How do I make a webpage the default in Chrome?

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.
 

Hi,

 

I’m running Wind 10 with Jaws 2019.

 

How can I make a certain web page my default upon opening Chrome?

 

No luck so far trying to freelance it.

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

The question also arises:  Where/How does it open it?

Depending on how you have your browser set up it might open up in the browser or the file can be handed off to whatever you have set as your system's default PDF viewer.  If the latter, you can use the Save As feature of the system PDF viewer (e.g., Adobe Acrobat DC).  If the former, there's generally a download control in the browser's PDF presenter, but I haven't played with getting to that control via screen reader.

I personally hate having PDFs opened inside a web browser and promptly change the browser settings to have it pass off any PDF files to open with my system PDF viewer.

Re: Saveing an pdf file

Nino, right click the link, arrow down to and press the enter key on the
save link as command. the standard save as dialog should open allowing
you to type a name for the file (or accept the default name) and change
the location to where you want to save it onto your HD.

depending on which browser you're using, the term (it might just say
save as instead of save link as) and manner in which it saves the PDF
changes slightly but the concept is similar. for example, pressing the
application key or shift+f10 instead of right clicking, bla bla bla.

also, some websites may not allow to save the PDF, in which case there
may be another way to save the PDF such as simply pressing control+s
after it has been opened.

Re: pasting multiple items into ms excel

Van Lant, Robin
 

If u want them in separate columns, then I agree with the use of Notepad .  You can also see if pressing F2 in the cell where you want to paste, then Control V will work  I used this is I am capturing a paragraph or list that I want in one Excel cell.

You could paste the items into Notepad, then manually put them one after another separated either by a comma or a tab, once finished select all, copy and now paste into Excel.

Hello,

For me job, I need to collect different parts of a website into the clipboard to paste in ms-excel 2010.

 

I use the jaws-script AppendTextToClipboard to collect the items into the clipboard but when I paste them in excel, the items are pasted each on a defferent row (below each other).

They should be pasted next to each other.

 

The transpose feature from ms excel is not solving the problem.

 

Any idea if I can force this with jaws, a jaws-script or anothe raccessible program on win10?

I have two thoughts and one bit of information.

The info is the .ly extension means the domain is registered in Libya.

Hello, I purchased Access 2016 on Ebay for $11. I was leary about purchasing Access on Ebay at such a low price. I did it anyway. I was then told the package was open and never used. Plus I would get a key to download the software. I would have thought I would get a link to Microsoft. I was given the site – https://bit.ly/2G7Lc0E. If it was never used how could end up on a different site than Microsoft? Any thoughts? Thanks, Kevin

 


Re: Purchased Access 2016 on Ebay

 

Hi Richard,

 

The fact that .Ly is for Lybia doesn't necessarily mean all that much in todays age of URL redirects and all that. I put "What is the www.bit.ly website" and received a lot of search results for the Bitly URL shortening service which uses bit.ly as their domain. Here is the Wikipedia article about Bitly, but I would say it's safe enough to use that link, what prompted me to Google it was the fact that it looked like a shortened URL.

Re: pasting multiple items into ms excel

William, to avoid too much tedium, but you could copy each bit of info
that goes into each cell at a time. I don't think there is a way to copy
all of the info you want and paste it in to Excel the way you want, side
by side in one shot, if I understand what you're wanting to do.

you might need to do some tidying up of what is pasted into the cell,
depending on how the info from the website is delineated.

Hi William,

I can’t guarantee that this will work 100%, but this is what I would
try. Say you want to paste your content in a1 through e1. Do this:

After you get the information on the clipboard go to excel and press
control + g which puts you into “go to” screen.

In my example I would type “a1:e1” without quotes and press enter.

Now paste from your clipboard and see what you get.

Re: Purchased Access 2016 on Ebay

 

As an aside, given that "recycled licenses" for Office 2016 Pro Plus routinely cost about the same as the $11 paid for Access 2016, they're a better bargain and you get the entire office suite, including Access, in the bargain.

I have updated six computers now using recycled licenses purchased from eBay and have had no trouble except with one license key, which the seller promptly replaced with another when I let them know it didn't work.

Re: Purchased Access 2016 on Ebay

 

The link leads to an AccessRetail.img file.  If what you purchased was a license key, you can still go to Microsoft's site to download the installer, and that's what I'd do anyway.  bit.ly is a competitor to tinyurl and other "URL shortener" services.

The Access page is:  https://products.office.com/en-us/access
I would presume the "Try Now" button would download the trial version which could be enabled by supplying a license key.

Do not be surprised if the key you received will not activate via the internet.  You may have to use phone activation, but even that's a misnomer in a way these days.  You're asked a couple of questions by a "bot" along with your mobile number (if you have one) and the confirmation code, which is ungodly long, which will allow you to complete activation is texted to you.

Re: Question About JAWS 2019 Reading Column and Row Titles for Tables in Microsoft Word 365

 

Milissa,

           Take a look at:  http://accessproject.colostate.edu/udl/modules/word/tut_table_headings.php

           If doing this with the header rows allows JAWS to announce things "more gracefully," you might also want to make whoever it is that's creating the original document(s) with tables in them aware of this material.  I recently had to figure out how one does this in Excel so that JAWS can easily announce what column you're dealing with for the row that you're in.

           I don't have JAWS installed on this machine to test with.

           There's also a raft of great information returned by this web search:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MS-Word+table+headings+accessibility 

            My gut tells me this is going to be solved by setting up the MS-Word document such that JAWS can handle tables gracefully moreso than actually tweaking JAWS settings, though there may be some of that.
