Re: Edge browser and favorites

Klaus Vielhauer
 

Hello Brian,


tried the approach via the favorites manager - still quite cumbersome.

It seems to me that longterm maintaining the IE favorites file on the desktop is much more efficient:

I will still save the favorite in the Edge Browser with Control + d

Additionally however - and this is certainly more work

1. Go with control + l and copy the web address of the page in Edce

2. Open the IE favorites on the desktop

3. create new shortcut with the application menue.

After this I have the convienience of handling all subsequent accesses with keyboard searches etc from the desktop file.

Now that NVDA is reinstalled, I find that I can't use first letter navigation in Favorites manager.  It's much faster to use the search feature to limit what shows up in the right side pane.  

It's very, very much like file explorer in layout, and if you know what you're looking for a couple of characters in the search box tends to really cut down on what's available in the actual favorites list in the right pane.

Go to Freedom Scientific’s site and download JAWS 2020 during the free trial extension through August 31st.  You will then have JAWS OCR, which will read your PDF for you.

Yes, that’s what I’m talking about

Go to the messenger website. There is a direct link to the microsft store where the app can be downloaded. You can probably do a search at the store itself too but the last time I tried that, I couldn’t seem to get the right result to come up/activate so I think going through the web is preferrable, but it’s up to you.

Anyway, once you click “get”, the software will install. Once tha’ts done I open windows search and start typing in “messenger”. It will come up and you can work with it from there.

Whomever said alt-a was mistaken. It's Insert-a then alt-downarrow to open the options for whichever attachment you are focused on.

But, if she is using JAWS 18, and not 2018, that could be an issue.

I never used that combination with Outlook 2016 and Windows 10.

Hi again,

If you are using Jaws 18, instead of 2018, that could be the problem.

I just tested with Jaws 2018, outlook 2016, Windows 10 and insert+a works as always.

 

If you are using Jaws 2018, maybe a shut down and restart will help.

 

Otherwise, I do not know if Jaws 18 still supports outlook 2016 and Windows 10.

 

You may need to call Freedom Scientific.

 

I hope you get it resolved.

In Outlook, while in the message, pressing insert+a puts the focus on the attachments, then alt+down arrow lets you decide if you want to open, save, etc.

Or as Andrew pointed out, you can use the file menu and select save all attachments or just save attachment.

If you select save all attachments, you will get an OK button and then you can navigate to the folder where you want all the attachments to be saved and hit enter.

Then, use Windows explorer (file explorer) to go to that folder to open them.

Note, if it is a Word document, you will probably have to Enable editing as outlook by default puts documents into protected mode.

I opened the message.  I then pressed shift tab but had to do that several times until I heard anything about attachments …… Jaws said “attachments button, to activate press the space bar”.  I pressed the space bar and nothing happened.  I also tried pressing enter with the same result …… nothing.  Still can’t get to the attachments.

When you open the message. Shift tab once to the list of attachments. When you highlight the one you want, copy it with control C, then go to where you want it pasted and hit control V.

Hope this helps

Hello,

 

Is there another way other than pressing alt plus a to get to an email attachment?  I’m using Jaws 18 and Outlook 2016.

Hi Laura, when I was using Outlook 2016, there was a time when the attachments section was collapsed and I couldn’t navigate to the attachments. I cant remember how it was brought back, I had IT do it remotely. I am on 2019 now so I cant recreate it, but there should be something there to click on, or get some sighted help or as someone else suggested, call Microsoft helpdesk.

Whomever said alt-a was mistaken. It's Insert-a then alt-downarrow to open the options for whichever attachment you are focused on.
But, if she is using JAWS 18, and not 2018, that could be an issue.
I never used that combination with Outlook 2016 and Windows 10.

          Were I you, I would call the folks at Microsoft Windows & Office Accessibility Support on (800) 936-5900 and have them take a look.

           ALT+A does not work for me, SHIFT+TAB does.   If I customize the read window such that the Attachments tab shows, then ALT+Y will throw me to the controls, but it seems to me you're asking about getting focus on the individual attachments that are attached to the message.
