JAWS 2019: JAWS often speaks version number when navigating or opening some dialogs


David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Hi. I'm using JAWS 2019 on Windows 10 Pro. At times when opening a JAWS dialog I often will hear JAWS announce the full version number of the JAWS program before I hear the prompt of the dialog which I am expecting. This version information is the same information you will hear if you open the JAWS window and press insert+up arrow to read the current line. It does not happen often and so it is very difficult to reproduce. Has anybody else noticed this issue?

Is it possible Jaws actually crashes and reloads itself since you would hear the Jaws version at that time.

I have noticed the same problem and I am using the latest version of JAWS 2018.  In particular when in IE and I hit a JAWS key F7 to open a list of links it says the version of JAWS before saying "Links List Dialogue".  I haven't taken time yet to investigate why.  Open to ideas to fix this problem/annoyance.

I rarely ever use iE any more, but I just tried it with Jaws 2019 on 4 different websites and not once did Jaws speak it's version when I pressed Jaws Key+F7. Not sure what could be causing this, have you called FS tech support to see if they know anything about this?
