If a step by step was just posted, can someone send it to me?

I stupidly deleted the message if there was one.

Hi,

 

OK, all you guys have convinced me to start using Chrome. Is there a way to get my IE Favorites into Chrome? A step by step would be helpful.

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

I am using Excel 2013 on a Windows 7 computer.  I receive Outload emails with Excel attachments.  I cannot open them.  They are also in protected mode.  How can I enable them so I can save them and open them so I can read the contents?  When I click on them I get a sound like I have opened them, but no soap.  tia

Very wierd issues with JAWS 18 under bootcamp on mac

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,

I’m currently using JAWS as my main screenreader.

I’m having some very weird issues.

They include:

Even though  JAWS is set not to, it still reads indentation info, as well as all punctuation.

It also loses focus quite frequently.

 

How can I fix tese issues?

 

Thanks,

Jessica


Re: Question about uninstalling an older version of JAWS

Hi Mike,

 

If I remember correctly, after JAWS17 any JAWS installation from version 15 and earlier will not allow version 17 and later  to run correctly. It is best and recommended to remove version 12completely. If you remove shared components it will affect the other versions; therefore, leave the shared components.

Hi, I just downloaded and installed J 18.0. So now I have J12, J16 and J18 on my laptop. I want to uninstall my J12. So when I went into programs and opened up J16, there was an option to uninstall. Then there was two options; to just uninstall Jaws, or to uninstall Jaws and shared components. Seeing as I have J18 on my laptop; should I select to uninstall just J12 or select to uninstall J12 and shared components?

Hello,

 

During the past few days, when I enter on a link from a web site for a specific page, sometimes I get a fairly long message saying something about “the security of this site cannot be verified”.  When this happens I cannot get it to go away; when I press alt + f4 or try to go back to the previous page Jaws just keeps repeating this message.  This morning it happened again and I kept pressing alt + f4 about six or seven times and finally it got me off the internet.

 

Sometimes this occurs and sometimes not.  The web sites I’m speaking of are ones that I’ve used regularly for a long time without any problems …… This does not happen every time and does not happen on all web sites.

 

One of the web sites is accuweather.com …… I go to this site, read the three day local forecast, and then click on extended forecast”.

 

Again, this problem does not occur every time and it does happen on some other web sites.  I’m using Jaws 18, Windows 10, and IE 11.  Does anybody have any thoughts on why this is happening?  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

It may be just IE 11.
Have you tried Mozilla FireFox?
I use it exclusively these days. IE ends up doing too many odd things along with with eating CPU resources.

With the exception of these few issues I described Chrome works beautifully with Jaws and in my opinion is much better than IE and I also prefer it over Firefox.

There really isn't more I can say, you really should just download it and use it, after all it's free and as I said, it's much better to have two or three tools in the browser toolbox instead f just one.

I would say for 90% of the browsing I do Chrome is great and definitely a lot faster when it comes to loading pages and so on that IE ever was.

I know I'm not David and I am posting this to the list since others might want to hear it too.

Chrome works very well with Jaws for the most part. It is much faster than IE and I prefer it over Firefox for every-day use.

One thing which does not work well with Crhome is to create PDF documents from web pages using the print function and virtual PDF printers such as the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer which is available in Windows 10 or in Windows 7 I use Nuance Power PDF. If you use one of these to create a PPDF from IE oir Firefox the resulting PDF is accessible and Jaws can read it. If you do the same thing from Chrome the PDF is an image and only accessible by using Convenient OCR.

The other issue I found is that for me on a few websites Chrome does not read some content which IE and Firefox reads. For example, if I log into my Mastercard account and look at my transaction history, Chrome will read the column headings like transaction date, posting date, description and the amount, but it then skips right over the actual transactions which visually are on the screen and which IE and Firefox has no problems reading and which it does so beautrifully using table navigation commands..

Pretty much everything else Chrome does very nicely and, as I said, very quickly and a few websites definitely work much better with Chrome than they do with IE.

I think that currently browsers are like a hammer or a saw for a carpenter, you have a few different ones in your toolbox and while you may have a favourite there are situations where another one is better.

Since IE is on all Windows computers anyways you just have to install Chrome and, if you want, Firefox, try them out and set whichever one you like best as your default and then use the others as needed. They won't interfere with each other so it definitely doesn't hurt to have them available.

If you use Windows 10 you also have Edge on your computer and if you are a Jaws user you will be able to try it out fairly soon, if you also use NVDA you can already use it although I think for most of us Chrome or IE is still much more familiar.

To prime the pump a bit more—I know that, years ago, there were complaints about Chrome not meshing well with JAWS, and I wondered if most of the bugs have since been ironed out. Please continue to send comments—I’m interested.

I know I'm not David and I am posting this to the list since others might want to hear it too.

Chrome works very well with Jaws for the most part. It is much faster than IE and I prefer it over Firefox for every-day use.

One thing which does not work well with Crhome is to create PDF documents from web pages using the print function and virtual PDF printers such as the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer which is available in Windows 10 or in Windows 7 I use Nuance Power PDF. If you use one of these to create a PPDF from IE oir Firefox the resulting PDF is accessible and Jaws can read it. If you do the same thing from Chrome the PDF is an image and only accessible by using Convenient OCR.

The other issue I found is that for me on a few websites Chrome does not read some content which IE and Firefox reads. For example, if I log into my Mastercard account and look at my transaction history, Chrome will read the column headings like transaction date, posting date, description and the amount, but it then skips right over the actual transactions which visually are on the screen and which IE and Firefox has no problems reading and which it does so beautrifully using table navigation commands..

Pretty much everything else Chrome does very nicely and, as I said, very quickly and a few websites definitely work much better with Chrome than they do with IE.

I think that currently browsers are like a hammer or a saw for a carpenter, you have a few different ones in your toolbox and while you may have a favourite there are situations where another one is better.

Since IE is on all Windows computers anyways you just have to install Chrome and, if you want, Firefox, try them out and set whichever one you like best as your default and then use the others as needed. They won't interfere with each other so it definitely doesn't hurt to have them available.

If you use Windows 10 you also have Edge on your computer and if you are a Jaws user you will be able to try it out fairly soon, if you also use NVDA you can already use it although I think for most of us Chrome or IE is still much more familiar.

David, could you email me off-list and describe your experiences with Chrome? I’m on I.E., Win.7,  now, and wonder how far Chrome has come for screen-reader users; every so often, I see the little message about switching, but don’t know enough about the pros/cons. Thanks!

Based on my current experience with Office 365, Windows 7, and Jaws 18, you
should have no major problems with Outlook 2016 within the Office 365
package, as long as you get the version that downloads directly onto your
computer, as opposed to the web-based version.

Hi Group,
My organisation is moving to office 365 and I have been told we will start
using 365 mail in September. I currently use Outlook 16. Is it the same?
From the email I received I am thinking it is quite different.
I would love to hear from anyone knowing about this.
Thanks,
Jodie
