Hi:

 

Is there a way you can see the codes like you used in the very old versions of Word so you can know how to correct formatting issues so you can know how to make sure the document is formatted independently while using Jaws 18 and Word 2016?

 

Thank you.

Michelle's Home Emails
 

Hi Everyone

Michelle Stevens here,

Is there a tutorial to improve skills with Jaws running Windows 10?

At present am going through a steep learning process, new screen reader, Laptop and Windows 10 from windows 7.

At present am having problems jaws reading the default windows help pages in edge. Though my friend made Firefox my default browser. Window 10 still want to read the help files in its default browser. Jaws is not reading the text on the screen.

When reading the same thing on NVDA it reads it quite well.

Any ideas

Michelle's Home Emails
 

Hi there Jes

Michelle Stevens here,

I am going through the same processes with my new Lenovo. Jaws hot keys are conflicting with the default hot keys.

You will need sighted assistance to use the bios . Start the laptop in bios configurations disable hotkeys exit and save changes. If you want to use the computer's hot keys you can press the fn key which is near the left control key.

Be aware each brand of laptop may be different.

I am quite happy with Lenovo so far so good (smiles.)

My laptop before I bought my current Asus Zenbook was an Acer with one of the first generation I5 processors. I had it for 5 years and actually still have it and use it a bit at my store for doing things like scanning inventory, but it was a fantastic laptop and at the time cost about $700 here in Canada. I did replace the original 640 Gb hard drive with an SSD and with that it booted up super fast and I got about 8 or 9 hours of battery life which at the time blew me away as it was a 15.6 inch screen and it also had a DVD drive. It also has a nice keyboard with full numeric pad and I have not a bad thing to say about it. Even now after 5 years I still get 3 to 4 hours of battery depending on what I do.

Pretty much most of them will do and it comes down to personal preference with respect to how big you want it to be, do you want a laptop that has a numeric pad etc. I personally like to use Jaws with the numeric pad and therefore whenever I look for a laptop I usually look at 15.6 inch models as quite a few of them do have a numeric keypad on the right.
One other consideration is memory, make sure you get a laptop that has at least 8 Gb of RAM, I usually even get one with 16 Gb or upgrade it to 16 Gb.
I personally like laptops which have an SSD (solid state drive) instead of a traditional hard drive. If you need lots of storage than that may not be an option because while SSD prices have come down a lot, beyond around 500 Gb they are still quite expensive. Also, if you are looking for a relatively inexpensive laptop then you probably won't find one that has a decent size SSD.


Good luck,
Sieghard

If a word appears 5 times in your document it will be

Those words are the words which are in that document window,

the name john will show up in the list because the name John
is in the document. Press inter to select the name John as
your Word, now when you are in the body of the message and
press the letter W it will take you to every place where the
word or name John is. The reason you hear things like JFW is
because that tag is in all of the messages from our list
messages and if you pull up the word list in our messages
you will get it. I am going to type the word Pat five times,
pull up your word list and press the letter P until you hear
pat, then enter, every time you press the letter W you will
be brought to the context where the word/name Pat is. You
see, pat, ha, more Pat and so on. I use this word list

Mike,

         I am using CCleaner free and always have been.  I cannot answer the accessibility question with any precision since I haven't attempted to operate CCleaner via screen reader.  I believe that others who do have stated that it is either completely accessible or "accessible enough" that the common tasks can be performed as needed.

         The one thing one has to be careful about is what options under the Cleaner function one checks.  For instance, many people have no idea that "MRUs" are Most Recently Used lists and, if you choose to delete these, your jump lists (as they're more often called) and recent files lists in various applications get nuked as part of the cleanup.

Hi Pablo,

 

OK, got it, when I tried it I wasn’t in editing mode as in when I was composing, replying or forwarding an email. Now I realized that F4 is just another keystroke for Control+F, but as I said, it only works when you are writing a message and not when you are reading one. Here Jaws Key+Control+F will still allow you to find things and just as Gudrun said, th Jaws Find option is one I use all the time especially on web pages. If I know there should be a download button or a link with a certain word I more often use Jaws Find then the links list.

Re: links not working on web sites

Brian and Mike,
 
I've used both the free and paid versions of CCleaner. Both are very accessible, I'm happy to report. I especially like how easily I can work with the startup section, enabling, disabling, or removing startup processes. CCleaner does not require me to reboot after this process, which I find time-saving. OF course, I suspect that a reboot would eventually be needed to complete the disabling process.
 
It's a very good application, and it also has a monitoring feature, which even works with the free version.

Subject: Re: links not working on web sites

Mike,

         I am using CCleaner free and always have been.  I cannot answer the accessibility question with any precision since I haven't attempted to operate CCleaner via screen reader.  I believe that others who do have stated that it is either completely accessible or "accessible enough" that the common tasks can be performed as needed.

         The one thing one has to be careful about is what options under the Cleaner function one checks.  For instance, many people have no idea that "MRUs" are Most Recently Used lists and, if you choose to delete these, your jump lists (as they're more often called) and recent files lists in various applications get nuked as part of the cleanup.

Hello Lauren,  I just gave an assignment to a student yesterday on formatting in Word along with exercise files. If you would like I can put them into Google drive for you and you can go over the lesson. It is very precise.

Hi:

 

Is there a way you can see the codes like you used in the very old versions of Word so you can know how to correct formatting issues so you can know how to make sure the document is formatted independently while using Jaws 18 and Word 2016?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Lauren

Are you using the C Cleaner free version, or the premium version?

Is it completely JAWS accessible?

This sounds like something I should look into.

What is being described, and Ted did a good job with "plain gunked up," is browser cache corruption.   Your browsing history is not related to browser cache in any meaningful way.  It's just a compiled list of the URLs/links you've visited, so clearing browsing history itself doesn't generally help at all.

Every web browser has its own method of clearing browser cache and you can find what it is for yours by doing a web search on the name of the browser you're using along with "clear cache."

Personally, I find a number of the "in browser" cache clearing processes very slow.  I have been using Piriform's CCleaner utility for years now and one of the cleanup things I have it do is to clear browser cache.  I run it about once a month or so, or anytime I start getting very irregular behavior in a browser that can't be explained (and that hasn't happened in a very long while since I've been routinely cleaning browser cache).
