File counting with JAWS

Chris
 

Hello All,

 

I am sorry, to ask for help with file counting with JAWS, as I have asked before, and cannot find the response I got before.

 

This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?

 

I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.

 

Regards

Chris,

 

You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.

Hi, the only way I've found to get an accurate file count is,

 

1, navigate to documents press enter,

you will hear not selected and then an untrue number,

2, press, alt+v=view,

3, l=list,

now press enter or the spacebar.

it, will stay true as long as the window stays open.

for some unknown reason the list feature doesn't stay checked.

 

 

 

       The impossible is the untried,  Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Just to clarify.  You can get the correct file count by turning off JAWS, turning on Narrator (control-windows key-enter in Windows 10) and reading the screen with Narrator.  But for whatever reason, the sheer act of turning on Narrator and turning it off again will often be enough to sort JAWS out, and it will then give  the correct file or folder count, which holds till I turn the computer off. 

But sometimes, when I boot the computer, JAWS gives the correct count without going through the above bother, so I usually check each time and fix it if I need to. So it’s a bug that needs  to be fixed.

yes I hear you, I think it's a lot easier to alt+v=view, letter l then spacebar, if you have a need to to get the file count.

so, alt+v/l then the spacebar, easier then turning off jaws and turning on narrator.

I don't know what your original answer,  was, but if you press alt + enter on the folder before you open it, you will get the properties of the folder, which should tell you the total size and number of files.

interesting;

 

I just went into my user account,/documents,

I set the view to details,

went out of the folder, back in, and the right file count was reported.

 

not sure how long it will last, but it is so right now.

I agree using the view is quicker. There is a way to keep the list view set to ‘list’ by setting the view to list—(using the steps David gave’ on the C drive), then go into the control panel, press ‘f’ for file explorer, setting in the general tab to ‘this pc’ then using the ctrl+tab to the view page and selecting ‘apply this view to all folders’ then the view list seems to always stays set to list which gives me the true file count.

Hello,

 

For all versions of Windows and all versions of JAWS, I have always had my folder view set to details and have never seen this count issue.

I’m using Windows 10 1809.  My view is set to details, which is where I want it.  Alt-v, then l brings me to details, not list.  To get to list, I have to shift tab once.   I can’t say if setting the view to list would force JAWS to give me the correct count, but even if it does, I would be missing the other information that I want about my files and folders. My chosen view always holds, and should always give me a correct count. .

I don’t know why jAWS doesn’t always give a correct count of items in a list view, but, still, hitting alt-enter on a folder does seem like a better compromise than loading and then unloading narrator to get what you want.

Just my opinion, of course. J…then again, I use this properties keystroke all the time for various purposes, so it’s second-nature to me by now.

I agree using the view is quicker. There is a way to keep the list view set to ‘list’ by setting the view to list—(using the steps David gave’ on the C drive), then go into the control panel, press ‘f’ for file explorer, setting in the general tab to ‘this pc’ then using the ctrl+tab to the view page and selecting ‘apply this view to all folders’ then the view list seems to always stays set to list which gives me the true file count.

yes I hear you, I think it's a lot easier to alt+v=view, letter l then spacebar, if you have a need to to get the file count.

so, alt+v/l then the spacebar, easier then turning off jaws and turning on narrator.

Just to clarify.  You can get the correct file count by turning off JAWS, turning on Narrator (control-windows key-enter in Windows 10) and reading the screen with Narrator.  But for whatever reason, the sheer act of turning on Narrator and turning it off again will often be enough to sort JAWS out, and it will then give  the correct file or folder count, which holds till I turn the computer off. 

But sometimes, when I boot the computer, JAWS gives the correct count without going through the above bother, so I usually check each time and fix it if I need to. So it’s a bug that needs  to be fixed.

Chris,

 

You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.

Hello All,

 

I am sorry, to ask for help with file counting with JAWS, as I have asked before, and cannot find the response I got before.

 

This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?

 

I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.

 

Regards

I guess I should correct my earlier comment...

 

I’m not always looking for the file count.  So, it might be showing the incorrect count most of the time for all I know.  But, I have never seen an incorrect count when I’ve looked.

In any event, It should be fixed.  I think “They” are seeing these notes and will have a fix soon.  How’s that for optimism?

Well yes,s ame here. If I want one, I would rather get it from windows itself using the folder properties box. I’d trust Windows to keep better track of this stuff than I would a screen-reader. Remember too that when we expect an accurate count from jAWS in a very large list, most of that list is actually not even shown on screen.

Guys…

I had a feeling about this but couldn’t quite remember, so I just confirmed – in file explorer, your total items count within folders should be displayed on the status line.

So just press insert + pgdn and you should hear it.

For example, in my i:\films folder at the moment, I hear the following

“1003 items, 1 item selected”.

Hello all,

 

Many thanks for your input, but as usual, today I have not got the problem no  matter which file or drive I have used. Is that just Murphy’s Law, or some thing like it. I will keep the suggestions, in a file for future reference.

 

Once again, thanks for all your help

This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?

 

I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.

 

Regards

 

Chris

Adrian:

 

Thanks for confirming this Jaws flaw regarding accurate file counting.

 

I have noticed it especially with Windows 10 and Jaws 2019.

 

I’ll try the Narrator option.

Chris,

 

You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.

Why not just check the status line like I suggested?

Your file count should be there, reported accurately by windows, not JAWS, which – ok, I don’t know how it gets the information re. list views, but again I would suggest that it might have trouble seeing more than what’s already being displayed at times. I’d only be theorising though. However it is a fact that jAWS does not always accurately report the number of items. We should just do what sighted people do though, in this case.

Hi there, tom. The other comments in this thread are interesting. I’d just add that the nice thing about Narrator in Win10 is that it goes on and off instantly, so there’s no delay. You don’t even need to turn off JAWS, unless the two voices are too distracting. I was pleased when Rebecca originally posted her suggestion.
