Re: anti virus question

 

I have never seen any antivirus program alter settings other than those it alters at its installation.  If your IE settings were altered at the installation of AVG the only thing an uninstallation should do is to set them back to their exact state prior to the changes made by AVG.  

To my knowledge AVG has not and does not tweak the Internet Options settings of Control Panel, which are the settings you'd be interested in.  If this really concerns you do a quick pre-uninstall review of the Internet Options tabs, noting what your settings are, and review them again after the uninstall to see if any have changed.

Re: step by step keyboard instructions for making iheartradio.com my google chrome home page

 

Ryan,

Some candidate webpages for Google Chrome web browser keyboard shortcuts:

http://www.computerhope.com/shortcut/chrome.htm

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/157179?hl=en

https://www.shortcutworld.com/en/win/Chrome.html

https://www.chromium.org/user-experience/keyboard-access

http://www.howtogeek.com/114518/47-keyboard-shortcuts-that-work-in-all-web-browsers/

or try a Google Search on "Google Chrome Keyboard Shortcuts" if the format of none of the above proves suitable.  There are scads of webpages documenting the keyboard shortcuts for every major web browser, e-mail client, and other program out there.  Finding the one that best suits your purposes is generally a "search and slog" affair.

Setting your startup page in Google Chrome is very easy:

  1. Hit Alt (throws focus on the Chrome menu key), followed by Enter (opens menu), followed by 'S' (opens settings tab)
  2. On Settings tab, search for the "Open a specific page or set of pages" radio button and activate it.
  3. Search for the "Set Pages" link and activate it.
  4. In the Set Pages pop-up dialog that opens you can do one of two things.  There will be an edit box that allows you to type in, one by one, the web addresses for all the web pages you'd like to have Chrome open when you start Chrome.  You will hit Enter after each address and a new instance of that edit box is opened for you to type in the next address.  There is also another very handy alternative.  You can open all of the web pages that you'd like to have appear at Chrome Start before you start this entire process.  If you do this first, there is a button that says "Use current pages" that causes the web address for every tab currently open to be snagged and added to this list without your having to type it.  This can be very useful if you don't want to land on a sites home page but have navigated to the exact location inside the site that you'd like to have opened.
  5. Find and activate the OK button if you want to keep your selections or the Cancel button if you do not.
  6. If you have an established set of pages that you wish to have opened you can add to these or remove one or more at any time by repeating this process, but for existing pages there will be a "Delete this item" associated with the individual web addresses.  Unfortunately I have not been able to figure out how to navigate to this control using NVDA.  Someone else may be able to detail how to get to that control using a screen reader.

Re: Problem With Messages Stuck In Drafts Folder In Outlook 2016

Tom Behler
 

Bill:

 

Tom Behler here again.

 

I had a few spare minutes here, and accessed my personal g-mail imap account on the web.

 

It took some doing, but I was able to delete those five messages in my drafts folder, so they are now completely gone from my account and from Outlook.

 

It still puzzles me how those messages got into my drafts folder to begin with, since I know they were successfully sent, but I’ll chalk that up as a slight mystery, at least for now.

 

Thanks for the help.

First, Tom, do you have a POP account or an IMAP account. This could make a difference. If it is a IMAP account, try logging into your gmail account on the web, and see if they are still in your drafts folder. If they are, try deleting them online instead of through your Outlook client. If it is a POP account, it is a different problem entirely, and it sounds as if your drafts folder is corrupted.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am having an interesting problem with my personal g-mail account in Outlook 2016 in Office 365 here.

 

For reasons I don’t fully understand, I have 5 messages stuck in my drafts folder, that I can’t seem to get rid of.  These are messages that were successfully sent over the past few days, but they still appear in my drafts folder.  I have tried deleting each item, esentially moving them to the deleted items folder and emptying that folder with no luck.  I have even selected and individually deleted each message.  When I have individually deleted each message, I was informed that the deletions would be permanent, which was fine with me.  The items get deleted from my deleted items folder, and even temporarily from my drafts folder, but within a few minutes, they re-appear in my drafts folder again, as if nothing ever happened.

 

How can I get rid of these messages in my drafts folder once and for all?

Hi Brian,
 
Would you please define your version of accessible?  I've used Vipre 2016, & for example, if Vipre quarantines a program that you know is not a risk, please tell us how you get it out of quarantine, & tell Vipre to ignore this item so it won't quarantine it any more?!  This is only 1 example, amongst many others!  Since Vipre 2014 this program has not been accessible, as per my definition of accessible for Jaws, unless someone feels that arrowing & tabbing without knowing what's happening is defined as accessible.
Take care.

I’m anxious to see if track changes have been fixed. For some reason, Freedom Scientific screws this up from time to time.

Under Microsoft Word 2016, it's indicating where the changes are and always
presenting the text as it currently is (i.e., the current version).

I haven't found a way to read what was inserted/deleted.

Frankly, no screen reader handles change tracking in word processors very
well, so far as I am aware.

I also experienced a bug several times recently (running JAWS 17 and MS-Word
2016) whereby inserting a comment into a document was enough to cause both
MS-Word and JAWS to become unresponsive, requiring Word to be restarted.

I inserted a comment into an MS-Word file yesterday using JAWS 18 beta and
didn't experience the bug, but it wasn't happening every time under JAWS 17,
so it isn't clear yet whether it has been fixed.

Usually, I write my documents in a text editor (not a word processor), in a
format such as LaTeX or Markdown, then convert them to PDF, HTML, MS-Word
format or whatever is needed. Pandoc is a very useful tool that I've been
relying on extensively of late. http://www.pandoc.org/

I also use Git to track changes - it's much more powerful than a word
processor, as it's used extensively to manage large software projects and even
books. The "--word-diff" option can show you, word-by-word, what has been
inserted or deleted, as in

This text contains {+inserted words+} and {-some words here have been-} deleted.

hi there:

I agree with you on the research it issue.

but I think it’s a lost cause.

I’ve been on freedom scientific about this for 2 years, so don’t hold your breath.

Yes, meet Migration, the artist formerly known as Merge.

I also wish they could figure out how to reintroduce the former Research It access to NFL, MLB and college football.  Mitch

New Features Added in JAWS 18

 

The following features are new to JAWS 18. For more information and complete demonstrations, go to the FSCast web page and listen to episode 131.

 

Migrate Settings from Prior Versions of JAWS

 

We have reintroduced the ability for users to merge all user customized settings from the prior version of JAWS into the latest version. This includes any application and default settings, scripts, dictionary entries, graphics labels, PlaceMarkers, flexible web rules, personalized web settings including custom labels, speech and sounds schemes, and voice profiles. When JAWS 18 first starts after an install and it detects that there are custom user settings for JAWS 17 available, you will be asked if you want to migrate these settings to the current version of JAWS. Choose Yes to migrate your settings from JAWS 17, or choose No to start with the default settings in JAWS 18 and launch the Startup Wizard.

 

Once the settings have been migrated, a dialog box opens where you can configure the JAWS startup options. This dialog box contains the same options found in the Start JAWS Options dialog box, which is accessed from the JAWS window by opening the Options menu, Selecting Options, and then choosing the Automatically Start JAWS button. Once you have confirmed how you want JAWS to start, choose OK to save and close the dialog box.

 


Note: Due to significant changes to the settings file structure prior to JAWS 17, custom user settings can not be migrated from versions of JAWS older than version 17.

 

Completely New Import and Export for JAWS Customized User Settings

 

JAWS 18 now enables you to quickly and conveniently export all of your JAWS user settings including application and default settings, custom scripts, dictionary entries, graphics labels, PlaceMarkers, flexible web rules, personalized web settings including custom labels, speech and sounds schemes, and voice profiles to a single backup file which can be stored or shared with other JAWS users. The JAWS settings backup files are saved with an SBAK extension. This backup file can then be easily imported on any computer running JAWS 18 or later and these settings will be used by that copy of JAWS.

 

To export settings to an SBAK file, open the Utilities menu located in the JAWS application window, open the Import/Export menu, and select Export Settings. The Export Settings wizard opens and guides you through exporting your settings. During this process, you can choose to export all user settings, or select specific settings to export. By default, the SBAK file is saved to the Desktop using the name JAWS<Version Number>SettingsBackup (where Version Number is the JAWS version currently running when using the export feature). You can specify a different location and file name if necessary, as well as add optional comments to provide more information about why you are creating the backup. Once the export is complete, the SBAK file containing your settings can be shared with other JAWS users through email or a file sharing service such as Dropbox, or stored on a USB flash drive.

 

To import JAWS settings from an SBAK file, open the Utilities menu located in the JAWS application window, open the Import/Export menu, and select Import Settings. The Import User Settings wizard opens and guides you through importing the settings. By default, the import will merge the settings from the backup file with existing user settings and if a setting in the user folder conflicts with a setting from the backup file, it will be replaced by the setting from the backup. However, you can also choose to simply replace all current settings in the user folder with the contents of the backup or, when merging and there is a settings conflict, you can choose to keep the current setting.

 

During the settings import, the current settings in your user folder are automatically backed up. If you find that the settings that were imported from the SBAK file are not working as expected, you can restore the previous settings. To restore, open the Utilities menu located in the JAWS application window, open the Import/Export menu, and select Restore Settings. The Restore Settings dialog box opens where you can select the backup file to restore. Choose the Restore button to replace the current settings in your JAWS user folder with the settings from the backup.

 

Some instances of when you might use this feature include:
•You want to use the same JAWS settings on multiple computers, such as in a training center or school computer lab.
•You create a lot of customizations and you want to be able to back them up so you can easily import them when you install a new version of JAWS, elliminating the task of having to manually reconfigure everything.
•A friend would like to use some of your flexible web rules and voice profiles. You could use the Export Settings wizard to only export these particular settings, send the resulting SBAK file to your friend, and if they are running JAWS 18 or later, they can import the file containing your flexible web rules and voice profiles into their copy of JAWS.
•A script developer could send you a SBAK file containing custom scripts and settings for an application that is used at your job and the Import Settings wizard will quickly import all settings and script files to the correct locations in your JAWS user folder.

 

Restrict Virtual Cursor in Web-Based dialog boxes

 

If a dialog box appears on a web page as a result of an action such as activating a specific control, which can occur especially on pages that are part of a web-based application, JAWS now restricts Virtual Cursor navigation to the dialog box. Sometimes, depending on how the web application is implemented, when focus moves into these dialog boxes, the content of the surrounding page is hidden until focus moves out of the dialog box. However, in many instances, the dialog content merges with the surrounding page which can be confusing especially when you only want to focus on the content in the web dialog box.

 

JAWS automatically restricts Virtual Cursor navigation to the dialog box when some action occurs that moves the focus into that dialog box. This includes navigating to an edit field in the dialog box with the ARROW keys and Auto Forms mode is enabled, navigating using the TAB or SHIFT+TAB keys, or activating a control on the page that automatically sets focus to the dialog box. When the Virtual Cursor is restricted, both speech and braille will only navigate content in the dialog box until restriction is disabled. The Virtual Cursor will be automatically unrestricted if you use the TAB or SHIFT+TAB keys to move focus away from the dialog box, or you perform an action in the dialog box that causes focus to be moved to another part of the page, or a completely new page loads.

 

You can also use the INSERT+R keystroke when focused in a web dialog box to manually toggle the Virtual Cursor between restricted and unrestricted. For instance, you may wish to unrestrict the Virtual Cursor to review page content outside of the dialog box without moving focus.

 


Note: In some web applications, surrounding page content is hidden when a dialog box is in focus, so unrestricting the Virtual Cursor to view content outside the dialog box will not always work in these situations.

 

New Speech Option as You Move the Physical Mouse Around the Screen

 

The new mouse echo feature enables JAWS to speak text under the mouse pointer as you move around the screen using a physical mouse or as you move your finger on a trackpad. If you use a refreshable braille display, text under the mouse is also shown in braille as a flash message.

 

While totally blind users may not benefit very much from this feature, there are some cases where it can be useful. For example, there may be times where someone is trying to understand the positioning of text or the layout of controls on the screen, and this could be helpful. You also may encounter applications that have controls that can not be accessed with any of the JAWS cursors and you must use the physical mouse to locate and activate them.

 

For users that have some vision, the ability to also receive speech feedback as they move the physical mouse is very useful. There are also more improvements coming for those who use both MAGic and JAWS together.

 

If you find that you struggle to keep the mouse in a straight line when moving vertically or horrizontally, press and hold the INSERT key (or CAPSLOCK key in Laptop layout) as you move the mouse in a specific direction to lock the mouse pointer to that position. For example, if you locate a menu bar or group of buttons you would like to explore, you could press and hold INSERT as you move the mouse to the right. If you accidentally move slightly up or down, the mouse pointer remains locked to the current position.

 

Mouse echo is off by default. To turn it on, open Settings Center, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file, expand the mouse echo group, and then press the SPACEBAR on Enable Mouse Echo. You can also configure the following:
•Choose whether or not JAWS interrupts speech as you move the mouse pointer over text. By default, JAWS speaks the new text moved to with the mouse regardless of what is currently being spoken.
•Specify the length of time JAWS waits before speaking the text at the location of the mouse pointer. If you move the mouse pointer away before the delay has elapsed, JAWS does not read the text. By default there is no delay which means text is read while the mouse is in motion so you do not have to pause to hear the text under the mouse.
•Select the unit of text (character, word, line, or paragraph) you want to hear when the mouse pointer pauses over text in a control. By default, JAWS reads the current line of text under the mouse. This means that if you move the mouse pointer into the document area of an application such as Microsoft Word, JAWS will read the line of text under the mouse. As you continue moving the mouse around the edit control, JAWS will read other lines from the document. If the control cannot provide the requested unit of text, then JAWS will read all of the text provided by the control. For example, if you move the mouse into the edit control of the Windows 10 Sticky Notes app, JAWS will read the entire contents of the edit field instead of the specified unit of text.
•Choose whether or not JAWS speaks descriptive information provided by the control that contains the text at the mouse pointer. This information will be spoken after the text at the mouse pointer is spoken. Note that descriptive text is not always available. The default is to not speak this information.
•Choose whether or not JAWS speaks the control type and state of the control containing the text at the mouse pointer. This information will be spoken after the text at the mouse pointer is spoken. The default is to speak control information.

 

Alternatively, the following layered keystrokes are available to control mouse echo:
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, O. Toggles mouse echo on or off.
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, C. Sets mouse echo to speak the character under the mouse pointer in controls that support navigating by units of text.
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, W. Sets mouse echo to speak the word under the mouse pointer in controls that support navigating by units of text.
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, L. Sets mouse echo to speak the line under the mouse pointer in controls that support navigating by units of text.
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, P. Sets mouse echo to speak the paragraph under the mouse pointer in controls that support navigating by units of text.
•INSERT+SPACEBAR, E, QUESTION MARK. Speaks a brief help message describing the commands in the mouse echo layer.

 


Note: When JAWS 18 and MAGic 13.1 are run together, the current mouse echo settings for MAGic will be ignored in favor of JAWS Mouse Echo speech settings. When exiting JAWS so only MAGic is running, the original mouse echo settings configured in MAGic will be used. In addition, if MAGic's Mouse Line Lock feature is enabled, the mouse line lock functionality in JAWS is disabled.

 

Improvements with JAWS Touch Support

 

JAWS 18 offers improved performance when using a touch screen device, such as the Surface Pro tablet from Microsoft, as well as tablets with smaller screens. You will experience greater accuracy and responsiveness as you perform various touch gestures including continuously moving a finger around the screen to explore. You can also now perform Windows gestures without the need to first exit JAWS. The new four-finger rotate gesture causes the next gesture to be passed directly to Windows; similar to the Pass Key Through command (INSERT+3). Performing a five-finger rotate gesture will now disable all JAWS gestures, except the four and five-finger rotate gestures, so you can use Windows gestures until you perform another five-finger rotate to reenable the JAWS gestures.

 

While this JAWS 18 public beta offers significant improvements to touch, there are still some instances where using touch is still difficult, such as typing your password on the Windows Login screen and using the ALT+TAB list to move between apps. These items, along with other issues we have identified, will be addressed in the next public beta.

 

Refer to the Overview of JAWS Touch Support document for more information and to review all the available JAWS gestures.

 

Launch JAWS on Tablets Using Hardware Buttons

 

You can configure the Windows and Volume Up buttons on a tablet to start JAWS instead of Narrator when these buttons are pressed simultaneously. This is done through the Ease of Access Center in Windows by doing the following:
1.Open the Start menu, type "ease of access", and then press ENTER to open the Ease of Access Center.
2.Navigate to the "Make Touch and Tablets Easier to Use" link and press ENTER.
3.In the Accessibility Tools combo box, select JAWS 18.
4.Choose OK, and then close the Ease of Access Center.

 

The next time you are in a situation where JAWS is not running, you can press the Windows and Volume Up buttons together to quickly launch it from anywhere in Windows. If you are on the Secure Destktop or Windows Login screen, these hardware buttons will always launch Narrator. However, once you are logged in, these buttons will now start JAWS 18.

 

Changes to Sentence Navigation Keystrokes in the Desktop Keyboard Layout

 

In the JAWS Desktop Keyboard Layout, pressing ALT+DOWN ARROW or ALT+UP ARROW moves to the next or prior sentence, or opens and closes combo boxes. In addition, some applications also use these keystrokes to perform their own specific functions which means JAWS users need to first press INSERT+3 to pass these keystrokes through to the application so they work correctly. For instance, ALT+DOWN ARROW and ALT+UP ARROW are used in the attachments area in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to open and close the list of actions you can perform with the selected attachment.

 

To avoid potential conflicts, ALT+DOWN ARROW and ALT+UP ARROW in the desktop keyboard layout will now only move by sentence in Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, the message area in Microsoft Outlook, and when using the Virtual Cursor unless focused on a combo box. If you want sentence navigation to work in other applications, you can use the Keyboard Manager to reassign the Say Next Sentence and Say Prior Sentence commands, or switch to the laptop keyboard layout and use CAPS LOCK+N and CAPS LOCK+Y to move by sentence.

 

To assign new keystrokes for sentence navigation, do the following:
1.Press INSERT+F2 and select Keyboard Manager.
2.Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default key map file.
3.Press TAB to move to the list view and locate the "SayNextSentence" script.
4.Press CTRL+A to open the Add Keystroke dialog box, press the key combination you want to use, and press ENTER. Press ENTER once more to confirm the change and return to the list view.
5.Locate the "SayPriorSentence" script.
6.Press CTRL+A to open the Add Keystroke dialog box, press the key combination you want to use, and press ENTER. Press ENTER once more to confirm the change and return to the list view, and then press ALT+F4 to close the Keyboard Manager.

Take care.
