Windows 10 Calculator And JAWS for Windows Update 17.0.2211: Windows Software: Accessible Web Host’s Internet 101.

If you’ve recently discovered that the JFW keyboard command Control, Insert, D no longer allows you to hear what is in the Windows 10 Calculator display area; this is most likely do to Freedom Scientifics June 7, 2016 update to JAWS 17. I’d have believed the problem was on my end when I discovered this lack of functionality after taking the 17.0.2211 update to JAWS For Windows. However, the ability to read the Windows 10 Calculator display area via a simple keystroke went bye-bye on both of my Dell XPS desktop computers. Even after uninstalling JAWS and using the 17.0.2211 executable from the Freedom Scientific website to install it again; the previously functioning keyboard command for reading the Windows 10 Calculator display area is gone.

  1. I was able to make it read the display with insert+up arrow key in Windows 10. Hope it works.

  2. Thanks Kavya. While the issue seems to have been resolved with newer JAWS updates; the keyboard command you suggested may very well come in handy again someday; at the very least, for those folks using older versions of JAWS. Cheers!
