I am using JAWS 18 and Windows 7. What are the keystrokes and steps to “safe eject” a flash drive?

 

Many thanks.

Subject: Re: question regarding Skype

 

I would download the Skype for desktop and then go to dlee.org/Skype

Once on the page pull up the links list and go to the bottom of the links list with control/end at the bottom of the links list arrow up two times and press enter, you will download the latest scripts. Install the scripts after you install Skype. After Skype is installed you want to turn on the accessibility features, key stroke, Alt/T for the tools menu, then O for option, go to the bottom of the list and you will be on the accessibility group, tab into it and check the box. Shift tab back out and arrow up once and you will be on the shortcut/hotkey group, you can tap into it and see the Skype built in hotkeys.

Once you have the Skype scripts installed you can use the following hotkeys

Control 1 for contacts list, you can type a contact or arrow through the list.

Alt 1 will take you to the most recent instant message, alt/2 to the next, alt/3 and so on.

Control/3 will let you see the most recent messages.

Control/4 will get your JAWS focus back in the Instant message edit box if you lose focus for some reason. Alt/1 twice will take you into the IM window and you can arrow around the message and copy text if needed.

There are more within the scripts, but these are the main ones that I use.

I hope these help.

Good evening list.  First, I am running windows ten home edition and jaws 18.  I am not familiar with skype so my question is do I have to download the desktop app or can I use the one that comes with windows ten.  Any help would be appreciated.

Elaine,

          The only information I can find that's vaguely related to part of this message, the SentinelILM bad handle part, relates to Delphi, which gets used behind the scenes for a lot of coding tasks.  Clearly something that's running on your system "burped" as I like to state it and you received an error message that's utterly cryptic to an end user (and probably would be to a developer, too, given the lack of detail).

           I would not be too terribly concerned unless this becomes a recurring issue and then you'd have to chase down what is running on your system that keeps encountering the same problem.

Re: Cisco IP Communicator?

Lee, Amanda * <amanda.lee@...>
 

As I indicated, we use IP Communicator with Microsoft Link.  If you navigate into where IP Communicator is under programs, there is a very accessible manual which contains a section which provides built-in shortcut keys.  I would copy them here but I’m sure you can find them or write me offline and I will send them to you.  I’m not sure why FDA isn’t using Jabber either.  We also use Webex.  Microsoft Link isn’t the most easy to navigate either but one can get most of what they need and there are also keyboard commands available.

Re: Slightly OT: installing, upgrading and repairing Windows systems from bootable media

 

Hi,
The answer is a resounding yes, as Windows 10 Creators Update will indeed
let you use Narrator during first moments of Windows Setup. Take a look at
the following Win10 forum discussion:

This is slightly off-topic for the list, but I'm not aware of a better forum
(suggestions welcome if you object to my posting here).

What's the state of the art in the accessibility of bootable Windows images
from Microsoft that can be used to repair, reinstall or upgrade a Windows
installation that won't boot?

In Mac OS and Linux, it has been possible to install and upgrade using a
screen reader for a very long time, but apparently that's still a challenge
in the Microsoft ecosystem.

I've read that Microsoft Accessibility are progressing toward making
Narrator run during Windows installation and upgrade. There's also,
apparently, an NVDA-based solution, but I'm not acquainted with the details.

If anyone here knows what the state of the art solution is, I would be
interested.

I am well aware that JAWS won't run in Microsoft's installation/upgrade
environment, but it will obviously run once the system is
installed/repaired.

Re: anyone know what's happening?

Ken and all, the Research It utility for getting the weather stats has
been broken since last Saturday the 11th. there's nothing wrong with the
feature. either the site that is used to get the weather info is down or
it has changed some coding that isn't okay with Research It, such as
access controls.
hope it gets fixed soon.

in the meantime... you could try going to weather.gov and tinkering
around to figure out how to get the info you're wanting.

as an alternative, you can also try http://www.weatherstreet.com/states/

Yesterday, I had a chance to talk to the director of communications in our IT Department at my firm.  I asked about IP Communicator.  He explained it, in effect, is an obsolete application that Cisco used, sometimes, for training.  It places a graphical replication of the desk phone on the screen, and one can then either click on the buttons to dial or perform other functions or convert the numeric keypad on the computer into a phone keypad.

When Cisco acquired Jabber, it ceased further development of IP Communicator.

It may be that your employer has, or can get, a device license, meaning that, for the same license fee perhaps already paid for the phone Apps, including IP Communicator, you can get Jabber.  As I have mentioned previously, Jabber, with the JAWS scripts, works pretty well.  Jabber is a complete communications package, allowing phone calling, instant messaging, and email (integrates with Outlook).  Although I have not tried it yet, my IT Department guy also said I can call directly from text in, for example, an email message – just like on my iPhone.

I’ll try that one today.

Elaine,

          The only information I can find that's vaguely related to part of this message, the SentinelILM bad handle part, relates to Delphi, which gets used behind the scenes for a lot of coding tasks.  Clearly something that's running on your system "burped" as I like to state it and you received an error message that's utterly cryptic to an end user (and probably would be to a developer, too, given the lack of detail).

           I would not be too terribly concerned unless this becomes a recurring issue and then you'd have to chase down what is running on your system that keeps encountering the same problem.

Bad handle?

Elaine Young <hidden_spring@...>
 

Hi,

Today while I was away from my computer it must have been busy. When I came back to it I had an "information" box open that said:


"Information. Graphic 59. SentinelLM. Bad handle."


and it had an OK button. What is that all about? I never saw anything like it before and was clueless. Since I seemed to have no choice, I clicked OK. Can anyone explain this to me?


Elaine

Re: How To Set A Particular Web Page As Your Default Web Page In Internet Explorer

Thanks, Mike.

 

I actually did it via Brian’s instructions, but these instructions are a good second choice.

 

Will save for future reference, since it’s always good to have multiple ways of doing something like this in case one does not work.

Hi Tom,

 

Another way is this:

1. Open the Run dialogue with the keystroke, Windows key + R, type in the URL / website, & press enter to take you to the website.

2. Now, with your website of choice open press, Alt + T, for tools, press the letter, O, for options, & you'll be on the General page.

3. Tab once or twice to, Use Current button, & press the spacebar.

4. Tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, & tab to, Okay, & press enter.

This will now be your default homepage.

Take care.

Tom,

Once IE is open go to the Tools Menu (ALT+T), Internet Options (O), then in the General Tab that opens as the first in the Internet Options Dialog you should already be sitting in the edit box for Home Page.  You can enter a URL, or a list of URLs with an Enter entered between each one, to set the page or pages that open as your default page(s) when IE is started.

Got it, Brian. … Thanks!

 

Just hadn’t done this for a while, and was having a memory lapse.

Re: Cisco IP Communicator?

Michael Mote
 

Hi James!  I have limited experience using Cisco IP Communicator just like you.  In my experience though, I have had to use another application in conjunction with communicator to make it work.  In the menus, you can set up things like audio settings, but after that, it’s virtually useless for a screen reader user.  I’ve been told that the Cisco IP communicator looks very much like a desk phone.  In order for us to use it, we need another application like the cisco Desktop agent to make things work.  I hope I’m helping you with this.

I think here's where the confusion happens. I installed IP Communicator by itself, and after I got it set up with what I think is my login info, JAWS doesn't read anything. Do I need to install something else, like Link for example, to actually make it accessible?

I’ll add that the installation of IP Communicator is used in conjunction with Microsoft Link meaning that the Interface is actually launched via Link so here is the difference.  I remember with Jabber, that it would tie-in with Cisco telephones as IP Communicator does as well.  You can use IP Communicator to make and receive calls and the ringtone is heard via one’s headset as well.  I like how the sessions work too in that I can copy information and paste it elsewhere for reference and such. Or click on a link.  It is also possible for someone to observe you navigate through web content and such.  I’m learning a Helpdesk application so it was very useful when my co-worker could see where I was navigating through the websites which we utilize.

Jabber is almost impossible to use without Doug Lee’s scripts.  It keeps getting better, but the scripts really are necessary for significant parts of the product’s functionality.

The Jabber App on my iPhone is more accessible, but still not 100%.

James,

I have a pretty good relationship with technical support at Cisco, though pretty much entirely with respect to Cisco Jabber.

I know I have Cisco communicator on my desktop, but I have no idea what it is used for.

I probably already know the answer, but is there such a thing as a JAWS script for Cisco IP Communicator? And if  so, where might I go about getting my hands on it?

Re: Jaws announces the same web page link differently when in IE11 or Firefox

Poppa Bear <heavens4real@...>
 

That can be typical on some websites when switching back and forth between browsers. I have all of my students make sure that they have at least two browsers installed. I have some college webpages that won’t even read some links or buttons in IE and then FF is the solution and the same can be for the opposite.

Subject: Jaws announces the same web page link differently when in IE11 or Firefox?x

 

Hello list,

I’m using the latest version of Jaws 18 and Windows 10.

 

Until now, I was using IE11 with the BestBuy Canada web site.

I just made a purchase using Firefox. The link to get to the shopping cart is labeled differently in FireFox then from what it is in IE11.

 

In Ie11, Jaws announces the second link after the search box as:

    link cart

 

    In FireFox, Jaws announces the same link as:

    link GG 1

 

I also noticed that Jaws announces the first link differently in Ie11 from FireFox.

That first link after the search box is the submit search link.

 

In FireFox, refreshing the screen does not change anything.

 

I thought that the screen reader used the alt text field in the HTML code. Why does Jaws announce differently the same link in the same web page in IE11 from Firefox?

 

Can anyone explain what is happening? Thank you.

 

Peter T.
