Re: Notes on Windows 8 and JAWS compatibility

Gerald Levy
 

This sounds like one big mess. If there is no start menu, how do you scroll through your list of installed programs? Suppose I'm having a senior moment, and I just can't remember the name of that word processing program that I installed as an alternative to MS Word. In XP, I would simply go to aAll Programs, and scroll through the list of programs until I landed on Jarte. Ah, that's it! How can you do this in Windows 8? Is there an equivalent to the XP All Programs feature?

Hi folks,
Due to many interests on JAWS 14's performance with Windows 8, I decided to
write some usage notes (mostly in preparation for Win8's release next
Friday):
Test machine specs:
* OS: Windows 8 Pro.
* JAWS version: 14.0.730 Beta 2.

Windows 8 specifics:
* Versions: Windows 8, windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows RT
(run-time). The last one is available for ARM tablets, meaning that JAWS
will not run on it.
* Start menu has been replaced by "start screen" - a combination of previous
start menu's search functionality and home screens of many smartphone
operating systems. Press Windows key to launch start screen. Initially,
you'll be placed at app tiles screen where you can use arrow keys to move
around the screen of apps. Once you start typing, search bar appears so you
can search among apps, files and settings. From within the list of app
tiles, press tab to move to users control where you can press SPACE to open
user specific menu such as signing off and switching users).
* charms bar: on the right side of the screen is a vertical bar known as
"charms bar". Press Windows key+C to open this bar. This area contains five
items (refered to as charms): Start screen (Windows key), Search charm
(shortcut depends on categories), Settings (Windows key+I), Share (Windows
key+H) and Devices (Windows key+K). The Settings charm is used to view
common settings such as network connection name and strength, volume and
power options. It also contains a shortcut for Control Panel housed in a
combo box. The Search charm allows one to search for apps (Windows Key+Q),
files (Windows Key+F) and settings (Windows key+W). The Devices charm allows
one to project to a second screen, and Share charm allows data to be shared
from desktop to other computers.
* From anywhere on Windows 8, press Windows key+D to go to Desktop. Or, from
start screen, navigate the tiles until you hear "desktop" and press ENtER.
* Windows Explorer (now File Explorer) uses ribbon interface.
* IE10: Initially, when you start IE10, you'll use Metro style version of
IE10. To switch to regular IE10, press Windows key+R to open Run, type an
address, press ENTER and use Tools/Options to change to regular interface.
The user interface of IE10 is similar to IE9 except JAWS will not read you
auto-complete suggestions on address bar.
* Power Users menu: on some systems (I assume all), pressing Windows key+X
brings power usrs menu for running admin functions, such as command prompt,
task manager and control panel. This menu houses mobility center as well.
* Windows Mobility Center: since Windows key+X is used for power users menu,
to go to mobility center, from power users menu, press B. Most of the
mobility center's settings are now housed in Settings charm. Consequently,
it is now easier to connect to wireless networks or change volume.
* Shutdown: Since start screen does not have shutdown option, to do this,
press Windows key+I, press tab until you go to "power options", press SPACE
then choose shutdown. By default, the way Windows 8 shuts itself off is
different from that of previous Windows version (for more info on this, I
suggest reading online articles on what's called 'hybrid boot"; I'll explain
this in more detail on Blind Windows 8 list later).

JAWS and Windows 8:
* Within start screen, when you move around app tiles, a sound is heard when
JAWS detects that a tile takes up twice the space of other tiles.
* When searching apps, JAWS reads the first result as you type your text.
* In some applications, when the window is maximized, JAWS does not read
status bar items (could be my computer only, as I'm using a computer that I
bought in 2009).
* While copying/cutting files and when there are conflicts such as files
with same names, JAWS does not read focused buttons.
* JAWS may or may not support metro style apps.
* As far as I can tell, JAWS does not have touch gestures (you may have been
thinking of a free screen reader which does have support for touchscreens
under Win8).

Hope this helps. For anyone who are interested in learning more about
Windows 8, I'd like to suggest subscribing to Blind Windows 8 mailing lists
hosted by Yahoo Groups. Thanks.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Windows 8 with Jaws?

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Listened to the FS Cast. It sounded like there were work-arounds for most of the "issues" with Windows 8.
The FS Cast, however, only touched on Metro Apps, and I remember nothing about supporting gestures for tablets running Windows 8 and, in particular, using Metro Apps.
I heard a podcast from another source implying, at least, some sort of support for gestures.
For those who have tried JAWS with Windows 8, is there any gesture support. I mean gestures like those supported in VoiceOver for the iPhone and iPad.

Are there any users out there who have used Windows 8 with Jaws?
I saw a presentation of a computer that QVC was selling today, that has

It was an HP laptop, but the description of how Windows 8 functions sounded

Just wondered if anyone has had any experience with the new OS yet and how

Heya folks,

I type and select what I need to do then forms mode out of there and
Jaws seems to pop me to the top of the page or similar 1st heading and
then I need to find the edit box or combo box again which is simple
enough though it just gets annoying especially when filling out a lot
of edit boxes.

Any hints or tips I need to change in settings for when I forms mode
out again it keeps me on or near the last things I edited or selected?

Re: Outlook calendar

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Stan:
Actually, control plus the numbers on the top row perform a number of functions:
Control plus 1 = Inbox
Control plus 2 = Calendar
Control plus 3 = Contacts
Control plus 4 = Tasks
Control plus 5 = Notes
I'm not sure after that.
None of these conflicts with any JAWS commands of which I'm aware, at least none I use.

Re: Windows 8 with Jaws?

Angela Delicata <angeladelicata@...>
 

Yes, I'd like to know how it works, something about the menus and if it is
accessible.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I'm testing Windows 8 with JAWS 14 beta. Anything you'd like to know about

Subject: Windows 8 with Jaws?

Hi,

Are there any users out there who have used Windows 8 with Jaws?
I saw a presentation of a computer that QVC was selling today, that has
Windows 8 installed.
It was an HP laptop, but the description of how Windows 8 functions sounded
more visual than Windows 7 is? This is just my opinion, of course.
Just wondered if anyone has had any experience with the new OS yet and how
well it works with Jaws.
Thanks.

Claudia

Re: Spotify Blind 1.0.7 Released

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Uh, ok, so here is what I did.
I installed the program from the first link and from the second link,
grabbed the scrips and installed them for jfw 13.
I launch spotify and it seems to be a bi*** to log in. It says log in with
facebook or something else, I think create an account. I have to use the
jaws cursor a lot.
So am I on the wrong track here?
Thanks.

I slaved all day on this fixing the bugs. Enjoy it. I'm still deciding how
to approach the next items such as playlists and what not.

To get the program, visit the site at:

www.DoItBlind.com/spotify/

Download it:

www.DoItBlind.com/spotify/currentVersion.php

Enjoy!

Haters will hate. Don't let that discourage you brother. :). I've seen your scripts, pretty impressive.

If it helps I appreciate all the work you put it to making these scripts.
Something I learned from making videos on youtube; you're always going
to have people who hate you, and wish you would stop what you are
doing. It's best if you don't reply to people like that, or let it
bother you. If you do reply make sure that what you reply with is a
positive thing. I learned that from a fellow youtuber, and call it
strange if you want but it seems to throw the haters off their game...
at least a little. I've found that advice works for just about
anything, not just youtube. :) It's also something that people often
forget to do... even me from time to time. :)

I don't know who it was, but some dude decided he'd just insult me off list
on my contact page for even posting all these scripts on the list. Did I
come off as annoying or something? I'm just doing this because it's fun and
I wanted to give back to the blind community. He claimed I was a stuck up
person for deciding it was my task to script all these programs. Sadly, I
shake my head and presume he doesn't know the first thing about me.
Probably
an enemy I made?
