moderated Screen Shade Question


Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

This evening, I will begin teaching an online class via Zoom where I will occasionally need to hide the text of a file I will be using.

 

I understand I can do this via the Jaws screen shade function.

 

I can invoke the screen shade function via insert space F11, and when I do this, I’m told whether the screen shade is on or off.

 

This is easy enough to do, but I have also discovered that the screen shade function can be accessed in the Jaws utilities menu.

 

However, when I arrow down to screen shade and hit enter or the spacebar, nothing happens.

 

Am I missing something?

 

I obviously can invoke the screen shade function via insert space F11, but thought it would be nice to be able to do this quickly in the utilities menu.

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi,

 

Yes, using Screen Shade will not speak from the Utilities Menu and if you are wanting to be sure you have screen shade on it would be best to use the keyboard command.

Thanks, Milton.

 

I hope Freedom Scientific eventually will create a toggle for the screen shade function that speaks, so it can easily be turned on and off right from the utilities menu.
