moderated Extra Verbiage in the November 2021 JAWS 2021 Update When Using Alt+Tab to Cycle Between All Running Applications


Steve Nutt
 

Hi,

 

I also can’t duplicate the problem with JAWS 2021. However, I have seen it with Narrator as well.

 

Does it happen to you with Narrator?

 

All the best


Steve

I’m not sure if others have noticed this problem. I will say that this does not affect any of the JAWS 2022 betas or the final version.

With the latest update for JAWS 2021 I am noticing some extra wording when holding down the alt key and repeatedly pressing the tab key to navigate through running applications. When you first press this key combination JAWS will say “”task switching, running applications list box.” I have noticed this behavior on two different computers, both of which are running Windows 10 version 21 H1.

This behavior does not occur if you press and then release alt+tab to open the last application which had focus.

I have reported this to Vispero support but they were unable to duplicate the problem.

I can also confirm that by each alt+tab, I can hear: "task switching,
running applications list box, 2 of 15" announcement. Yet, after the
first message, one navigating by alt+tab by holding on the Alt key
would not hear it, unless leave the Alt, and start alt+tabbing again.

I have been able to duplicate the problem, but the excessive wording happens once only.

 

I can live with it.
