Jaws and Recent Versions of Thunderbird

Moshe Segal
 

I was just auto-upgraded to a later version of Thunderbird, and the items in the messages listviews of all mailboxes became invisible. I exited and reloaded Thunderbird, tried it with an earlier version of Jaws, and even rebooted, but to no avail. I finally reverted to an erlier version, and discovered that the problem did not exist with version 49.x or earlier. Has anyone else found this problem, and is there a way around it? Thanks
Moshe

My Asus Zenbook also has just one 3.5mm plug, so far it has recognized all headsets or external speakers I plugged in. Whenever I plug something in a window pops up asking me what device I just plugged in and I can select from headset, microphone, external speaker etc. Only once I select will the sound switch.

I have a headset with two 3.5mm plugs (one for the speakers, one for the mic), my laptop only has the speakers jack. The only things I have to make sure of is that I plug in the speakers and not the mic and make sure that the audio volume is not muted (the headset and on-board audio have separate mixers and so one can be muted while the other is not).

I don’t know if it’s because of the other headset having a boom mic,
but when I plug that one in, there’s no audio what so ever.

I telecommunicate for my business and need both the mic and audio
function for Skype and whatnot. This is the first machine I’ve had
where there is only one jack port. I have to imagine that this has to
work. The headset in particular has only one jack instead of the
regular two jacks in the past, I would use an adaptor to combine both
jacks into one that I would then plug into the back of a tower.

Subject: Getting laptop to recognize headset with traditional jack
instead of USB



Hello list,

So, I got this laptop that has fewer USB ports than my old one. Thus,
my having to optimize my USB usage. It does have a single jack for
headphones and mic. I figured it would just be a case of plugging the
headset jack and having audio go through the headphones. Of course,
nothing can be so easy…

I’m not getting any sound. Jaws or otherwise. My sighted wife says
that when it is plugged in, the volume indicator does switch
reflecting something also, the microphone indicator does fluctuate
when I speak.

It’s been many years since I’ve used a headset with a jack and in this
case, it’s only one jack instead of the regular two jacks (One for
headset and the other for microphone).

Am I in fact missing a step to enable audio? Tried this both on a
Dell laptop that I initially bought and which I’m returning due to an
unrelated issue and an HP Envy X360 Touch screen machine that I’m still setting up.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think that the problem is within the update. Seems that those of us using ThunderBird are having this issue.

when it finished updating, did JAWS announce that there was a problem
loading page? I just pressed control+w. that should do away with the

ever since an earlier version, maybe 41 or so, I was never able to find
what tweaks I can do to Thunderbird or Firefox so I can use the JAWS

Once you have selected the picture by checking the check box next to it, activate the JAWS Touch Cursor, RIGHT ARROW to the Insert button, and press ENTER to insert the image. The Insert button is some type of JavaScript control that dynamically appears once you have checked an image check box but which is not appearing in the JAWS Virtual Buffer. To return to the PC cursor from the Touch cursor, press the PC Cursor command twice quickly. The keys to activate the cursors depend on which keyboard layout you are using…

 

The only descriptive information which JAWS can provide you is the image size and URL. Bing doesn’t have some type of artificial intelligence facility built in to it which would provide a description of the actual picture content…

Maria Kristic
 

I will give you an example with a pie chart...my general comments should apply to any chart, though. I am using a different setup from yours (I am using JAWS 18, Windows 10, Office 2016), so you may have to Google something if my instructions are different from what happens on your end...

Basically, the steps in creating the chart are to set up the data properly in the sheet, insert the chart, then format the elements you want by selecting them and choosing format options from the context menu.

Data Arrangement: You want your categories in the first column and then each of your data series in columns to the right of that. The top row of your chart data contains your series labels; the category column should have no label.

For example, here is my data table for a pie chart example. Notice that row 1 column 1 is blank (i.e., no category label). My series is called "Percentage of Leader Dogs" (i.e., series label is in row 1, column 2). My categories (the dog breeds) go down column 1, and the values for my categories (i.e., the percentages) go down column 2.

Percentage of Leader Dogs
Lab 75%
Golden 10%
Shepherd 5%
Lab/Golden 5%

Insert The Chart: Insert tab of the ribbon > select the type you want from the Chart group.

In my pie chart example, Insert > Insert Pie or Doughnut Chart > Pie. Once you select the major chart category (i.e., "Pie or Doughnut" above), the chart types show in a grid; you may find it easier to navigate this grid and select a chart type using the Touch Cursor.

Quickly Access the Chart: Press CTRL+SHIFT+O to display the list of objects, and select your chart by pressing ENTER on it. Press CTRL+INSERT+C to display information about the chart in the Virtual Viewer. Or, once the chart is selected, you can also use the Touch Cursor to explore the chart elements.

Format Chart Elements: With the chart selected, go to the Format contextual tab of the ribbon in the Chart Tools portion of the ribbon that has appeared now that you have selected the chart. In other words, you can press ALT to activate the ribbon tabs, RIGHT ARROW several times...past the static ribbon tabs that are always there...you will first hear "Chart Tools, Design tab" as you keep arrowing right, arrow right once more to hear "Format tab". Then, TAB to get in to the Elements list, UP/DOWN ARROW to choose what you want, and press ENTER to select it. That chart element is now selected; press the APPLICATIONS key to access the menu of things you can do on this element. Some things, like the "Edit Text" option for changing a chart title, are edit fields; other things, like "Format...", "add Trendline...", and other items, open panes to which you F6/SHIFT+F6 to gain focus and then adjust items in them.

Back to my pie chart example, the title is currently blank when the chart is inserted. In the Format contextual ribbon tab of the Chart Tools group, select Chart Title in the Elements list, and press ENTER. The chart title is now selected. Press the APPLICATIONS key, and select "Edit Text". This edit field has accessibility issues, so you won't get too much feedback in it, but you can edit it. Once you have selected the "Edit Text" item, JAWS won't indicate that you are in an edit field, but you are. Press CTRL+END to get to the bottom of the text, and hit BACKSPACE several times to make sure all text is deleted (you want the default text of "Chart Title" not to be there). Type in the new title, and when done typing, activate the APPLICATIONS menu, and select the "Exit Edit Text" option to exit edit mode. To quickly check if your new title is there, press CTRL+SHIFT+O to select an object; JAWS will now identify the chart by the title you gave. If you need to edit the title further, repeat the above process, and type it in from scratch again.

Adding Axis Labels: This doesn't apply to pie charts, but in chart types like bar charts that you mention below, you would want to add axis titles to make the data more understandable. To do this, in the Chart Tools Design contextual tab of the ribbon that appears when a chart is selected, press SPACE on the "Add Element" item, and select Axis Titles > [AxisTitleYouWantToAdd]. Repeat the process to add the label for the other axis. Once you have added the two labels for the vertical and horizontal axes, follow the procedure as described above to edit them in the same way as you would edit a chart title (i.e., select the label from the Chart Elements list of the Format contextual ribbon tab, activate the Context Menu with APPLICATIONS key and select "Edit Text", etc.) To check that your axis title is there, press CTRL+SHIFT+O to select objects, select the chart, and press CTRL+INSERT+C to display the chart in the Virtual Viewer; you will be told the labels that you put in as you move through the information.

Hope this helps get you started.

Regards,
Maria

Subject: Getting laptop to recognize headset with traditional jack instead of USB

 

Hello list,

So, I got this laptop that has fewer USB ports than my old one. Thus, my having to optimize my USB usage. It does have a single jack for headphones and mic. I figured it would just be a case of plugging the headset jack and having audio go through the headphones. Of course, nothing can be so easy…

I’m not getting any sound. Jaws or otherwise. My sighted wife says that when it is plugged in, the volume indicator does switch reflecting something also, the microphone indicator does fluctuate when I speak.

It’s been many years since I’ve used a headset with a jack and in this case, it’s only one jack instead of the regular two jacks (One for headset and the other for microphone).

Am I in fact missing a step to enable audio?  Tried this both on a Dell laptop that I initially bought and which I’m returning due to an unrelated issue and an HP Envy X360 Touch screen machine that I’m still setting up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Inserting online pictures in office 2016

Maria Kristic
 

Once you have selected the picture by checking the check box next to it, activate the JAWS Touch Cursor, RIGHT ARROW to the Insert button, and press ENTER to insert the image. The Insert button is some type of JavaScript control that dynamically appears once you have checked an image check box but which is not appearing in the JAWS Virtual Buffer. To return to the PC cursor from the Touch cursor, press the PC Cursor command twice quickly. The keys to activate the cursors depend on which keyboard layout you are using…

 

The only descriptive information which JAWS can provide you is the image size and URL. Bing doesn’t have some type of artificial intelligence facility built in to it which would provide a description of the actual picture content…

Maria

Re: thunderbird update gone bad

Mario
 

it seems to be a JAWS16 issue because NVDA can nav and read the messages
in the list. it's strange because upon pressing tab from the folder
list, JAWS says list view but nothing else even though there are
messages in the Inbox. I wonder if a window class reassign or a custom
highlight assign would fix the issue, but I never did either and don't
want to potentially mess up by incorrectly doing either.

can someone giv me steps on how to do either? I'm not sure which one is
more likely to fix the issue.

Re: Different first page Word2016

Maria Kristic
 

As for accomplishing the page numbering goals, the "Different First Page" literally just enables you to change the first page header/footer; it does not affect further headers/footers down. What you need to do to employ different numbering styles in the document is to create different sections, unlink the headers/footers of your sections from those of the prior sections, and then set up page numbering for each section how you would like it. See the Microsoft article at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-different-page-numbers-or-number-formats-to-different-sections-bb4da2bd-1597-4b0c-9e91-620615ed8c05. That article is written with sighted users in mind, but between it and the below quoted message, I think you will be able to follow and adapt it to keyboard use...

Maria

Hello,
Below are some instructions from FS.
Running Header and Page Number
list of 16 items
1. First, press ALT+N to move to the Insert tab of the ribbon.
2. Press H to activate the Header drop down button, and then E to choose Edit Header. Focus goes to the empty header edit area.
3. Press ALT+JH to move to the Header and Footer Tools Design tab of the ribbon, and then press A to check the Different First Page check box. Focus again returns to the empty header edit area 4. Press ALT+N to move to the Insert tab of the ribbon again.
5. Next, press H for Header, and press DOWN ARROW to select Blank 3 Columns. Focus moves back to the header edit area at the top of the page. This time, three different fields for text are inserted with the words [Type text] at the left justified, center, and right justified parts of the header edit area.
The cursor is just to the left of the first field.
6. Press RIGHT ARROW. The first field is now selected. You can verify this by pressing the read current control keystroke, INSERT+TAB.
7. Press RIGHT ARROW to move focus out of the field to the space after it. JAWS says, "out of form field."
8. Next, press RIGHT ARROW to move to the beginning of the second [Type text] field, and then select it by pressing RIGHT ARROW again.
9. Press the DEL key to delete this middle text field. The cursor remains in the center of the header, but the field is now gone. JAWS reports, "out of form field" again.
10. Press RIGHT ARROW twice more to move to and then select the third [Type text] field.
11. Next, press ALT+JH to move to the Header & Footer Tools Design tab of the ribbon, followed by N U to activate the Page Number button in the Header & Footer group of the lower ribbon. A submenu opens.
12. Press C to choose Current Position, and another submenu opens with focus on the first item, Plain Number 1.
13. Press ENTER to select Plain Number 1. The menus close, and the [Type text] field is now replaced with the number one.
14. Press HOME to move to the beginning of the header area. This also selects the left aligned [Type text] field.
15. Type the following, with the actual running header in all caps. The running header must be 50 characters or less. It is OK to shorten it and have a longer title for the paper in the center of the page. Type: Running head: TITLE OF PAPER. In my example, I have the following: Running head: READING COMPREHENSION USING SYNTHESIZED SPEECH 16. If necessary, select the entire line of the header and check the font and size to make sure it matches the body text you are using.
list end

NOTE: As you type text in the left text placeholder, the number on the right side may wrap down to the next line. After you have typed your running head, press the DEL key to remove any extra spaces and bring the number one back on the same line as the rest of the text. You may need to use the JAWS cursor to do this, since a Say Line with the PC cursor reads both lines of text in the header.

list of 1 items
17. When you are finished, press ESC to get out of edit mode for the header text. Focus returns to the main document area.
list end

Hello,
I am attempting to have a different first page in my document where page 2 will be page 1 etc. with Jaws18 and Word2016. How do I go about doing this? I tried the steps in the article from Microsoft for inserting a page number and then I pressed alt q to search for different first page and pressed enter but it seems that after I selected different first page, and then used my up and down arrow keys, JAWS still read the same page 2. Also, is utilizing my up and down arrow keys the best means of confirming this information? How can I confirm that the page number is right aligned at the top edge? I saw some information that alt delete should be able to give me this knowledge?
Thank you in advance for any responses
