Re: sometimes JAWS speaks, sometimes JAWS is mum, and how come? re: Windows Live Mail with JAWS 10.1154

Hi,
When Media Player silences JAWS, please which version of Media PLayer and which version of JAWS?
Thanks.

Does it clear if you Alt-Tab out, and then back in?

Sometimes I've noticed that other applications in the background, like
Windows Media Player or WinAmp can cause reading to stop in the foreground.

Also if there's a background window that pops up like Anti-Virus, it could
be silent, invisible, but still interfering.

Well, maybe this does not happen with JAWS 11.
Maybe it does not happen with the latest update available with version 10.
But seeing as it has been happening with all my systems where I have JAWS
installed, I tought I would post this before I install the newer versions.

But darned if I can figure it out.

While using the email with the Windows Live Mail program, for awhile I will
be using my JAWS to read email with no problems. And then without any
discernible reason, JAWS will no longer read the text in the email message.
It will continue to read the title of the message and navigate up and down
through or tabbing between the list view and folder view and speak plainly
enough. But not the text.  Up arrow, down arrow, nothing, just quiet.  Now
if I select all text with CTRL + A, then JAWS will read all of that selected
text.

I thought perhaps this might be the plain text versus the rich text of the
particular message. But no. When JAWS decides she will not speak the
message, this occurs with both types of email messages. She just goes mum.
So, how come?

Hope someone may have an ideer.
And that my description may help one of you folks to have an AHA moment.


Thanks.
Rik
