Surface Go

denise avant <denise.avant@...>
 

Hello all,

I am considering purchasing the new Surface Go for traveling. I would want to use it with the full Windows version, and run JAWS with the MS Suite of products. Has anyone used this tablet/computer with JAWS in the full Windows mode. Are there any other types of Windows devices that are the equivalent of the Surface Go that JAWS would comfortably run on.

I am also looking at a Surface Book in the alternative. It has been suggested that the Lenovo Yoga book might be a good option or one by HP.

I just want to know what peoples’ experience has been. Thank you.

Bill,  You and others on this group site helped me solv this same problem just last week.  I do thank you for that.  I had to unplug my computer from my router after I reinstalled Firefox 52, so it couldn’t automatically update itself to version 60.  I then uninstalled the Mozilla maintainance, turned off automatic updates and went into the mozilla folder on C/Program Files and deleted the 2 Update files.  After plugging my computer back into my router, everything works fine now except that every time I open Firefox now I get a pop up message that Firefox has found an update and I should install it.  I just close it and go on.
 
Love in Christ

Hi, Marilyn. The problem is that whichever version of Firefox you had previously, it updated automatically, and, because you don’t have JAWS 2018, Firefox 62.0 will not work with your version of JAWS.

 

The only thing to do is to download an earlier version of Firefox and, after installing it, make sure you disable automatic updating of Firefox. This takes a few steps to make sure it doesn’t update.

 

If you are interested, Write back. I’ll have you call me, and I’ll also walk you through the process of disabling any future updates.

Hello all,

 

Yesterday I had no problems with opening a link in the body of certain emails, but now I’m getting a prompt that says the link cannot open and I should do the following: “Firefox extended support release.”

 

What does this mean? How would I go about doing this?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you so much.

Re: Firefox extended support release

Fair enough. But when you have browsers becoming unsupported and going further “out-of-date”, often various elements of the web simply no longer work right. We’re seeing this already with Internet Explorer, even though technically it *is* still supported by Microsoft. There are also security holes in the browsers themselves that, once discovered, literally need to be patched even though they never bothered anybody until said discovery. I know Mozilla was just alerted to one they deemed “critical” just the other week. I know everyone can be a bit alarmist about computer security at times, and I know updates can be a pain, but I think the web browser is one piece of software I would like to keep current, and would especially advise those who might not be quite as savvy as others that they should probably do this.

 

I totally understand not wanting to pay for JAWS updates. It is unfortunate that FS didn’t backport Firefox Quantum support to at least JAWS 18, since they did so with Edge support. But there are alternatives. NVDA for instance works great with Firefox today. I did pay for a JAWS upgrade and I’m still not happy with JAWS Firefox support, as there’s a bug that causes it to keep crashing on at least some of our machines.

Well, I did this for a number of years. I use Eset NOD32 as my antivirus, and I turned off all the threat measures in Firefox. I don’t need multilayers of protection, as long as my antivirus and firewall are working and up-to-date.

 

If I were going to help someone do this, I would give them caveats, but many people don’t want to pay for another version of JAWS, and may want to stay with their same browser.

Hey Bill.

 

You seem to know what you’re talking about in this group and so I don’t want to come off as overly critical….

But are you sure helping people to do this is really a worthy cause? At least, without some important caveats?

Mozilla themselves do not recommend doing this. Version 52 won’t even be receiving security updates anymore. I suppose it’s all right, so long as people understand that it should be only a temporary measure til they get around to switching to a different course.

Re: Firefox extended support release

Firefox is your default web browser it sounds like. You didn’t say, but it sounds like  you are using an old(er) version of JAWS. This won’t work with any of the new Firefox versions, including the extended support release as of a week or two ago. You’ll have to either upgrade JAWS, use a different screen-reader, or use a different browser.

 

I like Firefox a lot and want to continue using it, but at present there is a bug in JAWS 2018 that causes it to hang fairly often. Apparently this may be fixed soon.

It's been a while since I've used the e-mail interface, but I don't recall my own messages ever coming back to me if/when they were the first message in a new topic.  If you titled these such that they were one, that may be the problem.

I did see one of these, for certain, that included direct links to two pages with registry edit files related to context menus.  But I see them on the web interface and everything appears there.

You can also open your taskbar programs by pressing the Windows Key+# where number is a number from 1 to 9 on the number row.

If, for example, you have the following programs on your taskbar in this order:

1 Google Chrome 2 Outlook 3 Excel 4 Word 5 Skype 6 Notepad

Then pressing Windows Key+1 will open Chrome, Windows Key+4 will open Word, Windows Key+6 opens Notepad etc.

If you press Windows Key+Alt+4, as an example, it will open the jumplist for Word

Pressing Windows Key+Shift+6,as another example, will open anew instance of Notepad if Notepad is already open.

I, too, pin to the Task bar in Windows 10.  I used to create shortcuts to desktop icons, but my work laptop requires admin rights to do this now.  I’ve also found recently that shortcuts don’t work as consistently as they did before, unless my focus is on the desktop.  Pressing Windows T for the Task Bar then the first letter of the program I want has become second-nature in recent months.

My view is, just because something can be done in Windows, it isn’t necessarily beneficial to do that thing.  I haven’t seen any advantages to pinning items to the start menu. For screen reader users, I am a big fan of pinning things to the task bar under certain conditions, and of using the desktop to launch programs.  These are more efficient ways. 

 

Any contrary viewpoints?

Hi, Jonas. What I do to get to the pinned items in Start menu is this:

 

1. Press Windows key.

2. TAB once.

3. Left and Right Arrow.

4. You will see some headings:

 

Life At a Glance

 

Play and explore

 

Control panel

 

5. Arrow up and down under these headings, and you will see the items you have pinned to the Start Menu.

So in win10 if you go to all apps, and arrow down to any app, open your context menu you have an option to pin to start!

Any hotkeys or how can I bring Jaws focus to the pin apps in my start menu?

Re: Context menu tips/tricks

Hello, Dr. Arvind. I have sent you a message with links to add and remove shutdown in context menu. However, I now believe that possibly the links I sent might have been viewed by groups.io as being unsafe, and thus were not sent. I am sending two new links below, one to add shutdown to context menu, the other to remove shutdown from context menu.

 

Add shutdown

Re: If I pin a program to start, how can I get to it using Jaws?

 

You can also open your taskbar programs by pressing the Windows Key+# where number is a number from 1 to 9 on the number row.

If, for example, you have the following programs on your taskbar in this order:

1 Google Chrome 2 Outlook 3 Excel 4 Word 5 Skype 6 Notepad

Then pressing Windows Key+1 will open Chrome, Windows Key+4 will open Word, Windows Key+6 opens Notepad etc.

If you press Windows Key+Alt+4, as an example, it will open the jumplist for Word

Pressing Windows Key+Shift+6,as another example, will open anew instance of Notepad if Notepad is already open.

PMD is Pontes Media Downloader and you do not need it for Crome. PMD is a program for downloading audio from You Tube and other web sites that host media files.

Hi all.
Again, I have done as recommended,and copied the URL to clipboard.
The URL is below.
I tried this in PMD and it says it is an invalid URL. I then copied the
URL and tried it in the W/Run dialog and it works just fine...HMM
Before I start PMD, i click applications and run as administrator, just
to be sure on that end.
Maybe I should Unload and reload PMD and see what happens.
Any other thoughts helpful.
