Rick,

 

Thanks for the link.  The manual is quite detailed.  Lots of reading, but it is all there.

 

I installed the demo version and am working through the process.  Is there an email support group for Money Talks?

I will give Money Talk a try.    I just did not want to do a trial and error search for accounting packages.

 

I have also tried Quicken Deluxe, various version with no success. Speaking to Freedom Scientific, the only option that they gave me was Cash Manager.      I will report back to the group with my results.

 

Thanks you all for your input.

Afternoon,

I used Quicken successfully for years. I had lost my install and purchased the newest version that turn out to be an accessibility nightmare.

 

In looking about, what I ended up doing was purchasing Money Talks the APH product that self-voices or works with JAWS, but have not tried it with NVDA, but will and report back. To be honest, since I made that purchase I have not given it the time I should. However it does allow for download of bank account information and lets one do basic checkbook and savings account management.

 

Your note made me think to look at Quick Books accessibility and the search turned up an older article at AFB’s Access World. The link is at:

http://www.afb.org/afbpress/pubnew.asp?DocID=aw150502

 

It was promising but dated 2014. It mentioned the joint work done by Intuit and  Blind Spot . Reference to Blind Spot is at:

Clearly Quick Books is more than I need and its pricey.  At the Blind Spot I went to their store to see about the scripts and training materials

You can purchase the following there.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2018, My Blind Spot JAWS scripts for Quickbooks, and Support Materials

$525.00

Under FAQs I found:

14) Where can I get the NVDA version of the scripts?

Seems a lot to keep my checking account balanced.

Is anyone having any success using personal accounting packages with Jaws.  I currently use Microsoft Money and that software has been discontinued by Microsoft.  Recently my bank, TD Bank, has made major changes to their online system and I can no longer export bank transactions to my MS Money.

 

I heard that Quicken is not accessible and I tried Cash Manager and I really do not like it.  I have 23 years of transactions that I do not want to lose.

if you're looking to try something different, I've heard the best

When you down load the file it will come in a zip folder so you don't
have to install this because it's portable. just use 7zip to
uncompressed it and start using it.

it is also compatible with all screen readers and versions of Windows.

Can anyone recommend a good uninstall program? I know windows has one,
but as far as I am aware the standard windows uninstaller tends to
leave parts of files on your PC. I used to use Revo uninstall which
uninstalls programs but then scans for left over traces of the program
and then removes those two, but it looks like this doesn't work with
jaws, so I was just wondering if anyone's has any alternative
suggestions which work well with jaws?

Excel freezing

Tewai Halatau
 

Hello all. I am using Excel 2016 with the latest JAWS. I cannot quite pin-point when Excel started freezing, but it has been happening for a few months now. I am working away in my spreadsheet for about 5 minutes, and then suddenly I cannot move any where, Excel refuses to close, and I usually have to restart everything by rebooting.
It is driving me crazy, since Excel was one of my most favourite apps. Now I fear opening it, and I am seriously thinking of switching to Sheets.
Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Tewai

Hi, Val. This is another adjustment you will need to make in Sounds. Tap your Windows key, put in the word Sounds, and click on the Change System Sounds entry which comes up. What you will want to look for is the event called

Desktop Mail Notification

The sound which is associated with this event is usually

Windows Notify Email.wav

All you do to change this sound is arrow to another sound in the sound list and click Apply.

Hi Val,

There are a couple of easier steps to achieve a faster running PC at start up. Someone did suggest a re install of windows, but if you're running windows 10, which I think from a previous post about something else you said you were you can just reinstall windows without formatting  or creating USB drives etc , it’s a really straight forward thing to do using windows 10. The other thing you can do is stop the start up programs running  when your PC starts. Again there are a couple of ways to do this and some are quite straight forward. I haven't been following this post so not sure if someone has already suggested these fixes or whether you've sorted the problem yet, but if you haven't let me know and I'd be happy to help

I joined this list because i'm a very unexperienced Jaws and computer user. also, to get help and support not to be pulled up for going on and on about a subject!

By the way, i don't feel i've been guilty of! If people ask me questions, then, i'm sure you'll agree,, it would be rude not to reply to them.

I would like to say at this point, that i appreciate all the kind people who have done nothing but be willing to help, and to thank them all very much.

In due of this comment, i hope it will be a while before i need to post to this list!

In the meantime, i'll look for a support list in the uk, and if i find one, will unsubscribe from this one.

Thanks once again to all the kind and helpful friends i've made on this, and i'm sorry i've been a trouble!


Val.

There are a couple of easier steps to achieve a faster running PC at start up. Someone did suggest a re install of windows, but if you're running windows 10, which I think from a previous post about something else you said you were you can just reinstall windows without formatting or creating USB drives etc , it’s a really straight forward thing to do using windows 10. The other thing you can do is stop the start up programs running when your PC starts. Again there are a couple of ways to do this and some are quite straight forward. I haven't been following this post so not sure if someone has already suggested these fixes or whether you've sorted the problem yet, but if you haven't let me know and I'd be happy to help

Re: JAWS losing place & going to sleep

Michal Nowicki
 

Denise,

 

I have the same issue. It appears this is a bug specific to JAWS 2018 that FreedomScientific has not yet squashed. The best workaround until FS fixes the problem I can recommend is to set a temporary placemarker (Ctrl Windows k) on the web page just before you Alt Tab away from it, and then navigate to it when you return to the page by pressing the letter k. I hope this helps.

Also when I’m in a word document & I pause for a few seconds it is like JAWS goes to sleep.  I have to arrow up & down to read the line or continue typing.  Is there a setting to fix this & why does it do this?

Re: An Excel Question

Chris Chaffin
 


I understand what you are trying to do. Have you tried the f6 keystroke to see if that would switch you back and forth?
I know this is normally the keystroke when switching between different panes within a window.

If this does not work, how about using monitor cells?  I know you can assign different cells to be monitor cells so you can quickly check the cell with a simple keystroke.
You can read about monitor cells and what keystrokes are involved in the Jaws help.

A quick question on Excel. I am prefacing this by saying that I was a low vision user before so I am not sure you can do this with JAWS. I work sometimes with big spreadsheets where changes at the top have an impact on cells in the bottom and when I am verifying that all formulas are correct I used to use a split screen. Is there a way to navigate back and forth between those screens with a JAWS keystroke? There is a workaround that I can do by making copies of the workbook but if I can use the split screen I would prefer it.

Re: Attention Quentin or Joseph, Personal Accounting Package accessible with Jaws

Paul Hunt <prhunt1@...>
 

Hello. I’m a former Quicken Deluxe user and switched to Moneytalks. Moneytalks is self voicing so you don’t need JAWS to use it. I don’t use the download feature. I enter my transactions manually and clear them when they clear my bank. I imported my Quicken transactions to get started. The check writing feature also works very well.

On Mar 4, 2018, at 12:22 PM, ely.r@... wrote:

Afternoon,

I used Quicken successfully for years. I had lost my install and purchased the newest version that turn out to be an accessibility nightmare.

 

In looking about, what I ended up doing was purchasing Money Talks the APH product that self-voices or works with JAWS, but have not tried it with NVDA, but will and report back. To be honest, since I made that purchase I have not given it the time I should. However it does allow for download of bank account information and lets one do basic checkbook and savings account management.

 

Your note made me think to look at Quick Books accessibility and the search turned up an older article at AFB’s Access World. The link is at:

http://www.afb.org/afbpress/pubnew.asp?DocID=aw150502

 

It was promising but dated 2014. It mentioned the joint work done by Intuit and  Blind Spot . Reference to Blind Spot is at:

Clearly Quick Books is more than I need and its pricey.  At the Blind Spot I went to their store to see about the scripts and training materials

You can purchase the following there.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2018, My Blind Spot JAWS scripts for Quickbooks, and Support Materials

$525.00

Under FAQs I found:

14) Where can I get the NVDA version of the scripts?

Is anyone having any success using personal accounting packages with Jaws.  I currently use Microsoft Money and that software has been discontinued by Microsoft.  Recently my bank, TD Bank, has made major changes to their online system and I can no longer export bank transactions to my MS Money.

 

I heard that Quicken is not accessible and I tried Cash Manager and I really do not like it.  I have 23 years of transactions that I do not want to lose.
