No, but if you do it from your desktop, it will be global.

Thanks, I was looking for it in the main Settings, Jaws Key+6. Apparently this only applies to specific applications because typing “focus” in the search box in the main Settings Centre does not find such an option.

Hi Sieghard,

 

While in any application open Jaws quick settings with, Jaws key + V, type, focus, into the Search field, or down arrow to the, Focus loss announcement, checkbox.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi, Val. Here's what I do concerning the Lost Focus message. I turn it on for specific applications. I have it off for the Windows configuration, which is what loads when the system first boots up. I keep the Lost Focus message on for any application that requires editing, such as Notepad, Word, Wordpad, HJPad, Outlook, Internet Explorer, etc. This way, if I'm attempting to stay in an edit field, and the window loses focus, I won't waste my time typing into a non-focused window without an edit field.

Exactly.  You don't even need the message, because you know it loses focus every time you boot up.

But it is a personal choice, if you like extra babble, leave it on.

Hi,

You don't need it on, if you're an experienced JAWS user, because you type, then check. If JAWS loses focus, it will speak the newly activated window usually. It never loses focus completely when you're in an app in my experience.

I would think it would be helpful to leave the announcement on because, say, you're typing away on a reply to an email and suddenly JAWS looses focus on the window where you're typing a reply. if the announcement is turned off, much of what you typed might not make it into the reply (or whatever you're doing). apply a similar situation to typing a letter in Word or a note in Notepad, etc.

Press INSERT plus V. In the search box that comes up, type Focus. The result which comes up will be Focus Loss Announcement. Space once to turn it off. TAB to OK, and press ENTER. It will now be off.

I think it very much depends on the computer. I just set up 4 PC's at my store with Windows 10, 2 were new HP Elite Mini Business PC's which came with Windows 7 preinstalled via downgrade rights, but in any case, I replace their 500MB conventional hard drives with SSD's, the other 2 were Intel NUC mini PC's also with SSD's. Anyhow, I did complete clean installs of Windows 10 including deleting the partitions and recreating them and all of these systems go straight to the desktop after I put in my password and Jaws loads.

Sieghard

Hi Val,

Actually, if you boot up to Windows then immediately press JAWS key and T, you get Lost Focus, so I believe Dan is wrong in this. If you press any key after boot up, then focus is sometimes regained.

Val, just curious, the guy that told you to turn the announcement off, is he truly blind or can he see enough to get by with magnification to use his computer, and does he have a fix to prevent this issue from happening?

again, I recommend not to turn it off for the reason I posted. FS put this feature in because blind users have in the past complained about JAWS occasionally loosing focus on the program they were typing in, which makes cense since you'd want to know so they can continue with what they were doing instead of wondering what happened to all of my work.

just trying to offer some advice.

Hi Carolyn!

A guy who is totally blind, and works with computers told me to turn the anouncement off, so i have.

While i'm on, bought a Logitech bluetooth keyboard for my fire tablet as i'm not getting on very well with the touch screen.

The thing is, now i can't get a list of the key strokes anywhere.

Do you happen to know of anyone who may have them?

If you do, you could maybe send them to me.


Thanks.

Hi all,

Val, it's one of those personal choice things. Turn it off if it annoys you. It certainly annoys the heck out of me. You really don't need it, unless your computer loses focus all the time.

And yes, I am totally blind.

Hi Val,

Actually, if you boot up to Windows then immediately press JAWS key and T, you get Lost Focus, so I believe Dan is wrong in this. If you press any key after boot up, then focus is sometimes regained.

All the best

Steve

Hi Dan!

I have unactivatated in the verbosity menue the button which gives out that message, and everything seems to be fine.

This system is only a few months old.

Thanks.

Press JAWS KEY A, and then try any keys or key combinations. JAWS will announce if they have any purpose.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn!

A guy who is totally blind, and works with computers told me to turn the anouncement off, so i have.

While i'm on, bought a Logitech bluetooth keyboard for my fire tablet as i'm not getting on very well with the touch screen.

The thing is, now i can't get a list of the key strokes anywhere.

Do you happen to know of anyone who may have them?

If you do, you could maybe send them to me.


Thanks.

Hi!

I know you are, and i appreciate that.

The guy actually posted that advice to the list, and it just so happened when i heard his name i knew him!

As far as i know, he's totally blind.

He has a business over her in the uk.

If you look at the post for around 8 a.m or thereabouts you'll see his name.


I don't want to say too much don't want it coming back on me.

Thanks again.

again, I recommend not to turn it off for the reason I posted. FS put
this feature in because blind users have in the past complained about
JAWS occasionally loosing focus on the program they were typing in,
which makes cense since you'd want to know so they can continue with
what they were doing instead of wondering what happened to all of my work.

just trying to offer some advice.

Val, don't worry about the lack of focus message. My JAWS gives the same message when I turn on the computer and I just press my shortcut keys to open my email and go into Word.

Have a happy day.

I would think it would be helpful to leave the announcement on because, say, you're typing away on a reply to an email and suddenly JAWS looses focus on the window where you're typing a reply. if the announcement is turned off, much of what you typed might not make it into the reply (or whatever you're doing). apply a similar situation to typing a letter in Word or a note in Notepad, etc.
