Re: accessible router

Brad Martin
 

I haven't used a Linksys in a good while, but I never had any issues with accessibility with the old ones I used to have. I currently have a Belkin, and I can manipulate it just fine.

Re: Bug with temporary speech rate change?

Okay, thanks. Yeah, I guess I was hallucinating. Thanks for the permanent
rate change shortcut.

Too bad it's not sticky for the program, though. That seems like it would be
useful.

I have always noticed the rate change back to original rate when switching
between programs.
However, if you press the control plus windows and alt keys together with
the page up or page down keys you can quickly set your speech rate on the
fly.

I expected this setting to stick with the application while it was running.
In other words, if I set a slow rate in Outlook, but a fast rate in Internet
Explorer, then I should be able to switch between those two programs with
ALT + TAB and have either slow or fast speech depending on which program has
focus. If I exit the program and restart it, then I'd expect the speech rate
to be restored to the default. But while the program is running, I'd expect
the temporary speech rate setting to stay in effect, even after I switch

What I see instead: Switching away from a program then back to it with ALT +
TAB seems to cause JAWS to forget about the temporary speech rate setting
for that program. Text from the program is then read at the default speech
rate rather than my temporary setting. Note that I'm not exiting the
program. It's still running, I'm just changing focus with ALT+TAB away, then
back to the running program again. But JAWS seems to have forgotten the
temporary speech rate that I had set for that program.

If I'm not mistaken, it has been sticky for the program up until some
relatively recent JAWS update, and now I'm getting this new behavior where
JAWS forgets about the speech rate setting after switching away and back.
Has it always worked this way, and I'm somehow mistaken? Or is this a bug?

I have noticed that Firefox seems to crash a bit with video embedded

an add-on called Adblock. I installed it at the recommendation of a
friend, but when I did, almost all my crashing problems stopped. You
can download it at www.getadblock.com if you want it. It has fixed
most of my issues.

How to Rename an iOS Device in iTunes 12.3 for Windows Using Jaws for Windows 16.x or Later

Mark <facebookmark@...>
 

Hello Everyone,

After a recent thread, on the V iPhone's mailing list, in which I posted
that a person using a screen magnifier can rename an iOS device in iTunes
12.3 for Windows, I decided to determine how such a task may be performed
using a screen reader, in this case, Jaws for Windows version 16.

Before I begin, let me say that I successfully renamed several iOS devices
on three different PCs, including a Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10
computer all running iTunes 12.3 for Windows via Jaws 16. No screen
magnifier was installed on any of these computers.

Simply stated, to rename an iOS device from within iTunes for Windows 12.3
via Jaws for Windows 16, do the following:

NOTE 1:
You cannot rename an iOS device from within iTunes during a synchronization
session.

1.
With iTunes open and your iOS device attached, select the iOS device using
your preferred method. All things being equal, you will be placed in the
Device Summary view.

2.
Turn on the Jaws Touch Cursor.

NOTE 2:
It is not necessary to have a touch-screen enabled computer in order to use
the Jaws Touch Cursor.

3.
Using the arrow keys or a jump command, make sure you move focus to the
upper left corner of the display. If you are at the upper left corner of
the display, pressing the left arrow-key on your keyboard will cause a bump
sound indicating that you are at the upper left corner of the display.

4.
Tap the right arrow-key once, and Jaws will say, "iTunes."

5.
Tap the right arrow-key again and focus will land on the name of your
attached device. Jaws will say something like, "Mark's iPhone."

6.
Now, perform a Jaws left-mouse-click by using key combo Jaws-Key+8. An
audio feedback sound will be heard indicating that you have activated the
device name edit field. You may now use your arrow and alpha/numeric keys
to hear/edit the text in this field. When you're finished editing, simply
press the Enter Key, on your keyboard.

7.
Should you wish, you may now switch back to the Jaws PC cursor.

That's all there is to it.

Happy Renaming.

Mark

Re: problem with creating a folder

Adrian Spratt
 

Paul,

In some menus, JAWS verbalizes either "open" or 'closed" against names of folders that contain subfolders. If closed, pressing the right arrow will open a list of the subfolders.

I'm guessing this is what Judith is referring to, suggesting how she would navigate to the folder she wants.

But this is moot. She's solved her problem.

Subject: RE: problem with creating a folder

I think the problem you ran into was that you had something selected in the
list view. When something is selected in the list view, the context menu
does not contain a New submenu. You must unselect your current selection
with CONTROL + SPACE first, and then the New submenu will be available.

Here's some info about how I use the application key to create new folders.

You can always see your current location by hitting ALT + D to go to the
address window. INSERT + UP ARROW to read the contents, if necessary. Do
this to verify you're about to create the folder in the correct / desired
location.

SHIFT + TAB backwards from there to get to the list view (might be something
other than list view, depending on how you've customized it, but I think
list view is pretty common: It's the contents of your current location.

Hit CONTROL + SPACE until you hear it say "not selected". Then hit the
application key to bring up the context menu. Hit W for the New submenu, and
select Folder. You now have a new folder, and you're in edit mode on the
folder name. Type in the desired folder name, then press enter when done.

Good luck.
