Hey guys,

I'm running the latest jfw. I can not save a document. I had to log
into social security to get a varification letter. I clicked on save,
and it said,
alert, firefox prevented this site from opening a popup window. So
firefox obviously wants to open a popup but it's not allowing it. I
have to get past this. Any idea how? I have to get this letter.

Thanks,

Re: major firefox problem

 

Just as in any browser you have to allow pop ups, I don't use Firefox a lot, but here is I think how it works after taking a quick look:
Go to Tools > Options
In the drop-down list at the top go to "Content"
Find the "Block Pop-Ups" checkbox which should be checked by default.
Now you can either uncheck it temporarily and then check it again or you can arrow right or tab to "Exceptions" and then type in the URL of the website where you want pop-ups to be allowed.

Sieghard

Stan, check out http://www.spoonbillsoftware.com.au/bgcrossword.htm

and if you want to check out what other games are available, visit
http://www.spoonbillsoftware.com.au/bggames.htm

the games are free for anyone to download and play. be aware that the
games are self voicing, so your screen reader will have to be silenced
unless you want to hear two voices. the help document contains the
directions and can be accessed within the game or externally (it's an
HTML file that opens in a browser). there may be a couple of
instructions for the version of Windows you intend to use when
installing the game, and you can email the programmer with problems you
experience or questions if the help document doesn't answer; the games
are mostly bug free and straight forward.

I think he still will email you with notifications of new games that
become available or improvements for a specific game you downloaded if
you provide your email address.

Hi Pablo,

 

I know you were trying to get tech support from Freedom Scientific on Friday and they were closed due to the hurricane. I was just curious what is going on today so I called the toll free number. It did say that due to the hurricane they are working with reduced staff, but when I chose tech support for Jaws I was put on hold and shortly after was told by the phone system that I was caller number 1 in the queue. I didn’t have any urgent questions so I hung up in order to give others the chance to reach somebody, but it would appear that FS is open for business at least to some degree. I can also say to those who commented they should let people telecommute that I am pretty sure at least some of their tech support people do work from their homes if not all. I once or twice asked a tech support agent and they told me they were working from at home.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

The majority of support works from home. I’ve spoken to the support team all the way from Kentucky to Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusetts.  If the servers are down because of Irma that may explain the reason for the difficulty in getting through.

Re: Jaws saying punctuation that is not on screen

Mario
 

I suspect that the updated program that is used to create the PDF
reports is inserting or creating extraneous characters that are strange
because if you place the PC cursor on the invisible question symbol and
press numpad 5 three times quickly, you hear "character 55358". the
normal question mark is 63. and I'd also think the other characters you
mentioned would have strange character values as well. I would suggest
to either make a dictionary entry to filter out the pronunciation of
these extra ordinary symbols or bring this issue to the attention of the
manufacturer's of the program used to create the PDF reports and explain
the issue and impact it has on your work. or do both.

in the meantime, to add a dictionary entry, you can either:

1. move the PC cursor to the mysterious character, press shift+right
arrow to select, press control+c to copy it to the clipboard.
now press insert+d to open the dictionary manager, and add an entry,
pressing control+v for the actual word and pressing the spacebar for
it's replacement. just try it with one symbol to see if it works. if not:

2. you'll have to try using the character value for the actual word. I
am not sure on doing this because I don't know if the value needs to be
preceded by a slash or some other character like perhaps a caret.

the other suggestion leads to ask a question? do you know what the
setting for graphics is set to? this maybe a simpler suggestion before
trying the others mentioned. if you don't know:

when the report is open in Reader DC, press insert+v, type graphics,
down arrow once, and listen to what the level is set to. if it does not
say labeled, press the spacebar until it does and press enter to save
the change. now see if the mysterious symbols are still spoken or gone.

Subject: Jaws saying punctuation that is not on screen

Hi all,

I know a little of what my problem is but… I don’t know how to work
around it.



We have a program that generates reports into a PDF format. This program
has been updated in the last week or so. I didn’t notice this last week
but I am noticing it now.

When I run one of these reports Jaws is reporting a Question Mark after
many of the words that are presented in a line populated by a criteria
in put or a data field.

I have used WE on these same resulting pdfs and I am not hearing the
Question marks read back.

I opened older reports generated by the older system and there jaws is
not saying the question marks as it is in todays reports.

I had visual verification that there are no marks on the screen to see
in either the older reports or the new reports.

And, yes I have unloaded and reloaded jaws no change. And, yes I have
restarted the computer. This is Jaws 18, Windows 10 1703, and Adobi
reader DC.

First question What is jaws reading? Why is it now saying these things?

I think they must be some sort of place holder generated but why now is
Jaws reading them?

The report “looks” exactly as it did before.

If I can’t figure out how to make the report not use this how do I keep
jaws from saying the invisible punctuation marks?

Like I said this just happened today. Did something happen to an update
someware else like Adobi Reader or Windows itself that would have caused
this change?

I doubt it due to the older reports reading correctly but.

How can I stop jaws from reading these invisible marks?

I’ll use the speech history to show you all what it is that I am hearing
and paste it below.

NOTE the vertical tab and bullet that is being spoken in the history is
only in the history. It is not happening during the reading of the PDF.

Instapaper versus Pocket and accessibility

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So for the longest, I’ve been using Instapaper to save various articles to read later. I mainly do so via the iOS app on my iPhone. This arrangement has served me well.

Nevertheless, the actual website has been and continues to present some accessibility issues. I’ve written the Instapaper folks about this as well as VFO. VFO took a look at the site and pointed out some areas where accessibility is lacking. I provided this info to Instapaper as well. The site still has the same issues. The Instapaper folks gave lip service on how they take accessibility seriously and would look into it, but nothing’s changed.

IN any event, I’ve found myself needing to check out my article database more and more on my PC. TO this, does anyone know if Pocket has any better accessibility on the computer in conjunction with Jaws? I’m on V 18 with Firefox as my main browser.

I guess I’m also interested in how accessible the iOS app is, but for now, more so the actual website on the PC. It would be a hassle to have to transfer everything I’ve saved over the years just to find out that Pocket may have accessibility problems of its own.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Cristobal

I originally found OWA very easy to use, but then at one point it looked
totally different and was a real pain and very inaccessible. I then saw a
post where somebody described where to find this setting which switched it
back to the old style which is super accessible.
It's a very clean interface where messages are displayed in a table which
for me says it has 8 columns and 22 rows, at the bottom I can click on other
pages to display more messages and you can use just the arrows if you have
table navigation turned on to go left and right and up and down and read
fields like From, Date, Subject etc. Each message has a checkbox in front of
it so you could, for example select multiple messages for deletion and so
on. If you have thi slayout you should have no problems, if not hopefully
somebody who knows how to set this up correctly can provide the steps.
I should say that I also use Outlook 2016 because I also have my personal
Outlook.com accounts set up and find it easier to use, but for my business
account I could easily get used to using OWA.
