You need to listen to FSCast 149 - FireFox 59 is in beta testing, and the updated esr version 60 released in mid May.

That's a bunch of BS from people who don't like FS/VFO, they are actively working to get this resolved and I bet that it will be within the next 3 or 4 months.

Hey guys,

OK, yet another problem with jfw acting sluggish with yet no
explaination with firefix. I am running jaws 18. Lately i am
loading firefox, to google which is my home page, I'll alt tab over
to it and start tabbing around and it just literally says nothing.
It's almost like it has to focus on it, it seems to be a lot slower.
Anyone else seen something similar? It's pretty annoying to say the least.

Check the status of the hardware acceleration option in advanced
settings. Also, there are a bunch of tweeks one can do in Firefox to
squeeze a bit more performance out of the browser. You have to play
around the the configuration setting of FireFox though to do this. If
you're comfortable with palying around in this part of the browser, then
no big deal, but if not... best to leave it alone.

Re: Screen reader tutorial

Nino Dagostino
 

Hi Bill:

 

I called Vfo and talked to a pretty nice tech.

 

He told me that the sound card settings for jaws is in the utilitys menu that is the place to change the sound.

 

I was thinking if you had to get another sound device you can get them from Amazon for 10 or 15$

 

I hope this will help you.

 

Have a good day.

Hi, Nino. My problem is with the following instruction in that tutorial:

 

5. Set a screen-reader to use directly your soundcard driver (not                  Total Recorder driver).

 

I don’t know how to do this. I can set my default driver for the sound card as my default sound card driver, but don’t know anywhere in JAWS to change the sound driver it uses with the sound card.

Re: Skype and Jaws 2018

I've used the Windows 10 version of Skype a few times and didn't notice any
problems with it. I was able to make calls without any issues.

Hello list,

Was wondering if anyone’s been using the latest Skype (be it the desktop or
Windows 10 app) with a telephone number and whether they’ve been able to
perform basic functions with Jaws? I know the Skype topic has come up
recently in the past and how there are some accessibility challenges with
it. But it looks like there’s a nasty Skype for desktop exploit out there
and since I don’t use the chat features, but rather just the phone aspect,
thus my inquiry.

I saw that Brian Hartgen commented on Twitter that he’s been using the
Windows 10 app and is pleased with it. I know Brian’s probably considered an
advanced power user, so maybe he knows how to work around stuff maybe more
than the “average” computer user.

Microsoft accessibility has acknowledged the accessibility difficulties with
the latest Skype updates, but as of yet, nothing’s been done about it.

IN any event, I’m still on Skype for desktop 7.4 and using the latest Jaws
2018. Again, I’m mainly interested in the telephone aspect of the program
and if it’s still workable with Jaws. Be it the dedicated desktop app or the
universal Windows 10 app.

I had to change the default program for the .pdf file extension in Windows. Everytime I answered yes in Adobe to make Reader the default program for PDFs it would revert back to opening them in Edge and when I told the file to open with Adobe I would get the same dialog box regarding Adobe as the default program. Once I made the change in windows everything worked just fine.

Subject: jfw and firefox acting very sluggish

Hey guys,

OK, yet another problem with jfw acting sluggish with yet no explaination
with firefix. I am running jaws 18. Lately i am loading firefox, to google
which is my home page, I'll alt tab over to it and start tabbing around and
it just literally says nothing. It's almost like it has to focus on it, it
seems to be a lot slower. Anyone else seen something similar? It's pretty
annoying to say the least.

Cheers,
Jed

I’ve heard of this but I don’t currently use jaws so I can’t confirm it. However, I can tell you that until the latest version of Firefox NVDA was doing The same thing that you just described. I’ve seen a lot of people on my Twitter feed say that the reason John is doing this is because VFO is refusing to work with Mozilla to solve the problem. I don’t know if this is true but it’s what people have said.

Re: Firefox ESR 52.5 64 bit

If I use Google to search for "Firefox ESR", the first page returned in the
search results is
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/
on which there's a link to the download. It took less than 30 seconds to find
that.

I have put it on my web site. I'll leave it there until Firefox 60 comes out. Sorry if you wanted the 32 bit version. I suspect it could be found at Mozilla's web site.
But, if you want the 64 bit version, follow this link and save it to your hard drive.

Re: jfw and firefox acting very sluggish

GV-Knope, John (Greenville)
 

I listened to FSCast 149 this morning. FS is recommending that users of FireFox drop back to the extended release version 52 until the May release of FireFox 60.

The current issue is that FireFox 57+ is using a multiprocessor, sandbox, approach to render web content. This is denying JAWS access to the content. Check out FSCaset 149 for more detail.

I am not sure how to obtain version 52.

I think this would be true of any type of internet browser. If you delete everything but passwords this will improve performance. You can also do this through Disk cleanup within file explorer.

If you still have the installer for Firefox version 52, you might want to remove Firefox and try reinstalling it. I'm using Firefox 52 with Windows 10, and am having no sluggishness.

Re: Saving David Bails windows files

David Bailes
 

Hi Dino,
The guides are self contained html files, that is, they don't contain any links to external files such as css files or images. So if you're saving a guide using file, save as, you can set the "save as type" to webpage, html only.

Note that the advantage of reading the guides directly on the web, is that if I make any corrections or additions to the guides, you'll automatically read the updated version.

Thanks for your positive comment about the guides,
David.

Hi:

 

First of all let me say how mutch those tutorials are appreciated.

 

Could you save the web page by clicking file and then moving down to saveas

 

Then tabbing one time to the file type and move the arrow down to single mht file?

 

I am not sure if that would work.

 

Have a good day.
