Contact FS, and report this. I also have issues with JAWS 2018 and Office 365. Mine are with Word. I cannot properly read information in tables, so I can see how this would transfer over to Excel.

Hi List,

One of my executives is having quite a few issues with Jaws 2018 and Office 365 Excel 2016, the latest build of both under Windows 7. 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.

Regards,

Brian

Re: How to get the old Alt Tab dialog in Windows 10 Back

Hi Brian & All,
 
It's very accessible.  All that's required to do is arrowing, tabbing and using the spacebar to check or uncheck options.

I will note that if it's accessible, and based on this topic I suspect it is, at least partially, Winaero Tweaker is a really, really nice tool.  It gives you a lot of control over the UI and it's just as easy to undo something you've done as it is to try it out.

Two Problems While Reading PDFs

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi All,

Hope all well. The two problems are:
A. In PDF documents, JAWS doesn't reliably remain on the line on which
I was before, say, pressing alt-tab to jump to another window. It
keeps going up and down a bit for no apparent reason. Sometimes, it
jumps up/ down entire pages on its own.
2. For a lot of PDF documents, I am not able to get to the desired
page number by entering the same in the ctrl+shift+n box. Any
thoughts?

I use JAWS 2018, latest version, with Win 10.

Best,
Rahul

#jaws How to stop Jaws constantly reading call status on Cisco IP communicator? #jaws

Mark S
 

Hello,

I have a client using JAWS who uses Cisco IP communicator, when making phone calls, JAWS repeatedly reads the call status out loud while she is trying to deal with the call, this only started happening a few weeks go as it never did this before.  From what I understand the control key works as normal, but doesn't in this case, when there is an incoming call, she has found a work around of using control + tab + 1 but would like a better solution.

Not being familiar with the JAWs software, is there anyway to completely disable this or better key combos? A ay to reenable the normal control command for this action?

Re: creating a usb bootable drive

netbat66
 

maybe so, but useing a 16gb flash drive will leave space for jaws, nvda,open book etc.
and they don't cost much now.
so you could install them all from the same flash drive.
also, with my u s b 2, 8gb flash drives will not work vary well with my u s b 3 ports. half the time windows 7 or 10 will detect them or they will but windows will say the drives are empty or need to be formatted. even though i know there are files on them.
i can put them on a u s b 2 port and they work fine.
i haven't had these problems with my 32gb u s b 2 flash drives i have now. they work on both ports.
i haven't tried u s b 3 flash drives yet.

Re: How to get the old Alt Tab dialog in Windows 10 Back

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Dean,
 
The difference I'm finding after switching to the classic style is you get the desktop back.  What I mean is let's say you have Notepad, Word, Firefox,
& Dropbox all open, and you close all the mentioned windows.  With the default Windows 10 setting you land on an empty screen, so you have to invoke the Windows key
+ D, or M, keystroke to get back to the desktop.  Using the classic mode, after you close the previously mentioned windows you Alt + Tab and you're back
on the desktop.  Depending on individual settings this could be different, but this is the difference on my personal computer.  Now, I'm not going to debate
whether one is better than the other because whether I choose the Windows 10 default or the classic mode is  entirely my choice and noone elses.  Like
I said in the original post, the tweak was only mentioned because I've read many people wanting the Alt + Tab back to the desktop option back, and this
gives them that option.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

I would like an explanation of this.  How, for a screen reader user who doesn’t notice how the windows are represented, is the new alt+tab different from the old one?  They seem the same to me, and Windows+tab is entirely different.

Hi Dean,

 

I prefer it much better than the default Alt + Tab method.  But, my preferences are exactly that, my preferences.  I only put this out because I've read many times how people don't like the way the default Alt + Tab works and are suggested to use Windows key + Tab instead.

Does this process benefit screen reader users?  The current alt+tab approach seems pretty responsive to me.

Hi All,

 

Running Windows 10 Pro and Jaws latest.  I came across this, tried it and it works as advertised.  I didn't do the registry hack personally, but downloaded the program and made the change with their program.  Here's the website to hear how it works and the download link & steps are below the website URL.

 

 

To download the program click on the link below, press the letter, B for button, then up arrow a few times to the download link.

Yup. You can also once on a highlighted application, access the context menu and go through the options of moving a program to another virtual desktop, have the same window appear on all desktops, etc.

Very helpful when you’re working with multiple desktops all the time like I do.

My understanding is that Windows+Tab gets you into the task view, you can also get to this by tabbing from the desktop or going to the taskbar with Windows Key+T and then doing a Shift+Tab.

If you have open applications then Windows+Tab will bring up a list of these applications, you can arrow left and right in that list and press enter to go to any of them which are listed.

Just now that I have Outlook open and I am composing this message if I press Windows+Tab I have two items in that list, one is the Inbox and one is this email which I am composing.
