Re: retrying downloads in Firefox

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Did you try the touch cursor

On Jul 4, 2018, at 7:20 AM, BlindedByTheLight <blindedbythelight@comcast.net> wrote:

All,

Sometimes when downloading files in Firefox, I receive a "Failed" notification in my downloads list. JAWS reads the name of the file, the word "Failed", the time of the download, and the word Retry. I have tried several ways to get to this retry button (applications key, Shift-F10, tab, even Control+R), but cannot figure out how to access this button/link/option. The JAWS cursor nor OCR even seem to read the downloads list, seemingly because the font is too small.

I know I can go back to a place and simply restart the download manually, but it would be convenient to know how to get to this option from within the downloads list.

Anyone ever succeeded with this in JAWS?

Hope I am not missing something obvious!

Thank you as always!

Mike

Hi Morné,

 

Jaws 2018 has the ability to read PDF files as well.  Highlight the PDF file, but don't open it, open the context menu by pressing the applications / context menu key or shift + F10, arrow down to, Recognize with Jaws or something similar, and press enter.

Hello listers,

 

I’m a new user of JAWS, so please forgive if this question has already been asked.

 

I’m using the latest version of JAWS and Windows 10.

 

I tried to read PDF documents with Microsoft Edge and JAWS with no success.  Then I tried to set the default program (Acrobat Reader) via the control pannel also with no success.  The only defaults I get to change is for music, email and videos but no option to change the default PDF to Acrobat Reader DC.  There’s another screen reader wich works with Edge, but I do prefer to use JAWS. 

 

Any advice would be apreciated.

 

Kind regards

MiKTex (LaTex) Program

Elise Berkley
 

Hello, everyone.

I am teaching myself to use MikTex (LaTex) program. I have just created my first sample document. I saved it and compiled it by pressing control + T. But, when I do this, I cannot read the document. I do not know how to get it from a ".tex" file to a ".dvi" file so I can read it in a pdf viewer. Does anyone know what step I am missing after compiling? Thanks.

Re: Jfw and PDF files

 

If you open a PDF file in Adobe and it is not the default it should ask what app you want to use for PDF files and you should be able to select Adobe and tell it to always use it. Otherwise you can go to Settings > Apps > Default apps and click on “Select app by file type” or something very similar to that. It will take a bit of time for this screen to open and you unfortunately have to tab through to “PDF”, the list is alphabetical and it is a lot of tabbing. Anyways, if you currently have Edge selected as the default, once you get to PDF it will says something like “PDF, Edge button”, press the spacebar and tab to Adobe DC, then press enter and Adobe will be selected as the default app to open PDF files. Keep in mind that obviously Adobe has to be first installed on the system.

Has anyone had problems with the latest version of audible's download manager?

Hi list members, i'd like to know if anyone has had problems with audible's download manager working with jaws 16? I ask this question because it seems that audible wants you to use iTunes instead of windows media player which I have because i'm using windows 10 on my system. What have audible users found that works when it comes to downloading audio books from audible's cite? Thank you for any information that you might have.

Hi Mitch.

If you’re talking about the old standard of ALT+TAB to switch tasks, Windows 10 has an additional way to activate this option, and that’s hitting WINDOWS+TAB.  Unlike ALT+TAB, where you switch to a task and then release the keys to get to your task, WINDOWS+TAB brings up a dialogue where you can arrow through your tasks.  I like this method better, because I can arrow through the tasks quicker than hitting two keys.  To activate a task, just press ENTER.  To cancel out of the above task switching, hit ESC.

Hope that was what you were wanting.

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Hi,

Pressing alt and tab cycles you through open programs on your pc releasing alt tabl then opens that program. Normally. There is an alternative method for  task switching which is ctrl, alt and tab,  this sounds more like what you are experiencing   since releasing the keys will not open the program but leave you in the task  switching  window  and the tab or cursor keys just move between the list of running programs. To exit this mode pressing enter on a program will open that program or pressing escape exits  the task switching mode.  Not sure if you've already tried this but if you haven't hopefully it solves your problem.

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.

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.

Are you hitting Alt -Tab?

Hi Bob,
 
See if this will help you:

Greetings:  On occasion I somehow invoke Task Switching.

I have no idea how this happens and, more to the point, I do not know how to escape to return to my previous state of operation.

Are there keystrokes to defeat this condition and, bonus points here, can someone explain the proper application of this feature please.  Many thanks.

Mitch

Hi Mitch.

If you’re talking about the old standard of ALT+TAB to switch tasks, Windows 10 has an additional way to activate this option, and that’s hitting WINDOWS+TAB.  Unlike ALT+TAB, where you switch to a task and then release the keys to get to your task, WINDOWS+TAB brings up a dialogue where you can arrow through your tasks.  I like this method better, because I can arrow through the tasks quicker than hitting two keys.  To activate a task, just press ENTER.  To cancel out of the above task switching, hit ESC.

Hope that was what you were wanting.

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Take Care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

Pressing alt and tab cycles you through open programs on your pc releasing alt tabl then opens that program. Normally. There is an alternative method for  task switching which is ctrl, alt and tab,  this sounds more like what you are experiencing   since releasing the keys will not open the program but leave you in the task  switching  window  and the tab or cursor keys just move between the list of running programs. To exit this mode pressing enter on a program will open that program or pressing escape exits  the task switching mode.  Not sure if you've already tried this but if you haven't hopefully it solves your problem.

Paul

Actually there programs open. All I can do is listen to it say "task switching" and the name of the open programs as I alt tab. I can do nothing but switch between programs without any further control. Do do a restart I have to ask Cortana because none of my controls work.

Re: known issues with Excel 2016 freezes with JAWS?

Dan Longmore
 

Hi,

  I use Excel 2016, office 365 version, and while it has some minor quirks , works well.  When they throw updates in from Office or JAWS this can bring unexpected issues.  I would compare your 2016 Excel settings with your old ones.  Just guessing here, but there may be an Excel extension or setting under “View” that needs changed and is giving JAWS grief.  The crashing is what makes me go this direction.

Hi,

Running Excel 2016 with JAWS 2018 build 1803.  I've tried to open many files today Excel for work and been getting everything from really sluggish movement around the file to JAWS freezing when in Excel.   Next week I think my laptop will get reimaged to resolve an unrelated issue and I hope to get the latest release of JAWS installed, but just wanting to know of any known issue in Excel 2016.  This issue is really problematic with getting my work done.  These are all files that I successfully opened when in Office 2010 and running Window Eyes, but today is my first day opening them on my new system.

Re: Broadcast software by BSI

Dan Longmore
 

Hi,

  Not sure, be careful as some aspects may be accessible and other parts of the program not at all.  Can you do a test with one of their off air computers?  My wife and I work in radio and this has been my experience.  BSI has been around for quite a while so they may offer some assistance.

Hi listers:

A local radio station has asked me about doing some work on the board during local football games.  They say they use software from BSI.  One of the programs

I looked at was called “Simian”.  It does look somewhat accessible, especially if I just need to play a few commercials and such.

Anyone know if BSI products are usable?

Thanks!
