moderated New Notification History and Rules Feature in JAWS 2022


Bill White
 

If any of us should begin using the new Notification History and Rules feature in JAWS 2022, and find that we have made changes that are undesirable, here's how to set everything back to the defaults for Notification History and Rules. I got this from Eric at FreedomScientific.

 

To Remove Notification History And/Or Rules

 

1. Open JAWS Menu with INSERT plus J.

2. Arrow down to Utilities sub menu and press ENTER.

3. Arrow down to Explore Utilities Folder and press ENTER.

4. Arrow down to Explore My Settings and press ENTER.

5. Press BACKSPACE to ascend one folder.

6. Find the folder called Notifications, and press ENTER.

7. To remove notification history, remove the following file,

 

Notifications.json

 

8. To remove notification rules, remove the following file,

 

notification.rules.json

Thanks for that! I was just wondering where those files were. I would have expected the rules file to be in with my settings where they could easily be backed up if desired.

Hi, Gene. I would be interested to know if the notification history and the rules are exported when using the Import/Export Settings feature of Utilities.

Hi Bill!

I would too. I would think that only the rules file would be exported as they would be something you might want to import into other JAWS installations, where as the history is going to be machine and session specific so there wouldn't be much of a point to importing it anywhere.

I can see how that history might be useful to tech support if the situation warrants a look at it though.

Why should you disable this feature?
The old method is also availlable.
After pressing ins-space, press shift-n insteat of n.

Hi, Marten. No one is advocating disabling any feature. What I am saying is
that, if you have rules that you don't want, you can remove all rules at
once by deleting the file called,
notification.rules.json

Otherwise, you must remove each rule, one by one.

This does not remove the Notification Rules Feature, it just removes the
rules that have been previously created.

You can't make or remove rules by using ins-space, followed by shift-n.

My understanding of insert+space, shift+N is to hear the last notification without opening the notifications window as insert+space, N does.

Hi Bill and everyone else!

I just checked this and discovered that while the notification history itself is not backed up by the import/export utility, the notification rules are backed up.
