The culprit is Automatic Language Switching, a desirable feature if you use foreign languages, and not if you do not. Press insert+6 from wherever the problem occurs to go into the Setting Center, type language into the search box, arrow down to automatic language switching, and turn it off. If you do not use any foreign languages, perhaps when you first land in the setting center, press shift+ctrl+d to go to the default settings file and make the change from there.

Hi All,

One issue that I am facing while using JAWS 2018 is that it starts
reading stuff in a different foreign language from time to time, even
though others are able to read it in English. What can be done here?

Re: Free Windows 10 update

 

Unless something has changed very recently, and I mean within the last 5 days or so, one can still do a free upgrade from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10.

I have done several recently, using these instructions (but where the initial steps, up through kicking off setup.exe for Win10, occur from within whatever version of Windows you currently have and are trying to upgrade):

                             Doing an In-place "Upgrade" to Reinstall Windows 10 Keeping Apps/Programs and User Files (though you'll be installing, not reinstalling)
                             NOTE:  You do NOT need to follow the instruction regarding turning off Secure Boot.  It is superfluous.

Has been working like a charm for months now.

So much so that I have installed excel 2010 on his computer in order for him to get work done. He is reporting the following issues. Jaws becomes silent when saving files, formulas aren’t read to him, he will lose an hour of work randomly, he can’t widen columns, add new sheets, rename sheets, etc. All of these things and others I may not have mentioned he can do in Excel 2010. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Believe it or not you can use the MCT and update a Win 7, Win 8x to a genuine digital entitlement for that machine.

In other words the license servers are currently still automatically authorizing.

This is not the case should you try to use the GWX tool that annoyed so many way back when. Running this you will not be able to complete the upgrade.

I have most recently, three weeks, done this with a Win Seven Pro desktop and Win Seven home laptop, using the media creation tool and running the update.

Typically, when I enter dates into the spreadsheet, I do the following:

 

For today:  I’d enter 10/15/2018.

 

This process has worked flawlessly for all dates except for today’s date.

 

When I enter today’s date as noted above, Jaws reads 15oct.

 

I even tried entering tomorrow’s date in the next row of the spreadsheet, and it went back to my preferred listing:  10/17/2018.

 

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with the October 15th row and first spreadsheet cell for today?

 

I don’t understand why this particular row is acting so strangely.

 

I also don’t know how to correct the situation.

Re: Office 2019

Jason White
 

My Office 365 programs, in the About dialog, now indicate that they are “for Office 365”. The 2016 designation is gone. Office 2019 apparently refers only to the stand-alone version, which offers only some of the features of the corresponding Office 365 version. So, for example, Outlook now says “Outlook for Office 365”.

I realise that Office 2019 is really an incremental update if you are an Office 365 subscriber and have applied the updates to 2016 as I am and have, but wanted to double check before I go ahead and install as I only have one Windows PC.

 

It’s not clear to me from the Beta 2 features page whether it does or not.

 

Many thanks,

Others may comment on the accessibility of VPN software, but with many VPN providers, it’s not necessary to use a client at all.  You can simply enter in the various usernames, passwords and server settings manually into Windows itself.  While it’s not for everyone, it’s no more complicated than configuring an email address manually in say Outlook, and you obviously have a wider range of providers (any that publish the necessary server addresses) as you aren’t restricted by the accessibility of their software.

In other words the license servers are currently still automatically authorizing.

This is not the case should you try to use the GWX tool that annoyed so many way back when. Running this you will not be able to complete the upgrade.

I have most recently, three weeks, done this with a Win Seven Pro desktop and Win Seven home laptop, using the media creation tool and running the update.

Re: reading cell content in Excel with Braille

Hi Ann,
That's great! My Brailliant doesn't work at all with 2019. I'm hoping that VFO will fix this when they come out with the full version.

Hi, Julie,

I won! Well, you won. I set Braille mode to structured in the start-up wizzard for JAWS 2019 beta, and the display now shows results of the formula, followed by the actual formula. Yea!

Thanks a lot.

Subject: reading cell content in Excel with Braille

Excel 2016, Jaws 2018 and 2019.

The amount in cell p6, calculated by a formula, is 101188. JAWS speaks
this clearly, saying "101188, has formula." The Braille display,
however, displays only "has formula". If I have JAWS set to speak cell
contents and coordinates, p6 says "p 6", but not the content of the
cell . Turning off the coordinates gives me 'has formula'. How do I
make the display show me the stinkin' 101188 in the cell???

Re: reading cell content in Excel with Braille

What I expected to see was the result of the formula, not the words 'has formula'. Using insert+numpad 5 I can get JAWS to display it,. I am using a focus display.

Re: Accessing html source code with JAWS in internet explorer

Ann Byrne
 

While on the web page, press alt+v, then c; arrow down past the search box and press enter on open.

If you want to create .html code, open your document in notepad and fill in controls from there.

Good luck!

Subject: Accessing html source code with JAWS

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope everyone is having a good day so far. I have not had the need to look at html source code in an extremely long time and now find the need again. I went to the view menu in Internet Explorer and entered on source and JAWS went silent. Am I doing something wrong? Can you not access the source code with JAWS in IE anymore? If not what is an alternative route to take.

Thanks
Joe

JAWS 2019 Beta 3, J2019.1810.35.400 Download Link + What's New

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link for both 32 & 64 bit systems + what's new in this release.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
What's new in this release:
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Help Improve Freedom Scientific Products
 
JAWS 2019 includes a new option which allows us to collect anonymous usage information that is generated as you use the software for your daily tasks.
This data helps us continue to make improvements as well as more easily locate and address problems. Collected data includes JAWS version, operating system
version, language, country, as well as information on various JAWS settings such as the current synthesizer, braille display, and braille table.
 
If you choose to participate, no spoken or braille content is collected and no data is shared with any parties outside of Freedom Scientific. The data
we collect strictly helps us better understand how our software is being used in the field so we can quickly make enhancements to features being used the
most by our customers. If you choose not to participate, then no usage data is collected and transmitted.
 
You can change your selection at any time by doing the following:
 
list of 4 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center and press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file.
2. Navigate to Miscellaneous in the tree view and press RIGHT ARROW to expand the group.
3. Use the SPACEBAR to select or clear the "Submit Anonymous Usage Data" check box.
4. Press ENTER to save your change and close Settings Center.
list end
 
You can also choose whether or not to participate in this program through the Startup Wizard located in the JAWS Help menu.
 
Other Changes
list of 12 items
• In response to customer feedback, JAWS now supports grade 1 literary braille input for languages such as English that offer more than one type of braille
output. For example, if you open the Braille Translation group in Settings Center and set the output to Unified English Braille Grade 1, you will now be
able to choose between computer braille or Unified English Braille Grade 1 for input.
• Resolved an issue where Vocalizer Expressive voices installed with certain languages were being removed during a JAWS uninstall.
• Resolved a reported issue where the wrong help message was being displayed for the "When pausing during character navigation, speak character phonetically"
option in Settings Center.
• Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office with content not being properly aligned in braille when using a language such as Hebrew that displays text using
right-to-left.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where page breaks in Word documents were not being announced by JAWS.
• Addressed a reported issue where Microsoft Word would sometimes close unexpectedly when attempting to edit after spell checking a document.
• In the Windows 10 calculator, resolved an issue where the result was not being spoken automatically.
• A customer using Java SwingSet reported that after restarting JAWS, text was no longer read correctly. This has been resolved.
• Addressed a reported issue where a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) was not working as expected in a Citrix published desktop after locking the client system.
• If Braille Mode is turned off in Google Docs, resolved an issue where the BACKSPACE key was not deleting text as expected.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not reading the ampersand character in Firefox.
• Addressed several localization issues with Russian and Hebrew.
list end
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
