If you're not in love with Turbo Tax, you might want to try instead Tax
Acts. Even their CD version (executable download) is accessible with JAWS.
Costs about $20 to do both federal and state taxes with e-filing.

I've used it for several years, and the accessibility has gotten better over
time, right out of the box with JAWS.

Re: Headers and Footers in a word document

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
As previously suggested, you can use insert+f1 to check to see if there are indeed headers and footers, and, if they exist, JAWS should tell you when they are present on any given page. However, there's another way to know for sure, and I've used this technique regularly of late.

1. Go to the top of your document by pressing ctrl+home.
2. Press alt+v, followed by H. This will turn on the header/footer view.
3. At this point, you can use your down arrow to scroll through the headers and footers sequentially, page by page. If need be, you can even edit them if you want to, changing text and formatting as necessary.

When you're finished, press alt+v followed by h again and you'll return to your regular document view. If you've made changes, save as necessary.

Hope this helps.

Tom

If your goal is accessibility, then I would recommend not using headers and

Windows Explorer menu questions

Barbara Corner <bcorner@...>
 

I have a new netbook that has JFW 14 and Windows 7. In Windows Explorer it
isn't reading the menus (ribbons) correctly. It only reads the first letter
i.e. f, e, t etc instead of reading file, edit tools.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I bought my Office 2010 Pro from Best Buy and you are supposed to get a free

Also, in Outlook, is there an easy way to get to the address book so I can

if there is, I didn't find it.
I just now opened up a document with a header on each page, and page numbers
in the footer. I could read the header with the JAWS cursor, but not with
the regular pc cursor. Even with the JAWS cursor, JAWS didn't read the page
number in the footer; if I didn't know there was a header and footer in a
document I wouldn't think to look for it. Indeed, probably there have been
many documents I've read through without realizing there was a header.

When creating documents, JAWS works well in speaking the header and footer
fields, but that isn't the case when reading them. As I say, there might be
a way to create a scheme which would include saying headers and footers; if
there is, I'm sure someone on this list will confirm, but a JAWS user would
have to have their settings configured to do this, and it certainly isn't
the default.
If your goal is accessibility, then I would recommend not using headers and
footers, except perhaps for pagination.

Should I recommend that the creator avoid the use of headers and footers?

Mary, are these documents related to a persons job or just FYI? Are they huge or small? Because yes I've been caught trying to play the guessing game as a totally blind user. If I open a document and have to start JAWS and other Help Commands right from jump street, I close it. BYE BYE

Re: Windows Media Player in Win7 with JAWS

Bob, thanks for this added information. Thanks also for inadvertently making
me aware of David Bailes' post, which didn't reach me. My PC rebooted
overnight, and it seems some messages in the queue didn't download.

With your two posts in mind, can anyone suggest a WMP 12 guide? Or is it
possible to roll back to a workable WMP version on Win7? If yes, how do I go
about it?

Also something to note. The Jaws scripts are for WMP 11 and have not
been updated by FS for WMP 12 even in Jaws 14 latest update!

Not only that. WMP is very buggy crashes a lot and lots of people
complain in forums but Microsoft doesn't have workable fixes.

JAWS 6, 13 and 14. JAWS 6 has the extra CD and the brailled authorization

It depends on the version of jaws you started with so you are likely

(mine is a tri fold but I don't know if people who first buy jaws now
get that or something else), one of which is the authorization disc so
that people who can't see can still perform the authorization. After
that however FreedomScientific only sends out single update discs as

This is the big mystery question. I have encountered things over the
years that have broken my authorizations such that I had to wind up
getting a dongle to solve one annoying problem, such as adding memory
or even adding a driver for a USB device which, when connected,
changes the machine's footprint ID, making JAWS think it's a different
machine. I am now faced with a computer that has as much memory in it
as it's going to get, but with one out of two possible installed
drives. I'll turn on the other drive, which is a BIOS tweak, before
proceeding with the following. I am planning on installing two more
drives which will be attached to a SATA controller card which I will
also be installing. I'm wondering which of these things will break my
authorization, causing me to have to get yet another ILM key, which I
don't want to do if I can avoid that hassle. So, should I just put
everything into the machine that's going to be put into it, then
authorize, or should I authorize first, then install the hardware if
doing that won't change the machine's ID?
