When I try to use google I enter what I am looking for in the search box and press enter. I then get a I’m feeling lucky and some suggested results. Is there a keystroke to get directly to the navigation mode where all results are?

Which FileZilla interface "Theme" is most accessible with JAWS?

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I am new to FileZilla.  In its Edit > Settings > Interface menu, there are a few different “themes” that can be selected.  Right now, I am using the “default” theme.  However, there are other choices such as “classic” or “minimal.”  Which “theme” yields the best accessibility with JAWS?  Are there any other tricks I should know to increase accessibility?

 

Thanks,

Richard


Re: Speeding up the JAWS starting time?

Hello,

I wonder if it would be in your JAWS startup wizard. As you go into there with insert j for the JAWS window, and alt h for the help menue before uparrowing to startup wizard, go to the page with your start JAWS at stuff and probably check the box that says “Start JAWS at log-on screen.” This might work ut don’t know; never done it. I always use the combobox which says has the start JAWS after log-on for thing. That, to me, seems the easier way, but there’s more than one way to do stuff, I guess. Try it and see if it doesn’t work.

I just tried reading this without using the Numb Lock, and I
pressed the Insert on the Six Pack and the Down Arrow on the

I have noticed JAWS can be slowed down by other programs
starting at start-up. If you have another screen reader
starting too, that could be a problem. Some antivirus
programs slow it as well, and some printer software .can
too.

Is there a Hotkey that any of you know of for switching between lines with Cisco IP Connect.  One can perform reasonably with this application but I have two lines and there’s this nice graphical thing to ‘click’ on but no hotkey.

Re: Can I separate the arrow keys from the number pad?

Hi Shannon!

 

Yes you can.  This is called "differentiate."  Press JAWSKey+6 to go to the settings center, and then type "differentiate" into the search field, and then review your options.  Be sure to be aware whether you are making changes to the default or a specific application's settings file.

Sounds good, but make darn sure you know what you’re unchecking, or have a boot disk handy.  JAWS is pretty high on my list last time I looked; I’d have to go in and see what’s ahead of it.

Hi David,

 

You can try the following, it worked for me:

 

Note: The steps below were performed running Windows 7 & JAWS versions 15 thru 18.  These steps won't work with Windows 8 or 10, & why they won't is below my steps.

For those of you that have Jaws set to start at the Windows log-in screen, but it doesn't, this might work for you.  I looked in, msconfig, & found that JAWS Freedom Scientific wasn't at the top of the list on the Start-up Page / Tab, so this is what I did.
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the run dialog.
2. Type, *msconfig*, without the stars, & press enter.
3. Press, control + tab, until you get to the, Start-up Page / Tab.
4. I arrowed down the list, & unchecked any items above, JAWS Freedom Scientific, on the Start-up Page / Tab.
Note: Only uncheck the items / programs above JAWS Freedom Scientific, & nothing else.  Pay close attention to what you uncheck because you are going to recheck these items / programs shortly.
5. Tab to the, Okay, button, press the spacebar, & tab 1 time to, Restart, & press enter to restart your computer.
6. Once your computer is booted up repeat steps 1 thru 3, & you will notice that JAWS Freedom Scientific is now at the top of the list.
7. Now, arrow down the list of items / programs on the Start-up Page / Tab, check the items / programs that you unchecked previously, & repeat step #5.
Now Jaws should start on the Windows log-in screen when your computer starts.  I did the above steps on 4 different computers, both desktop & lattop, &I'm not going to say it works everytime, but it sure works most of the time, which I can say is a damn site better than before I followed the above steps.

Take care.

In my 10, the items in the StartUp tab seem to be sorted by name; not the
order of running.  Also in my 10, I have an Enable/Disable button as opposed
to a check/uncheck items.  So, I'd have to do more research to determine the

Re: JAWS &T M I

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Settings center has a lot of stuff. To go there, press JAWS-F2, hit the letter S three times. Once in, tab over once to get to the tree view, and start cursoring down.  In a classic tree view, you just browse with the cursor, opening what you want to see.  JAWS-f2 reveals several things besides the Settings center.

 

As I told someone earlier, you don’t have to go at it as if you’re killing snakes; hopefully no one has you on deadline.  Just explore and enjoy discovering the newfound power and flexibility offered by JAWS.  You might start by going to and reading through the manuals, or the MP3 files included with the program.

try going to the very top of the screen. there is usually the option for screen readers to turn off quick view or something like this.
once this is clicked you will be able to get to the list of results.
but if you have i e or firefox to delete your browseing history these settings will be erased and you would have to do this every time you use google.

another thing you may not know. if you use shift enter on the links it will open another window when it goes to the web pages. this way you can close this page and you will still be on your google list of results.

Re: Can I separate the arrow keys from the number pad?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

May I interject?  If I understand correctly, what you’re describing is default behavior.  There are minor tweaks you can make (for instance the function of the two insert keys), and the type of keyboard you’re using—desktop, laptop, Kenesis (See the startup menu under Help).

 

There’s a lot you can do, but there’s no need to swallow the whole load in one sitting.  Read the included documentation, and play around with the various features.  There’s no reason this can’t be fun.

Hello Shannon, like I told Kevin I knew this was there but I have never played with it I downloaded the other voices

Yes, this is exactly what I wanted to know. I use the T arrow keys all the time just to check out the text I am on or up and down but often need access to that mouse too. So separating these is very cool otherwise I have to constantly keep checking and or changing the perspective of the information.

Kevin just posted another observation.

He said that separating the keys still uses the Jaws voice to report is that true?

I haven’t made the change yet.

All these cursers and voices are cool but sort of confusing. At the moment I have played with the pc voice and it is different from all the other choices. In fact they are all different from each other. I thought it might be  easier to tell “Who” is giving feedback.

I am sort of confused by why this voice is being used and that one is not?

Example in Outlook. I am arrowing up and down through the list of messages. I used Nathan as the PC voice but when I get to a message I have not read yet the Keyboard voice Alison is reporting the status of Unread?  And she is also telling me the index of the item at the very last of each message even if the message has been read?

I don’t understand that.

So if Kevin is right and the T arrow keys are going to review at the PC level they are going to talk with the JAWS voice who I have set to Samantha?

 

So this is still going to get confusing?

 

Thanks

Yes you can separate the extended keys from the numpad keys using jaws.

You first need to open the jaws settings sinter by pressing the jaws key plus the number 6 at the same time and then

if you want to make this the default, press control shift and the letter d at the same time.

Then go down until you hear jaws say, keyboard closed, then right arrow to open it, then go down until

you hear jaws say separate extended keys from numpad and press space bar to check it.

there may be quite a few settings in the settings sinter you may want to change, if you don’t understand what something means just press the tab key and jaws will explain it to you.

When you are dun just press alt f4 to get out of it and then press the space bar to save your settings.

I hope this helps, if someone knows another way please let me know. I hope this is what you wanted to know.

I believe you can set the cursor you want and then turn on the numlock for numbers.  When you are ready to change your Jaws keys, turn off the numpad.

Hello,

I would like to know if I can separate the arrow keys from the number pad? I want the PC curser and the virtual pc curser to use the inverted T arrow keys and have the various JAWS curser, Invisible curser, and the Touch curser to use the number pad keys.

Can I do that and if so how do I do it?

Thanks

Shannon

Hi again.

 

This is strange.  In the in box of Outlook 2016, when I activate the JAWS cursor and use the extended arrow keys to navigate, the JAWS cursor voice is heard.  If I open a message and read it with the extended arrow keys, all is well.

 

Now for the really weird part.  If I reply to a message and have the AWS cursor active, I can’t read the message I’m typing.  If I switch to the PC cursor all works well.  I’m using Outlook 2016.  Go figure.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.
