I also use Macrium Reflect to periodically create image backups of my computer.  But you would still need tech-savvy sighted help to restore the image from the backup external hard drive because the rescue disk is totally inaccessible with JAWS.

I use Macrium Reflect to back up my home computer.  I like that with it’s free version you can do disc cloning.  It is also pretty accessible using JAWS.  You do need to use the JAWS cursor to access some functions, but it it works very well.

Hello Richard:

If you are running Windows 7 and you have installed JAVA, and you want to check if Java Access Bridge is checked or not, Do the following:

press WINDOWS KEY+U, to open the "Ease of Access Center".

Tap the TAB key, until you get to "Use the computer without a display". JAWS will tell you that it is a link. Press ENTER, to open it.

Press SHIFT+TAB, until you get to "Enable Java Access Bridge, JAWS will tell you the state of the check box that is associated with this item. If Java is installed, by default, the check box is unchecked. Press the SPACE BAR, to check the check box, to activate Java Access Bridge.

Tab to the "Apply" button and tap the SPACE BAR, to activate it.

Press SHIFT+TAB, until you get to the OK button. Press the ENTER key or the SPACE BAR, TO ACTIVATE IT.

Press ALT+F4, to close the "Ease of Access Center".

HTH

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Re: Do I need Java? Do I have it already?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

I don't know if you need Java or not. My bank uses Java to enable its website for paying bills to work. This is actual Java, not Java script. The way to tell if you have Java is to go to your Control Panel in Windows. If you can use first-letter navigation in your control panel, tap the J key and see if Java Control Panel comes up. If it does, you have Java. If not, you don't.

Is Caret Browsing useful for JAWS users?

Van Lant, Robin
 

I am learning Microsoft Edge, as that is the default browser for my company now.  I see a function called caret browsing, toggled on and off with F7.  A description on the web says it allows users to navigate with a keyboard, especially when selecting text, but it doesn’t’ work like I would expect.  I cannot tell any difference when it is on or off and I’m using JAWS to arrow up and down the web page.  Is anyone aware of a value to this featuere for screen reader users?  Maybe it’s only useful for sighted people.

Yes, IFW is what you want. There are only two versions for Windows--GUI and CUI. Unless you like command-line-interface-driven things, go for the GUI , which is perfectly accessible. When you install it, go into Settings and enable the accessible checkboxes option. The only screen in the whole system where behavior is a little odd is in the summary screen of twenty-two checkable options. The checkboxes don't show up as checkboxes; rather, an X appears next to each checked option, and you have to use your screenreader's own cursor to read its presence or absence. Try it for a month, then you'll see.

Hi, Nino. Your Normal template should be in the following location:

C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

where

username is the actual name of you as the user on your computer. The quotes
are mine, and are not included in the path.

Hello:

I have been having trouble with my office 2016 and word program.

When I try to find text in word word will not find the text.

My tutor can find the text when she tries it using Teamviewer.

I tried to find the template normal.dot so I could renaime itto try to get
word to start fresh.

When I try to search for the template it won't find the template on my
computer it wants to go to the web.

To search I am pressing the windows key and letting up on it and then type
normal.dot can't find it on my computer because the search wants to go out
to the web.


Any help would be appreciated.


Re: Backup

Yes, IFW is what you want. There are only two versions for Windows--GUI and CUI. Unless you like command-line-interface-driven things, go for the GUI , which is perfectly accessible. When you install it, go into Settings and enable the accessible checkboxes option. The only screen in the whole system where behavior is a little odd is in the summary screen of twenty-two checkable options. The checkboxes don't show up as checkboxes; rather, an X appears next to each checked option, and you have to use your screenreader's own cursor to read its presence or absence. Try it for a month, then you'll see.

Greetings,
I vaguely remember discussion about backup software for Windows 10, perhaps Terabyte Unlimited Image for Windows?
I tried exploring their web site and keep ending up with file downloads, but which version is accessible? Or, is there another recommended backup package that is accessible? The one I have came with an external drive from Western Digital and is not very accessible.
Thanks for any help,
Richard

Re: Java update question

Steve Matzura
 

Accept the update. The JAB is no longer a part of the screenreader. It's built in to Java itself nowadays. If you installed it when you first installed Java and it needs updating, it will do it. I have heard nothing bad about Java since version 7, although I still can't get it to do anything useful on my own systems, but that's probably more a Steve Matzura problem than anything else. (smile).

I too get a Java update notification. But, I have been reluctant to do it
because I do not know how it will handle the Java Access Bridge.  Does
anyone know if the update will properly update the JAB?  I use Windows 7 Pro
64 bit under JAWS 15.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi David,

When Java is ready to update I find it in the "System Tray." Press JAWS-key
+ F11 and arrow up and down. Hopefully you will find it there.

Greetings all:

Jaws keeps telling me that a new version of "Java" is ready to be installed,

and to do this "click here" which I  obviously can't see.  When this
notification is announced again what is the best method to locate the "here"

button to commence the download/install?

Sincerely yours,

Re: Is there a way to encourage companies to make accessibility a prioity if you have a large base of users?

Steve Matzura
 

If there is a magic to it, no one has figured it  out in thirty-plus years. It's hit and miss, depending on the motivation of the developer or company. Most plead poverty--not enough staff to dedicate a single person to oversee or implement accessibility. But some, like guys like Ross Levi from Station Playlist, or the Weather Watcher guy, or the Tapin Radio guy, just to name a few prominent ones, are not only amenable to talking about accessibility with their users, but put their money where their mouth is and really do it.

Hi, there should be accessibility as something that should start from the ground up.  I can't see with all the things that are available now that companies are not aware of developer tools that are available to them to make accessibility the first thing that people can notice, especially if the developers no that with in there developers tools of choice that accessibility exist..  I'd like to know how can we educate developers and programmers the best practices to use over all?  Thank you list members for having any information that may help to increase accessibility for many different products even for those companies who may not have considered accessibility to begin with?

Totally with you there! If a “sightee” can rely upon a given anti-virus or security product working, we should have the same option.

If an organization of the blind, like the American Council, or the National Federation, want to fight for something, often things change for the better.  Case in point was the ACB getting involved   with Major League Baseball inaccessibility.  The problem is getting them motivated.

My main question is why hasn't one or both of these groups fought for accessibility of virus protection products?

That is the one and only way that accessibility becomes, well, more accessible.  Using the correct kind of PR spin doesn't hurt, either.  There are no "big bucks" to be made via accessibility but the polishing of one's reputation that comes from making it a priority is a potential goldmine.  I don't think that either Microsoft or Apple, two of the biggest companies making accessibility a base expectation, are doing so because it improves their bottom line in the conventional sense, yet they're definitely getting something out of it and that's worth noting and encouraging.

Creating corporate cultures where accessibility is an expectation, rather than an afterthought if it's thought of at all, is the way forward.  At the moment, it seems the tide is shifting in that direction, at least for companies where that's practical (and, yes, it's much more difficult for tiny companies with limited resources than it is for companies with multi-billion [or trillion] valuations).  But what the "big ones" do does rub off.
