Re: [Bulk] Right-clicking by Jaws in a web broser

Dave...
 

When this happens it means that the virtual cursor is not actually on the
correct object. Simply make sure to use the Tab key to land on the object,
and then use the Right Mouse Button.

I often find the same situation.
I then turn on the jaws cursor and try to find the link I want and then
right click to bring up the options I want.
Yes it is tedious but its the only solution I have found.

Subject: Right-clicking by Jaws in a web broser

Hi all,

Whenever I press the application key within a webpage, what I face is
usually a list of irrelevant options. It seems that the options presented to
me are applicable to another object in the webpage. I think it's a mismatch
between where the virtual PC cursor is located, and where the application
key is affecting. Is it a common problem among the Jaws users? If yes, is
there any fix?

Thanks,

Hamid

Re: When to install updates

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hello there;
Well, you can check out the update list before you hit the install button.
For example,
If your using windows 7,
And you see, an windows update alert in the system tray.

Here's what I do,

Go to desktop,
Now since I have a computer icon on the desktop,
I highlight the icon, bring up properties,

Now, I shift+tab until I see/hear,
Something like,
3 updates are available link,
I enter here,
So now I can see what updates are there.

You just want to be careful with, video and sound drivers, this could cause
some issues.
In windows xp, I use to choose,
Custom instead of automatic, again this allows me to see what the updates
are.
Hope this helps some.

Hi everyone

On some websites (unfortunately in Danish), I'm out that JAWS say
"application mode on", when I move focus from the website and back again.
After that I can do nothing with JAWS on this website.
Does any know of some websites on English, where JAWS also say "application

I have tried with Internet Explorer 8 and JAWS 11 and 13.

Very thanks.

Hi
Up to now I've been using adobe reader to read all my pdf documents
weather it's saved ebooks on my pc or pdf docs straight from the
internet. My big frustration is the pdf's opening in internet explorer
when clicking a link on the web, this sometimes works out but other
times I can't read the document at all, I just can't get it focused or
something. Does anyone have an idea of a setting or something to make
pdf's open in adobe reader by default and not in internet explorer? Or
alternativly do you know of any other pdf reader I can use?

Re: Laptops and external number pads

My numpad also won't speak the JAWS function for the 5 key. I haven't found
a solution. I suppose you could go around to your local Radio Shack and try
different numpads in case one does work correctly. Or maybe someone on the
list has an external numpad that performs all JAWS functions and can post
the model information.

letters phonetically but when I pressed the number five key twice it didn't
work. In fact nothing works when it comes to the number five key. If I press
it once JAWS won't read the letter the cursor is on. I have access to a full
size keyboard that I can plug in and do all this with, so I know it works
just like it's suppose too. But do to space constraints using this keyboard
with my laptop on a daily bases isn't practical.

Windows 7, 32 bit.

JAWS 13 / 12.

Hi
Up to now I've been using adobe reader to read all my pdf documents
weather it's saved ebooks on my pc or pdf docs straight from the
internet. My big frustration is the pdf's opening in internet explorer
when clicking a link on the web, this sometimes works out but other
times I can't read the document at all, I just can't get it focused or
something. Does anyone have an idea of a setting or something to make
pdf's open in adobe reader by default and not in internet explorer? Or
alternativly do you know of any other pdf reader I can use?

Nickus

Re: Reading PDF documents frustrating

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

There's also a neat little package known simply as PDF Reader. Those
who have tried Thunder will know what I'm talking about, as it comes
bundled in the same archive file. The controls are pretty basic, but
it's rock steady in PDF mode. You can even make and save changes,
although they have to be saved as either HTML or text. Search
capabilities are almost nonexistent, but the JAWS find should make up
for that. Furthermore, it's not finicky about the size of file you
load, and will simply read, without repetition, glitches, or gotchas.
It's not so stable in HTML format, but that's why The Good Lord made Web
browsers.

I've become a big fan of sending PDF's to Robobraille.org for e-mail
conversion. You can first download the file, then either use the web
form at www.robobraille.org or e-mail the document to
convert@robobraille.org.
You can get the document back in any of several formats including
braille and Word.

In Adobe Reader X bring up the preferences (Edit->Preferences), then on
the Internet page make sure "Display PDF in browser" is not checked.

The layout might be slightly different with other versions but I believe
this particular setting has been fairly stable so it shouldn't be too
hard to find.
