hi all, how can I get JAWS to read the HTML titles of the various apps
offered by Ninite? I tried the regular and accessible sites but still cannot

reveal the titles which supposedly includes their version numbers.

Re: Amazon.com - payments

Mario,
I'm using JAWS 14 as well. I do sometimes use the site for screen readers and mobile users, and it works pretty well. I just don't see a straightforward way to add a credit card on that site. I did take a look at One Click Settings on the site, and you can add a card there, and they even still have a combo box for selecting month and year. I don't use One Click Ordering, but maybe if I added a card there, it would still show up for me to choose in my regular orders. Since I was able to add a card by the method I gave in a previous post, I won't try the One Click approach.

Re: Amazon.com - payments

Gary King
 

Peter,
I had that very problem with adding a card on Amazon this morning. I think the web site developers at Amazon stay up nights trying to think up new web site controls to frustrate screen reader users. Every other site I have dealt with used a combo box to pick the month and year, and so did Amazon until now. They changed to Menu Buttons on the add credit card page. They still have combo boxes on other pages though.

What I got when I activated the Menu Button for the month while in Virtual Cursor Mode was a list of links corresponding to the months of the year. No matter how I tried to activate the correct link, and I tried them all, the Menu Button still displayed the same month.

As a last resort, I turned off Virtual Cursor Mode with JAWS Key z and activated the Button Menu again. This time I got my months in a list box. I selected the correct month, pressed Enter and was relieved to see that the correct month was now displayed in the Menu Button. I then reactivated Virtual Cursor Mode with JAWS Key z and finished the process without difficulty. Hope this method works for you.

By the way, I'm still using the last build of JAWS 14. I was wondering if JAWS 15 would have done better. Guess not!

Subject: A Genuine Bug

Before I submit the following to Freedom Scientific, I thought I would confirm, with this esteemed group, what I think, at least, is a bug in JAWS 15.

I've been genuinely satisfied with JAWS 15, and it has a couple of advantages over JAWS 14 that are particularly useful to me.

Here, however, is the problem, though I admit it is not a big one.

I have confirmed this in both Windows 8 and Windows 7. I have found this in at least the last 3 versions of Internet Explorer.
Not sure if it exists in FireFox. I rarely use FireFox because I need to use a document management system that only half works in FireFox.

Anyway, here is the problem:

When in IE, if I press Jaws Key plus F-5 I should get a list of form fields in a kind of dialog box. Using first letter navigation, I can hit the field I'm looking for right away. If I hit enter on the name of that field in the Jaws-created dialog box, I should be taken to that form field. In Jaws 14, that seemed to work without flaw. In Jaws 15 it too seems to work when, at the time of pressing Jaws key plus F-5, one is sitting on a radio button, a check box, or a combo box. If, however, one is sitting on an edit field, it doesn't work. The dialog box appears, and I can navigate to the desired name in that dialog box, but when I activate it (by hitting ENTER or hitting tab and space bar) the dialog box disappears, and I'm left in the same edit field as when I pressed the form field command (Jaws key plus F-5).

That, therefore, makes the exercise useless. The obvious work-around is simply to make sure I'm not on an edit field when I press Jaws Key plus F-5.
That, however, as I hope you agree, is less than elegant. <SMILE>

Trading software

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

Hi listers,

Just wondering if anyone has discovered any stock trading software that is functional with JAWS.

I've looked at a few such as Ninja Trader and various brokerages web-sites and have concluded that most mainstream solutions are less than optimal for a blind user.

I'd also be curious to know if anyone has ever tackled charts or attempted a custom tactile chart-plotting application.

Thanks

Ben

Ted,

I thought that pressing Enter on a link in the list was the same as tabbing to the activate link button. What is the distinction, if I'm wrong?

Before I submit the following to Freedom Scientific, I thought I would
confirm, with this esteemed group, what I think, at least, is a bug in
JAWS 15.

I've been genuinely satisfied with JAWS 15, and it has a couple of
advantages over JAWS 14 that are particularly useful to me.

Here, however, is the problem, though I admit it is not a big one.

I have confirmed this in both Windows 8 and Windows 7. I have found
this in at least the last 3 versions of Internet Explorer.
Not sure if it exists in FireFox. I rarely use FireFox because I need
to use a document management system that only half works in FireFox.

Anyway, here is the problem:

When in IE, if I press Jaws Key plus F-5 I should get a list of form
fields in a kind of dialog box. Using first letter navigation, I can
hit the field I'm looking for right away. If I hit enter on the name
of that field in the Jaws-created dialog box, I should be taken to
that form field. In Jaws 14, that seemed to work without flaw. In
Jaws 15 it too seems to work when, at the time of pressing Jaws key
plus F-5, one is sitting on a radio button, a check box, or a combo
box. If, however, one is sitting on an edit field, it doesn't work.
The dialog box appears, and I can navigate to the desired name in that
dialog box, but when I activate it (by hitting ENTER or hitting tab
and space bar) the dialog box disappears, and I'm left in the same
edit field as when I pressed the form field command (Jaws key plus F-5).

That, therefore, makes the exercise useless. The obvious work-around
is simply to make sure I'm not on an edit field when I press Jaws Key
plus F-5.
That, however, as I hope you agree, is less than elegant. <SMILE>

Re: Winamp Alternative

Michael Ritter <blindleben@...>
 

I'm currently using the simple playlist with tabs layout, but several of the layouts are well usable with a screenreader.

As for addins, the main one for me is the FLV decoder. If you're curious what else there is, take a peek:
http://www.foobar2000.org/components

not sure what features WinAmp has, but I like Foobar. If you choose the

I have had this problem. Running Jaws 15 under Windows 7. In fact I
often come across links that Will not activate when pressing enter. I
can usually get them to go with the Jaws cursor, although the Route
Jaws to PC usually doesn't work very well. Tom

Just tried this out on IE 11 on a Win7 machine running JFW 15 Pro. The
command seems to work as intended. I exicuted this Jaws command while on
edit fields, buttons, combo boxes and checkboxes and every time I selected
a different form field be with the the spacebar or enter button, I was
taken to that spot. I tried it from different edit fields on different
webpages and nothing buggy happened.

Subject: A Genuine Bug

Before I submit the following to Freedom Scientific, I thought I would
confirm, with this esteemed group, what I think, at least, is a bug in
JAWS 15.

I've been genuinely satisfied with JAWS 15, and it has a couple of
advantages over JAWS 14 that are particularly useful to me.

Here, however, is the problem, though I admit it is not a big one.

I have confirmed this in both Windows 8 and Windows 7. I have found this
in at least the last 3 versions of Internet Explorer.
Not sure if it exists in FireFox. I rarely use FireFox because I need to
use a document management system that only half works in FireFox.

Anyway, here is the problem:

When in IE, if I press Jaws Key plus F-5 I should get a list of form
fields in a kind of dialog box. Using first letter navigation, I can hit
the field I'm looking for right away. If I hit enter on the name of that
field in the Jaws-created dialog box, I should be taken to that form
field. In Jaws 14, that seemed to work without flaw. In Jaws 15 it too
seems to work when, at the time of pressing Jaws key plus F-5, one is
sitting on a radio button, a check box, or a combo box. If, however, one
is sitting on an edit field, it doesn't work. The dialog box appears, and
I can navigate to the desired name in that dialog box, but when I activate
it (by hitting ENTER or hitting tab and space bar) the dialog box
disappears, and I'm left in the same edit field as when I pressed the form
field command (Jaws key plus F-5).

That, therefore, makes the exercise useless. The obvious work-around is
simply to make sure I'm not on an edit field when I press Jaws Key plus
F-5.
That, however, as I hope you agree, is less than elegant. <SMILE>

Re: A Genuine Bug

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

You're supposed to be right, Dave; that's what I always thought too. Trouble is, with troublesome apps, such as our beloved Ice, you need all the help you can get. Maybe it's psychological; shoot, I'd try a rabbit's foot, if I thought it would help.

Ted,

I thought that pressing Enter on a link in the list was the same as tabbing to the activate link button. What is the distinction, if I'm wrong?

When in a links list, you can either enter on the desired link, tab over and
enter on go to link, or tab over again and enter on activate link--just a
little extra incentive, you might say. I guess JAWS has had it around for
a long time, but only recently have I discovered its utility.
