Latest Jaws update

Larry Volk
 

I wrote earlier that the latest JAWS2019 update has caused me a lot of problems and trying the JAWS repair didn’t resolve them. But I just tried deleting the default.jcf (default configuration file), rebooted the computer—which brought up the startup manager, reset my settings and now everything is working correctly. I’m not sure why but somehow with that update the default configuration file got corrupted.

The alt+# is working for me in Outlook2010. You can also use the shift+tab to move backwards to these fields.

In outlook and Live mail, it either reads or places you in the fields, and it's actually 1 through 6, 6 being the subject field.

Pressing the number twice actually places you in that field.

What is a lt 1 and 2 supposed to do in jaws? In Word 10, alt 1 is supposed to set the line spacing to one line. But doesn’t work. Should I use a bypass key? In WE, bypass is alt B. What is it in Jjujaws”?

I haven't been able to hear the usual information in Outlook emails when
using alt and numbers, but I thought I read that this latest update to Jaws
2019 was fixing that. But for me, it doesn't seem to have done that. Anyone
else?

Have you tried exporting your old settings file from your older Jaws, and importing it into the new one?

I think you are mistaken. In order to set a document to single line spacing, it is control 1, not alt 1 and, likewise, to set a document to double lined spacing it is control 2.

I've got Office 365, did the Jaws update, and it isn't working. Is it
because I have a Windows 7 computer?

Outlook 7 might be the problem. I'm sure it works with outlook 2016 and 365.
I don't know how well it works with earlier versions.

When I open an excel file JAWS is focused on one cell and you can't go to another cell with arrow keys to read the cell.

Good News Regarding Latest Jaws Update

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

I just installed the latest Jaws 2019 update, and wanted to report that the Alt 1 through Alt 6 commands now work again in terms of giving me message fields in Outlook 2016.

 

I also have no problem navigating cells in Excel spreadsheets, contrary to what was earlier reported by at least one list member.

 

Will report on anything else noteworthy as I use the update more.

 

Am using Office 365 on this Windows 10 computer.

I run office 365 all updated programs, and latest jaws update, and windows 1903 latest 64 bit pro. Version, and have no issues at all using the arrows to move and read cells.

 

I use excel every day

You have to have an open message in order to see the options.  Does not work when simply pointing to the message.

Possible Bug In File Explorer In New Jaws Update

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

As you know, I just updated to the latest build of Jaws 2019 on this Windows 10 PC.

 

Most things seem to be working well, and I’m very glad to have the Alt 1 through 6 commands available for reading Outlook 2016 message fields.

 

However, I might have discovered a bug in File Explorer with the new Jaws update.

 

When in a folder list view, I used to be able to create a new folder using the alt control N command.  I found this to be quite handy and efficient.

 

While I can still create a new folder by finding the option in the file explorer menus, it seems like the alt control N command is no longer working.

 

Can anyone else check for this bug, and let us know if it is being experienced on other Windows 10 computers with the latest Jaws update.

 

Thanks!

 

Tom Behler

 

Re: Possible Bug In File Explorer In New Jaws Update

Victor Gouveia
 

Not sure about control and alt, but the command to create a new folder is control+shift+N.
 
Hope this helps.

Strange Event With Open Book

cheez
 

I hope this is okay for this list.
Running Win 10, with latest version of JAWS and Open Book 9.
After scanning and reading a page, the field changes, as if I did an alt+tab.  So in order for me to get back to that scanned page, then I have to alt+tab for sure.
Does anyone have an idea on how to remedy this strangeness?
Now, I'm wondering if the new Canon LiDE 300 scanner I just installed has anything to do with this problem.

Re: Strange Event With Open Book

Richard Turner
 


If you installed the software that came with your Cannon, then that could be the issue.
but select the Twain driver in Openbook scanner settings, and see if that makes a difference.
