Re: navigating through tables

 

Lauren,

            You may or may not have success with having JAWS announce fields correctly depending on how the MS-Word document (usually in the form of a fill-in form) or the web page is coded.  A truly accessible MS-Word form using form fields should have help text coded for each field, with Status Bar help text being announced when you land in the field to enter data and F1 help text if something might require additional explanation.  Web pages have similar attributes, but I think it's the alt-text that gets read on entry into a given form field.

             If you are able to share the web address of the volunteermatch webpage where you're trying to fill out a form I can see what NVDA has to say as I traverse the fields to see if there are any "dead zones" as far as announcing name/purpose of the field.  The page may simply not be coded correctly to be accessible.

             Also, if you have a URL for a specific Word form that you're having trouble with please post it as well.

navigating through tables

Lauren Snyder
 

Hi:

 

I am running Windows 10th anniversary with Jaws 17, IE11 and Office 2016. When I opened a file in Word where I need to fill out a form, Jaws reads a table and says the row. However, it does not read all the contents of that table. When I went online just now to complete a form on volunteermatch to register for instance, Jaws also does not read everything in a table. How can I get Jaws to read all the elements so I know I am typing in the correct info where it needs to do? T

Han

K you. Bes

Panning issues in notepad++

Daniel Montalvo
 

Hello all,


I am having issues when panning with my Focus 40 Blue braille display and JAWS in Notepad++ What I do to reproduce the issue is the following.


  • Open the program, Notepad++
  • Write something that is more than forty characters (or the dimensions of your braille display) so that the whole line of code does not fit into the display and panning is necessary to get to read the text in the whole line.
  • Once you have done this, try and pan right by using your preferred method. I am using the key on the display that is marked with an arrow right sign. This button is placed to the right of the front panel of the Focus.

Jaws is supposed to present the rest of the text in the display but, instead, what happens to me is that such text appears for a second or so and then it pans left on its own so that the text of the beginning of the code line is shown. If I press the panning button once more, the same happens all over again.
Has anybody come across this issue as well? If so, is Freedom Scientific aware of this? This not only happens to Notepad++ but it also happens an application called TWBlue which is a twitter client. However, I guess it will be much easier to reproduce this in a well-known aplication such as Notepad++.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for this,I’m going to work on the Flexible Web. I’m sure it could be helpful. I end up going to the same web sites for the most part. Joe

Starting Flexible Web

 

To use Flexible Web do the following:

 

list of 3 items

1. Open a Web page you want to customize in Internet Explorer or Firefox.

2. Move the Virtual PC Cursor to the page element you want to hide, or from where you want to start reading when the page first loads.

3. Activate the Flexible Web wizard by pressing the layered keystroke INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by X. Alternatively, press INSERT+F2 to open the Run JAWS

Manager dialog box, then choose Flexible Web.

list end

 

Temporary Customization

 

Through several easy-to-follow steps, The Flexible Web wizard that opens provides you with two options:

 

list of 2 items

• Hide

• Start reading at the selected element

list end

 

The wizard then guides you through the process of creating a temporary customization by giving you various choices about the selected element and how you

want to hide it or from where exactly to start reading. Once the customization has been made, it is immediately applied to the page. For instance, if you

choose to hide all frames containing advertisements, you will not see any advertisements when navigating the page after making this temporary customization.

 

If you are not happy with how a customization is working, you can open the Flexible Web wizard to undo the last customization you made. When you return

to the page, you can choose a different element or the same one, and then reactivate the Flexible Web wizard to retry the customization again perhaps with

different criteria. For example, in the case of hiding those advertisement frames mentioned earlier, you probably want to hide all of them, not just the

first one on the page. The wizard will provide you with choices about whether to hide just the first one or all of them.

 

Saving Rules

 

You can create as many customizations for a page as you want. Once you have created one or more customizations, you can save them as a rule, which is applied

every time you load the particular page or site. To indicate that a rule has been applied to a page, JAWS plays a sound after the page loads. Rules can

be applied to the current Web page, entire Web site, or globally for all Web sites. Otherwise, customizations are only temporary and are lost as soon as

you navigate away from the current Web page or close the browser. If you have made temporary customizations and you attempt to navigate to another page

or close the browser, a dialog box opens asking if you want to save your customizations as a rule.

Goodmorning,

 

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 10 Anniversary edition and JAWS 17. I would like to learn how to read newspaper articles on the wweb more efficiently. If I click on a New York Times Article or any other large news site I end up fighting my way through tons of advertisements and other distractions while trying to read the article. It is the same with my hometown newspaper site. Where should I go to learn how to be more efficient?

Re: How can I learn to better use internet with JAWS?

Joe Thibault <thibault.joe@...>
 

Sharon,

 

I’ll try to explain. I use ChickenNugget for a twitter client. I follow amongst other things, a few newspapers and TV stations. They will tweet out a headline I might find interesting so I click on it to go to the article on their web site. Here is where it gets complicated.

 

The web site will open. I usually use heading navigation to find the beginning of the article. Often typing a 1 a couple of times will get me there. Now I will down arrow a bunch of times to get past all the twitter, snap chat, like don’t like links to the beginning of the article. At this point I can down arrow to read the first paragraph or two only to be interrupted by 5, 10, or more lines of advertisement, which I have to down arrow through because if I don’t I will miss the next paragraph of the article. Now I can read another paragraph or two only to find another 5, 10 or more lines of advertisement with my article hidden in their midst. This repeats until I finally get through the article I probably have lost interest in by now.

 

How do these add blockers work? How do you use them? Thanks for your interest. I thought I was a mid level JAWS user, I’ve been doing it for years, but lately I have been getting more and more frustrated by all the clutter on these news web sites.

Thanks,

Joe Thibault

Hi Joe!  If you’re using JAWS, you should be able to go under the help menu, and find the training section.  There is a good training module called Surfs-up Surfing the Internet with JAWS and Magic.  This will really help you navigate web pages much better.  It’s helped me tremendously.
