Hi, This is my understanding, or wait for it to download, which seems to work for me on a Windows machine.

Re: a jaws settings question

Mike B.
 


Have you tried exporting your J18 settings, then importing them into J2020?  You could try this just to see if that will help.  But, if you decide to do this backup your J2020 settings beforehand as well so if importing the J18 settings doesn't help you can go back to your original J2020 settings.  Steps are below:
 
You export all your settings by going into the Jaws context menu with, Jaws key + J, if you run Jaws from the system tray.  Then go to, Utilities / Import 
/ Export settings submenu and press enter.  Now arrow down to, Export settings..., press enter, now make sure that the, Export all settings radio  button
is selected.  Tab to, next, press spacebar.  You're now in a dialog to select a name & save location, but the file will already be named and the default
location is the desktop, so tab to finish , press enter and all your settings for that Jaws version will be saved to the desktop.  After you install Jaws
just import this settings file.

 
Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Re: a jaws settings question

Mike B.
 


Just for the hell of it try using the touch cursor to see if you can pick up a button or another control that the Jaws PC cursor isn't picking up.  Gene is probably correct, but in this situation it doesn't hurt to try other options for experimentation sake.  It might be that one of those graphics needs to be clicked on to make the Okay button active.

Re: Is there a way to determine who is talking in Zoom?

Norma A. Boge
 

You didn't say which Outlook you're referring to, but in 365 Control 2 opens
the calendar.
Control Shift A is for a new appointment. Just speaking for
365 to avoid confusion.

I don't know why you would have to use the bypass command. JAWS shouldn't
use control 2 for anything. It isn't a standard screen-reader command and I
found out now that Outlook uses it for create an appointment.

No, but are you using control 2? That would be a most unlikely command for
a screen-reader to use, particularly since it is used in some programs like
Windows Media Player to change where you are in the program.

Gene, Using NVDA, which I presume you used, did you have to do a bypass
command, I did for jaws.
I ask that because lol, someone spoke today and by the time I issued those
two keystrokes, they finished talking and I didn't catch the name.

The command is a Zoom command. it isn't a screen-reader command. A sighted
friend told me there is a visual way the program shows who is speaking.
Presumably, the underlying information the program uses for the visual
display is accessible to the screen-reader. The screen doesn't change
because sighted people already have the information. I assume the
screen-reader is made to speak by the program using whatever it uses to
force speech whenever an alert is spoken.

Gene,
I forgot to ask since I am still trying to determine if this key stroke is
screen reader exclusive.
I have no one to test it on using NVDA but when using it in a meeting
earlier today at work using jaws latest, I had to evoke the bypass key then
press CTRL 2.
My coworkers who do not use any screen reader, it didn't work. Then again,
why would it, they don't need to hear who is talking, I suppose as they can
probably tell in another way?

Thanks to those who gave information. I tried control 2 in a test meeting
and it worked. I had looked at a list of shortcut keys in the past but
there are so many I thought it might be faster and easier to ask.

That's an important command for people to know. I often wonder who is
speaking in a meeting if I don't know the people or don't know them well.

To clarify, because I want my whole message in the message body in case

Zoom announce who is talking? I haven't found one and nothing in the

I don't use JAWS anymore, but it would still be good to know if it can do

Is there a way, either using JAWS or NVDA, to determine who is speaking? I
haven't seen any command to do so and when I've looked around the interface,
I see no way the screen-reader can tell you that.

Thanks for information.

Subject: [TechTalk] a jaws settings question

Hi all,

I have a baseball game from strat-o-matic.com on my computer that I've
been playing for about 3 months now, and quite often after I make the
changes I want to make before playing a game the okay button I need to
use to move on is grayed out and isn't a button as it should be. I'm
hoping that somebody here can suggest a setting in jaws that might solve
this problem, although maybe not because it may work one time and not
the next and it's with the same settings.

I have another blind friend who plays the game and this never happens to
him, and btw the game works best with jaws 2018. There are graphics
before each player's name that jaws 2018 voices that 2020 doesn't and
that's the reason that we can't use 2020.

If anybody has any ideas please send them my way.

DO you have automatic smart sync enabled? This link may explain.

Hi,

I’m unsure if this is a mac related question or dropbox.

What  happening is when someone puts a file in my dropbox, for example, a mp3 it will not play when I vo space or space.

I have to go to sync, click local, leave the db window and come back in and then I can play. How can I set it up so it will play after vo spacing.

Thank you,

Re: MP3 Direct Cut Splitting with Cue Marks

Gene
 

I've never bothered with cue points. I don't know if one method is faster and easier than the other, but I manually set markers, then do what I want to do with whatever is between them.

If you want to save all the songs in an album in separate files, you can do the following:
First, remove any blank space or space at the beginning of the file containing audio.
Set the start marker at the beginning of the file with b. Move to where you want the file to begin and press n to set the end marker. Then press the delete key.
Now, set the start marker again at the beginning of the file. This would be the first song, in this case.
Move to the end of the song and set the end marker.
Now use the save selected option to save the song.
The command is control e. Write the name you want to give the song and press enter.
The song will be saved. After you save it, delete it with the delete key.
Now set the start marker at the beginning of the file again.
I am assuming that there is some blank space between songs. Move to the start of the song, set the end marker just before the beginning, and delete.
Now follow the procedure I outlined above.

I haven't described how to do fine editing, which you may want to do when moving the markers to the end of a song, so you can be at the end and not leave unwanted blank space or not leave unwanted blank space at the beginning. I may explain it in another message or I may send you a link to download my MP3 tutorial which teaches the basics, including editing.

Subject: [TechTalk] MP3 Direct Cut Splitting with Cue Marks

In MP3 Direct Cut, how does one manually place cue points in an MP3 file
to enable splitting of an MP3 album into individual song tracks? I am
aware of pressing control-shift-a to enable auto splitting by time
segments, but I cannot locate in the manual how you use the keyboard to
manually place cue points between each song track.

Re: MP3 Direct Cut Splitting with Cue Marks

Steve Matzura
 

B for Beginning and N for End. Don't know why N = End, but it does. You move the pointer to wherever you want to start cutting either with the PageDown key or by typing a time into the not-so-obvious edit field, then press B to mark the beginning, move the time line pointer again and pres N.

You may be able to correct the situation in JAWS using the speech dictionary.

Well, folks, heard back from freedom and I was right! Jaws is the one with the issue reguarding page break announcements. So they are working on it apparently. So all this time I was not losing my mind about reading page breaks when I had it set to not too, woe. “This has been reported to development to look at. It is slated for a future release of JAWS.

Bug number is: 113524.” So if you using jaws, it will not be fixed till a future release hopefully. It has been broken since j2018. Cheers Heather

Sorry, some of my messages went to the junk folder. So I am using notepad with windows10 latest. So I was able to make the screen reader not announce page breaks; not take them out. I followed jene’s directions as follows: The steps to ignore page breaks with nvda.insert n to turn on NVDA.

step2 arrow down to preferences; arrow down to settings; arrow down twice punctuation symbol' inter on that, and shift tab once, in the edit box; type page break'; next tab twice to level combo box all. tab to okay.

I have sent a inquiry to freedom to see how to reproduce the same outcome with jaws; and waiting for the tec support to get back to me! Reading is some much more pleasant not hearing page break when reading text. Cheers Heather

I am not saying you are wrong that you have read a lot of documents and not

heard page break announced. But the problem occurs when you export a

document from Openbook to a text file. I don't know what other programs

leave page breaks in the file when you export or save them in text format

from another format. Other list members may want to discuss that.



I also don't know if this problem occurs if you read a text file in Word or

in many other word processors. I do know that if you read a text file

exported from Openbook in Notepad, that the page break is spoken. The

person didn't explain what program she is using to read the document. We

dohn't know the history of the document, whether someone sent it to her, or

whether she exported it in text format from a program nor what program she

is using to read the program.



But the problem does make perfect sense. If the page breaks are retained,

they will be shown in notepad as if they were revealed codes and NVDA speaks

them unless you make the adjustment I discussed in earlier messages. If the

person does what has been suggested, the problem will be solved.



My guess is that the person is using Notepad to read the file, though we

don't know that and that it was exported from another program. She may not

know the history of the file if it were sent to her.
