Subject: JAWS 18 and Calculator

 

I saw a number of posts on this list earlier about the calculator.  Indeed, in Windows 10, it is hidden.  With a little sighted assistance, however, we found it and pinned it to the task bar, which was a good solution.

And, a huge thanks to the discussion about using the Windows Key and numbers keys to jump to applications.  I had forgotten about those commands entirely.  Now, I use them all the time.  They are fantastic!

Well, I installed JAWS 18 yesterday.  ALAS!  The calculator that worked so well in JAWS 17 appears to be completely broken in JAWS 18 or, if not broken, is implemented so badly as to be useless.

It is so good to be able to keep old versions of JAWS around so that when Freedom Scientific screws up, as they did with calculator, one can go back to a prior version.  The calculator works great in JAWS 17.  It seems unusable in JAWS 18.

It's not Research It that's the problem: It's the
Wunderground web site. JAWS 18 does again show weather
conditions, but not the forecast ... because Wunderground no
longer shows the forecast. if anyone know a good weather
site to replace Wunderground, I would love to hear about it.

Just found an easier approach...

Cursor inside table
Then tap separately: Alt A V B

Don't need to do all those other keystrokes to select.

Try this.

Position cursor inside the table.
Select the table by tapping separately: Alt j l k t
Then tap separately: Alt a v b
Then use the dialog

In IE Go to options then advanced and uncheck everything you dont want to load under the multimedia heading. If you want to play something then you may have to go back and recheck the option you turned off...


Re: Preventing videos/ads from playing

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Brian, what I think he wants to block is music and other media which appear on some websites. This media which runs when the page is loaded makes it impossible to hear the screen reader’s voice over the other media.

Scott,

         If you're looking to blacklist sites, there are a number of different ways to do this.  Your best bet is probably to look into add-ons/extensions for the browser or browsers you use for site blacklisting.

         If what you're trying to block is actually an ad then I'd use an ad blocker extension such as Adblock Plus in your browser or browsers.

         If you want something that blocks a given website for all browsers you use you can add an entry to your hosts file using 127.0.0.1 as the IP address and then it cannot be opened.  See here or here for additional information.

Re: Installing Vocalizer Expressive 2

Soronel Haetir
 

You also need to enable the vocalizer expressive synthesizer in the
jaws' synthesizer and braille manager. It is found on the jaws'
utility menu (jaws+j then u then b). You need to do this even if you
have already enabled vocalizer direct or real speak voices.

I have restarted JAWS 3 times, and JAWS sees none of the new synthesizers.
Any ideas?

Update on F12 Issue in Office

Les Kriegler <kriegler@...>
 

Hi All,

I received a call from Microsoft Support on the problem I am having using
the F12 key to save files. It turns out there is a conflict between the
Office product and Malware Bytes which caused the Office applications to
crash. The problem has been reported to Malware Bytes and hopefully it will
be resolved in an update soon. In the meantime, one can quit Malware Bytes
by going into the System Tray with Insert-F11, arrow down to Malware Bytes,
press Alt-R for the Mouse Right click Option and choose Quit Malware Bytes.
Then after working in Office and exiting out, re-run Malware Bytes to have
one's system protected again. A small nuisance, but a good short-term
work-around.

Les
