Re: Using JAWS to Download a Book from a Particular Web Site

ESR stands for "Extended Support Release based on an official release of
Firefox for desktop for use by organizations including schools,
universities, businesses and others who need extended support for mass
deployments." for us blind users, the advantage is that ESR will
continue to receive security updates without user interface changes,
thus maintaining screen reader accessibility.

Rick, if you decide to try Firefox, install the ESR version unless you
can see enough to use a browser without speech.

Firefox isn't that hard to install and to use.

Unfortunately, I don't have Firefox.

Perhaps . . . . you need to just plain use Firefox. Lots of web sites work
better on one brouser over another.

Dear Richard:



Using Internet Explorer, I sign in with My Account.  Then I search for the
book.  When results pop up I go to its page.  Then I find right above the
Submit button there are a whole bunch of combo boxes such as All Series,
All
Authors, ALL IDs, etc.  I have tried just what you suggested by just
arrowing up above the Submit button, but it is not working.  Someone asked
me what browser I was using, saying that with Firefox it can be done.  I am
not using Firefox, though.  I am using Internet Explorer.

Rick,

Using Firefox, it is clearly possible to get to the download link after
selecting a book.  Note that the book download link is above the submit
button rather than after it.

However, when you follow that download link you get to the "check out" page
where it clearly states:



You must be logged in to checkout.



You have to sign up as a patron in order to download anything.

The How to become a patron file makes that pretty clear.



I hope that helps,

Richard

Dear Listers:



Are any of you familiar with Audio Book Ministries, also known as Tape
Ministries for the Blind?  They have an online accessible library from
which
their books can be downloaded, but doing it using JAWS is very hard.  Their
address is:



https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.audiobookministries.org&data=02%7C01%7Cmrb620%40hotmail.com%7C286abebe022b47204d7308d52739345a%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636458048994177241&sdata=9J4bMuicyhxNDuCxVH6K%2Bd1KnfZyhUIw7lOtl7hbUbA%3D&reserved=0


<https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.audiob


ookministries.org&data=02%7C01%7Crichardturner42%40outlook.com%7Cfbcb94a19a6

182633796&sdata=%2FvJrc2Yfll1LoqCNZDxyLtj2CQMHV7m3VJT2I0fsdzY%3D&reserved=0>






Right now the employee they have who is knowledgeable about screen readers
and about JAWS is on medical leave and they don't know when he will be back
again.  So if any of you are familiar with this particular web site and
maybe, by chance, might have downloaded a book from it, would you please be
so kind as to access it and figure out how it can be done using JAWS?  You
don't have to sign in to do this-at least not for the help I am asking for.
Just go to the web page and find the "Online Library Access," link and hit
the Enter key.  Then if you just find any book, try to figure out how to
get
to the page where the book can be downloaded.  When you get to the page
that
has the book description, you'll see there is no direct link to download
the
book.  There is a "downloads," link but it will not take you to the
"download," page for the book you wish to download.  Instead, it takes you
to the page where there are various things that can be downloaded, such as
the AudioBook Ministries tax summary and various other things not at all
related to the book you wish to download.  When you find a book, just tell
me how to use JAWS to get to the book's download page.



Thanks for any help you can give.
