Subject: Problem due to absence of applications key

Hi all,
I know this may be quite a stupid query but can't develop a work around for this. Being a low vision person, I was used to operating with the mouse with my screen magnifier. Hence, the right click was an essential part of my functioning. When I embraced JAWS, the right click was replaced by the application key on the keyboard. However, my new laptop doesn't have an application key. The only option I have is the * button on the num pad with Num lock off. However, this hardly does the job.
Eagerly await some work arounds.
Thanks a lot.

Hi,
Try Shift and F 10 together, and then arrow down to the choices.
Blessings and All the Very Best,

Hi.

As someone stated, SHIFT+F10 at the same time is what you’d use in place of
the application key, but you might need to set your function keys on the
laptop to Windows. A laptop that I had mapped the function keys to
different functions such as turning on and off WI-FI. I don’t know how to
change this on a laptop.

Hello all,

Can anyone recommend an accessible DVD to MP4 converter? I am hoping to
convert to actual video, not just audio. I hoped Total Recorder would do
it, but when I try to open one of the .VOB files that actually contain the
video, I receive a message that Total Recorder does not support "pure MPEG"
files.

I found plenty of software that claims to do it, including WinDVDX, but they
did not seem to work with JAWS, unless there are scripts I do not know
about.

Any ideas appreciated. Thanks!!!

Hi Tim,

It has been years since I used DVD Audio Extractor, but when I last used it,
it only ripped audio. The website still does not mention any video format
conversion. Can you or anyone else confirm that it will rip to video files
as well now? Thank you for the lead!

Try DVD Audio Extractor. It is very JAWS friendly, and will do any of the

moderated Re: adding a favorite to ms edge

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     To add favorites to Edge, do this. If you’re on the website you’d like to add, press CTRL d. this puts you in the favorite name and favorite URL location. Of course, if you’re using JAWS, it’ll say “Favorite name” on the main section. If you tab once, “favorite URL” is stated by JAWS. Another press of tab gets you into the “save in favorites folder” item. The next press of tab allows you to add the favorite, and the last can allow you to cancel. Once again, when you’re on the site, press CTRL d. you can rename the favorite here if you wish. Tab until you get to the “save in” box, and you can expand this by pressing enter. If you want the favorite to be saved in the defalt folder—mine’s the favorites folder--, you tab to add favorite. Once pressed, JAWS says, “favorite added! Find it in hub.” Just press escape, and you’re done. If you’d like to get to your favorites, press CTRL i. Need any more help? Feel free to write me back/the list again.

Hope this helps, and good day.
