I don't know if you all know this feature in Jaws.
I just done surfing a Web page that's in UK. 
Jaws has the ability to read this Web page in UK Daniel.Check it out.

Re: Removing focus from a particular icon on the desktop

Try ctrl+spacebar to select / deselect

Subject: Removing focus from a particular icon on the desktop

 

Hi all,

 

I am attempting to create a shortcut on my windows 10 desktop. The

directions say to remove focus from a particular icon and move it to

the desktop either F5 or alt spacebar should work. But when I try

these key combos then use jaws key plus tab to verify, I find focus is

still on the icon where I started. I seem to be unable to move to the

desktop itself.

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks,

Kim

Press ctrl+space. That focuses on the desktop as a whole rather than on any icon.

Tom,

           Under Firefox, CTRL+SHIFT+B brings up the bookmarks manager (which, oddly enough, has the window title "Library").  The structure of the Bookmark Manager is very, very much like File Explorer.

           If you don't happen to open with it in the "From Internet Explorer" list of bookmarks, then Shift+Tab back over to the tree view, get yourself to that group, then tab back over in to the actual bookmarks list for that group.  Locate the bookmark for the page you need to edit.  Since I have no idea what you've called it or how it's stored I can't get more specific about what to search for.  Once you've landed on it, you can then hit Tab and start moving through the edit boxes for a bookmark:

  1. Name
  2. Location (the URL itself)
  3. Tags
  4. Keyword

I have never bothered with tags or keyword.  You will, of course, want to select all in the Location edit box and paste in the corrected URL.  There is no save button.  Just make sure to tab out of the field you've edited to make sure it "sticks" and you can then ALT+F4 to close the Bookmarks Manager window.

Re: Papenmeier Braillex EL prevents jaws from detecting other braille displays

Delaunay Christophe
 

Hi Richard,

 

Many thanks for your fast response. Here is the workaround I could find if I want to easily go for a meeting:

 

Jaws is configured with the VarioUltra as default braille display. With such a configuration, if the VU is plugged in at the time jaws is started, or even after, it will be detected. The good thing is that if the PC is on my desk and the Braillex is plugged in while the Varioultra is unplugged, it is detected and used as the “current braille display”.

 

Problem is that if I unplug the Braillex, Varioultra cannot be used as “current braille display” until I restart Jaws.

 

In other words, I can swith from Varioultra to Braillex by simply unplugging the Varioultra and then plugging the Braillex. However, I cannot switch back from Braillex to VarioUltra by unplugging the Braillex and then plugging the Varioultra.

 

Hope I was clearer this time. Many thanks. Have a nice week-end. Chris D

I would assume, and note this is only an assumption, that Default braille display means that is the only one it will be looking for.

So, you cannot go in and select the other braille display on the fly?  On some levels, that doesn’t surprise me with Jaws.  As a former Window-Eyes champion, things like this seem to be common place.

 

I have not had the opportunity to try with two different brands.  I have access to the Braille Edge from work, and shortly will have the Orbit Reader 20 to try at home and then I can see if Jaws behaves the same way with those.

Hi all,

 

Here is the problem :

 

I got two braille displays : One Baum VarioUltra 20 for mobile use outside my office, and one Papenmeier Braillex EL66S on my desk.

 

If I configure Jaws to use the Braillex EL as default braille display, it won’t detect my Varioultra at all, even if I plug it in after having unplugged the Braillex or even if I start Jaws while Varioultra is plugged and Braillex is unplugged.

 

When I set the Varioultra as default braille display, the VarioUltra is correctly detected at jaws startup and then, I can unplug it and plug it back again, it will be automatically detected when it is available. Then, if I unplug the VarioUltra and plug the Braillex, the Braillex will be detected and used. However, if I then unplug the Braillex and plug the Varioultra back again, it won’t be detected. I need to shutdown Jaws completely and start it again with Varioultra set as default braille display.

 

I noticed this for the first time with Jaws 2018 but this is still the case now with Jaws 2019. So my question is:

 

Is this a problem due to the combination of those two specific braille displays or is it a more general problem when using Papenmeier braille display alternatively with others, or is it a still more general problem of using two different brands of braille displays?

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice week-end. Chris D

They definitely won't send you a USB stick which is also an authorization dongle every two years. As long as I have used Jaws I'd have a lot of these by now. I don't even think this should come with an expectation to lower the price of an SMA, chances they are sending these free matter for the blind anyways, but a DVD is a few cents if you buy large quantities and shipping is probably a buck in the US and a bit more to Canada, outside of North America it's probably the third-party distributors responsibility anyways and I certainly wouldn't think a $1 or $2 reduction of the SMA makes sense, but as I pointed out before, it's the waste which bugs me.

If only this was the reaction from everyone, all the time!  My entire goal in trying to find operator error, if it did indeed occur, is to prevent its accidentally recurring again.  You can't fix a mystery; a root cause has to be identified in order for a correction to be formulated.

Please report back with your success with correcting the bookmark or with questions should you hit a bump while trying to do so.

Re: JAWS 2019 and tracked changes in MS Word

Edward Green
 

Hi Loreal,

Whether or not you are working with a .doc or .docx file shouldn't affect how track changes work.

To toggle track changes on and off while typing, press shift+control+e.

Probably the most efficient way to review changes in a document is to press windows key+semi-colon which brings up a JAWS dialog of things you can review such as comments and footnotes. From the resultant list, choose "revisions" and press enter.

The changes should now appear in the virtual viewer, with a numbered link above each. Activating this link will take you to the relevant part of the text in which the change appears.

I hope this is a useful start.

Cheers,

Ed

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

 

The fact of the matter is that if one intends to stay in the Windows ecosystem with an OS supported by Microsoft then getting Windows 10 is not optional.  You can put it off for a short while longer, but January 2020 is getting really, really close.

Anyone who elects to use an unsupported OS as a "daily driver" OS connected to cyberspace is just begging for trouble.

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

 

That is the sort of blanket statement which has no value, Windows 10 is an operating system and different people have different needs, e.g. somebody may use their Windows 10 computer to do some web browsing, use email and maybe Skype or play some music others are working demanding jobs or like me are self-employed and need to use more or less complex software which may or may not work better with NVDA or Jaws. I am not an NVDA user, but I heard repeatedly that NVDA is slow and sluggish in Windows Explorer which Jaws is not. I believe there is some sort of OCR add-on for NVDA whether it is as good and useful as Jaws OCR I don't know, but I use Jaws OCR daily and sometimes multiple times daily for invoices which are in PDF image format or faxes I receive via the Myfax service.
I don't want to put down NVDA, but I just don't agree with such broad statements which may or may not apply to what I need to do.

OCr more often than in the past.

But there's a lot to like too, such as a much-improved Narrator
(which works even when Jaws crashes).

I think the Ribbon-based Explorer is more cumbersome.

Also, a lot more Tabbing when in Windows configuration screens.

Nothing that's a deal killer, but I do miss how well the Jaws cursor
worked back in Windows 7 and XP days.

Hi,

I use a work computer which is still running Windows 7. We have now,
finally, been given an opportunity to upgrade from Windows 7 to
Windows 10, with a no return to Windows 7 policy once upgraded.

Is there any reason to not upgrade to Windows 10? This will be an
upgrade on an older computer, and not a replacement computer, if
that would make a difference.

Using the latest JAWS.

Thanks in advance. Keith




JAWS 2019 and tracked changes in MS Word

Loreal Lavigna
 

I’m working with MS Word 2016/Office 365.  One of my clients requires edits be reviewed in tracked changes but that the documents are typed in an older word format *.doc instead of *.docx.

 

I’m coming back into the workforce fulltime after being out for over a year – first on maternity leave beginning last year mid-Fall, and then spending nearly the first year of my daughter’s life taking care of her more fulltime than anything else.

 

The client I’m working with has me typing attorneys’ notes – No problem.  However, working with tracked changes, while I used ot be a wiz at this, either I’ve forgotten something or things have radically changed in the past 15 months.  I haven’t done this in a while.  Can anyone help me with a refresher on working with, reviewing, and reading tracked changes in MS Word with JAWS?

 

Sincerely,
