I have used it with no problems. Just download the latest version from Amazon’s site, and be sure to use the latest version of jaws 18.

Hi All,   Does anyone have experience with reading Kindle books with JAWS 18?

I found Kindle for PC accessibility Installer version 1.14.43034 but am not sure if this is the most current version.

Off list is fine but any tips on the procedure will be much appreciated.  Thanks, Mitch

I will try and dig up the steps later today. I had a student
who had Kendle books for some school assignments and I was
able to find a converter that would turn them into MS Word
documents, keep links, headers and so on. Really sweet
converter.

My experience is that very few of the books I have purchased allow the
new works-with-jaws feature set. So I am likely sticking with using
calibre to convert kindle books to something I can easily use.

Hi Judith,

Another option is to select the JAWS icon from your desktop (if you have one) by pressing spacebar (don’t open it), press your applications key and select “pin to taskbar); at this point you should be able to alt-tab to JAWS as well. I always use insert J so I do not understand why yours is not working properly.

Hello Judith:

 

Wat you call the JAWS Home Page, is in fact, the JAWS window of JAWS on your computer.

 

So, when you press, INSERT+J, from anywhere within Windows or any program, focus should be given to the JAWS window of the version of JFW you are using. When you use this command, JAWS should say:

 

JAWS context Menu, Options submenu

 

Home pages, are generally referred too as the initial page of a web site.

Re: internet explorer question

 

This could be because of how they are implemented on the website. I find on some websites I can press enter on a combo box and then arrow through the options, others work better if I open them with Alt+Up arrow, some I have come across open but close each time you arrow down to the next option etc. If you find a particular website works well with Firefox and/or chrome compared to IE then what’s wrong with using either one of these browsers. I figure IE will go away eventually so I may as well get used to something newer and more modern.

Another option is to select the JAWS icon from your desktop (if you have one) by pressing spacebar (don’t open it), press your applications key and select “pin to taskbar); at this point you should be able to alt-tab to JAWS as well. I always use insert J so I do not understand why yours is not working properly.

So, when you press, INSERT+J, from anywhere within Windows or any program, focus should be given to the JAWS window of the version of JFW you are using. When you use this command, JAWS should say:
 
JAWS context Menu, Options submenu
 
Home pages, are generally referred too as the initial page of a web site.

Subject: accessing jaws homepage

I just got off the phone with Freedom.  I want to access the jaws homepage and they told me to hit insert plus J which sounds right.  However when I do this all I get is my version of jaws with no options.  Yes, my computer is in the process of being replaced but for now it’s the only game in town.  Is there another way to access the home page or options?  Thanks, Judit0068

You mean besides typing the URL?   Guess you could place it in your favorites, or create a shortcut.

Re: How to navigate Amazon Prime Video with JAWS?

Controls are not spoken for prime video. In order to make it do anything, you have to turn the virtual cursor off right as the video starts. With any luck, you will be where you need to be in the window.

 

Space plays and pauses the video.

The arrows rewind and fast-forward it.

 

Now, if you are not where you should be, you will need to tab until JAWS speaks nothing. That way you won’t be on a link when the space bar is used.

HI All,

 

I am finally checking out the Amazon Prime Video service, a friend having sent me a link.  Does someone have JAWS instructions on how to control the video?  So far all I have been able to figure out is how to start the video.  I would also be interested in a broader tutorial on using Amazon Video with JAWS, giving me steps on searching and general navigation.  Any guidance is much appreciated.
