I went into jaws help by hitting f1.
When I picked the subject and then hit f6 to read the screen, it did not read it as I hit up or down arrow. I had to hitinsert plus 8 on the num pad to read the current line.
Did I change something in my jaws setting> What do I need to change so jaws will read line by line as I go through the help menus?

What is the short cut key to have jaws tell me what key I am hitting?

No, it's free if acquired within the first year. I don't know how updates will work, but this is something different for Ms--a long-term platform, rather than an OS which will be superseded within two years or so

Good morning,

It may be too soon to ask, but I know some of you guys probably have been playing with or exploring already.
Has anyone successfully and independently installed and used Windows 10?
I've heard/read a couple of different things about not being able to install it without Narrator or something along those lines.

Also, does anyone know about Windows 10 being free for a limited time before we'd have to actually subscribe to it? I don't like that idea. What would that mean...One day I wake up and my computer wouldn't work any more until I pay money for the Windows service?
I'm a bit confused about that.

Thanks.

Re: Windows 10

 

Hi Jim,
A few things:
* Yes, you'll need to use Narrator. But before installing Windows 10, remove
JAWS first (all versions except 16.0.4350).
* You might be thinking of Windows 10 as a subscription service. The good
news is that it isn't - once upgraded within a year, Windows 10 will be
yours forever.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Microsoft outlook

Adrian Spratt
 

Some time ago, David Whitehead posted the following detailed instructions on how to create a message rule in Outlook 2010.

Message rules
I have made a few changes to the creating a message filter in Microsoft Outlook 2010&2007
here's how I create a message rule/filter in Microsoft outlook 2010.
First I create the folder, By doing the following; Ctrl+shift+e=create new folder. Now type in the name you wish to assign to the folder. Tab once you will hear; Folder contains: Mail and Post Items This is okay, no need to change, Now tab again, You will hear something like; Tree view, and then inbox, and all of the other folders are listed, So, I arrow up to personal folders, or, you could press the letter "p"=personal folders, And then tab to okay, press enter. So now you're folder is created. Next we need to assign a rule/filter to the newly created folder, By doing the following;
1, highlight a message which you wish to create a folder for, Example; One of the messages from this group. Email clients with screen readers@yahoogroups.com <mailto:Email clients with screen readers%40yahoogroups.com 2, press applications key, up arrow and enter on, Rules sub menu, Or, you could right arrow to open. Another way to do this is: Press applications key, press the letter "s" And then press the letter "u", which will directly place you into the message wizard. Here you will see the following screen; Always Move Messages From: email clients with screen readers@yahoogroups.com <mailto:email clients with screen readers%40yahoogroups.com
Always Move Messages To: email clients with screen readers@yahoogroups.com <mailto:email clients with screen readers%40yahoogroups.com
Create Rule... Manage Rules & Alerts... you now need to down arrow and enter on, create rule.... Note, as I indicated, if you use the shortcuts, the letter "s"&"u" no need to arrow anywhere, since you're in the message rule wizard. 3. you will now see a screen; Create Rule When I get e mail with all of the selected conditions From email clients with screen readers@yahoogroups.com <mailto:email clients with screen readers%40yahoogroups.com by default this box is unchecked you can check this box.
When I get e mail with all of the selected conditions Subject contains [email clients with screen readers] Outlook 2007, this box is unchecked by default I would leave this box as it is.
When I get e mail with all of the selected conditions Sent to email clients with screen readers@yahoogroups.com <mailto:email clients with screen readers%40yahoogroups.com this box is unchecked by default you can check this box. Do the following Display in the New Item Alert window by default this box is unchecked, you can leave as is. Do the following:Play a selected sound: this box is unchecked by default, you can check this box,
Browse... Here you could browse for a specific sound; Move the item to folder:this box is unchecked by default, however you need to check this box, Folder...press enter here, Now, you can arrow to the particular folder, Or, you can letter navigate, Then tab okay, press enter. OK Cancel Advanced Options... now you need to tab and enter on, Advanced options...
4. You will see the following screen;

Re: Microsoft outlook

Kane Brolin
 

Aside from just the sound that notifies you of an incoming message,
many functions within Microsoft Office can come with sound
alerts--including when a file is saved or printed. To have full sound
feedback capability in Office, you need to download and install the
Office Sounds add-in, which can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7015. This
works in every edition of Office I have ever used, up to and including
2013. (Not sure about how to implement this in Office 365.)

Kind regards,

Re: Is anyone familiar with outlook 2013

Kane Brolin
 

David:

I use Outlook 2013 in my workplace. And while I certainly would not
call myself a power user, I have created several folders, and I make
it a point to move manually different kinds of messages into these
different folders after they have entered my inbox.

I go to the Create Folder wizard by pressing Alt, o, and n in
succession. . As soon as I have done this, I reach a dialog box
where I can name my folder. Then I can tab a couple of times to
arrive at the Tree View where I can choose the level in the folder
hierarchy where my new folder is to reside. In other words, just by
using my Arrow keys to manipulate this Tree View, I can choose whether
my new folder will be accessible directly from the root or whether it
will be a subfolder within my Inbox or within some other core folder.

From experience, I also know that if I goof up when placing a newly
created folder, I can move it by manipulating the Folder ribbon as
well so it is fixed the way I want.

David, I know there is a chance you are asking something more complex:
such as, is there a way to make it so messages from different list
addresses go automatically into a prescribed folder other than the
general inbox?
I'm sure a way does exist to create a rule for this purpose, but I
don't know what it is. That would require input from a power user.

Kind regards,

-Kane

Re: Navigating the New York Times

Adrian Spratt
 

Roger,

Your "mobile version" suggestion works well. The other day I tried Jimmy's suggestion, which also worked well. This morning, I tried yours and found that the mobile version is very close to the print version I've missed for so long. I wish I'd figured it out for myself, but I'm glad you did and that you posted it.

You can make it easier to get to the mobile version link and then to the article's beginning.

1. Create a placemarker at the mobile version link. You do this by placing focus on the link, then pressing shift-control-k to bring up the JAWS placemarker dialog. Tab to "Add," then keep tabbing. You should check the box for all pages on the website and to anchor to text. In the future, each time you link to an article, press k to get right away to the mobile version link.

2. Getting to the start of the article. After clicking on the mobile version link this morning, I found that pressing 1 twice, then 6, landed focus just a line or two above the first sentence. This worked twice, so maybe it's a constant, at least until the next website upgrade.

After that, I pressed "say all" and experienced no interruptions.

Yes, I use all these techniques except for flexible web partly because the
NYT's webpages change from time to time and partly because the method is
just too cumbersome if used across the many websites I visit. In addition to
the minor annoyance of skipping links, etc., with n and other quick
navigation keys, the NYT format alters as I progress down each page.
Eventually lines break up, and I need to refresh. When I refresh, I often
find my focus has shifted elsewhere. I avoid "say all" on the NYT website
because I don't like to sit here as JAWS plows through ads, promotions of
other articles, photo captions, etc.

Navigation just shouldn't be this complicated. It's too distracting, as well
as time-consuming.

Adrian,
I too miss the print feature. However, I have just gotten used to using my
navigation keys to quickly get around articles. I generally use the 1 key
to skip to the first level heading (usually the main article title), then
use the n (next) key a couple of times to skipp past the various option
info. This will generally get me close to the main text. I then use Say
All or the read paragraph keys to go through the article. I also have set
up flexible web to delete as many of the advertisements as I can. While a
little more cumbersome than the old print function I have found I can get by
pretty well. I also like to use the H (next heading) key on main pages
(such as national news) to skip through the article headings.

Hi. Some time ago, there was a thread about changes to the NY Times website
that made navigation difficult and the "print" versions of articles
impossible to find. The Times promised me, and presumably others, that they
were working on making fixes. The problem has only become worse since then.

I'm posting this query to find out if others are experiencing a particular
problem. Unlike in the past, there is no "print" link in an article.
However, there is a "more" link. After clicking on this link, sighted
readers can see a link to "print." I can click on the "more" link, but the
"print" link is still elusive. I found it just now, but once I managed to
click on it (I had to go into links list), all I got was a printer dialog.
Escaping out of the dialog, I found the page was laid out exactly the way
the main article page is.

So, is anyone doing better at finding and using the "print" versions of NY
Times articles? If so, would you explain how? Any other suggestions? (I know
about the NFB version, but it lacks the links within articles that can be
invaluable.)

Re: learning to do scripting

From the little I've seen, it's fairly high-level--more plain language than machine language. There was a little script making the rounds on one of these lists a while back for quieting JAWS, before the ins-space came along. Some of you probably remember what I'm talking about.

Subject: RE: learning to do scripting

There is a mailing list for JAWS scripting:
http://www.freelists.org/list/jawsscripts

I intend to learn scripting in the near future, as soon as I can clear some time to work on it. I have made a living as a computer programmer for the past 30 years, so I don't expect it to be difficult. It will be "just another programming language". But if you don't have experience as a programmer, then I imagine you might find it quite a challenge. You would need to not only learn the JAWS scripting language, but you'd also need to learn basic programming concepts such as syntax, build errors, iteration, conditionals, variables, data structures, programming interfaces, software design principles, project management, etc. These are all things I learned in high school and college back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, so they are ingrained in me, but they would present a significant, perhaps insurmountable, learning curve for someone new to the area and self-educating more or less in isolation.

Huh. After reading that, I guess I sound like some kind of know it all! Ha ha. That was not my intent. I was just trying to point out that JAWS scripting is, in essence, computer programming. And that's something most people spend years learning how to do well. I just want you to know what you're getting into.

Just wondering how one learns to do scripting? If you can't see the
screen
to
begin with, how do you know what to code? Scripting interests me, but
I don't know how to get started. Are there any resources that teach
this
from
the beginning from a blind point of view?

I haven't looked lately, but I think a manual was once part of the JAWS package, and I know one exists.

Re: Microsoft outlook

Lelia

Not sure if you got a more intelligent response than Kevin's.
First, touch the Windows key and type
System sound
You will get an option something like, change system sounds.
Hit enter and tab twice.
Use your tab key to navigate to the tree view, if you have not landed on it
already.
Arrow down until you find new mail notification.
Tab twice to see what sound if any is selected. Any WAV sound will do but
the default is
Windows Notify.wav
If no sound is set you will need to, arrow down until you find a sound you
like or tab twice to browse for a sound and set it.
Don't forget to save your changes after setting the sound you will need to
tab to the apply button and use it.

quick question aboot blindtunes

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

I just purchased the latest blindtunes scripts.

I briefly listened to the 47 minute demo on the site talking aboot how to
use it. During the demo, it said we could select individual tracks by
pressing CTRL down arrow and pressing spacebar. It sucks that one cannot do
that without scripts with the latest itunes.

When I did this, I was told I can only do it during a play list, so I cannot
do this within the library so I can quickly add songs to a play list?

So, I can only do this from within a created play list? I'm going to listen
to it through one more time tomorrow night, as I just purchased the scripts
a few minutes ago, and I was to tired to listen and pay attention to the
demo.

And, I'm aware of the keystroke to get a list, but I like audio demos.. My
brain is different like that as it relates to processing information. Lol



Thoughts are welcomed though. I love you guys on this list.

Good night.

Is anyone familiar with outlook 2013

David Ingram
 

Hi list members, I'm wanting to know if anyone is familiar with outlook
2013? The reason why I ask this question is because I want to create
folders for different messages to go to from different lists that I'm on.
I'd like to make sure that the different folders are all the same level as
my in box. I would appreciate any information that you might have
concerning my inquiry.

Re: Trouble accessing menus in latest iTunes

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi. You don't mention if you arrow up or down once you land on one of the menus-file, edit, accounts, etc. On my system, which is similar to yours, these menus work tonight. I just checked.

Hi,

Running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit with latest J16.

After opening itunes, I go to the menu bar with an alt key. I can navigate to various menu headings with left right cursor, but nothing I do gets me into a list of options within any given menu category.

This worked fine last night.

I've tried closing an reopening iTunes several times. I've closed JAWS and restarted. Nothing seems to help.

Sometimes I get an announcement of Context menu, but nothing reads when this is up.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance, Keith

Hi,

I have a new My Passport 2 TB drive that I've connected via USB to my PC --
Windows 7, 64-bit, running J16 latest build.

The drive is seen in Windows Explorer, and I can get to it fine, listing the
several onboard folders, but I can't seem to do anything with it. All I get
is a statement about a Context menu, but nothing I do generates any
activity, whether using cursor keys, Tab, Control Tab, Applications key.

I'm stumped. I haven't had this problem with other drives of this type I've
used, all of which were just plug-n-play.

Any help appreciated. Keith

Re: Microsoft outlook

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Lelia,
In Jaws 16, Office 2013, and Windows 7, it is in the context menu, down
arrow to rules, left arrow, down arrow to manage rules and alerts, press
enter, and tab, or control tab around in the following warren, and you
should come across what you are looking for, lol.
Cheers Kevin.
