Re: File counting with JAWS
Hi there, tom. The other comments in this thread are interesting. I’d just add that the nice thing about Narrator in Win10 is that it goes on and off instantly, so there’s no delay. You don’t even need to turn off JAWS, unless the two voices are too distracting. I was pleased when Rebecca originally posted her suggestion.

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.
