Re: file path to Chrome bookmarks?

Chris Hill
 

Bookmarks in chrome appeared to be stored in a file that only makes sense to chrome.  This is typical with most browsers these days.

setting voices for outlook

Mario
 

someone I know who is using JAWS 18 with Outlook 2016 wants to have a
female voice when reading an email and a male voice when composing a new
or replying/forwarding an email.

the male voice can be the same as the default voice.

how can this be done? I'm going to be helping him since he is not savvy
to do this himself. but I need help to tell him the steps needed to do this.

it also sounds like the theme is not classic or may be set to classic
but has been mucked up with different voices by someone else trying to
straighten his mess out.
how do I check and/or reset his speech theme?

Re: waterfox with jaws

Gerald Levy
 


Well,Waterfox portable does not work at all on my 32 bit Windows 7 desktop.  When I open it, I get an interface with the following items: app, beta, other, help and waterfox 56.exe.  But when I click on the last item, it just lists these same five items again. There is no home page or anything resembling a search edit field.   Obviously, something is really screwed up.

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?

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

You can also open Waterfox and turn the virtual cursor off with,

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

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.

Dave, windows+B to get to the list of programs, enter on Dopbox and up or down arrow until you get to preferences. You want to go to the last tab here. It may say selective sync. In that tab you will find a move button. This is the only way you should be moving dropbox folders.

Re: waterfox with jaws

netbat66
 

it runs exactly like firefox once you reboot it the first time.
i also find that web pages load allot faster. so far jaws speech has not randomly paused for 10 seconds all the time like firefox 65 does.
**
you have to reboot waterfox after it has been loaded because it detects your screen reader first and tells you accessibility is parcialy disabled. i forget what the buttons are like reboot. once you do this it will open with the waterfox home screen. which you can change in the tools/options menu.
then it will run the same as firefox.

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.

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

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.

If I hit alt-b, the first option is "show all bookmarks", and it also lists the keyboard command of ctrl-shift-b, which would be a faster way of getting to the same screen. This opens the library window, which I can then search. It's also possible to remove bookmarks from here.

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.

Re: waterfox with jaws

 

Dennis,

 

All I did was to open Google and then I searched for “Download Waterfox”

The first search result was what I wanted and I pressed enter on it

After the website opened I went to the top and used Jaws search, Control + Jaws Key + F to search for the word Download

The first item it found was a link which said “Download Waterfox”

After that I got my Safe AS dialogue where it wanted to download Waterfox 56.something setup.

It took me about 30 seconds although I didn’t download it in the end because I use Chrome which works extremely well for me and since I was never a big fan of Firefox I doubt I would find Waterfox to be better then Chrome.

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

 

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.

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.

I am going to be receiving some in depth computer training in

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

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.

Sieghard

Hello everyone:

I would like to move the dropbox folder from drive C to Drive f on my
system.

However, when I open the Task Tray and highlight the Dropbox icon and press
ENTER, to open the Dropbox item, then press the SPACEBAR, to open the "GEAR"

menue item, I cannot find the "Exit" button to close Dropbox, so I can then
move the Dropbox folder to the new location.

I am running Windows 7 Professional and I am using JFW 2018.

Any suggestions will be very helpful.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

I see.

 

I think I had to click a button that said “extra install options” or something like that. Then I could grab the 64-bit desktop version; the setup file downloaded right away.

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.

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.

Re: some basic chrome naviagation questions

Chris Hill
 

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

Chris Hill
 

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.
