Re: classic firefox theme

Brad Martin
 

Not sure what a hamburger stack is, although I did have a good hamburger tonight. But in Chrome, pressing Alt causes JAWS to say "Chrome menu" and arrowing down seems to present a single-file line of options that seem to be just a long line of menu choices. I don't know if they're all inclusive, but all the big hits seem to be there.

JAWS Hints For Work With Outlook Instant Message

K Ducat
 

Interested in any hints for efficient use of Microsoft Outlook Instant
Message - seems difficult to follow continued strings of messages,
selecting participants, etc.

I am using Jaws 16.### and Outlook IM 2010 but am hoping to get the
latest JAWS version and Outlook 2013 next week. I need an
administrator to perform the install - everything is very locked down
in our environment.

Thanks - KD

Re: setting homepage with mazilla

 

Judith,

        Sorry I couldn't respond to your e-mail and I'm glad Brad jumped in here.  I had a 3.25 hour marathon with one of my clients this afternoon and returned home just a short time ago.

Brad,

        It appears that the trend toward non-dialog-box but more webpage like settings pages in both Firefox and Chrome is creeping outward both within those browsers and influencing others, too.

Brian


Re: setting homepage with mazilla

Brad Martin
 

To change your home page, Press Alt t for the Tools menu, then arrow down to Options.

The options screen is unusual, at least through JAWS. It's not a dialog box. Instead, it appears like a web page. So instead of tabs, you have to choose the page of options you want from a Listbox. At the top of the page, in the first Listbox (which almost seems empty until you turn on forms mode), select General. Then navigate the options as you would a web page, From there you should find the option to set your home page.

Just m.facebook.com
If for some reason that fails,

I think what you are looking for is:

You might be more comfortable typing in:

http://m.facebook.com

If you like using enhanced security features, (this is not by any means required), you could type in:

Re: versions that workwith JAWS 15

Brad Martin
 

With JAWS 15 and (in my case) Windows 7, I use IE 10 at work and IE 11 at home. I had encountered some problems with IE 11 at work, but it had to do with an Avast add-on, so I should probably go back to IE 11 at work too. If you have Windows Vista (you didn't mention your Operating System), I would think IE 9, which is the latest version that works with Vista and which will continue to be supported for Vista, would be OK too.

At home I use Adobe Reader XI, and at work I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Both work fine with JAWS 15. I actually feel like Acrobat Reader DC is a little more stable on my work computer than XI was, but my XI at home works well also.

I have no experience with Magic, sorry.

Re: Hot-Key for battery life left on Laptop

David Moore
 

Hi,
Caps lock + shift + B tells muy battery life. That command should work fine. I am using JAWS 17. That is strange that it is not working for you. Do you have your JAWS keyboard layout set to Laptop layout? You can have that set even if you have a desktop. Just press enter on options, enter on basics, and tab to the keyboard layout and arrow to the laptop layout. That way, the caps lock will work just like the insert key. The shift + caps lock + B should tell you the battery status.
Have a great one.

No, I wasn't missing that point at all.

There are a lot of people who pay no attention at all to the technical press, and for good reason, so they don't even know that the writing is on the wall with regard to Internet Explorer. I wasn't sure if you might be one of those people, and there are certainly readers here who might not know. All I was trying to do was to spread the word that Internet Explorer really is a dead end now and that something else will rise to take its place with the companies doing screen reading software.

I've just upgraded to IE11 and experienced no problems. but I'm using JAWS 16. frankly, I don't really think it would make a difference if JAWS 17 is being used.

As Brad Martin has already mentioned, the Firefox Classic Theme Restorer is purely cosmetic in nature.  If you are accessing Firefox with JAWS it is really neither here nor there unless it were to break something with accessibility.  I can't really see what purpose it would serve if you literally can't see it.

Firefox does not, by default, show the Menu Bar on initial installation anymore.  It can, however, be toggled back on by hitting ALT+V, followed by T, followed by M.

Not that it's a perfect security measure, but the whole reason for add-on signing is to increase the security profile of a given add-on.  Firefox Classic Theme Restorer is signed and can be verified by Firefox.

Re: Home based employment

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

For medical transcription, get the number from Directory Assistance of American Association for Medical Transcription. Ask them for direction toward getting certification. If you have had some courses or experience, you might be ready for the examination, so they should be able to tell what to do to arrange the examination and a proctor. They have study modules. At least, that used to be the case. I have been out of the field for 18 years, but others on this list may be able to give better guidance toward certification. I was certified for about 20 years. Once certified, it is necessary to take continuing education to maintain certification, and you probably would find that interesting and helpful to you with the work.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

companies I've worked for provided the transcription-specific

Many
