In your router settings, there should be a firmware update, if it has the latest software, you may have the option to download it and perhaps you can reinstall it.
Short of that, perhaps a reset is in order.

Sound indicating spelling error

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi. Robin recently posted a query about the clicking sound JAWS 2019 beta makes when apparently reporting a spelling error. It seemed there were no spelling errors. I think I know what  might be going on.

 

I have Outlook/Word 2016 set to autocorrect my typing. When that click is heard, two things may be happening almost simultaneously. First, JAWS picks up an error. Second, autocorrect fixes it.

 

Note that autocorrect doesn’t fix every spelling error, so sometimes the click really does indicate that there’s still an error there.


Re: Speech & Sound Schemes List Keystroke

Rebecca Lineberger
 

I can’t test this in earlier versions of JAWS but my JAWS 2018 says:

Select A Scheme. Alt + JAWSKey + S

This keystroke presents a list of schemes from which the user may select. The selected scheme is then loaded

Hi. I’m guessing, that if you are planning to purchase it, you will have to buy outlook 2016, or 2019, as I doubt versions of outlook earlier than 2016 are available for sale. I say doubt because I don’t know for sure. As far as what will work, I know there have been some issues with versions older than 2010 with certain email accounts. I installed outlook 2007 on a windows 10 pc just this morning, and set up both a pop3 account through a local provider, and a gmail using IMap, and both are working fine.

Jaws and Malwarebytes Version 3.6

Mike, There is no fix from what I’ve been told. It has been with me for almost two years Both Tech support I have in Arizona, called “My computer works.” Said they can’t see on screen and when I tell them I can. Then a tech person here visually not seeing yet with my headset on hears Jaws say.. Well, he said can’t do anything a part of Malware set up, he is guessing and To a visual person, just not there so do the command for Desk-top.

Re: sending a screen shot

Very difficult, all you can really do is to open the screen that you want to take a screen shot of, do an alt+printscreen.

This copies it to the clip board.

I Normally then open paint, with start, run and pbrush.

Open a new file and use ctrl+v to paist the image in.

Hi Everyone,

 

I would like to thank all of you who replied to the problem I am having with JAWS not reading the subject line on my Outlook e-mail list.  I tried all of your suggestions of Shutting down and restarting, maximizing the screen, and etc. with no success.  Well, this morning, I called JAWS and they tried to help by installing JAWS 15 up from JAWS 13.  The installation went well, but JAWS was still reading my e-mail list in Outlook without mentioning the subject.  Now, instead of reading the e-mail on the list once, it is reading it twice.  The tech at JAWS did not know what else to do.  I am sure having a terrible time in opening up every e-mail to see what the subject is about.  Now I noticed that I am finding enormous difficulties trying to find some of my old e-mails by subject since JAWS is not reading them.  I sure am sinking fast.

 

Thank you to all who have tried to help.

Al,

 

I'm also using Outlook 2010 on a Windows 7 computer but with Fusion/JAWS 2018. From time to time I'll get similar behavior from Outlook where it says the sender's name and some number without speaking the subject as I'm arrowing through my messages in my inbox. When this happens, I shut Outlook down, restart it, and the problem usually goes away. But it does recur from time to time and I've decided it has nothing to do with any setting and is just a program burp that normally corrects when I restart Outlook.

 

I know this is not a definitive answer but hopefully the fact that I'm experiencing a similar issue that corrects itself with a restart will be of some help.

Hi Everyone,

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

 

This morning when I opened up my computer to read my unread e-mails, JAWS was reading a bit strange.  When I was down arrowing my list of e-mails, JAWS was saying Unread, the sender’s name, 210/, the date, the time and the size of the e-mail.  Today for some reason, it refused to mention the subject line as in the past.  The only difference was that after the senders name, it announced 210/.  I can’t remember if it announced 210/ in the past.  I don’t know what I may have pressed to cause this problem.  It sure is annoying that I need to open up every e-mail to find out what the subject of the e-mail is about.

 

Also, and I do not know if this is a related problem is that when I am writing an e-mail and I do not want to send it that very minute, I was able to send it to my Draft box.  Now as of today I do not know where my un-mailed e-mail is going.  I am wondering if these two problems are related.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Please bear in mind that I’m not very computer literate, and I need instruction in steps. 

 

Thanks,

Except the ESR is now at version 60, which still has problems with JAWS 2018.
If you're using it without hangs, that's interesting. It makes no difference to me if I'm on ff 60 or 62 (which is why I ended up ditching the ESR) -- it still hangs multiple times daily. It only does this when jAWS is being used. People using JAWS 2019 beta do not have this issue, apparently.

What works better fire fox or chrome. Using latest jaws 2018. I was having problems reading our local paper and they suggested that I do not use I.E. but fire fox or chrome and preferably chrome. I have not installed it yet. Just wondering if it is worth trying?

Re: chrome

I agree that all three browsers are now needed, but I’d like to reinforce Chrome as first choice for primary browser. I was a very reluctant adopter of Chrome, as I made clear when I argued with another lister that it wasn’t completely accessible. In fact, it wasn’t at the time. After my first experiment or two with it, I went back to IE11. But IE11 works with increasingly fewer websites. Meanwhile, Chrome’s accessibility kept improving.

 

Firefox is a mystery to me. One moment JAWS catches up to it, the next JAWS and Firefox are incompatible. Right now, there’s one website I regularly visit that works only with the current version of Firefox. The daily video at that website can’t be found with either chrome or IE11, but its’ right there with Firefox.

 

Chrome works mostly like IE and Firefox. All the navigation commands work the same. The big difference is its menu structure. But once I figured out how to gain fast access to the favorites that I’d transferred over from IE, everything else was minor.

 

The menu structure is navigated by a combination of the alt key and h for headers. I have Mike B to thank for pointing that out. So, you press the alt key to enter the file menu. Then you press h until you find a heading that might be relevant to what you want. Then you arrow down through the options.

 

If I need to explain favorites, I’ll gladly do so when it isn’t so late and I don’t have a ton of other things to do.

I have found that I need all three.

Different browsers for different pages.

Usually Chrome works well, I just don't prefer it because it is substantially different.
