Thanks Larry I think that did the job.

Patti

 

I had a similar problem with I.E. I went to the quick settings in I.E. – insert+v,

Arrow down to ‘frame update’ and set it to off.

Then save your changes.

Hope it helps you.

Subject: [jaws-users] webpage kept on repeteing

 

Hey Gang,

How can I stop this page from repeteing?

I think it is some advertisement, but it is driving me crazy, but I don’t have far to go

I’m running Jaws 2018, MS2010, and I use IE11.

How can I stop the page from repeteing?

Thanks Patti

Well, that’s interesting, since the majority of people are using 10, and very few people are using 8 or 8,1, but opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one, smile.

Windows 8 was a flop, like Vista was, but they came out with 8.1 and shortly after windows 10, and that is why there was a small market penetration.

Vista became pretty good after Microsoft's fixes, but most people went into 7 by then.

Not many, that's why it didn't last in the market; never had the penetration of Windows 7 or 10; and since mainstream support already ended over a year ago, and extended supports ends in 2023, you're better off just biting the bullet and going with Windows 10.

 

I know of no good reason why anybody would opt to upgrade to Windows 8 instead of going straight to 10.

 

If you are still using accessibility like Jaws or another screen-reader, you can still do it for free.

Hello all,

 

As subject say does ofice 20019 home business work in windows 8.1? I am a bit confused, because I read in the requirements that it worked on windows 10, but still I might have misunderstood; so I thought I might ask to see if any of you has it on windows 8.

Re: Can Ofice 2019 home business be installed on a windows 8.1-64 computer?

Yes, Once Windows 8 was out, I remember reading a slightly humorous article that the reason Windows 10 came out so soon after 8 was out that Microsoft was apologizing for 8.

 

We had 7 at work when I retired in 2017, but were fixing to move over to 10 within the next year.

JAWS J2019.1906.10 June Update + What's new

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this June update.
 
64 & 32 Bit:
 
 

What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1906.10 (June 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the April 2019 update and the June 2019 update.
 
To download the latest release, visit the
Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
 
Enhance Support for Accessing Comments and Revisions in Braille
 
For users who primarily use braille when navigating Word documents, the following changes greatly improve the experience when attempting to access various
document features like comments, revisions, footnotes, and endnotes from the braille display.
 
When the cursor is on a comment, the letter C is now displayed in the last status cell. In addition, as with previous versions, R is still displayed to
indicate revised text, and if Track Changes in Word is configured to display all markup, the letters i and r will be displayed to indicate inserted text
and the letters d and r will be displayed to show deleted text.
 
As you read a document, text to which a comment has been applied, text revisions, and footnote and endnote references are underlined using dots 7 and 8
in the main document pane. Pressing a cursor router twice quickly on the underlined text displays a flash message containing details about the comment,
revision, footnote or endnote. For example, if you press a cursor router on a revision that includes deleted text, JAWS and Fusion displays a message telling
you that the following text has been deleted, and shows the deleted text. Pressing INSERT+TAB while the cursor is on commented text, text revision, footnote
or endnote reference  will speak this information as well.
 
If you press a cursor router twice quickly on any text in the document not underlined in braille, then only font and attribute information such as bold,
italic, and underline is displayed. This is similar info to what is spoken when pressing INSERT+F.
 
Support for Reading Math Content in Kindle Books
 
You can now use JAWS and Fusion to study math equations included in Kindle books opened in the Amazon Kindle for PC app using both speech and braille.
For braille users, math expressions are shown using the Nemeth braille code, which is a system exclusive to English.
 
Reading math in the Kindle app works very similar to accessing math on web pages. When you encounter Math content in a Kindle book, JAWS describes the
expression, followed by the message "math content." If you are using a braille display and JAWS is configured for one of the English Contracted Braille
modes, the message "Math" is displayed followed by the expression.
 
Pressing ENTER while focused on the math content opens the Math Viewer where you can explore the expression in greater detail in both speech and braille
by doing the following:
 
list of 6 items
• To move between parts of the expression, use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys.
• To focus in on a partial expression, press DOWN ARROW.
• To return to the whole expression, press UP ARROW.
• To read all the partial expressions at the current nesting level, press INSERT+UP ARROW.
• To read the current partial expression, press NUM PAD 5 or INSERT+NUM PAD 5.
• From within the Math Viewer, press ESC or ALT+F4 to exit.
list end
 
Notepad++ Support
 
This  popular free open-source editor offers productivity features for people editing everything from HTML to JavaScript and Python. Some key improvements
include:
 
list of 3 items
• If line numbers are being shown, JAWS speaks them and shows them in braille.
• JAWS speaks and brailles autocomplete suggestions.
• Contracted braille input works properly.
list end
 
Support for the PuTTY and SecureCRT Emulators
 
PuTTY is free and widely used at colleges for connecting to Linux machines. SecureCRT is not free but offers additional features when connecting to remote
hosts. Both are well supported with the latest JAWS update.
 
Changed How JAWS works with the Access Bridge for Java Applications
 
Now that Oracle has changed the licensing terms for the Standard Edition of the Java Platform, many customers are looking for alternatives. One of these
alternatives is the
AdoptOpenJDK.
 
Previously, JAWS would only load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from the Windows System32 directory. This worked with the Oracle Java Runtime Environment
because it always installed the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in that location. The alternative Java Runtime Environments do not install the WindowsAccessBridge
DLL in that location.
 
JAWS has been modified so that it uses three different strategies for locating the WindowsAccessBridge DLL.
 
list of 3 items
1. The path to the WindowsAccessBridge DLL can be specified by the Windows Registry. It looks for a registry entry named WindowsAccessBridgeDllPath in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\Common. If the registry entry exists
and the file indicated by the registry entry exists, JAWS will load the WindowsAccessBridge DLL from that location.
2. If strategy 1 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the Windows System32 directory.
3. If strategy 2 did not succeed, JAWS will search for the WindowsAccessBridge DLL in the directories listed in the PATH environment variable.
list end
 
Other Changes
list of 19 items
• In Adobe Acrobat Reader, resolved a reported issue where the virtual buffer was empty after opening a PDF document and the Adobe options to "Enable Protected
Mode at startup" and "Run in AppContainer" were selected.
• Resolved issues where Fusion and ZoomText (Utilities Shortcuts) would remain in Start Menu searches, even after uninstalling the software.
• Addressed known issues where it was sometimes necessary to configure JAWS to use the classic settings for some retail versions of Office 2016 and 2019
in order for certain features like spellcheck and autocomplete to work as expected.
• When the cursor is on a revision in a document such as inserted or deleted text as well as a comment, pressing INSERT+TAB now speaks additional details
about the revised text.
• Similar to Word, if you move the cursor to AutoCorrected text in an editable message in Outlook, JAWS now speaks the message about pressing the Office
command, ALT+SHIFT+F10, to open the menu of AutoCorrect options.
• In the Outlook Calendar, addressed issues using JAWS with the Schedule View.
• In the most recent updates to Outlook 365, resolved issues where the ALT+1 through 4 commands were not reading message headers and braille was not working
as expected in the To, CC, and BCC fields.
• In applications such as Microsoft Office or the Windows Mail app, when pressing INSERT+5 on the numbers row to check the foreground and background colors,
JAWS now says "default" if no explicit text or background colors are set.
• Resolved a reported issue where the setting to allow web application reserved keystrokes was not working in Chrome. When this option is enabled in Settings
Center or Quick Settings, JAWS keystrokes that are also defined as keyboard shortcuts on certain websites like Facebook are passed directly to the web
application instead of performing the JAWS command.
• When composing a message in GMail using Chrome, addressed an issue where a Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) was not working.
• Removed extraneous "clickable" announcements when reading various web pages in Chrome.
• Updated the Keyboard Help and Commands Search descriptions for the INSERT+A keystroke to correctly state that when pressed twice quickly in Chrome or
Firefox, the address of the current web page is displayed in the Virtual Viewer. Note that you can press ALT+D in all browsers to move focus to the address
bar to enter a website address.
• If you encounter an element on a web page with a defined ARIA controls relationship, JAWS will no longer say "use JAWSKEY+ALT+M to move to controlled
element" by default. In most cases, the target of the controls relationship is adjacent to the element or does not provide any useful information.
• When domain-specific scripts such as Google Docs are loaded and INSERT+Q is pressed twice quickly to display information in the Virtual Viewer, resolved
a reported issue where the wrong configuration information was displayed.
• If focus is in a web dialog box in Chrome and you perform an action that opens a second dialog box, resolved an issue where focus was not automatically
placed into the new dialog box.
• Resolved an issue introduced with a change in the April Update, where group names in the Windows Start menu and Windows Explorer were not being shown
correctly in braille.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.9.0.
• Addressed a reported issue in Thunderbird 60 where JAWS was skipping text in some messages.
• Added a new Dictionary entry for "S M E) without the spaces so that JAWS and Fusion will correctly pronounce "Subject Matter Expert."
list end

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.

• If you encounter an element on a web page with a defined ARIA controls relationship, JAWS will no longer say "use JAWSKEY+ALT+M to move to controlled
element" by default. In most cases, the target of the controls relationship is adjacent to the element or does not provide any useful information.

a reported issue where the wrong configuration information was displayed.
• If focus is in a web dialog box in Chrome and you perform an action that opens a second dialog box, resolved an issue where focus was not automatically
placed into the new dialog box.
• Resolved an issue introduced with a change in the April Update, where group names in the Windows Start menu and Windows Explorer were not being shown
correctly in braille.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.9.0.
• Addressed a reported issue in Thunderbird 60 where JAWS was skipping text in some messages.
• Added a new Dictionary entry for "S M E) without the spaces so that JAWS and Fusion will correctly pronounce "Subject Matter Expert."

Windows 8 was a flop, like Vista was, but they came out with 8.1 and shortly after windows 10, and that is why there was a small market penetration.

Vista became pretty good after Microsoft's fixes, but most people went into 7 by then.

Not many, that's why it didn't last in the market; never had the penetration of Windows 7 or 10; and since mainstream support already ended over a year ago, and extended supports ends in 2023, you're better off just biting the bullet and going with Windows 10.

 

I know of no good reason why anybody would opt to upgrade to Windows 8 instead of going straight to 10.

Hello all,

 

As subject say does ofice 20019 home business work in windows 8.1? I am a bit confused, because I read in the requirements that it worked on windows 10, but still I might have misunderstood; so I thought I might ask to see if any of you has it on windows 8.

 

Thank you in advance.

When I did the windows key plus period, I couldn’t do anything, because jaws didn’t read it.

I’m running Jaws 2018 and 2019, windows 10, 1803, and MS10.

This sounds so cool.

Hi Mike,

 

When you are in any type of app that will accept text like email, text file or document, open the Emoji panel with either, Windows key + semicolon key, or, Windows key + period key, now arrow around to the emoji you want and press enter.  Now press escape to close the emoji panel and you should be able to read the emoji you just pasted into the file you're working with.  If this doesn't work write back and we'll see what else to try.  These are the steps that work for me.

Increase Your Traffic with a Featured Snippet Based on a recent aHrefs study, you're getting 31% less traffic by NOT owning the Featured Snippet position, even if you rank #1. Ready to increase traffic by 31+%? Learn how at FeaturedSnippetTool.com.
Learn More→

According to a recent study, the most neglected aspect of technical optimization is website accessibility for the visually impaired and blind.
The study from Searchmetrics used Google Lighthouse to test the level of technical optimization of high-ranking websites.
For the most part, the results of the study are as expected. High ranking websites tend to be fast, use the latest web technologies, and provide an adequate level of security.
What stood out most was the fact that many highly-ranked sites on Google are not doing enough to make their pages accessible to people with disabilities.
The average overall score for accessibility for sites that appear in the top 20 positions on Google was 66.6 out of 100.
That’s the lowest score of the four website Lighthouse categories that were analyzed in the study.
The Google Lighthouse accessibility score is based on how sites perform on tests that measure areas such as color contrast and whether images, buttons, and fields in online forms have been tagged with meaningful names and descriptions.
Daniel Furch, Director of Marketing EMEA at Searchmetrics, speaks on these results:
“If you don’t make your site easily accessible to those with disabilities, including those with impaired vision, you cut yourself off of from a large group of visitors.
Not only is it ethically a good idea to be inclusive, but also obviously you could be turning away potential customers. And some sites have even faced lawsuits for failing on this issue.”

Re: Question about the Outlook scheduling assistant

Van Lant, Robin
 

One more note.  I just realized that JAWS is reading those keystrokes  on other Outlook ribbons, but, when I tab across the Appointment or Meeting ribbon, there are no shortcuts read out. That leads me to think there are not keystrokes to quickly access the buttons on those ribbons.  Best I can think is to hit alt once to land on that ribbon in your open meeting and tab a few times to the SHOW group.  I think you can also do a control right arrow to jump to that Show Group, then arrow once to Scheduling Assistant.

Subject: [jaws-users] Can Ofice 2019 home business be installed on a windows 8.1-64 computer?

 

Hello all,

 

As subject say does ofice 20019 home business work in windows 8.1? I am a bit confused, because I read in the requirements that it worked on windows 10, but still I might have misunderstood; so I thought I might ask to see if any of you has it on windows 8.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Regards,

 

Teresa Arroyo

Howdy Patti,
 
I'm not sure which version of Windows 10 introduced the Emoji panel, but I never played around with it until Windows 10, 1903  OS Build 18362.145.  I do know you can't access the Emoji panel with Jaws2018, or at least I can't on my computer, but I can with Jaws2019.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Hey Mike B,

I tried the windows key plus semicolon, and got this.

When I did the windows key plus period, I couldn’t do anything, because jaws didn’t read it.

I’m running Jaws 2018 and 2019, windows 10, 1803, and MS10.

This sounds so cool.

Hi Mike,

 

When you are in any type of app that will accept text like email, text file or document, open the Emoji panel with either, Windows key + semicolon key, or, Windows key + period key, now arrow around to the emoji you want and press enter.  Now press escape to close the emoji panel and you should be able to read the emoji you just pasted into the file you're working with.  If this doesn't work write back and we'll see what else to try.  These are the steps that work for me.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

I can get into the emogees, but can't make it appear on a message.  I hit enter, but nothing happens.  My wiife tells me that theddre's an x box, but I can't find it with jaws.  Is there a command key?

Hello all

Go and have a look at Glenda Such's site at:

https://www.suchasite.com/

It has a huge collection of information about technology, smart phones, screen readers, trivia and a lot of audio material including audio described movies and much, much more.  I think this site is a treasure trove of valuable information. It is updated regularly and was last updated two days ago.

Hi, Jaws seems to be working better with outlook.  I wish it wouldn’t read compatibility mode when tabbing into the message body field.  I also wish it would tell you the word that is misspelled    The issue when Saving Chrome book marks is fixed awesome job!
