IE 9

Rose Combs <rosecombs@...>
 

Update keeps bugging me to install IE 9. for those of you who have done so,
should I keep ignoring the message. Using Windows 7, 64.bit latest update
of Jaws, with their quirky number system I won't even try to say which
number, just the latest available last week should help anyone who really
wants to know. I keep unchecking this but it refuses to leave me alone, and
I am not sure I want the 9 version at this point.

Yes, John. I'm here, and I'm sure the world is still turning. <smile>

And, now, I'm off to install the latest Jaws 12.

So, let's hope that doesn't blow things up.

Is the list still active or just very few people subscribed to it? I
haven't seen it this quiet in a... well, never.

Got the following from a Webvisum list member; not sure it will work for those (including me) who don't use Linux, or if it's worth the trouble if there's no captcha solution notification. Thanks for your feedback.

Hi,

look here:
http://www.camp-firefox.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=91070
and try to install Webvisum from the xpi linked there.
* Works without trouble with FF5 (at least under Linux) and is supposed
to work with 6 either.
* You obviously won't get any notifications from Webvisum (e.g. when a
captcha is solved), at least I cannot see any, might be a screenreader
issue.
* Just mail me if the link is down; in this case I would provide an
alternative.

Re: cannot install/activate pluginRe: Webvisum plugin lost

Gerald Levy
 

I agree with you. That's why I have no intention of upgrading from Firefox 3.6 anytime soon. My understanding is that Mozilla plans to release a new version of Firefox at least once every quarter, so it is highly unlikely that Webvisum will be able to keep up with such an ambitious release schedule.

Gerald,

Negoslav posted another solution on this list, too, though one that required
a little techy sophistication, as I recall. My concern comes from other
listers who upgraded to FF5 and weren't able to return to an earlier version
with Webvisum working again. This may seem implausible, but I remember
versions of JAWS that made it impossible to return to this or that feature
of an earlier version. So to me, a non-techy, the risk of upgrading to FF5
outweighs any benefits until Webvisum and FF5 are officially compatible.

Re: which financial software works best with screen reader

Good morning,

I visited your web site since I am also interested in such an accessible product.

Problem: Although my knowledge of English seems sufficient for me to efficiently use this product, it is not the case of the other members of my family.

Subject: which financial software works best with screen reader

Hello Jamie Prater,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. I haven't yet got the digest for this week but found your email on the website.

You asked on 4th July, how JAWS works with Accomplish CashManager. Our product is a mainstream product that has been in the Australasian marketplace for some 20 years, and over the past 3 or 4 years have found that it was accessible purely by accident.

Since then we have worked very hard, using Jaws as our base product for testing, to get CashManager as accessible as possible. We know we currently have a couple of areas that can be improved (which we are working on), but can confirm you can manage your business using CashManager for everything. We currently have a number of people using Jaws, Window-Eyes and Magnification with CashManager, and if you would like to go to our website, you will find testimonials of people who are vision impaired using CashManager - along with other people who use the product. www.http://us.accomplishglobal.com/vision/cashmanager-for-vision-impaired.html

I would be interested to hear you comments about the trial product we have available that you can download and test, about how you find the product.

Regards Raewyn Whisker
Account Manager
Accomplish Limited


Skype 5 issues with Jaws

Hamid Hamraz
 

Hi all,

I have installed skype version 5.3 and the Jaws scripts for version 4. Clearly, I have some problems. I couldn't find skype 4 on the internet to download.

Can someone here provide me a link to download the compatible skype version (preferably the offline installer), and its respective scripts?

I am using windows 7, and I found out that skype 3.x has compatibility issues there!

Many thanks,

Hamid

Re: Introduction and Microsoft word questions

Garth Humphreys <ghum01@...>
 

Hi

I think the reason that you can get stuck near the bottom of a document when arowing down or near the top when arrowing up is because the default views in word will often have more then one page on the screen at a time. So you will have page one on the left and page two on the right and then page three below page one and page four below page two. If you arrow off the bottom of page one you will go straight to page 3 below it. If you arrow right off the bottom of page one you will land on page two. The problem is that you can't arrow down off page three to get to page four.

Any of the views that get rid of these multiple pages will sort the problem. I use outline view or go to the zoom option and set it to page width or one page.

Hope this makes sense.

Subject: Introduction and Microsoft word questions


Hello JFW list members,

My name is Eric Caron. I am new to this list and thought I would do a quick
intro before asking a few questions.

I live in Vermont USA and use computers both at work and at home, though for

different uses. At work I use windows machines and do mostly internet
programs and Microsoft word. At home I use a Apple and do more with audio
editing, personal music organization and listening, and many internet
activities. I have just upgraded at work to a Windows 7 machine using Jaws
12. I also run XP on my Mac for occasional use but plan to add Windows 7
soon.

I came to this list because I have found the support lists of blind mac
users very helpful and would be lost without them. I wanted to find a
similar group of blind JAWS Windows users.

I have been using JAWS since version 3.1 or something like that. I'm
feeling a little rusty now because of the change to Windows 7 and so on.
I'm really looking forward to sharing knowledge and assistance on this list.


On to a question.

I'm using the newest Microsoft word program and have noticed a strange
behavior with many of my files. I work with just over 200 students and have

many many files. Lately when I open a word file about half the time the
following happens. I'll be arrowing down the page reading line by line then

suddenly I can not arrow down any more. This happens even though the file
may be a few pages longer then the spot it stops. If I go to the end of the

document say by hitting control end I can then arrow up through the rest of
the document to the point it previously stopped. It will then no longer let

me arrow up any further. I've noticed this seems to happen at a page
change.
I can then use control home to get to the top of the document and then arrow

down but again only as far as the point when the new page starts.
Any ideas how I can get back full control over my files?

Second word question. when I am in word 2010 or whatever the latest version

is, I control O and the dialogue box opens. I have to tab around a lot to
get to the thumb drive I store my data on. Is there a short cut key to get
to that part of the dialogue box?

Thanks for any assistance.

I'm looking forward to being part of this community.
Eric Caron

Hello Jamie Prater,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. I haven't yet got the digest for this week but found your email on the website.

You asked on 4th July, how JAWS works with Accomplish CashManager. Our product is a mainstream product that has been in the Australasian marketplace for some 20 years, and over the past 3 or 4 years have found that it was accessible purely by accident.

Since then we have worked very hard, using Jaws as our base product for testing, to get CashManager as accessible as possible. We know we currently have a couple of areas that can be improved (which we are working on), but can confirm you can manage your business using CashManager for everything. We currently have a number of people using Jaws, Window-Eyes and Magnification with CashManager, and if you would like to go to our website, you will find testimonials of people who are vision impaired using CashManager - along with other people who use the product. www.http://us.accomplishglobal.com/vision/cashmanager-for-vision-impaired.html

I would be interested to hear you comments about the trial product we have available that you can download and test, about how you find the product.

Re: Introduction and Microsoft word questions

when JAWS stops at the end of a page I change the view. I think I change it to normal, but if yours is set to normal change it to print view. that always fixes it for me.

Instead of starting in Word and then going to Open, go to the files list with My computer or Windows Explorer--Windows key plus e. Arrow to the file you want and press enter to open it.

good luck

Re: Jaws and Internet Explorer

Stephanie Switzer
 

That sounds pretty much like what mine's doing. I can read the address
bar, but not the web page. Jaws isn't working with Microsoft word now
either. It worked fine with both IE and M. S. Word until I installed
the latest update, so I'm thinking that has something to do with it.

On 7/4/11, Cliff Self <cliff@cablespeed.com> wrote:
Check to see if that computer is using something like Google tool bar in I
E. It could be blocking the page from Jaws. Also, check to see if there's
a pop up doing the same thing.

Hi,

I'm sending this mail on behalf of a friend of mine, who is having a
problem
with Jaws and Internet Explorer.

Hi All

I wonder if anyone can help me? A few months ago I installed JAWS 12 onto
my parents PC so I could use the internet when I am visiting them. All
was
well until this weekend. JAWS has literally stopped working with internet
explorer and I just can't understand why. When I load internet explorer
JAWS will read the title of the webpage and nothing else.

The arrow keys don't work and it says there are no links. If I try to use
any of the keystrokes like insert f6 the headings list won't appear and it
says no headings. No buttons or form fields can be found. If I press the
alt key I can look at the file, edit view menus etc but I just can't
navigate any webpages.

I have tried unloading and reloading JAWS, rebooting the PC, refreshing
the
webpage and still no luck. Internet explorer 8 is the version on the PC.

All other applications are working perfectly with JAWS. I've never come
across this problem before.

If anyone can shed any light or help me out I would be really grateful as
this is so frustrating.

Thanks in advance.
Brian.

Jaws 10 & Firefox 5

Marsha <marcatony@...>
 

Hi
Is there anyone on this list who is using Jaws 10 as their main version
who is also using Firefox 5? Are there any problems I should know about? I
am having a great deal of trouble using Firefox 3.6. It is crashing most of
the time when I attempt to close it. Thanks for your help.

yes I am here. But I am also out there. In more ways than I can say. But mostly since the fence posts are wobbly, I can easily lean over the fence and get out now and then. <g>

I do not know how we are to know how many subscribers there are, actually.
But I imagine many only are lurking, or looking for a subject heading that is of interest. And true, some may have migrated away after some of the repetition of posts that were making the list members weary.

Out there is the great northwest of these united states. where the buffalos roam and skies are not cloudy all day.
