No no! please don't use jaws with IE 9, because it doesn't announce progress
bar, even if you check the status bar from the view menu.

Decided to ask this before I do anything.

I am using JAWS 13 (Latest update) and want to know if anybody is
using
IE9 and if there are any problems with it before I install it.

Thanks

Re: OT: How to delete huge number of messages from gmail inboxat once using JAWS

Cristóbal
 

If you're on the the Gmail site itself while in standard view, there is a
select all option that will either delete the email messages you have on the
screen at one time or all the messages in the inbox. I have my Gmail account
set to 100 messages at a time. It's tricky getting to and selecting the
select all option though. You have to get into a funky combo box/listview
and use the Jaws cursor a bit. Also, I've never been able to delete all my
emails at one time, but rather only page by page. My sighted wife lends me a
hand when I want to select and delete all the emails in the inbox rather
than page by page. I don't remember the steps off hand for getting to the
select all option, but it's not terribly hard if you want to try it yourself
or perhaps someone else can provide the step by step instructions.

If you're using Outlook, there's a checkbox option in the email
configuration settings that you can check and it will delete the emails from
the server when you delete them from your Outlook inbox. I'm using Outlook
2003, so I can't speak as to where it may be located in other versions on
the email client.

If you do what you suggest for your "all mail folder", though, I think those messages get deleted not only in "all mail", but also in whatever additional folders they might be stored as well, including the in-box. ... Am I correct, based on your experience?

I did this once, and lost some e-mails I had hoped to save.

Ketan,

How would you do this using Google's interface, whether you are using JAWS
or not? Is there a "select all" button perhaps that you can use? I hope
someone using Google Mail can step in and give you exact instructions
because I think the solution does not depend on how JAWS interacts, but
rather what the Google Mail interface offers you as a user.

Tina,

Sure defragging is no problem. Also finding your disk space is
easy. Both
are accessed the same way:

1. Windows Explorer (Windows+E)

A. To find the amount of space, use the JAWS cursor
Arrow down and you will hear information about the hard drive,
the amount of
space used and the amount of space still available.
PC cursor when you're done.

2. Windows Explorer (Windows+E)
Arrow to your C: drive and press Alt+Enter
B. Defrag.
Ctrl+Tab to the next pane
Then tab to the defrag button and press Enter
Tab to the Analyze button and wait until it's done.
If defrag is recommended you can read this by searching with the
JAWS
cursor.
If recommended, then tab to the start button and press Enter.
Go have some coffee or tea, read a book, etc. It could take
several hours or
several minutes, depending on how much defragging is necessary.
When its done you will see a dialog with a report button and a
Close button.

Wow, there's more to this than I would have thought. Here I was

since my computer keeps telling me that it's low on disc space.
Where
can I find the information about how big the hard disc is and how
much
of the space is free? As it happens, I jumped from 5 to 11 and am
hoping to upgrade to 13 as soon as I get a chance to sit down and
do
it. Unfortunately, I tend to get into more trouble than I can get
myself out of when I get too adventurous, so perhaps I'd better
leave
well enough alone on this one, then, and find some other programs
and
files that can go. I'm glad I asked!!! Btw, is defragging a
screen
reader friendly process? Other people have done it for me, but
I'm
wondering if I can do it myself.

Re: landmark regions

Tom Lange
 

When I use JAWS and Internet Explorer 8, I keep finding these things called
landmark regions. I didn't see this in earlier versions of JAWS. Is this a
JAWS or Internet Explorer thing?
Neither, actually. It's a recent development in web page construction that helps to add additional structure to web pages. Think of a landmark as a reference point on a web page, something akin to the old-style divisions, which weren't widely used but which separated pages into different parts into which a web page developer could put content that was logically-related. To move between landmarks, you can press the semicolon key (;), or colon (shift+semicolon) to move backwards. If you want to see how landmarks work, visit the main Bookshare page at

www.bookshare.org

You'll find a Banner Landmark, under which you'll find a link to the home page and a log-in form. Then you'll see the Main landmark, which has a lot of text about the Bookshare service. You'll then find a Navigation landmark, under which you'll find links to different parts of the web site.

Landmarks can be very useful. Recently I've found that they work well for Yahoo mail, which has been a pain in the tail to navigate, but landmarks helped.

. You can also read about ARIA landmarks at the Surf's Up Internet tutorial, in the training headquarters section of the FS web site.

Hope this helps.

Subject: Dongle:Jaws license converting to home edition from professionaledition repeatedly.


All,
I am using Jaws 13’s latest built with dongle for my authorization on windows 7 64 Bit Pro.
After release of Jaws 13, for many days things were good. However, thereafter suddenly the activation manager started coming when Jaws was started.
I did clean uninstall and reinstall of Jaws, removed the sentinal system driver and super pro / ultra pro from device manager, reinstalled freedomscientific products including open book, but nothing worked.
When issue was brought to the notice of freedomscientific technical support, we came to know that my Jaws is getting converted to home edition instead of professional edition again and again. After conversations with support team, I was given an authorization file (.dath) to update my dongle again. For few days it worked well, but again the problem persisted.
Despite letting the support know this fact, the only solution which is given to me so far is to use the update file whenever any such issue occurs.
And to sum it up we haven’t able to crack the problem.
My problem is that I have my law semester exams from 22nd November, and I can’t take any risk. As I am the first student of Mumbai University who has been allowed to use computer for his exams, I have to produce the results to the best of my capacity in order to insure that such facility can be extended to all blind students of our university and in other universities of the country.
And since I have the dongle, so if it fails during exams, I would even not be able to use it on an alternative system. My dealer however has come to a conclusion that it is my system problem, so the last option is to format my system. However my system is completely clean, no problems whatsoever with any other program exists so far. What my dealer’s reasoning is that since it is only happening with you, that is why FS has not worked on it in order to get it fixed for every version. He has assured me to look into my problem though.
Contrary to this, FS has been mentioning in the enhancements about authorization and upgrade problems.
I shall be highly obliged if one can provide me any solution of this problem at the earliest possible.
Regards
Amar Jain.

Dongle:Jaws license converting to home edition from professional edition repeatedly.

Amar Jain
 

All,
I am using Jaws 13’s latest built with dongle for my authorization on windows 7 64 Bit Pro.
After release of Jaws 13, for many days things were good. However, thereafter suddenly the activation manager started coming when Jaws was started.
I did clean uninstall and reinstall of Jaws, removed the sentinal system driver and super pro / ultra pro from device manager, reinstalled freedomscientific products including open book, but nothing worked.
When issue was brought to the notice of freedomscientific technical support, we came to know that my Jaws is getting converted to home edition instead of professional edition again and again. After conversations with support team, I was given an authorization file (.dath) to update my dongle again. For few days it worked well, but again the problem persisted.
Despite letting the support know this fact, the only solution which is given to me so far is to use the update file whenever any such issue occurs.
And to sum it up we haven’t able to crack the problem.
My problem is that I have my law semester exams from 22nd November, and I can’t take any risk. As I am the first student of Mumbai University who has been allowed to use computer for his exams, I have to produce the results to the best of my capacity in order to insure that such facility can be extended to all blind students of our university and in other universities of the country.
And since I have the dongle, so if it fails during exams, I would even not be able to use it on an alternative system. My dealer however has come to a conclusion that it is my system problem, so the last option is to format my system. However my system is completely clean, no problems whatsoever with any other program exists so far. What my dealer’s reasoning is that since it is only happening with you, that is why FS has not worked on it in order to get it fixed for every version. He has assured me to look into my problem though.
Contrary to this, FS has been mentioning in the enhancements about authorization and upgrade problems.
I shall be highly obliged if one can provide me any solution of this problem at the earliest possible.
Regards
Amar Jain.

Re: Google Music accessibility

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Google will never make a screen reader better than Jaws. They won't take my repeated suggestions to allow a blind person to be on their accessibility teem and they think they can create another language from what we use now. (Right arrows don't go right and up and down arrows don't really move by line... Do blind people use anything of Google's other than Gmail and the search engine?
I wonder why they don't use what's already out there in regard to screen readers rather than try to develop their own? Because Jaws despite what some might say is still far better than Sappi or the windows text to speech application and is miles beyond what any sighted person could develop.
I would just like to see the big corporations like Google and Facebook get a good screen reader user to make accessible all applications from the start.
Wonder why Freedom Scientific and Google haven't gotten together to create accessible applications? Personally I would like to see that happening rather than another release of Jaws.
thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Re: landmark regions

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

it's neither. As far as I know it's part of the ARIA specification.
aria = accessible rich internet applications
Press semicolon to jump to each landmark on a page and SHIFT+semicolon to jump back.
