Questions on Kodi 17.4.

Shane clark
 

Hello everyone,

Would anyone happen to possibly know, if Kodi 17.4 is accessible with Windows 10 and the screen reader that comes with Kodi? I know it's accessible with Windows 10, but when I try to install 17.3 and use it with the Kodi screen reader, every time the screen reader begin speaking, Kodi crashed. So I was just wondering if anybody may have already installed the latest version of Kodi, and tried it out?

Thanks, Shane.

Re: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

Randy Barnett <randy@...>
 

You can use windows 7 and IE for as long as the hardware you have supports it. No one is going to bother hacking your system in 2022 Win 10 will be the target at that point. well it already is. :)

I hope the developers make it so it still works in Windows 7, at least
until 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft (1/14/20), if not longer.

Subject: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

Hi all
When I had Windows 7 I always used Internet Explorer as my main browser,
though from time to time I also used Firefox a bit.

Now with Windows 10 it feels to me like Internet Explorer isn’t quite
cutting it for me anymore. It’s often slow and sluggish and it also
crashes from time to time giving all sorts of errors.

I think it’s time to try something else and switch over to that as my
primary browser.
I haven’t tried Chrome yet, but from what I understand it’s also
accessible with Jaws these days and I know Firefox is also accessible.
So my question, which of the 2 do you prefer to use and why? Which do
you find most accessible and easier to use?

Thanks

Nickus

As long as it does what you want that is great. :) Just letting peple know what is happening with each selection. Also it is an accessibility issue that is being worked around instead of fixed.

If one of my sighted employees does it with the mouse it works fine and it works fine with the virtual cursor setting so it’s good enough for me. In fact, I usually just want text without formatting and since I normally paste said text into Notepad so I can manipulate it the way I want it makes little difference since any formatting is removed anyways when you paste into Notepad.

Just so you are aware:

With the "From Virtual Cursor" setting, text is copied as plain text without formatting, pictures, and HTML attributes.

With the "Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight" setting, the text and elements you select are highlighted onscreen as you press selection keys from the keyboard just as it would
be in programs like Word Processors. The content is then copied with all formatting.

The default setting is Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight.

Chrome I smy choice also, very fast and I like the fact that if you use multiple computers as I do and I sign in to Chrome with my gmail account all settings, extensions and so o I set up on any computer also become available on all others.

I always had one issue with Chrome and that was that it was very unreliable to copy any text. Last week I spoke to FS support about something else and ended up asking the guy. He told me to open Chrome, go into the quick settings with Jaws Key+V and type the word “select” into the search box, then tab to the results.

You end up on a virtual cursor option called “Select and Copy From”, by default this is set to Full content using onscreen highlight”.

If you press the spacebar it changes to “Virtual Cursor” and if it is set to this copying works perfectly.

I still have a few sites where Chrome doesn’t work and then I go back to IE, but for the most part Chrome is very good.

I guess now with the upcoming Jaws 2018 we’ll see how good Edge support is/will become, but in my opinion browsers are like hammers to a carpenter or saws to a woodworker, you have several and use the one which works best for the particular job or, in this case, website. They are after all free, there are no problems having Chrome and Firefox installed on a Windows 10 machine in addition to IE and Edge which are there by default so why not try each for what you do and decide what works best for you.

Sieghard

IE, Firefox once in awile and chrome from time to time. I really dont like the History or bookmark layout in either Firefox or Chrome.
Also some of the sluggishness or crashing isnt IE it is Jaws and it happens with Firefox and Chrome just not as often from what people say but then again I dont have that much trouble with IE.

Re: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

 

Well, I usually want text and what good is it if I use the other setting if it doesn’t work 8 out of 10 times, before I changed it most of the time if I highlighted stuff with the virtual cursor and pressed Control+C nothing got copied. If one of my sighted employees does it with the mouse it works fine and it works fine with the virtual cursor setting so it’s good enough for me. In fact, I usually just want text without formatting and since I normally paste said text into Notepad so I can manipulate it the way I want it makes little difference since any formatting is removed anyways when you paste into Notepad.

Just so you are aware:

With the "From Virtual Cursor" setting, text is copied as plain text without formatting, pictures, and HTML attributes.

With the "Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight" setting, the text and elements you select are highlighted onscreen as you press selection keys from the keyboard just as it would
be in programs like Word Processors. The content is then copied with all formatting.

The default setting is Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight.

Chrome I smy choice also, very fast and I like the fact that if you use multiple computers as I do and I sign in to Chrome with my gmail account all settings, extensions and so o I set up on any computer also become available on all others.

I always had one issue with Chrome and that was that it was very unreliable to copy any text. Last week I spoke to FS support about something else and ended up asking the guy. He told me to open Chrome, go into the quick settings with Jaws Key+V and type the word “select” into the search box, then tab to the results.

You end up on a virtual cursor option called “Select and Copy From”, by default this is set to Full content using onscreen highlight”.

If you press the spacebar it changes to “Virtual Cursor” and if it is set to this copying works perfectly.

I still have a few sites where Chrome doesn’t work and then I go back to IE, but for the most part Chrome is very good.

I guess now with the upcoming Jaws 2018 we’ll see how good Edge support is/will become, but in my opinion browsers are like hammers to a carpenter or saws to a woodworker, you have several and use the one which works best for the particular job or, in this case, website. They are after all free, there are no problems having Chrome and Firefox installed on a Windows 10 machine in addition to IE and Edge which are there by default so why not try each for what you do and decide what works best for you.

IE, Firefox once in awile and chrome from time to time. I really dont like the History or bookmark layout in either Firefox or Chrome.
Also some of the sluggishness or crashing isnt IE it is Jaws and it happens with Firefox and Chrome just not as often from what people say but then again I dont have that much trouble with IE.

Hi

  I like IE. Chrome doesn't play nicely with Jaws 16.
