Hi Joe,

I'm glad you got the extemporaneous TalkBack speech silenced on your phone.
I apologize for assuming all phones running Anroid have proximity sensors.
My bad. <smile>

Hope to see you on the ANATAD list,
Norma

Hi, Norma,

Fortunately I have some help or I would not have gotten to where I am now.

There was NO proximity Sensor on my phone. Its instruction manual didn't
show such a thing. With some searching, my friend found that this is an app,
which he installed and set up according to instructions.

When I approach the screen, I no longer set off Talkback. As of now, though,
I cannot seem to open Google Assistant so I can make a call. I have not done
well with the phone's dial pad, although I did make a call using it. I'll
need to try this again to see if that works.

It is possible that I'm having trouble because of basic unfamiliarity with
this phone.

Joe G.

Hi Joe,

Phones running Android have a proximity sensor, usually located in the top
left corner of the screen. Any time you want to silence TalkBack, just wave
your hand over that area and TB should stop. Putting the phone up to your
ear should also activate the proximity sensor, although my Pixel 3A does
stop after a few more words.

You will find a lot of help regarding Android on the ANATAD list, all
levels of expertise and a friendly list. A great podcast drops about every

Hi Joe,

I am using an iPhone. There is a hotkey or hot touch for turning on/off
speech. TalkBack is for Androids. Try using any such hotkey or hot touch for
that screen reader and phone.

Hello List,

I'm trying to learn how to use a smart phone.

I can use Assistant to dial phone numbers, and that works. Only one
thing. Talkback continues to talk while I am on the phone.

Is there a way to make that stop? I know that I can call using the
Dialer, but would that be any different from what I am experiencing? I can't
locate the Dialer.

I thank you for any ideas you folks have.

JAWS2020 March Update Build, 2003.13, Download link + What's New

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2020.2003.13 (March 2020)
The following is a list of improvements made between the February 2020 release and the March 2020 update.
 
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
list of 21 items
• In Office 365 and 2019, JAWS and Fusion now properly announce column and row titles for tables in Word documents when navigating using JAWS table reading
keystrokes (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys). For users who prefer to turn off reading of titles while navigating tables for the current document or for all documents,
these options can be configured through JAWS Quick Settings (INSERT+V) by searching for "table" or "title."
• If the view in Outlook 365 or 2019 is set to show messages by date, JAWS and Fusion will now indicate using both speech and Braille the date change when
you move from one day to the next in messages lists. For example, as you navigate a list of messages covering multiple days, when you move to the first
message in the new date group, you will hear announcements such as "today," "yesterday," "last week," or "two weeks ago."
• In Microsoft Teams, addressed an issue where JAWS was not always reading as expected when navigating between messages in a conversation thread.
• Resolved an issue where Microsoft Teams would stop responding for several seconds when CTRL+BACKSPACE was pressed to delete a word in a chat edit field.
• Added a new Language Processing group, located under Text Processing in Settings Center. This group now contains the options for configuring language
detection which allows JAWS and Fusion to automatically switch to the appropriate synthesizer language when encountering text in documents and web pages
in different languages.
• In response to customer feedback, the keystroke to display the text of the current control in the JAWS Virtual Viewer so it can be selected and copied
has been changed to INSERT+SHIFT+V. In Microsoft Teams, this command will also virtualize the currently selected item in a list of messages in a conversation.
• The PC Cursor is now active by default in the Weather, News, and Windows Store applications. Since this cursor now works much better in these apps, it
is no longer necessary to use the Touch Cursor.
• JAWS now indicates when text on a web page is marked as deleted or inserted.
• Addressed issues with JAWS and Fusion not always reporting the correct information when navigating tables in Chrome and Edge Chromium.
• When using the ARROW keys or Navigation Quick Keys to move between controls on web pages like check boxes, resolved an issue where the visual highlight
was not properly tracking the location of the Virtual Cursor.
• Addressed an issue where pressing Navigation Quick Key G to move to graphics on web pages was not working as expected in both the Chrome and Edge Chromium
browsers.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not identifying edit fields on certain websites in Chrome.
• If Contracted Braille input is enabled and you select all text in a document using CTRL+A, resolved an issue where using the Braille command LEFT SHIFT+D
(DOTS 1-4-5) was not deleting the selected text as expected.
• Removed extra blank lines that were appearing in the JAWS Virtual Viewer when using WINDOWS Key+SEMICOLON to display comments in Word documents.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where attempting to use voice aliases to indicate attributes such as bolded text were not working when using Vocalizer
Expressive.
• Resolved an issue where the emoji for a red heart was being incorrectly spoken as a black heart.
• When using the Wikipedia Research It lookup source, only the link to the article is now displayed. Due to changes with the Wikipedia website, JAWS is
no longer able to retrieve the synopsis.
• You can now press INSERT+SHIFT+B in either desktop or laptop keyboard layout to obtain battery status and charging information as well as network connection
status. You can also still use CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+B in the laptop keyboard layout to read this info.
• Added a new dictionary entry for "endnote" that is specific to the Eloquence synthesizer to improve this announcement for Fusion users. Other synthesizers
like SAPI5 and Vocalizer Expressive already speak this correctly.
• Resolved a long-standing issue where configuring individual punctuation settings for a voice profile using the Voice Adjustment dialog box was not working
properly. For instance, if you set the punctuation level to None for the PC Cursor voice, but leave it set to Most for the JAWS Cursor, Keyboard, and Tutor
and Message voices, JAWS should now use the correct punctuation setting depending on the active voice.
• Updated the JAWS Hot Key Help (INSERT+H) for Skype to remove references to the Back button that existed in prior Skype versions and is now no longer
available.
list end

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

I do not know version it is. I'll check it when I can. I can tell you that the instruction manual is dated 2017.

Mr. Giovanelli, your question might be better addressed on an Android list.
Please permit me to ask a question, may be two since I'm Oliver Twist!!

What make/model is your phone?

Do you have the Proximity Sensor turned on?

Sorry, I have a third question: What version of Android is your toy
running?

Ok, I'll run a mile first, and then come back for the answers!! Hopefully,
I might be able to help you sort out a few things. Have lots of fun with
your new toy and welcome to Androidville if you are new to the land!!

Hi Joe,

I am using an iPhone.  There is a hotkey or hot touch for turning on/off speech. TalkBack is for Androids. Try using any such hotkey or hot touch for that screen reader and phone.

Hello List,

I'm trying to learn how to use a smart phone.

I can use Assistant to dial phone numbers, and that works. Only one thing. Talkback continues to talk while I am on the phone.

Is there a way to make that stop? I know that I can call using the Dialer, but would that be any different from what I am experiencing? I can't locate the Dialer.

I thank you for any ideas you folks have.

Thanks Lynn. I appreciate the heads up about the classic skins. I will be sure to maintain those.

Hi Terry,

 

Most of the time, I don’t think it matters.  But, I had so much trouble installing Winamp, as a last desperate measure, I did a custom install and it took.

 

As you will probably find out if you perform a custom install, there are not a lot of steps as compared to Standard.  Don’t forget to use classic skins.

 

I’m afraid that if the current owners of Winamp don’t create a major upgrade, it will be obsolete.

Hi Lynn,

Thank you so much for your quick response. I did download Winamp, but would love opinions on customizing versus standard install.

 

Also, if you prefer customization, what differeing choices are you making that I might also want to make?

 

Thanks much,

 

TerriLynne

To be sure, go to www.winamp.com and download the beta which I think is 5.8

 

Some older versions of Winamp will not work with some Windows10 machine.  I'm a witness that this does happen.  Don't know why, but the older versions such as 5.72 won't work on a couple of my machines.

Re: Looking for a talking thermometer

Gerald Levy
 


I have already checked Amazon, ILA, Maxi-Aids and FutureAids, and none of them have talking clinical thermometers in stock.  ILA expects to have them back in stock on March 27.  I have the Health Smart DigiScan talking forehead thermometer somebody else previously mentioned, but find that it consistently registers on the low side.  My forehead readings are almost always below 98 degrees F, although they are usually a little higher when the probe is inserted into the ear canal. Oral and rectal thermometers are the most accurate, if not necessarily the most sanitary.   .

Anyone know where I could find a clinical talking thermometer? I searched Amazon and did not find one except in Spanish. I saw them last week, I guess there is a run on these as well.


JAWS Screen Shade not Working with External Monitor

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

 

Has anyone else found that the screen shade feature doesn’t work if you are using a desktop PC with an external monitor? I activate the command and it reports that it’s on but I can see that it isn’t. I’ve changed Monitors and it makes no difference. I’m using the latest builds of both JAWS and windows 10.
