hear myh speech say "jaws" and i have to press the numeric + to get back
to pc.

I just found the PictureSmart folder in My Pictures and pasted a Jpeg into this folder.  Nothing happened.  When I pressed JAWS key plus Space bar then P then F, JAWS then described the picture, but it did not start automatically with JFW 2019.

Another way is, if you have a picture as a .JPEG or some other picture format save it somewhere, then copy / paste it into the Picture Smart folder and once it's pasted into this folder the Picture Smart feature will start on it as soon as it's pasted.  The Picture Smart folder is located in your User Name folder as a sub-folder of the My Pictures folder.

moderated Google chrome not recognizing the carousel

Ann Byrne
 

Google Chrome, windows 10, JAWS 2019 and 2020. It was the case that the carousel on my desktop switched from item a, to b, to c. I went into google Chrome settings and broke it. I dondidn't mean to change anything. Now the carousel doesn't move, so JAWS reports it as Item a only. which of course makes sense.

Which setting(s) in Chrome would cause a carousel not to refresh?

Thanks,

Hi.

 

When I’m typing an e-mail, in the to field, jaws will play a sound that indicates recent people you’ve contacted. Is there a way to turn this off, and where do I find it?

 

Thanks.

Hi Ann,
 
If I remember correctly the Personalized settings used to be in Jaws quick settings, Insert _+ B, while on the website.  Try searching in there or going towards the bottom of quick settings to find them.

I am working with a web page in JAWS 2019 that includes a
carousel.  On one computer, the carousel works flawlessly, refreshing
every few seconds with new data.  On the other computer, the first
option is there, and it will not automatically cycle through to the
other two.  I have compared JAWS settings on the two computers line
by line, and they are the same.  but the non-cooperative computer has
personalized settings and the cooperative one does not.  How can I
removed personalized web settings?

BTW I have done insert+spacebar then z to remove stray settings, and
it doesn't change anything: the carousel still doesn't go around.

OK I have a weird annoying minor problem. Every time I receive new mail with mail app JAWS will focus to the mail window. I don’t have this problem when running NVDA. Is anyone else experience this in WIN 10? I’m running JAWS 2020.

Hi John and others,

For a picture on a website, you can right click or use the application key while focused on the image. Copy it to clipboard.

Then insert spacebar, P and B should describe the picture on the clipboard.

It works perfectly for me in a Microsoft Exchange folder, but it doesn’t report the number of messages in an IMAP folder.

As Seigart said, you need to use the num pad on your keyboard.  Following his clear instructions nets the result he mentioned, I tested it and got the same message he stated, save I have more messages.

When I press insert plus the 3, it says""pass key through."

I'm using Jaws 2020, windows ten and Outlook 2016.

That keystroke works for me, but when it doesn’t it usually is because Outlook is displaying some message somewhere which you may or may not be able to get to with Jaws to dismiss it.

I used to be able to press JAWS key plus 3 on the number pad & it would tell me how many email messages I have.  I use Outlook 2016, Windows 10 & JAWS 2018.  How do I get this to work again?

 

Thank you.

This is what I get and have been getting for quite some time. I’d just given up on it ever working

All Unread Search Current Mailbox (Ctrl+E) Current Mailbox, not very helpful. At one time I asked about this and was told no one else had this issue.

I have a regular keyboard plugged into my laptop.  I have the number pad next to the qwerty keyboard.

Pass Key Through is Insert + 3 on the number row

Does your computer have a numeric pad and are you using the desktop keyboard layout with Jaws or laptop layout?

If I press Insert + 3 on the numeric pad (that would be the Page Down key otherwise) Jaws reads the status line in Outlook, like this:

 

Items in View 15, Unread Items in View 14, Progress All folders are up to date. Connectivity to your server. Connected to: Microsoft Exchange, Zoom 100%

 

Best regards,
