Re: Drag and drop

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Here you go:
 
Use the key strokes, (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH) for Drag and Drop .
This is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another.
Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press
CTRL+INSERT+NUM
PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC
Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned
the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the
item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to
the position of the active cursor.
Take care.

Re: Changing themes, using the "start memu", to get rid of "task switching" ...

 

Jim,

        I am struggling to understand what you're trying to describe with the phrase "task switching."    I don't have the usual access to a Win8.1 computer at the moment, but I don't recall anything akin to the Windows 10 task view button on the task bar.

        When I hear "task switching" I immediately jump to being able to switch between active programs using ALT+TAB.

In my case, the entire system becomes extremely slow to respond to
keystrokes, to the extent that it's impossible to use. Keystrokes are
processed, but there are delays of seconds at a time. Various programs
(including Outlook itself) cause the system to issue error dialogues which
state that the program is "not responding". Sometimes, the only way to deal
with this situation effectively is to resort to the power button - the worst
available response to make on any modern operating system, but when
everything else fails, there isn't a good alternative.

The system is Windows 7 x64 with Microsoft Office 2013 installed.

Re: Adobe Acrobat Pro-9 extended and reading PDF files, only one page

John J. Fioravanti, Jr.
 

That's exactly what I found; however, Brian, when using acrobat pro 9, I found an easier way.

While in the program, hit control+K, type "read" and tab over four times or so until you hear "for large documents, only read the currently visible page." This is the default. Arrow up to "read the entire document." Hit enter and you're all set. I wouldn't keep that setting all the time because every time you open a PDF file, the program goes through each page in opening it, very slowly.

Good luck, and thanks for that, Brian.

Subject: Re: Adobe Acrobat Pro-9 extended and reading PDF files, only one page

 

I recently encountered this issue with a client and here is what came back straight from the Freedom Scientific Technical support "horse's mouth," and it worked just fine to solve the issue:

This is an Adobe Reader setting that is causing this (reading only the single/visible page) to take place. If you walk through the instructions below, you can change this setting:

A. Using the Accessibility Set Up Assistant

When you launch a PDF the first time, the accessibility set up assistant opens. If the accessibility wizard has already run, do the following to open it:

1. Press ALT+E to open the Edit menu.

2. Press Y to select Accessibility submenu.

3. Press ENTER on Set Up Assistant. The first page of this five page dialog box opens. The default choice is fine, press ENTER to move to the next page.

4. On the second page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page three.

5. On the third page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page four.

6. On the fourth page, if you want to use the list of links, list of headings, and the JAWS find command so on to access long documents, change the radio button from

"For large documents, only read the currently visible pages"

to

"Read the entire document at once."

If you do not make this change, in long documents JAWS only sees the links and headings on the current page. Additionally, JAWS can only search the current page with the JAWS find command. If you do select read the entire document at once, it may take a few seconds longer to process large documents, but it is worth it to be able to see the links and  headings in the entire document, or to search the entire document with the JAWS find.

7. Press ENTER to move to page five of the Set Up Assistant.

8. If the check box for Reopen documents to the last viewed page is checked, you may want to uncheck this. It is a personal preference. TAB through until you reach the check box for "Display PDF documents in the web browser," and uncheck it.

9. Press ENTER to activate the Done button.

 

B. Additional changes in Adobe Reader XI preferences.

1. Press CTRL+K to open the Adobe Reader XI preferences.

2. In the Categories list on the left side of the dialog box, choose Accessibility.

3. Press TAB to move to the item, Show Portfolios in Files mode (not checked by default) - check this.

4. Press TAB to move back to the Categories list and choose Security (Enhanced).

5. Press TAB to move to Enable Protected Mode at startup (checked by default) - uncheck this.

6. Press TAB to move to the OK button, and activate it with the SPACEBAR.

 

NOTE: The option to view PDF documents in the browser is no longer found in the Preferences. You must use the Set Up Assistant to find this


Re: Jaws hesitating

Dr. Vikas Dixit
 

I also sometimes come across this type of situation, that is, while navigating through a document (no matter word or pdf), Jaws stops for a couple of seconds, and starts either itself or again scrolling up and down or left and right arrow keys. However, this happens only rarely, and I don't know the exact reason of this hap. If anyone has any idea, may share.
Regards!

>Does this happen to you? Jaws stops responding or hesitating for about

I'm finding several situations where Jaws hesitates as I navigate

through a document with the down arrow.



It started some time ago while I still had Win 7 64 on a desktop custom

built for DAW use.



I've just updated to Windows 10. I did not do the clean install from

media as I want to just try things out before committing to 10.



I used the clean up tool from FS.

I only had Jaws 16 at the time.

I did not remove 16 after using the clean up tool.

I downloaded and installed and am running the latest Jaws 17 64 bit version.



All my apps and data and even some settings and log in information

carried over nicely.

I just wonder if I also didn't Cary over all sorts of bugs.



It mostly happens on web pages using Firefox after the system has been

in standby or sleeping. Usually, a restart fixes it.



Just wondering if others have seen this. No need to write if you have

not had this problem.



I may do a clean install but might also take the system to a shop and

have the components checked as I seem to have more then normal bugs.



BTW: Before upgrading; I did remove some tools that could run in the

background such as CCleaner and Malwarebytes.
