Hi to all evolved with this thread. I started it, yet with all the back and forth no one has proposed a solution that actually gets me out of the "task switching loop" I still regularly get stuck in. Hey, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate all the commentary, it just hasn't helped. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and call FS and/or MS. Take care all!

Hello Paul:

When you have several programs open and Windows has given focus to one of
those programs, the other programs which are open, are not minimized. All
the programs you have open and running, are using the same amount of memory,
regardless as to whether one of them has focus or not. What gets minimized,
are the open display windows for the programs which do not have focus. They
appear as miniaturized versions of the maximized program windows. So, by
definition, the fact that these programs are open and running in the
background and their windows are open and minimized, means they are not
closed. When you hold down the ALT key and tap the TAB key, to cycle through
the list of open programs, each miniaturized window is highlighted, and for
a person who is using a screen reader, what gets spoken by a screen reader,
are the text labels for the miniaturized windows of the programs running in
the background. It is the release of the ALT key on one of the other open
programs with its miniaturized window, which instructs Windows to maximize
that programs window and give focus to that program.

sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hi,

I still disagree, since the program is minimised you need to open that
window, you could argue open is not the right word and that maximise or
restore that window would be more appropriate. But to shift focus implies
moving the view to something which can be seen elsewhere, although you are
right the program is stored in memory its visual representation is removed
when you open a new program, so no matter how much you move the view or
shift focus you cannot then see this program without first restoring that
program window, it is then only at this point you are able to shift focus to
that window. . However all this being said, honestly I think we could all
spend ages arguing/debating the technical definition of what focus means
and whether it does or does not apply to this situation or not, but this has
moved far out of the realms of anything to do with jaws and I don't wish to
block up the mailing list with non jaws related content. so in the interest
of putting the whole focus topic to bed I will take on board everyone's
points and views and just hope that the original poster has managed to solve
his problem.

I support Dave on this one. If you're rotating through a list of things
that are open, how could they be opened any further or better by
focusing on them? Answer: they cannot. Once you load data into memory
and give the supervisor (a.k.a. the operating system) a memory address
to pick up the next instruction, also known as running or opening a
program, that's as open as it gets. Rotating through the open programs,
then releasing the TAB key on one of them, does only one thing that's
special--it allows the user--that's you--to interact with said program
via its interface--namely, any input or output channels said program may
have commandeered for that purpose, such as a keyboard, mouse,
microphone, video display, audio interface, printer, or any other driver
software that acts as the go-between between said program and some
unknown piece of hardware. The only thing that gets opened when
releasing the TAB key whilst cycling through a list of running programs
is that program's user window.

I kind of see your point, but I disagree , I said it cycles through a list

shifts focus , I don't mean to be pedantic myself, but that’s not what it
does, for it to be shifting focus all program windows would need to be
open, but from a technical standpoint that’s not the case, since only the
active program window is actually open all other programs are minimised
whilst not in use and to go to one of the minimised programs you need to
open that window . since a lot of people however don't realise that non
active program windows are actually minimised whilst not in use I think if
I'd used that terminology it could have made my answer more confusing,
although I do guess in hindsight I could have said opens that program
window rather than program to be more accurate.

I do not wish to be pedantic but, ALT+TAB, does not open any program.

If you have several programs open, ALT+TAB, cycles you through the

you have open. When you release both keys, Windows gives focus to that

program.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

 

Hello, again, everyone.

 

As I noted the other day, I have now updated my Firefox internet browser to version 61.

 

Bill White has given me the executable file for a Firefox add-on called Eversync, which is supposed to ssync my Internet Explorer internet favorites with Firefox by adding them to the bookmarks folder.

 

With some sighted assistance, I was able to successfully do the initial syncing, but am now finding that if I add another favorite to Internet Explorer, the new favorite does not get synced into the Firefox Bookmarks folder.

 

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: Download Completion Notification Sound in Firefox And Internet Explorer

CathyAnne Murtha
 

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.

Re: Outlook Inbox Question

Carolyn:

I've got everything back to normal here.

I just had to make some changes in my in-box message folder list view.

The thing that puzzles me is how things got altered in the first place,
since I typically don't go into Outlook to change things once I have them
set up.

Am just chalking it up as one of those cyber mysteries. ... At least, it
was solvable.

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,

So far, I haven't found the option to do this, and am not sure how things
