moderated TURNING OFF THE SCREEN ON A LAPTOP WITH JAWS 2019


John J. Fioravanti, Jr.
 

                Good morning:

I know in Jaws 2022, there’s a way to turn off the screen on a laptop, (screen curtain). Can this be done with Jaws 2019?

 

Alternatively, is there software I can install to do this?

 

Thanks.


Steve Nutt
 

I don’t think so, but personally I don’t think turning off the screen is ever a good idea.

 

Supposing you lose speech one day, and you need sighted help to get it back? What if JAWS is running but the soundcard isn’t working? You then have no speech and no screen.

 

It’s a dangerous setting in my view.

 

All the best


Steve

Just type control+ windows +enter to bring up Narrator.

You will at least get your screen back.

 

Turning the screen off can be a wise security advantage at times depending who has access to seeing your screen.

Not if your sound card is misconfigured, or Narrator is going to the wrong sound card.

What I did back then was to take advantage of a feature in most laptops.

In most laptops you can adjust the screen brightness by using Fn+up arrow or Fn+down arrow where Fn is the laptop's blue function key which is located between the alt and control along side the windows key just to the left of the space bar.

I would just turn the screen's brightness all the way down.

If you are running JAWS 2019 you should be able to use the JAWS screen shade feature.

To toggle the screen shade on or off press JAWS+space where JAWS is your JAWS key (either insert or caps lock), this will enter JAWS' layered mode. Then press F11 or Print Screen.

It should be available on any version of JAWS starting with 2019. So for JAWS 2022 that would be a yes.

From what I found on Vispero's web site, the screen shade feature was available in earlier versions of JAWS but couldn't be used on some laptops because their keyboards lacked a print screen key, so they added F11 as an alternative way to activate the feature in JAWS 2019.

If you want to find out from your copy of JAWS what it supports, press JAWS+space to enter layered mode, then press the question mark to get layered mode help. You'll get a browseable list of layered mode features and what key to use to get to them.

If  on an airplane or somewhere where strangers are too close to me, I just tilt the laptop lid at an angle toward me so that the screen is not visible.  My knuckles might hit the screen occasionally as I type certain keys, but I am hesitant to turn on screen shade for the reasons Steve said and the angle of the screen would make it difficult or impossible for someone to see what I’m doing.

Although I don't agree with any argument for not using the screenshade, either with the Jaws function, or with the laptop's function, because if you are referring to the laptop's feature, you can plug it into an external monitor if you have to do for sighted assistance, I would also suggest that one can tape a sheet of paper to the top and it can be flipped up if it is needed.

I use a wired keyboard and just plug it into the pc.

 

I can keep the top down.  Any normal, wired or wireless will let you just use a normal keyboard, rather than the laptop keyboard which I've never liked.

 

You can keep the top down, and even put the keyboard on top if you don't want anyone to see your screen.

That's what I do when I'm at home, but when you are traveling, unless you want to carry an extra piece of equipment around with you, you have to use the laptop's keyboard.

That's in Jaws 22, it didn't work for me in 19.

If you are running JAWS 2019 you should be able to use the JAWS screen shade feature.

To toggle the screen shade on or off press JAWS+space where JAWS is your JAWS key (either insert or caps lock), this will enter JAWS' layered mode. Then press F11 or Print Screen.

In most laptops you can adjust the screen brightness by using Fn+up
arrow or Fn+down arrow where Fn is the laptop's blue function key
which is located between the alt and control along side the windows
key just to the left of the space bar.

I would just turn the screen's brightness all the way down.

Good morning:

I know in Jaws 2022, there’s a way to turn off the screen on a
laptop, (screen curtain). Can this be done with Jaws 2019?

Alternatively, is there software I can install to do this?

Thanks.

The option is in 19, but not on windows 7.
You were probably using windows 7 when you tried it with Jaws 2019.

Really? If you go to the what's new in JAWS page on Vispero's web site, then choose that you want to see what's new in JAWS 2018, further down in the enhancements for the March update it says they added JAWS+space,F11 as an alternative way to toggle the screen shade because some laptop keyboards didn't have a print screen which, to me, says that the screen shade feature is already in place using JAWS+space,Print Screen.
