Re: File counting with JAWS

I can’t seem to get this process to work, though, when in a sub-folder view within one of my major folders.
Just to be sure, do I invoke the Alt V followed by L and the enter sequence once the sub-folder has been opened?

Hi, the only way I've found to get an accurate file count is,
1, navigate to documents press enter,
you will hear not selected and then an untrue number,
2, press, alt+v=view,
now press enter or the spacebar.
it, will stay true as long as the window stays open.
for some unknown reason the list feature doesn't stay checked.
The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power of a dream.
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.
