hotkey for reloading Jaws

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
It was mentioned on this list recently, but I can't find my saved message.
What is the hotkey for unloading and reloading Jaws?
Thanks.

Re: hotkey for reloading Jaws

Hi Glenn,
 
The keystroke for reporting Jaws crashing or other problems to Freedom Scientific is, insert, windows, + f4 keys
 
If you just want to shut Jaws down that keystroke is, Insert + F4.  Reloading Jaws the default keystroke used to be, Control, Alt + J.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
No one has more to say than the woman who says she doesn't want to talk about it.

I would expect issues with outlook 2007. It is no longer support by
Microsoft I don't think.

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.

I haven't been able to hear the usual information in Outlook emails

update to Jaws
2019 was fixing that. But for me, it doesn't seem to have done that.

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!

Jaws Not Reading Outlook Express Messages

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
A friend of mine is using Windows 7 and Outlook Express, the paid program, and the latest Jaws.
He thinks it is when he has WinAmp open, but I'm not sure that it is related to WinAmp.
But he opens a message and cannot read it.
If if he switches to an older version of Jaws, like Jaws 2018, he can read messages for a while, and he has the same problem.
If he switches back to 2019, he can read it.
If he unloads jaws and reloads it, he can read messages.
He did a jaws repair and that did not help.
He reinstalled Jaws and that did not help.
I'm wondering about his display settings, but Windows says that the 1280 by 1024 is the recommended settings.
So I'm not sure what might work.
Any ideas?
Thanks.
Glenn

Re: Outlook action and accessibility

It would help if you were specific about what you are finding difficult.
For me, Outlook is accessible with very little adjustment.
Most of my adjustments are personal preference, it has been accessible with Jaws, and before that Window-Eyes, for a long time.
Folks on this list will help, but we need you to be specific about what your issues are.
Also, depending where you live, you may also be able to call Microsoft Accessibility to get help.

Tutorial of word with the use of jaws      Hi all,

I remember that, about a month or two ago, someone posted an address which included a file which was a tutorial of using jaws with word. I had a feeling I saved that on dropbox so as I could get it on other computers, however this was not to find, and maybe, it was only a url which I marked while at Ioannina. It was very disappointing when I tried to look it up from here in Athens and could not detect a saved file, nor did I come up with the relevant post on the archive, so, would be grateful if anybody that has and remembers that posting, would kindly send it to me. I remember it was an audio file, or web content.

                Thanks for any help,
