moderated Re: drag and drop with jaws


 

Exactly, if I can move a "loose file" as you describe it into a subfolder in about 5 seconds by pressing Control + X, going to the subfolder and pressing Control + V then I'd tell any sighted instructor who told me he wanted me to use drag and drop to throw away his mouse the next time he uses the computer. To try and teach a blind person to do things the way sighted people do stuff is a joke just as it would be a joke.

Makes some sense. So sounds like doing drag and drop of say a loose file in the documents folder as an example into a subfolder in the same larger folder creates the error I described.

Sieghard. I totally get your comment about using cut and paste. The gentleman I am working with knows about that but seems to be taking a class where they want him to learn about Drag and drop. I know...

Thanks Marten and Sieghard. Appreciate it!

Hi James,

The problem with drag and drop is, that both windows have to be visible on screen and as a jaws user you not always no this.

Hi.

Trying to learn how to do a drag and drop with JAWS. I've opened a folder with some files in it. Pressed Control + Insert + Numpad slash and I get that drag and drop and to move the PC cursor, JAWS cursor or touch pad to the location where I want to drop. When I move to another folder, and press the same keystrokes I get an error JAWS saying the drag and drop isn't found and it might be covered by another window then the drag and drop action is canceled.

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?

Thanks

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks
