Introducing myself & question on Google Voice with JAWS

 

Hello,

        My name is Brian Vogel and one of the things I do is tutor individuals who are new to JAWS and, typically, new or new-ish to being blind or vision impaired.  I think the earliest version of JAWS I ever dealt with is 10, and I have clients who are on version 16 that I will be updating to version 17 in the near future.  Since I am sighted, I do not use JAWS myself on a day to day basis so it's not something that is "just like breathing" to me and I know that those who actually use it as their primary access method to their computers know infinitely more about the little tricks that make using JAWS an easier experience.

         One of my clients is beginning an internship and she wanted a phone number that her clients could call that was neither her home number or cell phone number.  I suggested that we set up a Google Voice number for her since she has a Google account.  Since I've done this before getting the Google Voice phone number set up as well as having her record her personal greeting, etc., went perfectly well.  I have her set up to receive e-mail regarding missed calls as well as transcriptions of her voicemail messages.  The latter messages also contain a direct link that one can click to listen to that specific voicemail message.

          The issue is actually answering an incoming call from Google Voice with JAWS (I should add right now we're using JAWS 14).  When a call comes in a pop-up is presented at the lower left corner of the screen that has what appear to be two buttons, Answer and Decline.  Those buttons, though, aren't really buttons if you listen to JAWS, but appear to be links.  In any case, when the pop-up pops up JAWS clearly recognizes its presence because it announces, "Incoming call," which is the text shown near the buttons/links in the pop-up.  However, I have been completely unable to determine a way to access those buttons/links while the call is ringing to allow her to actually choose to answer it or decline it.

           Freedom Scientific Technical Support suggested I post here, as they have no answer to this question and said they have no experience with using any version of JAWS with Google Voice.

           If anyone can offer me any suggestions as to what I might try, or knows the answer regarding how to actually answer or decline an incoming call from Google Voice, I would love to hear it.   Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Google Drive/Docs

Natalia Voegele
 

Hi all,

 

     I was wondering if someone could help me with Google drive/Docs? I have listened to the FS podcasts on the subject and have a student which I need to teach these to. He reads a lot of documents using these for school. I have a hard time getting some of the commands to work and don’t know if it’s something I’m doing incorrectly, if it’s Google Drive/Docs, or a combination of both. I’ve called FS for help and I seemed to know more about Google drive/Docs than the representative I spoke to, did.

 

Thank you,

 

Natalia

updates need to be set to download but let me install them that way
when they are downloaded you should have a new updates in the task
tray that you can click on and then you tab over to important updates
and you press enter on that to bring up the list of downloaded
updates. down arrow through the list till you find the kb:3035583
update and right mouse click on it. you should then down arrow down
to hide update and you also uncheck the update with the spacebar
before you right click on it. you can then tab to the ok button and
press enter on the install button if there's other updates to install.

The only fully accessible player I know of is from IRTI, and costs $29.95
via download; $59.95 if you want them to ship you the install CD. It works
on whatever DVD player you have attached to your computer or built-in. You
can activate a movie's audio description track without sighted assistance.

Although you can use the software player just fine with JAWS running, it has
its own voice, and works best in that mode, so when you bring up the
program, it is best to put JAWS to sleep by either exiting JAWS, or better
yet, putting JAWS to sleep with the insert key space bar, then s.

Here is the link to all the info. You will for sure want the instruction
manual, which IRTI can give you, also by download or email attachment.

I am using it with Windows 7. As mentioned above, any JAWS version is fine,
since you can use the player's built-in speech.

Annabelle: I, too, have Cyberlink Power DVD, but honestly don't know how to
use it. My version is supposed to also play blu-ray; this is the program
that I find totally inaccessible with JAWS. How do you use it? What are
the functions to make the program "talk" through JAWS at all?

I have Cyberlink Power DVD which came with a laptop that I purchased a few
