action: undo autoactions in outlook and word;

mike mcglashon
 

Hey guys:

Using word2016, outlook2016, latest win10 and jaws2019 regular release;

 

When in outlook and word, and whilst writing emails and docs,

I get this message popping up a lot, and it is truly annoying;

“action: undo autoactions”

(both speech and braille display);

It flickers;

 

Am guessing that there is something in both word and outlook that needs to be turned off;

Something that jaws is seeing and reacting too;

I went into settings with alt+f, t, and am not sure what to turn off, maybe something in proofing?

But am not sure what to turn off;

Any ideas?

It may not be that simple.  Others have reported that it may be necessary to boot into safe mode in order to remove Avast with their removal tool.

Uninstalling Avast is not in any way different than any other program.  Open Control Panel, Programs and Features, select the program you wish to uninstall from the list, then bring up the context menu and select Uninstall from it.

Hi all:

I'm told that if I uninstall the Avast program it will automatically be replaced by "Windows defender".

If this is so, what are the step-by step instructions to uninstall Avast using the Jaws screenreading program?

Thank you,



DSP


Re: anti-virus program recommendation

 

OK, sorry, I don't think you said you are using Windows 7 before this. In this case use Security Essentials since Windows Defender is what comes with Windows 10.

Have you tried Control Y? That is what I usually recommend.


Re: 2019 not fully functional after boot up

 

Have you tried to turn it off and back on in Jaws Settings? I have 4 desktops at work and my laptop at home and Jaws 2019 speaks at the logon screen as well as after the desktop loads 100% of the time on all my computers.

Re: 2019 not fully functional after boot up

 

Why not set a shortcut key like Control+Shift+J, also if you know your computer is logged in pressing Windows Key+M to make sure you are on the desktop and then J should put you on the Jaws icon unless you have other shortcuts which start with J, lastly you can press Windows Key+R and type Jaws2019 all without spaces and press enter. Any of these should start Jaws without having to first start another screenreader.

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  In Outlook 2007, I used to be able to tab from my mailbox list view (listing all the emails therein) to the tree view showing all my various mailboxes (e.g., sent, deleted, drafts, etc.).  I think this tree view is called the “navigation pane.”  Now, in Outlook 2016 as I tab from the list view it seems only to go to the “search pane.”  Strangely, somehow I was able to tab into the navigation pane previously, but not anymore.  Now, to get to the navigation pane I must cycle through F6.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Re: Jaws 2019 dowload trouble

 

I have been using Security Essentials in Windows 7 ever since it became available and in Windows 10 this now is Windows Defender.
Before then, in the early 2000's I used Eset NOD32, but for the last 10years or so I see no point in free or paid third party solutions. I have 4 works PC's where employees work and need to go online as well as my laptop at home. As long as you make sure you keep Windows updated and use common sense when it comes to clicking on links in emails or opening attachments you get you'll be just fine, I think I once had some sort of virus back in the late 90's and it wasn't anything major, but if you click on something whichinstalls software that locks your computer as in where you fall victim to one of those scams where then you need to pay somebody to unlock it again I doubt that most anti virus software will make a difference.
The nice thing with Windows Defender is that it's just there, I never do anything in terms of consciously updating it, I rarely run deliberate scans and it never seems to really interfere with anything like what you just described.

Regards,
Sieghard

What anti-virus program are most list users using, and how did you acquire

Hopefully folks are reporting this directly to Vispero as well as these lists. For things to get fixed, they need to hear about them.

Re: anti-virus program recommendation

Mario
 

I rely on either JAWS or NVDA because I can't make out anything on
screen. I find it nearly impossible to adjust settings and perform a
scan (and probably other tasks sighted users can successfully use that I
haven't been able to try) because the information on it's UI is very
garbled (no seperation between words to make sense of what the on screen
information is). I complained a few times but they don't seem to
understand (or care) even though I urged them to have them install NVDA
and try to set settings and use Internet Security to see what frustrates
me. but they just don't understand. yes, I disabled graphics according
to their directions, but my frustration remains because disabling
graphics does not resolve the garbled on screen information. anybody
have a suggestion on resolving my issue?

I allow them to save in the usual location, except that I create a folder called General, and put everything under that. If I want subfolders, I put them under General. This way, if there are other folders at the same level as General, I can delete them, knowing they're not important to me.
