I learned something new. I didn't know that Windows D is a toggle.  That is very helpful.


Thanks Jeanette.

Hello all,

I was working with a client yesterday going over Jaws Keyboard commands along with windows keyboard  commands, and she told me that someone told her that it was wrong using the windows M to minimize all programs to get to the desktop, and that she should use the shortcut keys windows D as a way to get to the desktop. I also explained that she could use the   windows D or M, and that the desktop would be selected with all APPS minimize.

So in your opinion, what would you suggest?

I realize that Windows plus D for desktop is the best answer for understanding a user command to get to the desktop, but does it matter if the user is knowledgeable when it comes to computers?

I'd suggest Windows-D because that will work on the first press. I find
that Windows-M often needs to be pressed at least twice before speech is
heard. The downside is that if you only have a Windows Key on the left side
of the keyboard, you have to cross over your hands to execute that command.

Re: Accessibility of "Amazon Music Desktop App for PC"

"Kevin Hourigan " <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello JAWS Users,

Perhaps it would be useful to file  complaints concerning such issues.

I do not think this response is, “Off Topic”, since such actions will improve things for JAWS users.

I am in BC  Canada, and while legislation is in the works, it is not enacted here yet, except in Ontario. But the U. S. legislation below looks pretty good to me.

 

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires the U.S. federal government to take accessibility into account when procuring information technologies: websites, telephones, copiers, computers, and other technologies, including both hardware and software. The parts of Section 508 most relevant to web accessibility are "1194.21 — Software applications and operating systems," "1194.22 — Web-based intranet and internet information and applications," and "1194.31 — Functional performance criteria."

Section 508 applies to:

·    US federal government entities only, but the effects of Section 508 have permeated the information technology landscape because so many businesses, non-profits, and local and state governments do business with the federal government. To sell to the federal government, private entities have to offer accessible products and services.

Section 508 is enforced by:

·    Consumers (people with disabilities) filing formal complaints

I'm not sure that's true. The different programs now have their own executable files. You can launch Writer or Calc or whatever you want from separate program shortcuts. And unlike the old versions, JAWS reads at least Office Writer and Office Calc pretty well. Those are the only two I usually need.

If you elect to display everything in plain text format you will most likely get this link (and that's what it is) featured prominently, as virtually all e-mail today is generated in HTML format, and commercial e-mail in particular.

I would suggest following Carolyn Arnold's advice and making sure that your default display and compose option is HTML. It appears that the default display option is HTML, and you can change whether or not images are automatically downloaded when included in a message via the Trust Center.

Re: instead of office?

 

Both Open Office 4.1.2 and Libre Office 5.1, as shipped and installed with defaults, both use a main panel through which one can launch any of their component programs.  Those component programs, for both, are standalone programs and one can elect to put shortcuts to any one or more of them on the desktop.

Open Office and Libre Office share a lot of "genetic material" with Libre Office being a spin-off of Open Office if I'm remembering my chronology correctly.  This can clearly be seen in the component program names (in the description after the name the first being what Open Office shows in the main panel and the second what Libre Office calls it:

                      swriter.exe Text Document | Writer Document

                      scalc.exe    Spreadsheet    | Calc Spreadsheet

                      simpress.exe  Presentation | Impress Presentation

                      sdraw.exe     Drawing  |  Draw Drawing

                      sbase.exe     Database  |  Base Database

                      smath.exe     Formula  |  Math Formula

but have a question with Outlook 2016 Message Views

Hello, everyone.



First of all, I'm happy to report that after one call to Freedom Scientific
Tech Support, and several calls to the Microsoft Accessibility Hotline, my
personal g-mail access issue with Outlook 2016 has been resolved. It turns
out that my local g-mail account in Outlook somehow got corrupted, so a new
g-mail account was created in Outlook, and now, all is basically well.



However, I do have one question that I hope someone can help me with.



On Friday, before my problems with my g-mail account started, Outlook
2016 was showing me the various fields in an e-mail message in the expected
order: from; sent; to; cc; BCC if appropriate; subject; attachment
list if appropriate; followed by the message body. And, I was able to
easily access each field via the tab or shif-tab keys if needed.



Now, the ordering of the fields in an e-mail is quite different, and
accessing the fields via the tab and shift tab keys seems very clunky.



The Microsoft Accessibility Hotline technicians feel that this is just the
way it is with Outlook 2016, and that there is no way to change the ordering
of the fields. They also seem to be at a loss with regard to making things
operate more smoothly when using the tab and shif tab keys.



Is there anything I can do to correct this situation?



It's particularly frustrating to me since things were working better last
week, and I've reviewed every configuration setting I can think of to
optimize Jaws with Outlook 2016.



Thank you!

If it helps any the last time I downloaded the app on my laptop I had my cousin look at it who is cited, and she said it was a mess and she hated it.
She also could not find what the directions were telling her to do inside the app for downloading music. What I mean is she couldn't find where anything was located.

I'm glad to know that hasn't changed since last year or the year before.
Have you maybe tried the iPhone app? If you have an iPhone because with the iPhone app you can at least listen to your music.

Hi!

 

I have installed the Amazon Music Desktop App For PC.  Regrettably, it seems to be very much inaccessible.  Does anyone have any ideas about this?  Might there be any JAWS scripts for it?  Are there any JAWS or App settings other than the default settings that would improve accessibility?  Are there any alternative programs that would link into Amazon Music (I am an "Amazon Prime" member) that are more accessible?

 

thanks,

Richard

I trust Brian's judgment, went back and checked HTML, but I can tell you that it is under Edit Options, but then you have to Tab about 60 times to get to OK, which you have to do if you want to keep the text you last checked.

Bye for now,

If you elect to display everything in plain text format you will most likely get this link (and that's what it is) featured prominently, as virtually all e-mail today is generated in HTML format, and commercial e-mail in particular.

I would suggest following Carolyn Arnold's advice and making sure that your default display and compose option is HTML. It appears that the default display option is HTML, and you can change whether or not images are automatically downloaded when included in a message via the Trust Center.

The 32 and 64 would make since, because with JAWS, they offer each in an
update, and you have to choose according to your computer.

Tom,
JFW17 works fine on my WIN7 computer. Did you load the wrong version; 32
bit vs. 64 bit, or vice versa? Not sure that could happen, but worth
looking at.
Good luck.
