A JAWS accessible internet speed test?

Mike Ulrich <mulrich@...>
 

Good morning and Sianora 2016!

I’m sure that ain’t spelled right, but Spell Check had no idea of what I was trying to type out!

 

Anyways, does anyone know of a fully accessible and easily understandable website where I can check my current internet speed?

 

Thanks & Happy 2017!......Mike

Very interesting, it doesn’t do this for me. I just tried again to make sure, I pressed the Windows key and typed www.google.com and Google came up in Internet Explorer.

Following these directions however doesn't seem to fix the issue altogether. I can activate links just fine, and even use the Windows run dialog box, but if I press the windows key and type in an internet address, it will still activate with Edge.

Re: beware of malware bytes

I have been using the latest paid version of Malware bytes with JAWS 17 with no difficulties. There were problems with JAWS and an older version but for the most part those were corrected with a newer version. Using it with JAWS does take getting used to as it involves using the JAWS cursor at times and Malware Bytes could be a bit more detailed with their explanations.

Hi Group,
Marvin was just talking about Malware Bytes.  About a month ago, my Windows 7 PC got some Malware on it.  I have a virus checker and I thought that was all I needed.  Anyway, I lost a lot of files and had to reinstall windows.  I had someone run Malware Bytes for me because they said it was the best program to run, but it didn’t seem to work well with JAWS.  What do you recommend I would use that would work well with JAWS and that would also be effective?

Hi. if you use malware bytes, be aware, some versions, can mess up your system. This is what happened to my mum, she has a old Toshiba satellite running windows vista home, and she installed malware bytes, from my 8 gb usb stick, and then she did a quick scan, removed some items, then shut down, when she booted up her machine, later on that day, she plugged in the mouse, after to trying to do any thing, the arrow disappears, machine locks up, like windows explorer, lock up not responding,a white screen, all icons go, not connected to the internet. So the only way, was when she got the message, windows could not shut down properly, she went into safe mode, went to control panel, programs and feature, uinstalled malware bytes 2.2 , and then shutdown and restarted, had normal use of her machine, so I have removed it on my machine, only have super anti spyware free, avg free, and doing a windows defender scan at the moment,  for windows 10. So, try Spybot and destroy, capersky, but does need sighted help as the 2017 installer, asks you for a capture. Read this blog on david goldfield’s site, and he uses nvda, as his main screen reader. Never used that.

Sogiving a warning, malware bytes, maybe give you malware, and lock up and emss your machine, for us screen reader users, safe mode, no audio drivers, no speech.

Marvin. periodically

Because doing this involves Cortana, and Cortana is in a forced marriage with Edge and the Bing search engine.  If you know the web address you want to go to and your preferred browser is not open then open it first and type it in there.

Hi Bill,
 
Although I don't run Win 10, here some notes I've saved for when I do regarding your query:
From: Carlos
1. Press Windows key+I.
 
2. Select
"System"
and press Enter.
 
3. Select
"Default Apps"
and press Enter.
 
4. Tab to
"Web Browser"
and press Enter.
 
5. Tab until you find
"Internet Explorer"
and press Enter.  Internet Explorer should now be configured as the default browser.
Carlos
 
From: jim
Press windows key+I, for settings.
Press enter on system.
arrow down to default apps, press enter.
Tab 7 times, across and make your changes to various default programs.
You will want to use insert+tab, to repeat some controls...
Jim
 
From: Ann Medlar
Thanks, your method easier than Microsoft.
Had to change to small icons.
They said control panel, default program, set programs as default, tab to
list of programs arrow down to IE tab to default.
I'll save your method.
I need to set up another PC next month.  Hope to keep good notes.
Ann
Take care.

Hi Margaret,

There are times when you want to know if a Jaws setting is
causing a problem or if the problem is a computer or program
problem. This option also deactivates anything that might
have been added such as scripts that may have been added.
These might have to be deactivated at times to trouble shoot
a problem. In short, it puts Jaws back to the way it was
out of the box, with absolutely no modifications or tweaks.
This is can tell you if it's a Jaws problem or something
else.

Howdy Y'all,



For those that might not know this, & something I just
learned today:

If you ever need to run J17 latest version, J17.0.2727, or
J18 in default mode you can do this using the Layered
Keystrokes feature. Hold down the, Insert / Jaws key, then
press the spacebar, to open, Layered Keystrokes, now release
both keys, & press the letter, Z. This will put Jaws in
default settings mode. This series of keystrokes is a
toggle, so invoke them again to go back to running Jaws with
your settings.

Note: This only works with the latest version of J17 & J18
all versions. This will not work with any J17 versions
prior to J17.0.2727.



Take care.

Are you using JAWS? If so, You just hit JAWS Key 2, and keep hitting it
until you get your choice, character, word, character and word or none. You
can set that for all programs if you want to. An easy way is to hit JAWS
Key-V.
Keep pressing Down Arrow until you get typing echo choices.
That will permanently set it to your choice of settings.
Then, if for any reason you would like to have a temporary change you have
the option of JAWS Key-2.
