Hi, Tom. That's because the tool for translating web pages is different from the translater used for translating words.

No, some times when you do a search and there are results in another language google will give you an option to translate the page. If I use that button I get the version with the combo boxes otherwise I just get the hard to work with buttons.

Re: Screen rotation.

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Oh yeah, JAWS can care a lot. Sometimes our mainframe app flips, and it's a real mess. Much of what you need to see scrolls off the right-hand side. I think we resolve it through the View screen. In all these years, I've never had a problem with the screen itself, all applications, but I'm familiar with the control-pannel module about which he spoke.

Right, though I've got things set up so I can shut down Jaws and restart it again with no problems, and this only comes up when a sighted person tries to use my screen -- I couldn't care less about the rotation when I use it as Jaws doesn't care about it at all from what I've experienced, and I don't know there's a problem unless a sighted person, who is on hand to make sure it's rotated correctly, is telling me about it. So though it's handy to be able to do this without sighted assistance as one more accessibility issue resolved, it's not something I can imagine comes up without sighted persons involved.

Hey Nicole.

Tim's suggestion gets it done without shutting off JAWS.

Windows + M or D to desktop then take focus off any icons then open
the context menue shift + f10 then to graphic options and to rotate screen.

I can't see the orientation so for me this indicates that I've set it
to "normal" orientation....

Yes, this happens on my non-Dell machine with an Intel graphics

Jaws on, but shutting it off, fixing the problem, and then turning it
right back on seems to resolve the issue.

Hi Greg,
This problem is not unique to Dell laptops; I've run into this issue
with Dell desktop machines that have an Intel graphics adapter. I
think the shortcut that caused the screen rotation is ctrl+alt+right
arrow, and to set it back to normal may be ctrl+alt+up arrow. If
that
doesn't work, put focus on the desktop and make sure that nothing is
selected. Then bring up the context menu with the applications key
or
shift+f10, and look for something related to Intel Graphics. Open
shift+that
submenu and in there you should see an option to reorient the screen.
You may also see something that will disable screen rotation.

Hope that helps.

Tom

Hi all.



From time to time my screen orientation gets rotated 90 degrees.
I
only
know this because my wife happens to see my screen. When it is
brought to
my attention, I then recollect that I have frequent cursor jumping
and
other
minor focus issues. Since they were only annoyances that I
chalked
up to
the idiosyncrasies of JAWS I didn't know to fix the problem.



So, here's a couple questions:



1. What is the shortcut to re-orientate or rotate the screen?

2. Is there any audio cue that can be assigned to indicate
the
screen
has rotated?

Not sure what the shortcut key is that rotates the screen but it
must
be
similar or adjacent to one that I use since this seems to happen
to
me
reasonably frequently.



Thanks.

dropbox set up

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Hello Good folks.



Downloading dropbox onto this 8.1 computer using jfw latest version and
build.



Has anyone encountered the issue I am having, where at the dropbox set up
screen to type in your email address and password, the information is not
accessible to jaws?

I've tried restricting, unrestricting cursors, using the ocr feature, made
sure it's maximized, but each time I must do this, I'm needing sighted
assistance. I grabbed it from ninite.com btw, dropbox that is.





Drives me nuts, because my kids are asleep right now so I have no sighted
assistance; however, there is my dog but once I let her back in the house,
she will go straight to her pillow and will not lift a paw to help the hand
that feeds her.



Happy Monday to all!

Hi all,

Greetings. My name is Tejas. Presently, I am working with an MNC in
the recruitment team. As a part of my job, I have to work on the
online recruitment tool called "Taleo". The Taleo tool is designed
using the Flex screens. Hence, the JAWS is not compatible with it. Can
anyone throw light on this issue?

I use the JAWS version 12.0.1186 and I use the Internet Explorer 8 to
work on the Taleo. Can anyone of you suggest me the JAWS scripts for
Flex? I will be very grateful to you if you provide any solution for
resolving this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Re: lost instructions to make Firefox and Thunderbird work better withJaws

Robert Logue
 

I checked all the settings and found they were not changed from when I went through this process before. I had reset Firefox and thought it would also reset the about:config but it did not appear to.

Thanks again.

Hi, Robert. I am posting the complete instructions here to make Thunderbird and Firefox readable with the JAWS cursor and in dialogue boxes. Previous posts have not included all the instructions.



When using Mozilla Firefox version 4 or newer, reviewing web pages using the JAWS Cursor is problematic. Mozilla is using a new graphical technology in Firefox version 4 and newer which bypasses the offscreen model, (OSM). Since JAWS For Windows depends on the OSM to allow the user to review the screen using the JAWS Cursor, things don't work the same as with older versions of Firefox, (such as version 3.6).



Solution:



1. Launch Mozilla Firefox.

2. Press Control-L to open a new link.

3. Type "about:config" and press Enter.

(All commands to type do not include the quotation marks)

4. If you are presented with a dialog which warns you about the dangers of making changes, Tab to the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button and press Enter.

5. At this point you should be out of Virtual Cursor mode and on a filter Edit Box. If not, turn off Virtual Cursor mode by pressing JAWS Key - z.

6. In the filter Edit Box type "direct2d.disabled".

7. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called "gfx.direct2d.disabled" with a default value of False.

8. Press Enter to toggle this value to True.

9. Press Shift-Tab to get back to the filter Edit Box and type "layers.acceleration.disabled".

10. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called "layers.acceleration.disabled" with a default value of False.

11. Press Enter to toggle this value to True.

12. In the filter Edit Box type "composition.enabled"

13. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled with a value of true

14. Press Enter to toggle this value to False.

15. Press Control-W to close the configuration window.

16. Restart Firefox.



you should now be able to use the JAWS Cursor to review web pages while using Mozilla Firefox version 36.0.1 and newer.

Re: lost instructions to make Firefox and Thunderbird work better withJaws

Robert Logue
 

Thanks Bill and Mike. This needs more attention if there is some conflict or it doesn't work for everyone.

I read the discussion in the link but this is more for screen review mode.
My problem is that Jaws doesn't read the text in edit boxes in some Mozilla dialogs. As I am finding more and more places where this happens in other applications, it is about time I phoned Freedom Scientific to see if there is something wrong with my system. Yes. I've reinstalled Windows 7 home premium 64 and Jaws.

Thanks Bill, for the complete instructions. Would be nice to know what they actually are doing that effects screen readers. Do you know where they are origenally posted?

When using Mozilla Firefox version 4 or newer, reviewing web pages using the JAWS Cursor is problematic. Mozilla is using a new graphical technology in Firefox version 4 and newer which bypasses the offscreen model, (OSM). Since JAWS For Windows depends on the OSM to allow the user to review the screen using the JAWS Cursor, things don't work the same as with older versions of Firefox, (such as version 3.6).



Solution:



1. Launch Mozilla Firefox.

2. Press Control-L to open a new link.

3. Type "about:config" and press Enter.

(All commands to type do not include the quotation marks)

4. If you are presented with a dialog which warns you about the dangers of making changes, Tab to the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button and press Enter.

5. At this point you should be out of Virtual Cursor mode and on a filter Edit Box. If not, turn off Virtual Cursor mode by pressing JAWS Key - z.

6. In the filter Edit Box type "direct2d.disabled".

7. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called "gfx.direct2d.disabled" with a default value of False.

8. Press Enter to toggle this value to True.

9. Press Shift-Tab to get back to the filter Edit Box and type "layers.acceleration.disabled".

10. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called "layers.acceleration.disabled" with a default value of False.

11. Press Enter to toggle this value to True.

12. In the filter Edit Box type "composition.enabled"

13. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled with a value of true

14. Press Enter to toggle this value to False.

15. Press Control-W to close the configuration window.

16. Restart Firefox.



you should now be able to use the JAWS Cursor to review web pages while using Mozilla Firefox version 36.0.1 and newer.

Hi Robert,

These are the changes I & many others have made to make the Jaws cursor work
in Firefox.
Change this value from "true" to "false" in the, about config page:

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled set Boolean true
I use Firefox 34.0 with JAWS 15.0.12085 and the JAWS cursor works quite
well.

See also this discussion:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095971


This is the default setting:

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled set Boolean true

This is what I changed it to:
layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled set Boolean false

With this line of text highlighted, press the application key to open the
context menu & press enter on the toggle option to change its value from
true to false.
Other thing to change:
Version: Any
Category: Firefox
Question: Is there a way to use the JAWS Cursor in Firefox?
Answer: You can use the JAWS Cursor in Firefox after turning off Firefox's
hardware acceleration setting.
1. In Firefox, press ALT+T to open the Tools Menu and then choose Options.
2. From the Advanced options, choose the General tab.
3. Press TAB to move to the Use Hardware Acceleration when Available
checkbox. Press the SPACEBAR to uncheck it, then press ENTER to close the
dialog box.

Take care.

Re: JAWS 16 / Win 8 / Office 2013 frustrations - spell check for a start!

Ann Byrne
 

This is from CathyAnne Murtha's book on Word 2013. Hope it helps.Locating Spelling Errors

JAWS for Windows have streamlined the manner in which documents are spell checked in Microsoft Word.

The ability to use the spelling and error features of JAWS for Windows are dependent upon the spelling and grammar error settings of Word. To insure these are configured properly, follow these steps:
* Open the Office Button (ALT-F)
* Activate the Options button (T)
* DOWN ARROW to "Proofing"
* Press TAB once to access the options on the right side of the display
* Navigate through the options and insure the following two checkboxes are checked:
o Check spelling as you type
o Mark Grammar errors as you type
* Activate the OK button with SPACEBAR to save the changes

Rather than using the spell checking dialog of Word, the screen readers offer a fool-proof manner in which to check the document.

The Navigation Quick Keys of JAWS for Windows allow quick navigation among elements of a Word document. While they are useful throughout Word, I'll address their use to spell check a document.

Toggle the JAWS Navigation Quick Keys with JAWS KEY-Z. Once the Quick Keys are enabled, press M and SHIFT-M to navigate among spelling errors in a Word document.

Focus is placed on the next or previous spelling error. You can repair the error yourself or allow The Microsoft Word application menu to assist you in repairing the error.

To use the application menu, press the WINDOWS APPLICATION KEY (the key to the left of the right CTRL). A list of suggested replacements is displayed. Navigate the list with UP AND DOWN ARROW. Press ENTER on a selection to replace the misspelled word with the replacement.

After spell checking the document, disable the Navigation Quick Keys with JAWS KEY-Z.

Office 2013 on Windows 8, I cannot believe that in 2015 FreedomScientific

Appreciate Microsoft are to be blamed, breaking APIs etc, but surely JAWs

Can't Freedom just include scripts to provide the short-cuts for

For blind users in a professional environment, its more important any aspect

Has anyone got work-arounds or perhaps got a script you could send me to get
something working again that was working perfectly fine over the last 18
years???

Yes, I know we can tab through to get to those options, but we need to
optimise/improve the efficiency of these trivial tasks to stand a chance at
keeping our productivity up in a professional environment.



Also, why again in 2015 do 'pic-list' combo lists in MS Excel still not read
out by JAWS 16?

I'm using VB Forms too to make MS Access DB updates, and was told by my UK
JAWS tech support that hardly anyone uses MS Access in the blind community.
Nonsense surely!

Lack of Forms access verbosity settings might suggest a lack of dev effort
from Freedom in this area too. Selecting from combo lists in these forms
with JAWS running kills MS Access too, 25% CPU consumption. With no JAWS,
there is no performance hit when combo selecting. Again, more basic bugs
surely easy to fix!



So, thought I'd email this list to off load my frustrations at finding long

work in the same way as my sighted colleagues.

auto dialers and Jaws

Hello everyone, I am checking to see if any auto dialers are friendly with Jaws 16? Thanks, Tom Macha


Re: lost instructions to make Firefox and Thunderbird work betterwithJaws

Michael B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Bill,

I installed Firefox 37.0.2 on 2 computers, 1 XP & 1 Win7 Pro, within the
last few days &, by changing the value from true to false on this entry,

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled set Boolean true

either changed the values of the following to true or, the values have been
changed in the later releases of Firefox,

"gfx.direct2d.disabled" with a default value of False.

"layers.acceleration.disabled" with a default value of False.

In both instances the above values were changed to true by either Mozilla in
their new releases or by changing the first about:config entryy in this
post. If this happened by some freak thing, I don't know but, I can only
state what my results were. Others might not have the same results &, it
would not hurt to check the about:config entries you posted to be on the
safe side. I have heard of instances that making these changes in,
about:config, have not worked for some people. Why these steps work for
some but, not for others, I do not have a clue.
Take care.
Mike

Is 1Password for Windows accessible?

John Gurd
 

I see 1Password has recently been released for the Windows platform. I know
this is accessible as a Mac program and as an IOS device. I just downloaded
it for my iPhone and am very impressed. It would be great if I could sync
passwords and logins, etc, with my Windows PC but I am reluctant to buy a
Windows version until I know it will work with Jaws. It seems fewer and
fewer Windows programs are accessible these days. Has anyone here used it
successfully?

footnotes

Ali <alpot77@...>
 

Hi all,
I was just wondering if anyone could shed some light on this problem.
I am reading a large document approx. 700 pages with various formats etc.
This document has quite a few section breaks also. There are also over 1100
footnotes in this document starting from the first section of the document.
When I try to list the footnotes with, windows + ;, then enter on the
footnotes, only first 104 of the 1100 footnotes displayed. For some reason,
I am unable to list rest of the footnotes in the virtual viewer. Please
note, when I am reading the document, I can get to the footnote pain, and
read the footnotes no problem. Does anyone know how I can get jaws to
display all of the footnotes in the virtual viewer?

Using jaws 16xx, windows7 64bit, and office 365.

Thank you
Ali

Yes...Tom, that's got it.

Trick is that when you go to the desk top using shortcut key like windows M

where I found Graphic options and could arrow to rotate to normal.

Certainly would be nice to know when/if it changes...Couldn't find the

Hi Greg,
This problem is not unique to Dell laptops; I've run into this issue with
Dell desktop machines that have an Intel graphics adapter. I think the
shortcut that caused the screen rotation is ctrl+alt+right arrow, and to set

it back to normal may be ctrl+alt+up arrow. If that doesn't work, put focus

on the desktop and make sure that nothing is selected. Then bring up the
context menu with the applications key or shift+f10, and look for something
related to Intel Graphics. Open that submenu and in there you should see an

option to reorient the screen. You may also see something that will disable
screen rotation.

Hope that helps.

Tom

Hi all.



From time to time my screen orientation gets rotated 90 degrees. I only
know this because my wife happens to see my screen. When it is brought to
my attention, I then recollect that I have frequent cursor jumping and
other
minor focus issues. Since they were only annoyances that I chalked up to
the idiosyncrasies of JAWS I didn't know to fix the problem.



So, here's a couple questions:



1. What is the shortcut to re-orientate or rotate the screen?

2. Is there any audio cue that can be assigned to indicate the
screen
has rotated?

Not sure what the shortcut key is that rotates the screen but it must be
similar or adjacent to one that I use since this seems to happen to me
reasonably frequently.



Thanks.

Greg,

It's there, and you just need to look further in the dialog. Perhaps hidden
in a menu tree.

Yes...Tom, that's got it.

Trick is that when you go to the desk top using shortcut key like windows M
ore windows D you have to tap away from focus then open the context menue
where I found Graphic options and could arrow to rotate to normal.

Certainly would be nice to know when/if it changes...Couldn't find the
option to turn off this shortcut.

Hi Greg,
This problem is not unique to Dell laptops; I've run into this issue with
Dell desktop machines that have an Intel graphics adapter. I think the
shortcut that caused the screen rotation is ctrl+alt+right arrow, and to set

it back to normal may be ctrl+alt+up arrow. If that doesn't work, put focus

on the desktop and make sure that nothing is selected. Then bring up the
context menu with the applications key or shift+f10, and look for something
related to Intel Graphics. Open that submenu and in there you should see an

option to reorient the screen. You may also see something that will disable
screen rotation.

Hope that helps.

Tom

Hi all.



From time to time my screen orientation gets rotated 90 degrees. I only
know this because my wife happens to see my screen. When it is brought to
my attention, I then recollect that I have frequent cursor jumping and
other
minor focus issues. Since they were only annoyances that I chalked up to
the idiosyncrasies of JAWS I didn't know to fix the problem.



So, here's a couple questions:



1. What is the shortcut to re-orientate or rotate the screen?

2. Is there any audio cue that can be assigned to indicate the
screen
has rotated?

Not sure what the shortcut key is that rotates the screen but it must be
similar or adjacent to one that I use since this seems to happen to me
reasonably frequently.



Thanks.

Tom,

Yes, you've given the actual cure to the disease, and not just the symptoms.

screen rotation

Greg Nickel
 

Hi all.



I discovered when arrowing around the context menue a feature that will
notify you of any graphic changes you make.



So, if you open the context menue on the desktop by pressing shift F10 when
not focused on an icon you will arrow down to graphic options then arrow to
balloon notifications where you can select enable or disable a notification
that prompts you to accept the changes when you make them to a graphics
setting such as rotating the screen.



Cheers to all for their input on this one.
