Re: notebook, netbooks etc

Dave...
 

Jim,

Regardless of brand, try to get one with a separate number keypad, to make
using JAWS easier, and to facilitate switching between a full-size keyboard
and your laptop. I have a Dell Latitude E-series with the 15-inch monitor,
which gives ample space for that separate numeric keypad.

Hi, Mario. I use a different approach when getting audio from YouTube. I use a website, and download the resulting file. The link is below.

does anyone use FMVD? I have tried in the past months to grab mp3s of youtube videos and have got them, but there's no progress announcement, and some of the controls arent spoken, so there's "button"s and "blank"s. are there any JAWS scripts to make this program more useable, or a setting to change to make it more accessible? or a program that's more screen reader friendly?

Re: Reading long documents - Two questions on voices

Adrian Spratt
 

The hybrid solution for me is to go paragraph by paragraph with control-down arrow. It usually enables me to absorb a manageable amount of information and keeps me relatively anchored. The JAWS cursor stays at the start of the paragraph, so finding a word or phrase can take a moment, but it's a minor inconvenience when reading long text.

With material I really need to understand and that I might need to
take notes for I simply don't use say all. I will instead use line by
navigation for that sort of reading. It is way slower than say all
but I find that with say all the programs idea of cursor position gets
separated from where jaws has read to so that if I interrupt speech I
then have to work to find the spot that I was just listening to. With
line by line navigation that simply isn't a problem.

Re: jaws and solid state drives

They can be internal or external, but serve the most benefit as your primary internal boot device. This is the most common configuration. On a laptop, you would normally want an internal solid state drive, with an external traditional hard drive for data. I hope this helps.

Hi all, I tried pressing Windows key +R and typed in about:blank

for me? Also, someone said to press ctrl + L in IE.
CTRL + L is the command you use in Firefox to type in an address. In ff,
instead of CTRL + O, it is CTRL + L. As far as I know, CTRL + L is no good
in IE.

What's new in this release:



Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2339 (April 2015)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16
release on April 9, 2015, and the April 29, 2015 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.

JAWS
.For customers who use JAWS 16 and MAGic 13 together, we resolved an
issue that was discovered in the previous update where MAGic's Mouse
Echo feature was not working as expected when JAWS 16 was running.
.Worked with Smarter Balance Testing group in order to make some
adjustments in how JAWS is working with the tests being conducted in
many of the schools throughout the US.
.In addition to detecting math that is rendered using MathJax in
Internet Explorer, JAWS now detects Math content that is directly
included in the HTML of a web page in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
.The contents of the Math Viewer are now displayed visually on the screen.
The Math Viewer is accessed by pressing ENTER when JAWS encounters
math content on a web page. As the equation is navigated using the
ARROW keys, each expression or partial expression is highlighted so a
sighted assistant can easily track visually, what JAWS is speaking.
.Based on customer feedback, JAWS is now much more responsive when
reading long and complex mathematical expressions rendered by MathJax.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not recognizing math content
in Internet Explorer on Wikipedia when the Wikipedia user account was
set to render math using MathJax.
.Improved how JAWS pronounces various mathematical functions so they
are spoken using more natural language.
.The Technology News from CNET Research It lookup source now works as
it did in JAWS 15, displaying as many as 20 articles.
.If both JAWS and MAGic are running, resolved an issue where pressing
the Text Viewer toggle key on the MAGic Keyboard was not working.
.Resolved reported issues using the Find feature (CTRL+F) in FSReader.
.A customer reported that if focus was in a Windows security dialog
and speech was off, braille was not working as expected and JAWS was
creating several untitled voice profiles. This is now fixed.

Microsoft Excel
.When focused in the Font edit combo box, addressed a reported issue
where the location of the cursor was not being shown in braille.
.Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the list of
column headers in the Sort dialog box.
.Addressed an issue where information was not being displayed
correctly in braille in certain spreadsheets when the braille mode was
set to Current Row.
.Addressed a reported issue with suggestions in the spell checker not
being read as expected.

Microsoft Internet Explorer
.If you are inside an application region on a web page in both
Internet Explorer and Firefox, it is now necessary to press the PC
cursor command (NUM PAD PLUS) twice quickly to turn off Forms mode and
return to the Virtual PC cursor. This change was made to keep users
from inadvertently leaving Forms mode while interacting with controls
inside application regions which require Forms mode remain active and
is similar to having to press the PC cursor command twice quickly to
turn
off the Touch cursor.
.Resolved issues with JAWS reading links and other content on web
pages marked as hidden and not meant to be read by screen readers.
.Resolved an issue where changes to the Graphical Links setting were
not being saved when configured through the Personalized Web Settings
group in Quick Settings.

Microsoft Outlook
.When navigating the tree view of folders in Outlook 2010, resolved an
issue where the number of unread messages in the selected folder was
not being announced automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue with the last message in an Outlook 2013 folder
being announced and shown in braille even after deleting the message.
.Addressed a customer reported issue with the keystrokes to read
header information not working as expected in Calendar appointments.
These keystrokes include ALT+1 for the From field, ALT+2 for the Sent
field, ALT+3 for the To field, and so on.
.Resolved a reported issue where the number of unread messages in the
selected folder was not being shown in braille in the Go to Folder
dialog box.

Microsoft Word
.Resolved issues with JAWS not reading as expected in Word 2013 when
using
CTRL+UP or DOWN ARROW to read by paragraph, ALT+UP or DOWN ARROW to
CTRL+read by
sentence, and ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys to navigate in tables.
.If the fields in a Word form contain F1 help, resolved an issue where
JAWS would speak the entire prompt for the current form field every
time a character was typed. This only occurred in Word 2013.
.JAWS will now read as expected when encountering an Excel spreadsheet
embedded in a Word document.
.Resolved an issue with JAWS not spelling the selected item in the
Suggestions list in the Word 2013 Proofing pane. The INSERT+F7 command
to read and spell the current suggestion now also works as expected
when focused in the list of suggestions.
.Resolved an issue reported by customers in Spain using Word 2007
where search results were not being spoken automatically by JAWS.
.Resolved an issue where the message indicating that a document
contains headers or footers was not being shown in braille.

Mozilla Firefox
.Improved JAWS detection of headings that are inside table captions.
.Addressed a situation where an ARIA region on a web page could appear
blank after a page update.
.Addressed an issue with JAWS not detecting changes in the language on
combo boxes.
.In response to a customer, pressing INSERT+F in Firefox to receive
font information will now indicate web loaded fonts.

WordPad
.Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not reading the table
of contents section of an RTF file opened in WordPad.
.A customer reported an issue with JAWS not reading web addresses in
WordPad. This is now resolved.

Take care.

Re: Accessibility of Bit Defender

Maybe there is a trial version of the software? Antivirus software usually have a free trial for a month. That should be enough to check the accessibility of the software.

on it a few years ago when they changed their formatting and went largely to
some type of cloud based format that Jaws has difficulty seeing. And now
that I have for all practical purposes lost most of my vision have not been
using it for years.

Accessibility of Bit Defender

Ariel
 

Greetings,
I am wondering if anyone here is using Bit Defender successfully with JAWS? I am thinking about buying it as it seems to be the better antivirus, but I am hesitant to get it as I do not know the status of this antivirus's accessibility. Any info will be greatly appreciate it. Thanks,
Ariel
