Re: jaws video card and dvd wmp

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hi,

I rarely turn on or plug in my monitor. The only time I use my monitor is when I am repairing or working on a computer that won’t boot up its’ operating system or when someone is looking over my shoulder at the screen. When my monitor is on I have a tendency of trying to follow the cursor as it moves across the screen and that gives me a tremendous headache. It is a bad habit and I can’t seem to stop it so I keep the screen turned off until required to turn it on.

To answer the second question, JAWS intercepts the video signal before it gets to the monitor. I am pretty sure I’m correct on this, but open for correction.

Subject: jaws video card and dvd wmp

 

hello, just wondering if there is a way of watching copy protected dvd's without having to plug in the monitor.
isn't jaws somehow linked to the video card driver to protect it being copied?
I wonder how many on this list actually have their monitors plugged in.

Re: Use of standard view in Gmail

Shankar C
 

Hi, if your office uses gmail for the Communication, do the following.
1. login with the gmail using your credentials.
2. once you login, the screen reader may announce loading gmail….
3. press letter b key.
4. the screen reader should announce load basic html button, now just
activate the button by pressing space or enter key.
5. now you can view your gmail with basic html.


if you want to set this as default view, go to the links list and
press letter s until your screen reader says set as default view, and
activate the link.

Dear, in about two weaks time the first public beta of JAWS 2019 will be out.

Final version of JAWS 2019 will be out in the last weak of October 2018.

Re: JAWS hotkey for sound

Was your sound card having problems? The way I read that is it helps if the windows sound settings were at 0, or muted, but if it is working normally, it will do nothing but refresh the screen. I found nothing else about reinitializing sound cards.

Re: dragging and dropping with jaws

Dean Martineau
 

I assume you've tried, and copy and paste doesn't work. Anyway, here's a snippet from the JAWS help file:

Drag and Drop (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH)
This command is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another. Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to the position of the active cursor.

Re: I forgot how to do something

Dean Martineau
 

The showing of format markers is an optional Word feature. Mostly, it is undesirable to show them.

There are two ways to toggle the showing of these format markers. The keystroke ctrl+shift+8 on the number row toggles them all on and off. I think when this gets turned on accidentally, the user may have pressed this keystroke by mistake. Press it again and see if that solves the problem.

The other way is to go into Word options with alt+f, t. You then have a list of possible categories. Display is the first, so tab to change those settings. Each of the individual format indicator has its own check box, so tab through the page and ensure that each is set the way you want it.

Hi, Jim. Here are three different methods for stopping space markers and paragraph markers from being spoken.

Two Alternate Ways To Stop Announcement of Paragraph And Space Markers


1. Press CONTROL SHIFT 8 (on the numbers row.


Second Way:

Press ALT plus H, followed by 8 (on the numbers row)


Third Way To Stop Announcement of Paragraphs And Spaces


press ALT, then F for the file ribbon, then T for options dialog.
Type D or arrow to select the Display category and press TAB until you get to the "Show these formatting marks" on the screen section.
Make sure the following are unchecked (press the spacebar to check or uncheck and continue to TAB to the next setting):

Tab characters check box
Spaces check box
Paragraph marks check box
Show all formatting marks check box

the last one, the Show all formatting marks check box, is important to uncheck.
keep pressing TAB to and SPACEBAR on the OK button.
