Why not just check the status line like I suggested?
Your file count should be there, reported accurately by windows, not JAWS, which – ok, I don’t know how it gets the information re. list views, but again I would suggest that it might have trouble seeing more than what’s already being displayed at times. I’d only be theorising though. However it is a fact that jAWS does not always accurately report the number of items. We should just do what sighted people do though, in this case.

Thanks for confirming this Jaws flaw regarding accurate file counting.
I have noticed it especially with Windows 10 and Jaws 2019.
I’ll try the Narrator option.
You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.
I am sorry, to ask for help with file counting with JAWS, as I have asked before, and cannot find the response I got before.
This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?
I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.
