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.

I use CCleaner without a problem. All the tabs and check boxes I have found work fine. )I don't think there are any invisible ones.)

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.

Re: JFW 17 and windows 10

 

Hi,
There are some tutorials published by VFO and others which may help you in
using JAWS with Windows 10.
Regarding Edge issue: this is because JAWS (including version 18) does not
support Edge at this time.
Cheers,
Joseph

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

to read the help files in its default browser. Jaws is not reading the text

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

I do not think changing these settings will get him the results he is asking about. The information he wants from the pages he follows does not come to the notifications list now, so why will sending those notifications to email instead add the information about posts to those pages?

This is actually something I have been trying to solve myself so as to keep up with several organizations through their pages. It just seems like there must be a more efficient way then going to each of those pages regularly.

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 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,

Yes, I do like that feature. If I want to strive for more
refined writing, that list will tell me about how many times
I wrote well or so or any other word.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Hi,



I think the confusion was what the number is that follows
each word.



If a word appears 5 times in your document it will be
followed by the number 5. This is very useful to find out
what is the most common word.







Take care,

How will you know when you get there?

Those words are the words which are in that document window,
in this case, your email. If the word, John, is in the
message, once you pull up the word list press the letter J,
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
almost every day in different ways. HTH

I have never really used this word list feature. When I
press Insert+Control+W it brings up a list of items (95 in
total), some of them are things like jFW (13), Groups (11)
and so on. What does that number in parenthesis mean? Then
there are also a bunch of just random words in that list,
how did they get there, how do you assign a word? This might
be a useful feature, but I don't totally get the overall
concept.

You can set the word that you want to search for by pulling
up your word list with control/insert/W then once you assign
the word you use the letter W to find that word whenever you
want within the document or webpage.

I tried the Insert-Control-W, and it is neat the way it
brings up the words in the document. I typed in Jim, and it
took me right to the first entry with Jim, which was not my
Jim but the guy in charge of our paratransit system at one
time.

Hi: Many ways to skin a cat. I use control-insert-f, the
JAWS find. I do it without thinking, it's so ingrained by
now. Then, once you've done that, the
insert-f3 will find the next occurrence of the word. It's
particularly handy in digests. I search for subj and then, I
just use find again until I get to the one I'm interested
in.

The reason I never tried it was I couldn’t tell whether checking meant keeping an item or deleting it.

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.

site issue

Chad Brown <cbrown@...>
 

Hello all,

Wondering if anyone has used iVisions by Tyler technologies? It is a web portal to track expenses pay stubs and the like.  In my place of work we are going to start using this.

My issue is that I see a text string and am told that it has a pull down list if you hover with the mouse.

It reads just self-service to me and nothing else.

I have tried the control JAWS key and enter with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

If anyone is aware of someone at VFO who could remote in with me to explore this that would also be helpful.

Thank you.

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.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

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.
