moderated using Jarte with JAWS


Mario
 

an acquaintance is using Jarte with JAWS 2020 on Windows 10, and when he types, the letters are announced, but when he attempts to review what he wrote, JAWS just says nothing. I asked him to do a few things, and discovered pressing insert+homerow 5 announces black on black. his wife who is sighted says that the lettering is black on a white background, but the untyped area is blackish blue. shouldn't the untyped background be white?

what needs to be done in order to have JAWS read what has been typed if he needs to check what he typed or navigate to a misspelling to correct?

might there be some settings other than fiddling with the color settings?

I know that this is not particularly useful for a Jaws list but I personally found that Jarte has become unusable with Jaws. However it still works perfectly well with NVDA as a workaround.

Hi David,
 
What's the work around for NVDA?  Someone else is having problems with Jaws & NVDA running Windows 10 with J2020.

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Hello. I also ran into the problem where JAWS seemed to no longer support cursor navigation in Jarte. You will be happy to know that there is a very simple fix for this problem which is achieved by toggling the state of enhanced edit support within the JAWS settings center. See my blog post for detailed instructions for those who are not familiar with adjusting options within Settings Center. However, going into Settings Center and toggling Enhanced Edit support will definitely fix the problem.

No workaround needed for NVDA – it just works perfectly with Jarte as far as I can tell from my limited usage.

I just went to type a sample document and all was fine.

What I meant was that using NVDA was the workaround rather than trying to make Jaws work with Jarte properly.

David, thanks for your help, it works now. BTW, got any other tips for using Jarte with JAWS and/(or NVDA)?
