Re: waterfox with jaws

but alt b then all bookmarks does not show all the bookmarks and there is no bookmark search option. which i use all the time.
only control i or control b will open all of the bookmarks and cand be searched.
but as i said if i don't turn off the virtual cursor first every thing hangs
its funny though. the bookmark list did not hang when i first ran waterfox portible when there was no bookmarks imported to it. after that it hung.the same as firefox does.

If you use alt-b to access bookmarks, you will not have a hanging issue.

the problem is if i switch to another screen reader (n v d a) when waterfox is running then go back to jaws it looks like the virtual pc cursor is not working. it will still say it is on or off but this has mo effect until i reload waterfox. then jaws will start working again.
also just like firefox the bookmark list will hang wheni open the bookmark list for about 20 seconds.
i have to turn off the virtual pc cursor before i open it. then it will not hang.

Hi Net bat,

I'm running the installed version of Waterfox, Windows 7 Pro with Jaws 16.
When you start Water fox press, Alt + T, then, O, to open options. Now tab to either, Options or Options Document, and down arrow to List Box. Press enter on, List Box, now you can down arrow to the various tabs in Tools / Options and you can tab through the settings for each tab.

You can also open Waterfox and turn the virtual cursor off with, Insert + Z, press, Alt + t, then, O, to open option. Now, tab 1 time to the list of Options / tabs, arrow up / down through the list of Options tabs and tab through the options tabs to change settings.

Take Care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

i am trying the portible version and few of the jaws options work as is.
with the virtual pc cursor onedit boxes, headings read to end etc. don’t work with jaws as is.
and why are all the help options going to the firefox web page?



Hi Liz!

The best browser to use with JAWS, for me, has been a browser called:

Waterfox.

It was developed in 2012, and it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons better.

It can use all of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.

JAWS never messes up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure.
A new update just came out.

Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old Firefox.

It has a spell check built in and everything.

It has a reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read the article.

The reading mode is built in.

You just press:

Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.

With JAWS, I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.

You can just do a Google search for Waterfox.

What I like as well, is the ability to download a portable version of Waterfox.

I love running a portable version, that I keep on the computer, because you do not have to install it on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version on the computer, you can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can with installed programs.

I hope this helps.

Take care, Liz.

Re: I am having a problem exiting Dropbox

 

Here is what I do, I am telling you what I press and include what Jaws said from speech history:

Press Jaws Key + F11 to bring up the system tray and arrow to Dropbox:
Dropbox 66.4.84 up to date, 5 of 14
Press enter and you should hear:
tray-window - press enter again on that and you hear:
Context Menu
Open Dropbox folder - I now down arrow through all the options:
Launch Dropbox website
Launch Dropbox Paper
Recently changed files sub menu
48.7% of 11.2GB used Unavailable
Get more space
Up to date Unavailable
Pause syncing
Snooze notifications sub menu
Preferences...
Help center
Exit
I suggest you definitely don't try to move the Dropbox folder because I doubt Dropbox would then work, you need to go into Preferences and tell Dropbox where you want the folder to be. So, arrow to Preferences and press enter.
Now use Control + Tab to find the "Sync" tab:
Dropbox Preferences
Account Tab
Import Tab
Bandwidth Tab
Proxies Tab
Notifications Tab
Sync Tab - press tab now, the first couple of times you won't hear anything, then you hear the following:
OK Enter Button - continue to press tab
Cancel Enter Button
Apply Enter Button
Selective Sync... Enter Select which folders sync to this computer: Select which folders you want to see on this computer. Any folders you unselect won't be shown on this computer, but you can still access them on dropbox.com.
Move... Enter Dropbox folder location Choose where your Dropbox is located on your computer. All your Dropbox files will be saved in this folder.
Press enter on that and you should be able to specify the new location.

Regards,
Sieghard

You don't have to use anything you don't want to. I was a little skeptical about Waterfox myself, not being certain if it really was receiving proper updates for security and bugfixes as often as a major project like Firefox. It seems to be on the level, though, and so far it's working pretty damn well. It's not really just for you to call something a worthless piece of junk when you spent, what, all of five minutes with it?

Re: I am having a problem exiting Dropbox

 

Yes, definitely not, you would have to go to Dropbox Preferences via the system tray to specify a new location for the Dropbox folder.
This would be under the Sync tab like this:
Move... Enter Dropbox folder location Choose where your Dropbox is located on your computer. All your Dropbox files will be saved in this folder.

No, I was wrong on that.  Keep tabbing until after a button that says make default.  The next set of radio buttons will do what you want.  Select open a page or set of pages, press spacebar and then tab to get to the options for what you want done there.

Re: some basic chrome naviagation questions

It is buried in settings.  Press alt, arrow down to settings, hit enter, start tabbing.  Tab until you here show home button, one tab after that is a set of radio buttons for where chrome starts. You can enter an address there, at least that's my best guess.  I prefer no page so I choose the new tab page button.

I'm not sure actually. I only saw a 64-bit version. If it doesn't work,
you'll know when you try to install it; you'll get an error and it will
exit, most likely.

Does Waterfox work with 32 bit. That's what my computer is. I've
downloaded it but don't want to install unless this is the case.

You don't have to use anything you don't want to. I was a little skeptical
about Waterfox myself, not being certain if it really was receiving proper
updates for security and bugfixes as often as a major project like Firefox.
It seems to be on the level, though, and so far it's working pretty damn
well. It's not really just for you to call something a worthless piece of
junk when you spent, what, all of five minutes with it?

I downloaded the portable version of Waterfox, but when I ranit, the
interface contained a list of items which made no sense. There was nothing
resembling a home page with a search edit field. So I chucked it into the
Recycle bin. This worthless piece of junk isn't remotely similar to
Firefox. No wonder hardly anyone uses it.

Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

That might be unavoidable. I have had similar experiences with other programmes. I guess, try not to change screen-readers during a single browsing session. It seems like waterfox (and I believe firefox does this too) runs some kind of detection routine at startup to see if you have a screen-reader running. I don't know what exactly happens when this routine executes, but re-starting (either the browser or screen-reader) does seem to have an effect.

Hi!

I am using it well on my 64 bit Windows 10 machine.

I wish I knew why it is not working for you.

Are you pressing enter on the .EXE Waterfox file?

It takes a minute for the browser to come up.

If you press Alt+T and go to options, you can change your settings.

Remember, it does take a minute or more to come up, and for the first time, it
will not show a home page.

You have to type in the URL for your home pages in the Settings.

Take care!

Well, I tried the portable version of Waterfox, and it is completely unusable

on my 32 bit Windows 7 desktop. But at least it was easy to get rid of. I

just chucked it into the recycle bin.

Hi!



The advantages that I like with a portable version of a program, is that it

does not leave residue on your computer that is not part of the program.



For example, browsers leave cookies on your computer, which are tiny apps that

make web sites work better. Also, when you install a program, remnants of the

program are scattered around in folders that you do not think about.



Installing a program puts it right on your hard drive, and it leaves a

footprint on your computer.



With the portable program, all bookmarks, browsing history, search history, and

all of that, is saved right in the unzipped portable folder.



You know that everything that browser does, is right in the unzipped folder

instead of on your computer somewhere, on the hard drive.



Also, you can put a portable program on a external storage drive, and just

press enter on the .exe file on that storage device to launch the program.



I keep an SD card on my computer, and I put the portable programs on the SD

card, and even put shortcuts on the desktop, because I leave the SD card in the

computer.



That way, you are not taking up space on your hard drive’s storage at all.



I use this little computer with a 28 Gig SSD drive, so space is a minimum on

this little gym.



You can also put the portable program on a USB pin drive, and carry it to where

ever you go, and you can launch it on any computer anywhere.



That is the biggest reason why I like portable programs. That is why NVDA is so

awesome, because you can put it on a pin drive, and take it where ever you go,

and use NVDA on any computer.



That is the power of portable programs.



Have a great one, and please ask any questions.

Hi Liz!



The best browser to use with JAWS, for me, has been a browser called:



Waterfox.



It was developed in 2012, and it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons

better.



It can use all of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.



JAWS never messes up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure.

A new update just came out.



Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old Firefox.



It has a spell check built in and everything.



It has a reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read the

article.



The reading mode is built in.



You just press:



Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.



With JAWS, I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.



You can just do a Google search for Waterfox.



What I like as well, is the ability to download a portable version of Waterfox.



I love running a portable version, that I keep on the computer, because you do

not have to install it on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version

on the computer, you can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can

with installed programs.



I hope this helps.



Take care, Liz.

is the best browser out there that is JAWS friendly? I have used fire fox in

the past, but as of late I have heard mixed views about fire fox.

Re: waterfox with jaws

JM Casey
 

I've only been using it for a few hours, but it seems virtually identical to Firefox to me.

You don't have to use anything you don't want to. I was a little skeptical about Waterfox myself, not being certain if it really was receiving proper updates for security and bugfixes as often as a major project like Firefox. It seems to be on the level, though, and so far it's working pretty damn well. It's not really just for you to call something a worthless piece of junk when you spent, what, all of five minutes with it?

I downloaded the portable version of Waterfox, but when I ranit, the interface contained a list of items which made no sense. There was nothing resembling a home page with a search edit field. So I chucked it into the Recycle bin. This worthless piece of junk isn't remotely similar to Firefox. No wonder hardly anyone uses it.

Hi Net bat,

I'm running the installed version of Waterfox, Windows 7 Pro with Jaws
16. When you start Water fox press, Alt + T, then, O, to open options.
Now tab to either, Options or Options Document, and down arrow to List
Box. Press enter on, List Box, now you can down arrow to the various
tabs in Tools / Options and you can tab through the settings for each
tab.

You can also open Waterfox and turn the virtual cursor off with,
Insert + Z, press, Alt + t, then, O, to open option. Now, tab 1 time
to the list of Options / tabs, arrow up / down through the list of
Options tabs and tab through the options tabs to change settings.

Take Care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: some basic chrome naviagation questions

Chris Hill
 

Ctrl-t is the command you want for new tab.  It may or may not say anything.  alt-f b will get you to bookmarks as fast as you can in chrome.


Good luck.

The Dropbox folder cannot be moved in the way you suggest. I have tried your

According to information I have read on the web, the dropbox folder can only
