Re: browser and clickable woes

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hi Guys,

 

Have you tried JAWS key(insert key) + enter. My department of labor has a lot of clickables and that is what I use to click on them. And on the ones that are collapsed, I hit the same key combination to open and shift + Jaws key + enter.  I hope this helps.

 

To test it login to the Virgin Islands Department of Labor website VIEWS.ORG as a guest and try it out.

Stan,

         The first thing I would suggest is clearing browser cache for your browsers either by their internal methods (which you can find by doing a search on the browser name plus the two words clear cache) or using a third party tool such as CCleaner and see if that makes any difference.

          I have seen all kinds of problems pop up because of cache corruption and just as mysteriously disappear after cache is cleared.  This may have nothing to do with your problem but it's stall a good place to start.

Re: JAWS Command-Line Arguments and Switches

Page, Aaron
 

Hi Steve,

Launch the JAWS setup executable from a command line with the /? Switch, and after UAC the Freedom Scientific Setup Package Help should appear, which lists out all of the command line arguments/switches that are available.

I have also pasted this information below. Good luck!

The Freedom Scientific setup package is a tool used to install or uninstall multiple components, including the main product. The following explains the available, optional command-line options. These commands are not case sensitive.

/MoreHelp
Displays additional help information, if available, about the setup package such as a list of setup types. The installation process is not performed.

Example:
c:\package.exe /MoreHelp

/ExtractSettings <Path-to-file>
Outputs the contents of Settings.ini to the output file specified. The installation process is not performed. If the output file already exists, it is overwritten. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ExtractSettings "c:\FS setup\OldSettings.ini"

/ReplaceSettings <Path-to-file>
Specifies an initialization file for the setup package engine to use instead of the Settings.ini file stored in the resources. This flag can be used if any of the contents in Settings.ini must be overridden. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ReplaceSettings "c:\FS setup\NewSettings.ini"

/ReplaceLanguage <Path-to-file>
Specifies a resource DLL for the setup package engine to use instead of the resource DLL file stored in the bootstrapper. This flag can be used to specify an alternate, external set of resources for the installation. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ReplaceLanguage "c:\FS setup\NewResources.dll"

/Log [Path-to-file]
Allows the user to specify the location of the setup package log file. Logging is enabled even if this command line argument is not specified unless the /NoLog command line argument is used. If this command line argument is not specified the setup package log file will be located in C:\Users\aaron.page\AppData\Local\Temp\\jawssetup\FS_Setup_Package.log.

Example:
c:\package.exe /Log "c:\myFolder\mySetup.log"
The log file is created under c:\myFolder\mySetup.log.

/NoLog
Allows the user to disable the creation of the setup package log file.

/Type <name>
Specifies the setup type to use instead of the default. To view a list of available setup types, use the /MoreHelp command-line option.

Example:
c:\package.exe /type ServerWithSpeech

/Passthru <Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]>@<Command>
This argument will append the specified command to the specified installers in a given package.

<Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]> - this portion of the argument specifies the installers which will receive the command. Each of the Installer strings should correspond to a section name in Settings.ini.
<Command> - the command to append to each of the specified installer's command-line. If you wish to passthrough a command that includes the characters /, - or # you must use the following escape sequences:
Sequence String
#0 #
#1 -
#2 /

Please note: All occurences of # in <Command> are interpreted as the beggining of an escape sequence. All instances of # and the character which follows the # will be replaced if a matching string can be found. If no corresponding string can be found then the # and the character following it will be removed
For example, the sequence ## in <Command> would be removed where as #0 would be replaced with #.

Example:
c:\Package.exe /passthru AnInstaller,AnotherInstaller@#2l

Asume that the following is the Settings.ini from the above package.exe.
---Begin Settings.ini---
[default]
PreInstall = AnotherInstaller|AThirdInstaller
MainInstall = AnInstaller

[AnInstaller]
Name = AI
File = msiexec.exe
Arguments = /i AI.msi

[AnotherInstaller]
Name = AnI
File = AnI.exe

[AThirdInstaller]
Name = AtI
File = AtI.exe
---End Settings.ini---

The complete command-line executed for AnInstaller would be:
msiexec.exe /i AI.msi /l

The complete command-line executed for AnotherInstaller would be:
Ani.exe /l

Subject: JAWS Command-Line Arguments and Switches

Where would I find a complete list of JAWS startup command-line switches and options? I need to write a quick-and-dirty three-line batch file to stop JAWS, change screen resolution with another program, then start it again. I have discovered that it's best to restart JAWS after changing screen resolution, so I thought I'd just put everything in a batch file and stick it up on the Desktop for easy activation. But I can't find a comprehensive list of JAWS command-line arguments and switches anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Are mp3's accessible on Amazon now?

Sharon
 

Check to see if you are downloading the same song over and over by doing this, instead of a new song each time.

On a call to Microsoft, I was told that when you down arrow between downloads, the last download is picked, but that when you tab from one to another, you select the next one in a list. At least in Windows 7 anyway.

Hi,

Yes once purchased if you tell it no to downloading with their app it’ll prepare you a zip file of your purchases.  This can be accessed both from your after purchase page or from your order history page for that digital order or your music library I believe.  It’s quite user friendly. If you have a shopping cart full of songs and there’s more than one zip file you’ll just have to amend the names of the zip file in the save as dialog box so as not to over write one file over another.  So I just append their amazon download.zip name with a number before the dot zip so as to avoid this.

I hope that helps.

how do you set the "send page by email" option to work

I would like to send internet pages either to others or to myself via
email, specifically webmail. Two questions. How do you activate this
option in internet explorer. Secondly, how do I make my gmail webmail
account my default email it goes to when sending attachments instead
of windows live mail? That program may have to be retooled or
something because I can't get it to work. I'd like to not have to use
it. Please, please send me these lists of instructions for doing these

Has anyone out there used the chromvox which is the screen reader for chrome browser? If you have had some experience with this screen reader, did it work well,

Re: help for Kindle PC on Windows 10

I have kindle for pc on windows ten and it seems to work fine on my computers.  Yes, it’s tricky getting it signed in to amazon but once you do that, your good to go.  I’d advise just using the kindle software as a downloader though and converting the books to epub using codex and reading with Kurzweil or q-read though if you can.

has there actually been a specific update for Windows 10? The last time I attempted to use it was about nine months ago with JAWS 16 and it did not work. According to their web site the last time it had been updated was for Windows 7. If there has been an actual update I’ll try it again but when I contacted Amazon to address this issue I found them to be very unhelpful.

And, just in case anyone might want to get "the brief skinny" on interacting with the JFW Group via e-mail rather than the web interface, send an e-mail to:

                          main+help@jfw.groups.io

and you get a response back telling how to subscribe, manage your subscription options, post, etc.

Even if using the website (which I do) to interact with the group you will have to join/subscribe to the group before you can post.  You can do this by hitting the "Join this Group" button on the main page for the group, which is https://jfw.groups.io/g/main
