moderated Sharky


Ann Byrne
 

On most of my student computers, sharky doesn't work. I have checked the settings, verified there is a working microphone, said the wake word, press insert-alt-spacebar ... nada. No activation sound; no response.

Is anyone having problems with this command? Any idea what may be wrong???


Karen Reynolds
 

Mine works.

I don’t get sharky to respond very often. Actually, I have yet to find anything useful to do with sharky.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Peace be with you,

Most of the time I just get it to tell me a joke, especially after updates. You supposedly can get it to do some commands that Jaws does, but I don’t know which ones.

Also, you can’t just say the word Sharkey, but it works with hey Sharky. And if you want to know a list of JAWS commands that it can do, just say, hey Sharkey, help. You should hear a sound after you say the hey Sharkey prompt that lets you know it’s listening. Hope that helps some.

/Yes, this is the second time it has quit working after a new version. Took
FS tech tons of time and trials to get it working last time. Have not
bothered this time!

Cher,

This is idle curiosity right now, since I don't use Sharky, but does it still work for you in JAWS 2022? Or did you remove 2022 on installing 2023?

I don't use Sharky much, but on my Windows 11 computer and JAWS 2023, Sharky works by just saying hay Sharky without pressing insert and spacebar.

29022 quit working sometime during the monthly updates, i.e. Sharkie was not
working when 2023 was installed. Sorry for the late response, I haven't been
on this list in several days.
