Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

I’m using windows10 and Jaws2018 or jaws 2019. I’m on a web site and it says to press jaws key plus alt plus r to get descriptive text. I do and nothing is read. It doesn’t matter what web site I do this on nothing is read. The site tells me to do those key strokes. Is there something else I need to do? Or is the HTML code not setup for a alt label to state something about a link? Thanks, Kevin

Jaws 2019 and photo copy

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

 

 

Using latest W10 64 bit Home  and latest Jaws 2019 Home

 

Does the latest Jaws have a builtin photo copier facility?

 

If so, how can it be accessed?

 

Thanks

 

Tom

As far as I know Spotify isn't very accessible with any screen reader
on desktop. I don't have any links for you at the moment, but you can
maybe try Google. Sorry I can't be more helpful. :(

It's been a while since I played with using laptop commands when the desktop layout was the chosen default, but when I did they worked without my needing to change over to laptop layout.  That was definitely in one of the high teens JAWS versions, before they went to the "year of release" nomenclature.

But when I used caps lock in desktop mode, it seemed that the insert key not longer acted as a JAWS key. I want both to be a JAWS key, since it's sometimes easier to hit one over the other for certain commands. That's why I ended up switching to the laptop layout.

Using Windows 7 and JAWS Version 2018, I installed WaterFox on one

So far, I have found one irritating thing, that is, When I press
CTRL+F, JAWS now says, "Search in page", followed by the word edit.

How can I apply the keystroke, INSERT+CTRL+F, which is the JAWS
search command to CTRL+F, instead.

So far, with the limited use I have had using this browser, I am

Re: Using Waterfox

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Dave,
 
Windows has the sticky key mode but, Jaws has Insert key mode and how to use it is explained below:
Insert Key Mode:
Try the following to turn the Insert Key Mode on / off.  This only works in
the Settings Center Default All Applications.
1. Open the Settings Center in either of these 2 ways.
A. Press, Insert / Jaws Key + 6, on the number row above the main keyboard.
B. Press, Insert / Jaws Key + F2, to open the, Jaws Manager, arrow down,
Settings Center, & press enter.
With the Settings Center open press, control, shift , + D, to open the
Settings Center Default All Applications.
2. Arrow down to, Users, right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, Insert Key Mode, to check or uncheck this box.  Here's the
explanation of this option:
When selected, the INSERT key functions as a sticky key. Any key pressed
immediately after pressing the INSERT key is treated as if it were pressed
in combination with the INSERT key. This check box is cleared by default.

Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I don't have a JAWS-related solution for you, but if you press escape when
using the ctrl-f find function, you will find your cursor in the right
position and the find dialog box will close. As was already said, pressing
f3 should get you to the next occurrence of the search.

Yeah, ctrl-f activates the browser's find function and not JAWS's, I
noticed that as well. That's actually ok I think as that's the way
browsers are meant to function. Is it that much of a pain for you to
use insert-ctrl-f instead? You already have to do this in for
examplea dobe reader...

That said I'm sure you could remap the keystroke somehow. I don't
think jAWS has separate keyboard/script files for waterfox, and
that's why the virtual find doesn't work the same. You could
probably create one if you watned to.

Subject: Using Waterfox

Hello everyone:

Using Windows 7 and JAWS Version 2018, I installed WaterFox on one
of my computers this morning.

So far, I have found one irritating thing, that is, When I press
CTRL+F, JAWS now says, "Search in page", followed by the word edit.

How can I apply the keystroke, INSERT+CTRL+F, which is the JAWS
search command to CTRL+F, instead.

So far, with the limited use I have had using this browser, I am
liking its speed and accessing the web pages I have visited.

Thank you in anticipation for any suggestions.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

contrrol f is the windows search function. it does go to the item. but you have to close the find dialog box before you know where you are on the page. if you want to continue the same search you press f3.

There is a "sticky key" function with Jaws that allows you to press insert, then another key using one hand.

does Waterfox still use the old extension API? I know a few people who've switched away from other FF forks when that API was security patched, but wasn't sure if Waterfox was one of them.

Yes, I know about all that and jumped through a few hoops just so I could Use FS quantum.

It might be a resource hog. It does not run that fast on my 3500 MHZ AMD machine with 8 gb of ram. It works well enough, though, for the most part, and I still use it more often than I do Chrome. I recently jumped aboard the Waterfox train, out of curiosity, and I have to admit it does run faster and looks exactly like Firefox.

A lot of people steered away from firefox when they switched over to the Quantum versions. Or kept with some older ESR version of firefox. Mostly because, and I hear rumors it may have improved slightly, Firefox Quantum is kind of a resource hog. Chrome is actually easier on a system than that, from what I hear. I can't say for sure because I'm on JAWS 18 and latest firefox hates that, but that's the word on the street anyway.

No, it wasn't at all, no need to apologise.

That's all quite interesting.
However I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the only developer perspective.
I know a few for example who stay away from Google for precisely the reason you mentioned. If they use Google products, they do so through services that hide their personal info.

I actually thought Firefox was the most popular browser among developers because of its open-source nature. Maybe that has changed in the last few years?

JM,
The vast majority of developers that I am in contact with see Chrome as the “only browser that matters“ and the browser that everyone should be using.

They came for the built-in development tools, they stayed for the convenience of having google store all of their information in one place (and they think that’s a feature).

I hear “Firefox is an edge-case” and “Firefox is disappearing“ so do we really need to make it work in Firefox?

Now that MS Edge is going to be running Chrome (Chromium) under the hood, there are even less browser options for us.

So, to people I care about, I encourage them to do this one small thing to help protect their personal information: make Firefox your default browser.

Google makes pretty good stuff, but it isn’t free; we pay by giving them our information.

Sorry, that was more than you asked for.

Take care,
Thomas

Richard,
Different browsers work better for different sites sometimes.

I highly recommend Firefox as a person’s default and then Chrome if one needs to fall back to another option.

I get grief from my developer friends, but my feeling is that Firefox is made for the benefit of people, Chrome is made for the benefit of Google.

Just some thoughts.

Take care,
Thomas

I am going to be receiving some in depth computer training in preparation for vocational training services. Since Internet Explorer is no longer secure, what 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: Is Adobe Photo premier accessible with Jaws?

JM Casey
 

I don't know about that particular programme. However there was a discussion
on another list recently about video editing software. Of course a totally
blind person will never be able to use all of the features of such a product
to their best advantage, but there's no reason why some of the functions
can't be accessible.

Goldwave is an audio editor. It can extract audio from some video file
containers, but it will not work with video content at all.

Re: Keyboard Malfunction

Subject: Keyboard Malfunction

 

Hi –

I have a totally perplexing problem with my Acer Aspire netbook. The keyboard is malfunctioning. For example, the keys down the left side of the keyboard (Escape, tilde, Tab, Caps-lock) all say “Escape” when pressed. Keys d, f, c say “5.” Keys k, l, I say “dash.” Arrow up says “F10,” and other arrow keys say “Home.” I assume that I inadvertently clicked some option while exploring settings, but I have no idea what or where that option might be. The touch pad allows my sighted wife to navigate the computer, but her tech skills are very limited. Anybody have a suggestion for returning standard keyboard functionality? Do I need to start in safe mode to get where I need to go to make a change? I hope to avoid having to take the dated netbook to a repair shop, given the typical cost of a repair call and the market value of the netbook.

I will be delighted to take conversation about this problem off the list if you have info to share and don’t want to clutter more Jaws-specific list space.

Many thanks – Ed Culpepper
