screen coordinates

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

 

I need the X,Y coordinates of a particular point on the screen   so a macro can be made to left click on that point when required.

 

 

Is it possible to  have Jaws determine and read out the X,Y coordinates of  the desired point and if so, how?

 

 

Thanks

Tom

So, hitting the Windows key with the letter D or, with the letter M doesn’t take you to your desktop where you can recover?

Well, since I have no idea why that is happening. I'd suggest you call Microsoft Accessibility: 800-936-5900
Though, it sounds like perhaps your alt key might be sticking. I am assuming you release the alt-tab when you land on the program you are wanting to focus on.

Alt-Tab is the keystroke to switch between open programs.
JAWS says task switching. Apparently it is saying that even when there are no programs open.
But, Al-Tab has no other function. So, if you are pressing alt-tab, then that is what is causing that.

Re: Anyone using the ADT website with JAWS?

What version of jaws are you using?  I'm using jaws version 16.  I didn't have to create a profile but maybe that is something that will have to be looked at.  Other than that I didn't notice any problems with the web cite.  I usually talk to someone to get things done..

Hi,

 

I’m trying to create a profile on ADT’s “myadt” section of their website. I have followed all the directions but still find myself in a loop without making any real headway. Do any of you know if it is accessible with JAWS and I’m just doing something wrong? Or if it is simply unaccessible?

 

Thanks for any help.

Different browsers

David & his pack of dogs <myguidedogis@...>
 

My step daughter was in town for about 5 days, leaving today.  To give her something to do, I asked her if she would help me on my Facebook account loading pics and assigning text to each.  She used I E and got frustrated.  Then she tried Google Chrome to work on my YouTube channel.  She found it much easier to work with.  It should be noted she is sighted and we worked on both projects for about 12 hours, staying up till about 5:30 AM this morning.  I am curious the pics at the Facebook page The Diamond Touch Dog Rehabilitation Center, does V O, Jaws or the screen reader software that an Android device comes with, give a description of the Pics? The reason it took so long was, there was about 270 pics including videos and she found things that were supposed to be fixed up by someone else, were not.  For example, my bio had me working at a guide dog school.  Alright, those who have gone to guide dog schools, yes, it is work however, we are not employed by the school. Anyway, if anyone has the time, give me feedback as one of the things I was supposed to work on was making my pages more accessible. The gratitude towards her cannot be under estimated as she did it for free whereas others got paid for it.

ITeleport

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I have this program called ITeleport, which allows one to share their computer screen with a sighted friend. My friend, Markus Johnson (yes, that's "Markus" with a "k", not a "c"), was the one who introduced me to it, and he and I use it on a regular basis to make mouse scripts with Axife Mouse Recorder. So what I'd like to find out is, will JAWS 15 with OCR understand the buttons and controls in ITeleport? Or will I have to have someone make scripts for the program?

Try this:

2. Activate the “Group By” command (G)

Within the drop-down list, activate (None).

Hopefully, that restores the normal view.

Jaws, Magic, Office 2013 combo causing crashes

Amy Bower
 

Hi All - just returning to this list after a long break, so my apologies if this topic has been covered. My basic set up is Windows 7 with Office 2013. When I upgraded to Jaws 18, and then Jaws2018, along with Magic 14, I got repeated crashes of Jaws and/or Magic that required reboot to recover. Happened on two platforms. Seemed to occur mostly when using Office applications (Outllook, Word, maybe PowerPoint). Would get several crashes per day, so had to roll back to Jaws 17 and Magic 13.1. I want to use new features available in Jaws 2018, but can't live with the constant instability. Registered a complaint with VFO that was thrown up to the developers, but no fix or response (that was months ago). Wondering if anyone else encountered this and/or found a fix? Will upgrading to Windows 10 and/or Office 2016 solve the problem?
Thanks.
-Amy B.
