Hi Ted,
I want something that more quietly does its job in the background. I finally
figured out how to turn off some of the nag ads and that seems to help. If I
download a book from NLS it has to check it out. That's just an example. I
guess I'm still getting used to this computer and Windows 7.

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.

I'm currently running it on Windows 7 and it seems to be heading more

software that is free that works well with JAWS?

Hi,

I keep getting items on my IE10 tool bar that I don't want. One is labeled
something like "suggested sites". Also, I often have another item for going
to Facebook (my home page). I can delete these from the tool bar easily
enough but would prefer that they not show up again.

Thanks

Re: locating checked check boxes

hi Artur, this script would come in handy for me also, but when I compile
it, I get an error that states wrong syntax in while statement. when I press
ESC, I am left on the while line. if I press control+i, I don't find any
while choice to choose from. I am using JAWS 14.0.6005 on Windows XP. what's

Hi.

At work, we use a web site that contains a table with at the moment, about
980 check boxes.

The table keeps growing.

Each check box is for a different client.

Each instructor checks the client he/she works with.

I need a way to quickly locate which boxes are currently checked for me.

It is to say the least very time consuming to keep pressing x until I reach
a box that is checked.



Does anyone know of a way to locate which box is checked? I cannot think of
any command to do it.

Perhaps some sort of script?



Thanks

Phil

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.

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: Metro Skype and JAWS

Brent Harding
 

I think it was mostly for the old versions that had the extras manager in. You just wouldn't be able to use that any more. It was an api to control the skype client itself, not GWConnect, and likely not the newer versions.

So what versions of Skype will this effect? Is Skype for desktop
latest version made with this or something different? I'm talking
about the current non-metro version of skype.

Thanks,

Seriously? Fewwwwwwww'w'w'w! I thought the desktop API is what they
came out with in 2010. Does this effect regular skype though? If so,
how does it not effect GwConnect?

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.

I'm currently running it on Windows 7 and it seems to be heading more
towards nag ware. Does anyone have any suggestions of other antivirus
software that is free that works well with JAWS?
