Just to add to what's been offered, there is also the add-on, Download Status Bar 12.3.0.1 by Szalgiris, that's apparently available for pretty much every major variant on Firefox out there.  To call it feature rich is an understatement, as it appears to let you configure virtually any and every aspect of downloading, including choosing a sound of your choice for notification when the download completes.  I doubt that anyone will use most of its features, but the one you are looking for is included among them.

Hi Paul,

 

Yes there is.  It's called, navigational_sounds-1.2.4-fx-windows

It can be gotten Here:

 

About this Add-on
Navigational Sounds plays the following Windows Internet Explorer sounds:
- Start Navigation
- Complete Navigation (silent by default)
- Blocked Pop-up Window
- Information Bar
- Feed Discovered (disabled by default)
- Search Provider Discovered (silent by default)
- Download Completed (all downloads by default)

 

The Download Completed sound can be configured to play when any active download completes or only when the last one completes.

 

All sounds can be turned on or off within Navigational Sounds but please remember that the sound played is set through Windows's Sound control panel applet
(note: Download Completed actually plays the "Windows Asterisk" sound).

 

New in 1.2.4: Custom sounds can now be configured through hidden preferences (UI coming later). To use custom sounds, open "about:config" and search for
".{d8". You should see a bunch of Boolean preferences for toggling the events plus ".custom" preferences that are empty. Simply find the ".wav" file you
want to play and set it as the preference value using Windows path formats (e.g. "C:\Media\click.wav").

Take care.

Good evening Mike!

 

  I am sorry to have to pester you with this, but do you know of a similar extension for Mozilla Firefox?  Most unfortunately, there are still some pages I have an easier time working with in Firefox, than in Chrome.

 

Take care,

This extension does two things:

 

1. Disabled the download shelf. Yes, I personally do not like it. So when I get the change, I just disabled it. You will get a badge while something is

2. Display a desktop notification when your downloading finished, and you could find it by one simple click.

 

TODO(May be implemented in future, may not):

 

1. An animated browser action icon which could show the downloading progress

 

2. A "OPEN" button on the notification card -- depends on whether Google would allow me to do so. [V0.0.4 added]

Yes, Brian, since the subject lines aren't always clearly indicative of what will be covered in the message body, a short quotation would make it clear.

Hello All,

Based upon some private e-mail I've received recently it appears that some of my responses on prior threads are "hard to follow" because they don't contain all the quoted material that would normally be contained were one interacting with the group through e-mail.

I've been using the web interface for the JAWS for Windows Support List via the groups.io site, here <https://groups.io/g/jfw/threads> , and not via e-mail. When you reply via the online forum it does not automatically quote the message you're responding to nor any prior responses to it.

While I intend to continue to use the web interface for my own convenience, I'm wondering if I should include a short quotation of the question or response to a question I'm responding to at the top of my posts to make it easier to follow exactly who and what I'm responding to?

I'd like to make these offerings as coherent as possible and as easy-to-follow as possible, so any suggestions will be welcome.

Brian


Re: Does anyone know whether there are jaws scripts for kendle for pc?

Ryan Coverdell
 

My Pac Mate is being sent in for repair. While it is gone I am using
my Braille lite m40. However, there are times when I might want to
read the contracted Braille books I've downloaded from bookshare.org
on my desktop pc so I can read while eating supper etc. Is there a brf
reader that allows me to read contracted Braille files using Jaws on
my desktop so I can read files from my sandisk flash card that I
already have? I know that with bookshare.org I can download text
versions of books, but I'd like to be able to read books I've already
downloaded and saved without changing their format first. Please
provide me with a link to such a program if it exists.

Thanks,

Ryan

P.S. Windows 7 and jaws 14.

Re: CONFUSED! Adobe Reader XI seems to do OCR automatically?

 

Peter,

          I can confirm what Brad Martin has said in all regards.  I have several clients using JAWS 15 with Adobe Reader XI and it does not do any OCR conversion automatically.  In fact, I recently posted a thread about an alternative to Adobe Reader, Tracker Software's PDF-XChange Viewer, that does have built-in OCR that I have clients use when they want their OCR to be stored permanently with the PDF in question.

          I was under the impression that JAWS OCR did not store the text layer that it creates for a given PDF for future use and that you have to redo the JAWS OCR any time you open that file again.  Am I mistaken?

Brian


Re: CONFUSED! Adobe Reader XI seems to do OCR automatically?

Brad Martin
 

I'm confused also, as Adobe Reader XI alone won't do this. Perhaps newer versions of JAWS or Windows 10 did it for you. Adobe Reader XI is just an older version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The latter integrates with Adobe's document cloud, but if you're not using the cloud functions, the two are pretty much similar. Think of DC as more like Adobe Reader XII (12) if they hadn't changed the name, with the newer version integrating features from Adobe's document cloud.

So perhaps JAWS versions newer than 15 are helping you convert those scans. With JAWS 15 and Windows 7, neither DC or XI will do this for me automatically.

Brad

Hello,

I’m confused. Before, when I opened a recently scanned PDF document, I heard:

I would then use the JAWS OCR to convert the PDF document to text.

 

Recently I did a clean install of Windows 10, and I needed to download Adobe Reader. I chose XI, not knowing that there was a DC version. The latter is probably what I used to use.

 

Now when I open the PDF image document, there is no announcement:

  “Alert, empty document”.

 

The image has been converted to text. Using the JAWS virtual cursor, I can read what can only have been converted with OCR.

 

Did Adobe Reader XI do the OCR conversion automatically?

What is the difference between adobe XI and DC?

Is there a difference between Adobe Reader and Acrobat Reader?

Maybe there is more than one Adobe Reader, and I don’t know which is which.


Any clarification will be appreciated. Thanks.

Are there JAWS Friendly Facebook Clients?

Brad Martin
 

I've seen a lot of messages about Twitter clients that work with JAWS. Is there anything that works for Facebook like that?

Specifically, I'd like something that would allow me to post messages either as myself or as one of the several pages I manage. I have no idea if something like this exists, much less whether I could use it with JAWS 15. I envision something like the way Thunderbird lets you quickly change whether you're sending from one account or another, without having to use the web interface which is clunky on a good day. Any thoughts? Does something like HootSuite do this, and is it workable with JAWS?

While I intend to continue to use the web interface for my own convenience, I'm wondering if I should include a short quotation of the question or response to a question I'm responding to at the top of my posts to make it easier to follow exactly who and what I'm responding to?

I'd like to make these offerings as coherent as possible and as easy-to-follow as possible, so any suggestions will be welcome.

Hello All,

Hi Annabelle & Adrian,
 
I'm not very familiar with the way the Time Stamp feature is used but, could this be used / modified to deal with this issue?
Take care.
Mike

In principle the date created cannot change, but in reality it can. I’ve noticed it myself, but I haven’t determined what might cause it to happen. It can cause problems, such as in figuring out which of two related, similarly-named files came first.

Date created cannot be changed through any easy means since it's meant to denote when file was actually created.  What gets shown by default in the generic "date" field in Windows Explorer is not date created, but date modified.  Any time a file is edited by any program that makes any changes that get saved the date modified will be updated.  Date created remains fixed at the date the file was created on the system.

You get some interesting results when you copy files with regard to these two dates.  The copied versions will have a date created of the date & time when you pasted them.  However, their date modified will be carried over from the original files, so you can have something that shows a date created of today but a date modified of three years ago.

It states the Creation Date as November 13, and it states the modification date as 12/23.

Hello Annabelle,
I'm puzzled how the creation date got changed in the first place. If you place focus on the file name, then press alt, and arrow down to properties, does it state that the creation date is November 11 or 13? In properties, it should give both the creation date and modification date. Please let us know.

The reason why I want to change the date is because I originally made the file on 11/11/2015 at 10:12 AM< and I want it to have that as the "Date Created", instead of 11/13/2015 at 5:10 PM.

don't thin windows will let you change this. I'm sure it would be possible for someone to write a program to do it, but why do you want to change the date?I

Re: Is There a Way For Me to Change...

 

Annabelle,

       As is typical, when there's a will, there's a way and someone will have written a utility to do what you're looking to do.  In this case that someone is Nir Sofer with his BulkFileChanger utility.

       Take a look at this article regarding using BulkFileChanger first.

       I cannot say how well this program will work with JAWS as I've never tried it, either with or without JAWS.  A am, however, familiar with this gentleman's work and it's generally good, so I hope it's coded in such a way that it interacts with JAWS as one would hope it might.

Try looking in file properties, and go to the summary tab. Using advanced settings you may be able to change that date setting to one you like.
