Re: Need some help with Outlook 2016

Hello,

 

Don’t believe there is a shortcut for this. You need to go into your email settings and change it there. This is the same place you were at when setting up your email to begin with unless you used the automatic setup in Outlook. You’ll find your account setting under the file tab in the ribbons I believe under info

Re: changing to date modified with windows 7 and jaws 18

CathyAnne Murtha
 

If you’re in File Explorer, you can change the sorting in the View Ribbon:

 

  • Open the view Ribbon (ALT-V)
  • Activate the “Sort” command (O)
  • Within the drop-down list, activate the sorting option you’d like to use. In your case, “Date Modified”

 

The drop-down list closes and the documents are sorted by the selected criteria.

Re: clickable elements on a page not working (Rollback Firefox Suggestion)

CathyAnne Murtha
 

If you upgraded to Firefox Quantum (the latest version), it isn't yet supported by JAWS.

You can download and install the previous accessible version. To download the accessible version of Firefox, you can use the links below. They are for the US English version of the browser. If you want to download an International version, I've provided another link below the US English links.

Windows 64 bit:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win64&lang=en-US

Windows 32 bit:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US

Find this version of Firefox in all languages at:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

If you rollback Firefox, you'll have your familiar interface.

Hey guys,

OK, not sure what to make of this. I am using the latest jfw and firefox. I am on a webpage, and there are all kinds of buttons that say clickable. When i press enter on them, nothing changes on the web page. Any ideas how to interact with these buttons? I've tried pressing enter, nothing. I routed jaws to PC and done a left mouse click, nothing. Any ideas guys?


Creating accessible, fillable PDFs?

Johnson, Joanne
 

Hi Everyone,

 

I am having a lot of trouble making this fillable PDF accessible. (Both attached and at this link: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/article/661427 )


Three JAWS users have said it’s not screen reader accessible. Specifically, that JAWS just says “document processing” and does not read the text.   

 

  I’ve added tooltips to the form fields, tagged the text, and adjusted the reading
  order. The “Read Out Loud” feature in adobe reads everything correctly. I’ve done a lot of research online, including using several guides to create accessible, fillable PDF forms and I’m still stuck.

 But when I run the accessibility checker, it does show *something *is off. it asks me to “caption” an “image” and it’s referring to all of page one!

 

I’m wondering if I tagged something incorrectly or the file size is somehow beyond the capacity of JAWs (which seems unlikely).   

 

Do you have any ideas about what went wrong or how to make it right?

 

Also, we are hoping to find a company who can create accessible documents and forms so that we know they are accessible the first time, every time. Does anyone have any suggestions for companies that do good work?

 

We would especially love to use an organization that prioritizes the lived experience of people who need/use assistive technology and one located in or near Portland, Oregon. But we’re open to any suggestions.


 Thanks for anything you can offer. I really appreciate your expertise and skill.

 

Joanne

 

 

 


Re: Anyone tried and had success with Instacart?

I found that it wasn’t very accessible on the PC, but that it was more so on the iPhone. I’ve ordered from CostCo several times and had good results.

I found myself lacking a few things for my contribution to Thanks Giving.

I thought I would order from Instacart and have the missing items delivered to me at work so I had them when I go home.

What an ordeal!

The web page was only navigable with the tab key. None of the quick nav keys worked. It kept edititing the search field when I tried.

I couldn’t seam to get the buffer to come back.

I tried it with Chrome, IE, and Jaws 18 and Jaws 2018.

I have auto forms mode turned off and it is set to manual.

 The escape key would not do anything to allow me to read the page. You have to tab your self silly!

And when you press on the very verbosely labelled button for add, a window popps up with the picture of the item.  You have to get that closed to move on. Don’t hit alt f4 because it closes the browser.

Has anyone used this with success? I was getting so frustrated I asked for help to finish.

Is it just me or is that site built badlly?

Is there a trick? I thought this might be a really nice and convenient thing but if it is that hard to do, no way!!

I tried it on the iphone with the app and it was also horrible.

Thanks

Shannon

Re: getting to bookmarks in Firefox

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi: I understand. With IE, I can actually hit my keystroke from anywhere, not just from Internet Explorer itself, and instantly be in my favorites structure. So, for example, I'm browsing a cooking store website, and I find an item I want to consider, think about, get back to later. I hit alt-a and save it in the default directory, favorites. I go on, get more items, then, I go to another similar website, do the same thing. I finish up by just hitting my hotkey that I created, I'm there, and I start moving the items into directories that correspond to the particular website, or to gifts 2017, or whatever I have set up. The I have the impression that, with Firefox, you have to go into Firefox and go to the bookmarks and arrange them. You can't just do them with just the Windows file browser as I'm doing with Explorer. Am I wrong?

As far as I know Chrome does not work with Jaws 16.

Hey guys,

I am trying internet explorer, and in gmail when I go to my inbox with alt I, it doesn't work. I am also trying compose an email, with alt c and it doesn't work. Running jfw and the latest explorer. Any ideas why?
When I bring up the links it says inbox alt plus I. Anyone had this problem?


Re: getting to bookmarks in Firefox

try control i
then tab to the list.
then you can do what you want.
i like firefox because of the search option that is in the bookmark list. it might be the same with i e 11 but i seldom use it.

One thing I truly love about favorites in Explorer is that I can have a shortcut for it on my desktop. That shortcut takes me right into that structure that you, Jed, was talking about. I can cruise around in there, create new folders, move shortcuts all around as I like to have them, even change folder names and favorite names to make them clearer as to why on earth I've saved them. Is that method possible with Firefox? That's at least one of the reasons I've been hanging on to IE, even though people agree it's on its way out.

ok then how do you get to your master list of bookmarks? This is what

i don't get. It makes no sense what so ever. I tried control shift

B, and it said show all bookmarks, but none of them are there. The

only way i can seem to get to them is go to bookmarks, then just arrow

down through all 300 plus of them. What am i missing. Can you go

through step by step, cause obviously something isn't right. All i

see is all these bookmarks toolbars and other useless junk that

doesn't get me to where i want to go.

What an ordeal!

The web page was only navigable with the tab key. None of the quick nav

I couldn?t seam to get the buffer to come back.

I tried it with Chrome, IE, and Jaws 18 and Jaws 2018.

I have auto forms mode turned off and it is set to manual.

The escape key would not do anything to allow me to read the page. You
have to tab your self silly!

And when you press on the very verbosely labelled button for add, a window
popps up with the picture of the item. You have to get that closed to move
on. Don?t hit alt f4 because it closes the browser.

Has anyone used this with success? I was getting so frustrated I asked for
help to finish.

Is it just me or is that site built badlly?

Is there a trick? I thought this might be a really nice and convenient
thing but if it is that hard to do, no way!!

I tried it on the iphone with the app and it was also horrible.
