Re: Metro Skype and JAWS

Brent Harding
 

I don't think this affects GW Connect, since this API they are retiring is old from the Skype Extras days. You could use that or the regular non-metro version. I've read that the apps in metro are a mixed bag for accessibility, more so than desktop apps.

Hi,

I heard news from some sites that skype will be retiring it's desktop
API in September and totally closing it at the end of 2013. For this
reason, I am asking, does JAWS work with the metro skype for windows
8?

If not, is there a way it could be accessible?

Thanks,

Brandon

Re: concrete examples for needing java access bridge

Cynthia Bruce
 

Hi, I absolutely can. As a doctoral student, and in the university environment in general, we often use virtual classrooms such as Blackboard Collaborate. Without the access bridge it is completely inaccessible. Unfortunately, I haven't found having the access bridge entirely reliable. It will work for a while and then some of the program files seem to disappear requiring another manual install of the files.

Hi,



Can anyone give me real-world examples where having or not having java
access bridge makes a difference - using JFW 14 64-bit.

Thanks.

Re: AVG

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

No kidding? I went back to it late last year, and, aside from having a database the size of a Manhattan phone book, I find no fault with it. What does it do? Security Essentials, on the other hand, about which this list raves, crippled my machine completely, and I had to have help getting it off. One never can tell.

Hi Rick,
Check.that both programs you are using have the window maximized. You can do
this by using the shortcut key ALT + SPACE then type the leter X when you
have the window open.
If your windows are maximized and you still have that problem, check the
field properties in both programs and have the values changed to a greater
number. Contact me off list if you are not sure how to proceed.

Hi Judith,

Yes, I have this program. Alt-control-W is still the hot key. Remember to select the word first. I have it running Windows 8 64 bit and Jaws 14. It is working well.

Does anyone have word web on their computer? Word Web is a thesaurus that
has a free version that I downloaded. The keystroke used to be
alt/control/w. What is it now? Best, Judith

I believe so. However, you need to turn that feature on the inside
Microsoft word for it to work that way. Look under tools and options and
then look for spelling and grammar and there should be a check box that
applies to that.

Re: read column titles

Jean <jemenzies@...>
 

Russell,

I did contact the Rock My Run people and explained the problem. They said that they werent aware that their site had accessibility problems, and thanked me for letting them know. Then they said they were a small outfit with not many resources, but would try and fix the problem. I have no idea what all that really means. No improvement yet. But I'm mullified to know that you couldn't find the download either. lol. They have an app for the iPhone that is at least usable. Still not the same as accessing the downloads, but the app does work. I might be wrong, but I'm thinking you can stream any playlist on the app. I haven't spent a lot of time with it, though, as it is a bit tedious to sort.

I'm glad that worked for you! I also registered for a Rock My Run account to see if I could figure out how to find the download button for the free playlist, but, didn't have any luck. Did you find anything out about that yet?

Take care.

Russell,

Thanks. That's exactly what I was trying to figure out. It worked.

Hi Jean,

I'm not sure if the keystroke to set the row containing the column headings has changed in Excel 2013, but, give this a try… it works in Excel 2010 using Jaws 14…

1. Move the cursor to the row containing the column headings.
2. Press Insert, Alt, CTRL, C. This should set that row as the row containing column titles, and, Jaws should read these titles as you move from column to column.

I know, the keystroke is a bit tricky to perform, but, it can be done! :)

Good luck.

How do I get Jaws to read column titles as I tab across rows? I don’t understand the Jaws descriptions of the reading options. It seemed much simpler in earlier versions of Jaws, but I can’t get it to work now. What do I need to define or set?

Re: Classic menus

David,

Thanks for your thoughts. Not worth it then I'm thinking. I'll stick with the regular ribbons then.

Jean,

I've used an add-on classic menu and was not happy with it. It is similar to
the way that the virtual ribbon works as delivered from FS.

It has the look/feel of the classic menus, but the first-letter navigation
does not work, and if I recall, many of the Alt+letter combinations do not
work, either.

I considered it a crutch, and just went back to learning to use the ribbons
as delivered by Microsoft.
