While Window-eyes may have had features that JAWS didn't, JAWS has features Window-eyes didn't.  there is no one best or better screen-reader.  They have differences and some are better for some uses and other screen-readers are better for others.  And for a lot of purposes, good screen-readers are similar.

While Window-Eyes was not my primary screen reader of choice it was a very nice, full-featured screen reader. As Dave correctly said it offered some unique features which are not found in JAWS.

With Windows 10 and Web browsers changing so quickly Window-Eyes is not as useful as it once was and so I don't really recommend it for users of Windows 10.

For those who are interested I wrote a tribute to Window-Eyes after it had been discontinued.

Oh, in the blog entry that I referenced in a previous message I mention that Window-Eyes was the only screen reader that I knew of which could launch in safe mode. I think that Narrator now does this but I don't believe that it did when I wrote that blog post or else I may not have been aware that Narrator had the feature.

Pamela,

If my memory is correct you can press alt-semicolon and alt-apostrophe to move to the next or previous spelling error if you use Window-Eyes in a Word document. This is a feature that I really liked and I never understood why JAWS never implemented it. I requested that these capabilities be added to Leasey, which is a third-party addon for JAWS and it did get added so now I have this capability with JAWS.

Thanks.  I'm using NVDA.  I may use Zoom now and then but I don't think I'll use it regularly.  I should be fine tabbing around or using the hot keys in the program.

I don't know what screen reader you are using but if it's JAWS you should know that JAWS 2020 contains some additional Zoom scripts from Brian Hartgen which should become active once you've opened Zoom. Pressing insert-H will bring up a list of some additional hotkeys which he has added. For around $45 you can purchase his Zoom Professional scripts which adds even more functionality. If you're a JAWS user and are planning to use Zoom on a regular basis you may find that his scripts are worth purchasing. The above link will give you more information as to what you'll receive with both the free as well as the pro versions of his scripts.

Jonathan Mosen has also written a book titled Meet Me Accessibly, which is a guide on using Zoom.

Here is a list of Zoom hotkeys. Zoom also allows you to change these default hotkeys to keys of your choosing. You can also assign a hotkey as a global keystroke, meaning that it will work even when you're not in the Zoom window. As an example, alt-A is the default hotkey to mute or unmute your microphone. You might want to make this a global keystroke, meaning that you can use this key from any other program window to perform this function.

On my windows 7 computer, using Jaws, after the search edit box is a list of programs one of which is Notepad submenu.  When I right arrow after submenu, there is a list of files from a tutorial I had downloaded.  How would I go about deleting these files from Notepad?  Your suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Re: Using Zoom

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Hi.

The alt-Windows-S hotkey does indeed toggle between speaking various alerts or not speaking them. However, this is not a Zoom-specific hotkey but one which was added to the Zoom scripts for JAWS. Therefore, people using other screen readers will not have access to this hotkey. These scripts were added to JAWS 2020 and are part of what is called the Zoom Basic scripts. If you are using JAWS 2019 or earlier or if you want additional functionality you can purchase the Zoom Professional scripts from Hartgen Consultancy.

I went to put some people in one specific list, a recipe list that I share recipes with, and the only 2 lists that came up were close friends and good friends.   there is a edit box and a button that says "create list", but when I typed foodies in the edit box, and hit the create list button, FB told me that list was already in existance.  Anyone know how I can have the lists show up again?

Hi All,
 
This is from another list and this person can't get an answer to his problem.  Can anyone here help him out?

 
I am using JAWS 2019, Windows 7 and office 2007 and Windows Live Mail.  Each time that I type a date like March 22 in a word document or an email, JAWS will not read anything in that line of text where the date is.  It doesn't say anything at all.  This has been happening for a while, it even happened with JAWS 18.  Has anyone else experienced this?  If so, can anyone please tell me how to fix this?

Hi all,

Gene, Zoom is easy to use.  When you get that screen, activate the join
button.  There you will find an edit box where you place the meeting
ID.  It's a long set of digits.   Probably best to copy and paste.  
Then you will get a screen with some options on it like turn on video,
turn off audio and the like.  Activate the ones you want.

Once you log into your meeting, alt-a mutes you.  Alt-u gives you the
list of users on the call.   It's simple to operate.

What meeting is this you want to attend?  If you send me the meeting
ID, I can log on and we can test it for you.  I have my own room, and
if I can figure out how to invite you, we could test it that way as
well, though today is rather nuts schedule-wise.  I have a doctor's
appt. and then I've got to see a student this afn.  I wouldn't be free
till this evening, which is probably when your meeting is.  <frowning>   Sorry!

Mystic Access has a tutorial on Zoom, I believe it's about an hour
long.  Once you get accustomed to Zoom, you'll wonder what ever you did
without it. <smiling>

Re: Using Zoom

I saw settings options and other things after I entered the chat room.  I know how to use the various screen review methods and I expected to see options before signing in.  That was what was causing me problems, that I needed to use the program yesterday evening and I wasn't sure if it was working correctly.  When I was able to sign into the room when it was opened, I saw how you work with settings and options in the program.  
 
Thanks to you and others who answered my question.  I hope these exchanges help others who want or need to use the program in future.

Hey Gene. I use zoom all the time. You don’t need to set up an account, although doing so gives you a lot more flexibility. My advice would be:

  1. Go to: www.zoo.us
  2. Create an account.
  3. Download the zoom conferencing software.
  4. Run the client and sign in.

 

If you make certain settings changes before you join your first meeting you will not have to worry about them later. The reason you aren’t seeing anything when you press alt is because there are no traditional menus as such. When you switch to windows 10 you will experience this more and more. You should, however, be able to find the settings button, press space bar to expand it, go through the settings and decide how you want to client to behave. You can, for instance decide if you want to join meetings with video on or, as well as if you want your mic to be automatically muted or unmuted when you join a meeting. There are lots of other settings as well. I know you use NVDA, but freedomscientific did a webinar on using zoom. It assumes you are using jaws, but whatever screen reader you use doesn’t really effect the functionality of zoom.

I'll see what happens when I try the link later.  The room is evidently not available until shortly before the meeting and when I followed the link about half an hour ago, nothing happened except a message that the program is searching for the host.

 

I may set up an account to see what happens when I sign in.  I had the link to the meeting so I didn't do so but maybe that is the only way to get the interface to come up, other than following the link.

hi Jeanne,

In order to use Zoom you must sign in with your email address and password. The host of the meeting should send you an invite email with a link that you can just click on that will bring up the meeting and it will allow you to test your sound there.

Hope this helps,

Hi Anne. Not Gene, but I can shed some light on your question. If you are invited to a Zoom Meeting, you can join the meeting at any time as long as you have the meeting ID. This is usually included in an invitation sent by the meeting host. If the host has not joined, you will hear JAWS say something like "Waiting for Host to Join." Once they indeed join, abell sounds, and JAWS lets you know that they have joined the meeting. Hopefully, this helps.
