Google Talkback 5.0.4.3 official release


Talkback 5.0.4.3 release note


Here is a list of new features and bugs fixed in TalkBack 5.0.4.3.


Web

  • TalkBack now announces when no element of a given type exists on a web page. For example, if the user swipes to the next HTML heading but none is found, a message will be spoken to let them know about this.
  • TalkBack now supports text editing in Chrome. We are aware that copy/cut/paste actions are still missing from the Local Context menu.
  • TalkBack does not repeat the current element when auto-scrolling.


Multi-page Views

  • TalkBack will now announce when the user is in a multi-page view and provide feedback as to what page they are located on (when swiping left and right with two fingers), for example, “page 1 of 3”, along with the name of the page (if provided by a developer via the contentDescription). An example can be seen in the Phone app.


Text Editing

  • TalkBack now reports the text that has been selected, copied, cut or pasted.


Miscellaneous

  • There is a new option in the Global Context Menu called “Copy Last Utterance to Clipboard”. This allows the user to copy the last-spoken phrase to clipboard for further processing, i.e. pasting into another app, etc.
  • The list of custom actions can now be opened with a user-defined gesture, in the “manage gestures” screen. It is “unassigned” by default.
  • The shortcuts in the “default” keyboard map can now be changed by the user.
  • The “pages” navigation settings has been removed from TalkBack.
  • The “speak caller ID” setting has been removed as we have no way of making this work consistently across devices.
  • TalkBack now includes phonetic spelling tables for most of the languages supported by TalkBack.
  • Italian, Czech, German and other translations have been corrected.


Support for N FEATURES specifically:

  • TalkBack notifies the user when entering multi-window mode and identifies window names and their position on the screen (message: Hangouts on top, Messenger on bottom in portrait mode and “on left” and “on right” in landscape mode).
  • In multi-window screen the user can swipe to the screen splitter and move it up or down using custom actions (swipe to the splitter and then access custom actions via the local context menu, swipe up, then right).
  • When using external keyboard, it is possible to switch between opened windows with a shortcut key. In multi-window mode the shortcut key will switch between all active windows, in a single-window mode, the shortcut key will move between navigation bar, main screen and status bar only. Default shortcut key: CTRL+ALT+up/down arrows.
  • Seek controls will now move in increments of 5% when changing their value with volume keys. On pre-N versions the seek bar would only move in increments of 20%.
  • When focused on a seek control, going into the Local Context Menu will allow editing the value of a control discretely, i.e. the user can type in the exact value they want to set the seek bar to. On pre-N devices it is only possible to use volume keys to change the value of seek controls.
  • Richer information about grids and lists will now be spoken, for example, “20 columns and 5 rows”.
  • TalkBack will now soften the volume of another audio stream when, for example, playing a video in Youtube or another app. For this to work, the “focus speech audio” setting should be turned on in TalkBack Settings.
  • TalkBack will now speak the number of characters in password fields, for example, “9 characters”. Previously, TalkBack did not speak anything as if the field was empty.


Enjoy! On behalf of Talkback Team


Kemaskini JAWS 17.0.2619 dikeluarkan



Sehari sebelum kemaskini Windows 10 diperkenalkan, pihak Freedom Scientific telah mengeluarkan kemaskini terbaru JAWS, iaitu JAWS 17.0.2619. Apabila versi JAWS ini digunakan pada versi baru Windows 10 yang bakal dikeluarkan, JAWS berkebolehan untuk memberitahu Windows agar tidak menggunakan Microsoft Edge sebagai pelayar utama apabila Cortana search digunakan. Sebaliknya jika perisian JAWS sedang berjalan, segala carian melalui Cortana pada Windows 10 akan dipaparkan menggunakan pelayar web yang ditetapkan sebagai pelayar asal oleh pengguna Windows 10. Perubahan ini tidak akan berfungsi pada versi Windows 10 yang ada sekarang.


Selain itu, versi terbaru ini turut memperbaiki beberapa masalah yang dialami oleh pengguna JAWS pada aplikasi Windows Live Mail, Microsoft Outlook 2013 dan keatas, serta Internet explorer 11. Berikut merupakan senarai perubahan yang dipetik daripada laman web Freedom Scientific.

Enhancements in JAWS 17.0.2619 (August 2016)


The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 17 July 2016 release and the August 2016 update.

  • Beginning with the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition released by Microsoft in August 2016, when JAWS starts, it now tells Windows 10 that you are using JAWS and asks Windows to avoid forcing you into Edge when searching the web using Cortana. As a result, Cortana web searches will instead be done using the default browser you have specified in Windows 10. This JAWS change will have no impact in prior Windows 10 releases.
  • You can now use contracted braille input when typing in the Windows 10 Search edit box as well as in the edit fields in many Modern apps including the Windows 10 Mail app.
  • Resolved a customer reported issue where extraneous information was being spoken by JAWS when opening a message in Windows Live Mail.
  • Addressed a customer reported issue with the SayTaskBar script not working as expected.
  • Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not correctly reading form fields on certain web pages in Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addressed a reported issue where pressing keys on a braille display were sometimes triggering unexpected actions in various applications.
  • When focused on a calendar appointment in Outlook 2013 and later, pressing INSERT+F1 now displays screen-sensitive help specific to the calendar as expected. In addition, pressing INSERT+CTRL+D now works as expected to announce the current date.
  • When using the ALT+NUMBER ROW keystrokes to read the contents of the various fields in a meeting request in Outlook 2013 and later, resolved an issue where the field content was not matching the prompt.
  • Resolved an issue where the command to move focus to the results field in the Windows 10 calculator (INSERT+CTRL+D) could not be found using the JAWS Command Search.
