Hi All,

 

Using JAWS 2018 and IE 11 on a Windows 10 laptop.  If you have experience with Word Press.  Would you do me a favor and take a look at www.nfbofsc.org and tell me how to remove the information under each heading?  Such as posted on December 6 by Steve Cook.  I have seen other websites hosted on Word Press that does not have this information.  Thanks in advance!

Re: Registering Kindle for PC with JFW

david Jennette
 

It's going to depend on the version of the kindle software you want to use. If your using the software with accessible plugin you'll have to tinker just a bit. Your best bet is to use the newer kindle software. If you use that, there shouldn't be a problem at all. Jaws will read the sign in page just fine.

My question is how they're trying to view available WiFi networks.

Under both JAWS and NVDA I've been able to review available networks by:

1. Hitting WinKey+B to throw focus to the system tray.
2. Right arrow until you hit the connections icon.
3. Hit enter to open the list of available networks.
4. Down Arrow through the list to locate the network you'd like to join.
5. Hit Enter to begin the connection process, which can vary slightly depending on whether you've ever connected to the network before.

Re: stop keys being spoken

David Goldfield
 

Hi. Sounds like your typing echo has been reset to announce each key which is pressed. Here is how to silence those keys.


1. Press insert-V for the Quick settings dialog.

2. You should be in an edit field. Type the word "typing" without the quotes.

3. You should hear JAWS say "typing echo."

4. Press tab.

5. Press the space key to cycle through the various options.

6. Press enter twice.


Hope that helps.

[Leasey] Leasey is Almost Four Years Old, So What's Next?

David Goldfield
 

I'm forwarding this from the Leasey list as it may be of interest to those interested in this very nice addition to JAWS.

Subject: [Leasey] Leasey is Almost Four Years Old, So What's Next?

From: Brian Hartgen via Leaseylist <leaseylist@...>
Reply-To: Leasey <leaseylist@...>
To: 'Leasey' <leaseylist@...>
CC: Brian Hartgen <jaws@...>


Hi to all

 

Believe it or not, Leasey is approaching her fourth birthday. This time of year in that regard is something we generally do not think much about. But time has certainly flown by quickly. We devised the concept of Leasey early in 2014, spent six months licking her into shape, and she was officially ready on 8 December 2014. There was a point when we thought she would not hit the streets, but that story is for another time.

 

We're so glad that many people are still benefiting from, and enjoying, working with Leasey. We have a new release coming your way quite soon. It will be released on week beginning 17 December, and certainly before the 20th as that is when we close our business for the Christmas holidays this year.

 

So, what can you expect in this release?

 

Progress Bar Indicator Sounds.

 

It was suggested to us through our Leasey public Email list that it would be good if JAWS could play sounds to indicate the status of a progress bar. These are generally given in percentage terms to advise a user of the progress of an event which is taking place in Windows. This could be the installation of a program, but it could also be the downloading of a file from the internet, or perhaps copying a large folder from one storage location to another.

 

JAWS does give a good indicator as to the percentage of most progress bars. However, Leasey does have a sound scheme, (activated by pressing the Leasey Key then letter O). This has three states: Off, which means speech only. Sounds On, which is self-explanatory, and Sounds with Speech, where you hear both the sounds and the speech; a tutorial mode if you will. The Sounds Scheme allows sounds to represent specific events rather than speech output, for example when a web page loads or when text is being highlighted or selected.

 

We thought long and hard about the best way of implementing sounds to indicate progress events. It would have been simplicity itself to produce computer generated tones to represent percentages 1 to 100; child's play in fact. But not only can this be overwhelming for some people, but also it doesn't accurately let the user know the precise percentage point reached. For example, if we were to do that, and played a person the tone which represented 47 percent, there is no certainty that he or she could identify its true value. So here is how our first version of this feature works.

 

Assuming the Sounds Scheme is enabled, you will hear tones which represent 5 percent increments, with the lowest tone representing 5 percent and the highest 100 percent. These are professionally recorded sounds as we hope you would expect from our company.

 

During other percentage increments, you will hear a soft tick sound. While we could have just stopped at the 20 tones, we wanted users to know that progress was occurring at the other percentage points in a discrete way. For example, if a large video file is being copied from an iPhone to a computer, this can take several  minutes. The tick sounds will indicate that things are progressing, but if there is a pause in the tick sounds, this should let you know that no further progress is being made.

 

Naturally, we want users to learn what the sounds represent, so there is a tutorial mode which plays the tones from lowest to highest, together with the soft tick.

 

Two further notes. There is a setting within JAWS to change the frequency of the progress indicator reports. This is honoured by the Sounds Scheme.

 

Secondly, in the case of downloading files using Google Chrome, there is no progress bar as such. But with Leasey, you will hear a sound to indicate that a file is downloading, and there is also a mechanism by which you can ascertain the amount of a file which has been downloaded together with the total size of the potential download.

 

Moving to Web Page Elements Quickly.

 

The next release of Leasey will also allow you to move to the first or last instance of most web page elements. JAWS already contains the ability to move to the next or previous instance of an element, but to improve productivity, it may be helpful to move to the first and last of these.

 

For example, when you browse to a new web page, it is likely that JAWS will attempt to set focus to the start of the non-linked text. This means that if you wish to reach the first instance of a Heading or other element, you need to press Control+Home to move to the top of the page, and then press letter H. To say again, you can very quickly move to the first Heading with a keystroke using the new version of Leasey.

 

Other Improvements.

 

In Microsoft Word, there are now keystrokes to move to the first, last, next or previous spelling or grammatical error, even if the Quick Navigation keys are not enabled. This will assist in moving through a document to check spelling.

 

When the keystrokes are pressed to shut down or restart the computer, a message is spoken advising this is going to take place.

 

In iTunes, new keystrokes have been added to skip forward and back through an item which is playing, such as a music track. These ensure that the response is far quicker and more reliable.

 

Hopefully, a problem has been corrected in the Skype 8 access so as to move to the history list in Text Chat when a group conversation is in progress.

 

Other improvements include keyboard responsiveness in many areas and copying files and folders using LeaseyTags.

 

We do have some more features in the works, but time is now running short and Christmas is drawing near. But Leasey users will have all of the above very soon. We hope you continue to enjoy using Leasey!

Re: Excel and insert+enter or insert+delete?

Ann Byrne
 

It depends on the version of JAWS. With JAWS 2018 if I press insert+numpad3, when a group of cells is selected, JAWS reads average, count, and sum of the numbers. With JAWS 2019JAWS sometimes reads count and sometimes average, but never all three. These are items that can be displayed on the status bar, and insert+numpad3 is supposed to read the checked items on the status bar.

To check an item on the status bar press f6 a couple of times to get to the status bar, then use the applications menu to check the items you want to read. If they are not checked, JAWS doesn't read them. And in 2019 sometimes it doesn't read them anyway. Boooohoooo!

Re: Why is my Outlook not sending email?

 

Also, unless one makes settings tweaks, Send/Receive is cyclic, occurring every so many minutes.  By default Outlook does not do a Send/Receive upon exit, though it can be set to do so.

See:  https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Change-send-receive-group-settings-7184F59D-C194-44D7-973A-7AF568A918D0

Now, it appears that this page is not entirely accessible as one image is a screenshot of the Send/Receive Groups dialog, but there is no discussion in the text of the checkboxes that are part of the dialog.  The checkbox that reads, Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting, must be checked if you want that to occur.  It is not checked by default.

If this is not set, and you hit Send for a message earlier, but Outlook has not hit the number of minutes to kick off the next send/receive cycle, you will get the message that there are still messages to be sent.  If you set it then Outlook does one final send/receive as part of the exit process.

Re: Why is my Outlook not sending email?

Hi,

  Do you have an attachment that is extremely large?  This may either take a great deal of time or cannot be sent. 

Also, on occasion Outlook does not send and the e-mail goes to your draft folder.  (If you close Outlook before sending mails go to Draft folder)

So if all fails close outlook and then try sending the mail again from the draft folder.
