Interesting, now that I see the message I sent Jaws reads the smile and frown emoticon I put in it, but I also put a grinning face and a face with stuckout tongue and it reads them as some strange code, but again in this reply as I am typing it if I go to the message underneath this it reads them correctly.

Quickbooks Online

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi,

 

Not too long ago I saw a post where somebody asked about Quickbooks Online. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time, but would like to know more about it now. I have been using Sage 50 for my business ever since I started 17 years ago and actually even used it before then from around the early 90's on. Of course it was called Simply Accounting before Sage 50 and I think even something else before then and in the very beginning I used it with DOS when it was Bedford Accounting.

Anyhow, I haven't updated Sage in 3 years because I was sick and tired of the cost going up every year (I used to also do Payroll so had to pay for that and it was around $600 or $700 Canadian each year). I then went to a Payroll service here in Canada called Payworks because I joined the Canadian Federation for Independent Business and got a good discount for using Payworks. All I do with them is log in online and enter each employee's hours, then since they are of course set up with respect to hourly wage, vacation pay, EI (Employment Insurance) and CPP (Canada Pension Plan) everything is done by them, each employee gets their pay automatically deposited into their bank account, Payworks does the monthly deductions each business has to pay to the government here and it's all very convenient.

Anyhow, my accountant here is a Quickbooks Pro advisor and I can get the subscription for a discount. I also like the idea of having access to my data wherever I am as this would allow me to do stuff from home or wherever and apparently the monthly subscription even includes Payroll and they can do direct deposit for about $1.50 per employee which is very reasonable.

I told him to set me up as instead of using their testdrive sample company or demo version I'd rather pay the $25 a month for one or two months and actually set up my own company and play around with it. I was just wondering if somebody here uses it, what parts of it do you use and are there scripts which make it work better. I still use Windows 7 Professional on my desktops at my store, but my laptop has Windows 10 Professional and I use the latest update of Jaws 18.

Does it work better with Internet Explorer or Firefox?

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi,
I haven’t had any luck with MWB reading anything on the screen either with the JAWS cursor or just normally.  I am quite frustrated by this, as I had a bad malware attack a few months ago and lost some files and had to reinstall everything.  I decided to purchase the program to see if that was more helpful, it was not, but fortunately it scans my machine and does what it needs to do without any prompting from me.  However, II’m not sure what I’ll do if I actually have a problem with malware.  Thanks for this information.  I appreciate it.  If you had the time sometime, maybe you could provide me with keystrokes you used to read the screen with MB.  Unfortunately, I’m not as computer literate as I would like to be, but am always willing to learn.  Thanks again.

Hello,
 
I'm trying to tell other blind users of MWB that 1.75 does not use the same
definitions as 2.2, as I was told by someone from MWB, but I'm not computer literate enough to explain the
difference. Would you please tell me if 1.75 does or does not use the same
protection definitions, & explain the differences if not? This will really
help many members of the blind community help understand your product & possibly
upgrade to the newer version, if necessary. By the way, MWB 3.0 is not accessible for us

Hello Mike,
 
Welcome to Malwarebytes support, my name is Lisa and I’ll be discussing this issue with you. Version 1.75 and 2.2.1 do use the same definitions database, but 2.2.1 includes a rootkit scanner and better / faster remediation.
 
I do realize that Jaws works really well with version 1.75, and 2.2 leaves a lot to be desired of when it comes to compatibility with screen readers, Jaws in particular.
 
Malwarebytes 3.0 is supposed to be compatible with screen readers, but what I’d like to do is install Jaws on my test machine and see for myself how well it does.
 
I’ll get back to you later this evening and relay my findings to you.

Hi All,

my reply back to them.

Lisa replied:

Hello again Mike,

I just tried Malwarebytes version 3.0.6 with Jaws version 17.0 and it is
working much better than Malwarebytes 2.2 version ever did. You might want
to install it and try it for yourself.

One warning - Jaws says 'to switch pages, press Control Tab'. You do not
need to press the Control button, just press the Tab button. Pressing the
Control button and the Tab button does nothing.

Please let me know the shortcomings you are finding with the program.

Best regards,

Lisa
Malwarebytes Customer Service

***My Reply:
Hi Lisa,

Navigating MWB 3.0 is not  the problem, but what is meant by being
accessible is doing tasks like scheduling a scan or updates, reading scan
results, telling MWB to exclude files / folders, or removing an item from
quarantine, and telling it to exclude certain items when scanning, for some
examples.  Like I say navigation is no problem for some, but it is for
others, but that is always going to be the case because there is such a vast
difference of skill sets amongst screenreader users.  It's the accessibility
that's the issue, & that's where only the more skilled / advanced users are
having some success, where the less skilled users, which is most of the
screenreader users, are having problems, so they are still using the more
accessible version of MWB 1.75.  I know different people are going to have
definitions for being able to navigate a program, & a program being
accessible, but anytime I have to work at using a program verses the program
working for me, is when I consider it not accessible for most users.  I'm
not the most skilled user, but I can get a lot of programs figured out, &
this is how I determine how accessible a program is verses being able to
navigate it.  I as well as several hundred Jaws users are very thankful that
you're taking the time, & actually using Jaws to test the program to make it
a more accessible program for the blind community because too many other
program creators just don't give a damn about us!  So, thank you thank you
very very much for your help!
Take care.

Hello,

Both of my Windows 10 versions are getting updates.I have fiber optic high speed service and no metering. The desktop is hard wired to the modem and the laptop uses WiFi.

Yesterday, the Pro version received updates. I know this because when turning on either computer,and before the desktop appears, Jaws announces:
  installing updates, do not turn off the computer

Now my Pro has the Windows 10 anniversary edition Start menu.

But still the winver is showing:
   Windows 10.0 build 10240

Maybe my versions of Windows 10 will have their support stop shortly so I will have to phone the MS support line to deal with the problem.

Go to where you can hide/show your system tray icons, make sure to
show the icon for the clock, then you can find it in the system tray,
press enter on it and select "Options" where you can then select
which tone to play and if you want to play only hourly chimes (the
default) or also half hour and quarter hour chimes.

accessible talking calendar

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hello fellow listers,

 

Has anyone ran across an accessible talking calendar app. Some other software than Actual Reminder.


Re: My Windows 10 version is not version 15 or 16 as reported on the list.

Peter Tesar
 

Hello,

Both of my Windows 10 versions are getting updates.I have fiber optic high speed service and no metering. The desktop is hard wired to the modem and the laptop uses WiFi.

Yesterday, the Pro version received updates. I know this because when turning on either computer,and before the desktop appears, Jaws announces:
  installing updates, do not turn off the computer

Now my Pro has the Windows 10 anniversary edition Start menu.

But still the winver is showing:
   Windows 10.0 build 10240

Maybe my versions of Windows 10 will have their support stop shortly so I will have to phone the MS support line to deal with the problem.

Hi,

Another possibility is that you have deferred upgrades turned on (for Pro and higher).

For future reference: the version Peter speaks of is Windows 10 RTM (aka Version 1507), which has entered end of support countdown (no more updates for consumers and businesses from March 26, 2017; the exception is LTSB).

Cheers,

Many sub-dialogs in Outlook, various versions, have been hit-and-miss over the years. I don't think it's a bug with JAWS, as much as it's MS tinkering with their UI and making it more or less difficult to do things. Try using the JAWS cursor when you're looking for that signature dialog.

Subject: Re: Need Tips For Accessing Google Docs Folder

 

Hi,

I use Google Docs a lot, so I can really help you.

First of all, you need to use Google Drive, because Google Docs are in Google Drive. First, you have to set up an account to use Google Drive. It is a cloud based service where you get 15 Gigs of storage to upload stuff to Google Drive. It works a lot like Drop Box, or One drive. Here is the link to go to set up an account for yourself for Google Drive:

www.drive.google.com

After you set up your account, you need to download the program or Google drive folder to your computer. Once you download the Google Drive folder to your computer, you can just paste the files in that folder, and they will be uploaded to Google Drive. Now, you need to do the same thing for google docs, which you can get to in Google Drive. You need to download the program or Google Docs folder to your computer. This is huge, because when people send you a Google doc, it will appear in that Google Docs folder on your computer, and you can open it. However, you have to be able to work with Google Docs in the on line Google Docs site, which is gotten to in Google Drive. Google Drive and Google Docs are almost one in the same, because you have to be in Google Drive to open a Google Docs window. Once you open a Google Doc window from Google drive, you can type, edit, and work with that document just like using a word processor on your computer. You can use JAWS to share with other people, you can work on the document with others, and so on. To do this, you have to use a lot of key commands that are in Google Drive and Google Docs. To learn all of this, I suggest you go to the Freedom Scientific page, even if you use NVDA instead of JAWS. The concepts are the same what ever screen reader you are using. There are four webinares /tutorials about using Google Docs on the Freedom Scientific web site that are really good. Here is the freedom Scientific web site URL:

www.freedomscientific.com

If you type a Google Search for Google Docs, you will get results which are tutorials that Google has done on using Google Docs with a screen reader. They are good audio tutorials as well. Just do a Google search to get and download those tutorials. That should get you started. If you do all of this, please let us know how we can direct you from there.

Take care, and I hope you can get Google Drive set up first.

Hello, everyone.

 

An organization that I am now volunteering for apparently sends out documents via google docs.

 

Does anyone have some basic tips for accessing these documents?

 

I can get to the link to open the folder in which the documents are stored, but can’t seem to get any further than this.

 

I do have a personal g-mail account, but I would think I shouldn’t have to log in to get these documents, since they are being sent to me and many other people, some of whom surely don’t have g-mail accounts.

 

I’m obviously quite new to this, so would appreciate any hints or tips.

 

I’m using Jaws 17, and Windows 7 here.  I can use either Internet Explorer or Firefox as my browser.

 

Thank you!

Re: system tray not displaying all turned on icons in windows 10

David Moore
 

Hi all,

Here is what you do. Press Windows+I to open the settings app. Then, tab once to the list of settings catagories, and right arrow to personalization group and press enter. Now, arrow down to taskbar and press enter. Tab to where it says turn system icons on or off link and press enter on that link. Then, tab once, and you are on a button that says turn on all icons in the notification area? press the space bar until you hear button checked. If it just says button, it is not checked. Press space until it says button checked, and tab across and uncheck any icons you do not want showing in the notification area. Remember, the system tray is now called the notification area. That is how you turn on all system icons showing up there.

For some reason, the system on my windows 10 machine only displays 2 icons, i.e. the network state and the volume.  This in spite that I turned on all items under the system tray.  This is when I use  the insert-f11 command.

Hi,
I haven’t had any luck with MWB reading anything on the screen either with the JAWS cursor or just normally.  I am quite frustrated by this, as I had a bad malware attack a few months ago and lost some files and had to reinstall everything.  I decided to purchase the program to see if that was more helpful, it was not, but fortunately it scans my machine and does what it needs to do without any prompting from me.  However, II’m not sure what I’ll do if I actually have a problem with malware.  Thanks for this information.  I appreciate it.  If you had the time sometime, maybe you could provide me with keystrokes you used to read the screen with MB.  Unfortunately, I’m not as computer literate as I would like to be, but am always willing to learn.  Thanks again.

difference. Would you please tell me if 1.75 does or does not use the same

help many members of the blind community help understand your product & possibly

Hello Mike,
 
Welcome to Malwarebytes support, my name is Lisa and I’ll be discussing this issue with you. Version 1.75 and 2.2.1 do use the same definitions database, but 2.2.1 includes a rootkit scanner and better / faster remediation.
 
I do realize that Jaws works really well with version 1.75, and 2.2 leaves a lot to be desired of when it comes to compatibility with screen readers, Jaws in particular.
 
Malwarebytes 3.0 is supposed to be compatible with screen readers, but what I’d like to do is install Jaws on my test machine and see for myself how well it does.
 
I’ll get back to you later this evening and relay my findings to you.
