I can't seem to log in. I type my password and it doesn't seem to know
that I typed one in. It seems to think I forgot it. Please try logging
in yourself and see if it does the same thing. Internet explorer 11,
jaws 14, and windows 7.

I'd really like to get this resolved tonight.

Re: Question about the Groups.io forum

 

Carolyn,

          This isn't an e-mail issue, I'm talking about the actual presentation of these messages on the groups.io website.  While I get the digests several times a day I've never participated in the group via e-mail, but via the website.

          Since this issue is utterly unconnected to JAWS or Freedom Scientific, I'll save my cage rattling with them for when it's needed, and it has been needed in the past!!

Brian, I happened to think that if your e-mail client is a Microsoft product, Outlook or Windows Live Mail, maybe Microsoft Disability, 1-800-936-5900 could help you.

Bye for now,

Carolyn,

The funny thing is I can't make that sort order stick for message threads. I've submitted a help ticket to see what I need to do to make that arrangement permanent and to apply to all message threads.

Trust me, I've been having the, "It's just not worth it!!" moments at, well, moments.

Re: JAWS command for "SaySysTray" ...

When I press Insert F11, it says Select a Systems Tray Item, one of two. When I hit Windows B, it gives me the notifications, systems tray, time, stuff about Lenovo, way more selections.

jaws+f11 gives a dialog with the tray items in a list, along with
buttons that allow a left single click, left double click or right single click. win+t actually puts focus in the tray area and you have to use regular jaws keys to do clicks.

And jaws 17 did not change what occurs for me in any appreciable way.

I looked at my key bindings and see that Say System Tray is not bound.

I don't have this problem with Jaws 17. Insert-F11 works as it always

something else is going on with your system.

HI ALL, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Among some of the more bothersome differences between JAWS 16 and JAWS
17 is the following irony:

Although I have set "SaySysTray", in JAWS 17 - as I had it set in JAWS
16, to: "ins/JAWSKey+F11", this command will not work. It just "sits
there"!

Farther down the JAWS 17 list of JAWS Keyboard commands is:
"ViewSysTrayItems", and this is set to: "control+shift+F11".
However, this simply displays a list of what's on the SysTray; but,
you cannot take any action on the listed SysTray items. Whereas, with
the "SaySysTray" command, you could "do something" with the items on
the SysTray, e.g. open the "context menu" to "safely remove hardware",
access network settings, etc.

Suggestions, as to how to get this function to work, will be
gratefully welcomed. Thank you.

Jim H

P.S.: When I can as clearly identify/describe other "bothersome" JAWS
17 issues, "I'll be back"!

Found the solution to my own question, and have applied a dope slap to my forehead for having missed this for so long.

On both the thread view of the messages and an individual message thread itself there is a link at the upper right side of the screen just above the first item displayed that reads "Date" and that has a tiny up arrow or down arrow next to that word depending on how you toggle it.

As it turns out, the main view of the message threads as a group was set by default to display in reverse chronological/newest first order. The view of the messages in a single thread was set by default to display in chronological order. Simply clicking on that Date link to flip it to reverse chronological within a message thread gives me the messages from newest to oldest.

This forum is much easier to read when that's the case!

Mike,

         IE was so late in the game of allowing add-ons and the implementation is different.  It's no surprise that this is done in a way "not like everyone else" in the browser world.

         I just wanted to hit on the more conventional Firefox and Chrome implementations when Firefox was mentioned.  The one in Opera is also very similar.



Re: Adblock Plus, How / Where To Access Settings

Brad Martin <brad@...>
 

Poor Brian. Poor well-meaning but misguided Brian. (I'm giving him a hard time as we have been having conversation off list.)

Mario, let me help you out.

If you're using Adblock Plus on Internet Explorer, the installer is a good old-fashioned Execute file. It creates a folder in Program Files, which is what Mike referred to earlier. In that sense, it is a program of sorts. And the way you edit the settings for Internet explorer is from an HTML document in that folder, which is the address Mike referenced.

Brian is correct that in Firefox (and presumably in Chrome too) it's an extension or add-on. So you are correct that it doesn't create a program folder for you. However, Brian can see things we can't see, like toolbars. So he's directing you to a toolbar which would be perfectly correct if you could find it. I wish we could access it that way, because hovering over that toolbar button shows you the number of ads blocked on the current page, which I think would be kind of fun to see. But it doesn't work that way for us. The good news, however, is that in Firefox, on the Tools menu, at the very bottom--right below Options--is an Adblock Plus submenu (as JAWS reads it), that will take you to the options screen. You don't get to see how many ads have been blocked, but you can easily manage your settings that way.

Hope that clears up any confusion.

Brad

Mike's description was for Adblock Plus for IE. If you use it in Firefox, just look in the Tools menu within Firefox. It's much easier to find that way.

Re: Jaws speech and Zoomtext magnification?

I am running Zoomtext 10.1 and JAWS 16 and I have not had any problems as of yet.  If you have the opportunity to do this, install JAWS first and uninstall it last.  There can always be an argument of which one keeps control of the vidio card.  You should not have any troubles with running Zoomtext without speech and having JAWS to speak for you.

Hi – I’m wondering if anyone is using Jaws speech with Zoomtext magnification. I did use this combo for years, but then abandoned Zoomtext in favor of Magic when it seemed almost impossible to get Zoomtext and Jaws to work together. This was at least 4-5 years ago that I made the switch. Now I’m having some problems with Magic and other products, like J-Say and Matlab (latter with Magic v. 13, so had to roll back to v. 12). Before I start a trial of Zoomtext, I would like to hear about any experiences out there with this combo. I always preferred the Zoomtext product for magnification.
