Re: Saving an pdf file

 

Tom, try again, and carefully read the options.  It's not save link, but save link target or similar.  I don't know what browser you're using so I can't give you the precise phrasing.  Every single web browser supports direct saving of the file that is a link target.

sTried your suggestion. Focused on the PDF download link and hit enter on the save link. It downloaded the Web page.  Tom

Tom,

          If your goal is to have a copy of the PDF file saved to your computer, the easiest thing to do is, once you have focus on the link for said file, to hit the applications/menu key or SHIFT+F10 and choose the option usually something like, "Save link as," or, "Save target as," which directly downloads the file without opening it.  You can then open it afterward with the reader of your choice.

It wasn’t checked but it is now. I restarted the computer but it still doesn’t show in add on’s. It does however start with the accessibility routine when I download a PDF document on a Web page but it won’t let me save the document. Generally what I do is highlight the document and copy it to the clip board and paste it into note pad. , however some manuals are too large to do this.  Tom

Hi, Tom. Make sure Adobe Reader DC is your default program to open pdf files. This can be done by searching for the word default in the start menu.

Subject: [jaws-users] Update on the JAWS 2019 December Update release schedule

 

Greetings List,

 

As many of you may have heard on the FS Cast last week, our goal was to release a JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2019 December update this week. During our testing process there were a few last minute issues discovered by internal testing and the Private Beta Team which forced us to stop the release cycle and go back to address the issues. That work is completed now, and we are now starting the release testing cycle again. Generally, it takes us a few days to verify everything is cleared and at that point, we should be ready to post. Early next week is the new target for the December updates at this point.

 

Sorry for the delay, but I’m pleased our process caught the issues, and we avoided introducing anything unexpected with our users.

 

Thanks for understanding and please let people know we’ll be posting soon.

 

I’ll have more up to date info for those of you able to join us on FS OpenLine this week. Tune in on Thursday evening at 8 PM Eastern. For details on FS OpenLine and the instructions for joining us with Zoom, please visit: http://blog.freedomscientific.com/fsopenline/

Telling Internet Explorer How To Open PDF Files

 

See this article from Adobe:  https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-in-browser.html

It contains the information necessary for you to either set IE to open PDFs within the browser or to force the use of whatever system PDF reader/viewer you prefer.  Although the information presumes Adobe Reader the principles apply regardless of your reader of choice.

Re: Braille display and jaws problem

Panagiotis Antonopoulos
 

Hi Ari/all,
Well, I have had an ordeal when I bought my new Lenovo, excellent otherwise. I had latest jaws at the time, and an Active Braille from the German company Handytech. Despite my computer tech's struggling, it would not connect with either Bluetooth, or usb. It made several trips between Ioannina, my place of work, and Athens, some 300 miles, and when we thought things were fixed, it was the same, once it reached my end. Eventually, both display and computer were sent to handytech, again with no success, although the Germans were insisting it was Jaws' fault. To cut a long story, my computer tech, eventually discovered that the fault lay with Narrator, and one of its drivers, and it was really a Microsoft fault, which affects some, but not all, displays. Once narrator was removed, I have had not more that problem.
Hope this helps,
Greetings from Greece (perhaps your family's country of origin?),
Takis

Hi everyone
I hope someone can give me some answers or additional tips on what to
try, since I tried asking on the Facebook group, but no luck yet.
I have used a Seika 40 (Perkins in the US) and U2 in the past
successfully with jaws, but for some reason I can't get the newest
version of jaws to communicate with them at all. In fact I can't get
the newest version of JAWS to communicate with any braille display.
When I say communicate, I mean that I am connecting the displays
properly to the PC. I have tried Bluetooth and USB. The displays are
displaying braille and are working with NVDA.
I add them in JAWS. When I try their Bluetooth ports, I am inputting
the com numbers the computer is giving me. When I try the USB, the
drivers are installed correctly, I write USB.
Nothing is happening when I restart JAWS or the PC and JAWS.
I am not getting an error message, but no braille is being displayed either.
I have unpaired them from the PC and paried them again. I have tried
their supposed input and output ports just to make really sure. I have
tried the USB, nothing.
I really have no idea what else to try?
Is it just me or does anyone else believe that the whole interface of
configuring JAWS and a braille display lacks the ease of the iPhone,
or even NVDA? And when you write to support of iether the screenreader
or the braille display manufacturer, the one manufacturer thinks it
could be the other product and the support departments shift the
problem to each other like tennis.
Freedom Scientific should totally redesign the whole braille display
module or interface of jaws, or something should be done to find some
sort of solution to the whole three-way problem of hardware, software
and operating system triangulate in some sort of easier solution.
Thanks very much
Ari


Re: Braille display and jaws problem

Kimber Gardner
 

Not trying to be snarky here, but if the displays are working fine
with NVDA that tells me the problem isn't the computer or the display
but jaws itself. What does FS have to say about it?

their supposed input and output ports just to make really sure. I have
tried the USB, nothing.
I really have no idea what else to try?
Is it just me or does anyone else believe that the whole interface of
configuring JAWS and a braille display lacks the ease of the iPhone,
or even NVDA? And when you write to support of iether the screenreader
or the braille display manufacturer, the one manufacturer thinks it
could be the other product and the support departments shift the
problem to each other like tennis.
Freedom Scientific should totally redesign the whole braille display
module or interface of jaws, or something should be done to find some
sort of solution to the whole three-way problem of hardware, software
and operating system triangulate in some sort of easier solution.
Thanks very much

Announcing Tabs On A Line

munawarb@...
 

In NVDA, you are able to set an option that will tell you how many tabs a line is indented by. Is there such a feature in JAWS?


I've checked out Speech and Sound Schemes but when I use the Visual Studio (Indent) scheme in Visual Studio, I don't hear tab indications. My code uses standard tabbing where each indent is one tab (not two, 4 or 8 spaces as presented in Speech and Sound Schemes.) I see the speech and sound option for one tab is 0.125 inches. Isn't this a "dangerous" implementation since it's based on a hard-coded tab width (which of course doesn't work in VS?)


It cant' be that a screen reader like this doesn't offer the ability to announce tabs, so can someone help me out here? How do I turn on tab announcements? I've recently switched back to JAWS after a few years away from it now that the pricing is more friendly and love what I'm seeing except for this one problem.

What program does the PDF open in? If it is Acrobat Reader you can just press Control+Shift+S for Save As.

Brent, paste the bit.ly address into any browser's address bar and
append a plus sign to the end, and press enter. the resulting page will
show you the revealed long address it belongs to.

Bit.ly is just an address shortener that anyone can use, doesn't mean
the content at the address given is necessarily from another country or
bad in nature, but definitely one of those things to proceed with
caution. It would be nice if there was a way to see where that link goes
without getting infected with something nasty, but it might be a
shortened link to a real long one at Microsoft that they thought
wouldn't come through the email properly.

On this kind of topic, I've seen ads on Facebook for extremely cheap Office 365, possibly claiming to be lifetime on sites like Digital Upgrade Studio. I'm kind of skeptical that these are bad in some way, but they keep popping up now and again on FB, the same outfit. I think the $11 deals on Ebay can be mostly legit in people wanting to get rid of stuff they no longer use, but there's very little lifetime anything when it comes to services.

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.
