Yes I believe those are JAWS navigational keystrokes for using the Outlook Calendar. The tips I gave are inherent to Outlook Calendar and not dependent on JAWS.

Dave, Thanks for this.  It’s hard to remember all the commands unless we use them all the time.  Smile.  

These are several I use.

Alt-down arrow will take you forward a week and alt-up arrow will take you back a week.

Alt-page down will take you forward a month, and alt-page up will take you back a month.

I found the following lurking on my computer, in case anyone finds it helpful.

You are focused within the Outlook Calendar.

You can select one of the four views with the following keystrokes:

Alt+Control+1 moves to the Day View.

Alt+Control+2 moves to the Work Week View, usually Monday through Friday.

Alt+Control+3 moves to the Week View, usually Sunday through Saturday.

Alt+Control+4 moves to the Month View.

 

While in the Day, Work Week, or Week views,use the following keystrokes:

LeftArrow and RightArrow move to the previous and next days.

Press Home to move to the time slot at the start of the work day, and End to

move to the time slot at the end of the work day.

When using UpArrow to move to the previous time slot, and DownArrow to move to the next time slot within the current day,

JAWS will announce all appointments associated with that time slot.

JAWSKey+UpArrow will repeat the appointment at the current time slot.

Control+JAWSKey+D announces the currently focused date and view, and pressing the key twice quickly announces the current date range, when in Week or Work

Week views.

 

While in the Month View, use LeftArrow and RightArrow to move between days, UpArrow and DownArrow to move through weeks.

In all views:

 

JAWSKey+A announces a summary of appointments and events within the current date or date range; pressing that key twice quickly places all the data for

the current range into the virtual viewer.

 

When you move to a new date or date range, JAWS will announce if appointments exist within that range.  If in Day view, the appointment count will be announced

for that day; if in Week or Month views, the appointment count will be for the current view's entire range.

If you type characters here, you will change focus to an edit box where you can make a note at the current time slot.

 

To hear the next appointment on the current day, press Tab.  Press this key again to hear subsequent appointments.

To hear the prior appointment on the current day, press Shift+Tab.

To exit an appointment field, either continue pressing one of these keys

or press UpArrow or DownArrow, and the current calendar view will return.

These appointments are read-only edit boxes in which you cannot use standard editing and movement keys to navigate the text.

Pressing Enter OR NumPadEnter while within one of these fields will take you to the Notes field of the current appointment.

 

Pressing JAWSKey+Tab repeats the current appointment; pressing the key twice quickly places the appointment's data into the virtual viewer.

 

In the new appointment dialog, save  the appointment by pressing Control+S.

to both save and close the appointment, press Alt+S.

This may be old news for some, but I thought it was interesting enough to share.

I wanted to find the date 90 days forward of a day in the past. I dropped off a musical instrument for consignment sale and after 90 days, I could pick it up again if it hadn't sold.

I dropped it off on July 7 this year, and wanted to quickly determine a date 90 days ahead of that. In the Outlook calendar, I pressed Ctrl+G to open the go to date field and typed:

7/7/18 + (90 days)

and pressed Enter. Dropped right on October 5, 2018. Seems like a very useful feature of the Outlook Calendar.

I also know that entering the word today will put you at the current date, and entering 1 year will jump ahead to the date next year. typing 2 years past will drop you back two years. also using the words week, month, ago, back are useful.

Hi Adrian,

 

Thank you very much for summarizing the thread and putting it all in a nutshell, so to speak.  Also, thank you for the explanation of certain application dictionaries being created by FS / VFO, I never realized this happens.  Now a favor if you don't mind?!  I accidentally deleted the steps I posted for creating a default dictionary shortcut, if you or anyone else has them would you please repost them?  Thanks again.

Mike,

 

It never occurred to me that the JAWS dictionary could create so many complications. Actually, I believe Jeff is right. I can say this because with my new computer, I’m having to work through every application all over again. I’m certain I never created an JAWS dictionary for IE, but I’ve just checked and it’s there. It seems VFO/FS has incorporated application-specific JAWS dictionaries for some applications, but not all.

 

That said, here’s a suggested summary of what this thread has revealed:

 

  1. Thanks to you, Mike, we have a method for putting a JAWS default dictionary setting on the desktop. The alternative is the standard control-shift-d once the JAWS dictionary is invoked with JAWS key-d.

 

  1. In some cases, when the JAWS dictionary is invoked, the user will be asked if they want a dictionary created for that application. If the suggestion is accepted, the dialog won’t appear again. If rejected, the user will need to go through the dialog each time the JAWS dictionary is opened in that application and select “cancel.”

 

  1. Once an application-specific JAWS dictionary is created or if one was a VFO/FS factory setting, the user can add new entries for it or go immediately to the default dictionary with shift-control-d. Or they can skip this step altogether by clicking on the desktop shortcut they created by following your directions.

 

I don’t know why VFO/FS made allowances for application-specific JAWS dictionaries, and no one has posted any ideas. All it seems to have done so far is contribute to a very long thread.

Hi Jeff,

 

When you press, Insert + D, in a specific application you're being asked if you want to create a dictionary for that application.  Tab to, Cancel, and press the spacebar and that application dictionary won't be created and you'll be taken to the default Jaws dictionary.  Have you read all the posts' on this thread?  All this has been explained a couple of times.  If you have an IE dictionary that's because you've allowed it to be created, not because it was created without asking you or on its own.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Ok, I've seen 2 different behaviors with respect to opening a dictionary
file with insert-d.

If I press insert-d while I'm here in Thunderbird, a dialog opens asking
for the dictionary name with Thunderbird.jdf as the suggested default. I
can press escape on that dialog and it closes with the Dictionary
Manager open to the default.jdf file.

However, if I press insert-d while in an Internet Explorer window, the
Dictionary Manager opens with the Internet Explorer.jdf file already
open. The thing is, I never created an Internet Explorer dictionary,
unless I did it accidentally or JAWS created it when I pressed insert-d.

This is confusing because it makes it seem like a dictionary file is
automatically created at the time insert-d is pressed. Most of the
pronunciations I want to define occur when I'm in Internet Explorer, but
I want them to be defined globally, not just in IE. I suppose I
accidentally created the Internet Explorer.jdf file somehow, but the
alternative of having to cancel the dictionary creation dialog seems
just as annoying. So, maybe I'll just leave this IE dictionary. I assume
it's not doing any harm.

When a JAWS dictionary hasn't already been created for a specific application, you will be asked if you want to create it. The name of the application in question is suggested. I can't get around this dialog by pressing control-shift-d. Instead, I have to tab over to "cancel." Then JAWS verbalizes "Add." When I press JAWS key+t, I'm told I'm now in the default dictionary.

I also know that entering the word today will put you at the current date, and entering 1 year will jump ahead to the date next year. typing 2 years past will drop you back two years. also using the words week, month, ago, back are useful.

Hi All,
 
For those that might have missed it the 1st time.

To my knowledge there is  not a keystroke that will take you directly to the default dictionary  manager.  But, you can put a shortcut to the default dictionary
manager on  your desktop, for example, and then assign a keystroke to it.  Below is one  way of doing this.
1. Navigate to the ENU  folder of the version of Jaws you're running.  Note:  If you have more  than 1 version of Jaws installed, I believe they will all
use the same default  dictionary, at least on my computer they do.
Here's the file path to  my Jaws 2018 folder where the ENU folder resides.
 
C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\Freedom  Scientific\JAWS\2018
 
The quickest way to get  to your ENU folder if you don't know the file path is the  following:
A. Hold tdown the,  Windows key, and tap the letter, R, to open the Run dialogue.
B. Type a single period,  as you would put at the end of a sentence, and press enter.  This will put  you in your name folder on the C drive.
C. Press enter on the,  App Data, folder.  If this folder is not showing you will need to unhide  your folders.
D. Navigate to the,  Roaming, folder and press enter.
E. Find the Freedom  Scientific folder and press enter, find JAWS , press enter, select your Jaws  version, press enter, spacebar Settings press enter,
select the, ENU, folder and  press enter.
F. Find the, DEFAULT.JDF,  file, and with this file highlighted / selected open your context menu with the  application key or shift + F10.
2. Arrow down to the,  SendTo,sub-menu, press enter, and arrow down to, desktop create shortcut, and  press enter.  You now have a shortcut for the Default
dictionary  file on your desktop.
If you need help on how  to edit this shortcut or how to assign a shortcut keystroke just let the list  know and help will be there in short order.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Mike,
 
Unless I missed something, using that desktop shortcut will launch the default.JDF in Notepad, which is not a user-friendly method of editing. Was that the intent of the shortcut?

Re: How to go straight to my default dictionary to add custom pronunciation words

 

Hi Mike,

 

Well, I actually do read all the replies that answer a question I originally posted. But since I've been using JAWS less than a week and this thread has generated 28 posts so far, I believe you might cut me some slack before assuming I'm not reading the replies. I really didn't want to place a link to my default JAWS dictionary on my desktop and really didn't think that answered the spirit of my original post that the process with dictionaries seems a bit quirky. I've never been asked by JAWS when pressing Insert + D if I want to create a dictionary. But to show I don't have any hard feelings, I'm pasting your reply which was posted at 8:09am on 8/13/18 containing your instructions on how to add the default dictionary to your desktop following my signature in this message.

 

I want to thank everyone who replied to this thread and I've learned a lot about JAWS and its dictionaries and I'm successfully adding words with my custom pronunciations to some dictionary that works so I'm happy.

Hi Alan,

 

To my knowledge there is not a keystroke that will take you directly to the default dictionary manager.  But, you can put a shortcut to the default dictionary manager on your desktop, for example, and then assign a keystroke to it.  Below is one way of doing this.

1. Navigate to the ENU folder of the version of Jaws you're running.  Note:  If you have more than 1 version of Jaws installed, I believe they will all use the same default dictionary, at least on my computer they do.

Here's the file path to my Jaws 2018 folder where the ENU folder resides.

 

C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2018

 

The quickest way to get to your ENU folder if you don't know the file path is the following:

A. Hold tdown the, Windows key, and tap the letter, R, to open the Run dialogue.

B. Type a single period, as you would put at the end of a sentence, and press enter.  This will put you in your name folder on the C drive.

C. Press enter on the, App Data, folder.  If this folder is not showing you will need to unhide your folders.

D. Navigate to the, Roaming, folder and press enter.

E. Find the Freedom Scientific folder and press enter, find JAWS , press enter, select your Jaws version, press enter, spacebar Settings press enter, select the, ENU, folder and press enter.

F. Find the, DEFAULT.JDF, file, and with this file highlighted / selected open your context menu with the application key or shift + F10.

2. Arrow down to the, SendTo,sub-menu, press enter, and arrow down to, desktop create shortcut, and press enter.  You now have a shortcut for the Default dictionary file on your desktop.

If you need help on how to edit this shortcut or how to assign a shortcut keystroke just let the list know and help will be there in short order.

Take care, Mike.

Hi Adrian,

 

Thank you very much for summarizing the thread and putting it all in a nutshell, so to speak.  Also, thank you for the explanation of certain application dictionaries being created by FS / VFO, I never realized this happens.  Now a favor if you don't mind?!  I accidentally deleted the steps I posted for creating a default dictionary shortcut, if you or anyone else has them would you please repost them?  Thanks again.

Mike,

 

It never occurred to me that the JAWS dictionary could create so many complications. Actually, I believe Jeff is right. I can say this because with my new computer, I’m having to work through every application all over again. I’m certain I never created an JAWS dictionary for IE, but I’ve just checked and it’s there. It seems VFO/FS has incorporated application-specific JAWS dictionaries for some applications, but not all.

 

That said, here’s a suggested summary of what this thread has revealed:

 

  1. Thanks to you, Mike, we have a method for putting a JAWS default dictionary setting on the desktop. The alternative is the standard control-shift-d once the JAWS dictionary is invoked with JAWS key-d.

 

  1. In some cases, when the JAWS dictionary is invoked, the user will be asked if they want a dictionary created for that application. If the suggestion is accepted, the dialog won’t appear again. If rejected, the user will need to go through the dialog each time the JAWS dictionary is opened in that application and select “cancel.”

 

  1. Once an application-specific JAWS dictionary is created or if one was a VFO/FS factory setting, the user can add new entries for it or go immediately to the default dictionary with shift-control-d. Or they can skip this step altogether by clicking on the desktop shortcut they created by following your directions.

 

I don’t know why VFO/FS made allowances for application-specific JAWS dictionaries, and no one has posted any ideas. All it seems to have done so far is contribute to a very long thread.

Hi Jeff,

 

When you press, Insert + D, in a specific application you're being asked if you want to create a dictionary for that application.  Tab to, Cancel, and press the spacebar and that application dictionary won't be created and you'll be taken to the default Jaws dictionary.  Have you read all the posts' on this thread?  All this has been explained a couple of times.  If you have an IE dictionary that's because you've allowed it to be created, not because it was created without asking you or on its own.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Ok, I've seen 2 different behaviors with respect to opening a dictionary
file with insert-d.

If I press insert-d while I'm here in Thunderbird, a dialog opens asking
for the dictionary name with Thunderbird.jdf as the suggested default. I
can press escape on that dialog and it closes with the Dictionary
Manager open to the default.jdf file.

However, if I press insert-d while in an Internet Explorer window, the
Dictionary Manager opens with the Internet Explorer.jdf file already
open. The thing is, I never created an Internet Explorer dictionary,
unless I did it accidentally or JAWS created it when I pressed insert-d.

This is confusing because it makes it seem like a dictionary file is
automatically created at the time insert-d is pressed. Most of the
pronunciations I want to define occur when I'm in Internet Explorer, but
I want them to be defined globally, not just in IE. I suppose I
accidentally created the Internet Explorer.jdf file somehow, but the
alternative of having to cancel the dictionary creation dialog seems
just as annoying. So, maybe I'll just leave this IE dictionary. I assume
it's not doing any harm.

getting my Jaws 2018 scann OCR future to work

Casey
 

Hi yesterday I was sent A scanned image PDF file.

So I went to the reginize with Jaws and it told me that my OCR future was not installed.

So I contacted VFO and they gave me the age where to down load the file for the OCR furute and also the latest update for Jaws 2018 the small monthly updates that they put out.

and they also gave me the steps on what to do and how to do it.

And they also told me how to do A repair on my 2018 if I have to.

So I have tone all of that and was getting an error.

That said an earlier version of this was installed meaning the OCR stuff.

So I went in to add remove programs and found it and removed that part of it and tried again and no luck.

So I sent off an e-mail to VFO tech support.

And they asked me what error I was getting and i e-mailed them back and asked them maybe they could do A tandem session and assist me with this.

So they got back to me and said that maybe I would have to uninstall my Jaws 2018 and the shared components.

I am really hoping that I don't have to uninstall my Jaws 2018 cause I have stuff set the way I want it but if i have to i have to.

I still have my Jaws 18 installed on my machine as well.

So can anyone hear assist me in getting this OCR working before I go ahead and call VFO and have them tandem in to my computer and assist me with this?

I am hoping someone hear can give me A hand with this I would really like to get this OCR with Jaws working correctly.

Thank you all very much and hope that i can get some help with this hear on the list.
