Notifications and Action Center

Audiobookfan
 

Ok, I'm confused and frustrated. From time to time, I hear JAWS announce a notification, such as when its booting up or when a device is inserted, etc. But I cannot ever find this text anywhere on the screen. Where is JAWS reading this from and how can I review or act upon it?

I was thinking I heard that these notifications could be heard by pressing windows-a, but this brings up something called the Action Center, and I cannot figure out what I can do with this dialog. Tabbing around seems to leave me with the option of clearing these actions, but again, how do I actually learn what these actions want me to do and how I can act upon them?

If there's any documentation on this, please point me in that direction.

Thanks,
Jeff


Re: Speech will not stay muted

Yeah, that’s very strange also.

 

So, I’ve figured out that when I restart jaws, the speech mute works, until I go to Skype and start looking at my message history. From that point on, speech mute is broken. This could have something to do with the scripts for Skype from Doug lee that I installed, or it could be the native JAWS 2018 Skype scripts. Either way, skype or the scripts seem to be turning my speech on. The worst thing about this is that, after this happens, the toggle simply will not work – even going into settings centre and setting the speech to “no speech” doesn’t stick.

There’s something I find really irritating about JAWS that may bee relevant. If you press insert-escape to refresh the screen, it will also turn on sound that has been muted. I’ve asked Eric and JAWS tech support to separate the two commands, but in vain.

HI.

I recently got a Focus 40 braille display and am running it through JAWS 2018. Everything’s working pretty great, for the most part, and I’m very happy. One of the things I like most is being able to turn the speech off and use braille only sometimes. This is particularly great when there are other people around and I don’t want to distract/bother/advertise my actions to them.

As I understand it, jaws key + space, s is the speech toggle, and it can be set to either “speech on demand” or “speech mute”. I was using it with some success until recently. But it doesn’t seem to – stick. Even now, I press insert-space, s, and jaws says “speech mute”, but, well, the speech is  not muted.

Am I missing something? This is, in theory, just what I want, isn’t it?

Just now I unloaded JAWS, reloaded it, and tried again. The speech mute toggle is working again. But this is the second time I’ve had to reload JAWS in the last ten minutes to fix this.

 

Anyone have any pointers?

 

Thanks

You could remap the refresh screen command, and that might not bring back speech.

Re: wlm message list

Marie <magpie.mn@...>
 

Lenny, you currently have it collapsing all threads. To have the threads expanded:
Go to file: options: mail
ctrl plus tab to the Read page.
Tab down until you hear the option: automatically expand all groups. Make sure this check box is checked.
Tab down to the okay button and press enter.
Now the thread are expanded and you can delete one at a  time. If you decide from the subject that you do not want to read any messages in the thread, just press the left arrow, which will collapse the thread  and the delete key will delete the entire thread.
Hope this helps.

Hello,

 

It depends on whether you have a multi-user license for office 13.  If yes, then you simply run the installer on the new laptop.

 

If you have only a single-user license, then no it isnnot possible.

Re: wlm message list

netbat66
 

sounds like you have it set to sort by conversation.
i like it this way because you can at least delete all of the messages in the thread you don't want to read all at once.
but if you right arrow on the first message in the thread you can open all the messages then read and delete each message independently.
in the ribbons you can change it to one line view. then you can change what shows in the message headings and the order they show.

Sounds like part of the problem is that you have them sorted by group, or grouped by conversation.

I finally got Windows 10 upgraded to version 1903 and I'm running the latest version of JAWS 2019.

Perhaps it was like this before I upgraded to 1903 and I just didn't notice, but the folder view for my downloads folder seems messed up.
First, when I enter the folder, JAWS says something about "today expanded" and the files are not listed in alphabetical order. How do I change the view so that I get a detail view with the subfolders listed first in alphabetical order then the files, also in alphabetical order?

Hi Jeff,
 
No, this happened in the 1903 update.  Try the following to put it back the way it used to be.
1. Open your Download folder and press, Control + Spacebar, to make sure you deselect anything in the folder.
2. Open the context menu with the Applications key or Shift + F10.
3. In the, sub-menu View, press enter on List or Details, or whichever option you prefer.
4. Again open the context menu and in the, sub-menu Sort by, press enter on , Name.
5. This is the biggie, again open the context menu and press enter on, sub-menu Group By, and press enter on, None.
You should now be back to the old way of the download folder display.

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