Hi, Dean. I tried changing List Item under Text Processing>General, and it didn’t change the behavior when using CONTROL plus SPACE to select and unselect desktop items.

I haven’t upgraded yet, but it would be interesting to see if they inadvertently changed the default behavior of a setting.the fourth setting in the general section of the text processing dialog is called List Item, and there are four choices.  The default has always been “say not selected.”  It sounds like they may have changed the default, but by changing that setting you may get things back the way they should work.

Subject: Selected and unselected items

 

I have discovered a new behavior in JAWS2019's latest update. In the past, if a file, folder, or an icon was selected, and then unselected, you would hear the following.

 

When the file, folder or icon was selected, such as Recycle Bin, you would hear the item spoken.

JAWS 2018

 

Recycle Bin

 

Then if unselected, JAWS would say,

 

Not Selected Recycle Bin

 

JAWS 2019's latest update behaves differently. If you select a file, folder or icon, JAWS does not voice the icon, but, instead, says, Selected.

 

If the item is then unselected with CONTROL plus SPACE, JAWS does not say anything, or indicate that the item has been unselected.

 

I have reported this behavior to Vispero, and the lady who took my call reported it as a bug. I don't know if this is a bug, or if it is a changed behavior instituted by vispero, as per the silent TAB key. Either way, I am not happy with this change. I want to know if an item is selected or unselected.

Hi Tim,

 

Here's the whole message:


Below is the download link for both 32 & 64 Bit, the same link works for both, plus what's new in this release.  Also, below What's New are some frequently
asked questions with answers.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/2019.1812.49.400/64B6B33C-26C3-4AC2-852B-8CD8F79F2796/J2019.1812.49-any.exe
 
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1812.49 (December 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 2019 release and the December 2018 update.
 
Improved AutoCorrect Detection in Word and Outlook
 
With the improvements to UIA support in Office 365 versions higher than  16.0.10400, JAWS can now immediately alert you when text is AutoCorrected as you
edit documents in Word or when composing emails in Outlook. By default, when you are typing in word or the body of an email and you press the SPACEBAR
after a word that is AutoCorrected, JAWS plays a pop sound. In addition, if you stop typing, so that speech is not interrupted, JAWS says "Auto Correct"
followed by the corrected word including the spelling.
 
As you navigate a document, JAWS can also announce if Word has automatically corrected the current text. You can then press ALT+SHIFT+F10 to open a context
menu that allows you to undo the correction, stop automatically correcting that word, or change your AutoCorrect options. For instance, if JAWS alerts
you that a word you just typed was corrected but you prefer to use the word as you originally typed it, you can navigate back to the item, press ALT+SHIFT+F10,
and choose "Change back."
 
Note: When typing in the body of a new message in Outlook, JAWS can alert you when text is AutoCorrected, however, the context menu for changing AutoCorrect
options is only accessible using a mouse. Microsoft currently only allows the ALT+SHIFT+F10 command to be used in Word.
 
If you do not want to be notified when text is AutoCorrected when you press the SPACEBAR, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from Word and turn off the "Spelling
buzzer on mistyped words" option. Note that this will also turn off the buzzer sound that is heard to indicate a misspelled word.
 
If you do not want to have JAWS alert you to corrected words as you navigate a document, open Quick Settings from Word and turn off the AutoCorrect Detection
option.
 
Support for Co-Authoring Documents in Word 365
 
If a shared document is opened by multiple users, JAWS can now do the following:
 
list of 3 items
• Indicate who has the document opened using a notification message.
• When another co-author navigates to the same line as the JAWS user, JAWS will indicate who is editing the same line. Pressing INSERT+UP ARROW to read
the current line will also announce who is reading or editing at that location.
• When a co-author actually edits the same line you are on, JAWS indicates that the text is locked for editing. If you press INSERT+UP ARROW, you will
hear "Editing locked." You will also be alerted that the line is locked if you begin typing.
list end
 
Navigation Quick Keys Now Available in Google Docs
 
Google Docs provides a number of keystrokes to help users navigate through documents more efficiently. However, these commands are difficult for users
to discover and use repeatedly. For example, you can press ALT+CTRL+N followed by ALT+CTRL+H to move to the next heading which could be difficult to press
multiple times for some users.
 
To improve document navigation, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by Q in Google Docs to activate a Quick Keys layer. Braille support must also
be turned on in Google Docs for this to work correctly. Even if you do not use a braille display, Braille support provides the most accessibility information
to JAWS so you have the best experience when navigating and editing documents. If Braille support is not already enabled, press ALT+SHIFT+A for the Accessibility
menu, open the Settings submenu, and press ENTER on Enable Braille Support. Once the Quick Keys layer is active, the following navigation commands are
available:
 
list of 3 items
• Move to the next or prior heading: H or SHIFT+H
• Move to the next or prior list: L or SHIFT+L
• Move to the next or prior table: T or SHIFT+T
list end
 
While this layer is active, you can continue to use the ARROW keys to review text. For example, you could press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q, H to move to a heading,
press DOWN ARROW to read a couple lines, and then press H to jump to the next heading without having to press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q again. This layer remains
active until you press ESC or any key that is not one of the supported navigation keys described above.
 
Other Changes
list of 24 items
• Resolved an issue with JAWS double speaking links in PDF documents.
• The Liblouis braille translator used in JAWS has been updated to version 3.7 offering improved Unified English Braille (UEB) tables, back translation
improvements, and new Chinese language tables.
• In the Windows 10 Fall 2018 update,JAWS now reads as expected in the Clipboard history window accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+V.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Emoji panel accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+SEMICOLON. Note that there is still
a known issue where emojis will not read correctly in emails opened in Outlook 365.
• Due to major changes with the UPS website, the UPS Tracking Research It lookup source has been removed as it can no longer search and retrieve results
from this service.
• JAWS now supports reading PDF documents in Edge. This includes navigating documents using standard reading commands, using Navigation Quick Keys such
as H to move by headings, and entering Forms Mode in edit fields.
• JAWS can now indicate if a form field is marked as "required" in Edge.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Announce Multiline Edit option in Setting Center would not remain active in the Default settings file.
• Resolved a reported issue in Notepad where JAWS was not automatically reading the prompts for the edit fields in the Find and Replace dialog box.
• The JAWS setup program now displays a splash screen when it first starts and before the main installation screen appears.
• Pressing INSERT+F1 twice quickly in Chrome now displays a JAWS help topic.
• In addition to pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by H to display the speech history in the Results Viewer, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed
by CTRL+H to copy the speech history to the Clipboard for pasting into an application. The speech history includes the last 50 announcements spoken by
the synthesizer.
• In Winamp, you can now perform single-letter commands directly from a braille display's  keyboard including the Focus Blue such as X to play, V to stop,
C to pause, and B and Z to move to the next or previous item in a playlist.
• When accessing documents in the online version of Word 365 using Chrome or Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating
by line.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not announcing autocomplete addresses in Outlook 365.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not read bulleted lists in Word formatted using Hollow Arrow bullets.
• When moving in and out of lists in Word 2013 or later, JAWS now announces list level nesting, for instance, "level 1." In addition, if you press INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line on a list item, JAWS now announces position information, for example, "2 of 5."
• If an Excel spread sheet contains multiple regions, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not reading row and column totals.
• Addressed an issue with the background color not being reported correctly in Excel when using the INSERT+F keystroke.
• Added a new JAWS keystroke, CTRL+INSERT+B, for use in an upcoming release of Skype. Once your version of Skype updates, performing this command activates
the Back button in the active conversation so you can return to the Home screen. If this keystroke is not yet working for you, then your version of Skype
has not yet updated.
• The "Spelling buzzer on mistyped words" option is now available in the Quick Settings for the Windows 10 Mail app.
• Resolved instances where JAWS would randomly say "JAWS visual tracking window."
• Addressed a reported issue where the Language combo box in the Dictionary Manager was not showing all available languages.
• Added support for Google Slides film strip tree views.

Frequently Asked Questions
 
Question: Should I remove my existing version of JAWS before installing JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: This is not necessary and many users choose to keep multiple versions on their system. Once you find that you are no longer using the prior version,
and everything is working well with the new version, you may uninstall the old version but do not remove shared components.
 
Question: If I recently received JAWS 2018, how do I get JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: If you purchased JAWS 2018 after September 1, 2018, you can download the JAWS 2019 release for free from the Freedom Scientific website. To verify
if you are entitled to the current version, visit the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page and enter your serial number.
 
Question: If my SMA expires, will I receive a notice?
 
Answer: Customers in the U.S. will receive notification in the mail shortly after the JAWS 2019 release. The envelope will have a Braille label on the
outside, and it will contain an SMA Renewal letter explaining the process in print and Braille. You can also renew your SMA online using the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page on the Freedom Scientific website.

Re: problem with the facebook mobile site and jfw

JM Casey
 

Hi.
Yes, it's broken.
But it's not really an accessibility issue, is it?
The best ways around this issue, until they decide to fix the mobile site, is to try something else.
Facebook isn't really required to maintain m.facebook.com because hardly anyone uses it. Fixing issues with it, and they come up often, is probably on the very bottom of their priority list. I don't think it has much to do with blind people or accessibility at all.
Unfortunately, too, if you have a browser or screen-reader that's behind the curve, so to speak, as JAWS 17 now is, you will have other issues to contend with as well and your experience may not be entirely satisfactory. I know this well; I used JAWS 11 or 12 for years after it was unsupported. Unfortunately it's up to us to explore other alternatives.
Try the regular facebook site with NVDA, and see how that works out.
Experiment with your notifications as suggested earlier and see if they will show up for that group.
Make a bookmark for the group in your web browser so you can easily get to it.
If you have to, ask someone in the group to personally share posts with you/on your wall.

And yes, absolutely do make that report and ask them to fix the groups menu on m.facebook.com, too.

The bottom line, it's broken, and it needs to be fixed. Companies need to comply with accessibility requirements. I know that for me personally i rely on these FB groups for a lot of things related to my job, so yes it's very important that it work.

Hmm.
If you are looking for a specific post, I believe they show up
normally according to the last comment, chronologically. So in reverse
order, but not necessarily in order of posting, if that makes sense.
If you keep clicking "see more", you should eventually find it.
Not the most efficient way to handle important stuff, certainly.

Hey guys,

So, question. I'm assuming a lot of you use the facebook mobile
site.
I'm seeing a huge problem, and wondering if it's site related or
something else. When i go to the mobile site, and click on
groups, none of the groups i am part of show up. All i see is
suggested groups. I'm part of probably 15 to 20 facebook groups
on various topics, but none of them show up. Any ideas?

Re: JAWS2019.1812.49 Build Update, Download Links + What's New In This Release

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Don,
 
I don't know why it does that but, I would imagine it's because it actually replaces the desktop icon with a new one.  You can try assigning the shortcut keystroke from a different Jaws icon, and
I believe it will solve your disappearing keystroke problem.  I assign my
pin to Taskbar shortcut from this Jaws icon and never have to mess with it
after a Jaws build update.  Try the following:
1. Open the Start menu, navigate to the Programs folder and open it.
2. Use first letter navigation to the version of Jaws you want to assign the
shortcut keystroke to.  Press the letter, J, until you reach JAWS2018, for
example.
3. With the preferred version of JAWS highlighted Press enter or right arrow
to open, up or down arrow to, JAWS, and this is the icon that you want to
use for creating the shortcut keystroke.
4. So, with the JAWS icon highlighted press, Alt + Enter, to open the JAWS
properties, or press the applications key or Shift + F10 to open the context
menu, and press enter on properties.
5. Assign your keystroke, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay,
and press Enter.
Take care.  Go Rams!

Re: Spell check in Word 2016

Van Lant, Robin
 

Alt F7 takes you to each misspelled word. Issue with this method is that it opens the context menu with suggested changes in it. That often works, but you have to press Escape once or twice to get out and read the word in context if it's not obvious what word it is. I think this is a Word Command, not a JAWS one, so it probably works well for sighted users who can see the misspelled word and are ready to see the list of suggestions.

The reason it works differently in Word from Outlook is that Outlook still uses the old dialog box interface, whereas Word has gone to a ride side pane display for spell check.

JAWS2019.1812.49 Build Update, Download Links + What's New In This Release

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the download link for both 32 & 64 Bit, the same link works for both, plus what's new in this release.  Also, below What's New are some frequently asked questions with answers.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1812.49 (December 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 2019 release and the December 2018 update.
 
Improved AutoCorrect Detection in Word and Outlook
 
With the improvements to UIA support in Office 365 versions higher than  16.0.10400, JAWS can now immediately alert you when text is AutoCorrected as you
edit documents in Word or when composing emails in Outlook. By default, when you are typing in word or the body of an email and you press the SPACEBAR
after a word that is AutoCorrected, JAWS plays a pop sound. In addition, if you stop typing, so that speech is not interrupted, JAWS says "Auto Correct"
followed by the corrected word including the spelling.
 
As you navigate a document, JAWS can also announce if Word has automatically corrected the current text. You can then press ALT+SHIFT+F10 to open a context
menu that allows you to undo the correction, stop automatically correcting that word, or change your AutoCorrect options. For instance, if JAWS alerts
you that a word you just typed was corrected but you prefer to use the word as you originally typed it, you can navigate back to the item, press ALT+SHIFT+F10,
and choose "Change back."
 
Note: When typing in the body of a new message in Outlook, JAWS can alert you when text is AutoCorrected, however, the context menu for changing AutoCorrect
options is only accessible using a mouse. Microsoft currently only allows the ALT+SHIFT+F10 command to be used in Word.
 
If you do not want to be notified when text is AutoCorrected when you press the SPACEBAR, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from Word and turn off the "Spelling
buzzer on mistyped words" option. Note that this will also turn off the buzzer sound that is heard to indicate a misspelled word.
 
If you do not want to have JAWS alert you to corrected words as you navigate a document, open Quick Settings from Word and turn off the AutoCorrect Detection
option.
 
Support for Co-Authoring Documents in Word 365
 
If a shared document is opened by multiple users, JAWS can now do the following:
 
list of 3 items
• Indicate who has the document opened using a notification message.
• When another co-author navigates to the same line as the JAWS user, JAWS will indicate who is editing the same line. Pressing INSERT+UP ARROW to read
the current line will also announce who is reading or editing at that location.
• When a co-author actually edits the same line you are on, JAWS indicates that the text is locked for editing. If you press INSERT+UP ARROW, you will
hear "Editing locked." You will also be alerted that the line is locked if you begin typing.
list end
 
Navigation Quick Keys Now Available in Google Docs
 
Google Docs provides a number of keystrokes to help users navigate through documents more efficiently. However, these commands are difficult for users
to discover and use repeatedly. For example, you can press ALT+CTRL+N followed by ALT+CTRL+H to move to the next heading which could be difficult to press
multiple times for some users.
 
To improve document navigation, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by Q in Google Docs to activate a Quick Keys layer. Braille support must also
be turned on in Google Docs for this to work correctly. Even if you do not use a braille display, Braille support provides the most accessibility information
to JAWS so you have the best experience when navigating and editing documents. If Braille support is not already enabled, press ALT+SHIFT+A for the Accessibility
menu, open the Settings submenu, and press ENTER on Enable Braille Support. Once the Quick Keys layer is active, the following navigation commands are
available:
 
list of 3 items
• Move to the next or prior heading: H or SHIFT+H
• Move to the next or prior list: L or SHIFT+L
• Move to the next or prior table: T or SHIFT+T
list end
 
While this layer is active, you can continue to use the ARROW keys to review text. For example, you could press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q, H to move to a heading,
press DOWN ARROW to read a couple lines, and then press H to jump to the next heading without having to press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q again. This layer remains
active until you press ESC or any key that is not one of the supported navigation keys described above.
 
Other Changes
list of 24 items
• Resolved an issue with JAWS double speaking links in PDF documents.
• The Liblouis braille translator used in JAWS has been updated to version 3.7 offering improved Unified English Braille (UEB) tables, back translation
improvements, and new Chinese language tables.
• In the Windows 10 Fall 2018 update,JAWS now reads as expected in the Clipboard history window accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+V.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Emoji panel accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+SEMICOLON. Note that there is still
a known issue where emojis will not read correctly in emails opened in Outlook 365.
• Due to major changes with the UPS website, the UPS Tracking Research It lookup source has been removed as it can no longer search and retrieve results
from this service.
• JAWS now supports reading PDF documents in Edge. This includes navigating documents using standard reading commands, using Navigation Quick Keys such
as H to move by headings, and entering Forms Mode in edit fields.
• JAWS can now indicate if a form field is marked as "required" in Edge.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Announce Multiline Edit option in Setting Center would not remain active in the Default settings file.
• Resolved a reported issue in Notepad where JAWS was not automatically reading the prompts for the edit fields in the Find and Replace dialog box.
• The JAWS setup program now displays a splash screen when it first starts and before the main installation screen appears.
• Pressing INSERT+F1 twice quickly in Chrome now displays a JAWS help topic.
• In addition to pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by H to display the speech history in the Results Viewer, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed
by CTRL+H to copy the speech history to the Clipboard for pasting into an application. The speech history includes the last 50 announcements spoken by
the synthesizer.
• In Winamp, you can now perform single-letter commands directly from a braille display's  keyboard including the Focus Blue such as X to play, V to stop,
C to pause, and B and Z to move to the next or previous item in a playlist.
• When accessing documents in the online version of Word 365 using Chrome or Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating
by line.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not announcing autocomplete addresses in Outlook 365.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not read bulleted lists in Word formatted using Hollow Arrow bullets.
• When moving in and out of lists in Word 2013 or later, JAWS now announces list level nesting, for instance, "level 1." In addition, if you press INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line on a list item, JAWS now announces position information, for example, "2 of 5."
• If an Excel spread sheet contains multiple regions, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not reading row and column totals.
• Addressed an issue with the background color not being reported correctly in Excel when using the INSERT+F keystroke.
• Added a new JAWS keystroke, CTRL+INSERT+B, for use in an upcoming release of Skype. Once your version of Skype updates, performing this command activates
the Back button in the active conversation so you can return to the Home screen. If this keystroke is not yet working for you, then your version of Skype
has not yet updated.
• The "Spelling buzzer on mistyped words" option is now available in the Quick Settings for the Windows 10 Mail app.
• Resolved instances where JAWS would randomly say "JAWS visual tracking window."
• Addressed a reported issue where the Language combo box in the Dictionary Manager was not showing all available languages.
• Added support for Google Slides film strip tree views.
list end

Frequently Asked Questions
 
Question: Should I remove my existing version of JAWS before installing JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: This is not necessary and many users choose to keep multiple versions on their system. Once you find that you are no longer using the prior version,
and everything is working well with the new version, you may uninstall the old version but do not remove shared components.
 
Question: If I recently received JAWS 2018, how do I get JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: If you purchased JAWS 2018 after September 1, 2018, you can download the JAWS 2019 release for free from the Freedom Scientific website. To verify
if you are entitled to the current version, visit the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page and enter your serial number.
 
Question: If my SMA expires, will I receive a notice?
 
Answer: Customers in the U.S. will receive notification in the mail shortly after the JAWS 2019 release. The envelope will have a Braille label on the
outside, and it will contain an SMA Renewal letter explaining the process in print and Braille. You can also renew your SMA online using the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page on the Freedom Scientific website.

Hello,
I’m not sure if this is the right list, but I was hoping someone might know the answer to this. My parents have offered me their Hp Pavillion with i7 processor that they no longer use. In return, I have to give them my old laptop. The laptop I will be getting is from 2011. Does anyone know whether I will have to change the function keys in the BIOS or if that unit is old enough that I won’t have to? My Hp is from 2009 and I didn’t have to make this change. I tried to call Hp’s accessibility line to see if they can answer my question, but they don’t answer their phone. I guess I could try sales chat to see if they might know.
Kind Regards,

replace. Anyone found a work around for this?
This does not happen in outlook 2016, spell check works the way it is
supposed to.

Nate,

Thanks, but when I do insert F7 it says nothing.
When I push F6 and tab through all the focused, one days document pane. Do you have other panes showing?

Hello,

When in the spellchecker, insert/F7 should tell you the miss spelled word.

In her Word 2016 text book, KathyAnn Murtha recommends either using
the JAWS command alt+shift+l to locate misspelled words, or insert+z
to invoke Word's quick keys, then the lletter m to locate misspelled
words. Once you have found a misspelleing, use the applications key
to suggest corrections.

Using Win 10 pro version 1803, and latest version of Jaws 2019 I do

When I hit F7 to do the spell check in an open Word document, I'm
given an option to change language and as I tab possible suggested
correctly spelled words. The problem is Jaws is not reading me the
