Re: Is there a comprehensive/exhaustive list of JAWS keyboard shortcuts?

 

Mike,

           Could you either send this to me via e-mail or quote it here.

           Anyone not interacting with the JFW List in e-mail itself, but using the web forum interface, cannot see any attachments that someone else might send.  I've already identified this as an issue, but I have no idea who can resolve it.  The fact that attachments are not shown, let alone accessible, via the web interface means that the historical repository for the JFW List is missing big chunks of information people have shared or will share via attachments.

           There's also no way that I've encountered to even include an attachment from the web forum interface.

 Donna,

              Thanks.  It's certainly much closer.  The F6 (and it's "reverse direction" SHIFT+F6) command is documented in this list and I've never seen it elsewhere.  Of course, the way it's described, "Switch Between Windows", is not in any way true as far as how Microsoft or anyone else using Windows would describe the action.  What it appears to do, in virtually any situation where I've used it, is to move you between control and/or display panes/regions/areas/whatever you might want to call them that reside within a single window.  ALT+TAB, which switches your focus between active programs, is far closer to "switch between windows" than what the F6 command does.

Nermin,

           Thanks, I'll give this a look.  But what I was hoping for is an actual reference document that one could either print or carry around in electronic format of some sort.  It's handy to have this sort of thing when "plotting strategy" for some things that seldom need to happen.

           That layout is exactly parallel to the keystrokes documents, but perhaps the "live content" is more extensive.  That could be helpful in the moment, but not so much when I'm not in front of a computer running JAWS.

Re: Jaws 17 issues with edit fields in Internet Explorer 11

Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

HI,
Rgarding JAWS 17, I now refer to an earlier version of JAWS with FaceBook and include some maybe useful commands at the end of this message.
I am able to type in comments on FaceBook using JAWS 16 and I E 10 and all the words do appear.

Because a super tech helped me with FaceBook, I will put in some of what I learned.

ON FaceBook hit "e" to go to the FaceBook search editfield or
Simpler hit the "/" key (minus the quotes). You will be almost on top of the editfield for searching.
The "/" is listed under keystrokes for (sighted) users of FaceBook and is part of a command "control + /" which did not work as well for me.
However, you may find the / actually inside the edit field. Make sure to erase the /, and then type in the search term.
Also using semi forms mode makes the edit field easier to use.
Then if you hit "q" that takes one to the main region where search results can be found.

Hope this helps

Russell:

Yes, JAWS 17 plays havoc with edit fields. As I possibly already stated, when I'm on Facebook and write comments to someone else or on my own page, only the first letter gets posted. Yet, if I go back to JAWS 15, I have no problems at all. I'd like to know why this happens. This may be akin to the issues you're having with EDIT fields on Internet Explorer.

 Charles,

               That's what pretty much everyone does as far as sighted assistants go when confronted with JAWS processing something in its virtual space that cannot currently be seen on the screen.  Sometimes that's a simple task, but very often it's not.

               It would just be so much simpler for those who are working with a sighted assistant to have JAWS "follow along" on the screen to match where it is in JAWS virtual space.  It could also save hours of time when you're dealing with huge webpages that aren't all that easy to wade your way through to find that match-up.  It gets really interesting when there are intentionally invisible elements on a web page that JAWS detects but aren't necessarily accessibility related and are intentionally never meant to be interacted with by the visitor to that page.

 I absolutely will.  The following is the e-mail message I sent to FS Tech Support yesterday.  The title I allude to is the title of this very thread.  If when they respond, and they always have, I'll post the response here, too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello,

 

         A topic by this title has just come up on the JAWS for Windows mailing list, and it is a question I have had myself as a sighted JAWS tutor for a very long time now.  I have finally wrapped my head around the JAWS virtual cursor and that both webpages and PDF files are reformatted in JAWS virtual space and traversed in JAWS virtual space and for someone who cannot see this is a complete non issue.  However, sighted assistants and tutors such as myself are often called upon, and even if we do understand the JAWS virtual cursor (and many don't) it is insanity-making for a sighted person trying to assist to even begin to figure out where on the "real web page" JAWS is currently processing in JAWS virtual space.

 

         Is there any setting one can use in JAWS, whether "on demand" or permanent, that will make JAWS cause the actual web page to scroll as necessary to follow, visually, where the JAWS virtual cursor is in JAWS virtual space that corresponds to that visual location?


Re: Favorites in windows10?

 

Ann,

       I was hoping I was going to be able to report on a simple way to pin Favorites in Quick Access directly from the search results bar, but I cannot get NVDA to take focus out of the Cortana (what used to be windows search) edit box where I type in Favorites in any way that I normally can do this, thus I cannot use NumPad Star to right click on it.  So, now on to the slightly more complicated way, but not horrible, that I'll step by step:

  1. Open File Explorer.
  2. Navigate to C:\Users\{your account name or abbreviation here}.  I say account name or abbreviation here because it could be either one depending on whether your account is set up with a Microsoft account login versus a local login.  This can also be affected by whether the account existed in an earlier version of Windows prior to your running the Windows 10 Upgrade on a machine.  You can be guaranteed that the first few characters of the appropriate folder should be recognizable based on your actual username for login. 
  3. In the items list for that folder you will find the good, old fashioned Favorites folder, which contains IE Favorites as link shortcuts or in subfolders.  Navigate to it and select it.
  4. Hit ALT+H+PI and that Favorites folder will now be displayed in the Quick Access area of File Explorer any time you open it. (You can, of course, choose to Unpin it from Quick Access at any time and it won't show up there if you do).

One of the nice things about Windows 10 is the search feature. If you want
to get somewhere and don't know the path, press the windows key and type in
what you want. I will haven't found a good path to favorites, but when I
want to open it I type "favorites" into the edit box and windows says
'favorites, folder' and there it is.

If you open the Start Menu JAWS item and then open Explore JAWS, you can select Explore Manuals and there's a document named Keystrokes that's available in both .doc and .txt format. This is as close as you're going to get.

Hi Brian,

 

so what you were actually hoping for is a quick reference sheet of sorts. As far as I know, no such thing exists. You would need to filter out the commands that interest you during a given training session and build a glossary of sorts yourself.

I have to believe that this is the same Keystrokes document you can download from the FS site under the "Support->Documentation" dropdown then choosing the "JAWS® Screen Reading Software" link.  It's available in HTML, PDF, and plain text formats.  Which brings me back to where I started.

I will, however, check this out in case, by some miracle, what gets exported is not precisely the same as what is available for download.

Re: Jaws 17 issues with edit fields in Internet Explorer 11

Have all of you who are having this problem actually reported it to FS as an
issue in JAWS 17? Also, this is why I always keep at least one older version
of JAWS on my computer any time I install a newer one: this way, I can exit
the latest version and bring up the older one if I encounter a problem that
wasn't present in the earlier version.

Yes, I've had many issues with Facebook as well. I'm surprised at all the
problems I'm having with edit fields elsewhere though! It seems like FS
continues to add new features that no one really wants, when they should be
concentrating on making daily tasks, like typing and editing text in web
browser edit fields work as they ought to. I don't know about anyone else on
this list, but, after a couple of days playing around with the "smart
navigation" feature, I went into settings centre and turned it off. I find
it quite a nuisance. Others may like it, and that's fine, but I'd sooner FS
make edit fields workable again.

Thanks for your feedback Carolyn.
