Does Kindle Work Well With JAWS?

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:



I am considering trying to purchase an e-book in Kindle edition from Amazon.
I have downloaded the Kindle ap, but first I need to sign in and register
it. But first, I need to know from somebody if it has ever worked well with
JAWS. I am using JAWS 16. Have any of you out there been able to use the
Kindle ap and read an e-book using JAWS? If so, how well has JAWS worked
for you. Would any of you recommend using Kindle with JAWS?



Rick Miller

Copying from SD card to PC.

Shane clark
 

Its been so long since I've done this, could someone please explain the
steps in doing this? I'm sure its as simple as I remember, I just need a
refresher as to where to go for what, if that makes sense. I'll be using an
HP computer with Vista and Jaws 11.
Thanks in advance, Shane.Hi listers,
So I need to copy some music and other stuff from my SD card to my PC, and
then from the computer to my phone.

Re: Can an Apple USB Disc Drive be used on a Windows laptop?

Dave...
 

I would just give it a try. If after you plug it in it ask you if you want to format the drive, then of course disconnect it.

I think I know the answer is a No, but wanted to check.

I'm in need of using a USB Disc Drive on my laptop for a short while, and the only one I have access to is one my wife uses for her Mac. It is an Apple USB Disc Drive.

Is there any chance this would work on a Windows machine? I'm hesitant to just try it in case either implodes when hooked up!

Thanks, Keith

Re: Can an Apple USB Disc Drive be used on a Windows laptop?

Matthew Bullis
 

In researching this very thing on a drive called the Superdrive, it can be done, but you need to download drivers for the disc drive. Then after install and reboot, the drive should show up in Windows Explorer.

envelopes in word 2013

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

What luck do folks here have with addressing an envelope using word 2013.



I do alt m followed by e and it places me in an edit field but jaws does not
state what the edit field is. Also, when I tab, nothing.

Re: using 2 sound cardss

Soronel Haetir
 

No, drivers should not get uninstalled without specific user action.
All that might happen is that the operating system will be set to use
the new sound card as the default audio output but the old one should
still be there.

For example, when I was heavily into using virtual machines I
sometimes had two or even three USB headsets to the box, with one
dedicated to main system sound and the others each carrying audio for
a specific virtual machine. This in addition to speakers plugged in to
the on-board audio that I used for music. and the like.

all purposes but that shouldn't matter for what you are talking about.

If both were enabled before the re-install I don't see why the repair
shop would have changed that at all.

Re: JAWS Developer Tools or Developer Resources for C# WFP XAML

Thanks for the reply.

Ill browse around that site.

Seems like the Windows SDK has quite a few tools that could be useful, I'll give it a try.

I know that http://msdn.microsoft.com/library has a great deal of

huge.

I do know there is
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc165614%28v=vs.100%29.aspx

Also, if you are willing to install or already have the windows SDK it
includes a tool called Visual UIA Verifier that does an excellent job
of letting you know what information your program actually exposes to
accessibility programs like jaws. In most cases simply making the
information is enough and jaws will do the rest from there.

I haven't been able to find many resources on making applications JAWS

Under the WFP XAML API I have been mostly interfacing with the
AutomationProperties class to make different objects readable, etc.

For the most part it has been working well.

Does anyone have any documentation or links to any good information?

I have some luck using the FN key in conjunction the specific function. If
you don't have anyone to help, call the disability desk. Wish I would
memorize that number. Fortunately, Google is glad to give it to me.

I use several methods. If I know what it is I am looking for, I use the
control-f command to find it. I also jump by headings. If it is a form field
I am looking for, I use the letter f to find the first form field. Also, you
can list the links and look for skip to content.

Your laptop may have Came with a utility where you can turn off the media
keys so that the function keys can act as standard function keys. If you did
not, you will have to go into bios to make this change.

Re: What is the JAWS way to jump over the junk at the top of a websites pages?

Sue
 

John,

You probably have to hold down the FN key on your keyboard in combination with the regular JAWS commands. The FN key on most laptops is to the left of the spacebar either the third or fourth key. The FN key and the Control key on the left are different depending on the model of the keyboard. I've also seen the FN key at top right. Remember also that if this is a complete hassle there are two options. One is that you can change the JAWS keystrokes for the function key commands you use frequently. The other is to ask the manufacturer of the computer if their uses of the function keys can be switched so that the FN key is needed for them and you get to have the regular function keys for your applications.

Hope this helps a bit.

Sue B.

Re: Change F Keys

You've actually received two answers to this query. One, you may need
sighted assistance to change a bios setting, the second is that there
may be a utility available from your laptop manufacturer that will
change this behavior.
