Solved, sorta: Mozilla Firefox Add-ons with JAWS?

Brad Martin
 

I added another add-on to Firefox called Classic Theme Restorer, which gave the toolbars an option to show text labels instead of icons. This did solve the problem of not being able to find the Add-On I had first installed. I did have to use the instructions previously provided on this list to allow the virtual cursor to work, but that was no problem. So now I can find the icon on the "toolbar", but when I click it, JAWS just kind of shuts up. So although I got access to the add-on icon, the add-on itself is not accessible, and it seems to be that way for many of the add-ons including the ones that came with Firefox. I clicked on something called "Hello", and then couldn't do anything with that either. Now Classic Theme Restorer I could read.

In short, install whatever add-ons you want, but it's anybody's guess whether you'll be able to do anything with them. That's what I learned today.

Thanks, Bill. I did that (and just did it again following your instructions), and it does let me choose whether to autoupdate the add-on or not, and it gives me buttons to disable or remove the add-on. But there's a whole interface I'm supposed to be able to manipulate that I can't get to. I think if I can get someone sighted to click on the add-on icon on the toolbar, I can move it to the menu bar, and then I might be able to access it. There's apparently a little stopsign looking icon that sighted people can get to, so when somebody's here I'll try that. You apparently can't do it with JAWS because the toolbar is a row of icons with no labels that I never knew existed (virtual cursor can't even find it).

Thanks anyway. This was fun.

Hi, Brad. I use Firefox with JAWS13. I only have one AddOn which has options. This is Navigational Sounds. Here is what I do to reach the options for Navigational Sounds within Firefox.

1. Start Firefox.
2. Press the ALT key and Right Arrow over to Tools.
3. Down Arrow to AddOns, and press Enter.
4. Turn off the Virtual Cursor by pressing Jawskey plus the letter Z.
5. Tab once to reach a listbox containing the following menu items:
A. Get AddOns
B. Extensions
c. Appearance
d. PlugIns
e. Services
6. The AddOn for which you want to configure the options will probably be found in either:
B. Extensions
or
e. Services
7. Arrow up or down through the various AddOns found in these lists.
8. Once you find The right AddOn in the list, Make sure the Virtual Cursor is still off.
9. Arrow up and down a couple of times to make sure the AddOn is selected.
10. Press Enter on the appropriate AddOn.
11. You will know if the press of the Enter key takes effect or not, because when it does, JAWS will say, "Read Only".
12. Tab several times, and you may see links to the person who created the AddOn.
13. Finally you may see an Options Button. Use Space Bar to press this button.
14. As you use the Tab key, there will be a list of options to configure.
15. Once you have configured the AddOn's options (usually with check boxes, but also can be with Combo Boxes), Press CONTROL plus W to close the AddOns Manager Window.
16. The AddOn should now be properly configured.

Subject: Mozilla Firefox Add-ons with JAWS?


Does anybody know how to actually use Add-ons in Firefox? Sure, I can install the add-ons, and I can go to the Add-on manager to enable, disable, or remove them. But how do you actually get to them without a mouse and a set of functioning eyes? I've Googled and Googled, and all I find is that I'm supposed to use something called an Add-on Bar. Wish I could find one. I've tabbed until my tab key almost went on strike from abuse, and I don't see anything like that. Going to the View, Toolbars, option doesn't allow me to choose Add-on bar. I found a shortcut key, Control /, that's supposed to turn the Add-on bar on or off, but I don't know if mine's on or off, because I can't find it before or after I press Control /

Any bright ideas? I installed an Add-on and it's functioning, but I'm supposed to be able to configure its options, and well, yeah, no, not so much.

Thanks,
Brad

Thanks, Bill. I did that (and just did it again following your instructions), and it does let me choose whether to autoupdate the add-on or not, and it gives me buttons to disable or remove the add-on.

Mozilla Firefox Add-ons with JAWS?

Brad Martin
 

Does anybody know how to actually use Add-ons in Firefox? Sure, I can install the add-ons, and I can go to the Add-on manager to enable, disable, or remove them. But how do you actually get to them without a mouse and a set of functioning eyes? I've Googled and Googled, and all I find is that I'm supposed to use something called an Add-on Bar. Wish I could find one. I've tabbed until my tab key almost went on strike from abuse, and I don't see anything like that. Going to the View, Toolbars, option doesn't allow me to choose Add-on bar. I found a shortcut key, Control /, that's supposed to turn the Add-on bar on or off, but I don't know if mine's on or off, because I can't find it before or after I press Control /

Any bright ideas? I installed an Add-on and it's functioning, but I'm supposed to be able to configure its options, and well, yeah, no, not so much.

Thanks,
Brad

Re: JAWS REPEATING

Hi again, Robert. Did you perhaps mean Jawskey plus the number 6 on the numbers row, instead of Jawskey plus F6?

This might help. Try changing verbosity settings for your browser Jawskey+f6 gives different options than jawskey+v.
Configure Verbosity Levels
Items to Be Spoken
uncheck Document Name

Try other settings.

pretty much immediately start tabbing through the links, H through the

I hope that helps.

Running latest jaws.
When I go to a web page, jaws speaks 3 times the beginning.

Why and is there a fix?

Re: JAWS REPEATING

For Me, Jawskey plus F6 just gives a listing of headings, if there are any on the webpage, when I am in the browser.

Re: disabling Forms Mode

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Thanks - it was Sandra that wrote the message with a side bar to me.

Right now,Outlook is looking better and better, if I can just figure out how to make and revise Buddy lists. I am seeing that the addresses are shown in the contacts, so that I don't have to do the Properties thing like in OE. I've had it for a week, and look back, realizing that I didn't learn Outlook Express in a day, so it's coming along.

Thanks for all the member information here.

Best from,

Carolyn

Subject: disabling Forms Mode

Hope no one minds a somewhat-high-maintenance member... I am part-self-taught, part-trained-by-state-agency, part trained-using-audio-tutorials, and certain concepts are still either fuzzy or untried, despite my years of JAWS experience! I am also a highly visual learner, and process things best with a combination of Braille notes and hands-on... BTW, does anyone know if JAWS training materials are available in Braille? I do have the quick-ref booklet, but it’s of limited use. One question I’ve had for years: when materials mention an “element,” what exactly is that? Also, is there a keystroke for skipping to new messages on a website such as ours?

Really appreciate everyone’s feedback—I am the type that needs to know why things work the way they do, before really mastering concepts! Far more insight than I have previously. I will also try the Automatic setting again; didn’t seem to change things, or maybe I just didn’t understand it completely... Also, Kevin, I changed the Forms Mode sound to a long match-strike, due to some mild Asperger’s; it may be that I will have to select the next-least-intrusive sound, if the softness of that sound is making it harder for me to negotiate using Forms Mode. It was a nice idea, but not necessarily the most practical (LOL)! So, there’s no longer a “pop,” which I did experience as jarring; will have to see what other choices I have.

Carolyn, though I’m not familiar with the back story, I will keep Meredith in prayer—I’m a prayin’ woman. Your scenario happened to me just a few weeks ago, when I was trying to email my sister-in-law about a lunch date and ended up sending it to my mom instead—oops! No worries. Thanks!
