Re: wierd issue with JFW 2018 and outlook 2016, being used via office 365?

Jessica,

Not sure if you have gotten a reply on this.

 

In terms of reminders, you can arrow through the list and either tab to a snooze or dismiss button. I also thing Alt D is the shortcut to dismiss a reminder.  I also sometimes just hit escape to remove the reminder window temporarily.

 

For threading, Outlook by default arranges messages in groups.  I think you need to turn that off first.  Go to the View ribbon and to the Arrange By button.  Alt arrow down to open the list and arrow down to Show in Groups and hit enter to uncheck that option.  Once you have done that. Go back to the View ribbon and to the Show in conversations button, and press enter on that.  You should now be in threads.

Hi,

As the subject states, I’m using Jaws 2018, with outlook 2016, via office 365, and am having a weird issue.

 

  1. I can’t ssort my emails into threads.
  2. I can’t figure out how to dismiss reminders, when they come up.

What can I do?

 

Thanks,

Jessica

Re: JAWS and MS Edge

Van Lant, Robin
 

I agree that JAWS seems particularly verbose in Edge.  I have not found settings yet to adjust this, as the same sites in IE 11 read fine, so I think it’s an Edge issue, not a JAWS settings issue.  I’m still with IE and Chrome until Edge is improved.

Good morning, I am a brand new subscriber.  I have a question concerning reading Websites in MS Edge.  When arrowing up and down through Web pages, JAWS says things like "column 1 row 1" and then reads the content of that cell(?).  Or when entering a list it will announce "list with 3 items" (or something along those lines, and then proceed to give you information about links and whatnot in that list.  I find this very cumbersome and would like to know if there is any way to stop those kinds of announcements.  I have already gone through "verbosity" and set everything to advanced or to ignore table headings and such.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

P.S., I have been a JAWS user since JAWS 1.X.

Hi again, Tom. As Andrew said, to exit forms mode, you can also use NumPad Plus, which is the JAWS Cursor key. In Laptop Keyboard Layout, the equivalent is:

 

CAPSLOCK plus Semicolon.

Apart from pressing enter on n edit box, is there any other keyboard command Which will allow the manual turning on of form mode? What about a keyboard command, apart from  escape, to turn off form mode.

I followed Steve’s instructions, as I needed to make this change, too.  I did not find PDF in the initial list of default app settings, but there was a link to other file types.  I clicked that and was able to move down the long list of alphabetical file types and click that button to make the adjustment to Adobe.

Firstly press your Windows key, then type Default Programs and press enter.

 

Now tab around until you hear PDF then Edge, which will be a button.  Press space on it, and change it with up and down arrows to Acrobat Reader DC.

 

Now any PDF file will open in DC.

Re: soft phone companies

Van Lant, Robin
 

I am sure I saw a recent news update from either NFB or ACB about the Cisco soft phone becoming accessible.  We use Cisco phones at my office and I know of the keyboard shortcuts, but I don’t get many calls or need the menu features, so I have not bothered to look into the accessibility.  I have a phone unit that sits on my desk with a standard button set up.  If a call is coming in, I can technically also answer it through my laptop speakers with the keyboard shortcuts, but I don’t choose to do this.  The only other accommodation I make for myself is to have an email sent to me when I get a voicemail, since I cannot see the red light on my phone unit that tells me I have a voicemail.

Re: couple of Jaws questions

Hi, Tom. If you type JAWS key plus six on the numbers row, you will go into Settings Center.

 

Here, in the Search Box, type the word:

 

extended.

 

This will bring up two search results, both in General>Keyboard.

 

Use Extended Insert

JAWS Insert KeyGeneralKeyboard

The second result is:

 

Differentiate Between Numpad Keys and Extended Keys

GeneralKeyboard

 

One of these results is probably what you want.

we used to have Accessaphone at my office and it only works with Cisco phones. It is also natoriously difficult to install, but once it is working, it is great!
Our State switched to IBM last year, and they do not offer any accessible interface, but their system will send you an email when you get a voice mail.
Accessaphone was great because it had caller ID if someone was calling your extension directly.

I am trying to figure out if my issue is FireFox, JAWS or computer related.

 

After downloading FireFox 61.0.2, when I use FireFox at times it will freeze, disappear and my cpu speed will increase to 40 – 80% and sound like it is working hard. When the FireFox is closed, the cpu speed returns to normal (0 – 20%).

 

We have uninstalled and reinstalled FireFox and still experiencing the same issue.

 

Is anyone else having this  experience or any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

Hi there.  Just to add to what has already been said here, if you purchase an update, it is a good idea to update your authorization.  You can find this option under the JAWS help menu.  This should update your information, and what is displayed for how many updates you have remaining, etc.  Hope this helps.

When  you purchased the SMA when exactly was that and what version of Jaws were you on at the time?

An SMA covers 2 major Jaws updates so basically it is good for two years. If you are currently on Jaws 2018 and have 1 upgrade remaining then this will cover the update to Jaws 2019 which is coming up most likely in late October as usual.

Then you will be down to 0 and $120 will get you the next two updates, they would allow you to get Jaws 2020 in the fall of 2019 and Jaws 2021 in the fall of 2020.

I believe you need to buy the SMA by the end of 2018 to get the best deal but you can probably buy it as late as September or October 2019 as long as it is before Jaws 2020 comes out, but that is something you have to confirm with FS.

If you buy it let’s say in mid December you then would have to buy another 2 years later, I always buy my next SMA more or less as soon as I use up my last update, then I won’t forget.

Sieghard

Open the Jaws context menu, press enter on, About, route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, Jaws key + Numpad minus, go to the top of the page, and read down 1 line at a time and you'll find all your SMA info below your serial number / Locking code.

Hello to set interview reader is the default viewer four PDF go to settings on your start menu then select apps then select set file types by app or it might say select click on that or select it signed a w reader on the list then hit set as default you also might want to look in the settings while you're in default apps area and see if there's any way to change it there as well.
One other thing you can do if you can find the PDF in question selected and press Alt Enter that will take you to the file property dialog box hit choose on the general tab that will bring up a list of suggested apps select Adobe Reader on that and then hit okay or and then close the dialog box all should go well with that.
