Re: Edge tutorial

David Moore
 

Hi all!

Here is my text tutorial on using the Microsoft Edge Browser.

I explain what I am doing, and what JAWS is saying, so you can follow along on your computer.

Edge works very well, with JAWS 2018.

Here is the tutorial right below, pasted right here:

Tutorial for Using Microsoft Edge

By

David Moore

I am using the latest public build of Windows 10 Creators update.

If you are using anything different than that, you might get different results.

When you can press spacebar or enter, I will list them both.

If I only list enter, that means that you can only use enter.

If I only list Spacebar, that means that you can only press spacebar to toggle something, for example.

I have a list of all key commands for Edge at the end of this tutorial. Through the tutorial, I will point out many key commands as well, as I go.

 

Section Number One

Opening the Edge Browser:

Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape, to open the start area. Next, type Edge and enter when Narrator announces it.

Press enter, and the Edge browser should open.

 

Section Number Two

Opening the Freedom Scientific Web Site:

I pressed CTRL+L (alt+D works as well) and entered:

www.freedomscientific.com

That is the site for Freedom Scientific.

The web site came up very quickly.

I can use all navigation keys, like H for heading, C for Combo Box, E for edit area, , for example, just like other browsers, and they all work.

Section Three

Pressing alt+X to get a large Virticle Menu:

Now, I will now press ALT+X to open the settings and more menu! This is to the right of the address bar, but Alt+X opens this same menu. We have a lot in this virticle menu.a large virticle menu of choices. When I down arrow, I here the following:

New Window (CTRL+N), New InPrivate Window (CTRL+SHIFT+P), Zoom out, Zoom in, Cast media to device, Find on page, Print, Pin this page to Start, F12 Developer Tools, Open with Internet Explorer, Send feedback, Extensions, What's new and Tips, and finally, Settings. Extensions and Settings are the main two choices we are interested in with this menu. Key commands will do the rest.

Next, I will talk about settings.

Section Four:

Navigating settings and Advance settings:

Press alt+X again, and up arrow once to settings, because that is the last choice.

Press enter on settings.

You will hear:

Choose a Theme light.

Don't worry about that!

Tab once, and you will hear:

Open Microsoft Edge with a page or set of pages combo box.

This is how you choose how you want Microsoft Edge to open.

I have mine set to a specific page or pages.

Now, Tab again, and you have an edit field where you can type in your pages that you want opened When Microsoft Edge is launched.

I just entered:

www.google.com

Therefore, when I start Edge, the Google home page opens for me.

Tabbing again:

I hear delete button, where you can press spacebar or enter to delete your page or pages.

Tabbing again, I hear Add Button, where you can press spacebar or enter and add another page that you want to open when Edge is started.

Tabbing again, I hear:

Open new tabs with combo box.

I have this set to a blank page.

Tab again, and you will hear:

Import from another browser button.

You can press spacebar or enter here to import all favorites and settings from other browsers you use, like IE 11 or Chrome, or Firefox.

Tab again, and you will hear:

Show the favorites bar toggle.

I have this unchecked, because I do not want everyone to see my favorites on a bar right on the Edge Window. Press spacebar to check or uncheck..

Tab again, and you hear:

Choose what to clear.

If you press spacebar on this, you can tab and check or uncheck what is cleared when you delete your history. You can also choose whether this should be cleared every time you close the Edge browser.

Tab, and you will either hear Account Settings or your MSA account link, depending on your account setting.

Tabbing again, I hear:

Sync your favorites and reading list unchecked.

You definitely want to check this by pressing spacebar, so all of your Edge data will be synced between all of your devices. If you do not want this, then uncheck it with spacebar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Sync device settings link.

Tab again, and you hear:

View Advanced settings button.

This is important, and I will cover that in a bit.

Tab again, and you hear:

Terms of use link.

Tab again, and you hear:

Privacy statement link.

Tab again, and you hear:

Pin this pane button.

Tab again, and you hear:

Change my default button.

We are back to the beginning of settings. Now, let us go through the advanced settings.

Next, press Alt+X, and up arrow once to settings, and press enter. Now, Shift tab to Advanced settings, since that was almost at the end of what we tabbed through. Go ahead and enter on the advanced settings. There is a lot you can customise here.  Let’s tab through this menu.

Press enter on Advanced Settings, and you hear:

Show the home button toggle.

I have this pressed, by using spacebar, because I want my home page to show in the Edge Window!

Tab again, and you hear:

A specific page collapsed. This is what I want.

Tab again, and there is an edit field to put the URL of what you want your home page to be.

I want my home page to be the same page is my start page, so I just enter:

www.google.com

to be my home page.

Now:

www.google.com

is my start page and my home page.

To go back to your home page from anywhere, just press:

Alt+Home

Tab again, and you hear:

Save Button.

Press spacebar or enter on this to save your home page.

You now hear:

block pop-ups toggle.

I have mine unchecked, by using the spacebar, because I want pages to come up, that are considered pop-ups.

However, to keep safe, you should probably have that checked, so Edge will indeed block pop-ups.

This is up to you.

Tab again, and you hear:

Use Adobe Flash Player.

I have this checked, with the spacebar, because a lot of web sites still need Adobe flash to play videos and the like.

Tab again, and you hear:

Open sites in apps.

I have this checked with spacebar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Choose which sites open in apps button.

I have this checked. Next, Choose which sites open in apps.  This will launch the Settings app where you can customize whether to open certain web site in an app or in the browser.

Tab again, and you hear:

Change button.

I hear change button, you can use this to change where to save downloaded files to.

Tab again, and you hear:

Ask me what to do with each download toggle.

I have that checked, with spacebar, because when I download something, I want it to ask me if I want to save or open and so on.

Tab again, and you hear:

Open Proxy settings button.

I left this alone.

Tab again, and you hear:

Manage button.

I left this alone.

Tab again, and you hear:

Learn more link.

Tab again, and you hear:

Offer to save passwords toggle.

I checked this, with spacebar, so I can have a password saved if I want.

Tab again, and you hear:

Manage Passwords button.

I left this alone.

Tab again, and you hear:

Save form entries toggle.

I have this checked with spacebar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Send do not track requests toggle.

I have this unchecked with spacebar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge.

I have mine turnned on with spacebar. If you want this off, just press spacebar until you hear unchecked or off. sometimes, it will say on or off, or, it will say checked or unchecked. You will hear both ways spoken, but they are the same.

Tab again, and you hear:

Change Search Engine button:

This is important, because I pressed space bar or enter on that, and it was a combo box that was set on Bing. Keep that if you want, but I changed mine to Google.

I like Google to do my searches rather than Bing.

When you are done with this, Tab and hear will hear:

Back button.

Press space on that, to go back to the advanced settings that we are in.

The back button shows up a lot in Edge, so you can just go back to where you were.

Tab again, and you hear:

Show search and site suggestions as I type toggle.

I used spacebar to uncheck that, because I do not like suggestions to populate as I type in the address bar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Clear Bing search history link.

I did nothing with that.

Tab again, and you hear:

Optimize Taskbar web search results for screen readers.

Mine is check; to uncheck, just use spacebar.

Tab again, and you hear:

Don't block cookies combo box collapsed.

I left that alone.

Tab again, and you hear:

Let sites save protected media licenses on my device.

This is checked.

Tab again, and you hear:

Use page prodiction to speed up websites.

I have this check. To uncheck, just use spacebar, but you want this checked.

Tab again, and you hear:

Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with Windows Defender Smartscreen toggle.

I kept this checked.

Tab again, and you hear:

Pin this Pane button.

Tab again, and you hear:

Back button.

Guess what this is for.

Entering on this takes you back to just plain old settings.

Remember, we entered on Advanced settings within settings.

Pressing spacebar or enter on this back button, takes you back to settings where we chose our start page and all of that.

Therefore, we are all done with Settings.

Look at what you know already, just by pressing Alt+X, up arrow once to settings, and press enter, tab through settings, enter on advanced settings, tab through those settings, and press enter on the back button to get you back to settings, and just press escape twice to get out of settings, and you are back on the Freedom Scientific web site we started out with.

Important:

You must press escape twice to get out of settings and back on to the Freedom Scientific web site.

 

Section Five

Getting to, and navigating the Hub.

Now, I will show you how to get to the Hub.  The Hub is located just after the address bar area.  It has 5 tabs: Favorites, Reading list, Books, History and Downloads. However, instead of often coming here, we will activate three of these tabs with key commands right from your web site.

Now, this is where your starting place will be a lot in Edge:

Press alt+D or CTRL+L to get to the address bar or whatever it is called in Edge LOL!

Important, we will get to everything else by tabbing or shift tabbing from the address bar. However, you won't need to do this often, because we can activate this stuff by key commands right from the Web site. The address bar is your starting place, so you can tab to get to everything else that we will talk about in Edge. If you get on that address bar, you are set to get to everything else that is on top of the Edge Window.

So now, from the Freedom Scientific web site:

Press Alt+D or CTRL+L

You should hear the URL of the Freedom Scientific web site.

You are on the address bar, our starting place.

Tab once, and you hear:

Add to favorites or reading list button.

If you press enter here, you will save the Freedom Scientific web site that we are on in your favorites. However, you can do this by just pressing CTRL+D from the web site. Just press enter, and tab to save and press enter. This is how you will save a web site in your favorites.

Tab again, and you hear:

Hub ( Favorites, Reading List, Books, History, and Downloads toggle button not pressed.

Now, just tab a few times to get back to the web site. That is all you need to do from up here. You can also press F6 to get from this upper area back to the web site.

To get back to the Hub, press Ctrl + I to open the first tab in the Hub, the Favorites tab.

You will hear Narrator announce Hub, Favorites window, tab control, Favorite tab selected 1 of 5.

Here we are in our favorites.  I can tab twice to the list of favorites then arrow up and down through my favorites.

If I Shift+Tab twice, I am back on the five tabs. I can navigate these tabs, by just pressing the right and left arrow keys. Press right arrow, and you will hear the other four tabs, Reading list, Books, History, and Downloads.

When you right arrow to the Books tab, Tab from here, and I hear Get Books button, Sign in button, and Shop for Books button. This is exciting.

The fourth tab is the History tab, you can press Ctrl + H to get to it directly.

I can delete my history, and look at my history here.

The 5th and last tab, is my Downloads tab.  Open it by pressing Ctrl + J.  Here is where you come to view your downloads, and check on the status of a download in progress.

So, that is it for the HUB button.

I pressed Esc to get out of Hub. The only two tabs that there are not key commands to go to them are the Books and Reading list, which you will not use that much anyway.

I just want you to see that you can press right and left arrow keys on the tabs, but you can get to those tabs with one of the three key commands:

CTRL+I for the Favorites tab, CTRL+H, for the History Tab, and CTRL+J for the downloads tab.

We are done with using the Hub!

have you tried running the setup with jaws unloaded?
it may be that it couldn't install the drivers or files because they were still in use.

I had to do a repair which went through but did not fix my problems.
Vfo told me to uninstall including shared components which will make
things not work and to immediately install the same version.

Hello list,

So, I��ve been dealing with this issue since Jaws 18 was put out on 9/26/17. Along with the Outlook address thing that later got fixed, I was having trouble when replying or forwarding message in Outlook. Arrowing down was not possible.
Jaws would behave as though I was at the bottom of the screen. Even if I arrowed up once and then tried going back down to the line I was previously at, I��d encounter that same barrier. Navigating the message body of text with the read
by paragraph or sentence commands, Jaws worked as always. It was just the read/navigate by line that was giving me problems.

VFO tech support emailed me instructing that I should try doing a Jaws repair. Do the copy path from my JFW .exe file and add the / type repair at the end in the run dialog box.

As I saw that Jaws 2018 came out today, I figured I��d try to get this resolved. I for one reason or another hadn��t had the chance to go through with the repair, but figured I should try addressing it before upgrading to JFW 2018.

In any event, I went through the repair process earlier today and along with all the other typical Jaws chatter when doing an installation (I was using a JFW.exe file from October that addressed the Outlook issue), I heard Jaws say
something about a sentinel system driver not being copied. By the end of the process I then got the following error message:

The JAWS setup package could not install the required component

JAWSRepair. The process will now exit.

OK

I already wrote VFO back about this, but as it��s Jaws 2018 release day, I don��t expect a follow up any time soon as I��m sure they��ll be dealing with all sorts of stuff related to that.

Anyone have an idea on what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks,

Cristobal

Well… SO I first went back and clicked on the last October JFW .exe file I had and the prompt of Jaws made changes to your computer. Restart for changes to take affect etc. Came up. I thought… … … cool maybe it’ll work after all. The PC restarted and I got the notification to modify/repair of which I selected repair. I let it do its thing. Pressed the various OK buttons and after it restarted again… … … the same reply/forward bug appeared.

So I figured, I’ll go ahead and just install the new JFW 2018 released today and as was suggested, not migrate any settings. Did the whole song and dance. Restarted the machine. Went through the startup wizard and… … … Low-and-behold, I’ve got the reply/forward bug on this new JFW version as well.

This is the only real issue I’m encountering. And on this one machine. JFW 2018 on my HP Envy laptop is working perfectly fine. At least not getting that reply/forward bug on it. Unfortunately, this is a rather noticeable bug and present on my main work desktop. Both running Office 2016/Windows 10.

I guess I’ll have to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. That will have to be with more time though.

I think someone on one of these lists said to also try removing shared components. I don’t think I want to do that… I don’t recall at the moment, but does removing shared components mean you’ll then need an activation key? I’m fairly certain that I’m currently at zero keys.

Anyway, something to worry about for tomorrow.

Why not just install Jaws 2018, I would say at this point to set it up from scratch and not merge your settings when asked just so you get the best possible experience which is not effected by possibly some problem in your user settings.

Jaws 2018 does not require you to repair Jaws 18, in fact you could completely uninstall Jaws 18 and it would make no difference to Jaws 2018.

Jaws 2018 does not require you to repair Jaws 18, in fact you could completely uninstall Jaws 18 and it would make no difference to Jaws 2018.

Subject: Problem trying to repair Jaws 18 before upgrading to V 2018

 

Hello list,

So, I’ve been dealing with this issue since Jaws 18 was put out on 9/26/17. Along with the Outlook address thing that later got fixed, I was having trouble when replying or forwarding message in Outlook. Arrowing down was not possible. Jaws would behave as though I was at the bottom of the screen. Even if I arrowed up once and then tried going back down to the line I was previously at, I’d encounter that same barrier. Navigating the message body of text with the read by paragraph or sentence commands, Jaws worked as always. It was just the read/navigate by line that was giving me problems.

VFO tech support emailed me instructing that I should try doing a Jaws repair. Do the copy path from my JFW .exe file and add the / type repair at the end in the run dialog box.

As I saw that Jaws 2018 came out today, I figured I’d try to get this resolved. I for one reason or another hadn’t had the chance to go through with the repair, but figured I should try addressing it before upgrading to JFW 2018.

In any event, I went through the repair process earlier today and along with all the other typical Jaws chatter when doing an installation (I was using a JFW.exe file from October that addressed the Outlook issue), I heard Jaws say something about a sentinel system driver not being copied. By the end of the process I then got the following error message:

The JAWS setup package could not install the required component

JAWSRepair.  The process will now exit.

OK

I already wrote VFO back about this, but as it’s Jaws 2018 release day, I don’t expect a follow up any time soon as I’m sure they’ll be dealing with all sorts of stuff related to that.

Anyone have an idea on what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks,

Cristobal

Well… SO I first went back and clicked on the last October JFW .exe file I had and the prompt of Jaws made changes to your computer. Restart for changes to take affect etc. Came up. I thought… … … cool maybe it’ll work after all. The PC restarted and I got the notification to modify/repair of which I selected repair. I let it do its thing. Pressed the various OK buttons and after it restarted again… … … the same reply/forward bug appeared.

So I figured, I’ll go ahead and just install the new JFW 2018 released today and as was suggested, not migrate any settings. Did the whole song and dance. Restarted the machine. Went through the startup wizard and… … … Low-and-behold, I’ve got the reply/forward bug on this new JFW version as well.

This is the only real issue I’m encountering. And on this one machine. JFW 2018 on my HP Envy laptop is working perfectly fine. At least not getting that reply/forward bug on it. Unfortunately, this is a rather noticeable bug and present on my main work desktop. Both running Office 2016/Windows 10.

I guess I’ll have to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. That will have to be with more time though.

I think someone on one of these lists said to also try removing shared components. I don’t think I want to do that… I don’t recall at the moment, but does removing shared components mean you’ll then need an activation key? I’m fairly certain that I’m currently at zero keys.

Anyway, something to worry about for tomorrow.

That is what is so strange, it says it is authorized but it gives the correct number for being out of beta but it says it is beta
it runs fine but there is some kind of glitch and BFO is even stumped right now.
It gives your correct serial number and the locking code and all but it says ILM beta after the version number.

I’m using Word 2010.  You can do as you have asked.  Start on the first page of your document and go to the Insert Ribbon. Tab over till you hit the Page numbers button, which has a menu. With options as to where to place the page number, top of page, bottom of page, etc.  For me, the second option down is to put the page number at the bottom of the page in the footer and it has a submenu allowing you to pick the style.   For my test, I selected the third or fourth one down that said something like ‘pg. 1”.  Hit enter on the choice you want.  When you hit enter, your cursor will be placed in the documents footer at the beginning of the line.  By default, the page number for this choice was at the left edge.  I supposed part of what you are choosing on the submenu is where you want the page number to be located, e.g., left, right, center, etc.  If you arrow beyond the page number, you can add a comma or hyphen and your name.  Hit Escape to exit out of the footer.  You can also use the standard Word shortcuts of Control L to left justify, Control  E to center and Control R to right justify.  Now, each time you add pages, the footer will automatically add the page number with your name. 

 

I admit that I am using my bit of vision to confirm that the page numbers are as I have told you and  I don’t know the best way for you to validate your work.  Maybe using the JAWS  cursor to read the page.

Only issue I am still having is that after assing control alt J to the Jaws shortcut as the hot key it will still not work by hitting control alt J.
I have removed the shortcut for Jaws 18 from my desktop.


Re: inserting page numbers within word

Van Lant, Robin
 

I’m using Word 2010.  You can do as you have asked.  Start on the first page of your document and go to the Insert Ribbon. Tab over till you hit the Page numbers button, which has a menu. With options as to where to place the page number, top of page, bottom of page, etc.  For me, the second option down is to put the page number at the bottom of the page in the footer and it has a submenu allowing you to pick the style.   For my test, I selected the third or fourth one down that said something like ‘pg. 1”.  Hit enter on the choice you want.  When you hit enter, your cursor will be placed in the documents footer at the beginning of the line.  By default, the page number for this choice was at the left edge.  I supposed part of what you are choosing on the submenu is where you want the page number to be located, e.g., left, right, center, etc.  If you arrow beyond the page number, you can add a comma or hyphen and your name.  Hit Escape to exit out of the footer.  You can also use the standard Word shortcuts of Control L to left justify, Control  E to center and Control R to right justify.  Now, each time you add pages, the footer will automatically add the page number with your name. 

 

I admit that I am using my bit of vision to confirm that the page numbers are as I have told you and  I don’t know the best way for you to validate your work.  Maybe using the JAWS  cursor to read the page.

Hi all, Is there a way to insert a page number on a word document along with putting your name next to that page number?

Thanks.

James

I had uninstalled the beta before installing this new version.

When I check the Help, About, I do not have the word beta.

Hello everyone,

I just got off the phone with VO tech support and anyone that updated there Jaws 2018 out of beta and downloaded and installed the regular

version today you might want to go in to your jaws settings and check what it says in the about box and you might find the same thing I did.

Mine said jaws 2018 ILM beta 2018171036. I just got off the phone and tech support doesn’t know how to fix it right now.

They even had me remove my jaws authorization and re authorize it and that still didn’t fix it.

I just thought I would post this just incase any one else had this problem.Jesus dyed for us, why can't we live for him?
