And the fact is, Alan, that you still need to know how to do it and actually do it.  And I am insulted, given the amount of material I post that falls into, "I certainly don't have to do it," and, "it takes a darned long time to put it together step-by-step," that insisting that a few extra minutes should be taken before asking questions on a list gets a response like this.  It takes you a bit longer, yes.  So what?  Waiting for replies on a mailing list takes longer.

You, the generic you, have a life situation you must deal with, and in doing so at least attempting to put the least amount of effort on to others, again and again.

I expect any denizen of cyberspace in 2021 to be able to do a basic web search with ease.  Being able to search on "Microsoft {insert program here} keyboard shortcuts" is easy, as is reviewing the results from same.

This isn't about perfection.  It's about putting forth reasonable effort oneself before imposing on the time of over a thousand others.

If you turn on keyboard help in Jaws and press Jaws Key + Shift + R you get the following explanation:

Shift+JAWSKey+R
Replies directly to sender.

But as Tom said, I have never had any luck of this working in any of the mailing lists I am subscribed to.

Control+r just replies to the group unless the group happens to be set to reply to sender, which very few groups I’ve ever belonged to were set that way.

 

As Brian says in another message, if it is a group with groups.io, at the bottom of every message is a link to reply to sender, rather than the group.

 

Otherwise it is a lot of fiddling with the from or reply fields to figure out the person’s direct email.

Would someone please refresh my memory of the JAWS keystroke to reply to a list sender only instead of the list. One of the lists to which I belong is somewhat strict about replying off-list when acknowledging emails (to which I happen to agree) but I can't find the relevant keystroke.

What James described with Control + R and Control + Shift + R does not apply to mailing lists. If you get an email where another person was CC'd you can press Control + R to reply to the original sender or Control + Shift + R (Reply All) which will also include anybody else the email was addressed to.

Brian,

 

While I appreciate your comments about list behavior in a perfect world, the last time I checked, the world wasn’t perfect. The plain fact is that searching for something on the internet or in a set of list archives for someone without sight using a screen reader takes considerably longer than for someone with sight. And since lists with as many members as this one are dynamic with membership constantly changing, you can hardly expect all members to be familiar with previous posts. And using your example of a thousand members, the cumulative time for the entire membership to delete a message assuming a half second each comes to roughly 8 and a third minutes.  I expect most would argue that finding the answer by doing an internet or archive search with a screen reader might take longer than that.

 

For me, I’d appreciate folks posting to use definitive subject lines with considerably more detail and not to see the same person post two or three messages in a row with the same subject. However, I deal with both of these repeatedly on lists so quickly exercising the delete key is what works best for me.

Hi Glenn

Let me know if you'd like any assistance .  I've hosted sites for over 15 years.
When you register and host your own domain, you have the fun of choosing something creative and also practical.  For instance, my favorite domain that I use mainly for shortcuts is jj2k.com. Then you can create whatever email accounts and aliases you like.  The most creative one I've set up for a friend was AV8R (for the aviator).
When you are considering your domain name, my recommendation is to consider the price of the TLD if you go with anything other than the standard .com/.net for $10/year.  I manage a bunch of domains through a wholesale registrar so that I can pass on the savings. Two of the cheapest right now are .email and .today at $2/year.
Once you choose a domain, the next consideration is whether you just want to hook up email or if you also want to include hosting for a website. That will influence what service is best.
Cheers, Jeremy

As James said, such custom domains are really no different from those a business would get and there are a gazillion different dot extensions available now, gone are the days when it used to be .com, .net., .org and of course the various country ones like .ca for Canada, .de for "Deutschland" (Germany) etc.

Now you have things like .store, .biz, .TV, .info, .family, .sexy and many more.

My ISP will soon be discontinuing eMail service, and although I think that is a mistake on their part, because my eMail account has been the only thing tying me to them, I'm never the less going to have to get a new eMail provider, probably Outlook.com.

But before I definitely go that route, I want to know how someone gets an eMail address like first@..., or another extension.

Hoping I can do this fairly easily.

Sometimes JAWS seems to just stop when using a Bluetooth speaker and seems to swap to a different sound device.

Don’t think it is JAWS but possibly Windows.

If you go in to JAWS, utilities and sound cards, you can change the device but sometimes the name of the sound device doesn’t seem to relate to the one I would expect e.g. the Realtek Sound device being the laptop internal speakers will send JAWS output to the Bluetooth speaker.

You click on the Bluetooth speaker name and JAWS goes to the internal laptop speakers.

Yup.  And that's because it's really not supposed to and the emailing lists "rig it" that any default reply is to the list.

It generally requires sleuthing in the message header or using something like the Groups.io Reply to Sender link at the end of messages to reliably direct something privately back to the message's sender.

And I realize that there is some percentage that's small, but still significant, that for some reason does not have a Reply to Sender link at the end, and this seems to have something to do with whether the originator is forcing plain-text messages, but neither I, nor the person who runs Groups.io, have ever found out exactly what nor a way that Groups.io itself can work around this.  That's why I strongly suggest sticking with HTML format in your email, as I've not seen it missing then.

A safer way to reply to a sender if the link is not there at the bottom is to press Shift + Tab when you are at the beginning of the message until you get to the "From" field, here the sender's address is usually available, just put focus on it either with the PC or Jaws cursor, press the application key or Shift + F10 if you don't hav eone and select copy. This copies the sender's address to the clipboard, you can now press Reply or start a new message, if you reply once again Shift + Tab until you are in the To field, press Control + A to select all and delete, then Control + V to paste the private address into the field.

I just tried this, if the message is not open Jaws just says "Cannot retrieve sender's address" and with the message open it says:

Replying directly to sender
(main@jfw.groups.io via groups.io)

So obvioulsy it is replying to the group just as Control + R does and you either have to use the link at the bottom of the message or go to the "From" field and manually put the Jaws cursor on the address of the person, use the application key and copy it.

Control+r just replies to the group unless the group happens to be set to reply to sender, which very few groups I’ve ever belonged to were set that way.

 

As Brian says in another message, if it is a group with groups.io, at the bottom of every message is a link to reply to sender, rather than the group.

 

Otherwise it is a lot of fiddling with the from or reply fields to figure out the person’s direct email.

Hi all

Would someone please refresh my memory of the JAWS keystroke to reply to a list sender only instead of the list. One of the lists to which I belong is somewhat strict about replying off-list when acknowledging emails (to which I happen to agree) but I can't find the relevant keystroke.

TIA

What James described with Control + R and Control + Shift + R does not apply to mailing lists. If you get an email where another person was CC'd you can press Control + R to reply to the original sender or Control + Shift + R (Reply All) which will also include anybody else the email was addressed to.

I just hit control+r, and as I said, that goes to the group, not the individual.

Hi, it’s just control plus R. If you reply to everyone, it’s control plus Shift R.

Richard,

         Just FYI, the criticism is about the endless repetition of questions that have been asked untold numbers of times in this group, already, as well as having the answers readily available "straight from the horse's mouth" after doing a 2-second web search.

          Your formatting these things into a more easily screen-reader-user friendly format is a kindness, and not subject to any criticism from me.

          I still decry the fact that on almost every blind-tech related group I frequent that it's considered A-OK by far too many to treat them as their own personal Q&A group for commonly available information.  Messages, including this one, on this group, will land in over one thousand inboxes.  It's actually rude and lazy to ask for any Microsoft Keyboard Shortcuts list by bugging over a thousand people for something one can, and should, locate independently in less time than it takes to send a message.

           And I'll get plenty of private messages after this one either agreeing wholeheartedly with me, or calling me "mean" for speaking the plain truth.  I wish those who send me the former would speak up in public, and the latter I ignore.  We're all adults here, and the basic rules of netiquette apply to all of us, and a huge one of those when it comes to a mailing list is not asking "simple questions" that you (the generic you) absolutely know have been answered literally thousands of times on thousands of venues and where finding those answers independently is dirt simple.

moderated Re: Multiple versions for Jaws

 

And there is one more thing I would like to add. While it is OK to have multiple versions of Jaws on the system, I don't see any reason to keep versions beyond maybe the one previous to the current one and especially not versions like Jaws 18 which don't even fully support the current version of Windows 10 any more. Personally as soon as I am happy with the current build after it comes out I remove the previous version of course leaving shared components, if I ever had any reason to use it then it's a matter of a few minutes to download it (you could even keep the latest installer in your downloads folder) and to reinstall it.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Hi Kevin,

 

1st here's a link to the Narrator keystrokes / commands:

 

 

Personally I've never heard of the error message you received.  Have you tried rebooting  your computer again?  The only thing I can think of that might have happened when removing J18 is that it unauthorized all installed Jaws versions.  When you uninstalled J18 did you happen to uninstall, Shared Components?  If you uninstalled the shared components then I could understand this happening, but since I've never experienced this problem I don't know what sort of message would be received.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hello, For the last month or so Jaws 2021 has been crashing. FS support has given me many suggestions of how to correct the problem. Nothing works. I mentioned that I have Jaws 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018 and Jaws18. They told me to uninstall all versions and reinstall Jaws 2021. Yesterday I uninstalled all of Jaws 18. I didn’t uninstall any other versions. I turned on my laptop this morning and Jaws2021 didn’t load. I went into Narrator and the message on the screen said Jaws needs to run with inspect. Therefore I need to contact FS sales. Okay what did I do to cause this problem? Will uninstall all other versions and then reinstalling Jaws2021 work? I tried to do a repair on Jaws 2021 and I got the same message. I hardly use Narrator. Does anyone have short cut keys to use Narrator?

 

Thanks, Kevin

I would strongly encourage you to follow Dan's advice, load Narrator and uninstall all versions of Jaws and once done go into Apps and Features one last time and check if there is anything left that says "Freedom Scientific". If so remove it as well, then download the latest Jaws 2021 installer and reinstall Jaws. If you are having difficulties and don't have sighted help you could always try Microsoft Accessibility or Aira, I believe Aira has a deal with Jaws to provide help beyond the free 5 minutes, but you would have to confirm with their agent. Both Microsoft Accessibility and Aira have the ability to connect to your computer and help, of course you probably still have to use Narrator to establish the connection.Dan is correct,

Hi,

  Did you leave “Shared components” when un installing older versions?

IF you took out “shared components” this most likely is issue.

If this were me I would remove all versions and do a clean install of 2021.

Narrator should be able to work you through the process.

On a side note JAWS and Word , latest versions, causes JAWS to crash more often than before.

Brian, of course, you are correct.

 

However, having them in an easy to read file with a screen reader is far superior to having to deal with a web site and such when you can simply open a document/spreadsheet and have it for reference while you are using Edge.

 

Much cleaner and more direct for screen reader users.

 

I enjoy putting such information into a more user friendly document and making it available so everyone isn’t having to reinvent the wheel.

 

Just my 2¢ worth.

Every time I see a query such as this it makes me wonder why.  Microsoft is about as rock-solid consistent about documenting keyboard shortcuts for every product they release, and keeping those up to date.

Every blessed one of these web searches on "Microsoft Edge keyboard shortcuts" turns up Microsoft's very own page for same as the first item in most of them, or at the top of their actual web search results if they show ads or "featured items" first.  And it's always accurate, comprehensive, and up to date:

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Microsoft+Edge+Keyboard+Shortcuts 

https://www.google.com/search?q=Microsoft+Edge+keyboard+shortcuts 

https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Microsoft+Edge+keyboard+shortcuts 

https://www.bing.com/search?q=Microsoft+Edge+keyboard+shortcuts 

https://yandex.com/search/?text=Microsoft%20Edge%20keyboard%20shortcuts 

The most direct route to keyboard shortcuts for any Microsoft program is a web search on Microsoft, the program name, and keyboard shortcuts.
