I'd like to thank Mike again not only for providing this information each time there's an update, but also for how he does it. First, the link he provides enables us to download the file to our systems so that we can access it in the future. We need the executable file for the currently running release of JAWS anytime we do a repair. Second, the release notes are presented cleanly, not in the jumble that often results from copies.

I groaned on learning I'd need to install this release after having installed one just last week, but of course, better this than a defective version, and then Mike makes the process so easy.

Subject: [jaws-users] JAWS 2019.1903.47 Update Download Link + What's New



Hi All,



Okay, another build update, JAWS 2019.1903.47, has been released. The download link and what's new are below.



32 & 64 Bit:



http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/2019.1903.47.400/D641CB0D-C1B9-4E8B-8FCD-7978C33
0F6DD/J2019.1903.47-any.exe




Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.47 (March 2019) This update to the March 2019 release resolves a reported issue where JAWS could restart automatically when switching focus away from Chrome. This occurred in Chrome builds earlier than build 74.



Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.9 (March 2019)



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



Picture Smart for Describing Images with JAWS and Fusion



Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed in the JAWS Results Viewer window.
Descriptions might include details such as the number of people in the photo, recognizable landmarks, landscape details such as "outdoors with a blue sky and green grass," if there are vehicles such as automobiles or trains, and more. If there is text in the picture, it will OCR the text and provide that as well.



To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by P. Once the Picture Smart layer is active, the following keystrokes are available:



list of 5 items
. A - Open the Picture Smart dialog box where you can acquire an image from a flatbed scanner or the Freedom Scientific PEARL camera.
. F - Describes the currently selected image in File Explorer. Supported images include BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, or PNG.
. C - Describes an image associated with the current control. For instance, a graphic on a web page or in an email message.
. B - Describes the contents of the Windows Clipboard if it contains an image.
. QUESTION MARK - Displays help for the Picture Smart layer.
list end



JAWS now also creates a new PictureSmart folder which is located in your user documents folder under My Pictures. If a single image is saved to this folder, JAWS will automatically submit it for analyzing and display the resulting description.



To use Picture Smart, the "submit annonymous usage data" option must be enabled in Settings Center. This sends encrypted information to Freedom Scientific.
The images from Picture Smart are then submitted to the various services (such as Microsoft and Google) which analyze the images and returns the descriptions back to us. These descriptions are then displayed in the Results Viewer. If you attempt to use Picture Smart and this setting is off, a message displays prompting you to turn it on.



Note: Picture Smart is currently only available while in the English Language UI of JAWS and Fusion as the services that perform the image analysis do not currently support international languages for descriptions of images.
For users of localized versions of JAWS running in versions of Windows other than English, you must switch the JAWS UI language to English to try out this feature. We plan to make Picture Smart available in more languages in the future as these services continue to expand to include additional languages.



Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome



After working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for release by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer for years. The functionality is included for all users of JAWS and Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and pasting them into Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.




Virtual Cursor Support in PowerPoint Presentations



When you press F5 to start a slide show in PowerPoint, you can now use the Virtual Cursor to navigate slide content just like a web page. This enables you to do the following:



list of 6 items
. Navigate the slide show and read all content, including text, labeled graphics, and other objects.
. Use TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to links and activate them with ENTER or SPACEBAR.
. Use Navigation Quick Keys to move to various object types such as headings.
. Use the JAWS table reading keystrokes (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys) to navigate in tables.
. Obtain lists of objects including links, headings, tables, graphics from a running slide-show and be able to activate or move to the desired item in the list.
. Use the INSERT+F or INSERT+5 (on the number row) commands to check the format and color info of text on a slide.
list end



Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links Now Off in Chrome and Firefox



Frequently, web page authors will create a graphical link and a text link that appears to look the same. Visually, sighted users think of this as one link, but it is really two different links that point to the same location on the web. For screen reader users, you end up having to read the link twice with no real benefit. For years, to help stream line the reading experience, JAWS has offered a feature in Settings Center called "Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links," which is enabled by default. As a result, when reading web pages with the Virtual Cursor and you encounter consecutive links that point to the same location, one graphical and one text, only the text link is announced.



Beginning wit the March 2019 update, this setting is now off by default in Chrome and Firefox due to visual tracking issues when using TAB or SHIFT+TAB on a page. The visual PC focus that moves as you TAB can get out of sync with the virtual focus that is following, especially in Chrome and Firefox.
This
could cause confusion for anyone looking at the screen or using JAWS in conjunction with screen magnification software like Fusion. For users of Chrome or Firefox who are willing to accept the possible confusion because of the visual aspect described above, you can always open Settings Center (INSERT+6 on the number row), search for "Duplicate", and reenable this feature. This setting is still on by default in Internet Explorer.



Other Changes
list of 12 items
. In Speech On Demand (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S), all sounds played by JAWS are now muted. This includes the sound you hear when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.
. The options for configuring spelling and grammar error detection have been expanded and are now available in Settings Center. You can find these settings under the new Proofing group in Text Processing.
. JAWS spelling error detection now works when editing slides in PowerPoint.
. Resolved a reported issue with Braille where the display was blank when first starting a PowerPoint slide show.
. Resolved a reported issue where Track Changes was not working correctly with JAWS in the retail version of Word 2016.
. In Word, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not announcing the word count in a document when pressing the Word keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+G.
. Addressed a reported issue where JAWS would close unexpectedly when sscanning a document with Adobe DC Pro.
. It is no longer necessary to restart JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion when installing or removing voices through the Add/Remove Voices utility. Voices are immediately available when installed and no longer displayed when removed.
. A description of the layered keystroke to copy the speech history to the clipboard (INSERT+SPACEBAR, CTRL+H) has been added to the layered help (INSERT+SPACEBAR, QUESTION MARK).
. Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not saying "Not Selected" when using CTRL+SPACEBAR to unselect an item.
. JAWS now reads subtitle information for items in Windows Settings (WINDOWS
Key+I). This information is automatically spoken for the Beginner
Key+verbosity
level and is off by default for the Intermediate and Advanced verbosity levels.
. The "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is now unavailable when running as Fusion.
list end

windows fire wall

leonard morris
 

I am using Jaws 2019 and Windows 7. I get a popup balloon message when I restart my PC with the following statement. "WINDOWS fire wall is turned off click here for options." I looked at Windows fire wall advance and did not understand most of the choices. I just escaped out and made no changes. Is there anything I should be concerned about regarding this area of windows as a home user?

Re: windows fire wall

Glenn / Lenny
 

Yes, you should be concerned, if it is really turned off, you should turn it
on.
In windows 7, you can tap the windows key and type in firewall, it will
probably auto-fill it with that before you get it all typed out.
When it is filled in, press enter and turn on the firewall if it is really
off.
I don't know what would turn it off, if you don't know how to turn it on.

Re: windows fire wall

JM Casey
 

Well, you should have *a* firewall, but it doesn't have to be the Windows one. I think the MS Firewall is supposed to be pretty good nowadays, but I don't know how it is in 7 vs. Windows 10. So, do you have a different firewall? Windows should detect whether a firewall is in use; if you had a third party one, then the Windows one would be turned off. If your third party firewall somehow got turned off or failed to load, I don't know if the Windows one would automatically switch itself on right away.
Anyway, if you don't know anything about any of this stuff, you should probably just turn it back on as soon as possible.

Hi Leonard,

Subject: [jaws-users] windows fire wall

I am using Jaws 2019 and Windows 7. I get a popup balloon message when I
restart my PC with the following statement. "WINDOWS fire wall is turned
off click here for options." I looked at Windows fire wall advance and
did not understand most of the choices. I just escaped out and made no
changes. Is there anything I should be concerned about regarding this
area of windows as a home user?

I'd like to thank Mike again not only for providing this information each time there's an update, but also for how he does it. First, the link he provides enables us to download the file to our systems so that we can access it in the future. We need the executable file for the currently running release of JAWS anytime we do a repair. Second, the release notes are presented cleanly, not in the jumble that often results from copies.

I groaned on learning I'd need to install this release after having installed one just last week, but of course, better this than a defective version, and then Mike makes the process so easy.

Hi All,



Okay, another build update, JAWS 2019.1903.47, has been released. The download link and what's new are below.



32 & 64 Bit:



http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/2019.1903.47.400/D641CB0D-C1B9-4E8B-8FCD-7978C33
0F6DD/J2019.1903.47-any.exe




Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.47 (March 2019) This update to the March 2019 release resolves a reported issue where JAWS could restart automatically when switching focus away from Chrome. This occurred in Chrome builds earlier than build 74.



Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.9 (March 2019)



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



Picture Smart for Describing Images with JAWS and Fusion



Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed in the JAWS Results Viewer window.
Descriptions might include details such as the number of people in the photo, recognizable landmarks, landscape details such as "outdoors with a blue sky and green grass," if there are vehicles such as automobiles or trains, and more. If there is text in the picture, it will OCR the text and provide that as well.



To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by P. Once the Picture Smart layer is active, the following keystrokes are available:



list of 5 items
. A - Open the Picture Smart dialog box where you can acquire an image from a flatbed scanner or the Freedom Scientific PEARL camera.
. F - Describes the currently selected image in File Explorer. Supported images include BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, or PNG.
. C - Describes an image associated with the current control. For instance, a graphic on a web page or in an email message.
. B - Describes the contents of the Windows Clipboard if it contains an image.
. QUESTION MARK - Displays help for the Picture Smart layer.
list end



JAWS now also creates a new PictureSmart folder which is located in your user documents folder under My Pictures. If a single image is saved to this folder, JAWS will automatically submit it for analyzing and display the resulting description.



To use Picture Smart, the "submit annonymous usage data" option must be enabled in Settings Center. This sends encrypted information to Freedom Scientific.
The images from Picture Smart are then submitted to the various services (such as Microsoft and Google) which analyze the images and returns the descriptions back to us. These descriptions are then displayed in the Results Viewer. If you attempt to use Picture Smart and this setting is off, a message displays prompting you to turn it on.



Note: Picture Smart is currently only available while in the English Language UI of JAWS and Fusion as the services that perform the image analysis do not currently support international languages for descriptions of images.
For users of localized versions of JAWS running in versions of Windows other than English, you must switch the JAWS UI language to English to try out this feature. We plan to make Picture Smart available in more languages in the future as these services continue to expand to include additional languages.



Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome



After working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for release by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer for years. The functionality is included for all users of JAWS and Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and pasting them into Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.




Virtual Cursor Support in PowerPoint Presentations



When you press F5 to start a slide show in PowerPoint, you can now use the Virtual Cursor to navigate slide content just like a web page. This enables you to do the following:



list of 6 items
. Navigate the slide show and read all content, including text, labeled graphics, and other objects.
. Use TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to links and activate them with ENTER or SPACEBAR.
. Use Navigation Quick Keys to move to various object types such as headings.
. Use the JAWS table reading keystrokes (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys) to navigate in tables.
. Obtain lists of objects including links, headings, tables, graphics from a running slide-show and be able to activate or move to the desired item in the list.
. Use the INSERT+F or INSERT+5 (on the number row) commands to check the format and color info of text on a slide.
list end



Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links Now Off in Chrome and Firefox



Frequently, web page authors will create a graphical link and a text link that appears to look the same. Visually, sighted users think of this as one link, but it is really two different links that point to the same location on the web. For screen reader users, you end up having to read the link twice with no real benefit. For years, to help stream line the reading experience, JAWS has offered a feature in Settings Center called "Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links," which is enabled by default. As a result, when reading web pages with the Virtual Cursor and you encounter consecutive links that point to the same location, one graphical and one text, only the text link is announced.



Beginning wit the March 2019 update, this setting is now off by default in Chrome and Firefox due to visual tracking issues when using TAB or SHIFT+TAB on a page. The visual PC focus that moves as you TAB can get out of sync with the virtual focus that is following, especially in Chrome and Firefox.
This
could cause confusion for anyone looking at the screen or using JAWS in conjunction with screen magnification software like Fusion. For users of Chrome or Firefox who are willing to accept the possible confusion because of the visual aspect described above, you can always open Settings Center
(INSERT+6 on the number row), search for "Duplicate", and reenable this feature. This setting is still on by default in Internet Explorer.



Other Changes
list of 12 items
. In Speech On Demand (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S), all sounds played by JAWS are now muted. This includes the sound you hear when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.
. The options for configuring spelling and grammar error detection have been expanded and are now available in Settings Center. You can find these settings under the new Proofing group in Text Processing.
. JAWS spelling error detection now works when editing slides in PowerPoint.
. Resolved a reported issue with Braille where the display was blank when first starting a PowerPoint slide show.
. Resolved a reported issue where Track Changes was not working correctly with JAWS in the retail version of Word 2016.
. In Word, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not announcing the word count in a document when pressing the Word keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+G.
. Addressed a reported issue where JAWS would close unexpectedly when sscanning a document with Adobe DC Pro.
. It is no longer necessary to restart JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion when installing or removing voices through the Add/Remove Voices utility. Voices are immediately available when installed and no longer displayed when removed.
. A description of the layered keystroke to copy the speech history to the clipboard (INSERT+SPACEBAR, CTRL+H) has been added to the layered help (INSERT+SPACEBAR, QUESTION MARK).
. Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not saying "Not Selected" when using CTRL+SPACEBAR to unselect an item.
. JAWS now reads subtitle information for items in Windows Settings (WINDOWS
Key+I). This information is automatically spoken for the Beginner
Key+verbosity
level and is off by default for the Intermediate and Advanced verbosity levels.
. The "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is now unavailable when running as Fusion.
list end

Okay. Well, I had the same results for a while now. My property manager sends stuff in PDF, but it's a picture and I can't read the picture. I ask him to put it in word. Sometimes he does, but sometimes he doesn't. I can read PDF files okay if they're typed out, but it seems like people just want to take a picture of it and send the picture. I don't really feel comfortable doing technical stuff like this repair thing.

Hi Cheryl,
I posted this on the list last week, because I had the same question.
Tec support told me that in order for this to work with Jaws, you have to
select the PDF file, then do a applications key or press F10. Arrow down to
Recognize with Jaws then press enter. Jaws will give you the "please wait"
and your document will load up. Hope this helps.

Subject: [jaws-users] PDF and OCR

Hi guys. I think there was a message about this, but must have missed it.
Anyway, when I get a document and it says empty document and I open OCR, it
will say OCR component is not installed. Why does it say that? How do I
get OCR to read PDF files? It must be a hard process.

One more thing I want to add is that depending on what version of Jaws you
have your message might be different then what I posted. For example Mine
says "convenient OCR with Jaws. In earlier versions it says what I wrote.
I'm running Jaws 2019, and I'm getting ready to upgrade.

Hi Cheryl,
I posted this on the list last week, because I had the same question.
Tec support told me that in order for this to work with Jaws, you have to
select the PDF file, then do a applications key or press F10. Arrow down to
Recognize with Jaws then press enter. Jaws will give you the "please wait"
and your document will load up. Hope this helps.

Hi James. There is no recognize. I tried both F10 and the applications
key. I went to the file. There is no recognize. By selecting the file, do
you mean just highlighting the file or opening the file? Well, it's still
not working. It won't work. If only people would either send stuff in Word
or send it as a PDF that is not just a picture, things would be great.
