true?   Finally can anyone on the list tell about a simple program that works with Jaws to sort expenses for tax time.  I used to use Home Management software, but that company no longer offers product.  I could sort expenses into categories like
1.  real estate taxes
2.  electric
3.  Professional expenses
 
etc.  Thanks for any help!
Regards,

George

Yes, if you change the word "uploaded" to inserted.  You can add alt text not only to images, but to all sorts of objects, and not only on web pages, but in MS-Word documents, PDF documents, and the list goes on and on.

The exact method for getting it there varies based on the program being used to create the content, but there tends to be similarity in that alt text is always a property of the thing being annotated, and that generally means you're going to find alt text somewhere in a properties dialog.

Re: Adding alt tags to images?

Richard Turner
 

Ann,

If you are interested in the html code for adding alternate text to a graphic image, here is one example without specifying height and width.  If you needed to do that you would add that in before the greater than sign at the end.  Be sure and read the punctuation.

 

<img src="eagle2.jpg" alt="an eagle in flight>

 

If you were adding height and width before the greater than sign you would do something like width=”100” height=”100”

Or whatever would match the image.

Of course, Wordpress probably puts all that in for you, but I don’t use it.

 

HTH,

Richard

Hi,

The Alt tags I am talking about are what is seen by any decent modern screen reader when browsing images ont he web. I have an image to upload, and I'd like to add an alt tag to it since it only currently has a Jaws label, wich is nice for my local Jaws and computer use, but probably won't help anyone else much on the web.

So, would Word be the easiest way for me to add an Alt tag to this image that all oculd read before uploading it? Or would some other tool be better?

Thanks for any advice,
