Subject: [jaws-users] JAWS not reading Adobe Acrobat Reader DC documents



Hi,

I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on my new windows-10 computer using the
latest version of JAWS. My memory is that, when we tested Adobe a couple of
months ago I was able to open and read a .pdf document.

Now, when I open a .pdf document using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the
keyboard
seems to be disabled and JAWS does not read the document. I'm unable to
arrow around the screen using my keyboard. Interestingly, my friend, who
helped me set up the computer, is able to maneuver around the screen using
Quick Assist (he's remoted into my computer) and is able to see documents
on
the screen.

This behavior is not document specific and is making it impossible for me
to
read important (to me) .pdf documents.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

John



Ps If there is an alternative program to Adobe that will let me
successfully read and convert .pdf documents to Word, I'd love to hear
about
it.

Thanks.

Hi,


Sounds like your using office 2016 and not office 365 which in the case, the office clasic scripts would be loaded and not the office 365 scripts.

Good Afternoon,

 

I’m running JAWS Professional 2019.1904.60 on a Windows 10 machine. I’m also running Microsoft Office Retail 16.0.48.38000 (or something similar, I’m unable to copy the info that’s spoken when control+insert+v is pressed for the exact version number). I write all this to say I’ve read the “What’s New in JAWS 2019,” but I’m not sure the proper scripts are loaded for me when using JAWS with Office applications. The “classic” scripts are still being utilized, but if I’m reading and understanding the JAWS 2019 information correctly, more up-to-date scripts should load when I’m using the office applications?

 

I appreciate any feedback concerning the new script separation that’s implemented in JAWS 2019.

Open Adobe Acrobat Reader and press Control-K to bring up the Preferences dialogue.?? Scroll down the list to Security Enhanced and tab to the check box labeled"Enable protected mode at start up", and make sure that it is unchecked, and tab to the Okay button.??

Hold down the, Insert key, then press the, spacebar, to activate the layered keystroke feature then press the letter, Z.  This will temporarily bypass your settings and put Jaws into it's factory default settings mode.  
 
If Jaws reads the Settings Center and default all applications correctly while in the factory default settings then it's one of your settings that's causing the weird behavior and now the trick is finding which setting.
This keystroke sequence is a toggle so, press the key combination to go back to your personal settings.

I don’t think it isn’t that they don’t care.  What is causing the issue?  Is it a issue they can work around?  Is it a Microsoft issue?  Is it a Jaws issue?  There are so many variables.  I would advise calling and filing a trouble ticket.  I would be specific and detailed in your trouble report.

It is also very difficult now to edit a group e-mail list.

 

If this is a problem for others, we need to continue to make FS aware of it.  I recall trying once a year or so ago when using the latest Jaws version with Outlook 2016 on an older Windows 7 computer, and didn’t get very far.  I’m currently using Outlook 2016 with windows 10, and keep hoping the problem will be addressed in later Jaws updates.

Hi. I’m having a major problem with Outlook-2019 and the latest version of JAWS. When I go into a group in my contact list, I expect to see the name of the group, then tab over and see the list of members. Expected behavior is that I can arrow down and hear each member, or at least their e-mail address. That’s not happening. Now, when I open a group and tab to names, I only hear the e-mail of the first person in my list. When I arrow down I hear that same e-mail, plus “selected unavailable”. This happens no matter how many times I arrow down (or up). Visually, the cursor is moving to each name on my list.

When I tab and then backtab, however, JAWS does rad the name I’m actually on. So if I arrow down twice, tab then back-tab, I’ll hear the correct e-mail, and JAWS will read that e-mail – the one I’m currently on. When I arrow down, however, or arrow up, JAWS reads that same e-mail.

For the record, Outlook worked perfectly in Windows-7 with an earlier version of Outlook.

Does anyone know what’s going on?

My contacts are set to “card view”, which was true in my Windows-7 outlook.

I’m using Windows-10, latest JAWS, and Outlook-2019.

Re: wlm contact list

Ron Kolesar
 

You can reach the contacts via one of three ways.
1. If you simply want to add a new contact, do the following for WLM
I have my WLM shortcut on the desktop as mail.
Simply go to the shortcut and smack the enter key or abuse the spacebar to open the wlm folder.
Then not while in a mailbox, but outside of a mailbox, do a ctrl and shift  and the letter c altogether for about a second then release the three keys.
Simply following the prompts for adding first name and so on as you tab from left to right.
Alt t is for contact, alt P is for personal and alt w is for work. after you’ve filled out all of the fields and you tab across, you’ll see its either add new contact or save new contact, I don’t remember at the moment.
Simply abuse the enter key or the spacebar.
So that’s one way.
2. The second way is as follows for shipping letters.
Do a alt n for new message, shift tab back once and you should see select contacts.
Simply smack the enter key and or abuse the spacebar and down arrow your way through your address book.
When you come to the address you want, do a ctrl t and tab over to I believe to button or the ok button and abuse it.
Then simply tab over to the subject field and body fields and write your letter.
The alt s to spell check the letter and a f5 to ship the letter.
3. Also, one last way for shipping a contact.
Do a alt n for a new message and start typing in the person’s name, their e-mail should pop into the to field, then simply tab over to the subject and body fields and write your letter.
For my fellow ham radio operators friends, I have their call signs in the nickname field and I bring the address up via their call sign which is their nicknames.
Hope this information is helpful.

Subject: [jaws-users] major problem with JAWS and Outlook-2019 contacts

 

Hi. I’m having a major problem with Outlook-2019 and the latest version of JAWS. When I go into a group in my contact list, I expect to see the name of the group, then tab over and see the list of members. Expected behavior is that I can arrow down and hear each member, or at least their e-mail address. That’s not happening. Now, when I open a group and tab to names, I only hear the e-mail of the first person in my list. When I arrow down I hear that same e-mail, plus “selected unavailable”. This happens no matter how many times I arrow down (or up). Visually, the cursor is moving to each name on my list.

When I tab and then backtab, however, JAWS does rad the name I’m actually on. So if I arrow down twice, tab then back-tab, I’ll hear the correct e-mail, and JAWS will read that e-mail – the one I’m currently on. When I arrow down, however, or arrow up, JAWS reads that same e-mail.

For the record, Outlook worked perfectly in Windows-7 with an earlier version of Outlook.

Does anyone know what’s going on?

My contacts are set to “card view”, which was true in my Windows-7 outlook.

I’m using Windows-10, latest JAWS, and Outlook-2019.

Thanks!

Either try spacebar or enter on them, and then refresh your screen with insert-escape.

I was recently asked to look at some documents on a website which uses accordian buttons; I’ve never seen these before. Apparently you click on them and they open out giving you a sub-menu of choices.

I have tried entering on the buttons, pressing the spacebar and also simulating the mouse with Jaws. Any ideas?

I am using Jaws 18 with Windows 10 and Internet Explorer.

Re: Scheduling Windows Defender to Automatically Perform Daily Scans

By default defender does scan everyday not once a week

My understanding is that Windows Defender will run scans once a week by default.?? So simply changing the time at which routine maintenance taks are performed will not force Defender to scan every day.?? From what I have read, the Task Scheduler must be used to set Defender to run daily at a specific time, but I could not find any way to do this with JAWS.?? So maybe the Task Scheduler is not fully JAWS accessible.

I could not find any settings under Maintenance Settings on the Control Panel that apply to Windows Defender.

There you can set a time for routine maintenance tasks including virus scan

Running Windows 10 1809 with JAWS 2019, I would like to set Windows

Defender to perform a quick scan every day at about 8:00 AM.?? But I

cannot find any way of accomplishing this using the Task Scheduler.??

Opening the Task Scheduler library and browsing down the path to Windows

Defender, I cannot find a scan option anywhere that can be modified to

specify scan frequency and time. Has anyone used the Task Scheduler to

set Defender to automatically perform scans on a daily basis??? If so,

what are the steps to accomplish this using JAWS??? Thanks in advance.

Hi Kathryn,
 
I don't have an answer to your question, but here's a tip for copying what Jaws has spoken.
 
Speech History
 
By default, JAWS retains a list of the last 50 announcements that were spoken by the speech synthesizer. For users of refreshable braille displays,
JAWS has always provided a mode where you could review this spoken information in braille. When this mode is active, you can use the controls on the braille display to review the last 50 announcements that have been spoken by JAWS.
 
Speech History extends this functionality to users who rely on using speech more than braille. If you miss one or more messages spoken by JAWS, you can
press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by H to open a Results Viewer window containing up to the last 50 announcements spoken by the synthesizer. When
the Speech History window opens, you are placed on the line containing the most recent announcement.  You can copy any or all of this speech history to the clipboard if needed and paste wherever you need it.
 
To clear the history, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by SHIFT+H. The history is also cleared when you lock the computer or completely log off.
 
If you do not want JAWS to keep a history of what is spoken, do the following:
 
 1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
 2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default JAWS settings.
 3. In the Search edit box, type "speech history" without the quotes.
 4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Enable Speech History in the filtered search results in the tree view.
 5. Press SPACEBAR to clear this check box.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
No one has more to say than the woman who says she doesn't want to talk about it.

Subject: [jaws-users] JAWS 2019 Question

Good Afternoon,

 

I’m running JAWS Professional 2019.1904.60 on a Windows 10 machine. I’m also running Microsoft Office Retail 16.0.48.38000 (or something similar, I’m unable to copy the info that’s spoken when control+insert+v is pressed for the exact version number). I write all this to say I’ve read the “What’s New in JAWS 2019,” but I’m not sure the proper scripts are loaded for me when using JAWS with Office applications. The “classic” scripts are still being utilized, but if I’m reading and understanding the JAWS 2019 information correctly, more up-to-date scripts should load when I’m using the office applications?

 

I appreciate any feedback concerning the new script separation that’s implemented in JAWS 2019.

 

Sincerely,

My understanding is that the office classic is for older versions of office—(older than 2016),  but I have found that outlook2010 scripts are still being used rather than the classic. Why this is happening I haven’t been able to get an answer.
