Moderated Re: Tips for File Explorer

Van Lant, Robin


I have used some of the approaches others have mentioned for copying the path name to the clipboard and reading there. You can read it in the address bar, but I think it only works letter by letter, not work by word.   To aid with your question on keeping focus in the address bar, you might try my preferred approach. After I go to the address bar with Alt D, I will hit insert up arrow to read the path name. If I need to inspect it further, I just open Jaws speech history with Insert spacebar then H and review it there. I just tested it again and was able to read work by word.  A simple press of Escape key exits that window and you are back where you were in the address bar.  If you really don’t want to even leave the list view, then you might follow those instructions to have the complete filename read off  in the title bar. Then, you can hit insert T to read the title bar and use JAWS history to inspect the path name in more detail, leaving your cursor focus where it was in the list view.

Thanks Robin for the helpful description.   Do you have a technique to locate where you are in the file system?  There are two techniques that have come up in this thread. First, Alt + D to the path box, then copy the path to the clipboard, open the clipboard, Insert + space, then C, and then review the path word by word. The upside is the ability to review path name word by word. But the downside is focus is moved and it's several steps. Second, technique was suggested by Alan suggests where we change a setting so the window title is the path name, available to us with one keypress, JAWS + T.  This keeps the focus location, but long paths get truncated in the title.
