How do I get to a notification balloon that momentarily pops-up?


Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

Sometimes, a notification balloon pops-up telling me about something on my PC.  For a sighted person, they would click on the balloon and would then be taken to the relevant thing.  In JAWS 2019, how can I get to the balloon notification to review it and activate (click on) it?  FYI, I am using Windows 7.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Richard,
 
The keystroke to access a balloon is, Numpad Slash or Left Mouse Click.  You might want to adjust the amount of time the balloon stays on the screen to give you more time to click on it.  To do this try the following:
In Windows 7 it's under "Ease of Access".  Type Ease of Access in to the
search box in the start prompt. In the Ease of Access Center go to, "Make  it
easier to focus on tasks", and hit enter.
Near the end of the options that come up is a combobox with different time settings to adjust the time
that those balloons stay on screen.
I adjusted mine to 1 minute which gives me enough time to find them and
click on them.   
Take care.  Go Rams!

I press Windows key+A. There you have a list of your notifications.

And a balloon is not necessarily the same as what you see in Windows Key + A which is the shortcut for the Action Centre.

Hi,

Have you tried left-click with jaws shortly after the notification? With older Windows and JAWS after 5 seconds. It wasn't important where to click, just click with JAWS keyboard command Left click (numpad / or jaws key+8 if you are using laptop layout).

With best wishes
Artur

It is also possible to change the period of time that popup notifications remain on the screen. They may only stick around for five seconds, which I believe is the default, but this period of time can be lengthened to as much as five minutes before the notification is sent off to the action center.

This adjustment can be found under Settings, Ease of Access, then go to Display. Tab through this dialog and you will find a combo box with the title "show notifications for" and you can then adjust the period of time that they'll stay around.

What do you do in terms of those notifications when it comes to windows 10 are the commands the same or is there something else that has to be done!
