New JAWS2018.1808.10.400 Build Update Download Links, + What's New in this Release

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Like the subject line says, download links + what's new is below.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2018.1808.10 (August 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2018 between the July 2018 update and the August 2018 update.
 
Skype
 
Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.
 
1. You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point
not yet known.
2. You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in this latest JAWS 2018 August update. See details below.
3. You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7
or 8 for the best support.
 
For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the
Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".
 
For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands
are:
 
• Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E
• Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y
• Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N
 
You can also use the JAWS command INSERT+W while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when using Skype.
For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the
Skype Hotkeys Web Page.
 
Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another
application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the
caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.
 
Other Changes
• Resolved an issue in Excel from Office 365 where JAWS was not correctly reading the contents of cells after pressing F2 to edit.
• If Contracted Braille Input is enabled, resolved an issue where various JAWS and Windows commands were not working as expected when performed from a
braille display such as the Focus Blue.
• Resolved a reported issue with the text of links in the JAWS Virtual Viewer not being shown on the braille display if status cells were turned off.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Amazon Kindle app would stop working when attempting to read tables in certain books.
• When configuring the High, Medium, or Low web verbosity levels in Settings Center, the start and end announcements for regions can now be turned off
or on in Edge.
• Addressed visual tracking issues with JAWS and Fusion when navigating web pages in Firefox 60 and later using the ARROW keys and Navigation Quick Keys.
• A customer reported that JAWS would unexpectedly stop speaking while navigating a particular document in Word. This is now fixed.
• When using the INSERT+SHIFT+R or WINDOWS+SEMICOLON commands in word to list revisions or display revisions in the Virtual Viewer, if the document contains
a lot of revisions, JAWS now plays a sound every few seconds as the list is being built. After 30 seconds, if all revisions have not yet been found, JAWS
plays a different tone, and only the revisions found up to that point are displayed.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS could sometimes close unexpectedly while reading an Outlook message using Say All.
• JAWS now includes a Turkish language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.
• Corrected the pronunciation of some symbols in the French version of JAWS.
 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

 

One of my friends had an iPhone. Then he sold it and went back to android. But he is not a fan of touch screens. He just does not like them and can’t use them well at all. So I asked him what phone he got. He spent the last two days telling me all about the Kapsys smartVision2 phone, that you can buy from www.irie-at.com  for $599 united states dollars. It has a 4-inch touch screen, android 6.0, 1.3ghz quad core processor, 2gigs ram 16gigs storeage with support for micro sd cards, nano sim card gsm LTE phone. Works with TracFone, at&t, t-mobile, cricket, stuff like that. Accessibility is turned on out of the box. There is a premium version selling for $850 or $880 or so but you do not need it because apps such as knfb reader and nearby explorer do a better job anyway I think. So if you want a smartphone, but you hate the touch screen, based on what I was told, seems like the SmartVision2 phone would be a good choice. You can even black out the screen so sighted people cannot see what you are doing. It has a menu system sort of like a brailleNote, but lets you install any apps you wish from the google play store as well, including other tts engines like eloquence. So if you just don’t like touch screens, but you want an android phone the smartVision2 may be what you want to buy.

Gene,
Reread my message, I said "filter keys" not "sticky keys."
The shortcut for enabling filter keys is hold down the right shift key for 8 seconds.

In Windows XP, the information for using the shift keys says the following:
The shortcut for StickyKeys is press the SHIFT key five times. I very much doubt this has changed. In other words, either shift should do this.

Also, in XP, I just tested this and pressing and holding either shift key doesn't cause the do you want to turn on sticky keys dialog to come up. Repeatedly pressing the key does. Therefore, unless testing shows what I've found to be wrong in other versions of Windows, there is no reason to worry about the sticky keys dialog coming up when you do this.

Hi,
The right shift key will enable filter keys if you hold it down for a
few seconds.
So hold down the left shift key and not the right.

I didn't find a lot on this specific question but it appears from what I did find, one document is from 2018 and is by Microsoft, that holding the shift, the left shift wasn't specified so it appears either one will do, will stop autorun. It was stated as a generally applicable procedure so it should apply in whatever version you are running.

Even so, it's better not to take the chance just in case something installs something to allow a talking installer to run. It probably won't permanently install anything, it's probably very unlikely, but in the old days, Openbook installed Via Voice permanently so that the talking installer would run. This was before it started using JAWS speech but after seeing that, I wouldn't assume that no installation program installs anything. My recollection is that Window-eyes installed a synthesizer to allow the talking installer to speak as well.

I saw a comment that autorun is disabled in later versions of Windows. I know that is true for removable media. It may not be true for CDs.

I don't know what version of Windows is being used. In the old days, you could press and hold the left shift key when you insert a CD to stop autorun. In newer versions of Windows, I don't know if that works. What version of Windows are you running? You can turn off autorun. I don't know if the procedure differs from one version of Windows to another.

Dear Friends, How do I figure out what a CD disk is without it installing?

I am doing a big, big clean up of one of my storage closets, my wife has
been bugging me for a long time, and well ..
I have stacks of CD disks, some are demo programs, some might be blank
disks, and got mixed with the others.but some might be old JAWS program
disks, or Open Book programs.
Or other program disks, that I do not want!
How can I find out what a Disk has on it without getting into trouble
with it installing by itself?
I am totally Blind, so any thing printed on the sleeve or printed on the
Disk is useless to me.
Thanks very much for your help.

Hi Vicki,
 
Yes it's, 2.2.1, and it will require a key code that you have to give a donation to receive.  For $20 you get 3 key codes, and each key code can be reinstalled up to 10 times on an individual computer.  If you ever reinstall Windows you will need a new key code.  Sign up / register and give donations at the link below.

restarting computer

Sugar Lopez
 

Good morning

Yesterday I checked the check box to have windows dtart up sound start and it did for me thanks for that tip.

Now when I restart my computer a windows will pop up and say that there is one ap that needs to close and whether I want to continue to restart.

That ap is Jaws.

 

Now here is the thing. Jaws does not talk, I know it says this because my husband told me

If I tab twice then it will restart but if I did not have a pair of working eyes around I wouldn’t know what is happening.

Cnot sure why this starting to happen

Any clues?

Not saying that start up triggered this but it always restarted with no problems before I had no start up sound.

 

Strange

Using windows 10, jaws 17, office 2016 on a Lonovo desk top

Thanks

Perhaps the coders made it necessary to be in the player and not just anywhere on the page.  But I don't know if that can be done.  If you can actually be on buttonsed used for the player, try being on a button, turning off the virtual PC Cursor or browse mode, and then trying the volume commands.  Also, out of curiosity and because you never know, can you land on a volume slider when in forms mode when you tab in the pplayer part of the page?  If so, do any arrow keys do anything when on the volume slider and when the virtual PC cursor or browse mode is off?

Hi Jim,

 

I have been able to access the list of both audio and video links at http://www.mlb.com/mediacenter.  I have my account set to log in automatically.  I simply click on the radio feed.  This year the TV and radio feeds are listed on the same page, TV first and followed by radio feeds.  I can access the audio for the radio quite easily, but I also cannot raise and lower the volume--except via the up/down volumes key on the keyboard.  According to the accessibility FAQ, Firefox, Chrome, EDGE are the recommended browsers.  Even with these, I cannot raise and lower the volume.  The shortcut keys are supposed to be up arrow and down arrow to raise and lower the volume.  It says to have them on an area of the screen where there is no menu items.  Yet this doesn't work for me.


I think it's time to call the disability hotline and inquire.  I have an Echo device so I am able to access the games through the MLB app and the Tune In Premium App and use the devices volume to raise and lower levels.  This doesn't seem to work on Firefox or Edge.

Hi Jim,


I have been able to access the list of both audio and video links at http://www.mlb.com/mediacenter.  I have my account set to log in automatically.  I simply click on the radio feed.  This year the TV and radio feeds are listed on the same page, TV first and followed by radio feeds.  I can access the audio for the radio quite easily, but I also cannot raise and lower the volume--except via the up/down volumes key on the keyboard.  According to the accessibility FAQ, Firefox, Chrome, EDGE are the recommended browsers.  Even with these, I cannot raise and lower the volume.  The shortcut keys are supposed to be up arrow and down arrow to raise and lower the volume.  It says to have them on an area of the screen where there is no menu items.  Yet this doesn't work for me.


I think it's time to call the disability hotline and inquire.  I have an Echo device so I am able to access the games through the MLB app and the Tune In Premium App and use the devices volume to raise and lower levels.  This doesn't seem to work on Firefox or Edge.

Re: Dear Pam and Gene Thanks, I will hold down the left shift key in my Windows 7 machine just in case! Thanks , Dear Friends, How to I figure out what a CD disk is without it installing?

Gene
 

I misunderstood the message.  I don't know what happens if you hold the right shift down.  Does a dialog come up asking if you want to use filter keys or are they just turned on?  Whatever the case, left shift should be used to avoid any unwanted behavior.

Gene,
Reread my message, I said "filter keys" not "sticky keys."
The shortcut for enabling filter keys is hold down the right shift key for 8 seconds.

In Windows XP, the information for using the shift keys says the following:
The shortcut for StickyKeys is press the SHIFT key five times.  I very much doubt this has changed.  In other words, either shift should do this.
 
Also, in XP, I just tested this and pressing and holding either shift key doesn't cause the do you want to turn on sticky keys dialog to come up.  Repeatedly pressing the key does.  Therefore, unless testing shows what I've found to be wrong in other versions of Windows, there is no reason to worry about the sticky keys dialog coming up when you do this.

Hi,
The right shift key will enable filter keys if you hold it down for  a
few seconds.
So hold down the left shift key and not the right.

Even so, it's better not to take the chance just in case something installs something to allow a talking installer to run.  It probably won't permanently install anything, it's probably very unlikely, but in the old days, Openbook installed Via Voice permanently so that the talking installer would run.  This was before it started using JAWS speech but after seeing that, I wouldn't assume that no installation program installs anything.  My recollection is that Window-eyes installed a synthesizer to allow the talking installer to speak as well.

I saw a comment that autorun is disabled in later versions of Windows.  I know that is true for removable media.  It may not be true for CDs.

I don't know what version of Windows is being used.  In the old days, you could press and hold the left shift key when you insert a CD to stop autorun.  In newer versions of Windows, I don't know if that works.  What version of Windows are you running?  You can turn off autorun.  I don't know if the procedure differs from one version of Windows to another.

Dear Friends, How do I figure out what a CD disk is without it installing?

I am doing a big, big clean up of one of my storage closets, my  wife has
been bugging me for a long time, and well ..
I have stacks of CD disks, some are demo programs, some might be blank
disks, and got mixed with the others.but some might be old JAWS program
disks, or Open Book  programs.
Or other program disks, that I do not want!
How can I find  out  what a  Disk has  on it without getting into  trouble
with it installing by itself?
I am  totally  Blind, so any  thing printed on  the sleeve or printed on the
Disk is useless to me.
Thanks very  much for your help.

Hi Jim,


I have been able to access the list of both audio and video links at http://www.mlb.com/mediacenter.  I have my account set to log in automatically.  I simply click on the radio feed.  This year the TV and radio feeds are listed on the same page, TV first and followed by radio feeds.  I can access the audio for the radio quite easily, but I also cannot raise and lower the volume--except via the up/down volumes key on the keyboard.  According to the accessibility FAQ, Firefox, Chrome, EDGE are the recommended browsers.  Even with these, I cannot raise and lower the volume.  The shortcut keys are supposed to be up arrow and down arrow to raise and lower the volume.  It says to have them on an area of the screen where there is no menu items.  Yet this doesn't work for me.


I think it's time to call the disability hotline and inquire.  I have an Echo device so I am able to access the games through the MLB app and the Tune In Premium App and use the devices volume to raise and lower levels.  This doesn't seem to work on Firefox or Edge.
