"application file for JAWS" and "JAWS for Windows FS Synth 32 Comm object"

JM Casey
 

Hi everyone.

Recent queries about volume adjustment got me very curious about something. It’s not a huge problem, but I Would like an answer anyway.

When I go into the volume mixer, I sometimes, but not always, see two entries for jAWS. One says, “application file for JAWS”, which always seems to be there, but the other is not present all of the time (it seems), and says “JAWS for Windows FS Synth 32 Comm object”. If the latter is present, adjusting the volume setting for “Application file for JAWS” does nothing at all, but adjusting volume for “Jaws for Windows fs synth 32 comm object” adjusts speech volume. If fs synth is not there, adjusting “application file for JAWS” adjusts speech volume.

I looked in task manager and I feel like “fs synth32.exe” is always running, but I’m quite sure it doesn’t always have an entry in the volume mixer.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this?

If it makes a difference, and I suspect it might, I am using Eloquence about 85% of the time, and Vocalizer Expressive occasionally.

Hi Vicky,

I use MS2010, and jaws 2018, but I think it will do the same thing.

 

Excel Row and Column Title Reading

 

1, be in the cell roll you want it to be read, like A1

2, Press insert V

3, press the letter T

4, arrow down to title reading

5, arrow down one time to, Define Name Column and Row Titles off

6, press the space bar until you hear current file

7, arrow down two times to title reading detection off

8, press the space bar

A, the first choice is read the column

B, read the row

C, read both

9, after you make your choice then press enter twice

Then it will go back to the work sheet

Hi,
I know this is a really basic question, but I don’t know the answer so I’m asking here.]
When I alt-tab through my list of open windows, I keep having to go through JAWS Home Use. I’ve tried minimizing that window, but that doesn’t work.
Could someone tell me how I can get JAWS Home Use out of my list of open windows when I alt-tab through them?
Thanks much.

I always wished Freedom Scientific would make this option the default, but it's not, but I always find it an annoyance when working on people's computers when they have not set Jaws to run from the system tray.
To fix this, alt + tab to the Jaws window, and do alt O for Options, and enter on basics, and tab to run from system tray, and check it with the space bar.
HTH.

Re: Stuck Jaws aand aBraille Display in Excel

chris_toomer@...
 

Hi again everyone,

 

In regards to my original message below, had my Son check to see if the arrow keys were working when I tried to move from one cell to another and indeed they were. Jaws was not speaking the new cell nor was the Braille display displaying the new cell. If I move to another cell, than alt-tab away from and back into Excel, that new cell will be displayed but am still not able to get Jaws to speak/display another cell if I moved to it in the sheet. Just wanted to give a quick update and any suggestions for solving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks again,

Chris

Hi everyone,

 

Recently, I set up a Windows 10 based laptop and installed Office 365. I’m having an issue with Jaws, my Focus 40 Braille display and Excel that I hope someone can help me with.

 

When I open an excel file, I see the first cell of the sheet I’m working on but if I try to move to another cell i.e to the right, left or up or down, Jaws and the Braille display will neither speak nor will the Braille display move to the cell I want to go to. It’s basically stuck in the same cell. Are there settings I need to change/update in order to get things working properly?

 

I’m new to Windows 10 so, I would also really appreciate any tips to make Jaws and Windows 10 work properly. I prefer to use just Braille, no speech at all.

 

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Lenny,



Open the Speaker folder in the system tray and then open the Volume mixer.
Tab through to find the soundcard and there should be a volume control
for this particular soundcard there. You could also open Playback
devices and change the volume for the soundcard in question there as
well. If you don't have the Speaker icon in the system tray go to the
Control Panel / Sounds link to find the, Playback tab to choose your
soundcard there.

I just installed a new ex sound card to use with ear buds. They now
are a wonderful ear cleaner, it blew the wax right out of my ears. How
can I lower the sound for a specific sound device that I am trying to
use with jaws.
There is nothing on the task bar and I thought that would be only for
the main sound card.

Re: Status update: Outlook calendar issue

Thanks for the reply.

I have reviewed my settings with Microsoft and The Sparrow. They did not make any changes.

Yes, it should work as it does on your computer. It was that way for years before this problem appeared months ago.

As mentioned in my note, The Sparrow told me that others had spoken to them about this issue.

Consider yourself 'lucky'… not as good as winning PowerBall, but still pretty good.

Hello,

 

Thanks for your email. I use my Outlook Calendar for work everyday; it’s set to “day view” and I’m using JAWS. I am, however, not experiencing the issues you’re describing. When I open my calendar today, for example, JAWS tells me I have three appointments and two all day events. When I then press tab and shift+tab each appointment or event is read to me by JAWS. I’ll look at my calendar settings, but I don’t recall changing other items for JAWS to work as well as it does for me.
