Re: savong files from links in internet explorer 8 and Jaws 13

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

Best would be to ask the person sharing the files to zip them first. That way various browsers will ask if you want to open or save the file, not try to play it.
That's just one possible solution though.

Re: Laptop question

robert hebert <roberthebert@...>
 

Function key plus insert plus the letter J takes me to the Jaws menu on my
HP laptop. This is a rather awkward manoeuver but does work.
Also, on my HP laptop to unload Jaws, Insert plus f-4 does not work as F-4
is assigned to a specific HP function. However, when insert plus F-4 is
pressed together with the function key you will be able to unload Jaws.
Reassigning the function keys to their standard functions or using a USB
keyboard will provide a return to an earlier format.

Hello folks! I have just purchased an HP laptop computer, and some of
the issues I'm having are quite peculiar. The worst so far is the
inability to use f7 with the insert to bring up a list of links in
JAWS. When I press it, nothing happens. My wife tells me that the F
keys are doubling for something else, like volume up and down and
things like that. How do I work around this?

Panda Cloud anyone?

William Sallander <wsallander@...>
 

I realize that this subject might've been covered before, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer.
Has or does anyone use Panda Cloud with Jaws?
I tried it before when it first came out and found it to be absolutely unusable.
I'm just wondering if there has been any improvement since with the latest version.

IAccessible::get_accHelp

glen walker <glenrwalker@...>
 

I'm helping improve the accessibility of a Flash/Flex application. In ActionScript, you can set an object's accessibilityName and accessibilityDescription so that when you TAB to the object, jaws will read the name, followed by the role of the object (such as 'button' or 'checkbox') followed by the description. That all works fine.

When running a Flash application, similar to html, you can run in Virtual Cursor mode or Conventional Mode (I think those are the right terms) by pressing Insert+Z.

When in Virtual Cursor mode (the default), you can navigate around the application to get a mental model of the layout without actually interacting with the application. Jaws will read the name+role+description as mentioned above.

"foo button"
"foo combobox"
"foo checkbox"

In Conventional Mode, jaws reads the same thing plus it tells you how to interact with the object.

"foo button, to activate press spacebar"
"foo combobox, to change the selection use the arrow keys"
"foo checkbox, not checked, to check press spacebar"

Does anyone know what MSAA property controls what is read for the interaction? I think it's IAccessible::get_accHelp but nothing I've read really confirms that.

Re: Laptop question

Dave, thanks for the help. Maybe you can help me with this. I have tried on several occasions to lower volume on audio, so I can hear JAWS. For example, I tried listening to a baseball game, and lowered the volume on the web-player, but when I did, the computer turned it back up, so I could not hear JAWS very well. Any advice. Seems like the computer is trying to make up for the volume change, but I don't want it to do that.

Hello Mike:

I also have an HP laptop computer.

You will need to have someone with sight go into the CMOS and change the behavior of the function keys from media to standard function keys.

When the behavior of the function keys has been changed from media functions to behave as standard function keys, You can still perform the media functions, by using the FN key in conjunction with the appropriate keys.

For example, if your media function keys are the same as my HP laptop, holding down the FN key and tapping the F9 key several times, will decrease the system volume.

holding down the FN key and tapping the F10 key several times, will increase the system volume.

Holding down the FN key and tapping the F11 key, will mute the system sounds. This key combination is a toggle, so repeat the keystroke combination, to turn system sounds on again.

Hold down the FN key and press F12 for about a second. This toggle key combination, turns on and off the wireless connection.

The FN key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, between the left CTRL and the WINDOWS key, but, you will have to check to make sure this is correct for your particular laptop.

Dave Durber

My client is using a 64bit machine,
The latest version/build of jaws.
When I go into the calendar,
It's set to the day view,
However no matter what I do, I can't arrow to the various days.
With my 32bit machine,
When I go into the calendar, I just right arrow to the various days.
I put the to-do-bar set to off,
I put the reading pane to off,
Day view is selected.
Does anyone have any tricks?

Re: Laptop question

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Actually, this is a good suggestion; however, I still use the laptop layout, whether using the laptop alone or with my docking station at work or at home with the USB plug-in keyboard.
You can still use the insert key on the laptop (or on the USB keyboard) with the laptop layout.
There is really no need ever to go back to the standard layout.
The only drawback I've found is that capslock plus J or insert plus j won't bring up the JAWS menus, but that is no great loss. There are other ways to do that.
In fact, I cannot remember the last time I needed to do that.

If you can, buy a u s b keyboard to use with your lap top. This way you can
use the standard layout for the desk top when using jaws. I hope that this
helps.

Hello folks! I have just purchased an HP laptop computer, and some of the
issues I'm having are quite peculiar. The worst so far is the inability
to use f7 with the insert to bring up a list of links in JAWS. When I
press it, nothing happens. My wife tells me that the F keys are doubling
for something else, like volume up and down and things like that. How do
I work around this?

You probably need to redefine the function keys. Go to the mobility center and change something from media to the other choice. JAWS doesn't like the mobility center, so sighted help would really help. What???

When I went into mobility center and tabbed around, there was a function key button.

Yes, Dave. I am using Windows 7. I went into mobility center, but did not find any keyboard options.

Mike,

Mobility center is Windows+X. But this is for Windows 7 and possibly Vista.
So we're presuming you're using that OS.
