Re: CONFUSED! Adobe Reader XI seems to do OCR automatically?
i realize you probably did not get my message.
I have advocated some per Adobe.
In 2011, I spokewith their compliance department and
Helped convince them that ifthe
Kindle was ace(for 6 months) that Adobe would not want to
Not be accessible also. I am sure others did the same.
In Oct of 2011,
F S finally made JAWS work better with Adobe.
Thanksfor your info on JAWS 15 and Word 10.
How is JAWS 16 and Office 10?
The local agency servicing Bllind people and the Cils and Easter Seals do not offer real help but a mere rare basic help—that most people
Can’t get and somehow learn for themselves.
Hence I need to pay somebody.
I have worked with a sighted grad student, but he
Got confused easily and could not explain anything.
I have no problem knowing where iam,but
I need tofinda person who hassome familiarity with JAWS enough
To put oneself andme on the same page to
The Facebook History Channel patge.
I have had fun with sighted help dealing with Amazon (see below)
I have a real beliefthat anything
Dealing with work should be accessible with JAWS.
And Facebook is vital at work.
I aam enclosing my notes on Facebook (see below).
They begin with the settings to make
Facebook pages accessible.
But the settings do not work with
My problems are with the History Channel page and program-related threads.
Facebook with JAWS and MAGic, Lesson 1 (June 2015)
EXERCISE: If you are participating in the live webinar, please open this page outside of the training room and follow along with the
The setting is not enabled b will need to be turned on in either Internet Explorer or Firefox before it can be used. Perform the following steps in either browser to activate it.
1. Press INSERT+V to activate the JAWS QuickSettings dialog box.
2. In the search box, begin typing the word "reserve" (without the quotes). You may only need to type the first few letters.
3. Press the DOWN ARROW to move to the Allow Web Application Reserve Keystrokes setting and press the SPACEBAR to check it.
4. Tab to and activate the Ok button and the setting will take effect.
The following is a list of Facebook shortcut keys that can easily be used once the setting in JAWS is enabled.
· Press J to move to the next item in the news feed.
· Press K to move to the previous item in the news feed.
· Press L to "like" or "unlike" a post.
· Press C to comment on a post.
· Press P to move to the edit box to create a post.
· Press S to share a post.
· Press ENTER to open a menu of options related to the current news feed item.
· Press QUESTION MARK (?) to display a list of these, and other Facebook keyboard shortcuts.
Many of the Facebook navigation menus are identified as "button menus" by JAWS. For example, you may hear the following when moving through the navigation menus with JAWS:
· Requests button menu
· Messages button menu
· 11 Notifications button menu
· Privacy Shortcuts button menu
· Account Settings button menu collapsed
Press ENTER when focus is on a button menu to activate it. You will hear the sound indicating that the JAWS Forms Mode turned on. If the item was simply called a "button menu" and did not have the word "collapsed" you will need to turn forms mode off before navigating through the menu items. Press NUMPAD PLUS, or if using laptop layout, press CAPSLOCK+; to turn off forms mode. You can then scroll down with the arrow keys to read the various menu items. Press ESCAPE to close the menu.
If the button menu has the word "collapsed" in it, such as "Account Settings button menu collapsed," once you press ENTER to activate it, you do not need to turn forms mode off. The menu acts like a traditional menu and you can scroll up and down to move through the various items. Press ESCAPE to close the menu without making a selection.
Similar menus are found throughout the Facebook site, including in the news feed.
The section on a web page containing navigation menus might be placed inside the navigation region. The search controls on a page might be in the search region, and the primary content on the page might be marked with the main region.
JAWS identifies the beginning and end of regions as you navigate through a web page. You can also press the letter R to jump from region to region. Pressing CTRL+INSERT+R will open a list of regions which you can explore with the arrow keys. Finally, if a page has a single "main region" pressing Q will jump straight to that main region.
Note that regions are not visual and are only seen by screen readers such as JAWS.
The Facebook mobile site
the Facebook mobile site m.facebook.com may be easier for some to navigate as it contains less interactive content. Some of the latest additions to enhance the navigation of the mobile site are as follows.
· Headings are used to mark each item in the news feed
· A "Main region" is used to mark the beginning and end of the main content on each page
You can switch to the mobile site at any time by pressing ALT+D to move focus to the address bar. Type m.facebook.com and press ENTER. Return to the main Facebook site by typing www.facebook.com into the address bar.
Note that the Facebook shortcut keys such as J and K are not available on the mobile Facebook site. Pressing those particular keys will perform their normal JAWS function.
General Facebook tips
· Much of the content on the Facebook pages may change without the entire page refreshing. Use the arrow keys to navigate and look for text that may have changed near the cursor.
· Some dialog boxes may appear but they are embedded in the web page rather than in different windows. This is most often when you are about to do something like deleting a post and Facebook needs to confirm if you want to continue. You can use the arrow keys to find the text and buttons in the message.
· When working with a button menu, you generally have to activate it first by pressing ENTER on it. Then turn off Forms mode in JAWS before scrolling down to find the menu items.
· It may be easier to respond to posts, comments, and messages by replying to the e-mails that Facebook sends.
· If browsing the news feed by headings in JAWS, use the hot key H rather than activating the list of headings. Only a few headings in the news feed will be displayed if you activate the list of headings. Pressing H or using the Facebook hot keys will allow you to find all the items.
Endof my notes on Facebook.
There are people who can do techsupport, but they do not use FaceBook.
And every one does so I need to knowthis FaceBook program.

Another situation that amazes me is that JAWS does not support
The Amazon music player.
What that creates is that JAWS users learn iTunes and slowly migrate to the
Apple universe which of course, hurts Freedom Scientific.
I wantas many people to use JAWS as possible so the product remains strong.
Please consider trying out an option to assist.
