Prox3 hardware controller window not fully accessible with Jaws


Recommended Posts

Hello,
the basic functions are accessible, you can load existing hardware controllers, and to a certain point customise them.
The trouble starts when you want to create your own. I tried assigning a foot switch sending midi CC65 to the record button, in order to trigger record on/off, and still keep my hands on my keyboard.
Fortunately, I succeeded with the help of a sighted friend. But some of the things he clicked on were not even spoken by Jaws.
What is spoken for the moment is:

add new ,

function select even though the button is not labelled, but the list can still be opened.
The MIDI learn checkbox,
and nothing else for the moment. There is something missing to make it all work, but I can't really tell you where it is and how it is called.
Thanks for investigating,
Best regards,
JPR

Hi there,
here is a follow-up.
When you check the MIDI learn checkbox and send a MIDI message, a new element is created in the controller. What's invisible to Jaws is the element type list. Samplitude will try to guess what type it is, but will sometimes be wrong. For example, when I pressed my midi foot switch, Samplitude assumed it was a pushbutton, when what I wanted was a button. A sighted person was able to change this for me by accessing the controller type list.
Hope you can do something about this, and also label the controller function assign list,(this is where I chose to assign it to the record button).

Cheers,
JPR

Hey Tom,
if you feel like it, that would be great.
Take Jaws last version please.
I quote myself from my previous message, so you know what to look for.

Tell me how it goes please.

Best,


JPR

Did this issue ever got fixed? New user of Samplitude. I just got myself a Behringer X-touch, and I am in the process of configuring the hardware.

 

I need a way to click on the list of elements to bring them in focus as a list, then I can right click on them to change or modify the function. For now, JAWS sees the checkboxes, and nothing else while tabbing around.
