are you useing something other then the standard windows color scheme and resolusion?
have you checked to see if jaws has the correct script file associated with wlm?
i don't have your problem with folders not being spoken with wlm 2012, window eyes, jaws 2019 or nvda. they all work.

When you are on a message, it's selected already.
You can hold the shift key and arrow through consecutive messages and move them.
You can search for a bunch and select some or all of them and move them.
On maximizing, do alt + Space, and X.
I think windows + up arrow maximizes too.

If I am sitting on the email and hit the context key, there is no move function.

If I hit V, also does nothing.

Jaws, MS Teams and BT headsets

Peter Logan
 

Where I work we are moving to use MS Teams in place of actual phones for calling.

 

Does anyone have recommendations for wireless headsets that work with both?  I currently use Apple Beats X, but in order to get this to work properly I have to use the microphone from my laptop and not the headset.  This is the only way I have been able to configure it to work.  If I try to use the microphone from the headset, then while on a call I no longer have any feedback from Jaws.  If I leave the mike set to the laptop, well Jaws then continues to work while on the call.

 

I have tried a Logitech wireless headset that uses the Logitech dongle, and that seems to work without issues, but they are only comfortable for a little bit, which won’t work.

 

Looking for any recommendations from those who may have already gone down this path and found something that works.  Just as a side note, wired headsets work fine, but I don’t want that.

 

Thanks in advance …

Did the video settings get changed?
Sometimes people with low vision will change the display settings, and then Jaws has trouble reading some elements.

On my RCA cambio laptop-tablet-hybrid, the keyboard is really cheap and some of the default jaws laptop commands do not work, like the command to bring up the jaws window. so I had to go into keyboard manager and load the default configuration, and then change a few keyboard commands so jaws would work with my specific keyboard. I just bought a pluggable bluetooth keyboard for my tablet, so I'll connect that up and maybe it will work better than the cheap tablet keyboard dock.

Hi Marie,
 
With Word documents Jaws reports correctly, but in text files it was not until I changed something this morning.  I'm not sure which setting I changed, but Jaws is now reporting character count in text / Notepad files the way I like Jaws to report.  Thank you for your input.

I’m guessing this isn’t the answer, but just in case. Notepad, Windows 10-1809, latest release of JAWS 19.

 

Whether JAWS reports the number of characters selected depends on which text selection level I choose. I will be told the number of charazcters if I select all (control-a) or from focus to end of text (shift-control-down arrow). However, if I select with just shift-down arrow, JAWS does not give me this information.

They are wonderful, and wedidn’t get ours until the nineties, when the
college my hubby was working for was warehousing all theirs.  We had one
given to us because they were trying to get rid of them.  I wonder how many
offices or institutions of learning have some mothballed somewhere.



At work, we still had our Selectric 2 we hung onto and still used in the
office from time to time.  For me, it was a great tool for writing on sticky
notes, making out office deposit slips, etc.

Hi,



I was a typist long before computers were on the scene and long before I had
my first laptop in 2007.



One time, when typing on a greeting card on our IBM Selectric, I accidently
double-tapped the caps-lock on the typewriter hahahaha.  Muscle memory
really does work, even when you don’t need it to.

I think that laptop layout should be the default, since I think most people
like having that extra functionality, and most people don't understand that
they wouldn't even know that it was on until they needed that extra
functionality.

And the having to double-tap the capslock is probably a plus for poor
typists anyway, because poor typists often inadvertently press the caps lock
more than better typists do.

Hi, Debbie and All,



You’re reminding me that when I started to work, the computer I had was not
a laptop, but I liked the convenience of the Jawskey being the caps lock, so
kept the laptop settings on my desktop, and enjoyed the convenience of
either using the numpad or caps lock, depending on what the other hand was
doing at the time.  It worked out very well having the best of both to hand.

Hi Michelle,

This is really one of those personal preference things. However, if you are
only going to use your laptop with JAWS and you haven't been using JAWS on a
desktop computer, then I think it would be just fine to learn and use the
laptop settings.

When I got my laptop, I bought an external keyboard with a numpad because I
also use a desktop here at home and a ⠙⠑⠎⠅⠞⠕⠏ when volunteering. I know I'm
a wimp, but switching all the time between the two layouts would have made
me go silly!

Good Luck!

Would you recommend that I teach myself these modifications or instead

For those of us using screen readers and not relying on the screen, it is easy to create your own “privacy screen, by simply turning off the monitor on the desktop variety.

For a laptop, why couldn’t you adjust your power plan for “do nothing,” when lid is closed, close the lid, and plug in your external keyboard?

Re: Moving Email In WLM

Marie
 

Press the space bar to make sure the message is selected and I always get the move option on the context menu. If you are not seeing it, you may need to do a repair on WLM
To maximize any window, if using Jaws, you can do an alt+space bar and arrow down to maximize or type the letter X. Another method is to press ctrl +the up Arrow.You need to maximize both the program window and the message window. Once I have done this, I do not have to do it again.

How do I select the email that I want to move?
 
If I am sitting on the email and hit  the context key, there is no move function.
 
If I hit V, also does nothing.

Select the messages you want to move, press the context key and choose Move or press the letter v,. The folders will be displayed so just arrow to the one where you want the messages.

Win 10
Latest Jaws
WLM 12
 
To move an email to a folder in WLM, I use ctrl shift V. Neither Jaws nor Window Eyes will read the list of folders.
 
Any ideas?

Okay folks, this thread has gone far enough!
The discussion of typewriters, NVDA and TV boxes does not conform to the
guidelines for this list,
not to mention, it has nothing to do with the subject line!
Bring the discussion back to the use of keyboards and Jaws, or end it!

They are wonderful, and wedidn’t get ours until the nineties, when the
college my hubby was working for was warehousing all theirs.  We had one
given to us because they were trying to get rid of them.  I wonder how many
offices or institutions of learning have some mothballed somewhere.



At work, we still had our Selectric 2 we hung onto and still used in the
office from time to time.  For me, it was a great tool for writing on sticky
notes, making out office deposit slips, etc.

Hi,



I was a typist long before computers were on the scene and long before I had
my first laptop in 2007.



One time, when typing on a greeting card on our IBM Selectric, I accidently
double-tapped the caps-lock on the typewriter hahahaha.  Muscle memory
really does work, even when you don’t need it to.

I think that laptop layout should be the default, since I think most people
like having that extra functionality, and most people don't understand that
they wouldn't even know that it was on until they needed that extra
functionality.

And the having to double-tap the capslock is probably a plus for poor
typists anyway, because poor typists often inadvertently press the caps lock
more than better typists do.

Hi, Debbie and All,



You’re reminding me that when I started to work, the computer I had was not
a laptop, but I liked the convenience of the Jawskey being the caps lock, so
kept the laptop settings on my desktop, and enjoyed the convenience of
either using the numpad or caps lock, depending on what the other hand was
doing at the time.  It worked out very well having the best of both to hand.

Hi Michelle,

This is really one of those personal preference things. However, if you are
only going to use your laptop with JAWS and you haven't been using JAWS on a
desktop computer, then I think it would be just fine to learn and use the
laptop settings.

When I got my laptop, I bought an external keyboard with a numpad because I
also use a desktop here at home and a ⠙⠑⠎⠅⠞⠕⠏ when volunteering. I know I'm
a wimp, but switching all the time between the two layouts would have made
me go silly!

Good Luck!

Hi everyone,



I am beginning to learn JAWS, having used Zoomtext as my reader for many

I use a laptop which does not have a numpad.



The JAWS support page offers an audio tutorial on how to modify my

Would you recommend that I teach myself these modifications or instead
purchase an external keyboard with a numpad which plugs into the laptop by a
USB port?



Thank you in advance for any assistance.
