Re: JAWS and Windows Messenger

yes and I don't believe there is a "fix" for live and j10, the only fixes I 
know of is either;
1. go back to windows messenger.
or 2. upgrade your jaws to j-12

sorry,

  Howdy,

   

  I just installed Windows Live yesterday, so I'm running that particular 
version.

   

  I'm also running JFW 10.0.1139.

   

  What has now been happening is that my friend types something in, and JAWS 
will read it the first time but when I try to use my jaws cursor or other 
commands, I can't get it to read anything but graphics and the menu bar.

  It's annoying.

  hello there;

   

  well, if your using windows live 2011,

  you need to,

   

  1, open messenger,

   

  2, shift+tab until you hear;

  toggle layout button, and press enter.

   

  now, you should be able to see your contact list, online/offline,

  and you should be able to read the messages.

    Howdy,

     

    I am needing to use Windows Live Messenger very soon.  I've loaded it on to 
my Vista machine with JAWS 10.  I know.I know, I need to upgrade, and will do 
that in a while.

    Anyway, when trying to use it with someone, I couldn't get JAWS to read the 
messages that I was typing or the messages that my friend was typing to me.

     

    I used to use it on a Netbook computer with Windows XP and JAWS 10, but 
something's different here.

     

    Do I need specific scripts or certain commands to use it?  It's kind of 
necessary.

    Thanks.

    Jim
