Re: Using JAWS with HP eRequest / Service Request Catalog tool

Page, Aaron
 

Hi Peter,

 

It sounds like this is an inaccessible Flash-based browser application. In theory, you could use JAWS Custom Labels to add some labels to the unlabeled controls, but you would still have trouble with any actual content being presented by the application.

 

You could try using a combination of JAWS custom labels to label the buttons (you’ll need sighted assistance to determine their function), and then use Convenient OCR to read the text content of the application, but I really would not expect this to work well enough for you to successfully use the software in a work setting.

 

Do they have a mobile version of the software you can access? The helpdesk software we use is not the most accessible, but it is significantly easier to use with JAWS in the mobile version. Typically the mobile version will not use Flash.  

 

Hopefully someone else on the list has a better suggestion, but this has been my experience with inaccessible Flash-based applications.

Subject: Using JAWS with HP eRequest / Service Request Catalog tool

 

Hi all –

 

As part of my role at work, I am needing to use a browser-based tool sold by HP. The tool is called “Service Request Catalog” (SRC), also formerly known as eRequest. It’s function is to manage queues of requests and work orders.

 

I am using JAWS Professional Edition Version 16.0.4463 with IE 11.0.9600.18314 running on Windows 7.

 

To date, I have had zero success in being able to access eRequest / Service Request Catalog.

 

When I navigate to the internal sight, I only get content such as is shown below. Any suggestions / recommendations are most appreciated.

Wow, this is not so great.  Think about it.  History has shown over and over
that such mergers usually lead to higher prices because of reduced
competition.  Ultimately, either JAWS or Window Eyes is likely to be phased

Hi, Maria and list. I just spoke with Hal in the sales department of Freedom
Scientific, and he did confirm this. He could not tell me whether the JAWS
screen reader and the WindowEyes screen reader would remain independent
software programs, or whether they would be merged into one screen reader. I
did voice my opinion that there are those who are dedicated to the use of
both screen readers, and that many would not appreciate them being merged

I also asked him to pass on to his supervisors that the users of both

happen with both screen readers as a result of this merger.

You are not losing your mind. I have seen this. When it happened to me I
rebooted and JAWS read the menu correctly.

I am a PrivateBeta tester and localizer of the JAWS for Windows screen

others also did not report this problem.

Hello,

Has anyone else experienced this?
I noticed it a few days ago after updating to the latest JAWS 17.

When I press the Windows key, all I hear is: "cortana".
JAWS no longer announces the items as I arrow up or down. This is
what happened with JAWS 16 and the new Windows 10.

If I kill JAWS and start NVDA, then I can hear the Start Menu items.

The Windows key still works together with the other keys:
WINDOWS+e for File Explorer and
WINDOWS+ i for the setting.

I'm just curious if anyone else has noticed this problem.

Hi, Maria and list. I just spoke with Hal in the sales department of Freedom Scientific, and he did confirm this. He could not tell me whether the JAWS screen reader and the WindowEyes screen reader would remain independent software programs, or whether they would be merged into one screen reader. I did voice my opinion that there are those who are dedicated to the use of both screen readers, and that many would not appreciate them being merged into one software.

I also asked him to pass on to his supervisors that the users of both software programs would appreciate some clarification about what would happen with both screen readers as a result of this merger.

Ah. The makers of WindowEyes have merged with Freedom Scientific. You will hear all about it, I'm sure.

Re: JAWS and HDMI Question

I have so many fancy audio settings on my laptop, and I don't know what most of them do.  It could be simply a matter of changing a setting, but I couldn't begin to suggest anything.  Good luck.

Hello,

 

I am trying to have projection and audio output to projection screen and sound system using an HDMI cable with my laptop. The issue I am having is that when the HDMI cable is connected, the audio does not work. It looks like JAWS (v 17) is moving around the screen yet no sound.

The HDMI cable was tested with another laptop that has JAWS 14 version and the audio worked.

 

Any suggestion are appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Cathy

 



Re: JAWS and HDMI Question

 

Cathy,

            I'd give Freedom Scientific Technical Support a call on 727-803-8600 weekdays between 8:30 AM and 7:00 PM EST, or send an email to support@... that gives precisely the same information you gave here.  If this is time critical I'd go the phone call method.

            Everything you describe suggests to me that this is likely a JAWS bug.  It may not be, but I'd run down that possibility first.

Re: Windows 10 Start Menu no longer recognized by the latest JAWS 17 update.

To uninstall jaws click on the .EXE command for your version of Jaws where ever it is located from when you downloaded it to do the initial install. After doing a bit of setup Jaws will offer you the choice to repair/modify/uninstall Jaws. Choose the uninstall option and follow the prompts.

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I still have not fixed the problem that JAWS will not announce the Start Menu items. I know that the menu is opened and I know how to navigate through it.

All I can do is a repair. I have not found a way to completely uninstall JAWS 17.

I just sent this issue to Tech Support. The automatic response is now from something called VFO.

My last attempt was to reinstall using the latest j17.0.211enu-x64.exe. It started out with the JAWS setup but then I was given 2 options: modify or repair.

So now I have done the repair in two ways and the Start Menu, once opened, JAWS still does not recognize.

I can still right click the Start Menu button and arrow up and down with JAWS announcing most of the menu items. I can also use the file explorer to quickly access the most recently used items.

Now to wait for a response from the VFO tech support. Thanks again for all of your response.
