Hi, Dave. You're right. Step two should be CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A. I
screwed up.

1. Open Firefox.
2. Press SHIFT plus A for AddOns Manager.
3. TAB once, and if your computer says, Extensions, Arrow down to Plugins,
and press ENTER.
4. TAB about four times, until you reach your list of plugins.
5. Arrow through your list of plugins, and if you see ShockWave Flash, press

ENTER on it.
6. TAB about four times to the Change How This AddOn Runs dialog, and press
ENTER.
7. Arrow through the options, and make sure it is on Ask To Activate, and
press ENTER.
8. Close Firefox. That's it.

Hi, Kim. All problems with the current version of JAWS and the current
version of Firefox have been fixed. The only problem I have found is that,
if you have Adobe Flash installed in Firefox, make sure that the plugin is
set to Ask To Activate, instead of Always Activate. If the plugin is set to
Always Activate, Firefox will freeze up.

Subject: Is there a version of firefox that currently works with Jaws

Hi All,

I'm getting a new laptop this week and I'm wondering what I should be doing
about a browser. I've used firefox in the past, but I know there have been
lots of problems recently.

So my question is whether those problems have been fixed? Or if not what
browser would people recommend for use with windows 10?

This is my first windows 10 laptop so I'm not sure what works best and would

have the least learning curve.

Thanks for any recommendations.

it should be noted that the version of Firefox Steve talks about is the

version which is at 63.0.1.

Yes. The current version, 60.3.4, works well with JAWS  17 and up. A
previous recent version did not work with anything older than JAWS 2018,
but that appears to have been remedied with 60.3, as I discovered just
the other day when I forgot to put JAWS 2018 on, and Firefox did not
give me the message that my screenreading technology had been disabled.
Nice one, Mozilla!

I’m using Jaws 2019, Windows 10 home 1809, I have Office 365.

In Outlook, following your steps with the settings, the reading behavior does not change.

I still hear the subject and message type read after hitting enter on the Email.  And, it won’t automatically read…

The message type is uncheck, yet, I hear each time if the Email is HTML, plain text, etc.

I’m off to work, where I have Jaws 2018 and Windows 7 and outlook 2016 so I will check there.

Re: I signing hot keys question

Matthew Horspool
 

Hi James,

It is possible to do this, but you will need to edit the JKM file by hand.

The syntax for layered keys is:
KEY1&KEY2=SCRIPT

For example, if I want to announce the time by pressing SHIFT+SPACE, followed by the letter T, I would need to add a line like this:
SHIFT+SPACE&T=SaySystemTime

If you require more comprehensive instructions on how to edit JKM files by hand, please get back to me.

Best wishes,

Matthew

Some hot keys in the keyboard manager have the user pressed a modifier key plus the space bar then a letter. Is it possible for you to change these hot keys? If so, how do you assign that kind of a hockey without having jaws just recognize two buttons you push? For example  Whenever I try to assign a function to the  hot key shift plus space bar plus  the letter k, jaws only records shift and the space bar. But, I want to assign a function to shift plus the space bar than the press of a letter.   I think these  are called double layer hot keys. But I’m not sure. Thank you for anyone who can help

 


JAWS 2018.1808.10 Reports Incorrect File Count in File Explorer

Steve Matzura
 

This has been annoying me for some time now, but today it annoyed me enough to scare me. I have a directory that I absolutely know has fifty-one files in it. Sometimes when I'm looking at files toward the top of the list, JAWS says the file is numbered one of twenty-three, or maybe some other higher number first, then "of twenty-three," and if I'm further down the list, JAWS may say "so-and-so of twenty-nine." Never do I hear "so-and-so of fifty-one." This is in Windows 10, 1803, build 345, the window  is maximized, I'm in list view, I even tried details view, same thing. Anybody have any i-dears? I'm all ears. LOL

Re: reading markers

Matthew Horspool
 

Hi Ed,

This is a Word option:

1.       Press ALT+F, then T for Word Options.

2.       In the tree view, press D for Display.

3.       TAB to the group of controls labelled "Always show these formatting marks on the screen". Make sure all the checkboxes in that group are unchecked, unless you particularly want certain markers shown.

4.       Press ENTER.

In certain versions of Office, there is also a keystroke to toggle on and off all formatting marks, but I can't remember what it is. Memory says it is CTRL+SHIFT+8, but maybe it's 9 or 7 or 6. Feel free to experiment.

Hope this helps,

Matthew

Subject: reading markers

 

I have apparently done something that is causing JAWS to read markers in my Word documents.  for example, it now says “space marker” between words and “paragraph marker” between paragraphs.

How do I change it back to not saying these things and what did I do to make the change?

Hi Ed,

 

Try pressing Control + shift + 8. That is a toggle. By the way, it is the 8 on the number row.

 

Good luck!

How do I get Outlook 2016 to stop reading a message's subject line when I open it?

Hi!

 

In JFW 15 with Outlook 2007, I use to be able to have an opened message begin automatically start reading but not its subject line, just the message body.  I don’t need the subject line re-read because I already know it from the message’s preview in Outlook’s list box as I scroll down my inbox.  Now, with JFW 2019 and Outlook 2016 the message’s subject line reads after I open it as JFW begins to read the message’s body.  How can I stop the message’s subject line from reading?

 

Thanks,

Richard
