I don't know about an announcement, but you should be able to configure a
system sound for this if one isn't there already.

Try looking in sound themes.

Subject: [jaws-users] low battery warning



Hello:





I have an HP Envy with jaws 14 and windows 7. Before I replaced the battery
when power was down to 15% I would get an announcement. Now that I have a
new battery I get no warning and everything goes off before I realize that I
need the power cord. Can someone please tell me how to get the
announcement back?

Thanks,

I forgot to add  that this feature can also be tobbled on & off by using a Layered Keystroke.  Press, Insert / Jaws Key + Spacebar, lut up and press the letter, D, to toggle Audio Ducking on / off.

Re: Older Version of Skype7.x

Hi.


Sorry, I found an issue with one of my noted bugs.

5. Skype Electron 8.25 if you hit the react button on a message in a conversation, you're stuck. You can't get out of the list of possible reactions in any way except alt+f4 to close Skype, which will drop any ongoing calls you may be in currently.



Incorrect, it's skype uwp14 that does this, skype electron 8.25 you can likely use the virtual cursor to get out of it anyway but I believe you can escape to close that anyway.

To my knowledge, the current up to date skype classic version is 7.41.0.101 but it contains no major feature changes that I am aware of.


Some have said that this skype classic won't be able to log in after September first. If you have the time, please use skype uwp or skype electron also and report issues to microsoft via the feedback hub or via the report a problem feature. If using the feedback hub, you can jump directly to it like this, hit ctrl+comma for preferences, shift+tab till you find help and feedback. Once you hit that there's an option to send feedback. If you're using skype uwp 12 point something, then you might not have that in your preferences. In that case look for a more options button in the main window, help and feedback is located therein, but there's an additional option that says report a problem which takes you out to a webpage with a single edit box to type your problem into. I've been using both ways and reporting issues. I'm trying nto to just grype and whine about how I want to keep using skype classic as I'm farely sure that'll get me nowhere, but I'm trying constructive feedback on issues I'm finding, bugs in skype electron 8.25 and skype uwp preview 14 that need to be fixed before we are forced to be stuck with either option.


In case you want a reference, here are some of my issues.

1. Skype uwp 12 and skype electron 8.25 both continue to adjust your microphone gain even if configured not to. They litterally move the microphone gain slider under the sounds control panel. Skype uwp 14 will fix it there but there's no sign of a fix for 8.25. It's a really nasty one, as when people talk in the background and sometimes it doesn't need to be talking, just some sound for it to pick up on, if the person right at the computer doesn't talk or isn't there, it'll gain up really, really loud and when someone close by does talk they're all distorted and far too loud, many times louder than your screen reader until it kicks back.


2. Skype UWP 14 and Skype electron 8.25 both don't let you use home and end in the messages list or the conversations list.


3. Skype Electron 8.25 jumps you to the end of the messages list in the current conversation if you were focused on one a ways up from the bottom and wanted to comment on it, so you tabbed over and typed something and pressed enter to send, then tabbed your way back to the messages list, focus has been moved to the very bottom. This makes it next to impossible to catch up with a conversation you have fallen behind on while making comments along the way, and this jumping to end is unnecessary in the extreme given there's a jump to end button right there to do the same thing, except...


3. Skype uwp14 and Skype Electron 8.25 the jump to last message buttons don't seem to work, ever.


4. Skype UWP14 and Skype Electron 8.25 autoanswer functionality works while already in a call and rudely drops the call or puts on hold with whom ever you were already in a call with, without so much as a sound to notify you or them of the change. Autoanswer should never, ever, function while already in a call. Skype Classic has this all figured out, there's no excuse for modern Skype to not be able to get this right.


5. Skype Electron 8.25 if you hit the react button on a message in a conversation, you're stuck. You can't get out of the list of possible reactions in any way except alt+f4 to close Skype, which will drop any ongoing calls you may be in currently.


6. Skype Uwp 14 alt+1 for the conversations list doesn't work reliably, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, and I can't get a grasp on just what makes the difference. It should work without fail, in a call, in a chat, in preferences, no matter what, it should just work, and it should put focus directly on the list of conversations and not occasionally just focus the list of tabs instead. This was working well for Skype UWP 12, why does it need to be broken again?


7. Skype UWP 14 notifications aren't reliable. With the computer set to allow apps to run in background, set to allow skype to post notifications, skype uwp14 itself configured to notify you - all of the related boxes are ticked in preferences for it including the continue notifying even while do not disturb is on, you only get notification sounds maybe a fourth of the time, and I can't find a consistency with when I do get them. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's a group conversation or not, or whether I'm in a call or not, or whether Skype UWP 14 has a window currently open or not, it may or may not make a sound when I get a chat, and it pretty much never posts the kind of notification that the screen reader will read automatically even though it's set to high priority. Skype uwp12 always notifies every single message in a group or out, in a call or not and is actually annoying for doing it, no reason Skype uwp14 can't be so good about it too. Skype Electron 8.25 is doing well in this area too currently..




A good thing in all this? Yes, skype UWP14 will fixed the bug with JAWS where it would read the wrong conversation or the wrong message do to sluggishness when arrowing up and down in it.


Some suggestions? Heck yes, add a keystroke to jump focus to the messages list in the current conversation, add another one to jump directly to the type a message here edit box, and, additionally, auto focus the message edit box if you start typing while focus is actually on the messages list.




Re: JAWS with Workday software for HR .

Steve
 

Just curious, did you try using the Jaws OCR layered commands to see if it would expose something you could then do a simulated mouse-click on?
Insert-Space, then O, and then W for example might see something in the relevant window.
 
I'm not personally conversant with WorkDay,  although as a former HR pro, I have heard of it. 
One thing that might complicate things is that it is cloud-based, from what I understand.

I am finding Workday challenging.   One of the challenges I was having yesterday while trying to edit my performance goals is these boxes that should be a combo box, in my opinion.  I think the way sighted users invoke them is to click on a little icon in the right edge of the edit box that opens a little window with the choices in it.  I cannot figure out how to open these with JAWS.  It’s not like I can start typing an option I know exists in the list and having it auto populate.  I am just trying to figure out if I am missing something before I submit feedback.  I work for a company with 18,000 employees, so maybe I can get a more direct feedback route on accessibility issues.

Yes, Unum also utilizes Work Day for their HR administration. Even though Work day claims to be accessible, it is not completely accessible. Even when issues are reported, issue resolution is slow at best.

 

Many functions are clumsy at best and I still have to get assistance from a sighted person for a number of the tasks that are required of me.  We have been using Work Day for a couple of years now.

Re: Editing cells in Excel 2016

Jim Pursley
 

   I've also noticed that JAWS reads the entire contents of a cell as one word if it's a phrase.  I'f I'm entering multiple words in a cell, I can still edit in the usual way provided that I don't hit enter nor leave the cell.

Editing works character by character when there is only one word, however long, in the cell. 

My workaround is to retype the cell contents, as it's usually only one line and not too complicated.

This said, I would like to see VFO return editing to the normal character by character mode in all Excel circumstances.

Yes, I have seen this exact thing that you have described.  It always happens when the formula is long, and intermittent with all other cells.  When it happens, I do the following:

 

  1. F2 to edit the cell
  2. Control home to get to begin of the cell contents.
  3. Shift+Control+End to select all of the cell content.  Note, you can try Control+A instead of steps 2 and 3, but I have found inconsistencies with its use.
  4. Paste the contents into a NotePad file.
  5. Edit the information.
  6. Copy the informtion from the NotePad.
  7. Delete the contents of the cell from within the cell or outside the edit mode.
  8. Make sure you  are inside the blank cell.  Use F2 if necessary.
  9. Paste the contents from the NotePad file into the cell.

 

Lengthy process, but you can get the job done.

 

HTH,

Annette

Hello,

 

Using Win 1803 and latest Jaws 2018 I run into a strange situation when trying to edit cell contents in excel within MS Office 2016

Whether the cell contains text or a formula, some cells can be edited by dressing F2 and then arrowing back and forth making necessary corrections. However, other cells doing the same only reads the entire cell contents when arrowing either way. No pattern or consistency to this behavior. Have others experienced this too? Any work arounds?

 

Best,

Al

Yes, Definitely!

Pinterest is not that accessible.

Tumblr is even worse.

Many of these social media platforms, is for photos, and pinning things, and it is very tough for me to use them with JAWS.

For me,

Facebook and Twitter with a Twitter client is as far as I go LOL!

wondering if other jaws users find pinterest less than blind user friendly.
