JAWS keeps speaking the progress of streams


Dave Durber
 

Hello everyone:

On my HP laptop, I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 14. When I am listening to streamed audio from any of the radio stations on the BBc web site, JAWS keeps announcing the elapsed time of any streamd audio I am listening too. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can stop JAWS from doing this.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Dave,

I have two ideas, but someone else may know others. First you can press the
JAWSKey plus the letter S and cycle through what JAWS will say. The choices
are all, none and highlighted. Mine has always defaulted to highlighted.
That will stop it saying the numbers as they advance.

Or you could use the layered keystroke JAWSKey then space and then S. This
has the choices of speech on demand and full speech. Remember with both of
these once you are done with the streaming, you will have to reset them.

Hope this helps!

Debby

The layered keystroke you describe I don't think was available yet in Jaws 14, but I am not entirely certain since I used Jaws 14 a very long time ago, even have to think, in the fall of 2017 Jaws 2018 came out, so Jaws 18 was in 2016, Jaws 17 in 2015 so Jaws 14 would have been released in the fall of 2012. There would have been a keystroke to mute Jaws I think, just not sure if it was the layered keystroke or just Jaws Key+S, also, does the time elapsed still speak if you move focus away from the browser window?

Hello Sieghard:

No! When I return to the desktop or move to another open window, the progress messages for the audio stream are no longer spoken. This problem is a recent one.

To mute and unmute speach in JAWS 14, you press JAWS KEY+SPACE BAR, followed by the letter S.

Hello Debby:

I tried cycling through the options by pressing JAWS KEY+S but, the speaking of the elapsed time are still spoken. By default, like you, the setting is Highlighted.

The layered keystroke, JAWS KEY+S, followed by the letter S, in JAWS 14, is a toggle to mute and unmute JAWS.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Debbie, To stop JAWS from speaking progress bars, hit Insert+V and keep hitting the Down Arrow until you hear General Options. Hit the Down Arrow again 3 times til you hear Progress bar spoken and hit the Space bar. You will hear "Progress bar silent" then hit Enter. Jaws will no longer speak any progress bars.

To add to this, if you just want it in the one app, then make sure you're in
that app before pressing Insert+V. If you want progress bars never to be
spoken, then press Insert+V, then Control+Shift+D to save to the default
settings.

All the best
