Subject: [jaws-users] jaws stops reading article because of an edit field

There's a newsletter called Truthout and toward the end of each article, there's a kind of insert where the reader is told that he or she can receive a daily summary by filling out the following form. There's then a place for one's email address and , if I remember correctly, a sign up button. Before my calamitous move to Jaws 2019, I was able to just arrow through that form quickly and resume reading the rest of the article which continues underneath it. Now, I can't do that any longer. I'm stuck there. I can't go back above it and use insert 2 to just read everything. I can't get to the bottom of the article and arrow up. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Another issue, Jaws is set at intermediate verbosity, where it was before. I often copy articles and post them on the Blind Democracy list. I have a routine way of doing that. I've copied the article into the message. I then go to the top of the message where the title is, copy the title, and shift tab once to the subject line where I paste the title. I can still do that.
However, Jaws is not saying shift tab as it did before. It says nothing when I press those 2 keys in that situation.

Another thing it has stopped doing, it doesn't tell me that I'm in the original message after I've replied to a message. I can find out, but it almost never tells me that automatically.

Perhaps this is all just a punishment for still having a Windows 7 computer?

Hi Miriam,
 
It sounds like your, Forms Mode, is set to turn on automatically when you come to an edit field.  I don't know what setting you prefer, but if you only want the Forms Mode to open when you want it to, let the list know and someone can provide steps.  Or, steps can be provided to transfer your settings from your previous version into this newer Jaws version, if possible depending on which Jaws version you were running previously and if it's still installed.  Transferring your settings would probably be your best option, if possible.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

setting up time and date in mwb

Kimsan
 

Hi,

I am using the latest version I think of mwb, 3.71?

I thought I had it scheduled to run weekly scans.

I’m trying to set a date for it, but it keeps saying invalid time or date.

How do I write the formats?

 

Thankyou,

Sincerely,

Kimsan Song

Re: JAWS not reading Adobe Acrobat Reader DC documents

Sharon S
 

Hi, catching up on old messages here. I also am going to take note of these instructions because I think this is what is happening at work. The other day we received a newsletter in PDF and I opened it and got nothing. I tried OCR and I got the message that it couldn’t start because it wasn’t in acrobat reader. I double checked and it was in acrobat so I couldn’t work out what was going on. In the end I forwarded it to my home email and when I got home I opened it and read it with no issues. After reading these messages I think the problem at work was it was running in protected view but wasn’t telling me this. So on Thursday if I get the chance I will have a look into these settings and see if it is the problem. The only other difference between the two computers is that I am running Jaws 2018 and work is running Jaws 2019. I am able to upgrade to 2019 but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

 

Thanks all.

From Shaz.

Adobe did something that Broke JAWS, as Vispero tech support said, but it’s easily fixed.

Open Adobe, either from the icon on your desktop, or from the start menu.

Press control-k.

Press s till you hear

Security enhanced.

There is a checkbox that says,

Enable protected mode at startup.  It’s checked.  Press the spacebar to uncheck it.

If you get a warning message, that’s okay.  You need to change this to make it work.

Tab to OK.

Tab to OK again.

Now it works as it should.

Subject: [jaws-users] JAWS not reading Adobe Acrobat Reader DC documents

 

Hi,

I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on my new windows-10 computer using the latest version of JAWS. My memory is that, when we tested Adobe a couple of months ago I was able to open and read a .pdf document.

Now, when I open a .pdf document using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the keyboard seems to be disabled and JAWS does not read the document. I’m unable to arrow around the screen using my keyboard. Interestingly, my friend, who helped me set up the computer, is able to maneuver around the screen using Quick Assist (he’s remoted into my computer) and is able to see documents on the screen.

This behavior is not document specific and is making it impossible for me to read important (to me) .pdf documents.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

John

 

Ps If there is an alternative  program to Adobe that will let me successfully read and convert pdf documents to Word, I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks.

Re: jaws stops reading article because of an edit field

I had it set to turn the forms mode on automatically before, but this never happened before. Also, the person who was supposed to be helping me and who had to leave, told me it was best to remove the previous version because with Jaws 2019, I didn’t need the previous versions. I wasn’t comfortable with that, but I assumed, at that point, that he knew more than I did.

Yo Bro,
 
It's kind of tough to set the date and times with Jaws, but while you're in the date field press the, End key, to take you to the end of the line and use your backspace key 8 or 10 times to delete everything first.  Know what day of the week you want to scan so you can enter the correct date if you are going to scan on a weekly schedule and below is the format you use.  Read character by character to make sure you get it correct.
6/9/2019
 
The time format is below and read character by character to get it correct.  It goes hour, minute and seconds.  You can use single digits for hours, but you must use double digits for minutes and seconds.
5:00:00 PM   or    11:30:30 AM
 
If you would like we can Tandem later today and I can get my wife to view useing the Tandem video feature.  Also, that 4 letter screen reader works better doing this time & date thing.

Miriam, again, try pressing the PC cursor key twice quickly when this happens. I figured you had forms mode set to automatic. You shouldn’t have to change that setting if this is the only problem you’re experiencing with it.

For the record, I find having forms mode set to manual makes navigation easier, but each of us has our own experience to guide us. You’ll find the options in JAWS quick settings, JAWS key+v, while you’re in your browser’s window.

Re: jaws stops reading article because of an edit field

Miriam Vieni
 

Yes, that worked beautifully.

 

And yes, I’m beginning to think that I’d like to be able to go into forms mode when I choose, rather than automatically. But if I’m going to change, I need step by step directions like Rebecca gives me because

  1. I’m old and my mind isn’t as agile as it was and
  2. . Even when I was younger, I wasn’t good at this stuff.

When I had some vision, I’d print up emails with direction and read them step by step under my CCTV. Now, I read the emails, writing each step out in braille, and then I follow the directions, one step at a time.

 

I suppose because of the typical short term memory loss that happens when one ages, I can’t keep the steps in my mind.

There's a newsletter called Truthout and toward the end of each article, there's a kind of insert where the reader is told that he or she can receive a daily summary by filling out the following form. There's then a place for one's email address and , if I remember correctly, a sign up button. Before my calamitous move to Jaws 2019, I was able to just arrow through that form quickly and resume reading the rest of the article which continues underneath it. Now, I can't do that any longer. I'm stuck there. I can't go back above it and use insert 2 to just read everything. I can't get to the bottom of the article and arrow up. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Another issue, Jaws is set at intermediate verbosity, where it was before. I often copy articles and post them on the Blind Democracy list. I have a routine way of doing that. I've copied the article into the message. I then go to the top of the message where the title is, copy the title, and shift tab once to the subject line where I paste the title. I can still do that.
However, Jaws is not saying shift tab as it did before. It says nothing when I press those 2 keys in that situation.

Another thing it has stopped doing, it doesn't tell me that I'm in the original message after I've replied to a message. I can find out, but it almost never tells me that automatically.

Perhaps this is all just a punishment for still having a Windows 7 computer?

Miriam, again, try pressing the PC cursor key twice quickly when this happens. I figured you had forms mode set to automatic. You shouldn’t have to change that setting if this is the only problem you’re experiencing with it.

For the record, I find having forms mode set to manual makes navigation easier, but each of us has our own experience to guide us. You’ll find the options in JAWS quick settings, JAWS key+v, while you’re in your browser’s window.

I had it set to turn the forms mode on automatically before, but this never happened before. Also, the person who was supposed to be helping me and who had to leave, told me it was best to remove the previous version because with Jaws 2019, I didn’t need the previous versions. I wasn’t comfortable with that, but I assumed, at that point, that he knew more than I did.

Hi Miriam,

 

It sounds like your, Forms Mode, is set to turn on automatically when you come to an edit field.  I don't know what setting you prefer, but if you only want the Forms Mode to open when you want it to, let the list know and someone can provide steps.  Or, steps can be provided to transfer your settings from your previous version into this newer Jaws version, if possible depending on which Jaws version you were running previously and if it's still installed.  Transferring your settings would probably be your best option, if possible.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: Major problem with spellcheck and Outlook and word

I find a misspelled word and hit tab to go to a list of possible replacements and arrow down through the list to find the correct one then tab to change or change all and press return to accept the change. .

When I press the insert-numpad 8 I hear “read original sentence” and it reads the original sentence.

 

I can arrow to the dictionary choices. This is very tedious and not expected behavior. This is a clugey work-around at best.

Can you get the misspelled word verbalized by pressing JAWS key+numpad 8?

As for the alternatives list, try tabbing once to land in it and then going through the list with the down arrow.

This works for me in Outlook 2016. Word can function a little differently.

Which version of Office do you have?

Hi. I had this problem on my previous computer, but not 100% of the time. Now it’s 100%  (or maybe 99.999%) reproducible.

I go into Outlook or Word and generate an e-mail or document. I spellcheck – either by pressing F7 or by sending and having Outlook auto-spellcheck. The first error and suggested correction works fine. When I press a key combo (change, ignore, add, etc) the programs go to the next error, but JAWS does not  read them. It stops and says nothing. If I right-arrow I can hear the error letter by letter, but not the change suggestions.

I’m using latest JAWS, Windows-10 and Office 2019. This is a major issue and seems to clearly be a JAWS interaction issue.

How can I fix this?

Thanks

John Riehl
