Or maybe putting the code into the public domain for anyone to make it accessible.  They didn’t seem to be willing to do this several years ago but might be willing to do it now.

I asked codeFactory about decTalk several years ago and they said there probably would not be enough demand for it. But that was back in 2013 or so. Maybe if we all contact codeFactory about selling decTalk we could get it accomplished?

How to change the download folder back

Mr. Ed
 

Hi All,

I know this has been posted numerous time and I thought I saved the instructions on how to change the download folder back to the way it was before my pc downloaded Windows 1903. I cannot find those instructions. Can someone please give me those instructions to change the downloaded folder back to the way it was in 1809. Thank you in advance.

Mr. Ed

Re: New Jaws update what's new

Adrian Spratt
 

I remember some of these issues as problems people have posted to this list. I’m glad Vispero takes the trouble to note the ones they’ve fixed, even if there are others that seem to be neglected. Also, the fixes list is never comprehensive. A few updates ago, they fixed an annoying problem I and others were having with Word, but I didn’t read about it in the “What’s New” section. Even beyond these issues, cumulatively, JAWS gets better at handling Chrome, the Internet in general, and other aspects of our computer-based work. I think it’s a very good thing that Vispero keeps us informed and that we have Mike B to make it even easier for those of us on this list to get that information.

Hi all,
Here is what's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the June 2019 update and the August 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page. You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

    • This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are experiencing this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the Default File, type "start" into the search edit box, and then toggle the control called: "Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
    • In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when INSERT+SPACEBAR is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer muted when Speech On Demand is active.
    • Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being found when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
    • When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved an issue where new attendee information was not being reliably indicated in either speech or braille.
    • Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message headers in Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working in Windows 7.
    • Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after exiting a Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top of the email rather than the previous location where you were reading.
    • Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting if an endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though Braille was correctly identifying the information.
    • Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would repeat the last line of the document after completing a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW).
    • Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling while typing" option in setting Center was disabled.
    • In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking incoming message and call notifications multiple times.
    • When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times for each character.
    • Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted Braille was not working as expected.
    • Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio where JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
    • Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where incorrect Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille under c

You see? It is Jaws-related, it is on topic. If we can't celebrate each
others' successes along with the main topic, what is the worth of the list
then? It's made up of people, and while I agree, we should stay on topic,
we shouldn't forget to encourage one another either.

That's why I didn't mention it on this list.
The award is the highest disney can give its

could have remained employed for these 16 years
at Disney and three more at Braille Institute.

Re: Jaws Uppdate

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Pastor Gil,
 
Where do you have punctuation set to, None, and it's not reading correctly? Read the note below.
 
Note:
This is a note on the difference between changing punctuation settings in Jaws quick settings, Insert + V, & customize punctuation in the Settings Center default all applications.  They work backwards from one another.
 
When setting punctuation in Jaws quick settings, this controls the amount of
punctuation JAWS will speak / recognize.  The default setting is most.  To hear less
punctuation spoken you would select some or none.
 
When making changes in the customize punctuation list, this basically tells Jaws how much of a selected punctuation mark to ignore.  If you do not want
Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you want to choose the
" all " selection.  You will have 4 radio buttons to arrow up or down
through.  They are none, some, most, & all.  In these selections they work
backwards than what you would think.  For example;  If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading.  On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.
 
Summary:  In short the Jaws quick settings tells Jaws what punctuation to recognize / speak, & in the Settings Center default all applications / Customize
Punctuation settings, tells Jaws what punctuation to ignore / not speak.  Hence, they work backwards from each other.
 
Hope this helps some of you understand the differences between the 2
punctuation setting options.
 

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

Re: jaws with decTalk access32 and speak-windows?

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

I asked codeFactory about decTalk several years ago and they said there probably would not be enough demand for it. But that was back in 2013 or so. Maybe if we all contact codeFactory about selling decTalk we could get it accomplished?

Hi Gerald.

this is an issue that makes me leery about buying a computer with
an SSD.?? Because an SSD emits no noise like a mechanical hard drive, it
would be almost impossible to tell for sure that your Windows 10 PC has
shut down successfully because there is no shutdown sound like in
Windows 7. Sometimes, you might hear "JAWS for Windows" when the
shutdown has initiated, but there is no reliable way to tell whether it
has powered off unless it has a DVD drive on which you can simply press
the eject button to tell whether it is off.
Your computer is shutting down when speech disappears. You can also
pay attention to the sound of its fan. When the fan stops blowing,
your system has shut down entirely.

Also, I have read that although a solid state drive may be more
reliable as a mechanical hard
drive, it may not last as long because its memory cells tend to wear out
over time and eventually become unusable with repeated write cycles.?? Is
this true?
I've never heard this.. Both my solid state drives have lasted three
years so far.

Hi.


I've had Chrome just disappear a time or two in
the past few months, but nothing directly
related to downloads. If this is only happening
when you download something, I wonder if what
ever Antimalware utility you use outside of
Chrome is causing this when it scans the file as
soon as Chrome unlocks it, or perhaps before
Chrome unlocks it, and that's stirring up
trouble somehow. I wish it wasn't that
intermittent. How are you going to know if what
changes you make is actually a fix? If you do
figure out how to crash it every time, maybe try
it once with external Antimalware disabled
temporarily to see if it still happens?


I'm running normal non development Chrome and I
do have Ad Block Plus installed in it. I also
have Chrome Sounds and a couple of other
extensions enabled. I guess it might be worth
uninstalling or resetting your Chrome and, if
you sync your Chrome with your google account,
not syncing it again until you've tried to reproduce the problem a bit.

Hi,
So far nobody has been able to duplicate this
situation. I'm posting it here to see if anybody has suggestions.
While downloading using Chrome several weeks
ago, the application would finish downloading
and I could do a say line to hear the current
line but nothing else when I moved around.
I had to use task manager to close down Chrome.
It happened with all three screen readers on my
desktop, JAWS, NVDA andn Narrator.
I wrote to Google Disability thinking it was Chrome.
then with the next JAWS Private Beta build the
problem went away only to reappear about ten days ago.
I wasn't sure if it was indeed a screen reader
problem or something in a recent Google update.
this last Thursday with the newest Private
build of JAWS, the problem went away again.
the problem is that JAWS and Google updated
about the same time so I don't know if its
Google, a screen reader conflict or maybe both.
So far Google hasn't been able to come up with
a solution or even duplicate it.
And if JAWS, NVDA or Narrator are involved, where would I go from here?
Would the JAWS logs show FS anything?
Has anybody else experienced this?
I especially see it with BARD and other websites from which I download.
I'm using the latest JAWS private build and
Windows 10 update as well as Chrome Version
76.0.3809.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I just tried an experiment and went into About
for Chrome and got an update this morning.
And with the latest Chrome build which just
updated as I wrote this message, I have another Chrome Crash.
When I go into task manager to get rid of
Chrome, I also see a message which says:
AdBlock has crashed. Click this balloon to reload the extension.
Sometimes its another app or extension that has
crashed so it is not always the same one.
I can use Chrome Canary and have never seen this crash happen.
Any ideas as to what is causing this and how to solve it?
