Which browser are you using.  You’ve probably already said this.  With Chrome, I just clicked the link and the file itself was downloaded, so if you’re using Chrome, there’s a setting needing changing.

The problem is, Brian, that when I click the link, it doesn’t directly download. It automatically opens Adobe Reader DC, and puts the file into that app without first saving it in my downloads or documents folder.

Bill,

           That's because that link is a fully automated download link.  The end user needs do nothing more than click on it to have the PDF file that is ahead of the final '/download' part of that link download to their machine simply by activating it.

            I supply this sort of link all the time, e.g., Adding Desktop Shortcuts Under Windows 10.  If you look at the actual URL for this it contains the word "download" in the URL and that's generally (almost universally, actually) an indication that activating said link will trigger a direct download.  In some cases you'll get a Save As dialog if your web browser is set to ask you where you want to put any file you download and in others it will go directly to Downloads or whatever folder you've specified as your download location if set to do that.

             The person who set up the sourceforge page, https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxcommand/, which is the root page on which the download link you gave and several others are found, really did not know how to create a well-designed page where links that trigger downloads would have used click through text to indicate that's what would happen.  The link you provided, if following good practice, would be listed on the page as, Download TLCL-17.10.pdf, or something very similar, just like I did in the middle of this sentence.

Re: Saving an pdf file

 

By the way, even if a PDF file is opened within the browser, it must be downloaded to the local machine itself into a temp folder somewhere before that happens.  That's why you can then save it elsewhere if you so choose.  But things that get thrown into these locations are constantly being deleted as other stuff needs the space.

Even the file that opens for you in Adobe Reader DC can be saved out of Adobe Reader DC if you want a copy.

Re: Saving an pdf file

 

Bill, 

         I assure you, it is directly downloading it, but into a temp folder somewhere.  The file cannot possibly open in Adobe Reader DC until and unless it is resident somewhere on your system's hard disk drive (or SSD equivalent). The behavior you describe is entirely characteristic when you have tweaked your web browser to open PDF files using the system viewer, as that will override what would be "the usual procedure" when a PDF target is detected.  That target will be downloaded to a system TEMP folder somewhere and then promptly opened with the system PDF viewer, which must be Adobe Reader DC in this case.

         There may even be a browser that would allow you to set specific file types to be opened by specific other programs that are NOT the ones chosen as the defaults under Windows 10, but I don't personally have any experience with any that do.

          With the very rarest of exceptions, as corruptions can come into existence, these sorts of behaviors are the result of the interaction between settings that the end user, or someone who is/was their agent, set themselves.

Re: Saving an pdf file

 

Bill,

         I should also have mentioned that most "non-automatic download" links for files will have the actual file name as the last part of the URL.  Google Drive, where I store stuff like the step-by-step instruction sets I frequently post, doesn't.

Re: Pontes Media Downloader and JAWS

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

There is no option for changing the conversion from 128KBPS to 320KBPS in Pontes Media Downloader. This is because, when you get a file from Youtube, the fidelity isn’t higher than 128KBPS at the start, so changing the bitrate wouldn’t improve the fidelity.

Hi, Brian. Below is the link to the Linux book. It is a pdf file, and if you click the link, it opens the pdf. If I just press ENTER on the link, it opens in Adobe Reader DC. If I try to do a Save Target As, it wants to save the resulting file as an html. Below is the link.

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.

Pretty much every time a program hangs, Jaws goes silent I think because it is hung waiting for a response from the software.
Sometimes, I can launch NVDA and that gets Jaws talking, or allows me to then close the hung program and sometimes then close and restart Jaws.

web-applicaties and markers with jaws 2018

William Windels
 

hello all,

I discover some strange problems with jaws-marckers in the last versions of mozilla firefox and google chrome.

when jumping with letter "k" to the available marckers on the current page, some are reached correctly as difined while others are not reached with the letter "k"""
both groups of markers (reachable or unreachable) can be used when opening the marckers-menu with ctrl shift k, then select the specific marcker and i chose goto.

all marckers are setup with the checkbox for the whole domain and are linked to text.
the checkbox for the whole domain is set because the web-application is a kind of ticket-manager for helpdesc-tickets.
the webapplications are itrp/4me and jira.
questions:
1: what could be the reason some markers can't be aactivated with "k" and some not?
2: what can i do/test to determine the problem?
3: if possible, is there a fix to add/adjust marckers so that this should also work with letter "k"?

many thx for any info/help.

No. You cannot add quality to an MP3 file by increasing the bit resolution. You can make it worse, but not better.

Which means, without question, that the link itself is to a PDF file.  By the way, this behavior is entirely normal, as most browsers support a PDF viewer.  I already mentioned earlier that if you don't want the browser to handle opening PDF files you can instruct it not to do so and to pass those links off to the system PDF viewer.  That's what I do, as I really don't like dealing with PDF files inside a browser PDF viewer.  I like my system viewer better.

As someone else pointed out, there can be peculiarities induced by screen readers using a virtual cursor/buffer, and I've seen that, too.  You have to figure out if that's happening for specific websites and find the way to throw focus exactly where you need it so that you can do the "Save link target as" and save yourself a lot of unnecessary steps.
