That Putty thing is indeed good news, as I always dreaded having to wrote the jaws cursor to read what was happening in a Putty session.

Subject: [jaws-users] Happy with June update of JAWS2019

Hello all:

 

Just a note to say that I am very happy with two things I note in the latest update of JAWS2019:

 

First and uppermost, the fact that when composing a new email with Outlook 2016 and landing on the TO: field, when you begin typing a name or email address, it now behaves like it used to, with JAWS reading choices as you type.

 

Secondly, I am very happy they are finally paying attention to PuTTY, the free SFTP client that many of us use to access a remote command line, in my case for Unix servers.  It has a ways to go, as it still does not read the actual line the cursor is on, nor when you backup to correct something you typed, but at least it echoes the screen as results appear.  I hope they keep working on this tool, so important to some of us.

 

Regards,

 

Humberto

issue since updating jaws

Dennis L
 

I have an issue I don’t know if it’s a windows10 issue or jaws.  I alt tab it doesn’t show every thing open.  I have 3 windows open it only goes back through 2 of the windows.  Any help is appreciated.

Re: issue since updating jaws

This has popped up for me every blue moon, but with older versions of Jaws as well.

Unloading and loading jaws fixes it.

I have to imagine it’s some weird focus issue as all the windows show up if you go to the taskview, but anyway, the fix is easy enough.

  1. Open adobe acrobat reader dc
  2. Go to the help menu
  3. Arrow up one time to check for updates
  4. Follow the updater prompts if any update is available or not
  5. That’s about it 😃

Yeah, I can remember this as far back as Windows 7 maybe. Definitely 8.1. Again, it’s pretty infrequent. Enough so at least that when it happens, I just turn Jaws off and on and continue with my day.

I’m also happy with two things.  1 the Chrome issue when saving book marks to folders is now resolved.  This was also present in Edge Chromium beta it is resolved there as well.  2 it works much better with Outlook keep it up!  Awesome job!!

Re: Jaws Tandem

JM Casey
 

Hey Victor.

I thought that 0x80540057 looked like a windows error code (as in, from the OS itself) but I can’t find anything about it, or the other number either. Tried quite a few google search possibilities, which I know you could do yourself but I was curious also – absolutely nothing. Might be something for  JAWS tech support. Is the error happening constantly/every time you connect with this person?

I don't experience this issue and just got a monthly update.  I'm running Win10 version 1809 pro.  Do you have JAWS set via quick settings to read automatically?  With autoread, I need to do nothing, but I can speed up the reading process by using the down arrow to skip initial text I don't want.  Default is set not to read automatically.

Have the same problem even with the June update of JAWS update and office 365.  Thanks for reminding me of this.  I am unable to reproduce it reliably;e.  It is really strange.

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure when this started happening. I don’t know if it started after the last windows update or the latest update of Jaws and Zoomtext. I have notice when I open an email in 2010 Outlook I was able to just hit the arrow up key and Jaws would be at the top of the email body. Now I have to press the ctrl + home key to go to the top of the email then press the down arrow to start reading. Anyone else experience this issue. Any suggestions on what I could change or do to make Jaws be at the top of the email body?

reading minus signs for currency in excel

Dinga Patel
 

Hi,

I want to be able to hear minus signs when there's a currency value in a cell for example minus £1. I can't do this at the moment.

I'm using JAWS 2019 with Excel 2016. I am using advanced verbocity level with the default punctuation level set to some in both the default jaws punctuation level and for excel.

If I change the punctuation level to most then it will read minus signs for cells formatted as currency. However, it also reads brackets and other symbols I don't want.

Is there any way to get JAWS just to read minus signs in excel at punctuation level some or to stop it reading brackets etc when the punctuation level is set to most?

Thanks,
Dave

Can you use your Jaws dictionary to call the pound sign with a minus next to it to say whatever, like negative or minus whatever.

Hi all.  I wonder if VFO could make a version of Neospeech for use with Jaws?  That's one of the most human-sounding voices I've heard; just thought I'd throw the question out in case someone in the know might be on here; thanks.
