Using ZipForms with JAWS

Sylvia Yasa <yasa.sylvia@...>
 

Hi List,

I am an adaptive technology instructor at Blind Industries and
Services of Maryland, and I have a student who works as a realtor. She
manages all her transactions using an online application called
ZipForm "http://www.zipform.com/". If anyone used this application
before, your input is greatly appreciated! It seems that the
application has significant accessibility problems using JAWS 14.
Thanks in advance for your much valued response!
Sylvia


Re: no email body text in outlook express now sorted

Marion Woods <marion_woods38@...>
 

Hi Mike,

All sorted now, I located a copy of OpenBook 8, installed it and it works fine, and found it a lot easier to use than version 9 and of course it solved the problem with Outlook Express.

Once again Mike, many thanks for your help,

Marion

Hi Marion,

I am running XP Pro, Outlook Express with 4 identities, & Openbook 7.02
without any problems but, even when I was testing Openbook 9 I didn't run
into any of the problems you are experiencing. Actually this is the first
time I've heard of anyone having the issues you are experiencing. It would
be greatly appreciated if you would please let us know what is done to fix
the problem. Take care.

Hi Marion,

What version of Openbook are you running? Personally I have never had the
problem you are experiencing using Openbook 7 or 8, didn't care too much for
9. Why don't you call Freedom Scientific tech support & let them figure out
what's happening. Their phone # is: 1-727-803-8600, press prompt, #2.

Or, you can join the Openbook list using the subscription link below & maybe
someone there will have an answer for you:

Take care.

Hi all,

I installed a 30 day trial copy of FS OpenBook, it worked great on my WinXP
PC with Jaws11, however when checking my email accounts I could read all
mail ok but when composing new mail it would not let me enter any body text,
only headers, according to FS it's suitable for use with WinXP, After many
fruitless hours of trying to diagnose the problem I gave up and uninstalled
OpenBook, which put everything back to normal.
It's a shame because the OCR scanning software and other facilities worked
great in OpenBook with Jaws11, it's a good job I tried the trial version
before buying

If anyone knows of a fix before I give up please let me know,

Marion

Re: reading N Y Times articles

Adrian Spratt
 

Perhaps it is the easiest way to read the New York Times, but it may not be
the best. For one thing, the Times provides links within articles that are
often useful. Second, you cannot send a friend a link to an article in the
NFB edition. There are other factors, but they might be more debatable. For
anyone who doesn't read in a strictly linear way and wishes to exchange
views with the outside world, the NFB edition is constrictive. I'm glad both
versions exist, though I find I keep reverting to the NY Times website and
haven't even opened the NFB version for months.

The easiest way to read the New York Times, or any other major newspaper,

trying to access it directly from the paper's web site. All articles on NFB

Newsline are arranged alphabetically by headline within section, and of

Subject: RE: reading N Y Times articles


The NY Times has been "improving" its website and emails. Last week they
reformatted their daily headlines email so that headlines are no longer
marked as headers. Before, I could skip from story to story by pressing 3
for header at level 3. Now I have to press 4 for the reporter's byline,
then
arrow up twice to the actual headline. Still worse, the layout isn't
consistent, and this method sometimes skips over material. I've written to
the Times to ask them to reinstate the header format for headlines. Their
first response was thanks for my opinion. I followed up, and this time got
an assurance that my request had been forwarded to Development.

To address your concern here, I find that the webpages on the website are
no
longer as stable. I can't say I've experienced what you describe because I
automatically go right to the print version. However, it's sometimes
difficult to pin down the print link.

You've probably noticed that sometimes an ad will pop up as a webpage
appears to be opening. The usual solution in this case is to go to the top
of the page and arrow down once. Here there's a link for skipping the ad.
Press enter on this, and the webpage I want stays in place.

You might want to bring your experience to the attention of the Times. As
I
tried to suggest, you might need to be persistent. Past problems with the
newspaper have always been fixed.

I'm using JAWS 14, Win7 and IE9. I find that JAWS 14 handles the Internet
better than previous versions of JAWS.

Hi,
I would invite any one to find a long article on the N Y Times let's say
under health and
Try to read it with JAWS (10 and 12).

The articles all get interrupted by
"flash movie start"
and then the entire page refreshes back to the top.

I have
"suppress all refreshes" checked.

Yes, one can find "print" and the Timeswill
Present the entire article perfectly.

But I want to know why JAWS cannot read the entire article as happens on
other newspaper sites without refreshing back to the beginning.

Thanks to the excellent person who wrote me privately.

Freedom Scientific did not as of now answer my query.

Thanksto all.

Re: reading N Y Times articles

Bill Spiry
 

I use JAWS to read news on the web from time to time but find it is
limiting. The NY Times is paywalled online via my PC but interestingly, it's
not paywalled via mobil access.

If you use an iOS device, an app called "Earl" is another fully accessible
alternative for access to the New York Times and hundreds of other English
language newspapers and periodicals from around the world. The interface is
voice controlled and all the content is read to you using your choice of the
five very high quality TTS voices built into Earl. Just double-tap your
screen, listen for the tone, speak a few straightforward commands and Earl
will read articles you select from nearly 300 newspapers and periodicals,
without ever having to see the screen. Earl works equally well with or
without Voice Over since it uses it's own VUI and TTS system.

Find Earl in the app store at:

The NY Times has been "improving" its website and emails. Last week they
reformatted their daily headlines email so that headlines are no longer
marked as headers. Before, I could skip from story to story by pressing 3
for header at level 3. Now I have to press 4 for the reporter's byline,
then
arrow up twice to the actual headline. Still worse, the layout isn't
consistent, and this method sometimes skips over material. I've written to
the Times to ask them to reinstate the header format for headlines. Their
first response was thanks for my opinion. I followed up, and this time got
an assurance that my request had been forwarded to Development.

To address your concern here, I find that the webpages on the website are
no
longer as stable. I can't say I've experienced what you describe because I
automatically go right to the print version. However, it's sometimes
difficult to pin down the print link.

You've probably noticed that sometimes an ad will pop up as a webpage
appears to be opening. The usual solution in this case is to go to the top
of the page and arrow down once. Here there's a link for skipping the ad.
Press enter on this, and the webpage I want stays in place.

You might want to bring your experience to the attention of the Times. As
I
tried to suggest, you might need to be persistent. Past problems with the
newspaper have always been fixed.

I'm using JAWS 14, Win7 and IE9. I find that JAWS 14 handles the Internet
better than previous versions of JAWS.

Hi,

The articles all get interrupted by

I have

no email body text in outlook express, when OpenBook Instaled

Marion Woods <marion_woods38@...>
 

Hi all,

I installed a 30 day trial copy of FS OpenBook, it worked great on my WinXP PC with Jaws11, however when checking my email accounts I could read all mail ok but when composing new mail it would not let me enter any body text, only headers, according to FS it's suitable for use with WinXP, After many fruitless hours of trying to diagnose the problem I gave up and uninstalled OpenBook, which put everything back to normal.
It's a shame because the OCR scanning software and other facilities worked great in OpenBook with Jaws11, it's a good job I tried the trial version before buying

If anyone knows of a fix before I give up please let me know,

Marion

The easiest way to read the New York Times, or any other major newspaper,
for that matter, is to access it using NFB Newsline Online, rather than
trying to access it directly from the paper's web site. All articles on NFB
Newsline are arranged alphabetically by headline within section, and of
course, there are no annoying pop-ups or flash content to deal with.

JAWS not saying "Star, Star" when typing passwords

Sameer
 

Dear List Members,

I am using JAWS 14 with Internet Explorer 8 & Windows XP as the OS.

I have noticed the following strange behaviour during the past couple of weeks & request suggestions from members about it's cause & solution.

1. Whenever I type passwords online, for example for logging into my email account, JAWS will stay silent. Previously, it used to announce "Star, Star" as I typed the passwords.
2. But if I turn on private browsing in Internet Explorer, JAWS says "Star, Star" when typing passwords on the same website.

This problem does not occur in Firefox.

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards
Mr. Sameer Latey
Mumbai, India

Hello all,

I noticed that a few of you are using Mac. I was curious to know how
are you
all using JAWS on a Mac. I understand that JAWS does not work on OS 10.
Also, I think that MS Office suite developed for Mac is inaccessible
with
Apple's voiceover. If my understanding is correct, How are you all able
to
work on MS Office on a Mac?

I am thinking of buying a Mac, and so am eager to hear from you.
