Re: File counting with JAWS

JM Casey
 

I don’t know why jAWS doesn’t always give a correct count of items in a list view, but, still, hitting alt-enter on a folder does seem like a better compromise than loading and then unloading narrator to get what you want.

Just my opinion, of course. J…then again, I use this properties keystroke all the time for various purposes, so it’s second-nature to me by now.

Just to clarify.  You can get the correct file count by turning off JAWS, turning on Narrator (control-windows key-enter in Windows 10) and reading the screen with Narrator.  But for whatever reason, the sheer act of turning on Narrator and turning it off again will often be enough to sort JAWS out, and it will then give  the correct file or folder count, which holds till I turn the computer off. 

But sometimes, when I boot the computer, JAWS gives the correct count without going through the above bother, so I usually check each time and fix it if I need to. So it’s a bug that needs  to be fixed.

Chris,

 

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.

Hello All,

 

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.

It doesn’t matter what your view is, JAWS should always show the correct count.

I agree using the view is quicker. There is a way to keep the list view set to ‘list’ by setting the view to list—(using the steps David gave’ on the C drive), then go into the control panel, press ‘f’ for file explorer, setting in the general tab to ‘this pc’ then using the ctrl+tab to the view page and selecting ‘apply this view to all folders’ then the view list seems to always stays set to list which gives me the true file count.

Experimenting With fixing the audio card stopping

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
Michael and I have experienced issues with our sound card quitting, as I described it, it sounds like a slow echoee robot and quits working and I have to reboot.
I brought up the jaws menu, I usually enter on the jaws icon on the desktop to bring it up, and I arrowed down to Utilities, right arrowed, and down arrowed to sound card.
Mine had windows default checked.
I tried the realtech one, I had three to choose from, and when I did I had no speech.
So I called up NVDA, Narrator would have worked too, and I repeated the above steps, and I entered on the third one, which was speakers and that one worked.
Hopefully that will stay after my next reboot, and I'll see if this fixes my sound drop out problem.
But don't try this unless you have a way to call up speech from another screenreader if you loose Jaws audio.

And other thing is have you taken a look under your reliability history.

I would be interested in if you see under view all problems if you see a lot of host windows process has stopped working or not responding and had to close errors.

I get a lot of them at the same time i get the bad sound issue.

Hi Tom i am not sure if your sound issue is same as mine.

I have had an issue off and on for about 2 years now on only 2 of my
cheaper Laptops.

My issue is out of the blue jaws will be talking fine then all of a
sudden jaws witll get really reverby and little un responsive.

And i need to do a restart of my computer and the sound is all back to
normal.

But my issue can happen 3 times in half hour.

Or it may not stuff up for days.

2 years ago i did a total reinstalled windows 10 on 1 machine and it
fixed it for ages.

Then few months back it started up again.

Each time this happens i have found under my reliability history in win
10 tells me their was a error saying windows host process has stopped
working or not responding and had to close.

I have had stacks of thoes errors come up.

Most reports have been reported to Microsoft but no fixes.

And i have reinstalled the realteck audio drivers lots of times by
uninstalling drivers under devices.

So i am frustrated as well.

I have 3 dearer laptops with Realteck sound cards and never had a
problem with them.

I feel its something to do with the drivers.

Cheers Michael.

Hello, everyone.

You may recall that last week, I had a Jaws distorted speech problem
with my Dell Windows 10 computer.

The problem was fixed by uninstalling the Windows generic sound card
driver and replacing it with a realtech driver thanks to an executable
file from Mike Mote.

Unfortunately, my problem has returned, but in a different form.

My jaws speech is slightly distorted in the laptop speakers, and when
I use headphones, I get stereo sound with a slight reverberation,
rather than Jaws being in the center of the headphones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for solving this latest issue?

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019.

Thanks as always.

But sometimes, when I boot the computer, JAWS gives the correct count without going through the above bother, so I usually check each time and fix it if I need to. So it’s a bug that needs  to be fixed.

Chris,

 

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.

Hello All,

 

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.

 

Regards

 

Chris

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,

3, l=list,

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.

Re: outlook 16 question

Hello;

well, first of all, you need to establish, why your shift+tabbing in a message, what information are you looking for.

as you've found out, things have changed in the office outlook.

you will not be able to remove, or rid of any of the verbiage your hearing.

so, you'll need to find another way to seek the information your tabbing for.

Re: Jaws Distorted Speech Problem Has Returned

Hi Glen i was wondering with your sound issue.

Do you have to restart computer and the sound is good till next time.

And other thing is have you taken a look under your reliability history.

I would be interested in if you see under view all problems if you see a lot of host windows process has stopped working or not responding and had to close errors.

I get a lot of them at the same time i get the bad sound issue.

cheers Michael.

Memory should not be the problem for most things.
I have a laptop with only two gig of RAM and it runs well.
I think that the more programs we install, whether they are running or not, slow down a computer.
As soon as I get all my data backed up, I plan on reinstalling Windows 7 on this computer.
Although that may not be the cause of this issue, it may exacerbate the problem.

Your system is a little lite on memory, but I wouldn’t say for sure that is the reason for the problem. I had this issue a long time ago and if memory serves it had something to do with sound card drivers.

When this problem occurs, how many programs or windows do you have open?
Also, how much ram is installed on your system?

Hi Tom i am not sure if your sound issue is same as mine.

I have had an issue off and on for about 2 years now on only 2 of my
cheaper Laptops.

My issue is out of the blue jaws will be talking fine then all of a
sudden jaws witll get really reverby and little un responsive.

And i need to do a restart of my computer and the sound is all back to
normal.

But my issue can happen 3 times in half hour.

Or it may not stuff up for days.

2 years ago i did a total reinstalled windows 10 on 1 machine and it
fixed it for ages.

Then few months back it started up again.

Each time this happens i have found under my reliability history in win
10 tells me their was a error saying windows host process has stopped
working or not responding and had to close.

I have had stacks of thoes errors come up.

Most reports have been reported to Microsoft but no fixes.

And i have reinstalled the realteck audio drivers lots of times by
uninstalling drivers under devices.

So i am frustrated as well.

I have 3 dearer laptops with Realteck sound cards and never had a
problem with them.

I feel its something to do with the drivers.

Cheers Michael.

Hello, everyone.

You may recall that last week, I had a Jaws distorted speech problem
with my Dell Windows 10 computer.

The problem was fixed by uninstalling the Windows generic sound card
driver and replacing it with a realtech driver thanks to an executable
file from Mike Mote.

Unfortunately, my problem has returned, but in a different form.

My jaws speech is slightly distorted in the laptop speakers, and when
I use headphones, I get stereo sound with a slight reverberation,
rather than Jaws being in the center of the headphones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for solving this latest issue?

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019.

Thanks as always.

Re: Audacity, Latest Version Now Works With JAWS

David Bailes
 

Hi Glenn,
If you're wanting to record the audio that is being sent to your speakers of headphones, for example from a web page, then one way to do this in Audacity is to use the following settings:
1. Open the preferences dialog, select the Devices category.
2. Set the Interface host to Windows WASAPI.
3. Playback device will probably be set to your speakers, and won't need to be changed.
4. Set the recording device to your speakers - the word loopback in parenthesis will be appended to the name of this option.
5. Set Recording channels to 2 (stereo).
6. Press the OK button of the preferences dialog.

You should now be able to make a recording of the audio sent to your speakers.
Any problems, just post back,
David.

Hi,
I decided to give this a try, since I am having trouble with recording in GoldWave.
But with this program, when I try to record, it gives me an error, something about no device.
I looked in preferences and although I could tweak a few things there, nothing in the recording except one about software input, and I tried checking that, but it didn't help.

The latest version of Audacity, an open source multi-track audio editor, now works well with the Narrator screen reader. As with previous versions, Audacity also works well with Jaws and NVDA.
Here's a link to Audacity's web site:
https://www.audacityteam.org/
A direct link to the installer of Audacity 2.3.2 is:
https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity.html?dwl=audacity-win-2.3.2.exe

For previous versions of Audacity, I've written guides to Audacity which were written specifically for Jaws users. However my guide for Audacity 2.3.2 is written for users of all of the three screen readers, Jaws, NVDA, and Narrator, and is available here:
http://vip.chowo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/jaws/Audacity-2.3.2-Guide.html

The introduction of the guide gives details of how to subscribe to the Audacity4Blind mailing list.

Re: converting MP3

It does at the end when you close the program.  Just ignore it and hit alt-f4 again!
 
It does a great job, lets you easily choose the format you want to save the audio portion in, and you can choose different bit-rates in the MP3 secion.
