Hey Pam,


The button you’re looking for, at least for me, says “attachments and shortcuts”. Activate that, you’re dropped into an edit combobox. If you down arrow a few times, you should come to “upload a file from your computer”. I can’t tell you how many times to down arrow, because that depends on how your particular shortcuts and other utilities in that list are set up.

Subject: Sending Files via Slack with JAWS


Hi All,


For anyone who uses Slack, can you tell me how to attach a file to be sent using JAWS?  There used to be a button that would let you upload a file from your laptop, but I think something may have changed with the interface.  I can find the “Send Now” button easily, but it is greyed out since I haven’t attached a file yet.


When I google this, it says to drag and drop the file, or click on the plus button next to where you type your message.  I cannot get either of those methods to work using JAWS.


I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
