Reading Emailwith Jaws 2019

Ernest H Molina
 

Hi,

 

I am running Windows 10 version 1809 using JAWS2019 and Outlook 16.

 

When reading the message in an Email, the subject line always appears at the top of the message body. Can this be prevented using the quick setting?

Steve,

Thanks for the heads up. Just checked and then it updated. Chrome used to
update automatically but over the past few months I have to go to help, then
about, and then it updates. Does yours update automatically?

Best,
Al

Try pressing Insert Control V while in Chrome. This should announce your

Thanks Glen, I did as you suggested pressed alt, F and down arrow to help
and opened about, but poor is me, I still don't know how to tell if Chrome
has updated to the latest release. So sorry that I seem to be so infantile
about all of this. But sometimes it seems that I need someone to hold my
hand to get through what others see so easily.

Hi,
Here's Eric's message about the Chrome update.

All,

In the March update of JAWS, there were changes made to prepare for
the release of Chrome build 74 and higher. If you have Chrome
installed, and go to the about box, you should get that update
installed now. Here is what was posted in the release notes and I
think a great reason to move to Chrome if you have not already.
Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome After
working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce
that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for
release by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard
will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer
for years. The functionality is included for all users of JAWS and
Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of
items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and pasting them into
Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.
Regards,
Eric

*** The next JAWS monthly update should be out by the end of April.

Hello; unfortunately, your not gonna fix the outlook issue with windows updates.

the problem you most likely have is,

a file is missing within the jaws2019 enu folder called configName.ini

I can send yu the file, or perhaps you can contact FS.

How to activate Chrome's new reader mode?

Dennis L
 

Hi, in chrome Canary there is a reader mode you have to enable it first.   After this is done is there a keyboard short cut to enable it?    The article is below

The desktop version of Google Chrome’s browser is getting a reader mode, which can be used to strip out a page’s unnecessary background clutter to make an article easier to read. ZDNet notes that the feature launched today in Chrome’s experimental Canary release, and it should make its way to more stable versions of the browser in the future.

Reader modes have become a standard browser feature. Safari added its reader mode in 2010, and Firefox and Microsoft’s Edge browser have had one since at least 2015. All three allow you to change the color of the background of the page and adjust the font size to whatever is most comfortable to read.

The new reader mode isn’t entirely new for Chrome. It’s existed for a while in the Android version of the app where it’s called “Simplified view,” and it can be turned on from the browser’s accessibility menu. The desktop version’s reader mode is a renamed port of this accessibility option, as noted in a bug report that was spotted back in February.

If you want to enable the new functionality, then you’ll need to use an up-to-date version of Chrome’s experimental Canary release. Head over to “chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode” toggle the feature on, and restart your browser. You can then put a page into reader mode by clicking the settings button on the top right of the browser and selecting “Distill page.”

 

Question On Outlook Message Deletion

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

Occasionally, I will copy myself on an Outlook e-mail message, because the message is very important, and I want to be sure it has been sent.

 

Recently, I have noticed that if I delete the received message copy from my inbox, it is also deleted from my sent file.

 

Is there a way I can configure Outlook so that the message remains in my sent file, even though it has been deleted from my inbox?

 

I’m using the Office 365 version of Outlook 2016 with Windows 10 and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thank you!

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

Hi Dennis,
 
See if this helps:
It is called, just read!
Just press the Alt to open the virticle menu, go to more sub menu, and go to extensions.
You can go to the store on that page, and just type in Just Read, and that extension will come right up.
Just have that install to Chrome, go back to the extensions page, and make sure that is activated in your list of extensions that you have on Chrome!
It does indeed work great with CTRL+Shift+L!
I hope that helps.

Hey Loy,
You can do it a couple ways.
You can route the Jaws to the PC cursor, with insert + Jaws key.
Or you can virtualized the window with alt + caps lock + W.
I think you need to have laptop mode set for this key combination though.

After highlighting / selecting the drive and pressing, Alt + Enter, to bring up the properties. 
1. Route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor with the keystroke, Insert + Jaws cursor key / Numpad minus.
2. Press the, Pageup key / Numpad 9.

What's the difference between the Cnary and regular versions of Chrome?  Why would the Canary version be chosen over the regular version of Chrome?  How does someone get the Canary version?

No mike that doesn’t help.  In chrome Canary Chrome built in their own reader view.

Hi Dennis,

 

See if this helps:

It is called, just read!
Just press the Alt to open the virticle menu, go to more sub menu, and go to extensions.
You can go to the store on that page, and just type in Just Read, and that extension will come right up.
Just have that install to Chrome, go back to the extensions page, and make sure that is activated in your list of extensions that you have on Chrome!
It does indeed work great with CTRL+Shift+L!
I hope that helps.
Please ask again, if that doesn’t work!
David Moore

Hi, in chrome Canary there is a reader mode you have to enable it first.   After this is done is there a keyboard short cut to enable it?    The article is below

The desktop version of Google Chrome’s browser is getting a reader mode, which can be used to strip out a page’s unnecessary background clutter to make an article easier to read. ZDNet notes that the feature launched today in Chrome’s experimental Canary release, and it should make its way to more stable versions of the browser in the future.

Reader modes have become a standard browser feature. Safari added its reader mode in 2010, and Firefox and Microsoft’s Edge browser have had one since at least 2015. All three allow you to change the color of the background of the page and adjust the font size to whatever is most comfortable to read.

The new reader mode isn’t entirely new for Chrome. It’s existed for a while in the Android version of the app where it’s called “Simplified view,” and it can be turned on from the browser’s accessibility menu. The desktop version’s reader mode is a renamed port of this accessibility option, as noted in a bug report that was spotted back in February.

If you want to enable the new functionality, then you’ll need to use an up-to-date version of Chrome’s experimental Canary release. Head over to “chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode” toggle the feature on, and restart your browser. You can then put a page into reader mode by clicking the settings button on the top right of the browser and selecting “Distill page.”
