In the advanced tab of Internet Options (alt t and up arrow once to get there before choosing the specified tab), there should be an option to “play sounds from web pages” or something similar.

Back in IE, and in the options dialogue of the download manager, you can specify where you’d like your downloads to go. It’s actually one of the first options you find. After pressing CTRL j, you’ll be in the options and a brows button. Just press this and either type of otherwise find the folder you’d like your downloads to complete into. If you don’t know how to brows for your folder without typing it in, press shift tab after getting into the brows dialogue. Do this until you come to your tree view of folders. Tab once to what’s in the first folder you find. If you don’t like the location, press your backspace key until you get to your user folder. It can be a little tricky here, so make sure you’re on the user folder first. Then arrow to where you’d like your downloads to go. You can open this folder, but it’s very important to hit the “select folder” button still on the options page of IE’s download manager. Please ask the group if I’ve not gotten something right here—I’ve not used these options/changed them in a while.

Hope this helps, and have a nice day,

Subject: Two Internet browser questions

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Over the past day or so, I have been updating Firefox, and working with Internet Explorer 11 as my alternate internet browser.

 

So far, through all of this, things have been going relatively well, and I want to publicly thank Bill White, one of our list members, for all of his help.

 

I have two general  internet browser questions that, so far, I haven’t been able to resolve.

 

1.  Before I did all of this work, I used to get a sound in both Firefox and Internet Explorer when a file download was complete.  I no longer get that sound, and wonder how to get it back.

 

And

 

2.  How can I change my destination folder in Internet Explorer so that all downloads are saved in  a folder location that I prefer.  I’ve got Firefox to put the files where I want them, but can’t seem to find how to do that in Internet Explorer.

 

Thanks for the assistance.

Thanks, Jason.

 

This is helpful, since I also plan to download and install Chrome at some point.

 

It’s always good to have several browser alternatives.

 

It’s a shame, though, that they don’t all function the same, and involve different procedures for getting desired features to work.

You didn’t mention Chrome, but for the sake of completeness, I should note that JAWS gives an announcement when you start a download and another when the download finishes, informing you that Shift-F6 will take you to the download options. From there, you can open the file, show it in File Explorer, etc.

 

This functionality is relatively new, and definitely works in Chrome 67.

Re: Two Internet browser questions

 

Tom,

            In IE11 Internet Options dialog, advanced tab, there is a checkbox for "Notify when downloads complete," and I'd definitely check to see if that is checked.  There is also a checkbox for "Play System Sounds" under the accessibility section of the Advanced tab, and that might have an influence, too.   As far as saving location goes, I do not see a way to permanently set that or to permanently set it to ask you each time.  However, the Save button in the notification that comes up is a split button that does a straight save to downloads by default, but you can choose Save As to get the effect you're looking for, which presents the standard Save As dialog that allows you to navigate where you'd like.

            For Firefox, there is an add-on that supports a download complete sound and is compatible with Firefox Quantum.  See Download Sound by BPS.
I don't recall Firefox ever doing this as a native function.

moderated Re: Opening a link in a new tab from the "List of Links" dialog

 

Steve,

          Thanks for the suggestions, but they do not address the issue and it's been determined that it cannot be addressed directly from within the list of links dialog, which is what I was hoping for.

           I know all of the tricks to get a link one is sitting on in the web browser itself to open in either a new window or tab, but it would have been so convenient to be able to tell JAWS to tell the browser to do the same from inside that dialog, but it can't be done.

As for why this command is changing: the upcoming feature update to Windows 10 (Redstone 5) introduces cloud clipboard, a way to copy and paste texts and small files across devices. When this feature was introduced in a Windows Insider Preview build, Windows+V was assigned to cloud clipboard, thus Windows+Shift+V is now used to cycle through toasts (this reminds me: I need to make this clear the next time I send out screen reader advisories for Redstone 5…).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Joseph. Since Toast Notification will be changing from Windows Key plus V to Windows key plus Shift plus V, what will be used to cycle through notifications in reverse order. This is currently Windows key plus Shift plus V. I tried to find out why the change is being made, but couldn’t find anything on it. Could you explain why the change is being made?

The quickest way that I’ve found is to use Alt+F within Office to get to the backstage view, then move down to the Office Account tab with Down-Arrow, then use the tab key to move across to the updates control, where you can press a button to install updates.

OH yeah. It's rather annoying.
Say if I switch from the calendar tab to the inbox and I’m in the body of the message, Jaws will sometimes just speak the calendar stuff I was just at. The annoying part is when Jaws does this, the navigation keys won't work. I can arrow up or down or by paragraph or even type if I'm emailing or whatever and Jaws is stuck on this text. In order to get focus properly back, I either have to alt plus tab and then back or maybe a control plus sshift plus tab and back.
That or say if I'm in a calendar appointment and am in the notes section of the appointment, Jaws will again, speak the other part of the appointment window (appt time and or address) or some other text like the associated email account and again, I have to shift tab and then tab back to get proper focus to have Jaws read where I actually am or where I can review what I just typed and so on.
This can happen while I'm in the middle of doing something or if the screen is idle.
I've got the fully installed Office 2016 program on my systems so I don't know if that makes any sort of difference with the Office 365 apps.

Happens all the time in Outlook 2016. What's worse is that refreshing the page doesn't do anything and Jaws will not read what's currently on the page without you having to alt plus tab out of the window or maybe tab or shift tab depending on the window you're on.

transition being made while JAWS is in the midst of reading on one
page while the next one loads, but after JAWS has already had reading
stopped on the currently displayed page prior to initiating the transition to the next.

I can never recall this occurring in older versions of JAWS though,
since I don't use JAWS routinely, I might not have encountered the
behavior in the past.

What gives, and is there a way to stop this from happening?

Can this be done?

I tried CTRL plus hitting enter to activate the link, but it always replaces the contents of the tab that had focus when you invoked the "show list of links" dialog with INS+F7.

I would like to be able to imitate what can be done with CTRL+Left Click in a tabbed browser, which forces the link clicked upon to open in a new tab, but I'll be darned if I can figure out a way when the link selection is occurring via the list of links dialog.

Even if it can be stated, definitively, that this cannot be done then I can come up with a workaround.  When you're trying to read a newspaper it's a lot easier to open the articles of potential interest in their own tabs so that one can go back to "the front page" or "the main page of the sports section" or similar than it is to keep having to reload them and start all over again.

Re: Searching in Outlook for emails

Debby Hill
 

Hi John,

 

Which version of search are you using? If you are using control + E then F6 doesn’t work. I haven’t used this command, but with my playing with it F6 doesn’t get you to the search results—tab does. If you are using control + shift + F then once you hear “find now” from JAWS, the F6 should work. After pressing F6 if it is blank, then you don’t have any results. If you haven’t used it before, the control + shift + F is an advanced search and it has many options, so you need to make sure you have the correct information in the right places.

 

Hope that helps!
