Yes, Kevin. If you go to your Status Line using F6, you can right click with your Applications key, or SHIFT plus F10, and check what is included on the status line. One of these options is Word Count.

Bill, I pressed F6 twice. I get the message “return to reading”. I couldn’t tab or arrow anywhere. Wonder if I need to setup some option in word to allow the use of two F6 keys. When it comes down to it, I have the key strokes of alt/r/w or control/shift/g.

Jaws2019.1810.6 Beta 2 Download Link + What's New

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
The Jaws download link below works for both 32 and 64 bit operating systems.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
What's New article:
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the first Public Beta and Public Beta 2. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Speak Character Phonetically After Pause During Character Navigation
 
As you navigate by character, JAWS will now speak the phonetic representation of letters if you pause for a brief period of time. This enables you to immediately
hear a letter spoken phonetically without the need to perform an additional command.
 
By default, JAWS speaks the character phonetically after a one and a half second pause. To change the amount of time JAWS waits before the phonetic announcement,
or to completely turn off this feature, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center.
2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default
settings file.
3. Type "Phonetic."
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to "When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically," then press SPACEBAR to cycle through the available
options.
5. Select OK to exit Settings Center.
list end
 
JAWS also offers a manual option to speak phonetics continuously as you navigate by character. Pressing the Say Character Keystroke (NUM PAD 5) twice quickly
toggles this feature on and off. If you are using the manual option for all letters, the pause announcement will not occur.
 
Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS Now Optional
 
When you perform one of the commands to exit JAWS including INSERT+F4, a prompt displays asking if you are sure you want to quit JAWS. You can then press
ENTER to quit or ESC to cancel. JAWS 2019 now allows you to disable this prompt so that JAWS immediately exits. To disable the shutdown prompt, open the
Basics dialog box located in the JAWS Options menu, and clear the "Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS" check box.
 
Notification of Spelling Errors in Word 365
 
JAWS was the first screen reader to introduce Spelling error detection in Microsoft Word around 1998. This feature indicated when the cursor moved into
or out of a spelling or grammatical error while navigating and was also able to count the errors on the current line. These errors could also be marked
in Braille with dots 7 and 8. However, the ability to count the errors and mark them in braille adversely affected the responsiveness of navigating the
document and was turned off by default.
 
The improvements to this feature in JAWS 2019 now offer the following above and beyond the prior functionality:
 
list of 4 items
• Play a buzzer sound during typing, when you press SPACEBAR after entering a misspelled word.
• Reliably underline errors in braille or count the errors on the line navigated to without any decrease in responsiveness.
• Detect advanced proofing issues, not just spelling and grammar errors.
• Read the error inline with the text as you navigate by line, similar to how JAWS indicates other text attributes such as bolded text, indicating the
error with speech, sound or voice change (using the Speech and Sounds Manager).
list end
 
To configure whether or not the buzzer sound is heard when SPACEBAR is pressed after mistyping a word, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from Word or Outlook
and select or clear the "Spelling buzzer on mistyped words" check box. This option is available when using JAWS with Office 365 versions higher than 16.0.10000.
 

The other Spelling options in the Microsoft Word Quick Settings, "Spelling error detection" and "Grammatical error detection," currently remain the same.
They allow you to cycle Spelling and Grammar options between off, hearing spelling/Grammar errors as you navigate by character, word, line, or Say All,
or hearing spelling/Grammar errors plus count.
 
New Consolidated Setup Package
 
Starting with JAWS 2019 Public Beta 2, there is now one link to download and install JAWS for all supported operating systems and languages. You no longer
have to choose the correct setup executable based on your system as well as which language you need. When you begin the setup, the installer automatically
detects whether you are using 32 or 64-bit and installs the correct components. If you are doing a new install and you want to use a different language
other than the default for your operating system, select the Options button on the first installation screen and then choose a language. If you are updating
an existing installation, the Options button is not available as JAWS detects the language already installed and updates using the same language.
 
Other Changes
list of 17 items
• Resolved an issue with the Skim Reading Feature in Office 365/2016 and higher. When attempting to skim read text containing specific colors or attributes,
pressing ENTER on any of the links in the Skim Reading results was incorrectly moving you to the first entry each time.
• Addressed reported issues with the volume of system sounds being lowered unexpectedly in some situations when using external synthesizers.
• In response to customer feedback, the announcement of multi-line edit fields is now off by default. To enable this announcement, select the new "Announce
multi-line edit" option located in the Miscellaneous group in Settings Center.
• If the "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is cleared, resolved multiple issues where JAWS was not reading as expected
in some situations.
• When starting a Remote Desktop connection and JAWS is configured to launch automatically on the remote system, resolved an issue where an error message
about the accessibility driver was sometimes being displayed.
• When opening a page in Chrome, resolved an intermittent issue reported by some users where a page would appear blank until F5 was pressed to refresh.
• Resolved an issue where the edit field for setting a home page in the settings for Chrome could not be navigated to using JAWS.
• Addressed an issue in Google Chrome where JAWS was not announcing the currently selected item in combo boxes.
• If multiple check boxes are on a single line in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where JAWS was only speaking the first check box.
• Resolved an issue where the window title was sometimes not being updated in Chrome as expected. For example, when returning to the Inbox in Gmail from
an open message.
• JAWS no longer speaks extraneous information when typing in edit combo boxes in Firefox and Chrome.
• Added support for navigating tree views in Edge.
• Resolved an issue with the JAWS command to announce the application version (CTRL+INSERT+V) not always working as expected in Microsoft Office apps.
• When switching to Outlook 365 from another application, addressed issues where focus changes were not being announced properly.
• Addressed issues with comments, footnotes, and endnotes not being announced as expected when navigating documents in Office 365. Also, resolved an issue
where page, section, and column breaks in Word documents were being announced twice if JAWS was configured to speak the number of comments on a line.
• In Excel, addressed a customer reported issue with auto complete not working as expected when typing data into a cell.
• Resolved an issue where the Select All command in the Spanish version of Word was not working.
list end
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Interesting, this brings up the exact same Word Count dialog as ALT+R,W does.  

When you hover over controls it will typically show you if there is a shortcut that is of the form Modifier Key + Single Additional Key.  The Word Count control doesn't do that and I'm guessing that it's because CTRL+SHIFT+G (and it is a triple key press shortcut) is a triple key press shortcut.

As per usual, there are many roads to the Rome.

The only keystroke I know of, is the F6 keystrokes and you have to tap to the word count we might have to control tab as well if it’s not there on the first ring.

sounds like better training than Basma, but VR doesn’t want to cover
anything out of state like that, so I’m trying to find another option to be
trained on using screen readers in general so I can stay employed rather I
stay at this job or move to another. i’d like to move to another word
Jaws is allowed if I can get trained on Jaws. The rest of total blame
training I’m not really concerned about staying employed is top priority



thanks

Tom Coburn

F6 twice will get you to the status bar. From here, your arrows will show you word count, as well as other items.

Hello, Is there a key stroke to get the word count in a MS word 2016 document? I’m using Windows 10 and Jaws 2018.

Thanks,

Kevin

Jaws 2019 beta 2

I have not seen any improvement relative to how long it takes to load Jaws with either beta.


Re: Accessible Business Management Software

Van Lant, Robin
 

Hi,
I wanted to share another potential idea on this thread. I got an estimate via email yesterday from a local computer repair shop. He is using something called Fresh books. The email gave me a link to the estimate, which was easy to read with my iPhone, so likely with JAWS. I then clicked on a button at the bottom to accept the estimate to have them begin on the work. I was then prompted if I wanted to save the estimate within the site. From a customer perspective, it seemed really speech friendly. I cannot speak to the accessibility on the other end, but it's nice to have another option to consider. If it's a smaller company, maybe they would be easier to talk to about accessibility. There is a free trial period on the page link below.

Here is the tag line and link from the bottom of the email I got with my estimate.
Create invoices, track expenses and collaborate on projects with FreshBooks.

QuickBooks Online does usually offer a 30 day trial.

Yes, Quickbooks is not free software and the scripts which you need
for it to be accessible cost several hundred Dollars. No good solution
for something like this will most likely be free.
There is also Quickbooks Online which is a subscription service. It is
quite accessible at this point, apparently even more so on an iOS
device and Quickbooks takes accessibility quite serious and they are
working constantly on making the service work even better. Keep in
mind, though, that Quickbooks is primarily an accounting package and
while just as with any good accounting package you can track customers
and suppliers, if you don't know at least some basics of accounting it
maybe difficult to learn it and there will definitely be a good bit of
learning involved and you might want to consider inquiring about Quickbooks courses.

Regards,
Sieghard

I couldn't click on the link. Was it turned off? Also, does QuickBooks
have to be purchased? If so, how much does it cost?

Don't store credit card numbers on your computer!! If you do, you
will have to be pci compliant and that is a pain in the neck. Use a
processing service instead, like stripe.com -- for a low volume operation this is quite nice.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I know this might sound complicated, but I'm wondering, do any of you
JAWS members out there know if there's a software that works with
JAWS, with which I can manage customer accounts? When I start my
company making products and services that are accessible for people of
all abilities, I want to be able to have an accessible software for
managing customers' information, such as billing addresses, shipping
addresses, order numbers, and receipts, for when they want to purchase
a product or service from my company. I guess you could say I'm
thinking of a software for management of customers' orders. Are there any good business management softwares out there that work well with JAWS?

Re: JAWS 2019 Beta 2

 

I should have mentioned that the size of the installer is down from around 180 Mb to now around 100 or 101 Mb, but obviously required components are downloaded during the installation. Nonetheless on all of my PC’s which I have upgraded the installation took anywhere from 1.5 to 3 minutes and it seems faster than ever. But I am also a beta tester and one person in particular has reported the install took 12 minutes for him even though he has apparently a very fast fibre internet connection. Most people however report pretty fast install times.

I didn’t check if the offline installer is already being offered, but if not then eventually it will be, this however is still OS specific, e.g. 32 bit and 64 bit, but it’s I think a 600 or 700 Mb download but then everything from OCR components to all languages are included allowing for installation without any internet connection. I think this is primarily meant for organisations where employees may not be allowed to download/install stuff from the internet, I don’t see much use for it personally since the regular installer which download during the install process works so well.
