Re: IE and JAWS

Russell Solowoniuk <rsolowoniuk@...>
 

Hi Karoline,

Is this in Windows 8? If so, how are you opening IE? If I open IE from the start area by typing Internet Explorer, it opens but Jaws doesn't work with it. There seems to be no menu bar or anything. I think Windows 8 can open IE in "Metro" view or regular view, not sure if I'm using the correct terms. What I do is press Windows T to open IE from the task bar. Jaws then will work with IE.

Hi



I am not sure what happened. I was using JAWS 14 and IE 10. It was working

about this?

How do I fix it?

Thanks.

Re: Color scheme has changed to Windows 7 Basic

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,

Below desktop themes & selection is explained in a little more detail.

From:
Lauren Simmons
HI all,

While helping Barb learn a bit more about the icons at the top right
hand corner of most application Windows (Minimize Restore Close),
another issue came up. Gene stated he did not have any such icons at
the top right hand corner of his windows. I asked Gene if he had ever
changed the desktop theme on his Windows7 computer. He stated he had
not.

I now feel pretty confident I have solved the mystery of the missing
icons. (Smile).

For any new Windows7 computer users, I strongly, strongly suggest you
consider changing your desktop theme from the default to the Windows
Classic. By making this change, application windows will begin to feel
very much like the older Windows XP windows. I have made this
modification as well as other seasoned Windows7 users problem free. No
need to worry as this change is not permanent, and you can return back
to the Windows7 theme if you feel compelled to do so. When testing my
theory I went from Windows Classic, to the default Windows 7 desktop
theme, and back to the desktop classic theme hassle free.

To determine if you are using the Windows 7 theme simply launch
Notepad and Wordpad. Use the Jaws hotkey to read the top of the window
(Insert + Numpad 1 (End key). If you do not hear "Minimize, Restore,
Close" or any variation of, it is very likely you too are using the
Windows7 Desktop theme.

I have typed up the following information to give you and idea of how
the Windows Classic desktop theme can be of some benefit to you.

The new Windows7 theme is a combination of pictures, colors, and
sounds on your computer. It includes a desktop background, a screen
saver, a
window border color, and a sound scheme. Some Windows7 customized
themes can include their own desktop
icons and mouse pointers. A drawback of these themes to vision
impaired and blind computer users is that these visually stimulating
themes take up resources and do not add the same benefits as they
would to sighted Windows7 users. The following tutorial will help you
make changes that allow for Windows7 to take on the appearance and
sounds of the familiar Windows XP classic theme. As an added benefit,
these changes will also take the desktop out of the Alt + Tab
sequence. We will need to go to the Personalization Dialogue box to
make our change from the default Windows7 theme to the classic Windows
theme.

A little warning is in order. The tutorial below may make changes to
your current Windows sound scheme. If you would like to continue using
your current sound scheme with all its familiar sounds, make sure to
save it or at the very least make a note of its name so you can
restore it after the modifications below are made. Here's how to
identify your current sound scheme and how to restore it in the event
of any mishaps.

*Identifying Your Current Sound Scheme
1. Go to the Start menu search box and enter the following: Change
system sounds.
2. You will land on the sound scheme you are currently using. Make a
note of this particular sound scheme.

*Restoring a Sound Scheme
1. If your sound scheme is changed by the steps in the tutorial below,
go to the Start menu search box and enter the following: Change system
sounds.
2. You will land on a combo box consisting of all of the sound schemes
on your computer.
3. Arrow up or down to select your previous sound scheme.
4. This step is very important. Press Shift + Tab twice or until you
get to "Apply" and hit enter.
5. Press Shift + tab to Ok and hit enter.
6. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2 to verify your sound scheme is
indeed the currently running sound scheme.

*To Configure the Windows Classic Theme

1. Press the windows key to open the Start menu search box, type the
following words and hit enter: Change the theme. Note: you can also
simply type the word Theme.
2. You will land directly on the Personalization dialogue box's Theme
Gallery.
3. Press down arrow until you get to an item called Windows7 Basic.
Right arrow to Windows Classic. Hit the enter key to execute the
desired change.
4. Wait a few seconds or until you hear an audio sound effect
confirming the completion of this process. I would wait another 2
minutes or so as your computer is making lots of changes and you want
to allow lots of time for the process to complete.
5. To confirm the changes have been made correctly repeat steps 1 and
2. When you land on the Theme Gallery make sure it is indeed set to
Windows Classic.
6. Press alt F4 to close the Personalization dialogue box.
LS


Take care.
Mike

Now. I've never heard my system announce that the theme was changed or

XP has an option to delete compressed files, and I'd read that it was wise to keep this option unchecked. It doesn't show up on my Win7, 64-bit machine.

If you have any doubts about files to delete from the Win7 list, you obviously shouldn't check them off. For example, if you want to maintain a record of errors, you might want to keep the last options unchecked. Right now, my system is going strong, so I'm deleting the lot.

I don't use thunderbird and I hesitate to flood this list with idle
speculation, but I wonder if the top and bottom commands that you and Mike
refer to can be made more JAWS-appropriate in Win7 by tweaking the view
menu. For example, insert-3 won't read the status line in many cases unless
the status bar is checked in the view menu.

Carlson constantly preaches avoidance of FS's virtual ribbon, a view I

I'm wondering about the keystrokes you mention. Insert-3 gives me the
status line, as in XP, while insert-1 gives me the top line of the current
window. I admit I don't remember using insert-1 in XP, but the insert-number
row 1 key describer seems to say what you want it to. In the case of this
email, a press of insert-numpad 1 says the subject line.

As I was setting up defaults in Win7, Office 2010 and other applications,
I noticed a tiny number of differences in what I could expect from Win7
compared to XP. I don't remember what they were, but they seemed minor at
the time, and so far I haven't felt hampered.

This isn't to advocate one theme over the other, even though I do believe
it's best to do things as much as possible the way the rest of the world
does, but only to report my experience.

why FS recommends the Widows 7 Basic theme? I prefer the Classic theme
because the way I can read the top & bottom lines of windows with the

I thought that was what FS tech support told me.

If it isn't, what do you use?

I've been googling, and the remedies, if that's the word, include turning

Can anyone explain what has happened and, if it's a problem, how do I fix

Crystal,

When you say you're baffled by the open dialog in MS Word, are you talking about how annoying it can be to find a document to open? That frustrated me, too.

For me, the solution is to press control-o for open, then shift-tab twice. This brings me into the folder where I keep my many subfolders of documents. I understand that MS word's default for storing documents is in the documents folder, formerly My documents. If that's where you have your files, maybe this would work.

If I've missed the point, I hope you'll post again. It's critical that finding and opening documents not be a stumbling block.

The only thing that has saved my sanity with Windows 7 has been the search box in the Start Menu.

I made the assumption, but only an assumption, that FS is encouraging us to view the Win7 interface the way every other user does, just as Dave Carlson constantly preaches avoidance of FS's virtual ribbon, a view I share.

I'm wondering about the keystrokes you mention. Insert-3 gives me the status line, as in XP, while insert-1 gives me the top line of the current window. I admit I don't remember using insert-1 in XP, but the insert-number row 1 key describer seems to say what you want it to. In the case of this email, a press of insert-numpad 1 says the subject line.

As I was setting up defaults in Win7, Office 2010 and other applications, I noticed a tiny number of differences in what I could expect from Win7 compared to XP. I don't remember what they were, but they seemed minor at the time, and so far I haven't felt hampered.

This isn't to advocate one theme over the other, even though I do believe it's best to do things as much as possible the way the rest of the world does, but only to report my experience.

"JAWS is designed to work with Windows 7 right out of the box using the
Windows 7 basic theme.
We no longer have a sheet of display settings as in Windows XP.

To set the theme to Windows 7 basic:

1. Press the start menu key.
2. In the search box, type theme and press enter.
3. Down arrow to Windows 7 basic and press enter. As the theme changes, you
should hear an indicator.

If you continue to have difficulty, please call our support hotline at

Now. I've never heard my system announce that the theme was changed or have
it reset. So, I know this is a different issue.

Re: Color scheme has changed to Windows 7 Basic

Robert Logue <bobcat11@...>
 

Here is the text of a message I got from FS support just a while ago.

"JAWS is designed to work with Windows 7 right out of the box using the Windows 7 basic theme.
We no longer have a sheet of display settings as in Windows XP.

To set the theme to Windows 7 basic:

1. Press the start menu key.
2. In the search box, type theme and press enter.
3. Down arrow to Windows 7 basic and press enter. As the theme changes, you should hear an indicator.

If you continue to have difficulty, please call our support hotline at 727-803-8600. We will assist further over the phone."

Now. I've never heard my system announce that the theme was changed or have it reset. So, I know this is a different issue.

Yes, you have it right.

Yes, the shift tab twice does bring up the files.

For the life of me, I can not figure out what the columns part of that dialog is supposed to do.

Crystal,

When you say you're baffled by the open dialog in MS Word, are you talking about how annoying it can be to find a document to open? That frustrated me, too.

For me, the solution is to press control-o for open, then shift-tab twice. This brings me into the folder where I keep my many subfolders of documents. I understand that MS word's default for storing documents is in the documents folder, formerly My documents. If that's where you have your files, maybe this would work.

If I've missed the point, I hope you'll post again. It's critical that finding and opening documents not be a stumbling block.

Re: Color scheme has changed to Windows 7 Basic

Adrian,

Yes, I've done that long ago -- so long ago I've forgotten how I did it.
However I presumed that Ted, being new to Windows 7 may not yet have
modified his setups and so be confronted with the default layout
matrix-style.

Good that you passed along the tip, as I didn't have it.

Dave,

You can set the control panel for first-letter navigation. I believe this is
considered part of the classic theme, but it doesn't seem to convert the
entire system to classic.

Here are the instructions that David Whitehead posted:

Once in the CTRL panel, navigate to search with CTRL E, tab once until you
hear category button and press spacebar. Once the context menu is up arrow
up or down and enter on large icons or small icons. Then you can use letter
navigation to get to different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing
around.

Once you're in Control Panel, the default layout is now a matrix, instead of
a list. So be prepared to move across, as well as down.

Also some of the names have changed. Add/Remove Programs is now Programs and
Features. There's some good PodCasts on the site


www.blindcooltech.com

that talk specifically to using Windows 7 with JAWS. I highly recommend
them, especially those by Neal Ewers.

Mike,

I made the assumption, but only an assumption, that FS is encouraging us to
view the Win7 interface the way every other user does, just as Dave Carlson
constantly preaches avoidance of FS's virtual ribbon, a view I share.

I'm wondering about the keystrokes you mention. Insert-3 gives me the status
line, as in XP, while insert-1 gives me the top line of the current window.
I admit I don't remember using insert-1 in XP, but the insert-number row 1
key describer seems to say what you want it to. In the case of this email, a
press of insert-numpad 1 says the subject line.

As I was setting up defaults in Win7, Office 2010 and other applications, I
noticed a tiny number of differences in what I could expect from Win7
compared to XP. I don't remember what they were, but they seemed minor at
the time, and so far I haven't felt hampered.

This isn't to advocate one theme over the other, even though I do believe
it's best to do things as much as possible the way the rest of the world
does, but only to report my experience.

Hi Crystal & Adrian,

Are we talking about Themes or View settings when referring to Windows 7
Basic & Windows Classic? I'm assuming Themes but, do either of you recall
why FS recommends the Widows 7 Basic theme? I prefer the Classic theme
because the way I can read the top & bottom lines of windows with the
keystrokes, Insert + page down / numpad 3or Insert + End / numpad 1. If
anyone can explain why the Widows 7 Basic theme is preferred I would like to
know. Thank you all very much.

Take care.

DBA, SYBASE Database, iSQL and JAWS

Does anyone have suggestions on how best to be a practicing DBA in the Sybase database environment?

I am migrating from being an Oracle DBA into also being a Sybase DBA.

From my reading thus far, it seems that the iSQL client is a command-line based interface; how well does it work with JAWS? And any suggestions for improved usability?
