Uninstall

Kevin Wollenweber <dancingweed@...>
 

I am concerned as I prepare to upgrade to Windows 10; the functions are asking me to uninstall all earlier versions of JAWS, but this means that my accessibility will be hampered because earlier versions of JAWS read certain programs better than the current version.

 

Does anyone know whether Windows 10 gives back accessibility in some cases, allowing the screenreader to do more than the previous version of Windows?  Would accessibility be restored in so many cases?  In other words, does anyone have programs on their computers that were not working so well but, when upgraded to Windows 10, suddenly regained that accessibility?

 

Please help.

This is so Raw and unrefined it is silly. It is still in the beginning stages, but it works for showing what is possible. This weekend will be the big work time for it but here's a spoiler just in case you were wondering.

Hi Lauren,

 

I see that you received a response to your question about .pdf files.  That will resolve that issue.  I don’t like opening pdf files in a browser, much better if they load through Adobe.

Hi Les:

 

Will changing the default browser solve my problem of trying to open up a .pdf file in Outlook 2013 wit Jaws? Now, it doesn’t give me a choice and only opens up Edge.

 

Thanks.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

Hi Lauren,

 

I’d suggest you change your default browser to Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox depending on which one you wish to use.  To do this, hit your left windows key to bring up the search box.  Then type default browser and arrow to that choice and press enter.  Tab if necessary and you will find Edge which is likely your default web browser.  Hit the space barr on that button and you should get a choice of browsers to choose from.  Pick the browser you wish and press enter.  Once changed, Edge will not launch automatically.  It is likely you cannot uninstall Edge, but even if you could, I wouldn’t recommend that as at some point, Jaws will work with it and hopefully, it will be a better experience than Internet Exploder is.  Yes, I meant to say Exploder.

Hi:

 

When I try to open an attachment in Outlook 2013 using Jaws 17 and Windows 10, I right clicked and pressed enter on open and was hoping to get a choice of which program to open the file, but it automatically opens it in Microsoft Edge, rendering the file inaccessible to me. Should I uninstall Edge, will that effect Jaws or Windows OS or how to I get rid of it being the default program to open files in Outlook?

 

Please advise! Thank you.

Re: scanning to a .pdf file

That option would be in your scanner options. Most scanners have this option when a scan is initiated or when the scan is completed.

Welcome, Stewart.

 

I get the same “”task switching” message when Win7 reboots. Usually, if I press alt-tab to switch between windows, I land on the desktop. More often, I have an application in mind, such as my email client, browser or word processor, and I press the shortcut I’ve created to open it.

 

JAWS switching itself off is a separate issue, and I think listers need to know more about when you’ve observed it happen. Is it in a particular application? Does it happen in one browser but not another? Does it happen after your PC has been running a certain time?

We have Gerald Levy to thank for these instructions.

 

In Adobe Reader, go to the Edit menu and scroll  all the way down to the Accessibility submenu and select Set-up Assistant.  On page 5 of 5, the last page, of the Set-up Assistant is a check box  labeled “DisplayPDF documents in the web browser” which should be unchecked  so that the web page is processed directly by Adobe Reader outside of the  browser and not by the browser's PDF reader add-on, which does not always  work, especially in Windows 7 and later.

Or you can open the browser you want and set the “default” option there. Doing so will automatically un-default the current default browser. I’ve found no difference among browsers in the way PDF files are handled, especially if you have PDF files set to open in Adobe instead of the browser.

 

True, I’m using Windows 7, but I imagine these conditions work across Windows platforms.

As of a few hours ago, the full list archives (as in, going back to 2011) are now on groups.io. This means we have well over 8000 individual and completely searchable topic threads. Now comes the fun part.

 

A few days ago I said I wanted to start putting together a sort of FAQ for the JAWS list. I also extended the offer to have folks from the community lend a little help with that. Effective immediately, the door for submissions is thrown wide open. If you're not sure what I'm looking for, shoot me an email and we'll sort it out. If you have any other questions, feel more than free to do the same. For more details on what I'm thinking:

It's really unfortunate that Netflix discontinued its public API. Something
like this effort to make the interface more accessible would have benefited
from that. Similar to how other programs like Chicken Nugget, TWBlue does
for Twitter or even GWConnect did for Skype for a bit would almost seem like
a solid solution as a stand alone third party blind friendly ap.

I agree,, firefox has been very problematic for me too.

Would it be possible to make the netflicck scripts generic, as the jaws
scripts are?

While I completely understand and support not using IE for Netflix, would
you consider doing anything with regard to google chrome? Reason I ask
is
because Firefox has been problematic for me, spamy, and has been a source
of
vulnerabilities for myself as well as other computers I work with.
Looking
forward to your demo!!!

I have reached a point after nearly 50 hours of coding that it is time
for
an audio demo to show off the scripts. So far, there are two types of
navigation and control over the media player in firefox. I have dropped
support for Internet explorer in favor of firefox. It just does more in
the
media player. The navigation is very simple and it is great for those
with
cognitive disabilities or motor function problems. The keys are close
together and menu navigation is simple.
Navigation type 1:
You can press control Slash one time and hit enter to show the top level
objects on the page and then select them. Press it twice and hit enter,
it
shows the second level navigation options for first letter navigation.
This
is to increase efficiency and speed as well as skip the nonsense and
focus
on what you want. This method of navigation is fast.
Navigation method 2. Press Control shift slash and a menu appears listing
the important sections of netflix on the page. You can arrow or first
letter
navigate to it, then press the right arrow to view the children of that
particular section. Hit enter and it activates it.
Press left arrow and it returns you to the previous menu so you can
continue
to navigate down the list and preview things before you select them. Once
the first search is done, it is fast navigating through the menus. Each
time
you press the shortcut, it takes about 5 seconds to populate the list and
get the approate titles. I am working on increasing the speed, but it is
very hard when there is over 2000 objects on the page at a time.
The media player allows you to use the High Definition, move to
beginning,
end, play pause, skip to next episode and back, change volume and seek
time.
It allows for you to move back from this page and control fullscreen.
Still
working on the uadio and subtitles portion as it is very different from
internet explorer.
I'll record a demo tonight and show you how this is really neat.
Thanks,
John Martyn

re the jaws turning it self off
it can happen at any time and on any application.
as for the task switching it never use to do this.
i could just go to desk top on the pc starting
and it would stay there.

Welcome, Stewart.

 

I get the same “”task switching” message when Win7 reboots. Usually, if I press alt-tab to switch between windows, I land on the desktop. More often, I have an application in mind, such as my email client, browser or word processor, and I press the shortcut I’ve created to open it.

 

JAWS switching itself off is a separate issue, and I think listers need to know more about when you’ve observed it happen. Is it in a particular application? Does it happen in one browser but not another? Does it happen after your PC has been running a certain time?
