Re: strange issue between my screen reader and windowsfolders

Gene
 

To save you time in future, checking memory anhd deleting files is almost certain not to solve the problem.  Also, when you delete all the things you did, have you made impossible to remove the update?  Windows can remove updates but I would think only if it had the previous configuration backed up.  Since removing all these things is almost certain not to solve the problem and may interfere with removing the update for this reason or others you may not know yet, I don’t think you should do it unless you  can’t solve the problem in other far more likely ways and even then, I really doubt it would help.  Since the problem is the result of a Windows update, the by far most likely cause is something in the update.
 
Perhaps contacting technical support for JAWS might get you more information.  If this problem is affecting enough other people, they may already know about it.

Hi Heather,

 

What method are you using to close the folders?  Are you using, Alt + left arrow, the Backspace key, or Alt + F4?  I'm asking so I can experiment with a couple of settings that might be a possible culprit.

Subject: [TechTalk] strange issue between my screen reader and windows folders

 

Hay, I have been having this issue after the latest update of windows but, do not know if it is a windows issue or a screen reader issue.

So lets say I open my documents folder or any other folder  off my windows10 pc and I try to close that folder after I am finish with it. I try to not just have folders open all the time so I close them regularly.

The folders will not close at all until I quit the jaws screen reader or NVDA screen reader. But, it mainly happens with jaws 2021.

It will allow me to close the folder after I quit the screen reader just like it should when I had the screen reader on.

I thought I just needed to restart the pc but, that did not fix the weird perplexing issue. I checked to see if the memory was an issue and I am still flying along. I cleaned my pc of all the extra junk from windows updates and temp files, issue still happens.

So any ideas? It just started happening  after the latest windows update. This is my current windows version:

“Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1110)”

Jaws

“Professional Edition

Version 2021.2102.34.”

MVDA version: “Version: 2020.4.”

I just do not know if it is a windows issue or a screen reader issue. Should I e-mail everyone? Has anyone had these issues?

Thank you all.

Heather

no the eloquence is not compatible with later versions of jaws like the one you mentioned because Jaws has not supported the older sapi4 speech standard for awhile now. I have however asked Freedom Scientific to bring back sapi4 tts support.

From:
PRAMIT BHARGAVA
There are two ways to automate dialing of an extension or meeting code, using an iphone.
What they need to do it add the main phone under contacts and then tap the Symbols button and do any of the following:
1. Tap Pause to enter a two-second pause (a two-second pause is represented as a comma in the phone number).
2. Tap Wait to stop dialing until you tap Dial again (wait-to-dial is represented as a semicolon in the phone number).

The best and the easiest that works for online meetings would be using three commas.

When you put in a number in a smart phone, and that number is going to have to have extension, bank account number, whatever, that might need to be entered, put in a comma, Shift+7, and then enter the other numbers that are required in order for you to reach your telephone destination.

So, when you call, go to Contacts, enter on the contact, double-tap on number to call - VOILA, it dials number, passcode and all. I also put in a comma and then pound, because if calling in, you have to press pound after you reach your Zoom number.

Usually, before the information you are asking about, you get a link containing all the information you need. If you follow that link, your default browser will open and you can launch zoom from the page that opens and be taken to the meeting. You may do whichever you want, but that is a more convenient way, requiring less writing.

Hi, another source for audio books is all you can books:

 

http://www.allyoucanbooks.com/

 

This is also a service that you pay for monthly. I have been using it for a couple of months now. You can try it for 30 days free and you get to download as many books as you like. Once you download a book you can keep it even after you leave the service.

Hi, Monte, I only get one free book with my $15 payment to Audible. But if I want, I can buy others at a discounted price. I don't do this often, though. Instead, if I see a book I want, I add it to my wish list and buy it when my credit comes out, usually about the 20th of the month. I hope that answers your question.

Hello, I have more cds that I want to put on my pc as mp3s. However, I have not done this for a long time, long time. The last program I used was easy cd creator, I think like 4 or 5 version back in 2010 or 2011.I think it was a paid program and does not work with windows10.

So I did not like the windows utility to burn cds in to mp3s. Is there another program that one can suggest. I find the windows version turns it in to tracks, not mp3 files. Maybe I did not use the utility program that comes with 10 right. Thanks Heather

I don’t know what is causing the problem butt there is a way to close things that may work even though you are having problems closing folders.  when you are in the folder you want to close, Open the system menu with alt space.  Type c, wwhich is the shortcut command for cllose when you are in that menu.  That command often works to close things when other methods don’t.

Hi...this is Jean-Paul from WebAudio.Com. I hope you are well! I am in talks with investors trying to raise funding to bring

the audio news app to market. Investors are wanting us to find more beta testers and I wanted to ask you if you know of

anyone else who may be interested?...if so, please please please send them my way. We need people to spend a few

minutes with our app and provide their very extremely valuable feedback. Since the version you tested (thank you kindly),

our iOS developer improved the VoiceOver capabilities and we added increased speeds of normal playback, to 1.25, 1.50,

1.75 and 2.0 (double speed). If you know of anyone who is interested, I would very much like to connect with them! Please

feel free to send them our way. They can reach me at betatest@... or this email address admin@....

we are looking for people who are either totally blind 

or have low vision who are interested in testing the WebAudio audio news app. They will need to download TestFlight 

and it is best if they have some tech experience and are comfortable with VoiceOver.

the investors are wanting more people's input and feelings about the WebAudio app. 

Getting them to invest in an app for the blind has been a challenge. We need happy people yet honest feedback.

Thank you very much, your help getting the word out is going to have a great impact on this app and service! Thanks,

The way I get three commas is by putting my iPhone in touch typing
mode. Then I one finger swipe to the star key and do a double tap and
hold. You will hear it say comma comma comma. After the third comma
lift your finger. Now type the access code.

There are two ways to automate dialing of an extension or meeting code,
using an iphone.
What they need to do it add the main phone under contacts and then tap the
Symbols button and do any of the following:
1. Tap Pause to enter a two-second pause (a two-second pause is represented

as a comma in the phone number).
2. Tap Wait to stop dialing until you tap Dial again (wait-to-dial is
represented as a semicolon in the phone number).

The best and the easiest that works for online meetings would be using three

commas.
Format should be "Main phone number three commas and meeting code" without
any spaces.
Hope this helps

When you put in a number in a smart phone, and that number is going to have

to have extension, bank account number, whatever, that might need to be
entered, put in a comma, Shift+7, and then enter the other numbers that are

required in order for you to reach your telephone destination.

So, when you call, go to Contacts, enter on the contact, double-tap on
number to call - VOILA, it dials number, passcode and all. I also put in a
comma and then pound, because if calling in, you have to press pound after
you reach your Zoom number.

The passcode will be embedded within the link, but it should also appear as

a six digit number directly below the link in the invite.

I don’t know if a Zoom invitation can contain only a phone number. If you
read it and you don’t see things clearly stated such as ID and then the code

and then on another line password followed by the code, then it appears you

don’t have such information.



Usually, before the information you are asking about, you get a link
containing all the information you need. If you follow that link, your
default browser will open and you can launch zoom from the page that opens
and be taken to the meeting. You may do whichever you want, but that is a
more convenient way, requiring less writing.

All,



I am using JAWS 2021 and Outlook. I am trying to find the passcode for a
Zoom meeting but do not see that on the meeting invite. I am dialing in by

phone only, and not activating the Zoom link. Can anyone tell me if it is
somewhere in the Outlook meeting invite that I am missing?



Thanks,

Re: Jaws 2022

They sound either the same or just about identical.  There are technical differences.  Eloquence doesn’t make any registry entries.  Via Voice makes at least one.  This may have implications about using Via Voice portably.  I don’t know what other technical differences may exist.

Seems to me IBM via voice and Code Factory eloquence is the same.

I’ve bought code factory b years ago but wonder fi I needed to do that?

I could just used IBM via voice instead.

Unless I get convincing evidence that the version of Eloquence being discussed is legal, I will lock the thread if the discussion continues.  I have no objection to Via Voice being discussed because I have seen convincing devidence that IBM has made it publicly available.
