Hi again, Tom. Would you be interested in doing a JAWS Tandem with me? If so, I could check your Accessibility options in Internet Explorer.

 

I have Windows 10, and am using Internet Explorer version 11. My version of Internet Explorer’s system sounds being on is not registry dependent.

 

Thank you.

Thanks, Cathy.

 

At least I now know it isn’t just me.  (smile)

 

I guess things have changed with the latest iteration of Internet Explorer 11.

 

May just give Microsoft Accessibility a call.

 

At least I can now get my download completion sounds in Firefox, which I use as my main internet browser anyway.

 

And, I’m planning to download and install Chrome as yet another browser option.

I was looking for this a bit ago for a student. Unfortunately, it seems this option is configured in the Windows registry.  I don’t feel comfortable giving instructions for accessing the registry but you can do a Google search for detailed instructions or ask Microsoft Accessibility to check it for you.

                              Hello, everyone.

 

First, before I say anything, I want to express my appreciation for this list, and for those who have been helping me with my latest internet browser issues.

 

I now have successfully gotten the download completion notification sound to work in Firefox 61.

 

However, I’m still having trouble getting it to work in internet explorer  11 here.

 

In IE, I have made sure that the “notify me when download is complete” option is checked.

 

However, in IE 11, when I go to accessibility, I can’t seem to find the needed option to turn download completion sounds on.

 

If someone can give me some additional instructions as to where to find this option and how to get there in IE 11, I’d appreciate that very much.

 

Thank you!

Hi, Tom. If you go to Internet Options>Advanced, and go to the Accessibility section, it is the fourth entry down: Play System Sounds. It may say this option is off. Just press Space Bar, and tab to Apply.

Re: Question On Eversync Firefox Add-on For Syncing Internet Explorer Favorites With Firefox Bookmarks

But I understand that plain old favorites won’t work beyond Firefox version 52.

 

I had plain old favorites, and used it all of the time, up through Firefox 52, and hate to see it not work any longer.

Firefox and Internet can’t sync with one another unless you use a Firefox plugin.

 

This is a plugin used by a lot of people. It seems popular and will sync bookmarks between the two browsers:

I don’t’ think the issue is importing, but rather synchronizing bookmarks between the two browsers.  I too have been in search of something similar. I used to use PlainOldFavorites which accomplished this with IE and FF, but have stopped using IE for a while now and POF is a dead add-on at this point too.

I would like to have something that would keep bookmarks synchronized between FireFox and Chrome. I tried XMMarks for a bit, but wasn’t terribly impressed and it shut down anyway.

Has anyone in fact tried Eversync to keep bookmarks synchronized between these two browsers? Is it a seamless process?

You can import bookmarks through your Firefox Library. I think it would be easier:

 

1. Open the Firefox library (CTRL-SHIFT-B)

2. Open the “Import and Backup” menu (ALT-I)

3. Within the menu, activate “Import Data from another Browser”

4. Within the resulting dialog is a set of radio buttons, select the browser from which you’d like to import bookmarks

5. Activate the “Next” button

6. The next screen has checkboxes to import Cookies, Saved Passwords and Favorites, if you want to import all of them, leave the options checked

7. Activate the “Next” button

8. After reviewing the information, activate the “Finish” button

 

The data is imported into Firefox.

OH wow, it still works with the latest Firefox? I thought it was going to die like a lot of the other older firefox add-ons. Either way, not an issue for me anymore. Ditched IE a while ago.

Now, synchronization between Chrome and Firefox…That’s something else.

Under options you go to advanced tab, then down to accessibility and make sure play system sounds is on.

Hello, everyone.



I am currently using Outlook 2016 with Office 365 and the latest version of
Jaws 2018 on a windows 7 laptop.



Recently, I have noticed that Outlook now places e-mails with a high
importance designation at the top of my in-box message list, irrespective of
the date and time of those messages.



While this is helpful in terms of reminding me of the importance level
associated with the message, I still prefer to have my in-box messages
arranged with my most recent message at the top of the message list.



Does anyone know how I can change my in-box message list so that the
messages are arranged chronologically from most recent to oldest,
irrespective of their level of importance?



So far, I haven't found the option to do this, and am not sure how things
got changed in the first place.

Has anyone on list had experience with the Eversync add-on in Firefox?  If so, can you tell me how to configure it to continually sync my IE internet favorites with Firefox?

 

Thanks as always for the help.

Re: Question On Eversync Firefox Add-on For Syncing Internet Explorer Favorites With Firefox Bookmarks

Cristóbal
 

I don’t’ think the issue is importing, but rather synchronizing bookmarks between the two browsers.  I too have been in search of something similar. I used to use PlainOldFavorites which accomplished this with IE and FF, but have stopped using IE for a while now and POF is a dead add-on at this point too.

I would like to have something that would keep bookmarks synchronized between FireFox and Chrome. I tried XMMarks for a bit, but wasn’t terribly impressed and it shut down anyway.

Has anyone in fact tried Eversync to keep bookmarks synchronized between these two browsers? Is it a seamless process?

You can import bookmarks through your Firefox Library. I think it would be easier:

 

1. Open the Firefox library (CTRL-SHIFT-B)

2. Open the “Import and Backup” menu (ALT-I)

3. Within the menu, activate “Import Data from another Browser”

4. Within the resulting dialog is a set of radio buttons, select the browser from which you’d like to import bookmarks

5. Activate the “Next” button

6. The next screen has checkboxes to import Cookies, Saved Passwords and Favorites, if you want to import all of them, leave the options checked

7. Activate the “Next” button

8. After reviewing the information, activate the “Finish” button

 

The data is imported into Firefox.

Hello, everyone.



Thanks to a fellow list member, my Outlook message ordering

I simply had a memory lapse regarding how to get into the

I very much appreciate this list!



I have another quiry that I might send along a bit later.

Tom:

1. Alt-F-T-M.
2. I believe second or third tab has ascending or Descending
checked. I like ascending too.

As for the importance, that sounds like some kind of flag,
and I know nothing about what to do in that case.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Hello, everyone.



I am currently using Outlook 2016 with Office 365 and the
latest version of Jaws 2018 on a windows 7 laptop.



Recently, I have noticed that Outlook now places e-mails
with a high importance designation at the top of my in-box
message list, irrespective of the date and time of those
messages.



While this is helpful in terms of reminding me of the
importance level associated with the message, I still prefer
to have my in-box messages arranged with my most recent
message at the top of the message list.



Does anyone know how I can change my in-box message list so
that the messages are arranged chronologically from most
recent to oldest, irrespective of their level of importance?



So far, I haven't found the option to do this, and am not
sure how things got changed in the first place.

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.

Tom,

I think I can help with at least one of your questions. In IE, while using the download manager (CTRL j), one of the options is to alee you when a download complete. Make sure this is checked. 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. I think you’d also need this enabled. I’m not sure how to let you know when a download completes/play sounds in Firefox as I don’t use it … sorry about that! 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,

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.

web navigation question

Van Lant, Robin
 

All,

It seems that web design is including more pop-ups that visually present on top of the web page, but that are not a separate dialog box per se.  In my experiences, it is hit or miss as to whether a screen reader will place focus on this pop up.  If not, I cannot figure out how to get to it.  I’m encountering this a lot on SharePoint at work, but I’ve seen this in other websites.  Sometimes the pop-up  is a confirmation window and other times is a link I clicked on to open some sort of extra information.  

 

What advice do you have on accessing these?  If JAWS does not automatically get focus there or if I somehow get taken away from focus, I cannot figure out how to get back to the pop-up.
