No.  I don't know how much more clear I can be about wanting to be able to trigger this directly out of the JAWS "List of Links" dialog.

Of course there's a web browser running underneath in order to get said dialog, but I have yet to find a way to activate a link directly from the dialog that will force it to open in a separate tab of its own.

That discrepancy also was what I first noticed, she is talking about Office 365 and then about Outlook 2010. I guess you can have an Office 365 subscription and not install Office 2016 but use Office 2010 instead, but the amount of potential issues with such a setup is so great I wouldn’t even go there and after all, one of the benefits of an Office 365 subscription is that you have access to the latest version of Office and while I agree that in Office 2010 a few things were quite easy and yes, even a bit more accessible, it is so old by now that it also comes with a lot of problems.

If you have Office 365, and you left Outlook 2010 installed, there is your problem. Office 365 installs Outlook 2016. You should not be running two versions together. At least that is my understanding. Even though it may not be jaws related, you use Jaws, so I'd highly suggest calling Microsoft accessibility: 1-800-936-5900.

Does anyone know how to throw focus on to the Firefox menu button (not the classic menu, via ALT or ALT plus letter) and then navigate to the buttons to its left?

Without keyboard access to this area it's impossible to fire up the Read Aloud add-on, which means it's completely inaccessible to its primary target demographic.

moderated Re: Focused inbox in Microsoft Outlook for Windows

Steve Griffiths
 


There is an area above the list of messages which contains options for it. I've got a search facility, ways to sort the list of messages, and the Focused and Other buttons when I'm in Focused Inbox, or All and Unread when I'm not in Focused Inbox.

From my Inbox list of messages I can Tab into this area. I have to Tab four times to get to the Focused button, and once more for the Other button. But if I keep Tabbing, I never return to the Inbox list of messages, which is weird. I either have to choose an option and press Enter, or press Escape to get back to my list of messages.

I found that you can move a message from "focused" to "other" using an

way is to move to the buttons that switch between the "focused" and "other"
messages in the inbox.

Other than that, I haven't encountered any problems so far.

I'm trying to manage my mail better by invoking the "focused inbox" option
in Outlook for Windows (the latest version installed from Office 365).

After turning on Focused Inbox within the View tab, what's the easiest way
to switch between the "focused" and "other" inboxes, and to move messages
between the two?

Focused Inbox works well under Microsoft Outlook for iOS, but it isn't
obvious how to use it with JAWS (or any other screen reader) under Windows.
So, hints would be welcome from those who have been there already.

Surely, it's easier to focus on the to field if you want to spell the Email address, and press JAWS key and Up Arrow twice quickly. This will spell out the Email address. No need to paste it anywhere.

moderated Re: installing printer drivers

 

Kevin,

          Virtually all printer hardware or multifunction hardware is plug and play under Windows 10.  "Windows solutions" is code speak for plug the thing in and let Windows install a driver that works.

          That being said, this really depends on the age of the printer.  If you're trying to use something like an ancient Deskjet model or the like there will not be any built-in drivers under Win10 for it.  If this is the case I would try downloading whatever the last and latest set of Windows drivers were from the HP site and try installing those.  I have seen drivers from as early as Windows 7 sometimes work, and most from the Windows 8/8.1 era will work.

           If the printer predates that era you may need to find a new one.

Chances are, you can do what you want.

Can you record system sound with Goldwave?

I'm looking for something that I can record something from iTunes or
Windows Media Player, and the recording will stop when the track ends.
Does this sound like something Goldwave can do?

Does Goldwave play nice with JAWS?

Thanks,
Amanda

Not everyone on these lists live hand to mouth or find themselves in dire straights. Some of us are in fact business owners and professionals who do well for ourselves and our family’s.

Recognizing the unique challenges, financial and otherwise the community that we find ourselves in and that have to deal with no matter how we ended up being part of that community. Be it through illness, age, accident or some other means and applauding any effort that is made to make accessible any tools that can only improve ones living situation is not somehow a slippery slope for advocating to live off of the government or license to wallow in self-pity.

John Bradford: “there but for the grace of God go I” and all that.

Again, for a lot of us, this development has no real tangible impact, but for those who have a need and do not have the means readily available to them regardless of why, this really is great news for them. No matter what VFO’s motives are.

Hello Dan and everyone,

 

                Thank you! It's great not to be alone in this thinking.

 

Mary's new desktop was built for her by a company here in San Antonio called "Computer Nerdz."For anyone living in the Austin and San antonio areas their Website is: http://www.computernerdz.com

 

                Last year they built this machine with top-of-the-line components and we use their Proactive Monitoring Service to keep it free from threats. They'll be building me a new desktop later this year.

 

                They're very good about getting technicians out when you need them even on Sunday afternoons. Many of their technicians are familliar with Jaws and other assistive technology and will work closely with those who use this technology to be sure all works correctly when their repairs are done. They have also helped us with Roku-related matters too.

 

Like Dan some of us chose to find alternatives to vocational rehabilitation for obtaining VFO and other assistive technology products we need for school, work, and whatever else. Perhaps a little more outreaching and a little less scorning would enable others here to do the same.

Yes, both we as blind individuals and advocacy groups bear some of the blame for ongoing unemployment rates.  So as a self employed individual one of my burdens is to see this rate decreased.  I sit here willing to help work at a grass roots level with ideas to slow or end this problem.

Your accusations against Computers for the Blind  are totally outrageous and out of line.  They provide a valuable service, and I can attest from personal experience that their refurbished computers are not defective as you imply.  In fact, I am composing this message on a refurbed Dell Optiplex desktop that I acquired from them three years ago, and it works perfectly.  As ffor blind people getting out into the work force, the unemployment rate, by the NFB’s own admission is 70%, a figure which has not changed in decades, and a situation for which, as far as I am concerned, the blindness advocacy groups must bear part of the blame. And exactly what type of employment “opportunity” are you talking about?  Fuller Brush salesman?Avon lady?  Tupperware party?Multilevel marketing scheme?   Give me a break.

Good afternoon everyone,

 

                While we're glad they're working to make Jaws available on their computers Computers to Help People itself leaves lots to be desired! We know of cases where they sold used computers to blind persons that had hardware that was older than they were told it was. They don't offer their own tech support service, and offer equipment that is deffective and seriously out-of-date.

 

                While it's true unemployment is a serious issue among the blind it's also true that blind persons are presented with business and other opportunities that could give them more than any job could. We know this from having offering our opportunity to blind individuals who either flat turned it down or got involved and didn't remain committed to making it work for them. Our advice to anyone wanting assistive technology or want to upgrade your current technology and to skip the rehab rat race if opportunity comes calling it's legal and credible and you know the person presenting it to you, answer the door, let it in, get on board, and make it happen!

 

                There's no reason why blind persons offered such opportunities should be using junked hardware and seriously out-of-date software. It's your responsibility to develop the needed income streams to keep your equipment and applications current. Failure to do this will be a lack of responsibility on your part! The same also goes for viewing those who have done this successfully as braggers, show-offs etc. Someone who wanted to simply brag about their achievements wouldn't offer to help others do what they accomplished. Such thinking only keeps people broke and forces them to be relegated to using cast-off equipment!

 

                We have done what we're suggesting and will gladly discuss this subject off-list. We received a steamy reminder of our responsibility to have income sorces available for when life happens this past weekend. Late friday evening our air conditioning went out and wasn't repaired until late Saturday evening. Because we took responsibility and positioned ourselves to meet unexpected life challenges we had reserves available from "Yes" decisions we made when opportunity came around. We were able to gtake refuge in a local hotel until our apartment had cooled down to where we could return home.

 

                Mary and I wish to urge everyone to follow our example so you can buy current hardware and software and receive the quality support needed to keep it in ship shape. All the best for a great weekend.

 

Peter Donahue

This is pretty cool. For those of us who already have Jaws, probably not a “big deal”, but still. The more who are able to get access to a quality screen reader, the better.

And yes, I am aware of NVDA.

I’ve helped a VI low-income friend get a machine from this organization in the past. They do good work.

Once you get past the initial purchase of Jaws, if you price out the SMAs, it’s basically a $5.00 monthly subscription anyway.

GoldWave will work with most Windows versions. What I brought up was about your recording Windows sounds, and therefore things you hear over the speakers. Download GoldWave and read about how to select recording what you hear in the manual, and then decide if you want to pay for it. You can use all of its functions before you pay. 
Chances are, you can do what you want. 
Best to try it and see.

You will want to read the manual sections about selecting your recording

You also will want the Goldwave scripts for Jaws, in which case it works
very well with Jaws.  Here is the link to the scripts.

Not sure if Peter was the person with whom I had a discussion on another list, if so then Peter and his wife use Go Fund Me to beg for money from well-meaning people. Please note that I am not saying this is so since I can’t remember the name of the person, so, Peter, if you and your wife are gainfully employed or run a small business then forgive my assumption.
